Quite concerned about our injury list after Wednesday night's bruiser.

SR mentioned in his post match interview that there were concerns on a few, I suspect Tanner a big doubt and cannot imagine Frear being fit either for Saturday, maybe our first test for our small squad of players?

A few had cramp last night so i dont think it will be too bad, certainly the guys who came on last night, Maclean, Bowman and Fisher have given Robinson something to think about they changed the game for us last night when they came on.  Tanner was very poor last night so perhaps benching him for Maclean wouldn't be bad idea.

I could see Mclean in, and wouldn't be surprised to see moult rested, but a lot depends on whether we're trying to force him through games to get his sharpness up or not. Fisher and Bowman certainly gave the manager something to think about too.

The dilemma with Moult is he's obviously a few weeks behind the rest after his surgery, and needs game time. So do we give him 30 minutes here or there to get him up to speed or persevere with 80+ minutes every week.

I don't think his fitness is that bad. He has only scored the two free kicks but with better finishing he could have had a couple in both the Rangers and County games.

 

As a few people have said it seems more mental than physical. He missed a few easy chances against Berwick which probably effected him and then got drawn into scrapping with Alves and Cardoso rather than concentrating on his own game against Rangers. On the highlights from last night his body language looked poor and he got booked again needlessly.

 

He'll only get past this by putting the ball in the net.

It's match fitness I'm talking about. And that's all about game time.

Shows the importance of having some decent options and good squad depth if it comes to it.

Would be great to even get a point to get ourselves up and running in the league.

"In his book, "Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower," William Blum warns of how the media will make anything that smacks of "conspiracy theory" an immediate "object of ridicule." This prevents the media from ever having to investigate the many strange interconnections among the ruling class -- for example, the relationship between the boards of directors of media giants, and the energy, banking and defense industries. These unmentionable topics are usually treated with what Blum calls "the media's most effective tool -- silence." But in case somebody's asking questions, all you have to do is say, "conspiracy theory," and any allegation instantly becomes too frivolous to merit serious attention. On the other hand, since my paranoid shift, whenever I hear the words "conspiracy theory" (which seems more often, lately) it usually means someone is getting too close to the truth."

Don't understand the bad feelings ditected at Ryan Bowman. The guy has given his all every time he plays and is a real good honest hard worker. Okay he may not be a prolific goal scorer but he does make some great runs and drags defenders about and never gives them any respite. If he can just get a decent run in the team and score couple of goals then his confidence will rise. He's a worker that plays for the jersey and that will do for me.

On another subject, I cannot believe Cedric Kipre is only 20. What a find! Where has he been hiding? If he keeps playing like this it won't be long before other bigger clubs take an interest. Hope we can persuade him to stay for another season.

Ah, the old McGhee approach of worrying more about the opposition than anything else. Let's hope we don't see a return to that inferiority complex. I know studying your opponents prior to a match is crucial but I'd rather that meant slight tweaks to our set up rather than basing our entire plan on what the opposition are likely to do.

I suspect we'll line up 352 anyway...

So many unknowns about this game.  We've quite a few players suffering knocks and bruises so it'll be difficult to determine our line up.  We'll play 5 in middle though maybe in a 4-5-1 formation if Tanner isn't fit.  We don't yet know who St Johnstone will play up front - one of the strikers may not even be signed up yet.  

 

I'm a bit more confident this season as we're better prepared physically to match Saints.  However they're a more experienced and streetwise team than us and know all the scams, cons and tricks.  We've got a shocking recent record in Perth, admittedly based on little good luck, so its time to rectify that.  I think the team will give the support more to cheer this time round.     


Part of the problem is an unrealistic level of expectation. We see football from all parts of Europe on television daily and fans are expecting....the technical ability and flair they see from Spain's La Liga and the top end of the English Premiership. Thats just not possible. It seems fashion is over-riding common sense.

This is my "home" game for us and quietly hopeful I will finally see us win in Perth. Been up here since 2011 and yet to see them win.

 

Missed only two games since then (Christmas 2011 & October 2012 I think) and was both Motherwell wins. Maybe best staying away!!

 

Quite a poor record in Perth all considered.

We'll line up 3-5-2 - no question. Put all your money and belongings on it.

 

Carson

Kipre Heneghan Dunne

Tait Cadden Bigi McHugh Plumber

Or something else. But probably that.
