Squad looking thin

Now is the time to add a couple of players, if there’s anyone suitable. Even short term contract or loan till we reorganise in the summer. We simply need more cover. 

would have though like couple of other clubs last week would seen any suitable out of contract player brought in -----maybe there has been interest and steps underway ---other than  having a look at Mutch to find out what was known before that he was recovering from major injuries and not ready to play  --and plans been made ......

Touch wood we do not see any more major injuries to our important players as shown last night there is limited scope to change a game in the squad

Really hope we can bring in a couple of extra players.

We have turned a corner and now looking up for a top six finish. We need the extra cash that would bring in.

But we are almost playing some players to much, Its been a lot of games in a short time since the winter break and to be honest what was the point of a break if they play ever 3/4 days.

A few players are not getting a break....Power,Dicker, Hammy, Brophy and kabamba. Just one game rest could be enough to stop a potential injury.

Going fwd we need some legs in the middle of the park. Our midfield is getting on and could do with an injection of youthful exuberance, it was notable when Rory started playing more centrally later and what a difference it was having on them not having time and space on the ball.

Power off broadfoot on I thought was a strange one that shows how weak our squad is 

Looked like it was to allow Findlay to move up front although I initially thought Broadfoot would go into attack. Shows how short of options we are in attack at the moment. Do wonder if it would have been worth chucking young Connell on for a brief period or if he’s just making up numbers at the moment and not quite ready.

With so many games we are asking a lot from our small squad. There is no scope to rest any key players and nothing on the bench to change the game. This is the result of two very poor transfer windows. We cannot allow this to happen again. 
 

If we can make the top 6 and get through i the cup it will be some achievement

Was obvious before but last 2 games we've basically played our strongest 11 and looking at the bench there was really noone that could come on to change things. Kiltie did mix things up slightly but he wasn't a massive improvement on rory.

We have cover yes but there's noone on the bench who you could say is unlucky not to be playing. 

Bunn missing is a problem as he seems like the kind of player that could make an impact

Id like to see more of Connell. Thought he looked good against Queens Park when he came on and we have little other options at the moment. 

We need to show some faith in our young players. By all accounts this boy is a player, so give him a chance, other clubs give young players a chance, why not us?

Was is the problem with him? He would have been the ideal replacement for McKenzie in the second half. McKenzie played well and I know it’s not easy for him to play out wide on the left but the way he constantly cuts infield is infuriating.

I think realistically whether we make top 6 or not, we face the likely prospect of not having much to play for in the remaining games. Should be safe from relegation with Europe a big ask.

This would be a great time to bring some of the younger players into the team.

And yet AD brings on Kiltie and then Broadfoot, leaving the boy warming the bench........... Agree 100% about giving youth a chance, especially as it is the only way forward for provincial clubs like us.

Squad depth is laughable if it wasn’t so annoying. We’ve got about 15 outfield players plus untried kids and a couple of guys signed in the summer who NEVER feature. Hardly any competition for places. The guys have done really well to steer us into a relatively safe league position and keep ambitions of top 6 alive. The board should properly justify why the ambition has deserted them since the day Steve Clarke left.

At the moment just have to hope for no serious injuries or suspensions ----past month has seen a very busy schedule and it would been a benefit to have that extra bit of quality or if we had options from the bench AD could have used to add something extra especially in regards to the final third and out attacking play 

The ongoing strange case of St Clair and even Hendrie is baffling to say the least - this is the period when players like these could been used ---
