It’s been so long since we lost a goal it feels like there should be an inquest today. A couple of mistakes in a wide position, followed by two deflections, which confused Craig Gordon, and that’s all it took. I’m OK with this. We’ll make mistakes and lose goals, this is one of the better ways of doing so.
Of slightly more concern was how St Johnstone match us for possession and chances created or long period during the game, belying their bottom half of the table position, some 7 points shy of Hamilton. Ronny will be keen to turnaround this specific ill for next week’s game against Accies, but the plan for Thursday will be altogether different.
Had a great time on Friday at the Irvine CSC, a very impressive club in the Ayrshire town. Get along and support it if you are in the area, they are doing a lot of good work. There’s no better way to prepare for a game against Inter Milan than to listen to Stevie Chalmers and Bobby Lennox telling you how it’s done, as they did at Irvine.
Thanks in particular to the man who put a bunch of tenners in my hand for Mary’s Meals. What a club!
Big week ahead……
