I'm just not buying your Helen Lovejoy pish as opposed to defending Griffiths.

My point about him kicking the flare into a crowd of kids was in response to someone talking about whether the police will look into it. I'd imagine they'll at least discuss it because of the situation.

A ban might be good for him, he shouldn't even be at the ground against Rangers.

I've said Saints fans should be punished for bringing it to the ground. I'm also saying Griffiths should be punished for kicking it into the crowd.

Care to tell me where you disagree?

You gave the impression that it was ok because your fan threw it toward an empty area. Pretty obvious I would have thought.

Then you developed your point (much like your point that because a guy is 6ft and has a big head means he's hard) absolutely abysmally.

I've no doubt you've had a good night. Have you been drinking by any chance?

Well not really, as that wasn't my point at all. Both the Saints fan who brought it into the ground, and Griffiths endangered Saints fans, with Griffiths the one purposely putting a live flare into the crowd, but I guess the club you supports means you'll defend Griffiths' actions as much as you possibly can, so this is all a bit pointless.

Aside from his free kick attempt which Clark saved really well, the booting of the flare was the best thing Griffiths did all game tbh.

i feel sorry for the laddie(football wise) we just shell high balls up to him and let him get on with it with no support...he'll score us goal IF we use him correctly...there was an incident in the 2nd half when we had a throw in about the halfway line and he was the only player who looked for the ball on the half way fucking line..i'd be telling him to stay up the park and get 2 wide boys to start fucking throwing decent balls into the box for him to thrive on.

You mean like in my post above where I say he is a tit? That kind of "defending him as much as I can"?

You have out spooned yourself tonight, which - given some of your recent drivel - is remarkable.

I'm just having a real hard time understanding how anyone can defend this? Folk claiming he was just trying to kick if off the park FFS 😂

Don't want McPake sacked because he deserves at least the first round of fixtures after getting us up but here's a rant:

It's absolutely dreadful management to have scored none in 3 games, been beaten by a terrible United team and drawn against Livi side that had 1 point in 4 up until us to think, 'Aye, that's working, just need to give it another wee while. Let's not change anything.'

Absolutely insipid management.

It's horrific management to drop a striker that had been scoring to put a clearly unfit striker in that's not played 90 minutes in 18 month.

It's horrific management to give Fontaine a new deal and think he's a capable first choice for the top flight at 35 (no idea if he was culpable for any goals tonight - think it was Kerr but I mean in general).

Finally, utterly piss poor management to think Cammy Kerr or Christie Elliott is anywhere near good enough at RB for us when they were both miles off it at Championship level.

Furthermore, McPake has tried to say he doesn't play his mates for the sake of it, then why the f**k is an ageing CM being shoehorned in at LW? McGowan makes it work as best he can but he should either be at CM or on the bench.

The 3 man midfield is absolutely brutal at this higher level without Adam but does McPake have a plan B?

Fed up of hard luck stories. 7 games in total without a win, 4 without a goal, Rangers on Saturday and we have a Leigh Griffiths and Jason Cummings strike force that McPake hasn't a clue how to get working.

Dreadful

To be fair, you were our first point actually I'm sure :D We had lost everything up until then, but then again we're kicking into gear now.

McPake has 0 Idea how to change a game during it. It’s embarrassingly obvious

Guy on radio 

"Substitutions and tactical changes win games. Davidson is proactive, MaPake reactive". 

McPake has to take the blame, he come into this season saying this squad was better than the 2014 lot despite it being glaringly obvious that the defence is nowhere near good enough for the Championship.

Shaun Rooney was goading opposition fans before he joined us, sure there's a fairly iconic photo of him

"Iconic" picture of a boy celebrating in front of Ross County fans.

McPake seems to consistently manage to piss off strikers. Danny Johnson was a bit of a dick, but he scored goals, despite being frequently benched because McPake was utterly clueless as to how to set us up. Kane Hemmings was played in a totally unsuitable role, and now Cummings is being frequently benched despite scoring more than anyone else. Mental. 
It's his obsession with playing one up front.

The boo boys seem to be blaming Griffiths when clearly it isn't him that is the issue.

His ball into McGhee was sublime and should have been buried - it's not Griffiths fault that the service to him was non-existent. Swapping Cummings in doesn’t solve the fundamental issue that without Adam our midfield are just not creative.

The person who needs removed from the team isn't Griffiths but McGowan - his constant slowing down and pirouetting is absolutely draining.

Ultimately though it isn't one player but the manager who just doesn't have a fucking clue.

Along with that he seems to have this thing where he must shoehorn Sheridan on for 15 mins, be as well put me on ffs.


Bringing on the big the striker, or in the case of last night your only striker, off the bench for the last 15 minutes is a pretty tried and tested formula, when you’ve gone a goal down, to be fair.

With Adam out we can and should be playing 2 strikers.

McCowan, McGhee, Byrne, McMullen, Sheridan and Griffiths/Cummings - should be the front 6.

Although I’m his biggest critic we miss Mullen’s running, closing down etc.

Thought Cammy was particularly limited last night.

Kerr and Marshall had lots of opportunities to put a cross in but kept turning back - that clearly is an instruction from the manager.

I also wonder about playing both McGhee and Byrne - for me it has to be one or the other - having both in midfield severely limits our creative options.
