Ayr23 Posted November 19, 2022 Share Posted November 19, 2022 1 hour ago, WATTOO said: I don't agree that Ashford is anywhere near as bad as people are making out as we've had some very good team performances when Ashford has played and his work rate can't be questioned, however there's no doubt that he's suffering from a severe lack of confidence just now and some of his misses this season (and end of last) beggar belief. That said, there is no doubt though that we're at our most dangerous when when we go with Mullan right, Chalmers left (with both interchanging) and Dipo through the middle with either McKenzie or Young just behind. That gives us multiple goal threats and excellent deliveries from both sides of the park, Yes, it perhaps leaves our Midfield 2 a little light but you can't have everything and the threat that we have up top and from the flanks outweighs any sort of downside I'd say. We can only hope that Kirk's injury is not as bad as it looked and that Frankie will be back sooner rather than later, however if the worst comes to the worst I'm sure we'll manage to bring one or two in on loan, especially given our lofty position and good publicity that we've been getting. Anyway, a good point up at Inverness, our recent unbeaten run intact, still clear at the top and a wee break from league duty until early December, so really it's all pretty good....... Just back from the game, and I thought Ashford offered zero. I really want him to do well, but it’s just not happening. When McKenzie and Young came on the game changed completely. The first half was criminal, and at HT I’d have bitten your hand off for a draw. However I’m gutted to only get a point. Over the piece a draw is probably fair, but when you’re 10 minutes from victory it’s gutting. We sat back and the inevitable happened. I was convinced that Chalmer’s chance at the death was curling in. The only time I didn’t go to Inverness was when we won, and for a time towards the end I thought I might see that first victory up there. I’m delighted that Chalmer’s injury wasn’t a head injury as first thought, because he was brilliant in the second half, not so much the first half though. I’m glad we’re getting a break from the league next weekend, and hopefully we can get a comfortable win over Pollok and reset for Raith, who got pumped by QP who we’ve beaten twice this season. Ultimately the January window will decide who wins this league, and If think we’ll have the cash to spend, and the backroom staff to sign the right players. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
