    Looking at that camera view behind the goal with McGregor trotting slowly when the guy was going by Duffy didn't look great and not giving a * attitude but the rest of the players looked like that .
    That tonight was the worst defending I have seen since the early 90s when McNally and co were playing in defence a * shambles and whos the defence coach as they should be handed their P45 today .

    He's never a defensive midfielder, gets steam rolled time and time again. Especially in games against the huns for example.

    Plays a couple of nice passes every now and then and everyone bigs him up.

    Twice now he's recently hinted that we don't know what we're doing tactically. Also that half the team are trying to score, and not play as a unit. For him to come out and say that tells you there are big problems behind the scenes. Alarming stuff.

    He was pish against Prague and that is quite something because I can’t think off the top of my head another properly * performance from him.

    It’s arguably one of the biggest reasons that alarm bells should be ringing just now, your mr consistent over several seasons is now being dragged down.

    If I interpret CalMac's comments correctly it sounds to me that they take to the field with no clear instructions as to their individual role, in other words they are just a bunch of guys sent out for a kick about. That is alarming to say the least and I wonder how Lenny will react to that ? Will he take it for what it is worth and set about galvanizing the team spirit or will the disharmony that currently exists be further poisoned ?
    I'm finding it difficult to get fired up for the game tomorrow but hopefully will have recovered by 12noon.

    That’s been very clear long before CalMac’s comments after Thursday mate. I suppose his interview just compounded the fact.

    I listened to an interview on Open Goal, I believe it was Mulgrew, where they talked about Lenny and said basically this. Lenny just tells his team to go out and win. Think's he's MON.

    Giving away the penalty up at Aberdeen; diving in again for Prague second goal when he should just stand up; Sauntering back for the Prague third goal.

    CalMac is a great player in general. But at the moment, he is a bit of a calamity defensively and, as someone said, looks like Casper the ghost just now in an attacking sense.

    I guess that about sums it up, if it worked then it certainly isn't working now with this group of players. We have a heavy schedule of games ahead of us and one in which we cannot afford one slip up in the chase for 10. Unless there is dramatic
    change in the dressing room then I am truly concerned for the immediate future. To think before this season opened up I like many others, was convinced that we would win this league in a canter, it is hard to grasp how in the name of jeez we are in the position we are currently in.

    Exactly, completely different teams in different eras. The Lenny method worked when he first came as the team was still playing Brenda's football. He has shown himself to be tactically inept time and time again. Players like Mcgregor have to take some responsibility for their lacklustre attitudes but I do understand their frustration.

    Not impressed with him yesterday, I could have made all those passes he made.
    Never makes a brave pass, always the safe pass. No dynamics in his play.

    Turning in to Brown mark 2. Except he's not as good defensively

    We have far more to worry about than him. Even if his form has dipped the boy always gives a decent effort.

    Not worried about Mcgregor in the slightest.
