Pars vs Morton #footballforafiver


Recommended Posts

Bizarre to note a few comments about Mickey Stewart being somehow biased in favour of the Pars. When one team has all the ball you kind of expect that team to have more positive comments. Add in that a lot of the Pars players are fairly well known to Premiership watchers, it's no great surprise that the likes of Donaldson, Polwarth, Ambrose etc get a lot of mentions. And Morton were being (rightly) praised for their defending and one of their centre halves got the Man of the Match...

Anyway, as good as we did for spells and as neat and tidy in possession we are, we are still shite. Not brave enough when in the right areas, top rash when in the wrong areas. Pace of play too slow, nobody bar Donaldson who can attack a set piece delivery (although McCann did well for his goal obviously) and the midfield is basically Pybus running about trying to cover everyone else while also starting off moves himself. Thought he did well apart from the one near the end where he gave it away when he was virtually the last man. 

Shouldn't be a surprise that as soon as we upped the tempo and got balls into the box we looked more dangerous but Hughes doesn't seem to like that sort of thing and would rather pass it 8 times when 2 will do so don't expect to see that again from us even though it looks like the best way for us to play.

Seriously? On that showing?

We aren't threatening nearly enough from open play, we simply aren't scoring enough while consistently giving away soft goals, it's a deadly combination that will result in relegation.

I thought that was an entertaining game for the neutral. 
 

Dunfermline should have probably won it but just couldn’t take enough of their chances, that couple with the questionable keeping in the first half may share an insight into their struggles this season.

We made the mistake of sitting on that 1 goal lead. Dunfermline went for it and deserved a point and probably more.  Felt we defended really well at times but to sit in like that was criminal. Happy with a point and f**k you Jack Ross.

10 (ten) points ahead of perennial Greenock losers with two games in hand.

Yet another Championship draw. It's uncanny how many teams have drawn games this season. Just look at the draw column for every team except Killie.

I'm guessing it's because we're all garbage.

Thought the coverage was fair enough. Fairly reflected that Dunfermline put a lot into it and had the big pull of needing a win and that hint of desperation. Morton dug in and mainly held them at arms length till they lost a shite goal.

Thought Dunfermline showed a great attitude but are ultimately shite. Crowd seemed to stick with them pretty well and it looked like a good night at the fitba.

Probably a fair result.

That's the McPherson handicap in play. Sir Douglas has single handedly kept you here for next season.

Not sure that being ten points ahead of a side managed by Gus McPherson for half a season is quite the open top bus occasion you think it is.

Still, good to see your bottom lip has finally stopped trembling after your swording last weekend.

Happy enough with the point in the end up.  Dunfermline at least deserved the draw.

Dunfermline putting that effort into games maybe enough to pull away from bottom spot but it's hard to keep that going. Then a run of games if it's the playoff's with the same effort.

As always it's going to be some battle at the bottom of the league with a few games left.

We've done enough but probably need 1 more win for absolute safety

Oisin McEntee awarded MOTM. That tells you we had a power of defending to do tonight and almost did enough to take all 3 points.

Tbf..... if you're going on possession Dunfermline were due a share of the spoils .

The Pars were noticeably more up for this tonight so if Thistle turn up on Tuesday thinking theyre walking away with 3 points 'nae problemo'...think again.

Dunfermline are fighting for their Championship existence......every game a cup-final. It will be interesting.

Even Arbroath having  a great season have racked up 12 draws to date which has probably hobbled their league title aspirations. They haven't been too much by way of being garbage though.

Glass half full for us.

Dunfermline needed to win this one, Morton seen a draw as safe from 10th and 9 points in front of Dunfermline at the end of the day.

Yes we were too defensive but back three were great. Pity Blues came off as after a great defensive display we lost a poor goal not covering the front post run.

Must win v Partick on Tuesday for Dunfermline me thinks.

MOTM 🙂
