With respect, you`re also on another thread saying that playing football is a privilege and they should be judged by supporters as such.

Let`s have a reality check, most of our squad are young lads (and a decent bunch by all accounts) who aren`t paid all that much and are trying to make their way in life. How would you feel having your performance and character dissected in public?

I could see a club like Rangers being interested truth be told. I`ve said it before but I think the issue with McCann is confidence and positioning. He may be more of a forward than an out and out striker.

However, that tweet is definitely a wind up. If it said £75k I might believe it but no player in the Championship is worth £750k!

Lewis is only 23, people always try and compare with the wonder kids that show their qualities at an earlier age, Bellingham a recent good example but it isn’t the case for all, who may develop/mature later than others.

McCann has potential, lots of it, I know we’ve been saying that now for a good few seasons but he has time on his side and it’s nothing to do with his work ethic.

I’ve noticed he’s been stronger as he’s progressed and more physical at times which will help. Started off preseason with the goal at Cove as well.

He is a confidence player though, so I’m sure the pelters he gets from us fans when a competitive ball hasn’t been kicked yet this season will do him the world of good.

Pathetic really.

Agreed. That tweet is an odd one though. It`s not a parody account and it`s not even a funny "joke" if that`s what it`s meant to be. Perhaps it`s correct but the value is incorrect?

Honestly, some people need to learn that footballers should have a backbone and take things on forums/from fans with a pinch of salt. They aren’t in a normal day to day job like Joe Bloggs round the corner. They are in a job where praise and criticism will come in equal amounts. They should thrive from it and push to improve and prove doubters wrong.

To say paying fans cant critique a player is such a pathetic answer to said critics. Imagine an actor just gave up at their first bad review……

McCann doesn`t really suit being the widest of a three IMO. He should be playing through the middle with wingers/wide forwards on either side to feed him.

I posted this about him in another thread a while ago:-

`A big reason Graham is the top goalscorer in the league is the service he gets from wide in Fitzpatrick (who has the rare gift of being comfortable crossing with either foot), Lawless, and also through the middle from McInroy. I think McCann would flourish in that position and with that kind of service from creative players around him.`

I`d probably play him or Chris Kane.

That could be said of any player at any level though. It depends on how the player deals with it that matters, and players should be able to handle either, no matter what level they play at - its part of what they are paid for.

Theres nothing juvenile about stating your opinion on a player if you think they aren’t good enough. Has McCann shown in his career so far that he can compete at the top end of the Championship?

Its not against the rules or humanity to critique a player. Its up to the player to prove those critics wrong and the only way they can do that is racking up the positive stats on the pitch. Something which current players are yet to do for us.

People like wee eck and da_no_1 wont criticise any player because they think its uncalled for to state a negative opinion on a fans forum incase the player reads it - but that shouldn’t stop others from posting theirs…..

Aye, it takes a lot of guts to post anonymous criticism of a player knowing he won`t come back in kind. Maybe the critics could tell the players face to face what they think of them and how to improve. All this macho stuff about players having to take it wouldn`t apply in any other place of work.

Its not “any place of work” though is it? Its sport, where people are paid money to perform at their best for others. Sometimes they just aren’t good enough for the level they are at…

Players have the chance to “come back in kind” as well - by performing better on the pitch, working harder to improve and also with their community work. Now nobody has said these players don’t do the latter two, and their community work is praised to the high heavens, as it should be, but they are being paid to perform on the pitch.

Opinions vary, they aren’t “macho stuff”, they are just different. If I wasn’t good enough at my job, Id be given a chance to improve and if I didn’t Id be removed, just like anybody else in their line of work. Footballers should be the same…..

They are just the same. They`re on fixed term contracts and have to satisfy their employers to get another one. The employers are more qualified to make these judgements than anybody else. I`ve said it before. Some folk have a completely different idea from me about what it means to support a football club. Each to his own.

Even if true (which it’s extremely doubtful) I’d be surprised if Rangers could actually afford that kind of money and any club allowing them to do installments etc would be daft! Even though they won’t admit it themselves it’s pretty well known the club is on its knees trying to compete with Celtic - relying on shady loans from shady benefactors over the last few years to keep themselves afloat! Like happened to Hamilton, these benefactors won’t be available forever!

I agree that personal insults should not happen - but saying a player cant jump/win a header, pass, finish etc isn’t a personal insult - its a view on their footballing ability, which is what fans pay to watch.

I think we’re all aligned really.

It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, players will not perform well for periods and I see no issue with them being critiqued, providing it’s constructive and not insulting.

Far too many times in the past, we’ve went overboard calling players useless, waste of a jersey etc etc which I don’t think is particularly helpful.

McCann just as an example, he’s only 23, still a young lad at the end of the day as are many others.

I struggle to understand how we’ve started already raising question marks again on players though when a competitive ball hasn’t been kicked yet.

Its a continuation of previous seasons performances I think.

Maybe a bit premature as nobody knows what players have worked on in the summer, but also tactically it sounds lime we haven’t changed much so more than likely frustration towards that as well.

I like Lewis. He`s big, strong, hard working. He has all the attributes to be a Premiership player, someone like Jordan White or Simon Murray. He`s only just turned 23, already played 139 professional games, scored 21 goals. A lot of that time he has been playing in a struggling team, low on confidence. I reckon confidence will be a big thing for him, I feel if he was playing in a team doing well he would really kick on.

