    I agree I’m the game slipped away when we went down to 10. We will need to improve tho as could you confidently predict we would win a game in this scenario versus anyone? Im not sure we can slate the gaffer for today but he does need a win soon

    I’ve not seen enough good play to feel confident. Yes we have one or two players but the midfield looks like it’ll be overrun most weeks. We also aren’t able to score enough goals and perhaps still need to keep it tighter at the back. When you compare the starting 11 last year to this I think it’s clear we are weaker. I’m hoping that perhaps we can do a little business in the market as it’ll need some strength being added for us to have much chance. I realise it’s not easy replacing McGrath, Ronan and Gogic but we need better or else in my opinion we will be struggling . I am desperate for the manager to do well but it’s not clicking.. yet

    The team looks weak all over. Losing goals, creating nothing with lethargic and predictable play that becomes tedious. We also have no goal threat and with Motherwell in 10 days I fear for us. I think it’s possible now to say things aren’t working and following a terrible second half to last season the manager is now firmly up against it. He can still recover but I’m looking at a team that seems devoid or enthusiasm and motivation. This group should have been straight forward for saints but it’s become a nightmare and it’s put immense pressure on our manager to deliver points early . As I say I will back him still but i won’t be alone in thinking that it just doesn’t feel right as we really should look a lot better than this.

    Gogic was better than any midfielder we have currently and that’s a fact. The team tho lacks any creative spark and we will not score many that’s for sure

    Deeply worrying times.
    Difficult at the moment to really say what our strongest XI is but you could certainly argue that Carson, Shaughnessy, Brophy, Main and Baccus would be in it and that's almost half a team different to the one that started last night.
    Jay Henderson should also be in there well ahead of Olusanya IMO.
    The gamble on Ayunga and Olusanya isn't looking massively clever right now, but we just have to hope that at least one of them will get going eventually because if they don't we are in a bit of bother.
    The side is really lacking in creativity and I can't see Baccus being the answer to that going by what I've read about his attributes.

    I struggle to see what the plan is here. Slow lethargic uninterested players going through the motions in a competitive match . We have been beaten by Arbroath and Airdrie and in both games we have shown nothing at all. Following a dreadful second half to last season I’d have imagined our manager would want a fast start full of positivity that would get people on side. I see a team bereft of quality and general hunger at present. It really is awful and ok it might essentially be pre season but it’s pre season for all and it’s a cup we have fond memories of. The first few league games now are of increased significance as with a relatively favourable opening few games we will need to pick up points or else I see a manager under major pressure . If someone can tell me what he is doing please let me know. I have to say I’m not having that tonight

    I normally roll my eyes at comments like this as hyperbole, but I’m honestly struggling to think of a worse performance than that ever and I’ve been supporting Saints since 1976 so I’ve seen some garbage in my time. 
    I can’t think of a performance that was more complete in its shiteness. No quality, no spark, no creativity, no effort, no desire, no respect for the paying public and perhaps most importantly of all, no hope.

    Is Lyness now the forgotten man. I found his performance against Celtic to be quite inspiring jist before Xmas and although he was a little suspect at Motherwell’s opener in the 4-2 humping on april 2 I feel he is being overlooked here .

    Celtics offer of £125k is a absolute insult. Cost us more than that to develop the player.

    Regardless of future fees, we must be getting more for our biggest young assets in terms of actual cash.
    £125k and the rest on the never-never is simply ridiculous.
