  1. They don’t announce “we have a shortlist and plan to interview x, y and z.” They may make an official approach and both clubs announce that, like Ross and Goodwin.
  2. No, a journalist has. would be a strange move for a club to announce a managerial shortlist!
  3. We don’t have a true left back and not seen Strain play there before. Would mean players coming in and I just don’t see us doing that. For all the system can be blamed, it’s individual errors that cost the equaliser. Too much fannying about, trying to waste time then not closing the cross down that led to the goal. Individuals need to take responsibility. Plus, Clark could attempt that another hundred times and not score.
  4. Didn’t think it’s was being announced until tomorrow (early hours our time)?
  5. Underrated player by many during his short stint. The old ‘didn’t run about enough’ brigade… Pretty sure he had a great assist record with us, or as great as we could ever hope for at that point.
  6. It’s interesting that there wasn’t anyone in the 30-40 age bracket. Not that I’d have put myself forward, but is it just a time thing, e.g. young families, career, etc?
  7. I’d be pretty disappointed to see him become involved. Chapsticks has summed it up - a lot of good for the most part, but ran out of ideas and soured the relationship. Argentine investors. Tommy Craig. Etc etc. Clearly, BAWA populated with those with a SG leaning. Even Demented Zebra has talked stuff and said it came from a former board member…not difficult to see where the rumours are coming from.
  8. Out of interest, plus reading the rabble on BAWA, when are the accounts due? If all is as bad as claimed, will we have our own version of the Rangers “big hoose must stay open” guy?
  9. Yeah, but we play a back 3 now. It’s a different argument if we are playing a 4, as he’s probably going to play in that. it doesn’t work in a 3 though, given what I said about being able to step forward with the ball, etc.
  10. ‘A bit of a bad taste’ is a bit over the top. He’s been a good servant, but Gallagher is an improvement on him and Joe can’t play the other two CB slots as well as Fraser or Dunne. Dunne gives the balance as he’s left sided and Fraser can step forward and support Strain, something that’s been effective this season. With the greatest of respect to Joe, he just doesn’t offer that. The question yesterday was Gogic or Joe. Clearly, with the investment in Gogic he’s going to be ahead of him.
  11. Agreed, no massive surprise on this. I guess that’s part of our ‘sell’ to players like McCarthy, McGrath, Baccus and Strain - we’ll give them a platform.
  12. We’ll have gone bust by the time VAR is introduced…
  13. Looks like we couldn’t afford to pay someone to tuck in everyone’s shirt. #crisis
  14. Put one of the youth team keepers on the bench. We don’t need to be carrying three senior keepers, just a younger keeper to step up into the spot Urminsky occupied last season.
  15. Last outfield player to be called up? I can’t think. Roy Aitken?
  16. Looking back at last season, we were 3-5-2 and clearly failing at it. Goodwin just couldn’t get it to work. For all Goodwin performed well for us, Robinson is a much better manager tactically and getting more out of players that Goodwin failed to. And, he’s got the right profile of player in - e.g Ryan Strain who can actually play the RWB role.
  17. Was it Dietrich that tried to overhead kick it on the halfway line, missed, letting the opposition in for a 1v1? Haddy. Heaton wasn’t helped by the pricetag, but didn’t show the attitude of Cooke to try and improve. Always found it strange that we signed a few players from the Vardy Academy that Stubbs was involved in prior to joining us…
  18. Yeah, broadly my feelings. Ross came across as a good man manager, but as sharp tactically. That was good enough for Scottish Championship and with players like Morgan and McGinn, but he needed to develop up a level. He’s consistently been found out tactically and in big games since then, hence where he’s ended up. If rumours of dressing room unrest at United are true, he’s failed at his one big strength.
  19. Yes, likely that Fraser will be the odd one out. Had a strong first season, but tailed off last season particularly around Christmas time. That coincided with Robinson arriving, so will be judged on that. Can see him at Dundee or maybe L2 down sarf.
  20. Not surprised - looks like he’s 3rd choice now.
  21. Good to hear the club is still active. Also means they are backing Robinson.
  22. Not overly concerned yet -saw enough last week and we’ve got a shite record in Aberdeen, not helped by an early sending off. Think we are still a couple players short. Definitely need another left winger/wingback, at the very least. Tait works hard, but we rely heavily on Tanser for assists. We also need a better keeper - can’t see it happening though.
