What's the script with Liam the goalie? Has he a long term injury?

The new guy I don't think instills the defence with much confidence!

Takes time for a keeper and defence to gel.

Hard job for a keeper to come in especally if team are not doing too well.

Give him a bit of support and a chance to prove himself.

Liam was back last weekend and had a blinder.

Another frustrating result in that we played really well, created a load of chances but losing two goals, including a stupid penalty, in the first 4 mins meant we were up really up against it.

I've no doubt we will climb to safety in the table but the new coaching staff really need to do something about the indiscipline regarding mouthing off constantly to refs. The number of yellows for this is ludicrous and I heard a few Blantyre fans quite astonished with the players' behaviour. 

Anyway, looking forward to the Shettleston game tomorrow, 3 pts for sure!

With my tin hat firmly in place I am going to venture my opinion.

While I can see some difference in the playing style and some decent players have been brought in we are still not getting the results our build up play merits.

Our failure to turn possession into goals is not helping.

But in my humble opinion the main reason is that the defence is extremely suspect with us playing different personnel every time I attend and those players picked then failing to carry out the basic duties of a defender. The goals lost at the weekend just summed up Yoker's problems, not just this season but for the last three or four. Farcical  defending.

I assume that both these areas are being addressed in training but so far it's not paying dividends. Coaching can improve players undoubtedly but we are seeing some guys making the same basic mistakes time and again.

As a supporter its frustrating but for a management team trying to turn this around it must be soul destroying.

I will remain hopeful that we will survive the drop until the maths prove otherwise but it's not looking good at the moment.

I don't think the weather is going to help us in our quest for three points at Lugar this weekend. Fingers crossed the game goes ahead.

I'm sure Lugar will be desperate to play us now given our form at the moment. Because if it's postponed we might have improved by the time it's eventually played! Maybe.

Can anyone in the know say what's to happen re the cover at Holm Park? I had assumed it's coming down but is it to retained and repaired or replaced?

It must be as old at least as that other famous landmark, the Titan crane so maybe it's got a preservation order on it!

The covered stand is being addressed as a priority by HPCFA, the options are to strip back and repair with a slightly different shape or remove and replace altogether.

Thanks for that information. Having attended games recently at McKenna Park in wet weather and over the years at other grounds with no cover it makes you appreciate our covered area. I hope it can be retained but I get that the finance has to be correct.

Well, who saw that result coming? Brilliant performance. The defence were solid and we scored some brilliant counter attacking goals. A pity our next games are against the top two, gonna be tough to string a few results together but today was very promising.

We're running out of games & playing the top two a week apart doesn't help but Saturday's result should boost the team's confidence no end.  The teams round about us all have games in hand on us too.
