  1. A lot of you have probably heard of the SE Dons or maybe seen their GK on Soccer AM but if not they are a Sunday League team that do an episode on YT for each of their games, I love watching them! Anyway, I noticed today that there was a video of Big G and JD training, ended up watching it and I am not sure when it was filmed but it was uploaded a week or so ago and Defoe is just a hero man, look at how sharp he is and doing this off his own back during pre-season???
  2. Have you seen the goals weve conceded...shockingly bad!
  3. Struggling to get out of 2.undesliga but still top as thing stand, hopefully they can keep hold of it and get back up!

    Based on what? You only need to look at our record in the biggest games, games that for the most part Gerrard doesnt select Katic. I struggle to think of any games where has been very good defensively, but that doesnt mean he had a bad game, so I cant really argue that at the moment, but cant seriously think that Katic is as good on the ball as Goldson and Helander?

    I mean, you have said that he has shown he can do it in Europe yet when it comes to the games that matter, Gerrard doesnt play him. He played 2 games in the Europa League proper last season, the 1-1 draw against Young Boys where he was poor and then the home game against Braga where again he was poor, so much so that he got dropped for the away game and Edmundson thrown in ahead of him. He also only play 90odd "top flight games" which at 24 isnt great in my opinion and even if Balgoun does leave in the summer, we would look to bring someone else in ahead of him for me.

    Katic is getting better week by week on here! He is nowhere Goldson and Helander either defensively or with the ball. I think Balgoun is just as good a defender as the other 2 but not quite as good with the ball and even then he is still better than Katic. He is a very physical defender but is very raw at the same time. As I said earlier, if something had to happen to any of the other 3, we would need to bring someone else in as Katic isnt at the level of those 3.

    That sums up my opinion of him quite well to be honest, although I also think he lacks quite a lot with the ball, compared to the other CBs we have!

    Nae shit sherlock...shut the forum down boys and girls because thankfully only Gerrard's opinion matters, no point giving an opinion...

    I love the big man but is nowhere near our best CB, potentially or otherwise! He often gets caught out positionally and for someone so good in the air attacking set pieces, seems to get caught under the ball a lot in open play, its something thats always concerned me about him. He is still 24 and has a lot of time to improve but if we lose Balgoun, Helander or god forbid Goldson, we would really need to look at bringing someone in to replace them.
  10. This is it for me! Im not against rotation but last night we should have had our strongest team out, flying from kick off to get into the semi final, then if we get a lead, make changes. It’s another chance for a trophy gone and it’s not good enough, I wouid much rather we had rotated against Motherwell and made sure of the result tonight. We are desperate for silverware and as a team it would be a massive step forward to where we want to be! This just feeds the already fat monkey on our back!
  11. I agree to an extent, Bassey has a poor game, but I’m not against rotation. The decision to rotate so many against Lech paid off as we had players hungry to play there way into then team. For me though, tonight wasn’t the place to make unnecessary changes! Most people will say now, “it’s the league that matters” but surely we should have been going into this game as a must win. It’s almost as if people, the manager and players as well, expected us to just turn up and beat a poor St Mirren team but with that lot out of the cup this is a HUGE chance missed. Imagine the boost we wouid have got from winning the cup! There’s no need for panic but tonight we should have been flying out the traps at the chance to get to a semi final and instead we didn’t turn up. That’s not good enough!
  12. Someone has probably already asked this but are these over 1 leg again or is it 2?
  13. I remember thinking the hi's and low's of that game make it one of the best ever for me but the atmosphere was too tense to be the best, apart from after the penalty's. I'm not saying it wasnt very good, it was, but I also think the fact it was Hampden took a lot away from the atmosphere.
  14. How is this even a story?! We all know Souness is a dick but hes our dick. Hugh Burns is a good guy as well if a wee bit keen on the blue pound.
