  1. Gents Our Skill set in predictions is to be chuckled at, Charlie Adam to Blackpool !!!!!, feck, unless they moved it on the map to Reading, we didnae get that yin right, along with quite a few others, glad to see we have the jobs that we do, Pogba to Dundee, with Neymar the following week.
  2. Cobra, There are lots of unanswered questions about the Miller Saga, Why didnt he play more often under McIntre when we were on our knees, Did he apply for the Vacant Managers Position, Was he a positive or negative influence in the dressing room and finally why was the club not difficult to deal with in letting him go, stating that it was him to wanted to leave which would suggest any payment would have been at the lower end of the scale. Sounds as if the parting of ways for both sides was the right way to go on this one.
  3. Just a guess but it could be that other clubs have come in and are offering more money, so he's trying to squeeze more out of us.  Possibly an-dee, I never thought of it like this Gents The other way to look at this, if he is talking to Dundee even though he trying to squeeze a little bit more, it suggests that at least is considering the option and not binned it, I appreciate the comments above in relation to the thoughts of being held to ransom, however if it happens and he starts producing the goods, we will all be talking about how much better he is than Wan*land at the Dabs and worth every penny, yes it could also go the other way. Lets be patient.

    Rev IMO, he now has better protection in front of him in terms of better Midfield and Defence, he is not being battered on a constant basis due to our woeful season last year and his confidence has begun to rise, I would like to hope that this situation will only get better as we gel as a team.

    Five Players Required.

    Rev, as the old saying goes "Opions are like Ar*eholes, we have all got one" . 3 of us could read a post and have 3 totally different interpretations of what has been written. We all have one thing in common "Passion" about oor Fitba Club. It is early days, we have suffered 3 previous significant influx of players that did not work, there appears to be a patient approach to what we are doing, a huge coup in getting Gordon Strachan over the line, a great selling point to attracting players. What is to say that the Club have discussed with May understanding that other offers may be there and have said that we need an answer Mon / Tues next week, his next move is critical to his career after what is regarded as a failed transfer to Aberdeen having been told he can go with 2 years left on his contract. We are an impatient bunch, reeling from the misery of the last 2+ seasons whith an expectation of fixing it over the summer ready to Pummel Dunfermline on Day 1, its good that we a week until ICT Game providing the opportunity for the team to get together, recover from the knocks and who knows bed in a few new additions. I am offshore and wasn't at the game yesterday so forgive me if i am off the mark with this one, We had a 16 year old lad who played out his skin, stuck out like a sore thumb in terms of his performance and he has gone home with the sound of boos ringing in his ears, i appreciate if he wants to play with the big boys he will need to grow up quick, however we are also bedding in a number of new players who had their first home game yesterday, not a great start, but not the end of the world either. Lets get behind them and give them the support and noise to encourage them to drive forward and play our bit to build Fortress Dens.

    Gents, i sat in the main stand at the Cove Rangers game in a seat that was one back and one to the side of Jim McInally who was taking big notes and photographs of how we set up at Corners and Free kicks. He left Balmoral Park with a very simple game plan, Stop Gowser, Work Hard, Shut them Down, hit them on the counter, Isolate Nelson. We could and should have started with Curran alongside Nelson he works hard to create space for Nelson, we didnt and we gave Peterhead the confidence to go forward, because we lacked firepower, we were probably fortunate that McAlister went off as he has had a habit of scoring against us. Its behind us, another lesson in what formation doesn't work against certain sides.

    WS, i guess you could be right there, Stats for St Mirren show they had 22 attempts on goal against East Kilbride and still lost on Penalties, glad to say we didnt get Goodwin.
  8. We should be playing 3-4-3 against lower league side's, defending higher up the park and stretching them across the park to create the space eto play in.

    Gents Our first League cup outing last year was a 4-0 win at Stirling and it went downhill from there, ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM. 4 Games on the trot and we haven't conceded a goal, Defence and Midfield look solid, vast improvement on last season, goal scoring woes are still to be fixed, 2 games against lower league opposition who have worked their socks off and we haven't found the net in open play, clear clear message to the Management Team, we have improved 2 of 3 problems areas, if we don't fix the 3rd we will not be in contention at the top. Still time to fix, lets keep the faith. Bring on the Caley.

    B C G, I see these games as free lessons & opportunities for the management team to see the holes that need to be filled, we cannot win the league in the first month and if we are playing the patient waiting game to get the right quality in then it will allow us to finish the season stronger, our signings so far surpass anything that McCann did and they may need time to gel as a unit, we know Ness was clattered during the week and Todd looked to be carrying a knock to the end of the game, would rather they were rested and ready for Dunfermline than risk them in the game today. Would expect us to be stronger in the 2nd half and if we win 1-0 its 3 points. in a weeks time the only people who will still be talking about how we played will be us.

    Lack of Commitment on McPake's behalf I would say , going by the feedback sounds like half the fecking players must be sitting in the dugout, I am sure the interview said I will only get involved if McPake asks me, well I fecking hope Wee Ginger is on the phone to provide gentle encouragement to the team for the second half.

    bjs, i going to stick my neck out and suggest that Nelson will be well marked today, leave space for Curran to double his Dundee account today.
  14. 8utters, point we’ll made, look at the comments of Byrne from the press yesterday, happy to leave Livvie drop down a league and join a massive club and the playing at Dens today in front of a decent crowd will support this. That is the type of player / commitment we need.
