Who bailed out Findlay after he gave the ball away near the end ? .... oh aye that would be Dicker.

He was missing against Hibs and they waltzed through the middle of us repeatedly.... cannae be that big a handicap.

We're generally a better side with Dicker playing. But he is also costing us goals with his sloppiness.

We were very pedestrian in the first half but that was an excellent second half performance that deserved the 3 points. Bad referring decisions cost us - looked like a foul on Burke and a clear handball as well. Not sure what happened with their penalty as Burke had both hands up but commentary said it was against Millen.

Was worried going into the season with the two full backs but they have been excellent so far. Power had another great game and took his goal very well. Pinnock will need some time to get up to speed with the game up here. Keeper didn’t have much to do but he did it well  

Definitely warming to Dyer. Three good team selections and three good performances in a tricky start. 3 points at home on Saturday and things will be looking ok.

I hope on Saturday we see either Rossi or Dikamona paired with Findlay, Broadfoot just isn't doing it for me. He was questionable in the first goal we conceded to Hibs (debatable if he would have kept up with Boyle if the keeper hadn't forced him wider), he got turned easily by Édouard as he tried to tackle from the wrong side which forced dicker to make the cynical foul giving the free kick they scored from. Tonight he ran Infront of Millen when he was trying to clear the ball which resulted in the corner  that County scored from. He also fell on his arse in the box tracking back the county striker and Findlay had to come across and bail him out which could have easily saw us concede. Tonight I also noticed him having a couple of free headers when county cleared the ball and all he did was head it back to a county player.

It's really starting to feel that Broadfoot has some dirty pictures of Dyer or something. Everyone can see Broadfoot is the weak link in the back 4 line just now but he won't be dropped for either of the other two CB's we have brought in.

From a first half where we looked out of sorts apart from the penalty shout we were a fast improvement in the second. Maybe more subs could have been brought on, Dicker looked leggy towards the end. Would like to know what the situation is with Brophy, maybe he would have got on the end of one of these crosses.

We will be absolutely fine this season. 3 games 3 good performances. 

Only if we turn performances into wins, if the current form continues throughout the season we will be about the 25 points mark.

St Johnstone on saturday will show where we are as a difficult game at ibrox following week and no wins from first 5 wouldn't be a good position to be in, irrespective of performances.

The result against Celtic was excellent. Other than that it's more of the same. Decent looking signings, play some good football, but still no results.

Of course win against St. Johnstone and things might start to look better

A point away is better than a home draw against any team.

One of the midfield three need to be deployed in a more attacking role.  I can’t see any of them capable of making intelligent passes forward.  County are set up well.

Better in the second half when they pushed forward more. Goal and an assist for Power

Defence was fine tonight including Broadfoot. Dicker lost his man for a very simple first goal and the second one was either stupid by our player or a shocking decision by the ref

I know it’s early but st j already feels important. A win and we’ll say that it’s a decent start and can carry momentum forward. A loss and it’s a poor start.

A loss at home to St Johnstone is a poor result at any time but I can’t see it happening on Saturday. We have put in three decent performances and if we keep playing like that we will start to win games. Would help if we stopped losing simple goals though.

Not sure we can criticise Pinnock when he barely got a touch first half. He was a bit more involved 2nd half and seemed to be told to get closer to Kabamba. Early days. 

Not for us killie fans! We can write people off before they've even put the strip on never mind after an iffy 90 minutes

Burke put both arms above his head. No idea why but can’t really complain that a penalty was given. 
The other one definitely hit Stewart on the hand but it looked accidental. Don’t honestly know if those are penalties these days or not. 
Pull on Burke in the first half was a blatant penalty. Right in front of that idiot of a linesman who no doubt saw it but bottled it.

Just watched game on tv, who tf is supposed to be on Draper when the crosses came into him, his first effort was a sitter, he couldn’t miss the second.

Both Killie penalty’s should have been give, I believe any hand/arm ball inside the box unless it’s welded to your side should be awarded. Their penalty, yes probably but only after we are 4-1 up

Their penalty was really soft IMO. Particularly if you look at what the ref let go the other way.

We looked no at the races in the first half. If you let guys get free headers like that then you deserve all you get. We looked a bit sharper in the second half and could have won it but them's the breaks.

I think we'd all agree that the performances have been acceptable this season, albeit with an ongoing lack of creativity and cutting edge. 

Alex Dyer's win ratio is now a percentage point below Gary Locke's.

The worrying fact as I keep repeating. The performances were pretty much acceptable from january last season. However our form was heading us straight for a relegation battle.

First half kabamba far to isolated Pinnock got closer to him 2nd half and midfield played 10yards further up the pitch

We need to be very careful with this “good performances” and “unlucky” mind set and from others, a draw in the Hibs game would have been a “ fair” result.

I don’t disagree with them but it’s a naive attitude to think that we are going to have a decent season without becoming more ruthless and turning the positives in our performances into actual points.

Stop looking at the "normal" maths in a situation that isn't normal.

Dyers run into the abandonment had Celtic twice, Aberdeen 3 times, Rangers, Hibs. After Christmas, realistically when he properly started, he had a very tough run and the league was abadoned going into St Mirren, Motherwell and then probably the bottom 6 where his ratio would look completely different!

After the restart, straight back into Hibs, Celtic and then now.

Stop with the win ratio stuff. It's not a normal win ratio. At least until he's had a proper run against everyone with his team anyway.

Just watched the highlights,  ref got ONE decision out of THREE correct amd as usual its the one against us.

Abysmal refereeing,  both our were definite penalties.  We get those,  score them and its an entirely different match.

I thought in the second half we played the ball to feet through the middle more and this helped, Power seemed to push up and of course scored from inside the box, Can't remember the last time i saw one of the three Centre Mid's inside the box.

We put together a lot of nice fast passing moves, But sometimes the ball ends up back were it started. 

At the back both fullbacks were good going forward , Millen had another solid game. Watters is improving , But not as good in the air as Taylor was for a wee guy.

Broadfoot i feel is the weak link at the back. Always seems to be diving into tackles and already in three games he has mistimed a few, allowing his man to pass him. Also when playing a long ball his ability to pass  consistently is lacking. 

Would love to see a clean sheet on Saturday, We are back to letting in goals, Meaning we have to score a couple for the chance of a point/win.

It looked like Country worked us out. In the first half our wide area's were shut down , But we kept playing poor balls into the channels, Many over hit, I think this was because they sat off us and allowed our two worst passers , The centre backs to be the ones attempting the long pass. They were up for a battle with our Midfield and at times they won control in the middle. Only when we started to pass to feet did we gain control in the second half.

As i said last night i would have took the point before the game. The game on Saturday must be won to keep confidence up and gather some momentum, I would like to see us revert to the 442 , As we should be on the front foot at home. I imagine they will come for a point and when we play 433 we seem more defensive.
