There in body, and spirit, today - birthday drinkypoos in Legends pre match if anyone fancies it (mine’s a full fat Coca Cola, ta) (the diet starts the morn).

My prediction ~ 3-0

**From Club Twitter ~ “Prior to kick off we will be holding our traditional Remembrance Ceremony. Supporters are encouraged to be in their seats by 2.55pm”**

Mon the Pars!

In this crazy league - and considering the half-time score - I call that a good result. We had more possession, twice the number of shots, twice the number of shots on target and half the foul count. We may not be the finished product but McPake’s definitely got things moving in the right direction.

We seem to really struggle at home for some reason I don`t think we`ve scored in the first half at home in a league game.

Seem far more relaxed away from home scoring more goals.

Edwards didn`t look fit in my opinion.

Really frustrating that we aren`t able to make more than 2 subs in a game maybe 1 fresh player in the last 15 or after the equaliser pushes you on for the win.

Thought Kane done OK in the second half.

Two points at home against the bottom 2 not really good enough

This result has been coming for weeks. We haven`t been great we have just grided out results. That alone can only get you so far. There was no quality today. Why isn`t mochrie in the scotland u21s ? Anyone who watched him today will see why. Clyde will be gutted to walk away with 1 point today.

Wrong starting lineup today . Mahon was very poor. Ritchie-Hosler however is a tidy wee player and needs to figure more. Worst performance of the season from Edwards, sold both goals and consistently poor crossing. Comrie guilty of the same. Chalmers also shocking. McPake got the starting lineup wrong but again, brave enough to change it. Hamilton was a miss. Bene is our new Norrie. Why can`t we play the first half the way we play the second? We allow teams to gain belief that they can get something.
Finally, ref was rotten again.

Really? Don’t think he could do much about the two terrible goals we gave away.

He made a great save at the end to get us a point. Think he has been pretty good so far this season.

Mahon looked like he had never seen a football before. Kane did more in five minutes than he did in 45. Mochrie was was very poor. They all were really. Only pass marks for me were for Bene and Mehmet.

Todd was anonymous mostly, think he needs a rest as some others do to but that’s the problem with a small squad, players sometimes lose their mojo and can benefit from a couple of games on the bench. Personally I would have brought A Tod on for the last 10 mins or so.

Abysmal performance but we are still top and a win next week is a must as we have a few difficult games on the horizon that we are going to have to play a whole lot better to get points from.

We have no creativity other than Mochrie so we struggle at home as teams sit deep and hit us on the counter and we don’t even look like breaking them down in open play.
Some honking performances, could’ve subbed practically anyone at half time.

You missed out Mochrie. We keep playing a formation to fit this guy in the team and he offers nothing. He’s lazy, doesn’t track back and needs a good kick up the backside

if you look at our stats for our home Games we have won 4 and have drawn 4 = 8 points dropped at home and also lost 7 goals compared to losing only 1 game and 2 goals away from home
If we were as bad as everyone says We just need to accept the point and move on
But the downside of this is we have allowed The Falkirk to get 2 points closer

I am disappointed about the result today but not surprised the way things went because I cannot think of a game at home this season where we were comfortable and played decent football it seems it is only the second half in home games that we waken up,
Onwards to next week at Peterhead and here`s hoping we do better than the last time we played them

Our lack of creativity shows more at home as generally, teams set up to frustrate.

Lots of problems today, aside from the two goals we gave away.

Why are we so slow in our build up during the first half of games ?
We spent really have anyone other than Mochrie and Chalmers who can play a vertical pass at times.

The movement of our two strikers leaves a lot to be desired. Ok, crosses were by and large poor, but the don’t move to the ball, make front or far post runs or drag defenders out of position.

Todd was anonymous today. Aside from a shot first half, he didn’t get beyond the front two at any time.

Mahon has no chance of getting a game at Motherwell based on that 45 mins.
Macdonald struggles when he plays high up the pitch. Not really his fault.
Edwards as bad as I have seen him this season. Comrie did ok defensively.

Fisher was ok but guilty of losing cheap possession which was a problem for the team generally and meant we were never a ale to sustain any pressure.

