Eric Arthur Blair

St. Mirren v Sunderland, friendly 21/7/18

Recommended Posts

If you were GLS would you loosen the purse strings after the 3 games so far this season? Best game was the one where hardly any of Stubbs' signings started. Heaton has been or biggest signing so far, paid more for him than any player in 25 years and the only game he has started was the 2-2 draw with The Spartans.
Would love to be a fly on the wall in the boardroom post match when AS is watching as GLS welcomes JR and JF back to GHR. And then GLS watching JR and AS discuss the match.
I will.continue to back our new manager for some time as there is no doubt it is early, very early, and I have not watched the team yet. But I am concerned that we do not yet have a team. Seems we have a group of individual players who are still uncomfortable with their new roles and formation and getting to know new teammates.
Lie everyone else, I'm still waiting for, and expecting some big/good signings to bolster a currently weak squad.

There is still time...

Not sure. Just passing on what I heard from one of the players!

 

Fair enough , maybe what I heard was ploppy. I certainly would want McKenzie back in just to shore things up !

As someone pointed out, 7 of the starting 11 were inherited by Stubbs.

Minus Lewis Morgan, the squad he was left with was nothing more than an average Championship side.

We also lost Davis and Smith while Magennis has been injured.

And for all the talk of Stubbs’ English non league signings, it was actually Jack Ross that signed one of them. And Paul McGinn isn’t great either!

I hope he did kick off and I hope Stubbs is big enough to apologise.

The momentum, team spirit and fan connection to the team is already all hanging by a thread.

He was sat in the stand for the Spartans game with the other players not in the squad so don’t think he was escorted from the premises

I already said that the story I heard must've been shite as Ulysses was speaking to a player about it !

f**k that. If we go into the Dundee game with this side we'll get murdered. We're f**king losing 6-0.

Can you honestly say we should 'sit and wait to see what happens'. 

There is an absolute lack of f**king basic ability there and its seriously worrying. We've regressed massively since May. That's not up for debate. It's a shambles. 

I'm working so missing the current games , get your concerns after all your at the games. Im hoping it's all trial and error just now and that the right players are brought in  I live and hope mate.

Apart from talking down the players who won the Championship last season have you got anything balanced to say about the new manager's own signings. * days ago you raved about how they were all better than what we might have signed from other premiership clubs...

Only positive is Stubbs is saying in his interview what the fans are saying knows he badly needs players in.

 

And didn’t hold back in saying that’s the last we will see of they trialists today he will move on to look elsewhere

Why on earth would you post something like if you thought there was even a chance of it being true?

WTF is wrong with you? :blink:

You should already know people, once they make their mind up, will spread as much poison as possible to back up their belief?

Hard to believe the team that played so well against Killie struggled against Spartans and then capitulated today.

Yes, it's a friendly, but it's a friendly for Sunderland too, and I assume they were playing around with personnel and tactics too.

You sound like Elvis & Me , Jess :lol:

Just watched Stubbs post-match interview. Now he’s “hoping” to get a couple in before the season starts in two weeks.

If he thinks two players will fix this shitfest he’s clearly f**king deluded.

We need a minimum of 4 players, McKenzie and Eckersley back in the side and f**king pray Kyle’s injury isn’t serious.

Thank f**k. Another few days on trial and we’d have offered them a 2 year deal!

None of is matters. You expect to be able to compete regardless.
Spartans would not have lost this game 6-0.


Don’t disagree.

Just pointing out that Stubbs’ starting position was not actually that great.

We were effectively a one man team last season. And that man is now away.

Maybe he got injured in training?

He is injury prone after all, hence why he only managed 14 games last season.

If folk think he is the answer to our problems then god help us!

 

He might however be a better shout than Heaton - £75k fee and a 3 year deal but judged not ready to play against Killie, didn't play well against non-league The Spartans and on the bench again today even though we shipped 6 goals.
