Brilliant.  Even got a wee bit of the Stevio Mclarenio going on there. 😁

He done well up until that goal. Reckon his teammates need to trust him abit more. A few times he was in plenty of space, they chose a different option and it broke down. They had some great chances in the first half too, should've been 2 up at least by HT.

Oh dear. Certainly a learning curve for the kid. 

It’s a learning curve for any player going to Italy to be fair. Very technically and tactically astute players throughout the league. He’s probably better that as a young lad he is still raw material for the coaches, not so easy for an older player who is set in their ways.

Benevento 28 lightly but clearly punched Bologna 52 on the nose/mouth,  during a set piece at end of the first half, injury time.  

 

It's during a VAR decision for a penalty to Benevento :facepalm:  They have totally missed it.  Absolute disgrace.  Just watching the full match on free sports from last night. 

 

I am going to assume they didn't award a red card because it was a penalty check and not a red card check.

 

Apart from that, Hickey's positioning is all over the place in the first half.  He got stuck in and showed his composure. At times he was playing centre forward ☺

Totally agree, even newly promoted Benevento's scorer is a 30 year old striker that Milan paid 8.5m for and has gone for over 22m in total transfer fee's, not going to be too many easy games in the italian top flight for Aaron, he'll develop immensely from it!

On a slightly unrelated matter is there a reason that I haven't seen Hickey mentioned for Scotland under 21s?

Because we have a very weird approach to bringing youngsters into the international setup. Ryan Porteous getting fast tracked to the full Scotland squad for example, when a two-footed player from Serie A who can play across the back line seems to be a much more useful back-up. Or Shankland getting picked before Fraser Hornby.

When he was with us I'm pretty sure we/he requested he wasn't called up for international duty as he was playing every week for us and needed the time to rest.

 

Right now COVID is probably the reason, there's a 14 day quarantine for folk arriving from Italy so not much chance of him featuring while that's still in place.

All part of his education.

 

Suspension and injury (and a whole lot of ability) have given him his chance much earlier than anticipated.

 

Good luck 👍

Thats harsh.

Well taken goal from Sass... would have needed a motorbike to get there faster. 

He's got s winger to contend with so obviously been  told to hang back.

Playing more of a full back role today.

Anybody else really enjoying watching Bologna play? They play some really good one touch football, makes a change to British football!

Hes great technically and great going forward however you can tell he will take a few years to physically be up to the challenge of defending against these guys.   He is no where near ready for physical defensive duals at this level

Apologies. 1st time I've watched Hickey play out there. Was 3-1 up when I tuned in and went downhill rapidly.

The cookie has crumbled yet again for the Bologna defence.   They need a rebuild probably a new manager as well.

I am obviously slightly biased but ...

 

He was given a lot of responsibility when Bologna had a corner as he was one of the two left to defend a break - he did that well.

 

He was in good position when the corner was taken, then there was a horrible sliced clearance as he was moving out (as he should) and it became a free header.

 

Noticeably after that he was marking at the edge of the box for future Sass corners - maybe he should have beforehand as well! 

 

As said earlier it’s part of his learning but getting the 90 minutes was a bonus for him.

 

Bologna haven’t kept a clean sheet since February. ... no wonder when you see the second goal.
