    Erhahon, whilst his performance was not great, still had a far better game on Saturday than JDH.

    There's no point in sugar-coating it, JDH has been playing rotten since well before his injury at Aberdeen. Like most others, I thought at the start of his time with us he was excellent but he's retreated deeper and deeper and now is basically a guy who hangs about in front of the back 4 and makes 5 yard sideways passes all day.

    What is he actually contributing to the team that makes him so important to our plans? He doesn't score goals, he doesn't provide assists, he doesn't create chances and isn't particularly strong in the tackle. We are told he has a dazzling array of passing but we've not seen that for the last 3 months or so since the early days of him being here.

    Spot on. 👍

    Agree, we don't want this season to become a damp squib , surely players are looking at their own contracts but for god sake Goody needs to stop persisting with Lee Erwin, get Dennis , if fit , on from start and fecking go for it, its a bit like waiting for opposition to score as it was under Gus  

    Agreed. Despite being one of Erwin’s biggest critics I’d concede that there were aspects of his game that were a bit better on Saturday. Some of his hold up/link up play was better, but as an actual striker he remains completely inept. He simply needs to be dropped now as he is nowhere near good enough.

    We'd still be paying his wages so, if Goodie thinks his head is in the right frame, we'd be daft not to play him. In fact I'd go further. If he really wants that "bigger move", he'll bust a gut for the team.

    Agree Goodie will be the best placed to decide but I wouldn’t play him just because we’re paying his wages. We’ll be paying the wages of lots of players who won’t feature for the rest of the season.

    Get real here people. Every player is looking for the best deal and some. like Doyle Hayes, are likely to command a bit more attention than others. Professional players are like most contract workers. They'll go where they get the best deal. The club put down a firm offer and wait to see if someone betters it. No harm. No foul.

    I agree on the no harm no foul, but I would drop him now for the rest of the season. We need to move on without him. Only 5 games (plus cup) to go so no big requirement to play him. He’s not that good that we’d be cutting our nose off to spite our face.

    Honestly can't see it guys.

    This should be a very straightforward win.

    Would expect us to be two goals ahead of them by the end. Especially at home.

    It SHOULD be a straightforward win, but that 100% depends on how we approach the match and our record in that department is not great.

    If we go out and take the game to them from the off with a high energy attacking approach, I can see a comfortable 2-0 or 3-0 win.

    However, if we go out with our “cautious/patient” approach I can easily see a 0-1 banana skin.

    I’m sure Goody would have been at Cappielow tonight. He won’t underestimate Caley. 

    Yeah that’s my concern. I’m worried he’ll totally overestimate them.

    What we need is the same approach as Saturday as opposed to the approach we saw in that run of league games against the bottom sides.

    Just a respectful, positive, we’re better than you and we’re going to show it.

    The reality is Scotland does not have enough teams with "half decent support" to fill the top league.

    Anyhow, it's ludicrous to categorise teams simply in what size their support is, and smacks of "We're better than you" simply because we are based in a larger town.

    Bad for business? Attendances, while they are important, are only a part of how a club brings in revenue.

    Scotland is a small pond and clubs can only attract a certain amount of support no matter what they achieve.

    The success of football is down to what happens on the park, not in some finance office somewhere. 

    The OF support talk about us in derisory terms as a Mickey Mouse team/support, nothing to do with what we bring in terms of support/money, just for being, in their eyes, a diddy team.

     

     

    I don’t disagree really with anything you say here, but I don’t think it changes the simple hard reality that if the away end of your stadium is empty then it’s not good for business. Don’t see how you can dispute that. 
    As for teams in Scotland that would bring a half decent support to our stadium.....

    Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs, Kilmarnock, Motherwell, Dundee Utd, Dundee, Dunfermline, Falkirk, Morton, Patrick Thistle. Throw is St. Johnstone and Raith Rovers and you’ve got quite a few teams right there. 

    When I was talking about the OF not making comments about us being tinpot, I meant specifically in relation to our support affecting their attendance figures.

    Clubs who suck money out if the game without actually bringing a support who add something to the pot

    surprised I had to point that put, to be honest

    ^^^^^^ Sounds like an Old Firm supporter, thinking WE are elite and these teams don't deserve their place down to what they do on the field.

    No surprise you came out with his, I was expecting it. 

    Our support, quite rightly, get annoyed, when we are talked about in similar derogatory terms, time you reset your thinking. :byebye

    The reality of course is that you are both right. 
    These teams have held the game back at the top level due to their more than pitiful supports. When it comes to support there  are probably 4 levels. Old Firm, Aberdeen & Edinburgh teams, a whole bunch of teams with roughly similar half decent supports, and a whole bunch of teams with next to no support. If teams from the final category (such as Accies, County, Livi, ICT) get into the top league, it would be silly to say it’s not bad for business.

    However FS is also right that these teams have earned their place in the league and deserve a wee bit of respect. I wouldn’t go along with the “we don’t like it when the OF say that about us” argument though, The OF would never say that about us, because they don’t lose any money due to the size of our support. Our allocations at their grounds are so derisory as to make it negligible from their perspective.

    Scotland wants to leave a political union to erm join an economic union ? Aye ok.

     

    Just because I’m a really kind helpful guy, I fixed your post for you so that some people don’t think your a bit stupid for thinking that the UK and the EU are the same kind of union.
