  1. I would hope with Ronan and McGrath then we try keeping it on the deck and using the midfield instead of going with the route one we have so far this season. These boys should be able to help get the ball up the park with pace. Excited to see this play out as hope we get it up Utd.
  2. Thanks to you [email protected]@FTOF for your input. I waffled on a lot. I agree with you both. I feel if we stuck with how we were set up the start this season might not have been as bad. I think the fact new and old players with a new system does take time. I also believe we were missing some key positions being filled before the start. I feel as we were hoofing the ball up, we were missing someone in the middle to take to ball and help move it up the park and dictate play. I hope that is Ronan from the chats of him in articles. I hope Millar brings the pace we have missed in Connolly, but brings the added engine and defence. I like the idea of 352. Can be very versatile and attacking if have the right people. I feel at times to help with width the strikers are pulled out to aid the wing backs, but not then got the drive coming from the middle to move into the space left. I feel that was why he had McGrath and Kiltie on to do that, but wasn't working. I think the middle needs someone to cut the passes and dig in like power. It needs a box to box that I hope Ronan can be. Finally needs an attacking threat that is McGrath. I also feel to help not drag both strikers out, McGrath could be an option what ever side the Ball is at, to go support the wing back and allow them to overlap with him, he can then slink back to middle at the edge of the box. Waffling again. I do like Jim a lot. Was my favourite player back in his playing days. I hope it all works out and it clicks for us like it did for St. Johnstone and we can push on higher again. I like that we didn't just jump for anyone (that Hibs deal I'm not sure where Wright would have fit in) and we have got Miller who should fit the system.
  3. Not being arsey or anything, but I would like to know your thoughts on what don't agree with? I like to hear others thoughts in a respectful debate. I was waffling on in the post you quoted, but trying to see the difference to last season and with the new set up. What I liked about last season is the back 4 were very solid. I felt our issue, like most teams not Celtic, Rangers or Hibs was attack and goal scoring. I was hoping with Fraser signing on that the defence side was secure and we would look at the attack more. I think for me the thing that has unsettled everything wasn't just new signings having to fit in with an existing bunch of players, but the existing bunch having to try fit in to a new system too with the 352. I do feel we haven't filled Durmas or a striking options that brings something different (goals would be good haha).
  4. Got the 3 of ours today. Hopefully they works on Saturday. I cannot wait for the Utd game. Cards easier to remember than paper barcode, catering is open to introduce my son to a pie and bovril and after speaking to him Marcus Fraser is going to come to the barrier when warming up to allow my son to thank him for his signed boots. The wee man is very excited for this and to show him his Fraser 22 top.
  5. You got your card through? I haven't got anything yet. Hopefully before get it before the game at the weekend.
  6. We have been played with wing backs so far this season and Flynn is t getting a look in. He also I wouldn't class as having pace TBH either. I do wish he was getting some time on the pitch as Erhahon is very inconsistent and I think Flynn could potentially help link play in the middle instead of playing Hoofball
  7. G'day Matthew. This is exactly what we needed. Gives us pace and width down the right. Can play right back, right wing back and right mid. Fantastic signing that we are lucky was on the free market.
  8. If the rumours are true and we are signing Matt Millar this is a step in the right direction if we are set to play 3-5-2 system. What I know about Millar is he can play right back but seems more natural at getting forward like a right wing back. He might not be incredibly creative but has pace, which we really need, he seems to be able to get forward and can cross a ball in. He seems to have a good engine as well to continually get forward and back. Likes to get forward like Tanser does, so would hope this balance the side out and gets us what we have needed (pace), but fits the system we are playing now. My take on it, but last season was pretty good finish, but this was playing with what was a soild 4 at the back formation. I like the signing for people that can play multiple positions as should then allow for th eformation to change depending if at home or away or depending on the other teams set up. Early days yet to see if this will happen as we continue with 3-5-2 no matter what. What we lost from last season and have found replacements for: LWB - Mason = Tanser CM Doyle-Hayes = Ronan ST - Obika = Main CDM - Sheron/Foley = Power Lost and potentially signing a replacement to fit the system: RM - Connolly = Matthew Millar (RWB/RB) Potentially going & replacement: CAM - McGrath = Kiltie Players we are yet to replace: Durmas Quaner/Morias We then needed maybe 2 more in to build on last season's form, but to either fit this system or to allow the ability to change it up. Needs not met: * Pace/Creativity - LWB/LM/LW * either/or Tall/Strong/Fast Striker What we could look like if Millar comes in (Starter / Backups) 3-5-2 GK - Alnwick / Lyness / Urminský RCB - Fraser / Finlayson CCB - Shaughnessy / McCarthy LCB - Dunne / RWB - Millar / Henderson LWB - Tanser / Tait CDM - Power / Erhahon / Reid CM - Ronan / Flynn CAM - McGrath / Kiltie / McAllister ST - Brophy / Dennis ST - Main / Erwin 4-5-1 GK - Alnwick RB - Fraser RCB - Shaughnessy LCB - Dunne LB - Tait CDM - Power RM - Millar CM - Ronan CM - McGrath LM - Tanser ST - Main 4-2-3-1 GK - Alnwick RB - Fraser RCB - Shaughnessy LCB - Dunne LB - Tait CDM - Power CDM - Ronan RAM - McAllister CAM - McGrath LAM - Kiltie ST - Main 4-4-2 GK - Alnwick RB - Fraser RCB - Shaughnessy LCB - Dunne LB - Tait RM - Millar CM - Power CM - McGrath LM - Tanser ST - Brophy ST - Main
  9. Top printed today with my son's favourite player name and number. Cannot wait for him to see it. Looks great. The guys in the shop have made the place look great and the service/experience is top dollar.
  10. Yeah there are. My brother bought my son some.
  11. Just my take on it. But last season was pretty good finish and we should really have looked to build attacking options on to it. What we lost from last season and have found replacements for: LWB - Mason = Tanser CM Doyle-Hayes = Ronan ST - Obika = Main We also brought in Power. Not sure if that was to take the place of Sheron/Foley as that I feel is the position Jim wanted them in to play. Kiltie might have been brought in as a back up if McGrath left, but hasn't. Players we are yet to replace: LM Durmas RM/LM - Connolly ST/RM - Quaner/Morias We then needed maybe 3 more in to build on last season's form, but to either fit this system or to allow the ability to change it up. Needs not met: * Pace/Creativity - LWB/LM/LW * Pace/Creativity - RWB/RM/RW * either/or Tall/Strong/Fast Striker Can these be met in the free agent market and with only Scottish, English, NI, Welsh or RoI players due to Brexit? Who knows.
  12. Is he not like a Left mid/ Left Wing / right mid kinda player? Where does that fit with wing backs?
  13. The club keep saying it. On the letter with my season ticket barcode they talk about it or building on last season's push for it. Last season we were defensively sound in my opinion. We needed to get the attack sorted. Instead we changed the system we play and I really wonder where Kiltie fits into it.and why if going with wing backs we didn't then try sort out the issue with RWB as we knew what we had and they can't play there.
  14. I f**king hope so. With McGrath even as the squad was, we were short of pacey and players that can take a ball forward. If Ronan is a direct replacement for McGrath, then we are still way short. The league is more competitive with hearts and Dundee back. At this rate and system I cannot see us making too 6 with only being away from it by goal difference. We did so well defensively last season we should have stuck with that and built on the attacking side. Not change the system too.
  15. I worry that people are naming Kennedy and Ronan as I'm sure Jack Ross does his scouting from here.
