First chance of watching 'Handsome Stephen Dobbie Plus 10' and my word what an omnishambles. East Kilbride were organised and we are somehow even slower in possession than before so it really couldn't have been easier for them. I don't get why we started two defensive centre mids when we had the ball all night or why we needed 4 defenders but that's just me. It was just so once paced, predictable and exactly the same as when Naysmith started. Though to be fair Rooney aside, the newer players largely looked okay. I mean failing to beat a non league side over 90 minutes is probably one of the worst results in our history regardless of how shit this format is so I think an overreaction is justifiable.
Martin - Unsurprisingly not very busy but made a good save early in the second half and looks competent. Didn't really get close to the penalties.
Rooney - Interesting hybrid player of being too shit in the air to be a centre half and not enough at the whole football thing to be a full back. Doesn't ever look up, runs into channels and can't hit a first time cross.
Brownlie - He's somehow now playing like he forgets that he is Darren Brownlie is attempting fancy passes and turns. Which is probably going to make him even more of a bombscare than before. Thought that might be just because it's East Kilbride but I do worry.
Fordyce - Steady probably too slow on the ball but with the Lidl reduced to clear section Pique next to him, I can cope with that.
Marshall - Had all the time out wide early on but he loves a run into a cul de sac or a blocked cross.
Stirling - Actually looks like he's seen a football before. So that's promising.
Rankin - Spent more time on the ground than on the ball, his drop off in performance since January is ridiculous.
Jacobs - Did Kyle Jacobs things, kept getting on the end of crosses which is never a good thing with Kyle Jacobs. Lord knows why he took a penalty.
Murray - Took the pressure of the famous number 17 worn by the mercurial Jake Pickard and played in the spirit of the big man #respect.
Lyle - should have scored, did his usual but difficult when a side sit in with no runners.
Dobbie - Tried to do everything, don't begrudge him in the slightest for it, I wouldn't pass to those diddies.
Dykes - The Bogan Batistuta is somehow getting worse with each week, how is that even possible, especially bad was getting called offside multiple times against a deep lying team who were all knackered.
Tapping - Looked better than Rankin, woeful penalty.
