  1. That's two sitters in 5 minutes. We need a bit of possession to settle things down.
  2. Absolutely shat the bed here. The defence was a mess at that corner.
  3. Salkeld showing up further up the park than Nesbitt a lot here. Alloa haven't had enough of the ball yet to say how much defensive balance we have, but it's good to see that flexibility with players being comfortable pushing into different areas. Having both of them press that high has been a key part of rattling their defence and not letting them settle in possession.
  4. That was superb from McPake to hold off the challenge before slipping that through.
  5. Confirmed that it's 3-4-2-1, Strapp and Omar out with knocks.
  6. That wee opening title sequence adds a sheen of professionalism. Good stuff that.
  7. Hearts are still to confirm their price, but of the nine announced so far we're the most expensive in the division. £9.99 - ICT £10 - Arbroath, QoS £12 - Alloa, Dunfermline, Raith £12.50 - Ayr, Dundee I know Gerry mentioned categories as if £14 would the cheapest price and other games would be more expensive, but there’s surely no way they can justify going higher than that when looking at the rest of the division. Regardless of the rights and wrongs of tiered pricing, above all else it'll guarantee no away fans buy it if we're marking up what's already the highest price in the division based on the opposition. They'll make less than they would with a flat rate through away fans feeling ripped off and refusing to buy on a point of principle if we punt the price up for clubs with more fans.
  8. You'd imagine that's 3-4-3 with Muirhead and Salkeld as wing backs. Surely Strapp is injured? McLean ahead of Ledger seems a bizarre call as well. Strapp, Lyon and Omar the players unable to even make the matchday squad, bearing in mind we're still to add a sub keeper as well. Unsure if that actually says anything about the pecking order or if that'll be rotated every week in the need to keep everyone happy.
  9. Regardless of how Welsh plays for Celtic, there's absolutely nothing wrong with saying he was shite for Morton: that's an undeniable fact to anyone with the slightest understanding of football who watched him. I reckon he might still turn out to be excellent centre back, but he's clearly not a right back and as that's where he played every week he was dreadful. Even in the unlikely event he goes on to play at the highest level and win the Champions League several times, it won't change that fact.
  10. You need to consider the long term consequences though. While this would be convenient for out of town fans who maybe couldn't make it through due to another commitment, once you allow clubs to broadcast within the UK at 3pm on a Saturday it's inevitable that TV channels will demand and eventually receive the right to do so as well. It's a slippery slope once you allow that outwith the current unprecedented situation. Fans who are already attached to a club and in the habit of attending games are still going to be attending regardless - although if they can watch it from home for far less many might think twice about away games - but over the long term you're making it considerably harder to attract new fans if all clubs are now having to compete directly with an English Premier League game and/or Celtic and Rangers at 3 on a Saturday.
  11. They've just tweeted that they're still to make all the codes live, hopefully that's sorted before Saturday so we can all check it's working tomorrow.
  12. As the Championship is sticking with three subs per game rather than going up to five, which I completely agree with, we're also staying with seven on the bench rather than going up to nine. Assuming that Nesbitt and McPake will be starters along with one striker, it's going to be interesting to see who among McGuffie, Omar, Oliver, Wallace, Orsi, Muirhead and MacIver can't even get a place on the bench when everyone is available. Unless the squad building policy is extended to team selection and we don't bother with any defenders on the bench either. Considering that Blues scored on Tuesday, there's a fair chance Lyon isn't even going to make the 18 man squad which is wild.
  13. Realistically the only way Partick are getting through from here is if they beat us then us and Queen's Park both beat St Mirren - even if they beat us then end up as runners up on 8 points they're unlikely to get through. Similarly we need to be taking 5 points to give ourselves a reasonable shot, but best make it 6 to win the group. Glad the remaining games are still meaningful for us anyway.
  14. Some laugh if category A just consists of Hearts and is £25.
  15. £14 for the Alloa game then. They referred to it as Category C... does that mean we'll have some league games classed as A & B charging more than that?
  16. That was well seen out. Ledger and Fjortoft were solid and bringing that frontline off the bench is some laugh.
  17. Conservatively seeing the game out in a 4-2-4 with Muirhead at left back. What a time to be alive.
  18. Blues turning into a marauding attacking midfielder is not something I expected.
  19. Never mind, just saw that McDade said it's Muirhead and Salkeld out wide with McGuffie off Oliver. Which makes a massive amount of sense, obviously.
  20. 3-1-4-1-1 (what?) should mean: McAdams Ledger - McGinty - Fjortoft Blues Salkeld - Colville - Lyon - McGuffie Oliver Muirhead Unless Salkeld is the striker with McGuffie on the right and Muirhead on the left. Some laugh seeing the lengths we need to go to ensure attacking players get game time.
  21. Aye, luckily for them they haven't said anything they shouldn't in public but they obviously have no idea it's still up. Good to hear they have a back up camera if something's wrong with the picture on one of them right enough.
