Livingston v St Mirren 17th Feb

Recommended Posts

Away for an overnight stay in Pitlochry as it was a Christmas gift. Sounds like it was a good game to miss. 

Dad took the grand kids and left at half time due to some arseholes foaming at the mouth and slevering all sorts of obscenities over the top of them. Quiet word didn’t work and was only heading on one direction. Have experienced this a few times also, we really some inconsiderate wankers (small minority) in our support.

The attitude that you’re at the football what you expect is a pile of pish, you wouldn’t behave like that in Braehead with the wife. Pretty reasonable to expect grown men to tone it down if there’s a young kid sitting in the seat in front.  

Anyway, out for a beer and look forward to getting back on track next week.

Just back in the house we were outplayed and outfought by Livi no question about it.First and fourth goals were a comedy of errors schoolboy stuff to say the least.I don't believe we were properly prepared for this match in terms of allowing players holidays at this time of year.That would have been fine in they had gone to a training camp or similar.We were well of the pace today and the substitutions were awful.Why play with a five man defence. When we needed goals.Reilly and Smith are our main threat and they should have stayed on.Reverting to McKenzie at centre forward late on just typified what an utter shambles we were today.Much work to be done now and we need to get fitter organised and more focused and above all look at the opposition and set your team out accordingly.This was a wake up call of the highest order today.

Same as the first game I took the granddaughter to last season at Dundee United.

Unfortunately that'll be her last game.

FT 4-1

Not too surprised we’ve lost that after all that carry on during the week. Can’t have helped the preparations. Never expected a paddlin’ like that though.

Livi are clearly a decent side and could end up challenging us if they keep up their run of form.

Brechin at home next week, need to get 3 points there then keep the heed and get ourselves over the line.

Spot on. Never at it today. Mid week shenanigans from the manager took its toll.

We didn't play well, and Livingston were very good I thought. We struggled with the pitch and the sun in our eyes first half, and we were bullied all over the place. We really couldn't deal with the physicality at all. Shit happens, we've been gubbed a few times this season and bounced back. Need to get back on it next week, and I think we will.

Huge support through, seemed much more than 1000.
Looks like the 'break' didn't do us much good. No question that the Jack Ross shenanigans affected the team this week. Livvy bossed us all over the park. The ref did let them off with more than other refs might, but we didn't seem up for the fight. Pretty football wasn't the answer today, we had to put it about a bit like they did. We lost the battles all over the pitch. Watching our back 4 getting pulled around and bullied by a gutless mercenary like Hardie was hard to take. They were in a blind panic whenever he got the ball at his feet. Disappointing that we didn't compete in what was a 6 pointer in terms of league positions.
Hopefully just a bad day at the office and gives us the kick up the backside we need.
Today just reminds us all that we are St Mirren fans. We have been on a great run to be fair. Anything other than a win next week is unthinkable. Hopefully we come out all guns blazing and boost the confidence back up with a big score line.

Certainly looks interesting!  

Certainly intend to be there

Certain to be highly competitive. 

Not quite as certain of the outcome.

It was interesting!

I was there along with around 2,000 other Saint Mirren Fans.

Certainly was highly competitive,

After watching Livingston v Dunfermline there last week I had hoped for a draw.

Certainly knew it would be tough but didn't see 4-1 coming.

Moving on - Livingston play Dundee United next friday.

Something has to give then.

We were shocking today, maybe Liam Smith gets pass marks but no one else. Not much point in questioning the Reilly and Smith subs, neither kicked a ball all day. Too many errors and deserved win for Livvy,

Spoke to a steward who said they were told to expect 1200 Saints fans, thats why they only had three turn styles open at first. He estimated there were close to 2K Buddies there and said Paisley must be empty.

Bad day at the office.

Poor performance, which has happened every now a then. Crucially we've always bounced back strongly. Bizarre to suggest the performance has anything to do with the events midweek, unless you're suggesting our players lack the intelligence and character to pay their normal game.

Also can't say it's anything to do with players being given time off. Not sure how that would affect them, unless they'd been of from the day of the last game til the day before this one.

It's football, the players are human and can have an off day. They've not had many this season so I think we can allow them on today without trying to overanalyse it.

Back on the horse next week and get another three points in the bag.

Well, that was shite.

Bullied all over the park, and didn't seem focused at all after conceding a ridiculous first goal.

Terrible pitch, a team of hammer throwing opponents, and Ryan f**king Hardie playing against us as he never did for us all contributed, but no complaints at the outcome. The better side on the day won, no question of that. Time to regroup, and get back at it next week.

On our day our quick passing football is a joy to watch. But on a terrible pitch against more physical opposition we need alternatives. We need to be able to get stuck in and fight for everything. And we just don't seem to have those players in the squad. One defeat isn't a huge concern but a lack of variety in the squad is.

Not going to overreact but that was tommy Craig era bad! Absolutely toothless and clueless I hate sounding like a doom and gloom merchant but there is no way that team can survive the premiership. Ryan f**kin hardie strolling about like a world beater and nobody even gave him a mild kick really got to me! We Defo  need to  toughen up

Painful result to look at so glad I did not make it. Dust ourselves down move on. What's this Elvis has been writing regarding  Dundee United being two points behind us when did that happen.
