Motherwell Vs St Mirren 09/08/14

Recommended Posts

Hard to remember when I have been less interested or up for the start of a new season as much as this one.

 

I'm in exactly the same position. The Europa debacle and lack of signings have resulted in me losing a lost of interest. I've hardly even checked these boards since the Stjarnan game.

 

Will still be there tomorrow though.

My grandpa was saying the same thing last night, he arranged his saturdays around the football.

Not the only ones. My old boy and I were saying the same. Both of us are pretty scunnered with the football at the moment. Think we peaked excitement after the Dons game and quick re signing of players.

 

I'll still be there tomorrow but can't say I am excited in the slightest.

 

With the injuries tomorrow I have genuinely no idea what the team will be defensively ....

 

Carsy - two off Cummins/Neill/Kerr - Ferguson

Ainsworth - Leitch - Lasley - Law

Sutton - McHugh

 

Oooft..... Midfield looks decent but the rest is a complete worry!! Hopefully McManus or Reid are fit to slot in somewhere.

So is McManus now injured?

 

4/1 available on St Mirren the other day seems very generous now.

 

They are 4.20 right now on Willy Hill.

Reid posted a photo of his shirt with name/number on it saying he was buzzing for the game, on Instagram. So, looks like he may be good to go and play!

So defence isn't that bad. Relatively strong but how many are fully fit??

Anyone have the Clyde2 player working? All I get is "There has been an error loading this player" even if I fire up my VPN.

It was 0-0 when i posted and the text updates said we were getting pumped so at the time yes it was embarrassing. But a shite performance and good result will do me

Well it wasn't an especially convincing performance but a wins a wins, especially with the injury situation.

 

St. Mirren really only have themselves to blame for not getting something out of the match because they, and Callum Bell in particular missed, half a dozen good chances.

 

To be fair Twardzik made a couple of excellent saves that saved us on a couple occasions.

 

For once we were clinical up front and took our chance while St. Mirren missed all of theirs.

 

Although we got a clean sheet, Reid and Kerr in particular gave us some hairy moments by playing far too high up the field.

 

Attacking wise we didn't create very much with Sutton and Ainsworth having very quiet afternoons. Erwin deserved his goal, he's raw but he was probably one of our better outfield players.

 

Overall, I'll take the 3 points but we still need to improve a lot, it's going to be much tougher in the next couple of matches you suspect.

If Thompson was fit we would have lost by 3 or 4. Abysmal.

 

He wasn't and we didn't.

Dare i say it but i disagree with earlier poster thought Kerr (apart from a bit of hesitation that nearly let to an og) did fairly well - I agree Reid was rotten. Kerr at least looks capable when played in his normal position. Not any standout performances but Erwin, law in spells and Kerr were the best for me.
