Youth team sub

Youth team sub (3/14)



  1. Interesting from Irish media point of view. Kevin Doyle highlighting McGrath’s performance and questioning why he didn’t play
  2. I agree mate and have the same issues as you and others. I have had no response to my emails (sent to both addresses). Perhaps they don’t want our money and support, who knows 🤷‍♂️ on a positive note it’s good to see that many buds are getting their tickets renewed with a good initial uptake 👍🏻
  3. Getting the same message here bud. Does anyone know if this has been solved? Thanks
  4. Predictable and typical Scotland. The dust has settled and the feeling of deflation is still there. Today was our opportunity to be creative, to be bold and to give talent a go. Our chance in a tournament where we are playing at home to go out and make a big step to make history. Now I hear all the ‘let’s stay behind the team’ I get it, I honestly do. I get ‘we had 19 chances’ but how do you account for the absolute amateur play from our goalie for the second goal But today we did the typical Scotland thing and blew it, well and truly! Now the younger generation can understand the feeling of all those glorious failures of years gone by…. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
  5. Sheffield Wednesday were after him too
  6. Three solid signings with SPFL experience. Surprised St Johnstone let Tanser go, to be honest. A good days business all round. 👍🏻
  7. For me I would sum the season up as comfortable. We, probably from January onwards and after we got the points deduction reversed, gained enough momentum and points to (on hindsight) take the usual relegation dogfight away. We also achieved some good away results this season that helped massively. That, in my view, is the ‘success’ as for the cup semi finals, I would have to agree with Ronnie’s view whereby going out at that stage does not amount to success. I firmly believe that we were sucked into the hype of both teams we played in the semis were on form at the time and, to a large degree, negated our tactics and confidence. but, all in all, a 7th place finish is progress so well done to the boys for that.
  8. A typical end of season game but great that we got the 7th place finish. We deserved that over the season and feared that we would drift down the table after missing top 6. we were comfortable in possession, although we seemed to panic when they went down to 10. Brophy looked fit and sharp today which was nice to see. Cammy and Jamie very good on link up.
  9. As it stands we don’t need a winner but our play this half deserves it
  10. Some of our link up play has been a joy this half. Shame about the end product.
  11. I totally agree, bud, but these are the margins that we have to deal with. We should have had enough about us to be more positive in our play. I would argue that St. Johnstone/Livingston are no better than us but they believe more in the game plan that there manager sets out for them.
  12. I read many posts that we were beaten by ‘the better team’ today as was said after the Livingston semi final. I, after a few hours of reflection, am still finding that hard to believe and is nothing more than an excuse. I have seen us play in many semi finals over a number of years and, in my opinion, these two provided us with the best opportunities to progress. so my thought is, why are St. Johnstone and Livingston ‘better’ than us? we have the best squad we’ve had in years and the manager has been very well supported yet we have fallen at every hurdle this season, apart from not in relegation with games to spare. so, from my own humble opinion, this season has been no more successful than the play off season. Only my opinion, mind but poor game management has a helluva lot to answer for...
  13. I thought we were very weak in the middle of the park and, no harm to him, but Ethan way out of his depth. poor, lazy defending for the first goal. Durmus and Alnwick were top for us today. i understand that people are saying it’s been a good season. I reserve judgment as we could have done so much better. the only plus for me, at this particular moment, is that we were safe with games to spare
  14. Well there goes another one...... substitutions key today, in my view! theirs was inspired and ours were just baffling! was Tait injured? I also felt Dennis was beginning to find some space before being hooked.
  15. I don’t agree with this ‘we have a cup semifinal’ or ‘the game means nothing’ so rest players! momentum is everything and every game is important. If we were in relegation trouble, which we have been and probably will be again in the future, we’d be raging if someone put out a weakened team. Be careful what you wish for and we are not a team who can afford to be arrogant. don’t get me wrong I hope it pays off next weekend but losing at home to Hamilton and dropping in the league is still hard to accept.
