Fordyce and Brownlie have played well as a central defensive pair. Our weakness is out wide, so Im not sure why you'd want to play wingbacks with no one in front to give them at least some protection.

You then have only three attacking positions to fill. If we stick with 4-4-2 and play two wingers, we have four attacking positions.

I dont really see what benefits three at the back gives us right now

They have Yes,Although against Brechin Rooney and Marshall done well coming further further but Dumbarton then again may not be the game to try it

Yes only three positions but likely one will be Danny or Even Dobbie in behind two Strikers which I find more effective, Personally I feel Dobbie Behind Lyle and Kane would be better than Stirling and Danny out wide with Lyle and Dobbie up top With full backs creating width staying wide?Whats your thoughts on that,No?

Suppose it's all just prefence and it's probaly a absolute shit idea but as of yet I've not realised yet

Not for me. Dobbie already drops into deeper positions to get on the ball, but hes also pretty effective in and around the box

Fair enough

Good that we are actually able to change formation though,Bench today there was no centre midfielders although not every week will All 3 play but still I'd say that is our priority now if any money is available.

I thought Danny had a good game against Brechin, so maybe deserved to be on from the start, but I wasn't at the game, so I don't know how effective he was when he did come on.

The bench looked strong for the first time this season. A full back, centre half and four good attacking options.

I didnt see the Brechin game but he did make a difference today. I'd say he'd be very unlucky not to start on Tuesday.

Didn't think we looked so bad today despite losing to 10 men. Life goes on. Sad to say that Stephen looked off the pace and I had a sinking feeling when they took Lyle off and left him on. Not often I'd say it but I'd have left Lyle on and taken Dobbie off. For me the whole way the game went gives some credence to those who say we need another creative midfielder. No-one, on a Dobbie off day, looked like unpicking that defence today.

On the bright side, I thought Rankin played well and given we have a youthful defence both Fordyce and Brownlie deserve some credit for their performances. Jacobs continues to be solid too. There's a gap between midfield and the front though that needs filled and I'm not convinced Danny's the man to do it. Guess that's what everyone's been saying.

Have to also say though that when Stirling came on I'd have been expecting him to visibly be doing some reorganising. Makes me wonder.

I'm not going to name names as I won't get involved in a slagging march, but there are a number of posters who just love to criticise everything.  Glad to say there are lots more positive ones. Just can't understand what pleasure the moaners get.

Some people will moan about the fact there is nothing to moan about. There is an ignore feature on here for just those people. Anyway the bad points of the club will always over ride the good points and that goes for anything. There is a lot of positivity around the club with its off field business, financial stability and certain player signings. I'm a relatively happy fan with the club

People moaning about the game yesterday and one guy saying the defeat was "soul destroying;"

Did you guys actually watch the game?

A little disappointing not to take something from the ten men but we were away to everyone's favourites, dominated after the sending off, were denied a penalty and had Kane miss when through on goal. Hardly soul destroying!

I too was shouting for Dobbie to be taken off. I think there comes a point when a player needs to know if they're not cutting it then can be hooked!

Having seen the highlights, Durnan clearly knows Dobbies back issues (spasms?) and knees him right in the lower back for the free kick leading to our goal.

We lost the game to a team who played the whole 2 nd half with 10 men.

Good that some fans can pick  out good things from the defeat but for me we lost the game that is all that matters

This is part of the problem that we have " away to everyone's favourites". It almost sounds as though we can't possibly win there and should be programmed accordingly. Much better to default to the unlucky loser tag.

We get handed a massive opportunity by McMullan's petulance - the advantage that a team has 11 v 10 for fully an hour is HUGE especially after their midweek exertions.

We played very well in second half and it was encouraging to see us attack relentlessly and really go for the win.Even when we play so well we still somehow come away with nothing.

Soul destroying probably not but disappointing and undoubtedly a massive missed opportunity - yes unequivocally.

Bbc live text. Its usually quite accurate. Perhaps a more fitting description would be he was subbed because he is crap

Tapping was moved out wide early in the game to help Rooney deal with the runs of McMullan, it didn't work. When McMullan was red carded Tapping tried to push forward more but he struggled to take on players and get decent balls across. A game where things just didn't happen for him. I would say that was the reason he was hooked.
