St Mirren v Hamilton Mon 13th May

Recommended Posts


We have to go for it , and whilst one nil will do , I would rather we were up and at them from the start .

For me it's as back five , with G Mac given instructions to be in the top third every time we have a free kick , long shy , corner . I would even consider sticking him on the wing at kick off and having a high ball aimed at him .Popescu,s long throw should also be maximised . 

Would have Magennis , Flynn and McGinn in midfield who can all run with the ball .

Up front is a hard one to call . But it might make sense to give Cody Cooke his moment and play him alongside Jackson .

Would have the team playing route one football to start off with . 

That would give us McAllister , Lyons , The Duck ,  and Mullen who can come on and change things if necessary .

The worse case scenario for this game is we stay in  the play off place , which is where we are , so I think it makes sense to have a go early doors .

Cannot disagree with you sentiment - we have far less to lose than we can gain...

Oran has not gone for it from the off yet - so I'd be surprised if his game plan is not "let's keep it tight for the 1st 10 minutes" at least to get settled in - for we can lose the opportunity to gain if we give up goals to them while we are attacking... Like you though, I believe that if we were to get the early goal, it completely changes their game-plan and they have to come out more - so long as we don't sit back on a 1 goal lead, we must push for more.

However, we need to be less predictable and go for it with sufficient cover to contain them.

They are not a good side, just physical - we must give them a beating - the entire club wants these 3 points -    C  O  Y   S

Mullen & Cooke for me;
Not overloaded with technical ability as a strikeforce but they at least have a bit of fight about them and make the correct decisions on occasion... 
And it's one combination I don't believe we've tried yet. 
Nazon is Goncalves with 2 left feet ie; lazy and enigmatic without any positive return.
I'd be hesitant to call Jackson a footballer - the words hee and haw come to mind.

Isma was light years better than Nazon, night and day, no comparison.

Uhu... hence 2 left feet, pretty obvious that was my point i'd have thought?

On watching Hamilton last week against Dundee they look a better side than Saints...

Did you have your Eeyore specs on - most teams have looked good against Dundee recently.

I'd say since we started to gel back in late February we've been fairly similar to Hamilton, defensively minded (good ol' Gus :rolleyes: ) and lacking a cutting edge (their top scorer Miller has 5, 1 less than Jackson has for us). We looked better than them, last month, up until we got to the penalty box anyway.

Won't be easy or pretty on Monday night but there's no need to build them (or Rice) up beyond their actual abilities. If anything the form book favours us slightly although for a game of this magnitude it's really about which team holds it's nerve.

Nothing to fear, let's give it 110% and as ever COYS1

St Johnstone's just secured 7th place, let's hope they don't go into holiday mode just yet...

 

I'm convinced we'll beat Accies, can only hope those lovely Perth chappies fancy some extra win bonuses for 

there summer hols....

Shame about that result.

If we beat Hamilton then even a draw for them against St. Johnstone will not be enough for them if we beat Dundee.

They'll want us to stay up as we bring a good away support - something Accies can only dream about.

On holiday in the States. Any idea how I can stream the game? Appreciate any suggestions.

Don't know how the Mobdro app is performing lately, but it might be worth a bash. I watched a perfect stream of the 0-0 game with Celtic on it from the States.

Therefore

1. If we beat Hamilton and Dee we gain 6 points.

2. We are currently 4 points behind Hamilton.    SO

3. If they draw their last game - They will end up 1 point behind us given 1 & 2....   :guinness

I am not convinced by your maths.
1. If we beat Hamilton and Dee we gain 6 points.
2. We are currently 4 points behind Hamilton.    SO
3. If they draw their last game - surely they will end up 1 point behind us given 1 & 2....   :guinness

Sadly I feel its the play off for us. Just can't see us getting the points and Hamilton losing both games. However I do live in hope. 

Out of our hands anyway..even if we beat Hamilton on Monday if they win following week we are in play-offs......bit of anti-climax to end of season...

A literal must win game for us then.

Read a few people saying we are in good form. Are we? We have won 3 league games out of our 19 since Christmas. Those 3 wins came against 2 opponents; Dundee and Livi. That’s pretty brutal form by any reasonable measure.

Our only win in our last 5 came when Livi got their best player and captain sent off after 15 minutes, and even then we had to come from behind. Granted we have been drawing games recently instead of losing them, but a point is no use to us here.

Despite this hopeless form we actually have a better record against the other 10 teams in the league than Accies do. The reason we are staring down the playoff barrel is Hamilton have our number in the head to heads, and not just this season.

Since August 2014 we’ve played them 8 times. Won 1, drawn 1, lost 6.

Doesn’t exactly fill you with confidence. Of course it’s a funny old game and we may still win, but I think it’s fair to say we probably... won’t. However, if Accies could do us a favour and get their best player sent off after 15 minutes then I’d certainly fancy us.

No point in us even thinking about possible final day permutations until the final whistle blows.

I’ll go for another 1-1 and all aboard the playoff train to Inverness or Dundee on a Thursday night, I can’t wait.
