    I understand that, totally, but ffs the manager is in charge of what is happening on the park!

    Regardless of injuries, we still have superior players than what Livingston and Dundee Utd have, yet they are making us look like complete imbeciles.

    Manager standing there looking clueless arms folded looking into thin air with dumb and dumber lurking in the background looking even more clueless, a familiar scene yet this was supposed to be a transitional time for us, just looks like the same movie from last season ?

    If it’s your job to pick the team and I only supply you with 11 players did you really pick the team?

    I’m not saying Ange is the answer but clearly it isn’t relevant while the rest of the club makes the managers position unworkable.

    You would trust this board to appoint a new manager out of nowhere? They took 100 days to get Ange and 3 months to get a sports scientist. Oh, and they sacked their CEO after 2 months.

    6th in the league after 7 games and we're being told nobody else could do better with a straight face

    Loads of managers, I imagine.

    Their job is literally to get a team playing to more than the sum of its parts.

    Yes. Obviously...

    I'm not advocating sacking the manager, or talking about anyone else in the position, but Ange is the manager, and for the last two games, he has FAILED.

    Pretty much this. I'm not defending not getting wins at Livingston and at home to Dundee United. He deserves some criticism for that.

    But at the end of the day look at what he has available, and look at how those above him have destroyed the club in the last few years. Through a combination of arrogance and incompetence.

    I don't think many managers would take the job just now, and I can't see them winning the league if they did. It's a poisoned chalice and it's clear that they won't get the backing that they need.

    I'm sad to say it but I think it's time to admit we've been sold a dud.

    Ang has had no joy with Big players leaving and injury, he needs time I think he's the real deal! Compared to the back end of last season we were playing good football till injuries set in!
    I honest don't expect to win the league this year as its the biggest rebuild in years letting youth and and new players mould into a great team going forward, this year is just the start of something special, come January more will come in, all Angs signings look good Barr the Greek? Ajeti needs to be sold in January, a decent striker should be catching into 3 or 4 of them quality balls right across the face of the goal today, we hit the bar 3 times?
    Is it not possible to go and bring in a free transfer short term, there's a few out there

    That was a * embarrassment today.

    Aye we hit the woodwork a few times. But did their goalie have to actually make a save between the goal and Jota’s shot in the last minute?

    Turnbull and Rogic together isn’t working. They’re supposed to be getting onto through balls in advanced positions and they’re two of the slowest players on the pitch every week.

    Ajeti is a dud. Soro is hopeless. I could go on.

    Ange has had rotten luck so far, but games like today are inexcusable. A pathetic performance.

    Ironically- I think we were unlucky, and played better, more according to the tactic than against Rangers or Livingston.

    You idiots don't appreciate that Ange's plan is working to perfection. He always finishes 12th in his first season.

    But in his second season you see a much more competitive Angeball. Mainly because he's been relegated.

    Get Gordon Strachan in as manager, Ange is another John Barnes.

    Tell you one thing he could easily have done better today - not start with a midfield trio that has absolutely no energy and drive.

    I’m not one to slate managers using the benefit of hindsight, but this was picked up by myself and plenty of others as soon as the team was announced.

    I think we’re more or less in agreement to be fair.

    Ange should be doing better but I can’t imagine a more stacked deck against him, so it’s difficult to know what’s going on.

    Everything from McKay being sacked, to having Kennedy as part of the setup, to recruitment and back room fitness team - it honestly couldn’t be worse.

    I know that if we hire a new manager then the core problems won’t be addressed.

    The ship has a hole in it and people want to spend time making sure it’s pointing it in the right direction. It just won’t work.
