Jack Hamilton was getting slagged by a certain few some weeks ago. Thought he was great yesterday, and provided an assist also. 


He’s been getting better since Dundee game.

Said it before, and have done for weeks. In his whole career Dobbie has been at his best when played off a battering ram of a striker to bully centre halves and clear space. First O'Connor, then Dykes, now Hamilton. Young Jack is nowhere near the level of Sean and Lyndon yet but he puts in a hell of a shift and competes for everything.

When Dobbie plays with clever technical players as a partner like Lyle, El Bakhtaoui or Oliver it sometimes comes off and looks great (Dobbie and Lyle destroying St Mirren away stands out) but generally he does better playing off a big man. The formation we have now is working at the moment  with Fais playing as a winger (lets see how long it takes clubs to work out how to deal with it).

Steady.

Yesterday was great, but posts like this just remind me of some we read in January.

The thing is though we arent so reliant on one player this time. Also a few injuries last season and wed be buggered but this season there are guys on the bench who can contribute.

In January, there was also a feeling that we'd recruited really well and were set for a great run in, following a couple of excellent performances.  

Nobody needs a reminder of what followed.

Hamilton put himself about really well yesterday and hopefully him and Dobbie can build a good partnership. I'd like to see him winning more headers but I can't fault his effort.

Possibly confusing Hamilton with Brownlie for the assist to Dobbie for the first goal. They look similar from a distance.

This.
No idea if it was handball or not but it certainly wasnt over the line.

Holt also appeared to be complaining that the defender had wrestled him on his way to the ball.

I certainly didn’t expect that on my way down the road yesterday. A great performance from everyone. I don’t think we are playing particularly good football but we scrapped and harried brilliantly.

After a torrid first ten minutes where it looked like McMullan was going to run riot the defence settled well. The back three were superb. McCrorie looks so steady and Brownlie has always had the attributes to be a good defender and he seems to have improved his concentration. Also pleasing to see the beginning of a relationship between Hamilton and Dobbie with El Bakhtaoui looking like he can play a good supporting role coming in off the wing.

Night and day from my last game at Clyde.

Yes, I'd actually thought it was Hamilton's header across goal, before I got home to learn it was Brownlie.

This.

I recently watched the YouTube video of his early goals and you can see he thrived on the chaos O’Connor created, his anticipation, calmness and ability to just delay a fraction of a second longer than you thought possible make him particularly effective when the defence has been bashed out of position.

I actually think him and Dykes had a really good understanding and some great interplay but undoubtedly he played the battering ram role as well.

Great result but my MOTM would be the manager. How he has got the team playing is astonishing  Playing McMullan out of the game was a big reason for the result. Just wish AJ would organise Scotrail and TP Exp as well  Cant wait for next weeks game and we will not underestimate a fine part time team. 2-0 would be a good result.  As an aside Dobbie's second goal was from a man back to form

This. His effort is quality but he jumps as if he's expecting to whack his head of something above him.

Have I missed the official announcement of Wullie Gibson taking over from Eddie Warwick at Palmerston? Heard he was in charge of reserves today v Kilmarnock....

Nope, there has been no official announcement. He is working on an interim basis while we await formal approval for his appointment.

Would be good to see Gibson get it. A role model for younger players, and someone who used to coach younger QoS teams. Has given plenty back to the Dumfries community
