The captaincy, it's been a bit of a shambles, firstly giving it to Miller then taking it off him to give to Hetherington who by all accounts isn't really a talker on the park, then the sending off at Airdrie, Miller spits the dummy refuses to take the arm band( obviously felt aggrieved), and then nobody is captain against Clyde or at least nobody was wearing the arm band? 

Nesbitt was captain and wearing an armband.

Im not sure if you’ve just decided to make stuff up but against Peterhead Hetherington was barking out orders and was screaming at one point to “win it back, win it back”. I definitely wouldn’t say he wasn’t vocal based on what I’ve seen.
 

Nesbitt was captain against Clyde as well

One of the things that annoys me most about Deans tenure was the absolute diabolical decision to appoint Gow. Everyone and their dug had heard he was a front for a consortium..apart from Gary Deans obviously. Maybe if hed went to games before being chairman he would have heard this. End result was a knife edge vote with the future direction of the club up for grabs. Lets not forgot the small shareholders carried it through. Now we have Rawlins pulling the strings ( which I dont think is  bad thing at present, time will tell),while Deans and his cohorts hanging onto the coat tails and will no doubt claim credit if were successful on the park. Look at the previous 18 months with this bod, horrendous record. Rawlins himself said the club was a mess, hence the restructuring. Deans and co are merely puppets for Rawlins, whos intentions we still dont truely know, but he has at least experience and a track record in football.

On the money . Fortunately GD and the rest of his pals are virtually in secretarial positions for Rawlins with little or no shareholding. Like many before him GD means well but isnt really up to the job . I think Rawlins is well aware of the BOD limitations but remember they are volunteers who give up their time -  Board of helpers seems more appropriate than board of directors now ! 

Rawlins will openly say this is the best BOD he has ever worked with

People on here seem to have it in for Hetherington because one prominent poster doesn't like him for some reason.

You can only call it on what I have seen. He never struck me as any good at Alloa and his performance against Airdrie when he was pressurised was awful. 
I would play the young Albanian lad. Technically and physically way ahead of Hetherington.

I agree that Krasniqi looks a cut above but at least we have options now. Hetherington will be fine for us but you are absolutely entitled to your opinion.

Looking forward to the game tomorrow. Was impressed with us last week although found it slightly frustrating Telfer was instructed to come deep all the time to collect the ball when it would have been easier for the centre half to run 50 yards into the space in front. That’s me nit picking though! 
 

Hopefully we can translate possession dominance into more clear cut chances in the future!

It's something that annoys me and I don't want to single out a post as loads of posters do it but this "x player never impressed me at y club" so basically people are judging players on 1 or 2 or at most a few games v us or possibly a few highlights of games then completely writing players off before they've kicked a ball for us. Even when we play teams I know I tend to notice players who are outstanding v us not someone having an average game. 

Let's hope tomorrow I notice none of their players as they all have average at best games and the bairns go on and on

It’s horses for courses. Maybe Hetheringtons grit and guts will be needed at times as Ernie’s silky skills may be deployed in other games

This. One of the reasons for having a squad. Sometimes we need to replace like with like, other times we need to try summat different.

That’s what I’m trying to say mate - it’s too early to right guys off especially we now have a manager the majority of us trust.

Krasniqi isn't exactly scared to do the dirty stuff either. Clyde players were just bouncing off him last week. Hetherington is a decent option in the squad but needs to learn to curb his silly tackles especially when your two up and cruising.  If he doesn't watch the decision will be taken for sheerin as he racks up the suspensions.

I don't think we've seen enough of either of them yet to fully form a view.  Krasniqi looks very assured while Hetherington is unspectacular and less obvious on the pitch (because he's not 7ft 9) but breaks things up well.  Don't forget he was part of the team that went 2 nil up in the first place before his rush of blood to the head.  

I think Hetherington will come back in but Krasniqi is banging hard on the door.

Krasniqi for games when we will have a lot of the ball. Perfect for rotating possession side to side with the odd ball through the lines. (Last weekend)

Heatherington for games where possession will likely be more even and turnover of possession is more frequent. (This weekend)

Both are good at what they do.

We should have most of the ball in every game we play in this league to be honest.

We have seen more of Hetherington than Krasniqi but agree we haven't seen enough of either. 

I've said previously I'm not convinced of Hetherington's control, passing at times and decision making versus the silky Baptie and it's a no brainer for me so far but that could change in time.

We still not signed a striker? Keena will be fine but Ompreon's a complete gamble and Wilson's absolute dug meat.

Cavani might be free soon, downside he has to isolate after international duty 😉
