    Docherty could play centre half and play well,  we never know. The guys had 3 games and been slaughtered, it’s actually a bit embarrassing .

    What's the threshold of games for folk being allowed to point out that a player is clearly miles out of his depth in the role he was signed to fulfil?

    Did he even play against EK actually? A few more than he’s had especially when one of those was Killie.

    The problem is most of the squad is made up of bottom league 2/lowland league jobbers 

    Aiden Cassidy - if he was any good we'd be playing him

    Billy Mortimer - not good enough for league 1

     Scott Rumsby - not good enough for league 1

    Jonathon Page - I'll reserve judgment 

    Conrad Balatoni - Might be passable at lower end league 1 but he needs to be fitter, He looked gubbed towards the end of the last few games on the big broadwood pitch

    Mark Docherty - can leave anytime what a waste of a wage

    Kevin Nicoll - might be good to have around the dressing room but not good enough

    Aaron Splaine - Very wasteful in possession maybe can be coached to be atleast useful

    Robert Jones - Not good enough non existent hold up play

    Owen Andrew - needs alot of work loan out for the season 

    Kieran McGrath - ok squad player but certainly not a game changer 

    Tade - Looked so unfit the last time i seen him hopefully is useful off the bench

    Kennedy - Very promising hopefully will develop into a good player

    Morgaro Gomis - Done some good things and some bad things still good enough for league 1

    Adam Livingstone - Should be our first choice LB good enough for league one

    Sub GK - Didn't look great but hopefully he isn't used much

    Cuddihy - Good energy certainly can play a part in the team

    DGW - Legend enough said

    Mitchell - As above we are so lucky he saved us a few times already

    Love - I am already on the caravan of love what a guy! 

    Cunningham - Frustrating needs work

    Kai McCormack - who knows

    If this was posted in maybe October, November I think folk could be inclined to agree, but it’s embarrassing at this stage.

     

    Ally Love for me is a strange one, I think he is a decent player and gives his all for us, so for me will always get support. Is he as good as some make out? I’d have to say no. Almost in a John Sweeney/Kevin nicol bracket of being overhyped. 


  3. We’ve had 3 competitive games and telling folk they can leave whenever a waste of a wage. 
     

    We have a better squad than last season IMO, I don’t know what others expectations are but I think the reality is if we can push further into mid table that would be a good enough season. 
     

    There are too many teams with bigger budgets and better squads than us to have a real go.

    O’too played in some of celtic’s friendlies  so no chance of getting him, mate of mine is Celtic daft and told me a while ago he Will be involved around the 1st team this season.

    Given celtics manager only started a few weeks back it’s interesting that your pal knew Otoo would be first team a while ago. He captained the B team yesterday at Bonnyrigg and I can’t see how he would go above the B side this year. 
     

    Wasn’t there yesterday but feared the worst after 20 minutes. Livingstone should be our first choice left back, that was obvious even from Tuesdays game. 


  5. Think we can all agree we didn’t play that well last night, but to be saying it’ll be a long season etc already is pressing the panic button at this stage. 
     

    I thought Balatoni and Rumsby were pretty decent together, Mortimer was alright but Docherty needed off after an hour max, don’t know how many times Stranraer got in behind. 
     

    Gomis broke the play up well, but probably should’ve been sent off. Splaine looks a decent player too. Thought Cunningham looked sharp, we could do with a good season out of him. 
     

    Stranraer played some decent stuff and have a few good players, 14 and 17(I think) especially. 
     

    We’ll obviously need to be better, but it’s still early days.

    It's not exactly clear cut given the precedent in this competition. I'd say a 3-0 is the fairest outcome in isolation, but if Hearts have been punished differently for a similar but not identical offence in the same competition then there is clearly at least some degree of ambiguity.

    The SPFL will give whatever punishment suits at the time, like making sure Hearts still got through the group. No offence, but they won’t bother anywhere near as much if Killie went out. 


  7. I think comparing what we have this season to last, we “should” be harder to beat. 

    Gomis should harden up the centre of the park where we were particularly weak, Balatoni brings good experience at the back although a few question marks over the full back areas still linger. 
     

    Scoring last year wasn’t an issue and shouldn’t be this. I thought Jones was poor for Dumbarton but as Danny Lennon said, we were one dimensional in attack so I can see the logic in bringing him in for something different. 
     

    Going to be a tough league again, but we might just do alright. If we can push further into mid table towards East Fife and Montrose I think is a realistic target. 


  8. I watched the first hour then about the last 5 or so, again I’m not seeing all the negativity either. 
     

    Raith had good chances first half but we had 2 or 3 ourselves, but thought we played well enough. From what I saw second half it was much the same and we scored a good goal.

    As above Gomis looks a great signing if we get that out him every week, Mitchell made some cracking saves and thought Cunningham looked sharp, big season for him I think if he has ambitions to get back higher up the leagues. 
     

    A good workout against a good Raith team. Couldn’t believe the size of Tade though…

    Looks like he had a promising start to his career and then some bad luck with a leg break which has stalled his progress. Hopefully he can kick on again with us and be a success. He must have some ability if he’s been at Killie, QotS and Dunfermline.

    Could you stop mentioning the higher up teams and stick to the lower league jobber teams. That’s the narrative on here.

    To win over enough of the lower league teams they're also suggesting no relegation from the SPFL for a couple of seasons by the looks of it.

     

    The lowland league didn’t do the pyramid any justice letting them in but this would completely undermine the whole point of it.

    Im sure you have watched us and the rest of the league long enough to gauge what is minimal requirement to do anything close to being successful SL much as I admire your optinism, but do you in all honesty, believe that the recent raft of signings will be either good enough or consistant enough as a group to ensure we are not in a religation fight all season?

    I think we’ll be nearer the bottom due to the signings the teams above have made but I think we have signed better than last summer. A bunch of ringers from Rangers colts and a few other loans who contributed little overall. 


  12. I was absolutely certain Mark Lamont had signed for Stranraer? 
     

    Anyway, he’ll very much be a squad player for you. As much as your website says he was integral in the 2 covid campaigns, he wasn’t in the season just played. 
     

    You’ll see a flash of brilliance every 4 or 5 games but hasn’t done it regularly for us. Surprised he’s moved to you in all honesty.

    I’m assuming we’ll start to see the fruits of the labour from Diamond and the other members of the scouting division soon because so far all of these signings have Lennon’s fingerprints on them.

    A few more Otoos and Jamiesons wouldn’t go amiss.

    On what basis are we likely to see the fruits of their Labour?
