Looking forward to the game today, ever the optimist I think we will see changes in the team. They will go 442 and we will see some semblance of a style of play and tactics and Keena will score if he gets a partner beside him! 
 

Anyone want some of what I’m on? 😂

Yes

Im no master tactician or anything but it does seem to me there are obvious flaws with our ill-fated 4-2-3-1 formation, or at least the version of it we are playing.

If we keep playing defensively minded players at left and right back who don’t advance into forward areas, that leaves gaps on the left and right side of midfield.  If we also play two deep central midfielders, that compounds that issue and the gap grows more obvious.  Gaps on pitches will naturally get filled, so that means the only ones that can fill it are those playing left and right side of the attacking three.   However, those two players are meant to be the ones supporting the striker, so lo and behold, the striker looks increasingly isolated and devoid of support.

Likewise, assuming the intention of the left and right of the ‘3’ is therefore that they get the ball deep to drive at the opponents and get crosses into the box.  Let’s assume that players is Morrison on the right – we have one striker up top being marked by at least 2, maybe even 3 defenders.  The other options at various times are Fotheringham, Telfer, Alston, Gomis, Leitch, Connolly and Francis – a powerhouse of aerial threat they are not.

I don’t like the formation, but for my untrained simple eyes, it only works if we play full backs who can get forward.

Of course, you could just play 4-4-2.

Anyone with half a brain will know Clyde will set up to stop us playing with the formation that we have been playing. So change it and throw them a curve ball. Que 1 up front

Stop us playing ?

There needs to be more a balance middle to front or in our case middle middle to front.

Our width is absolutely honking which is no surprise our goals have set pieces or shots from edge of the box.

I'm absolutely dreading what carnage I see from our team sheet today even tho we pushed Morrison and Kai more forward on Tuesday it was piss poor and clueless.

I'd like to see Morrison up top with Keena. Keena has not really played with a partner for us. Morrison will be harder to mark when not limited to one half the pitch.
A competent team would take advantage of others seeking to double up on one player.

Rookie managers trying complicated tactical setups is a recipe for disaster.

Rookie managers are a recipe for disasters full stop.

Clyde at 7/1 for the win seems easy money to me I'm sad to say.

What are the odds on M&M getting their jotters? Might be a tasty double?

Doubled up with never really  apologising for all the made up allegations against fans, just makes you wonder how we still have a decent fan base.

It's quite clear nothings changed and the old addage of 'its our club and we'll do what we want with it 'is clearly to the fore.  If it was to be the Martin Ritchie stand this would have all been sorted by now you can bet on that.

The "decent fan base" - I'd say outstanding given the utter shitshow the club has been both on and off the pitch for well over a decade now - is literally what keeps them in control. Too many fans don't want to hear it, but the only way real change will ever be effected is when supporters in significant numbers stop giving them money. Like customers of any other business whose owners treat them like muck. But there's still far too much of the "real fan" nonsense endemic in much of our fanbase which keeps them handing over hundreds of pounds year after year to a shower of c**s who treat them with naked, undisguised contempt and have carte blanche to run "their" club in whatever manner they like. There are zero consequences for their hopelessness and ineptitude for anyone other than those who are funding it, which is the fans.  Until that stops, it isn't going to change.

Any chance Miller might start himself up top with Keena?

After his Airdrie display I hope to god he doesn't.

After his cameo the other night I’d actually be surprised if we seen him on the park again.

Is been wanting him to play more of a part recently especially since our only other options are a rancid Sammon and jobber Francis but he was so bad when he came on. Just looked absolutely finished and a shadow of the player that we even seen last season.
