  1. I can assure you this is me keeping my post constructive.[emoji106]
  2. The boy is 20 years of age, yet in your very next post you say he may not have the "engine" to play centre midfield? What age do you need to be to play this position?Where do you see him playing? He broke into the team as a fill in left back and after failing there people said give him a chance in his real position. If you want to cut to the chase, he is nowhere near good enough to be playing football at this level at this time. And if he does want a future in the game he needs to go and work extremely hard at his weaknesses of which there are many. Taking responsibility comes in many forms, looking interested would be a start. Not marking "ghosts" outside the box would be another. Not falling over at the slightest touch would be another. I have no idea why the manager picks him most weeks, so that is even more worrying in my opinion. Just because a player came through our youth ranks, does not mean they are exempt from comment.
  3. Why can you not? He plays centre mid, yet is lethargic, cannot head the ball, cannot kick with his right foot, gives away stupid fouls and in general takes no responsibility.
  4. Okay I will go for an Uber moan ..shambolic all over the pitch and has been for the bulk of the season. The manager should thank his lucky stars there has been no crowds in as they wouldn't put up with that dross. Sadly the defence now looks as nervy as the rest of the team. Doesn't help when the manager cannot work out whether to go with a 3 or a 4, he over thinks everything. It doesn't help we have played the whole season without a left back, as the one we have on loan proved in the cup semi to not be good enough. JDH is never a holding midfielder in a million years and I won't start on the boy next to him, as he seems to be a fans favourite, but offers nothing every week. The seasons almost up and the manager still cannot work out who to play up front. The only hope for next week is the St.Johnstone goalie loses the power of his arms, the same as the Killie goalie, as he is the reason we have a semi to look forward to.
  5. All depends on what you count as success or failure, if success is avoiding a relegation scrap we should just about manage that. Midfield and forward has had no continuity or style of play for the majority of the season. As someone else has pointed out we have actually only played well in a handful of games all season. We have a manager who spends to much time worrying about the opposition rather than letting them worry about us. Our "success" this season has been built solely on our very reliable goalkeeper and the defence. We have turned JDH from a box to box midfielder into a very average holding midfielder and you could probably say the same about Ethan beside him. Durmus is asked one week to play as a wing back then the next a winger is it any wonder he looks lost at times. The least said about the right hand side of midfield the better, where Connolly and McAllister compete most weeks to see who can run about the most and contribute nothing to the team. We have a multitude of forwards and for me, they all fall into the "mehh" category, oh for a Somner, McDougall, McAvennie... sorry showing my age. Finally we have a manager that overthinks everything and seems scared to take risks and today was another perfect example of this. To summarise I feel sorry for the guys at the back, but going forward that is not a top six team i'm afraid.
  6. Has been for weeks unfortunately, I struggle to see how the manager cannot see this.
  7. Cannot wait to get back to the stadium, not to watch the football so much, but to get away from that commentator. If you had a season ticket next to him gibbering pish you would move seats for sure. Bla Bla Bla about heart disease, when the ball is ricocheting around our box while 2 of our players are lying flat on the ground. Do your sponsorship stuff at the right time ya fud!! Rant over.. credit as usual to the defence and goalie, thought McCarthy was a stick out. Midfield to front was pretty hit or miss as it has been for the bulk of the season. You certainly could not argue with the work rate today though, a very valuable 3 points!
  8. Agreed but this was the managers decision to run this season with such a small squad. We have been lucky that the defenders have remained relatively fit apart from some early suspensions. Who knows what we do if we lost either McCarthy or Shauggnessy for a lengthy period? We have also played the whole season without a recognised left back. We shouldn't be in the position that we are playing players when only 75% fit! It also doesn't help we have a player on a 3 year deal that 18 months in cannot finish a game or if he does, is not fit enough to start the next game.
  9. One of the few midfielders brave enough to show for the ball, so is going to get caught occasionally. I would much rather have his and Durmus attitude than some others who spend the game dithering, hiding or tackling with their wrong foot.
  10. Injuries are now mounting up, so will need to find a formula that suits the remaining players for the next 7 games to secure 6th spot. This would be a tremendous achievement given the trials and tribulations we have faced this season. If we manage this I for one wouldn't care to much about the after split results as our squad maybe extremely stretched by then. Hopefully get at least a point on Saturday as they are average at best just now.
  11. I think that is for challenges inside the penalty box only...outside the box is still the same as before.
  12. A bit harsh on Foley, imo, a couple of not so good performances and we begin throwing the age thing at him. From memory did he not cover the most ground last year in most games? Just checked and his last game for us was beating Aberdeen in the cup back on 28/11/20.. not played a minute since. You can only assume there are some issues behind the scenes, or has been hit hard by the virus. (If he had it) As for your point on Mason, we would probably be better just starting with 10!
