Pars vs ICT, 17th October

Recommended Posts

Turner is a good ball player but sometimes goes missing, he’s still young don’t want to scapegoat and hope he can get into the team.

Agree about the formation and lineup after O’Hara went off. We definitely looked better and made several chances. Thomas seemed to be our only outlet before that.

I wouldn't blame Turner. He was looking for passes but the link up to the strikers and wingers wasn't there. Too often he had turn back when he was looking to drive forward 

O'Hara looks totally off the pace. Not sure if it's fitness or understanding, but he's contributed little so far.

Still winning games and scoring goals while the two strikers are struggling to form any sort of partnership, if they somehow click then we could be looking at a really decent side.

Imagine getting booked for an over exuberant celebration in an empty stadium 😂

It's time that Robertson lose the Tammy Wynette on Brad Mackay. It's way beyond a joke now.

More like donkey John Robertson AND dud Mackay can gtf! 

Paul Sheerin for the tactical donkey Robertson and anyone for dud Mackay, preferably a youngster that can fucking DEFEND.

It's daft but the ref isn't to blame.

Absolutely wild that John Robertson is getting stuck.

Na, the ref is bound to the rules. Bit of stupidity from McManus.

I think the rule is to protect sponsorship and stop players hiding the sponsor at the moments when they are l most likely to be filmed and photographed rather than anything crowd related.

He's not, from anyone that actually has a rational perspective on the club. The above poster has done this just about every season for every manager we've had in the past 10 years. He usually comes  back recanting and saying he's 'learned his lesson' after we win a couple of games. He's started particularly early this season though; must have been storing up the rage since March.

That and ‘elf n’ safety. And there was that time when a player had to make a blind (literally) tackle with his shirt covering his face. Just come up with a celebration that doesn’t involve getting a needless booking. Pretty partial to a Ross Jack finger, or a Higgie knee slide myself.

I don’t mind any celebration, as long as they don’t dance.

O'haras job was to stretch the defence in behind and give McManus more space in the '10' role. When he went off McManus took up this role with Dow moving into the '10'. Would be interested to see how O'hara does with the better ball player in Dow being in behind him feeding him passes rather than McManus trying flicks and turns down blind alleys too often. I feel he will come good as his movement is very good off the ball, just needs someone to pick him out. 

Still only one game into the league season so let's not judge too early and give the starting eleven a proper chance to gel, friendlies and cup games haven't seen a settled lineup.

You might not have noticed this but we had half our team out injured.  If the club had listened to you every time, we'd have about three new managers a season over the last decade.  We lost one game with a depleted squad and all of a sudden you're back with this 'sack the manager' pish.  Get help, this is an odd obsession.  Seriously.

Imagine wanting to sack one of, if not the, best manager in the league because we lost the opening game of the season against a good Dunfermline team with around 10 players out injured 😂

Robertson is one of the best managers in Scotland.

Hes also a decent guy. Spoke at Norrie McCathie tribute night and when we pumped ICT 5-1 he stood and shook the hands of every player.

Broken rib for Toddy after being leathered in the midriff by the Dunfermline defender. Still mind boggling that Collum didn't think that challenge warranted a free kick.

Yep, it was a booking minimum for the foul, was reckless so potentially a red card.  You know it's not going to be your day when that doesn't go for you.

Still, our 3 main strikers all going off injured within 20 minutes of the first 3 game, pretty sweet.  Can Kai Kennedy play on Saturday or will he still be self isolating?
