Went for Dales, thought he put in a hell of a shift before he went off but hard to call, loads of guys gave their all today.

Same. I really like him. He's not perfect but he works so hard and just seems to keep going.

We haven't seen O'Sullivan yet but the character of signing McIntyre has made has been class in how they've conducted themselves.

Its been amazing how much we've changed in January,  we're a totally different team (thankfully) but its a bit nuts and we really should be grateful to FPS for making it happen. I just hope we 'stick' this time and we can get more than a couple seasons out of a manager and his ethos. Its all down to results and big decisions and while I'm not knocking FPS for how they've done things, quite the reverse, they've backed 'their man' to the hilt,  hopefully they've got the guy who will give us stability. I must admit I'm loving what he's been doing so far.

R McGowan deserves a mention, the guy has been a rock at the back since he has joined us.

Ralph by a mile!!!!  Nearly flogged a goal in the first minute but excellent thereafter.

For me he was like a younger O'Dea (I know he's not THAT much younger), he seems to have the calm head and influence at the back with a bit more athleticism.He's worked well so far I think.

He also seems to read the game so well and nothing phases him. I would like to see what Davies would be like beside him. I like the General but he is prone to making like mistake which have gone on to cost us.

The general lost his man near the end of the game, luckily Dieng was able to make the (double) save right at the end and save his blushes.

Seems to get better each game he plays.  Turned out to be a quality signing when he got fit.

MOTM.  Hard to choose.  Great performances all over the park.

An assist and the best free kick we have scored in a long time which wins the match- you lot are soooooo alternative!

Ralph was excellent, R McGowan was solid, organised and read the game excellently. Nelson is a live wire and Wright was tremendous for both goals (if a bit anonymous in between).

However, with a few key saves, great handing from crosses, reading the game when he had to come further out (and not letting the Hamilton goal play on his mind), I went for Dieng. Another big performance from the guy.

In essence this was one about the team and the attitude though.

Went for Wright due to the goals.

I really like the look of the lad Horsfield. Nothing fancy about him, but looks like the sort of player who could excel in Scottish football. Hard to pick a MOM for me today but he just sneaked it IMO.

For the delight & relief of seeing that superb goal, I went for the obvious candidate...Scott Wright (But all deserved a mention)...Well Done:chaplin:

Ralph for me. Tackling first class and work rate great.

all good though but this young lad has grown into this team and is a permanent fixture.

This topic shows how much we have improved. In so many matches this season its been a case of picking the least disappointing performance as MOM,  now we have a plethora to chose from. 

Long way to go but plenty of positive signs.

He looks so assured on the ball and is technically streets ahead of where Cammy is I’m afraid. He doesn’t seem to have the pace or maybe engine to get up and down as much but very rarely gives the ball away and is linking up well with dales. 

It’s a real shame we have so many loan players as there are quite a few I’d love to see here permenantly, including Dieng, McGowan, Horsfield dales and Wright. Hopefully (if they keep performing the way they do) we can snatch one or 2 at least come the summer

ETA Ralph is the real deal

Agree with all the comments about MacGowan, Ralph, Horsfield,  and the keeper. I picked Wright for the goal, but could have been any of three. The team are just much more direct now, and less fancy. The ball gets forward quicker which makes a hell of a difference.  They are also bigger and stronger.   Nelson is a real gem. We have plenty scope for width. McIntyre deserves the ticket longer time. His philosophy is more realistic. With FPS backing he could get us higher up the league if we can stay in it this year. FPS deserve credit for giving him the  opportunity to rid the side of the obvious problem players.  It is still going to be very difficult and the positions could change week to week.  We no longer are just an easy-beat side.

Agree with all above Dblair ....

If JM  & his players can continue this steady progress I'd like to think DFC/JN will give JM all the backing they can to sign up these "on-loan" players:chaplin:
