A reaistic answer to my question.  To lose a whole team, there HAS to be a really fundamental reason , rather than only playing for the manager, which , if true, is a totally damning admission of the situation in itself.

Some clarity from the Club would help

Conundrum here- is it true he belatedly tried to contact some of last seasons squad?   If the Club knew , why wasnt an experienced Junior manager whose immediate contacts could have steadied the ship appointed? Bobby Crilly for example wasnt everyones cup of tea, but we were a force then, regularly in finals and established in the top league.  Plenty candidates out there.

Larkhall Thistle used to be a " name ".  Tomorrow we play the Glens. Prior to this season, I can recall few , if any, clashes that were not settled by 1 goal margins either way. Now after the fixture we could have possibly lost 16 goals ( or more ) if we go down by another 7.

I am very uneasy,  this downward spiral is way beyond any Larkie experience, am I the only one who think this?  One of the greatest clubs is in ruins.

6 games in and you've got them down to losing the remaining 24 plus next season's 30 and the following season's 30 as well. Any chance of your lottery numbers ?

Did I say they will lose every game you tit? Just said they will be in the bottom league because they are rank rotten

I'm sure Larkhall would not lower themselves to this type of thing.I would think if there was any type of inspection the Glencairn would also attend this.

Nice reply, sounds as though you've just been weaned off a set.

Concentrate on your own team if you've nothing constructive or positive to say about other clubs.

I didn’t say they were doing anything wrong I apologise if it came across that way just heard the rumour that they could be short of players and could ask for a postponement which I am sure the glens would not want to happen

Interesting if belated statement on the Club website tonight. Seems to answer some questions but raises others; what seems clear is a breakdown in relationships between the officials and the playing staff.  Should have been issued at the start of the season.

Just read the statement. Running a club It’s a tougher job than most of us could imagine. The incumbent committee can be criticised for some decisions but not for their commitment to the club. They need help not continual criticism, I’ve visited Gasworks Park on numerous occasions and never seen a victory for the team I’ve supported but I’ve always enjoyed my visits. I hope they get through this malaise as 140 years of history can’t be lost.

The club website  clearly states dissatisfaction with the effort shown by the previous squad in the last game of last season ,  following issues.  Really sad it came to that, clearly a massive breakdown- to lose a whole playing staff and management.

Now see players having a pop back.

Sad.  Hardly likely to help enticing new players to the club

No doubt by the time they play us they will have strengthened their squad 

it’s just the luck of the draw with how fixtures pan out but good to see them improving