We need a bit of quality in January or fear we will be caught by the six fingered lot

The way we`ve played at home so far this season, a result like this was always going to come. There hasn`t been a single game we have been outright the better team and looked comfortable. For some reason we have saved all our best performances for our away games. Luckily we had the two penalties (both compete acts of stupidity from the Clyde players) because we didn`t look like scoring from open play. To fail to beat a team at home who have lost their last 11 games in the league is embarrassingly poor for a team of our calibre.

Hosler was our best player in the second half. He constantly moved about wanting the ball and tried to make things work. We looked static up front. Far too many players sticking together and not spreading out on the box when a cross came in. We miss O`Hara for games like this to hassle the defenders (like Jordan Allan did today for Clyde). The one thing I don`t get is why we keep everyone back defending corners against teams like Clyde when we`re 2-0 down! It`s infuriating!

The plus point is we are 5 points clear at the top of the league without being excellent. I just hope we can improve later on in the season and bring some more quality into the squad. Some players looked knackered near the end but McPake does not want to bring the youngsters on in place of them. I don`t understand that but I`m sure McPake will have his reasons.

The defining moment of today’s game was the inexplicable error by Edwards which gifted them a 2 goal lead. Uphill battle after that and trying to force things that lead to errors. We actually did well to come back into the game.

Can`t see the criticism of Chalmers, he and Mehmet have been two of our best this season. Today not his best game, but he was available, dropped back to cover a lot (not something we`ve seen a lot) and played plenty decent passes, some off too.

Our front 2 Todorov in particular to were leaden today though, other games not.

We`ve a tight squad so will get days like this. And we got a point ....

Not at our best today. We do lack that wee bit of genius to create scoring chances. Craig Wighton hit the post with a header. If that had gone in we might just have got a bit of confidence. Sadly I was sitting in front of the world`s worst moaning git in the Norrie. Kind of spoiled the day a bit. Glad I`m back home watching the Newcastle game.

Have to agree about Chalmers. Heard a few grumbles from folk today about him. Some folk just need to have a scape goat.

Even when things don`t quite work he never hides and still looks for the ball. If there`s a space in front of him he tends to drive forward with the ball, doesn`t look for a sideways/backward pass.

Noticed every time he received the ball in the first half Ray Grant (who was very good today) was on him like a rash. Duffy obviously realised his threat.

Jordan Allan was really impressive today.

Thought our team selection was all wrong and the whole defense looked rattled every time they came forward. Maybe missing a Hamilton.

After the first half I`ll take that. We find it difficult when teams sit in like Clyde done today. Edwards had a shocker today. Chalmers was good. Mahon was terrible. Hosler done ok when he came on.

We are going to drop points throughout the season but we are still 5 points clear. Move on to next week.

line up was fine, the set up was wrong first half which you could say after most of the home games this season, added with far too many players having an off day (putting it mildly) to get a point out of it you take it and run.

Don’t want to stick the boot in as he didn’t really do anything wrong today but mehmet is the absolute fear in goal and in the summer we need a new goalie`


What is the point of a post like that? Should we all just pick a player at random and, regardless of his performance, say he should be replaced at the end of the season?


Didn’t realise there was a certain time period in the season were I can suggest a player isn’t good enough, sorry buddy won’t happen again…

What has he done wrong this season to justify your opinion and why choose a game where, by your own admission he did nothing wrong, to express it? I didn`t question your right to an opinion just the basis of it and the timing of it.

Let’s be honest, half that squad won’t be here come next season. Most of them were lucky they had another year from the contracts handed out last season. Most of this squad were in the championship with us and the performances are still brutal if we are being honest

Unsure how you can disagree with that. If most of them were out of contract in the summer there would’ve been a huge turnover. Its up to the clubs scouts to identify players. If you think the performances have been good this season then Jesus wept. We have so called ‘championship’ players in our squad and they are still struggling in league one

Fair enough mate, not had a good day today sorry for snapping. Less to do with what he’s done wrong this season as to be fair to him he’s done okay, it’s more that I can’t get over the shocking start to his pars career under grant, the fact most games this season he hasn’t had nearly as much to do in games as last season and in games like today he’s very unorthodox at times, which I’d rather my goalkeeper not be

Was it just me that was absolutely raging that Clyde`s first goal was allowed to stand? No mention of it and not much other complaint at the time so maybe I`m way off it, but for me Edwards did well to get his body between man and ball and was then pushed in the back. I`d expect a foul for that almost every time. Their second goal was one we`ve threatened to lose all season and something I`ve mentioned several times - a case of trying to quickly get on the attack without being aware of the danger and doing the defending first.

