  • Hi Chris.
Dons - St. Johnstone - Sat - 3pm
« on: February 21, 2019, 05:57:50 PM »
Always been one of my least favourite away fixtures, primarily because they're very rarely decent watches.  Their league form of late has been pretty woeful, so it was surprising they managed to hold the huns at snake mountain.  But given it's them, I don't doubt it will be a tough fixture.  Last decent result down there was December 2017.  Hopefully the team got the kick up the arse they needed after that lacklustre and unacceptable performance against St.Mirren.  Can't afford to play St. Johnstone into form too, we really need the 3 points.

Could be a toughie, especially with us having defensive injury problems.  Dont have a ticket yet, but intend driving down  & p.a.t.g.

Can't see anything other than a tough game ahead of us tomorrow, both teams not in the best of form and not wanting to lose so I doubt much entertainment will be had by wither set of fans.

We just need a win and as he has shown before over the years DM can send teams out to grind out wins when up against it.

I predict a 1-0 victory to us, Big Sam from the penalty spot.

Just as well we're playing a shite team then. Our away from is decent so I've reasonably hopeful. Our home form is shite and not helped by the fact that most of our fans are fucking arseholes.

Cannot see this being anything other than a very difficult afternoon especially if Logan is still out. Saints have a couple of decent wingers so really cannot go with Ball at right back as that would be a recipe for disaster. That said other than throwing in Miko Virtanen who has been playing right back for the reserves (okay in the one game I saw he played right back) not sure what else we can do. Saw elsewhere someone suggest moving Shinnie to right back and Gleeson into the middle but no idea if that will work. Saints have been struggling of late and have only scored once in their last 6 games picking up only 1 point. Think both teams maybe happy to shitfest for a point.

Shinnie is the best option, I would play ball over gleeson though.

What I think will actually happen though is a back 3 with mcginn as rwb.

He'll stick Ball at RB, I have zero doubt about that, although that doesn't mean I am right ( adding that to save face in case he doesn't play him  :rofl: )

Not sure what to expect, St Johnstone must have a pretty good record against us, they are usually tight, boring affairs with the odd exception, but the likelihood is that it will be another tight borefest, but if we come away with 3 points, we won't really care.

My predictions have been well wide of the mark recently, in where I have predicted a comfortable win for us and it simply hasn't happened, so I will avoid a scoreline, but I think it might be a draw. Hope I am wrong obviously.

What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Tried 5 streams and not one is working. Even RedTV Commentary is very intermittent.

BBC Sport Scotland it is then  :(

Oh, and 1-0 Aberdeen, Shinnie  :thumbsup:

Red TV int'l keeps freezing after 10 seconds of action, not sure if it's just my internet connection or not but usually plays just fine.

Good 3 points, with the added bonus of Killie losing at Livingston, good afternoon's work, gives us breathing space over them now.

Thank fuck we didn't play Shinnie at right back. He's our best midfielder by a long way. Good to see him getting a couple of goals. Only saw the last half hour. Ball looked decent at right back, defensively speaking. Wouldn't be convinced if he had to play there the rest of the season, but if he maintains that level of aggression in the challenge and gets in the face of the winger he might just manage it.

Two good finishes from the captain.
Ran from his own half for the second.
Thought Ball was up there with Shinnie as top performers.
All in really good three points and six away wins in a row.
Now if only we could sort out our home form.

Good stream. Watched bits in between chores this afternoon. Looked a pretty tidy performance.
Wasn't looking forward to this one.,but some away record were building up. Fingers crossed for results the morn. COYR

Just home was a late, unexpected in for it made all the sweeter by sitting next to my St Johnstone supporting son.

Shaky first 10 minutes but after we took the lead against the run of play, our confidence just seemed to grow and grow. Second half was a pleasure to watch, utterly dominant with swift, pleasing on the eye attacks. Only surprise is that it wasn't a bigger victory.....not sure how McLennan managed to miss art 1-0, Cosgrove also blew a sitter and their keeper had a fantastic save from McGinn right at the end.

Shinnie obviously m.o.m. not only for his goals but back to his best driving the team forward. Ball was immense as well, with McLennan, Considine and Ferguson very good.....but tbh not a single failure today.

Results elsewhere went for us too....second week running that's happened. Let's hope Hamilton do us a turn tomorrow, including their plastic pitch crippling a couple of sevconians in the process.

Just back, good performance today, rode our lack a couple of times, but we could have scored more aswell.
Probably the best performance ever from our captain in front of watching Scotland boss, he was my m.o.t.m, but not far behind was the excellent Dom Ball after a shaky start. make no mistake, with Logan,McKenna & Hoban out this was a huge win.
G.M.S  anonymous again, didnt look interested tbh!
Thought Lowe was back to how we know he can play. Ref let them off with some real heavy challenges, a few of them eventually booked :'(

Was Considine a Centre Back today, alongside Devlin?
