I thought we started well and had 2 good opportunities to score ( Cosgrove x 2 )

They didn't register their first effort until the 31st Minute, and even that creature Tom Commentator ( Don't know his right name ) said he wasn't used to seeing teams come and play this way ( A comment echoed by Gerrard after the game )

I think we were worthy of our Point, both Keepers had a good game, thought we were fairly solid defensively, but something isn't right with Cosgrove, he's been so far off the pace it's unreal, his touch when through one on one was fucking amateur, before the break, he's burying that! Still not convinced that McGeouch, Ferguson & Ojo can play in the same team to be honest, but they all put in a good shift.

Wee mention to Gallagher, thought he came on and caused problems, initially, he was direct and forced a couple of saves, perhaps just off Cosgrove is his Position?

Anyway, a merited Point, a decent showing and now we really need to build on it, Motherwell lost today, which helps.


I agree thought Gallagher had a big impact and forced mistakes from them. I'd keep him there for the start of the next match but I'm sure del won't.

That's twice Gallagher has looked good against the Huns in a central position, but not sure he'll get as much space to exploit against other teams who are more likely to sit in with a deeper back line.

Every team gives us that space. They drop deep because they know we go long ball and don’t have advanced central mids. I wanted hedges to be brought on there yesterday, a bit more skill and a decent shot, but Gallagher did have a positive impact. But you are correct, I don’t see McInnes dropping Ojo mcgeouch or Ferguson.

Gallagher is perfect in that role when we're likely to have less possession, it's blatantly obvious (and obvious he can't play out wide). It fits all his strengths. However, when we've got more possession, which we regularly do, then it has to be hedges or Anderson in that advanced role. McInnes got it right for the most part yesterday, as he regularly seems to against the huns (before making the same rudimentary errors against teams we should be beating. Neither Gallagher, or the holding midfield trio should be starting against killie. We need to be forward thinking at home.
