    Liverpool - Man U (Clash of the Titans)

    Shoplifters miles ahead. Man Utd have limited organisation and getting pulled out of position too much

    Lang out on loan

    I actually liked big Jock. We could be doing with a “clear out” centre half instead of all this f*$king about at the back. To be fair a Football connoisseurs player he was not.

    Made Crawford look stupid and insincere IMO

    Scotland to Ban Heading in U-12 Football

    I think this is a very positive and responsible stance. The human brain does not fill develop until about 25 years, but the rapid growth period, up to the teens is where it is more susceptible to damage. From personal experience the potential for short and long term damage is huge playing football, like all contact sports. By taking heading out the game during the formative football years we reduce exposure to repeat trauma and reduce the risk of head collision. From a footballing perspective it might also develop footballers and reduce the tendency to resort to route 1 crap.

    He needs to play next to someone with a surname beginning with M?🤔

    Tom Lang off on loan to Clyde until the end of the season. Wonder if there is potential for a loan CH coming in?

    So where do we go from here?

    I’m concerned about the future of the club. I liked Crawford as a player and I’m sure he’s a nice guy so I don’t see any value in personal insults. I just don’t see him offering any hope of turning things around and if the current trend continues it’s the seaside league which would be damaging. I honestly don’t think he has that leadership/management capability to compete in League 1 (as shown by results against Alloa, Arbroath, Stranraer etc). At some point a decision will have to be made regarding the clubs direction. what saddens me is that I’ve not been at the last few games as my laddie has had enough and packed it in. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is in this position and this is concerning. I get where we are financially but it is sickening to see us lose to lesser teams due to lack of fight, organisation team selection and tactics. Obviously I hope I’m wrong and we leather Dundee and it all starts from there.

    What I would give to have someone like him now as captain. 24 years and it seems like yesterday. RIP Norris and Mandy

    Biggest problems I see is that Crawford is not inspirational and does not seem to get the dynamic of football management. He is way too slow to identify and adapt to the requirement to change. There is too much “this is what we do” and not enough “ this is what we are going to do now”. It could almost be termed strategic drift, we set out fine and on track then as the other team adapts we fail to change to suit leaving us miles off point. And he continues to play Devine, Ashcroft and Scully (murder and Scully) which beggars belief.

    I think In terms of individual players we have one of the best squads in the league. The problem is half the time they look like they have never met, especially at the back and the lack of motivation and drive is concerning. When you look at teams like Sheffield Utd, wolves and to some extent Newcastle the sum of the performance is far greater than the individual talent compared to their peers.

    Fair enough. Still feel the long term cost of project Crawford i.e. seaside league and **** crowds defeats the purpose of the master plan.

    We’re going to end up paying him off when he takes us down. 1 year rolling contract means we will be liable for the same compensation (unless there is a relegation and yer oot clause in his contract). Could we afford to pay him off on seaside league crowd revenue?

    Where we are is pretty dire, there is quality in the squad but no structure, direction or tactics whatsoever. As it stands we are facing diminishing crowds and a fast pass to the seaside league which may be without the wee team and Grangemouth. Basic maths shows that it would be cheaper to bin Crawford now then take relegation and bin him at the end of the season as the compensation will be the same. Personally I won’t be back until he goes, that’s the last two games I’ve missed and it really hasn’t bothered me which is sad I feel that way. Who would we look to get in? Who would want it? More importantly do the board have the nads to say project Crawford has failed?
