Maybe Motherwell struggled to gel in their first game. 😉

So panicking won't achieve much good, but optimism might actually.

I'm intrigued by this bit.  How might optimism achieve some good?

If I thought it could help, I'd give it a try.

What has Motherwell winning 4 nil  against Morton got your do with us.

We should just worry about our own results and trying to get 4 quality signing in if not we are in for a very poor season  this season already reminds me of the Gus season players signing for Queens who can't get a deal anywhere else

It’s almost as if you played Motherwell with home advantage rather than at Fir Park, where you’d have got a similar bleaching if not worse.

My partner is a singer. It's not the same as football but both are performance professions. When she gets bad reviews, or her directors are negative, or a crowd is unwelcoming, she has to actively make sure that doesn't affect her performance. Naturally, that is a part of the job, and she is fine almost all of the time, but she and our squad are all humans and capable of being affected by these things. When it has been rough for her and no-one has said anything too critical and she gets space to grow, she always turns it around. When she gets good reviews, it makes her glow and her singing even better! Bit of a random thing to say on a football forum, and she is probably at a higher level than Queens in their respective disciplines, but I think the principle is the same. Gotta trust people a little bit to get it right and then offer praise when it's due. The likes of Mercer, Murray and Dobbie (first time) have all stuck in an improved in their time with us, and the likes of Pybus and McRorie (sp) have said they want to do that.

Don't think so it took Motherwell till the 70thmin to get first goal, A penalty that should never have been given then 2 last min goals as Queens went for an equaliser... Time will tell tho.

I can understand players’ performances being affected by crowd reactions. But that isn’t the point. We are talking about the views on here. First of all, if I was player, the last thing I would do is go on fans’ forums looking for reviews, especially after a shit performance. And, if I did read them, it would be in the knowledge that fans generally don’t know what they are talking about. And if a player does read this stuff and let the views of about half a dozen people affect them, they are in the wrong job. Add to that, if fans are being relentlessly positive when performances don’t merit it, players will know it is horseshit same as everybody else reading it. I ‘d rather people posted honest views than made stuff up just in case a player is daft enough to read it, or even more daft to take any notice of it.

In any case, do you seriously think that had the few folk who post on here been more positive last season, we would have finished higher up the league? I mean, really?

Connor Murray my Man of the Match today.
 

By a distance. That 4 goals in 12 minutes was almost surreal.....

Paton, Kidd and Oliver were all OK today, although we will have tougher opponents ahead. Nevertheless, a morale-boosting win always welcome.

Murray is certainly taking his chance. He was my motm on Tuesday by some distance as well.

Good to see good use of subs today. Easy to do when 4-1 up but would we have put younger players on at same stage last season?

Appreciate you have your views but I don't think they are grounded in reality. As for the bit in bold: no, but that's about performances across a whole season not two games, and my comments don't just apply to this forum.
