If we lose both remainin games, we would need two of the following to happen to finish 8th or higher (if we lose to Dunfermline, they are safe):

Partick getting no more than one win from two games against Ayr and one away at Queens (and still having a worse GD)


Queens getting no more than one point from Ross County Away and Partick at home


Alloa getting no more than one point from ICT home and Ayr Away


Falkirk not winning at Dundee Utd AND home to Ross Co.



Falkirk look nailed :thumbup2: but all the others seem to be longer odds - so think we still need a point or two

Cheers - it's two tough games to come but I reckon we'll get at least one point.

Don't even want to think about these creeps until after we SWORD Inverness later.

What a thick **** this boy really is. Any chance he can text Tumilty again to ask the manager to unstick his arse from our bench and just do one all together.

This is the ****ing s***e we’re stuck with? Some charlatan having a Twitter love in with some spice boy from Falkirk, a team that will potentially send us down? Brilliant.

 

On the one hand, it's professional sport - they're playing for a wage, not for the Corinthian love of the game, nor for the badge on the jersey. But on the other, you'd expect a bit more discretion. Send him a text or a DM if he's your mate, don't basically flaunt the fact that all the young guys who play lower-league football have more loyalty to each other than to the clubs who employ them and the fans who pay to watch. Even if it's true.

 

But above all else it just speaks once again to JJ's judgement. A guy who apparently isn't very good, doesn't really get picked for the team, and sticks his foot in his mouth online, is so far our flagship signing for next season.

 

That'll have them lining up around the block, Warren!

surely alloa are the form team lol

 

Not over the last six games, which is the Gold Standard of form.

 

Coincidentally, we are last in the form table over the last six, with a PALTRY 0.5 points per game. Three draws and three losses.

There's many remarkably bad things about Johansson, but contriving to make the area of the team you claim to be focussing on such a disaster is pretty spectacular. It's astonishing just how badly it's went, the entire team has become so much worse collectively and individually since he came in. It's got even worse since January when he brought in his own "I'm fussy and don't rush in" Dream Team.

 

I've said this before, but I think it comes down to a mixture of ignorance, arrogance and indifference. From day one it was clear he was a dud and you could see the players weren't sure what they were meant to be doing leading to the hammerings against Ayr etc. Rather than acknowledge any sort of culpability in those results, Johansson clearly decided that it was everybody else's fault for not being good enough leading to the "everybody's just trying to survive" type comments and the preposterous "defensive changes" (which Houston apparently proposed) and all this rubbish about "hungrier" young players being better options.

 

It's never occurred to Johansson that the Championship is professional league full of teams who want to win and whose players are mostly better than the mediocrities that make up Rangers' youth team. His attitude to the job, the club and the league is an absolute disgrace and it speaks volumes about Rae and Hawke's own mentality that they've tolerated it and even think it has been "sublime".

 

It's a s***e state of affairs and it's clear now that there's no future for the club in any relevant sense unless there's a change of leadership and ownership. 

 

Agree completely with this. Christ, I remember thinking Duffy was a bad one for talking us down. JJ is ten times worse. The BoD probably sees that as a positive, in fairness, as everything's a hard-luck story with them.

 

I just spent ten minutes looking up Jim Goodwin's after-match comments from the last few months. He acknowledges the challenges Alloa face but is relentlessly upbeat and positive, and - I think most importantly - always sounds like he has a plan, even when things go wrong (e.g. the late defeat against Dundee United.) And that plan is generally to go out and try to win games, given that they need(ed) three points and not one if they want to stay up.

 
For JJ it's the exact opposite. Negative, no real plan except 'err, try not to lose lads', talks everything and everyone down (unless they're East Fife, who've somehow morphed into 2006-07 Juventus, marooned in the alien environs of League One, far below their station) and is so contemptuous of both his own club and those around it that he thinks plodding around looking for the occasional draw is in any way good enough.
 
And I've also had more than enough of people saying 'he's a nice guy, but...' on Facebook and the like. Where's the evidence for this? Nice guys don't basically call everyone and everything s***e in a passive-aggressive way. They make the best of what they have and seek to encourage, rather than tear down.
 
Frankly he seems like a bit of a dick, probably why he and Warren get along so well.

I'd love to be an Alloa fan right now. So much energy, so much hunger. Predatory football, ready to take advantage of mistakes.

 

While I don't think the players covered themselves in glory last night, being (presumably) asked to sit in against Alloa for the third time was only going to end up one way. If not for our "penalty" we might have lost by two.

He knows hes a beaten man.

 

Goodwin was running up and down the touchline in the last 5 mins, organising, cajoling. Johansson didn’t take his hands out his pockets.

 

McPherson, toward the end of his (mercifully brief) tenure, stood there like a statue as well.

 

It's probably a combination of being a beaten man and not knowing what the **** to do. And realizing he couldn't really improve the team by bringing anyone else on. For which he should really blame himself.

Yet again 3 of his 5 January signings don't get near a starting slot.  Kiltie must be close to top scorer already.

 

Kiltie POTY, no joke.

Remember when most were excited about an appointment from left-field?

 

Yep. He ticked all the boxes and I was excited as hell. But Christ almighty. It goes to show that being a good player doesn't mean you're going to know how to manage.

In all seriousness if the players are expecting adulation for going in 0-0 at half-time in a relegation scrap against part-timers, they need to have a think about where they are this season. I mean, it's bad.

I have to say, I am interested in who controls the club, because I think that will be instrumental to how easily the club is sold. I also think we have a moral right to know it.

I think people underestimate how calamitous relegation would be.
