    You just told someone to lower their expectations and be happy with second in the league this season :56:

    Let’s not kid ourselves. We lost our biggest league game this season not because of injuries or the squad but because of the managers decisions and lost away to betis because he couldn’t see what everyone else could, soro being an empty jersey after his booking and leaving it too late to sub him

    Last year we probably wouldn't even be playing Betis, never mind scoring 3 against them.

    “You really need to lower your expectations and think that second will be a decent season”.
    Quote from your post just a page back mate.

    Do you think Livi or Hearts would turn their nose up at Ajeti, Jota, Turnbull, Rogic, CCV, Starfelt, Abada, Hart etc?

    We all knew this season would be tough. I still back Ange and I understand he's had and still has a massive rebuilding job on his hands.

    But the team he put out at the weekend should be more than good enough to beat Livi. This isn't even the Livi of the last couple of seasons. They don't have that same physical presence up top. They're pish.

    Hearts I can give benefit of the doubt as it was the first game we were dreadful at the weekend though and he cost us at Ibrox not putting Kyogo through the middle but instead choosing a half arsed Eddy. We've been told time and time again he's not a yes man so you can only assume he's had a say in all of them (I think its fairly apparent he hasn't). The media are citing our demise yet I've to lower my expectations of finishing second surely that's a wee bit of a stretch no ?

    Is it third then ?

    If you want him to get time and don't think he will win the league this year surely that indicated you have settled for second ?

    No really, just think your being a typical pedantic fan that wants the pitchforks out at the fact the manager hasn't turned it around in 6 games.

    Not in the slightest, that's what you've said. Not me.

    I love Ange, but the criticism recently is warranted imo, we threw away a perfectly good 2 goal lead in Spain and lost to an absolutely horrendous Livingston side with football that rivals Lennon's last season. Not to mention it took a lucky strike against Ross County at home to get us going.

    I'm still in the camp of him coming good, more than good even, but he desperately needs to find some form, and the next three domestic games a perfect time to do so. Failure to win all 3 and he'll be under pressure, whether warranted or not.

    So where do you think we'll finish this season ?

    Again I don't want him sacked because again it is possible to criticise him without wanting him gone

    Reality is sobering isn't it, although I never once said I'd be happy with it. If you thought for a second it would be solved by a magic wand you don't know much about football.

    Heart says 1st head says 2nd, would I be happy with that? No but I'm not naive enough to think everything would be solved within 6 games.

    Fair enough mate. I honestly don’t know what point you’re trying to make here.
    I certainly didn’t say I’d be happy with second and wont consider coming second to a very poor huns team a decent season.

    Point I'm making is your changing people's words to suit your argument, which isn't on.

    So 2nd then ? The same as me then. But I'm a * for it cause I don't think it's good enough ... the same as you.

    I was happy to drop this but it seems you want to continue it.
    I gave you the * quote word for word.
    I took from the quote that you would be happy if we finished second this season since you described it as decent. What’s “not on” about that? :39:
