The St. Mirren FC 2020/21 Winning the best of the rest thread.

Recommended Posts

Erhahon was phenomenal last night.

 

Lamped one of them and took the booking that got us going. Showed them no respect whatsoever. Gave McGregor some verbals too which is always nice.

 

Was worried he was going to get a second booking but the last 20 minutes he marshalled it along with Doyle-Hayes, who is an absolute dreamboat of a player.

 

Annoyingly that was only the quarter finals but what a buzz.

I remember young Erhahon being slated by the usual suspects when he was younger and being used in the wrong position. His time on loan down south has been the making of him. He is now one of the most promising youngsters to have come through the ranks in recent years and I include McGinn

I was constantly on here expressing my complete dismay that he was being made to look like a bad footballer because he was played so wildly out of position. He got away with it the first 2 or 3 months but it was becoming a real problem area when other teams identified him as the weak point.

I'm chuffed he's finally broken in. And fair play to Goodwin as well, he made mistakes last season by deeming Magennis undroppable whilst he was acting club captain and I just thought that a fit Foley would step back into Ethan's spot, regardless of form but this hasn't been the case and going by Sam's reactions on Twitter, his nose isn't out of joint by that.

Ethan is a tremendous talent. He's actually a lot more than a holding midfielder or mopping up in front of the defence. His range of passing is really good as well and he gets about the park.

Have to I think the lad McCarthy is an outstanding centre back who will go on and play at a much higher level, hopefully getting St Mirren a decent fee

No blame could lie with Erhahon on that. Kearney was well on his way to ruining him as a player by constantly playing him at left back. I’m sure when Jack Ross was at Saints he raved about Erhahon and gave him a couple games in midfield in the final games of the Championship winning season. Kearney came in and saw him only as a left footed player rather than the ability he clearly has. He’s been great this season so far once he got his chance. We have a good number of decent options in midfield so it is testament to how well he is playing by keeping them out the team.

How's this for a character arc: Ethan was chucked in for his top flight debut just over two years ago, at left-back, against Rangers as a 17-year old. He got booked, but performed admirably in the circumstances as we lost 2-0.

A shade over two year down the line, he's still a teenager, and look what he's doing.

He is certainly in a rich vein of form just now. The last two games he has played passes that have opened the defence up and resulted in goals, not fancy spectacular passes but ones that he has made look simple and played with just the right pace. 
 

Not  many of us would have had him and Doyle Hayes as the first pick centre mid partnership a few weeks ago. 
 

As a team we have a long way to go but we seem to be going in the right direction.

I fear the alternative is for the 3-0 results to be overturned and we are get a 6 point deduction. That way Motherwell and Accies are not receiving points to the detriment of teams in the bottom 6 and the only club punished is ourselves.

Why a six point deduction? If the penalty is for the breach, then it  should be a standard punishment regardless of how many games are involved (that's just an accident of scheduling), especially if the games are to be played later.  So that would make a three point deduction for us and Killi reasonable. 

But that then means that every breach is punishable and should be regardless of whether a game is called off or not. That would mean deductions for Dundee United (team photo), Aberdeen (night out), Sevco (Jordan Jones) and the **** (Bolling golli). See where this is going? Potentially the winner of the SPFL could be decided by an arbitrary decision on who to punish and when and by how much. So surely the best thing to do is to fine and leave points as is, other wise there is potentially a huge can of worms to open up. I'll accept a points deduction if those teams get point deductions too.

According to the livvy manager his players were cheering when they drew us??

Interesting......

I think more in the sense that they're happy about not having to play Rangers/Celtic. His very next sentence was "St Mirren will be cheering they got Livingston and so on."

Guys, I think it's reasonable to post this here: Morton are our rivals but I don't like seeing any club* in significant bother.

This link is to a petition that's aiming to prevent Morton's current owners from retaining control of Cappielow when they sell up (simplified version). I spotted it when I saw it doing the rounds on Twitter and @GiGi - a sensible guy - assures me the petition is legit. I'm going to sign it. No Morton fan has asked me to share this.

https://www.change.org/p/greenock-morton-keep-cappielow-park-in-the-hands-of-greenock-morton

It's Christmas and they're our neighbours: maybe consider giving it a click and an e-signature yourselves.

Edit: having signed it, there is an option to withhold your name/details if required.

* Obvious exceptions apply.

Someone has went right under the radar on here at least, i know Goody mentioned him after the game, Brandon Mason. My word. What a job he done on Cafu. Another one who was burst by the end but kept going.

Everyone played out of their skin it's not really fair to pick out individuals but the gaffer took a huge punt on dropping Durmus and it paid off.

Yeah, I read that piece and immediately scrolled up to check the date it was written (Sept 4th to save people checking). Can you imagine the pride his family must have in him for scoring two goals against a Gerrard managed team? Almost enough to bring a tear to a glass eye, so it is.
