I didn,t forget fuck all. This guy is our No1 and he looks well dodgy. I seen the improvement in the second half and was well pleased

but that defending in the first half needs sorting out,or are you too thick to see it.

Don't think we need to start personal insults. Just to me, considering the new management team, preparation time and amount of new players in the squad i thought it was a magnificent day. We should follow the example of players and staff, think positive and like a team, fans included.

I do agree the keeper didn't get his feet settled or down quick enough for the first goal, probably needed closing down quicker by the defence and needed to play a little higher in the first 30 mins but certainly nothing that cant be sorted with time. Foderinghams distribution is excellent, something thats needed with our new style, looks like a big unit and has the right attitude as well, give the guy a chance.

Can anyone quantify how much more the ball was kept on the ground compared to the McCoist long balls?

86% (tu)

I basically just rewatched the game and took out any time Foster and Jig launched it forward, it amounted to 12 minutes of play

Fuck knows, but according to the official petrofac cup site, we scored 6 goals from 4 shots, now that's fucking impressive.

Big Wes was very scary, but he was put in a few of those scary situations by bad short pass backs from our defenders.

That must have been obvious to the management team, and I'm sure will be rectified quickly.

What won't be rectified so quickly, if at all, is his predominance as a left sided player, he really has to work on his right foot as he is showing a complete lack of ability in this area, and opposing forwards will punish us badly, as it won't be long before this weakness is sussed out, as during the game our defence were purposely passing the ball to suit his dominant left side.

Even a moderately decent striker will take advantage of this.

Don't think he had a chance with Stanton's goal as it was a good strike.

:uk:

Foderinghams distribution is excellent,

I'm sorry, but it isn't and would seem to be the weakest part of his game

His distribution as ball from hand is very good

There were some hairy moments from the defence, but I remember Advocaat's first game in charge and the similarities are there. 2-0 down to Shelbourne at half-time if I remember correctly. Second half was much improved with a 3-5 final score line. It happens when new players are settling in. The question is has our team got what is takes to be consistent and achieve success. Only time will tell.
