    It's funny, but had we been given that pen for that push on Simon early and scored, then I don't think we would have won - we probably would have played out the draw. We would have fired up as hard as we did late in the 2nd half.

    I was literally yelling this out in the second half. To be fair DDS really lifted too at the end, but his first half was a shocker imo.

    Yeah that's probably true. Fight to win till the end and as tonight proves, anything can happen. It's got to be the mantra of any true underdog side like ours. Which is something Lawrie always got, and instilled.

    Hmmmmmm...How to vote for player of the match. I think Matty deserves it for winning and slotting the penalties but then I’ll hate myself if we start him next week.

    Ziggy maybe? He had a big game with a whole lot of important blocks.

    Sorry FP but it looked to me like we played a 4-4-2 with a diamond formation this evening, certainly it was a back four anyway.

    Wee-Judas didn't have time to do much, but what he did do was so important. He was up in the box challenging for the ball & won the winning pen! The best bit of work he's done since he returned.

    I thought we started 3-5-2 but Kim moved up to make it 4-4-2, at times it looked like 2-6-2 and scared me. I need to watch the replay to check.
    Sometimes it seems to me that our structure is very fluid with players moving around freely. Quite often in defence midfielders are filling the role of fullbacks, covering for them when they get too far forward. It seems to work and allow the team to scramble well in defence but I fear it may be causing some of the need to scramble.
    It could also explain why we can be slow in transitioning into attack, no one knows where players are expected to be.
    Maybe someone with a keener eye to structure and a better understanding can explain it to me.

    Muzza looked more dangerous tonight than he has since he joined the club. I think that's because Jair was there making sure the defence didn't gang up on him. Matty starting doesn't have the same impact because defences know Matty probably won't hurt them too much so they concentrate on Muzza. Jair, although he hasn't done much so far, WILL hurt them if they ignore him, thus taking some of the pressure off Muzza.

    I was very happy when he came on. I was getting very frustrated that every time the ball went to DDS our attack broke down.

    Agrre completely. What Matty did putting two pressure pens away should not be discounted. But if he is only going to be on for 30 mins he needs to hassle the defence more. There is no point in Muzz chasing down a defender if there is another defender under no pressure from Matty.

    We were actually having this discussion in my bay... At times I thought it was a back four, one of our party though it was 4222, but it also shifted with Kim coming between the CB's and Miller and Oar pushing up field at times... That's when I thought we ended up being most exposed.

    That or we were all tripping.

    Definitely started as a 3-5-2 with Gordon, Kim and Rowles being the backs and in defence a 5-4-1 with Miller and Oar dropping back and Jair in midfield.

    Have to watch a replay to see how it evolved.
