  1. I think he's played well when he's been given playing time. At the start of the season he had niggling injuries but was still involved in goals. The hacks in Scotland have decided that he can't handle the physicality etc though and are pushing the narrative he's struggling, just like they're trying to push that Itten is low on confidence. Absolute nonsense.
  2. Anyone who thinks Gerrard is having a go at Kent over his current form is just looking for something to moan about.
  3. I can understand that, but without Hagi being there it doesn't fall to Itten and there's no goal. For me it's either Hagi's assist or just Itten's unassisted goal. I think it goes to show that sometimes stats don't tell the whole story, as it's one where both Tav and Hagi essentially set up Itten, but only one can get the official assist. As an aside, with Itten thanking him, I wonder if that's something they work on in training. I must admit I don't think it was accidental from Hagi; didn't just deflect off him without him knowing. He's an intelligent player so if he's able to be an asset like this in set pieces then it's yet another thing he can add to the team.
  4. Does Hagi not get credited with the assist for Itten's second? He knocked the ball down for Itten from Tav's corner, using his back albeit.
  5. Officials did too. I think if the ref could have allowed them to delay taking the throw in play would have stopped for longer; looked like the Feyenoord player didn't want to take it at that point.
  6. They've got decent fans like any other club, but they've also got absolute scum amongst their support. It's not uncommon for Feyenoord fans to try to goad Ajax fans with Nazi salutes due to the latter's links to the Jewish community in Amsterdam. I'd wager more than a couple of the fannies who do that had grandparents, great-grandparents etc who suffered under the German occupation of The Netherlands during WWII too. But hey, they don't sing anything about the pope so obviously we're the real hooligans.
  7. Apparently UEFA have upheld that Goldson scored last night. Not sure if you're sticking with it being Borna's goal - as it was over the line from his free kick.
  8. Sorry I missed this - haven't logged on in a few weeks. Certainly wasn't intentionally withholding a donation.
  9. I get what you mean. There was a period earlier this season where Kent didn't have many assists or goals in most official stats, but he was winning us free kicks that led to goals or sparked off a movement that led to a goal, or dragged a defender out of position.
  10. I was only kidding. Wouldn't quibble with anything in the thread - it's something I check often before or after a game to keep an eye on these. Glad you're keeping up the good work next season.
  11. Defoe should get half the assist for that second goal for conning the celtic defence and letting the ball go through his legs.
  12. Aberdeen can end up losing quite a bit out of this wee stunt, but the SPFL don't have the backbone to punish them as harshly as possible.
  13. If that's true then the SFA should tell them to swap those tickets with any unsold in other areas they were allocated.
  14. Technically he's not a signing from Canada; he's from Scotland, and we signed him from a team England... But aye. Fraser Aird looked a half decent played before Warburton decided to change him into a right back, and Cammy Palmer has potential. Having the Canadian national captain in our ranks just now will hopefully help us if we do try to look for good young players in that market.
  15. I do too, but in fairness Arsenal turned down the chance to bring him home. He wanted to return to England and after Arsenal passed his options were Chelsea or Man United. Turns out banking on Wilshire never really panned out either.
  16. They're paying folk to attend, I take it, as nobody is daft enough to pay £50 to attend those matches.
  17. Those clubs already rely on the fans of Rangers and celtic to subsidise them; without our traveling support and the TV revenue - and Sky, BT Sports etc wouldn't give a fuck about the league without us - so it should already be an entry requirement for top flight football. Our fans should stop attending away matches involving any club using a plastic pitch.
  18. They weren't really set up to defend all the time last season, and he usually looked good. Different level, granted, but people were sceptical about Marvin Andrews for similar reasons and he worked out. Allen and his scouting team have a good record so far, so if we do bring the lad back then they'll have seen enough to think he can do a job for us. Not dismissing your point though, as that is one of the difficulties faced when recruiting players from 'smaller teams' - it's why having a decent scouting team is so important.
  19. Shame he didn't make it to see 55.
  20. Only in Scotland, even though "fenian" isn't religious. "Orange bastard," on the other hand, is fine - even though it actually is about religion.