I`m glad to see some support for Chalmers above, as I thought exactly the same about him being the one player always looking for the ball and never hiding. He did play a number of poor passes but he was the one doing most to drive the team on in the second half and give us a chance of getting something from the game.

I don`t know if it was through choice or because of players available (given the changes, I assume the latter), but I didn`t like the balance of the team today at all. Too many attack-minded players and not enough with defensive ability.

We were probably a wee bit unlucky to be 2-0 down at half-time as we did make a couple of decent chances before half-time while it seemed Clyde scored both times they were up the park, but yet again we`ve had a first half of playing the slow stuff and got nothing from it. Maybe a bit lucky to come back for a point as Clyde defended pretty well in the second half. Sometimes gaps open up when you`re doing a lot of defending but that didn`t happen at all today. Both penalties were probably correct, but both were out of nothing. Clyde did similar to what we did at Falkirk last week, and looked very well organised defensively. Had they held out, as they looked like doing, it would be hard to say they weren`t worth the points.

Not a bad point for us in the end and perhaps a reminder that every point has to be earned. We`ve probably been slightly the better side in most games this year but there`s rarely been much in it. For me, a case of being glad of the point and hoping for better next week.

Not at our best today. We do lack that wee bit of genius to create scoring chances. Craig Wighton hit the post with a header. If that had gone in we might just have got a bit of confidence. Sadly I was sitting in front of the world`s worst moaning git in the Norrie. Kind of spoiled the day a bit. Glad I`m back home watching the Newcastle game.

Honestly I reckon Mochrie would do better as an impact sub.
He always has 10-15 mins where he dribbles well and makes clever passes that open up the opposition defence but for the rest of the game it’s almost like playing a man down.

What does Todd do, total Anonymous again , liked him when he used his pace and power when right wingback thought he’d be our box to box midfielder but has no midfield abilities, never available for pass from defence meaning everything has to come through Chalmers. The young boy Kane showed more in his first 5 mins than Todd has done in weeks

Thought that while those fouls get given, as a defender you have to be stronger and not just hope the referee bails you out if you go to ground. Came from pretty lax defending all round though. I`d have been raging if we`d scored a goal like that and it had been called back.

First penalty was a rash challenge when he wasn`t going anywhere, not convinced on the second and will have to see a different angle as it looked harsh.

Thought Mochrie was fine, he was trying a lot of neat wee interchanges but they didn`t come off. Don`t think he`s a winger that will take a man on as some think he should be doing all the time. Mahon has looked decent in his wee cameos but he and MacDonald both had stinkers in the first half and were rightly hooked. Ritchie-Hosler did OK in a similar free role to Mochrie, would be interested to see him play as an actual winger. Wighton was OK but nothing really came off for him, but Todarov never got into the game. I know it`s too big a risk but might have been worth throwing Tod on near the end.

Chalmers was showing for the ball as usual but felt he slowed things down a bit too much again. I`m not having him as player of the year as mentioned above, still think he has too many off says. Big fan of Todd though and surprised he was noted as being a bit anonymous when he was one of the few who was pressing and trying to offer an angle for a cross when we ran out of room. When the midfield is so crowded it is hard for Jim to stand out though and he didn`t have the room to burst into the box and also didn`t have the insurance policy of Hamiltok behind him.

Overall got to be happy we didn`t lose but Falkirk winning wasted our good win there somewhat. Hopefully we can get this out our system and win at Balmoor.

No, gegganpar, Charlie and Craig are much better looking than the fat gutted guy who was behind me. I think he just comes to the games to moan his face off.

