    Jason Kerr

    Watched McKenna again last night. No way is he better than Kerr. I've never seen him play well, don't get the hype at all.

    Season Tickets

    The e-ticketing is a welcome move forward. Would be interesting to understand how they will implement a few things. At the moment I have my boy on my season ticket - I assume he'll get a separate card or will my card allow two admissions? If I decide to bring my other kid along will I need to print off / download a ticket for her in advance even though she's under 12 or will they be let through? You'd think eventually we'll want to be turnstile operator free so you wonder how they will manage the free entry for u12s.
  3. True, but on the flip side we're still playing the same style of football that leans towards a forward who's good in the air. All of our creativity is in wide areas and putting balls in the box. Now if we could find a central midfielder who can take the ball in, drive forward and pick passes and strikers with good movement then I'm with you. Otherwise we're stuck between two styles.
  4. We have Foster, Tanser, Kennedy, Wright, O'halloran, Swanson and Wotherspoon to deliver balls from wide areas but nobody who can attack a cross or run across a defender. Some of the balls into the box today were ok but neither Kane or Hendry could get a run on the defenders and attack them. In some games you need to be able to mix it up in this league and I think we lack that option, particularly when we have no Davidson and particularly when we rely on crosses so heavily.
  5. I think in isolation that would he fine but that was an identical performance to the last game at New Douglas Park (or whatever it's called this week). Just like last time both centre halves were absolutely murder and we got overran in midfield. Aside from Foster and Spoony combining up the right a few times the away fans were given nothing to cheer about. Maybe an unpopular opinion but we would do worse than someone like Oakely or Davies in our squad to allow us to change things. They won absolutely everything in the air for the second time against us and made our defenders look poor. If we bring in two strikers I'd like one of them to be good in the air.
  6. We had a Spoony shot cleared off the line. That was on target. To be fair, he also had 3 or 4 other good efforts on goal so at least one of them was trying.
  7. Exactly the performance I wanted from him in front of the scouts
  8. I'm talking about actual assists. Even this season with Tommy trying to play him deeper and central he's still our most assists from midfield. Check the stats sites.
  9. Spoony makes mistakes because unlike the rest of our team he tries to pass the round thing rather than scud it as hard as he can. He's a quality player who when played in his correct position is one of out best players. He tackles well, has great feet and always works well with our fullbacks in wide areas. Where he's totally underrated is his assists. Statistically he's season after season our most creative player. Today, he slipped Davidson in for a chance and put one right on Kane's head. He also put two other fantastic balls in that could easily have ended in goals. Granted, he's not a central midfielder and I share every fans frustrations when he plays there. However to say he's not good enough for us in my opinion is nonsense.
  10. Up there with one our best performances of the season. Davidson was incredible, harking back to his performances that seen him called up to the Scotland squad. He had everything, including a finely taken goal. Spoony and Craig also had fine games. You can't deny that when Spoony plays wide we play better football. He works so well with whichever fullback he plays with. Two fingers to the twats in the stand that are on his back constantly. Good player. No failures at the back either with a special mention to Tanser who was class again. Strikers worked hard and caused problems. Kane should have had a few goals again, his finishing is poor. He's a nuisance though. Well played Saints.
  11. Comfortable in the end but could have been different if Dundee took some of their chances. Matty was terrific and we had good interplay up top. Some nice moves. Seeing a lot of praise for Callachan. I don't get it. He did some good work at times and there is a player in there somewhere but his positional sense is horrendous and he gets caught the wrong side of his man time after time after time leaving us exposed. We always seem vulnerable to the counter when he plays.
  12. Much better going forward, creating a string of chances. Same old in the midfield though, Craig and Callachan overrun and leaving the defence exposed . Wingers not providing cover either. Will be more goals in this one.
  13. I guess what I'm saying is I don't want us to be shitfesting 1-0 results and playing for time in the corner in the 85th min. Let's go and try and get back to trying to play football.
  14. Feeling hopeful we see a reaction from Saturday. If I was to pick the lineup I'd go with: Clark Foster Gordon Kerr Tanser O'Halloran Davidson Craig Kennedy´╗┐´╗┐ Swanson Kane OR (if there is any hope or desire in keeping Watt) Clark Foster Gordon Kerr Tanser O'Halloran Davidson Craig Swanson Watt Kennedy
  15. I'll wait until the full details are made public before commenting. There is always two sides to these stories. Regarding Swanson - we're basically bottom six now and with a healthy cushion on the teams below us. We should absolutely be using the next 7 games to get Mikey and Swanson back firing. These guys have all the talent in the world. Tommy needs to figure out how to get them playing. I'm not that bothered about results now - he can be as experimental as he wants. Lets make sure we find out what works for next season.
