Scottish Premiership Game 7: Aberdeen (H) Sunday 24/09/17 (12.15)

Recommended Posts

Kind of expecting to lose today as their motivation may be slightly stronger than ours (not questioning our guys' attitude, just a fact that revenge is a strong motivator) but hoping that we can sneak something.

 

Bowman and Rose looked like the men running on empty on Thursday so might be those two who are rested. Frear at left wing back and Cadden in to the middle would be my preferred option for replacing Rose. Not sure about who I'd bring in for Bowman...

Sid on the bench, would probably come on for Bowman if he runs out of gas. Frear, Tanner and Grimshaw good options to change it up if needed. Weird this strength in depth thing...

Rose out injured/rested. Bigi in his place.

Dunne back in for Hammell.

Will be interesting to see how badly Rose is missed or if Bigi can up his tempo for a full 90 min.

Bit unfair on Hammell but the manager must go with his first choice team.

Reckon its more being 35 and a hard shift a few days ago and yes Rose missing will be interesting hopefully Biggi will step up although different types of players

As you might expect given the circumstances it's been a bit sleepy so far.

 

Finished the half the stronger team so if we can built on that we should have the upper hand but right now it looks like a goal is probably going to be enough to win the match.

A more cautious approach by both teams. We're working down the left with tait and moult more involved in link up play than the main target to get the ball to. 50/50 imo with neither team creating a clear cut chance. Kiprie making an odd mistake here n there, cadds somewhat subdued and the rest doing ok but not a lot more. Hartley getting more forward than usual and so far he's shading it for me. As for Aberdeen it's punt it to may alone up front stuff. Personally I'd take a draw but we can play better but sometimes it's just grinding it out which today seems to be.

Apparently Tait is to be booked at the start of the second for something that happened at half time? Not sure what happened though.

Apparently he and Christie were having a go at each other. Probably a bit of overspill from Christies horrendous tackle the other night.

McHugh for me has been very poor today. One of the poorest passers of the ball I have ever seen. I like him a lot but he is a shadow of who he was last season

Seriously disappointed in McHugh. Caught on the ball a lot today.

He's been poor a lot this season.

 

Case to made him being dropped, but can you drop the captain?

I wonder if it's being captain that has affected McHugh's form. Maybe trying a bit too hard, or focusing on different things.

We lost this game the minute we brought on Fisher cause we went immediatwly down to 10 men, fuckin hopeless

 

Not pretty stuff but we should take it as a compliment that a team like Aberdeen is coming to FP intent on shutting us down and fighting their way to points

Bigi has been very poor as well. forgot he was on the park. Aberdeen are now winning all the tackles and 2nd balls. I love Louis Moult like a brother but I wish he would stop looking for the fouls more than taking the ball in and shielding it, bring others into the game than constantly being on his arse. Campbell has been outstanding again

Disappointing outcome but as others have said, it was always going to be difficult replicating the same performance as Thursday night.

 

Pity we couldn't have got a point though.

Got what we deserved from that one, the hunger we had on Thursday was gone. Rose gets a hard time on here but I Think we missed him today, does a lot of the thankless work that goes un noticed. When we made the double sub I didn't feel like it was going to make us any better and it didn't, don't rate either of the 2 that came on.

I think Frear was the right call, but we didn't use him. Just continued to lump it high.

Poor game as anticipated on the back of Thursday's exploits. We never really looked like scoring and one wee bit of magic from Christie proved the difference.

 

Campbell the standout performer today. He had to get through a helluva lot of work given how ineffective McHugh and Bigirimana were.

Not much fight in the team today not much urgency either, Fisher is hopeless, doesn't jump, can't run, just poor player altogether and Frear was pretty ineffective too.
