Not getting why after 6 games that you put next weeks game in the must win category for us

Arbroath lose and they start to become rooted to the bottom. Arbroath win and they're within one point of us. We will have lost 5 out of 7 games with a transitional team that has trouble stopping goals going in and equally cannot score at the other end.

And our next game after that is against high flying Ayr.

The next 3 games are vitally important if we are to survive in the league, as 2 wins from the 1st quarter is not good enough.  Wouldn't be the least surprised if Arbroath get their first win of the season next week.  In reply  to loans then I believe that we can have a total of 5 at any point during the season, so we have space for 2 more, but sadly we can only take any more from the Premier League as we cannot take from below the Championship nor from England or abroad.

There is a lot about what Murray has done in his time in charge that I find worrying, but the worst is this utter nonsense of subbing of the defence with 20 to 30 minutes to go. It is basically an admission that he has no ability to make any tactical tweaks at all. 

We could've quite easily lost that 4-0 in the end. Totally unacceptable.

Still not getting its a must win game with 30 games still to play

We,re doing things in reverse this season and things will change when the clocks go back 😉😆

If we sack Murray at the end of October maybe you'll be right.

How many good players have we signed this summer?

Easton looks okay. The guy O’Riordan maybe. Any more?

Brown but is he better than Spencer or Matthews. The rest are crap. Nolan passes everything back and is weak, Millen is just terrible, Connell I've said my piece and McBride is no better than Zanatta. The young lad from Aberdeen waste of a signing.  I hold out no hope that Murray can identify and sign a striker.

Tbf we've got f**k all on the bench most weeks to allow for "tactical tweaks" And I'd rather he gambled and went all out attack than just settled for a 1 or 2 goal defeat

Recruitment wise. 

Nolan, solid enough 

O''Riordan, looks decent but still young. 

Brown, I think he is decent enough and has done a number of jobs so far. 

Easton, is class and can be the best player in the league on his day. 

 McBride, too soon to say. 

Ngwenya, a strange one as it looks like Dick is favoured left back. He's had 1 half against Dundee out of position. 

Connell, has shown nothing to suggest he can do a job. 

Millen, overall a poor signing who doesn't defend particularly well and is non existent as an attacking force which then hinders the man playing in front of him.

Cove, won one game thus far.... against us. 

Arbroath, haven't won a game yet... play us next. Absolute stick on we'll gift them their first win. 

ICT, umpteen big name players missing, conceded nearly double figures in last few games... saw us off comfortably.

Have to agree with this.

His tactics today were Gary Lockesque. If you're going to go three at the back then surely you sub Millen and retain the spine of the defence, and to go two at the back with ten minutes still to play was lunacy. You do that if you're a goal down heading into stoppage time and it will only work if you have any sort of physical presence up front, which we don't. If he was going to do that, he'd have been as well chucking one of the big centre backs up front to try to win headers so the smaller players might pick up the scraps.

Remember how I said that Murray has paid his dues. Has he hell. He’s learned nothing. This league is so unforgiving and we’ll reap what we sow. The lack of any experience in the defence and forward areas is a concern. Signing so many kids isn’t the way forward in the championship.

Yup, we’re going down if we don’t dump this imposter.

I don’t wish to labour the point, but why on earth did you guys free Musonda?  He’s absolutely immense.

The manager wanted to bring in his own guys. A decision just about everyone said was bad at the time and has come to pass. We ended up with a couple of players with about 40 senior games between them. And Christophe Berra decided he'd had enough as well. 

The kicker is that Musonda can play RB as well. 

Good job there, Ian.

Murray clearly thinks we can get better. I miss Musonda.
