  1. Can't hold off venting my frustration any longer. That was embarrassing to watch. Any potential midfield target or player we currently have must be thinking wtf. Yet again we resorted to hoofball tactics which was horrendous to watch. St Johnstone have a decent defence similar to ourselves in height and stature. Erwin managed to take a couple down but won very little if any in the air much like Obika in previous games. The inconsistency in playing free flowing football that occasionally happened has vanished. You could see Jim asking the players to slow it down and play it out yet nearly every time it went back to Jak it was hoofed. As I have said before Shaughnessy's distribution is poor. McCarthy is actually alright coming out of defence a bit with the ball and in some games has instigated passages of play. The tactical setup and what starts from the back line was one of the problems today along with a disjointed and disorganised midfield. We weren't positive enough minded from the offset which is a common theme and you have to wonder what the instructions / tactics were before the match. Yes we got a few chances but we were playing football like a championship team. If the instructions to Jak was to hoof the ball all the time then Jim is to blame. If it wasn't then Jim seriously needs to have a word with him as that is not anywhere near the type of football I would pay to watch. Interesting summer window ahead and next season will tell if he has a specific type of football he wants to play and attracts the right players to play it. Hope some of the new youth graduates are able to step up as there is a desperate need for energy on the park except for a few who performed but will probably be off. Congratulations to St Johnstone who thoroughly deserved to win and played some decent stuff. Roll on next season and hopefully we can get back to playing football rather than hoofball otherwise lets start looking for players from the Gaelic Football League.
  2. We scored in the 92nd minute. I am just being a pedantic arsehole though. 😂
  3. Are you sure about that 3rd sentence.? I am sure I remember another scottish team popping Rangers out a cup quite recently.
  4. Jim said he hadn't done enough to offer him a new deal, taking the injury into account. If he is able to contribute over the next few games and there are no offers from elsewhere (which might possibly be the case) then could still be an option for signing for another year i reckon. As for affording him, if no one else is willing to pay him higher money then I am sure he will be happy to give another season a pop to try and re-establish his potential/worth.
  5. Tactics, set up and substitutions. The glaringly obvious has been about all season. 1) We can't defend a lead by becoming more defensive. 2) Our defence are decent at clearing balls and general defending but not so great when being put under pressure plays. 3) JDH is a decent player but would be be better playing in straight 4 along with McGrath. We have decent players who can play football but setting them up to defensively is an issue. The diamond worked at the start but grew predictable. 4) Our attack is poor without dennis and brophy and general hold up play isn't great. 5) The gaffer needs to go all out to win to become a winner. The best form of defence is attack or at least trying to keep the ball as far away from our goal as possible. 6) We don't score goals from high cross balls and don't think we have any player who is decent at heading a ball towards goal. 7) Better the wingers swap sides occasionally to cut in and get shots off. I am not overly disappointed but more frustrated that Jim still hasn't learned our best way to play and to stick with it.
  6. Signed a professional contract back in june 2020 with us. Don't know the length of contract but imagine it would have been 2 years minimum.

  8. Would make the scottish game even more farcial than it already is. This should be a non starter no much how money is on offer.
  9. Won't be happening. https://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/19148141.st-mirren-jim-goodwin-ruled-aberdeen-running/
  10. Slightly off topic (pubs that used to be churches) but the most appropriate pub name just now is the nobody inn.
  11. Aye probably with the 'live stream here' gif again.
  12. Welcome, but it won't belong before you wish you hadn't bothered.
  13. Yep. Reckon it may be potentially easier for a midfielder to break through. Saying that if the forwards don't start banging in some goals then who knows. Some of the academy football is delightful to watch.
