Strange old game. Ran over them early on, got the goal and Swanson and MOH missed open goals.

Their player dives, gets a penalty and scores, and we become a completely different team. Everything becomes rushed and panicked, and the second goal was just disgraceful.

Second half we couldn't muster a decent chance until Kane got clean through, 1v1 with the keeper, you all know the script with how that went by now.

Really need a striker, if we keep missing chances it absolutely piles the pressure on the defence to be perfect, which isn't happening. Its a rut we've got stuck in and could lead to a battle down the bottom if its not resolved.

Sadly Steven Anderson looked done, and he looked like he knew it judging by his body language.

Decent in the first part of the first half. Get the goal, MOH hits the post...that goes in its a different game. Looked good going forward with decent off the ball runs.

County score and we disappear. No running of the ball and County control the game...particularly in the second half.

Kane's miss when straight through sums him up....if he has to think about a chance he bottles it.

We looked like a side going through pre-season.

Of you look at the slow no of his half hearted slide in for their goal there is definitely a "I'm to old for this shit" look

How long have we been going on regarding the need for a striker and nothing has been done?  This will cost us relegation this season unless it is addressed now.

That is not anything new.

Game should have been out of site before Madman handed them a pen.

Largest tactic punt ball one to Spoony to head on to Kane. Worked a couple of times but mainly didn't or went out of play.

Spoony must have thought that was all he had to do as he did feck all else. Passenger.

That’s the cup gone for us. Totally inept performances by some. Shocking defending for both goals. 

Wage thieves out there. MoH has 2 chances and spunked both away and left Tanser exposed in the second half. Swanson had 2 chances and equally as bad. No need to dwell on Kane’s backpass as he’s been doing that for years. He may be fit, strong, athletic etc but his ability to perform the role in which he’s paid for is shocking. 3 goals for a bloody striker last season. One on one and decelerates towards the keeper, tippy tapping it and hits it right at him. It’s embarrassing and completely unacceptable. 

Im glad I don’t have a season ticket anymore, utter waste of time, effort and money watching the same shite every game.

Will never forget his moment of glory at Aberdeen that got us into Europe but as of now the only time Kane should wear a St Johnstone top is on his summer holidays. 

Should never have been given a contract extension missed more important chances than any other striker in saints history.

When we are bringing McMilan on to try and salvage something you just know the erse is out the bottom of the barrel.

Kano willing runner etc.etc. is NOT a striker.Henry still raw.Swanson about two stone heavy.Ando being asked for one season too many.

Like or lump it Mr Brown but its time to flash the cash or face the consequences.

With the run of league fixtures we have coming up,it looks pretty grim.

Of the 3 guys who had chances to settle the game in our favour today Swanson was the worst because he just does not seem to care.

Kane is simply not good enough, he tries but there is nothing there.  When he was put straight through in the 2nd half it was blindingly obvious that he had no idea what to do.  Not his fault, you could see he was upset at his failure when he was subbed but I doubt if he is even a Championship striker.

MOH still has something but he still can't make the telling final pass.  At least he worked to get himself into a scoring position with his 1st half chance but there was a defender in the way of the narrow angle he had.

But Swanson!  At 1 - 0 he had an open goal but could not be bothered to take the second needed to compose himself to keep his shot down.  Had he made it 2 - 0 the whole dynamic of the game changes, County were beaten all it needed was that goal and they would have thrown in the towel.

I though Kerr was shockingly bad, rushing out, out of position, losing his man. His fault for the goals.  Cursed captaincy.  

Enjoyed the game very much till they equalised, expecting a reaction second half and didnt get it.  You can see the bickering on the pitch, its not a happy place just now, so back to basics we must go.

Feel sorry for Kane.  His errors are highlighted more easier than some of the defending by Ando and Kerr.  That two are not good together.  

MoH and Swanson still living on their first stints with us... they left us and did nothing, why are we surprised they do nothing most games. Exact reason we should stay well clear of signing May..  just not performing to the levels they once did.  

Im not interested in the next 2 friendlies in the league cup.  I've already booked myself a dark cave for the weekend when we play Celtic... no light at the end of tunnel and our opening league fixtures are very tough.   TW has killed the confidence of his team, come on, fix the bloody changing room, style of play!

All three are not what we need, but that’s what we have till brown opens the wallet, the boy hendry seems immune to criticism but getting past the raw and young stage now and this is the season where he needs to come of age, but not seen that much to convince he is the answer

Swanson also had a chance when was right through & turned back rather than have shot.

The ball also sat up well for Muzz but instead of putting his laces through it ,he tried to pass it.

I think that this is unfair on MOH actually, he was unlucky today and was one of the few players that looked like they wanted to be there. Agree on Swanson. I want him out the club and fast. 

Also agree with you on May. Apparently that's not a popular view though.
