St Mirren v the West Lothian criminals

Recommended Posts

For me the big talking point was at half time when a  complete nugget starting shouting at the young girls selling pies because the other que was faster than his! Honestly, the guy was in his 50s. Probably on here tonight (Mr Angry)

Flynn has totally proved me wrong last few weeks. I had him down as a heartless mouse. Seems he was maybe just low on confidence but fair play to the guy, been like a new signing in our still problem area which is midfield. Captain McGinn done well but sure he is not 100% fit. Can't fault his attitude though, he is a Saints man through and through imo.
 

Me too.

Absolutely delighted to be proved wrong about Flynn.

A different player to the one I saw a month ago.

Let's hope it continues.

The celebration of the goal was FANtastic,the noise was deafening.One minute we're sitting getting soaked,in the Main Stand,the next minute an earthquake wouldn't have bothered us.

A draw would probably have been a fair result........which makes the win even better.

The look on the faces of the Livy mob as they trooped off made it the perfect day. :clapping

Met Sephiroth at half time(some of the older forum members will remember him.Long black,leather coat) and he was telling me he's getting married in June.Still looks the same...........except for the 2 stone he has put on. :shockaroony:lol:

Had to go home to get changed after the game.Last time I seen rain like that at the fitba was the B+Q Cup Final v Falkirk.

What the actual f**k are you going on about you absolute f**kin* tool ?
Why don’t you just admit you made a silly mistake and have a laugh at your own stupidity ? Everyone else is !

CG.  Language dear boy.  Be magnanimous. 

Chill.  Enjoy having secured 3 points.

And I ignore you dear boy. It's the right thing to do with what you write. It tends towards the standard regurgitation of old fashioned and spiteful comments which ultimately decry a player. Our team, another team, one of their players or a match official. Predictable in the extreme but it's your right to post it.

3 points is all that mattered today and it puts a bit more pressure on Dundee and Hamilton. It made my day and I don't care less about how it was achieved.

Dani, I don’t know if you were at the game today, but if you weren’t, don’t listen to the 3 or 4 nuggets on here who said we played badly. We didn’t.

I was so delighted to hear the winning goal and final whistle on my wee radio.....away round there in remote part of Southend.

With respect to other forum members, arguments on here about which team played better yesterday are irrelevant. We desperately need POINTS, and we got three yesterday in some of the worst weather most of us have seen for many years. Livy clearly came for a draw but our lads deserve huge credit for fighting right to the end of the game and still having enough grit and spirit to score a winner at the death. Main concern is still the inability of our frontmen to score. We had chances earlier in the game but were not able to convert them into goals. If our strikers don't improve immediately I fear we will be found out by Killie and St. Johnstone in the next two games.

Great credit also to the fans who turned up yesterday and stayed right till the end. As for the lads in W7. How good is it to see them perform like this instead of the controversy they were involved in a few weeks back? 

As someone above said, we need everyone, players, fans and management, pulling together in the next few weeks if we're to have any chance of surviving in this league. So let's get behind the team and......

COYS!!

Have to agree HSS, the noise was deafening. Like Party Polotics said, I too found myself looking to the linesman and as soon as I realised the goal definitely stood it was bonkers time. My poor wee nephew got launched about 10 feet in the air! :lol:.

Looking across at the lads in W7 was superb. Absolute scenes.

No we didnt play badly added to fact we played first half into a 35 mph wind and rain. Getting to HT level was some feet. We fought hard all over the park...good changes by OK and the perfect times. Livi manager thought they should have got ONE point......stats and result say otherwise....

Ufff, surely time to introduce some better moderation on this forum? Stick these fuds in the sin bin that just want to insult players & other posters on here.

The main thing from yesterday is we picked up a vital three points. The defence looks solid, and we ground out a victory. Grinding out a few ugly wins is exactly what is needed to avoid relegation. Ask Big Sam......or Wee Gus!

Kearney summed it up well after the game;

Quote

"I told the players it wasn’t pretty, it was ugly, but we got three points and they should get ready for another ten games like this. That is what this time of the season is all about."

 

We do need to be honest and admit the performance wasn't great. We struggled to get any passing movements going forwards, and thats mainly down to lack of quality with certain players causing moves to break down.

We will need very good luck with injuries in order to stay up. McAllister, Lyons and Magennis would all be major improvements on the starting line-up today.

Our main problem is that Kearney wants to use Nazron to play long ball, but the duck isn't showing anything to suggest he is good enough to get us goals. He had plenty of space today and a few good chances, a decent striker would have put a couple away. Simeon Jackson is a much better player but doesn't have the strength to hold the ball up like the duck. If we can keep the ball on the deck though he is much more dangerous, as shown by our winner! Dreyer was a complete passenger, looks very lightweight. We've got to hope McAllister stays fit! If not, then Lyons can hopefully play that role.

The second big problem is that we haven't got a proper left back. Erhanon would surely have been a better option than MacPherson in the middle of the park today, but he is stuck out at left back where he is doing his best but not really able to create much going forward. 

The defence is much more solid now though. Earlier in the season we would have lost a goal to a corner or free kick and not taken three points. Popescu is on his way to winning player of the season. Baird put in a good shift. Flynn protected the defence well, and got himself up the park in the last minute for the goal, well played!

We are back in with a shout of moving up the table. I hope Kearney works on a system to get Jackson back leading the line for this next round of games.

The good thing about yesterday was the way we stood up to the aerial threat, they had loads of set pieces especially in the first half and only created one genuine chance from them. Still think we can play much better, but a lot of that was down to the weather.

No mate I didn't make the game as I had to fly back home as the match kicked off. When I flew over the stadium at 3pm in sheeting rain I felt for the Buddies down below.
The point is at this stage of the season it doesn't matter how we win and negative views on a victory are strange to say the least. I want St Mirren to play exciting expansive football but I'm not going to get hamstrung about winning ugly. Hope you had a great night out on the town celebrating after the game bud.

Surprised so many are criticising the performance. First half we played into the wind and we still didn’t give much away.2nd half the conditions were atrocious. We done well to dig in against a well drilled team

I’ve probably been been one of his biggest critics but today I thought Ryan Flynn put in a lot of graft and took the goal well.

McGinn looked really immobile, definitely not 100%

Fantastic win and 5 points from the last 3 games is great going.

Possibly, but didn't help that nearly every time he tried to pass the ball a Livi player was kicking lumps out him, and not getting the fouls. I actually thought he played alright, especially if not 100%
