In L1, we have always been decent at beating the minnows, but our stats against the upper half opponents is far from great, and up to now, the management team have been unable to turn that around (with the notable exception of FC Edinburgh and Alloa who have now snuck into 4th place). Our failings are pretty clear……an inability to beat a good number of top half sides who in turn, have beaten us in both previous seasons and this one. I didn’t say McGlynn is defensive. I said he is cautious, and there’s a big difference between the two. The killer stat is the 6 games against Dunfermline, Airdrie and Montrose. Zero wins, 4 points from 18, scored 2, conceded 7. Substitute Dunfermline for Cove or Queen’s Park, and it’s so similar to last season…..it’s in these core games that we continue to fail……..plus a couple of Kelty curve balls obviously. The discussion wasn't about form or comparisons between this and last season. I responded to your view (1.) McGlynn’s primary aim will be to avoid defeat” on Monday, (2.) he’d take a point now, and (3.) he isn’t an adventurous manager The stats don’t support your view and there isn’t a big difference between “defensive” and “cautious” in football terms. They are one and the same. @bairn88 also make a good point btw. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
