  1. 3 penalties, so 12 open play goals in 30 games, plus 6 assists. McCann has 6 goals, and 6 assists, in over 70 career games.
  2. Turnbull, aged 19, scored 15 goals in 30 league games, and also got 6 assists. The highest goal involvement for a teenage midfielder for about 20 years. Those who know what they're looking for will value McCanns strengths, I can see more English clubs being interested than him than Turnbull. Issue is English clubs seem to prefer low initial fees, with big sell on clauses, while Celtic prefer to do it the opposite way.
  3. 2023 his deal is, so realistically we've got until the end of next season to sell him. We won't match Turnbulls fee. We all have bias towards McCann, but goals sell players and Turnbulls goal record was absolutely elite for a CM. If we can make a deal that sees us eventually break the £1.8m record, I reckon I'll be happy.
  4. The players had gone about 6 months without a game, of course the tempo would be lower. PPDA is a metric that effectively measures how hard teams press. The average in the league this season is lower than than last seasons "worst" side...
  5. O'Halloran won't be up front regardless in this game, because if he does we don't have enough players elsewhere. He's either at right wing back, or he's on the right of a midfield 4. Wotherspoon is our most creative attacker, is scoring, and creating. He won't be dumped to wing back because O'Halloran played sort of all right for one game.
  6. I like Tanser but talk about the Old Firm/EFL Championship is absolute fantasy, so file me in the "his agent is at it" folder.
  7. First goal he matches McGinn, then inexplicably stops tracking him when the ball deflects loose. Same issue as against Motherwell, wheres he unable to get goalside of the player he's tracking.
  8. He's been the worst performing striker this season.
  9. It got deflected by Clark, I think. First goal is on Gordon, who follows his striker into midfield unnecessarily and leaves a massive gap behind him, where they score from. Wotherspoon sleeping a bit for the second. Not sure why Tanser is being criticised at all.
  10. I imagine its done so the PPV crowd would be as high as possible. There's absolutely no point playing the game at 2 if your income is going to be cut by two thirds.
  11. This kicks off at 7, for anyone who doesn't realise that. It's not really been made clear by either club.
  12. Did they not sell season tickets with the promise that it would be the first "insert how many fans are allowed" season ticket holders who would get in.
  13. Its not, at all. Its frankly moronic to be comparing Saints strikers, who maybe get 2 shots a match, to a Celtic striker who's getting 5 or 6, on "goals per minute". If that were the case then every striker we've ever had is absolutely shit and not good enough.
  14. Ajeti hasn't played enough minutes yet to fairly judge, and in any case he cost Celtic £5m. Comparing him to May is absolutely pointless. 2 of Clark goals are penalties. He averages a goal every every 330 minutes without them. Nisbet also scored 2 penalties. He scores a goal every 190 minutes. May scores a goal every 201 minutes. You can either accept you were talking shite and understand May is scoring regularly compared to the league, or you continue claiming he's shite because a striker who's combined fees over the past 3 years is £13m is better/continue claiming players scoring at a worse rate are better, because their team wins more penalties. Up to you.
  15. He's scoring a goal every 200 minutes, if you take out penalties i think only Kevin Nisbet is hitting the net more regularly in terms of strikers who have played over 600 minutes.
  16. I'll be watching on a stream, don't trust Premier Sports after reading reviews lately. Maybe being silly. HesGoal the first place I'll check.

    Doing PPV costs us money, we've no fans and the uptake of PPV has been disappointing, and financial cuts are inevitable. There you go. Steve Brown's thoughts in a nutshell.

    I think we'll come out the other side better than most, due to having actual reserves and low expenses, but I also think we'll stay at our current spending level for a couple of years after, while everyone else will return to "normal" spending straight away.

    Uniteds "wages to turnover" was 133% in 2018/19, and a loss of over £3m. They then made Shankland one of the highest paid non-OF players in the country. They then gave new signings Edwards £3k a week, and Fuchs/McNulty £5k a week this Summer, as they'd budgeted for normal crowds being back by now I don't think being in a better state than them financially is particularly incredible tbh. I'm sure there were rumours Saints, fairly forcibly, either cut the wages, or get rid of all together, many members of non-footballing staff at the club, but that was just rumoured.
  20. Well he's been a regular starter throughout his entire time there, and only dropped out due to injury lately, so I'd be amazed if they loaned out a regular starter they paid 5 figures for this year.
  21. Was maybe worried United still had Shankland/McNulty on the park, and had gone more attacking in the last 10 against Aberdeen the week before. We couldn't really afford another dominant home performance and 0 points. Not a great point of view but understandable this early in the season.
  22. Felt like Wotherspoon wanted to create the perfect goal, but ended up doing too much. Think the system didn't help as Uniteds back 5 stunted the front three getting space, and our CM 2 were outmatched too. So no free players in the opposition third. Change of shape was maybe needed but its easy to see that looking back.

    Be worth mentioning how many shots he actually faced in those games... Either way, I'd still prefer him to Parish.

    I think its based on xG and averages over the past couple of seasons. So if the average keeper is saving chances worth 0.16, but Clark isn't, then he gets deducted points. I think.
