Bring Back McDonald !

Recommended Posts

Keeper cost us 2pts today and has been guilty for a goal a game the past few weeks. If I were the reserve keeper I'd be chapping the manager's door till my knuckles bled.

To be fair, much as Jamie McDonald was terrific for us, his level dropped at the start of last season and he hadn’t lifted it again when he got the chance this season.

I am far from convinced by Lary but I’d say they are similar keepers. I don’t see McDonald as the answer, sadly.

I liked Branescu when he came in but it’s obvious he has gone backwards. Was he culpable at the 1st? I certainly felt he should have done better at the second.

Both looked like cracking goals, would have to see them again before putting any blame on the goalkeeper. 

I thought the first was very well hit. The second didn’t seem as well hit and didn’t look to be in the corner. Certainly Dicker was at fault IMO as well for the first as he headed the ball into trouble and no one was closing Miller down.

There are valid questions to be asked of Larry, but McDonald is certainly not the answer. 

There is a reason the only club he could  get are a team of strugglers in the second tier.

Would have agreed with a bring back Bachmann post ....

JM was a good servant but his form dipped and has found his level a league down ....

Our current keeper's form has dipped recently but the changes in front of him hasn't helped ....been obvious how much Findlay has been missed

As soon as second goal went in I said he looked to be totally caught out by it which for a keeper is criminal.

You must always be alert.

In fairness, he could only sign at Championship level - the window was closed, I think.

Played in win today v Dunfermline.

Have just seen the first Hamilton goal on Sky. No 'keeper would have saved that it was a peach.

Looking forward to seeing it back.  I don’t feel that he moves his feet (in general) and dives from his standing spot.  No doubt TV will prove me totally wrong though!!

Folk seem to think the criticisms directed towards Larry are just because of the goals, but they’re not.

He is hopeless at cross balls and is just a competent shot stopper. His distribution is questionable and he makes some baffling decisions - I.e today with his mental moment when he tried to pass the ball out and gave it to the accies player.

I never mentioned MacDonald.

Him being double the keeper doesn’t mean he’s good either.

No but the post is about bringing MacDonald back is what I meant. For what it's worth I agree Branescu isnt very good generally
