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

If we lose, I'll also be blaming the players. Like most poorly performing teams, it's about more than just the manager.

Totally agree but it is the managers job to make the players understand a tactic, motivate them for the game and make the right subs in a game.

I said after we got drubbed in the cup that Robbo needed 10 points from the next 6 games. We got 7 and have ended in an utter embarrassment! 

Do the right thing and fuck off. Take that useless prick McHugh with you

Final nail in his coffin today for me .He’s given us a few good memories but it’s been mostly terrible.

Yeah, I think that's it for me now too. Absolutely unforgivable.

It may well be it for a few of us but I’d say there’s zero chance of him getting binned.

Many of us demanded 6 points from the St Mirren a Dundee games and we duly got it but the clock is still ticking.

Whilst none of us were realistically expecting to get anything today, it really shouldn’t be beyond us to keep it respectable as other teams have done. 

I certainly wouldn’t trust him with anymore funds in January based on the summer recruitment. 

December will make or break him. Not only can we not sustain any more capitulations like that, but we can’t also not pick up anything at all, regardless of how tough the fixtures are.

The results against st mirren and dundee(which have just papered over the cracks imo) have bought him more time,sadly i don't see us getting rid of him anytime soon.

Standard of football is garbage. Players not playing with any great intensity (a few notable exceptions). This shit show today shows a complete lack of professionalism from top to bottom. Don't think he will go but major improvements needed.  A  humping by The Sheep Shaggers and the clamour for him to go will grow.

How do we think he is doing?
Answers on a P45.
Sadly a change is now required before the January transfer deadline, and before extended contracts are handed out to any current players. Thanks for the memories Mr Robinson but we need to freshen things up.

We've got 2 weeks to get a new manager. Alan Burrows PLEASE do the right thing. Robinson's time is up.

Robinsons style of punt and chase football has driven some fans away.  Some of his signings have been questionable at best (some just plain horrific). The results have been garbage for some time papered over by some wins but after that nobody can claim he would be hard done to if he was sacked.

Burrows won’t get rid of Robbo and will hang onto him until the bitter end - getting rid would show his failings by appointing him via the back door in the first place and then giving him a blank cheque to squander the small amount of money the club and ultimately the well society had on utter dross over the summer . The squad is unbalanced and poor without a goal scorer or wide players . Other than dunne our defence can’t run .

Special mentions to Hartley and Aldred - love to talk a good game , talk themselves up as hard men and they go on the pitch and are slower than John Sutton and both are soft as shite. 

I still don’t think we will finish bottom and I accept we have no Devine right to be in the top 6 but I do expect as a supporter and a paying customer to watch professionals on the pitch and get entertained from time to time . That has happened this season and won’t under Robbo .

He’s a dinosaur when it comes to set up and tactics with his long ball punt and the players he has bought have simply been bought to follow that ethos .

Our support is small but loyal but it will dwindle if we need to put up with this guy for much longer .

Needs a big performance against Aberdeen to get the taste of that defeat out of my mouth.

The fixture list goes thus....

Aberdeen (H)

Livingston (A)

Celtic (H)
Hearts (A)
St. Johnstone (A)

Celtic (A)

If we can't get points out of the next two I don't see us getting any out of the next four.

Totally agree with this - a tough run coming up and I'm not convinced we’ll take points from any of them.

I don’t think we’ll get anything from any of them and there could quite easily be a few horsings in there.

If that’s indeed the case we should ask for a new manager from Santa!

I reckon we are currently ‘good enough’ to scrape two points from a possible 18. 

Aberdeen (H) - Defeat

Livingston (A) - Draw

Celtic (H)  - Defeat
Hearts (A) - Defeat
St. Johnstone (A) - Draw 

Celtic (A) - Defeat

dont mind loosing to Celtic, but must win at home to Aberdeen.

 

A draw would be so so.

why would you not mind losing to Celtic?

 

As for your rampage against McHugh...going to wind it in? There is no way on Earth that he deliberately handled that ball

Games a bogey.

I would punt him today...not just a knee jerk reaction after yesterday.  We have been shocking all season.  Football is rubbish, tactics are rubbish, signings are rubbish, improvement is rubbish.

I would ask Joe Jordan if he fancied it.

From the words of the song " if you've gotta go you better go now " . Can't live on past cup results has no idea how to get the best out the players and playing them out of position helps nobody

Needs to strengthen up our defence. Stop playing cads right back inexperienced in professional football in general, never mind right back. Also could do with his pace on the wings. Miss when we played a 3 up top with two fast wingers (ainsworth and Johnson with Sutton up top).

Monday afternoon and Robinson still not sacked....I just hope this doesn't end up with a Robinson out. McGee/Malpas type demo behind the POD. He doesn't deserve that but if Alan Burrows is going to do nothing then I fear a demo is exactly what he'll get after we get pumped by a very much in form Aberdeen in 2 weeks time...ACT NOW.

He was never going to get sacked after Saturday and probably still won’t if we lose against Aberdeen.  My personal opinion is as long as we stay out of the bottom two the board will stick with him.

He won't be fired this week.

A heavy defeat by Aberdeen and it becomes a possibility.

With the run of games coming up, I honestly can't see him lasting into 2019, but as I've said previously I don't see much point in changing the manager right now as we need to give anyone coming in the chance to bring in new players and fixtures that we have a decent chance of getting a 'bounce' from.

Bringing in a new manager now and I don't see how things are going to change much.  Get these tough fixtures over, grin and bare it and we'll see where we are at the end of December.