We, as supporters, need to get behind him

He has the physical attributes. It`s a big season for him this year to kick on a bit. Like everyone, there is room for improvement, and no doubt he will be working to do that. There is no lack of effort on his part. Sometimes his head does seem to go down in my view but that`s because he is keen to do well. He just needs to keep his head up and keep plugging away. He does need to improve his decision making but that can be worked on. I hope he can rise the the challenge this season.

He’s strong, he wins his fair share of aerial battles and has the work ethic.

I think with someone up top supporting him this could be a good season for him to progress with the experience of Kane, even dare I say it Wighton if he stays injury free.

I think because of the role we have put him in at times hasn’t been helpful, he’s been up top on his own in a number of games and we’ve not had a great midfield in previous seasons, we’ve lacked a real attacking mentality as a squad which isn’t going to help and it’s a lot of responsibility for him to take on whilst he’s trying to develop as well.

Anyone who was at the Arbroath game prior to Christmas last year when Lewis pulled up with a hamstring would confirm the majority of supporters who attended that day are behind him.
He plays with confidence and anyone who believes that decrying someone at under 23 years old about their performances maybe doesn’t understand how to get the best out of a 23 year old. Guidance, advice, cajoling are helpful, constant criticism is not.
I believe the earlier poster who says the service to the forwards in our style of play is not helpful for a striker. I think the problems lie elsewhere from last season.

I don’t think anyone has said he doesn’t have the basic skills to make it as a footballer, I think what people have been conveying is that they don’t believe the skills he does have, currently, are good enough to be pushing for promotion from this league.

Now thats up to him to prove those people wrong, on the pitch, by doing more for the team. As has been pointed out previously, his scoring record isn’t exactly prolific. I get a lot of appearances were when he was younger etc, but he’s now 23 and really should be kicking on. At 23 Id already been made redundant twice and was starting another new job and had to impress - its about how you apply yourself to your job that gives you the rewards.

And it doesn’t just go for McCann either btw - people should be allowed to express opinions on all players, both positive and constructively negative, without being called out as childish and inappropriate. If players are taking offence to a handful of comments on a fans forum then the club really need to invest in a psychologist.

For me, his best game last season was our first game against Queens Park at Hampden when, I think he scored two, including a screamer of a free kick. If he had pushed on from there, he wouldn`t be with us now but off to bigger things. He has all the physical attributes but seems not to use them to full potential.

He doesn`t seem to shirk hard work according to the manager. Talking about Josh Edwards dedication to improving himself he said - “The one thing about Josh is that he worked ever so hard, this is not through chance. He has wanted to do extras, he has been pushing himself every single day. He was relentless in what he wanted to do whether it was coming to me or Dave for extras or wanting to watch his footage, just bursting himself every day in training. The amount of times that we have had to pull him back, Matty Todd and Lewis McCann the same.”

I don`t think anyone is doubting his work rate it is more his ability as a striker he just doesn`t score enough goals. At the start of last season when we played the rovers I`m sure. We played him wide left and he looked sharp I actually thought a front 3 of him KRH and someone in the middle would be quite dangerous. That never materialised and McCann never recreated the same performance as he did that day either.

Its not about the way we play, its about his ability at times - zero confidence when through on goal 1v1 that he just wont finish it because his finishing is poor in those instances. His finishing is better when its a snap shot or he doesn’t have time to think about it - or a free kick 😂

A stinker who doesn’t score for over 5 months in a row in this league isn’t really a striker and he played a decent amount of games. Same goes for jak and he was let go. He even had penalty chances to finally get back in the team and still missed.

He doesn’t have a dedicated position, not got the nouse or game intelligence to play upfront, not a winger not a target man as not great in the air for flicks ons or holding the ball up. So what is he and where do you play him to get a contribution at this level?

Just doesn’t do anything well enough and after 5-6 years in and around the team he still hasn’t carved out a role or position. In some ways he’s better without the ball than with it.

As I’ve said a fair few times, working your socks off and putting a shift in will only get your far…

Left side of attack is definitely his best position but I’m guessing injuries and competing with other left sided colleagues forced the hand of the manager.
Lots of huff and puff but he’s not playing to his strengths as a target man imo.

It sucks the life out of me just reading your posts. What a pit of absolute negativity you must wallow in. I hope you manage to snap out of it, and soon

And here in lies the issue with .net 😂 the majority of what Berkey has stated there is correct….he hasn’t been offensive towards Lewis, but because its negative based it shouldn’t be allowed to be highlight according to some 🤦🏻‍♂️ if McCann scores 3 goals this season is he still going to be good enough?

No one is going to be prolific and score shed loads of goals in mcpakes systems. We could have brian Graham up front, and he isn`t gonna score loads when he is starved of service. We are set up to keep it tight. 3 at the back with two sitting midfielders. If the wing backs are not bombing up and down the park, then we only have 3 in attacking positions. 1 striker and 2 supporting.

Spot on Adam, he`s also got plenty of energy and strength which is good for the team.

In your opinion what Berkey says is correct. Believe it or not I don`t disagree with everything he says.

My issue is he never says anything positive. Every single one of his posts is negative. Without fail.
