2021/2022 Rebuild

Recommended Posts

I have a few friends who play in the championship.  Said that Jeff Nouble was the hardest player they have ever come up against.

Can't get a game for Livi so perfect for us.

Of course we had the bargaining strength. Dundee United need him now, not at the end of the season. We could have quite easily kept him on our books until the summer, so the strength was on our side.

Behave. To think the club held the aces is folly. The theory you think it’s true because you believe it to be doesn’t align with how it works. There would be an optimum fee, that’s been realised. Club seldom get these decisions wrong.

Left back required. McGinley is tuned to the moon. Carrol must start in place of him surely on Saturday . Need a solid no nonsense left back that can concentrate for the whole game

He doesn't really say anything controversial there at all. We might not agree with the motivation for going to Dundee United, but can't fault what he says there. He praises his new employers, is happy with his decision and doesn't bad mouth Motherwell.  All fair enough, time to move on.

Carroll isn't the answer either IMO but agree I would start him on Saturday.  Mcginley has improved slightly but always has a howler within him every game.  Needs taken out of team for his own sake

Im starting to get a bit annoyed with all the McGinley bashing.

Im not saying the guy doesnt make mistakes. That would be patently untrue. But he does a lot of good stuff that seems to get overlooked, while other players seem to get a free ride.

Bevis and Sol both made worse mistakes than McGinley on Tuesday night imho, but nobody is demanding they are taken out of the team.

Most (not all) have also ignored the great interception he made just before Ross County scored the first goal. Covering for team mates who made mistakes.

The guy isnt perfect but he is a better defender than Carroll, who may be great going forward, but gets caught out of position all the time, hence why he isnt starting.

Until we sign someone better, which is unlikely on our budget, he is the best we have in that position.

Not McGinley bashing but I’d prefer Carroll in the team. I just think he adds more to the team. GA prefers McGinley and so that’s who plays. Not sure what the split is but obviously some fans prefer Carroll and others McGinley. Carroll will get his chance to claim that starting position once McGinley gets suspended so we shall see how he gets on when that time comes.

I don't rate mcginley or Carroll but certainly can't be accused of bashing them.  Anyone that reads my posts (apart from the jokes)  will hopefully acknowledge I give an honest assessment rather than publicly slating a player

They are what we have to work with at the moment. I think both are decent for our league and maybe midfield or goal scorer higher priority? I think both are prone to giving us issues i defense but, for me, Carroll will at least give you more in attack. With KVV in the middle and perhaps Shields on there as well I think Carroll would be a good choice and best option to be whipping balls into the danger zone for those 2.

Seen reports that Zak Rudden has signed a pre-contract with Dundee.

Suggests we weren’t seriously interested…

He’ll not be changing leagues at any rate.

Not overly worried about that. Dundee have cash to burn as we know and have always been known as a "If its new and shiny we'll buy 3 " kind of club. They'll be desperate to get rid of Cummings and Griffiths.

Yeah Cummings has got a move to Australia lined up with Central Coast Mariners.

Young Tierney caught the eye when he came on. Does not lack confidence and always looking for the ball. Although he looks about 12 year old and with the same build

I think we’ve won a watch, he looks a real prospect.

Are you at the 'Fishing' just returned from loan at Arbroath, that's the reason.

He does look a good prospect,he looks the type that wants to get on the ball and doesn't lack confidence.

Really impressed with young Tierney when he came on. Quick and good on the ball. He'll need to put a stone of muscle on though. The key thing for me is where and how we play him.

The other thing I took from today is that we need to add another striker this window to replace Watt - not necessarily like for like though.

We need a winger also, someone that will take on players and actually put a cross in.  I thought hylton was bad but jeez woolery is running him close.  I wonder if 4 4 2 is answer going forward
