Partick thistle (last game before the winter break)

Sounds radical but worth a try I suppose...

we are 20 yards inside particks half a simple 5 yard give and go pass down the line would have put real presure on there defence so what do we do turn round and kick it 70 yards back to our keeper its this kind of crap that has put us bottom of the table we are great at putting it sideways or back but point blank refuse to go forward well I have some advice for our team try kicking the ball at the opponents keeper for a change and see how that works
Yes, it was quite incredible really and just shows a negative mentality. Lindsay made space for himself and invited the short pass but instead, Routis inexplicably turned round and booted it away back to the keeper, which then led to Davies' equally inexplicably casual attempt at a pass-back. Mind you, Routis' go-to pass tends to be a 70-yarder, regardless of who he's trying to pass to..

Spot on !!
We have been doing this for ages, how many times do you hear the fans shouting "get the ball up the park !"
There is a time and place for passing the ball back but it is not when you are in the other team's half and there are attacking options available. If Routis hadn't passed the ball back then Davies wouldn't have had the opportunity to make the mistake, although, to be fair, Davies should have booted it up the park first time.
We should make a rule of not passing back unless there is absolutely no other option.
How many times, when we are losing towards the end of a game do we put pressure on the opposing team by playing the ball right up into the box, why can't we do that during the game and attack instead of p****ng about passing back and fore in the defence?

Some good points on the passing back.
Not sure how/why, but this style of play has been going on on for several years now and under other managers.
We did it with Adams, Jim Mac, and here we are still doing it with Coyle.
Therefore, is it reasonable to conclude that is player problem?
Lost count the times over the last few years, a simple 5 yards pass which is obviously on, turns out t9 be long hump back to the keeper, defender.
We have lost games as result of this style of play, last Saturday another example.
Teams are switched on to it, they pounce on it and bang, goal down.
Change of style, mentality please!
