I would have accepted the loss of form if it coincided directly with the injuries. We would obviously be far better at the back with Dixon in there and far more dangerous going forward with Telfer and Connolly in the team just now.
But after winning 6 and drawing 2 of our first 8 games (and Connolly only started in 1 of those) there have been a good number of weeks when everyone else has been available. The two defeats against Airdrie are classic examples of that.
It also annoys me that so many mistakes have been persisted with. 1 up front. A central midfield pairing with no goal threat. Todd being stuck on left midfield. Playing our oldest, slowest players at fullback. Two thirds of the goals we concede coming from set pieces. Shelling high balls up to our strikers, even though none of them are any good in the air. Ill discipline (no surprise we are 2nd bottom of the fair play table). Fannying around with short corners and freekicks. Sadly virtually all of these traits started under M&M and none of them have improved under Holt.
We were even given a two month break after the appalling defeat at East Fife to sort our shit out. A mild improvement followed and it looked like we would see out promotion comfortably enough - but since the most recent defeat by Airdrie it has been utterly grim
