St.Mirren v Green Bigots

Recommended Posts


Decent performance. Nice to see Jim getting close to his best players on the park. I know Morais was on for his workrate and pressing but personally would have played McPherson. Connolly I think against poorer team will be an asset for us, good pace and attitude. Good to see Obika get his backside booted also. Flynn and Macgennis when up and running again will help. Bit more optimistic after tonight

We won't though we can't win away from home and to be honest most of our performances away have been pretty shocking.

Ft 1-2 expected worse, pity zamal loan is over, thought he looked like a decent keeper. If we can play like that on Saturday we could win.

Hurts to say it... But talking shite.
 
Selling out our family stand to the OF without any attempt whatsoever to increase or incentivise the home support makes his rallying call nothing more than empty rhetoric.
 
You know when you laugh at an English commentator when he mentions a certain year.

Best we have played for a while. Punished for a couple of defensive errors. If that's the big goalie's last game for us then it's a big thanks. Did very well. Thought the whole team played well tonight. Morias put in a shift and Erwin and Connolly look dangerous. Optimism fully restored. In Jim we trust.

Radio coverage only. Yet another defeat albeit by a lower margin than expected, which is no consolation however. Should we lose again on Saturday, things are looking grim. May watch highlights later.

Looking grim after 7 games, getting 2 wins and a draw and also having played both the ugly sisters?

We are still not playing to our strength. Morias and mcallister shouldn't be near first team 451 to 442  our strength is/ will be in midfield and defence. Forget the wings or have connolly utilise them later in games

Few things to take away from tonight. 

1) Erwin is going to be a bit of a handful up top. If we're going with only 1 up he actually seems better at that role than Obika. 

2) McGrath should be our main set piece taker, no questions asked

3) We're a better team for not having Sheron in it. 

4) we need to work on defending cross balls. That's all 5 goals we've lost against the old firm this season that have come from balls being played in from wide. It's a real issue. We give away very little through the middle and look solid but we look weak defending crosses. 

5) Connolly looks like he's going to be a good out ball and we should be using his pace as much as possible until he burns himself out after 65 mins.

So 7 games in we have played the top 3 which leaves 4 games 2 wins 1 draw from those games aye shows a really look of being grim

Well I have to say that was hard to watch despite going a goal ahead so early.Quite simply we have players who cannot do the simple things expected of pros like passing controlling the ball etc. I really do fear for us this season only pass marks for me were McGrath and Erwin.

forget the wings until later negates the forwards we have so no point playing them either then

Despite Celtic being not at their best tonight,  I think you're forgetting the massive gulf in quality they have compared to us. We were still in the game right to the end.

A big improvement on our last two outings,  and hopefully something to build on.

The way we play I think the wingers are pretty essential (i'd imagine Goodwin agrees, when was the last time we had 4 pacey wingers on the books at once?).

If we are absorbing pressure, going direct and not really utilising a fullback overlap we need as a bare minimum:

A - striker on the park suited to playing the battering ram and holding the ball for 90 minutes

B - Options down the flanks to release pressure

McPherson before Moais every time!

Morais getting unfair stick tonight. Bar the first 20 minutes he did well given he was feeding off punts and had little support when countering. Connolly looks enthusiastic and persistent but he needs to be able to produce too but hard against the top teams. McAllister looks a shell of a player, think injuries are taking their toll. Overall the shape and discipline was better just lack that wee bit quality.

Very strange comment.

You think Cammy would have been effective on the wing?

Apples and oranges sir.

I would have started Cammy for sure...
Ahead of McCarthy.

I guess Goodie was just being a bit more adventurous and positive than me.

I'm never going to criticise him for that.

Agreed, Moria's done well tonight, the whole team played pretty well tbh, at least we know we're no as pish as we've looked in the last few games... Erwin looks a big improvement on Obika... Hopefully we can kick on from here..

Morias was gash half the time he spent in the middle of the park if not leaving space doen their left to attack he was chasing shadows. Early doors 2nd half played a ball straight out the park to a seat in the stand then hits a long diagonal to Erwin i the box tohalf an inch from bye line never a forward and certainly not a winger/wide man in a 5. Erwin n Obika are different styles of player were you slating him last season after his goals

mcallister and morias offer no relief of pressure when flynn is back great and connolly on the left of midfield poss in 451 but morais and mcallister not worth the space just now

Chill the feck out bro, we just put in a good performance against the best team in the country, Imo I thought Morias played ok tonight. Where the f**k did I slate Obika, Erwin looks far better playing up front on his own than Obika ever has... Big Jon got his uses, just not when we struggle to get bodies up the park to help him out...

Here is the know it that knows f*** all, you really hate me taking the pi#s out of for your comments about the Hibs game start of last season and your opinion that Obika would outscore Thommo's SPL record for us.

2 and a bit seasons back in SPL we have won at only Hamilton and Motherwell(pre split) that is 10 teams that we haven't won against 11 if you include Hearts even although you are obviously a bit dim even you can work out that is sh**e.

Where was the Hamilton victory?
