  1. Saw the game on telly and feared the worst before kick-off. Have to say that I thought Jones, Paul McGinn, Edwards & in particular Erhahon had stand-out games. Shouted at the screen more than a couple of times when we kept pumping high balls into our strikers from open play and set-pieces. Yes the wind was a big factor, but why play high balls to a striker who is usually dwarfed by the surrounding defence? We need a big, physical presence in the opposition box. Ideally Anton would be that man but he doesn't go up, even for corners, presumably down to not being able to track back quickly enough if there is a breakaway. OK, we're in the Premiership now where everybody is allegedly bigger, quicker, fitter than the Championship so why, in the absence of said big, physical presence do we not play with the ball at our feet like we managed to do quite successfully last year? Although it was another defeat, there were a lot of positives to take from the performance. We just need to do this on a regular basis and the points will come.
  2. Nice bit of business by the club. Been crying out for experience & a physical presence in central defence
  3. Thank God for that. We need Kenny Miller like a hole in the head right now
  4. What about Eck & Gary Mack being told they can find new clubs, errr no they're injured. Looks to me like they are in the same camp as Cammy Smith. Stubbs back-tracked on the rumour but I expect it was a case of no guarantee of first team football so feel free to leave if that's what you're looking for. I agree that no player is bigger than the club and arguably the manager, but why piss off the players that helped create the winning mentality and feel-good factor around the club that put the club back in the SPL without giving them some sort of reassurance? Strikes me that Stubbs was must have had a note from his Mum for the day they did man management during his coaching badges.
  5. It's a horrible thought to consider, but maybe 3 more defeats wouldn't be such a bad thing if it leads to a positive change. I don't get to see games in person but from what I see online and from what I see of Stubbs in interviews I can't see how he can inspire an under-performing team. Appears to blame everyone but himself and from the outside it looks like he is already losing the dressing room given what's going on with McGinn and Smith.
  6. Some superb individual goals to choose from, but THAT goal against Dunfermline was a brilliant end to end team goal that exemplified some of the football the boys have played this season.
  7. Don't get me wrong, i'm not expecting to fill the ground week in week out, and i'm not suggesting we do it next week or the club burdens itself with debt that we don't want or need, but the club we have today is a different animal to what we had when we were last in the top flight. I would imagine when the ground was designed the capacity considered some sort of growth in attendances in the future, just wondered where the tipping point for taking such a step would be.
  8. Without trying to jump the gun on remaining in the SPL this time next year, and with the increase in home crowds peaking with a sell-outs of the remaining home games, is it time to start thinking about filling in the corners at Greenfield Road? This is very much a speculate to accumulate issue, but if we can maintain the interest and buzz that is circulating the club from home fans and with the increased numbers that will visit from the ugly sisters, Hibs, Hearts etc. it will be interesting to see how close we get to filling the ground on a more regular basis to justify expanding the stadium one corner at a time, which will count towards returning on the investment.
  9. Absolutely agree as they have backed Jack to the hilt, but would that have happened if they had appointed another dud as a manager? I don't think so.
  10. We have 300K from the Morgan deal plus whatever prize money there is for (hopefully) winning the league. Surely the BOD can see clear to set some of that aside to secure the services of the manager that has breathed life back into the club, provided attractive football that has seen increased numbers through the turnstiles and seen us on telly on a fairly regular basis (generating further extra income)
  11. No, but we can do it in the short-term to maintain stability and get us over the line this season and hopefully into next season in the Premier League. Short term pain for longer term gain
  12. as someone posted earlier, there may have been a clause in the new deal allowing Jack to speak to other clubs if certain conditions applied
  13. How could it have been avoided? The club signed Jack up to a new contract recently and we have no control over when other clubs sack their managers. We could have tried to avoid it by Tony having a word with Jack to bollock him for reviving the club and saving us from relegation last season, and telling him to stop being so successful this season.
