St.Ricky

St Mirren v Motherwell 6th Feb 2019

Recommended Posts

We’re still making the same errors; fail to defend set pieces, corners, throw-ins, track runners, show men outside, etc.

We also seriously look like we lack a game plan - would be interesting to see our training - the blame for the tactics lies at one door alone i’m afraid, as much as many don’t want to admit it...

Having said that several players phoned it in, shame on them - the 2 wingers chucked it, Nazon didn’t look like he’d seen a football before and Tansey... well, that 20/30 sec comedy show in the middle of the park at the end says it all. 

Troubling times.

Any one think Oran might quit after we get hammered on Saturday. As a matter of interest are we still in the running for the lowest points total ever in this league.

Tonight is the kind of game that we need to pick up points and build a bit of belief and momentum. Chance missed again and worrying momentum to Accies and Dundee. Agree that the season isn’t over, even if it feels like it just now, but we are looking favourites for the drop. We’ve really made an arse of this season so far.

I think the depressing part is Dundee and Accies new strikers both scored doubles tonight. We look really disjointed from back to front tonight and completely bereft of confidence.

Their first goal was an absolute belter, their second was a shambles, runner not picked up and allowed a free header while surrounded by our defence who at the time look to be playing Statues. Pish poor yet again, our midfield was pretty anonymous the second half.

Just give the job to Gus now ffs. Should have done that 6 months ago.
I do hope that's joke. Things are bad enough. And remember the new players that have came he's the one who recommends them. He's director of football. He couldn't direct a seal to water.

Motherwell are a nice mix of pace, decent players and thugs. Two cracking goals and a lesson on how to play on the break. Beat by a well drilled team. We don't have anything up front, weak in the midfield and accident prone at the back. Doesn't look good.

Agree with this. ^^^^^

Our team has no presence and no identity. Our players look weak compared to other teams, probably a combination of lack of belief and  regular team time together. The hope that loans and relative strangers can bond and enable us to survive is very doubtful.

It’s a continual and repeating disappointment that Saints seem incapable of turning into something robust, efficient and strong as say a Motherwell. or St Johnstone. We just don’t seem to have the nous, a plan and the strategy  to survive and prosper in this brutal  shitfest of league. 

We look like a pension top up plan for auld hands and former chugging coaches, only strategy I can see. It’s a truly woeful state of affairs.

Bring on the razzmatazz of the Championship where we win some games and play with a smile.

Well that was shit. Since the Kilmarnock game we have been playing 3 at the back and lost every game. We don't have the players for 3 at the back so why do we continue to play it when the opposition, including Alloa, are ripping the pish down our flanks? Motherwell had 3 men up top against our 3 and the for the first goal the Well player had no opposition. We change it when we are already a goal down and take off a fast and fit Baird and leave Anton on the park. That was the second big mistake.

The keeper and Popescu look excellent but the rest of the new signings look way off the mark. Dreyer looked like a wee lost boy tonight. I have no longer any hope we will stay up on that performance.

In what way am I not showing respect to my fellow supporters?
I used to attend every game home and away (excluding visits to the Bigotdomes) before I moved down south. I know exactly what it’s like to follow a team who lose more games than they win. I always appreciate those who do the same, they are the heart and soul of this club.
Just because I use the word “knickerwetters” upon seeing those deciding the season is over when we are not yet cut adrift, and still happen to be in Scottish Cup too, that now means I have no respect for others?
But not to be at the games now and call fans who are at the game knickerwetters is wrong. Cos we are utter dross at mo. If that makes me a knickerwetter sobeit. And I do go every week.

The first was also a shambles albeit a great finish in off the bar.
This was the 3rd or 4th time in the first 10 minutes that we hadn't closed players down.

Too many non existent players with no fight or passion.

You wouldn’t have known Lyons, Dreyer, Tansey were on the pitch and Nazon hardly touched the ball. To think we got rid of Cammy and replaced him with this dross.

That tonight was us throwing everything at them. 2 wingers, 2 strikers and they dealt with us as if it was a training exercise. Appalling

Exactly...It's his team so it would be a smooth transition. Nobody could label it not being his team against him.

Midfield = Stephen McGinn that's it who is half fit

5 at the back for a must win at home not good enough

Dundee penalty miss is just delaying things.

Hamilton get the new manager bounce from us

The BOD have fell asleep since last April and now have paid a costly price

Because he's a big part of the reason we're in this mess.......... Director of football.....FFS..:lol:

How is it his fault that Kearney can't seem to motivate the players, get his tactics right, get his in-game management right or pick the right team from the start?

Enough is enough please just book your one way ticket to Belfast and go Oran. God knows why you were ever appointed, clearly not up to the job and woefully out of your depth, the board really have a lot to answer to with 2 dreadful managerial appointments in a row.I really don't see where our next league win is coming from, given that we have Aberdeen and Hearts away in next 2 games, not exactly happy hunting grounds for us even with a half decent team unlike this bunch of amatuers.. Footnote to this is who the hell is scouting for Saints at present, on recent showing what we have brought in is even worse than what we had before if that's possible. Neil Lennon for Manager until end of season??? Highly unlikely and probably not too popular with some fans but I bet he would boot a few backsides in that hopeless bunch of imposters we have guising as 1st team players at present.

Sadly it looks like the great escape of two years ago isn't likely to repeat itself. Oran made a major error in setting us up with three at the back, when they play a front three, two of whom are rapid. They just overloaded the wings and we couldn't cope. To be fair, he did realise his mistake and changed it, but by that time we were already a goal down.

We lost that game because we kept on making wrong decisions. Individually, i think some of the new players look decent, but the team isn't gelling yet, going by tonight i don't know if it will. 

I like Oran, but if he can't get this team to gel and we go down, sad as it is to say there isn't really a case to keep a manager who will have had 34 games to keep us up.

Mr MacPherson brings the players in. The reason is he's GLS golfing bud. So we're paying him a wage to watch YouTube

What are people really expecting, have signed guys who play at un23 level and no real first team experience, foreigners who haven't played in months..Tansey no played for how long, a striker who has hardly ever played and expect these nomads to get us out of this, total bull-shit...Kearneys team my arse, you think he scouted or watched any of them? No chance, another exprement gone badly wrong...and if everybody being honest 1st division is where Saints belong and fans enjoy it far better...
