    Not me.. StJ out played us three times, we were awful twice in Perth and we won in Paisley in the last 10mins against 10 men. I don’t think we were negative today but our inability to score goals is what cost us we are just not good enough at the top end of the pitch to be a top team and we also don’t score enough from midfield Mcgarth has obviously scored goals but 90% have been penalties. Our goalkeeper and defence is what put us in a position to be top 6 and I think all bar Fraser are contracted for next season so we now need to start looking at the midfield and the strikers if we want to take that next step.

    Thanks for posting the link. I've added my comments telling them to jump in the sea with this idea but I don't know whether this will have any effect. Clearly this is being done so quickly to take advantage of the pandemic causing financial hardship for lower league teams. For that single reason alone the people driving this should be permanently removed from our game.

    The Vaccine

    The utter rudeness (is that a real word?) of people never fails. Shopping in Dundee today and almost 50/50 on people not giving a monkeys on distancing, in fact pushing right in when they feel like it. Maybe it's the vaccine giving some feeling of invincibility, I prefer to think people are just fcukwits.

    Welcome Vaclav Hladky

    The press in any country will go after a side of a story that suits their agenda which is to sell newspapers. Vaclav probably said a lot more than was reported, but that story will never be told. If anything positive came out of that story it’s that he never signed for those bigoted sectarian racist cnuts.

    Apart from Covid a lot of the breaks went our way this season eg lots of penalties, opposition players sent off, Danny Rogers giving us a goal. There weren't many games we won where we were clearly better . We have the makings of good side but we are not top six quality yet. Close season signings will be crucial . No individual games spring to mind that could have changed things . Probably the February draws killed us.

    A lot of credit due to the team today. We could easily have folded after the unfortunate situation two weeks ago. I think the international break gave time for the wounds to heal. A thoroughly professional performance today and pretty much everyone played their part. Great to see Dennis back, tremendous goal too, and a safe pair of hands in goal. great response today 👏🏻👏🏻

    Hmmm , let me think 😐 Would I prefer the children of Scotland to receive the “bribe” of a laptop or Tablet .... or would I prefer them to have a share in a lovely cuddly extra Nuclear Warhead . Or could I chose option 3 .... a share of a mythical bridge across the Irish Sea. Some bribes are better than others .

    There are six games, in two blocks of three, where we surrendered our top six spot. Ours. It was ours to give away, which we did. Kilmarnock 1-1 St Mirren St Mirren 1-1 Motherwell St Johnstone 1-0 St Mirren Then the three February home draws. St Mirren 1-1 Hamilton St Mirren 1-1 Livingston St Mirren 0-0 Motherwell All six games were winnable. A win in any of the six games and top six was ours. Dreadful defending 2 minutes from achieving a top six spot was just the most obvious of a series of failures. Still a decent season and a vast improvement on what we have endured in recent seasons, but it could have been a great season.

    My heart sank when I saw the lineup today. When we play 2 up top we just lump high useless crosses in to 2 forwards that cannot head a ball anyway. The best we have played this season was with a 4-2-3-1 formation playing the ball on the deck yet we stopped playing that the last two months. Formation and personnel cost us today.

    Covid cost us. Players were knackered playing 3 games a week coupled with injuries and ran out of steam. Still it’s great to be going into the last 5 games knowing we cannot be dragged into the relegation scrap. Successful season considering

    Welcome Jake Doyle-Hayes

    It was reported that we had made an offer on Dec 22 (just checked) and that we were hoping for a reply within a week or so... He's not staying, but then come the end of the season there's always one or two players in this category (at every club), I'd still play him and wish him all the best when he leaves.

    Get real here people. Every player is looking for the best deal and some. like Doyle Hayes, are likely to command a bit more attention than others. Professional players are like most contract workers. They'll go where they get the best deal. The club put down a firm offer and wait to see if someone betters it. No harm. No foul.

    The Politics Thread

    It's such an emotive subject for many and I think half the battle (for me anyway) is removing that emotion, we could talk on the subject for pages but for now I will give you a really important point for me on the size of Scotland globally, in the EU/ UK/ anything else. I often think people look at an independent Scotland and think it would be much weaker as a world power than the UK & that's a bad thing. For me it's not at all, Scotland doesn't need to emulate the world force the UK is (was to an extent, for me there is a slight sense of hanging onto an ever shrinking relevance in a changing world). We don't need a chair at the top table, a big army and a big say on global politics and issues IMO. What we should be aiming for is a small, green, progressive, innovative and inclusive nation. Oaks mentioned the Scandinavian countries and that's exactly it for me. If in 20-40 years time Scotland were a largely energy self-sufficient nation with a comparable quality of life to a Norway of a Sweden (pandemic excluded) I would be delighted at what we were leaving future generations. I don't need Scotland to have a major say in EU policy or to be a leading force in global stability or security, it's just not practical for a nation our size and dare I say it, the UK going forward either. What I do need from Scotland is trailblazing in environmental stability, a return to what we once were in education, innovation and progressive thinking as well as a nation with inclusive governance and an ever improving quality of life for it's people. I personally think that's probably only possible as an independent nation but is a long way off and will require the right governments and options going forward. I am largely undecided on the overarching question of independence because of the governance as previously mentioned but I don't think all of this could not become a reality in a generation or two as an independent nation, I think it would be far harder remaining in the UK under pretty much two party politics that right now, I can't put a fag paper between.

