    Pars v ICT

    Well summed up, S'Ally. We badly need another win as that would build on the confidence gained from Saturday's game. Training will be a lot happier this week as the players will be buzzing. I hope Yogi will have someone in place for Connolly who will be a big miss. A draw wouldn't be a disaster but it wouldn't do much for our points total. It's maybe too early in the morning, but I can't work out if more or less points are needed to reach safety when a larger number of teams are involved in a relegation scrap. I think Falkirk were relegated with 36 pts a few years back but not sure.

    Pars v ICT

    This is a rearranged fixture postponed from 29.12.21 where the Pars were supposed to host ICT in a closed doors game. Thankfully with crowd restrictions now off the table we should look forward to a healthy crowd with this home fixture with a few visitors heading south on the A9. ICT sit 2nd in the league table 4pts behind Arbroath with a game in hand - the pressure will be on them not to slip up on Saturday. Recent form has seen them earn 6 pts from their past 5 games with a win and three draws, while they are not the biggest scorers in the league (they have still scored 10 more than us) their defence is one of the meanest conceding just 17goals. The Pars form against other teams in the league isn’t great but we are not the worst either we have taken 5pts in 5 games with two draws and a win against Hamilton on out last outing. However, we continue to remain in last place on goal difference from QoS in 9th whose late goal earned them a 2-2 draw against the Highlanders. Clearly, we need to use the momentum from our last win and home advantage to collect another 3pts and there is the added bonus that it may take us into 7th or 8th place in the table – heady heights indeed! The positive factor is we have done better against ICT than any other team in the league with an 0-0 draw and out last outing coming back from a goal down to a 2-1 away win with goals from Devine (OG) and Thomas. Undoubtedly more of the same would be ideal. I think there is a chance of points to be earned. A win would be ideal, but I’ll settle for a 1-1 draw. COYP

    Agree on the young 3, I’ve been critical of them but thought they were all very good yesterday. We need to play the front 3 again the way we did, 3 in the middle worked well and helped protect the defence well. Hope for one or 2 to come in this week and build on yesterday. Can’t get too carried away we are still bottom but if we can play like how we did yesterday every game I think we’ll be fine

    One game at a time but a much better performance yesterday. Lawless giving us that bit of creativity we have been needing. The young trio had a good game yesterday and McCann deserved a goal for his performance,just needed to pick a corner.

    I’m not inside the management or the players heads but I don’t think anyone could complain if they had been dropped after the Morton game

    D'you think we'd have won if Yogi had made 5 or 6 changes from last week, Grant? I don't. Those who were dropped would have felt they'd been made scapegoats and it would have created disharmony in the squad since there were no stars in Greenock. By playing virtually the same team, he gave them the chance to help make up for that disastrous result.

    Benitez gone……

    Aye but its a start Raymie, and he has worked under and learned from top managers, similar to Gerrard, something has to rub off, stick, and influence his managerial style based on his past as a player, Iv'e never been in the (he is inexperienced camp), Based on Everton's previous 10 managers since Moyes left in 2013 he is worth a chance

    Benitez gone……

    I did wonder about Rooney doing well at Derby with the Circumstance's. Bit like Barry Smith at Dundee after they got the 25 points taken off them and went on that crazy run. Funnily it can be easier when you have a siege mentality with "Everyone against you". He then got other jobs and was rank rotten everyone of them.

    Benitez gone……

    Quite different from working with a small squad and no money and no expectations this season, to dealing with massive expectation and spending big money on players

    Benitez gone……

    I think that would work Raymie
  16. Number Eleven

    Benitez gone……

    An experiment doomed to fail. The fans couldn’t take a man so associated with their biggest rivals to their hearts. They could do worse than appoint Big Dunc until the Summer.
  17. Raymie

    Team v Hamilton

    It was very similar to the formation that Liverpool use, I thought? The three midfielders essentially held their positions and provided the protection for the back four or at times, back two. Dow and Lawless would come inside allowing Comrie and Edwards to get forward and support. If I recall correctly, our best chances came from the full backs getting deep into Hamilton’s half ? Both had very good games and Edward’s cross that led to the goal was quality
  18. Grant

    Team v Hamilton

    While he played pretty much the same team, he set them up very differently which was far more important. Who would've thought that playing wide midfielders Lawless and Dow out wide would work?

    Team v Hamilton

    If we're playing 4-3-3 then o'hara would be one of the wider 2. It's either todorov or mccann for the central spot.

    Rooney?

    Team v Hamilton

    Just watched the highlights very impressed, could have had a few. Some of OFW decision making with balls into the box leaves a lot to be desired, still think we should have kept Goodfellow with him coaching. The young lads looked to have had their best game today. Still badly need midfielders and a finisher, McCann caused the defenders no ends of problems but he really should have done better with a couple of chances. I wonder if O'Hara is the better option in a 433.

    Big Dunc taking over in the meantime, They should just give him the job, he will sort them !!

    Team v Hamilton

    I enjoyed the game yesterday. Players were clearly right up for it and it was a performance full of grit, fight, spirit and determination. Lawless had a great game yesterday and along with the return of Thomas will hopefully provide the creativity for the rest of the season. I thought both fullbacks had their best games of the season. They were sound defensively but also got forward. Fantastic cross from Josh for the goal and the link up between Comrie and Lawless bodes well. Dow, Todd and Allan had their best games of the season. Todd in particular caught the eye and that was easily his best game for us. Connolly will be a huge miss but Donaldson looked far better yesterday. Great to see the players reaction at FT. Even with just 556 fans in it was a good atmosphere at the end. I actually think the ultra negative away team tactic of switching round at kick off so we shoot into the Norrie first half backfired as the fans were willing the ball to stay out and reacting to every block, tackle etc. All in all a good day.

    Brian Rice new assistant?

    Fair play it is. Hats off he pulled that one out the hat. Next game is vital, as bad as we were that was night and day from what I heard.

There no winners of the golden goal but most people earned 5 pts from the crowd bonus. The table has had a wee shuffle with Superally leading again for the 11th week from Andrew 283 4pts behind.

    Considering he’s already had Wighton at Arbroath, I’m sure he’s happy enough with him
