    Other commitments mean I don't get to many games
  1. Garner is not a no 9. We continue to play him as a no 9 and wonder why he doesn't perform. As such Warburton has left us with a team full of wingers, attacking midfielders and no 10's It's no wonder we struggle to score goals. We also have no defensive midfielders or centre backs who can defend for 90 minutes (in Senderos and Kiernan's case 90 seconds). It wasn't as much of an issue in the Championship due to the level of opposition but the lack of balance in our team would be a challenge for any Manager stuck with the same squad.
  2. Wilson played well and usually does when he doesn't have to worry about covering for Kiernan for 90 minutes. Hill may be getting on and struggling for pace but he's good in the air and has enough experience to take up good positions in order to compensate. A bit like Weir himself. Playing with an experienced Centre Half may also benefit Wilson in that it will take the responsibility of covering for his normal car crash defensive partner.
  3. Tired performance. Disappointing result but not totally unexpected given the physical and mental exertion on Sunday. Barrie McKay's goal though was worth the price of admission and the fact that a fresh Hibs team with something to play for scraped a victory against us despite everything else bodes well for the final.
  4. Bravo. Hats off to the editor! Even took time to put Scotland in quotes.
  5. Playing regularly at the higher level I would expect us to be challenging for the top spot. Would think that second top would not be outwith the realms of possibility and with a few players who knows? Celtic are not anything great at the moment and who knows how they would cope with the pressure of a realistic threat to their position.
  6. It's not their lack of ability that's the main problem. It's their absolute lack of fighting spirit. To a man spineless. Feel sorry for the young players having to play with them.
  7. It's astounding just how well players play when they are played in the correct position. Shiels problem under McCoist was that they kept throwing him up front as a striker. It's almost as if they had never seen him or several others they signed play before.
  8. Seen a few say he is worse than Foster who was excellent last night. To be fair to Clark, he was never given much of a chance under the previous management, much like other young players and some not so young players. It had to have a major impact on the lad's confidence, which I assume with him being a striker, would fuck, in a rather major way, with his mojo. McCall shows faith in Shiels, Murdoch, Zaliukus, McGregor, Clark amongst other youngsters being introduced and we suddenly start playing well. Whilst McCall's tactics and experience have had some impact you cannot help but wonder what on earth the previous muppets running the team were thinking.
  9. From a footballing perspective I'd take Davis and Naismith back in a heartbeat. Won't happen though for so many reasons, main one being we couldn't afford them.
  10. Amoruso, Lovenkrands, Novo, Gascoigne All indifferent against the lesser teams, but when the games really mattered they usually would turn it on.
  11. Simonsen cannot dive right. Once you realise this you will never unsee it. He is a horrendous Goalkeeper. May as well throw Jig in goal. Cannot be any worse than he is as a centre back.
  12. Should have started with Daly up front but hindsight is a marvellous thing.
  13. I thought, considering us playing one defender at the back, McGregor did ok. To be quite fair, Ricky 'and the move breaks down' Foster and Lee 'Dining out on past success' McCulloch were rank. Oh and don't get me started on Steve 'Zoolander' Simonsen, until now I'd never actually seen a keeper who can't dive to his right. We have so many problems but until we sort out our defence the rest is sticking plasters. Our bench highlighted our main problem quite well. 5 strikers and one defender.
  14. Probably still a better Striker than the ones we currently have. Stick a number 9 shirt on him
  15. If you feel that Yes is the way forward then vote Yes. If you feel that No is the way forward then vote No. There has been a deluge of bollocks and counter bollocks from both sides and a pretty well behaved debate has been reduced to the usual bollocks over the last couple of weeks, largely down to the political parties spouting even more fearmongering bollocks. It is with great pride that I have seen my nation in the whole rise above this and continue to debate where they can. So good luck to both sides and for those who wish to drag it down to an angry, shouty, fighty mess. Go fuck yourself
