St Mirren 1 - 1 Aberdeen

Recommended Posts

Lets hope the dynamic duo back in midfield gives the side a bit more attacking intent.

It can't get much worse than the last 3 games.

0-1.

Will be like when we had Motherwell away back to back few year ago.

Crap in the cup game then win the league game.

2-0 win (Ferguson, Hoban).

Getting Ferguson, McCrorie and McLennan back for this one should help tremendously. But has anyone any idea why McGinn and Cosgrove were subbed off at half time? Injured? Precautionary?? Or just because they were plain shite???

Don't expect it to be pretty but I'll go for a reverse of Saturday's scoreline…..1-2 ( Hayes, Ferguson)

Mcinnes comments on Cosgrove substitution:

“There were no injuries at half time. The changes were just to change the dynamic of the game. We were restricted with what we could do but I felt we needed to get a hold of the ball more. Curtis is maybe better than Sam doing at doing that, and we wanted Jonny to stretch them and we wanted ball carriers on the side.

Be tempted to switch McLennan in somehow.  That team is hellish familiar albeit with a central midfield added.  If I’m Goodwin I’m saying press the ball onto Taylor and wait for the inevitable launch to Cosgrove.

The stuff about our depth not being as good as we thought is harsh, as its all well and good having depth when you have a few players out but we had 9 and 8 missing respectively from our last few matches 

Our entire midfield missing, for one, nobody can legislate for

Is McCrorie available for this?

Sure I heard Mcinnes in an interview saying McCrorie misses one more game.

Really?

I thought the person who had COVID (ie McCrorie) was 10 days, the others who are self isolating 14?

Agree with the above.

Really frustrating though that we came into the matches prior to the injury and covid issues with real hope due to some of our performances.

A total bastard.

Hacking tim cunts have a lot to answer for. Well, at least a wee bit. Pricks

Theres no doubt we have missed Ferguson and McCrorie in the centre.

I think we've also missed the ball carriers as DM put it on the wings.

Hedges has been our outstanding player, but we had been reliant on him the last few games and it's always easier for attacking players if there are a few options instead of just one.

We'll still miss Wright and Watkins, but hopefully with Ferguson, McCrorie and McLennan potentially dropping in, we will give St Mirren a far better game than last week

Main priority for this match - Get Funso Ojo to fuck.

And Matty Kennedy as well, whilst we are at it.

I agree. I'm not Connor McLennon's biggest fan but he's better than Kennedy, and at least scores the odd goal.

Arguably missed Watkins McLennan and Wright as much as we missed Ferguson and Mcrorie.  Given those names I accept the point re the numbers missing.

That said, I could defend against McGinn and Cosgrove, more or less confirmed by Derek hooking them both at half time.  The pattern of the game against both Sides (I’ll give him the latitude of accepting the hun result in the circumstances) was utterly predictable.  Seemingly back to the Smiffy model of trying to see out 1-0s with no apparent model of where the 1 is coming from.  Rice, Goodwin, previously Wright they’ve all got him completely sussed on that front, that’s the problem.

Worked wonders as well didn’t it.

 

He noticed St Mirren filled their own defensive 3rd every time we got possession. Literally put 10/11 men behind ball,  so his tactical genius to this was to take off one attacking mid for a CH & swap strikers to lessen the congestion in St Mirrens half.

I'd play McLennan on the right and Kennedy in the two behind the striker with Hedges. 

I just don’t see what Kennedy brings.

Has he scored? 
Hardly any assists.

Barely gets past a man 

Not particularly quick

Wasn’t convinced when he signed & he’s done little to change my opinion.

I know but we're short of players so he's good enough to get in the side with Watkins and Wright out. It's either him or McGinn for that role and I think McGinn is best used off the bench just now.

Maybe.

Or the alternative is Hedges at no 10 behind two strikers... then again I hate Main & I don’t think Edmondson is very good either.

So much for having the best squad for years.

The biggest maybe.

Why would you do that, out of interest?

Definitely the biggest. 

But there's a fair few who we are waiting to leave next summer. And a few duds. 

As well as what seems like a wee void in the young players ready to come through.

I vehemently dislike Kennedy more and more every time I see him

Youre right in that he hardly contributes to goals,  he isnt very fast and he is an utter weakling shitebag 

Detest that about him and its cost us goals, directly

Good question.

With Watkins and Wright out there's a space in the two behind the striker. 

I just think Kennedy would benefit from the extra space in there and McLennan has the legs to get up and down the wing. 

But there's not a lot in it.
