I think JJ comes across fine and him being a bit dull in interviews isn’t a big concern, to me anyway. Everything else worries me though.

Giving JJ time and the resources to build his own squad could prove extremely costly if it needs dismantled yet again. I’ve said for weeks now I’m not sure what he’s done to deserve that trust being placed in him. The team assembled by McKinnon wasn’t great, but has been taken even further backwards quite quickly by the management team.

A defeat on Saturday and those still with faith in him are verging on happy-clapping.

If Morton had ever taken the lead at the Olympiastadion we'd be dining out on it to this day and you know it full well.

edit: and remember they got through two rounds of the UEFA Cup to get there. OK, the teams they beat were Faroese and Icelandic, but they had to win the League Cup in the first place, beating a full-strength Celtic team in the final. That road to Munich was a real achievement, one we haven't been within a million miles of replicating since the 1960s.


This.

That goal :lol: Worse than the descriptions even made it sound. Dunning has said pretty much exactly what I would. Individual errors have cost us games but they’re much, much less likely to happen to teams who know what they’re supposed to be doing and have at least some confidence in it.

There appeared to be somewhat of an effort fo change the mentality around the club at the biginning of the season, most notably from the chairman’s updates (remember them?) but that has long since died on its arse. We’ll be in League 1 again before we come close to the Premiership and that’s pretty depressing. Full time football isn’t the issue - as shown by the simillar sized teams listed above that have actually done things of note, we’re just guff at it.

Thistle & Dumbarton have at least overachieved in the last two decades.
