St.Ricky

St Mirren v Kilmarnock 29. 12.19

Recommended Posts




FT 1-0

Second half was all St Mirren really, we missed several good chances and should have won by more in the end. Kept waiting for a Killie onslaught that never arrived, they were awful. That’s them just 4 points above us now, they look very catchable on today’s showing.

Been a pretty decent December for us, certainly much improvement on last term. This time last season we had just lost 2-1 to Killie and were in 11th on 12 points, saved from bottom by the remarkable shiteness of Dundee. This year we are 10th with 19 points.

Goody is doing a great job and if we have a half decent January window we will be fine. Would love to keep a hold of McLoughlin in particular, he’s brilliant.

Great result today but it could have been so much easier. Obika and morias made great contributions but just don't look like strikers. Makeshift back four did really well. Cammy had a mixed game, great ball winning but poor passing. We give the ball away too easily and don't compete enough at times for 50:50 balls. However the goal was fantastic and with a true goalscorer we would have been out of sight today. Well done saints for sending everyone home happy especially given Hamilton result

Great hard working win today. Goody has got them grafting hard for the points we get. But massive shout out for Sam Foley what a performance at centre half. Never put a foot wrong. MOM by a mile. Andreu. Flynn had great games. Morias and Obika worked really hard upfront. But we still need a goalscorer. But no failures today. But Foley deserves his win bonus. Coys.

I thought we were brilliant today on the 50:50 balls and won most second ball. I know what you mean about Obika and Morias as gosl scorers but they were both excellent today.

Agree also, thought we competed better than usual today.

Not really a failure out there today. Shout out to Foley, McGinn and Flynn all out of position. MacPherson great again in centre, McLoughlin good at the back also. Tony had a quiet game but tidy play for the goal, he has that quality to decide a game.

We're hit or miss down the flanks and none of our wingers have really nailed down a spot but big credit today to Junior and Durmus - we are a very tidy team when we have an outball.

A great shift from everyone in the team today. 19 shots at goal, 5 on target, two great saves by the Killie Keeper.

I thought the team were excellent today, especially Flynn and Foley given they were playing out of position. Had all the hallmarks of us missing a barrowload of chances and then Killie stealing a point, glad it didn't turn out like that.

Killie look very poor though, five losses in a row, if they don't get their next managerial appointment right they are in the relegation mix.

100% agree and said it a number of times on this forum, for me at his age and potential the best player at the club. Hull have a real talent on their hands. Hopefully Goodie can work his magic with his mates at Hull for second part of the season.

Some stats to show the improvement under Goodie.

Going into the winter break:
18/19 = 12 points from 21 games (-24 GD)
19/20 = 19 points from 21 games (-12 GD)

We eventually went into the split on 21 points.

Does that show Goodwin is decent or the PE Teacher wasn't so good? :rolleyes:
