Saw a worse challenge than Halkett's not even given a card, and a much more cynical one too, Halkett went for the ball but fouled their player, Lithgow was close enough to put doubt on the ref's mind as to whether it was last man or not but Collum doesn't need an excuse to get his red card out. Imo it was a yellow but what can you do, that's twice we've played the bottom 2 team's and had a sending off affect the result, the Dundee game was far worse with the penalty incident also screwing us. Oh and don't even get me started on the Motherwell away game when Lamie's goal was chopped off for their keeper pushing Menga into one of their defenders. I'm just glad these clowns in black aren't costing us our place in the top flight, but they've cost us quite a bit of money in placings.
Anyway, that aside Holt and Martindale still got it all wrong with their tactics and subs, worse still I don't think they realise they got it wrong going by Holt's post match comments. It wasn't Celtic we were playing, it was the team down the bottom fighting for their survival and we sat off them allowing them to casually bring the ball up the pitch for three quarters of the game.
Same at Corners, we didn't have a man on the halfway line, which would've taken 2 of their players up the pitch too, leaving us with the 9 Livi players (incl Kelly) v 8 St Mirren player in our box, and more importantly giving us an out ball.
One more thing bugged me, mentioned it in my last post, but Dolly should've been on a bit sooner and Hardie should've stayed on to partner him up front, Dolly is a wrecking ball that causes havoc, Hardie is the player you want running in on goal with a clear shot at beating the keeper, I've every confidence we'd have outscored them with those two playing up front.
And breath...……………….feeling much better now.
