Ross County v Saints, Sat 14th September

Recommended Posts

I was feeling quietly confident when I saw the squad Goodwin was putting together, but that confidence it being worn away witch each passing game, I'm afraid.  Don't see many goals in the forwards and the defence is still full of holes. Another frustrating season coming up on current evidence.

The strikers are good players but they always come short we need someone to make runs in behind the defence. They had two real chances and scored both. At the moment we are not clinical enough. I’d like to see the offside goal again couldn’t tell from where I was standing.

we'll never win wearing these stupid f**king strips.
They put us on a downer from the word go


Don’t like the away strip either. Shouldn’t affect them on the pitch though. Why we weren’t playing in our stripes when they play in dark blue is beyond me...

Said it before and say it again, obika and junior rotten,and wont score us goals to move up league, am not wee mullans greatest fan,but I'd have him every week before these 2 disasters.and a don't get any satisfaction saying this,Goodwin has to start using squad rotation as this same starting 11 every week not working or winning 

Said from day 1 these 2 were rotten!

I read an interview with Steven Gerrard where he was saying tht all the empty seats on TV makes the image of Scottish football look pish. 

He suggested using better camera angles to hide the empty seats. Looks like Ross County are going out of their way to make the place look empty with their placement of the away fans.

Wasn't at the game. Watched on TV. Still don't understand why it was ruled off.

We are going backwards, Magennis class, McAllister posted missing again, Broadfoot cant jump, too slow and ponderous in our build up, Obika now missed 2/3 tap ins, Morais doesnt know how to play the game here. Fail to beat Hamilton and we will stay bottom/second bottom for the season. Hoping Hearts hang on to Avril till at least January.

Just watched on alba. 

Nowhere near good enough going forward and got what we deserved. 

In many ways it’s the easy thing to play the big teams when we have no expectation - sit in, difficult to beat, hit them on the counter attack. No major criticism if you don’t take anything. 

The real test is the games that we really need to take wins from. Livi, County, Hamilton, St.Johnstone, Motherwell and maybe Hearts/Hibs/Killie depending on how good/bad a season they have. 

Performances so far in those tests - nowhere near good enough. 

Goodwin has a lot of work to do to build a capable, attacking outfit that can damage an opposition who are quite happy to sit in against us.

Just watched on Alba. Looked really, really windy.

Both our strikers rank rotten sadly. Magennis very good and Hladkey as usual. Hope we bring McGinn and Mullin back next week as it is fast becoming a must win game. Zero points from Livvy and Ross C make zero points from Hamliton at home unthinkable.

Jim Goodwin never off the radio and TV just now, maybe just needs to concentrate more on getting points.

Reasonable summary. Magennis was excellent. Hit the woodwork twice. Forwards yet to get going. Goal ruled out looked OK to me I have to say though. Late sucker punch felled us in the 3rd minute of extra time. Any news on the injury to Mackenzie?

Mentioned this after the Rangers game. 

Plenty we're happy with a narrow defeat, ignoring the fact Rangers were poor that day and we gifted them the game by sitting in for around 80 minutes.

Since then we've lost to teams that are going to be teams we hoped to be above.

Already starting to have that shit feeling it's going to be like last season. 

Just as well we took our time and signed quality. 🤣

Now, I like Goodwin and he really is turned on to succeed and I've given him some leeway up to now but there is one prominent question I'd like an answer to and that is: why hasn't our top goal scorer from last season, Danny Mullen, not been given a reasonable time to perform?

Are you the man who started the Oran Must go thread? A man of little judgement.
