  1. A good win when not at our best. 6 clean sheets on the bounce is some effort, even if Sneddon had a couple of dodgy moments near the end today. We looked a lot better when Smith came on and we went one up with two either side of Graham. When Rudden and Graham play together we seem to resort to launching long balls at them, we're much more fluent when attacking with pace through the middle and wings. I thought Bannigan was MotM today but no arguments with Akinola, he's formed a brilliant partnership with the impressive Mayo. All to play for now, big run of games coming up.
  2. Pretty standard stuff, sadly. Played well enough for the majority of the first half without really threatening and then our usual sleepwalk at the start of the second half resulting in two poor goals being lost. Docherty was dreadful today, if he wasn't a McCall favourite then not a chance he would have lasted 90mins. Constantly gave the ball away and looked well off the pace. The defence were poor, I lost count of the amount of times they let a long ball bounce and it was only a matter of time before it led to a chance/goal. To be fair to Shaw, he took his goal extremely well. McKenna is solid enough defensively but doesn't have the pace/guile to offer much goiong forward and Foster looked very much like a guy in the latter stages of his career by the end of the game. Kyle Turner has shown in spells that he is a talented footballer but we won't get the best of him being stuck out wide. Might be an idea to start him behind Rudden in the next game and see if that brings us any joy. It might also stop us launching long balls to Brian Graham. Killie weren't pretty to watch but they had us sussed after about 25 minutes and they rarely looked troubled by any of our attacks. Their big keeper was very commanding, took every cross we played with ease. Tiffoney looked ok and at least tried to beat his man but his dive was laughable, even more so because he'd already gone past the defender.
  3. Tiffoney and Foster seem to have a very good understanding. In the build up to the second goal, Tiffoney pointed down the line to where Foster should put it and he duly obliged with a wonderful pass off his weaker foot. Tiffoney then played a great cut back for Rudden to rifle home. Morton were very poor but our attacking options will be a threat to any team in this devision.
  4. I tried to do mine online but the seat picker for the JHS only showed the very end section at the city end? Can't seem to access any other areas? Think I'll try the phone option...
  5. I assume folk are joking about Mulgrew and not basing it on a throwaway comment by McCall at the end of the radio interview?! Happy with the players retained so far and not too fussed if Gordon and Penrice leave, better players out there.
  6. Always disappointing to lose but not overly surprising with important players missing and Montrose needing to win. It should give McCall an idea of what fringe players aren’t up to it (if he didn’t already know). I think one of the commentary team (I may be wrong) on Thursday night claimed that they wouldn’t be disappointed if we kept every member of the squad for next season. Probably some sentimentality in those thoughts after just witnessing a 5-0 win to clinch the league but in order to be competitive next year then we’ll need to strengthen. One of Lambie’s great strengths was replacing guys who pretty much played every game for him in winning teams as he didn’t think they’d make the step up. The players deserve to enjoy today and the party to follow for their efforts this season. Will be interesting to see our activity over the summer.
  7. Decent enough game, a few players still look a bit short of sharpness. Penrice and O'Ware looked pretty suspect down that left side, very poor positioning from Penrice for the second. Liked the look of Mckenna when he came on, tough in the tackle and carried the ball well. Glass looked useful although not sure he has the pace to play wide. Shea Gordon was pretty anonymous, not sure what he brings to the team with the other options available.
  8. Fair point, I'd forgotten all about Dumbuya.
  9. Stevie Lawless was messed around by Archibald? The same Stevie Lawless that was on record thanking Archibald for standing by him and saving his career after the ban for betting on matches? So Archibald is now to blame for a Premier League player (who probably just had the best season of his career) for not wanting to return to League 1 Thistle?! Lawless ended up playing LWB due to the injures we had at the time and the lack of cover (that is something you can blame Archie for). He played well there and has ironically also started games there for Livi as well. We need to forget the past and move on. Doolan and Erskine were great players for us but neither were up to it in their last spell with us. Sure, we'll be playing at a level below but I think there will be plenty of players out of contract who will be better bets for us.
  10. Do the board contribute financially to the club? Do they have to make some sort of contribution per annum to sit on the board? (outwith taking hospitality tables etc)
  11. Depressing to see how many of or current team are still in contract for next year/two years. It still baffles me the length of contracts handed to some by Caldwell/McCall as reward for what has essentially been 2 years of complete failure in the championship.
  12. I don’t think we’re playing badly but our defence is what will see us relegated this year. I still can’t get my head round why O’Ware is not only captain but has been handed an extension. He is dreadful.
  13. I think any Jags fan still looking at the playoffs are kidding themselves on. Survival this season will be a success (in relative terms). The new players need to get themselves up to speed straight away for us to have any chance. Thankfully it looks as though Brian Graham has and hopefully Rudden will join him. Mackinnon isn’t fit and carrying extra weight but I thought he played the defensive role well last night. His positional sense is very good which helps to make up for his lack of pace. Zanatta was a bit more positive as well. Cole’s decision making last night wasn’t great, needs to get his head up a bit more. Realistically we need to win next week. The longer we wait for our form to turn the more detached we’ll become.
  14. Some of the new signings looked decent, some of them didn’t. I thought after a really poor start we played well and deservedly took the lead. Penalty looked soft but we played poorly after losing the equaliser. Too many players making the wrong decision and just an all round lack of quality from both teams. I hope we can turn this round but I don’t see where a lot of fans get their confidence from. We don’t score enough and can’t keep a clean sheet, if that doesn’t change soon then there is only one outcome. Its sad to see how far we’ve fallen in such a short space of time.
  15. I can't understand the extension for O'Ware. Our defence is woeful and he's played a large part in that. I'd certainly have been waiting until the end of the season at least to see how he performed before dishing out the contract.
