The squad isn’t good enough.

We played 3 players today that have come through the youth ranks that should be out on loan in league 2 but due to PG signings they are the best we have.

The appointment of PG has been an absolute disaster that could impact on our club for several years.

PG signings have been a shocking, only Dorrans gets a start.

It`s not just Grant signings that are the problem. Crawford also signed players who are not good enough. Wighton for example is a waste of a jersey. Yogi has undoubtedly been left with a poor squad. All the more reason therefore to play the best that he has at his disposal. That to me means Gasputis for Breen, Pybus and Kennedy for Allan and Todd, and Todorov for McCann. I am not saying these guys are great, but we are currently relying on youngsters to get us out of a relegation battle when we need experience. It was men against boys once again today. If we play the best we have and bolster the team with a few good signings, we may have a fighting chance. If we persist with what we had today, we are down.

The general consensus when Wighton and Todorov signed was that they would guarantee us goals. Our forward line isn`t the issue.

Our midfield is utterly non existent.

Sorry to say we need to bin the young guys and bring in experience.

Totally agree. And McCann has done more in the last month than Todorov has all season.

No general concensus I my direction that Wighton, Todorov or O`Hara, for that matter, will ever guarantee anything, least of all goals. Wighton has no ball control, Todorov has no pace and O`Hara has neither. Good forwards can inspire the whole team and nothing does that to better effect than sticking the ball in the net, something that all three have signally failed to do.

What a load of nonsense. How many clear-cut chances have we missed this year? The issue is creating chances, we have the players that can finish chances.

Have to agree with DBA !!
How many chances or clear cut chances do we make in games ?
Very little at all due to our midfield being too far back and not supporting the forwards , If you don`t deliver decent balls in to the box we have no chance of scoring , it`s glaring where we have the problem !! and it is certainly not the Forwards

He’s inherited a total sh1tshow, recruitment is by far the biggest factor in how well the team performs and in my opinion he needs at the very least the next two windows to put his stamp on the team. The guys only in the door and will still be working out who the duds are and the very few that are capable at this level. Cut him slack and give him time.

Good forwards can make chances by their ball skills, pace and positioning. Balls bounce off our forwards and they don`t compliment each other by forming good partnerships. Admittedly the supply chain is somewhat lacking but I just don`t see the latent skill in our forwards.

Yogi needs to start picking the best players available. Not playing guys like o’hara who’s our top scorer seems stupid to me. The experiment with McCann, Todd and Allan needs to stop, they just aren’t ready for this level yet. Gasputis is miles better than breen yet can’t get a game for some reason, think a potential fallout there. Without Dom Thomas we are absolutely awful to watch, and even when he’s in the team, he’s the only one capable of actually creating something

It looks like yogi is trying to push the higher earners out by just refusing to play them unless he absolutely has to.

It feels like he’s handicapping us now in the hope of shifting one or 2 next month.

Dangerous strategy with a team getting pumped most weeks and the youngsters being shown up every week getting their confidence shot to bits.

We are not in a false position in the league that`s for sure.
I`m not quite sure why O`Hara in particular has been frozen out and we`re relying on a youngster with little experience.
This transfer window is going to define our whole season. Midfield positions are absolutely crucial.

Apart from yesterday we`ve been in most games under Yogi. I`d rather he play the kids who work hard that wage thief`s like Pybus, Todorov and Wilson until we get some replacements.

I hate the term `wage thief` being applied to professional footballers. The three guys named haven`t lacked effort when they`ve played and, if they haven`t been picked, it`s likely to be due to a change of manager or, in Wilson`s case, through injury. `Wage thief` is one of these lazy phrases some fans love to use when they don`t rate somebody.

I`m not seeing us being pumped most weeks to be fair. And most of that post is pure speculation.

Surely if that was his train of thought Dorrans wouldn`t be in the squad?

Calling Pybus a wage thief is pretty disgusting. The guy busts a gut when he plays - and did so when he was ill until he was being physically sick.

He`s not the new Edgar Davids but he puts a shift in every time.

There`s no need to describe any of the squad as wage thieves, you can be annoyed about mistakes and people not playing well. It`s not a lack of effort, it`s a mixture of a lack of quality, players not being used properly and a lack of confidence.

