    You’re absolutely right, from being in a position of strength after reaching the top six , it’s unbelievable we’ve ended up where we are just now especially with the financial rewards that we had , the old pals act of Archibald, Paterson , Beattie and Maxwell should have been broken up long before it did , as results and performances were there for all to see. We can’t sleepwalk towards another relegation, by my reckoning Caldwell has got the December fixtures to get some wins on the board , if not I wouldn’t trust him with funds for the January window . It would be financial meltdown if we got relegated 2 years in a row , we can’t let that happen.

    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    Don’t think Storey has enough about him to play as a winger , think if we’re going to use him it would be as an impact sub against a tiring defence but definitely through the middle rather than out wide . If we’re under pressure he would be ok as an out ball because of his pace .

    Got to disagree with the 3 at the back all it did was pin us back and we couldn’t get out, we were playing the team at the bottom of the league who had lost two of their forwards to international duty, if that’s Caldwell’s aspirations to hang onto a point against one of the worst Falkirk teams I’ve seen think we’re in big trouble.

    Think we need to look at how the season has unfolded so far , there is no chance of promotion in my opinion and I would be quite happy if we avoided relegation and avoided the playoffs to the first division. Whether we get players in the next transfer window , don’t think it will help with promotion aspirations ( currently 20 points behind Ayr and 12 points behind 4th placed Inverness ) and that gap will probably increase before January. I’m genuinely astounded that promotion was even mentioned at the AGM in light of the way our season has unfolded , think Gerry Britton and Jacqui Lowe need a reality check. Do they think the supporters are daft ?

    I’ve got to agree with Big Col and it’s more to do with the managers perceived philosophy on the game which is not far removed from Alan Archibald’s possession at all costs with very little product . I’m not sure whether we change players about in January will make a difference if today is an example , Storey ran about but made little impact , the very obvious substitute was to replace Storey with Aidan Fitzpatrick and try to win the game instead he changed to a 3 at the back which became a 5 as the two full backs got pinned back , why we were running scared of a team rooted to the foot of the league is beyond me. Sorry Caldwell doesn’t inspire me either .

    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    Once again ineffective football , no player in the team making anything happen , taking players on to create anything to move opposing players out of position. Ridiculous substitution Scobbie for Storey which just invited Falkirk on to us . And finally Caldwell gave one of the most ridiculous interviews I’ve ever heard . Worrying

    The attack is fine , Doolan , Quitongo , Erskine have already proved they can score goals at this level but if you set up with 1 up front and no real support from the midfield you aren't going to score a lot of goals , you need to attack as a team getting 4 or 5 players into the box , still believe we've got good players at the club provided they've got the freedom to express themselves .

    Do we need two holding midfield players playing against the bottom of the league? and having watched Quitongo against Morton it’s easy to come to the conclusion he can’t play a lone strikers role

    If you were at any of these games , you would know there wasn’t 77 opportunities!!!

    Think you’re getting mixed up with shots at goals on target or off target, if you take Morelos at Rangers , think he’s takes roughly 1 out of every 3 chances he’s given because of the we play Doolan etc don’t have that luxury , out of all the games you mentioned the only one we deserved to get anything out of was last weeks Inverness game where it’s fair to say we missed chances ( penalty etc )

    Over the last 18 months , the negative tactics of Archibald was the main problem sometimes it was a back 5 with 2 holding midfield players , leaving the forward/s up front on their own. There is no box to box midfield player to complement and supplement the forwards and get 5 - 10 goals a season . Unfortunately Caldwell seems to have his thinking on the same lines as Archie , if you don’t play attacking football with 4 or 5 players pushing on you don’t score goals , at our level if a forward scores 1 in 3 chances he’s done well , the way our team has been set up that’s a very unlikely scenario.

    ICT vs. Thistle

    If you had been at Cappielow you would have seen Jai Quitongo can’t play a lone striker role , couldn’t hold the ball up , ran in straight lines all the time and in general as with the rest of the team was very poor . On Saturday with Doolan in the team , Quitongo was allowed to express himself, if you had been at the last 2 games you would have seen the difference in performance on Saturday and Doolan being in the team was part of an improved performance whether he scored or not .

    Probably how can you make a measured judgment on a game if you weren’t there ?

    Not so sure ICT are that mediocre as that is their 25th game unbeaten, agree re bench with possibly only McCarthy to come on to give us a bit more legs . Still a bit more optimistic than I was last week driving back from Cappielow .
