If you let Keena go then your looking to probably bring two strikers in to cover injuries and suspension, because the thought of your two back ups being the aforementioned Ompreon and Wilson is terrifying. 

If we can bring in an experienced striker to replace Keena we’d have better cover up front than we do now

But the point is who can be moved on to free up wages. Wilson can’t play for another SPFL club this season and I don’t see Ompreon having many takers. 

That leaves Keena who I imagine will be on a decent wage and would have more interest.

Any incoming players will have been budgeted for.

Keena is the best of the three (faint praise) so should be retained.

For an awful few seconds yesterday Wilson was warming up to come on.

Need some depth in the squad to keep the wage thieves away from the action.

Exactly but if hypothetically we could use Keena’s wage on an experienced striker instead, that would improve the squad imo.

Ompreon and Wilson will be on buttons, are unlikely to attract much interest and in Wilson’s case can’t go elsewhere.

Keena on the other hand I suspect would have teams interested.

Don't think Keenas a guy we should be punting. He pulled up early yesterday, not like he's been completely rubbish the full time.

Goals aren't an issue for us at the moment, any money should be spent on 2 defenders and a dominating midfielder. 

I'd be happy to see 2 new defenders brought in with next season in mind. Getting them playing together now... forming that partnership.

Always plenty of midfielders available in the summer and again we are light in midfield but our central pairing at the back is the immediate problem.

Some of these players are a complete embarrassment to the role footballer. I hope Rennie doesn't come out with the great bunch of lads shite again this week. We've had it all season from sheerin and then you recently. They aren't a great bunch of lads they're the biggest bunch of loser shitebags ever to wear the navy blue jersey.

Nah....Hartley's collection will win that title forever I expect

Not at all as I've said already there are players in the team like miller, Mackay and hall who pep guardiola could improve so we're unfortunately limited till they are replaced with better players.  Biggest concern yesterday though was the sudden lack of real attacking threat from the side. That had certainly improved but yesterday took a step back again just thankfully the young lad managed to take his two chances very well and that was the difference. We're back up to a level where we can beat the dross again which had become a real struggle under sheerin. Now it's time to see how we do against the better sides which we've really struggled to make any impact against. Montrose away will show us where we are currently. Hopefully more bodies in this week .

Pep can't get a tune out of £100M Grealish.

So many of our players had an off day yesterday, it happens at every club in the world, it's a skill to win games in these times and although we are not league contenders every team who wins a league this season will have games like we had yesterday and won, for us it's all about a play off position and just maybe those 2 or 3pts will be crucial.

By fuk Martin was a contender for mom, showing how many were off.

Jakubiak clearly isn't fancied at Dundee, bring him home. Didn't even make it off the bench yesterday.

He's been constantly injured at Dundee so wouldn't read that much into it. I'd take a fit Jakubiak back but the injury record seems like a gamble if he was available.

The biggest change in the Dumbarton and Airdrie (2nd half)games was the pace in the team, yesterday that was lacking, perhaps due to East Fifes tactics or our personnel. I'm pretty sure it will be looked into and with a few new faces, we hopefully will get the balance right.

There was a delayed nativity service at my church this morning, hopefully that means Santa will be along soon to leave us a couple of Defenders and a hard cnut for the middle of the park!  Is ask for him to take McKay and Hetheringron away with him but doubt there's enough space in his sleigh for that amount of shite!

To be fair one of those injuries he can't really be blamed for considering he was attacked on a night out in Dundee which resulted in him needing surgery on his shoulder. Out of contract in the summer also, bring the man home.

It would be a no brainer for me if we could get an experienced striker in as opposed to a guy who at best contributes the odd good set piece.

I don’t get the love in from some at all- he generally contributes absolutely nothing. I suspect he was taken off yesterday as he wasn’t involved in play at all rather than injury.

I’d be happy with Dowds, Kabia, Keena and Morrison as our forwards from now and until the end of the season. It would rule out Goodwillie also. Priority for this week coming needs to be sorting out the defence and midfield.

They are all crap. Keena just appears to be very popular amongst a section of our fan base.

According to the young team yesterday he has a massive c*ck, not sure if that is a reason for his popularity.
As far as the playing side is concerned I think he has the ability to score goals, but his application on the pitch is very questionable, not sure how his performance is in training.

Keena's a natural finisher. We won't see him missing many sitters. It's true that his playing style is somewhat 'relaxed' but I think he works a lot harder than some, well, one in particular, make out. I thought Dowds was poor yesterday which was hopefully just an off day, but I'd like to give him and Kabia a shot up front next week with Keena being available from the bench.

Not sure about an off day , we played much the same as we played against Clyde a couple of games before but fortunately we were playing a worse side and we had a boy who could finish.

The really interesting thing with a combination of Dowds and Kiaba is that defences in this league won’t really have come up with a goal scoring combo like them. Dowds scores 4 in the last three games, Kiaba scores two on his debut. Both over 6’, both carry an aerial threat. 
That’s all well and good, but they need the service. If they get it, they just might be the goal machine we need to counter the concede machine at the other end of the park.

Now get Hall and McKay replaced by competent defenders, and yes, we might start to gain a big chunk of momentum, and that’s a difficult thing to stop at this point in the season.

Not only do we have to be better than QP, we have to be better than whatever sits in 9th place in the Championship.

There is a post on the Airdrie thread where some tit attempts to excuse Airdrie fans giving Nazi salutes!

His argument is it’s acceptable because they’ve always done it.

Scummy wee club.

They have a really bad element amongst their support, very right wing and staunch as feck.

Been a few years since weve had the now possible duo of two six footers starting upfront, after a pathetic return from our first half season, surely we’ll add too in a very positive way. 
As said in post it’s the all service/support that’s now critical, and interesting to see how We set up on Saturday.

Same old - and getting passed off saying - can we get our back four sorted.

Can only hope our manager can conjure/magic up a couple of Hughes/Baptie CBs.

Hope you have a good week Martin, it may just go down in history…..

You know what really annoys me about football fans, comments like this:

“Am I the only one who sees we need better defenders?”

”Why hasn’t the manager signed any defenders? That is where we are weak”

Some of our fans are absolutely mental 😂

Surely can't just be me that thinks we need new defenders? Starting to wonder why Rennie hasn't sorted that issue yet.
I like Rennie so far, but it does gove me cause for concern that he thinks we dont need to improve in the defensive area.
