Europa League Campaign 2020-2021

Yep badly let down by our 2 internationals for the goals.  And the summer signings really have been a joke.   Anyway onwards and upwards

We certainly don’t have enough (any) quality defenders.

Should be the new club motto.

Annoying thing is this team were there for the taking. Just needed composure and to be switched on which we haven't done. Still too many floaty balls into the box rather than whipped ones.

Dec and O'Donnell looked suspect at times and Lamie from first touch to positional play to decision making is playing at a level above his ability.

Never rated Stephen ODonnell when I saw him with Scotland, he looked well out of his depth....he still looks out his depth at Motherwell. 

Can he not just get a decent cross in ?

Gallagher doesn’t look same player as last year...pity tonight, they weren’t great but obviously good enough.

Well two things are certain. 1) were out of Europe 2) Nathan Mcginley is utterly fucking rotten

More than decent performance overall, especially in the heat, but badly let down by our captain and fellow international defender.

Our players just don't have the mental discipline not to make stupid errors. It's piss poor coaching through the age groups through into the first team.

We have done some things well but shot ourselves in the foot as we always do in Europe.

I thought pre season things were looking well but with the loss of Turnbull and the complete average Jo's this is a hard hard season. 

Campbell, Watt, Carson are the players with passmarks so far this season .

So frustrating. They were there for the taking but you can’t afford to make the stupid mistakes we did. Gallagher deserves an absolute rollicking, he’s been below par all season and that was unacceptable from our captain. 

Hopefully this team get pumped in the next round, horrible cunts.

Will Jake Carroll ever be fit again?  Even Dunne is better than some of these guys

I have a degree of sympathy on the penalty front, these teams are so street wise its incredible. The referees buy it as well. Saying that, today's was a pen but generally speaking.

sadly we lack quality - lots of players who work hard but little creativity.  Can't remember working their keeper or their defence. 

We  have had 3 decent opportunities in this , so not bad in a European game, bad miss from Gallagher in second half

Don't think you can say it's a decent performance when we've not put in a single decent ball against a fairly average team, gifted goals and ended up getting gubbed.

We've been exposed as not being good enough against modest European opposition.

I’m not going to rant and rave. Despite our lack of quality we were coping well and in the game. But go and shoot ourselves in the other foot.  Two lapses of concentration killed us.

No chance of getting new player in either as we have sold Turnbull for 3million and made 750k from Europe but no doubt we will get the no budget left speech

It's surely that we are dumb than every single other team being street wise. 

We got done by part timers last week.

All about taking your chances at this level. Not like Beer Sheva have been creating loads either but when they did they put them away.

Lets face it Plzen are going to beat this mob so what would they have done to us?

Thats what annoys me most, Beer Sheva are bang average, no better than what we face in the SPL, the game had extra time and pens all over it till we gifted them the 1st goal, we had no belief from the start,  never got in their faces from the off, which coupled with shambolic defending was always going to end badly.

We had three chances at 11 Vs 11 which was the same as them. 

Considering we have guys like Grimmy, McGinlay, Lamie and Polworth playing we are doing very well to compete.
