The Meh Derby - 24/11/2018 - When Juggernauts collide

Swanson got injured after taking his first touch. He got clattered by Ndjoli I think when trying to nutmeg him and had to be moved inside. I think it was his knee. 

He was drifting all over the park after that without any sign of a knock, and then making no effort to get back. 

I know that's what he is, but you worry about him in this set up if he keeps doing it, he'll become a liability, as even Kennedy works like f**k from behind a striker.

Entertaining game, especially for a 0-0. Think many would have predicted a low scoring draw beforehand.

Thought Saints shaded the first half, and killie had the better of the second. 

Killie are a very good well organised side with no real weaknesses, other than Boyd. Unfortunately that was cancelled out by Tony Watt who was really poor for us today.

Thought Zander, Kerr, Shaughnessy and a Tanser were excellent. Spoony very good again and Kennedy constantly involved.  We seemed to completely lose the centre midfield for periods in the second half  though.

With Hearts, Aberdeen, Livi all losing, and Hibs dropping points at home, that's probably not a bad result for either us or killie today.

Swanson 100% injured within 30 seconds of coming in today. Was nursing it and in Comms with bench for the rest of the game. Pray that Drey Wright is fine ... Huge player

I'm aware he got injured, if it was that bad he should've come off. If it wasn't, it doesn't excuse his lack of work rate.

I'm a huge Swanson fanboy, but I don't think he can expect to be carried defensively the way he was in his last spell here.

Drey Wright has been the player of the season so far, big miss if he's fucked. Anyone slagging Danny deserves a punch in the puss, show some respect you c***s.

He was limping and holding his knee during stoppages of play. The coaches should’ve taken the decision to take him off but he tried to play through it. I don’t think it’s fair criticising him when his movement was so laboured - he certainly didn’t hide either.

Despite Willie Miller’s complaining on the radio I quite enjoyed that. Could have gone either way-both teams having one very close thing towards the end.

Jason Kerr was absolutely superb for us today, as were Tanser and Davidson. Unfortunately at the other end Watt wasn’t quite at it and Broadfoot marshalled him really well throughout.

Felt Killie’s LB was very fortunate to stay on the park after hauling down (I think) Wright less than a minute after being booked for a full on rugby tackle. Collum was fucking dreadful throughout though. Think the best non decision of the game was not booking the guy who took Spoony down by the neck after beating him all ends up.

Hopefully Wright’s injury isn’t serious because he’s a massive player. But having Swanson available to come off the bench is a nice bonus.

Apparently he said it "looked like a game between two teams who'll be fighting relegation"..

Thought that was a decent game, both sides going for it but Kilmarnock’s shape was causing us all sorts of problems with them getting so much space in front of the defence. Can only echo the shouts about Davidson, Joe and Tanser, all three fantastic, and Tanser is certainly no back up defender. Been sensational for weeks, great find. Man of the match by a mile was Jason Kerr. Boy is going places.

Thought our offensive players, barring Spoony were off it today though and Killie probably edged it.

I thought Matty did well,  unlucky not to score too.

I hope Willie Miller drowns himself in his tears tonight tbh.
He can't afford tears, he's a sevco-esk business type with no credit after bankruptcy, in lieu of that he can f**k off into the north sea

Pretty much agree with this but would add that Kane looked good up front when he came on without getting any real chances.

Aye maybe, just felt we got weaker when Swanson and Kane came on, and a lack of work rate from Swanson closing down Dicker/Power helped Kilmarnock take a grip of the game. Callachan coming on improved us again (?!)

Just me that thought Kennedy was probably our best player today? He ran his socks off and looked to be a threat for the most part.

It was between him and Kerr for me. Muzz did a power of work too but went missing in spells, probably because he was trying to do too much. Special mention for Wee fucking Scotty Tanser the complete shagger that he is.

Thought we dominated large spells of the game without having that final piece of quality to finish them off, totally bossed the second half. Hope Brophy is back soon as he would not have held back today when others were fannying about instead of having a shot. 

I have no idea how Saints have won five games on the spin as they remind me of Hamilton with the time wasting and claiming  every time one of them fell over or a Killie player had the audacity to tackle the precious souls. 

Disappointed with just the point but we move on to next week and hopefully put a few past poor Neil's lot.
