    I wouldn't have started Fergie. I would have played McLaughlin at right back and played Paddy wide right, and moved Dallas back over to the left.

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Nick a point against Bosnia and we will beat Austria at home. At this stage having 0 points avoiding relegation would be a bonus.

    Post Mortem

    Any decent side is built on a solid defence and a good spine down the middle of the team. We had 2 young players who are vastly inexperienced in our defence, our best centre back and our right back [ I don't think it`s McNairs best position anyway ] are not getting much game time for their clubs. Our captain and the player who makes us tick is also not getting games for his club and is nowhere near showing the level he has done for us I the past. Dallas and Ferguson for all their work rate and commitment don't give us the quality we need in wide areas so even against average teams we are going to find it hard. Whether people like him or not Lafferty is our best striker but when he decides he doesn`t want to play for what ever reason it doesn`t help matters. Losing experienced players like Big G, Hughes and Brunt is going to be a loss and it will take time to get the new guys up to speed. We are in a transition period now and we just have to take these sort of results on the chin and move on. It will get better.

    Squad formation v Bosnia

    Never mind them, can we be as good again as we were in that first game ?

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    If it hadn`t been for Allan McGregor it would have been a lot worse. They got lucky with only a 2-1 defeat.

    Score Predictions

    Like you say about not scoring, that`s what bothers me. Where are the goals coming from ? I don`t think we are as solid at the back now as we used to be. I guess that will improve when the new players get more experience and more used to each other.

    Hate to say it but i feel we will struggle to get anything from these next 2 games. Hope i`m wrong though.

    Squad v Austria (A) and Bosnia (A)

    +1. What i wouldn't like to see is people giving him abuse when/if he does come back to play for us. We all know he makes stupid decisions, lets hope this is just another one of them. If/when he comes back let him prove that he deserves to be in the squad by showing a good attitude and not walking straight back in to the team, maybe that way he can earn some respect from the fans. It really is a strange decision from him given his comments about how professional things now are at Rangers, how much he is enjoying things there and how much fitter he feels from that.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    Wish this game wasn't happening but the fact that it is lets just hope its a low key game and we get it out of the way and move on. No doubt there will be those who just cant wait to get their phones out to show themselves singing certain songs then posting it on various sites to show how big they are.

    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    With the Austrian game just days after this game and the possibility of it being very important to us I really doubt Mon will even consider playing anything near our strongest side. Plus I'm sure none of the players that do play will be thinking of this game as anything other than a run out and won't be going out to kick lumps out of each other. Well I hope they won't ☺️

    Starting XI v Israel

    I know its early days and hard to tell but he looks like he could be more useful than Jones in the future. Hope he stays injury free and will get better as he adapts to full time football.

    Score Prediction v Israel

    McNair isn't a right back, I thought he was poor for most of the game last night. Think if he is going to play for us it needs to be in the midfield. Jones looked clueless last night and when it came to defending he didn't seem to know where he should be, Mon was pointing things out to him a few times. Good performance and nice to get the win.

    Starting XI v Israel

    I think Mon will start with as strong a team as possible, with the only change being Boyce and Grigg starting.They did make a difference when they came on. Even though we played well on Saturday a win would be very welcome, don't want " Haven't won in x number of games " crap being talked about every time we have a game now. As usual expect to see changes made throughout the second half, would like to see Whyte get a bit of a run out and maybe do a Smyth and score on his debut.

    Post mortem

    The 2 new players need a bit of time to settle in and will get better without a doubt. Like many on here I thought we played well and all that was lacking was a bit more quality with the final pass.

    Post mortem

    As soon as BPF was running out to that situation my first thought was don't touch the player as he will go down and may have made up the ref,s mind to send BPD off. Having said that a more experienced keeper may well have done a bit better. The lad is still learning and will make more mistakes as he learns the game. I think/Hope he will be our keeper for a long time to come. For me it was definitely Cathcarts weak header that was the main reason for that goal.
