I’d argue that if anything we were in a better position than other teams. Kirkpatrick, Eadie, Meggatt and Hamilton on loan from hearts in theory are 4 good signings to a squad that was already playing quite well and had a good depth. The only long term injury we had was to Paul McLean which was a sore one. But apart from that no one was out for a sustained period of time without there being a decent enough back up to replace them. For me this is the best Albion squad put together since the fan takeover - including the team that won the play offs at East Fife.
If I look at Stranraer in the game last Saturday, they only had 5 players on their bench. Apart from a small look at Greenhorn against QP we never had to rely on our youth players. Absolutely ridiculous to suggest that we were disadvantaged more than other teams. Cop out from the board who seem to be more interested in making excuses than admitting the fact that they made an arse of giving Kev a new contract before the season ended.
We missed out on the play offs due to a persistence with 3 at the back which hasn’t worked in attack or defence since December, our inability to score at home, the fact that the goals we did score were basically just Andy Ryan assisting himself, and constantly bottling it against any team in the top half. Little to do with injuries, quite a lot to do with a poor manager IMO. I really really hope Kev proves me wrong next season but I’m skeptical to say the least.
