Delayed review but I have been enjoying the holiday period!
The first ten minutes was gruesome to watch. The wet only helped Motherwell as our players seemingly hadn't warmed up yet. The goal was VERY sloppy, McMann really should do better.
Gary Woods again with some GREAT shot stopping and important punching at crosses.
Dougie Imrie *Remember that guy? The one people were posting about how shit he was? * again showed his experience and finished the penalty brilliantly.
I thought Donati's inclusion was great, as well as some important interceptions, the defenders look visibly calmer as they can see Donati eager to pick up a ball with a short pass. Docherty worked his socks off, playing wider might be an option as he does have some pace to burn when dribbling at defenders.
The abuse Bingham gets, truly baffling. He was being man marked by someone who could be a rugby player given different boots, the people near me screaming at him for every sloppy pass he receives or impossible to retrieve ball. That goal is very important to him, it also makes him our joint league scorer
brilliant finish and composure.
Templeton - I dunno what has happened here, the past few games he seems to have his usual spells of magic but is losing the ball in possession A LOT and then not tracking it back.
The opening 10 minutes and a 20 minute period in the second half aside, we played very well at times. If Motherwell had Moult, we could've had a pounding with the chances they had. Our Wingback formation really doesn't work IMO. With the current crop of players we have, we could dominate midfield play more if we just switch to the bloody standard back 4.
Anyways, that was the best result we could have hoped for. Now let's hope we don't lose anymore talent in January!
