Falkirk v Clyde


Recommended Posts

Peter Grant, Ross Lyon, Euan Cameron. Take them out that team and the others have done okay. Can't come and play a decent Falkirk side with three passengers though. 

Lyon's attempt to block the cross at the second goal was absolutely pathetic.

Playing well so far and could have scored more. Burrell is a baller and makes such a difference.
We were inviting Clyde into us a bit as the half went on, hopefully that tires them out in the 2nd half. Aside from some slack passing from the defence we've not had too much to worry about

Got to agree with this, maybe include the keeper too.

Falkirk extremely comfortable in this game. Very disheartening from a Clyde point of view.

First goal came from a corner, flicked on at the front and no Clyde player covering the back post/6 yard box, allowing McGinn a tonne of time to run onto the ball and slot it home.

The second was a low cross into the box, McLean swung his leg at it, the ball popped up and hit him on the hand, then Ray Grant panicked and tried to clear the ball with his right foot. He completely scuffed his connection and the ball rolled towards the penalty spot/edge of the box, again with no Clyde players around and McGinn stepped up to power it home.

Falkirk had a few other chances that could have led to goals.

Clyde had one shot of note that was saved. The Falkirk keeper flapped and spilled the resulting corner but Kennedy had a near fresh air swipe when the ball broke to him. Typically we haven’t put the ball anywhere near the keeper in our next 2 corners, despite his shaky moment.

Cunningham lost up front and completely marked out the game, as he always is without a striker in front of him.

Cameron has potential but last week he got bullied and became frustrated and ended up offering little. Unsurprisingly the same thing has happened again today. He isn’t ready to play central attacking mid. Either put him on the wing where he’ll get more space, or get him off, move Cunningham back one and (as I always say) get an actual striker on.

The most depressing thing is that earlier in the season we were dropping points while still playing well, creating chances and generally being entertaining to watch. We’re now back to barely creating one real chance per half and taking too many touches in possession.

If Lennon sorted his tactics and we managed to keep it tight at the back in the second half we could still theoretically play our way back into this, but I can’t see either of those things happening.
