    Few notable things from last night.

    Was impossible for the wing backs.

    - I'm almost certain that Mcginn or Stevenson didn't once attempt to make an overlapping run to create a bit of space for Doig/Cadden. Obviously a tactical choice by Maloney. Given that were were just recycling the ball between left and right it was a huge issue all night.

    - Small thing but Cadden/Doig taking throw ins instead of McGinn/Stevenson. Again, made it hard for the wing backs to get any sort of territory.

    - Wind made it hard to switch the ball from left the right quickly.

    - Campbell/Mueller had a torrid time recieving the ball with their back to goal. Only niSbet long ked capable or recieving the ball but the ball was rarely on for aforementioned reasons.

    All in all this game was a direct result of the way we set out to play the game. Find it hard to blame the players when we were so conservative tactically.

    Hopefully we learn and move on.

    Rocky motm followed by Newell.
    Mcginn and Stevenson were playing as part of the back 3, not wing backs. Cadden and Doig were the wing backs

    Exactly. McGinn and Lewis were never expected to get forward.

    Obviously.

    but it's fairly standard that the left and right hand side of the three need to have that attacking element.

    See Tierney/Robertson for Scotland.

    I'm not saying they need to be Roberto Carlos but there needed to be an outlet

    Any top side who plays the 3-4-3 does this to an extent because the midfield to can cover.

    Hanlon used to made underlapping runs when Lennon had us play 3 at the back. Great to see.

    Aye, and Porteous has it in his locker too. The spare man is often in that back three so we really need hanlon Porteous back - really underrated distribution.

    Hanlon Rocky and Porteous is suddenly a tasty back 3 with Cadden/Mitchell on the wings
