Aye, but on the "All Activity" feed you don't see the quote. Fair got palpitations for a moment when I saw it.

Dominating possession without creating too many chances. 

A wee bit lucky the ref didn't award St Mirren a pen for Dunne's challenge (even though it was accidental).

St Mirren look happy to sit in for a point at the moment.

McHugh must be disappointing all his haters.

Not a bad game. Hoping we step it up a bit in the second half and score a few, or at least one more than them

Yes, Seen those given many times but nice to get a call going our way. Make up for last weeks PK against Ariyibi ?

Second half St Mirren have changed their tactic of double-marking Ariyibi to just hacking him down any time he gets the ball.

Livi equalise. If both games finish this way we reclaim 7th this afternoon.

Bollocks another late goal given away, 2 in 3 games is not good we should have had 7th sorted by now

Another win thrown away!

We weren’t great but St Mirren never even looked like scoring. 

Subs were all wrong and that possibly cost us.

I love the idea of bringing on the kids but Jamie Semple look terrified any time he got near the ball. Not his fault still young but maybe too many changes near the end for me.

Not sure it was the reason Saints equalised but, why oh why did we not have Livingston at LB, Tait at RB, Cadden RM and Frear LM at the end, instead of all 4 playing out of position?

St. Mirren came for a point and got a point.

Very different game from last week with St. Mirren sitting in and closing everything down.  There wasn't many clear cut chances in the match but I thought there was actually some decent performances today even if it wasn't a pretty game. 

Agree the shape of the team got a bit messy towards the end with the substitutions but not defending balls into the box has been a problem all season.

Totally agree. Mind boggling subs. Frear? Just walk it into corner.

I think the, four on two was it, about a minute before only magnifies the annoyance of conceding. 

Fucking passback! :doh:

That's what I thought was going to happen when Livingstone came on.

Was surprised as well to see Semple playing as a centre midfield as well, I thought he was a forward.

Pretty disappointing in truth. I honestly though with a big away support behind them St Mirren would go for it but far from it they just sat back and we dominated possession without really being that effective. I would be very dissapointed if I was a St Mirren fan. Pretty sloppy overall with no one really standing out, I though we really missed Gorrin, it’s only when he does not play that you see what a difference he makes, McHugh a very poor replacement in my view. I thought Dunn was back to his shaky self and was very lucky at times that the ref saw things in his favour, more than a couple of very rash tackles that could have ended up costing us. The ref was poor but I actually thought he gave a few things in our favour.

I take exception to the above post only in that McHugh was for me the best player we had on the pitch. 

I had money in Turnbull for anytime goalscorer, 1st and last goalscorer so was quite happy when Frear fked up 

I should have known I would regret that. 

Disappointing to not be going to Perth next week above them in the table. 

We were all asking for youth to be given a chance and they were. As a result we lost momentum in last 15 minutes but to fair the St Mirren goal was a belter. And I almost don’t grudge them that with a decent support.

Frear showed today when he came on why he has no future at Fir Park some of his touches were terrible and he should have scored when they broke up the park and scored
