    Probably more "Aye, yer a fe**in' wee magic c**t" judging by my time staying up in Glasgow

    Tierney is a classic 442 full back who needs someone near him to combine with. Not skillful enough for WB, and not big enough for CB.
    Though a large part of the issue to day was him getting the ball with no teammate within 20 yards of him because our cack CB's need baby sitting the whole time

    Tierney is at his attacking best with quick inter changing football. Him being stuck out wide and isolated means he can only run the line. While that's fine in some games it wasnt today.

    We either switch to a back 4 or switch him for Kolasnic in the 3.

    Not a great game but not entirely his fault. Agree with everyone who says he’s a classic 4-4-2/4-5-1 lb who thrives off overlapping.

    The way our fullbacks are playing is very frustrating. Must be on instruction or is it just me? They tend to join midfield instead of bombing forward and combining with our “wingers”.

    Product of an imbalanced squad.

    There Many time today he refused to cross the ball and i find it frustrating because he has good delivery

    Bit too robotic at times. Loves to run the ball out of play and needs to look up more. Often he just whips the crosses in when there’s no one even in the 18 yard box.

    Saw a few times when he got space and there was nobody in there and he was getting annoyed. He whipped in enough perfect balls to kill the game.

    He was solid enough but has little to work with and a liability called Kola behind him.

    Hmmm he either dribbled the ball out of play or passed back to our defenders. Was hesitant to cross and when he did cross there was nobody in the box.
    Got outmuscled a few times as well, not to mention complete mismatch for the 2nd goal.

    Was a bit rigid going forward and he doesn’t look up when dribbling, that will need to get coached out of him. I’m sure that’s partially unfamiliarity to a new team.

    Was a tough game for him today tbh.

    Agreed, he looked very frustrated with his options everytime he was on the ball.

    For the life of me, I couldn't understand why he was the one marking Toby. It has to be Luiz.

    Can’t believe he was ever doubted. For me you could see his quality immediately, even though it was against Derby you just knew we had a player there.

    @bingobob Doesn’t miss when he truly rates a guy.

    Cba for that idiot @Hooplehead coming in here saying he watched the game and how Tierney still isn't fully fit and the injury is still niggling him.
