Aye, I'd agree with all of that. Wilson was really hesitant at first, but he seemed to settle a bit more as the game went on. I did expect him to be a wee bit better on the ball than he was though, but I'll out that down to inexperience. Mango's uncompromising in the air, so I suppose he was always going to be a bit different.
Dick is to Boomer what Davie Smith is to Wardrop. He's alright, but we're definitely not as good with him in the team as we are with the first choice. His pace gets him out of a few issues, and he's alright in the air, but he offers next to nothing going forward.
I love Beany, but I'd agree. It'll obviously take him a bit of time to get up to sharpness, but last night (for the most part) he was just half a second slow. Nisbet is pretty much what I expected. Very meh.
If we can keep the front four of Burt (who, final ball aside, actually looked confident running at people, and has an eye for a pass), Froxy (), Stirling (tremendous last night, even if he was struggling a wee bit for fitness by the end) and Stewart (beginning to look like our most important player given the difference when he's not on the park) along with Walsh when he's back, fit, then I think we should be quite nice to watch going forward. Given I'm resigned to ninth now, playing some entertaining stuff would be a nice wee boost.
I did wonder if that might've been it. Although two games in a short space of time (including one on Astro) probably doesn't suit him. He was colossal at the weekend though.
The difference when Stewart came on against TNS (certainly on the tele) and when he went off last night was incredible.
