Oooooh Yes sir! I can boogie, but I need a certain song!

 

What a servant to the club, a true gentleman and a scholar!

 

Also hung like a horse, with a helluva bush!  Allegedly.

 

Yours, ever in your debt Andy!

bet we win today with him as captain

Didn't win but the defence looked tighter and more balanced with a left footed player on the left hand side.

Some amount of shite being spoken afterwards on Sportsound.

What are they saying? Is it the "McInnes shouldn't have been sacked, careful what you wish for" type stuff or something else.

Then Glass shouldn't have been sacked. Considine should get whatever he wants etc.

Simple solution. Don't listen to Sportsound.

Quite an awkward lap the players had at the end. Mcgeouch's daughter wouldn't hurry up and didn't want carried. He ended up getting his own awkward, long ovation from the Dick Donald stand.

A fantastic send off for a nothing player 🤣

The linesman said this was a header........

Not a header but it is a clear shove in the back. No penalty was the correct decision even if it was arrived at for the wrong reason.

He put his arm up there because he was about to be pushed in the back! That makes sense.

A stonewall penalty, which for once the ref has seen. The linesman didn't even flag. So it was just the pressure from Anwick that led to the mistake. I see BBC then gave him MOM.

What did Dave C say to the refereeing supervisor to lead to these mental decisions?

Not what that photograph suggests.  Bates has his hands forward and may even be touching the player but it's not a non-contract sport and there's no evidence he actually applied any force.  His hands are nowhere near where they would need to be causing that arching of the back.  The arching looks like it's caused by the player trying to reach the ball with his hand.

More to the point, the referee was well placed to if there was a push and didn't see one.  The decision was made by a linesman who was very badly placed to see any push.

This also broke the well established principle that officials don't change their minds about penalties based on players' appeals.  If you didn't see it when it happened you can't rely on what you thought you might have seen once a player has put new suggestions in your mind.  The linesman was a credulous fool who started imagining he'd seen what he couldn't have seen based on pressure from cynical players. 

That the linesman hared into the stand as soon as the final whistle blew, skipping the normal end of match courtesies, and the referee apologised to Goodwin tells you all you need to know.  This was as shockingly incompetent a piece of officiating as I've seen in Scottish football, and that's no small claim because standards are often abysmal.

That was some bolt. You'd be forgiven for assuming he must be touching cloth.

Am I the only one thinking we might see some Cormack craziness this week? Low level expected a "mutual consent" statement this evening (to be clear I don't want this)

The Sportsound bit was tedious as f**k, "do you think if Milne was still chairman McInnes would be manager" 😴

The Considine thing was weird but feels more like an agent being a p***k than anything else as neither Goodwin nor Considine seem like the type.

Mutual consent regarding who? Goodwin?

On the Considine exit, I see parallels with the release of our captain Stephen McGinn at the end of Goodwin's first season:

https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/hibs/stephen-mcginn-st-mirren-exit-doesnt-sit-well-with-brother-john-mcginn-2877032

Huge presence in the dressing room and perhaps had the ear of the board (were rumours McGinn was feeding them information about Stubbs' deficiencies ahead of his sacking).

My feeling was that Goodwin felt threatened at having someone on his staff with influence who could potentially undermine his authority. There's a definite alpha male thing going on. Likes having Lee Sharpe as an Assistant because Sharpe knows his place.

Was no surprise a big character like Scott Brown left soon after Goodwin arrived and Considine looks like McGinn mark 2. Difference is McGinn left us quietly, at the height of Covid, whereas Considine's release... Goodwin has made a complete hash of it; if he really wanted the guy to remain at the club then it would have happened regardless of the "leak".
