We were talking at the Blackpool game about us looking at getting a Falconer type (I know there could only ever be one Wullie Falconer!) for this season. It's exactly what we're missing in my opinion.
You look at County last season, or St Mirren. Or even us last the last two times we got promoted (for real, not team 12 season). None of these teams were playing out and out shexshy football. Some good passing play combined to a bit of steel and directness gets you out of the Championship. I'm not asking for hump it long stuff but I've got a feeling that if we think we're going to pass our way through Morton, Ayr, QotS, Alloa etc, then we may well be very disappointed and frustrated, especially at Dens.
We'll be a scalp in this league and the last times we were in it teams came to Dens determined to sit tight in defensive lines and nick the odd goal on the break. The 'better' teams in the league might let us play a bit but most definitely won't. It did however, look to me like Byrne, Ness, Forster and McGhee look up for that battle though.
