Glad you've managed to find some negatives in what was a pretty clinical victory.

Unsurprising to see some people unhappy and complaining when we win 4-0 comprehensively. It never changes.

Seems we are very much starting to rely on GMS to spark the team, which is all well & good but he is very much a confidence player & as has shown in the past. He fails to turn up on occasion.

I'd say Scott Wright and Frank Ross showed they're capable of giving us a bit of spark too.

Incredible that someone could try and paint GMS playing brilliantly as a negative. :laughing:

That was a great performance, much better than the workman-like 1-0 I thought we'd grind out.

What great play and, on that form, Wright could be the difference for us. GMS brilliant again too.

Wright getting lots of "unselfish" praise for playing in May for his goal, but putting it on a plate for May also showed a very wise/mature aspect to his game, that he got someone on the score sheet who was struggling to even buy a goal before.

4-0 going on 10-0!

Many more days like that please!

Let's be honest we all wish his parents hadn't been brought into it...the world I mean so they could never meet and never have such deranged progeny

4-0 win against a st mirren team who hadn't a clue and mcdougal and his we alls are all slivering at the mouth. Let's be honest it's a one off dickhead.

GMS is finally starting to show his true potential and consistency that he's been lacking since his Dundee United days. Even then, he was struggling with consistency. 

 

Wright was brilliant as well. As others have said, he is reminiscent of a 2014 Peter Pawlett, using his raw pace to burst through players and linking really well with May and Ross.

 

The more I see Gleeson, the more i'm liking him. He's pretty much the "Ryan Jack" replacement that we've missed for a few years, but without the hissing, shedding skin and hunnery.  He's got a calming influence in the middle of the park, linking the defense with the midfield without having to lump it up the park as we've been doing. 

 

May had a decent game again, he definitely needed that goal. He probably should have done better with a couple of his chances, but i'm hoping that the goal will help him regain goal scoring form.  Despite his goal being a "tap in" he took it very well. Controlled the first time hit into the opposite top corner, giving the defender absolutely no chance. 

 

The defense basically strolled it all game. Considine looking as comfortable as he'll ever look in a Dons top.

 

Ross looked good playing alongside Wright.

 

Solid performance. Shame we took our foot off the pedal in the second half, although i think the subs killed the tempo of the game.

Not being negative at all.
It was a brilliant win. I am just not going to get as overly carried away (like some are) with a very convincing win over such a shite side.

The dundee & Hun games were better games to judge on where we are as a team than a one off cup game v a really shite side.

Yous can twist it to sound like I am being overly critical/negative but I think I am being a little more realistic in terms of judging the quality in our side.

The bonus is that we have players to come back in but I am still worried we are very limited in the attacking side of the team. Especially on the occasions that GMS isn't 'on his game' which has been fairly common (actually more common than not) in his time with us.

Wright may have been decent v St Mirren but he's also not as dependable

I still think we need more players in basically.
Beasting a shite st Mirren doesn't change that for me is all I'm saying. Not if we are intent on improving this season & we will have to have improved from last season to just hold onto second place IMO let alone attempt a challenge on Celtic


As I say. See that as a negative all you like but guess that just means I am harder to please than some

We can only work with the material we're given, lots of positives though Shoofta, even you have to agree there?

 

He is he loves all of you.


Lol, stay crazy Shoofta, we all (okay maybe not all) love you too ;)
