    It's not realistic, we're six games in. The scum are just as bad as we are at the minute.

    We're missing our best striker, best winger, best midfielder and best defender.

    Ange will no doubt be successful at a club in Europe but with his win rate and philosophy its just not for us. 3 away losses on the trout, hardly created a chance there. Not what we need. At home you can see an improvement but away we're actually going backwards and that takes some doing.

    Agree that it was a * poor Lennon special out there.

    But....

    BUT...

    we're still in the middle of a rebuild, very short on personell, injury ridden, a quick turnaround from a hard shift in Europe, and against our * bogey of all bogey teams... on a plastic pitch.

    Excuses Excuses, yes. But that doesn't invalidate them.

    Far too soon to get the pitchforks out for new players and the knives out for our new manager.

    That being said, lessons need to be learned sharpish. Circumstances being what they are, can excuse it, but not won't forgive a repetition.

    Players I was excited about looked * woeful out there. Jota looked like a player with bad breath could dispossess him, and Juranovic looked like a * deer in headlights. Turnbull, as another poster rightly pointed out, only looks comfortable when we are in ascendency. When we struggle, he looks slow, lethargic and * damp as October.
    Tough shithole to go to, and some of our newer guys looked like they didn't have a * scooby this was an actual league game until it was too late.

    Get the squad back to fitness, give the newer guys time to settle, give the manager more time to put his stamp on the team, THEN, only then, will I judge.

    For now, let's just put it down to another * * page in this * * chapter. Hopefully we are getting close to a plot twist.

    Guys like jota and Abada, couple of wee silky players with nice touches but both weighing in about 9 stone, make Taylor look like a bodybuilder, getting swatted aside by the big Livingston defence
    Boys will both need to bulk up and toughen up or will get bossed in the spl

    Sound. Forget February.

    We’ve lost all three away league games we have played.

    One of them against a newly promoted team.

    One of them against the worst team in the league.

    You say they’ve drawn to Motherwell and lost to Dundee United. You’re only proving my point.

    They beat us without their manager even being there for * sake, what does that tell you about us if they’ve drawn at home to Motherwell and lost to Dundee Utd?

    So many deluded * on here it’s crazy.
    A long * season? Plenty of time for us to drop more points is all that equates to.

    Keep burying your head in the sand all you want, it’ll make it harder to take I’m afraid when we inevitably fall further behind.

    absolutely pathetic. we've not won there for 14 * years, its ridiculous now.
    1 win in the last 5 games, 3 away defeats in the league in a row.
    6 wins, 1 draw and 7 defeats in all competative games this season.

    This is almost as bad as Lennon now.

    Postegoclue better buck up before he find hismelf unemployed.

    We needs those crosses on the deck and early to run the ball between the keeper and behind their final defensive line.
    We do not seem to be coming to the ball to receive the pass.
    Too many build up passes allows their defense time to get their defenders in shape.

    Soro changed the tempo of our game as soon as he came on and was dynamic with good forward passes through the middle. in the first half we seemed to simply believe we would eventually score instead of really attempting to and underestimated the opposition.

    I thought Livingston played with a lot of spirit and deserved to win. The only decent shot on goal was by CCV and was a certain goal if it was a yard more to the right of the post.

    I was impressed with Boli today.

    I was totally unimpressed with the result and was expected a win today prior to the game starting. No excuses.

    We simply need to be more direct and ruthless and both midfield and forwards need to get their shooting boots on rather than expecting to walk it into the net. Enough with the high balls into the box - we do not have a Tony Hately or a Sutton in this squad for that type of game.

    Abada was poor today but is anyone truly surprised? He's a 19 year old winger, he was always going to be inconsistent. This is where lack of squad depth is going to cost us.

    This place is bipolar at times lol.

    Abada is pretty inconsistent tho, but he is only 19 so see how he gets on as the season progresses

    Ange doesnt seem to change though, at home we have space and can use the pace on the wings etc, away with 7/8 defenders all packed we dont have the space, throwing balls into a lone striker is * stupid, midfielders all standing idle, no one arriving in the box, we are * if it keeps up.

    They were mate but honestly were starting to sound like the 16/17 Huns forum
    Actually feel sorry for the fans at the game and the people that paid £20 for Livingston ppv
    Would have been better just handing the money to some homeless person at least you would ve got some decent use from it

    Pish result. We looked void of ideas. Too scared to shoot. No leaders. Jota needs to toughen up. Boli still clueless and gives it away too often.

    Impressed by CCV - solid and can tackle and reads game well. Will be a good partner for Julien.

    Ajeti is improving and was unlucky a few times. He will come good.

    Mowbrayesque St Mirren performance, Livingston could have won 3-0 if it wasn't for Hart but stay positive HH.

    Even though I didn’t see the match today, I honestly thought it would’ve been a 3-0 or 4-1 shot. Was supremely confident.
