  1. On the subject of the BBC sports coverage - this game was not even mentioned on their UK wide sporting highlights. Could you imagine this happening if such a match had been played south of the Scottish border?
  2. Obviously (like Thommo) the BBC did not consider the cup tie worthy of TV commentary since the 2 ugly sisters were not involved - as it looks like they 'borrowed' the footage from either the Motherwell or St Mirren TV!
  3. Dr Jekyll first half - Mr Hyde second half. Or put it another way - positive attacking first half - negative holding tactics second half. There can only be one winner now. (Hope I'm wrong).
  4. With an Irish manager and 2 Irish players - we are now applying 'Reilly's Law'. Dispose of 2 defenders when we didn't really need to and then lose 2 defenders through injury. And hey presto we have a crisis. Surprise surprise!
  5. Our striking options to Obika/Morias must be woeful in training or not fit enough. Either way - it's not encouraging. And the less said about tonight's formation the better.
  6. As I posted on another thread - who will turn up tonight - Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde? Now we know the answer!
  7. Surely a half fit Chabbi or Jakubiak would have given us more of a goal threat than Morias or Obika? Then maybe not!
  8. It's on Alba at 22:00 Thanks for that LPM - although I might not be thanking you later.
  9. It would'nt be St Mirren if we won this "six pointer".
  10. We got the Dr Jekyll version against Hibs and it was a joy to watch but I feel it was down to a lack of concentration on MacPherson and/or Durmus' part (2 of our best performers on the day) for their failure pick up Scott Allan in the middle of the park thus allowing him acres of room to set up the move for his goal. This lack of concentration was not down to the tactics being applied and neither was it in the case of Hibs' second goal when Morias failed to control the ball just outside our 18 yard line. Mistakes or lack of concentration can be punished anywhere on the park but if you are parked in your own penalty box that's where they are likely to occur.
  11. Which team would you like to see turn up at most matches? The team which performed v Hibs (especially in the first half) or the one which competed against Aberdeen - ie positive or negative tactics? Hamilton were really stretching Celtic yesterday with their adventurous play until the red card and gave an indication that they could be a very real attacking threat to us on Wednesday evening. They 'say' they will attack, as a draw is not much use to them, but will they try to frustrate us with negative defensive tactics and hit on the break (like we do against the 'bigger teams)? Does defensive tactics not just pass the initiative to the other team or is there a place and time for parking the bus? My own view is that a negative/defensive approach might help the goal difference but achieve little else in terms of points gained..
  12. Having witnessed our strikers' latest attempts at trying to score goals, I can only assume Cody Cooke must be less than impressive at training!
  13. Not on "the tranny" but currently on BT Sport - Hayden Coulson, playing at LB for Middlesborough v Tottenham Hotspur.
  14. Beware of Chris Burke today - he will be up against no established fullback, assuming Paul McGinn is in the centre.
