That’s quite impressive that you have that kind of data on a St Mirren player on loan at Clyde tbf. Do you capture the statistics manually and enter them in to the graphic or have a programme to do it for you? 

WyScout lets you downloads a leagues worth of data as an Excel sheet. I convert that data into the categories and combine multiple leagues/seasons etc., and I've a python code set up so I just type in the players name, the position they play in, and the season I want, and it generates the chart in a few seconds.

Would've loved Gogic to stay but was never particularly hopeful. He did well for us but during our stinking run after Robinson arriced,  there were a few games where I really wanted him to take the game by the scruff of the neck.

Will we bring in a better player than Gogic? Probably not but you never know.

Anthony O'Connor (footballer) - Wikipedia

Apparently we're interested in him.

I seem to remember him doing well at Aberdeen. Although, that was a few years ago.

They’ll often make the smallest clubs in the league favourites for relegation so putting you and Ross County in the bottom two feels about right to me.

I'd pipe down, you are about to have a season of watching Lee Hodson and Callum Waters as your full backs, Blair Alston as your midfield playmaker and Brad feckin Lyons as your only option of the bench to change things. Enjoy.

I liked Gogic, he was big, mobile, good in the air, could play a couple of positions, and he and Erhahon worked well together. He's not a great passer, but didn't really need to be for what we wanted out of him. He's not irreplaceable though, not the way someone like Ronan is. I think mid table Prem is about his level, and Dundee United are obviously able to pay a fair bit more than us, and I guess he probably has a good relationship with Ross. I think he will do well for them.

Looks like we lined up 4-3-3 in both halves tonight

I could see O’Connor coming in to line up alongside Gallagher and attempting to offload one of Fraser, Shaughnessy or Dunne. 

Why would we attempt to offload Shaunghessy? 😅

Couldn't blame Gogic for going to United: back with JR who obviously likes him as well as the draw of European football.

They're also having to play catch-up with their preparations for the season ahead due to the manager situation (only team in the league not to have signed a player yet) so may well have thrown a bit of money at Gogic to get him in.

No way Shaughnessy or Dunne will go. I could see Fraser heading out, but he's too useful in that right-hand of three CHs role. If he's happy being backup then I think we'll keep him.

*if* we were to sign O’Connor and *if* we played with a back 4 then I’d imagine that the current central defenders won’t be happy, there may be interest in them and we might want to free up a wage. 3 back up central defenders would possibly be excessive. 
 

All ifs though. Maybe we’re not interested in O’Connor now we have Gallagher and / or we’ll play 3 in central defence

This lad O’Connor we are possibly in for, I can’t remember him playing 70 games for Aberdeen. Just looking at his wiki page, he’s very experienced and would seem to be a similar type player to Gogic, in terms of covering the midfield and centre back positions.

surprised Grieve didn’t have a few extra weeks off after international duty

 

 

No main or Brophey

I was genuinely confused at seeing Keanu Baccus referred to as the 'Parklea Messi' by some on Twitter. Further reading revealed that Parklea are one of his former clubs.

I'm relieved, then, to find that he definitely has no history linking him to the Parklea playing fields, next to the A8 at Port Glasgow.

I’ve still got bits of the red blaze in my knee from those pitches, playing in goals against Port Glasgow with shorts on many years ago.

Those changing rooms still give me the fear
