Dons - County - Sat- 3PM
« on: August 29, 2019, 09:47:05 AM »
Interesting one this.  Much like us, started well, but have faded and got pumped by Livi the other week. Difference being, they're still scoring goals. Really need to build on the fact we didn't concede last weekend but we also need to actually start getting some shots (on or off target).

Hard to see what will change this weekend, but hopefully see Hedges get a run about.  Still don't understand why he didn't play last weekend.  DM needs to play more attacking, we cannot continue with this turgid pathetic attempt at football.

Added spice this weekend, Dicky foster has just signed for them.

1-1, McGinn

Supposedly Taylor has declared himself fit so be interesting to see if Vyner keeps his place of if big Gash strolls straight back in.

Interesting to see if Ayrshire_don's team starts. Or will the ref suss the cunning use of 12 players??

Actually suspect that Bryson will start in midfield alongside Ojo and Ferguson. Needs another try although I have my doubts that as a trio they will prove to be an effective unit. Also expect Hedges to come back in at the expense of McLennan (though I'd rather it was Gallagher that got dropped. Beginning to wonder what the deal is that Cormack has arranged with Atlanta because despite being shite for every game except the home RoPS tie, he seems absolutely bulletproof)

2-0 ( Hedges, Ferguson)

Lewis

Logan
Vyner
Considine
Leigh

McLennan
Ojo
Bryson
Hedges

Wilson

Cosgrove


Would like to see a 4-4-1-1 type, James Wilson in the free role supporting Cosgrove, Bryson with the free role in the middle to go box to box when required, Ojo sitting & the wide players pushing up to support the forward area and going back to help the full backs. 

We need someone much closer to Cosgrove, it'd keep us up the pitch as Cosgrove will win more than he loses aerially and into feet/chest.

Replace Bryson after 60-70 minutes with Ferguson, and replace Wilson at the same time with Anderson, gets another hour minimum into two players who need game time, whilst giving Anderson a deserved half hour/15 minutes.

Not sure how we'll approach it obviously, but I hope to see intent, movement and speed, make Ross County dig deep as fuck whilst tiring them at the same time.

It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

 Quite like the look of that line up KFP,and wouldn't be unhappy with McGinn in Wilsons role if it came to it.Be fine to see something a bit more experimental from McInnes if only to divert the apathy

Taylor had a recurrence of his injury on Tuesday and is out for “several weeks”, as is McKenna.
Can you blame the man for going out of his mind temporarily?

If Taylor has had a setback, it will give us a chance to see how Vyner does in the centre, saw his debut at Paisley but hard to judge given farcical conditions .
Need to get back to winning ways asap. Hopefully see Bryson in the middle & would like to see 2 strikers (but wont hold my breath)

Don’t see the need for having a holding midfielder against Ross County at home so would go with Bryson and Ferguson in the middle with Hedges and McGinn wide. Agree with playing Wilson in behind Cosgrove. Thought Vyner struggled against a toothless Kilmarnock attack last week so if Devlin is fit I would go with him and Considine at the back. Really need a performance after last few games which have torture to watch. Expect County to sit in and be difficult to break down after a couple of poor results recently.

The purpose of a holding mid is also to allow our full backs to push forward and at our best we have Logan and Leigh in attacking positions.

Lewis
Logan-Devlin-Considine-Leigh
Hedges-Ojo-Ferguson-McGinn
Anderson-Cosgrove

3-1 us, Anderson, Cosgrove, Hedges

Logan out injured so Vyner to right back and Devlin in for McKenna. Playing 1 up front at home to County.

We've played one up front in 99.9% of the games under McInnes. It's not like that's ever going to change regardless of the opposition so I don't know why anyone would be surprised  :dunno:

Other than McKenna and Logan, today's team can't be far off the one many people would've nominated as our strongest before the start of the season. Hopefully they'll start to play like that...

Cannot stand the flopping and diving of Cosgrove. 3-0 up after 50 mins, not worth rewarding Anderson for 30 mins or so? Nope, let's give Wright a run. Grr. Cosgrove, McGinn and Wright missed cry good chances, should be more than 3.

And conversely they could easily have had a couple themselves with the missed pen and hitting the post.

Good result to go into the international break with, especially with the Edinburgh teams losing ground on us. Hopefully some of our defenders will be fit by the time we resume.

Well I enjoyed that today, went more in hope than expectation and when I saw the storm clouds over Pittodrie when walking up King Street I really did fear the worst, but when I saw the line up I was a bit more optimistic and predicted to my loons we would get 4 today.

Thought Hedges looked a player today, was impressed with him and both our full backs. Bryson did well enough, but you could see he needs game time. I also thought Ferguson had a better game today playing further forward, but his constant dropping to the ground is a bit frustrating to watch and still feel he needs taken out the first team for a spell for his own development. 

County were rough and I think they have players who are better than that, but got what they deserved, sweet FA.

Three goals, three points and a clean sheet and got back home happier than what I was when I left.

Edit: I forgot to add how great it was seeing Hedges leave Foster for dead at the corner flag in the second half, being the odious little cunt that he is made it even more sweeter.

Sensible post. Think we would all of taken a 3-0 victory pre kick off. ElginDon even predicted even if his goalscorers prediction was shite  ;)
