Folk bleating about us being unable to break down 10 men. They parked the bus for the duration of the game and just tried hitting us on the break, our only in was to pump needless balls into the box to Cosgrove, who wasn't winning anything on the night, and May, whos never going to win any headers. If you look at most games where it's 11v10, it usually ends up a lot tougher for the 11 because the 10 just shut up shop. We were pretty shite going forward, admitedly, but there was very little space in behind for any kind of ball other than over the top.
Forrester was really disappointing. He looked out of his depth and made so many silly little mistakes. I'm hoping it was just nerves, but i'm not so sure.
Wouldn't agree with that exactly and certainly not with "our only in was pumping balls to Cosgrove"
Rangers were playing very narrow.
We should have been getting it wide and asking our wingers to take on their full backs.
With the amount of possession we had they'd likely have been giving away repeated fouls of we kept taking them on down the flanks every time.
And if McGinn or GMS got by their man then get to the by line and whip it back from there.
Instead for much if he match we mixed long balls and lots of early crosses with attempts to go through the middle. All pointless and completely the wrong thing to do.
