GMS needs a run of 10-12 games and an arm around the shoulder. Created more for us on Saturday being on the pitch for 1 minute than anyone else for the previous 42. If I was DMC I'd be trying to get GMS in a free role linking up with a better striker than we've got.
Agreed. He's a decent player, and you never know if he's going to be shit hot or just shit, but the opposition can't just ignore him and hope it will be the latter.
I've said it before, but in previous seasons teams simply had to set up to defend against Hayes and McGinn out wide because if they didn't the two of them would just run riot and create chance after chance for Rooney who would put a decent amount of them in the back of the net. We haven't had that this season, and teams haven't had that same fear against us that they had when those two were starting for us, and I think a lot of it is down to our lack of pace on the wings (and throughout the whole team really).
It's come about 6 months too late, but at least McInnes seems to have finally realised the squad isn't what it should be, so i'm hopeful of at least targeting some better quality players over summer.
It will be a big kick in the nuts trying to attract better players if we don't finish in the European spots though.