In the immediate aftermath of a fairly insipid performance a few folk are saying the whole team is rubbish. Realistically it could probably be a decent team with less than 11 improved replacements, my thoughts would be around 4, but that is a tall order for any manager especially in the January window. I hope if we do any business it`s early on in the month not on the 31st.

As for Sergio and H57, you agree that the fans lockout is probably the final straw for you. When will we know if it is or it isn`t?

Can’t imagine there’s a pars fan out there who isn’t both disillusioned and depressed at the level/quality of our performances and, consequently, our position in the league this season.

Personally, I don’t see this as something that’s just suddenly happened; under both AJ and SC, I’ve seen us go from top of league around Christmas to “also-rans” by the end of the season. Even a year ago we were more than holding our own against Hearts and generally better than Dundee.

At the beginning of the season, we were being rated as title contenders.

What JH is saying is pretty much spot-on; we are being turned over by more streetwise teams and we’re giving away far too many cheap goals.

I think there is a general lack of quality present in “professional” footballers in Scotland; a couple of years ago the mighty Rangers were knocked out of Europe by the 4th best team from Luxembourg. And, what Arbroath are currently demonstrating is what I reckon is an unpleasant truth .... there are probably dozens of part-time teams from all over Europe who would survive very comfortably in the Scottish Premiership.

So where does that leave us? Again, I do believe what JH says is true; the players need to get back to doing the basics right, work for each other .... on top of that, they need to be organised and motivated, and that is up to JH to sort out.

Again personally, I’m not really interested in how great they are doing at training. And I also get it, part-time Arbroath have also turned over Kilmarnock, Inverness and Patrick away from home .... so to a casual observer it wouldn’t have been a big surprise to see them beat us 3-0, again. But JH says just shouting at the players won’t help ....
I kinda disagree there, if you want to be a professional football player, then you shouldn’t be out-played, out-worked and out-smarted by part-timers. Some of our (full-time) professionals need a good shake; if for nothing else, because their current performance levels will be condemning them to lower league football for the remainder of their careers.

Rant over.

At the start of the season I was very confident that we would be at the top of the league challenging for promotion. When compared with the player pools of other teams I thought we had a strong pool of players! But unfortunately despite a promising start in the League Cup it all went pear shaped at the start of the league campaign. That got me thinking about the season past. We made a great start, mainly due to the Thomas dead ball deliveries providing lots of goals for the Centre Back now with Kilmarnock. Declan McManus also contributed with a few goals. But teams got wise to the way we played and our season fizzled out. Let’s hope the Manager gets a chance in the window to add a bit of experience and make us more difficult to beat. It’s an incredibly hard league with teams on the day all capable of winning games. An 8th place or better finish should be the target.

It`s easy to decide who our `best players` are from behind a keyboard but it`s not so easy in the real world. O`Hara`s got a bit of pace and is a decent penalty-box finisher but, if you`re weak in midfield and decide to play a lone striker, he`s obviously not an option for that position.

Wilson`s been injured all the time Yogi`s been in charge so he`s not an option for him either.

Not so easy in the real world? Well funnily enough I actually watch the games and form an opinion from that, it’s quite clear that we have better options sitting on the bench than we do starting the games right now

Do you also watch the players attitude, effort and performance in training 4 days a week?

I think Yogi sees a lot more of the players than you do for 90mins on a Saturday to make a judgement.

Let's just get Ross McArthur to select the best 11 players and play each game like that, who needs a manager.

Can see a few red cards getting handed out from admin. I’m usually quite thick skinned but some of the comments directed towards myself are quite hurtful



😂 I wouldn’t hold your breath. Two posters in particular on this forum can pretty much be abusive and dismissive, but never get picked up on it.

Watched a recent programme about Sergio aguero about when he arrived at city, they said he was a terrible trainer but in the games he came alive and we all knew how good he turned out to be.

Yogi is picking the same team now as when he first arrived, it’s clearly not about how well the youngsters are training and it certainly isn’t about how well they are playing.

I’d rather have a team full of players capable of doing it on game day then the hardest trainers you’ll ever see but ultimately are not good enough.

Things will be looking up……..now yogi is gone!

Mental health is a very important subject and anyone claiming they have it should be taken seriously as we have no idea how bad they can be. How can you just brush it off as a wind up, especially if you`re claiming to take care of serval people with mental health issues (fair play if that`s the case)

Totally out of order accusing Sergio (who I don`t know) of faking mental health. How does anyone know how someone is feeling? Got form for it though. On the post about Jones he accuses posters of sympathetic crap for offering help. We`ve got great guys like Eddie Martin trying to promote good mental health then there`s posts like that.

