He booked Shaugnessey for his first tackle. Let Shinnie off with at least three bookable offences & (as per usual) stole the limelight with the lecture to Tony Docherty.

But by his standards we got off lightly.

That was as bad as I remember it.

Loads and loads of corners for us, but not one came to anything worth even showing as a highlight.

Our achilles heel of being vulnerable at home to organised counter-attacking teams is still very much with us by the looks of it - we've just somehow got away with it in several matches that probably could have gone either way.

I trust us much more away from home, when we can be the side that plays like that.

Aye but does he really need to take 5 minutes to yellow card someone, then carefully put his card back in his hipper and his pen down in his sock, then pace out 10 half paces for the defensive wall,point to his whistle,and then blow it. Nae chance of taking a quick free kick with him.Then he has the cheek to only add only 2 minutes at the end of the game that had 6 substitutions.

Agreed - I wonder if switching to a 4-4-2 at home if we cannot break a team down would help - it would let the opposition forward and give us space to attack.

The 4-5-1 at home just pushes everyone into the oppositions last 3rd where we fail to create chances with the lack of space - then they hit us on the Counter e.g. ICT and Motherwell recently.

Not 'another BITB', the same Craig Thomson ('our best offical') who, as I said in another thread today, turned down a stonewall penalty for handball against us the other Friday but gave a free kick for the same offence, against the same player today from which Celtic scored. Butcher made the same point after the game.

Absolutely. I've shut up about it as my recent comments have prompted questions as to whether I will be appearing as a guest on the Beechgrove Potting Shed. But sprinklers on a green carpet in January before the game against Hibs and at half time - amazing. And compare that to the sink estate school playing field at Mothertwell yesterday.

Hard challenge but never in the month of sundays is it a sending off.

The thing about this site is that no matter what the event at football, there will always be some people that take the exact opposite view to others.

I believe that the player should have been sent off. This was not a player that ran a couple yards to get to Jack. He ran 5 or 6 yards. He would have been almost at full speed when he put in the tackle.

I think people are just looking a the tackle in isolation, as shown by the zooming in of the incident on the television. However, this is slowed down and does not show the whole incident.

People are saying that it was unlucky that he was injured... must have been how he fell... or he twisted himself etc. If you have had someone run at you for 5 to 6 yards are full pelt and challenge you like this few people would have not been injured. Also the ability to time a tackle like this at the speed he was doing is a

The distance that Hutchinson slid to make the challenge on Jack would suggest he wasn't in complete control of his body, and I think a red would of been justified.

Just watched the highlights online. Good result and looks like we had most of the chances which is also a good sign.

Hutcheson's tackle on Jack was just a yellow in my opinion. Also think we were lucky that Anderson's equaliser was allowed to stand, could have gone either way.

Langfield was sh1te for the 2nd goal. Can't believe there are still people who stick up for this goofball.

Just for clarity, how would you order culpability for the 2nd goal?

In my view, at most, Langfield is the third most responsible, possibly fourth and Anderson is the most responsible by considerable distance.

As for the tackle, I think it's the classic example of where it's open to interpretation. If an Aberdeen player makes that tackle at Celtic Park, he's off, fan reaction, ref incompetence, whatever, it's a straight red, guaranteed.

Referees take the easy option almost every time. A two footed tackle will almost always result in a red now, even though its likely to be far less dangerous than the lunging, scissors assault on Jack. Even a fairly high, crunching two footed tackle is likely going to be absorbed in shin pads, whereas the other sort is always unprotected, normally off balance and from a blind si

The second goal was a shocker.

I think Anier had just come on, and there seemed to be some confusion between Considine and Reynolds over who was picking him up.

In the event neither did and he was allowed free reign to drive a dangerous cross into the box.

Russell was well placed to cut it out, but hesitated for some reason.

This left two Motherwell players, Joe and Clangers in the middle, but it should never have got that far in the first place.

Nae asking for an argument, just think it's odd to highlight Langfield at that particular goal when Ando is clearly ball watching and his man lumbers in the score in heaps of space and at his leisure, and the winger is allowed time and space to deliver a great cross totally unchallenged with both Conso and Reynolds seemingly confused as to who is doing what.

Even is Langfield is better positioned and comes for it, he's going to be challenged for it by two strikers.

Joe is also beaten to the ball but the four Dons in front of him should have dealt with it by then so, although he still doesn't cover himself in glory, he's the least responsible in this instance.

PitchMick2013
27-01-2014, 01:12 PM
Instead of partaking in some goalkeeping - the art of trying to keep the ball out of the net with your hands, Langfield simply falls on his @rse.

Aye, Reynolds could have done better on the left and aye, Anderson could have done better in the middle, but that's nae the point.

I'm nae comparing Langfield to Anderson or Reynolds. I'm talking specifically about Langfield's part in the goal, which was a shambles, as usual.

Girniedon
27-01-2014, 01:17 PM
Quite sure that if Langfield went for it he would have been severely clattered.
Nothing to be gained by this postmortem. If he was at fault, and I'm not saying he was, it was offset by the excellent save in the first half.

Be happy with the performance and the point.

TheRealSLYFOX
27-01-2014, 02:42 PM
Any ball across the face of the goal 4 yards out should be the keepers ball. Anderson clearly stopped and after the goal was holding out his arm as if upset about something. Did Langfield shout for the ball then not come for it?

As for saying he would have been clattered. WTF? That's part of his job (see Leighton J, last ever game for The Dons)

Arctic_Flunky
27-01-2014, 02:52 PM
I personally reckon it's Anderson to blame, though Langfield doesn't look good in all of it.

A fairly slow paced ball played from right out on the wing into the six yard box. The centre backs chasing back into the box with the attackers. It's fairly clear there's a ball coming into the box from the winger.

The sensible thing for the defender to do is to move across infront of the attackers and block any ball along the ground. Anderson didn't do this for some reason.

OhioRed
27-01-2014, 02:57 PM
I can see both sides of the Langfield debate on this goal.

Yes, when the ball comes across, that close in and at that height, the keeper should get it. But in all honesty I doubt there are more than 2 or 3 keepers in the SPFL who would have got that.

Langfield doesn't have the kind of bottle to risk being injured by incoming players, never has had. He has good reactions and is reasonably agile, but has poor positional sense, and can't catch a ball to save his life.

He was never getting that ball yesterday, and the defence probably know that. They should not have allowed the cross in the first place.

So Langfield culpable? Yes, but no more than several other people.

I don't suppose we will, but it would be nice to find a brave keeper who can actually grab the ball instead of just fending it and hoping for the best.
