Thread: “They just think we should be winning 6-0“

  1. #1

    “They just think we should be winning 6-0“

    “They just think we should be winning 6-0“

    The latest brain fart from McKinnon.

    https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/spor...-pressure/amp/

    I don’t know any fan expecting us to win 6-0.

    I’ll take 1-0 against part timers like Dumbarton with a modicum of entertainment value.

    Pull your head out your arse Ray.

    You need to earn the right to condescend to the fans first. So far you’ve earned **** all.

    Jim McLean fined the players for not entertaining the fans enough in the second half of a game we won 4-1.

    He certainly didn’t turn around in The Courier after the game and make comments about fans having unrealistic expectations following an embarrassing draw against a team that has a fraction of our budget and doesn’t have the top facilities that we have at their disposal

    Everyone else in the wrong for Ray.

    So far proving unable to accept responsibility as the gaffer amongst his other apparent shortcomings.

    "We said that last year and people bought into it but they are not buying into it this year"

    Knew it was gonna be hard last year and know its gonna be hard again this season. But i need to see the team on the park putting in the effort that leads to good football and feeling i am leaving having been entertained!

    Well now we've established it's the fans fault, we can adjust our expectations.

    What utter sh1te the man blethers, these are simply the excuses he's choosing to make for his own shortcomings, these are the exact same soundbites you used to get out of McNamara.

    Raymond reminds me of McNamara more and more each day. The same sh1te tactics week in week out, which everyone in the ground bar the manager, can see isn't working, with the same lack of plan B/outright refusal to change when it's clear we've been figured out. The same, promises, excuses and cliches that get thrown out after every setback, and the same rumblings of discontent coming from St. Andrews.

    Some might be happy to give Ray until Christmas, but we've all seen this little scenario before, and we all know how it ends.

    absolute nonsense. dumbarton outplayed us first half and its insulting to say that they came to sit in. second half they defended a lot but their first half performance gave them the opportunity to do that. not as if they were holding on for a point. pathetic excuse

    A man that's clearly on the ropes. Another gutless clueless performance at the weekend should do it. Ta ta Ray.

    Getting seriously worried after reading this pish , don't expect to beat anyone 6-0 , do expect , however , to beat a part time side at home , don't expect to see us struggle to beat Brechin , do expect to see us put teams under pressure at Tannadice

    I DO expect to see us trying to beat everyone 6,7,8, nil. If your not trying to get it in the other net you will lose. Its simple.

    If the coaching set up is to dilly dally around to play for 1-0 then he can feck right off and bring in a positive coach.

    “I am not here to make excuses"

    That should have been the first line of the article, and would have saved us reading the rest of his tripe.
    Ray, times almost up.

    So when we get comfortably horsed by Falkirk on Saturday- a team with 2 points and have not been "bang at it" what will his reasoning be then? The plastic pitch? Houston's bald head shining into the players eyes off the sun?
    Tedious spin. Put up or shut up.

    He proved to me last season in the 3-0 pumping at Falkirk that his time was up and I'm still waiting for him to prove me wrong.New season same ****e,if only he'd admit he's out his depth.He would get more respect if he was honest but I suppose he can still fool some of our support.

    TBF the Houston baldie excuse would be a classic

    McNamara must be good at his excuses though - see how much damage York City let him do. They are spinning into oblivion. National league north when before they were enjoying league football

    That interview is shocking. You hear about players bringing the game into disrepute, well I would say our manager has done it here. If he ain't going to be sacked he should be put on gardening leave.

    If he was on gardening leave who would you trust to pick the team until new manager was in.

    Well it wouldn't be Ellis, Garden, Bowman or Flood. I would like to see what Brian Grant could do with this squad of players. Couldn't be much worse than whats going on currently.

    That interview is a complete slap in the face to our fans who've backed this club magnificently in the face of scandalous leadership and terrible managers/teams.

    I absolutely expect the team who are allegedly title favourites to be looking to beat part time teams 4/6 nil at Tannadice, different story obviously against full time outfits.

    McKinnon is making an absolute c unt of things on the pitch and every time he opens his mouth he's digging himself a bigger hole.

    Talk is cheap Raymond lets see some good attacking football for once

    I think it's a reasonable interview and hits all the issues raised by folk concerned by his tenure so far. He's come out fighting which is good to see and I think he's right to point out we have a lot of new players. Anyone who thinks a team can be built in twelve games is totally deluding themselves and has no idea.

    I don't expect to win any game 6-0.., I always expect the opposition to score at some point.... 😉