Parrot also posted on the thread about my mental health and this might be why he assumed Sergio is not being truthful. That was my initial thoughts too if I`m being honest. I waited a few hours to think about it and reassessed that initial feeling and am prepared to give the benefit of the doubt.

None of that is true.

Some of you guys really dont read posts carefully.

In the previous post you refer to I was calling out folk who respond empathetically to threads about mental health then have no qualms abusing players, rendering their supposed empathy pointless. Something Sergio does with aplomb.
You have completely misrepresented the issue here. What I said had absolutely nothing to do with the good work done by many.

I don't see why being a Christian or not has anything to do with calling out someone for using a fake claim of suffering from mental health in an attempt to discredit someone else.

It's great that you guys are genuinely trying to support him but his posts historically do not reflect mental health. On the contrary, he exudes confidence. The timing and demeanour of his claim are also suspect.

Now if I am correct shame on him.

If I am wrong then He will get the most heartfelt and sincere apology in the history of apologies and I hope he takes up the offer of help from the well meaners coming to his defence.

So Sergio you have offers of help which I hope you respond to and If I am wrong, I hope you accept my apology.
If I am not wrong and you have just gone too far on this occasion, I hope you are decent enough to admit the error and we can all move on.

I would say they prove I am right. "First one to play the mental health catd wins" indeed Sergio. That is precisely why I accused you of being on the wind up.

What`s so bad about that? It refers to a certain job in the recent past that`s still a sore point for some. In response, Parrot posted:

It made me smile, but it is below the belt or, to be more precise - one in the groin. If it had been said to me I`d probably have fumed a bit, then tried to think of a suitably cutting response. I think I could manage that, but I`m not out to inflame the situation. After all, what`s on dotnet I`ve been told, is only banter. One thing that helps me is that I don`t bother to remember who`s had a go at me. I just read a post and if I want to respond to it I do, whoever it is - without fear or favour - unlike real life!

It made me smile, but it is below the belt or, to be more precise - one in the groin. If it had been said to me I`d probably have fumed a bit, then tried to think of a suitably cutting response. I think I could manage that, but I`m not out to inflame the situation. After all, what`s on dotnet I`ve been told, is only banter. One thing that helps me is that I don`t bother to remember who`s had a go at me. I just read a post and if I want to respond to it I do, whoever it is - without fear or favour - unlike real life!


Not really, and I dont hold grudges.
He had one of his goes at the board and I used his comment regarding mates for a bit light hearted humour.
He went well over the top with his response and foolishly tried to make me look bad by claiming he was deeply wounded and had MH issues.
I suggested he was on the wind up, due to his previous comments, highlighted by Sif a few posts back.

Some folk defended him as they were concerned he was being sincere.
I expected precisely the response you said you would have provided but I got pelters. Most of it based on false information.

His regular style on here is to make controversial statements then wait for responses, sit back and enjoy the show. That is what he has done here too.

Sorry for the comments I made to you back in March SIF. I was drinking that much back then I can’t even recall tbh. I suppose this is karma paying me back now for those horrendous comments. I really am quite unwell at the moment , my life seems so utterly pointless. I’m going to leave the forum and will return when I feel better. Thank you all for your concern.

Now that seemed sincere.

Lets turn a negative into a positive.
I apologise for doubting you and I hope , now that you have crossed the bridge and opened up, you will be able to accept the help offered by several people on here.

Perhaps this incident was what you needed to open up.

For my part, I will take the advice of several posters on here and be more cautious.

I did think you were trolling and it angered me.
I hope you dont leave the forum. As you can see, there are many people on here who care and this forum can be a very good place to come for friendship, despite all of our deficiencies.

Hopefully now this will have a happy ending.

Take care.

Well said. Good post from Parrot. Also glad Sergio apologised and encourage Sergio to seek help. No need to suffer alone.

Without wishing to be trite. A wonderful Christian man, who was my first boss, told me when I was going through a very dark time that there would be light at the end of the tunnel. He was right. Thirty years later I watched as his coffin was lowered into his grave. For him I knew there was light even through the darkest tunnel.

