    Pushing for the First XI

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Brilliant to see Cadden back in a well shirt, the boy's a powerhouse and a leader, i'd personally be happy if we offered the hastie deal to him, he is proven, versatile and can keep improving.

    2018/19 game 25: St Mirren (A) Wednesday 6th February

    An incredible run! We clearly have a decent generation of young players coming through, each of Campbell, Turnbull and Hastie have arrived in the first team fully formed and looking undroppable. Would be sad not to see Cadden 's energy and power back before he moves on, if that's what's happening. Manager gets huge credit for the last month, blushes all round for contemplating his sacking, including myself.

    Would be disappointing to see bigi go, particularly to a rival. Good guy, good player and much better chance of making an impact in new formation. Hibs move also an odd one i think? Just on window generally, turnbull has been the biggest boost. Plus rosco, he came unfit but seems to have been written off because he's, unfit. Could still be a dynamite signing and an additional season looks plausible.

    How were we set up today?

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    Almost all of the upside here is premised on the idea other clubs will come hunting in the summer and he will voluntarily leave without compensation. With respect, that is not a 'look at the facts' analysis. If we finish 10th having exited both cups early, why will he be poached? The realistic upside on waiting til the summer and moving him on then, is a few months' wages.

    Take the point that at this stage of his career RMcC may be best as a second striker, but that is the standard approach of our manager and the new signings will fit fine in a 442. If you watch McC's goals on Youtube over the last few years he basically scores the same 4 again and again - 1. pens; 2. belter free kicks; 3. placed shots from around the 18 yard line; 4. poached sitters at the back post. That makes him pretty versatile at our level as he'll find these kind of opportunities from any advanced position.

    Best of luck to mcmanus, it's a step up sadly but he probably deserves it. Don't know why but i'll remember him by his wildly agro, edgy / cringy press conferences in the play off season.

    Never thought I’d see the day accies get one over us.

    Making cool banners is better than stealing cool banners. The theft and the video are a witless tribute.

    Totally behind the manager desite the present form. Post-fan-ownership our lowly squad budget was always going to kick in hard over time. We need a solid, pragmatic and clear-headed manager to take us through this period and keep us competitive and in a position to sell players upwards. That's exactly what we've got.

    Livingston Man of the Match

    Bigi by mile, a great wee player he has done so little wrong in a Well shirt and just needs his own and his managers confidence to become a mainstay. You put Bigi and Campbell on the teamsheet and go from there, experiment or mix and match to find the right third man in the middle. Also enjoyed Hartley's backwards glancing headers to Carson every five minutes of second half.

    Bullying claim

    Neville's response is self evidently out out of step with Robinson's comments and he should publically apologise to our manager and club. No chance sadly.

    Gauld would be phenomenal. Hard not to get hyped, especially as it doesn't sound 100% mental, and SR seemed to be suggesting the new midfielder is done deal.

    Scottish Cup Final v Celtic (Hampden) 19/05/18 15:00

    Still a few minutes left but i'd say celtic failing to score in two games is definitely a good thing. Also liking Gordon's absence and Griffiths being rusty. This is going to be easy.

    I take it there will be tickets at away gate. Neither ours or their site confirms, pretty frustrating.
