St mirren on Boxing Day
#1
A huge game for yogi and the club as a whole! We actually made a decent account of ourselves at park head and played some good stuff , hoping for a more attacking formation for this game obviously!
Hoping McKay plays from the start and draper Kelly and Paton retain their places with vigurs dropping out 

No fans in for this one unfortunately due to the change in COVID tier

The 'performance' against Celtic was a carbon copy of all our recent games. Decent possession, absolutely no cutting edge.
We haven't looked like winning a game in a while...... here's hoping that changes.

Ref was a disgrace today. Only seemed to give decisions one way

well sorry nothing changed again today we can make excuses like we played half of the game with 10 then went down to 9 but even before that everything was the same to slow going forward second to every ball and getting pushed of the ball to often as usual we get to the half way line then turn and pass it backwards infuriating to watch every week on the odd occasion we do manage to get forward we try walking it into the net we practice shooting before every match god knows why because we will do everything we can to avoid shooting for the next 90 min

Nothing wrong with the performance before the man got sent off we had the better of the game and more chances , jak Alnwick pulled off a great double save to deny us , the first sending off cost us the game and I’m sure Reid will learn from it , draper should never have been sent off

We're going down
No real positives to take from that one. As for the red cards, Reid was naive, Draper was weapons-grade stupid
The really galling thing is that St Midden didn't have to play particularly well in order to get the win. We'd have been looking at a real horsing if Morias had any sort of final ball for them
Boyle v Tremarco on Wednesday is going to be some laugh
Kelly's a tidy footballer but suffers hideous nosebleeds whenever he gets anywhere near the 18 yard box, had 2 very presentable chances that he should have done more with at 11 v 11
Can only assume we've already had an indication from Celtic that they'll be recalling Doohan in January
At least the fish suppers are good at Arbroath

Why on earth has the new manager been left with Kettlewell’s background staff! That’s where the problems stemmed from and can’t believe RB has still got an active influence!

I asked the same question last week but given the lack of answers I guess there is no money to move them on or no vacancies in the youth set up Big Grin

By your thinking Scott Thomson should have been let go once the management team of Dodd n McIntyre were sacked.

To me it makes perfect sense to have the backroom staff staying the same as means manager has folk alongside who know the club and the players making the transition that bit easier.

To put it another way in a non football sense  if a manager is sacked does that mean all support staff should also be sacked???

If it stops the jobs for the boys mentality that the club currently has, then yes.

I'm still seething at the performance, the red cards...pretty much everything about the team right now is out of balance, underperforming and just plain awful. Away to Hibs could be a kicking if they turn up.
