St Johnstone 1 Aberdeen 0, Saturday 10th April 2021

Recommended Posts

We've returned to a full on 5-2-3/3-4-3 whatever. One open play goal playing that formation at home all season, with the context we didn't really change it until after Christmas.
Goal fest awaits.

I know it’s just a stat, but it feels a bit of an unfair one since it arbitrarily excludes away games (and the 4 goals in the two games at Hamden). We haven’t been particularly high scoring in other formations either... would be interested in the direct comparison taking in all games.

Think Melamed is either away or will be sat on the bench thinking he should be away - being dropped when he scores in basically every game he starts can’t be a great boost for the case for him to sign a new deal.

Its much better away, from memory, but then again its a formation built for counter attacks. I don't think it works at home generally, as teams are happier to sit in. I can't see Aberdeen being particularly expansive, so suspect we'll struggle to do much apart from pass lots.

Maybe Middleton having pace/1v1 ability changes things though, we've not had that up front all season what with O'Halloran turning into a fucking donkey.

Not a team to get excited about but the manager has credit in the bank so we'll see how it goes.

Buzzing for this 

I usually wait to see how we're doing by half time until I get the glue out, but each to their own.

I opted for the 7.2% O-G Hazy Brewdog rather than glue.

Obviously can't  watch this rubbish completely sober though. One thing I will miss next season when we're allowed back is the ability to sit and get quietly pished while watching us draw 0-0.

Birra Moretti here, but I do have a bottle of isopropyl alcohol which may be more appropriate.

This has been shambolic so far - looks a matter of time before Saints score

All Saints so far. Nae goals though. I think Conway took his eye off the ball. It was there to be poked past the keeper. Sake!

I thought Conway could have had a wee swing at that through ball Rooney played earlier on when the keeper came out, he seemed to hold back.

saints have have us absolutely rattled already 😅

Fingers crossed this playing out from the back stuff is a Stephen Glass thing, and not a Paul Sheerin thing.

Kane better knock another grand off his wage demands too. Fucking hell.
