Here's our team

 

Fon Williams

-----

Meekings

Warren

Devine

Tremarco

------

Tansey

Draper

Vigurs

Polworth

--------

Storey

Hughes

 

Bench - Esson, Ryan Williams, Foran, Roberts, Wedderburn, Horner, Danny Williams.

 

 

It could be that Storey plays wide rather than up front with Hughes or he plays off him so it's 4-4-1-1.

 

Things I don't like about that team

 

1) Danny Devine is starting.  He has cost us goals again and again this season, as we saw in midweek.  Our best centre back pairing is Meekings and Warren we should play those two.  in addition we are playing Meekings out of position to accomodate Devine.  We have Horner on the bench who has done OK at right back but more importantly he IS a right-back.

 

2) I think Jordan Roberts needs to be starting - he is strong and direct and has pace, all qualities we have been missing in attack.  He hasn't done much that I've seen but always seems first to be subbed and now dropped from the XI.  Hughes has done OK but we're going to be under pressure today and will probably have to play on the counter - Roberts would be much better for that.

 

3) He might not be fit but if we want to play with a targetman, start with Richie Foran.  He's a talisman and will work hard as well.

 

4) Lack of width in the midfield.  We might be playing on the counter and keeping our shape compact but having Vigurs and Polworth as the widest midfield players doesn't give us a lot of options.  If we are starting with a big man up front then having good attacking options wide is useful but we don't really have that with this XI.

Good enough team, they will make chances BUT can we take them ?

Foran,  Roberts and Horner could well be on hand to make sure there is a change of tactics in the second half.

Great start, and was glad to see Celtic score and absolute screamer in the last minute at Killi. Keep this up and we can breath a little easier

I thought the same lightwelter. Stunning halftime scoreline, leaves County a lot of work to do let's just hope we don't do any of it for them.

I was starting to think we needed the goals enlarged as most shots recently have been best described as narrowly missing the target.

All is forgiven today as everyone seems to have found their shooting boots.

A draw today would have been a decent result for us away to County, any sort of win would have been absolutely superb, but 3-0? That's in the category of "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"

Can I propose the match report headline:

"Caley Jags reign on County's parade"  :laugh::ictscarf:

I can only say that the players must have looked at all the negative posts on this site and gave us the best reply possible. Great result and game stats look impressive.
