Sean Clare ( merged )

He ghosted past a few today like they weren’t there. He was my only bright spot today along with Dikamona.

Get a quality team around him firing on all cylinders and I think Clare will add something extra special. He's not the guy to make things happen when everyone around him isn't at the races though, he's no Cameron, Hartley or Naismith.

He's got the heart of a mouse and the football brain of Chick Young. I've been patient with him, but unless there is a massive change in attitude and a willingness to handle the physical side of the game, he will not succeed in Scottish football.

Right back at you.

He gets bullied every single week. No fight, no desire.

Only player capable of going past an opponent. Needs to do it more often. Talent is clearly there.

A shame about the OG, especially if it came off the back of his head and he knew little about it

 

Some really tidy play today. Taking players on, tapping it down the wing and dribbling into the box. He was great to watch, shame the rest of the team's play was so poor at times.

He’s not made for the Scottish game or this team under the current manager.

Is that cause he can play football? Let’s just get a bunch of ball hoofers in like St Mirren will we.

Clare had some very decent moments during the game and was far and away our most inventive attacker. Every week we see something new and different which is very encouraging. Can't believe some on here dig around to find some sort of fault and completely overlook the very (and entertaining) positive things he brings to the team.

Completely agree!  Even after his og, his head didn't go down.

We need to get the ball to him quicker. In fact we need to get the ball to everyone quicker. Too lethargic and as mentioned on other post no urgency about the team!

Going to be a cracking player for us. Needs to impose himself throughout the full 90 though. Very unfortunate with the own goal. 

Have not seen a replay yet but looks like the ball landed in the 6 yard box, shouldn’t the goalie be claiming that? May be clutching at straws though.

I’d imagine down in England he would look outstanding in amongst good players. 

 

unfortunately  for him he’s in Scotland playing in an utterly awful side.

What happened with the own goal ? 

Did he head it straight in or did it hit off him ? 

Hard to see from Secs T , happened that quickly

Our down turn coincides with him being shoehorned into the team no matter how he plays. Showing the odd glimpse of class doesn't excuse the 85 minutes of nothing.

He needs to get involved more for me. However, he’s probably one of our best players of late. He looks more and more a footballer to me.

 

I think he’d be excellent in a good team. Unfortunately we ain’t that. 

 

I also think a nonsense to suggest he lacks heart, that is not something I could accuse him off after his first few games.

 

SEam Clare is not what’s wrong with us right now.

And that's why Scottish football is mired in the dark ages.  Cloggers and triers and to hell with the actual players with real talent and skill.

I agree.  Although it’s not helped when our manager plays players with skill in a formation - and with tactics - that are from the dark ages and suited for cloggers and triers.

Not really. You can have skill and talent but you need guts to go with it.

 

Thats standard in any league anywhere to be able to significantly contribute.

How did Hearts cope with the ball hoofers?

 

Did we rise above, show guile, determination, more skill and out think them to win the game?

 

You’d think we were some silky side the way a few go on.

Shouldn’t of been put in that position Kila least he was trying to get to it. Zlamal should of cleared the lot of them out and taken the ball. Clare is a cracking wee player and growing every game. Aside from Djoum , Haring and Mulraney they can all get locked in a room with a lynch mob

St Mirrens main tactic was the same as Livi boot is as high and far as possible and run. We really fail to draw teams out then cut them open. St Mirren and Dundee have played well at Tynie but we still should take 6/6 against those two.

Aye...In moments like this you cast yer mind back to past sides who coped and dealt with those teams.

 

Its hardly new for the opposition to play this way at Tynie. We just seem clueless now.

Sean Clare is quality. Gradually got better and better as his fitness and confidence has improved. I thought he was excellent v Motherwell as well. Will continue to get better, he’d show his true class if we played a quick tempo passing game.

Might of been better with a 3 at the back today and just let Mulraney and Morrison run at them. Watching St Mirrens defending was like watching an organised junior team. Souttar had so much space and when he got the ball was awful. Mulraney had a bit less space but got about two crosses in the rest won a throw in or corner. When we went left they left their right side wide open. Go right they left their left side wide open. Yet we couldn’t move it quick enough to take advantage. Rest of the time they had a bank of 5 and a bank of 4 across the width of the 18yard box and we looked lost.

He does show some real class, no doubt. Not anywhere near enough to be an automatic start every week. Would help if the team weren't so poor at the moment.

Best game by far yesterday but still needs to be braver. His lack of aggression was a huge factor, and made him completely culpable, for the OG.

Is the answer to the question, “What is Sean Clare not?”.

 

God help us if he gets injured or suspended in the run in.

He needs to do much more and I’m still not sure the coaches know his best position. For me he needs to be getting on the ball around the left or centre of the box where he’s scored his two goals which in reality is all he’s accomplished so far. As for Levein saying he was pulled or fouled for their goal is utter nonsense, he had lost his man and didn’t know where he was. If CL is consistent he surely must be dropped for Wednesday?
