Any of Howie's 40,000 work colleagues know where he is?

Haven't a clue, he's probably working from home now 🤔

McMillan, Lithgow, McGowan, McCusker and Strachan were the only ones up to that level. The rest of the squad was filled with crap from the juniors. We beat Queens Park at Hampden in the August then didn't win again until February.

There was big changes to the team once Duffy took over.

John Sweeney, Willie Sawyers, Kevin Findlayson, could argue on paper John Stewart should have Done a job in that league

Willie Sawyers was fucking brutal. He's a Sunday league player at best.

That's easy to say now we have Goodwillie up front. Sawyers was far from our worst in that era IMO. Quite decent going getting double figures goal tally in that horrific side we had under Bomber in 09/10.

Far from our worst but still absolutely honking.

These are all the players we list as midfielders on our website and being quite frank, not a single one of them appears to be league one standard.

That's only, possibly harsh on Henderson (who is apparently talented) and Palmer (who got injured instantly).

We're pinning our hopes on Cuddihy, a guy who was our 4th best central midfielder last season. Absolutely pathetic.

Seeing that actually makes it glaringly obvious how weak we are in the middle of the park.

Alot of improvement needed between now and the Montrose game. I cannot face going back down into League 2 again.

The last 3 performances have been reminiscent of performances we put on under the likes of Chapman and the likes. Utterly embarrassing stuff.

There hasnt been a single positive to take in the games after beating the scum. The highlight in each game has been the final whistle.
I understand Lennon has barely a budget to work with but the recruitment has been abysmal. Goodwillie is isolated up front.
Norway does a fair bit of running but that's it.
Midfield is non existent and the defence is a shambles.

Particularly honking has been Mcniff and Johnston but tbh most of the players are hiding and need to step up or we will be struggling to stay out the pyramid playoff next season at this rate.

3 games, 8 conceded without reply or much attempt on fucking goal

Danny keeps blaming the defence but it’s deflecting from the real problem, IT’S THE MIDFIELD!!! I thought that Cuddihy would be able to step up and control the midfield but I was wrong . Some thought that Grant, Mcstay and Rankin leaving wasn’t that big of an issue but it’s HUGE . The defence have no confidence in the midfield to help them out so they are making basic mistakes, mistakes that happen when you have no confidence. The transfer window can’t come quick enough...

Looking at that is scary and very worrying.

People keep going on about how other felt it wasnt an issue losing Grant, McStay and Rankin.

Genuinely dont remember reading that on here from anyone other than the odd one or two (myself included) that felt McStay could be replaced reasonably easily.

Really isn't a lot of options.

Move Syvertsen into central midfield? Or try Howie in midfield again.

At most we should only be playing one of the young inexperienced players. Henderson looks the best of the bunch.

Our midfield will be a lot better with Palmer and Cunningham in there. It may still be a huge problem, but it will be better than Tuesday/today. From what I saw of Palmer last season he can pass through midfield similar to Grant. Cuddihy just can't do it. 

Despite feeling a back three might suit Shiels and possibly get Syvertsen up with Goodwillie, the team selection today was bonkers. Up against the most attacking LB in the league and we play Johnston (lazy) and Rumsby (terrified to leave the penalty area) in support of Bain. A limited midfield pair (I actually thought Robertson battled away okay in patches) who were hopelessly outnumbered by Airdrie's three and Robert drifting in. That meant we couldn't push up the pitch and win the ball high.

We need to bin the idea of playing wingers and get an energetic quartet who can press and counter at pace. We absolutely need to stop teams higher up the pitch. I fear we still lack a bit of strength in there though.

Where is Howie? I think when fit we need to get him in alongside Lang. McNiff is back to punting it long. Perhaps a by-product of losing Grant.
