 Tonight`s game
Topic Originator: Alan  
Date:   Fri 13 Aug 18:04

Probably 3 or 4 goals would be an acceptable outcome of tonight`s game, but a 5 or 6 goal Victory would be even better.

Joking apart, after last week all we can hope for is a spirited performance tonight, total concentration needed from the start, and hopefully we can avoid the loss of an early goal, and also hope that our young inexperienced team don`t buckle under the pressure. Good luck to the team tonight. COYP.

Surprised and not in a way

I would have taken Graham out for the Partick game but maybe that sends the wrong message to the lad, that one bad game and your out, but he had 2 very dodgy performances and given another shot which if makes mistakes tonight surely would need seriously looked at for next week.

Mehmet, maybe a bit different for gk but guess when a gk makes a mistake in a game there isn't much he can do apart from perform in the next game if selected, so here's hoping they both perform

Incredibly bold to essentially keep the same team, would've had Thomas in a more advanced position for the counter attack, good luck to them all, hopefully they can step up and put in a great performance.

Mental line up at Ibrox and very surprising to see Graham starting (yet again) when he has cost a goal in the majority of games he has played this season. I have to say, I`m fearing the worst. Rangers have a very strong squad out tonight. Would love to be wrong but think I`ll have more chance with the EuroMillions!

Whereas setting up the team the same way in which they looked dreadful defensively against Partick Thistle against Glasgow Rangers is great entertainment?

Give me peace, Crawford set his team up well at Parkhead and I'm sure if you ask anyone they'll tell you they found that entertaining.


Any pars fans entertained here?

I didn’t expect anything other than a loss tonight. Yes we could play with 10 behind the ball but inevitably, we would lose goals anyway.
What entertainment is that for the fans ?

This is a total shambles.
Formation and tactics at ibrox are a joke.
The gaps in the defence are laughable. “Compact back 3” 😂
GK is possibly the worst I’ve ever seen.

None of the players look good enough.

Got to say, I was going to give Grant a chance but so far in the league and this cup game it has been utter, utter dross.

The thing with that is though is that the fans by and large understand football to say "We're playing the best team we're going to play all season, it's absolutely understandable if we line up differently to how we did against Stenhousmuir"

If you line up in a decent enough manner and get pumped it is what it is, we are simply playing a far superior time. Set us up like this though and fans will rightfully be annoyed, and a bit embarrassed at what's happening.

Going by the first 35 minutes, it could end up 7 or 8. Maybe we should employ delaying tactics in the second half, goalie wasting time at goal kicks and taking the ball to the corner flag. But maybe we will never make it far enough up the park to reach the corner flag. Things can only get better.

Pars207 both playing in the middle next to Dorrans.

What’s Dorrans done in those games? Waste of a wage money could’ve been used elsewhere.

We were winning and he changed a winning team and brought Dorrans straight in. Since then we haven’t kicked a ball.

3-0 against Partick and no changes at the back. Gaspuitis ain’t the answer either.

Pybus - I would get a game ahead of him.

Grant will be out soon. He’s got to have 2nd biggest budget and with the squad he has should be getting so much more. His decisions are baffling

That's what I was hoping he'd use it for, but my thinking in line with that was that we'd have a different formation and a new player to get match fitness (one of the cbs on the bench) the thought of this system against Raith terrifies me.

Will you still be jumping on every critical post if it gets to 7 or 8? Total apologist for an absolute embarrassment.

Graham came rushing out when the ball was played forward leaving a massive gap in behind him for Roofe to exploit so maybe if Vytas was playing he wouldn't have made such a schoolboy mistake.

From Grants interviews he talks a good game and when discussing transfers it’s his way or no way.

That’s the problem with this formation it’s in his head and it won’t change.

Watson is over compensating as he has Comrie on 1 side playing at CB when it’s no his position and Graham on the other who is well - gash.

Dorrans hasn’t the legs for a 2 in midfield, Pybus offers nothing.

Wighton is a hit or a miss but no battler.

The formation is the biggest problem, fix that and our season could turn

Yes, I would like to see Vytas at the back too. If the gossip is true, the big fella`s not happy at EEP, and I think most of us would understand why.

That team selection today is beyond shocking. It is naive to think that a formation that has not been working will suddenly come good in an away game at Ibrox.

