    League stats under RN

    For his entire spell since Alloa was his 36th league match in charge and also how it's developed over the stages of his time in charge...

    Neilson league record so far
    Pld 36 W22 D6 L8 F59 A34 Pts 72
    Win% 61 ppg 2.0 gfpg 1.64 gapg 0.94

    Since Jan window (his own team)
    Pld 22 W15 D2 L5 F40 A18 Pts 47
    Win% 68 ppg 2.14 gfpg 1.82 gapg 0.82

    This season to date (after summer window)
    Pld 8 W6 D0 L2 F22 A8 Pts 18
    Win% 75 ppg 2.25 gfpg 2.75 gapg 1.0


    Improvement in each area pretty much and just to compare games won/win% and pts/ppg to previous winners and runner up

    Dundee Won 21 (58.3%) Pts 69 (1.92)

    4 defeats out of 4 at Ayr and Alloa. Just like Wright had McNamara's number. Needs more urgency pace fight power tackling and attack away from home. And 1 2 3 joining the 1 up top quickly.

    How anyone can think of sacking Robbie is beyond me.

    I haven't saw any, but I'm sure you are correct.

    To be fair , Robbie is making mistakes , but who doesn't ? And I'm not a huge fan of stats (especially regarding the 90 minutes) but stats over seasons/years don't lie. Robbies stats are pretty good and improving all the time. There is no one out there at this point in time IMO that can do a better job. I remember back in the day folk sometimes complaining about Jim McLean's team selections and tactics yet he didn't end up doing too bad did he?

    We are far from a great team, but we are making progress, just wish we could cut out getting beat from part time teams ,and if we do ,at least look like as a team we are furious to be doing so..............

    I think if we'd been playing well although losing to the PT teams folk wouldn't be quite as angry about it, I think to many fans it's the disappointment of such poor performances that's causing the criticism.
    Maybe we should expect a bit of inconsistency with a fairly new team, I suppose when you look at the league above us it's there with Hibs Hearts and the Sheep too
    It does seem that Robbie brings a lot of this on himself though with selections and set up.

    Very good post Stoke.
    Summarises what many people are saying in different posts.

    Ye, very good post Stokey but the only thing I can't agree with you on this is the selection bit, his hands are somewhat tied on this just now with a few injuries and the lack of depth in the squad.

    Cheers Whitfield. But he "selected" a new left back in midfield, a right back at left back and a centre back at right back. I'm confused just typing it!
    He also selected to leave Shanklands best striking partner this season on the bench. So I think for that match alone there are serious questions and posters are entitled to ask them.

    He also did all that against Morton and it worked spectacularly. The only real difference was Butcher being out.

    All made because Butcher & Robson were unavailable. I like Sporle at left mid but RN obviously doesn't trust him at left back. Appere being benched recently is a bit of a mystery though I'll give you that.

    Critics might say he's had two windows so maybe should have enough cover for the positions. Hard to say.
    For me it seems to do with coaching, one minute we look like Barca the next minute wed struggle to beat Bellshill Boys Club. He should be finding that consistency in performance by now. 2-0 v the Fun is plenty if we also get 0-1 at Alloa.
    Just to answer the question from Portuguese Frank I'm not wanting him sacked either but he can't keep chopping and changing the team and the tactics. The same formation home and away in this league will do the job
    Tbh I fear the guy thinks he's Pep Guardiola and overthinks things far too much.

    I doubt the owners will stick with him if we fail to get up this year and to be fair he'd only have himself to blame.
    The danger there is he's away to a new job and we're stuck with another year of this nightmare.

    I don't think he does chop and change the team unless he has to (injuries et cetera). Can you give examples from this league season where he's done that?
