Just a few points from yesterday that I took from game and this season so far would like to hear others opinions
1. Broony- now i like brown always have but maybe this year we need to start managing his game time a bit more. I feel this year brown has been looking bit more leggy and also is playing far deeper and slowing the pace down as he has almost been like an extra def dropping so deep for the ball to then pass it 5 yards sideways. I thought yesterday with calmac and ntcham in front of the defence our midfield were 20yards further up the park so when they received the ball and turned we had far more attacking options as we were already further upfield. Now i am not saying drop him all the time but surely against the lesser teams (no disrespect ) ie hamilton or st mirren we could afford to rest brown and try this different approach tht we had yesterday.
2. Benkovic- I personally feel we look so much more confident and assured with benko in place of hendry. He seems quite quick and gd turn of pace and also looks strong as well. I also liked his range of passing in his few appearances and i know he's just played a couple of games but feel he could be quite important for us .
3.Corners- This has been annoying me for a while now but how poor are we on set pieces in general. I don't realky know how much practise we do but surely we need to mix up our set plays more try more short corners or try different variations from them as we must have one of the worst records of scoring from corners in the league from the amount we get .
Hopefully now we can kick on from yesterday (timing of the international break is terrible) as tht performance will surely lift confidence and that we will start playing with tht pace and power that we have lacked for a while now.

Spot on with Broony slows play down to much. He brings so much in way of leadership so will be back in first team straight away.

Agree with most of that dezbhoy. The Brown scenario is a difficult one with him being club captain, but I totally agree over the past year we have adopted this sideways ultra slow build up to our play and Broony to me is the biggest culprit by picking the ball up deep and playing it sideways. There are certain games I wouldn't be without Broony mainly away games against the sheep Hibs Hertz and the Sevies. By not playing Broony every week it might benefit him in the long run as he's no getting any younger. Agree about Benkovic he looks a very good player pity he wasn't ours. Set plays not much to be said there apart from abysmal.

Dez I think it's something like 3 out of 100. I would agree we need to mix it up but benkovic looks like he'll score a few off corners.

Said this at weekend to one of the lads broony as much as I love him tends to play more as a 3rd centre half (can’t blame him way defence has been) meaning play drops back too deep and becomes more about controlled possession rather than conviction. Without him on Sunday the emphasis was on pass and move which was great to watch.

We should have had Benkovic signed the year before when his fee went sky high! We were definetley interested. Boyata needs a new contract or he will be gone for nothing in January. Any talk going round about Boyatas contracts situation?

U must be joking ken there's no chance boyata will sign on, do u think it's a coincidence that he's playing so well in the lead up to the window when he can sign a pre contract.