The only good thing I can see is the healthy size of the crowd, which should bring in a fair bit of money to the club.

We've had a lot of players back in defensive areas so I'm not entirely sure the formation is the issue. We've made mistakes in areas you can't make mistakes and have generally been out classed. Like a few others though I'm slightly surprised we've got an international center half on the bench when we don't have natural center half's playing as center halfs. Does seem a bit strange.

Dorrans is less effective than Paton and that`s saying something. He`s been a disaster so far.
Once that first goal was conceded the players heads went down and the game plan obviously went out the window.
I feel most sorry for the Pars fans in the stadium just now having to put up with this spectacle and the moronic sevco fans.

I watched Rangers play Livingston the other week. Livingston parked the bus and still got beat 3-0, going on double that.
77% possession and 18 goal attempts.

It’s just goes to show that if the other team have better players, then in most cases, it doesn’t really matter what you do

I watched Rangers play Livingston the other week. Livingston parked the bus and still got beat 3-0, going on double that.
77% possession and 18 goal attempts.

It’s just goes to show that if the other team have better players, then in most cases, it doesn’t really matter what you do

There's still a chance for positives, hopefully this is the final nail in the 343 coffin, if PG comes away from this and goes to a formation which gets the best out of the players... Then ironically getting skelped by 4 in the first half by Rangers might be the catalyst for this season.

No, everyone can.



However if today we lined up with no defenders and just lined up with 10 attackers would you still be saying the same? "Ach Well we don't have the better players so what's the point?".

Fans want the manager to set the team up so it gives them the best chance of winning, we didn't do that today.


I'm genuinely surprised any Pars fan needs that explained to them, we went to Parkhead against the best team in Scotland, who had won the treble treble and ran them so close.

On that we utterly agree, I thought it was fantastic against teams where you have a clear advantage in, and it can really help push home that advantage.


Against teams where the games going to be a bit more even, or against better defences?no tah.

Not a surprise though, the team you'd play against Brechin wouldn't be the team you'd play against Barcelona etc.

I was very surprised to see Dorrans starting against Morton just a few days after we signed him, with not time at all to get to know the other players and settle in. We weren`t that desperately bad at the time, having qualified in second place for the next round of the league Cup.

Grant has created a problem that wasn’t there. Last season our defence was fairly sound. Comrie, Watson, Murray and Edwards. He only had to replace 1 CB. Shields and Whittaker were both there and and should know that.

The formations Grant is trying to play of 5-2-1-2 just doesn’t work. If Comrie and Graham are 2 of the 3 first choice centre halves then we should give up now.

Dorrans should never have been in the starting 11 at Morton.

Dom has been dropped like a hot potatoe since.

As for developing young talent what must Paul Allan be thinking?

We need to get back to basics and play 4-4-2. Say what you like but it’s straight forward and something they have been used to

Comrie and Graham are playing i would guess cause he wants 2 centre halfs to be on the ball and play from the back. Issue from last week was Comrie didn't seem to want to go forward or told not too on the right hand side of the park

Dorrans for me can only play in a 3 with least 1 of then bombing forward. Paul Allan I would give an extended run in the team personally, can't be worse than Thomas has been or what Cole has produced so far

Comrie has been 1 of most consistent performers at RB.

A defenders job is to stop goals no play nice football. If that is the aim it’s failing. No point constantly trying for success when it’s no working. That’s 3 games in a row and we have been dross.

Morton should’ve been out of sight, Partick cuffed us and whilst i didn’t expect to win tonight I did expect there to be some heart on display. Same Herat we show by pumping money into the club.

If we lose next week Grant needs to go, look at Hamilton Rice gone after 2 games no time for any sort of sentiment, if the owners want totes help there goals then changes need to happen

As PARS207 said at least it was only 5. Perhaps the money should be spent on gardening leave for Peter Grant. Then we can drop his signings and get players that can defend, manage the midfield, catch the ball and can play on the wing back into the team.

Well in my head I expected 7 or 8 tonight so I suppose 5 is ok.


If this idiot ( PG) persists with the same formation/players for the Raith game then god help us.


There is a right way to lose a game and we need to see big changes next week.

Not only in formation but starting 11.

