  1. So frustrating but so St.Mirren, one switch off moment and we get punished, why does it always seem we do not get these moments go for us? I still believe we are not brave enough and we need to start letting the opposition worry about our strengths rather than playing football to a manual. A classic example today was Kyle seemed to spend his whole game thinking about their left back rather than vice versa. As I have said before we have probably the best goalkeeper in our history playing for us, at the minute, so surely we should be taking advantage of this and be far more attacking and take risks. Also big Kirkie and McLoughlin are cruising games at the minute, so let's start getting the midfield more forward thinking, and rely on them keeping the opposition at bay when needed. I have my own thoughts on our forward players but do not think they can be properly judged until we see them get some proper support and stop living off of scraps and breakaways that they currently have to deal with. Our defensive goals column is very commendable but to have only scored 5 goals in 10 games is abysmal. As this is the match thread, we, to a man, ran about and gave our all but never really looked like scoring. Sound familiar?
  2. Do not understand why you mention dropping Andreu for Flynn or McGinn? The captain and Andreu are completely different types of player and more importantly play in different areas of the pitch. I for one was delighted he was back in today and he proved his worth throughout the game, this was highlighted by him clearing one off the line and having a part in the second goal. (you probably cannot work this out) My motm match was Foley, probably because he was having to do the work of two people!
  3. We have the best goalkeeper in recent memory and maybe of all time playing for us, so surely this is the time to be more expansive? As much as I admire the players work rate we seem to set up being more worried about how the opponents are playing rather than focusing on our strengths going forward. Maybe we don't have many but if we don't try we will never know. There is a coat of paint this season between all the clubs outside the old firm but we still find ourselves struggling towards the bottom of the league. Our defensive record is very commendable but 3 goals scored in 7 games is not good enough and there are only so many hard luck stories that the manager can spout. I have no problem setting up against the old firm in the way we are playing but we need to take the shackles off against the other teams. Probably should not have posted this on the match day thread but there wasn't really much to talk about again!
  4. Just back in from the pub and had a quick glance at this thread?? So rather than comment on what has been said before.. I saw a very determined Saints team that matched the horrible way that the opposition play football. We were certainly not free flowing but in our situation and with that weather could we expect anything different? I also saw our "defensive" midfielder run 60-70 yards, in the last few minutes of the game, to get on the rebound of a tremendous run and shot by Simeon and get his reward. I have no idea how he scored as I was too busy looking for the linesman putting his flag up for offside (the St. Mirren fan in me!) I then found myself running down steps in the main stand to pass on my regards to the Livingston manager ( the wee one not the big one). After waiting to clap the team off the pitch, I was leaving the ground and looked across to W7 and found there was still a band of fans singing a song that I have no idea what it was. Glad to see there are people still up for the fight and not point scoring on here!
  5. Being honest I think he is completely out his depth. He has a terrible habit of changing formation or personnel early in a game and this just leads to the players doubting themselves. Case in point was Wednesday night when Jack was taken off midway through the first half, this was against a team who had won there last 4 games and played more or less the same team in these games. What were we surprised about? Or were we just trying to shoehorn Ferdinand into a starting position? (I have no idea why somebody who's best days are long behind him is accepted by the bulk of the support) You would think, that with the amount of people cutting about the dugout area with their initials on their kit, that we would be extremely organised, fit, and the players would know there jobs down to a tee. We got caught offside from a short corner today!! And finally it has taken the management team three and half games to work out that our number "10" is one of the biggest imposters ever to wear the stripes.
  6. Sorry Pod I should have explained better in my post. I have a ST so only use the online facility to purchase away tickets, I appreciate there will be time limits from the club in posting out, but yesterday I tried to buy tickets for 10 days in advance (Brechin game) and was met with only the "pick up from ticket office" option. Hopefully the online ticketing system is something the club will be looking at over the summer months, as the OP has outlined it seems a bit hit and miss at the moment, and we should be making it as easy as possible for our support to organise the purchase of their tickets.
  7. The biggest problem I find is after putting my tickets in the basket, the dropdown option only allows me to pick them up from the ticket office? As I don't stay in Paisley this totally negates the whole process of buying online for me. I now just phone the ticket office, where they are very helpful, and they pop them in the post for me.
  8. Great second half performance, on a dodgy pitch with a very strong wind sweeping across the pitch, we controlled play and totally dictated the outcome of the match. Lewis back to his piss taking best and the desire of Kyle from of central position were a joy to watch. Special mention to Bairdy who was immense at the back and to Stellios who had to come on "cold" after the injury to Eckersley. Support for the team was tremendous from both the stand and from the "drum boys" on the terracing. The talk in the car home has now changed from if to when, no pressure Jack!
  9. Is it any wonder the manager is pissed off with these comments? A year ago today we were 8 points adrift in this league and are now 11 points clear at the top. This team has performed miracles in this time and have given us all some great days and celebratory nights over this period. I am fortunate/unfortunate to sit around the dugout area and some of the things said or shouted at times are of no help to the team. I would imagine some of the players are feeling a bit of pressure at the moment, so support is needed, they do not need or deserve too hear your words of wisdom!! Finally, selfishly, I want to come in from the pub to see our manager closing his post match "Top man Jimbo" interview, smiling not being surly like tonight!
  10. 11 games to go Jack, please keep him on the field as he will be vital to us winning the title.
  11. An absolute stick out since his return to our club, we are lucky to have him. His drive and determination in every game should not be underestimated as he is key to letting our flair players entertain us. He has had a huge impact on our club since returning and the rest of the team responds to his leadership qualities. For anybody in doubt, Stuart Carswell and Kyle Hutton were up against him today, remember those days!!
  12. Kyle was moved at least 5 or 6 times today on the instruction of our management team, he ended up just looking lost. Stelios is honking in any midfield role so why he was picked today in front of Sutton, Kirkpatrick etc is a question only the manager knows.
  13. Cannot belief someone has started a thread regarding this, our player did not dive he was the victim of a decision from a referee who is struggling badly at the minute and is out his depth. Just because Gavin and/or his team mates do not surround or remonstrate with him does not mean he is correct.
  14. Well done you can count (4-3=1) The run in from hell could also be the best days of the season as we are more than capable of winning all these games. But going from your continual negative posts you will be in attendance, mobile phone in hand, waiting to inform the supporters unable to be there our impending doom. And you could have simply said we are away to the top four!!
  15. I am sure that Brian Caldwell was well connected and very good at his job, but a chief executive would have no saying on the day to day running and selection of a football team. So why would a player sign for them? By all accounts Sally makes a lovely homemade empire biscuit but would/should have no bearing on a player coming to your club.
