The point being that Mallan took a while to get going last season and would most likely have struggled in similar circumstances to last night, so perhaps we need to give the players in there now a wee bit of grace.

Spot on. Season just starting, last night's lineup had 5 new faces who weren't there last season. While they have been training together, it takes a number of competitive matches to really get your rhythm, and also for Jack to decide his best 11. It will have Eckersley and Magennis in it for sure, and probably Davis and whichever striker we sign as well.

Let's hope for a step forward in terms of approach and performance on Saturday.

It doesn't matter how many competitive matches they play... Stevie Mallan is still away!

And all of the above also applies to Livi and all other teams.

Doesn't mean all teams will be of the same comparative quality once their squads have gelled and are fit. We play a more expansive game than Livi, so there's more to getting it right than there is with their physical approach and men behind the ball way of playing. Sometimes you just need a player to be off the boil for it to suffer a bit. McGinn was as ineffective as I've seen him since coming back last night. I'm sure that won't happen again. I also expect McShane to get better the more he plays as well. Those two need to be creating more for us, getting the ball to the front four to make things happen - didn't get it forward quickly or often enough to them in good positions last night.

Seems to have a dark coloured beard, so don't think it's Harry. Maybe we'll be announcing a double signing today.

You'll need to wait until Whydowebother speculates that we might be signing someone.

That's your confirmation.:lol:

You're mocking me, aren't you :P

I leave flarybob & lovestreetzo to the wild speculation, while I concentrate on my 'guesses' ;)

I only mock the afflicted.

You seem to be of sound mind.:D

Stelois's fotos are like a question of sport. Is it Tony Jacklin?

I reckon it is Charlie Millar, though he'd have to have trimmed down a fair bit.

Maybe Robbie Winters?
