I don’t know the identity of the player we are apparently signing tomorrow but it links into us dropping our interest in McGrath

You should ask @McG as he is the one with the inside track on Aberdeen transfers these days.

🤣

Has he made a big a tit of himself as Scott Burns?

Dave Cormack has said McGrath wanted to come to Aberdeen, but WE rejected the deal.

Thats a few times Scott Burns credibility has been shot to shit. 

And @McG is clearly clueless 🤡

Tbf @McG said a while ago that Ronan won't be coming. 

Was quite vague but came across that Ronan didn't think much of Jim.

Sevco game next month will presumably now be a Sunday, unless they turn this round against the Royal Unionists.

There was an identical header to Welsh’s to make it 3-0 at the end, but there was Tavernier on the far post with an easy clearance.
Which does beg the question why we omitted to position someone there on Sunday.

Back in the day having a man on both posts was a given.

Seems a no brainier to me.

Explained by a dandy !

Basically whoever was designated to run back and cover that area thought we were winning the initial header then.

It’s a bit of a farce as the player is guessing then.

Put men on the posts & remove doubt.

There's an article in the athletic that covers this, which I have linked. https://theathletic.com/2861228/2021/10/05/why-players-are-no-longer-on-the-posts-when-defending-corners/

 

If you're too lazy to click the link, the important bit states that if you don't have players on the posts, there is a 2.1% chance of conceding a goal, but if you do put players on the post, then there's a 2.7% chance of conceding a goal. This makes sense because the defenders on the post are passive, and only become part of the defence if the opponent get a shot at goal, whereas if they are involved in the defending of the corner, then the opponents are much less likely to have a shot at goal, and in turn score.

 

They took this stat from here: https://spielverlagerung.com/2019/12/06/tactical-theory-set-pieces/ which in turn took it from the sloan sports conference in 2018, which I can't find anywhere (I didn't look for very long), so I'm not entirely sure how much data they have sifted through to get to that conclusion.
