Despite giving youth a chance, coz he had to, Walter will always pick experience over youth/skill/drive/hunger

Papac in for Smith when Smith done nothing wrong

Weir and Bougherra back together, Wilson dropping out

Novo/Whittaker ahead of Fleck

McCulloch ahead of Edu, sorry, McCulloch ahead of everyone :(

He does not trust certain players enough and it has cost us in the past and will continue to cost us while he is manager.

Theres not much we can do except talk about it, hes not going to change.

gonna try and break down your post a bit mate.

Papac > smith right now so thats an easy desision

wier/boogie have been outstanding together for most of the season and i agree with a) boogie walking bck into the team and b) wier retaining his place, there was no option but to drop wilson.

big lee has been 100% solid for us this season....Edu has not

novo scores goals and terrorises defences, whitty has scored over 8 goals this season - fleck hasn't

It's not about trusting experience over youth, it's about experience being better than youth, we are in a tough title fight, i would want all the experience i could get out on the field.

hope i made sense and didn't just rable on lol

what do you mean break it down? <cr>:lol:

I prefer Smith, but each to their own.

Weir has been struggling for well over a year, weve been getting away with it

Big Lee imo is rotten, out of position and struggling, i can see past his 100% effort, theres not much more there. Edu is an athlete and a football player, he doesnt need to kick opposing players to get the ball off them, or foul them all the time, hes a natural central midfielder, Big Lee is not.

Novo is not and never will be a wide midfielder, again we get away with it on occassion, not nearly enough though.

Whittaker is really struggling, but i do like him

Experience is not always better than youth imo, depends on the players involved, all that experience didnt count for anything when we drew 3 games on the trot earlier in the campaign, or when we were embarrassed in Europe, or even dropping points at home to a terrible Hearts side, or not bing able to beat Motherwell or Aberdeen away from home.

Its not good enough.

(tu)

in response to the bolded parts, weir is almost always in the right place at the right time, barring a few times where he is done for pace, there is no substitute for that experience. he reads the game better than any other defender in the spl imho

big lee has been one of our most consistant performers this season, i honestly believe we would have dropped some points if it wasn't for him.

also some of our best displays this year have been with novo out on one wing and beasley on the other wing.

i suppose i agree that experience is not ALWAYS better then youth, but with the fight that lays ahead, i maintain that we need all the experience we can get at the moment.

I thought he was very good against St. Johnstone, rather suprised he got dropped after that.

I suppose that's the ways of Walter Smith.

Not playing guys that are injured? Sounds like good management to me....

Is he injured?

He picked up/aggravated an injury day before the Saint Mirren game. Obviously hasn't cleared up.
