You can argue about the managers tactics being sub standard and all of that, but ultimately the players on the park have to have the desire to go out there and win their battles, like you said.
Callum Booth, someone deemed not good enough for Hibs, showed the type of fight required to win a game not once but twice in the space of a few seconds. He was determined that he was getting that ball and that for me was the main difference between the 2 sides.
Jason Kerr said it in his interview after the game, St Johnstone wanted it more and that for me is unforgivable.
You can show up and get beaten on the day, that happens all over football.
But we went down with an absolute whimper, absolutely no one in that side had the balls required to grab the game by the scruff of the neck. The manager canít instill fight or desire, that has to come from within.
