Annan game will we win this game?

Recommended Posts

They will need to play a lot better than they did midweek that’s for sure. Our main  focus should be to win it and secondly score as many goals as possible in the process.

“Take it on the chin and move on”. I’m sure that’s what Tony Mowbray was infamous for saying during his ill fated stint as manager of Celtic, where he frequently “took it on the chin” only to move on and “take it on the chin” all over again. :rolleyes:

Anyway, in answer to the question of tomorrow then yes I’m sure we will win. Whether we do it handsomely or make life difficult for ourselves remains to be seen but at home against Annan we will surely have too much.

2-0 ‘Well.

Personally I think Annan will give us a torrid time. I'll take a scrappy 1 nil all day long.

They will come and put 10 men behind the ball.

Up to us to break them down.

this is a league 2 side - reasonable to expect 3+ goals

I think regardless of the number of goals scored the first thing I would expect is a positive response from the players. They were clearly not up for it midweek.

No game chat? We all at Fir Park?

 

Unusual lineup to say the least! Maybe a 3 4 3?

I like the idea of both wingbacks starting much further up the park - gives us natural width and get a few balls in the box.

Can we please stop doing the same corner every time 

What's wrong with it? We've scored a few from set pieces since Alexander came in, no?

Yeah but it's not like a free-kick routine where you're trying to fool the defence...so then if you keep doing the same one then it defeats the point.

It's just to change the angle of delivery.

The other benefit is that it draws two men out.


One guy alone taking the corner = no defenders out. Two guys out there = two defenders not in the box.

When you do the same every time it becomes predictable and easier to play against.  Whether that’s free kicks, corners or jake Hastie’s one move.

McGinley was awful on Wednesday and has been awful so far today too.

It's got literally nothing to do with the opposition at all, it's not to try and be unpredictable or otherwise. It changes the angle you're able to deliver the ball into the box at, and as GazzyB said above it forces them to pull 2 defenders out of the area that we're trying to find space in.

If we handed a note into the away dressing room before the game and told them we were going to do that with every corner, it would still change the angle, and they would still have to pull defenders out the box. It's got nothing to with anyone knowing.
