St Mirren v Motherwell 9/1/21


Recommended Posts

My issue with us at the moment is not the “standard” of our football so much. We play some nice stuff generally. My issue is how frustrating we are to watch. Poor decision making or execution at the vital times after good build up play. Certainly not good for the blood pressure.

Observations on today.

Alnwick was excellent as ever although did flap at one corner which nearly cost us but I wouldn’t be holding that against him. The guy is brilliant.

Tait, Shaughnessy and McCarthy were all decent. Fraser had a rare poor game.

Ethan needs a wee spell on the bench and JDH had a quiet game by his recent standards. Didn’t play particularly badly but just wasn’t as influential as usual.

Connolly was poor and one of the main sources of the frustration I was talking about. McGrath huffed and puffed. He was okay but he’s been much better. McAllister woeful. Looked fat and slow.

Erwin was awful too. I accept he was marginally better in the second half, but it’s a measure of how bad he is when folk start giving him praise because he managed once or twice to chest the ball down and pass it to a team mate. That is bread and butter for a player of his type and the bare minimum we should expect.

People saying we were lucky to get a point today and I guess we were, but only in the sense that we were 1-0 down reasonably late on and got a dodgy penalty. However, today still felt like a defeat to me. We failed to beat a team that I believe are inferior to us and that for me is the most frustrating thing.

Yet another lining up for a cheap shot at Erwin.
Get behind him FFS... Supporters do that, you know. Support and encourage.
He played well overall and had some lovely touches.
Much more to come from the lad.
Boo boy!

Agreed. That was his best performance for us IMO and is starting to show a bit of promise.

Ethan has so much potential - and is one for the future.

However, it is time that Flynn, MacPherson and Foley got the chance to take the pressure off him while in this dip in form.

It must be getting near the time when Jim gives one of those 3 a chance ahead of him.

Encouraged and had his back for a long time, hoped he’d come good but now we have other options I don’t see him getting much game time. 
 
Lost count of the number of times he needlessly game the ball away today. 
Boo boy!
The self appointed defender of all things Saints has turned against the players and is questioning the managers judgement.

Oh the shame!

Lucky draw today

2 weeks running

Midfield needs to be changed if starting Erwin

Not many runners too many ball hoggers

Thank God for the keeper

4 points dropped the last 2 games or more likely 2 luckypoints gained

Definitely not a lucky draw. Fortunate penalty perhaps, but the least we deserved.

It’s nice to see you being quite positive about a St Mirren point because it’s clear you are one of the most negative posters on here. I simply disagree & can’t stand behind him anymore (hopefully he proves me wrong if given more chances in coming games) 
 

The middle bit has never been my approach, no player/ coach/ BOD is above criticism & Erwin has been very frustrating in his time at St Mirren. No I’m not questioning the managers judgement, that’s just a fabrication.

You're wrong on most points in that post, especially about BEK being negative.

What absolute nonsense. He clearly is not a negative poster.

As for abuse. You clearly have problems taking it so you really ought not to be dishing it out.

I’m not though, you wouldn’t be able to back up your claims regarding me being wrong. . 
 

Also the point on BEK is absolute fact. 😂

Yes you are.
Goodie signed him.
Goodie started him.
The manager rates him and is sticking by him.

You feel you know better!

Boo boy!

Me negative?
I'm one of the most positive posters about Saints. Typical deflection!

I haven’t claimed anyone has ‘abused’ me and I certainly haven’t abused anyone on here. Drama queen. 
 

Anyway give yourself peace, I thought you were going crying to your ignore function?

Well feel free to try and back up your point. 

BEK has spent weeks of his life crying about SMFC on here. He does have his positive moments as well but the negativity was fierce and ridiculous on a number of threads.

Correct me if I wrong, but didn't Motherwell have a couple of influential players back from injury. They seems to have a right solid defence.

Strange folk finally snapping with Erwin today as I thought he linked play pretty well today especially when coming deeper 2nd half with the changes Jim made. Before the hour mark we could have played without a striker really. Two chances created and they fell to Fraser and Erharon. I still think Obika is the better option but today for me Erwin did ok.

Poor performance, a bit of a worry we are nowhere near the level we know these players are capable of. My thoughts 
- Erwin, although much better with a partner up top isn't the level we need, he's had enough time now to show his worth and sadly has not in the main part (get he won the penalty). Wouldn't be surprised to see him fall out the team with new signings
- Very soft penalty, wee bit of luck on that 
- Wide players need to be doing more, Motherwell had that well scouted, thought Durmus changed the game regarding an attacking threat
- Defence again looking shaky, could have been game over in the first half, would like to see a new CB during the window and an option to press

Goody certainly did sign him, he's also signed two other strikers in a week. I am not questioning the managers judgement at all, every signing won't work out 100% or the time and I feel Erwin isn't working out. I have never once given the view anyone is above criticism, this is you making stuff up about me. 

Incorrect, again Goodwin has signed two strikers, strong evidence our views are the same, that we need to improve up top. 

If you think me criticising a St Mirren player makes me a "boo boy" fine but yet again I have never suggested I won't ever do that or that no one should do that. 

No you are not. 

My conclusion is, after probably over a year of not really engaging with me, you are off the wagon. Jump back on it and we will save a lot of people a lot of time, :whistle

You are massively negative, this is my conclusion over years of arguments with you over various subjects. 

Think it's a bit telling you get so happy at the rare occasion (over this great few years of continued growth for our club) when I feel a player deserves some criticism. 

But again, jump back on the wagon, go back to that promise you have broken dozens of times... You remember the one. :whistle Best for everyone.

Fail.

You are truly making an arse of yourself here boo boy.

So negative.

Your deflection is tedious!

I watched the game, invested in my club to do so, enjoyed the game overall, and fully support the manager and the players he selects to represent the team I support.

Support.

Look it up boo boy!

Accept my view on Erwin is a negative one. Not sure why that’s so funny to you 🤷‍♂️
 

That’s great, that’s your opinion, I share it mostly but I feel (hope) we’ll be better served going with the new options over Erwin. 👍
