    I would tend to think the business hasn't functioned normally , since it was formed . Any other "business" would have crashed and burned , by now . It is actually disgusting that the "company/Business/operation" has been allowed to continue to operate in the Scottish League considering that the rules were bent to allow it into the league in the first place . If they were any other club (with the possible exception of their nemesis) I believe that they would have been kicked out by now or never allowed in so easily in the first instance. .

    I guess if your attitude towards the Sevco story is 'don't give a fcuk', then the best advice I could give is 'don't post in or look at this thread'. I don't give a fcuk about cricket, so I don't bother looking at the thread someone started about it.

    Well said and welcome. Facilities for wheelchair users at Love Street looked perfect at the rear of the Family Stand. Should've been replicated at Greenhill Road.

    Aye. That seems right, plus Ashley will be happy to shuffle off the day to day running of the thing to Real Ranjurs Men, who will get the Berrz aw enthusiastic and buying true blue kit(!) and keep drip-feeding them at mid-table (even in the Championship) mediocrity. Widnae surprise me if even King was an Ashley puppet.... And when he first started wasn't he saying he'd personally put in way north of that £20m?Did someone mention "glib and shameless liar"?

    That reminds me, a few years back I wandered into a cake shop in Kilncadzow. A rare cake shop, rare indeed. The man on duty in said cake shop said "today only all cakes are £1." I said "smashing" (although in 1986 £1 was not cheap for a cake) and proceeded to have a look. I made my choice "shopkeep, shopkeep, I will have that one" The shopkeep placed the cake into a white paper bag and said "that will be £2 please sir". Somewhat bemused I made the obvious statement "I thought all cakes were £1 today" The shopkeep replied "ah but that's madeira cake!!!!"

    St Mirren supporters with half a brain should.If there's a remote chance of Saints being in play-offs and being up against a team that has been kept alive artificially even though it has been massively overspending its budget since it was set up, then your half brain should be twitching. Unless, of course, the half brain had no interest in the fate of other big spenders such as Dundee, Hearts, Livi, Gretna, Motherwell etc? And you are happy that Buddies are mugs and go blindly and deferentially about their financially cautious business against such "richer" clubs?

    That could be part of it but it could also be that when there is one main creditor (as in the Bank of Scotland when Dave Murray was the owner) who is concerned about the businesses ability to pay that creditor back (as in the Bank of Scotland when Dave Murray was the owner) then they put someone on the board to look after their interests (as in - you've guessed it) instead of putting the business into administration. Ashley could simply be concerned about getting his loans back and as part of those loan deals state he will be able to nominate two directors, if Ashley's men aren't there then he simply demands immediate repayment as RIFC would have broken the terms of the loans.

    Lost in asia. Stadium changes is it, remember why we had to leave our beloved Love Street? Debt and danger , the danger came from a long list of prescriptions devised by the RDC to ruin what was left of a great old club. As for filling in the corners or a Tynecastle clone? Behave yourselves a wee crowd in a wee stadium is far better than the likes of Rugby park or Fir park with a quarter full and an atmosphere like a burial at woodside cemetery! Our old home was built for 60,000 ,aye it wiz, and the closest we came was 47,000... well if you don't count the mid week league cup game against the ***** in the early eighties..so my point is even if we end up playing at the racecourse and changing at the kibble it's still ,"Che' sera sera" Mon a Mirren

    So money raised through tax should be spent where the tax is raised, then? Interesting, wonder if we should get the nationalist parties onto this innovative thinking.

    With the nomad withdrawing, King now has nowhere to raise money by selling shares, after his"landslide" EGM coup. He has always SAID he had a nomad he wished to replace WH Ireland with... But never named one. If he was serious, now would surely be a good time? This, of course, is if his cunning plan is running smoothly. The nomad ba on the slates, mean the shares are suspended, and... And.... .....he has now said he would step aside and let P Murray be Chair! In the interests of transparency and dignity, he thinks time should be allowed to pass so that his utter suitability for the job is shown to be unchallengeable. I'm guessing he thinks it isn't, right now. Or has just suddenly understood (or been advised, belatedly) what many others have been pointing out! This surprising delay by the man who would be King, just by chance now means he can view how things go before he ploughs his untold millions into the project. I'm sure he'll find that frustrating.

    I don't really remember Imrie getting more abuse than anyone else when he was with us. Certainly not at least until he scored his first league goal for us, nearly a year after signing, and proceeded to tell the celebrating St. Mirren fans to be quiet with a "Shhh!" gesture. The main problem with him at St. Mirren was that when he got a chance in the first team, he was usually rubbish.

    Why does that confuse you? The last time I looked, the EU weren't forcing the bedroom tax on us, keeping all our oil money, forcing us to host nuclear weapons, paying us pocket money or telling us how many immigrants we were allowed to have.

