  1. For me I would sum the season up as comfortable. We, probably from January onwards and after we got the points deduction reversed, gained enough momentum and points to (on hindsight) take the usual relegation dogfight away. We also achieved some good away results this season that helped massively. That, in my view, is the ‘success’ as for the cup semi finals, I would have to agree with Ronnie’s view whereby going out at that stage does not amount to success. I firmly believe that we were sucked into the hype of both teams we played in the semis were on form at the time and, to a large degree, negated our tactics and confidence. but, all in all, a 7th place finish is progress so well done to the boys for that.
  2. A typical end of season game but great that we got the 7th place finish. We deserved that over the season and feared that we would drift down the table after missing top 6. we were comfortable in possession, although we seemed to panic when they went down to 10. Brophy looked fit and sharp today which was nice to see. Cammy and Jamie very good on link up.
  3. As it stands we don’t need a winner but our play this half deserves it
  4. Some of our link up play has been a joy this half. Shame about the end product.
  5. I totally agree, bud, but these are the margins that we have to deal with. We should have had enough about us to be more positive in our play. I would argue that St. Johnstone/Livingston are no better than us but they believe more in the game plan that there manager sets out for them.
  6. I read many posts that we were beaten by ‘the better team’ today as was said after the Livingston semi final. I, after a few hours of reflection, am still finding that hard to believe and is nothing more than an excuse. I have seen us play in many semi finals over a number of years and, in my opinion, these two provided us with the best opportunities to progress. so my thought is, why are St. Johnstone and Livingston ‘better’ than us? we have the best squad we’ve had in years and the manager has been very well supported yet we have fallen at every hurdle this season, apart from not in relegation with games to spare. so, from my own humble opinion, this season has been no more successful than the play off season. Only my opinion, mind but poor game management has a helluva lot to answer for...
  7. I thought we were very weak in the middle of the park and, no harm to him, but Ethan way out of his depth. poor, lazy defending for the first goal. Durmus and Alnwick were top for us today. i understand that people are saying it’s been a good season. I reserve judgment as we could have done so much better. the only plus for me, at this particular moment, is that we were safe with games to spare
  8. Well there goes another one...... substitutions key today, in my view! theirs was inspired and ours were just baffling! was Tait injured? I also felt Dennis was beginning to find some space before being hooked.
  9. I don’t agree with this ‘we have a cup semifinal’ or ‘the game means nothing’ so rest players! momentum is everything and every game is important. If we were in relegation trouble, which we have been and probably will be again in the future, we’d be raging if someone put out a weakened team. Be careful what you wish for and we are not a team who can afford to be arrogant. don’t get me wrong I hope it pays off next weekend but losing at home to Hamilton and dropping in the league is still hard to accept.
  10. Absolutely magnificent game! It had everything. Great shoot out. I think my heart has stopped!! ye can shove yer super league
  11. No matter how this ends and no matter what we think of the performance, we have shown never say die fighting qualities tonight
  12. Credit to the team played the last twenty like the first twenty and got the reward. Quaner never looked confident with that chance at the end. Shown some fight in the latter stages of the second half
  13. Yet another one for the list of strange substations from the manager.... let’s see if I’m made to eat my words 🤔
  14. The midfield have gone right out of the game. They have let mulumbu and power bully them with persistent fouling. Both should at least be booked. We’ve got to man up in middle of the park
  15. I know it’s our way but we were in no danger, in fact they looked really nervous at the back. But, in true St Mirren fashion, within minutes we’ve just fallen apart
