Poor performance against Petershill.  We should have had enough to beat them.  To be fair we never looked like losing but never looked liked winning either.  A golden chance to win it with the penalty but it was taken poorly by McKay. Credit to the keeper for going the right way and he had a good game for Peasy.  Missing a few of our influential players but it was still a missed opportunity to take 3 points.  Petershill were well organised but we have beaten a few better teams already this season.

Agree with most of what you said apart from we never looked like losing. Other than the penalty Peasy had the better chances. Only a couple of good saves from Craig Gordon prevented them from scoring. It was a very poor performance and yet again we played hoof the ball up the park. Peasy had a centre forward at centre back in the second half and yet we continued punting the ball forward. We created very little in the second half and not much more in the first. A draw was a fair result on the balance of play imo but we were very poor.

I know we have a lot of players out just now but the changes that were made were baffling. What we were doing wasn’t working. Why not make changes tactically. We took McKay off and brought on Slick and punted the ball at him. Why?? The only player who got pass marks were Rossco, Tam & Craig Gordon, other than that it is was embarrassing. It was like watching us last season at times. Kindlan did ok on debut as well but looked a but unfit and hopefully he can get there.

I must have had too much to drink. I honestly can't remember too many chances for Peasy. I thought their keeper had a few good saves.  I thought the boy Kindlan looked all over the place. Possibly trying too hard to impress.  Agree with you on who our top players were.  The punting of the ball is quite baffling. I was beside our dugout and the management team were screaming for them to get the ball on the deck. Totally ignored.

 We are definitely a Jekyll and Hyde outfit.  Its a real pity we don't have anyone filming our games and the manager could show them the difference in our performance when we actually play as we can.

Totally agree. Glad to hear the management encouraging and demanding they play the ball on the deck. If we are to go up we need to rid ourselves of our inconsistency as the better team (of which we have only played one so far) will beat us.
