  1. Pathetic. And Goodwin to blame. Beat Rangers last round, Aberdeen the round before, have beaten Livingston twice in the league and go into the game with a lineup and tactics like that? Not good enough, and the blame is squarely on the manager.
  2. That's all good and well, and I agree that he is the most likely to create, but he HAS to get his final ball right when he has the chance to, otherwise it's all for nothing. That opportunity was very, very simple, and he screwed it up. Needs to do better.
  3. Really wasn't good. Wasn't good at all. He was given the ball in masses of space, and had two possible choices - shoot or pass the ball in front of his teammate to shoot. He did neither. It was very poor.
  4. How difficult is it to either take a shot yourself, or play the ball in front of your teammate rather than behind them? Really poor from Connolly.
  5. Perfect opportunity wasted there to cut inside and shoot. We are not getting success going wide and trying to cross balls in. They are cutting out crosses and closing down on the wing. We need to switch it up and try to be more direct.
  6. Connolly has been poor today, really bad delivery and lack of composure, he needs to be next to come off.
  7. Throw in, in line with opponents box? Why not end up passing it back to our own keeper? This might be the worst performance I've seen from us this season. Very lacklustre so far, badly need to get a bit of dig from midfield in particular.
  8. Brilliant performance. And if Sevco had scored in that last minute it would have been a disgrace, well over the 4 minutes injury time. This might be our year again!
  9. A decent win, but even a number of Motherwell fans I know we're saying at half time that on the balance of play it could have been 3 or 4 to us, so only scoring one again is a bit disappointing. Some decent goal difference would be good!
  10. More than half an hour against ten men and haven't looked close to scoring. The team need to be taking advantage of these golden opportunities!
  11. Stop letting the man run at you, cut the ball out quicker. That was terrible defending.
  12. Brilliant save, but I'm going to say this anyway - I can accept giving away penalties to poorly timed, but genuine tackles, but not putting your arms round a player at the touchline and hauling him over. Stupid and needless.
  13. Our midfield seriously need to get a grip. The match is passing every one of them by. Defence is all over the place too. Goodwin needs to get a rocket up them and quickly!
  14. Was about to say that. I don't get it. Can still play with 4 at the back, 4 midfield, and 1 up front, so why the need to sit so deep? It makes absolutely no sense and never has!
  15. Aww no, but I wasn't going to ask for a discount anyway... [emoji1787]
  16. Here just now and about to tuck into my soup and toastie, looks good!
  17. Anyone know who the trialists were?
  18. And out with a whimper. Disappointing from start to finish from the team today, no imagination, no attacking threat, and to be honest no real intensity to our play. Very poor.
  19. I'm enjoying the fact that in the thread on our boxing day game, a few posters on here were slating Obika, and one or two (you know who you are) were saying he wouldn't hit double figures for goals this season. Yet here we are, still in February and he's on 11 (and should be 12 given his goal at Ross County was onside). Best way to prove the doubters wrong is to keep banging the goals in.
  20. So looking at the freezeframe for the second then, it actually WOULD have been offside if we hadn't played him on - although his feet were in his own half, he was clearly leaning forward over the halfway line, and it's any part of the body, not just the feet that count. We played him onside.
  21. My take on Obika, he has no pace, but has strengths in other areas. His hold up play and distribution is good, and he can actually turn, take on and beat a defender. The problem is because of how we are playing he's often doing this on or just past the halfway line rather than at the opponent's 18 yard box. He's actually scored 6 legitimate goals this season, not 5, because his goal against Ross county earlier in the season was onside but incorrectly chopped off, so the stats only show 5. He will get double figures easily if he can stay fit. Think otherwise if you want, but you'll be wrong. I actually like the Obika / Morias partnership. Thought Morias was excellent yesterday, one of our only players who actually presses and forces opposition players to get rid of the ball. I think these two should be the starting forward two when 4-4-2, and Morias kept in the wide position when playing one up front like yesterday.
