 Thistle vs DAFC
Topic Originator: Berry  
Date:   Sat 10 Jul 09:19

Well here we are, first competitive game of the season, the first one for Peter Grant with us.

A lots been said about us not having a complete squad yet with a large number of players still required, will this show today.

Predictions?

Genuinely does anyone have a squad we can pick?

OFW

Comrie
Watson
Vitas
Graham
Edwards

Allan
Pybus

Thomas

Wighton
O'Hara

Subs-
MacDonald, Todorov, McCann, Todd, Fenton

Am I missing anyone?
In that formation it'd be a 532, Pybus and Allan in the middle with Dom being a floating attacking midfielder.

Mehmet as sub goalie presumably (or maybe the other way round!)

I wonder what stage Dow and Martin are at in gaining match fitness? Reading PG`s interviews on COWS gives us no clues as to who is available for selection. He`s not lost for words though!

Ian Wilson is also missing from Grant`s selection above at 09:29. Does anyone know if he has featured in the pre-season games?

thats what i expect the line up to be Grant but more a 3-4-3 with the front 3 drifting all over the place, should see lots of rotation from players and moving into positions to cover when others go forward.

Wilson not involved in games yet, Lewis Martin is back training, not sure on exact status for Dow.

Confident for todays game.... not really but if we compete, show signs of change to play the way PG wants us to go, i would be reasonable satisfied, would take a draw this now and bonus to win on pens.

Think it’s a bit early for us going to take a few games and more signings to get competitive. Thinking 2-1 or 3-1 Partick. Bookies have Partick as slight favourites as well

Hadn't seen any mention of him in preseason Eck so left him out.

I thought I'd put Mehmet in but apparently not! Not sure who'll be first choice between him and OFW.

With us being out numbered in centre mid we're not really building upto moves, we'll pass it around a bit before yeeting it long but it's pretty grim watching, Thistle are finding all the space in the world in between our defence and midfield.

Ball upto Todorov who won the flick on, O'Hara took a good touch before releasing Todorov at the right moment to run in on goal, a very good finish where he was shaping up to place it at the far post before banging it on the bottom corner of the near post. Very good and composed finish.

2-1! Not sure where this has came from, we were awful for the first 25 minutes.

Bell took a professional foul on Dom Thomas, about 35 yards from goal, he puts a flat delivery to the back post where Comrie has a free header into the bottom corner, there was about 3 pars players at the back post compared to 1 Thistle player.

I don't want to take away from our goals, but it was awful defending from Thistle for that second one in particular!

Just a question of taking our chances and the confidence grows. Was signs early of the passing and movement, it just wasn't coming off but you score and everything falls into place and the confidence grows thru the whole team.

Mistakes being made but 1st game of season at end of the day.

Plus points ➕

-Ross Graham has a good turn of pace and does well at bringing the ball out of defence, all of our attacks coming from the left hand side

-We're winning!

-Mehmet has made a couple of very good saves, looks like a good keeper on the limited viewing

-O'Hara has looked sharp.

-After a pretty bad first 25 minutes we started to knock the ball about and turned the game a bit. May sound basic but we're getting men forward at the right times, all three goals came from us having an overload of men in the correct area of the park, poor from Thistle defensively, or great from us going forward?

Negative

-I'm not sure this shape works defensively for us, the Thistle goal came from something that had happened throughout the half, a player dropping into the space behind our midfield and in front of the centre backs, it is a problem with the 523.

He was absolutely correct at that point though...

As bizarre as it may sound we've been bad for more in that half than good... It's not an exaggeration to say Thistle could have scored 3 or 4, but they didn't take there chances. For the first half hour though they were controlling the game, looked incredibly dangerous going forward and were doing better than us all over the park, our goal changed the game.

I don't think we've had a chance outside our goals, it might be the most clinical I've ever seen the Pars!

While it may not be his natural position Dom Thomas has put in a power of work in the middle, he's outnumbered but he's don't his best to get on the ball and has tracked his runners going back.

What a delightful finish! High line from Thistle is spotted by Dom Thomas who chips the ball through to Todorov, with the ball still bouncing he just chips it over the keeper, fantastic.

