I'd start Sammon in central midfield on Saturday because he's got plenty of pace and energy. Should be a good bet to be able to run on to big Durnan's knock downs from centre forward. Telfer should be able to provide plenty of quality crosses from full back as well to facilitate this tactic. Mutch will need to be at his best to keep Robbie Leitch on the bench as well!

Maybe worth a try can't be any worse than last Saturday.

For me, we’re always going to have jobbers in our squad at this level, a fair few for that matter.  As long we have someone who puts the ball away consistently and the rest do their job or, at worst, don’t spoil things, that’s more realistic. Reeling off all these poor players is just going round in circles. Really, is Blair Alston being poor a surprise if we’re playing hoofball? No. Legs is what are needed in the middle of the park in this league.  Flair from wide areas is a nice bonus.

Lets just get out of this league...automatically!

The best thing about the statement is Martindale admitting he's been pulling the strings for years.

"I've been trying to sign him since he left St Mirren"

Even Alan Stubbs realised he wasn't very good and that's saying a lot. That being said god knows who we'll get if Reilly's ending up in the premiership.

Reilly wasnt a St Mirren player when Stubbs came in. 

As said previously it's a free hit on Saturday, yep prize money greater for Scottish cup for an extended run but I don't believe the M&M future is dependent on that game, we still have a board that repays relegation with managers keeping their jobs and being allowed to spunk cash for promotion when they were previously out their depth.

Hartley been the only time I've seen us be quick about a sacking, tho we were a laughing stock in TV, press and media about our comedy signings. 

If we are to change managers, then it should be after the Montrose game, whilst Jan window is open. We should have our feelers out now incase with no Rays please.

Reilly was offered a contract by Ross. Ross left and Stubbs then took that contract off the table supposedly although he disputes that ,and so Reilly left. 

The Arbroath game is still important imho as a win gets the confidence up at least. Another defeat and it's not going to help get us ready for Montrose. I agree though I doubt they will leave after Saturday whilst we are still top of the league.

I know this will get slated but I think Sammon would be worth a shot at left mid. He’s a shite finisher, however, he does still have good pace, strength and is decent with his feet. With Connelly being out, we really don’t have many decent options there so it could be worth a try

The press had Ross taking Reilly to Sunderland so much so I thought he was there. In any case Stubbs wouldn't have any real reason to judge Reilly as player other than previous opposition. 

The cup game obviously has importance for form change but I don't think anyone would choose a win over Arbroath to league success, yep I want both but league first is key and as club we ain't that ruthless.

I wouldn't be keen as a starter at left mid but for sure from the bench.

He has had a few decent performances recently but still isn't the answer up top for us

I'd rather we just signed a decent left winger to compete with.connolly to be honest. The thought of sammon helping the left back out defensively doesn't fill me full of hope.

Mutch

Mercer Hall Dixon Kelly

Morrison Alston Gomis Telfer

Francis Keena

For me on Saturday, obviously assuming Keena's fit enough to start and Connolly's still out injured. Dowds and Sammon need dropped completely and I wouldn't mind seeing Francis get another shot at it even if that means he's the one played out wide left.

Miller in for mercer if you ask me. Telfer in the middle beside gomis and I'd keep sammon up front with Keena if he's fit. Wide left could be anyone. The options apart from Connolly are all shit.

I wouldn’t argue but would drop Mercer and bring back Miller to RB. Doubt Keena would last more than 60ish minutes but I’d play him from the off ( sorry still would play Sammon as Francis is just crap)

Let's look on the bright side. At least this year's January window has so far been a lot better than last year's at this stage due to the simple fact we haven't sign da vita.

I definitely agree with this. I was merely saying it would be something worth trying in our current situation. I would also be worried about Sammon supporting the left back

I would go with Dowds as well.

He is a far better passer of the ball and his link up play is better than Francis or Salmon.

I think he was signed to partner Keena.

I’d go 

Mutch

Miller Hall Dixon Kelly

Morrison Gomis Telfer Connolly

Sammon Keena

 

If Connolly is still injured I’d play Telfer there and Todd in the middle. Dowds is awful it’s like having a big coo upfront whereas at least Sammon is getting into the right positions, so Sammon just ahead of Francis for me.

Not so sure I agree with, for me  it’s exactly what we need. Tough ground but a tie we should be confident of winning. One of the days away sorely missed. 
Also a measure for all to see what response to a dismal last few games. I,ll take with a pinch of salt the earlier post about defeat and M&M walking. 


They should already be gone
