Why can some people take a positive out of yesterday result . No dobbie down 3-1 pulled it back to 3-3 and in a league match that would be a good away point . Last season we would not have pulled it back with mr negative in charge so I think the future is a little brighter one thing for sure the games have been entertaining this season .

Oops !!!

There are of course some positives as you suggest.

Possibly worth highlighting though that with "Mr Negative" in charge we were 2 goals down to Morton in the first league game of last season and fought back to get a very good away point. 😉

That was under pre- January Naysmith,  for me his attitude/tactics  changed around that time,  it was as if he thought we had enough points on board and could cruise to certain safety,  maybe even 4th to 6th,  with still half a season left.  Having said that we were 2 goals down to Morton that day so he had to be more positive coupled with Morton probably trying to hang on to their lead. It was noticeable in the  post - January collapse under Naysmith,  to my thinking at least,  that the approach to games was more cautious and we generally had to be trailing by a goal or two before the play became more attack minded. That's why I at least considered him negative.

It was a Cup game we had to win we didn't so we are out nothing like a league game .

The squad we have just now will not keep us up made worse with the  loss of Dobbie we MUST somehow find the money this week to let AJ get the players in that he wants if not then we will be off to a poor start something that will be difficult to recover from look at Falkirk last season poor start never recovered from it

Might be coincidence, but after Anderson left in February, we won 2 games and picked up 8 points, and none of them when Naysmith was operating on his own. It is difficult to know whether one had an effect on the other, but the season went down the toilet from around the time that Anderson left.

For first 20 minutes y’day we played some great one and two touch football with our midfield totally dominant. Morton then had a good spell but not one that justified us losing three very cheap goals. Kilday’s penalty concession was madness.We then finished the game positively and certainly deserved the draw.

The back 4 looks decent enough on paper but it is worrying how easy it seems for teams to create chances against us.

Overall though, the match was entertaining and some of our passing and link up play was excellent. I thought Kidd, Paton and Murray were our top players on the day.

Clearly we need reinforcements but minus Dobbie that performance exceeded expectations.

Hopefully 4 more like AJ said. With dobbie out that is a must for me. That bench yesterday was worrying.

Last seasons draw at Morton lead to a 4th/5th place league position going into the New Year.
A January tampering of the squad and a bit of moaning up to that point that the squad was on the light side put pay to what was a small but competitive squad.
At present we don’t even have a small squad. 2 or 3 more and this seasons small squad will be complete.

Erm sort of but also what we wanna see Saturday

I just think as a more attacking wing back then Mercer gets it.

I like a back three as it gives us 3 6ft plus defenders and another 6 footer with Holt.

Although if we every get a keeper who commands his six yard box that would be the biggest bonus of all ......

Hopefully there is more to come from McCrorie been disappointed with him so far he just seems to be easily beaten wonder how many shots he has actually saved and his kicking is not the best hopefully with more games he will get better but as of now he is no better than Martin .
