Just now, Mr Positive, sometimes. said:

The plan out of possession even from kick off was to allow GK and even their central defenders (no wonder when you see Connelly in possession) to have the ball stand off and force them to try and play through us or encourage them to go longer and bring into the game the 3 central defenders who would dominate in the air. 

Aye but it was a bit of a mess, in my opinion. The three attackers didn't seem sure what they were doing. Wotherspoon was charging all over the placd, Hendry didn't know whether to sit or press, and MOH was doing nothing.

Second half it seemed to have been made clear and it was a lot more structured. I couldnt see the plan in the first half but could in the second, specifically after the equaliser when confidence returned.

Bet you can't wait for McKenna and Taylor to hoof possession away? 

I wouldn't hate it so much if we didn't make twenty passes between full back, centre halves and centre mid beforehand.

MOH had a massive opportunity to prove himself yesterday and he blew it.  I really hope Davidson went through him. 

Hoping we go 352 against Aberdeen. May and Hendry were working well together towards the end of last season and I felt we struggled to get McCann on the ball yesterday. 

Also Conway looked the business and surprisingly quick when he came on.

For Aberdeen I'd go

                                Parish 

         Kerr              Gordon           McCart 

Rooney                   Craig                  Tanser 

                 McCann          Conway 

         May              new exciting signing 

 

Solid enough with enough attacking intent.

Are we going to be familiar at all with this individual?

It'll  be in the PA on Tuesday. 

Is the PA still a thing?

Is it a striker or a "forward"?

I know it won't be him, but you instantly think of former players, and i instantly go to George Williams simply because its well known he's a free agent.

Bingo

Makes sense to have him registered to play.  How much he plays is another thing.

Might fill a place on the bench if we don't have 9 without the cost of an additional player.

But I do agree with RG's sentiment when he said that he hope it's a joke 😂

Now take a minute or two and think about things before exploding.

I'm going with it being a wind up, tbh.

If we're signing up a player about to turn 38, who hasn't looked comfortable at this level for 3 seasons, then ill have a complete heads gone though.

Giving him a playing deal based on his previous career here, years ago and when he's well beyond that, is the type of pathetic stuck in the past pish relegated sides do when they're panicking.

I dont care if its to "save a wage" or "take up a spot". I dont even care if hes never likely to play. The message it would send out is rank.

RandomGuy of course its no the cheap option of Macca.....

 

 

 

Its the cheaper option of Roddy Grant.

Edit: Kane can give up Macca’s number 9. That’s a good lad.

Anyone who thinks Macca wouldn't have done better than Hendry yesterday is fucking deluded.

I'd quite happily say it, seeing as he completely fucking stank the place out up front for Hearts over the past two seasons, and only looked comfortable once he dropped into the third tier. His legs were done is his last season with us, and only a hat trick on the final day and the passage of time has people forgetting that.

I see zero benefit of signing him as a player. He's not good enough to play top flight football anymore so its pointless even having him as an option.

Was MoTM in the 2 saints v saints matches apparently.

I'd imagine it's to have him there incase of emergency and allow the young forwards to get out on loan again at a higher level.

That sounds like logical thinking.  Get it in the sea.
 

We only want emotional head explosions here.

Is this the basis for us signing players now? As it seems like the same reason Conway got a contract.

MacLean is the past, let's leave him there.
