  1. Without Tierney, McTominay absolutely has to be in the back three IMO. Gordon McTominay Hanley Cooper O’Donnell. Robertson McGregor Gilmour McGinn Armstrong Adams
  2. Alright in terms of what? He maybe wasn’t his usual level of unbelievably shite, but that’s about it...
  3. I thought Airdrie were meant to be decent? Starting Afolabi in a play off final I would take Easton off these roasters, just like we took McInroy - thanks.
  4. Liam Craig to take up a coaching role at St Johnstone, so there is one of the assistant manager options crossed off!
  5. McHugh would basically be the definition of an underwhelming signing.
  6. He was good generally in that Dunfermline game tbf, never to be seen again though.
  7. Apart from it not just being a random assumption of course...
  8. That happened for me when he signed Joe Chalmers... I may have been on the wrong side of the John Hughes debate!
  9. Aye, Houston was largely horrific with a decent performance every six games or so. His sheer panic every time he received the ball the worst thing about him! Reading is absolutely miles in front of him - we saw how effective he can be going forward when he was actually allowed past the half way line against Partick.
  10. McAllister at least had the odd thing going for him, good aggression, leap and an unbelievable ability to throw himself head first into any kind of aerial challenge. He seemed to lose all confidence and was Houston like in his performances though - poor on the ball and one on one defensively. I actually thought he looked very promising on his debut against Dundee United! As you say though, he is still young and has shown he is a decent league one player so there may be something there!
  11. By all accounts Donaldson has been very good for Dunfermline... I obviously haven’t seen much of him, other than him struggling against Tomi.
  12. This - I really don’t see any kind of issue. Absolutely nothing wrong with trying to promote a bit of positivity. We can’t complain about there being no engagement, and then complain about too much fan engagement.
  13. Bullen persisting with that right hand side was just absolutely wild - if he didn’t change it we would have been in the playoffs IMO. Shite defensively and shite offensively. Houston has around one good game in five - he plays with no aggression, is woeful on the ball and offers nothing but then at times he does have that aggression etc. He was excellent against Dunfermline away, Raith away and Kilmarnock away. ETA, no fucking way on Griffiths. Two goals in thirteen for Falkirk.
  14. I don’t disagree at all (well I think 3/4 does) was just pointing out that 99% of us on here wanted a Baird and Muirhead partnership once we got actual central midfielders in in January.
  15. Not that it was a high bar, but Baird was our best centre half until January by a decent distance IMO. Fjortoft has been incredibly shit, and is possibly the most rash CB I’ve ever seen. Still - with McGinty signed and assuming Muirhead does I wouldn’t be keeping Baird. All three are very limited on the ball.
  16. Playing Mackie as a second RB he was so deep one of my other memories. Saying all that - I’m sure he would still be a decent manager at this level.
  17. Of course there isn’t with the correct team - Levein likes to pretend he was some kind of visionary, when in reality it was absolutely fucking mental given the set up of that Scotland team. It can work for a possession based side, not so much one who needs an outball as we watched the ball sail up the middle of the park to absolutely no one all game.
  18. Signs a rapist, fucks off to a shambles of a side in the league below and wants to take Raith’s better players with him - I would be fuming at McGlynn!
  19. Losing the plot comments were about people being annoyed at us potentially offering three year deals - its bizarre. I think your probably right that our best players won’t accept that, but if younger players like Maxwell, McInroy and Reading even accepted two year deals that would be fantastic. Chances are it would be the academy guys who would be more likely to accept these deals. People are obviously going to disagree slightly on the rest, but the most we need is five if we hold on to who we want to. Two centre backs, right back, wide midfielder, and a striker. Four/five starters... I initially said six (another CM) when I wrote that but then remembered Mathie discussing young players being used where appropriate within the squad - Hewitt and Smith will most likely be our central midfield cover and I’m fine with that.
  20. Reading, McInroy, Dempsey, Murdoch and Adeloye already are that decent core - Maxwell and McAdams have the potential to be added to that. O’Connor and Ashford have a bit more to prove next year if they stay. Regardless, I doubt we will be chucking three year deals out all over the place, I have trust in the guys running the club - they know what they are doing. I would far rather we were offering decent deals and trying to build something than continuing with the cycle of one year deals and changing things up every single year.
  21. Or we get a core of decent players with sell on value and actually attempt to move forward as a club.... I’ve been raging at numerous points this season, but genuinely amazed people are losing the plot as we are trying to tie down our better players on decent deals. It’s a good thing, as is a gradual evolution of a squad.
  22. Gives them some security and the deals could potentially have clauses written it in terms of release fees...
  23. So good at Raith Rovers he was in a team relegated by Brechin and not a stand out in a honking Hamilton team. Not a stand out? He scored nine and assisted four in 29 appearances! Ridiculous numbers for someone in the midfield of a honking team.
