 Idiots Guide to playing in the wind........

FFS - How difficult was it to work out tactically.

FH - Hurricane strength wind at your back.

Shoot on sight! You could have scored from the half way line today. 35 mins until our solitary shot today - woeful.

Quick counter attacks launch diagonals from the full backs & get players down the flanks.

SH - Easy, don't bother with a cross just over hit it and the ball will stall and drop to onrunning forwards (Arbroath did this in the FH - That's right they even showed us how to do it!).

Unfukingbeleavable ...... Got what we deserved today'

The free kick at the end where we put everyone up then Scully managed to get it about 10 yards since he hit it so high, followed by doing the same thing when it was cleared, would have been laughable had it not been the Pars I was watching.

I'm guessing arbroath are more than competent in the wind ,as they play in the conditions most home games ,as teams that play on plastic pitches always do well at home .

It’s a bit of wind man, makes it more difficult but both teams have to play in it.

Watching that was so depressing. In the second half, pumping high balls to a striker who is no more than decent in the air, with no one close enough to him to benefit if he managed to win one. I don't think we got behind their defence once but Arbroath did get into a few dangerous positions in the first half.

I remember when SC first arrived he was commended for his post-match interviews but now it's the same every week - ''we'll look at the video and we'll learn from it''. We still haven't taken anything from a game under SC where we've lost the first goal. That's a pretty damning statistic. Funnily enough, I think the best we've done is taking Celtic to extra time.

Or a 3 - 0 game against Dundee Utd several years ago. It finished 3 - 3.

Remember in the 90's under Paton we would often come unstuck at the then 'new' Forthbank and Broadwood Stadiums; both almost identical with, crucially, nothing behind either goal so in effect a big wind tunnel which was not helpful at all with our style of play yet we never seemed to adapt.

The answer is: Stop listening to iconic tracks by Bob Dylan and start supporting the Pars.

The referee thought about postponing the match because of that wind.
