St.Ricky

Saint Mirren v St Johnstone March 2020

Recommended Posts

The better team again, but unfortunately that counts for nothing as our lack of cutting edge is depriving us of much needed wins. Our midfield as an attacking threat is really tame at times.

His subs are unfathomable, beyond bizarre. Wallace and McGrath should have been off as we were creating nothing. We needed a midfield spark, can only assume McAllister wasn't fit again. Andreu offers nothing . Scrap well and truly on but we are still in the driving seat.

I thought Wallace had a decent game and looks like he will be a good addition. And for all the Waters haters, he ran him close for mom. Hate singling out players but can't fathom why mcgrath survived the full 90 mins. Offered absolutely nothing.

I agree. Thought Wallace had a good game. Most significantly our set piece deliveries which were utterly dreadful against Aberdeen, were considerably better tonight when he was taking them. Sent n some great corners and free kicks.

Aye, Rangers who we gifted the points as we were quite happy losing by a narrow margin. 

Rangers managed 31 shots on goal to Hamilton's 9. It's baffling that they lost especially when you consider they have the 50 million pound man Morelos 😝

Rangers had 17 shots, 5 on target, against us, we had 1, ZERO on target, can you see the difference? 

It's quite good to laugh at Morelos, he's only scored 20 goals and been injured/suspended.

He rarely put a bad ball in tnite, although according to some, he was poor. f**k knows what they were watching.

Absolutely shite. Wonder what drugs Goody is on. f**king Andreu and Morias. What a f**king joke. Apart from Wallace Foley and Hladky the rest get 0 out of 10. Oblka back to what he was like V Hibs. Cant win your home games theres only one way your going and that's down. A lot of them will be looking for new jobs. We play Hearts next week play like that and we will lose.

If Foley doesn't get zero out of 10 tonight, it must be because he was on minus 1 or minus 2.

One of my favourite Saints players but he was absolutely rotten tonight.

Why on earth does Goodwin persist with putting Tony f**king Andreu on after an hour.

Literally NO-ONE in the stadium looks at Andreu and thinks 'oh, you're in trouble, here comes Tony to save the day'.

Guy is an empty shirt and the fact that we take an attacking threat off and put on a guy who to be honest, I have no idea what role he's meant to be playing, just baffles me.

Goodwin has made a lot of silly tactical decisions and has cut a lot of slack for it given who he is. This period of grace is coming to a noticable end though.

We give the ball away cheaply too often, we lack quality up front. Pedestrian play allows opposition to get back in numbers. Too many errors when in good positions, bizarre substitutions and more concerned with not losing. Apart from that a good point won. Unfortunately hearts and Hamilton are doing what we fail to do so often and dig out crucial victories. This season is going to a close call attempting to avoid bottom two places. On the plus side possibly have chance to overtake Ross county next week and possibly some distance from bottom two but the number of goals we score tells its own story

I think he was trying to do too much. Missing Cammy or one of the injured midfielders being alongside him.

He put plenty of shite balls into the box tonight, some barely made it in. He did also put a couple of decent crosses in too.

I kinda get what you mean with Wallace, neat and tidy but we needed spark, drive and energy at that stage. Waters good again, been saying that for weeks. Anyone see the 2 total roasters giving Goodwin pelters at the front of the West when he came over at FT. Goody just stared them out but they were going Tonto !

I thought Wallace had a decent game and looks like he will be a good addition. And for all the Waters haters, he ran him close for mom. Hate singling out players but can't fathom why mcgrath survived the full 90 mins. Offered absolutely nothing.

It’s going to be between us and Ross County for bottom and second bottom. Unless we can pull off some big results before the split. I thought Chabbi looked good in the air tonight, nearly scored with his first touch of the ball. Disappointed with Hodson, he looks very indecisive at times going forward. Has Gerrard been sacked yet ?

But we didn't lose........................:wink:
Ach, we were, overall, the better team tonight.
They looked pretty good against Rangers yet really didn't trouble us at all.
Another opportunity lost, 10 men and at home and we drop another 2 points. 
Fingers crossed Celtic are having a Rangers type dip in form. 
10 men for only 15 minutes, though we shouldve had enough against 11 as they are f**king awful.

Correct about our midfield and I can't argue on the lack of cutting edge but, small margins. We hit the post twice, their keeper had a superb save. And.. Importantly, we didn't lose and closed the gap on Ross County on whom we still have a game in hand and a vastly superior goal difference.

I’m not a big fan of Hodson at all, but credit where credit’s due, he saved us at the back post a couple of times tonight.

I don’t know if “plenty” is a fair description, but no one is suggesting he’s going to get it right all the time. He’s not Pirlo.

The point I was trying to make about our set piece deliveries is that generally good (which Wallace’s were tonight) is better than consistently shite (which everyone else’s were on Saturday).

Poor, pedestrian and predictable.

Fakes could tell exactly how we were going to play and knew how to counter it.

No urgency until the last ten minutes.

Unacceptable.

That first substitution in particular was bizarre.
è
Jakubiak was the only forward looking capable of scoring and aszrputting some effort in.

To replace him with our hide and seek champion was criminal.

That left us with a lone striker upwho had hardly touched the ball before then!

Not good enough.

A case of marginal improvement.

31 shots is great going for a new club.  Cut The Rangers some slack.  They had a hard match at the weekend.

 

There was too much looking on the bright side by Buddies before this match.  A point is still an improvement- can’t ever rely on other clubs.

you all mock Hearts fans for doing that- relying on St Mirren - when they couldnae manage a draw to win the league, a few years ago.

tonight’s was a worthwhile, useful point.

McGrath again, must be superb in training but did nothing all night, again. How we can make three subs and he stays on is baffling. Very disappointing tonight.
I thought that on Saturday, he was better tonight though

Coming home from pub and not read the thread. But have to say McGrath offers nothing. However it's more than Andreu and Morias offer. End of post.

Yeah not doing a lot to be fair but no doubt like many he will be playing out of position. Morias too isn’t a right mid . We were told to expect a reaction..... wow was that it ? We’ll lose to Celtic and hearts and could be bottom by next Wednesday. I think we will get a draw at county and not much else before split
