  1. QP v EC

    Definite lack of experience in the team and some of the young guys who started off well are now struggling and way too much expected of them...Mgr allowed some experience walk out the door which is criminal when reinforcements at this time of year is virtually impossible with the exception of the odd youngster on loan. His tactics are one dimensional and afraid he is now being found out which is very worrying...we are now shipping goals and unable to convert. Even making allowances for the injuries some of his team choices and tactics have been extraordinary and don't seem to have recognised that during this difficult period we need to attempt to close the back door and retain possession for longer periods.Elementary and basic stuff when resources are stretched and may have resulted in picking up the odd point here and there.
  2. Was it only me or did anyone else question our bench yesterday?...all strikers apart from Gibby...are we now short in midfield?...no Kindlan(maybe injured again?)...feel like a record that's got stuck but could do with some real experience in the middle of the park as don't think young Calvin is anywhere near ready for a run in the team!
  3. QP v Elgin

    The silence is deafening!! He really needs to make some changes as too many players gone off the boil...surely he can see this but unsure if hes capable of playing a different style..time will tell.
  4. QP v Elgin

    How did we end up with Gow?,,at fault for 2 of the goals and not whats needed in this league!
  5. Only one team in the league with a worse record over the last 5 games than us??..yes,its Albion....ominous signs with performances dropping off since the promising signs earlier in the season! Whats happened to the difficult to beat mentality?
  6. Yip,all down to opinions...hes never done it for me-too wee and no presence and just reminds me of a wee lost terrier chasing an elusive bone! We have been needing a bigger more athletic mid-fielder to dominate this area for quite some time and someone who can bring out the best in their teammates through their drive and leadership.Thats the DNA that I would be asking my scouts to focus on when identifying potential new recruits...not saying its easy to find this type of player but its such an important position within the team and for me Jambo despite his credentials falls well short.
  7. That's 2 decent midfielders left in recent weeks..Fotheringham & Lachlan!....imo don't think either was given a chance by new manager which is bizarre as midfield has been average at best. Lachlan has gone back to Lowland league outfit Cumbernauld where he was POY last year and no doubt Gregor has either got a team lined up or will find one very quickly...really didn't expect these two to be casualties and from what ive heard our Mgr is a very poor communicator with those that are on the periphery of the team. Cant imagine there will be too many players available to replace these two from the Jan sales and also what happens if we lose a couple more to higher league clubs?
  8. Anybody else feel the same that this League 2 is rank rotten and that Edinburgh City and Peterheid are the best of a very average bunch...shame we had to change Managers as think Gus"s experience and his knowledge of the squad he assembled would have taken us further up the league. Nothing against Roberts but just think Gus could get more out of a squad...only time will tell but IMO we have gone off the boil both defensively which could in part be due to enforced changes and in mid-field where I still think we are searching for a better blend.For me McKernon is very average and flatters as he runs around chasing shadows and likes nothing better than punting upfield like they do in the Juniors and Roberts has potential but positionally is weak and tends to take too many touches..so both for me are technically deficient in an area where we have previously excelled.Maybe an additional player in CM at the expense of a wide man would help as being played through too easily. We need to start winning again soon or we will find ourselves spiralling further down towards the relegation pit!
  9. Edinburgh City v Peterhead

    Seen both teams this season and not overly impressed by either but rest of league is pretty awful so unless either implode they will never have a better opportunity of promotion.
  10. Lol..only adding to what an earlier poster had said about Lachlan leaving...if both these rumours are true then IMO something isn't quite right as both have featured this season and both done well. Smart and Lachlan can play various positions and that has to be an asset for any squad or maybe they are fed up with either lack of opportunity or being played out of their natural roles.Hope these rumours are just that as both have shown that they can easily play at this level.
  11. Heard Smart Osadolar has also left the club?...if true that him and Gavin have left that doesn't sound good as only in Dec and players already disenchanted.
  12. Cowden v QP

    Think Roberts has made it quite clear by his squad selections since taking over who he rates and who he doesn't...believe majority of squad is fit with exception of a couple of players so I would expect to see some players move on over the coming weeks and potentially a couple of new faces. Essentially this is Gus"s squad and Roberts will have his own thoughts albeit if he hasn't given some players an opportunity to play how can he make that judgement...Gus had a pretty good eye for a player so we could end up losing some decent guys.
  13. Cowden v QP

    Lets see how many stay around after Xmas as a pool of 26 plus is far too many and now trialists appearing means Mgr cant fancy a number of players who aren't even getting stripped...why has Smart vanished or is he injured?..Lachlan seems well out of favour and surely he can freshen up middle of park and provide experience?...Ali Miller is he not a LB?..Brendan Sharpe?..Daniel Nimmo an imposing CB may be a better option to Magee?..and whatever happened to the other Kindlan as don't think he has featured at all. A few of these could do with some game time especially when some players are struggling for form?!
  14. QP v Peterheid

    Sorry but think you will find that a reckless tackle is an offence that merits a caution even if no contact!..IMO he got that one right but overall he had a poor game and Peterhead got away with countless pushes and obstructions which he should have clamped down on early in the game.
  15. QP v Peterheid

    Dom had just been booked couple of minutes before and then lunged into a needless challenge inside the oppositions half...regardless whether there was contact or not it was completely avoidable and hopefully he learns quickly from that mistake!
