If Scotland's style of play were similar to Celtic's I'd be in total agreement.  But would Christie be of any use with Clarke's **route 1 hoofball tactics?**

That’s really what annoys me with Clarke. I fully believe we have outfield players to play better than that, but we’ve been playing like Kilmarnock, I was hoping Clarke would adapt but it just isn’t great to see. 
 

By no means am I seeing we’re world beaters, but we have good players who’s ability’s will never be utilised with those tactics.

And now on the Redcafe he's the worst player ever to play for Manchester United. :P

This is his first season as a regular, so he'll have his up and downs. I wish he had senior players that he could look at for inspiration, but when the senior players are as hopeless as Young, Lingard, etc, what hope does he have?

5/10 today.

Lingard has to be the only footballer ever to still be called a promising player when he is about to turn 27.

:lol: I know.

He's the Peter Pan of football, probably because he's never really developed.

Having gotten around to seeing the highlights of the Norwich v Man U last night, the goal McTominay costs his side really, really annoyed me. 

I think he's already one of our best players and should be starting (when not suspended for daft bookings) but my god, that goal... fair enough you get caught on the ball, it happens, but I don't care if the game is done, you're at fault, your team is in danger, you burst your arse to hare after the guy. He just jogs back, casually, staying behind the Norwich player. Doesn't even put in a sprint. Was like Charlie Adam in Wales. 

Really does my tits in, that. 

I know it is a bit harsh, given he has been their best performing player for awhile now and had a good game by all accounts (took his goal really well) but that sort of thing in a player worries me. 

Just got a flashback of Adams in Wales now. 

*shudders*

In fairness Adam could have had access to a skateboard and still not caught Bale.

Doubtful with an ankle injury.

It actually looked quite bad. He was reaching and he seemed to pull up and get caught.

He tried to play on, but he ended up on the turf. He ended up limping down the tunnel.

Might be out of commission for a couple of weeks.

If he manages to get back for the weekend should be fine, but already being called a doubt. 

Unfortunate if he misses out. Been feeling like he'd get a goal for us soon. What a reaction that'd get from the support.

You can tell from his face, when he was on the ground, he was in loads of pain. It was more of a muscle injury than an in impactful one.

He went over on his ankle.

Knowing injuries like that personally, he may be able to heal in time for Sunday, if he does, he'll probably meet up with our squad

Fingers crossed he makes it right enough then. Aye if he makes the weekend he'll be fine so that's what to look for.

.. Unless he's unfortunate enough to exacerbate it, I guess. 

They are welcome to give him a wee rest to ensure he's fresh, though, I'll no complain ;)

Initially he tried to walk/run it off for about five minutes, as he's a tough lad and he just wants to play, but he just couldn't. I hope he misses the Brighton match.

OGS is over playing him. He's starting in the league, cup matches and in Europe. God know how bad the United midfield will be in absence.

Suppose he is trying to get as much momentum as possible and so is leaning on his consistent and trustworthy performers to try and arrest the slide they'd been on, I also quite like that somebody in down there is taking their league cup seriously, but aye he's over exerting him and others. 

I can understand the temptation to keep playing; as you say, his absence will be notable.

I was thinking that.

I think it'll be alright. Celtic played Tierney pretty much non-stop from the age of what, 19? McTominay is 22, so it's definitely different in this case. 

At this stage in McTominay's career, the more matches he gets under his belt, the better. Tierney's case was crazy, Celtic completely over-worked him and relied too much from him, even though, obviously they didn't need to. They could've unretired Tom Boyd for the previous 3 years and they still would've won the SPL.
