Jack Hamilton probably should've saved all three of St Mirren's goals. He was highly rated when he was younger. Looks awful now.

Gaston really hasn’t been ‘the problem’ for years as it has usually been the dung in front of him hindering our chances of finishing as high in the league as possible. I haven’t seen any progression in his game that couldn’t be put down to ‘basic full time training and greater match experience’ though so I’m not buying the case for a positive Wylie effect either.


I'd agree with that. It could have been a number of factors. It was clear that when he came in that he had weaknesses he had to improve, especially with moving his feet, and I'm assuming being full time was a big reason why he made those improvements.

He wasn't convincing at all in his first couple of months with us. He has improved in all aspects of his game since then.

Our keepers have been the problem for many years - was always strange how Wylie was a constant over these years as his career imploded with the past back rule - maybe why Gaston was a shot stopper and not a goal keeper as Wylie could only mentor half the Goalkeepers job...


The idea that a coach's ability to coach is limited by their ability as a player is just silly.

While Gaston really lost his way for a while, he has made significant improvements to his game since joining us.

Tidser. By far our best player at the start of the season. His goals and assists have been important throughout. He made a big difference when he came back into the starting line-up for the last few games. 

 

Kiltie made an important impact as well over the last couple of months of the season, but less of an impact overall. I don't think anyone else really comes into the conversation.