The other annoying thing is that he has three pals beside him who don`t seem in the least bit interested in football and talk to each other about golf and everything else under the sun but the game being played in front of them. I keep asking myself why they have season tickets? They only come to life when there`s something to complain about.It might be time for me to look for a spare seat next to some real supporters

It`s no excuse for our performance but I think Clyde did benefit from a bit of `new manager bounce`. When you`ve lost 11 in a row you must get into a mental rut and I can imagine an old hand like Jim Duffy can breathe some life and a bit of confidence into a team. Of course if you go two goals up the effect is just enhanced. They were playing like men possessed who knew exactly what their jobs were.

Not one of our best performances. But lots of the comments on this site beggar believe. We definitely missed Hamilton in midfield today. To criticise Mark Todd is a strange one. He covers every blade of grass making runs in to space and also providing cover. We’re still top of the league.

Maybe a we bit lucky to get a point out of the game today and wouldn`t have if Mehemet hadn`t have had a very good save near the end of the match. Have to agree with another post as the defender really has to be a bit stronger for that first goal. I was always a bit worried about the match today as we always seem to struggle against the teams at the bottom of the league and also against teams who have just appointed a new manager, so please beware Pars and make sure we don`t have further disappointment in the next 2 weeks as Forfar has just appointed a new manager also.

Seeing the results today it’s going to be a strange season with the promotion spots not decided until the last two or three games. We will definitely be in the mix and with a couple of experienced players coming in at the January window (but not upsetting the obvious strong team spirit) we might pinch the number one spot. Hats off to our captain/leader today, two magnificent penalties under a wee bit of pressure! Will be interesting to see how Clyde get on v Falkirk next week? COYP

Wrong starting lineup today . Mahon was very poor. Ritchie-Hosler however is a tidy wee player and needs to figure more. Worst performance of the season from Edwards, sold both goals and consistently poor crossing. Comrie guilty of the same. Chalmers also shocking. McPake got the starting lineup wrong but again, brave enough to change it. Hamilton was a miss. Bene is our new Norrie. Why can`t we play the first half the way we play the second? We allow teams to gain belief that they can get something.
Finally, ref was rotten again.


You missed out Mochrie. We keep playing a formation to fit this guy in the team and he offers nothing. He’s lazy, doesn’t track back and needs a good kick up the backside

Yet according to some we created nothing and didn`t look like scoring from open play?

The first goal was a foul all day long and the 2nd was a bad mistake from one of our most consistent players this season.

The best thing about today was we didn`t give up even when mistakes were being made and passes misplaced. That must give the manager some comfort.

If I`m being pedantic DA, I`d say the opportunity that Wighton hit the post from wasn`t a great opportunity, and more a difficult chance that Wighton done well with, if he scored that he`d have done very well.

I would say though that towards the end of the firsf half that we had a few good chances, I think we certainly had enough to win the game, but due to our lax defence I don`t think a draw was undeserved.

You`re not going to win every game, it`s annoying, it`s not worth dwelling on.

Would we rather have drawn with Falkirk and bear Clyde? Not for me, I`m happy with where we are

Two things I noticed were that Josh Edwards didn`t have so many marauding runs today and that may have been because he might still be carrying the back injury from last week or that he wasn`t used to playing with Mahon, who got in his way a bit in the first half.

The second thing was that Joe Chalmers is excellent when the game is even paced and in a steady rhythm but when the action becomes hectic and we are in full attacking mode, as we had to be in the second half, he tended to make mistakes.

A poor performance, which didn`t warrant 3 points but probably 1 was fair. We could have gone in 1-1 at half time, Clyde`s first goal could have been disallowed, we had a few very good chances just before half time. Second half we had pressure but our crossing was largely woeful. All four goals were from needless defensive errors.

Agree with most of the above, Mehmet didn`t do anything wrong. Chalmers the only midfield player to show some drive. Todd had a few good runs from midfield but he disappears for long spells of games. Mochrie was poor today, there are times when he has space to run at a full back and he just slows the play down, at other times he dribbles when he is surrounded by opponents. Frustrating as he is a talent. Both Mahon and McDonald were dire, McDonald in fairness was excellent last weekend against Falkirk, but he is not a right winger, not in an attacking team anyway. The young lad from Rangers looked quite bright and tried to get involved second half, Todorov did absolutely nothing. Fisher was strangely poor in possession and Edwards clearly had a nightmare.

