Good game the day docherty slow to get started but am sure good things to come from this young guy. and to all the windass haters are you watching. David bates is a champion ship player he is the worst centre back in the spl.

Agree2 Disagree10

Break down the passages of play where bates was at fault then!?

18 Feb 2018 22:06:17
Again we have a midfield that can't defend

18 Feb 2018 22:45:13
Bates is basically a Hamilton accies standard player

18 Feb 2018 23:28:53

Bates isn’t good enough his distribution is absolutely shocking. If we want to catch Celtic he isn’t the answer long term

We miss Ryan Jack and Ross Mcrorie in the middle. Defensive midfield role.

I suggest all you lot slagging Bates go back and look at each goal they score. He is at fault for ZERO of them yet here you all are slagging him. The first goal Docherty fails to clear and then Martin doesn’t chase out to close down the shot. Second goal, Martin lumps the ball forward to one of their players then they break and score. Third goal, Martin hand ball. At what point did Bates do anything wrong? And for those of you saying his distribution is bad. he’s a good strong defender with good positional sense. If his distribution was good he wouldn’t be playing for us, it’s as simple as that. I think because he is young and came from raith he is the scape goat for when things go wrong at the back. I’ve seen him put in far more good performances this season than Alves has when he has played

Well said Blue
Bates was not at fault for any of the goals, Martin was at fault for two and Docherty the other.
Bates might not be the best centre half we have but at this moment he has the jersey.
Can anyone tell me any goal since the winter break that has been his fault.
The guy gives 100% every time but because he is not one of the pin up boys he is being made the scapegoat.
Instead of slagging the team get behind them.
Murty sees the players everyday and at this moment he thinks bates is better than Alves or Alves would have the jersey end of story
Onwards and Upwards just a think we are only 9 behind, the sheep beat them next week and then we do and the title is back on
keep believing

I have merely pointed out that Bates passing his terrible and he gives the ball away needlessly. For all those defending him are you happy with his distribution?

19 Feb 2018 08:47:46
I think everyone else defending Bates would be happy to give him time to improve his distribution as he is a young CB and the rest of his game is very good. Remember Craig Moore. Got pelters, went on to be a good Captain.

19 Feb 2018 15:24:56

Moore was being played at right back when he got prlters

19 Feb 2018 18:34:44
I know he was played right back when he was getting it rough. The point is he was given pelters when inexperienced And went on to be a great player for us. Give our boys time

19 Feb 2018 21:36:41
Feck sake. John Brown is given plaudits and he was and only was a strong defender. When he scored against Celtic after a nose bleed run, people weren't in awe they were smiling saying what the feck you doing up there. So give Bates a break.

19 Feb 2018 22:28:05
The penalty was unfortunate and for Martin to get booked was unbelievable to say the least. I didn"t think Bates had his best game but as a lot of guys have said, he was blameless for any of the goals
