Double Winning St Johnstone FC Thread

Tbf our record against lower league sides, over 90 minutes, under Davidson isnt very convincing. We won the first 3 in his first Betfred Group back in November 2020 (2-1 v Kelty, 7-0 v Brechin, 3-1 v Peterhead (2 penalties)) and since then failed to beat Dunfermline, Arbroath and Kelty in the opening 90 minutes.

Arbroath shouldve comfortably beat us earlier this season and I doubt we come back twice like we did in that game now.

Arbroath spanked us all over the park that sunny day. I've got real doubts that we would match the energy they would bring to a do or die double header.

Oh I don’t know. On paper we have a more talented squad but there’s absolutely no character or personality in the team. It reflects the manager perfectly unfortunately. If whoever we play is up for it we’ll really struggle.

Yeah it was a total injustice we won it in the end, that was us with Kerr and McCann in the team too.

As has been pointed out before. We hadn't won in 90 mins with Kerr/McCann before they left. The signs were there that management from the opposition had worked us out. 

Probably why our best performances were away in Turkey and Austria.

Any side that can vaguely function as a team will beat us. 

Dick Campbell will already have worked out Dullidson.

That is fucking pathetic, yet again. The irony in him saying it is something personal towards Davidson is laughable. Fanny. 

That's absolutely tragic 🤡

We'll lose the away leg 1-0 after playing for a nil nil draw.  We will then have 90 minutes to break a team down in what is, literally, a must win game.  Maybe we'll muster something sensational like a shot on target in this scenario but we aren't winning the game.

Have you seen how fucking shite St Johnstone are this season?

We've had poor spells before. A terrible end/season beginning under Lomas that was turned round.

A few under Wright that he always turned round. 

But this is something else entirely.

If you exclude Callum Hendry and Ali Crawford, we have scored 2 goals from open play since October and one of them was a massive deflection. 

We heard it all about Killie last season and Dundee demolished them in that final.

If a team can score a goal and defend set plays then they're heavy favourites against us.

I'd expect Arbroath to beat us home and away tbh.

Why would you exclude them?

Excluding Hendry, Chris Kane's total for the season is only one goal behind the whole squad's total from January onwards.

To make the point that other than a couple of players, we are virtually incapable of scoring from open play. 

If you can track Crawford on the odd occasion he gets into the box and keep Hendry quiet, the job is as good as done. 

I say odd occasion regards Crawford as (shooting left to right) this was how close our attacking midfielder got to be having a touch in the box in Saturday's must-win game.

All teams have their players they rely on. Take Ronan out the St Mirren team and we'd be 11th.

Definitely a problem for St Johnstone. I thought Hendry, for the most part, was ok on Saturday. Had that one chance where he should've hit the target and lacked service. He's good enough to cause problems for whoever you meet in the playoffs though.

Callum surely views every players stats, it's his fucking job after all. What I want to know is why he finds this current side and their performances acceptable? Because any normal 'Manager' if something doesn't work, they fix it to make it work.

 

In fact why the f**k am I even typing this shite?  just go you grunting little hobbit and take your team with you.

Guaranteed he does exactly the same this Saturday too.

It's totally fucking unacceptable!!!!!
