QOS v St Mirren Sat 18th March

Recommended Posts

Another great 3 points today , too many stand outs to mention . The turnaround since Jack Ross made his first signing is there for all to see . Well done Saints .
 

It's decent progress and now we are in with a solid chance of saving ourselves. As ever though fate conspired to produce results that railed against us today. Clearly we are a better team than our current last place but we need to dig ourselves out of a hole that's been dug by two years of utter ineptitude. We might just turn this, but I reckon we need 40 pts.

We'll see, at least we have belief and expectation restored. Jack Ross has shown his class and undoubtedly has a decent future in the game, hope its with us.

A great 3 points and while a wee bit disappointed at the other results that soon wore off. Rode our luck a bit in the first half but the 2nd was pretty comfortable.

Special mention for Kyle Magennis. He doesn't have as high a profile as Mallan or Morgan but he's a great player who hardly ever puts in anything but a good performance. I'd have him in the team every week.

What today's results show is that the home games we have against Ayr,Dumbarton and Raith are going to be tough,tough games.

Some people seem to think it's a guaranteed 9 points.

Anyway, great result today. Is the pitch invader spending the weekend in Dumfries? ? ?

Someone said to me at halftime that he had Mallan for 1st goal . They also said he ran on the pitch with his bookie slip in hand . If there's any truth to this , which I doubt , I imagine the bookie slip has now been lost on his wee trip to the cop shop ( in the pollis pocket ) . Quite funny .

How much is a return from North Berwick? Good effort bud.

£43.10.  On final leg back home after 6 pubs in Dumfries. A party train to Newcastle to get a return from Carlisle to Edinburgh. Well done the saints shame about the other results but we're still in it. Should be in NB for a pint by 9.30pm planning for the cup final next week.

The guy managed to make it back into the crowd, down one of the tunnels, through the doors and out of the ground! Unfortunately for him he was dragged back by the stewards 30 seconds later.

Let's hope our escape attempt is slightly more successful.

Some one did run on the park when Mallon scored

A lot could happen yet. Tough time ahead but hope springs eternal until the arithmetic says otherwise.

Dreadful first 30 mins today, really nervous and we struggled on the fake grass. 

Changed shape and moved Magennis infield to give extra man in the centre of the park and it really helped. 

2nd half we were dominant and got the ball down and played some tidy stuff. Mallan, Magennis and McGinn ran the show in midfield. 

MOTM had to be Lewis Morgan though. Great direct play, thought he was outstanding in the 2nd half. 

Grat support who are 100% behind the team and Jack Ross. Even when players made mistakes they were cheering trying to lift them, tremendous backing today.

Edited because we don't have a Kyle McGennis.

As above Davidg. Couldn't believe we went in ahead at half time.

Second half was much more comfortable and fans were brilliant, as were Morgan, Mallan and McGinn.

Long way to go but the clubs 'marketing team' should be trying to fill the stadium for the Ayr and Dumbarton games in particular. We are on a roll!

Great fun today. :o

Due to family/work balance have only managed about 25% of matches last few seasons but felt the last few weeks to make a concerted effort to attend as (Every Little Helps) in terms of supporting the team.

Managed to make 5 of last 6 only missed Hibs game but really think this is a joint effort from players, management and fans we all seem to be as one at the minute.

It's a journey I'm glad to be part of but know that there will be a Raith Rovers type result/performance somewhere along the next few weeks(during first half today thought it might be today).

Quick mention to Lewis Morgan on his performance today absolutely outstanding.

Any Saints fans not at game have a look at QOTS match report on their official website very complimentary on our support,Morgan and Saints in general.

If we survive this season, those of us who stayed supportive during the dark days will have many proud and happy memories of doing our part to help the team.

I think this is right.......but i didnt appreciate we still have at least 9th place still in our own hands........i thought we were dependant on others.

If Ayr and Dumbarton draw next week we are 2 points off ayr with same games played. so if we beat them when we play them and then equal or better results in remaining games we are ok. IF a draw we are 5 pnts behind dumbarton with a game in hand and still to play them.

 

If ayr win then it means dumbarton just 4 ahead and we have the game in hand. ayr still catchable if they drop points in their game in hand against dundee utd away.

If dumbarton win then ayr now can be overtaken when we play them.

So its all good now?........or have i missed something

 

 

 

 

We still have up to 7th in our own hands I believe. Remember most of those sides in the mix with us still have to play each other, so one or both must drop points in several matches to come.

Campbell will hold a dinner, but in reality we should be pushing these tickets big time especially with the added footfall for cup final tickets. 

Do a 2 game package or 3 games if you had included the cup final. But Saints and marketing doesn't really happen. We will give away 2000 free tickets and the atmosphere will be like a morgue.
