What formation are we even playing?
That team selection is a piss take. If you want to look at other players then play them in natural positions

4411.

 

From the players missing who could we even play? We've got attackers on the bench but we're struggling for defenders and center mids. 

Gives Crawford a chance to look at a couple of young players in a competitive setting, if you're not going to play them in a meaningless game when you can you see them?

Interesting, who's at right back?

 

Danny Devine. 

 

Two of his poor mistakes have led to Inverness having chances. 

I appreciate that some people reckon he's good enough as back up but he needs jettisoned double quick.

He’s dross. For him to have gotten a 2 year deal is one of the worst decisions I’ve ever seen.
Stuck with him another year It’s actually laughable and infact, he isn’t even one of the worst players we have makes it even worse.

Well done to the team today.

Indeed, I thought it was a controlled win and Austin thoroughly deserved his goal as well as his motm award

Hilarious goal to concede. 

Gill rolls it out to Morrison who has a horrendous backpass that amount to chipping it at Gills face, Austin then has the fairly simple task of tapping it in. 

Oh bore off, if Crawford was to win this one what it change your mind? Its the absolute epitome of a  worthless end of season fixture where we're giving some fringe players a chance, who have royally fucked up. 

Maybe Morrison forgot what he was doing up there as least he didn't score not sure I could take the inverness fan scoring an own goal

At least that's the season over. Interesting team selection to the say the least, particularly with Danny Devine at right back, and not all that much happened overall.

Poor goal to concede and a shame it involved Gill and Morrison. I thought Higgy tried his best to make things happen but, other than that, meh.

Glad that we won't have to see another 1-0 defeat until July at least tbh.

Holy shit, Devine at right back? I can’t even imagine that tbh. I assume it was an old fashioned right back and he wasn’t overlapping the wingers?

If Crawford hadn’t been a good player for us then not a single person would want him kept on next season.

Keeper should’ve just caught it.
wtf

Probably would’ve been the best choice, indirect free kick being the far lesser threat. Horrible pass to him tho.

It's probably instinctual to him to never handle a backpass. Keepers presumably have that drilled in to them regularly.

It most likely took him totally off guard as well, meaning he just went with his instincts not to handle it.

He had a good game in general though, and made a cracking save in the second half.

Surely it would be a red? Denial of a clear goalscoring opportunity without any legal attempt at actually playing the ball.

Aye. It's easy to say in hindsight to just catch it, but it goes against his natural instinct, can't attach much blame but probably a slight learning point if he faces such a scenario again.

Nope
