Hyndman linked well with Flo. He tired but it was to be expected. Milligan is going to be a fans favourite when he is fully fit. Intelligent organiser, 360 midfielder. Bonzer.
We lost all our shape and link to the strikers when Hyndman went off - was the wrong change for me, Tam looked lost in the hole. Made even more strange when Horgan is been superb in that position a couple of times.

Positives - with the superb (although according to one expert in front of me he was too slow) Milligan we have numerous options to line up with a well balanced midfield. Boyle looks like he’s getting back to where he was and Efe was sublime.

Negatives - as per everyone could see the amount of chances we passed up. We’ve been taking them up until recently (think we’re top three scorers in the league?) so I hope it’s just a blip. The striking situation does concern me, so light of options. He’s not likely the answer but what’s happened to Lewis Allan? Did we really need Daz, Marv and Whittaker on the bench? Surely he would’ve at least been an option.

I’m hacked off we’ve lost an opportunity of winning a cup, but based on tonight confident we’re heading the right way.

Bounced Out!
Watched the game in Thailand last night with some Aberdeen ex pats. They couldn't believe they managed to pull that one out the bag. I couldn't be arsed explaining to them that no team shoots themselves in the foot like we do.

I started watching the replay but switched off too heartbreaking. To be fair it did look like a handball on Boyler's disallowed goal.

If we had our shooting boots on we would have been out of sight, we dominated most parts of the game and we cut them open time and time again but fuck me we have to be a lot more clinical in front of goals. The ref was brutal as once again he lets players like Shinnie away with murder, Shaw and Kamberi didn't work and we are missing Jamie massively, I was surprised to see Hyndman playing but to be honest I thought he had a decent game, Boyle should have been hooked for Horgan as I thought Boyle was brutal last night.

To go out on penalties isn't great but how far was Lewis off his line for them, felt sorry for wee Tam done everything right to but it doesn't favour the side of the goal line we wanted to drop over.

Boyle was brutal? I'm so confused.
His last cross of the game was brutal, but before that his pace was terrorising them. 2 good finishes. Despite both being disallowed. First half hour he was squashed back by their left sided player, but after that he was on it until near the end.

His pace was terrorising them....he had plenty of chances to run at them and chose to turn back, he was anything but clinical in front of goals, so for me last night he was brutal.

Folk at the game, as opposed to watching on the telly box, will know Boyler had a late fitness test with the physio before the game on the pitch. Throughout the game he was stamping his foot, which has been injured for a few games, trying to shake it off. To play 120 mins +, take and score a penalty when less than fully fit is a credit to his commitment and desire. With so many other injuries just now he was brave, silly or a bit of both.

That isn't an excuse for some of the finishing but it provides some context.

We've been bleedin unlucky with injury and I suspect Horgan was rested because he wasn't fully fit, Hanlon subbed because 120 min was too much for him after injury (Physio was clearly consulted ahead of his substitution) and Flo likewise. Add to that Milligan trying to get up to fitness, we are stil a few weeks away from being able to field a first choice 11. Frustrating but I'm not sure we could have genuinely anticipated the extent of the injury situation.
Those asking for us to have signed a 5th striker, what other clubs outside the big dogs have that luxury? Flo and Jamie were signed as first choice, oli and Allan as back up.

Good post SK11 although sure Hearts and Aberdeen have more choice than two experienced forwards and two kids up front?
We have signed a Dutch left back who will potentially hardly play could maybe have chucked that cash at a forward.

We've had players like that before who did or brought nothing. Big Dave being the last one. Anyone in that position would be signing to be 3rd or 4th string. Not sure how many decent players would be up for that.
There's lots of folk (Not me personally) who have been keen to see pressure put on Lewis. I've seen and know enough of Sean Mackie to have him as good back up. Midfield has been the biggest hole to fill. Just my own opinion...
Injuries aside, the first choice forward partnership would be undisputed...for most. As always, there are some who don't rate Jamie and Flo. Just as some don't rate Efe.

And the shouts of hun, hun, hun at Whittaker everytime he touched the ball. Ironic given Dominic Balls old team and the allegiance of their hun manager.

I agree on MoM and the runners up.

I have grown to hate Aberdeen and particularly that shite Shinnie. He should have been sent off, the referee shat it.

Which makes it strange why Allan hasn't been on the bench for the past couple of games after starting against Livvy.
We can only have so many on the bench.
Who's on the bench that we should drop for another forward player? Even Darren didn't make the bench when we played with 4 at the back.

Any one from Whittaker, Daz or Marv. When you look at the players on the park, the formation(s) and where each could play we should have had more than enough in that area (appreciate two of the above three came on) to only require two of those three.

Lennon mibbes disnae think he’s capable.
He must see something to have given him a new deal in the summer and to have started him ahead of Shaw at Livvy.

Whittaker is being used regularly for us, makes sense that he's a permanent bench fixture. Plays across 3 or 4 positions.
Bartley was to come on in the middle of the park. Because there was no other actual central mids on the bench.
Daz was there. And tbh I'd have rather seen him used than to drop Milligan into the back 5.

Lennon makes plenty of weird choices when it comes to making subs.
But his bench selection makes sense to me.
