    Yes he did. He had a subs bench he could’ve used
    Bitton instead of soro may have made a difference
    Moffat could’ve got a half hour cameo and changed the game
    Let’s be honest, despite a weak bench, the players on it couldn’t have been as bad or worse than the * already on the park

    Bitton or Soro, is a bit like Sophie's choice for me..

    Moffat, at 1-1 probably not the right time to throw him in.. If we were cruising aye..

    It was a poor performance and Ange takes responsibility for it, but his options to change it up were, severely limited.. That's not an excuse, thats just a fact..

    He needs time, time to put his own stamp on the squad.

    The attacking players he's brought in, Kyogo, Abada and Jota are exciting..

    There was nothing to lose by giving him a chance instead of an ineffective Ajeti. I'd start the boy against Leverkusen.

    I think we could get a few drubbings in Europe with our style but interestingly we have only conceded 5 goals in the league so far. With Kyogo back in the side we will be a different animal. McGregor too but I have to be honest the football can be a but too gung ho for me. I prefer a more controlled approach. Pragmatic rather than the Ange idealism. This next month is it for me. A few more league defeats and languishing in the bottom half come October will surely be seen as utterly unacceptable- injuries or not.

    I get the hate toward Ajeti, but seriously? Putting a 19 year old B team midfielder in ahead of our only recognised striker.

    Have we learnt nothing?

    He's a winger for a start.. Tough ask for him to make an impact in a game like yesterday.

    We've learnt that Ajeti's a fat useless *. That's why we've been driven to this.

    I'd have put Jota through the middle and stuck Moffat wide for a bit of movement

    Aye, it might, if you're giving your players instructions on just how to change things up.

    Thought he was a striker, but okay. Move Abada into Ajeti's spot, if Moffat is a winger.

    Tbf Jota was gash when he moved to striker against Raith. Completely nullified his game.

    I thought there could have been a player there if he got minutes and decent service. He had both yesterday and was hopeless. Had to step up and be counted but let us down. Extremely disappointing.

    It would have been impossible for him to be worse than Ajeti. I would have taken Ajeti off as a point of principal he was hiding almost all second half

    You are spot on here. The knives are out already, just think if this continues for another month or so. You see a lot of fans talk a good game about giving him time but that's based on them thinking the results are coming asap. Its not long before the same ones are wanting him binned after a run of defeats and draws and that's regardless of them blaming the board for things. The logic just goes from '* board....back the manager' to '* board hired * manager'.

    It goes back to your point about the line we've been fed from those that know him that he needs a season to get things clicking. A season!! It will be the first time I've ever seen that time given if things keep going this way. In reality he'll be out on his ear in a few months if it doesn't pick up pronto.

    It's a poisonous club right now that effects the manager and the players. This is why I cant bring myself to blame Ange. Yes he has made mistakes but the club is a shambles from top to bottom.

    Totally agree what is it with some of our support it's the biggest rebuild in years and the injuries has been horrendous and our bench is even more horrendous with no attacking options and I blame the board as we made 20 million profit from transfers and would have been better spent bringing in two attacking midfielders and another striker and maybe we wouldn't be in this trouble .

    It's why I didn't want Ajeti starting yesterday..

    I wanted Abada through the middle as he has the pace and looks more of a threat on goal..

    Play anyone else on the right..

    Another game where Ange has went with the wrong guy up top..
