“A bit disappointed,” Strachan – Beginning to run out of words, so sad to watch this pantomime

What did we learn from last night’s game that we didn’t know already? On the playing side, not a lot really, same old, same old.

What I hadn’t appreciated is that some of those players can do really good impersonations of other members of the team who were not playing. Just when you think it won’t happen, Laxalt takes off Christie to a tee by giving away a needless foul in our half leading to some calamitous defending and a goal. Playing as a false no 9, Mikey Johnson was everywhere but in the box, never beat a man and can trap the ball further than I can kick it. Remind you of anyone?

Don’t want to be too hard on the players on the field last night. Some of them may be culpable but others in the club are more to blame and are much better at impersonations.

This season has been and continues to be a disaster. I thought we had turned things around? Just shows you, you should never believe what a bunch of impersonators leak to their favourite reporter. Sure, there are mitigating factors and some things haven’t gone our way, but if life was fair, Elvis would still be alive and all the impersonators would be dead. A bit of advice for those non playing members of staff, the damage has been self inflicted, accept this and move on. Please stop defending the defence, the trip to Dubai and each other.

We are a failing club. We can continue on that downward path or make some changes both on and off the park. I strongly recommend the latter.
