Your Views On Rob Kiernan

I messed up the official match thread, didn't realise there already was one.

What's everyone's views on our new centre-half Kiernan? Seeing mixed reviews, I think he's doing a good job alongside Wilson, he doesn't shy out challenges, quality in the air and comfortable passing the ball out from the back.

Anyone have doubts about him? If so, why?

Wins everything in the air, as expected.

Able to order people about into position well.

But he has been caught out a few times be it concentration levels for positioning or just generally on the deck.

He will grow into a player.

I think it's very very early. Commanding in the air, both he and Wilson are trying to come to terms with each other and it will take time to develop a partnership.

Both are skilful and comfortable on the ball, both can pick a pass and move forward with the ball.

They need time to develop into a partnership. Not sure how much they will be tested week in week out though.

Good solid defender who needs to learn how to pass the ball succesfully more than 10 yards.

Do you go to the games mate? Not being cheeky but the reason I ask is that sometimes things can look a bit different on telly.

St Mirren game he was firing perfectly weighted long range passes all game. I honestly don't think he missed the target once. He did miss a few yesterday but imo he's a decent passer of the ball.

Don't think he needs too much work on his passing but he needs to relax a little and learn to play the correct pass. Also think he and and Wilson need Eustice to protect them.

tbh its not a sitting midfielder they need, wilson and kiernan are more than comfortable attacking anything that comes face to face with them, its the ball in behind that gets them in trouble

alloa goal and st mirren goal are two examples of simple balls in behind us tha both kiernan and wilson cannot react quick enough too

Good solid player who wins everything in the air, will only get better imo.

Need to remember too that these players haven't even played 10 games together yet so just think how good they'll be in a few months time with everyone gelling nicely ?

That's just how we play this season. There's far more risk attached to our play and that extends to how high we play. We will concede goals this season quite often with balls in behind against lesser opposition, but we'll outscore them at the other end and a big part of the reason why is because we're so aggressive in attacking and pressing the ball.

I think, if we come up against Celtic this year, we'd move to a back 3 to combat the likelihood of them scoring. All other sides are fair game.
