    Obika's hold up play has been very impressive

    Very disappointing. Opportunity to make the semi finals and having gone behind early, we’ve forced the opposition goalie into just one save in a match we were chasing since the 7th minute. Aberdeen didn’t even need to step into second gear after that, we made it too easy for them.

    Toothless performance. Aberdeen were there for the taking.

    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.

    I think he may actually be on 12 now.

    Always confident the goals would come once we started creating chances. Silly of me not to realise that what we really needed to do was play 2 up front.
    Big Jon is not a lone striker, he needs a partner.

    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.

    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.