    Brand new bus and it broke down around 40 miles outside Sheffield. Not the best preparation. Lost 0-2, however, that was to be expected and anything else would have been a bonus. Still on track

    No the word that best described what I was trying to articulate was "walloper" and I think I actually nailed it. ETA Just in case you're interested........ un·con·scious (ŭn-kŏn′shəs) adj. 1. Lacking awareness and the capacity for sensory perception; not conscious. 2. Temporarily lacking consciousness. 3. Occurring in the absence of conscious awareness or thought: unconscious resentment; unconscious fears. 4. Without conscious control; involuntary or unintended: an unconscious mannerism. Pick any one of 1, 2 or 3.

    I don't see a lot of Oaky's stuff because he's predictably boring but I was stuck on a train for a long time today and as I was viewing the forum on my phone I can't help seeing his posts. I can understand why he'd rather debate with a hamster. Hamsters swallow their own shite so Oaky can identify with that. I hear the hamster nominated was straight down to Paddy Power's and even though he was 15/1 on he stuck a grand on himself. He saw Oaky's massive climb down and how he tried to imply he didn't really mean it and he knows he's on a sure-fire cert. C'mon the hamster! PS I don't think Oaky will turn up.

    Ok, I'll rephrase it as "more attractive than buying a debt ridden club", who you immediately have to bail out. Buying St Mirren would be a case of getting straight down to business on an even keel.

    Ok obviously the house analogy doesn't tie in 100% because a football club isn't a house, that's why it's an analogyMy point is, if after 5 years something is still for sale there's a chance it's overpriced.

    In the early 80s we had a pre-season trip to Brazil, did we not!? Unthinkable nowadays! The statisticians will I'm sure come on with the details, but I'm sure we played Santos and a couple of other teams. And if you really want the strangest of friendlies, surely being asked to play Notts County to open Barcelona's new stadium in the 1920s is pretty surreal when you consider the relative standings of the 3 clubs now. (note - this wasn't the Nou Camp, it was their previous stadium) And as has been mentioned in the past, we reckon we were the first ever British team to win a trophy in Europe by beating County :-)

    He looked good on Saturday. He looked good the few times I saw him on the pitch for Saints. I was disappointed it never seemed to gel. A good, competitive player. I was glad he had some success with Accies. But not on Saturday.

    All the more reason to get The Club That Thinks It's Another Club into the top flight to provide some competition for The Club That Wishes That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Actually Was The Club That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Thinks It Is. That'll sort all the problems because we all know that The Club That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Thinks It Is and The Club That Wishes That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Actually Was The Club That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Thinks It Is were both getting to the latter stages of European competitions that neither of them have ever won, because the European competitions that The Club That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Thinks It Is and The Club That Wishes That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Actually Was The Club That The Club That Thinks It's Another Club Thinks It Is won are now as defunct as the Barcelona Cup, every year when they were both in the top flight.

    I have read the stuff on the forum for years and never previously posted on any topic but I feel really strongly about this so here goes : "If I could change one thing about our new stadium it would be the facilities for wheelchair users and others with limited mobility who sit in the front of the stand and take an absolute soaking on any wet day. This is a disgrace and surely more important than video screens and other non-essentials. On the next wet day just take a minute and look at the folk in front row sitting in capes and all other kinds of wet-weather gear getting drenched. I admire their dedication to watching their team and do not feel that they are being treated with respect or consideration" I would end my wee rant by inviting one of the directors to come and try it on the next day that it is pouring with rain. If it is wet this Saturday against Accies this would be a nice gesture and an indication that the support of some really loyal fans is not just taken for granted. COYS

    Re: atmosphere. unless the club are prepared to really promote certain sections of the ground and initiatives to let like-minded people congregate together, it's going to take a good few years and new generation of fans before a go-to section is established. love st evolved over decades to the stadium and layout it was. As you grew up following st.mirren, everyone migrated from various parts of the ground; you'd start watching with parents/grandparents in the main stand/enclosure/terracing, then shift together with your mates, before inevitably at some stage ending up in the north bank for a sing song. Sadly, all those established areas and the folk in them were dispersed throughout the new ground on moving. Whatever your reasons, most folk chose a new seat in a specific area and have probably stuck with it. Failing an intervention, then unfortunately I reckon it will take the next generation of supporters to naturally establish an area for themselves (attracting a next generation of fans is a very important issue in itself). Alternatively, there are few other sure fire ways of creating an atmosphere. the team could try playing some consistent attacking fitba. Or give everyone a few pre-match beers. 100% of studies prove this to be true. For all the talk of apex roofs and enclosed corners, you first need to create an atmosphere before you can retain it. The reason why away games tend to have a better atmosphere amongst st.mirren fans is because all the fans including everyone willing and wanting to sing are forced together in the same small area of the ground...and a few beers are more likely to have been consumed.
