    I think they’re good midfielders but I’m really not sure I’d describe either as “quality”.
    They’re both well above average in SPFL terms. I’d say both could comfortably play at English Championship level - Joe already has.

    Not really one of our biggest problem areas to be fair.

    Boyle aside, our whole team is championship at best. Boyle will be sold in January and not replaced.

    Newell is a terrific player imo. A massive upgrade on Dylsn. JDH is a very good player also. Those two with MacGennis could be awesome with a strong defence and attack.


    In fact imo both JDH and Newell are too good footballers to sit as deep as they do at present . Both have the talent to play a more progressive & attacking midfield role.

    The Dylan who played for Hibs is on another level to Newell. Newell is decent enough but McGeough was absolutely brilliant his last 18 months at the club. He's obviously nowhere near to that standard these days though.

    I regularly defend Newell on here but I agree with this. Especially in a 3-5-2, he should be told to get in the box much more. We don't need him and JDH sitting quite so deep.

    But the main issue is Magennis and Murphy are always injured, 2 players who could comfortably play that attacking number 10 role. Dan Mackay is presumably injured too? And Doig has not been the attacking outlet this season, that he was last year. So we're totally reliant on Boyle to create something.

    That poster is a sad Jambo troll. Clear as day surprised they've not been punted yet.

    Individually, decent players who most teams would take. Collectively, I’m not sure.

    I don’t think we need three centre halves and two deep lying midfielders against Ross County. Chuck in the two wing backs who are unlikely to get you a goal. Campbell doesn’t look particularly creative either. Then you have Nisbet who looks incapable of scoring meaning that as always, you’re pinning your hopes on Boyle.

    Midfielders need to be showing a bit more intent going forward. Not looking for everyone to score 10 a season but they should be capable of chipping in with a goal here and there. It’d make a massive difference. None of them want to have a shot.

    You could argue that the balance isn't quite there but individually Newell and JDH are clearly very good footballers. We drop off massively after that. It says it all that Campbell & Allan are getting minutes.
