Nothing upfront, and a bullied midfield that cant break up opposition attacks before they get to our penalty area is killing us

Although they didn't dominate us Queens certainly controlled the match. We assisted them in doing so by being incredibly wasteful in possession and producing slack passes anytime we looked like pressing onto dangerous positions.
A number of players had off days but that's the worse I've seen Aiden Connolly play for us.
We are where we are. Almost certainly we will not be challenging for the promotion play offs but I think we will have enough about us to avoid a proper relegation scrap.

You'd think after watching their big centre half fail with three headers on goal from corner kicks we'd have our sh!t together before his 4th attempt which ended up in the net with the easiest header you'll see all afternoon.

We huffed and puffed but in reality didn't do enough to have too many complaints.

Until Murray addresses the striking problem .... and it is a big problem .... we are going to struggle.

Its early days but from here I cant see us threatening 4th spot.

We were poor. I hope the board and management are happy with what was on offer today because I wasn't. Where are we going to score goals.

Disappointing result again and whilst it's just gone into October it's getting a touch concerning as we are further adrift in the bottom half with the gap widening.☹️

Just to add that we are now equal with Arbroath with the most games lost. Inspiring or what?

Theres a split emerging in the league with a top five and a bottom five and we are in the wrong half at present.

On where we are and what I've seen this far I cant see us being in the top 5.

Very similar to last season, where there was a substantial gap between 5th and 6th until the turn of the year.
Thereafter Rovers, Partick and Inverness all went into varying degrees of freefall and Hamilton and Morton closed in on us a bit.

Going back to yesterday, when you're facing a player the size of Eze, surely you man mark him with your biggest player, or even double up on him, given we had all eleven back in the box trying to defend corners.

Wasn't much in the game, had we heeded the multiple warnings at set pieces then we would have got at least a draw.

It's going to be a tough season as we try to move on from the previous era and build a new one, and it may take a couple of transfer windows for Murray to build the team he wants- especially given how tough a transfer window it's been.

Don't have a problem with that (barring any relegation trouble), but it ain't going to be a rip roaring season.

If we could only get a fully fit injury free Vaughan and Lang back for December, along with Spencer and Mathews, and this big fellow gets the clearance before then, there should be a good chance of a comfortable finish

But that could well be a very big IF

Presumably that's why they are trying to bring a striker in.

Watched the highlights and irrespective of multiple warnings at set pieces the size of the guy had nothing to do with the goal as he never even jumped for the header,it was down to awful marking

Calderon how many weeks /days are you going to listen to someone ie manager telling you there is something going to happen and by January it's still in the balance. If the manager told me tomorrow was Tuesday I wouldn't believe him.

It's pretty obvious the club are trying to get a signing over the line, considering he's been at games wearing a club tracksuit.
