I'm with you Risso. Drop him and play Nyland.

That has to be the last we see of the bald clown. Against Spuds you could see why we brought him in, but he's turned to utter shit just like so many before him with our excellent coaching.

Am I right in saying Reina has won one game since he's been here and kept no clean sheets?

In the Jan window I didn't want us to waste a loan spot and wages on him - I wanted us to stick with Nyland who was in good form.  But in fairness he started excellently and I admitted I was wrong - he brought a real assurance and great distribution to the team.

Now?  I think I was right and wrong thinking I was wrong.

It was a cock up but lets not go overboard, he's been pretty good overall. That said, i see no reason why we shouldn't play Nyland instead, it's possible he could be our number 1 next season if we go down.

He's cost us points since he arrived. Looks laboured for every goal conceded

Terrible mistake for the first goal but I think hes been impressive overall. I dont think the change of formation will suit him as the full backs wont push up so much do give him space to pick passes.

Id stick with him for the duration.

Nyland for me.

And for me, he seems to have come on leaps and bounds under Neil Cutler and it was harsh dropping him imo.

Jed Steer for me.  Spend the saving in the midfield.  If there is any money left over spend it in the midfield.  Without John McGinn our midfield is so wank it makes the attack and the defence fall apart.

Yes to Steer, but no idea when he is expected to return from injury.
