We cannot afford to be always having to chase games- it worked against Cove but not all the time ,and today exposed our weaknesses big style. Edinburgh are a big clever team and you will not break them down by hoofing the ball aimlessly up the pitch - bread and milk for Balatoni and co. - just when it seemed we were making progress this year it feels back to the drawing board. Next week up against another in form team and we need to up our basics big style.
Very poor today. Thought Lewis Wilson plated very well. His miskick was a mistake. Don't we all make mistakes? Scally and young Jack were superb when they came on. See was as poor this week as last week. Osadolor shouldn't be starting matches and it's time to give Smith a chance in goals. Loved the sunshine though. Saw Robert and Frank as I left. I hope they weren't on the hill getting a freebie😂 Season tickets still on sale chaps.
Disappointing as we were swamped in the first half, second goal was a peach. Thought See needed a run out after last week but Monday night reserves showed that he has his limitations as we saw today again. Agree young scally is impressive and William Graham gave his usual 110%.
Think if we play ball on the ground more often,we may see the real players and what they could bring to the table.Hard to judge See at the moment,as ball is constantly in orbit every time we get possession. Graham as mentioned,fantastic as usual.

Garbage today. game was all but done after 6 mins. Apart from about 10-15mins of second half we were second best and chasing shadows not due to fact that City are fantastic but the fact that we were dire. They didnt have to graft for the 3 points today which is the most disappointing thing. Please pick a starting 11 and run with it barring injuries or suspensions. Smith back in goals for a starter for me and East and Byrne front two.
Cant add much more. Edonburgh are a strong side. But for me, these kind of results make last weeks even more frustrating. We cannot throw away points freely or we'll very quickly be drawn into a battle at the bottom again.
It wasn't that Edinburgh were good it was just us who were lamentable. I wasn't really that impressed by the opposition but we handed it to them on a plate. Got to agree that we need to sort out the goalkeeping situation. We gave away possession far too easily especially from throw ins. Why try a long throw in when there are other players closer and you don't lose possession and what was that idiot thinking at the throw in when he was warned by the referee about stealing yards and continues to do so resulting in losing the throw in. That is so amateurish. That's as bad a performance as I've seen in a long time and why we don't play the ball on the deck I don't know because we hardly won a ball in the air all day.
