  1. When I think Burnley Ryan Christie is not the type of player who springs immediately to mind.
  2. That’s the age old arguement though - that discernible “leadership” quality. Best examples at Aberdeen, Miller, Aitken and Hegarty. Unquestionably leaders on the park (as an aside I’d have given an arm to watch Miller being reffed by thon plum the other night. 10 minutes in Willie would have had him telt!). But off the park, just not able to get the same reaction. I always had a theory that the great players didn’t understand why young players needed things explained to them. Often more than once.
  3. Russell and Mcnaughton. Struggling to name another defender who’s come close (bar Consi) since Wright (Hawk) and Robertson (Ptting)
  4. Thought he did fine. Couldn’t do much about the goal, just naive (new) defence all round and very well taken. Maybe not MoTM I’d give that to their no10 who was trying to get things going up front. Good chance of a sell on. Good chance of a managerial vacancy. Needs to be on the right side of it.
  5. Apologies for going all wogan-esq but as one of life’s inevitable tangents... I had guessed the Dutch bit, I was just shite at typing II. But I also knew about the Dumfries pronunciation due to a conversation at the Troon open 2000 ish. On seeing an American golfer in the bunker he remarked “there’s Tway in the bunker” (there were two Americans both in the bunker) to which I replied “no, that’s Parnevik” oh how we laughed, quietly obvs. true story! Thanks for indulging.
  6. How much did you pay Cavey? And why are you buying that on a year that its nae windy?
  7. Agree. We then invite pressure on the very players we're trying to rest. Caveat: Not sure what my forward line would be between Wright, Hedges, Mclennan, Edmondson and Watkins to get us those goals right enough.
  8. So why do the Dutch say Willem 11 "Willem tway" the same way they do in Dumfries?
  9. Ok, so I agree with you. Now tell Derek to get McRorie the fuck out of that position.
  10. Get McRorie the fuck out of that position this instant! If Hobans not fit Id be going back 4 again.
  11. Summary First time on red tv with pish internet. It was pish. The blue and black blobs beat the red blobs by one I think. Back 5 looked conservative. I see what he was trying to do (if a little blurred) but of course then promptly didn't do it and it cost us. If Logan was to be the right anchor surely he should have started on Sunday? Scarily seem to be back to not really knowing what the best 11 is albeit Kennedy in particular and Mckenna have skewered it somewhat making Mckennas timing as shite as a Kirk Broadfoot tackle. Still say we could have sold him just as well this morning or even better after the Linz game. We're massively more secure with Ferguson and McRorie in front that much is obvious. Mcgeough isnt the player to do the harrying role in front of that though. What we discovered last night was teams like that, if they're 1-0 up we can be as secure as we like, they're not going to attack any time soon. And so it seemed like we watched them pass it back and fore for 80 minutes before wondering if attacking might just yield us a goal. We didn't need Hernandez to translate "Why de fuck do gringoes not do attack?" And dont start me on the new goal keeper in a rusty defence so we decide not to bother slinging in any crosses. Im seeing a lot of de ja vu comments. This was totally different so dont grant McInnes that out. Its us that's ten games in versus a team that was fresh out of the wrapper. That's a complete turnaround on his usual excuse. They were still the better side, no embarrassment going out to them. Just once more we look at what might have been. And Uefa can ram their cup.
  12. He was 4 minutes off the dunt last night TIAR or not.
  13. Remember the number of times we’ve used the excuse, aye but we’ve had no games and they’re well into their season...
  14. So what we saying tonight then. Back 4 with Logan or Hernandez, Ashton sitting it out. McGinn or more likely Mcgeouch sitting between Hedges and Wright. Or even the Leeds boy if he’s fit. or a back 5 with galoot in the middle and Mcrorie taken out of midfield to fuck about as a wing back? This post is brought to you in the hope that someone uses it against me at 10.00 Pm once big Ash has destroyed more dago hopes than Covid.
