Ask the pilot to keep you updated.

She did and when she said we lost the 2nd half 1 - 0  I thought since it is a woman pilot she won't know anything about football  :rolleyes:  Can't park a plane either since she ended up at a domestic stand instead of an international one :lol:  Shame we lost a goal but shit sometimes happen.

Enjoyable day in the capital. The ground felt like Kelburn cricket ground. A sports ground in the middle of a housing estate . Pretty surreal setting . Very professional performance today epitomised for me by McGinn running to get the ball out of glens Hutchinson robertsons stepeks net after our first goal . You could see we were well up for it after that , not that I doubted our commitment pre match .

Yeah next time we play shite and get beat we can see how many posts are on here moaning certain players did not try or give 100% does not matter the result the least we should expect is a team giving 100%.

Another gripe from the second half if we had not chucked it they would not have scored and we could have had a clean sheet. That could give confidence to our weakest part of the team



Not too sure what to say here. Are you complaining that we only won 7-1?

You must be new. Let me warn you, it gets a lot worse than this.

No I'm complaining about the total unprofessional display in the second half. We could have set a new club record. We could have built up some confidence in the defence by keeping a clean sheet.

Now we are back to having to score at least 2 goals to win a game as we can't keep a clean sheet against any opposition

I'm glad we are through to the next round, I'm Happy that we had a great first half totally professional

The thing I'm unhappy at is how we approached the second half.
Ask any supporter their honest opinion were they happy with the second half performance.

I would bet that the answer is no

My honest answer is that I am not fussed as we already scored 7 in the first half. 

At half time, when the game was completely done,  I'd have rather had 7-1 and 90 strong injury free minutes from out team, including Kyle and Harry than any other outcome.

Especially given that a couple of LTHV players - their left back in particular - seemed intent on leaving their mark on Saints players.

It depends on ehether you are only interested in winning or whether you believe you are paying to be entertained.

I have a lot of sympathy with your point here. I will never understand why players down tools just because the game is won.

I would always want to be ruthless to the end.

Before yesterday I looked up the stats of them and was surprised at what the figures showed my first thought was this has the potential of being  a  ( Banana skin). They have scored 54 goals this season , undefeated , Knocked out two senior clubs in the Scottish Cup East Fife at home after that they travelled  to Stirling the curent leaders of league 2 and put 5 past them to play us. So to put 7 past them in 45min and only lose 1 is impressive for me.

It's no wonder we were shite in the 2nd half most of the fans went to the pub at half time lol

Most Fans I spoke to were eagerly awaiting the 2nd half.Everyone was thinking they were going to be part of history in the making of a new record score.

Alas,they'd have been better going to the pub.:rolleyes:

Only when the big teams enter the draw. Our goals were on Sky Sports last night but not BBC go figure.

I think the BBC film the games but they appear on the sponsor's YouTube channel (W Hill esq).  No idea when they will appear.

Considering the stats presented by IOBS regarding their results in the cup this season, is it not possible, they had an absolute howler of a 1st half, came back out for a 2nd half after a rollocking & performed closer to their expected level?

 

I'd imagine playing for their pride & not conceding into double figures would have had considerable influence on stopping us play our game the way it was.

 

It is also possible, our teams game plan changed too with the game won already.
