 Pybus
Topic Originator: Milos Drizzle  
Date:   Sun 17 Oct 12:06

Thought he had another great game, albeit was hooked early (was he ill?). Just seems an honest, hard-working player that doesn't make too many mistakes. And when he does, he battles to make amends. Seemed to be everywhere yesterday, including one great run onto the box as we broke down the wings. I know he may not be technically too gifted, but I'm really warming to this player.

Peter Grant in his post-match comments yesterday said he was sick before the game but still played. He said he was sick six times on the pitch during the game. I agree with you Milos. While not technically the most gifted player, he works so hard and gives everything. You can`t ask any more from anyone but to do their best, and for me he does that.

Looked like he was going to be sick in the park too? Certainly didn’t look right.

If that’s the case do we not have a duty to either not play him or take the player off the moment he doesn’t look right, leaving him to be sick six times doesn’t sound right to me.

Got a mention on `Off the Ball` this afternoon. Nice to get some good publicity for a change! 😊

It looks like neither Dorrans nor Cole was available which may be why Pybus started.

His first few games I thought he was absolutely dreadful and should never wear a Pars shirt again.
How wrong was I?
Since the Inverness game he has been outstanding and would now be my first name on the teamsheet.
I thought he was taken off yesterday cause he was on a yellow and manager didn't want to risk him getting sent off. If he was sick and still played that well then we'll done him

Not disputing that he runs around allot, he certainly does. However his lack of quality on the ball is a pretty big problem when he plays in centre midfield.

Our centre midfield has been our biggest problem this season, calling anyone who's played there consistently "outstanding", doesn't sit right with me tbf.

I have been at every home game and Pybus has been good in all of them. Can't understand the dislike some on here have for him. He is a Gary Mason type of player, does the hard graft and non flashy stuff and works as hard as anyone in that team. Fully deserves his place in the team

^^^^ This. He doesn't seem to create much and only Docherty of Partick has picked up more yellows this season so he needs to be careful. But I don't think he's done too badly at all. Some had made their mind up about him before he'd even worn a Pars shirt.

Our fans read too much into the QoS views on him when we signed him. Most said he’s not the most technical but a grafter and I think that’s what we’re seeing. I thought him and Paul Allan done very well yesterday, especially the latter, he’s very neat and tidy and always wants the ball.

Quick google shows he was wanted by Dundee who topped our league and Ross County in the premier league last January. His decision to turn down his contract offer at QOTS…..nowhere does it say he’s not good enough for them

Had interest from England and Ireland before joining us in the summer. Every side needs a total grafter like him. He’d be the first to say he’s not the most technically gifted player but him doing the dirty work should allow the more technically gifted players to do their jobs.

I’m really glad things have turned for him after his “slow” start. Think he can be a real asset for us and would be keen to see him and Wilson play in the middle.

Both players quite happy to do the dirty work and it could allow the wingers more freedom to playmake

I wouldn't want a player playing whilst sick but it shows some determination to get on that pitch and go for it. It sounds like a few others have been playing with niggles. I wouldn't want anyone doing any harm to themselves, but it suggests the players haven't given up on Grant.

Pybus surely isn't getting compared to Gary Mason? While Gary Mason worked hard he was also a very good footballer, you don't play as many games in the Premier as much as Mason did by being as limited on the ball as Pybus is.

OK, in comparison to Mason

-He's a centre midfielder



... And that's about it.

The comparison to Geggan is a bit more relevant, however if I were to compare him to Pars players of yesteryear I'd go for Jamie Mole.

Both players who absolutely run themselves into the ground, however they're like a speedboat without a driver with the throttle stuck on, fair covering the miles but their influence is pretty neglible really.

I appreciate the effort he puts in, but it's a position we'd need to improve on if we've got aspirations of a title challenge.

By that logic it's best to pass absolutely no opinions on anything in life ever, it's pretty rare to be the holder of every fact with regards to a decision.

This forum would die a death pretty quickly as would any discussion pertaining to football.

