Laid-back Accie

Accies - St Mirren

Recommended Posts

We'll end up winning this week and then get beat by Dundee, it's the Accies way.


If you can’t beat us then you should quit football.

I'd love a win here to kick start things but am tempering my expectations. 

Happy to cut and run with an away point. Watching us on the road so far this season has been absolutely fraught until now and picking up a point here would be another morale booster and show we're turning a corner.

Shit attendances, plastic pitch, Stubbs unfairly treated, St Mirren players throwing it in.

Any other lazy observation from outsiders I've missed?

 

As for the game, I'm hopeful for a win and with Hibs and Aberdeen next up I would suggest it's pretty critical.

A draw wouldn't be a terrible result given the circumstances but we need to try and build as big a gap as possible over Dundee before they bag McCann.

I can see either 0-0 or 1-0 either way. 1 moment of quality/defensive screw up could settle it.

If St.Mirren have any sort of midfield we are in trouble.Canning reckons we have the strongest squad he has ever had which is a worry in itself as we have the weakest midfield we have had since pre Billy Reid days.

An insistence in playing 3-5-2 with the current midfield will lead to Anton Ferdinand defending in ye olde pipes and slippers;we have to either pack the midfield in the hope the number of bodies will disguise it's inadequacies or go all out attack with three up front.

The new Manager bounce may well win the day unless Martin Canniwin pulls one of his every so often results which keeps him in the job.

You won't win this week I'm sorry to say you will have to slug it out with Dundee. Our bad patch is over Stubbs terrible signings were dropped on Friday we had a glimpse of last season's St Mirren which will continue on Saturday.

Same. 

Love it when opposition fans get over confident.

Honestly. You think you were old enough to learn from pish like this. 

One decent performance against Celtic means not a thing. We are still dreadfully unbalanced and it will take more than a week to fix the issues. Even a win on Saturday doesn't mean we can rest easy.

We've got a hugely unbalanced squad and will have several players playing out of position.

We've got a 33 year old centre half who is so lacking in match fitness that he couldn't even go up for corners and free kicks last week, yet still looks like our best option.

We've got no width because our entire midfield will be central midfielders until January. 

We've got one reasonable option up front in Danny Mullen. That's it.

Yet despite all this you still come away with that shite?

Josh can play out wide as can Flynn. As  for a 33 year old centre back not fit he did rather well against Celtic. We will see who is writting shite come 5.45 on Saturday hopefully you will have that big negative cross off your shoulder.

Is Josh not a centre half and injured?

Is it a late kick off?

On the other hand , you'll be playing the Accies, so that pretty much balances all that.
