Ryan Edwards scores v Hamilton Academical 21.04.2018

Recommended Posts

On the basis that at least 50% probably get nowhere near the goal, we still sit in the stands and urge a player near the edge of the box to shoot, instead of committing yet another ineffective cross-field pass.

Today Skippy just blasted one and look what happened!

More shooting, please, Jags..............

When you see a replay of the goal from behind the goal Erskine is lying on the goal line.Did we get a bit of long overdue luck that offside was not given?

Luck would have had nothing to do with it. The A/R would have clearly seen that he didn't interfere with the play or opponents. The only way offside would have been given would have been if he'd touched the ball.

Just like the goal we had chalked off a few weeks ago?

Erskine was behind every Accies player, you can’t interfere in that position unless you try to block their movement somehow.

The other week Storey was in front of the keeper which gave the referee a decision to make.

They are 2 very different scenarios.

I liked the way he put his hands behind his head, like he was sunbathing, like he knew he was in an offside position but just wanted to say, "I'm chilling out here, not getting involved, don't mind me".

Agree that he was never interfering, therefore not offside, but I suppose you could say we're lucky that the officials didn't mess it up.

I do think we were lucky with the first half penalty shout, and in that case the referee would have had a decision on the card for Cerny. I don't think we could have had too many complaints with a penalty and a yellow in that case.

The thing I liked the most was that the players all ran over to the bench to celebrate with Archie. There is clearly a unity between the players and manager which gives me hope that we can dig ourselves out of this

Exactly what I was thinking Scotty.
