    Oldfellow got a reaction from W6Saint in Inverness Ct V St Mirren... 3/8/13   
    And will again unless we do panic and get players in .
    Lots of time to think on the way back from Inverness. The following were just a few of those random thoughts.
    We have a manager who doesnt have a clue at this level . He can't identify good players, good enough for Premier League eg bringing in half the Cowdenbeath team . Adams and Butcher are streets ahead. He imagines we can emulate Barcelona , now Newcastle . We can't and never will. He says all the things he has to to keep him popular - we are wonderful fans , the Chairman is great etc . These are all empty as is the attempt to play the PROPER way . The Proper way is to play football that wins games.
    Despite all the great things said about our youth set up I don't see much , apart from John McGinn coming through . What I see is a bunch of wee guys lacking physique.
    Just because you come from Paisley or support St. Mirren does not mean you are a great St.Mirren player. I'm genuinly not having a go at anyone in particular but that seems to have been the way over the years.
    The club itself is stale , even on the non footballing side . Too many people too comfortable I think . The whole organisation needs a kick up the a***.
    Wont ramble on any more

    Agreed. Dont understand why DVZ seems to get less criticism than others . Just because he's a good guy doesnt mean to say he should be playing premier league football. I reckon we need both a right and centre back.

    Oldfellow got a reaction from W6Saint in Left Back   
    Agreed. Letting Carey go was an error of the highest order. Bringing in two inxperienced goalkeepers and no striker or left back was an error of the highest order. Bringing in half the Cowdenbeath team was an error of the highest order. Passing the ball around the back until the opposition get it is an error of the highest order. The person making these errors doesn't seem to be into learning from his mistakes .

    Naismith looked streets ahead of DVZ who seems to be everyones favourite presumably because he's a decent guy. DVZ needs a challenge to up his game .
