As a huge fan of Tav, I have to say I think you're being kind to him and harsh on Goldson.James Tavernier is the best Captain since Davie Weir and the best right back since Gary Stevens.
I also think based solely on memory of the replay's at the time (would be good if someone could link to the goals) that yesterday's goal was more Goldson's fault that Taverniers.
When the ball came over I believe Tavernier thought Goldson was going for it this is why he was slow to react to it and got caught out.
A solid CH would have been right through a ball coming across his line like that.
As I said if I see a replay and I'm wrong I'll happily admit it, till then I then Goldson is getting away with it.
Sure he is going through a tough patch and not playing at his best but some of the abuse the guy get on here is shocking, I though we had rules about that on this forum.
36 seconds in shows Goldson check his attempt to clear it once he spots Tav being closest to the ball and clearly expecting him to handle it.
I agree with your last statement.
