Well done to Hamilton, you certainly seem to know how to get a result against us down there.
I thought we played really well last night, certainly a lot better than the game at the beginning of the season, with McLean and Jack being absolute standouts.
Yet again, when faced with a stubborn defence throwing everything on the line we just couldn't get the break and lacked any guile to break through them. Lost count of how many terrible corners McGinn put in. Folk moan about our short corners but when McGinns corners are repeatedly terrible we have to try something else. Someone on the train back into town was saying we've scored more goals from set pieces than anyone else in the league which seems remarkable given how often our corners are utterly useless.
Rooney is the other concern. I agree he's not on top form, despite the number of goals he has scored, and has missed a number of very good changes in recent weeks, looks even slower and lost his sharpness. If on form he'd easily be on 25+ goals already. Sadly, esp with Stockley out we have few options.
We've been on a great run and it was inevitable we'd lose at some point, and if we had to lose I'd much rather it was last night than Sunday.
Still 9pts clear with Hearts and The Rangers* in disarray and a home cup QF to look forward to, COYR
