Really like the concept of the group stages. It’s far better for the paying fan than playing monotonous mind numbing friendlies. It also generates a wee bit excitement having to look out for other results
Even better when Hearts have to compete in a penalty shootout when they know they are out and have to go through the motions
Bloody distracting. Way too many all over the place. I've seen more on my screen tonight than in 2 weeks on the Costa del Sol. There were more parakeets than seagulls. Very odd, but a damn sight less annoying
Already look like a stubbs team, they will be a good addition.
I agree looking at how they've played. I had thought with them losing their best players Stubbs might struggle with St Mirren. Watching them here they'll be a breath of fresh air. Young Cammy MacPherson in centre mid for St Mirren has been the stand out for me. Reminds me a bit of Alan Campbell at Motherwell.
I think St Mirren will do really well this year. Comfortably mid table and will have a few wins against those above them. They came up from the Championship with more points than we did and their excellent run goes beyond last season to the second half of the one previous.
Stubbs has acknowledged that; said in interview after the game that he’s looking to bring a couple of front men in and hopefully at least one of those being what he referred to a ‘marquee signing’. Be interesting to keep a wee eye on their transfer movement.
A few shocks today, Montrose winning at Falkirk, Blue Brazil at Raith, and Arbroath getting a bonus point over Dundee United
Annan also beat Hamilton 1-0. So some of the “bigger” name teams, at this stage, including Killie, got a bit to do to qualify
The lad they signed from Middlesbrough on loan looked terrific last night. Hayden Coulson.
Personally think if they bring in two good strikers, then top six looks reachable which will be a big achievement for them.
Yip! Well spotted mentioned him in another thread looks a real prospect would be the ideal replacement for Lewis just how difficult Middlesbrough would be to deal with we could maybe throw in SJM to stop the smellies stealing him cash back of course.
