    I do not like the formation this season nor the personnel being used to try and implement it.
    Last season we played one up top who was isolated. This year we go with 2 with the midfield support pushed higher than last season. Now we have 1 DM and last year 2. We have gone from having too many midfielders playing deep to too few.
    We try and get the ball in the box quickly and often. This results from far too many hopeful punts up the park, especially from Dunne, in the expectation that Main will beat two CBs sitting on top of him. Most crosses will come from the WB. Tanser does have a good cross but tends to drift out the game too much waiting for something to happen. Tait works hard but has slowed down and is pretty hopeless at crossing. Henderson can cross but cannot defend and is too inexperienced to be a first team automatic pick.
    However my biggest issues are Irish ones. McCarthy is no question our best CB but is not in the team as Jim wants a left footed CB. We didn't have a left footed CB last season but still had a very good defensive record so does it make much difference, if any? Certainly not when it means our best defender is left on the bench.
    And secondly we have an outstanding talent in McGrath being used to pick up second balls from the long punts instead of creatively trying to dictate play through the middle. His talents are being wasted as we have turned into a long ball team.
    I get what Jim is trying to do. I don't like it and do not enjoy it as I prefer a fast passing game like Hibs or Celtic, and do not think we have the players to execute his new formation properly. Long punts are a turn off.

    Sell Erhahon and give Jamie 4K a week makes more sense.

    As I said he is our best player and if he goes we are a far weaker team even if we have money in the bank or gamble it on someone who may or may not be as good. We will not find a better replacement.

    Not on today's performance. McGrath was head and shoulders better than anyone in our team. No offence to Tait, Kiltie and Tanser but they are midfield journeymen compared to McGrath (and add Erhahon, McPherson and Flynn) and we will not spend decent money to replace him. When McGrath goes the team will be substantially weaker.

    People volunteer an email address to the Club. They are hardly going to provide an address they cannot access. And if you use email then you know all about a junk folder and to check it.

    The answer is obvious, play McCarthy at the back and big joe centre forward

    Need to have Connor McCarthy back for this one.  Hearts will be dangerous at set peices . Hopefully Hearts luck runs out ,  they certainly got the breaks last week .

    St Mirren chose to inform fans via social media when they should have sent out an email to all season ticket holders about the ballot.
    Their communication with fans is simply not good enough.

    Seen 4 or 5 of their fans on Twitter saying that the Erwin rumours look to be true.

    A few posts back it was the clubs fault, then the Council, now Kibble. Seems to me  that in pure (understandable) frustration fans are just lashing out at any one and anything.

    Someone who is good at communications and marketing can't be a bad thing, they are the two areas of the club I'd say are most in need of improving.

    Ex-cop and match commander Elliot Brown according to Google. But strangely, although in post since March, he is not listed in the Club directory.

    Don't think Henderson is ready to be a first pick. More of an option off the bench.
    Let's hope whoever we're after has pace and can play right wing back. 
    With a quicker, better quality RWB, we'd have won today.
    And get McCarthy back in defence, while we're at it.
