I spent a good amount of time and effort defending Derek Adams and his charges on Twitter so it would have been nice for the club to get a result and somewhat vindicate me- even with a draw. But no, they lost 2-1 to a Kilmarnock side that aspire to be mediocre.
That’s three played, three lost, a goal differential that is already at -6, and perhaps worst of all, to three clubs we’ll likely be battling with to avoid finding ourselves in one of the relegation spots come the end of the season.
Derek Adams and his staff need to sort things out in very short order (with Dundee United up next that could be tough) or it may be too late and they may be watching the rest of the season on the telly- the “torch and pitchfork” brigade are already out in full force.
Speaking for myself, I will not be returning to my “optimism at all costs and in the face of all odds” approach that I have used in the past, but I will instead be adopting a different approach, a zen-like approach. I am simply going to let this season “happen.”
I will report on the ups and downs of the club, but I will remain serene, tranquil.
