    Dens Park

    Looks like we are going to be hurt severely by the decision at the weekend It could go down to the
    wire and got a feeling the 2 points lost will cost us dearly Should be allowed to challenge refs decisions
    if so blatant as that ****s on sat He now looks forward to another pay cheque while we spend rest of season
    looking behind our shoulders

    Of course those two dropped points at Dundee last night could very well end up costing us, just like the two we dropped against Accies late on an the three we dropped at Firhill last night.

    However as bad as the decision for Saturday's penalty was, we need to look at ourselves and not the officials to find the reason we dropped points. In all of those three matches, the common denominator has been us conceding at the death after a shocking performance in the latter stages of the game where we invite the opposition onto us as we defend a single goal lead/0-0 draw on the edge of our own penalty box when our defence couldn't keep pigs out of a close. If you do that then you are asking for trouble and we have been deservedly punished for it. In the case of the Dundee game, they may very well have equalised regardless of the penalty award, such was our inept defending. Indeed, had it not been for Ripley they would have won it at the death.

    Blame a refereeing error all you like, but t

    Exactly we have shipped 2 pts to Hearts at FP, 2 pts to Accies at FP , 2pts to Dundee at Dens and 3 points to Thistle at Firhill all lost in the last couple of mins. That's not bad luck that's 9 points that would virtually have seen us safe all wasted in the last couple of mins in each game due to complete and utter incompetence of players on the park. Let's stop the hard luck stories we are sh1te and getting the rewards our incompetence deserves.

    Hear, Hear.

    There is a reason why teams down the bottom supposedly 'get no luck' and that reason is that good or even competent teams 'make their own luck'. In other words they don't desperately try to close out matches still in the balance by hanging on for dear life defending on their own 18 yard line, they shut down the opposition, pick them off and kill games off at the other end. And guess what? Sometimes that even results in them getting a dodgy penalty thanks to a refereeing mistake!

    re: Dens Park

    Got to agree with all the above. We need to stop defending to deep, especially the last 5 minutes of games. That way we don't run the risk of teams scoring with a deflected shot in the last minute or giving the Referee a decision to make. We should be the side pushing for the deflected shot or giving the Referee a decision to make up the other side of the pitch. Maybe if we can manage that we may not be so "unlucky".

    The worst teams in any league are at the bottom . We are not unlucky we are pi $h. A team full of old men and duds. Where exactly are we getting a win from ? Downward spiral which will lead to relegation and we deserve it. No vision no hope.

    Not arguing about us currenrly being push all I am saying to be called a pish team full of duds and old men and going down IMO is wrong they are underperforming and if they carry on doing that they will go down but imo they gave the ability to survive just need to show it

    Yes we are pish. A fluke result at Celtic doesnt mean we are world beaters. We have a team of guys who are at the tail end of their careers seeing out their time, picking up wages knowing there is no alteenative to them , so they WILL play the next game. I have seen nothing to suggest we are really very good and just unlucky. The truth is difficult to accept for some.
