Well said. They would definitely have more impact up the back of the East, but I wish moany bastards that have zero intention of supporting the team vocally and treat those lads as some sort of free service provided as part of their match experience they are entitled to, would appreciate their efforts a little more.I thought the manager done great swapping formation, and we looked very good after 60 mins. The guy is new to Scottish football and took on a team on the slide. He has 3 wins and one draw and the only defeat was to celtic in the cup..who will probably go on to win it. Give the guy a break!
As for the singing section, it is not difficult for teams like sevco or celtic to outsing us, because the whole 3500 fans join in. It doesn-t matter where the section relocates if people around wont join in. Even in the East it was often difficult to get the front of section 43, or even section 42 to join in.
It was amazing in the singing section tonight, though even there, there is quite a few fans who simply do not join in. The answer is not to bemoan the singing section, but to join in. Yes it would be nice to be back in the East, but we would probably still be outsung by 3500 away supporters, as they are usually drunk and it is an outing to them, same as when Hibs go to other grounds and more join in. Huge credit to the section tonight because apart from the first 5-10 mins after sevco scored, the singing was pretty much non stop....oh but please stop waving huge flags during the game, I cant see what is happening!
I was surprised we didn’t start with five in midfieldIt's maybe not going with the flow here but they came to do what they've done to other teams in recent weeks- whirlwind start, strangle the midfield, work their arses off and be a few goals to the good by half time. It almost worked for them, we were always one short in midfield and both Omeonga and Mallan were disenfranchised for the first half. Second half, we moved Omeonga more central, Mallan started to see more of the ball and the Orcs couldn't keep tbat intensity beyond the hour mark. They were gassed out.
They are aggressive, street wise, pacy and industrial. We have a skeleton squad and Heckingbottom's options are very limited. That team picked itself through lack of bodies.
No Bogdan, Whitty, Boyle, A6gyepong, Darnell, Gauld, Porto...and on and on and on. No Slivka.
Next game the 11 will just be Darren out, Slivka in. There's no alternatives. He didn't trust his bench tonight. He was probably right.
We will just have to trundle on until we have more bodies. Might not even be this season.
A good point in the scheme of things
Yip and McGregor grabbed hold of the ref yellow card for me.He's certainly up there, but he has some competition from his team mates.
McGregor the Sex Offender definitely has issues. He's seriously not quite right.
He came at Horgan studs up in the first half, and the tantrums he was having in the second half...…….deary me.
I was a bit disappointed his head didn't explode when he started jumping up and down in a rage.
If he wasn't a talented goalkeeper he's be a chicken catcher at Chunky Chicks, or maybe a steward at Dundee.
My worry about Hecky is we’re going to see percentage football. If we went long today as an effective tactic against a particular opponent in a particular circumstance I would be fine with it. If it’s going to be our strategy going forward then I don’t think it will end well.That was one of the most one sided games against Hibs at Easter Road I have seen for years. 3-0 at half time would have flattered us. We critisise other teams for hoof baw. Deary me. I will not go intae individual players, particularly ones who have simply not got it any more, I would not do that, however it was obvious. Spendid result against Hundogs nether the less.
Yeah East stand lost a lot of it's atmosphere but it was better tonight. Like to see them back in there.Well said. They would definitely have more impact up the back of the East, but I wish moany bastards that have zero intention of supporting the team vocally and treat those lads as some sort of free service provided as part of their match experience they are entitled to, would appreciate their efforts a little more.
Once the manager has his own team together we will start to see a more effective and stylish brand of football being played in my opinion. As I mentioned before he has very few options available to him in what he has inherited and up against a team tonight which has been free scoring in recent weeks and let's be honest has better players than we have, we had very little opportunity in the game to get the ball down and attack. His mistake tonight for me was not going with five in midfield and matching up with them meaning our midfield players were constantly being harassed when they got the ball and had very few options open to them when we did get possession. I thought the Rangers were very good especially on the counter attack and it really is difficult to play good creative football against a team playing like that.My worry about Hecky is we’re going to see percentage football.
