Right....The dust is starting to settle on what was an embarrassing result for our club yesterday. Was it the worst result in our history? Quite possibly, it was certainly the worst one I can recall in 20 years supporting the team.
The past eighteen months or so has been great supporting this club but there is no doubt yesterday result puts a massive dampner on that. The players have quite rightly received lots of plaudits recently but there’s no doubt every single one of them deserves stick for yesterday’s performance and I’m afraid they are going to have to suck it up and come back better due to the experience.
Where do we go from here? It’s difficult to say. While we have dug meat from about 7 weeks or so so have the other challengers and there is no doubt we are still for the moment in the title race. This week is a massive week for us, Dundee United at home on Friday followed by ICT also at home. I think we’ll have a fair idea come then whether or not we have a chance of the title or will be clinging on for a playoff place come then.
It was quite evident yesterday that we need a few faces in to freshen things up. The signing of Bell last January was massive and really pushed us on to the next level, hopefully similar happens this month. We definitely tried to sign Erskine so there must be some money there. A signing this week would give the fans a bit of a lift ahead of Dundee United. Our result yesterday has probably knocked a couple of hundred of the attendance.
This may be a long shot and slightly unreasonable but as an apology for yesterday it would be nice to see the club subsidise some of the £ for the buses for our next away game.
