McShane - 6. Dealt with pretty much everything that came his way.
What? Seriously I think McShanes performance was one of the worst I've ever seen from a CB.
Every time he cleared a ball it went straight to the opposition. He got absolutely bullied by the Striker all game, and then he was caught for the goal. If he's not dropped for Illori then Clement only has himself to blame when hes sacked
Agree with this. I'm not quite sure why this particular defeat and performance has annoyed me so much, but it really did. McShane was bullied as you say, from the 1st minute to the last by Magennis, and barely won a ball against him.
I do wonder if part of why PC was so angry after the game as well was that he knew he'd dropped a complete boll0ck by playing McShane. He certainly hinted at it. Was an absolutely shocking decision and I'd say it cost us the game.
Could feel the red mist descending every time he picked up the ball, shunned a pass forward, instead ran into a dead end, turned round and passed it back to the FB/Keeper/Moore.
