In relation to your post Fraser, i'd say, in the admittedly short clips i've seen of them, St. Mirren (and Kilmarnock grumble grumble) play some good football. They generally tend to play a short and dynamic passing game and tend not to resort to long ball or physicality (Jim Goodwin aside!) to play. To me, that says that with a good gameplan, well drilled side and astute signings, even with the financial restraints those clubs have; good football can be played. To boot, some ex Ayr United players on show too. Craig Samson & Gary Teale for St. Mirren. Ryan Stevenson for Hearts.
