Ross County vs St. Johnstone - the Ricky Foster Derby

Recommended Posts

Davidson was up a fraction early for the header, probably compensating for a poor first attempted clearance. I thought it was a free kick.

I fight Chris Kane's corner but to fail with both those chances at the end is so poor. As a striker, what more do you want?

Disagree with you there. Gardyne is under no obligation to jump for the ball at all. Of course that’s a foul.

His other input was just as bad. There's no hiding from it, he is nowhere near good enough for Saints.

Seen them given the other way in favour of a Centre back when a Striker does not jump. And always when it is against a goalkeeper. Not doubt we will get Sportscene verdict tonight.

Just seen the highlights on Saints TV. 

First viewing thought Ralston could've done more with his clearance for the first goal, but a different angle shows the County player manages to get a toe in. Again we fall asleep defensively, and, again, its Davidson who's found ball watching.

Penalty there was a clear foul, and argument Swanson had lost control of the ball but daft to tackle him there anyway. Poor penalty.

May's goal was perfect, exactly how we need to him play, and exactly the type of goal we weren't scoring before and havent scored in years, just beautiful. 

Dont see what happens before our second to talk about the apparent foul, but keeper looks a bit dodgy, ball takes a bounce but it's hardly rocketed at him.

Davidson with a stupid tackle. Every fucking week he does that exact thing and gives away a foul, you think he'd have learned by now. Free kick was unreal, not much you can do about that.

Kanes misses are embarrassing, twice hes got a clear sight of goal, and a chance to have a clean hit with nobody near him. First one he just falls over as he shoots, for no reason. Second one he takes a touch, and then falls over as he shoots for no reason. An actual striker takes one of those chances, at least. After about two seasons of him bottling simple chances you'd think we'd have given up by now, instead we extended his contract 😂

It was mixed, some nice touches and some poor ones. I think if he takes one or both of those chances, the rest doesn't get mentioned. I think the consensus has always been he's a third or fourth choice. Saints are never going to be able to afford supreme quality in that area and it's one where we should be looking to develop our own players for. 

Of more concern to me is Kerr still going backwards, that chance he gifted Fraser in the second half was alarming. Also worrying that despite having another decent game, Ralston makes another error for their first goal when he doesn't clear his lines. And the xG haters will be sad to know that Clark will probably be marked down for that first goal. The initial save probably won't even be recorded since it was the same move.

Still more positives than negatives but those issues are probably why it was one point instead of three. 

Wonder when Amy will be uploading her videos?

Surely, even you as the last bastion of the Kane fight, have to agree Hendry deserves his chance to play as main back up to May now?

Must admit that The Earth Wind and Fire song was pretty funny and pretty clever for your lot but chanting about one of your ex players wife, a player you gave player of the year awards to and was banished to the reserves due to having the balls to argue with the big failure of a dictator you have as a manager reaffirms the petty nonentity of a club you are that I had forgotten about since your delightful fans were spitting on Ritchie Brittan. Stay classy. Hope you get relegated

If he was the kind of striker who takes both chances we wouldn't have went for Stevie May in the summer, he's not though. There are several strikers playing for teams well below us who would have finished those chances, probably on lesser wages too. I thought Clark was ok yesterday, Kerr not so much. Ralston and Duffy look like young players imo, Vihmann is shit scared when the ball comes anywhere near him. Ali McCann was very good, as was Matty and Danny.

I have to say the level of misogyny in this thread is appalling.

Hard to understand why Saints fans arent exactly happy about a woman spreading, multiple different, lies about our manager in the press for absolutely no reason, tbh.

Since Foster fucked off from training after hurling abuse at Wright shes been on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, in the papers and on the radio claiming three different versions of events, with each one increasingly getting more and more abusive towards Wright.

But aye, shes a woman so we should all just sit quietly and let her away with it? 

Ricky Foster is an absolute c**t of a man and even hes stayed out of it, which says everything.

I think this has more to do with the confidentiality clause than anything else. 

Imagine having your loudmouth wife spouting all the pish Amy has?  There's actually no reason for her to come out with any of it, just show some dignity woman. Extremely embarrassing for the boy.

Foster told his mum she wasnt getting to his wedding, by letter, on her birthday, I doubt he cares about honouring agreements.

But aye, both Foster and TW left it with saying how they'd appreciated Fosters time at the club and it was best for everyone to part ways, then she comes steaming in and starts flinging insults at Wright.

Mrs Foster has lost the plot on Instagram. What a disgusting accent, by the way.

Please share. Thanks.

I think I had him on my bench ahead of Kane for yesterday. Undoubtedly if CH does well in training over the next fortnight, he should get an opportunity to do what Kane couldn't, when we travel to Paisley.
