    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.

    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.

    I think he was often played out of position and had competition for the position that suited him best. I agree I liked him, but would also agree he could be frustrating.

    And yet another sensible Saints related debate reduces to tittltattle / banter between a few! Sort it out guys - keep the forum decent. Plenty of other mediums for chit-chat! (Facebook groups etc!)

    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.

    Family stand. Nae swearing. West stand. Anything goes - within reason. The old North Bank in LS was a far more sweary experience than the West Stand has ever been. Fitba needs to stop trying tae be PC. Ruining the game.

    You are genuine comedy gold. A bit of a pompous, self aggrandising walloper but comedic value all the same and the real beauty of it is I actually believe its unconscious. You really don't know how much you amuse people. It's obviously a gift. Proof positive that you can take the boy out of the council estate but you can't take th.......oh wait a minute!

    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. Nae todder'a'baw.

    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.

    After selling McLean it's hard to see where our next win is going to come from, he's the reason we aren't rooted to the bottom of the table. Hasselbaink will have a field day against our defence.
