    St. Mirren v Kilmarnock, Monday 11th March 2019

    I think the injury to McGinn before the game started would have had an effect on how we played as currently he is a better player than Mcpherson who replaced him. If Tansey had been available that would have been a better swap. I thought we had better chances than Killie just failed to take them either through missing the ball across the box or Findlay's defending who I thought was their player of the match. At the end of the day we were playing against a top 3/4 team and competed for 89 mins of the game where they were restricted to mostly long shots aside from the goal and the one off the post, we would not have managed that pre-January window so still positives from the game.

    Welcome Mihai Popescu

    Amen to that brother he is very good , one of the best defenders I have seen at the buds so far comfortable defending and going forward, we have had lots of good defenders but less comfortable on the ball

    Welcome Mihai Popescu

    We already have the option to buy at the end of the season, no idea if a price has already been set, its in his signing news https://www.stmirren.com/news/club/all-news/2483-mihai-popescu-joins-saints-on-loan-until-the-end-of-the-season

    Nice answer to my point there, pointless though Unfortunately we did indeed lose to Utd in the cup and the following is not a justification however we are a team at the bottom of the Prem playing second in the championship so morale boost for them and it was a tight game which could have gone either way. And of course lower league teams never beat prem teams . We will see if you are correct come the end of the season or I am right to have hope. Question if I am right will you still want OK removed? If you are right for me it will depend on the nature of how we go down if its the surrender that we have done in some games pre January then yes he should go but if its nip and tuck all the way to the end then I would say give him a chance.

    Run along now , oh dear, oh dear and you say I have a narrow view You say you focus on the big picture of 24 games and 14 points but fail to see that 5 of those have come in the 3 latest games and yet you still maintain you have seen no improvement in the defence and team. Lets look at the same picture differently league Games before January when Ok and team could make little if any difference 18 points 9, 0.5 points per game League games since January 6 points 5 almost 1 point per game and as I have already said it was a team lacking knowledge of each other, fitness, confidence and not used to Scottish football I have neither black and white tinted glasses or a narrow point of view but I have seen an improvement, is it enough to keep us up only time will tell, is it enough to make me hopeful Yes it is

    You dismantled nothing in fact you never even replied to my justification for saying the defence is now stronger Think we'll leave this. If being realistic is seen as negative then you are indeed a fool. My pocket is getting full. So it is you that is having a nightmare, you ran as soon as I justified my comments so taking a leaf from your book

    In my case I was responding to you and showing you the difference between opinions and us being entitled to them without being insulted for it but you stick with your version

    any name calling is insulting and not really required on a forum but you seem to resort to it often I did not say that a difference of opinion is sad , please do keep up and actually read what I wrote Back to your emojis and your keyboard

    I love the irony of you using one game Aberdeen to do exactly what you accused me of doing (oh look I can use smilies too) Me suiting my point of view, you really have the Irony stick out today don't you and yet you call me a fool! Ok lets look at the team in the Motherwell game - Hldaky and Popescu recent recruits , Muzeks first proper game yet a team still getting to understand each other, half the new recruits trying to find their feet with our game and fitness . If that is me trying to suit my point of view I point to the evidence of Jones who initially struggled to get up to speed and fitness of the Scottish game but eventually improved. Your point of view is negative and refuses to consider the last 3 games or look at the players who are better than what we had and have allowed Flynn to show that he is a player after all. I would also say that Baird is flourishing with popescu beside him and made some great challenges on Saturday and has been gaining in confidence and consistency this year.

    In your opinion I may be but in my opinion You are the fool but we are all entitled to our own I did not use a single game to make a point so please do not try and justify your point by making one up for me. I gave the example of 3 games in a row where we have performed better than pre-January pointing at an improvement in defence, whether this continues we will see next Monday. I too look at the bigger picture and currently that stands at Draw , draw, win which I am hopeful we can continue.

    Continual blame game, yes that's because he brought in a load of players who may turn out to be world beaters but not what was required for the job, he did not improve the squad he regressed it. How many goals did we concede on Saturday....0 a team that has already slotted 5 past us in our previous 2 encounters , we kept Aberdeen to 2 and hearts to 1 , they are/were 3rd an 4th respectively how can you honestly say that is not an improved defence and team overall?

    I really don't get where your low opinion of OK comes from, he inherited a team devoid of confidence, missing players who should have been brought in in the summer to take us from a championship squad to a Premier squad. He arrived and instead of going in gung ho he assessed what we had and managed to bring in 3 players to steady the ship and let us limp along to January with little or no hope of winning anything but getting us there with a semblance of morale. In January he along with the backroom team rebuilt the squad from the ground up and we are now seeing the fruits of that with a more solid defence, the best goalie we have had for a while and a midfield that Flynn has now started to shine in. But more than that he actually has options on the bench so that he can make changes during games to try and swing things our way. Case in point he saw we were struggling on Saturday so he took off the Duck and brought on Jackson, this led to the goal. We started off afew weeks ago 6 points off 11th and are now 1 with lots of points to play for so to write off a manager based on his games with the crud he inherited from Stubbs is IMHO unfair especially when you look at the squad assembled in the one window he has had.

    St Mirren v the West Lothian criminals

    for those that think Livingston outplayed us sound like Holt would have been happy with a point and while Livi had more possession they did feck all with it based on the stats Quotes and stats from BBC I have highlighted Holts impression and shots on target we had 5 they had 1!!! St Mirren manager Oran Kearney: "It's been a while since I experienced a last-minute winner. It's a nice reward on the back of the previous two performances. To make those two points valuable, we knew we needed the three today. "Ryan Flynn's had a brilliant month for us; I don't know where he gets the energy from to start the move and then pop up to squeeze it in." Livingston manager Gary Holt: "It's not sore - it's naivety. It's game management and professionalism. We should just see the game out and it's something we need to learn. "The players need to learn that instructions given on the park need to be carried out to the letter. It's just disappointing that we've chucked away a good point."

    Let Me In...............

    As unlikely as Scotland voting for independence, there will be a deal of some sort, too many MP's know we are up shit street without one for a while anyway.
