St Mirren Are Getting It


Recommended Posts

As it says in the title - this mob are getting it lube-less on Saturday. I expect a backlash from the team, similar to the Dundee Utd game, except they won't score. 4 or 5 nil.

Agree.

 

If not, sack everyone.

We will probably win easily and follow up with a shocker the following week :lol:

 

Hopefully we pump them.

Oh god 🤷🏻‍♂️ I hope your right but I’m past being over confident. A Dundee Utd like win is a nice bonus for me now

Every game in this league is hard and a potential upset.Until the players drum that into themselves I take nothing for granted.We are a good team but we cannot afford off days.

What can possibly go wrong🙄

Great post - sums things up perfectly.  :notworthy:

Can't see it. We seem to not be very comfortable with winning football games.

 

6 league wins in 14 tell me that.

 

Can't wait until we get more not fit for purpose 'strikers' in January.

Totally different from the Utd game. St Mirren will sit in and it will be more like the Dundee game. Hopefully we can take our chances when they come and not loose any daft goals

We destroyed Utd just two games ago with no 'striker.'

 

We are a good team but just need to show it consistently.

 

I think Utd coming at us helped though, St Mirren are unlikely to be as bold.

Nil nil or 1 all is my prediction. We will have more of the ball tho

I think it will be a different game with them sitting it but let’s get in about them and give them a real doing.

We need to defend better. 

We're conceding too many goals. 

 

Bob needs to rein in the all out attack, be more pragmatic and we'll win more games. 😁

 

A 2-0 win will do me nicely.

Right now that performance against Dundee United looks like a blip. Any sort of win will do.

We could do with scoring more too, last home game aside.

Score more, lose less. You may be on to something.

It sounds simple but that's been the problem in most home games this year.

To be fair we are unbeaten at home this season. Too many draws though, obviously.

We are currently top of the ‘home’ table...and only Celtic have a better ‘home’ goal difference.

 

It’s a problem I don’t overly mind having.

But that's largely based on the last game.

Our home form is not fantastic

Last 4 home games we have scored 11 and conceded 3, that’s decent form.

 

The last 15 of the Dundee game aside I have been pleased with what we are doing at Tynecastle.

5 goals is now the score to beat in every game this season. 

 

It would be :pleasingao: if St Mirren were the team to be on the receiving end of it.

2 ways to look at stats 

Won 6 failed to win 8

Unbeaten in 12 only lost 2

6 draws and 0 defeats is as good as 2 wins and 4 defeats. Only difference is the other team only gets a point too. Probably why we are still 3rd. We are a flash in the pan team.

If we get a penalty Boyce may be on the scoresheet.

Much as we all dislike St Liedown, we need to acknowledge that Goodwin has them well organised and hard to beat.  They have some good players too, notably McGrath and their keeper, Alnwick.  I'd take any win but do not expect a goal fest.

I loved how he reined in the all out attack at Aberdeen and Motherwell.

With all due respect they have scored 1 goal in their last 3 matches and have no wins in their last 5, yes they are well organised and don't concede alot but if we can get an early goal we should be mauling them at home, whether that happens or not will be up to our attacking players but a club like us should be battering them at home, I expect 3-0 minimum, anything else is disappointing imo let's do these pr

1cks!

Honestly I was thinking someone was going to get hammered, then we put 5 past DUFC, but then we lost, now it’s become a bit of a question mark for me, where do we go from here? To get 3rd and that coveted group stage European football it will bring we need to put a consistent run of 1-0, 2-0 and 2-1 type wins against teams we are expected to beat together. That doesn’t necessarily mean an unbroken run, just a run in the games we’re expected to win.

 

Thats the one big thing that Neilson can point to in his career, he’s done that. Needs to to it again now. Put together these runs of 3-4-5 bread and butter wins together. We’ve got Celtic and Rangers in December so the other games, St mirren, Livi, Dundee, Ross co, St Johnstone. Get the bread and butter wins and any result against the old firm a bonus

D Utd came to win so lots of space for us to explot.

 

Liedown will park the bus - and the vast majority of teams struggle against this. 

 

more bothered we stop letting in sloppy goals - as after that, even a fluky goal = 3 points

That Motherwell game was a lesson in how to dismantle us. I hope other clubs don't show their players a re-run of the whole game. They bullied us and won countless second balls. Please Hearts, do whatever it takes for that scenario to never repeat itself - especially on our own patch.

We said the same before Dundee... will take a win, any win. A Dundee Utd style performance would definitely be great though. In hospitality so will be well oiled regardless though!

I agree. I'd rather be a bit cautious, verging on pessimistic. Everytime I've been over confident and jumped on the "this could be the week someone gets spanked " train,we've dissapointed. We were wary off

DU, that worked out OK. So I'll go for a scrapy win.

Probably. That's what we've come to expect with Neilson as manager - we are a complete Jekyll and Hyde of a side.

One of the few clubs whose recent form is worse than ours. Time to turn it on and dish out the elusive "doing"!

 

Best away record in the league (after Celtic and Rangers). Approach with caution.

Agreed and how we respond to that will define  our season.

I love the thread title.

 

It has a 70's/80's "you're gonna get yer feckin heid kicked in" tone.

 

That won't happen off the pitch, of course, but hopefully Hearts will terrorise St. Mirren on it, GA style.