A disjointed performance overall, with lots of players struggling. We were bizarrely static, not only 1st half, at 2-2 in injury time Wighton had the ball on the edge of the box with defenders around him, he held on to it for a while but absolutely nobody made a run wide or in behind and then he was tackled, it summed us up today. Take a point and run!

Bonkers how far we’ve gone downhill when folk are saying chalmers was decent yesterday. Slower than a week in the jail, weak in the tackle or doesn’t even try to challenge like in build up to the 1st goal and zero creativity, yes he was available for a pass but only as opposition backed off, he slowed everything down and far too often it was a head down sideways pass.

As usual mochrie offers nothing for at least 90% of the game, although he is working on increasing that percentage to be fair. Might as well send Mahon back to Motherwell, the boy from rangers might do us a turn though.

A midfield of chalmers and Todd when your chasing the game? No thanks. Real lack of quality throughout the team especially on crosses, tells you quite a lot when your centre back is your penalty taker.

Hopefully yesterday focus’s a few minds in terms of January recruitment.

I honestly didn`t think we were "terrible" yesterday. Thought we started the game at a good pace and created a couple of decent chances. The first goal was a foul. The second an out of character mistake.

We didn`t fold as we may have done in the past. We worked our balls off and got would could be a crucial point come the end of the season. Yes Deniz made a good save but so did their keeper.

Singling out Chalmers is pure madness and very lazy. Yes, the guy misplaced a few passes yesterday but he never hides and is involved in just about everything we do. And let`s not start rounding on Mochrie either, please.

5 points clear and the sun is out. Enjoy your Sunday Pars fans!

When we went two goals down I said to my mate that a lot of fans would now pick on their least favourite player and scapegoat him. Berkey doesn`t have any favourite players so he had plenty scope. The gratuitous comment about penalty takers just sums it up - a vulture looking for a carcase it can feed off.

For all the slagging the team and individuals have taken in the above posts ( Todd’s anonymous, Mochrie is lazy, Chalmers is crap blah blah blah..) it was actually our best player that cost us yesterday. You could argue he was fouled, personally I’m not sure having seen it again, but Edwards on his game would have dealt with that situation for the 1st goal and he had a mare for goal number 2 as well. He’s been excellent all season but he had a mare yesterday and it’s him and not Todd, Chalmers or Mochrie that should be taking the flak.

1. despite not having his best game mochrie still creates 3/4 good chances in first half and gets us the penalty

2. Not convinced thats a foul on Edwards for the first

3. Benny not great at both goals, comes out and leaves a space in behind him for the first and looses out on the header for the 2nd (cant win them all i guess)

4. Overall I didnt think we were terrible first half just lost 2 very bad goals and left ourselfves a lot to do

I think what made the first half galling was that Clyde were nothing special.

I think it was the second half before I actually saw them make three or four positive passes to create anything

Had that first header gone in for us, we’d probably have won it easy as we were controlling the game at the start and had a good shape. After the goal we seemed to vacate the middle of the park and every one just started running way ahead of the ball and then standing in a crowded final third

Maybe Edwards wasn’t 100% after not training much after picking up a knock last weekend. That’s the issue with a small squad and no cover that he maybe could’ve done with a rest this weekend

That`s a good point. Cover at LB needs addressed

Don`t think that is overly critical of Mochrie to be honest, on balance, he is a match winner even with one or two moments or brilliance but the flip side is the rest of the time in a similar mould to a Le Tissier ot Tom Rogic he is non existent when it`s going the other way and we don`t have the ball.

However if you take him out of the team we have very little else in midfield from a creative perspective at least.

In the grand scheme of things its about points. It doesn`t really matter what teams you win or draw against as long as you get the points. The encouraging thing is we came back from two goals down.

