I don’t know how you’ve missed it given you are used to playing at this level, but league one isn’t exactly full of superstars.   You’d be utterly delighted to be the best in this league, but you aren’t.

I believe that’s called stating the fucking obvious.

A lot went wrong today but poor finishing/decision making especially in the first 20mins cost us & let Clyde back into the game who were then winning every 50/50. Not good enough & let down the circa 800 travelling support in terms of fight to be honest. 

2 great goals from Morrison & Lawal and Gary Oliver did well to take his but it’s not consistent enough form to get to top spot. Centre halves today were rank rotten 🤦🏼‍♂️

Oh and leaking the team on here/social media is pish poor behaviour & not for the first time by the same poster I see, as they did the same thing before the Kelty game in October.

Whilst I’m moaning, flags not getting into stadiums is pish behaviour too. Especially when it’s nothing offensive.

Burrell wasn't up to scratch and hasn't been for the last few games. Alegria was very unlucky to have his shot saved at the end after brilliant play to get in behind.

Morrison scores a screamer for the first then misses a gilt edged chance in the second half with the dink over the keeper. We got lucky twice for Oliver's goal as I don't have a clue what the defender on the line was doing.

Lawal showed flashes of magic but as has been mentioned he really needs to stay on his feet more often as the tackles were too soft to be fouls.

The Clyde third looked offside but no complaints with the two finishes from Allan they were excellent.

The first Clyde goal I'll need to see back again but I'm sure Mckay has the chance to put a tackle in and changes his mind last minute, they then lay the ball off and tuck it away.

Two points thrown away today.  First 20 minutes we should have been 2/3 up then we take the lead. Clyde equaliser there was a ball just needing to be booted up the park to clear the danger and for whatever reason ( McKay ) I think just leaves it a shot comes in that the keeper makes an arse of saving. 

Clyde start pressing out short passing at the back and we start getting turned over in mildfield leading to a well taken second goal.

Our equaliser was fortunate the guy on the line should have cleared Oliver’s shot.

Clyde 3rd goal looked a foul in Midfield on Ola then offside but again their guy put it away well.

Our equaliser was a peach from Ola and we should then have gone on to win.

Williamson looked no where near fit, personally i’d Give up on him. McKay was back to last years form, Henderson might be better suited moving to midfield and bringing  in Mackie,McCann was solid again. Hogarth was poor at first goal and is uncomfortable and too slow passing about from the back. 

The guy who posts the info he has re the team needs to take a think to himself. 

Lastly Nesbitt outswinging corners, he must have taken 20 these last three games no joy from any, some abysmal. Opposite side all inswinging corners by Nesbitt or anyone else cause panic every time

Couldn’t agree more and thought that when I read it initially. Most of us listen to McGlynn’s interview on Friday night on FTV and he tries to keep his ‘cards closed to his chest’ regarding team selection and injuries etc.
I really can’t understand what planet some of our fans are on that allows them to pass “privileged” information like that on? it beggars belief, some time it’s better to say nothing rather than coming across like a “billy bigbaws” trying to impress and show how much they are in the know. It’s just plain ridiculous.
I thought the leaks had stopped???

I'd bring in Walsh too, whoever the f**k he is!

The season isn't even half over. Plenty of games to be played. 

We started today with 8 of the players who got us relegated last season. 7 against you lot.

I'm pretty sure your dross from last year ain't at the level of ours, by fuk we have competition winners in there

Tbh I would drop Nesbitt altogether. Plenty of running about but very little end product imo.

Mcguffie is the opposite in that he can be invisible in games but has the ability to pop up with a good strike occasionally.

The Nesbitt I've got all the time in the world to shoot or pick a pass today sums him up. 

He was justified to have a shot but the minimum was to hit the target. 

As mentioned above by someone, the midfield balance today is way off, worked when we were on top but when that shifts it clearly doesn't.

To all the fans who think that McGlynn is the "best that we can get", you'll be pleased to know that his win statistics with us are the best of his managerial career.

We're doomed. 😋

Enjoying some sun until the results came in. Haven’t even bothered listening to the managers post match interview nor the highlights. It doesn’t take much to work out we are brutally short in defence albeit Donaldson missing was a blow. Williamson starting is baffling after such a long time out, and if I’m reading most posts correctly, we’ve continued with one up front. McGlynn and the feel good factor over, at very best we will make the playoffs. 
Not sure if true but hearing after the Edinburgh game we’re in a bit more financial trouble than what’s been released publicly. Looking forward to the AGM.

Worth pointing out that I genuinely don’t think we’d have won that league had it been played out in full, let alone called a week later than it was after our inevitable draw/loss away to Peterhead.

I didn't think nesbitt was that dreadful yesterday his pass through for lawal before the opening goal was excellent and he covered most of the pitch but mcginn needs far more help than him and Oliver are going to give him that's for sure. It also means lawal whose supposed to be a number 10 is he not in this formation spends far too much time helping out the midfield isolating burrell up top.  At the end of the day we scored enough goals and had enough chances to win comfortably but our two shitebag centrebacks managed managed to ensure we only got one point. I'm not in the mcglynn out camp the majority on here were of the opinion that this was more than a one season job when he took over but now we seem to be expecting a lot more. Mistakes have been made in recruitment again mind you but a lot fewer than in previous seasons. Decision not to bring in a right back a poor one that's hampering us and mcglynn has complained about having too many similar players which is correct but why then sign Oliver and Kennedy to add to the midget midfield brigade whilst doing little to move on some of the players we already have? We're crying out for a midfield enforcer to allow the likes of mcginn and lawal to do their stuff instead. It's still a good bit to go but I think we'll make the playoffs comfortably and then it's not impossible to beat the likes of Hamilton or Arbroath . Lot still to play for but we badly need some wheeling and dealing in January to get more consistency out the side.

Interesting?

My moaning is only based on public information as I am certainly NOT itk.

As you say we should learn a lot at the AGM.

I don’t know a thing about the clubs financial situation, but why is anyone surprised if it is worse than we thought! It’s not like we weren’t warned, but lots of you on here didn’t like it when the directors told it like it was. If you feel strongly enough to post on here then surly you’d want the club to be successful/survive. I read some posters on here taking an FSS membership, then cancelling it after a bad result, then taking it back out again after a good result. Furfucksake!
