Us v Morton.

Recommended Posts

The board must be getting very itchy feet with Goodwin, anybody else would be under real pressure with his recent record. 

Cup winning captain might buy him a bit of extra time but he can’t dine out on it for much longer, tactics and substitutions dreadful.

Cant wait to hear Goodwin pish. Used that game as a pre season friendly. Connelly was the only sub that looked OK. Thought McAllister and Ethan were brilliant to watch. But they won't be doing that again. How dare you play well. Alnwick is a great replacement for Vaclav. Good keeper. Like Shaunghnessy as well. And Mason looks a player. But Goodwin lost us a point tonight.

I get that Goodwin wanted to give players a runout but he didn't change like for like. McAllister was playing as an inside forward and Ethan was playing deeper  and Goodwin had plenty of choices to replace them but brought on two number nines giving us 3 with no support players. Crazy stuff.

And Morais was absolutely dire in that first half. Surely that must be his last start in a Saints shirt. And again how does Connolly not get a game - he looks like one of the most creative players we have.

I blame myself. I found a really good stream and turned it on for the second half. Unlike the players. Great stream, p!sh team. We should have had a penalty but, to be honest, we didn't deserve it. we only started to get any semblance of shape when Connolly was introduced and we looked just a little more balanced.

No they are no Hamilton are real gash weekend result proved that 

They are also out this cup having been beaten by Stranraer and Annan . . .

They are the "Dundee team this season unless they have a brilliant January window...

That second half was just not acceptable. Horrific performance. For anyone who didn't see it and therefore has no idea just how bad we were, think of the performances under Stubbs. It was worse than that!!!

Too much sauce for you tonight - you have a short memory block me thinks "

I’m nowhere near calling for Goodwins head

But I’m getting tired of the formation/ starting line up lottery that we go through each week. We make 4-5 changes every week and yet Connolly rarely starts despite looking our most dangerous player every time he plays

Would love to know Sam Foleys passing stats for tonight

Sorry mate. I respectfully disagree. 
Goodwin took a team tonight that was absolutely battering the opposition and for no good reason made the most ludicrously unfathomable substitutions, leading to a change in tactics which cost us a game we could have won totally comfortably. 
The guy is out of his depth. Absolutely clueless. 
I genuinely believe we are going to get lucky this season because Accies appear to be even worse than us.

Difference is, I believe with a manager who wasn’t completely useless our players would be good enough to avoid relegation without too much trouble.

Nope.  Goodwin can't be criticised for tonight.  His whole approach was to give those players who have had little game time, a chance.  Had that been a league game he would not have made so many changes.  Come on; examine the game! 

I’ve seen some apologist statements on football forums over the years, but that is right up there with the best of them.

Agree with everything here.

We are far too defensive. A team built on not losing with a sprinkle of hopeless forwards. Doesnt matter which players are on the pitch or what formation, we are just a bad team.

Connolly is the only player with pace and direct attitude yet he never gets a game. Gives you an idea of Goodwins defensive mind.

I got into football for the excitement attacking play can bring not to watch the equivalent of paint drying never mind the total lack of talent in that team

And it looks like nothing will change until the manager changes.........yet again

I do not want JG to go, but I am baffled by his substitutions tonight.

We should have been out of sight by HT, so why make the changes he did, when he did ?

Connolly has to start the next game.

If you put Erwin on, don’t take off the guy who is crossing the ball.

Need to win well on Saturday to qualify. A draw, even with a win on pens, is unlikely to allow us to progress.

Ultimately very disappointed.

Goodwins subs and choices were a huge part in that f**k up tonight.

it’s getting harder to watch in all honesty. Toothless and devoid of any consistent creativity. 

I like Goodwin but I’m getting sick of the same old pish week in and out. I’m getting fed up watching it. 

scunnered.

I think you’re missing the point mate. The first half was almost perfect barring more goals. I appreciate we have to take the opposition into consideration, but we couldn’t really have asked for much more. We weren’t in any way defensive.

Then we had stupid substitutions and a clear tactical shift.  All we had to do was come out second half with more of the same. 
If that’s what you mean by too defensive fair enough, but the first half was anything but.
Tonight was 100% Goodwin’s fault and if he’s got anything about him he’ll take it right on the chin..........or preferably walk.
