    Jim Goodwin was the only person in the stadium who actually knows what it’s like, and more importantly what it takes, to captain a team to cup winning glory. It makes his team selection and tactics all the more baffling.
    Connolly was on a yellow. So what? He was the one spark of creativity we had and he took him off!
    Once we went behind you could see that no one knew what to do.
    I still can’t understand why you would set out not to lose a semi final and not try and win it from the first whistle.

    That’s a couple of folk now said that Tait was our best player yesterday.
    I’d agree Tait was definitely one of very few to come out with any credit, but I thought McCarthy was comfortably our best player, head and shoulders above the rest.
    Consistently solid in defence and was the only one for me to make any real probing passes when playing out of defence. 
    After being really impressive last season I felt he made a bit of a shaky start to this season, but for the last 2 or 3 months I think he’s been fantastic. 
     
    Was also unlucky yesterday when generating arguably our only genuine attempt at goal.

    I really hate to say this but now that I’ve calmed down I will. I think that Goodwin believes himself to be some sort of tactical genius and beyond reproach. He has an irritating habit of answering a question  by saying “ listen” then going on about how he sees the game which seems far removed from the reality. Of course he is a club legend for captaining us to cup glory but he needs to look in the mirror. He comes across as arrogant which would be fine if we were winning regularly but we aren’t.

    Goodwin need a good boot in the stones for such a cautious formation. It’s a cup game ffs we look a bit better with more attacking intent but too late

    Three bounces before the Livi player eventually heads the ball... Not one single challenge from a Saints player!

    We look beaten. Our player body language is shocking.When you have a throw in and clearly don’t have a plan then you can forget it.
    Every Livingston player knows his job, we clearly don’t. Hit and hope will not turn this around.
    We have been found out big time. No creativity, no heart, no goals.
    Watch us turn it around second half😂

    Disappointing as the score is we could have been on the end of a severe doing in retaliation for the cup defeat. Historically that’s what usually happens. No one wants a loss but minimal damage done.

    The Buddies line up on Facebook includes at least 1 triallist. Anyone got any idea who it was?

    Problem is if the triallists are any good we run the risk of Hibs or whoever usurping our plans by offering them a better deal.
