As title says. Can’t think of the last time we conceded that many in such a short space of time.

Only Albion rovers have a worse defensive record in the whole of Scotland. All over the place at the back & it looks like it’s getting worse rather than improving.

The last time we lost that many in such a short space of time?

Probably just before Stephen Kenny got the sack !!

July/August 2016 was the last time we conceded 12 in 4 games.(We lost 5-1 at home to ICT in one of those games)

We're awash with players. It's just that most of them are pretty mediocre and few of them seem able to play joined up football.

As stated on another thread: do we have a defensive coach now that Potter has gone ?

no but even when he was here very little "coaching" was done, now with the reserve team it would be even less although he would still have a word about things.

answer below, no im not.

Thanks for the reply that you are not part of the coaching team. Unfortunately you only answered one part of the question. So how do you know about the input that Potter had?

'Thanks for the reply that you are not part of the coaching team.'

NO he isn't, but giving someone 25mins to reply because calling them out is a bit nonsense really.

WHat he probably meant is that Potter was here to coach the youth team, I suspect his influence on the 1st team would be minimal at most

If you listen to the first part of the Black and White podcast, Stevie Crawford talks about how he's reserve manager but also first team coach and that the young boys will often train with the first team. That was exactly the role Potter had - under 20 manager and first team coach. He would have surely been having some input with that role and title?

The under 20s, or reserves, or any other players associated with the club should all be adhering to an overall philosophy with regards to training, tactics, fitness work etc.

After all, they should be ready to step up to the first team when required.

I'd like to think that the team have regular meetings to instil a common approach and thinking. I doubt it though.

3-5-2 or 5-3-2 whatever is far too open. Everybody blaming the defence. What support did the defence get from the midfield. Very little. When the highlights come out, you will see what I mean. The build up prior to the free kick before the first goal. No midfield cover when they broke for the second and third goals. Defending is not all about defenders.
