  1. Obviously the game was a shocker. However, we've got to be delighted with how well our defence played. Particularly McCart. That was a 90 minute aerial assault. Other than the 3 central defenders and Clark, not many pass marks. Thought Holt was the best of the midfield 3. Hendry had a few nice touches and flicks. Game seemed to change when Spoony came on and what a goal he nearly scored. Hendrys goal deserved to win the game though. Great cross, even better finish. You've got to love Callum Hendry. Top player, looked knackered after 60 mins but kept going. He's such a natural finisher.
  2. That was an awful game of football. St Mirren are a poor side but well organized and Obika always looks capable. We were dreadful though. We looked very leggy and without wanting to make excuses for them Sunday would have taken its toll. McCann had his poorest game all season, the other 3 were wasteful in midfield and up top Kane was woeful. Absolutely honking. Thought May buzzed about ok but service was poor. Defence were fine though, nice and solid. Wasn't sure why Tommy kept Craig on so long. He was on a booking and looked a tad slow so that red was on the cards. Anyway, decent point given the circumstances and hopefully a return of Hendry and Butcher on Sat.
  3. I didn't think I'd say this but I've quite enjoyed my wee ventures into the Main Stand. A massive success given the crowds and performances. Having all the Saints fans in one stand makes a significantly better atmosphere and in no way is handing the old firm an advantage. The extra leg room and hot water are just a bonus
  4. Sensing you're not a fan? He undoubtedly has talent. I'm not exactly clambering like the rest of the fans for a contract renewal yet though. His crossing is poor and often doesn't get past the first man. Defensively he's good. I think he'd be more successful with Hendry in the team than Kane or May though. With Kane and particularly May I'd be inclined to play O'Halloran who more often than not goes for a low cut back then swinging it into the box.
  5. Watching back the highlights it's even worse - Zander should be nowhere near this team. What a shambles he's been this season.
  6. Two in our last 4 league games. We're playing much better but there is always a reluctance under Tommy to go out and add to a lead. Very rare we win by more than 1 goal. The result of that is you are always bricking it for the last 10 mins. On a positive note at least we are getting in the position to throw points away. Earlier in the season the game was dead after 15 mins.
  7. Saints sitting back and trying to eek out a 1-0 win. Shock horror another late goal conceded. Deserved for sitting back.
  8. Before the Hamilton game I said that at least we'd hold onto McCann for a decent amount of time because nobody outside Perth would notice a defensive midfielder who does the less glamorous side of the game. 5 weeks later and he's bagged 4 goals and 2 assists. He's going to Milan.
  9. You have to keep it in the context of the era though. Pre-bosman transfer fees were the norm. We would have received significantly more fees than we do now, hence we spent more. Would be interesting to see the reciprocal figures that @Radford produced for player sales.
  10. Watched back the full 90 and that was a brilliant game of football. Didn't appreciate at the time how important Liam Craig was - some terrific first time balls over the top. That's the service Stevie May needs. Sickener at the end given the obvious foul but was a wonderful finish. Our second goal was a beauty too though, a great flowing move. If Stevie May scored that 40 yarder that would have been it - football completed.
  11. Brutal first 45 despite us playing ok when we had the ball. The biggest issue was when we didn't. Far far too passive, standing off and giving Celtic time to pass it through us. We didn't defend the wide areas either. Holt lacked discipline to keep goal side and he let us get overrun constantly. Second half - big improvement. Craig sat in nicely and tidied up the space in front of the defence and filled the hole Holt should have. Kerr much much more aggressive, closing out the wide men. McCann and particularly Spoony took the game to Celtic. I thought Spoony had a fine game. This formation really suits his game. Up top nothing really worked. Mikey was offside too much. Hendry never got into the game and Kane was Kane - won a few free kicks. We should have scored though, 4 or 5 good chances. Enough positives to take into Saturday. Celtic were good first 45 - you can't deny them that. Ntcham's goal was a great move.
  12. That Hearts win could he a triple blow when you think about it. 1, they pull 3 pts closer. 2, gives even more incentive to Celtic to beat us on wed to pile the pressure on Rangers. 3, more pressure on Rangers to win their game in hand against us. Who knows maybe it will all work in our favour, still a bad sign for the bottom six if Hearts get their house in order though. Funny that £150k can buy you safety if it goes on the right player. Brown et al take note.
  13. I didn't see what he did wrong to he honest? Would like to see it again.
  14. I think a few on here are forgetting we're all Saints fans. There's not that many of us and I'm sure we all overreact at times when the club are struggling. Not enough reason to abuse another Saints fan online if you ask me. And folk say WAP is bad? There is a PM function on the forum if you REALLY want raise something with someone. Posting abuse is just encouraging others to jump on it too. Let's get back to just being Saints fans and celebrate a good win. COYS.
  15. 3 years after the summer. Could be some piece of business by the club. However, will be interesting to see if other clubs see what he brings. He does the quiet side of the game - non glamorous. Interceptions, tackles, moving the ball in deep areas, starting attacks. Never wastes a ball. It's easy not to notice these players as they are not getting direct goals or assists. More games like today though and it will be hard for teams to overlook him, affecting the game at both ends. Happy for him to fly under the radar for as long as though...
