When JM was appointed my thoughts were lets just see how he does , i was neither underwhelmed or really pleased at the decision to bring him in. He has brought in some good players this window and the work rate and effort all over the park has improved without a doubt, and also has us playing at a much higher tempo and getting at teams a lot more.
My concern sometimes is that in some games when he seeems to settle for what he has quite early in games, St Mirren at home i felt we could have pushed on a lot more for a winner but he seemed to be quite content with a point,also Hamilton away as well once we got the goal he seemed quite happy to settle for the one instead of going for the killer second goal, to be fair at Hamilton it nearly paid off , but i really thought we could have pushed on and got a second.
He has got us in a position in the table where we now have a chance of finishing in 10 th spot ,it is going to tough to maintain this and i reckon it may go down to the wire, a lot of hard work still to be done ,but you have to credit him with bringing in players who in their performances on the park have given us a bit of hope and belief we can scrape to safety, which under Neil Mc Cann i am sorry to say it was not looking good at all, we were sinking fast and i feel we would have been detatched at the bottom of the division if we has stuck with NM.
To sum up he has recruited well this window and got us organised and working hard and fighting for the jerseys, i am hopeful but not expecting the safety of 10 th spot, a lot of twists and turns to come i suspect.
