St Mirren v Inverness CT. SPFL Championship 9/9/17

Recommended Posts

"Pooly" indeed.... 

Poor  journalism skills doesn't maybe, doesn't mean the player was onside. 

Well, seeing as you're now picking up on spelling , "doesn't maybe" doesn't make sense.

He was onside, people saying it  was because  it" hit off" or "took a nick of" (sic) a Saints player don't know the offside rule.

It wasn't a forward pass, it didn't take a nick, it didn't hit off the saints player. It was played back by the saints player who got to the ball first. 

It was onside and the ref, on this occasion  made the right call. 

I'm well aware of the offside rule, spent 10 mins or so arguing with a stupid Jambo at the Scotland game on Monday who kept shouting at Griffiths as he thought he was offside at every goal kick  

Don't know where you sit but it was funny watching the rage from people in the west stand who obviously had a different angle. Everyone around me in the family stand knew it was played back by a Saints player.

Oi, I worded it correctly

Great post. Couldn't understand all the abuse the linesman was getting.  Like it or not the officials in their own way came to the right decision, unfortunately it wasn't in our favour.

Without being pedantic, that was the linesman. 


Didn't Collum overrule the linesman for Caley's second goal?

I thought that we maybe had a shout for a penalty in the second half but apart from that I can't think of any incidents where Collum made a decision I had a problem with.

Sit in the West Stand just level with outside the box. Saint's player played the ball back. Linesman initially confused and raised his flag but almost immediately corrected this. Ref correctly allowed play to continue and we lost a goal. 

Pity that talk is about the refereeing team when both sides served up a great game of football with the result going in our  favour and taking us to the top of the league.

partly agree, though I do think there was bias against st mirren...2 out the 3 penalty shouts which were in my view good ones and the pass back which actually hit a grounded saints player for the second ICT goal was questionable....ref and linesperson were abysmal in my opinion and get paid more than most gate payers get in a week. Collum is a dick but I do agree that there is to much personal shit stirring and not enough positive talk about the top of the leauge team....

Another game where "possession" didn't seem to particularly help - at our level it's definitely overrated.

Well done Jack Baird who I thought played pretty well yesterday. Everyone has their favourite players and those that they don't like. A lot of people seem to hunt certain players and have them earmarked as not good enough but I think every player is going to play their part in what is shaping up to be the most memorable season for some time.

Doesn't get a lot of praise but I thought Eckersley had another great game yesterday - reads game well, strong in the tackle and his distribution was top drawer.  For first time in a long time though we have genuine pace in attack . Morgan was almost unplayable at times yesterday and Reilly must have covered some ground as he chased and harried everything.

Finally after some horrendous years we have a team worthy of our support - hopefully the fans will get behind this team in numbers and we can get some momentum going. 

COYS !

Jack Baird also had a great game , no nonsense clear your lines display from the guy, won nearly everything he challenged for.

After watching those highlights I'm surprised Ridgers wasn't giving the MOTM, thats the best game he's ever had 

for us...

He  have a good game but what the highlights don't show is the deflection for then first goal. Was going towards far post before defender got a flick to it, still should have saved it with his feet though.

I like John Robertson, and usually what he has to say, but that interview! almost at the stage of "take the 4 St Mirren goals out of it and we win that game 2-0"

Loved the big TOP OF THE LEAGUE cheer :clapping:happyclapper

I'm sure he said they should have had six (6). :wacko:

I'm not going to single anyone out but JR will know we are nowhere near the finished article. Defensively we were poor yesterday , and a better team could have pushed us harder than ICT did. We have better defenders coming back from injury than three of the four that played yesterday , interesting team selections coming soon !
