  1. We have a solid team who need to translate this belief into the league. We can win the league and get to a quarter final in Europa. Make us Dream Thank you Stevie G for making us believe again. We need to stick with this man no matter what
  2. Lille could sign Jonathan David and drop their interest. If he's ours he plays. Window open until October, could be a long wait
  3. Ok so Defoe is out and Morelos will travel and Stevie G will decide squad and team after training. So for those who think the Buff won't be risked how do you see us line up? Hagi false 9? Arfield a target and lay off to Kent, Aribo, Hagi? Greg Stewart or Barker? A youth like Middleton or Dapo up top? I think of the limited options (and I hope Morelos just starts), if Morelos doesn't play we will have Arfield at centre forward and the usual supporting 3 hoping he can do a job of holding the ball up.
  4. I've just read it. Barley coherent drivel. Sorry but there's plenty of actual evidence out there. This was just a rambling mess.
  5. If there were any sense of community or decency the prize money would be split more evenly to all clubs for this season as final positions were not determined. Give everyone in the top tier the same amount (we would lose a little here but the prize moneys poor anyway), step it down to a lesser amount but all the same in the championship and so on. More people keep their jobs, more clubs survive and there's a bit of unity. Instead we get an organisation trying to screw everyone for the benefit of the richest team. At the expense of all decency and honesty and potentially people's livelihoods. It's the employees on regular wages and the lower league players on part time money who will suffer here with the carve up. Zero standards. Utterly corrupt and contemptible from the SPFL.
  6. Just naming random employees now? Odd thing to think
  7. Sadly Davis and Defoe are showing their age. McGregor still doing fine but some succession planning should be in place cos McCrorie is still untested and young. We need a GK, 3 strikers and two starting CMs. Helander and Goldson I think are fine but a grizzled winner at the back wouldn't hurt.
  8. He's the best organiser and has a better pedigree than the others. He is slow but his positioning helps him combat that. We need a partner for Helander. Goldson is fine but not as the main man. I'd like to see us recruit another leader at the back. A grizzled, course and distance, no fucking about, scream in his own players face and head a medicine ball type centre half. Could do with that sort in midfield too.
  9. With Jack suspended who are you all having in midfield? I'd like to see Kamara Davis Arfield and Hagi with Morelos and Kamberi up front. Hagi in the ten role. Usual back 4 and keeper.
  10. You think he'd risk getting done with wasting police time, ruining his reputation and getting sacked for......what purpose? Have a word with yourself
  11. Agree with that setup for solidity and goal threat. Kent and Aribo need a seat on the bench, two forwards who don't score enough. Either play a centre forward and two inside forwards like Liverpool or play 2 up. This notion that we have 3 up but two are number 10s is cack. Hagi isn't a wide man he's a central attacking mid (traditional 10 not inside forward let's just call it a 10 even though it's not type 10).
  12. The signs were there that the bounce is coming back in our step. Hagis goal was huge. 3-0, Alfie double and Hagi special
  13. One effect might be an even greater last minute rush at the turnstiles as people struggle to make kickoff after work. Parking further away won't stop people bringing a car to the game. There's no way I could make it in time using trains etc from where I stay
  14. I assume the council will be providing alternative parking for say £100k?
  15. I always park away down near Gregg's toward Meiklewood Road and walk from there. If they ban that what exactly do they propose we do? I predict absolute chaos on match days
  16. He is excellent running at players and changing direction. He doesn't have the passing range and vision of a 10. He's a winger
  17. He's not shite but he needs to learn when to pass, when to shoot and when you gamble and drive it across the box. He chops back and forth and sometimes waits too long
  18. Our problem the last 2 games has been team shape. When there is zero threat on the right you can sit back and ignore that side and overload the middle and left. That's where we find ourselves with no space. Patterson should have played against St Mirren because he offers an attacking threat and is the most similar in style to Tav. Defoe needs someone to get the ball up the pitch because he isn't quick enough over 40 yards to run in on goal. He needs the ball coming to him in the box to use his movement and finishing instincts. We were predictable today and Wednesday. I actually revised my 3-4 nil prediction down to 1-2 against St mirren when I saw the team news. I knew we'd be lopsided and stodgy as fuck. Again today we should have shown some faith in our best youth.
  19. We are playing with two inside forwards like Liverpool do. Difference is they play 3 goalscoring strikers up there, we play a midfielder, a winger and a striker. We need 2 new strikers for next season and tbh could be doing with one of them now
  20. Wrong team picked. Invited a battle instead of a match. Sloppy as fuck. Flanagan crap. Jack should have been kept on and Kamara off. Aribo can't play up front he isn't fast enough. Lack a striker. None on the bench. Patterson should have started
  21. Just win Rangers. Having said that a nice routine 3, 4 or 5 would be lovely to build confidence and keep us fresh for Hearts away
  22. Patterson should play. These are matches we will dominate and his style is more aligned with Tav than the others. Put him in and see how he does against Stranraer and St Mirren
