Really not getting the mixed reactions to this game. St Mirren are a good side, we got a good result that included a clean sheet.

 

I think there's some really unusual expectations from a lot of people on here. I'm delighted with todays result; a few individual performances to enjoy as well.

 

I'm as pessimistic as they come and not a big fan of the manager, but surely we all have to be happy with the league table tonight?

Some folk use binary arguments (not yourself from previous posts) eg We won, end of. And that's it.

 

There is a suggestion Neilson kicked some arses at half time. That he didn't say 'same again, guys'. This would seem to back fans concerns about the performance to half time, legitimately questioned. It's a fans forum for viewpoints. I can express concerns that are recurring ones - Aberdeen, Motherwell, St Mirren - as a fan yet still be delighted to win, as I was.

At the Gorgie Road entrance the security people were telling everyone they had to show their covid passport. This was causing a fair queue round the corner and up Gorgie Road. Once in, I noticed there was a long queue for the Wheatfield turnstiles too. Were they asking to see everyone's passport round there as well? The ground looked only about half full very close to kick off.

I asked the 2 guys why they weren't just spot checking. They said that club policy was now checking everyone and suggested we should check the club website if we didn't believe them. The club website still says spot checks will be carried out, not 100% checks.

Who tells these security people this information?

Is the information on the club website wrong?

Who actually thinks that checking 17,500 pieces of paper won't cause major delays to getting in and seated, even if fans turn up well before kick off?

We turned up at 2.50 and in the ground at 2.55. Q for the Gorgie moved really quickly and no vaccine checks

They must have abandoned their checks later then. Maybe somebody told them to behave.

They were insistent that everyone was to be checked.

Think they are trying to hit their quota early doors. Queue was fairly long when I arrived at 2.45 but just breezed through in about 5 mins.

Wouldn't surprise me. But who is counting the quota? Turnstile numbers before a certain time? If so, what if more people decide that it's not worthwhile turning up early to be stuck in a long queue?

They should just do the job properly, as per the club says it will happen.

Pretty sure that's the case

When you see your keeper making save after save it must inspire you to up your game. They must have thought it was just a matter of time before they scored but Craig was having none of it. I hope he's as defiant against his old team on Thursday with their fans bemoaning the day he was released.

Aye, he's a good player but he does nothing with it. Where GMS does **** all and has the most goals and assists out of all of them. Barrie no end product McKay. 

 

Quite a good illustration of the inadequacy of the assist stat. Mackay-Steven has 4 assists, but 2 of them were being fouled for penalties (useful skill but not indicative of "end product") and another was a 5 yard square pass outside the box.

 

McKay has definitely been more creative than GMS IMO, it's just that the chances he creates aren't finished or aren't the final pass. Even last week he created 2 good chances in the first half.

 

He definitely needs to start doing better in front of goal though, although the same thing could be said of GMS.

Thought St Mirren had us figured out first half, especially the way they set up at bye kicks.

 

We did adjust for the second half, got the ball forward faster for the most part, and were worth the win for me.

 

Teams figure each other out in this league, we need to keep adjusting, as successes from Aberdeen, Motherwell and the St Mirren first half will be copied.

 

Different kettle of fish on Thursday.

I think we’re quite predictable in terms of how we play. So it isn’t very hard for clubs to set up against us.

 

However saying that we can bypass this by playing at a quicker tempo, which we didn’t do in the first half. We have players who can be aggressive on the press and can put us on the front foot but also take the ball in tight spaces and open up play.

Very lucky to win yesterday against a better team we go in behind at half time. 

 

Nice to see Gms get on the score sheet gets a fair amount of criticism. 

 

Moment of magic from Kingsley. 

 

Need to start faster on Thurs or i fear we will be on the end of a serious ass whooping.

On hearts fc page, write up on Robbie’s reaction -  who is sitting behind Robbie in the dug out? Might just be a bad photo but no idea who he is

If it's the guy with the hat on. Ross Stewart (sub goalkeeper).

I don't think St Mirren are a great side at all to be honest, I think we made them look good because we have confidence issues after losing at Motherwell, they've only won 3 games in 15, but once the first goal went in there was only one winner as you could see the confidence oozing through the team again, it was a tough day at the office but we got the job done and winning ugly is a good attribute to have.

Post match reaction from the free-kick master himself- Stephen Kingsley. 
 

Talks about the art of taking free-kicks, the home form vs away from, what went wrong at Motherwell and how the players will learn from it. 

 

It looks increasingly likely (to me anyway) that he could be of more value to us than Souttar…

Exactly what was said after Motherwell. Learn to win ugly. Looks like the lesson was learned. Graig Gordon again was the difference. A goal for them earlier and it could have been a tougher day.

I can't make up my mind if Motherwell were miles better than St Mirren, or if we were just really poor against Motherwell, even worse than Saturday.

Probably the earlyish goal was the difference last week. Not sure how the game would have went had we went behind on Sat.
