Funny how Airdrie fans always think the ref's against them.
Must be a conspiracy.
That having been said, things are now getting interesting. Some crucial games coming up. At long last the manager seems to have sorted out the defence.
I wouldn't give Boyle all the credit for that. Grant Adam seems to have sorted out the defence, more like. The Back 4 are now playing their own game, instead of being worried what the clown behind them is going to do. They have a confidence in Adam that we haven#'t seen with any other goalkeeper this year, and that has allowed them to concentrate on their own jobs. The fact that MacDonald has alos come in, because of Stallards red card, has steadied the ship somewhat, or I think Boyle would still have been picking Stallard at centre half. Circumstances rather than good judgement, and managerial skill has found us the central defensive pairing we have been looking for all season. What has also helped is the signing of a proper right back. Mcneil just seems tio know when to stay and when to go, and I think him and Bain seem to work the right flank well, as a team.
While any team in the Division would have Jamie Stevenson starting every week, barring injury, I think that Lynch and Stallard work well together. I think Stallard is now showing what he is capable of, having moved forward. Again, I would say, more circumstancial than good judgement, due to Stevenson being injured.
All in all, a fairly comfortable win, with us also missing a penalty, and Donnelly chipping the keeper, but hitting the bar. Got to be happy with current form, and it will be interesting to see what Boyle does next week in the absence of Lynch.
