I have no idea of the abilities of the existing Scottish players at Lincoln.

Well they're probably shite taking into account Lincoln think Robson is worth £200k.

Oh dear. That was poor stuff. We maybe improved marginally with the introduction of Chalmers and Fuchs, but that's me trying really hard to be positive.

We're going to have to get a few players in. Our finances dictate that anyone coming in would need to be cheap, but having watched a bit of lower league football the last few weeks, there's plenty talent out there we could get for not spending very much. 

Sadly and annoyingly, next weekend, what should have been a big joyous occasion, threatens to be a real damp squib and Utd fans quite possibly booing our own team.

The Rangers are absolutely going to destroy that team. 

Like I've never feared a pumping from the old firm but I'm dreading what the score line is gonna be. 

This 3/5 at the back doesn't work with the players getting put on the pitch. 

If he's going to persist with it the back 3 needs to be one that doesn't contain Reynolds. 

If the middle 3 doesn't have 2 central midfielders plus a creative output it's pointless. 

If the wingbacks don't provide the width needed and no service gets to the strikers then it's completely without merit playing that system. 

Even going back to 4231 so there's 3 players behind Shanks to play balls from or drag others out of position so wider players can get in behind but we've no one with that kind of pace atm.

I’ve studiously avoided watching our gaffer talk. Tried to kid myself on that we’re not in this mess.

Just watched his comments on the game. 

😥

I honestly don’t think I’m going to be able to step foot inside Tannadice until this is all over.

The Ashgar era could well be the ruin of our club.

Reactionary nonsense.  Everything points to us being bottom six but you do still have to take into account the fact that we were playing away with 6500 fans cheering them on.  Fuchs looks like the kind of player that takes a few games to get his sharpness back and Shankland is the same.  
 

I don’t think there is much future for Courts but still think we should be ok in the medium term.

Adam Barton could be the manager, bring back 53 year old Lance Key as our new number one, then make Christopher Rabitsch and Emil Lyng co-captains - I’d still be back at Tannadice in a heartbeat such has been the length of time not being able to watch us live.

These post match interviews from Courts - DUTV, BBC and Sky - are the scariest thing about the whole day.

 

He thinks there were lots of positives, we were the better team in the first half and had them ‘hemmed in’ for the last half hour!!!!

 

WTAF???

 

Dleuded or just lying through his teeth?

He said in a q&a with the Fed politburo just last night that he didn't like slating the players or performances in public, but there is a difference between antagonising his playing staff and treating the support with contempt. 

Or maybe he is deluded, given the nonsense spouted about youth and then seeing today's team selection, which was always doomed to failure on the day.

How long before a ‘Tam Courts must go’ thread?

My the end of September we will have played seven league matches.  I think we might only have four points by then.  If we get beat by Dundee at Tannadice he will be under huge pressure.  If we get horsed by Dundee, which is a possibility, I think his position will be untenable.

Sevco could easily match the 8 they put past Accies last season next weekend on today's viewing.

It wouldn't be perfect but if we're keeping that formation I'd rather have Freeman and Spörle in the wing back positions. Smith isn't good enough going forward at this level, Robson isn't much better. When there's so little coming creativity or build up play from the midfield in this formation, especially with today's starting XI, it's killing any attacking ambitions stone dead.

If Edwards and Mulgrew are both playing then we should have Neilson in beside them as he at least has a bit of confidence on the ball. At the very least his first instinct won't always be to punt the ball long.

I also wouldn't have Clark as the 2nd striker up alongside Shankland in this formation. We either need to give Appéré a decent run playing alongside Shanks there or look to sign someone else.

Or we can take the eight (nine, ten…) and hope it opens Ogren’s eyes.

I remember various Arabs thinking similar things when we were wanting Lazlo binned.

What concerns me is that I highly doubt even that'll be enough. I really can't see Courts being gone before New Year. Asghar and Ogren have sunk a lot of their credibility into promoting Courts.

Fair enough. It was a bizarre appointment.  But you have to hope that it's not the disaster that you fear.

We're stuck with Jobby, Scally and Archie - the Three Stooges of Maryhill. You can have them if you want them...
