    F@ck Rooney. Get rid and be left with May and Cosgrove. Sounds like bums off seats sh@t
    Dearie me, did oor Del turn down you and your chumís advances for a photo/autograph?......just seems everything is his fault in both your eyes!.......FFS......at our club we have a management team......the data/performances will be analysed and a collective decision will be made on any player regarding performance/fitness/attitude......perhaps that does not fit into your mindset.

    Rooney is a good player, however, 0 goals in his last 15 outings suggest you are right about our master tactician after all, I doff my cap accordingly.

    Onwards and upwards

    To be fair to the players the data recorder doesn't pick up that a striker has been put out on the wing to contest the odd high ball. Said striker would be far better analysed by the coaching staff playing through the middle while feeding on crosses coming in from real wide players getting to the byeline.

    Indeed, however the catapult is on their torso recording every detail thru the week and also obviously for 90 minutes on a Saturday, perhaps that is why the management team analyse things and perhaps why we finished the 2nd best team over the season......again.

    Aye, that`s it. Poor Loon does anything/everything he`s asked to do for the Team and the Club. Even when it doesn`t suit his style of play at all.

    It`s painful watching Rooney being expected to play as a Left Winger , and try and outjump ANY Centrehalf. It`s just not his game.
    Lets give him a run as a penalty box striker, and bingo 20 goals plus per season.

    I suppose the problem now is that this boy Cosgrove finally gives us that Big Target mand who can hold the ball, head it down for others and cause " mayhem" in the oppostion defence ( Aye , mayhem with a small m.)

    So what`s Deek going to do now ? Switch to 4-4-2 ? Hmmmm.

    I know it’s difficult to believe but he did apparently play professionally before signing for us. He even managed to go on loan to teams in the league below the conference still couldn’t score there. Imagine if we gave a game to a kid who played 38 senior games with 1 goal even mackie would have been more lethal !!
    But he may run around a bit more than Rooney

    He's the worst player we have to be playing down the wing as well. I can understand Mcinnes going for May in the hope that he scores as many goals and does a little bit more that Rooney can't. Problem last season was that May couldn't do either.

    Not a bad idea. I'd be happy to see Cosgrove start with Rooney as long as it is in a 4-4-2 and not a 4-2-3-1. It would certainly give the opposition something to ponder.

    I'm glad Cosgrove is still here. He seemed to fit in well in the small amount of games he has played for us.

    Indeed, although I expect Rooney was signed on goaĺscoring stats while at Caley rather than the black box recordings from training sessions. In truth being shuffled out wide makes even less sense as I can't believe his fitness is where it was when he joined. It's clear to my eyes that it isn't and would hope he returns to be the penalty box striker.

    Which we've been lacking since Hayes and McGinn left.

    McGinn might be OK after the summer off, but Mackay-Steven is far too inconsistent, and is a bit of a fannydancer.

    Rooney will always sniff a chance if he gets the service, but when it isn't there, he's ineffective, as he is wide left.

    I suppose that Cosgrove gives us the hold-up option to bring midfield players into scoring positions, or acts as target man to see if strikers can benefit from knock-downs. May is a different type of striker too, more the Dingus type running at defenders, but he's been pretty ineffective ever since that ****ing pretendy-hun snake maimed him. Maybe a break and a pre-season will do him the world of good.

    I actually think we were found out the day we were humped 5-1 at home by St Johnstone in 2015-16, and other teams learned from their efficient hammerthrowing that day. Press us up the pitch, shut off the width, put pressure on the non ball-playing defender to lump it up the park to a non-physical striker and opposition increased their chances of success against us. Church, Stockley and Cosgrove have found places in the squad in succession to give us an alternative option.

    And that's fit I think.

    You have made a dick out yourself there

    Anything to praise the guy min. Oir goals were down with Rooney as bit part. Bring on Stevie the Saviour May and Sam the smash and grab Cosgrove. Mays recotd for his price and contract length in our cplours is laughable

    Come on the once michty and our current coach

    You've nailed it and irrespective of signings once again we'll line up playing our safety first approach this season coming. Get the shackles off, let the team play.

    If the team is set up for Rooney to score goals he will get 20 plus,I disagree that teams have sussed out how to stop us if we play like that.Kilmarnock played like that last season and other teams never managed to stop fat Kris Boyd from scoring 20 odd goals.

    I agree that if we get rid of a striker itís likely to be Rooney,Cosgrove just signed in January and May has 3 years left in his 4 year deal so neither of them are going in the summer.

    Personally I think it would be a massive gamble letting Rooney leave,Cosgrove is likely to be sent off more times than he will score and May has to do a hell of a lot better than he did last season.I thought he would be a good player for us but he is a shadow of the player he was at St Johnstone.