If I were to go to a restaurant and get served a meal that didn't taste very nice, would you be placed to complain on it? I'm not a chef, I don't know what a chef does with regards to making a dish special but likewise I have taste buds, I know if something tastes bad.

With football, no I don't know our budget, I don't know how much money we have with regards to scouting, I don't have an account with wyscout where I can pull up a list of players, and even if I did I don't know them personally to know what their contract demands would be.

However I've got eyes, I can watch Pybus and say roughly what I think his abilities of a player are relative to a Scottish championship side. Same as everyone else on the thread, it's not that deep.

No one on this thread knows his contract for example, Raymie has said 800, is that how much Raymie thinks he's worth? What if he was on 2 grand a week? Would we still consider him to be worth it? On the other end of the scale while I don't massively rate him, if he was on sub 500 quid a week he'd be fantastic value! Again though, I didn't consider the conversation to be that deep.

Grant, I`ve no idea what he is on but I`m pretty sure the average for the squad is circa £800 - some will be on more and some will be on less?
I`d imagine Pybus would be at the lower end of the scale, taking into account his previous clubs and standing in the game, therefore, he seems to be a decent enough acquisition?
There are more talented players out there, but I`m not sure they would come here for that kind of salary?

I`ve been watching the Pars for nearly 40 years. We`ve had our fair share of absolutely terrible` lightweight, ineffective midfielders.

To be honest I`d never heard of him & I read what fans of other clubs, particularly QOS, thought of him when he signed & feared the worst. He`s nowhere near as bad as some are making him out to be & with the right midfield partner (hopefully Paul Allen) he`ll only improve. He`s in there to do a certain job & so far he`s doing it well.

Bit presumptuous of us to think that though! You could argue that if he's played his cards right and realised we were light on centre mid he could've commanded more? There's allot that goes into determin a players worth.

I prefer Wilson, Allan and Dorrans in the middle as things stand.

I missed the Killie game where he seems to have played well, although I found Socks post on the match thread about us looking poor without the ball quite interesting.

Got my fingers very much crossed that he has a good game against Partick. Playing them then Rovers in the form they're in, doesn't get much tougher.

Played out wide a bit aswell, he was physically good, decent size and OK pace to go with it, and strength, seemed to never tire and run all game! The drama came when he actually got the ball tbf.

That's why I compared him to Pybus, who in the games I've seen him his main attribute is his quite fantastic work rate, much like it was Moles greatest quality.

I don't see the similarities with Mason at all, who while being a defensively minded centre mid was a very intelligent footballer who was tidy on the ball, from what I remember anyway. And that's not how I'd describe Pybus. I'd love a Gary Mason type player in the team, from little I've seen I think Allan is far more similar to Mason.

Sadly I've seen most Pars games this season, that was only the second one I've missed.

Fwiw I'm not saying Pybus is awful, it just seems I don't rate him nearly as highly aso others on the thread, we're bottom of the table without a win this season, I'm sure most would agree that centre midfield is a problem? Calling one of the consistent starters in there outstanding (or any player outstanding so far this season) just seemed odd to me, likewise comparing him to Gary Mason. I just don't see the similarities between those players at all.

All people are saying is that he played well on Saturday and is a wee bit better than the absolute dud the P&B collective described him as when he signed.

If you'd ever played football at any level you'd know playing with better players who are playing with a bit of confidence brings out the best in you too.

What's utterly bizarre is your refusal to accept what most folk on here are saying. He had a good game on Saturday.

He's a small, energetic holding midfielder. His range of passing is relatively limited, but he's good positionally, has a good first touch and tends to find a Pars player with a pass.

I think it's perfectly reasonable to say he does a similar job to the one Gary Mason did. We'll agree that he's not in the same class.

Jamie Mole was hopeless. It was obvious he was never going to score for us.

I thought his best game was against Hamilton. He was everywhere. Boundless energy, broke up many attacks and got forward to support a good few times. Was my MOM that day

Reminded me more of Alex Burke but one of those guys who is under appreciated with what he does and you'd notice how much we miss him if he wasn't playing.

Not that the bar has been set very high at all by the others but he's probably been the most impressive of Grant's signings so far.

