Until our first goal I watched two nervous teams. After our first goal St Mirren were the better team by quite some distance.  EDIT Just checked the game stats on BBC. St Johnstone had 2 shoots on target whe whole game. 

Pretty much how I saw the game . Thought we were set up not to lose today . Broadfoot probably our best player , though there were a few decent performers , Flynn won't walk straight back into the team when he returns , he will have to sit on the bench and wait for his chance , the same way Stephen McGinn had to . I do though think Flynn will be excellent coming off the bench and supporting the midfield . Great result , onwards and upwards .

Four up..? Behave yourself. We scored against thr run of play, then improved as the fakes weakened. Like I said the good news is there is at least one team worse than us currently.
Let's see what we get from Killie, Celtic and an improved Hearts.

Oh right we won because St Johnstone were bad here was me thinking over the 90min we were the better team. Thank you for pointing that out. On a more serious note. Why not enjoy the win after all they dont come along as often as we like.

I think we won because of both these points.

Doesn’t seem to get much attention but I thought McLoughlin was excellent today. Great player.

Agreed, I saw him doing his Sunday shop earlier, in and out in 15 minutes, no drama, no f**king about.

Facetiousness aside though, I agree. He was excellent yesterday. He took a bit of stick after the Livi and Ross County games but he's looked good since.

FFS HSS, has LPM stolen your login?

That game could not have been further from fitting the description “victory from the jaws of defeat”. At what point in that match were we even remotely close to the jaws of defeat?

We survived 2 or 3 half decent chances in the first half hour, scored and then totally dominated the rest of the match against an utterly guff team.. We were 2-0 up and cruising with half an hour to go FFS. 🤣

Indeed, as I pointed out yesterday at HT, St.J had a couple of half chances, that, bar one fairly routine save, didn't even trouble Hladky.

Against Motherwell, we couldn't have complained if we had been three or four down at half time, as we were torn a new one. Yesterday, was entirely different.

Best outfield player at the club. Great future ahead of him and no surprise that he is with a English Championship club on long term deal. I think he's good enough for the Championship already and doubt we will have him  post Jan

S McGinn in the first half saw most of his passes go either square or back with precious little going forward.  Certainly improved in the second half.  I thought when Morias came on he played the best game so far as he was a constant threat on the left providing decent and dangerous crosses.

I hope all those who in the past discounted Mullen as a goalscorer will now give the guy some credit.

100% Mullen can hit a ball sweetly with the right balls he will score. My number one striker works his cotton socks off.

The first goal was always going to crucial with two teams understandably low on confidence. We got it and went on to win comfortably. St Johnstone may well play worse than they did in the first half next week and win.

FWIW for all those bizarrely wishing to overlook McGinn’s contribution I suggest going back and watching the 90 mins again. After a quiet opening 30 mins (as with the rest of the team) he played a significant role working the ball through the middle and was always available to take it from the defence. He also didn’t give possession away once.

I liked the balance between him and Foley (who seemed to get further upfield yesterday) and this will give Goodwin a nice selection headache for next week if Flynn is fit.

If there is any chance whatsoever of extending his loan till the end of the season, I'd be doing everything possible to make that happen.

Surely it benefits him and his parent club to have regular play at a top level?

He is a find.

So much so, Popescu isn't missed!

He was superb yesterday. Solid.

Depends on the player and his home club of course, then us. I'd expect as he is playing each week he is likely to want to stay on. His club have to decide if he is making progress or whether they can improve him more back at their place or out on loan elsewhere, but overall, unless we have another CB lined up for coming in during January, it is looking like we will want him to stay on.

He's had a couple of ropey games, but is usually very good and adds something all over the park . . .  :bounce2

Me too, I think he'll do well when he goes back to Hull. He's a much better standard of player than guys like Lyons, Jones, Willock and Dreyer and other guys we've had on loan from similar teams.

Who is not enjoying the win. Ffs get a grip. Even the manager Is saying "don't get carried away" with beating the fakes, they are currently as far as we know the only team worse than us.

Hibs and Hearts are currently worse than us also.

Carried away ? Seriously? We won a game it could be a wee while before the next one. You be miserable I'm savouring the moment. Half full glass.

If I'd been given a fiver to bet on any of the 2 teams to win at 29 mins it would have went on an away win.Im sure most people would've been the same.

I'm delighted I would've lost my fiver.

Honestly its total delusion. McGinn being in the team today had heehaw to do with us winning. We were the poorer side in the first half. The second half was different all over the pitch and the goal gave us a massive lift. Obika started to look like what he had been brought to the club for and the confidence in his game started to show. The second goal from Mullen was class but he looked poor in the first half much better in the second. Morais looked more positive too, probably to do with the fact that we were on the front foot against a very poor St J side who lacked fight and passion.

There is no way that dropping Ryan Flynn for McGinn  is the way forward. I wouldn't drop Andreu either for him. Back on the bench Stephen and step in when needed, that's his role this season.

Comical

You’re spot on bud. When everyone is fit Flynn plays, no doubt.

 

‘Captain fantastic’ is a decent reserve.

Much better yesterday - bit of confidence, bit of luck and it all came together.

Obika linked up better as the game went on, Mullen proving his worth yet again and Morias even looked dangerous coming on.

Stephen McGinn and Kirk Broadfoot - the kind of players every team needs. Experienced, played at a high level (and it shows), leaders, passionate. 

For those who are struggling a bit with the concept, when they 2 are fit and on the park - we're a better team.

St Johnstone are a poor, poor team but we looked very comfortable yesterday.

My fiver might have gone on the same team, but we absolutely didnae clutch victory from the jaws of defeat. I don’t deny St. Johnstone had the better of the chances in the first half hour.

The two positives to take from yesterday were a precious three points, and the fact that at least one team are currently worse than us.

We could have lost it in the first half if the fakes had their shooting boots on.

We will have to be markedly better against every other team in the league.

Pleased with the points, move to next week.

A clean sheet is also a positive.

 

Although they had chances before we scored I wouldn't say they were clear cut. I thought their best chance was at 2-0 when May rolled our defender and fluffed his shot from about 10 metres out.
