Robbo still has credit in the bank for me. He was asked to steer us clear of relegation and bring on youngsters, both of which he's done this season included. That said he must take a good share of the responsibility for our meltdown since December. We're still 3rd though at least as of today.  Poor recruitment? Yes especially with regard to strikers and defenders. As far as Tait is concerned, I would not award him another deal. He has gone backwards this season losing what little pace he had and is not defending well.  Bear in mind though that he'll be very envious of Jim Goodwin and Tom Wright's budgets. We have one of the lowest playing budgets in the league and its now showing.   

Credit has run out and which young players have made a breakthrough this season?Back to the budget again its down to Robinson to sign players he thinks he can coach to be better and on that front he has failed miserably he has wasted the budget on pure dross

When you play teams in Scotland so regularly it is nigh on impossible not to get sussed very quickly.  You can't keep a half decent player under the radar for long and nor can you hit upon a successful formation and expect it to be successful for eternity.  

I think we've had good success with the formation towards the end of last season and the refresh of personnel in the summer perhaps gave it some extra shelf life in the opening months of this season as opponents had to become accustomed to the newbies.

Our difficulty currently is that if there is a desire to go for something different formation or tactics wise you don't have the extended time the break gave us last January, nor the opportunity to bring fresh blood to the squad.  

In response to your first paragraph we also have the same option to suss out the opposition teams and exploit their weaknesses but apparently they do it better than us.

We are actually still 3rd in the league with one of the smallest budgets and above Aberdeen, Hearts, and  Hibs.  We are certainly on a poor run but if his signings are as bad as some are making out why are we not bottom ? Some perspective maybe ?

And yet they are all below us in the league.
