Saints vs Fakes

Recommended Posts

Lot of setbacks in matches for Saints this season and in situations like today where the team had been playing well. First time really that they've completely wilted though. Atrocious second half.

Some decent footballers at the club but the moment, we aren't a good team.

If any team needs a boost when they’re struggling, we’re the side to play.  

St mirren had scored something like 3 goals all season.. up steps a striker who hasn’t scored and he bags an overhead kick!

Better team for the first half hour, lose a goal and collapse. Second half we did next to nothing other than a couple of O’Halloran runs.

Kerr did okay against obika, but the big lad completely bullied Duffy. Obviously it was noted, as most of the second half he played on Duffy’s side and they caused problems with just about every attack with balls over the top.  Even when our centre backs won the header, it was never a clean clearance due to the pressure they were under- Stevie May take note - and it was invariably st mirren’s hungrier centre midfielders who picked up the second ball.

That second half was worryingly bad. For all our superior players, St mirren were everything we are not. Organised, fight for each other, and look like a team rather than a bunch of individuals.

Did our midfield win a tackle all game?

We’re due to score against somebody! On the whole I think we’re playing reasonably well, but lack a cutting edge. A win here 2-0 to the real Saints



I thank you

What are you on about? 

Kennedy took a dive in the first half yet he wasn’t mentioned along with Mullen.
Very good result today & fairly routine victory. Can’t remember Hladky having to do anything past about 30 mins and before that there was nothing particularly troublesome.
That second goal was a great team goal, ball didn’t leave the deck until Mullen put it in top corner. We dragged St Johnstone players all over the place for it. Obika was a different player second half, he won everything against Duffy. I think he’s going to be a complete enigma as he’s more than capable just only shows it in patches. At Livingston everything bounced off him today, second half, the ball stuck to him. Tough run of away games now to try scrape a couple of points out of.

I've seen some gutless shite on that pitch over the years, mostly from St Mirren, but that second half from the Saintees was right up there with the worst. 4 or 5-0 wouldn't have flattered us in the end.

*sigh* yes, but over 50% of those goals were against the best two clubs in the country. In the other 6 games we've been fine and just unable to win (looking at missed penalties).

This is a non-OF table.

... folk seem to be acting like we're some awful side who ship goals and are Dundee-esque. Compared to St Mirren we've lost less, conceded one more goal and scored more, all after playing a game less.

We've got three of the four teams above us in our next three games. If we're still bottom of this table, and do end up with the worst GD, after those three games, then I'll change my opinion.

Another good non-OF result to add to your wee table today.

We were awful until we scored. We were far better in the second half and Mullen was unlucky not to score before he did. All that was needed was Broadfoot standing on top of the ball to round things off nicely.

Well that was a canter. Should have been 5-0 , but no complaints. 

The Sainteeees look doomed already.  Excellent.

Heads gone award of the day must go to St Johnstone's number 33 (Kennedy). Toys well and truly thrown.

We did well in the second half. That was a strange game though, we could have easily been 2-0 down after 20 minutes but then we should have won by more in the end.

 

Broadfoot was outstanding, he played a big part in both goals and cruised through the game. It was good to see both full backs getting further up the pitch, it definitely made a big difference.

 

Foley and Magennis have been two of our better players but oddly I didn’t think either played well today. Foley needs to stop squaring it every time he’s in the box! S McGinn looked understandably rusty in the first half but definitely grew into the game. Andreu was excellent second half, he really took on the Flynn role of chasing everything down and keeping the play moving.

 

I’m very pleased for Obika and Mullen. I don’t agree that Obika was better second half though. Morias looked lively when he came on, albeit against a team that had basically chucked it.

 

I’m stunned by how gutless St Johnstone were in the second half. I can’t remember ever seeing a Tommy Wright team half as bad as that. Stevie May is finished and Zander Clark is shite.

To be fair to him, he was the one Saintees player who looked like he gave a f**k and didn't spend the whole second half hiding. No wonder he was frustrated.

Great performance buds, strikers both score crackers and yet another clean sheet. Thought Fermers looked poorer than Dundee, May oooft ffs. Onwards and upwards Saints

Poor from DZ, very passionate about his club and keen to share his views perhaps he should keep them to himself if he’s enraged by those disagreeing with him.
