Interestd to know if Todd played as an central AM tonight.

Always thought he's best at AM or wide. Not a central midfielder. Think he's suited to making runs into the box or bombing down the wings. Not so good at putting his foot on the ball and picking passes.

Todd's biggest assets are his movement and his work-rate, tonight he was central, playing ahead of Chalmers and Hamilton, which suits his game, he can also do a job at right back/right wing back as well because that also gives him space to bomb forward. With those two behind him, he has more licence to burst forward and the balance of the team overall looked good, Wighton was also able to drop deeper because Todorov was keeping the centre backs busy, both wing backs were flying forward to good effect as well. 4-0 at half time was a fair reflection of the performance, it was excellent. 

What Matty did tonight was also hit two great finishes, as McPake mentions, if he is to be an attacking midfielder, improving his finishing is key for him.

Thanks for that. Was working and hoped it would be on the radio so had to listen to Argentina game instead.

Still not great, though unbeaten, at home but we’re maybe scoring a greater variety of goals. Perhaps McPake letting them off the leash a bit after getting them drilled in doing the ugly stuff well. These long runs and cutbacks were such a big part of our success in our last season down here. It was this period in that season where we turned the screw and left everyone for dead.

Hearing several Championship and League of Ireland clubs are in for Mochrie. Maybe its time for him to try his hand at a higher level

Certainly got the ability to play championship.  He's needs to work harder though. Does absolutley nothing if not in possession of the ball. I think we could push Todd further up the park to replace him, Todd is a bigger goal threat than Mochrie or we move Hosler into that role, so he's not irreplaceable.

Arab r us posts allot about Mochrie so I'd imagine his information is about as ITK as it gets. 

 

If I'm being brutally honest, I'm not sure I'd have Mochrie in my starting eleven. He's got fantastic natural talent with the ball at his feet but there's more to football than that.
