This game may well hinge on who we have fit.  We desperately need width of some sort, even getting Jack back to fill in at RB.  Midfield needs a shake up (well Hughes dropped) and we can't start with Fallon and Vernon upfront.......

So expect 4 centre halfs, four central midfielders and Fallon and Vernon up top.

They have a good recent record up here but on current form have been shipping goals, whether our ineffectual attack can take advantage of this time will tell.

Anyhoo the usual stats run down:




10 Year Record vs St Johnstone at Pittodrie Stadium


Poor record but not many games. Saints are undefeated in the last four at Pittodrie with a draw and three wins, which is even more impressive given they have only won a total of 11 games at Pittodrie.

Brown on RedWeb saying Pawlett and Rae back in training. Might be ready for Sunday. Jack back into the squad too.


Osbourne, Clark, Milsom, Folly and Anderson the players he mentioned as injured.


Europe is Browns target for the season.

Well with the huns potentially missing out on their licence I should bloody well hope so.  5th could do it, but I'd prefer a cup win (obviously), however Europe after the last few years and the start we had would be amazing  :thumbsup:

Disgraceful performance, thoroughly unprofessional and there was nothing positive at all to be taken from it, zero. A total shambles going forward and the fact that St Johnstone looked equally shite says a lot. Basic football skills ie passing and keeping simple unpressured possession seemed beyond us, primarily Fyvie (aye, the premiership awaits you son eh?).


Mackie should be finished now, the debate is over.


Brown, please, in the name of all that's fucking holy, you best have a couple of wingers/wingbacks ready to come in next season, if not, fuck right off.

Couldn't get to the game today but watched it in the pub and have to admit it was shocking to see the quality of our passing and I was glad I hadn't wasted petrol money driving to watch what I have to describe as a typical end of season shocker ,,,, but hey, it's not end of season yet as there is so much to play for ,,,, you'd have thought  :hammer: !!!!!


Also couldn't believe we had 2 left footers in the middle at the back and Brown played McArdle at Left back as he is a beter in the middle, but thought he defended really well which probably says more about St Johnstone than anything else. FFS that was a stinker of a game that absoutely nothing positive can be taken from  :hammer:


Oh , ps Rae looked so slow I'm sure I've seen custard turn quicker :(