    We will be lucky to finish 7th now. The late collapse against Celtic has come back to haunt us here. The big picture is we have improved and the defence are behind that. The forward play is utterly abysmal and we don’t score anywhere near enough goals. I’m also not a fan of the constant tinkering and I’m sick of Jim being overly cautious at times. Today 1 up and probably looking the better side yet we take off a striker and eventually we have nothing up front . What a chance to make a wee bit of history with our best ever finish and to try and chase down Livingston. Europe for either them or st j possibly. Livingston top 6 back to back and st j now have ten top six finishes. We can only dream of that. Throw in county and thistle as top six clubs of the past And for us never to have made it really is a sickener. As for him today to blame the ref lacks class. We have had some v soft pens this year too and without McGrath’s goals we have scored 19 and even he has six pens in his tally. it was lost today in the last minute but the inability to gather more points from all our home games has killed us. We beat Celtic and after that it all went a bit flat sadly

    All depends on what you count as success or failure, if success is avoiding a relegation scrap we should just about manage that. Midfield and forward has had no continuity or style of play for the majority of the season. As someone else has pointed out we have actually only played well in a handful of games all season. We have a manager who spends to much time worrying about the opposition rather than letting them worry about us. Our "success" this season has been built solely on our very reliable goalkeeper and the defence. We have turned JDH from a box to box midfielder into a very average holding midfielder and you could probably say the same about Ethan beside him. Durmus is asked one week to play as a wing back then the next a winger is it any wonder he looks lost at times. The least said about the right hand side of midfield the better, where Connolly and McAllister compete most weeks to see who can run about the most and contribute nothing to the team. We have a multitude of forwards and for me, they all fall into the "mehh" category, oh for a Somner, McDougall, McAvennie... sorry showing my age. Finally we have a manager that overthinks everything and seems scared to take risks and today was another perfect example of this. To summarise I feel sorry for the guys at the back, but going forward that is not a top six team i'm afraid.

    We got exactly what we deserved. A big mistake when we took off Erwin and set up to defend our lead after only 55mins ! All that did was encourage Accies to continue pressing and attacking us. This was compounded when we took Obika off, and left us with no striker. As someone else said earlier, we didn’t lose out on 6th place today, we lost it by not picking up enough points in those six home games in February. Not sure how many of the remaining 5 matches we will win ...

    Absolutely pathetic. Completely blown what should have been a certain top 6 just a few games ago. There are no excuses. And for those that say 'well it's great to be fighting for top-6' - yes, but it doesn't excuse how badly we collapsed, and ultimately it's goal difference i.e. not being able to score enough goals that has ruined it for us.

    You do know this is just a wee fitba fans forum? However deep and important you feel your views are, expressing them on here is not going to bring you world wide exposure. So, the fact that a thread was deleted on this little forum of ours is anything but important. Some people don't know where their next meal is coming from, others struggle to pay bills for heating, many a pensioner is living on the pittance that is the state pension, Scotland is being held in an oppressive union against the will of its (clever) people, people are dying and they cannot even get a proper funeral during this bastarding lockdown, kids are missing their friends and so on. The world is full of real problems, your thread being deleted is NOT one of them!

    Only standing candidates on the Regional Lists where the SNP only gained 4 seats last time round, more likely to hurt the Greens. Doesn't affect me I'll be voting SNP/Green again. He has a point that tactical voting for a second Independence party could increase the pro-Independence majority at Holyrood but I couldn't stomach voting for a party led by Salmond given what he's done over the last 12 months. If he had acknowledged his past behaviour had been inappropriate then maybe, if he can't acknowledge (nevermind apologize) because it might leave him open to further legal action then all the more reason for him to stay the hell out of Dodge. Interesting to see estimates that between 5-7% of the Regional List vote might win the new party seats at Holyrood. ********************* FFS - It appears Joanna Cherry has defected to Alba - Long live Boris King of the World,,,

    Right time to rebuild now. Time to get rid of a players. Obika. Erwin. Finlayson who never played a game. Quaner gone. Be 1 or 2 maybe hanging to their jobs. Goody has done a great job. But some of his negative tactics has cost us. Constantly trying to hang on to 1.0 which he done today. Just not good enough. Obika has dined out on his goals last season. But this season hes missed more than he's scored time for him to move on.

    St Johnstone deserve it. They are a far better side than us and are justifiably 6th. We have been rank for quite a while whilst they have been superb. We couldn't have come close to doing to Hibs what they did to them in LC semi at Hampden. All the talk of Goodwin, the real young up and coming manager is Calum Davidson

    A couple of retail establishments I used to frequent. McDougal Bros in Moss Street was a great shop to go and wander round. They chased you out a few times, but it was an interesting shop to spend your time especially if it was pi**ing down outside. The Sherwood Café, was always worth dropping into especially if you were meeting the girlfriend at the Kelburne and you were early, or she was late. Of course no mobiles in these days so you had to keep popping your head out the door to check if she had arrived.
