Welcome Anders Dreyer

Every major chance we created in the highlights package - apart from the third goal - heavily involved Dreyer yesterday.

His passing in the final third opened Livi up on several occasions. Think we are seeing him adapting to this league and hopefully if we stay up, Brighton will give him a full season with us next year to continue developing. There's an absolute gem of a player in there and he's got the ability to pick a hole in most defences.

Only been a few games since his contribution was described as "unacceptable". He reminds me quite a bit of Kenny McLean - retains possession well, and very tidy in linking our forward play.

Hopefully Brighton stay up, or there's every chance he could be given gametime for them in the Championship...

Dreyers showreel showed him with a cracking left foot, scoring goals and delivering killer set pieces. I still don’t think we are seeing that from him. His corners on Saturday were mostly way over hit and he seems reluctant to have a pop when the chance arises.
There is a player there but I think we should be seeing more.

Kenny learned he had to add hard work and defending to his game.

Might be interesting to see how many goals he's had a hand in Two against Dundee one against Hamilton and at least one v Livi  That's some return from someone we're not seeing enough from

I think his problem is the promotional video we saw of him looking like a young Brian Laudrup . That said he,s gaining in confidence , seems to be enjoying himself , and he,s doing okay , quite an intelligent player , who I'm sure will only get better .

What he does is avoid costly losing of the ball and as a bonus on that we get to maintain pressure 

a modern footballer in every sense of the word

Just like Gowser at his peak. Ignoring Gowser's off-field issues, we really struggled to replace his ball retention the season we went down. It's invaluable for a team at the wrong end of the table to have a guy who doesn't panic in possession and who can find a bit of space and bring others into play. I'd love to see Dreyer playing that role (for us) next season too.

I will also say this: the emergence of Dreyer and Flynn as actual proper football players under Kearney speaks volumes for his ability to bring players on and improve their confidence. Any fan who says they had high hopes for Flynn four months ago is flat-out lying. Same for Dreyer after a few appearances.

Oran Kearney is the man and must be backed to the hilt as manager of SMFC next season.

You make some good points. I am not sure we will get Dreyer back for next season though, but like you I would be delighted if we did.

We're in a great selection headache position right now across the midfield. P McGinn, Flynn are on the form of their lives with S McGinn & Dreyers really important performances. Mccalister and Maggenis showed what they're capable off and what they add off the bench Saturday.

A welcome relief

I'm sure this doesn't include Saturday's game because Jackson and Mullen's goal tallies are one short. Therefore add one assist for the Livingston game.

Contributed a goal/ assist every 145 minutes then? Not bad at all.

Christ , those stats don’t look good at all. Top scorer 6 !

Isn't that one of the main issues why we are at the wrong end of the table. Also of note is that apart from the obvious top teams, there is a real lack of decent goal scorers at all the lower teams:-

Motherwell are the best in this area but their top is Turnbull (midfielder) on 10  then Hastie (midfielder) on 6 then Danny Johnson on 6

St. Johnstone top scorer is Kennedy on 6

Livi's top scorer is Hardie on 7 then Halkett on 6 then Pitman on 4

Hamilton's top scorer is Mikel Miller on 5

Never mind 4 more games for our top scorers to add to their tallies . . . :D

These stats are exactly why people shouting for a “goal scorer” need to be realistic - these guys are so hard to come by.

That is one way of looking at it. The other is that we need to grow more or capture better goal scorers when they are younger. It has always been a Scottish Problem.

English League 1 has 12 scorers with 15 or more Championship has 12 with 15 or more  ( 1 with 28, 1 with 25, 1 with 24, 2 with 23, 1 with 22 and 2 with 21

So there is 24 of them at a decent level - our not very high standard league managed just 2 with 15 or more goals in the league this season.  

Wonder why we are donkey's in Europe . . . :magic

I did not paste in all the predictions I made - but my track record is good and was acknowledged so by Spanking _ Panda. I did say :-
1) We would sign a FB who could play at CB too - Mateo has now signed within hours of my prediction. and he can do both these roles
2) I knew the winger was imminent and said so - I also said it was McA NOT Morgan and McAllister was announced a few hours later.
3) I put a line through another's post about a defensive midfielder cause I knew we were signing an attacking midfielder and we very soon after signed Andres - You may argue that he is a winger or a striker but he is definitely not a defensive midfielder. He played an attacking midfield role against Hibs yesterday.
4) When people were trying to figure out the name of A player with the letters, I let folk know that the mistake they were making was assuming that it was for one player. I also said that it was not for Murray and Carey as someone else predicted - and we signed Andres and Mateo shortly after...
5) Way back at the start I said we would offload 12 - 16 players when others were presuming far less (We have currently offloaded 16) - I also said we would bring in far more than the 4 or 5 some were quoting - We are currently at 8 with more to come...
I am sure there are other things too - but hope this is sufficient for you for now - if not you have a trawl yourself    :ninja


Do you really think I read such drivel?

If only we’d signed Liam Smith!

You find it too difficult holding back when you keep getting put in the sin bin - so you re-emerge, but the old bile keeps welling up and the hatred spews out to give you away again and again as you stalk those you hate the most. Will you ever get help - it cannot be much fun being you...

Only a matter of time before Div bins you with this alias too...

The main forum is far better without your imbecilic attempts at ALL the attention - better talking to yourself in the Sin bin and save the rest of us . . . but when did you ever do the right thing????   :bounce2:toilet
