  1. Not a stupid post. No way is Reilly good enough to play a lone striker role. he needs to play off a big striker. JR prefers 4.2.3.1 be tough for Reilly to play in that system


    I think he is good enough, but I agree to get the best out of him we should play 2 up top, or at least a Scotland style 4-4-1-1. All the attributes are there, he's intelligent, quick, 2 footed, better in the air than he should be for his height. For some reason, lots of people don't seem willing to give him a chance.

  2. A bit sad to see Rocco go, a very good player when fit. I think his chances might have been limited this season with us, been waiting for this to happen since McShane signed. I'm sure he'll have been keen to go, because he's too good a player to be sitting on the bench. He'll be an asset to another club, probably in this division. Good luck to him, unless he's playing against the buds.

    Would imagine there's a player on the verge of signing then, if we're clearing space on the wage bill.


  3. If the club already owns the land across from the away stand, would it not make sense to punt the valuable land in Ralston, use some of the cash to build a state of the art synthetic pitch and a gym at St Mirren Park and bank the rest? Could even be another revenue stream for the club. 


  4. Didn't make the game, but I'm finding this confusing. If you were a young player trying to win a move to a bigger club, surely you would do it by giving everything you've got and trying to impress, not taking the huff and half-arsing it. Doesn't sound like the kind of attitude we want at the club. I think Jack is very focused on the personalities in the squad, not sure Ryan would be a good fit given reports from yesterday.

    Actually think young Stewart looked good when he came on. Really mobile for a big guy, always looking for space. A work in progress sure, but a good prospect.

    He seems to have good instincts, finds himself in dangerous positions, the ball has a habit of falling to him in the box. Techniques like first touch and finishing can be taught or improved, but that ability to arrive in the right place at the right time is hard to teach.

    Really comfortable performance

     

    Good for Reilly and Smith to get some goals before the season starts. Morgan took his goal superbly.

     

    Few decent saves from Samson as well so a few positives that the team can take

     

    One negative for me...guy behind me in the stand gave Reilly and big Stewart absolute pelters all game. He actually didn't acknowledge Reilly second goal at all, imagine being that sad and petty.

     

     

     

    Some folk only go to games to moan. I think they're people that no-one will listen to in the real world, so the only way their drivel can be heard by other humans is by shouting it out in front of a captive audience. Moron. 


  7. I loved watching Zeefuik playing alongside Osman Sow. Big hefty battering ram who just barrelled through defenders and loved to get a shot away. 
    Would be a dream signing to be honest. 

    I remember the name, but not much about him. Sounds like what we need though.

  8. No change in management required. Saturday was terrible, but I still have faith in this manager and group of players. I think we need a striker, but the manager realises this and is trying to address it. For what it's worth, I think Reilly will score goals this season, just need another option, Stewart looks decent, but still very raw. Still think we'll be fine.

    I'd hope so and, as you say, this should give us opportunities to get something going forward but I'm still concerned about our ability to keep a clean sheet. :ph34r:

    I know what you mean, but I think the defence will settle, just might take some time. I don't think they'll play as direct as Livi, so it'll be more about our shape and discipline than dominance in the air. It'll be interesting at the very least :lol:


  10. Saturday will be tough. I think we might scrape a 1-0 win though. It'll be very different to Tuesday night because Thistle will fancy themselves at home against lower league opposition. They'll come out and attack, that will suit us.

    I'd like to see O'Keefe given a start. He looked pacey and direct when he came on against Livingston. I don't think Stewart has done a huge amount wrong, but he's not a natural winger. I'd also like to see Stewart (GK) given a shot in a competitive game. Nothing against Sammy, just haven't seen Stewart play yet. I'd also bring in Baird for Buchanan and drop Smith back into No10.

    So...

    .........................Stewart.............................

    Irvine......Baird........Mackenzie.......Stelios

    ............McShane...........McGinn................

    O'Keefe..............Smith..................Morgan

    ...........................Reilly...............................
