Think Ferguson has the potential to be a very Tattie Cooper-esque presence in the middle of the park.
Strong, combative, and very good on the ball. I really like the look of the guy.
@Oregon Red We must have watched different games, because the May I was watching was constantly dropping to get the ball, screaming for the pass, and making sure he was in position to receive the ball. In the couple of times he was supplied with opportunities he did extremely well to control an overhit pass on his chest, though his actual shot from that chance was pish... but that was practically his first touch since coming on, so understandable... the second effort he powered between two defenders who were right on top of him, brought the ball under control, and still managed to force the save.
The guy was desperate to get involved, and I don't think any more could have been expected of his effort.
What puzzled the shit out of me was that he replaced GMS when we had Cosgrove on the bench.
May is a finesse player, a guy who holds onto the ball and attempts to get past his man... we had a team full of guys doing that against a bunch of talentless hammer throwers who'd been pushing and tripping our players for the majority of the match. Cosgrove, on the other hand, is a battering ram who thrives on the physical side of the game. I think he'd have been the far better substitution to deal with those feckless cunts. This was epitomised in 83 minutes where May gathers and is immediately smashed in the back and flies about ten feet back up the pitch.
Didn't really matter at that point, but seemed an odd substitution given the options. .
