This thread will start really good when the frame-by-frame screenshots of the "violent play" get posted.

It's a hard one. Obika miscontrols and knocks it on rather than actually meaning to slip it past the keeper. It's debatable whether he would have got to it before the defender as well after that. But then you could say all of that only happens as he anticipates he is about to be clattered by lewis who had no chance of getting the ball and is reckless and out of control. I can see why it was only given as a yellow in real time but that was a red all day long in VAR world. Who'd be a referee.

Either way, a penalty should be a goal 95% of the time, never mind the open goal after it. Add to that the countless free headers we squandered in the first half, can only blame ourselves.

Yes, indeed, I'm sure Rangers will score from their penalty on Wednesday.

Have to say, excellent support from the St Mirren fans the day.


It sure was.

They never stopped for the whole game, similar to our visit to Paisley earlier in the season. What a difference they make

Was still violent play. Straight red and penalty. 

It clearly was NOT violent play.

But if the current double jeopardy rule is that giving away a penalty in these circumstances is only a yellow if a legitimate attempt was made to take the ball; then it clearly IS a red for that reason.

If Saints score against the sub keeper, then you've got to imagine the Dons would be bricking it for the last 7-8 minutes of the game.

But ho hum; yellow was awarded, keeper made a double save - and it's 3-0 to Dons on points collected.
