  1. Hamilton v St Mirren

    Don’t know if it’s a lack of confidence or just a lack of composure but we need to be a lot more clinical in the remaining games to stay up. That said I felt we played well and while soft, the penalty was quite justified. Dreyer cut back and Ziggy hung out a lazy leg which impeded him, Dreyer definitely sold it but unfortunately that is what you need to do to get a penalty unless you’re one of the arse cheeks. Certainly feeling a lot better about our chances than a few months ago and watching Dreyer ignore any celebrations after his penalty, as he was chasing the win, suggests the players feel the same.

    I heard it was Kenny who paid the hosting fee so probably yes.
  3. St Mirren v Livi

    It was actually blatant today as Holt walked around the technical area while Martindale was barking instructions to the team. Massive 3 points for Saints and desperately needed.

    Yeah that seems fair. Aberdeen spent about £8.5M in wages and Shrewsbury are around the £3.5M range, like you say more in line with bottom half of the league. His relationship with Brian Caldwell probably sealed it though.

    I think that is what frustrates me the most when we worked so hard to get back up and are just watching it slip away. I started supporting Saints in 1986 so I grew up with us being a decent side but lately our times in the Premiership, Premier League has just been either survival defensive football or going from one defeat to the next like this season. The club is losing its connection to the fans and even the players have become a series of jobbers going through a revolving door. Christ we can’t even keep players long enough to maintain an up to date calendar now [emoji14] It sucks the bloody life out of you after a while. [emoji45]
  6. St Mirren v Dundee United

    I think so, we don’t look like we have a shape or a game plan. Really nice bloke but looks tactically naive and has failed to realize Scottish teams need a physical midfielder.
  7. St Mirren vs Motherwell - 06/02/2019

    Think we all were.......including the players.

    Watching the Motherwell pre match interviews with Oran and Simeon they did very well not to give the media their headline from Saturday. Honest to Christ the way they kept asking the same questions in different ways was nothing short of entrapment [emoji85] The Scottish media really are cowards, if they feel it’s an injustice then why don’t they report it..........after all they are supposed to be impartial [emoji57]

    Yes, every senior home game is covered.

    I see the striker from St J is joining Rice at Hamilton. If you were to sum us up in one word......would naive spring to mind?

    I always wondered why Norwich signed Tony Andreu from Accies for £1M after Alex Neil left Accies for Norwich [emoji1]

    Ironically I think Jack Ross is the reason fans are more patient with him. Jack got off to a bad start and a few fans got on his back however because he turned it around quite spectacularly people are more willing to give Kearney time. Given we are now in a higher league though that will be far more difficult this time, so if results don't start coming I expect some pitch forks will appear. Personally as long as he is doing a reasonable job then I hope he gets well into next season before we even consider replacing him regardless of what league we're in. Football fans are a fickle bunch though.

    Paul McGinn was the same, he played the ball inside when Anders was wide open on the wing on a few occasions. Hopefully something we can fix in training.

    Me too. I am sick of him turning everything into a negative and a few sheep believing the nonsense he literally makes up. Obsessed is the best word to describe him. Norrie has shown tremendous patience but even he is reaching his limit. Shame as there were and still are a lot of good Buddies on the forum. Between that and the fuds who pollute every thread on B&WA, this in an oasis.

    I think we've done some pretty good business this window but I would like to see us add a big striker and a nasty b*****d for the middle of the park.
