    Just thought he was quite poor tonight in general albeit had a better 2nd half. Not sure if he was asked by Lennon to float in first half but was barely near any of their players to attempt to win the ball back nor did he seem to mark anyone.

    Was a massive opportunity for him tonight with mcginn gone, although it would be a massive ask for him to be on the same level as SJM, but don't think he grabbed the opportunity at all.
    Problem is we donít know what he was asked to do. As far as I saw it in the first half, Bartley and Slivka dropped deeper and regularly took positions that shielded the 3 CBs. They worked closely with the CBs to pass their markers on to them (good communication). Mallan contributed more to the high press with Boyle, Kamberi, Gray and Stevenson. I have no idea what Slivka was told but for large spells of the first half, it certainly looked like Mallan was told to contribute to the press. Slivka joined in a few times now and then.

    We will change our play style, we wonít get a McGinn, nobody will take the opportunity to replace McGinn. We need to have some patience with these players, the core of our midfield has been decimated this summer and players will need to step up. They need to get used to each otherís games though and that takes time. Itíll be the same when Efe, Hanlon and McGregor are gone. Partnerships and understanding will start from scratch as the new players come in.

    Such a contrast of opinions on here, thought porteous & ambrose were superb.

    Thought slivka was like a rabbit in headlights in the first half didn't know where to stand when to go when to drop back who to mark. He improved slightly in the 2nd half but he's definitely no replacement for mcginn for me.
    Whereas first half I thought Slivka was composed on the ball, didnít miss a pass and was driving forward whenever we had the ball getting into dangerous positions. 2nd half I thought he tired around 60/65.

    I donít think he is ever going to be an outstanding defensive midfielder but I really like what he brings to the team. Bartley gave him and Mallan a bit more freedom.

    If Oli had teed him up near the end he could have been the hero tonight!

    No failures tonight for me. Kamberi was subdued by his standards but he was up against real quality and wasn't fully fit IMO.

    I think Slivka's qualities are obvious, not really sure what people can't see. Granted he hasn't had a truly outstanding 90 minutes yet, but I think he'll be a big player for us.

    Porteous was excellent, got done by the boy a couple of times but gave him plenty too. The fact that the boy got the shepherd's crook says a lot about his performance.

    Efe was awesome. Mallan is such a huge threat and it's a joy watching his technique as he spreads play about.

    Really enjoyed the game tonight, was a great contest against quality opposition.
    Pretty much how I saw it.

    Just reading through this and seeing people have a go at Slivka. I thought he was great first half, but like the Tripolis 2nd leg, tired a little bit in the second. Good performance all around, however not too surprised to see negative comments as Slivka seems to get the brunt of most them at the moment.

    Good contest, thought we just about shaded it and were especially unlucky with a couple of chances. Nothing to fear from the away leg. GGTTH

    We were unlucky not to win tonight. Small margins in Mallanís strike, Grayís header, and Emersonís chance at the end, going in or not.

    Think we have got a lot wiser in how to approach different games and manage them. We played a great team in a calm and controlled way. We werenít naive going chasing things and leaving ourselves exposed. Again, we were organised at the back and weathered everything that came our way and looked dangerous going forward. On Sunday we essentially closed the game down after going 3 up as well. Lennon has us playing very astutely.

    In previous years Iíd be convinced that this tie was over and that weíd never win over in Norway, but things are different with this team.
    we played a very good side, who are probably well into their season ? the Skandic leagues are usually a good bit in front, in that sense. I was a bit worried at times, with their possession and slick passing around the 18 yard box in the first half and the wee pony tail guy was a box o' tricks. our back line did well to deal with it, although Hanlon's attempted long ball pass is shocking at times. Mallan's couple of attempts, Boyle's too and the header from SDG were all quuite unlucky as their goalie made great saves. Abit disappointed, but not undonted. we can still get through as I think we can score over there. Kamberi though looked a bit off the pace although he did not have great service.

    Learning to play without Mcginn will not happen overnight.

    Slivka definitely worth persevering with and I think we need to be patient. I think the issue with him (and Swanson to a degree) is that they are trying to make a match winning contribution every time they get the ball. They seem rushed and lack composure.

    Getting more game time will helpfully increase his confidence.

    Thought Slivka started quite well. But he has a tendency to go missing a bit for me. Keep saying there is a player in there but he really needs to step up and start showing it now.

    Thought they were very comfortable on the ball but never had any bite about them. Though Sir David had scored with the header and when was the last time we had a shot hit the bar then go in.
    They'll be a different team at home. The sat deep last night and hoped for a counter attack that didn't work out for them. They'll come at us over there.

    From what i read in the build up to this match they love to play counter attacking football all the time and that's the only way they know how to play. I think that also partly explains how we set up last night and didn't over commit players forward.

    I think that was why we stood of them a bit at times. They were comfortable bringing the ball out from the back. If weíd pressed too much theyíd just have popped it round us. Itís a bit frustrating to watch because you naturally want the players to get after them but sometimes you just canít. The way we played prevented them from having a single shot on target.

    I donít think itíll be much different next week. A goal either way might be enough. Thankfully we have the draw as well.
