    Lots of really good points, and I agree on the way Jack sees the game. I also agree we need to bulk up, mainly to keep the ball. Against Dons it was obvious it was more a head to head in the first 45, we have pace and skill, I bet in training we look a fantastic outfit.
    So its not just about height , its about weight- Cue Maradona, Messi and Neymar..............

    Mate even if he dropped to say 60% that's still 22 wins, add 5 draws that's 71 points, which is what Hibs went up on last year............. Assuming last 11 games we win 5 lose 5 and draw 1 
    To put this into context and why Saints and 10-1 on at some bookies
    For Livi to get to 71 points they need 28/36 points available or 9 wins and a  draw from last 12 games............ Livi have won only 50% of their games, they would have to increase that to 75%
    United need 31/ 42 Or 10 wins and a draw out their last 14...............  United have won 53% of their games they would have to increase that to 72% in their last 14........... Remembering that one of them or both if they draw will be further out the equation if/ when they drop points.............
    We really should beat Brechin and if we do, and Livi or United drop points watch our odds get even shorter................

    Where you considering applying for Jack's job if he had left?
    Jack has a 68% Win percentage this season,  Livi have 50%. Utd 53%, and  Pars and Morton 37%,
    The winners of any league is about the whole season, and so far Jack is miles ahead on tactics, and I have also seen a few win ugly games this season

    A 68% win rate is phenomenal. Not many managers outside the Old Firm achieve those levels. Hope he can keep it going next season.

    It's all about opinions. Agenda's and negativity are two different animals.  
    I haven't watched the second video yet but Jack appears to favour a style whereby a player like Sutton who thrives on route one style balls into the box is not part of the plan. He wants players who move the ball about and create goals from the 17 yard area not the 6 yard area.  That style of play just doesn't suit JS. When he tries to control the ball and hold it up in these situations he generally falls on his arse and achieves nothing. The only goal he scored, which was a cracker, was the one at Dumbarton where he seemed to jump miles above everyone to head it in from 6 yards.  He doesn't have the pace and it doesn't suit his style to run onto balls on the edge of the box and smash them in the way the way Morgan, Reilly and Smith, etc do. 
    The big problem as everyone can see is Plan B.  I think it was Mark Whartburton who was ridiculed for saying Plan B is to do Plan A better.  Gordon Strachan was criticised for saying our players are too wee. Jack I think is a Do Plan A better type guy who believes in his wee players. On some occassions Jack has shown how  our wee team can destroy bigger stronger teams like ICT and Falkirk and give them a good humping but if that team has any kind of ability and Gile, we can't cope. Livi and Dundee Utd away being the prime examples. Both these teams used phyisical, psychological and rule bending tactics to stop us playing. Kyle Magennis is up for a good scrap but i'm not sure who else is.
    While John Sutton has something to offer to other teams he doesn't fit our style and isn't that good at the role he's been given. Playing for another team he would probably turn into a Ryan Hardie and score two against us every week though, so for that reason let's just keep him. Jack picked Hypollitte to play his system hopefully he'll be better suited to it than John who has been a great servant to the club but I think his time has come to an end.
    Our wee team should see this out but we might need to bulk up a bit for next season. Then again Spain were a bunch of wee guys when they won the world cup so maybe that's what Fitzy was thinking when he said we'd win the Premiership next year

    I really miss Stuart.................. wonder what he is doing now, his predictions were eh.............. a bit wide of the mark
    Maybe he ran the Hilary Clinton campaign , or the Nuclear Disarmament Campaign in NK....................  Or the Longtimecoming  Stay in the EU campaign, or backed the Scots against the Welsh at Rugby, or  against the English at Culloden...................
    I am just searching for the post he may have put about us never winning the Champions League, that's certainly worth a punt
