Has it got better or does he just have a better player helping him down that right hand side?

Candeias was my MoTM today, I think he helps Tav massively but I do think Tav has upped it

Think his new wing partner is helping him big time.

Before Tav was the creative force on the right side, so had to bomb up and down the wing all game. Now he has someone who not only shares that responsibility, but actually helps out by tracking runners.

He's not being asked to do as much offensively in this side which is a good thing for him in terms of developing the defensive side of his game.

He was posted missing again today when Dundee countered and Candeais was ahead of him and not covering, we got off with it but a better team punishes that.

Think he was still in a more attacking position when we won the ball back.

He cannot afford to do that against the beggars because Sinclair and Teirney will take advantage of that.

He has improved but still a long way to go imo.

Tavs been one of our most consistent players for a long time - just gets a lot of shit on Bears Den

Also the centre pairing are solid looking and cover in brhind both backs well - candeias is a good shout for mom.

Both fullbacks need replaced and we need better cover for Alves if he goes forward for a corner.

Candeias and Tav work well together. It would be brilliant, if we could get the same balance on the other side.

Apart from the periods where he seems to walk around lost he's improved. Still quite good going forward sometimes.

One period in the 1st half we were missing a right back when Dundee were on one of their rare attacks. Tav was wandering in centre mid. Maybe the manager told him to move there for a period but it is just one of these instances where he just seems to be posted missing.

Pity his tackling hasn't improved

It's a combination of having two better centre halves there, a decent holding midfielder, Candeias being a tenacious wee type in working back, and the team being better set up.

That and Tav improving a bit.

I think it's obvious that Tav is improving because he is playing alongside better players than last season.

 

It's as simple as that really.

Exactly. I think Tav is a great player, and I have never understood the , let's face it, over the top criticism he has received in the past. Unfortunately ,some supporters just decide they don't like a player and nothing will ever change their minds, which is pretty immature.

Said to my mates last season when most wanted him out that I thought there is a player in there and it just needs better players around him to bring it out and I think we are seeing it now.

True 

Tav used to have to rely on working with MOH Waghorn or Forrester on the right wing.

Now he has someone who is a natural looking right winger.

Fuck sake! You never played football did you, mate? Or if you did you were a striker? Defender makes one mistake in 90 minutes shocker!
