Double sub in stoppage time ūüėā

These two have not got a clue btw. If we win this league it's Thistle being a basket case and the rest of the league having about 50 quid between them.

Spot on! I was believing we were better than last season, but we're not. If we get promoted we need new Managers in, M&M don't have a clue.

A dreadful quality game. Saw some people say both teams would miss big chances and it would end in a poor 0-0. They were right.

It's ok saying we need to sign a striker but they've already signed 3 that have done nothing so far so I wouldn't have any confidence in them signing a decent one in January.

Chucking another striker in the mix won’t make a blind bit of difference. The style of play is utterly horrendous and we’re not even creating opportunities. Midfield needs sorted first imo. Along with the style of play.

 

It's the same kind of one paced midfield that was the issue last season. A year on and nothing has changed. Sticking Morrison up front just exacerbated the issue today. Whoever's idea that was needs a kick in the stains.

Gutless and embarrassing performance. Playing against 10 men for half an hour and created absolutely f**k all and barely even deserved a point. Fucking hopeless.

I’d give pass marks to Paul Dixon and that’s it. The rest not even close to being good enough. Another game where the managers have shat the bed and fucked it.

The conditions were awful but when you have the rolls Royce in Gomis and Dixon coping, it shows the standard of the rest.

Asking Sammon to hold the ball up is like asking Durnan to go mistake free.

The 90 min double sub is in the picture dictionary under useless, next to last week's double striker swap.

We missed a glorious chance to go further ahead and put Thistle in a further slide, poor show today from the management team.

That is now 9 fixtures against full-time opposition in League One since we got relegated, and we haven't won even one of them. 6 of those have been under M&M.

I'd almost have taken a point before the game given Thistle needed the 3 points more than us but the way we utterly failed to make the man advantage count was shameful. We desperately need a striker in the door next month.

When can you pick him up?

Just be careful he is very fragile...

I didn't even know it was possible to get a straight red for dissent. That must have be some impressive use of swear words

The approach today wasn't really a surprise, merely a repeat of the game at Starks Park in March when they went there frightened to death of a bang average Raith Rovers and a draw was celebrated like we had just trucked away the Champions League. Difference then was that Miller brought himself on late on to give us some sort of viable hold-up play for their appalling hoof ball and in McManus we had an in-form striker capable of scoring from even the meagre chances he was given. This season, middle to front, if Morrison isn't on it, we have precious little to offer, make that nothing. Sammon, on one goal, is probably the least bad of the currently available strikers. Says it all. Million miles away from being good enough. We need so much better.

In any sort of non pro football swearing at the ref in the main ends in a red card. Pro players get away with murder and refs let them away with far too much.

Cove are pish . They may get 4th.  Having seen all the sides thistle and Airdrie should be up there. Rest haven't been up to much.

It actually looked like he was saying something not very pleasant to a teammate to me. Be interesting to see it again....

If so I'd think rudden would've made more of it surely.

Depends what he said. The fact that there was little protest by most of the Thistle players might imply that it wasn’t acceptable.....

Oh. My. God.  Just awful.  

Dixon & Gomis by a clear margin, then Mutch, maybe Hall, otherwise did anyone else deserve their place today? Todd, Miller, Mercer all woeful.  Sammon all too easily in the Centre-half's back pocket.  Again.  Alston is a real worry 'cause he just looks shit now, and Morrison's form has fallen off a cliff.  We've looked toothless, clueless and sub-standard in the last two games.  Could be out there playing right now and still wouldn't score  create a chance.

It would need to border on racism to get yourself sent off for giving it to a team mate. Just can't see it.
