Wish I had stayed at home.
I will say this, with the 4-1-4-1 formation we managed to play some good football. Managing to interlink passes in midfield was a joy to watch.
That lasted for around 20 minutes of the game..
Miller going down with what looked like a hamstring injury is worrying, he was causing some trouble for Aberdeen by running at defenders, the same problem occurs game in game out though, he looks up for some support and nobody is there so has to continue running into danger.
HOW IS TAIWO GETTING A START IN THIS TEAM? Absolutely rotten, he offers nothing to the team. Scott Martin SHOULD be in that midfield, especially with Aberdeen being so physical.
Boyd, as I've stated previously, outwith a couple of great goals per season, what exactly has he to offer? With Miller off it should've been Bingham on, keep up the pressure, however Martin thinks 10 stone, 5 foot 5 Boyd is going to do the business. Boyd losing the ball bringing unnecessary pressure onto himself in midfield, leads perfectly to the second goal. TERRIBLE SUB.
Speaking of terrible subs, Keatings for Davies? WTF. Again, Aberdeens centre backs are like mountains and we bring on another very light midfielder, pushing Tony into CF where he was not comfortable looking at all. Davies may lack fitness, however he was still doing the business when called upon.
I said earlier in the week that I thought Mcmann would do far better in a left midfield position and he proved that last night, he has pace *Beating the very fast shay logan at stages* and is much better going forward than back. Dougie as always made little contribution, his dropping from the squad would give Mcmann the chance to make that move into LM and provide some much needed crosses.
Apart from the fans, the person I feel saddest for is Killa, you could genuinely see how frustrated he feels. When 2 down i believe, he runs the length of the pitch on a solo run *Something a captain would do, ahem* and delivers a ball to the near post...however, only one player had the fight to come with the run and the ball is easily picked up.
The final straw for me last night was the final sub, still no sign of Bingham, sure he's been pretty useless, he does show flashes of a goalscorer though, should we not go down without a fight? Is Scott Martin *As good as he is* going to make a pacey run into the box or such? No...fuck sake canning.
I will stick to watching highlights on TV I think, parting ways with hard earned money to essentially a company that doesn't follow the wishes of the CONSUMERS, means I'm the idiot for doing so.
