Bryson on for Conway? Anyone? Anyone know why? Anyone?

I've absolutely no idea what shape we're now playing.

It looks for all the world like we've decided to sort the mess in the middle by playing without a right winger.

And of course, the now unmarked left back has space near our box.

I get more worried by Davidson every week.

Considering the second half, I'll take that.

We were a shambles at times in midfield.

Control the whole second half and lucky to escape with a point. Clark digging us out of a hole in two consecutive games.

I'll take a draw from that. I feel like I say that every time we play St Johnstone!

We were playing well until Donaldson's brainfart. Hopefully Morris and Iacovitti are fit again soon.

That free kick at the end sums up the decision making in our team. Ten seconds to go-literally the last kick and a chance to put everyone in the box and launch it in, abs you do that? For fucks sake. We’re probably due a slice of luck at some stage in front of goal but you’re not going to get that if you make cretinous decisions like that.

That second half was one way traffic but yet again we fail to convert the chances we do make, we fail to create enough overall, and we rely on Zander bailing us out with one extremely good save.

I think this has become the norm for a majority of Saints fans, certainly every one that I know.

 

Chris Kane is nowhere near good enough for a Premiership side, where that puts Hendry and Melamed f**k knows.

After watching him, the only positive I can take is Shaun Rooney at right back might actually help us. He commits players and is a bulldozer. At centre back we get countered on a lot down his side. With a little less covering to do it might actually help him.  
 

Other than that, another poor performance. Second half was a marked improvement, but still lucky we didn’t lose. We need to find some actual grit and goals otherwise we’re heading down. Worryingly, other than Spoony coming on, every single decision Davidson made hindered us, it looks like he’s lost faith in himself more than anything.

Kane indeed does do all the hard work and the manager can rely on him to work hard etc like he said.

What can't he rely on him to do though? Score. You can chase lost causes all you like. Goals win games. 

First half after another shambles of a goal to give away I thought it was about to be yet another 1-0 defeat. County gifted us a way back into the game. Then with a fairly good second half performance we should have won the game but as usual we don't. 

MOH - wasted shirt. He simply doesn't have the game intelligence to play the role he's been asked to play. Massive difference with Spoony.

 

Edited by Mr Positive, sometimes.

It's beyond luck now. You can't keep leaving players unmarked in the box, and miss the target with almost every shot you get in the box, and expect anything.

We arguably win the game if, at any point, we'd worked on defending throw ins after conceding two almost identical goals last month. But yet again we leave someone free near the penalty spot.

Would gladly swap him for Hughes right now.

I dont know how Clark has not just saved that header from Watson, but actually got enough on it to put it wide. I was already wheeling away in celebration.

No, you wouldn't.

You'd be playing Vigurs at LCB and wingers as centre forwards simply so he can blindly stick to a set up that leaves us wide open on counter attacks.
