I think you might have found Lyons best position?

Whats Mullen's return like?

is it so much better? Five league goals all season and Jackson with six in twenty nine!

Danny's return is 6 goals in 26 appearances. Jackson 6 in 31.

Nazon is a poor footballer and a non existent goal scorer. This is shown by his performances in a St.Mirren strip and OK's picking of Mullen & Jackson over him. So, it would suggest the manager isn't too fond of him either.

Not sure why you're championing picking two bit part strikers in Nazon & Cooke to lead the line in our most important game of the split. 

A ridiculous suggestion tbh and makes no sense.

You do love to limit your statistics in one post and then ignore this in one of your next posts following that.  Let me explain it especially for you -   :bounce4

 

You were speaking about over the LAST FIVE games (Not 6 or 10 as is normal on all recent form websites) saying that we had taken the same number of points as Hamilton. (Blindly ignoring who each of us played and the significant difference in goals scores and conceded during these FIVE games. They have conceded almost twice as many goals as us over these last 5 games - and it is even worse for them over the last 6 and 10 games.

NOW - you move on to Mullen and say he has scored 5 goals all season:-

Firstly, he was injured for many games, but secondly over these past FIVE games He scored the crucial 2nd goal when we were 1 v 1 with Livi which we then went on to take ALL 3 points; AND the last minute equaliser against the Fakes after working his socks off for 94 minutes...

Over these same 5 games, Magennis equaliser won us 1 point and in the Livi game McGinn and Jackson also got a goal each...

So who else is scoring for us and what is there contribution to us scoring like?    :spud6

Tall CB's in my experience actually find shorter guys often more difficult to play against - ok, in the air it is less a problem, but on the deck it is. Shorter guys have to have an advantage in some way or all strikers would be tall - RIGHT ?

It's a good idea Hamilton will try every trick in the book.

You do realise you just highlighted how poor a return both Mullen and Jackson have given?

And given Nazon is a current international, was identified and recruited explicitly in January are you suggesting Oran ballsed it up?

on Saturday, yet again Jackson dithered and delayed every time he was played in allowing defenders to outmuscle him, ditto Mullen who thinks if he keeps throwing himself to the floor we will, like the Celtic team when they do it win the league!

Yeah you would play two guys who have one goal all season in place of our two top scorers who have 12 between them... You are back talking about all season rather than the last FIVE games once again - Oh it is funny to watch you jump back and forth...  :boxing

Ever thought about football management - don't for whatever unlikely team's sake please . . . :hammer

Two fairly similar teams stuffy but both lacking a prolific scorer (their top is Miller with 5) - their GD is worse as they racked up a lot of heavy defeats especially towards the end of Canning's tenure but I don't envisage anything other than a close game next Monday. I'd say that since we started to gel in mid-February we've been the better team but form is not going to determine the outcome of next Monday's game. We gave them too much of a start and unfortunately finishing in 10th spot is no longer entirely in our hands.

Both teams should be "up for it" and as I said on P1 we should expect a little bit of timewasting from them so let's get behind the team and hope that we can get the first goal this time - as ever COYS!

*****************

PS - Any info on ticket sales for the game?

We'll see who starts, and how we fare with that starting lineup?

i would be surprised if he starts with both Hobbits, given they contributed the square root of f-all against Well, and were simply brushed aside. Big call, for a season decider in 90+ minutes!

Will you be on to apologise if either of them make telling contributions?  :hammer  (of course you totally ignored my point on smaller strikers having something worthwhile - these things that don't fit your argument, just get brushed away don't they?)

IT is a big call being a real professional football manager - picking some good players over other good players most weeks. Now that we have more players fit - it is both good and hard too.

I have heard that OK's friend who does hypnotism is coming along this week - a bit like the Irish magician guy - my guess is he will tell them they have just beaten Barcelona and are now playing Ajax or T.H. in the final . . . hope it works a treat... :turtle

Often thought this. Pitch is so open would prefer if we could use multiball.

Not sure if allowed in our league but would suit us.

Edit to add how often the ball is hoofed over our low stands. If everyball boy had a ball, no problem.

Could ask Tony to contact the SFA - oh sorry we are not in the O.F.

Not a bad idea having extra footballs, so that the ball boys could get the game going quicker when the ball goes out of play...  :thumbs2

Mullen and Jackson may be better strikers, with more goals this season than the Duck and Cooke, but if they start on Monday then we need to play the ball to their feet or down the channels for them to run on to. If we're going to continue pumping high balls up front then I'd like to see either Duck or Cooke partner one of them.

You have a good picture of things. Playing to our strengths is important and Hamilton will set out to stop this.  

Actually, I think if we are going to utilise the Duck, then I might even be tempted to put him on for the 1st 30 minutes along with Mullen.

If the Duck is not better than his usual for us, I would bring on Jackson on after 20 - 30 minutes. I might even save Cooke so that if we need to we could have 3 yes THREE strikers on the park for the last 20-30 minutes or if we are Two goals in front with 20 minutes left OK might be tempted to bring him on and rest Mullen or Jackson for the final match.

I've also highlighted just how horrific a record Nazon has with us.

I'm not labeling Mullen or Jackson as top level strikers by any stretch but they have given and returned more than Nazon and that is why he barely gets a look in for a start these days.

Yes, i'm saying the well oiled recruitment machine got this one wrong. He's just not very good. A current international by default but lets be honest, Haiti are are around the same level as Feegie Star.

That Mullen diving to win the league line is just ridiculous. Get a grip.

I think that is one of his issues - he get's his grip at disaster scenarios that he makes up.

He rates Nazon, just as he did Stubbs - that speaks volumes to me . . .  :cheers

Can you show and compare Nazon's "Horrific Record" with that of Mullen & Jackson please. Happy for you to include all 40 league appearances Mullen has made for us so far. Three goals in the Championship, five this season ffs.

I never stated Nazon's record was horrific, but I know what Spam_Valley means. He is not just talking about his lack of goals with us - it is him getting sent off and looking like he is not very fit, cannot control the ball etc..

Of course you are happy to go back two seasons IN THIS INSTANCE because that fits your argument. He arrived only 22 years old, has he not improved over this period?

This season his contribution is :-

Premiership 21 5 0 0 5 1 0 0 26 6

26 appearances and 6 goals  - percentage goals per game  23%

Nazon's season with us - as it is not of interest to us now what he did before he came to us, is :-

10 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 11 2

11 appearances for 2 goals - percentage goals per game  18%

So Nazon's record for us is inferior to Mullens this season - YOU are the one who is slating Mullen - PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT EVIDENCE YOU HAVE FOR SLATING OUR JOINT TOP SCORER and the player with our best scoring % goals per game in the entire squad?  :fire2
