but why are killie so good this year?  it cant be their pitch, we have gone to rugby park and beat them and they have never been a team that has put doubt in the minds of saints fans 

They have a decent manager.

Poor from Saints - midfield never got going and in Kennedy and Mikey we had wingers that didn't get too far forward. Defence was doing ok but lost a soft og and then a daft penalty - the mood Madden was in the home team were getting the benefit of all the decisions - e.g. the booking for Hendry which all but nullified him. At least we had Zander to keep things respectable even though he could barely stand.

Kerr's 2nd booking was daft - no complaints there. At least Gordon got some game time. Alston did ok until he had to drop back to right-back but Swanson was again guilty of wasting the ball too often. I really fear for his chances in the squad never mind the first team once we have the likes of Watt and Wright back.

Killie are a team brimming with confidence and it showed - between that and the pitch we were up against it. Hopefully the next fortnight can act as an arse-kicking period so we at least finish the season with some entertainment.

 

The trouble is Wright puts out a team that looks attacking but wingers are used as auxiliary defenders. That along with defensive midfielders who rarely get over the halfway line is not a winning combination.

Killie at home are hard to beat & have a manager too good for Scottish football so we can't expect to beat them . its the manner of the defeat that bugs.

I really don't know what you are expecting cagey. If you play wide men then they need to help defend. He regularly plays with a sitting midfielder but to say they don't get over the half way line is not true.
