Fantastic achievement to get 100 goals. If you look at the way he plays now compared to say a couple of seasons ago, he drops deeper and stays more central. Prior to that he was good at running into the channels and getting one on one with a defender then using his power to create a shot at goal. If he starts to mix it up and do a bit of both he will get the move he wants and we will pocket a decent fee.

I would like to see us try to transition Alfie back to the sort of forward he used to be. Him dropping deep gave us a new dimension last year, linking up the play and creating space for the two number 10's and midfielders like Aribo and Arfield. It worked at a time when we were far too reliant on Alfie alone.

Teams have clocked onto that now, and when we play him with Roofe they both try to drop deep and can end up occupying the same spaces. Given Roofe can drop deep and link up play I'd want to see the rampaging Morelos of old back. Might be worth playing the 4-3-1-2 we used at the end of last season for a bit.

2 big assists back to back today and Thursday. It's easy to write him off but he is so crucial to us when he's on it.

Problem is that they are not on it enough, tav gets the assist today but lets be honest the defender made a complete cunt of the cross, now if tav throws in fantastic cross after cross you can say well its coming, but he's not even doing that anymore which is some turn around from previous form

We have too many players who show flashes in a game that somehow so far this season has found us top of the league, its like they play 4/10 for 88mins and 10/10 for the other 2, imagine we had the full team playing 7's and 8's for 90mins, we'd smash anyone in scottish football

Its not just that, in games where we playing against a back 4 on the 18yard line with a 5man midfield 10 yards in front of them all the time, morelos dropping deep simply takes him into a crowded area meaning his touch and pass needs to be spot on everytime, and it isnt, it never has been with him, 

We are playing 2 number 10's, so morelos should be on their last defender all the time, force them to space out and allow our deeper guys more space to work

Mentioned it in the match day thread, and I don't actually know their stats playing together, however, we need to find a way to keep Morelos and Roofe fit and in our starting line up.

When both are on, always feel confident one or both can score.

That's some return from the both of them.

 

That's incredible also

I was just happy to see the game still finish with a win we have to play much better and we need to be scoring more, we are playing hide behind the couch football just now.

The amount of seethe that image will already have, and will produce as more witness it in the near future will blow a hole in the ozone layer above Scotland, not a good start to Cop26.

Brilliant picture, yes he can be frustrating when he  misses the odd sitter, but I just cannot help loving the wee mad bastard.

:alfie:

Morelos and Rangers fans in irresponsible behaviour outrage. Dear Leader to address nation in the morning. Humza Useless to visit site of vile and disgusting scenes to spit faux outrage and condemnation into gathered mhedia cameras.

Or something like that come Monday morning.
