WATTOO Posted August 24, 2022 Share Posted August 24, 2022 2 hours ago, D'Jaffo said: I don’t think it’s overly shocking tbh. Maybe doesn’t give us credit for how we literally took apart Arbroath but couldn’t put the ball in the net and how utterly dominant we were against Cove. However we’ve still got a lot to prove and we’ve got a piss thin squad at the minute. I’d be worried if we lost one of Dempsey or Murdoch although I think we’ll just have to utilise Hewitt and Smith in that instance. We’ve only got two actual wide players and in todays AP it says that both are carrying slight niggles but hopefully both are fine. If we lost Dipo though then we will struggle massively. For us to continue our good form then we need another striker. Another wide midfielder as well who is slightly different to what we’ve got would also be nice. Don’t think we need an actual number 10 as we’ve got nowhere to put him. We can only judge ourselves against what's put in front of us and I do believe that some of our fans are trying to rate us against Man City or Barcelona at times, when we should be getting a sense of reality and understanding that we're in the second tier of Scottish Football with a bunch of journeymen and limited youngsters in our squad. Of course the opposition are in the same boat and so far we seem to have nothing to fear. It is what it is. Had we been really lucky in any of our games that we've remained unbeaten then I'd understand it, but we haven't, however, whatever happens against Dundee on Friday (who I believe have easily the best squad and will win the league comfortably) I'm happy with our start and confident enough that we'll stay up and even challenge for the play offs. I'd take a draw right now... 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
