Hot takes after 45 minutes of the first friendly of season are always the best ones.
Some on here should really find another sport mate.They have no ideology of the game.Edmundson won every ball in the air 1st half and looked comfy with the ball at his feet.Last week we had a poster telling us he was suspect in a bounce game.A f ucking bounce game ffs.
That's why today we saw the limitations of Goldson his distribution out of defence is not his gameLong balls aren’t what you use to break down a defensive side though. Whole point of a low block is to keep a compact, organised defensive unit.
Centre backs who can move forward with the ball and commit the opposition players is what you need. Hope out next centre back target can do that.
I agree, but you tend to find that defenders have to mark forwards and wingers. I thought he looked slow, just an opinion. Let’s see how the season goes. I’m not one for writing a player off after 45 mins of pre season.Centre backs are generally not as quick as wingers or forwards but I thought he looked pretty comfortable.
For me kamara & Davis solved that hence the decent run at season end. Killie aside.You get a settled back 4, especially the CH partnership, this was what killed us early on last season, chopping and changing.
If we need to change Centre Halves to win against the likes of Aberdeen, Killie then Gerrard isn't doing his job.
The problem in these games are the midfield taking the easy option, the midfield not running ahead, the midfield standing still.
Agree CC. And he really seems so settled now. He looks like a born leaderSince he has come back from his slightly shaky start last season, he's been phenomenal.
Considering the lad's only 22 yo, which is just a baby in Centre Half years, he's really proving his worth.
He's definitely in contention to be a rock in our defence for years to come.
I think young Edmondson's going to be a cracking central defender for us.Edmundson looked better than I had hoped today. Very comfortable on the ball and a great eye for a pass. Great to see him and Niko get game time together. Looking forward to seeing more of him, another potential bargain signing.
Im the same and ive watched the game and played a lot of football over the years.Granted in my case it was a very long time ago, but im still bemused with some of the football jargon now.
He'll need time, its a big step going from an Oldham to the pressure of Rangers, but he comes across well and is a hard worker, like our Niko, which helps. I'm hopeful he'll get some game time this year and be another shrewd investment for the club, he certainly looked the part yesterday which we should all be pleased with.I think young Edmondson's going to be a cracking central defender for us.
I know it's too early to judge the boy, but i think he looks as if he'll settle into the SPFL. with no trouble at all.
He's calm on the ball and dosen't appear to shirk a tackle, and looks as if he can pass a ball also.
Which i think is an asset in the modern game now.
And it may allow us to play 3 at the back depending who were playing against in certain types of matches.Only a thought.?
First match i went to was 1968. I just like watching the fitba. Its all too clever now and not much better if you ask meI know fine what a high press is. It's nothing new. Dalglish n Rush done it 40 years ago. I just don't know what a low block is. First I ever heard of it was on here.
