  1. It shouldn’t be that you have to pick a home player. As the title says, it’s man of the match. Alan Campbell, hands down. Should have awarded it to him. Its an embarrassment to be awarded MOTM when there was clearly a better player on the pitch
  2. Do us a favor. Dinna watch the game imorn. ☺️
  3. McGinn has been very very good for us, but lets face it, he's a bench player now. Does his best work now for us coming off the bench with 20-30 minutes to go.
  4. What are those rumoured figures? £3M up front with additions that could bring it up closer to £5M. Heafty sell on percentage on top. If that's true, in this market, in the financial position we are in, then that would be decent enough
  5. I think everyone understood the call at the time. McInnes apparently warned Steve Bruce against a last minute bid, yet it was still left till the last minute. Nobody predicted that Covid would happen let alone forsee the impact to clubs. Incidentally, it was 2 years ago that we received a bid from Villa
  6. Yep. Agreed. I doubt many 1st time posters start a thread, they normally would start by responding in an existing thread.
  7. There a lot of people wetting themselves because of this poor result. I have no doubt that McKenna being withdrawn the morning of the game had an impact, but we also had the worst luck / start which played right into Motherwells strategy. Goal no 1, technically was a pen, but was nowhere near being deliberate. I'm not even convinced that Watkins was deliberately making his body bigger, it was just his natural method of balance in that moment. This was quickly followed up by goal no 2, which to be fair was great pressing by Motherwell, but uncharacteristic for Lewis to fluff that straight to the boy Long. So were 2-0 down, having to chase the game and allows Motherwell to sit in, counter us, which they were good at. The third goal was directly contributed to McKenna being absent. He was tasked with picking up the boy Mugabi, which in turn fell upon McCrorie to do. He was out muscled (fouled actually) to give them the gloss on the result. It was as some have put it, a bad day at the office, lets see how we respond in the coming games
  8. It’s the same set up? just the options of who is playing in the formation has changed
  9. Not right back as I see it, RCB is where he’ll play Having to drop McKenna (to be sold) and Hoban (rested) meant we were short at CB
  10. Here Bert shows Scotland in 14th for the 2020 season https://kassiesa.net/uefa/data/method5/crank2020.html I think your looking at the 2021 season, which will not factor in next seasons comp, where we’re currently 13th https://kassiesa.net/uefa/data/method5/crank2021.html seems clear as day to me that he Scottish cup winners (3rd place) will not go into the PO round next season. If there is fog clouding my view, please de-fog my underdtanding
  11. We’d have to be bumped up to 12th spot. Bert has us 13th, but officially we are 14th. https://www.uefa.com/memberassociations/uefarankings/country/#/yr/2020 There is one spot to be be bumped up because there is no Conference winners, so we move from 14th to 13th, not from 13th to 12th
  12. Nah, that’s never been justified and actually debunked in my opinion
  13. In our formation, the main striker spends a lot of the time with their backs to goal, holding up possession and bringing the midfielders into play more. Do you think Anderson suits that role? I think he needs more to play off someone
  14. What stands out for me (if I read it correctly) that were 13th this year but could be 10th for next seasons campaign. That means that the Scottish cup winners (3rd) would go straight into the Play Off round of the Europa League and guaranteed group stage football, either by qualifying or dropping into the Conference League groups
