    We get pressed high from goal kicks, every player marked and still we play it short then lose the ball in our half and then that’s just repeated again if hit through the game. Then we’ve got captain Hetherington just generally being absolutely fucking horrendous a complete passenger in the middle of the park and Brad fucking McKay’s hilarious attempts at passing the ball and defending. We’ve had our share of horrendous centre backs in recent years (Dallison, Harrison, McKenna, Buchanan, Durnan) but McKay is comfortably worse than them all. Like it’s not even close or up for debate.

    That really does beggar belief.

  2. In the last 30 years, who would be the midfielder to play alongside Latapy (has to be him) in the midfield in a best of X1 with a 4-4-2 formation? I’ve always been a bit reluctant to say Vaulks because he never played in the top flight but I think it has to be him, just because he’s the all-round package and firm fan favourite.

    One of my mates works in the commercial department at Brisbane Roar, they couldn't wait to see the back of him.   

    And you're spot on with your description.  

     

    Being a bit of a podcast fan myself, I listened to his ‘God pod’ series recently. Might be birthday caird pish but he does seem to be well-thought of in the game and came across down-to-earth.

    Don’t get me wrong, there’s not a chance in hell that Robbie Fowler is going to rock up at this clusterf*ck of a club, but it’s the sort of appointment I’d prefer to see us make this time round. It’s utterly depressing reading the same old washed-up names being touted for the job every time it becomes available, with absolutely no guarantees whatsoever that any of them will be a success given what they’ll be working under. We’ve went down the  experienced and rookie path before, both have taken us on a journey into the abyss. I just want something a bit left-field this time. A name that if fu*k all else, will generate a bit of excitement for once.

    And it would be “for once”. Don’t think we’ve ever had a left-field appointment.

     

    Edit: Jim Duffy (still a rookie though).

    Scott Brown had the worst case of Paul McStay Syndrome since, well, Paul McStay.

    Could have been genuinely brilliant but happy to stay in his comfort zone scudding Hamilton and Ross County eight times a season.

    I admire him for sticking around. Some easy games for sure but not without tough games either.

    I doubt as well he’d have had as prolonged a career if he played the way he did at Hibs.

    Watch it again.

    McCracken gets his positioning all wrong, lets the ball bounce over his head, and when he should have committed a cheeky shirt pull and take a booking, lets the attacker go through which leads to the chance.

    I'm not saying MacDonald shouldn't have done better, but if McCracken had done his job properly ICT wouldn't have been within fifty yards of the box.

    I think it’s more the positioning than commiting a foul. He’s been outmuscled and by the time there’s a chance to tug the shirt he’s been spun round and facing the other way from the opponent.

    What is this hard on that some fans continue to have for Hughes?

    He has been gone 12 years and didn’t exactly leave on the best of terms.

    Move on.

    Might have something to do with him being a big part of her most successful era since the late 40s and also being fairly successful as our manager too (which ended on a sour note).

     

    Move on? That’s one those easy things to say. He’s an active manager who has just kept a struggling team in the PL. Not the biggest feat of all time but that’s what he was appointed to do and he’s achieved it with a bit to spare in the end.

    His first 3 games for us were meh then bang he hit the ground running,Killie away i was screaming cross cross and then he just scored,

    That game you mention was my first ever game!

     

    One blurry memory I have is Sammy chasing down a player....like he just appeared from nowhere! It was strange and mentioning here doesn’t do it just justice but fans were caught out by it. I remember folk around our section of the ground talking about it.

     

    Next game I went to was a disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Ayr which was a blow then my next was the magnificent 7-1 against Raith and we never looked back, arguably for the next five years (relegation  included but we were praised for attacking football).

    Couldn’t have put it better, another shop window dummy we’ve ensured for two years. PR skills ? Really ? Some need to get a grip of reality on here. We’re languishing in the third tier of Scottish football with the worst set of players that tossed this league, and now blaming the PR skills, couldn’t make it Fck.....up

    No need to single him out if it wasn’t necessary, that’s the point. Stick on a release list or if it couldn’t wait because of other negotiations taking place then fair enough. If it’s deliberate treatment of one player then it shows the club, yet again, in a bad light and doesn’t do us any favours.

     

    Of course, he needed punted.

  10. Rodgers

    Muirhead (he was tolerable at this point)

    LEAHY

    Grant

    McCracken

    Kerr

    Alston/Taiwo

    VAULKS

    Baird (we’d take that level of striker now)

    Miller

    Sibbs

    Subs:

    McHugh

    Alston/Taiwo

    Watson

    Hippolyte/O’Hara

    A.N. Other

    Whoever the sub keeper was

    Loved that squad.

  11. Just seems like another thing the club can’t do right. Ideal scenario  is he’s on another list but maybe it wasn’t possible this time so he had to get the single treatment. 
     

    I see the moaning, PR side of it, I see the folk saying it’s OTT. One things for sure, it’s not uplifting news (just a necessary step).
