Mike's Moan: Mad Vlad Will Be Looking For A Reaction
Updated Saturday, 16th September 2006
There will be a lot of pressure on Hearts at the weekend to put in a good performance and get a comfortable win as Romanov will be looking for blood after their past few results. This could play into our hands, alternatively, they could stuff us!
Hearts' style of play will suit us .They will come on to us, try to play football, and be on the attack every opportunity. If we can keep our concentration at the back, cut out the mistakes, we might have a wee chance of hitting them on the break and taking something from this game.
It is a long shot I know but the Hearts players will be under a lot of pressure and if they don't get an early goal, or even go behind, it would be interesting to see their reaction. They have been struggling for goals in a lot of their games, and Bednar is suspended, so if they keep on missing you just never know?!
The team for Sunday should virtually pick itself. It has to be the same back four that finished the ICT game as we have no alternative, anyone for McBride in midfield (apart from Fagan), and Skippy and McCormack up front. I know their will be calls for Clarkson to play, but for me he just misses too many chances.
I have been trying my best to give Malpas the benefit of the doubt, but he has one decision to make on Sunday that is a must. Every Motherwell fan knows what it is, and if he fails to make it I fear for his future. A drunk
PLEASE, NO MISTAKES!!!
