I think Thommo deserved his own thread today - often criticised but was excellent today in a tough game. Thoughts?

Certainly far from finished as has been suggested.

I was worried about his ability to last the 90 but played very well.. He's turned into a much needed signing and after today a candidate for a cup final starting slot..

Put himself in the picture for a start next week.

Still think it will, and should, be Bartley but he's put himself in contention. Was superb today.

Easily his best performance since coming back, thought he was our best player today.

McGregor was my MOTM again, he's performing wonderfully at the moment, but Thomson was great today. Showed he wouldn't be intimidated and probably finished with a few bruises.

Thomson was pure class. He played as well today as in his younger days.

As I said on another thread he did well today but tired and should have been subbed .
Should have tracked the goalscorer.

Well done KT.
Gave his all.
Didn't think he would last more than an hour.
Think he can play hard 3 games a month.
His matchtime needs to be carefully managed.

Amazing how a player can be 'often criticised' when he's only played 5/6 games and been decent in all but one.

Fact is, the next average game he has in he league you'll have the same folk making crass statements about him being 'finished'. His performance today and in the Hearts game PROVES to anyone with even half a brain that he has a lot to offer. His passes are beautifully weighted and he's far more creative than the know it all's who claim he slows the game down give him credit for. He can't get around the park like he used to but he's an excellent guy to have available to us.

I see no reason why he AND Bartley can't start for us next week?

He wouldn't of caught him hence the reason Lewis busted a gut to get back in.

A CH should of read the ball and closed the player down.

Played very well today and got stuck into their rough tactics, his problem may be that he's not able to play at that level week in week out.

I'm not usually his biggest fan but credit where it's due I thought he played well today. There was a 5 minute spell towards the end , maybe 75-80 where he looked like he was blowing out his erse but that was to be expected. Got to give him credit though as he kept going and wasn't struggling as much in the last few minutes as I thought he might be. His passing and composure on the ball throughout were very good today.

Seriously? McGregor got ripped early doors today but came into his own when we switched to a three after McGeough went off. Not MoTM but Thomson had a pretty sound and error free 90 mins.

I would like to see Bartley and Thommo in a 4 2 3 1 normal back 4 Bart and Thommo holding Hendo McGinn and Mcgough if fit with JC and Stokesy up front, thought he was good today.

That wouldn't be a 4231 then would it?

I thought McGregor was all over the shop for about the first 10 minutes. They started quite well and put us under a bit of pressure but McGregor looked rattled and was making mistake after mistake.

Fair play to McGregor though, he settled down and went on to put in a mighty shift.

Thommo was MOTM for me though. He's put in some big performances since he came back and he threw everything he had at that game today - again.

Agreed. I was saying McGregor wasn't MOTM because of the start but Tommo was as good a candidate as any. I don't think McGinn deserved it on today's performance although he was a bit more like the guy who's better than Zidane 😀

2 or 3 mistakes with the goal, Lewis should have tracked, centre back over committed and Thommo should have tracked the scorer. Really poor goal.

Thomson was in great form today and battled away all day with their midfield..

should start for next week, with Fyvie on the bench.

Thought Thomson was partly at fault for the goal myself. Just followed the ball as did mcgregor and nobody tracked mutombo. Other than that it was a neat and tidy performance on the ball and determined off it from kt.

Lewis did track back just forgot to challenge when he got there lol.

Thommo's passing was first rate all game. Thought he (not unlike the rest of the team tbh) tired quite sorely toward the end when it came to tracking back and following runs, but still managed to show his composure and ability on the ball. I think the illusion that all he does is play safe passes to the flanks and back four came simply from the poor football on display during his second stint. With players actually willing to take the ball to feet in front of him, Thomson is excelling as somewhat of a deep lying playmaker.

That's good you agree with yourself then.

Hopefully some more posters can come on and offer the same opinion as the point clearly needs reinforced.

Seemed to be a few players partly culpable for the goal from what I can see.

Thomson was running just in front of the scorer and kept going when the scorer checked his run and moved in to the box. Thommo should have been more aware of his movement

Winston Ingram

He was first class today. His use of the ball was excellent but he gave as good as he got against a very physical midfield.

3 players went to the ball in the corner, Thomson lets the boy run. It may not be his man to mark but he's running on his own and he should have seen the danger.

I thought McGinn was at fault for the goal. Thomson went to help Stevenson and McGinn stopped tracking back.
