I think the big problem with midfield is that Byrne, Ness and Robertson all look best suited to playing the defensive midfield role and we don’t have anyone that’s naturally a right or left midfielder in the mould of Rafferty and Connor (an example for the older posters)  instead we’ve got guys like McDaid and Todd who look more like out and out wingers. 
I think Byrne gets a bit of unmerited stick tbh. 


Can’t get agree on Byrne. Anonymous in every match I’ve seen. Todd is less of an out and out winger than McDaid imo and deserves a starting berth.

He should have been banned from here after the vile abuse I had to put up with, wasn't the first time either, challenging other posters to fight etc, but no, here he is again, trying to be the 'funny boy'. Well suited, because he is an absolute clown of a man.

Couldn't care less about the league cup QF matches tonight, but was happy to see Hearts beat the sheep, given the way in which we lost against them in August having dominated the game

Gave up a last minute equaliser in regular time, and did a United in the PKs. Pretty enjoyable.

Sorry guys. I know it’s still early in the season but I’m now absolutely convinced that McPake is not up to it.  How can he have Nelson, Johnson and Hemmings at his disposal and not work out a system to give them regular chances in front of goal?  It’s not just one or two games this has happened.  Just about every game has been the same.

Just zero tempo, zero movement and very little will to win in that side. Player for player it's probably the strongest we've been since Hartley revamped us, but the performances are utterly horrendous. 

I'd never be in favour of punting McPake this season, but he needs someone to help him fix things on the attacking side. Himself, Mackay and Nicholl are all defenders. Perhaps more worryingly is that those 3 can't seem to sort how soft we are at the back either.

On the plus side, Dorrans will make a difference when fully up to speed, that much was clear for the first 35 minutes or so but we have very, very little creativity to do more than slink into the play-off spots.

Has there ever been a team where the sum of the parts is so much less than the whole?

 

Good players who the manager - and it is is his fault - is making look very ordinary with his inability to neither set up correctly or change tactics with.

 

Zero width, zero creativity, zero urgency.

That bloke Strachan used to be a pretty decent forward in his day.  If only McPake would have a regular chat with him.

Dorrans will make a difference but we only have him for one season, with no chance of his signing on for longer.   

Just to be clear.  I’m not demanding McPake is punted.  There is no point as this will not happen.  I’ve already accepted McPake will be here for the rest of the season and at least half of next season.

ETA: if McPake did get sacked I’ve absolutely no confidence in Nelms appointing the correct replacement!
