Cairney: That’s what happens when
« on: January 11, 2022, 10:25:22 PM »
Tom Cairney starts
Hopefully this run of games will wake Marco up to the fact

i assume you are playing down his value?
he made 94 passes of which 91 were accurate.
he made 6 key passes which led to goals or attempts at goal including the pass to wilson for the penalty. surprisingly he made the most tackles tieing with tete and robinson and had almost 10% of the games possession. if you watched it you could see how helpful he was in keeping up the pace of moves with quick accurate passing.
bear in mind though that reading weren't very good.

Rubbish.

Did Cairney start against Blackburn? Our midfield had more time on the ball last night than you could boil an egg! He was entitled to play well as were a few others.

v blackburn he did come on for the last 20 mins and we scored 3 more goals and he had one assist and if i remember correctly he played very well.
i think he was poor v bristol city and sheff utd. but he wasnt alone. you say we had more time on the ball well i was amazed at how little time he had on the ball due to releasing it quickly. i thought most of the team played very well last night after a dodgy first half.

but can i apologise on his behalf for playing well last night.

Let's not kid ourselves, Reading very poor. It doesn't help that Scott Dann went off after 10(???) Minutes. Although not the quickest he does bring leadership and solid defensive game.

Fulham made Reading look poor. The absence of matches allowed the team to improve on tactics and attacking play. Don't look a gift-horse in the mouth.

The fact of the matter is we don’t really have a like for like alternative so he will start the next game.

Besides that, he still has a lot to offer us this season and can be a good asset for us. I’m happy he’s playing well as everyone should be

We need a squad of class players, then the coach should play whoever is in form.

picking the starting line up can be hard for the manager. i always remember Dalglish saying if he picked the newcastle side on how they trained, shearer wouldnt even get on the bench. but he was always the first name on the sheet.
form is key. imho.

A lot of us have a strong admiration for Cairney and hope  that his knee problem is over and that we will see him get better and better in the team over the rest of the season. Looking forward to his next goal scored from outside the penalty are with his sweet left foot.
