Heaton, Snodgrass, Elmo, Jedi, Chester, Albert, Kod are a few more.

Snodgrass aside, I'm not sure how much premier league experience this lot have? honestly haven't checked

Well Heaton, Snodgrass, Elmo, Jedi and Chester had absolutely loads.  Albert and Kodjia hardly any.

Fair enough - except for Chester. Forget everything I posted just now.

Mad to think we still had 3 subs left at 1-0 up.

I'd love to know what goes through his head at times at critical moments in the second half.

We've seen countless times at VP when away teams are winning 1-0 and their keepers are taking half an hour to take a goal kick and they're making a sub every minute to slow the game down.

As soon as Calvert Lewin missed Nakamba and Gulibert should've been on surely? 60 seconds later it was 1-1 and we've nearly run out of games now.

He'll never be an established prem manager for us or anywhere else until he learns the art of closing a tight game out with substitutions and time managing/wasting.

I never expected him to be so tactically inept. We've really struggled all season with the basics. Anyway, we're gone and so I expect is Dean.

Weve lost so many points from winning positions and it is primarily down to game management. He needs to go.

Aside from McGinn.. can anyone name a single player that Dean has improved this season?

We are god awful, have been god awful and I don't see a light at the end of this tunnel.

I cannot watch our variation of the 4-3-3 anymore. And honestly, I'm sick of Dean. Don't care who he is or how we got here, he hasn't got it in him to motivate and build a team at this level. No fire, no plan B, no accountability, no progression.. you can leave.

Yes the tactics are poor. But also, its pretty special to get a bunch of players that are still in touch with survival, against the epitome of an on the beach team, looking so ponderous and lacking in intent. The guy clearly has no leadership qualities.

I can't bear to hear whatever gormless nonsense he dreams up for the post-match interview. Switched off for the night. Football is soul-destroying.

He was okay on Sky.  No excuses, but you can tell he wasn't happy with two or three of our players.

Smith sickens me. A better manager would have us on 35-36 points, at least. Thrown so much away.

This , when it keeps happening then its down to more than just the players.

Regardless of your feelings about McGinn.. you see where I'm going with this.

Yes McGinn got steadily worse from his first game onwards, even before his injury. And even when he was bang in form he played better for Scotland. Smith is a shit Midas.
