We disagreed about how he played against Motherwell in that role. I thought his hold up play was fine, that he overall played very well and I was looking forward to seeing him kick on.
You'd pointed out that his hold up play was poor so I've been watching closely ever since - and it has been dire. Instead of kicking on, he looks like he's gone backwards.
This is one of our greatest failings as a team right now, the amount of times our play breaks down in that position.
I've gone from defending him to being one of his biggest critics. He'll probably fancy it on Wednesday but as nuts as it sounds I think I'd be dropping him even without there being any alternative. I'm sure we could cobble together some sort of strike partnership between Boyle and Murphy or the like that wouldn't mean we have to tolerate effectively being a man down with Nisbet on the park.
