  1. If Hagi is a realistic option to buy. Then the shape has to change to have him more central.
  2. With our current defensive form. For me we have to perhaps employ some anti football techniques to get through this. They are a very fluid team who move the ball quickly from defence to attack. At the moment the tie is won and we should set up to counter as they play a very high line. Let's win the ball on our half and play into the channels quickly to use the pace and strength of Kamberi and passing ability of Hagi.
  3. Europe and up to the old firm victory is the big plus for this season. Fact that our points tally after the break compared to last season is actually 3 points worse is a major disappointment as you would of hoped lessons would of been learned. We now only have the Scottish cup as a viable trophy option. If the form and lack of any real change of personnel and formations stay on the same trajectory with another trophy less season. I honestly think he will be gone.
  4. Don't think the location for a winter break should make any difference to form. We simply don't have the players yet who are capable of maintaining a title challenge over 38 games. If you look at the staring 11 for most games it's more or less the same 11 as last season with the exception of Hagi. All this summer's signings are bit part players or can't even get in a match day squad, only Aribo is showing glimpses of quality. Spent 7 million on Kent who less than two seasons ago was an U23 for Liverpool looking to get a loan deal somewhere anywhere. Comes up here plays half decent suddenly Liverpool want 7 million and we pay it, ok if you have the money but we don't. We have an aging midfield but allow Greg Doherty to go away on loan again without giving him any game time to see if maybe he can do a job. Yet he takes half a season to work out that Ojo just might not be good enough up here. And Jordan Jones what happened to him.
  5. If the results and performance continue then it has to be inevitable that something will happen. He signs the players picks the team and formations. Nobody is bigger than the club and success at this club is a default setting if you can't bring success then you won't be here. My worry is that he knows our defence is piss poor but keeps playing a formation that leaves them exposed to one on one situations yet he won't try anything different. Under Walter Smith we had some real back to the wall performances but won a lot of games by the odd goal. Winning ugly is still winning, today the game was won but we were still charging forward in big number's and pushing our defence right up towards the halfway line.
  6. Centre halfs are not helped by our formation and over reliance on our full backs being involved in the attacking play. In all the games we have lost goals the opposing team have played with two attackers either with three or four at the back. That effectively means our centre halfs are man for man. We also play a high line but neither of two seems to drop to provide cover for a long ball. First goal today Goldson jumps under the high ball and Katic gets caught out in 50/50 ball. Fact is both of them were 40/50 yards from goal almost level with each other. Second goal is even worse as we are winning and their only option is to attack but a punt through the middle catches both of them level with each other and on the turn running back towards goal. No doubt both full backs would of been in attacking positions. It's school boy stuff.
  7. There's certainly something not right with him at the moment. Doesn't look as fit as he was before the break and his confidence is shot to fuck. I think him along with Kent would be better of on the bench and come into games fresh for the last 20 minutes to see if they can get something going against a back four that's begining to tire.
  8. Boyds comments are correct. He is not learning or evolving as a player. Still making the same mistakes diving in for balls he can't win, giving away silly fouls trying to play from the back when he can't pass. No better than any previous centre halfs in fact he reminds me of David Bates when he first broke into the team.
  9. The fact that down south they talk about Gerrard and his eventual progress to being manager at Liverpool is laughable. I work with a few scousers and they genuinely believe this will happen.
  10. Biggest disappointment is that St Johnstone didn't really have to work to hard to get the ball in dangerous areas in our half. It was so easy for them just to knock it long knowing that Laurel and Hardy at the back would cough up a chance for them.
  11. If the results and performance continue then it has to be inevitable that something will happen. He signs the players picks the team and formations. Nobody is bigger than the club and success at this club is a default setting if you can't bring success then you won't be here.
  12. Shocking display from our management team today. Wrong team started and poor performers left on the pitch to long. Get yourself in a winning position but still push up like you are chasing the game.
  13. Last minute Kent on the ball and you just know fuck all is going to happen. This year's collapse is worse than last years.
  14. I have to ask would that hand ball by Kamberi of been a penalty if it was a defender. Under the new rules I don't think it would.
