The lad looks well out of his depth, a rabbit caught in the headlights. I hope he's no gona be a waste of two seasons wages ,when we're crying out for a proper right back

Where I was sitting there were two elderly ICT supporters behind me discussing our man and on more than one occasion commented that he was raw but looked as if he'd be able to improve into a good centre back. They did say that his man to mark, namely White, lost him easily at corners but still liked the way he played.
I thought that he wasn't nearly as bad as I was lead to believe from reports on the Dundee game but he needs to be much stronger and aggressive at corners. He could or maybe should have scored with a header but just failed to connect. And some goal it would have been!

Davo went utter ballistic at him at one point at a later stage in the first half after failing to track his man for a third time. Bene had to drag Davo away and have a bit of a chat with Nando. The fact we're starting four centre halfs in a game is grim. What's worse is that three goals came via high balls into the box. Davidson had a chat with Nando at the start of the second half was well.


And that is an absolute flaw in Davos game. While Mendy is 25, he's stepping up to professional level for the first time. The senior pros, Davo and Bene should be talking him through the game and coaching him rather than shouting or going ballistic. That doesn't help a players development, infact, all it does is make Davo more likely to be sent off.

Spot on, but it is somewhat disappointing that he is that lost after a few games and some training. It is instructive that his weakness was clearly exposed by upper level teams, and will be interesting to see how he fares against the chaff versus the wheat in this bracket. And, yes, Iím quite aware of how well some of the chaff is playing.

Mendy simply can't play at this level.
You can't polish this turd into a prefessional footballer.

His signing says quite a lot about McGlynns opinion of his own coaching ability.

I would have preferred that we developed Mackay (who has some talent) instead of wasting time and wages on Nando

No place in the squad or on the bench today, just waiting for the 'mutual termination due to being homesick/not settling'

Or he could simply just be carrying an injury.
Maybe the manager will reference him if asked about the guy's non selection.

RaithTV lads today suggesting Mendy will benefit from practice with and watching Anderson. Suggests Ando is already making an impact with the younger players.

Mendy & McKay. The rock that future SPL attackers will perish upon.

No' as daft as you might think.

Excellent news, a loan till Jan to a pretty decent team. Can only either help or clarify his potential.
