Self isolating.

 

 

 

At least we won’t have that problem with Vajs, doesn’t look like he could catch anything, no matter how hard he tries.

McGee was our sub goalie yesterday. Didn’t see who the trialist was unfortunately.

Probably fortunately rather than unfortunately if he couldn't even get on the park ahead of some of the rabble that were.

Because he's popular mostly.

It was pretty slim pickings for 3rd spot to be fair. I went for Shiels as he kept Morrison quiet and didnt do much wrong, but that generally doesn't draw you many plaudits.

As I said slim pickings. But someone who didn’t cause a goal , miss a sitter and waste possession with nice looking but aimless punts. So , Cuddihy cost two goals , Rumbsby and Lang cost the third , so apart from dgw and Norway , I would actually go with Josh Jack who looked fine when he came on.

The 2nd & 3rd goals on Saturday were obviously poor defensively from set piece corners, although the 2nd wasn't helped by the keeper starting to come for it, then stopping and going back.  The first goal is more in line with what I've seen in other games & maybe a little bit down to inexperience.  The midfielders need to be shown that when out of possession their main task is to mark their opposite number.  They sometimes get drawn towards the ball too easily which leaves loads of space for the opposition, it was happening against Montrose & a few others.  The Falkirk lad took it well but should never have had that amount of room.  It's just basic, nothing really to do with tactics, just a little bit of coaching likely make a big difference.

Personally I still think we'll be OK.  We've goals in the team, usually the defence is pretty reliable, decent enough on the ball.  But they need to tighten up the marking in midfield as it's making it a bit too easy for the opposition to play through at times.  Pick up your man, problem solved

Makes you wonder if it's so simple why are they not doing it. Why are the management team not instructing them to?

 

I suspect our defensive/midfield troubles maybe run deeper than that. Basically a lack of midfielder talent for this level.

I was kinda distracted while I watched us v Falkirk on Saturday and the 3 0 was not much more then we deserved, I thought.

However on watching the highlights, I know they're our highlights and they might not be an accurate reflection but I think on another day we could have taken or nicked something.

All of the goals were gifts. Falkirk are decent but didn't work us too hard for any of them. The 2nd choice keeper literally did not make a save!  We could have had 1 or even 2 penalties.  DGW was unlucky with the offside. Good chance fell to Lang who is not a natural finisher. Telford made an unbelievable goal line clearance. Jack could have scored 1 of his 2 chances at the end.  Norway looks more like a player each week.

We're not going to win this league but comfortable mid table should not be impossible.

Merry Christmas and I'll go back on the sherry.

£150k grant from the Scottish government. I wonder if that gives enough financial security for the club
Where are you seeing this? I didn't think anything had been decided yet.

Cheers, that's a hell of a difference between the Championship and League 1.

Surely £150k would be enough to close out any deficit on our budget this season.

The idea that this is distributed by league is absolutely ludicrous. It's not prize money.

I see absolutely no reason why the likes of Arbroath and Alloa are entitled to £350k more than Falkirk and Thistle.

Hmm who is the key player recently injured then?

So, where did you get that info?

Any idea who?

Mitchell, Goodie, & possibly Norway or Lang, are those whom I would consider "key" .
