  1. Agree with other comments regarding our style of play, to me we give ourselves a mountain to climb before the first whistle some weeks. We are happy to play football between our CB's and JDH but once we step forward teams press us and we shell it long. It looked to me like Brophy was signed to provide an option for those long balls that are overhit and go behind the opposition defence. Hopefully we start passing forwards and pressing teams as no team in this league outside the big 2 warrant any respect.
  2. Contrary to boo-boy belief Erwin has been heavily isolated, against 3 physical defenders with not much service at all. Decent effort and good ball through to Connolly in the first half. Would like to see us firstly push up the park a bit more and also Erwin and Brophy up together for 30 mins.
  3. Not a particularly bad performance, but Rangers didn't have to really get out of 2nd gear to get the points. Different subs could've made the game a lot less comfortable for them i'd say; no real reason to have 2 defenders on down the left side after it went 2-0 for example, could've definitely changed upfront sooner and Connolly looked tired long before he went off. I'd take the opportunity to rotate against Kilmarnock.
  4. Presumably not on nullifying the league's top scorer and top assister all of 7 days prior.
  5. We haven't scored more than 1 goal in a league game all season. Not enough chances? Plenty chances, not prolific enough? Doesn't really matter, we are bottom and that is the facts. We need to find goals, quickly.
  6. How long are we going to persist with the same nonsense? Even a late goal or bonus point on penalties surely can't mask the fact we are poor on a weekly basis and have been for nearly a full 18 months now
  7. No shots on target in 90 mins at home and in 11 Premiership games not once have we scored more than one goal, not hard to see where the problem is.
  8. Goal every 4 games at Premiership level. With all due respect, is that enough to keep us up? Probably need another striker to at least match that, plus some goals from midfield i'd have thought. ETA - I think Erwin has been brought in as a battering ram to allow somebody else to flourish. Perhaps Dennis will add the goals we need as you say
  9. And unfortunately for him he was intent on shipping out everyone and anyone who he hasn't brought in so there isn't anyone else to turn to... Did JG sign them? Did Gus? Did Gus agree or just scout them? Are they really that bad after all or are they just being mismanaged? All questions that should be answered to the fans who have forked out to support the club through difficult circumstances.
  10. Read the rest of my post... if I wanted trophy laiden seasons and superstar teams I would have supported the Old Firm - they are just 5 mins down the road at the end of the day. There would have been many steps the club could have taken to soften the blow of the age-old tale of a St Mirren player going to a bigger club - we are all used to this by now. Many fans are now fed up with the club's actions. There is absolutely no need or benefit to the statement we released. We should be gracious and concentrate on bringing through the next academy graduate captain, and short term look at a competent replacement to prevent what looks like a real danger of relegation.
  11. I am embarrassed to be a St Mirren fan at this moment in time. I can 'reluctantly accept' missplaced obnoxious statements masked as ambition every July; surrendering meekly every week on the park and crawling to safety every year; shambolic departures of managers every 18 months on less than amicable terms; that we are not a massive club and our good players will eventually go onto bigger clubs, usually for a fraction of the fee other clubs get; that clubs the same size or lesser than us get their moment in the sun whilst we are perpetually in an underachieving state... What I struggle to accept from the club, which is more down to a morality thing - near silence to the paying, loyal supporters; lack of professional behaviour as an institution year in year out; and complete lack of backbone or ambition.
  12. I recall a certain ex manager pulling this stunt - we will never know if this WAS the intention, however, it can't be denied that they share striking similarities in a lot of instances. The aforementioned ex manager was, however, exceptional at getting and keeping us off bottom spot, will the same hold true?
  13. McGinn & McLean both valued at that amount. Morgan and Magennis also both have potential to go for that kind of figure in the future.
