  1. Yes, Jack Ross will rightly be our manager next season and in the Championship also !
  2. Its pretty simple really. Irvine at right back is a better player than Stelios as are the other defenders and midfield players holding the jersey at the moment. If any injuries though he is a decent option
  3. You seriously think its too late for SMFC to survive. I'm looking for 8th now and see no obvious reason to doubt it. Davis injury a big blow but now time for Jack Baird to step up and show what he has to JR. Take Sutton out the team and we are half the team up front. Jack Ross has tried it a couple of times this season first with Shankland and then he used Clarkson at Dumbarton and we were junk till Sutton came on in both games. Can't get my head around the criticism of John Sutton.
  4. I guess its all opinions but I thought Loy put a shift in when he came on. Couldn't fault him personally. I think your being a bit harsh with the not committed stuff. I think all the players at the club are showing commitment.
  5. Cammy Smith has been excellent for us. I'd start both him and Loy with Sutton leading the line on Wednesday. I don't think Todd gives enough for us. Decent player but Loy and Smith are better. Todd would only be an option of JR wants the width which he tends to go with on either side.
  6. Couldn't agree more. If we do go down which I don't think we will then JR will have us back in one season. Not the slightest doubt in my mind. If we stay up I don't think we'll keep him too long. I think he has done a superb job in the transfer window. Identified all the weaknesses in the side and sorted them as best he can. We look a really decent outfit now which would be top four easily but for the junk Rae left.
  7. Got to disagree I though it added to atmosphere. The result generated the Hibs atmosphere.
  8. Loy scored a lot of goals in this league for Falkirk and got a move up on the back of it. Proven at this level and well capable of getting goals for us.. Stop trashing players for one game where he misses a good chance and look at what he has done and can do for us
  9. You had good reason with Craig , Murray and Rae. Jack Ross is doing well and if he keeps us up which I think he will then I think we'll be well in the hunt next season. Top talent of a coach and I'm not sure we will keep him that long
  10. Sutton leads the line well, we are not the same side when he doesn't play. I'd start Loy on Wednesday instead of Todd but JR might want the width Todd gives. We overplayed in the box today and didn't get the breaks but at least we picked up another point on Ayr against a dangerous opponent.
  11. Keep playing like we played today and we will stay up. I haven't the slightest doubt. Dunfermline are a good outfit and improving all the time. We were the better side today especially in the seconf half and deserved to win. Didn't take our chances and didn't get the breaks but maybe that will happen on Wednesday ! On todays performance level we will beat all of Dumbarton, Ayr and Raith in the home games and are capable of picking up other wins away from home. I'm sure we can get the play off place and wouldn't rule our 8th but that may be pushing it. If we get the play off then I'd be stunned if we go down. Ayr are utter junk, a really poor outfit and being four point behind them with a home game to come against them then I think it would be a disgrace if this squad was 10th
  12. What relegation. We are not going down !
  13. Whats Mark Warburton got to do with it ? I firmly believe that Rodgers should be testing himself at the highest level and not inflating his already enormous ego in a backyard league in Scotland.
  14. I wouldn't listen to Rodgers comments. He's hiding up in Scotland. In early forties he should be managing and learning at a much higher level, not infalting his ego with a club who have a spending capacity light years ahead of the rest. He had a good 6 months spell at Liverpool and then it all went downhill. Totally failed at Reading. Good man manager but not the mesiah he is being hailed as. Eddie Howe, Paul Clement, Sean Dyche are streets ahead and testing themselves and learning at the top !.
  15. Jack Ross will keep us up this season and I think he'll do it without a play off. Thing is he may not be our manager next season because a bigger club willl recongnise the talent and appoint him. I think this guy is the one of the top coaching talent of the young generation of managers. Bright, articulate, respected by players, knows how to manage people and knows a player. Top drawer IMO and we won't have him for long. So enjoy it whilst he is here cause it aint going to be long !
  16. Thought we were brilliant tonight. Best perfomance from SMFC side for 3 seasons now. Thought big McKenzie was brilliant alongside Davies tonight. Mallan and McGinn in midfield were superb. On this form I'm suprised McGinn was released by Wycombe. Need to enjoy McGinn's perfomances for the rest of the season as he'll be long gone next. Way to good for Championship in Scotland.
  17. Mallan now showing what he is capable of at long last. Dominated the middle of the park tonight alongside McGinn. That is the perfomance of a player we should have been seeing for quite a while. That is the type of performance that merits interest from Barnsley. Playing like that he will have a chance in England. Great to see.
  18. I was getting a bit unsure of wether JR was going to turn it round but no doubts now. Starting to do a brilliant job, I think we'll stay up without play offs now given the attitude and performance of the whole squad over the last 2 league games. We were immense on Sat and tonight was another step up
  19. Watched last 30 mins of Hibs game last night and we can match them. Yesterday was marked improvement in the team. Attitude was first class throughout, we defended for our lives and created chances throughout. Could easily have 4 or 5. We have not had a BIG win against a GOOD side for a LONG time and this really is the time to do it. With Ayr playing Raith at the same time, I feel we have to at minimum match their result or worst case its back to square one. Wish Hibs had won last night as I think they will be back up for it again on Wednesday. Was hoping to catch them on an off night !
  20. If we lose on Saturday then the Jack Ross comments on Saturday night should be interesting ? A win and its game on
  21. He started Clarkson at Dumbarton !. He's won 2 in 15 and we are still shipping horrendous goals. Raith probably should have had a penalty awarded at the end of our 1-0 win ?. Not overly impressed with Ross so far but next few weeks will give us a better idea. I have this feeling that Ross may be out his depth in Championship but could get us out of League One if we land up there, but takes us nowehere after that !
  22. Agree. Not sure what JR is seeing though. Clarkson started on Sat !!!. For me Storrie was lucky to stay on the park on Sat, looks a bit of a loose cannon. Losing abysmal goals. If that keeps up we are down. I think we are down anyway if Ayr beat Dumbarton on Sat
  23. No need to crawl back into any hole. I'm impressed with your reply and like you hope that Steve can capture his best form again and get back the player he has the potential to be
  24. If Ayr beat Dumbarton on Saturday I think we are down. 10 points is too much I feel for this current sqaud to haul back. I don't think we are good enough to beat Ayr twice and beat Dunfermline at home. We can't beat a poor Dumbarton team and a point was all we deserved on Saturday. Ayr will be battling for all its worth and I don't see that in us. Just not showing it at all. So for me I think we are virtually gone if Ayr get 3 points on Saturday Also have my doubts about the ability of management team to get us out of it. Starting Clarkson for Sutton on Saturday just makes me despair.
  25. The buck stops with Stevie Mallan as to why he hasn't done it in the Scottish Championship. Nobody else. Blaming fans is a nonsense. He has talent no doubt but for me he has went backwards. Maybe that is the situation at the club etc but I doubt it, I think the buck stops at Stevies door. At the moment he wouldn't get near the Barnsley first eleven. I seen piles of English football at Championship level, 75 of the 92 teams and some 2 and 3 times over and he's way short at the moment. The potential is there but for me if he went to Barnsley he would be there a couple of seasons and no more. We have a guy who has been released by Wycombe in English League 2 who is head and shoulders above him at the moment. What McGinn is doing is what Steve Mallan should have been doing all season. Do we really think if it was just an issue whith what position he was playing that JR wouldn't accomodate it given where we are? Not meaning to have a go btw just saying it as I see it.
