Overall with 5 players short of a full squad the performance against Motherwell was very good. Yes they tired as the game went on but it is still preseason.
A good first half last night and I agree a poor second half.
Its time to save judgement until a full squad is put together and everyone is fit.
 
 

So we're not allowed to comment on performances until this time?

You can do what you like.

I will choose to save my comments until the full squad in place.

Based on the signings so far the fact another 4 are to come in doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll improve any.

Which is fair enough but don't get upset with people commenting on what they've witnessed so far.

So to summarise so far for anyone who cant be arsed reading the last few pages: Kidd should be released, Paton should’nt play because of his poor interview technique , the management team are “clowns” and we are virtually certs for relegation. Jesus wept.

Manager saying previously he hoped for 4 or so more signings. They will all have to be midfielders now cos Kidd, McCarthy and Paton starting will relegate us! I would release Kidd after last night...and I don't think he could complain!

I think McCarthy has looked fine the last two games. I think he's an able replacement for the Jacobs role and he can find a pass as well. The trouble is that Kidd is sitting in front of the back 4 and is probably supposed to be doing the holding role. Given he can't tackle it's bizarre. The solution is getting Kidd out the team and putting McCarthy in front of the back 4.

You’ve been bang on the money with all of your assessments on Lewis Kidd. The fact he couldn’t cement a starting 11 spot in our shambles of a team last season speaks volumes. I thought he was destined for league 2 / lowland league football when he was released. Absolutely baffled a full-time team gave him a chance with the view to play him centre mid. He can’t tackle, is unfit and incredibly slow.

And don’t you get upset when some people think you should save judgement until the squad is complete.

You have posted enough to accept this is all about opinions.

For the record this forum never makes me upset. If I don’t agree with something I try to give my opinion. 

But I never get upset.

I'm not getting upset I just think it's ridiculous to suggest people shouldn't comment on what they've watched so far. Even without a "complete" squad we should have had enough last night to hold on to a 2 goal lead against a poor side from 2 divisions below.

I get it 

I think my comment was more along the lines of people judging that we are going to struggle this season after watching the first two games. We can’t judge that until we have a full squad.

i certainly don’t have an issue with commenting on the games.

my mistake pal

Ok, without projecting ahead to how grim things might look, I don't honestly know that the Motherwell performance can be described as "very good".  It was decent in the first half and poor thereafter.

Last night, the first half was again the better one, but even that was a bit mixed.  The second was simply dreadful.  

It doesn't mean of course that the season ahead must unfold similarly.  Let's be realistic about what we've seen though.

15 years ago this October. Was a packed meeting that led to the Trust being established.

Dobbie scored 14 goals in the first two games last year. We're doomed.

Re-sign. You've disappointed me Stellaboz, I never had you down as one of those people default_sad.png
I would blame auto correct but the simply fact is that I've fucked that up.

I thought Michael Paton's post match interview with Sandra was quite telling. He just came across as someone who couldn't be arsed. He seemed neither happy nor relieved at getting a full time contract. Had this been a new to the club young player then perhaps it was nerves, but not someone who has been around the block a few times. Contrast Paton's interview with Dan Pybus after Saturday's game. He was up for it, enthusiastic, happy to be at the club and excited at the prospect of 'kicking on'. More the attitude I want to see.

Couldn’t agree more awful interview. Sounded like he was doing Queens a favour. Talk about dour.

You want him to be happy and smiling after Tuesday's performance??

Quite agree.  If he'd come on and been all smiley he'd probably have been criticised for looking like he didn't care we got beat.  Quite often people,  not just footballers,  are either good at being interviewed or they're not.
