5-3-2 formation JUST isn't working. Darrren Lyon is an absolute passenger. Mackinnon and Greg Docherty are having to pick up his slack on numerous occasions. The gaps in the centre of our midfield are glaring to see. St Johnstone has to be the poorest side they've been in years and we have now twice failed to take a point from them.
Obvious miss-communication, Mcmann and Dougie don't work well as a left sided string. It looked to me like Scott was going for it and Dougie slid in and pulled out at the last second, leaving Scott flat footed.
Speaking of flat feet - Sarris/Mcmann passing ability is diabolical, I see youth team centre backs with better ability to pass over 20 yards, I just don't understand how you get to this level without the fundamentals nailed down.
Redmond should've had the start over Lyon, I am however leaning on the notion of Massimo taking the centre midfield stage, he brings much needed height and composure. He's ALWAYS looking to get the ball to his feet too.
The Rojano miss was a sore one, difficult one to strike but all he had to do was put it on target for a sure-fire goal.
The Lyon miss to me watching live looked more clean cut, the keeper was still 6+ yards away, he could've placed it low but went for the chip and failed.
The second half we were very poor, St Johnstone patched up the holes, leaving both Rojano and Templeton doubled up on by the defence of STJ, leaving little room for creativity. Our 'wingbacks' are barely used to stretch the play, instead sacrificing our central midfield.
Overall despite the numerous chances, a poor passing display, reckless abandon from our defensive lineup at times, this game was a poor example of football for the vast majority of it.
