The last two SPL games have seen us produce comfortable performances. One was a chore to watch the other was a majestic masterclass in movement, pace, skill and vision. The breakdown for both games unsurprisingly shows us well on top (apart from the school boy error with the corners on the Motherwell fact file).
As we look to Europe, the possession game becomes important. Domestically we have been dominate in this part of the game with only the games against Aberdeen & St Johnstone showing us as failing to win the possession war.
A look at the games against Ross County & Hibs show that being on top doesn’t mean the result automatically goes your way. Against Moscow we won’t have the ball as much as we would like. We need them to have meaningless possession and us to make ours count.
Kris Commons was immense on Saturday. He has been most of this season. Averaging a remarkable 4.2 shots per game, an assist every 210 mins and a goal every 216 mins he is showing all the form of player of the year. If he continues in the same I predict over 15 goals and over 12 assists for the man not good enough for Scotland.
