Yes, completely dull/boring/uninteresting. You are absolutely beige. There is nothing remarkable or interesting about you whatsoever, which is why you constantly crave attention on an Internet football forum.

Jesus. 

 

Self awareness in short supply here.

Watch it back. He blocked it with his feet and it unluckily hit him. 
 

He done alright today aside from the one dodgy pass. Don’t get the desperation to slate him.

No idea how folk have came to the conclusion it's a pen. His arm is in a natural position and he makes a goal saving challenge with his feet before it rides up and strikes his arm. He was decent yesterday, gave the ball away a few times but looked much tidier.

New rules.

 

That's a stone wall penalty. Got out of jail there. Arms were not in natural position. Natural if you're falling over aye but his arms making his body outline bigger. Penalty.

But if you're sliding in, as he was, where are your hands meant to go? For me, because it his foot first then up on to his arm, it's not a pen. If it had just hit his arm whilst goal bound then it's a stonewaller. The rules have relaxed somewhat re handball in the box, when at the start of the season pens were being handed out for fuck all.

Be interesting to see what Del will say about big Sam in next few days, certainly got the service and had chances today but didn’t deliver. Hopefully he gets his arm around but also tells him to wake up and get sharper 

Hopefully it goes a little something like this " Off you fuck. you lanky piece of shit"

Put his arm around him? fuck that the boy is a prima donna thinks hes above the dons now get him to fuck, and soon.

Might have been relaxed but we'd be rightly screaming for that at the other end. Ball hits his hand when his arms are away from his body. Hoban got fucked for one of those earlier this season.

 

Not up for arguing. Pen for me. Glad it wasn't given.

Ojo did enough to start the next game. 

If anyone wants him dropped then its virtanen who should get the shout ahead of campbell.

Fingers crossed mcgeouch is ready soon as he makes a big difference

He's going to be fit in next two weeks.

He's back in training now so if nothing goes wrong he'll likely appear on the bench in one of the next two games.

Considering there is 9 subs there is more scope for the likes of McGinn to be on the bench injured and Leigh is there after 2 days training

We are going to have a lot of options that's for sure.

McGeouch is a big change as he is first team quality centre mid meaning McCrorie can play defence or wingback and Ferguson can play closer to the striker. Gives the tinkerman a few more options

Aye Hoban got done for it when the rules were more strict. I think the ref applied common sense to the Ojo incident. 

Not looking to argue, I just don't think it was a pen, on the basis it struck his foot first, and his arms were raised as he was flying in to make the block, which he couldn't have done with his arms by his side.

I disagree on the ref thinking anything. i dont think he spotted it

He was absolutely brutal, to be fair. 

 

I'd have sent off Gallagher inside five mins. Big call for a young ref to send off Scotland's best defender in the first few mins. The tackle was similar to Main's on Barisic and the pundits were unanimous that was a sending off

Harsh folk criticising Ojo for the penalty that wasn't. 

Should be praised for the block. That's the important bit here. Any penalty would have been a result of bad luck rather than making the wrong decision.

As I said at the time that was a red card

Wouldn't want McCrorie playing in defence or at wing back. Far more influential in the middle of the park. Hopefully he comes back after his injury and plays like he did when he first joined, he's been bit quieter of late.

I wouldn't want it either but .... tinkerman. If McGeouch comes in and keeps his place he wont not start mccrorie or ferguson.

Decision might be made easy if Wright joins them. As you say, Ferguson moves further up the park.

A return to 4-2-3-1? 

Played with a back 4 for large parts of yesterday's game

With Ferguson behind the striker? He would certainly help with pressing the opposition defence

Hedges and Wright with a good attacking understanding. Kennedy decent too yesterday and nice to see him switching wings during the game for a change.

What a difference if you actually play attacking/creative players further up the park.

4-2-3-1 please from now on and we'll blow away most of the dross in the league.

It wasn’t 4-2-3-1 yesterday though.

It was 3-4-2-1

We did for a fair chunk of the game but regardless my point was we should play 4-2-3-1 from now on.

Going forward with McGeouch fit I think a 4-3-3 is a decent option. 
 

McCrorie, Ferguson and McGeouch in a midfield 3 could be excellent, a blend of different players with different talents. Kennedy and hedges either flank tucking inside and linking, with full backs bombing on. 
 

Who knows.

In the games against sevco, they were able to exploit the space between the midfield and defence a lot. Someone sitting would have helped nullify that to an extent.

On the plus side, Kennedy who has been a total fucking waste of space so far, appears to have finally realised that his job is to create and score goals.

I'd still think it's highly unlikely that he'll turn into the player McInnes thinks is (he's 26 - he should have done it by now) but I guess there is a glimmer of hope.
