Good job two outfield players never got injured!

Shit happens. Deal with it. Blame the manager for having such woeful replacements instead of blaming 'bad luck'. One outfield player injured. One. Just think about that.

I have to add that there has been a spate of bad haircuts to contend with also.

We should still have enough to stay above Cowdenbeath I think.

So when do you think we'll get our next win, as by the end of next weekend we'll be in the relegation play-offs at this rate..

A sad reflection of the modern game. Every c**t has the same hair cut and is an absolute weapon of a human being.

On the law of averages, we are due a win. It's bound to come. A few seasons back we went 9 games without winning before beating Partick Thistle 2-1 at Starks Park. Repetition of this result against Falkirk will do nicely.

It's actually getting a bit obsessive is it not? Maybe just concentrate on your own teams fortunes? You won't find me trotting into your match forums begging for you's to get beat....

Who are Cowden playing anyway?

Scratch that who cares!

Give it a couple of weeks.

Very much doubt it? What will be will be. The league is so tight that it can all change in a matter of weeks. Judging by Alloa's performance on Tuesday they will struggle for points especially away from home.

McGurn is good at this level but he's ageing and is always going to pick up injuries easier. I wouldn't swap him for Flynn though no. Watson being out seems to have caused you all sorts of bother and that would worry me. Two players out isn't unlucky with injury, it's just a standard season. Every other team will have had two players out throughout the season but they just get on with it. Blaming injuries for your threadbare squad isn't correct. That's all I'm saying, not disputing their ability.

If Cowden had Hemmings and Stewart out for any prolonged period they would remain firmly welded in that 9th place.

Absolutely ridiculous argument and you know it is.

Ridiculous argument that if your only 2 recognised goalscorers are out, then yous won't pick up the points...

I reckon his point is justified..

Actually, it's not just the one guy being out, it's the fact that we haven't managed to put a settled back four on the pitch at any time, due both to injuries and suspensions. Laidlaw's form coming in for McGurn was patchy and he did fluff a few goals for us, but it certainly didn't help going into three games with three different central defensive partnerships in front of him we had both cardle and Anderson out for two games which stifled our play as well, you also had Fox playing through an injury for several weeks due to simply not having any other options but for him to play.

Okay then if we are playing ridiculous games like that. I reckon if all 15 of your squad were out injured then you would plummet down the table. How does that sound?

Losing an ageing keeper who has easily been replaced with Robinson (albeit he hasn't started well) and one outfield player is pathetic to say 'we have been unlucky with injuries'. We have had two players out on a number of occasions this season. It happens. It will happen next season and the season after that.

Robinson has played three games of the seventeen since the Morton game when Davie got injured. Before that he'd been over in Sweden.

I think that the injuries we have had were unlucky and have had an impact on the season. They hit two areas where we were a bit weaker than anywhere else for a good while. We had Colin Stewart brought in as back-up and had to get Reece Donaldson back from his loan spell at Peterhead: It isn't exactly world class players we were losing but hardly ideal compared to what we had. McGurn and Watson were fantastic at the start of the season. I don't think it's too difficult to see that we had a solid starting 11 when beginning the season.

With Watson hopefully returning over the next few weeks, I'm hopeful we'll start to turn our winless form around. I think with Baird returning we're looking far more effective up front given his style of play. If we can put together a spell with a consistent back line of Booth-Hill-Watson and Thomson or Mullen then things should become more stable.

You clearly had the budget to replace these players but your manager obviously didn't see it as a priority. Instead be brought in full backs and another striker then eventually a goalkeeper without ever solving the centre back problem. That in itself would worry me.
