Whenever the ball goes to Davis you know the move will end while he takes his time to think about what to do with the ball before passing it backwards or to an opponent.  Also Davis can't tackle well enough to be a defensive midfielder.  He can run alongside the opposition players until he tires and passes him onto someone else.

We have so many better options for the midfield.  I would even play any of our youth players ahead of Davis now.

That's nonsense,what game were you watching the day? Who was it who was spraying the ball about the park in the 1st half? Who was it that was up beside Hagi on more that one occasion today. Fans complain when he dinks or plays a long ball over the top and they complain when he plays passes to keep possession,can't win.

Might be going against consensus but thought Polster did well other than a few poor crosses. Needs match sharpness clearly. Thought Barisic was poorer.

Morelos, Kent (bar 10 min spell), Hagi and Davis were awful.

Shagger worth points to us today.

Can't agree with you here mate.

Polster started ok from a showing energy and desire point of view but he had no quality, offered nothing going forward and was skinned more than once.

Barisic one of our better players for me.

He started 5 of our first 11 games mate. Two were against East Fife and St Josephs. He was not a starter for most games at all.

Ojo and Arfield were being selected ahead of him.  It was similar to Defoe, Jones was first choice back up and started some games due to rotation. Defoe had 6/12 starts.

Yea, he didn't start well, then started to get pick more as his game improved.

It's quite late IMO.

Thirteen minutes from the end of a ninety minute match is pretty late, I'd agree.

A wins a win at the end of the day. We have to get the ball rolling domestically at some point and we aren't going to just start beating teams 4/5-0 again randomly.

I want to see us put a run of results against the teams outside celtic before the end of the season to build up a bit of trust again. If we continue in this form I don't know how big changes can be avoided.

We looked like scoring every time we went up the park pre Christmas, I had no clue where that goal was coming from today, it was a bit of a fluke but if it gets us back on track I will have it.

Most of his passes are either misplaced or short and he always takes 3/4 touches before releasing the pass to slow everything down.  He nearly caused us to concede at one point when he misplaced a forward pass and Ross County were able to hit us on the counter.

He's a huge liability right now.  We need quicker passing and fast movement to break through defences and everything is slow and ponderous with Davis.

Didn't watch the game but hardly the most exciting result to look at 

It was the same game we’ve been watching since the winter break. Shuffling the ball side to side, lump it into the box. No one taking responsibility, no invention. Only difference today was we got a lucky deflected goal. We are fucking rotten and it’s grim viewing.

Didn't see the game today...... first match I've missed all season....... but I am just relieved to get the three points.

 

I understand Alan McGregor got mom but who was out best outfield player/s?

I'd struggle to give pass marks to any of them in the first half. Another opening 45 of utter shite which is worryingly becoming the norm for us these days. 

Outwith his goal, I'd say Kent upped his game in the second half. He stayed a bit wider on our right hand side which opened up the game a little bit more for us as we had a quick outball which we sevey lacked in the first half. He's frustratingly inconsistent at times, but there's no denying his hunger to get on the ball and at least try and make something happen, whether it comes off often enough is a different story. For the first time in weeks though I actually felt as if a goal was coming for us in the 5or so mins before we scored and that was mainly down to Kent.

The other big impact was the introduction of Kamberi. He's all action and his first influence on the game before he'd even touched the ball. Chasing down a long aimless pass that was destined to be a goal kick but ended up with us getting a corner. He's showed more hunger and enthusiasm in his cameo today than Morelos has in weeks. Constant movement along the front line giving our defenders and midfield someone to hit made a huge difference imo.

When we went to essentially 442 and put midfielders out wide it threw county off their defensive game, all of a sudden players that they were marking in first half werent where they were supposed to be, so it dragged them out of position,