Anyone slating Mochrie surely has to say more than `he needs to do more` - do more of what? He`s in there to create chances and he`s been very good at that recently. We missed Hamilton in the midfield yesterday to be more combative and because of that Mochrie was expected by some to do more defensively when that`s not his game. If we had wingers who could stretch the game it`d give more space to Mochrie to slip in through balls like the one he played for Comrie against Kelty when he crossed it for Wighton to tap in.

Jim Duffy put out an organised 4-4-2 which was always going to play direct, managed to pin Edwards twice as the last man and he made 2 `errors` which cost us both goals, and then we fought well to get a point back which is encouraging.

Good support again yesterday,and wouldnt be impressed with that performance.
We have been scraping results at home and if it wasnt for the two penalties we were beat. We didnt look like scoring from open play and its been the story of the season sofar.
Still top but but watching that was dire yesterday.

I can think of at least four good chances from open play. In the first half Wighton hit the post, one shot was partially saved by the keeper then cleared off the line and Edwards had a shot blocked after great play by Mochrie and Wighton. In the second half Todorov had a shot blocked by the keeper.

Mochrie is a good young player but needs to add goals to his game. Another tough watch at home again yesterday. Hopefully Hamilton is feeling better and back in the starting 11 against Peterhead. Bad news about Main leaving because Mehmet has improved since he came in and was desperate for him to stay.

Disappointing obviously, but great to fight back and get a point when playing that badly, who knows in the long run how crucial that could be.

Need to strengthen in January to the squad, a few players are looking pretty jaded given most of them are playing 90 minutes week in week out which isn`t sustainable throughout the season. Don`t think recruitment wise we need to go mad but another 2-3 players would really help with the rotation of certain positions.

Blips like this will happen but just have to remain positive and consistent which is what I`m sure McPake will be saying to the players.

"Bonkers how far we’ve gone downhill when folk are saying chalmers was decent yesterday. Slower than a week in the jail, weak in the tackle or doesn’t even try to challenge like in build up to the 1st goal and zero creativity, yes he was available for a pass but only as opposition backed off, he slowed everything down and far too often it was a head down sideways pass".

Talk about not having a clue. Chalmers probably had more completed forward passes than the rest of the team put together on Saturday and definitely more than the rest of the midfield. Lots of issues on Saturday but Chalmers wasn`t one of them...

He`s not a scapegoat here but he was as awful as anyone else.
Even our captain had a shocker at the first goal.

So you make a mistake and you`re `awful`? That`s setting the bar a bit too high surely?

No, there were several badly misplaced passes and a general lack of covering the back 4 when that seemed to be his position.
He wasn`t the worst by any stretch because as I`ve said before, he did come looking for the ball at least and didn`t hide. But I stand by my awful rating. If you don`t agree, fine by me.

I interpreted your comment to mean everyone was `awful` including our captain for missing a header.

We still managed to create 4/5 good chances, they score 2 very poor goals from our point of view.

We have played just as bad this season and won the game.

1 things i would say, is for the 1000 of crosses we put in how many goals do we score ?

I`d like to see us try another way.

The problem with or crossing is two fold. More than half the efforts are poor, not passed the first man, over hit or just into the wrong zone. The ones that are decent our attackers don`t attack the ball or make correct runs.

One that sticks in my head was in the 2nd half. Bene heads back across goal and all three of wighton, tod and Hester make the same forward off the ball movement, if just one had held off they would have had a clear chance

I think at times our fullbacks cross from some ridiculous positions, if the cross isnt on, start again

We are guilty of crossing from far too deep. Edwards more so.

The crosses were generally of poor quality on Saturday, but the lack of intelligent runs in the box by our strikers, was also a factor

Agree on the crosses, no point crossing when the ball is landing at the penalty spot or even further out so the strikers can’t run onto it and have too much to do. The lad from Motherwell when not giving the ball away trying to pull off a trick was very guilty of it. Also seemed to be too many floaty ones in which are too easy to defend. Best cross of the day was the one for the 1st pen as he actually picked him out.

We also never seem to have anyone well positioned on the edge of the box should the ball break loose. We have Todd and chalmers who even at this level rarely look like scoring in games and to be honest in open play they rarely look capable of an assist. Todd was putting in some great balls last season as a full back tho.
