Aye blame the ref when Mugabi is a fucking idiot. He didnt need to make an attempt. Do that and you ALWAYS give the ref a decision to make

Problem is it was Gallagher that he tangled with !!!!!

Maybe I'm going bonkers, but what has that penalty got to do with Mugabi? 

I thought it was for Dec putting both arms on Erwin's back. Erwin then takes a tumble to force Madden into making a decision.

Definitely some positives there. First half was full of endeavour and some neat football at times. The first touch was better than I have seen in a long time, they all had an extra yard in them and a willingness to get involved. Unfortunately, the second half performance was too reminiscent of most of this season. No cohesion, the ball would not stick up top and the midfield were largely spectators.

A lot of work to be done. Let's hope for some new faces to freshen things up, but at least I now have some hope that we can gain some points between now and the end of the season.

"Mugabi doesn't need to give the referee a decision to make" is absolutely mental patter, even for this site.

 

He's won the ball cleanly, knocked it away, and Madden's given a penalty. How the fuck is that Mugabi's fault :lol::lol::lol:

Ouch....just got to Q which one of a red card, penalty or goal he will give away this week. Still I suspect GA would rather have OHara in midfield. 

Penalty

Looked to me like Mugabi ever so slightly came through Erwin to get the ball.  No way it's enough contact to make him go down but it's enough to give Madden a decision to make.

Obviously I'd rather have the 3 points than 1, but in many ways the absolutely perfect result for Graham Alexander.  We get a point and move off 2nd bottom spot. Not something I'd have predicted last weekend! More importantly though this sounds like our typical performance this season for our new man to see for himself in his first game - the good and the bad. 

* players showing some skill

* not pressing home our advantage whilst on top

* some players underperforming

* lack of character

* lack of experience/streetwiseness

* late slump

* inability to see a game out

* losing a silly goal

After the decision Madden gestured a pull on a shirt sleeve which would suggest he gave it against Dec.

Similar to a lot of performances this season,reasonable enough in the first half and then performance levels drop in the second and we can't see it out.a point isn't the worst result  and hopefully we can build on it but we really need our game management to be better if we're going to start picking up better results,as for madden,he has as much love for us as craig thomson,he's a fucking arsehole.

Very encouraging first half and it was refreshing to see us carry a genuine goal threat with all three forwards getting into goal scoring positions. St Mirren had the upper hand in the 2nd half and while it was never a pen, I can’t grumble at a point. 

Baffled by some of the digs at Mugabi, I thought he was very good today and looked to have regained some confidence. O’Hara also impressed despite his early booking.  And while Hastie still has some  way to go, it was nice to see him make a positive contribution.

I certainly wasn't having a dig at Mugabe for his general play. He had, overall, a very good game. I'll need to see the penalty again, but my initial reaction, even before Madden pointed to the spot, was that Mugabe's challenge was a penalty.

IF our traditional second half slumps and late concessions are, at least in part,  down to poor fitness levels, Mr Alexander is the man to sort it.

The assumption is that it was given for the swipe from Mugabi, the tussle with Gallagher didn’t appear to be anything

Not in my eyes. As I watched it live, it was all day long for Mugabe's tackle from behind Erwin. I thought that he clipped his heel as he played through him to get to the ball. I'm happy to be corrected, but that is how I saw it at the time.

It would appear so. But Mugabi was on the pitch so it gave Madden a decision to make apparently.