Surely no! His legs were well gone by the time he got to us.

He totally won me over once he got moved inside, he'd been a winger most of his career and Macca played him out on the left and he looked pretty awful. McIntyre moved him inside and he was brilliant at times and a joy to watch, used to drop deep in midfield to instigate moves, lovely player.


Some goal at Dens.

If you'd ever played football at any level you'd know playing with better players who are playing with a bit of confidence brings out the best in you too.


Don't think we can say that when we are where we are tbh.

And I must be missing something as well, I replied saying that he hasn't been outstanding, because he hasn't. And then disputed the comparisons to Gary Mason, even aside from the quality comparisons they are very different players.

It seems there can't be a middle ground on here, you either need to wax lyrical or condemn, utterly bizarre.

How's that bizarre? I didn't see the game FFS, I can neither disagree or agree with people's view of the game on Saturday.

Yep, when Burkey moved into midfield, we benefited from his game intelligence

So you think he's played better in a previous game for us? That's promising.

Jamie Mole was awful for us, with pretty much no redeeming features as a football player. The one strong memory I have of him is playing in the semi final against Falkirk, and having a game on a par with Gary Dempsey`s infamous shocker at Inverness. I don`t see a likeness there at all.

I don`t think his style is simlar to Gary Mason`s either, as he`s more likely to get forward into good attacking positions than Mason ever was. Gary Mason is probably my favourite Pars player ever, but supporting the attack was not his thing.

The Andy Geggan likeness is probably the best.

I`ve mentioned Pybus quite a few times in my summaries of games over the last 6 weeks or so, all of them in a positive sense. My view of him hasn`t changed very much - he`s a limited player with a good attitude and good work ethic and the good bits of his game have usually outweighed his limitations. I don`t think he`s ever been outstanding but he`s been our best midfield player this season by some distance. Given how bad some of the others have been that maybe isn`t saying a lot, but to look OK given what`s sometimes been around him, and some of the utterly ridiculous systems we played early in the season, says that he`s done OK. That awful day at Ayr, I looked around all the players in the team towards the end of the game and there was only one in our team who was still looking for the ball with no hint of hiding or becoming dispirited. Guess who. That said a lot for me about his character as a player.

A player like that is probably more noticable in a struggling team. When you`re playinjg well, the more flashy players will stand out more but when it`s not going well and those players just aren`t dong it, that kind of graft and effort can get you through a game. I`m glad he`s been playing for my team in recent weeks.

Burke was far more cultured on the ball and far less mobile.

There was a lovely interview with Burke after we won the title and it really seemed to mean allot to him, wish I could find it again.

Jamie Mole was an awful player for us. I can only assume he made it through to first team football on account of being a big lump, and fairly strong. A poor striker, although I heard Moles best position was in the hole.
Pybus is okay, it's possible Peter Grant will see a lot of himself in him though, a limited player that works hard. He might be able to develop him into a solid enough midfielder

Would enjoy 4-3-3 when Wilson comes back with Wighton up top. O Hara rotating wide with the three wingers to give us 4 genuine options out wide and Dorrans and Allan rotating in the middle. Reece Cole - the less said the better. Absolute nothing player

That's a good shout in that Grant might see a bit of himself in there.

Ultimately I always have the view that other than the Masterton golden overdraft era, all players for DAFC are going to be fundamentally limited in some sense so you might as well get on with it and support them with a glass half full view, especially if they're on the young side. Unless they're totally rotten to the core like Simmons.

... Simmons could've been fantastic, talented footballer. Had a really good spell when McIntyre took over and got offered a contract, and then rejected it.

He always seemed to run the show when he played for Alloa against us, very annoying.

Agree with Raymie. Thought the Hamilton game was his best so far. Done well on Saturday at time was surprised he was subbed but made sense if he was ill, certainly didn't show. A player that seems to be improving weekly. Settling into new surroundings. Some of the improvements maybe point back to being late in bringing players in than we would have liked?

When he was subbed, I noticed that he was walking slowly and went straight to the changing room.
