It says alot about us, because I've not been impressed with saints (twice), st Mirren, Motherwell or united either yet we've failed to win those games. Prior to Aberdeen the best we've played was Hibs imo and we should've won. The other teams not just shite when we win. 

The level of performance on Saturday was the same as most games this season with the only difference is we took some of the chances. Outside the Celtic and St Johnstone game we arguably derserved in terms of performance and chances more points out of every game than we got.

This is a view I've seen from quite a few fans so far, and from pundits on sportsound. I can't remember us actually threatening opposition goalkeepers much more than 2 or 3 times in any match this season. United away we had three good chances and didn't take any, saints in the cup was the same. Motherwell away, aside from McMullan hitting the bar from 25 yards and Cummings putting it straight at the keeper from 6 yards out we had alot of the ball but did nothing with it, as no one wanted it, so McMullan was constantly coming into the centre circle to take it. The same thing happened at mcdairmid. That doesn't scream a good level of performance in most games this season. 

 

The odd good performance against an equally shite team will mean nothing if we keep losing stupid goals like the one on Saturday. Again, on Marshall's side. Imagine my shock.

St Johnstone were the better team in both games, but they weren't that good, because we made it too easy for them. All three goals in game two coming down our left hand side, where Marshall plays, if I remember correctly 🤔. We were good on Saturday, but that Aberdeen team is terrible. We can win and I can still think there's better, more organised and charismatic coaches out there for us. 

The St Johnstone cup game we were the better team for 70 minutes and missed a frightening amount of guilt edged chances. 
 

The St Johnstone game was a horrendously bad performance with Marshall having an absolute nightmare. Legzdins was as much at fault for the 2nd as Marshall was. 
 

I totally agree with you about there being better, more organised and charismatic coaches out there but the issue I replied to was you saying things haven’t improved since McIntyre which is nonsense. Arguably it worked in our favour to get relegated to get that dab c**t out our club before he fucked up anymore.

Mate the goal came down Kerr’s side but the blame lies with Ashcroft totally fresh airing his clearance then Legzdins not cutting the cross out. 
 

Motherwell away they scored with their only shot at goal. Yenited never had a shot at our goal from inside the 18 yard box the whole 90 minutes with us having 2 shots blocked off the line, Griffiths header going inches wide and the less said about Sheridan’s effort the better. The Rangers game we don’t need to look  much further than the penalty. The Livingston and St Johnstone cup game was us missing chance after chance with McGhee being a major culprit in both plus inspired goalkeeping. The Hibs and St Mirren games were 2 games were we got shockingly poor penalties given against us. Opportunities don’t just come through shots at goal, it could be crosses that players should be getting on the end of or the final ball letting us down both of which we’ve been extremely guilty of so far this season  

My problems with McPake has been his continual use of Gowser and his terrible substitutions, neither happened on Saturday.

I might be reading too much into these quotes from McPake but doesn't sound good about Byrne

"We have to get a clearer picture on the full extent of the injury before we think about anything else.

We have plenty of options in midfield if he is missing for a while.

Shaun is a very important player for us and has been very consistent all year.

And the club will back him whatever happens."

I feel like it's safe to say it'll definitely be a few months until we see the man back in action, unfortunately. Hopefully his recovery goes well and he can get back to his normal life soon enough.

As for the rest of that article, happy to hear that those out for COVID issues are available at Tynecastle, so we should have a better bench to utilise. Gowser might be important considering we'll need to find a makeshift CM trio in the interim, and with 4 CMs available we have options at least.

Yeah having the other guys back is definitely good, not sure we have anyone else that can play Byrne's position though but might be another change of position for McGhee incoming I guess

This was the perfect opportunity for Robertson to try and force his way back into the side.

Unfortunate we can't recall him until January. Not sure any of the others come close to having the same discipline for the role Byrne plays. 

I see the Courier is touting Cammy Kerr for it bizarrely.

Cammy played there before, under Hartley. We went through a phase of attempting everybody there. Konrad was okay. Gadzhalov was the worst fucking thing I've ever seen in a Dundee strip and I'm sure he was hooked after 45mins it was that bad.

Props on responding to your own post.

Don't forget at the height of McPake's madness last season he put Cammy Kerr on in central midfield at Arbroath away. Needless to say it was one of the worst displays i've ever seen. He continually ran away from getting the ball and literally looked like an amateur. 

Thank you

I don't see what the issue is, just have McGhee the sitting midfielder and bring in Anderson to play alongside Adam.

I don't think McGhee is suited to the role. He's a box to box midfielder with great legs. We are needing a sitting midfielder that needs to be the most disciplined player on the park.

He or McGowan are probably the two best shouts though.

Konrad should be signed on again. Cracking undervalued CH IMO.

Gents travelling at the weekend.

An old football buddy of mine was taken well before his time by cancer a couple of weeks back. He was in his 30s and leaves a bereft family and girlfriend behind.

For his sins sadly he was a massive jambo and was well known at the club.

Some of their support are organising a clap for him and the family in the 15th minute on Saturday and I think there might be a bucket thing for Macmillan or similar.

No obligation obviously but if Dees did choose to join in I'm sure that would be appreciated.
