    I think we have a squad that is finally starting to click with the changes and additions we have made.

    Doyle-Hayes and Erhahon are keeping other really good players out of the team with their solid defensive and playmaking in the middle of the park.
    Connolly has given us that pace we lacked and has been a complete menace to opposition
    Durmus' return on the other side
    A recognised left-back in Mason
    Taits freedom to bomb forward
    *McGrath's freedom to play behind the striker and cause a goal threat
    Every single player is keeping their place on merit and the dropping of other players has been completely justified with a few just been unlucky to good form.

    We have an even better chance of reaching the final now than we did back in 2013. 

    I am so proud of the team and have to credit Jim for turning this around on a magnificent run, where he could have potentially been on a shaky peg previously. Players now starting to gel has given me hope that we can finish the season strong with the addition of another striker.

    We should have taken youth players to Aberdeen for the away league tie we lost at the death. Was this us just taking the cheapest option so that we did not have to test additional players? That was the game where we had a chance to run down the clock with substitutions but Goodwin decided against it.
    Personally I would rather we had taken a chance with youths against Motherwell and Hamilton than just forfeit the games 3-0.

    I'm sure that rumour was quashed over on Twitter by someone involved at the club in some capacity.

    That was my thoughts too. I'd imagine from the timing of the Kibble involvement tail end of last year, this is their first involvement with the annual accounts, so it may have been flagged during that process. 
    The club must not trust anyone if they have had to make it public themselves so they can avoid speculation.

    The first half was a walk in the park though Hopkin played a blinder second half. We were in such a comfortable mindset with them sitting back first half, we didn't know how to handle them sitting so high in the second half.  
    There is no point of having so many attackers on at once if we can't even put away one shot on target.

    I do not want JG to go, but I am baffled by his substitutions tonight.

    We should have been out of sight by HT, so why make the changes he did, when he did ?

    Connolly has to start the next game.

    If you put Erwin on, don’t take off the guy who is crossing the ball.

    Need to win well on Saturday to qualify. A draw, even with a win on pens, is unlikely to allow us to progress.

    Ultimately very disappointed.

    I'd say its far too early to call, though on current form, we really need to start picking up points fast. That game in-hand against them could reveal a lot.

    Gary I know where you are coming from but the shape of the team last night was the best it has been all season.The point is where do you fit Connolly in the starting lineup.Fraser was great in the middle of the back three McCarthy looked comfy on the right of centre and the full backs were bombing forward.We had good young energy in midfield with Cammy playing just behind the striker.I think we took Utd by surprise and at no time did I feel in danger.No for the moment Jim has given up on outright wingers because of the formation and Connolly will be seen as an impact player along with Kyle.The signs are good we had a strong bench last night and still have Flynn and Durmus to call on.

    I really don't see the issue with Tony releasing the statement. 

    If people want to use a platform and their profile to spout nonsense about other clubs, then expect said clubs to stick up for themselves. 

    Will be interesting to see MR's views when the shoes on the other foot and Motherwell have positive cases within their squad.
    To honestly think the club would go out their way to make stuff up to cancel a game, when there are consequences involved including the team being weakened for this weekends game against a club closer to us in the table.
    Reading on Twitter, its very possible that players picked up the virus whilst playing against Killie earlier in the month, then again it could have been from a household member.

    Chancer?????  To me he is showing great initiative and drive. He regularly writes about all aspects of Scottish football far more incisively and intelligently than Tom English who is the Chief Sports writer on BBC Scotland. His video calls with players at home are insightful. But most of all his content is not about the Old Firm - unheard of in Scottish media.
    But he is only 19 with an HND so he must be shite.

    Correct. The idea that Magennis wanted to stay is laughable. 5 year deal at Hibs to stay at SMFC, do me a favour. 
    So the club have done the right thing. Take the money, get thro COVID and see if there is enough for Jan window. 
    By Jan we will also know if Goodwin is cutting it and probably well before.
    Goodwin has to get on with it. The squad showed on Friday evening what it can do and its his job to get that level of performance and commitment from now on. 
    SMFC made a silly statement to placate a number of moron fans when they should have held their dignity and let Magennis go with grace.

    The decision to let Mullen go was ridiculous. He was most certainly a decent option to have in attack and given the circumstances the world is in, sometimes you're better to stick for now.

    With all due respect, we needed cover in defence and we have now got one. Saves us probably from relying on one of our midfielders dropping  into  defence when we are short. Still, folk raging as per usual.  

    For anyone bringing up Jack Baird into conversation, he is 25 years old and he was beyond that 'potential' stage. We now have  a  19 year old who Jim  obviously trusts to come in when ready. We  have had plenty of success from players coming in to defence at this age, with Scott Cuthbert, Kirk Broadfoot  (17) and Dummett to name a few.
