The long balls in this game were giving me the fear. Can someone who was at the game give some insight into why Devlin hoofed it to their back four all the time?

1/ because he was told to

2/ because no-one in the midfield appeared to want it

3/ because the midfield instead appeared happy to turn and face the opposition turning it into a bizarre high stakes game of attack versus 9 man defence

4/ because the one man up front had been told he did want it despite the fact he very clearly didn’t!

It may or may not have been a pen but it was a brain fart moment from Logan to go in half hearedly.

Go in aggresively and he'd most likely win ball and concede a corner.

Leave the player to win the ball and he'd kick it out for either a goal kick or a throw.

 

It was definitely a pen.

Boyd isn’t even that fat. He’s one of the best natural finishers we’ve had in Scotland over the years, it’s his fault he wasted his career the way he has. It’s a nonsense to say that Scottish football is pretty poor because boyd plays in the top tier.

.

Fat dick with shit hair and so is Boyd LOL

Surely we should be thinking of what is best for the team rather than worrying about players sulking?

So you'd play Wilson even if he wasn't the best option?

Ok, he may well be best option for the game, but there's probably as many who would rather see someone else up front.

McInnes has to man-manage amongst other things, there will be players who have to be treated differently to others to get the best out of them. I don’t think Wilson deserved to be dropped and I don’t think it would have done him any good to drop him for no good reason.

Now he can say to Wilson he had his chance against killie and Anderson deserves a start instead after his goal, it would be difficult for Wilson to argue otherwise.

Or 5/ their team did well to cut off options to pass out of defence.

Well they should come a bit deeper to look for the ball instead of hanging about the halfway line.


Lack of trust between the players I think. Even when the midfield do come for the ball the defence hesitate and go for the easier option to another defender or back to Lewis. Good teams trust each other and pass

Fair enough.
I would like to see what he can do with a decent run of games.

But equally, I also think Anderson deserves a start or two. He's earned it.

 

Don't suppose we can have both.
Or can we...  :sherlock:  

Be nice to see them get chance together perhaps v the shite at home...

Ahh, so you're an advocate of the winner-stays-on rule being applied by McInnes when he's picking the team.

9 games or something in December so plenty of opportunities to start Anderson.

Tin hat on but I think if we go with two up top then one of them has to be Cosgrove.


How?

May and Anderson looked alright together and so have Wilson and May.

Cosgrove seems more suited for the industrious football we are playing of late.

To knock down the long balls from the back to the other striker?  Remember when Rooney used to get put out on the wing to knock down goal kicks to whoever moved up front?

 

File under "the definition of madness is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results".  Like people on here saying "Shinnie to left back" or "Mcginn off the striker" without any appreciation of being locked in an echo chamber.

 

As for May, he just runs aboot and wastes breaks.  I like that he chases people down, but that's all he's good for these days.

A polite way of saying the ball is in the air most of the match.

Where did I say that? I just said it would be easier to justify swapping him for Anderson given the events of the killie game, rather than bombing Wilson out the team for no reason before the game started.

Great post we are missing McLean and it also proves we are not attack minded till the very end of games

Only thing I disagree with is the snake he is not missed in my opinion

 

As much as it pains me to admit it because I cant stand the cunt now, we are for sure missing Jack, Shinnie nor Ball have the touch and control of Jack and cant do the simple holding midfield role, Shinnies poor touch means he is constantly battling for the ball and one of the reasons he picks up so many bookings
