  1. The manager is coming across as pretty clueless. Watching months of abject midfield performances from McGhee whilst natural midfielders are sitting on the bench or in the stand isn’t acceptable anymore. 

    His best run of games was when he confessed we stumbled upon a formation at halftime against Partick. Bizarrely changed the winning formation and now we’ve been shite for the last half a dozen games.

    Williamson and Maguire would be my choice as I don't like McGhee as a midfielder. But as you say Bowyer clearly sees McGhee as part of his best eleven, that's not going to change.

    We'll have plenty games harder than Queens; they aren't near the best team in the league. They were absolutely woeful at Dens because they couldn't cope with being pressed. Their passing went to shit and they resorted to lobbing it. Teams have been giving them far too much respect. Partick are a better team and Morton style of play will cause us more problems on Friday.

    I remember at half time against Queens thinking Maguire was abysmal - us winning 3 0 didn't alter that much although he done a bit more in the second half.

    We needed better than Grayson but in his good performances I remember (ArbroathH, AcciesA, AyrH and Partick away) he was at a level above what Maguire is producing. The only thing Maguire is doing better is some big tackles which we know in Scotland is all people can see at times.

    Up against Morton away can see us dropping points with a midfield of McGhee and Maguire and us playing a terrible brand of football akin to the Morten. Why not go there and show some attacking intent to outplay the diddies with Robinson, Jakubiak, Cameron, McMullen and Williamson all starting with an anchor infront of the defence.

    Going to Morten with a mindset to make it a shitfest isn't imposing our qualities on them.

    Thank you.

    Grayson was abysmal away to Partick. Remember people around me losing the plot that day with Bowyer about his performance. Max Anderson came on and changed that game. Grayson was hiding as per usual. 

    The thing about Maguire and McGhee in midfield is that they’re protecting the back 4 and we now have the best defensive record in the league. We’ve stopped shipping goals, Arbroath aside, and it means there’s another 4 players in the team that can mostly concentrate on scoring.

    The problem is when he plays with McGhee. McGhee fits the bill if you want someone to keep it simple and put themselves about. Playing both completely kills any sort of improvisation or skill in the middle which is maybe something Bowyer will accept leaving that for the front four (including Cameron further forward).

    For me in games like yesterday we would've taken the game by the scruff of the neck earlier with Williamson in (who was our best player for well over a month in November/December). He's technically up there with our best players and puts the likes of Mulligan to shame.

    Maguire is the new guy in central midfield and therefore will be judged as he's giving us absolutely nothing different and really isn't doing much better than Grayson. Luckily the teams we've played have been reeking so far so we would've won either way. Let's see what he does at Morton away.

    Thank you.

    It’s fairly obvious McGhee’s Bowyer’s main man in midfield. Not for me though. I’d rather go Williamson in alongside Maguire and another which is obviously Cameron just now on how he’s performing. I’d play McGhee right back on Friday although Fisher has done really well. 

    We won’t get a much harder game in this league than facing the league leaders in a must win game like Maguire played in. Let’s be honest he’s a big improvement on Grayson.

    What a rabble that Cove were, keeper fannying around and wasting time from about the thirteenth minute until we scored, horrendous. 

    The lot of them were at it. Logan ran the keeper close to being the worst. It’s exactly how it was at Cove earlier this season. f**k watching that week in week out. 

  5. I’ve liked what I’ve saw of Maguire so far. He’d be the guy who plays in front of the 2 centrehalfs with the rest of the midfielder’s battling out for the other 2 positions. I’d like it to be Williamson and Cameron on current form. It’s not by coincidence that we’ve hardly conceded any opportunities against us the games Maguire’s played in. You’d think Motherwell could do with him in their current predicament. 

    I’m looking for a guy in his position to win headers, win tackles, break up play, cover for others dragged out of position and to pass forward early. That’s what he’s been doing. I’m not looking for him to be opening teams up. 


  6. That’s on the manager tonight. Dreadful substitutions. Lost the plot with 4 strikers on the park and Cameron as 1 of the midfielders who really more an attacking player than a midfielder. 

    That really ought to have been at least 5 or 6 in normal time alone. Gilt edge chance after gilt edge chance missed during the game for the 3rd time since the last Raith game which is now a real worry.

    The fabulous Dee Archive has us winning 3 out of the 4 games. 

    2-1 and 6-3 at Dens 

    1-0 and 1-4 at Love Street

    Am i right in thinking that TC's first goals were in the 6-3 after we signed him from the DABs?

    Coyne ripped them apart that day and done everything but score, a bit like us on Saturday! Think he had 2 or 3 assists. Vaguely remind Coyne signing for us the day of his debut and 1st saw it mentioned on Grandstand at dinner time.