Doesn’t hold grudges / uses comment made 9 months ago as defence of abhorrent comments on someone’s mental health. This place is a cesspit sometimes (and ‘sometimes’ is increasing in frequency).

Well as usual that isn`t what happened at all.


The matter was resolved, old wounds were healed and friendships strengthened because we addressed an issue.

Everyone involved is getting along fine and for some reason you decide to re-open the thread, contribute nonsense and call it a cesspit.
We were doing fine until you put your oar in and started what may now decend into a cesspit.
Maybe time to close the thread.

The state of mental health care in this country is a disgrace and this place doesn`t help.

It`s not so long ago that casual homophobia was common and openly accepted here, and we are still regaled with the views of old white men telling us why we shouldn`t have women as referees.

And then there`s the aforementioned articles. Those were very telling about the attitudes of the site admin and how it is overseen.

It is little wonder that at least two posters have said that they have had their mental health negatively impacted by their experience using this website. That`s in this one thread alone. There have been others through the years.

Although I suppose that this site is just a reflection of the attitudes that exist in society still despite the fact that they more properly belong in 1973.

As an old white man I suppose I should defend 1973. The PM of the UK at that time was presumed to be homosexual, which was alluded to of course in bar room comments, but it did not stop him becoming PM. In these allegedly more enlightened times, I am not sure that could be the case today.

There was full employment in 1973 and not a food bank in sight. So it wasn`t quite the dark ages of Tory propaganda. Football was much cheaper to watch as well.

What people say in public is not always what they think. Websites like this offer a public platform where people can be more open about their attitudes, to put in words what was once confined to bar room debate. That is not a licence to be offensive or to slander people, so there are moderators to filter out such comments. I think they do a good job, despite frequent calls to issue yellow and red cards.

PARrot - did my last post on here make clear my thoughts for you? You seemed to have difficulty grasping my point and I note haven’t responded further. Maybe you’d like to admit you had read it wrong and maybe take time to apologise for misunderstanding?

You know, except from the facts the mods hosted openly bigoted articles on their website for a sustained period and then made excuses when called out.

Seeing as it was illegal to be homosexual in 1973 Sammer, I’m not sure that’s worth defending….!

Wasn`t much fun to be anything other than a straight white male in 1973.

Seems that a lot of people in glass houses are throwing the most stones. Parrot has been pretty fair it seems to me. When he realised that perhaps he had misjudged the situation he came forward immediately with an apology. To prolong this by bringing patently unfair accusations does no good to anyone. Time to let the matter lie and let the healing process take its course.

Should make it clear that my posts haven`t been directed at any individual but were more about the general tone of the site.

Apologies if that didn`t come across and it certainly wasn`t intended to single out any individual(s) for criticism.

Wotsit,

You have a bit more to answer than you would wish.

As an `old white man` I still have the capacity to call out your feeble knowledge of history. The horror is this: homosexuals and female supporters were part of the North Enclosure at EEP in 1973, the year that seems to give you the fits. You ae nor even defending your own supporters.

Why does 1973 give you such alarm? ? Are you are a Tory? The narrowest gap between rich and poor ever recorded? Is that the problem?

Only on dotnet can suggesting the 70s was a crap time for the LGBTQIAPK community result in someone being accused of being a Tory 😂

Edited - don't believe this is an offensive term (it's used by an LGBTQIAPK member of my team) but edited in case people are offended.

If I must. It is so far back now it doesn`t matter anymore.
I fully understand that you didn`t mean to infer that I was one of the two people your post referred to.
That doesnt change the fact that you still have my name at the top of your post and it therefore appears you could be referring to me.
I asked perfectly politely if you would simply delete my name but that is obviously too much for you.
If you can`t make the small effort to do something so simple in order to appease someone, what on earth makes you think you deserve an apology.

Thanks for nothing.

Have a great new year anyway.

Shame you’ve chosen to be like that, but ultimately everyone sees your true colours. Not my fault you can’t see how quoting on this site works, but good to see how rattled you get because you cant handle it when you’re challenged.

Expecting just to be appeased rather than admit you were wrong. Thankfully not everyone thinks appeasement is a good method…

How strange.

You keep coming back to this rather than just dealing with it, and requesting me to respond when I would rather leave it after so long, but I am the one who is rattled.

I don't feel rattled, and certainly not challenged.

Happy new year to you bud. Chill out and spend some time with your nearest and dearest.
