First Team Debuts

Milestones

Caley Thistle travelled to Tynecastle off the back of 2 victories and some much improved performances.

Unfortunately, this game turned out to be a pretty drab affair that had 0-0 written all over it until Hearts youngster Gary Glen played a nice one-two before slotting the ball away on the 80th minute. Caley Thistle stay in 9th spot and now wait for the visit of Gretna on Saturday.

Immortal Howden Ender has this Starometer for us. He's no a happy bunny.

Fraser **** Looked very assured today and saved us from a much bigger defeat - Impressed - MOM

Rosscoe ** Real Jekyll and Hyde performance

Proctor ** Despite what the eejit Brewster may think - he proved today that he is not a central defender.

Hastings ** If only Caley 100 was here - he would have been crucified - Sturdy enuff defensively but hoof hoof hoof.

McBain - ***: Looked good in the first half but went a bit Invisible in the second - but that is Ok at left back - Worth a run here as I had strenuously advocated.

Bazza - ** Struggled - why is he playing him from the start - he is a half hour man away from home :029:

Cowie ** can someone tell me where he was supposed to be playing. Brewster is totally wasting him.

Duncan ***: Excellent defensively until he is forced to pass !!! :029:

Imrie *** Played his heart out but still looks like an SFL player in the SPL.

Wyness * Bye Bye Denzil - why did you last so long today - ANSWER - Brewster humiliation.

Niculae ** Usual totally ineffective away performance.

I am NOT going to say anything about the subs

BREWSTER was totally INEPT tactically - we went 4-4-2 when it was crying out for a 4-5-1. :018: :018: :018:

He played Marius as the hole and Wyness and Bayne as the front men - FECKIN RIDICULOUS. What a feckin waste - Marius played a few good touches but did bugger all :023: :023:

Brew actually appeared to be taunting Black - The game totally cried out for his introduction. Brew is an arrogant power mad .......... censored :laugh:
