Alan Gow - The Forgotten Man

Recommended Posts

Turned out doubtful was an understatement. Looks like it will be a race to see whether Goodwin recovers quicker from his broken ankle or Gow from his strain.

A repetitive strain injury from getting on and off all those physiotherapists tables over the years?

There's a short clip on YouTube where thommo is interviewed. He is asked some questions about team mates. When asked who is the most skilful player he answered "Gow"! So somebody at the club rates him. He might be terrific in training and anonymous in games. it does happen to some players. Is Alex Rae the man to get the best from him or is it too late? If he was going to be punted in the transfer window its unlikely he would have been included in yesterday's squad. Perhaps he has one last chance

Gow maybe out injured, maybe a fraud etc, u ask any player or member of coaching staff they will tell u Gow is a fantastic player...maybe he is psychology injured, can't perform on matchdays etc!

Gow was playing superbly in the game against Motherwell, (his last start?), and wasn't shirking any tackles. He took a fair amount of abuse that day due to not being protected by the officials before he was stretchered off. that's the Gow we all would like to see. The strange thing is that, if he applied himself like this regularly, he would be proclaimed as a star on this and any Saints' forum. Maybe Rae can get this through to the guy and we can spend our time singing new songs about him.

I wouldn't say superbly, maybe by his standards. He had a good game that day but 1 or 2 good games on 12 months isn't a good ratio, hopefully Rae can get him playing good stuff and proves me and many others wrong.

Sorry fellow buddie but I can't do a link from my iPad. I just keyed St Mirren into the YouTube search engine and it was about the fifth or sixth on the list with ladbrokes inside info in the title along with St Mirren and Thommo

This

It was probably done at the start of the season before the protracted injury. .

I definitely didn't think he was superb against Motherwell. It was his best performance but wasn't great - culminating with him putting the ball about 5 yards wide when through one on one with the keeper.

C'mon wake up and smell the awfy!

Rae is sticking him in the squad to get some mug punter somewhere to sign the wage-thieving git, and free up a new signing slot.

The Guy has turnd in ONE thirty minute spurt of football in TWO seasons so far.... Hello, that was someone getting the best out of him.

Every time I see this thread at the top of the pile I look in hoping to see he's been moved on and every time (so far) I've been disappointed.

Nothing against the player himself, it was Murray's mistake.

No players have played well under Murray.

Please don't be so hard on him. We knew he was always injured. Yet we signed him. And yes hes injured. Not his fault at all. Did his insurer pay his wages? We don't know, but if they did, we're happy :) Cos then he cost us nothing. Er. well, except the cost of the soap to wash his strips. Lol, not much then!

He started against annan away in the cup and his performance was shocking despite scoring. Worst player on the park imo

As much as he's been a disaster for us until now, if he's nearly now, it would be daft for Rae to move him on without having a proper look at him first. He'll want to asses every player himself and so he should.

He kind of admitted doing that to Ridgers though.

I bet Goodwin wont let Rae "asses" him while he can still draw breath! Thomas Reilly may well have been another story.
