I think today we could blame the players although the problems do run a lot deeper. We have a coach who only works with the players on the Saturday whilst the team is picked by a guy who does not attend the games and the training appears to be undertaken by an allsorts mixture. However the optimism of last weeks battling performance was slightly muted by the team selection-Watt at RB and although I did think Jordan Allan did deserve a start we never really got to see much of that thanks to some horrendous individual errors and a team's inability to respond to Arbroath's pressing game. The first 15 was going all so well with Stewart being really impressive in attack and we deserved the penalty lead- probably the last time Conroy outfoxed an Arbroath player. Then enter Rohan who managed to fumble a harmless looking cross for Swankie'score.That geed up Arbroath but a counter attack from Furtado should have been finished. Then came the collapse-Watt bundles into the forward and penalty/No one matches Denholm run to a cross from right again/MacDonald is so feart of the goalie that he dilly dallies and is short with pass back for Linn to score. At HT we bring on a RB and Higgins does ok in comparison to Watt, but we give goals up for free- Denholm all on his own for a through ball/McGregor heads it back to set up their forward/we pass the ball back and Rohan blasts it off Tubby McCord( He had a very good game) and he curls it in from touch line. So embarrassing and far worse than the 7-2 defeat against the Rovers. Arbroath did all an organised team should do on their windy home soil. Credit to Stewart -the rest? Ferguson should be dropped/Conroy rested/ Watt played in the right position/Higgins at RB and most of the rest need a rollicking. Cairns is not a midfielder. Funny that I got back to Airdrie at 1 past 7!
