I’d have no worries going to Tynecastle.

A sense of perspective really is required in the criticism of our manager.

All this talk of away form hoodoos would never have arisen had we seen out two commanding displays at Fir Park and Pittodrie. We are undoubtedly a far better team than Aberdeen and yesterday’s result doesn’t change that. I remember us going to the piggery, getting hammered for eighty odd minutes and leaving with three points courtesy of McCoist. We loved it then, but it was a sickener yesterday because we were on the receiving end.

We are unbeaten in Europe, two points behind the scum in the league and we are gutted at losing a semi final we dominated. Don’t tell me that’s not huge progress.

My main concerns are around our inability to get past a ten man defence, our inability to make anything of free kicks/corners while conceding from one again, and our complete dependence on two boys from Liverpool who run out of steam and ideas after an hour.

As for yesterday, Morelos plays, we win. It’s that simple.

Aberdeen are fucking woeful  - that’s twice we’ve played them and not won. Conceded from a set Piece and a punt in box.

Bar 30 mins at Motherwell they ran over top of us - 2 goals conceded from set pieces.

European games suit the players we have and it’s easy for the players to get up for they games.

Gerrard can’t get them motivated for away games, through in his fucking about with team selection and it’s a massive worry.

Anyone calling for his head or even thinking about it is a complete spastic.

The Treble's off....get Stevie G tae fuck! Reckon if i left it at that i'd get a fair few likes.... It is astonishing that some on here are talking about sacking the manager. New manage

I'll say what I said early on In the season though. We need to give SG at least 3 windows. We can't just chop and change managers. It was imo always going to take three transfer windows to fix th

Im not buying in to this whole "if i have to buy better quality players for when he get to this stage then thats what i will do." Thats complete rubbish. Do Aberdeen have better quality players than us? No they dont. Its about desire and mentality. Its having the balls and courage to stand up and say "im going to be the man that wins us this game today." We currently have players who lack that mental strength.

Why do folk still think Change is easy - SG is doing better than I though but anyone who doesn’t realise that with all the changes we need some stability and 2-3 more transfer windows to really be back.

this thread like other threads is just the same over reactive nonsense we don’t need but keep repeating. 

You get a lot of stick on here and sometimes you've been too defensive in my opinion, however this is correct.

I'm hoping he will get a few more players in the Jan window and now knows who to get rid off as can't handle our jersey.

We need to give him time as we are doing fine .

We're  still in Europe and it's the first season for a lot of this team  and I'm hoping we can only get stronger .

He could start by playing our Croatian International left back and our big money summer signing..

I'll be the one to bite here...

But how can you say anyone even thinking about it is a 'spastic'? He deserves a bit more time but if its not starting to cross your mind that he might not be the right guy then you're wearing blinkers.

When do we start thinking about it then in your eyes? Is it when we're knocked out the Scottish cup? Is it when we're mathematically out the league picture again? Is it when Gerrard has spent another 7/8 million on players who apparently, in his words, don't have the quality to break down an Aberdeen side who are the worst they've been in years?

He should never have got the job in the first place & only did because of who he was as a player and the commercial aspects he brought to the club but the simple fact is, he's a complete rookie manager who tactically, is out his depth. Everybody wants him to do well but there's been massive red flags for months now domestically (Aberdeen, Livingston, Motherwell, Taigs, even Hamilton for 80 minutes). He keeps making the same mistakes again and again, he doesn't appear to be learning or wiling to change anything, the same 2 things that Warburton/Pedro got fucking hounded for.

In Europe he's done brilliant to get as far as he's got but he's never going to get judged on what happens in Europe, that's a free shot and the players seem to know that too, they go out and burst their arse in Europe because its a stage to put themselves on the map and get moves elsewhere. Domestically, the results have to start improving or people are well within their right to call for his head.

I certainly think a sports psychologist should be considered, we have far too many players who seem to crumble in big games as well as playing on plastic pitches.

The final 3rd of the field is where the problem is, its like a mental block, even if we had Morelos I'm no sure we'd have scored, was the same at ibrox on Thursday, there's been a few game's like that this season, I'm still behind the manager but he should have changed it up with 20mins to go, he had more than enough time to be pro active.

Wow some people are just mental! 

We lose a semi final and the 1st thing some want to do is put our new rookie manager on the clock or get rid straight away 

we are not even half way thru his first season as a first team manager and he has tried to build a whole new team which is a massive over haul. This was always going to take time. We have made some good full time signings and the rest has been made up with loans. Over the next 2 windows I’m sure we will try to get full time signings for the positions that Gerrard feels we are still lacking in. There is no point in us becoming a club that changes manager every year we need to be patient and look at the bigger picture. Last season we were being beaten by everybody and their dog at ibrox 

we have now turned that round and I’m sure we will get more consistency away from home in time 

I agree . Stability is definitely what we need now . And without a shadow of a doubt . SG is the man to bring us success.

I fully expect the beggar riddled media to start planting the seeds of doubt, in the weak of minds amongst bears anytime soon .They know it would be a major GIFUY if they helped hunt SG out of our club .

I truly despair for the guys that have to slag SG after that last night . Sure he has his failings and he is no doubt making mistakes .

Will he learn . Time will tell but he is not even close to bringing us the humiliation Pedro brought us . Or the garbage MW brought to the side.And don't even mention the years with McCoist . We were a wreck

We have now got our pride back . Sore one last night but it was a game that should have been won with some better players

Every weekend . I look forward to watching our club play . That has not been the case for me these last 7 years

Be careful what you wish for

With Glenn Hoddle being in the news right now I've seen a few times about his managerial spell at Chelsea where he couldn't understand why his players couldn't do the things he used to be able to do. I wonder if there's elements of this with Gerrard? 

It could be that m8. Even I look at them & wonder why they can't do what I can STILL do, and that is cross a ball, take a decent corner or free-kick & have a shot at goal when it's on.

This. Some of the overreacting on here has been shocking. He's had one window. Taken us to the top of a group stage in Europe, that we never thought we'd get to. 

Yes our away form needs to improve. Yes we need to be more consistent and yes we need a bit more attacking quality to unlock defences.

However we've dominated that game and the improvement on last season is huge. We've got to give Gerrard backing. He's a young boss who will make mistakes, but he will get better and his team will get better.

Read someone say it was our worst semi final defeat ever- fuck me did they not see Dundee United tearing us apart a few years ago? The game against them under Kenny clipboard McDowell. 

We will get better and this team are the best we've had since Walter Smith's Rangers. I've no doubt about that. Keep the faith

"Taken us to the top of a group stage in Europe"  Europa League, and after 3 games.

"Yes our away form needs to improve. Yes we need to be more consistent and yes we need a bit more attacking quality to unlock defences." Our away form needs to improve. We need to be more consistent and we need a lot more attacking quality to unlock defences.

"we've dominated that game" They let us have the ball. That was their plan.

"The game against them under Kenny clipboard McDowell" We're better than we were under McDowall, hip hip hooray.
