Thread: Looking ahead positively

    I agree it was not solely the defences fault we failed.....other areas like midfield where we were lacking creativity.
    however I always remember when CL came in he started by making us sound in defence.....a solid base to work from.

    1-1 it was in 120 minutes. This focus solely on cb is a wee bit of a red herring surely

    We've got a crap midfield and a crap attack. We play crap football. The defence isn't great but it isn't the reason we're staying down GB

    We were fkn honking all over the park today bar the goalkeeper. What a fkn time to have an absolute nightmare.

    Agree that our centre halves aren't our immediate problem because it's plain to see we are 5hite all over the place.

    Our forwards are weak as pi55, our midfield is fkn devoid of any creation and as a collective we can't make more than 5 passes together.

    Gutted.

    There has been wee signs of improvement over the last few months but that today was horrendous and probably the easiest team we'll ever play against in a play off.

    We are staying down because our central defence have no composure to deal with ball's into the box or out of the box from the keeper.I witnessed with my own eyes and ears Connelly screaming to other defenders and his keeper NO NO NO,he as you would gather did not want the ball with naebody near him,FACT.

    Pawlett has been playing with an injury for weeks and Sow had barely played before joining us. I think, free of injury and with a full pre-season, both will give us much more next season.

    Compared to this time last year it's night and day with how I feel about next season and the future as I did a year ago

    This time I feel confident about our future, think as a club we are going to kick on from here, we have a foundation this time to build on with a summer window to improve where it's required but without the same kind of rebuild before, we have a manager who is more than capable of leading us to the title given the chance of a full season with his own team, we have the owner who will back it, we have the fan base back onside who were staying away due to previous owner and his mess, a fan base which blows anything else out the water in the league next season

    When the fixtures come out we will all be raring to go and we should look forward to it and the journey it will be, it's not where we wanted to be but a year from now we will look back and say it was a necessity to fix the mess of the previous owner and the previous manager, was never going to be the quick fix we hoped.
    You must have readied this post pre match today.

    Fkn defeatist attitude and symptomatic of all that's wrong with our club presently.

    St Mirren are absolute 5hite. What a chance missed that was

    ......... Always next season though......... Or the season after that........ Or the season after that......

    I will wager £20 for a charity of your choice both will be ****ing mince next season will be disastrous signings to rival Mathie and Crawford and McCulloch and Jourgensen and Fyvie in effectiveness per £ spent

    Is it still true that, since talking the manager's job, Robbie's team have gained the most points in the league ahead of any other team?

    I wasn't having a go at you Chick! We conceded a bad goal today but it still ended 1-1.
    imo it wasnt the reason we're staying down, was all I've been trying to point out

    Too many times our back 4 launch it long.
    When our midfield do get the ball they're panicked and wasteful. They either punt it long as well or end up losing possession. Our front players don't bring the midfield into play then make runs. Even if they did by and large our midfield aren't good enough to pick the right pass.
    There's no patience, no pattern to our play, no composure on the ball. I think it's pretty bleak as things stand and anyone saying this squad can be tweaked to win the championship is making a very bold prediction.
    Either the combination of 14 players can't play football or our coach is unable to get them playing football and no amount of look on the bright side threads can gloss over than imo
    Some reality at last!

    Probably but RC took foot off pedal once league clinched. Performances have not been exciting nor attracted punters till playoffs. Needs to get the shackles off and go for these ****e teams in.league. Some awful wins and yes one more today would have done fine. We need to find a 25 goal serious striker next year. And about 7 more players. Today was pisspoor.

    Is it true that we drew or lost games under Robbie which if won would have seen us win the Championship?

    As I said in the op, not a thread for dwelling on today there is a thread for that, anyone thinking short term or who can't get passed today or this season that's upto you... Revel in your negativity and disappointment

    Neilson is manager next season, the club is in a much better place than this time a year ago, we don't need a total rebuild just an augmentation, we have the chance to build properly and hit the ground running next season without any transition or turmoil on and off the park

    Going up this season would have been a huge and unlikely bonus all this but it wasn't to be

    I agree GB, but I increasingly don't give a ****: it doesn't matter what fans think and I have better things to do with my spare time and money.

    That said, I see the green shoots of recovery but as an allotment holder I have real green shoots to look after...

    I voiced my opinion elsewhere that i thought St Mirren did us up like kippers and played for the draw with an ace up their sleeve. Connelly sure as hell helped their cause by making his mistake.

    'short term' - I wonder what you consider short term? 1 year, 2 years, 4, 10? There is a fine line between blind positivity and defeatism.

    To suggest we need a wee tweak here and there makes me out to be a poor judge of a football player but unless God throws down a miracle on the Arabs there is nae chance of us going up with Connelly,Reynolds,Sow or Pawlett in the side so on one hand we need a wee tweak and on the other half a team is required.
    I know who is right but that is not important,i honestly just hope the people at the top of the club can see what i can.
    Wow GB - with the tweaks I’m talking about being middle to front with Safranko defo gone. We’ve just played 400 minutes of play off football and conceded one goal. ONE goal. I’m not sure you could ask for more. I’m hopeful of seeing Bouhenna at the back more next season who may answer our ‘playing out from the back’ issues but contrary to your post, we have a core of a team there. Start to get behind them mate - the Snake is gone now.I know you’re a guid Arab - we need guys like you on board and committed.
