St. Mirren Laddies v Queen's Park Men


Recommended Posts

Any Saints fans remotely interested (player's families excluded) in this? I'd have thought bringing Gus back just for this game signalled how desperate the club is for a win against one of the big Glasgow teams. You've got to start somewhere. ;)

No danger of QP being complacent here. I was hopeful after the draw but given our recent form  we'll need to be lively from the start. Team's been decent in spells but that mystery in front of goal will hopefully get solved this week. Once the seal is broken I'm pretty confident we've enough decent players to start banging them in on a regular basis. This game, and our next two, is as good a spell as we'll get to practise the shooting skills. Expect MR to keep to the same tactics and shape as this week.

Away win by a margin of one.

Pretty confident of a win now, which I certainly wasn't before last Saturday.

Got a mixed record against Colts sides in this competition - thrashed Killie at home and beat Thistle away  on penalties a couple of seasons ago but lost a dreadful match to Motherwell (at Stirling of all places ) last season 

Same starting line up again will do for me, although East will be pushing for a place after the impact he made coming on against Clyde

Pubs in Paisley? St. Mirren fan in work recommended The Bankhouse and The Bull ( that's two pubs, not the name of one)

Yip, I'll echo this. Hopefully we have someone who'll fill Gibby's boots. I was quite happy with what I saw against Clyde and previous Colts sides haven't been particularly impressive....and neither were the first team Buddies.

It would be good to get through this and scoop up another European tie. We're a bit bulkier up front now. That might help against a weans' side. Here's hoping.

Highly likely that 3 Continental teams will make it through so chances are high. Sligo's a great place for the travelling man to quench his thirst.

Indeed; I think you'll find that the travelling men are hopeful that Sligo awaits us. But let's not tempt fate! Let's concentrate on scuttling the Buddie Babes.

First up, best wishes to Mark Roberts on his confirmed role as Head Coach. It will be interesting to watch how he handles the responsibility of  being on his own again, after his stint at Ayr. He'll no doubt be a wiser man for his experiences since then, and with much support coming from our own returning legend  TQ,  and the other backroom staff, I wish him well.

This game is the proverbial banana skin. Given that we've drawn 3 cup ties this season against teams from higher leagues,  which have gone to penalties, and we've won two of them.

Let's hope if this one goes the distance that the Colts aren't as deadly from 12 yards as their 1st team.

You're gonna be disappointed.  Sorry, not sorry.

Extremely impressed with the subs. Moore looks very intelligent in his movement and link up play and East is extremely direct but can actually beat his man aswell. Would definitely start them next week

Every coach's dream; impact subs. It was a good effort all afternoon but as is often the case, nobody right in the kill zone. Until the subs. Moore in particular was spectacular. Brought McLean out his shell and suddenly we're scoring for fun. Seal's broken. Here we go!

James Grant. 18 going on 26. Summers too had a 90 minute special. And Hawke seems to have found his sweet spot also. The rest were just really good. Well done Mark!

Very poor crowd apparently?

Decent support though from Glasgow. I wasn't expecting many locals to turn out to watch their under 21s, especially given the weather and the fact St Mirren were tweeting over 2 hours before kick off that the game might be in doubt ( the pitch looked fine so fair play to the ground staff)

Very happy with our second half performance. I was wanting McLean subbed before he scored but he ended up having a stormer of a last half hour, so there is a player in there after all. Just hope we see more of it in the league matches . I thought Gerry had another great game, especially in the first half when they looked like extending their lead a couple of times. He got in the blocks and made the interceptions, plus he had to help McLaren through his debut
