    The system that suits the players available, is the best system. Its up to the management and coaching staff to recognise this and act accordingly. Both JR and PP have failed misserably to do this imo. And until a remedy is found we will continue to drift downwards, unfortunately it looks like a long haul tbh.

    I think it’s down to worrying about the opposition. Teams would expect to come to the sol and get bombarded but it’s not happening and we invite teams into the game.

    It’s the same in the away games where we are getting ridiculed by teams and players who are so basic it’s hard to take.

    it’s been that way since we appointed Grayson and will continue until we start to get serious and use what we have to batter teams.

    we are too scared and passive

    On sacking ross, safc were in four competitions. It’s now down to one.

    new manager bounce in absolute reverse

    Please dont say you believe we should not have peddled ross?
    IMO we seem to be equally rudderless.
    We have a manager who is a yes man and in the biggest job he never imagined he would get in a very lacklustre career.
    This appt is yet another dismal display of the football acumen of Richard Hill and his enabler Donald.
    The whole thing is really dispiriting. The competition itself is of little value but the manner of defeat in this and the other worthless cup comps is troubling. We put out a decent team against the gills and again our attacking intent was minimal. That we also seem to have minimal talent coming through from the academy is also cause for concern.
    Maybe in retrospect we should have peddled hill and coton as well as ross.
    What a mess

    If I was the manager of this team I would worry about the opposition too, in fact I would worry about any team in div 2 atm. The players up front dont look to me that they have a worry in the world, and this is what gets me, When Maguire scored the 3 goals a while back I warned about the players attitude then and was shouted down, the fact that since he has contributed nothing makes my point. Grigg has been a complete and utter disaster, greater than all the clowns, skivers and scoundrels we have employed over the last 10 years in the damage inflicted on the club, before he arrived we looked like we had turned the corner that has now all changed. McGeady has always been a loose cannon brilliant one minute annoying the next, but never a team player at any time in his patchy career. We must write at least one if not two of these characters out of the picture one way or another, before they do any further damage. PP has a huge decision to make to break out of this spiral, Im not sure he is the man for the job, but I would love to see him do a Jimmy Adamson and see it through, its our only hope.

    I think that the period skp has been on the dole is testimony to his managerial skill.
    Plenty of jobs have come and gone and he is either applying and not getting them or clubs arent interested.
    its an utter crock to suggest that good former players will make good managers.
    For every 1 Frank Lampard there are 10 tony Adam's.
    We all know ( and wanted ) stendel and Pearson were the stand out candidates for the job.
    However PP was cheap, nasty and a yes man..just the sort donald and hill prefer.
    Laughable all the plaudits donald got for being a 'football man' ???
    Eastleigh ffs.
    8n retrospect short is going to seem like Franz beckenbauer in terms of football administration in comparison with donald.

    Just back in from one of the worst games I have ever seen. Gillingham shaded it by being merely utter ****e, whilst we were absofuckinglutely total ****e. I'd give them 9/100 and us 7/100 :(

    Well said marra. We cannot play both McGeady and Maguire in the same side. I don't know which one I'd choose

    Although I went for a sunderland victory last night I was not shocked by outcome.

    I know Ross and now Parky get a lot of criticism but firmly believe the curent crop of players should be apportioned with more of the blame for our demise,

    If Parky gets the sack and a new manager appointed. With this current crop of players we are going nowhere.

    Until there is a revamp on the pitch, I fear we are stuck with this

    I'm not sure I'd play either, I think at this point we can do without our talented primadonnas, they're doing more harm than good at the moment.

    Until we get another CF in and can go 442 I'd go with

    Power Dobson
    Watmore O'Nien Gooch
    McNulty

    At least there's effort and running in that side.
