He wasn't at the races today but let's give the boy a ****ing chance.
This thread was utterly predictable, sadly.
Very predictable thread. I said to the wife during it that there's be a thread on here writing Gow off as a player.
As well as not playing well whe the ball did come his way I think he suffered from the lack of ball that did go his way - in much the same way that Riordan has hardly had a touch recently. We don't get the ball out to the left hand side for some reason.
I think Yogi was looking for a wee bit more on the application/pace side up front today which is why he went with Gow in favour of Deeks - he looked a bit rusty though and I can see the argument that he could have been subbed a bit earlier.
He wasn't that bad and all this about Yogi being out of his depth is nonsense IMO too.
We played some great stuff first half and der Hun weren't in the game. Second half Laferty (as pish as he is) made a difference for them and they started taking the game to us. Sadly the whole team drifted out the match at this point, not just Gow and certainly not on account of Yogi's tactics.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"
think Yogi was trying a bit of psychology with Gow, giving him the chance to show the Huns what they were missing. that backfired tbh, and i think this one was 5-6 weeks of regular football too soon for him.
personally i don't think we should take too much from his performance today
Guilty as charged - I was fuming watching him today, not purely because he had a poor game, but because I was delighted when we signed him and was very disappointed by how he played today - I expected so much more.
Given time to build up his fitness and re-adjust to life in the SPL, I think he'll do more good than bad over the course of the season, as lets face it, he has a chance to land a permanant move if he impresses. Perhaps just a wee bit too soon for a starting berth.
I see nothing in your eyes. And the more I see, the less I like...
