 Crawfords interview

Not concerned we have only 2 points because we have played the two Dundee teams .What about playing the two weakest teams only getting 1 point usual managers excuses.

Get him chased. He’s so far out his depth it’s embarrassing.

Tactically clueless and bringing in his mate to help is just as bad .

If we take a step back, we hired an inexperienced manager and went with a strategy of youth with inexperienced players, at what point did we think that combination would work?

I’d be interested to know how much input Greg Shields has with the first team as listening to his interviews he comes across very well and is a no nonsense kind of guy and with his coaching experience in the US, arguably he would’ve been a better candidate than Crawford.

Crawford comes across too respectful and nice, can’t see him ripping into the players after that performance which was nothing short of abysmal.

Jackie McNamara was a disastrous decision from the start, can’t believe that was even entertained.

what else is he supposed to say....apart from "I resign" which is what some posters desperately want...

"his coaching experience in the US, arguably he would’ve been a better candidate than Crawford"

don't agree with that no.

Give him until November, that way if this experimental team isn't working then he has to sign more seasoned pros.

Worrying times. Players like Coley haven’t impressed me at all and like others have said, the McNamara experiment was a concern. We seriously need another goalkeeper and for goodness sake, keep Devine miles away from the starting line up! Surely Lang will get a chance next week?

" come to a difficult venue away to Arbroath" - sorry Stevie there aren't easier away fixtures in the league, if you think getting a result at Arbroath is hard then wait till we have to go to Utd, Caley, Ayr,Partick and Dundee etc.

To be fair he has to say stuff like that otherwise it's disrespectful to Arbroath.

Give him to end of September.
Enough time to see what progress has been made.

We made the mistake with AJ that despite poor results there was always going to be a turnaround sometime.

Jobs for the boys. Auld pals act. Sad to see that stuff in 2019. Pumped aff an awful Raith team last season the warning signs were there. Tactically naive and about as much charisma as a set of traffic cones.

Funnily enough Arbroath fans are full of compliments about Crawfords honesty in his post match interview.

If it wasn't for Scully having another howler then we'd have a draw, which considering the conditions wouldn't be the end of the world.

Crawford did make mistakes today, more than a few but this is truly the first time of the season where it was badly wrong.

While we didn't create any chances today I think the biggest problem is our lack of clean sheets, the defence is very quickly going to lose faith in Scully, for our centre backs Murray looks good but Morrison and Devine aren't good enough, Lang needs to be given a chance.

Well yes, I've already commented on that fairly extensively on the other thread.

Time is running out for Stevie. We shouldn't be going six months without a league win in Scotland’s second tier. The experiment has gone too far... We should have signed 2-3 experienced players. The board seem incapable of appointing a manager that will take our club forward.

Grant, were you not at the Queen of the South or Dundee Utd games - today was merely the worst of 3 very poor performances.

Defensively the back four are ok but Scully is a bomb scare and we lack creativity going forward.

Robinson may of been a heedless chicken, however he was much more comfy on the ball with the playing it out from the back game we seem to be going for, Scully looks so stiff and unaware on what he's too do with it when gets it at his feet.

I don't think we lack creativity going forward personally, we have quality in Turner and Nisbet, the two wingers have very little experience between them but are good players all the same. The main issue is we want to build up play from the back but we give it to Devine who hoofs it, or Paton who does a similar thing. How the hell are Nisbet and Turner meant to create when they have to deal with that. Also what has happened to our pressing game? It was completely absent today, we had no runners which meant space wasn't being created. Centre back is not only an important position in terms of defending but for us we need a centre back that can pass the ball out. Devine nor Ashcroft are capable of that and therefore shouldn't ever be put together. Look at last season!
