Alfredo Morelos is the best striker we’ve had since Jelavic 

thought him and Cummings worked very well together up front and that was their first time really - their partnership will grow 

i don't think it will be given the chance. Unless we get Morton or somebody like that in the next round he will stick with the main striker option. Murtys post match interview points in that direction.

Yeah, get the feeling he was just taking the chance to experiment with it against a lower league team

just as an aside - Somerset park had more fans in it today than Pittodrie has now.

It is for me was a howling miss, worst I've seen for Donks

If you slow it down it's very obvious why it's happened. 

Genuinely not his fault all things considered.

He was literally right next to the goal, bobble or not it's a horrid miss from that distance and an open goal to boot.

Nope. We will only see it against lower level sides. I'd put my house on him playing one up top again next game sadly

If I was Murty I would be harassing King to get the wallet out and get Goss on a permanent deal

It's early days yet and depends on what sort of fee was involved, but he looks a tidy player.

In what way is the praise been unwarranted? I have praised him but wouldn't say any of it has been unwarranted at all, i have said he is the best actual defender at the club in terms of marking/tackling. I haven't made any bold predictions of him becoming a superstar or any nonsense like that.

His performances last season were used against him by a few on here which is absurd, then we had someone genuinely raging about the handball that wasn't awarded at easter road and using that against him.

I never said from you specifically.

For instance, I've read that he's the best defender at the club. He's not even the best CH.

Why shouldn't he be criticised for the stupidity of the handball at Hivs? He got away with it that day, stupid decision to make should have cost us a penalty. It's daft is someone was raging that it wasn't given. It's far from daft to be annoyed at him for his action.

Any way, you seem pissed off on what is a good day so I'll leave it at that for now until @gsa comes on and riles you and sets you off again.

:rofl::lol: 

They are a wee diddy club at the end of the day.

We both know the next time their midden will be close to capacity is when they play us after the split :UK:

Milliseconds to react to the bobble.

Him scoring his first says more about him missing that chance. Fantastic finish.

Just watched it again, took a hell of a bobble, didn't look as bad at the game.

He is the best defender at the club imo, who is better?

He misjudged the flight of the ball after it took a deflection, it was hardly the crime of the century.

If @gsawants to talk absolute shite and say he is highland league standard, plays like he has never seen a football or challenges me to count how many times he gives the ball away then it's only fair that i challenge him on it. 

You took it upon yourself to answer for him so if anyone seems pissed off i would say it's yourself.

Exactly,  His finish on the half volley was a cracker, very hard to take but he made a great job of it.

Good old fashioned ground with a decent capacity and at least there wasn't too many police standing in the way blocking your view btw it was good to see not one player wearing gloves keepers aside.

Mccrorie and Tav are 2 better players who are defenders. And I'd say more valuable in a financial asset sense too.

Bates is improving but it's telling that we've not tied him up with a new contract yet, nor has any other club seized this wonderful opportunity and got him on a pre contract.

What are you on about man with crime off the century stuff? Has anyone even suggested it was that big a deal other than you in your defence of the guy? Stupid decision, got away with it. That pretty much sums it up.

Think you've got your knickers in a right twist needlessly.

Good to see Cummings get on the scoresheet too.

He put in a power of work upfront

I can think of a few goals that McCrorie has cost us and if it was big Bates he would be getting pelters for them.

Actual defending, positioning/tackling and awareness i would say Bates is better but Tav is a better footballer and is streets ahead in other attributes.

Yes, smell the hotdog went on and on about ut everytime Bates' name was brought up but he appears to be warming to him now.

I would say it is you who has your knickers in a twist needlessly as i did address my post to @gsa but you started replying:lol:

First 15 was,we controlled the game afterwards and should have been 2-3 up at half time

That's what was brutal about the first half, we could've and should've been 2/3 up like you say, but weren't. Just felt like one of those games at half time.

:tu: He played in Morelos from the right for our 4th, then he scored coming from the right-mid so you’re making a good point. 

:thumbup:

He just seems so right footed that I have no idea how he has apparently mostly played on the left. :confused:

He is Highland League standard. He's an extremely low quality footballer and nowhere near good enough to be part of the club getting back to where we all want. 

He cannot control or pass a football at the standard you'd expect from a professional footballer.

I'm more than happy with a 6-1 win!

And I'd love it if Bates was good enough and a viable option going forward, unfortunately that's just not the case.
