I can get 100% of 50% of this match prediction right...…………….. Motherwell ? St Mirren 0

I don't see how Motherwell can possibly score ?

When was the last time they did that?  :unsure:

I'm confident that we can win this 3-2.

That is, as long as we get 3 own goals, or 3+ penalties, or some permutation of the above.

If Motherwell get 3 or 4 sent off we have a chance of scoring 3 goals..................................wait, no we don't.

No doubt JG has to start getting the balance right, away to an middling Top Flight  team might suit us - let's hope so!

 

COYS! 

I think there are considerable doubts.

If you call keeping things tight, but mainly losing, and couldn't score in a brothel the right balance then we are only heading for another relegation battle that we might not get as lucky as last season.

Just got a little semi thinking about this 3-2 victory from May 2007!

Motherwell 2-3 St Mirren
St Mirren celebrate a wonderful comeback at Fir Park
St Mirren celebrate a wonderful comeback at Fir Park
St Mirren staged a wonderful comeback to sink Motherwell at Fir Park but defeat for Dunfermline means both sides will stay in the Premier League.

A Ross McCormack diving header was the highlight of a dire first half.

Well's McCormack then tucked in a penalty early in the second half before the Buddies came roaring back.

Goalkeeper Colin Meldrum let a John Sutton header through his legs before Billy Mehmet levelled with a cool shot and Sutton cracked in a late volley.

 

 

Motherwell manager Maurice Malpas made seven changes following Monday night's thrashing at Dunfermline.

Meldrum returned, while their were recalls for Willie Kinniburgh, Marc Fitzpatrick, Steven McGarry, Paul Keegan, Kevin McBride and McCormack.

The visitors were unchanged after their good win at Tannadice last weekend.

A nervous start saw both sides making a number of mistakes, with passes regularly going astray.

Motherwell were first to threaten when a Krisztian Vadocz shot was headed clear by John Potter and McGarry almost got on the end of McBride's cross before goalkeeper Chris Smith took control.

The visitors were struggling to make any attacking impact and Stewart Kean's shot on the turn from a difficult angle that flashed wide was the closest Saints came in a dismal first half.

Seven minutes short of the interval, the home side went ahead when McCormack grabbed his first SPL goal for the club.

The former Rangers striker flew in to head home after McBride had nodded Keegan's cross into the six-yard box.

McCormack bagged his second goal of the afternoon with a penalty early in the second half.

Veteran defender Andy Millen was penalised for a foolish handball and the Well forward smashed his spot-kick past Smith.

The Buddies responded by throwing on strikers Sutton and Mehmet and both substitutes found the net within four minutes of their arrival.

Sutton's weak header from an Alan Reid cross somehow slipped through Meldrum's fingers and his legs.

And Mehmet levelled with a composed finish after latching on to a long throw-in from Kirk Broadfoot.

McCormack came close to his hat-trick with a delightful lob but Smith scrambled back to tip the ball over the crossbar.

The lively Well striker then saw his fierce rising strike pushed away by the St Mirren keeper and later flashed another shot narrowly wide.

As play raged on at a rapid rate of knot, Sutton hit crossbar before blazing a great volley high into the net on 83 minutes to seal a memorable win.

 


Motherwell: Meldrum, Corrigan, Craigan, Kinniburgh, Quinn, McBride, Fitzpatrick, Vadocz, McGarry (McLean 63), McCormack, Keegan (Clarkson 79). Subs Not Used: Graeme Smith, Kerr, Darren Smith, Connolly, Jamie Murphy.

Booked: Quinn, Corrigan.

Goals: McCormack 38, 49 pen.

St Mirren: Smith, van Zanten, Potter, Broadfoot, Maxwell, Corcoran, Murray, Millen (Sutton 54), Reid, Kean, Burke (Mehmet 54). Subs Not Used: Hinchcliffe, Brady, Mackay, McKenna, McGinn.

Booked: Broadfoot.

Goals: Sutton 56, Mehmet 59, Sutton 84.

Att: 9,277

If Motherwell have 3 or 4 sent off we might be able to scrape a 1-0 victory.

The problem is that is 3 or 4 less Motherwell players who can score an own goal for us.

Could any doctor in Stirling pay this fool a visit, he's on the edge. :1eye

I doubt any doctor would be willing to take the blame. Pricky is terminally stupid.

I must admit I quite enjoy most of the banter on here, albeit that it swerves away from the thread title at time.

Talking about football all the time would be incredibly dull, especially St Mirren. ha.

Most isn't any real harm, we're all adults and can handle some banter, I could even handle some keyboard hard men, seen plenty in the factories I've worked in.

Anyway, hi ho, need to work soon, another hard night in store.
