At one point near the end, Ramsey was giving it the, "What the fuck are you even doing it" shrug at Ferguson. 

Tools definitely downed, which is  shame.

On the positive side I thought the defence and central midfield played the ball out well today. 

The attacking options are a real collection of misfits though.

You talk like Hedges is the only thing missing from this being a good side. 

A talented but injury prone player who wants out. 

There's many more issues in the team that Hedges won't be able to fix. 

Hedges would make a huge difference to this side - only player we have that can beat a man and create. Need to be binning useless cunts like Ojo and McRorie and offering their wages to Hedges to stay

Fairly awful performance I thought. 

The midfield 3 doesn't work, no pace, no creativity. 

Front 3 doesn't work, leaves defence exposed in terms of on the wings, no quality at all going forward. 

Thought bates looked good and mccrorie was decent beside him. Gallagher got to do better at goal. 

Depressing as fuck overall. We've run out of ideas. All hope on Hedges. 

Ojo is shite.

When our only attacking subs available are an out of form and past it Jonny Hayes and an even more past it Niall McGinn then there is a fairly obvious issue. 

What position was JET meant to be playing? He certainly wasn't supporting Ramirez.

Ferguson looked disinterested.

 

said to my loon today - “here’s (34 years old) Hayes and McGinn on to save the day.”

I wouldn't keep him for that. I'd keep him because he's trying to play the right way, and it's currently not working, and hope it works. 
 

I think on this current trend we can maybe afford til November before he'll be excused. 
 

Happy to wait and see. 

Aye but remember how long Man U gave Fergie blah blah blah.

Ramirez needs a partner up front , thought Samuels could have came off his wing a bit more , all far to predictable 

Ramirez needs dropped. He’s (been) shite.

Watkins at 9 & try Hedges & JET behind him maybe, similar to the Watkins, Hedges, cunt triumvirate that looked decent this time last year.

Can we get this Samuels boy to the same place that Gurr and Jenks have ended up? 

Every time he got the ball you just knew he was heading down a cul de sac. Easy to defend against. 

Slightly annoyed that they finally sussed on that they needed pace up front and then gambled everything on this rookie.

Nobody I know was in favour at the time, but as fans we (mostly) get behind whomever is appointed. That said, while I'm not downplaying this rotten 7 game run, the initial impact seemed a good one, so why has it gone so drastically wrong so quickly? I also fear we are in danger of repeating history, in that we point fingers at a manager and overlook the wider problems that contribute to the rot. We must not make that mistake again.

It’s been downhill since the rookie mistake at Raith. Any positive momentum was derailed there and then.

Ramirez scored 4 goals from his first 5 chances. Dropped at Raith looked like Darren Mackie reincarnated since. Couldn’t hit a coo’s erse with a banjo. You don’t drop an inform striker. Basics

If this isnt a serious crisis now, I don't know what is. Today's performance had no redeeming features and very difficult to see anything that can be improved. It may have to get a lot worse before it gets better. Cormack's inadequacies are glaringly obvious. Is he any better than Milne?

Should never have appointed his pal but can’t fault the backing he’s gave him. This circa 30 man squad must be costing an absolute fucking fortune in wages

Terrible performance today.

Slow and lacklustre.

Lewis - Looked slow going down for the goal but yet to see it again.

2 fullbacks  very subdued , especially Ramsay.

Bates looked steady

McCrorie still looks like he has a mistake in him.

Brown steady game ,did'nt waste much.

Ojo. did nothing positive.

Ferguson- I've seen tankers turn faster than him.,did nothing of note.

Ramirez - shocking.Did nothing but foul and dive.

Jet - Frustrating

Samuels - Decent 1st half.Give him a try through the middle.

3 subs all shite.

Major difference being Fergie's CV included a Cup Winners Cup, a Supercup, domestic league titles and trophy wins, and victories over some of the biggest clubs in the world, like Real Madrid, Hamburg, and Bayern Munich. Man Utd knew there was a manager who could compete with the best, even with limited resources. You want to stick with that kind of talent, even if it takes a while to get going in a new environment. 

Glass' track record... well, he doesn't have one. I'm not sure what Cormack was expecting, to be honest.

Pretty much my opinion.

Ramirez does drop to the ground a bit easy - maybe a "cultured" player that we have been lacking.  Although most of them back it up by getting wired in.  I feel bad for him though as I think he has goals in him in this league but is having to come back to get involved.

McGinn - why bother.  Maybe thru the middle but doesnt appear to be an option anyone wants to try.

I would try to disagree with you as I thought his hold up play was decent enough. But we've not signed him for hold up play. We've signed him to score goals. When he had the opportunity to score today, he fluffed his lines badly.

I mean let's face it, he isn't going anywhere before Christmas that is for sure and perhaps to an extent, he shouldn't. I hate the culture of sacking managers after winless runs, especially when they haven't been at a club very long. But like many others, I was wary of the appointment initially and it looked like most of us were wrong about him at the start, but Raith was the game where I started to fear that Glass wasn't the right appointment. 

We have done absolutely nothing since we beat that Breidablik, nor do we look like we will and our initial new manager bounce has long since frazzled away, leaving us with a side that looks unlikely to do anything this season. That squad must be costing an arm and a leg and I had concerns about throwing money at Glass when we looked to be struggling financially through Covid. The books wont read well, that I am certain of and  the more this charade carries on, the worse it will be.

DC seems a decent enough bloke, but i dont think he has a clue about how to run a football club and even someone with half a football brain could see that Glass was a massive fucking risk, one that i cant see every paying off. Maybe a bit pant pishing, but I am concerned about the season ahead for sure.

Glass a bit delusional post match.

Asked about the 7 game winless streak & if it worried him…

”I’d be more worried if we weren’t getting in to situations”. 
what situations is this? We’re creating very little.

Also a bit tetchy in general.

Tyrone said “you were promising attacking, swashbuckling football when you took over”…

Glass snapped back “you’re putting words in my mouth - I’ve never said”.

Sounded snappy & an under pressure man to be honest. 

If he’s never said that then he can definitely get to fuck

Apart from the time he passed the ball straight to a St Johnstone player which should have led to a goal.

Similiar to the Qarabag game where it did cost us a goal.

Yeah, I do remember 1 bad pass, but otherwise broke up countless of their attacks.

we were solid enough with McCrorie and Bates.

 

worrying thing for me was the players fitness. Samuels off at 60 mins (probably protected)

McGinn on for JET.

They wanted to take Ojo off, but couldn’t as Bates had to go off. Brown had to get the substitution stopped.

Ramsay was done in the last 20 mins as well
