  1. Giving MoM to Power today as he was immense. Won every tackle then some great wee passing to start us off again. The back 3 were also excellent as was Jamie but Power wins it.
  2. Erharon is extremely poor when the opposition have the ball. He doesn't track runners, doesn't close down and doesn't mark anyone. He doesn't seem to know what he is doing when we don't have the ball and are defending. And he cannot tackle on his right side as he has to turn his body round to try and get his left foot in. He has a good left foot and some of his deficits can be improved by coaching. But I see little improvement in those areas over the last 12 months. Either he isn't getting the coaching he needs or isn't listening but his game awareness is poor.
  3. Biggest problem today was playing two defensive midfielders which simply doesn't work as they sit too deep leaving a huge gap in front and allowing little support to Brophy. I realise we were up against 10 men but taking Erhahon off meant more players in midfield where we could compete and support the strikers. Great result in the end though. Aberdeen should have been out of sight in the first half but we dominated the second. We finally played well against 10 men.
  4. Big shout out and thanks to the Bankhouse Buddies for giving me a lift through today when I missed my bus. Thanks guys.
  5. Unless the Away end is sold out no-one cares which seat you sit in. And the Away end won't be sold out this Saturday.
  6. McCarthy was the best man on the pitch at Livingston.
  7. Connor looks a player. Great debut considering he isn't match fit. Will certainly improve the team.
  8. Don't really have a problem with a safe standard area however those standing must not block the view of those sitting in adjacent areas. Not everyone is fit enough or wants to stand up for 2 hours. I support Slash's idea of using the area between the South and West Stands maybe at some point in the future but no point wasting money on it in W7 just now.
  9. Jamie is wasted in Jim's horrific setup for this season. Hope he changes it before it is too late.
  10. Don't know why everyone is complaining about midfielders. According to Jim we don't need any as every defender is under instruction to fire high balls as far up the pitch as possible and when it comes straight back fire a high ball as far up the pitch as possible and when ... Ach I am sure you can work it out.
  11. Tetrapaks are ok. Take in a litre of Tesco orange juice and share it around. (And bottles of any sort have been banned from football stadiums for decades. It is in the Club rules and the SPFL stadium rules. Surprised the Club didn't get pulled up for allowing bottles in for the restricted attendance games.)
  12. JDH and McGrath were both carrying bad injuries at the end of the season. But the whole team was shite - what was their excuse?
  13. Don't think I can watch any more - depends on how many Celtic will be content with.
  14. As I have been saying for weeks the tactics are killing us. This reliance on the wing backs to get quick high balls into the box for two wee strikers who rarely cleanly win a header simply ain't working. The back 3 punt the ball up the channels to the wing back (we only have Tanser in reality) who gets crosses in that are never won and Kiltie and McGrath are supposed to play high up to pick up the second ball. The leaves a huge void in the middle of the park for the opposition to control the game. And not only that, we are bypassing our best player in McGrath by not playing on the deck through the middle. The tactics are shite to watch and we do not have the personnel to execute them anyway. We are now watching hoofball. However to be fair we started playing through the middle more in the second half with McGrath dropping deeper and looked better for it. The only positive I can take out of today is the long awaited return of McCarthy. Let's hope Jim comes out his blinkered trance and keeps him in the team. Play that formation next week and it will be double figures against.
  15. In normal times (anyone remember them?) there would be no problem just turning up and buying a ticket for any stand you wanted. However these are not normal times. It looks like we should have a 5k capacity on 28th Aug but that is not confirmed as yet. I would ask your question in a week or two when hopefully things become clearer. There is a walking tour of Paisley that your dad may enjoy if he is fit enough. And the thread museum and Sma'shot cottages are maybe worth a quick visit as is a pint in the Bull Inn. You can check on-line about opening times. Enjoy your weekend whenever it happens. And keep checking about tickets.
