  1. League Leaders V Brechin City

    Nah, f**k that, I wanted cigars out and flip-flops on by mid-March
  2. League Leaders V Brechin City

    Starting to feel like we might yet turn this title stroll into a close-fought contest.
  3. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    So I couldn't be more wrong, apart from the bit (most of my post, in fact) about the keeper, which you agree was correct?
  4. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    Number of reasons, I guess. Though your strikers did far more to harass our defence than ours did to yours, which was a big factor. Essentially, on their day, Baird and Davis are great players. Baird is young and one for the future, probably our most improved player, while Davis is quality, even if he still looks like he's changing direction slightly gingerly on his knee. Greg found himself as third, possibly fourth, choice and he wanted games. Can't blame the guy for leaving, but yeah, he will have enjoyed Saturday against an isolated Gavin Reilly. To be very, very kind to our defence, the angle of the sun won't have helped them in the first half. I'm not offering that as an excuse, especially as the 2nd and third goals came from balls in toward the sun, but it contributed to the overall shitshow and feeling of nervousness. By the time we shifted things around, we went to a back three and that just created a huge gap behind Liam Smith that your number 11 (I think) was repeatedly drifting into. We also brought on Hippolyte and for some reason had him sitting deep behind Mullen instead of worrying your defence - and then we shoved Gary Mack up front. It was a tactical clusterfuck, TBH. Naw. Going on holiday the next day. Though was meant to be going the Friday; managed to change so I can see the TV coverage. My jinx doesn't quite extend to matches on TV, thankfully.

    They needed treatment like the keeper needed to fall over every time he caught the ball, and like he needed to take his goal kicks from the opposite side to where the ball went out. I'm not complaining, btw - I'd expect and demand us to do the same if the roles were reversed.
  6. Who will be Brechin's first?

    It's just an entertaining hot potato, no? It's our turn now. Can't really see it happening, but we've scraped past them previously this season and I'd never rule anything out. You can get some hilariously long odds on Brechin this weekend, mind. 4/1 for the double chance draw or away win.
  7. Livi v Utd

    United win please. Livi looked excellent on Saturday and could be a real threat over the next two months. Also, their GD is much closer to ours.
  8. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    Hopefully well timed, from that point of view. What if we'd played terribly but scraped a draw, or just lost 1-0 - lessons might not have been learned. There's no mistaking what went wrong at the weekend (only looking at our performance - Livi played very well). We just look too lightweight sometimes. @Young gun - you mentioned the jinx thing and it was too raw on Saturday to comment, but would you like to know the last time I saw Saints win a league game in the flesh?! 1999, 3-2 vs Morton. Some of the worst examples include Pittodrie away (from Newcastle) - 16 hour round trip, pumped 4-0 (that c**t Miller scored two that day, too). I also saw us leading 2-1 away to Hearts, who went down to 10 men and still beat us 5-2. I really need to stay away! That trip cost me about £90 on Saturday. The singing was good, though. Edit: crowdwank alert - that really is a great away support. I've circled the best looking guy there.
  9. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    I'm really unconvinced by Flynn, too. And Smith had an off game. Weirdly, we might have been ok had the defence not shat the bad for that first goal. But there was no movement, the passing was terrible, and we were beasted in the air. The switch to 3 at the back just created huge channels behind our fullbacks as we chased the game. All in all, hopeless.
  10. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    One silver lining... I would like to see a decent replay of Morgan nutmegging Lithgow and leaving him on his arse. Very little else to celebrate though.
  11. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    Hippolyte's challenge looked high and late too. Staggered he didn't get booked, tbh.
  12. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    We can't play against height at all. We finally won a ball in the air when Hippo came on, but we were all over the place by then. We actually had Morgan up on his own for a while there. Mental stuff. Not gonna complain about the decisions, ref was shite all round. But the penalty for the tug on Morgan was a pen, and I'd be interested to see the handball shout again. From where we were (with the sun in our eyes) it looked like he palmed it away, but I'm assuming it was his head. Our players didn't go mental enough for it to have been handball. Livi could yet make a fist of a challenge here, and even if they don't catch us, I'd fancy them in the playoffs. Good side; deserved win. Didn't hear it once Away support was excellent though.
  13. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    I've just seen a keeper carry the ball a foot over the goal line. No corner; play on. FFS.
  14. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    Gone to 3 at the back.
  15. Livvy v League Leaders 17.2.18

    f**k knows what's up with our defence. Absolutely beasted. Second and third Livi goals were great finishes, but you could see them coming a fucking mile away. I'm hoping it was the angle of the sun or something. High balls in from our left this half. Edit: Hippo for Smith, IMO. We've got nothing up front. I'd go two up.
