I actually agree with @tm4tj, White was no worse than the rest today. But let's turn your statement round.You are always the goto fan to stick up for White. Why don't you stick up for Brad Mackay

Todorov had a good game v Queen of the South (I was there) and scored a goal but gets dropped today.  Why on earth?   On his worst day Toddy is better, more industrious, not scared to tackle, than Whi

Why persist in playing White?  He was rubbish again today ?

Why does Robbo persist with White? Out of form at present. Robbo only seems to want to push attacking play when we are down instead of out of the blocks from the start. Hoofing long ball to an out of form striker ain't going to win games. Toddy should be on from the start. I'm beginning to wonder if Robbo is the man to take us up - he seems to lack ideas and imagination. It's the same sh1te each week. Poor and getting worse.

We should be so much better than we are. We have good players and a good squad. We have exciting attacking players yet we don't play to their strengths. We bypass them all the time by playing aimless long balls to a striker who doesn't hold the ball or win many headers. We need to get the ball on the deck and get our wingers on the ball because that is where we are most dangerous. This long punts up the park is garbage. Sort it out Robbo.

Are we going to have another season like we did when Robbo constantly played Baird when everyone could see he was Utter mince .Why oh why are we  playing whyte week in week out . Robertson’s team selection today was hard to fathom . Was that actually our best 11 that started ??

Leaderless and gutless. Terrible ref, yes but we deserved nothing from that. Slow to close down and track back. Storey and White both a waste of shirt. Every time we have a chace to close the gap we bottle it.

Can't understand why Robbo persists with White. He's absolutely unable to hold or head a ball. Given his size he should be winning at least 50% of all balls in the air.

Trafford MOM not because he was skilful but more for his effort which was missing in all the others, woeful performance and lucky we only lost 3.

Must agree with the comment about Trafford - he was the only one (apart from Ridgers) who showed a bit of passion and effort. Unfortunately their teammates lacked both in another gutless display

Sure, Shankland should have been off for elbowing McCart (I've seen the TV footage).

Sure, Keatings missed a sitter at 0-1, heading wide of an open goal from 3 yards out.

Nevertheless, that was a reality check. For long periods we didn't look like we belonged in the same league as United. 

Our midfield is a huge problem. Carson and Trafford (and Vincent) don't lack effort but they are rotten in possession. With no chance of them playing a killer pass teams can sit in, concentrate on denying Keatings space and wait for us to punt a high ball at White which he will probably lose (on the occasions he wins it, no one is ever looking for the second ball).

God, we miss Welsh.

United just looked much more streetwise. The threat of Shankland is enough to induce panic - at the first goal both McCart and Tremarco flung themselves in front of his shot, which left McMullan in space on the right. Rooney got his feet all mixed up and stuck the centre into his own net. He really wasn't the same afterward.

Walsh looked bright when he came on but Storey in contrast was dreadful and gave away a stupid penalty with a petulant, unnecessary trip. Not very professional. By then Clark's goal had already killed us off. He put his foot through it but it beat Ridgers at his near post and I feel the goalie should be saving that. 

After that our heads were gone and it could have been five.

Hard to know where we go from here. Aside from starting Walsh we aren't exactly blessed with other options.

Yet again we fail to score and fail to really threaten them in any way whatsoever. 

If the “go-to” forward can’t do his job (i.e. score goals) and the manager keeps picking him as the first team starter, who’s really to blame? The striker that can’t score or the manager that keeps playing him?
Yogi did it with Liam Hughes (remember him?), F*ran did it with Doumbouya, Robbo did it with Baird and is now doing it with White. 

I’m in agreement with other posts in saying that there’s a lack of passion in the team, it’s been looking that way for quite some time now. 

Positives? 
Trafford did well, didn’t give up and looked like he wanted to win, Carson does well in the midfield or defence, just a steady player, thought Walsh did alright for the time he was on, hopefully he’ll be up at full fitness soon, should definitely be starting too.

I was getting a coffee during the Shankland/McCart incident and the Tremarco yellow card shortly afterwards so can’t comment on them. Would like to see if they’re in the highlights.

Why drop Toddy?

White has being awful last few games. Guess this will be a game of the long ball and no headers won up front

Prophetic ?

Everyone seems to see this ... but Robbo. Completely infuriating. 

I really feel heart sorry for Todorov.

Think it's time for Robbo to go hopefully Hearts will come in for him in some capacity he's no gonna get us promoted wer a mid table club bereft of direction who play awful long ball football to White who is 1 of the worst strikers Iv ever seen ! Gutless and clueless most weeks especially at home never play anything even close to decent football until the games lost ! Defo Robbo oot!
