Do Our Players Listen To the Boss?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Don't think so...

Don't give Dobbie any room to get a shot  in...whoosh 1-0!

Don't give The Rangers free kicks on the edge of the box...cue Halliday screamer.

Don't give Livi any set piece opportunities (first game)...cue 4 balls launched into the box, 4-0!

And there are others. 🙁

Fuc##ng listen ffs!

Maybe the managers not telling them any of those things?

Oh, I think he is Weigy. 

I seem to remember him in a couple of pressers and media articles saying all of these things!

If u get the Tele, it's clear as day he said the Dobbie statement in tonight's edition.

In that case, I certainly wouldn't be listening to a guy picking a below par central defender and playing him as a central midfielder. 

If he done that to "make a point to the board" then maybe the players are failing to listen to McIntyre to do the same?

Team selection last night was shocking but you and another poster on here's campaign against the manager on anything he does from day one to present is something else like.

Even more amusing when you're both massive McCann (as a manager) fans.

I'm merely pointing out the inadequacies of the manager. You and many, many others had a field day with the last two so now it's off limits because it's McIntyre? 

That's a tad hypocritical.

Also, that's a fair bit of whataboutery. His selection and formation to utilise it was a helluva lot worse than "shocking". Not for the first time either.

He says in the post match he told the central defenders to mark Dobbie Which to me was a no-no he should have had O'Dea man marking him.

Honestly thought that was what the idea was when I saw O Dea was playing, as well as the other two central defenders, and would be tasked to follow him everywhere and negate him from the game! But no! Very naive! Especially in hindsight.

Does no one in the team (albeit in the deafening cauldron of Dumfries) not shout “man on”?

You cannot shout at today’s footballers they are a sensitive bunch , you need to “encourage” them. Not sure if he has lost the dressing room or if it’s a case that half of them get lost going to the dressing room, still finding their way aboot.

In the two games against Queens the number one aim was surely to starve Dobbie of service and to mark him out of the game. Obviously we failed to do that but were we even trying to do it? It didn't look to me as though we giving any special attention to the top scorer in the country.

Wasn’t at the game but he didn’t need service from his team mates as we provided the godam service!

Our two centre-backs for the night were sent out with the challenge of stopping the country's deadliest finisher and both set him up for a goal on his way to a hat-trick. It would be funny if it wasn't so painful.

From today's Courier:

"The players were warned to make sure there was contact on Dobbie but he’s picked the ball up (at first goal), we let him cut inside and he’s hit a worldie."

What? We shouldn’t expect our center halfs to mark one of the top goal scorers Europe?! Is it just me who thinks that your defence doesn’t need to be told to pick up the opposing strikers and mark them or has the game changed somehow??

Ffs it’s no rocket science, if he moves around then whoever is closest when he picks up the ball gets tight and closes down his options. Wether that be innes, kusunga or a midfielder tracking back

id be surprised if any manager asked a player playing center mid to man mark an opposing striker as it then leaves you short in midfield. Fair enough against a number 10 type player

totally agree WW. It's no good saying what you want, you need to tell them who is supposed to do what and who is supposed to cover if plan A fails. you couldn't make it up, if NM had put out that team he would have been absolutely slaughtered on here, tombola selection, square pegs in round holes you name it the team to play QOS had it all, IMO.

Only plus seems to be that O'Dea got some game time and was back in the central defence with Kusunga, with Kerr and Ralph.Will thatl be the set up for Hamilton?
