Close call between Tait and Tanner for me both equally as good today but Tait has been outstanding this season and went a bit unnoticed this season so a credit to him for todays performance.

Tanner, hands down. Was involved in everything good today and at times seemed to ghost past defenders at will. Needs more end product, but given he hasnt played a massive amount I expect plenty more to come from him.

 

Carson was in excellent form, as was Tait yet again covering multiple opponents and charging up and down the wing. I agree that the much maligned Dunne had a good game today. Still suspect with the ball at times, but he made a lot of crucial tackles and won almost everything in the air. If only there were some way to combine his athleticism and pace with Hammells footballing ability!

I thought that Tanner was our best, but good performance from Tait, Carson and Hartley. Also thought that Bigi worked very hard for the team.

Who voted for Dunne??.... couldn't pass water

I havent yet but i will be. Thought he was excellent. Correct that he is not the best passer of a ball but defensively was terrific today (and last week). Folks around me commented on similar vein as did manager. Tanner, Tait, Hartley, Carson did well also

Me.

 

I thought he had an excellent game defensively despite having little or no cover in front of him. Yes, his passing wasn't great but overall my MOTM.

Carsons save at the end means he just edges MOTM for me, but up until that point Charlie Dunne was our best player and the best hes played in a Well jersey.

Tait for me but mentions to Tanner, Dunne, and Carson for his save at the end.

 

Thought Bigi looked up for it today too.

Tanner has started eight league games and scored four goals. Don't know how many assists he has but it's certainly a few. The end product is there. I think he will be a crucial player for us in the second half of the season, the real question being where we play him to get the best out of him and to best suit the team. He'd be one of seven players we have that should be definite starters when fit. The other four places are up for grabs...

Spot on and Id say at least 2/3 midfield spots and 1/2 strikers depending what we bring in, in January.

Having read "The Island of Doctor Moreau", it probably wouldn't end well.

Indeed. Obviously depending on who we bring in during January but at the minute I'd say the nailed on starters when fit are Carson, Tait, Kipré, Hartley, Dunne, Cadden and Tanner. Leaves us with at least five midfielders fighting for a couple of places. And a massive question mark over who plays up front...

Very true. One can't attack the other can't defend.

Thought McHugh improved on his recent form but still has a long way to go. Could have went for anyone of Hartley, Tait, Tanner or Carson.

 

Tanner gets it as he looks like the only player who can make things happen for us at the moment

Went for the much maligned Dunne. I thought he was excellent today. He won a lot of headers and his pace got us out of a couple of difficult situations and his passing was much better.

Special mention to Tait who is having a great season. His fitness level lets him bust a gut to get forward and then back. He is one of best two footed players I have seen at Fir Park in a long time and this means he can play on either side and defenders do not know which foot he is going to cross with.

Hartley and Carson being back means we are so much more organised in defence.

Tanner was the only one who looked like he could create something. Doubt if we would have scored without the penalty.

I had mentioned a bit about Tanner on P&B. Certainly his best performance yesterday, and for me, he's definitely a no.10. Not a winger or a midfielder.

 

The issue with having a no.10 in the side is you need a striker who is good enough go play up on his own. For all I'm a fan of Bowman, I don't believe he's the man for that. His best performances for us have come with him as part of a front two.

 

A striker should he our no.1 priority in January.

Interesting. My perception was very much of him not having played much but that's more appearances than I thought. Don't get me wrong though, I've been very impressed any time I've seen him. That's more goals and assists than I thought but I think he's capable of even more from what I've seen of him.

I know what you mean about feeling as if he hasn't started that many games. I think it's because he has gone weeks without starting then will start one or two then drop out.

 

Like you, any time I've seen him I've been impressed. Hibs away when he came on he made a real difference. Even in the League Cup final, in the time between him coming on and Kipré getting sent off, he was finding pockets of space.

 

I think we've still to find the best way to use him but as the squad stands, he's our most important attacking player...

Easily Tanner for me, skinned some of there players several times. Deserved his goal. Decent freekick as well. I agree he our best attavking asset now.

 

Tait as always mr reliable along with hartley. Carson also in with a shout.
