On the face of it 4-0 to anyone who wasn’t at the game is a total pumping but we need to pick the bones of it. At not point in that game, until maybe the last 5 minutes, did I think we’d lose by that margin or be pumped. It just wasn’t that type of game. Anyone who sees we lost 4-0 would think we were under the cosh from minute 1 to minute 90 and it simply wasn’t the case. That’s why I made the earlier comment “it was never a 4-0 game”. A 4-0 score line yes but never a 4-0 game as it completely flattered Airdrie. The full situation is made worse because of what happened last year, rightly so. But at no point was that ever like the Queen’s Park game. Sitting at Firhill it was like Queen’s Park would score with every single attack and dominated from the first minute. That’s not what happened yesterday. Luck was shining more on Airdrie yesterday with the two fortuitous goals. My biggest annoyance would be at the chances we wasted again with Morrison in particular being the biggest culprit. Plenty of people have been at pains to point out that the first half was pretty even. Anyone reading this who wasn’t at the game will not find anything to support a sense that it was one way traffic for 90 minutes. However………the minute Airdrie got the opener, the usual suspects went straight into loser mode, and stopped competing. At the end of the day, the 4-0 was a bigger margin than any of the drubbings from Airdrie last season…….despite us competing for 40 minutes or so this time……..and one other thing…….be careful of getting comfort from the “not conceded a goal in open play” stat. We have seen that the LC still isn’t a barometer of how good or bad a side you have. League business is where that is sorted out, and that gives us the Montrose game. They didn’t score yesterday against the side currently sitting bottom. Like us, they haven’t scored a goal this season. Yesterday was maybe a wake up call we’d be better off heeding rather than trying to explain away as being undeserved and not really a cause for concern.