We have to go 4231, away from home, be hard to beat…..at least.

We are a joke just now.

Can he turn it around? … Early days, but I am sure we can scrape fourth over the season.

I have said in previous posts that this season was not going to go well.

Sorry for the guys that believed the hype and laid money on us winning the league…🤣🤣🤣

We have lost games against them by more than 5 in previous games even with a SPL squad never mind a SPL1 squad.

Was at a League cup semi at Hampden when we lost 5-0 to Rangers many years ago, it’s not the end of the world.

League campaign is where PG will prove his worth or not.

IMO we are stronger than last season but PG has to convince that he is the man we need for promotion.

Sounds like he has gone through them tonight after the game, few home truths said perhaps. Least PG offers an apology.

You have got to learn from your mistakes as well Peter and take responsibility and change the formation that even the layman can see. Hung the players out to dry a bit there.

Don't like to listen to post match interviews, however that's not a great line.

After hearing that, I now know that he should not have got the job. When Dorrans was at Dundee he looked poor, why did we sign him. The young lad from Dundee Utd gave away goals against Dumbarton and Stenhousemuir, Pybus was not a superstar. I could go on and on about most of his signings, but the positions that he is making some of the players play in is criminal. I remember Pars TV having to edit his after match after beating Alloa at EEP. If he speaks like that to the players in the dressing room it will come to a point when they won't want to play for him.

I think that point has already been reached. Coming out with no captain at half time. Abysmal

I’m not really going to take tonight’s game with any weight. They are far superior both financially and depth of playing squad.

The thing for me is lessons need to be learned, going on that showing we certainly do not deserve to be playing at premiership level. I felt our manager fed us to the wolves by trying to play usual tactics which have so far been extremely ineffective.

If this form continues to another Raith pounding then we’re screwed. Falling so far away so early is soul destroying in a season where we sent our message out that we would be aiming for number 1 spot.

Leave the players aside for one moment. What has Peter Grant learned from the last three games? We have scored 2 goals and lost 10. He is playing a back three that can`t tackle a fish supper. What great wisdom has he discerned from that to take into our next fixture?

I don't know about players 'hurting'. If you are a professional in anything it means every day you have to turn up and do the best job you can irrespective of the challenges you face. The display was embarrasing to watch.

What a difference from the Celtic cup match 2 seasons ago, different manager, different tactics and players who fought for every ball.

The saying `be careful what you wish for` comes to mind, all the fans wanting Crawford out, he would never have set up his team like that or indeed have signed the players Grant has. He knew when something was wrong and tried something different at least. Grant insists on playing the players he signed and ignoring the others unsure if this is down to sheer arrogance or not.

Yes that Celtic game we played well but what about the rest of the season under Crawford dire let's not forget that.

Crawford is gone anyway so why do folk feel the need to keep dragging him into the conversation

He at least tried to change things and not play players week in week out that should never wear a pars shirt.

As soon as I saw the draw I wrote this game off as a humping and pretty meaningless. Extra cash in the coffers. But this could well dent our confidence for weeks to come.


You could well be proved right, but last time we went to Ibrox at this stage in the LC, I think we lost 6-0 and the following week end we beat ICT 5-1 at EEP.



Not your average Sunday League player.

Last night was reality check time.

Best side in the country over past year or so, at home v mediocre 2nd tier opposition.

Compounded by Rangers three recent defeats which had them focused - we were never going to get anything at Ibrox, as predicted by most.

Never understood why any fans could think otherwise.

"“The supporters are hurting? What about the players?

“They are hurting — and they should be.

“If they weren’t hurting after that, they wouldn’t be playing for me, that’s for sure.

“I hope they are hurting and I hope they are suffering. There’s a face you can put on — but hurting means really learning from it.”

Grant added: “I feel for the fans because they come to support the team and we didn’t give them a chance. We can only apologise. I don’t care if it’s at Ibrox — we should be much better.”


"I think he was meaning the players better be hurting as he went on to say if they werent they wouldnt be playing for him"

yep agree Rigger Al.

Must’ve missed it last season when Crawford was the tactical mastermind some are claiming here, was his idea of changing it up having a centre back and a 36 year old right back as his midfield pairing. Maybe we should stop comparing the two managers and just admit both look as hopeless as each other
