Again it’s fairly hard to disagree with the majority of what he says.

Gary’s a good lad, but **** me he can slaver.  Moaning about having a large squad, yet probably moaning about the number of injuries as well.

I’m looking forward to us picking up maximum points with a couple of good performances.  Firstly, because I’m a Hearts fan and second, to see gobshites like Mackay pop back in their box.  

 

At  least he’s spreading his ire beyond his personal beef with Levein. Diversifying.

We DO have what appears to be a lot of players and nobody could surely argue that a huge amount of money

has been wasted over the past 3 years on a significant number of players who were 'duds'.

Another pish opinion piece offering no context.

 

Anyone could write the crap he comes out with these days. No need to throw in facts about what other clubs a similar size are like, or how many are youth players who are progressed to the first team (so won't be on big money) etc.

 

The Evening News is full of clickbait shite, and Gary's column is nothing other than just that.

 I agree.

Nothing startling, just a concern about the size of squad.

I enjoyed his Romanov comment. Aye we would be losing our shit at 35 players considering the likes of Obua were on 15k a week, something that'll never happen under the current ownership

Just read Mackay's comments. Hard to disagree but not saying anything that hasn't been said before. Seems though that if you even dare question or have an opinion on what's going on there are folk that can't wait to pick you up on it. How dare someone show concern about the club they love. Mackay must be a hibby then!

It’s possible to have a debate about the manager, style of football, results etc. but Mackay is talking complete and utter nonsense in that article.

Tbh I was scrolling down expecting to read more and then the article suddenly stopped and I started to wonder if he actually gets paid for this.

This. Every article is the same - some thought he’s had but then not bothered to

research the facts or consider plausible explanations.

Have no issue with someone saying something negative just so long as it's accurate.

 

We don't have 35 players on first team wages so his his point is null and void! At most we have 20* players on 1st team wages supplemented by 8 youth players and a loan keeper.

 

*21 if Olly Lee stays

Difference being, they're sitting joint top of the league with 9 points from 3 games and we're joint bottom and very lucky to have 1 point from 3 games.

So you think we should cut our squad further to catch up with them? With our injury record?

If we are ever to have any chance of challenging for anything in this league, we need a big squad. I would have thought was obvious by now, especially after last season when we had a run of injuries that blew the wheels clean off our wagon. The issue is teh quality of the players, which I optimistically think has been addressed this summer.

Do you think we competed against Celtic or just looked to contain them ?

Do you disagree with the part that we have a really good squad ?

Do you disagree with the fact that we should be doing better ?

He's right about quality over quantity though. It's not that long ago that CL was saying he was going to bring in one or two signings and here he is about to make number eight for this window.

No, i dont. 

I don't have a problem with that many players if they're good enough. 

Question is, are they good enough?

If so, why are we underperforming?

Eight is an entirely normal amount of signings to make in a summer window. It's less than any of last seasons top 6 other than kilmarnock. Which of our signings this summer would you say aren't good enough?

You think that the reason for that, is the fact we have 30 players? 🙃

The way we are run there is no danger of us paying out what we cant afford, biggest problem is keeping all the players happy.

Agree with quality over quantity, but would prefer it if Gary would at least wait until after the window has closed as I suspect we’ll let between 5-10 leave permanently or on loan.

Sorry if I offend, but....Are you really that simple?

 

You think Anne Budge, an award winning business woman, is allowing our manager to have 2 salaries? 2???

 

The comments section of the evening news articles is like seeing the folk down at Cowgate at 3 am in the morning

They have better players, better coaches and a better managers. 

That's why they're at the top of the league. It's that Simple.

This maybe obvious to you but how do you come to this illogical reasoning?
