    Normally we've signed at least one donkey by this time.

    Maybe should have said was alarming. Robson may well provide width as will De Vita. Don't include Cardle due to his favoured style.

    Always striked me as a classy player. Gamble on fitness not so important with him being on loan. Think he fills a gap in the squad if only as wingback cover but could be a first team choice if we change our formation. The lack of width in the squad is alarming. If this loan signing helps free money to strengthen the squad to bring in a couple of young strikers/forwards then it's a good deal.

    Queens park game at Airdrie

    Don't think Lesser Hampden is fit for purpose and certainly couldn't accommodate many fans..

    Fair comment and all the more valid if we didn't win last night. Equally fair to say that teams have to adapt to playing and winning on such surfaces. And in doing so their normal style of play (assuming it's different) will suffer.

    Evening with Gary Caldwell

    Agree with Thistlebright. I realise tho' confidentiality comes into play. But even if DB just confirmed there's nothing much he can say and qualified last week's 2nd statement it's better than not saying anything at all.

    Well I suppose because we couldn't move the ball quickly from the back (due to the surface), by playing three centrebacks the punt up the park is all but inevitable. We might have to wait to the Dundee Utd game to see just how effective and possession based our playing style is. Before that we've two games at the much slated NDP and the ultra narrow Recs. Neither ideal places to judge a team's style. Being the last in the mini league, the Clyde game at Firhill may be a case of just not getting beat or something. Not for a minute undermining the importance of these three games but feel it fair not to be too judgmental on Caldwell and our style of play during this spell. Mind you, being not a stranger to hypocrisy I'll most likely break my own rule and be slagging Big Heid long before then .

    Caldwell mentioned the surface had a lot to do with the slow movement of the ball and also Cardle was carrying a knock. That was two of my concerns so feel a bit more upbeat today. Thankfully we don't have to play on plastic every week.

    A couple of folk I talked to thought the formation and team selection was simply Caldwell wanting to go thru the paces. I'll reluctantly go along with that as I don't believe any manager would play three centrebacks and two defensive mids to compete against a team two divisions below. Cardle and Gordon did a fair amount of running trying to support the wingbacks and at the same time not leave Miller isolated. Joe particularly looked completely knackered a good bit before he was subbed. Gordon maybe didn't have a great game but he had quite a thankless task tonight. Williamson as most of us probably knew is an out and out wingback. Robson to me doesn't look a typical wingback, more a wide midfielder. Could almost play him like a left sided Fitzpatrick.

    As above. We were as slow as hell bringing the ball forward and only the wingbacks showed a turn of pace now and again. Pitch probably played a part in making it pretty poor fare.

    Which reminds me, at £2.50 (up 10p), do we have the dearest pies in the division?

    Aye, that's what I was saying.

    I think the "leap of faith"evening from a time gone by will always mean there's doubters out there.

    Not too fussed about losing Spittal but he scored a few goals in both seasons he was with us. Maybe Cardle and a fit all season Gordon will in some way compensate but I feel with central midfield covered we need one (perhaps two) wide midfielders with an eye for goal, As it is I don't see goals coming from midfield anything like the amount Lawless & Erskine provided 7 years ago. Also it should be minded that we'll likely be starting most games with one less midfielder than we had back then.
