Yassss Pearo is back.

 

3-5-2 today.

 

Ripley

Kennedy McManus Chalmers

Ainsworth Grimshaw Lasley Pearo Johnson

Moult & McDonald

I'd be very surprised if we are playing 352 with ainsworth and Johnson as wing backs

I suspect that it's 442 with Grisham at right back..

 

Who's on the bench..?

 

I suspect that also. Can't go three at the back with Ainsworth and Johnson. Not exactly known for slotting in at the back when under pressure. You can do that when your backs are people like Rab McKinnon.

Encouraged with that starting 11 , but think 3-5-2 formation is a bit ambitious .

Would imagine Grimshaw will sit just in front of McManus in a holding role and rarely stray beyond halfway .

2 goals and a clean sheet would be nice .

I'm really hoping it is a 3-5-2. Grimshaw will be told to play side to side with lasley breaking up play and Pearson going forward. Good line up. Than fuck someone has saw fit to drop Law and Taylor. Well done Craigan.

I hope future teams will not be selected by what the fans want, this looks like ticking a lot of the fan's boxes in terms of personnel.

Here's hoping he's closer to Hately than Law in terms of converted mids playing full back *if* that's the case...

He is a converted right back to centre mid according to his first interview when he signed

I mind when Gordon Young and then Kenny Black took temporary charge I was disappointed they just went with the status quo, absolutely delighted to see Craigan having no fear to ring the changes.

 

Just checked, we're 9/5 in some places...

Is grimshaw at right back?

 

According to BBC stats, we've been heavily under the kosh since the goal. What's it really been like?

Think we have been much better so far, but are defending a bit too deep when Thistle have the ball. Partick much better than I thought they would be, far from the worst team we've played this season. Players look up for it but need improve our out ball and final touch.

What a difference Pearson makes. Energy and physicality in the middle of the park.

 

Not been great other than that, Skippy very very slack and Lasley really needs to screw the nut. Stupid tackles and running out of position. Distribution from the back has been poor.

 

Oh and the Thistle keeper hasn't had a save to make.

Yes, standard 4 4 2. Thistle have had more chances but I think we've looked more dangerous.
