    He went backwards almost everytime he had the ball tonight..

    It's a sin for him as he's just a boy and that showed the complete lack of confidence he has. Needs to be taken out for his own sake..

    I have a feeling he'll end up at a bottom half premiership club.

    Not true.

    There were a few times where he completely miss controlled the ball.

    Better at left back where he can overlap and catch a winger sleeping. He has confidence but I fear he just doesn't have the ability to make it here.

    I’d be surprised if he’s playing at any sort of decent level when he leaves here.

    On a night where a few guys made a case that they should be getting more game time than what they do he was the complete opposite. Didn’t look like a winger in a million years.

    Ideally he’d get a loan move and see what he’s got, but our squad is so thin we probably can’t afford to do that.

    He doesn't, hence why he plays the safe pass 99% of the time and rarely takes a player on

    Not a great performance because we have seen him play to better standards. It didn’t happen for him tonight but we have relied on him well in most of his 16 appearances. Keep going son and don’t let the head drop. :50:

    Not his night at all. Seems to have lost the energy and directness he showed in preseason.

    Hoping he can find it again.

    Can see the pressure getting to him and like Johnston gets caught in 2 minds constantly. Needs a good loan out at a club to bulk him up and get the experience.

    Henderson maybe ahead of him now as an attacking option

    Not going to make it here, not good enough offensively, not strong enough in defence.

    I disagree, I think he is gallus, comfortable to take the ball and always shows for it. That has got him to where the is on the fringes of the first team. However he just doesn't seem to have the burst of pace or trickery to go by somebody. He tried it a few times last night.

    Maybe not confident specifically in taking people on but unfortunately I think he is correct not to be confident in that regard.

    I'm sad to say the lad just doesn't look like he has what it takes to make it here. I've never been overly impressed with what I have seen of him at left back, but I was giving him the benefit of the doubt as it wasn't his natural position. Having now seen him play further forward a couple of times I'm still not impressed.

    I do think part of it isn't his own fault, I get the feeling they have been trying to mould him into a new Tierney, by turning a LW into a LB, but he just isn't cut out for it defensively, and it has had a detrimental affect on his own game going forward as he has been concentrating on learning how to play further back.

    But if anyone can turn him around it will be Ange. I thought Ralston was going to be bottom team SPL level, at best, as his confidence looked completely gone, a bit like Montgomery just now.

    Maybe a loan spell would do him good, as he may just need a run of games. The issue we have with loaning out our players at the moment is that we play such a different style from every other team in Scotland, and any team we can realisticaly loan players to in England, that they will not be ready to slot straight back into the team even if they do well. I wish we would buy into a team in one of the decent European countries B leagues, like Belgium or Spain, where we could loan our players and have them play the same style as the first team, as well as making access to different markets, like Africa and South America easier to get players from. That's probably a pipe dream though.

    He had a very poor game tonight but he has been thrown in and out of the team and he was out of position tonight. Definitely needs a loan elsewhere, far too early to write him off

    He wasn't really though, that has been his position for years, it's only recently he's been converted to LB.

    The boy himself said his best position is LB but aye it's not like he has been asked to play CF but it's still a secondary position for him

    When he first came into the team he was fearless. Looked * hot vs AZ.

    Since he's been in and out the team he's struggled though. Just doesn't look that confident anymore.

    Not writing him off by any means. Still a young guy. I'd loan him in January. Defo a LB for me though.