Lovely ball from Paul Allan over the top for Todorov to run thru and lob the goalie to make it 4. Well onside there.

You have to take into consideration where both teams are in their preparation for the season. Both teams still needing players in.

For us, considering PG mentioned he’s hoping for a few more names, we’re playing a different style of football and formation with a team that’s still getting to know each other.

Todorov on his debut has scored a double and we’ve scored 4 goals away from home to Partick Thistle.

A lot of positives today.

McCall pre match said at best 1 more to come in whereas we have publicly said another 5.

Think we’ll improve vastly with new signings and injured players back involved. Wilson, Dow, Martin all important and not fit.

I think it's the midfield rather than the defence tbf, as you'd expect there's not much protection with this system.

Well we didnt see that coming thats for sure !!

OK some errors and things to work on but 1st game of the season, and when things come off for us they really come off and we look like a real threat in the last 3rd.

Big difference with the formation for going forward is when we win the ball in midfield, we already have 2 if not 3 ahead of the ball.

Thought Paul Allan was excellent in the middle of the park, Dom as well really put a shift in and covered the ground well.

Early days but like the look of Ross Graham at the back giving us the balance, O`Hara showing up a lot of the posts in the last year from people on here!!

Aaron`s gonna have some competition to play on the right side if Kyle can play like that every week, but Aaron`s burst of pace will help him if he goes in at right centre back in the 3.

Very pleased with that today, great start to the competitive season, signs of the managers methods clear to see, and with likes of Dow, Wilson, Martin all to come back into the selection with the signings that will come, think Pars fans should be very pleased and optimistic tonight.

What a mad game. Before it started, I wasn`t expecting too much given we`re obviously still a bit short of having a final squad and so being the weaker side early in the game wasn`t a surprise. We were just never in it and getting an absolute hammering. No surprise when we went 1-0 down and Partick were probably a bit unlucky not to be 2 up.

Our equaliser totally changed the game. First serious move up the park all game, hilarious defending with both dragged one way but a lovely ball into the space, and a well hit finish. I`m not sure what changed but somehow the game completely turned and we were totally dominant. The only thing I noticed was that our wide players were getting forward more, whereas early on they weren`t able to. Not sure if we changed deliberately or it was just that the game changing meant they didn`t need to be so deep.

4th goal was nice. Great ball to spot the space and such a good finish to dink it in. They got a bit of a lift when they got back to 4-2 but in truth we saw the game out without too much bother. Could maybe have been a bit better with the ball in that period at the end but it wasn`t really a problem.

I don`t think I`ve seen us set up as 5-2-3 before. Would have liked to be at the game to see what the forwards were doing and how they were doing at coming back to cover but it was difficult to see on the stream. Not sure we`ll see much more of it, quite likely it was more just a case of using what he had available, which is not very much in midfield for the time being.

I wouldn`t have been too upset if we`d lost today as these group games are somewhere between a friendly and a proper competitive fixture, but certainly some good things to come out of having played that game.

Think we will see 3-4-3 a lot this season tbh Socks.

The 1st goal for us lifts the whole team and the confidence u could see flows through the team. Real example of doing things well and you will get the rewards.

I`m not going to pretend I have the same analytical skills as Socks, but I thought I saw a bit of feedback from the style of counter-attacking teams at the Euros. I liked the way we played the ball around at the back until the opportunity came to attack, which we then did in numbers and at speed. Of course, maybe I`m deluded!

Early days, and while Mehmet made a couple of good saves he needs to spend the rest of the week practicing his clearances!

I have to say, I thought we would have no chance today with the lack of depth and the fact that Partick pretty much have a settled squad. I`m delighted I was wrong. The first 25minutes were worrying but we weathered the storm, scored a goal from nothing and took it from there. St. Mirren will be even more difficult on Tuesday and we will need to eliminate any mistakes or they will punish us.

Brilliant debut from Todorov and O`Hara put in so much effort. I was pleased for Paul Allan to have a solid start and hopefully he can kick on from here. We still need to sign another 5-6 players but to beat a team who should be aiming for the playoffs away from home is a big plus.
