Partick Thistle Go Ballistic. Caley are Atrocious

Recommended Posts

The keeper is one of the most important positions on the park and our 2 are very poor. These mistakes could cost us a few places in the league by the end of the season.

When you think of the keepers we have had over the years,  we now don't really have a no.1 ..I said weeks back that it was a position we needed to improve on....

A big wake up call after the “Euphoria” of the Morton game…we’re just not good enough to win this league with defending/goal keeping like this and wastefulness in front of goal .

Neither keeper seems overly confident or decisive.  Putting them in a competition where one mistake means you aren’t starting the next game won’t help that.  Experience needed.

Do we have any loans left at all? Sneddon is a ******* disaster

 

I had no idea why Sneddon got a new deal, though sadly stone doesn’t seem much better.

I get the impression there’s some who think Sneddon who can do no wrong- and I would have to ask has he really improved for someone who has been here for over 4 years

Well we are the team to watch if you want goals - 5 matches in the league and 19 goals. I do recall speaking to some gentleman at the QoS game and we agreed that we look like a team which will score goals but concede as well.

Anyway, at least we know we will be scoring 3 against Killie next week!

Oh god. We’re doomed.

The earlier these threads start the worse the result. Only hope now is if everyone is pessimistic about our chances.

Told you so.

Had chances to score a second before they equalised. Need to be a bit more ruthless at times (which is weird thing to say considering the number of goals we have scored this season). 

Missing the composure that Bell and Brownlie bring. Hopefully Hendrie can push Foster as I think he's had it too easy in that position. 

Big issue is the keeper. I'm annoyed at McCall even thinking that two young inexperienced keepers was the way to go. Especially since the GK is supposed to instil confidence in the back line. When Halliwell was flapping about, McCall was quick enough to bring in Fox. He really needs to look again as we could easily drop 15pts this season just on mistakes.

Nuff said about the keeper. Ok he's supposed to instill confidence in his defence but the captain is supposed to inspire the whole team. Docherty was woeful today. Bullied off the ball, misplaced passes. Inspired panic.

I have always thought Sneddon has been capable to the odd wonder save but sadly is not cutting the mustard over the rest of his game.  Whom is out there signing wise?  The Cammy Bells?  No ta.

We've not had a decent keeper since Czerny.

You can't say that about McCall's blue eyed boy!

I was also surprised Sneddon got a new deal, even though he did well enough in the last 9 games he played in last season. I thought we would have signed a more experienced keeper to challenge him this season, not a younger inexperienced one. I feel we have good enough cover in most other positions in the team to get into the top 4. Keeper is the one concern for me.

McCall needs to give one of them a run more than a game at a time, both keepers must be terrified of a mistake and immediately losing their place which won’t help confidence
