Would not go that far but one thing this result does do (over a 3-0 or 4-0 victory) is really highlight how much this malaise has set in - turgid football with not enough creativity - and raise bigger alarm bells than before. With the greatest of respect to Dumbarton, if we can't be putting away a team sitting in the middle of League One how are we supposed to do so against Premiership teams we are supposedly better than? A real threat of not qualifying for Europe at this rate, and *should* be a strong signal that what we've been doing for the past weeks and months is not working. The problem is if such a warning will be listened to. A great initiative by the club regarding the Merkland today and it's been repaid by the same shite.
