  1. Flanagan really making a cunt of it but collectively shocking defensive performance.
  2. Would be delighted with a positive result, this is going to be a massive test. Must admit I'm almost more concerned about the knock on effect it might have on Sunday's game which is a must win.
  3. Rookie managers, regardless of playing pedigree, make mistakes. Gerrard has made a fair few. Progressing in Europe is fantastic, especially as most would have considered this beyond our squad. The knock-on effect is that we have to play Thursday/Sunday and our squad struggles with that - be it the weekend after a European game or just the general impact upon training and recovery time etc (something Hearts, another side who overhauled their squad haven’t had to live with when gelling a new team together) Being in Europe has long term positive effects, but short term is disruptive. We’re improving, but sacking the manager now would be ridiculous and we’d be back to overhauling a squad and building a new one. This has to be the start of a push back against celtics dominance, not just another manager bombed out after 5 months.

    Will be a missed opportunity if we don't get a grip of this game. It's there for the taking!

    Tav and Candeias not linking as effectively as usual today. Not as fluid as their play tends to be.

    Scotland v England U21s

    That's a quality England U21 side - being able to leave guys like Lewis Cook and Ademola Lookman on the bench.

    Jon Flanagan

    Before the match the manager highlighted Flanagan was in to do a job on their best player. Ivan was subbed on the hour mark after, barring one shocking offside decision, contributing absolutely nothing. The whole team was excellent tonight, but I thought Flanagan did a great job down that side. He linked up well with Kent all night, especially second half. Good decision from Gerrard to play him and a great performance from him.

    His crossing can be so frustrating but some of his flicks and skills are unreal. He uses them at the right moments. He's predominantly a hard working, solid player with what seems like a tireless energy but there's some flair in there too.

    Was thinking the same about Goldson. He's obviously been in and around the Premiership/Championship for a while now but he'll have come up here and been blown away. Can only bode well for trying to recruit a similar type of player. Kent was excellent, some of his touches in and around the box were a joy to watch.

    Joe Worrall.

    I do too, but sometimes forget Katic is only 21 because of how accomplished he's looked so far. As long as he and Worral maintain a high level of performance I'm happy enough with them being interchangeable.

    I'm expecting something to end up in one of the papers in the next couple of days to deflect from that 10 european match unbeaten run and performance.

    Fair play to Gerrard for not making a change when it was tight. Can go for or against you and disrupt your momentum when the game is in the balance like that - worked out for the best this time. (Although to be fair Middleton was about ready to come on when we scored haha.)

    Joe Worrall.

    Exceptional tonight. That moment where we were 2v2 at the half way line, they were breaking and he just screened the one-two was great defending.

    Just wished someone would tell him Alfredo's name.

    Us vs the sheep shaggers

    That would be good. Wouldn't be surprised to see it drawn out a hat though. All that matters is that both games are the Sunday, cracking day of football and not being punished for representing in Europe by being forced to play Saturday.

    Us vs the sheep shaggers

    Wonder where the game will be held - both games are being played on the Sunday.
  17. Great finish from Middleton. The boy is flying right now!
  18. Part of the problem with the amount of focus on Morelos' supposed "temper" now is that refs are just going to book him for even a hint of dissent now.
  19. Cracking ball in from Kent.
  20. Great save from Wes there.
  21. Pleased for Halliday getting the armband tonight. Well deserved after his hard work.

    Daniel Candeias

    Apologies, I thought the laughing emoji would convey it!

    Am no being serious, chill out.

    Daniel Candeias

    I rate Candeias for all the positive reasons people have listed already. I do think sometimes he can be a bit sloppy in possession at times with his passing or his crossing but by in large he's an asset to the team. I think sometimes his first touch, trickery and intelligence get overlooked at times - he takes up some great positions. Even in games like Villarreal on Thursday there, he was pretty poor but he kept working and he set up Arfield's goal - that attitude is so important. One of the good things this season is that we have the option to rotate him too. If he's not quite up to it, we have Kent and Grezda to play wide right as well - or even the 352 with Tav playing wingback. That kind of competition should keep him on his toes as well. Also - will always be thankful to him for missing that penalty against Killie which lead to Caixinha getting binned.

    ****Official Good Guys v St Johnstone*****

    Sometimes Candeias gives the ball away cheaply but other times his touch and vision is fantastic.
