My son and youngest daughter were at the game and both thought it was a great game.
David said Saints were playing from the back while Rovers were clever hitting on the break. He thought the two teams were well matched, which is a back handed compliment to St Mirren, he did not think they were a Championship side.
So, encouraging for Rovers. Oh and well done Queens Park knocking Morton out.
Please get me the no. for forums anonymous!
I can't see how the goal-keeper can be blamed: he was not responsible for any of the goals as far as I could see. Rovers played very well, and I was very proud of the whole team with their battling performance. If we play like that in the league, the team should start winning very quickly.
Well, I don't agree with that at all: one of the best defences in the league last year (he must have played some part in that), and he was not at fault for any of the goals on saturday. (What would I know).
Oh, and surprise, surprise, St. Mirren boss, and the winning goal-scorer, complaining about 'the pitch' and 'the surroundings'. Arrogant in the extreme from the Paisley mob.
I think the keeper is putting the defence under pressure by not leaving his line for crosses and East Fife certainly exploited that against us in the league game up there, and it won't be long before teams realise this , he is a good shot stopper no question ,but seems to lack confidence coming of his line and with the new goalkeeping coach in place I thought he would certainly be improving Ross but so far i don't see this,he is still young and can only improve but we really need some experience to help his development, as for St Mirren's moaning about the park etc no real surprise from manager or player ,no class from either maybe that's why they are at St Mirren and not a top team .
