Saint Mirren V Livingston 14 April

Recommended Posts

That was a nerve wracking afternoon at work. Constantly checking the phone for updates.

Outstanding season. Enjoy your night buds. Wish I was in Paisley tonight. Can't wait for next Saturday.

Well done saints job done. Game was a bit of an anticlimax overall. We struggled to impose ourselves on Livingston who were less nervous and quicker to react. Draw was probably right result today. I felt a bit flat at the end, possibly due to the inevitability of winning the league and the way the game went. Jack Ross interviewed on BBC intimated a similar perspective saying last seasons escape felt more elated. However pressure to see it out evident from his comments. Here's hoping we can turn on style next two games and not allow Morton to spoil party next Saturday

Finally managed to get online thanks to an electrical storm here in Hanoi. Was the ground full?

Announced as 6.100  so about 2000 short even though there was saints fans in the away end

All that mattered today was winning the League and we done that.

Livi are a very physical team with plenty of big guys. One tactic only to lump high balls in - they must have had about 6 headers on goals today but rarely a shot. Thought our wee guys played really well against them and overall we did enough to win but a point will certainly do. Well done guys. :)

Saints occupied the main stand, South stand and West stand plus a section of the North stand. 

I'll leave it to you to do the arithmetic Faraway. 

Pre Brechin game I had predicted 6250.

I have to admit to heaving a great sigh of relief when McKenzie blocked that Hardy effort near the end. It would have been the "St. Mirren way" in past years to lose it at the death. We deserved more than the draw but We Are The Champions my friends. The Champions indeed, as someone on here might have said.

Reasonably comfortable point to wrap things up. We threatened them, they rarely threatened us. Applauds to McGinn, clearly, no-where near full fitness, hirpled through the game manfully.

Have to say though, the pitch invasion disgusted me. Not one basturt’ wearing Adidas Sambas. Shameful.

Champions, and deservedly so. Hopefully, instead of disappearing up our own arses now, instead, we relax and administer the ritual pumping to Morton, and give Alex Smith a rousing reception at both games against Falkirk.

Easy the Mirren.

That pretty much sums the game up , the Hammer Throwers used their power to stop us , ball on the deck using all our pace especially on the counter may have done the trick but in the end it didn't matter . The fat lady has now sung and Jack Ross was lifted into the air by his players. .

Let's get this party started !!! Fck yes!

To be honest - the celebrations were the highlight of the day and well done to all the players and coaching staff over the season.

It has been a momentous 15 months or so.

From the greatest ever escape last season to stumbling over the line to the Championship this season.

However, we will have to strengthen for next season. While we did threaten Livi in front of goal especially in the second half, we were regularly outplayed by them in the middle of the park.

We persisted in heady 'keepy upy' for long stretches of this match despite the fact we have one of the smallest forward lines in the Championship. We regularly lost out on 50-50 situations and we will pay for this in the top flight next season unless we address this "shortfall".

McGinn and Magennis helped us to salvage a point along with McKenzie, but this performance did not make for pretty viewing.
