Hamilton v St Mirren Sat 20th March


Recommended Posts


I don't know why all the finger pointing at couple of heavy defeats. We were in driving seat today and to be fair against easier opposition that the fakes were. It's all good blaming JG but he isn't on the pitch. The captain should shoulder blame too, doesn't seem to be able to motivate team. I mean doing an online interview stating there was a bit of nervousness couple of days before game really doesn't fill anyone with confidence surely not from captain anyway.

Formationwise stick to 442 for gods sake and get durmus and connolly making fullbacks life a misery and getting ball into box with 2 strikers going for it and stop fannying around with goal kicks.

 

They had a great chance, blew it and now need their arses kicking for it.

I don't need to post it to prove it.
I was too busy watching the game with my son and after looking at your post quoting the guy who wanted 3 Ross County goals i followed St J match more closely and at one point St J had 21 shots to County 1 it was then i repeated my prediction to him that St J will score and we will lose a late goal after all it is the St Mirren way we all know and love.

It was the Jim Goodwin way.  A game we had to win , we start with 2 so called strikers :huh: and end the the game with none.

All depends on what you count as success or failure, if success is avoiding a relegation scrap we should just about manage that. Midfield and forward has had no continuity or style of play for the majority of the season. As someone else has pointed out we have actually only played well in a handful of games all season.

We have a manager who spends to much time worrying about the opposition rather than letting them worry about us. Our "success" this season has been built solely on our very reliable goalkeeper and the defence. We have turned JDH from a box to box midfielder into a very average holding midfielder and you could probably say the same about Ethan beside him. Durmus is asked one week to play as a wing back then the next a winger is it any wonder he looks lost at times. The least said about the right hand side of midfield the better, where Connolly and McAllister compete most weeks to see who can run about the most and contribute nothing to the team.

We have a multitude of forwards and for me, they all fall into the "mehh" category, oh for a Somner, McDougall, McAvennie... sorry showing my age.

Finally we have a manager that overthinks everything and seems scared to take risks and today was another perfect example of this.

To summarise I feel sorry for the guys at the back, but going forward that is not a top six team i'm afraid.

Best Post ave read in years,100% correct sir,also a have been saying for years we need a striker coach,as how the hell can Goodwin sharp McManus langfield Webster improve me as a striker,and going by Goodwin signings Erwin quauner junior he obviously doesn't no what a striker is either,he should man up and admit his blame for absolutely stinkin performance at hampden and tactically inept also and he goes again with a negative attitude, we are covering wallpaper over the holes if we got top 6th because they be thinking he a genius and he far from it,am sick of his anti football and am sick of his bullshit after match interviews, you blew it again Goodwin

Can' argue with that.. For me Cammy was always a better option than Doyle Hayes who is overrated by many on here, Cammy is more of a goal threat for a start and goals win you games 

I think JDH has plenty of skill and potential, but our style of play has him playing far too deep. He needs to be pushed further forward.

Not me.. StJ out played us three times, we were awful twice in Perth and we won in Paisley in the last 10mins against 10 men.

I don’t think we were negative today but our inability to score goals is what cost us we are just not good enough at the top end of the pitch to be a top team and we also don’t score enough from midfield Mcgarth has obviously scored goals but 90% have been penalties.

Our goalkeeper and defence is what put us in a position to be top 6 and I think all bar Fraser are contracted for next season so we now need to start looking at the midfield and the strikers if we want to take that next step. 

 

Absolutely this. We weren’t negative today. Nothing even close to negative. Anyone who thinks we were is a f**king idiot.

What we were was completely and utterly f**king shite in the final third. 

Furthernore, that has been our problem all season. If we had been even 50% more efficient in that area we’d have comfortably been a top 6 team.

If Goodwin has failed at anything this season, it’s been been recruiting an even remotely decent striker.

Gutted but not surprised. We don’t deserve it for falling to beat Hamilton in either of the last two games against them or any of the other winnable matches in February. That said if we finish 7th we’d have been happy with that at the start of the season and praised the boys and Goodwin for improving on last year. Let’s hope we can find a striker in the summer and we can look to next year with optimism.
