    Jack Ross Must Go.

    Time is important for any manager, especially one taking over a club that has been plummeting in recent years, changing managers every few months. Hopefully there are more sensible people on the board than on the forum...

    Challenge Cup

    Up until East Fife last weekend that was the coldest I'd ever been at a match. The final against Accies at Airdrie was brilliant though. I bet, for all the people who are moaning about this tournament and who aren't going on Sunday, saying it doesn't matter, they'll all be queuing up to go to the final if we get there. I'm looking forward to Sunday, Emma's first ever match

    I think the club should charter a flight from Glasgow airport to Prestwick then we could have a march to Ayr tartan army style.

    Was the sin bin a success

    The sin bin was a fantastic addition to this fine little forum of ours. A very welcome one that I sincerely hope will be utilised when the need most likely arises again. The following three points will illustrate my reasoning behind my assertions. 1) The sin bin not only gave me a bit of piece from StuDick but I dare hope that we may have seen the last of the pesky one. 2) Skidmark Faraway got his botty skelped and although still a bit skidmarky his behaviour seems to have improved (if only slightly) and 3) Shull's unfortunate online meltdown seems to have halted. The sin bin was a success, I shall toast the magnificence of the sin bin's impact over my next drink which I shall have now......in ten minutes I will be needing a pish!

    Buses For Ayr

    I would agree that the club should look into laying on some buses, the trains are stopping at Kilwinning and being replaced by buses to Ayr that day,it will possibly put people off going and this game is equally if not more important than the Dundee cup game,which saw the club giving financial support to the travel clubs who in turn gave discounted travel to the fans who filled the buses. I would suggest the best way to go about it would be the club asking the travel clubs to lay on an extra bus each and to charge fans the same price as the main bus, with a guarantee that if the cost of the bus is not met by the fares paid, then the club would make up the shortfall, if there is any. This would ensure the travel clubs don't lose customers to any buses run directly by the club and don't lose out financially if the buses are not filled. I have also made this suggestion to the SMiSA committee.

    Was the sin bin a success

    I'm not a regular poster but I regularly follow most of the threads.. It's been a success for me. It's cut down on what is discussion for some, banter to others, bullying to a few and mindless drivel to many. We are all Saints fans (I think), we all want the club to do well and have different views on how that's going to be achieved. Some felt that they had been blessed by such an insight to what was wrong that everyone else was either too dumb or stubborn to see it.. Anyway less threats veiled or otherwise, fewer maniacal ramblings and not so many pointless threads has made the forum a better experience.. But that's just me, we're all different, and just because I don't like some content shouldn't mean we don't allow it... So let bygones be bygones and let the prodigal children return, slaughter the fattened calfs and brace ourselves for what we are about to receive...

    Sorry for picking on you sergie lots of people have said this but whilst its true, when I started supporting ST Mirren we were in the old Second Division and that that was the bottom league. We couldn't go any further down,so Modern League one won't be the worst we've ever been so whilst it will be unpleasant to get relegated we still have a bit to go before we are Rock Bottom. Managers have to learn their trade somewhere and whilst many believe JR is out his depth in the Championship, He has had some experience in League one and by all accounts was doing well enough to attract our attention. Whilst many claim the teams performances have improved under his leadership everyone agrees his teams have not yet learned how to secure league points. We have gone through lots of players during his reign and he still has to find a winning formula. Many of his new signings are loans and probably won't be available next season. In our financial state it makes sense to keep him to the end of the season. If we stay up. Hopefully he will have learned and can take the team forward. If we go down hopefully he can call on his previous experience, gain some confidence from being back at a level he can cope with and then progress to a higher level thus rewarding our loyalty after keeping him in post. If he shows no sign of improvement in league one. Then we get shot of him but I don't think we have any option other than to trust him meantime. We can't afford to sack managers every five or six months. Give the JR a chance to learn his profession. That's my opinion

    Yeah I could do that. Anyone up for spending a few hours a week moderating the forum? I can't pay you and you'll get dogs abuse from the other members. Please let me know if you're interested.

    Just my personal opinion... would it not be more appropriate, meaningful and relevant to address this request to the club? smisa members subscriptions are ringfenced to pay off a substantial debt to the selling consortium, and to buy the majority shareholding in the club.

    Your not misunderstood, your wrong. There are 3 tiers of minimum wage depending on age. It is also law and not a so called rule. What's one way about it? By law there is a minimum per hour to be paid for an employees services. Doesnt matter wether people work for a small company or a big company they should be paid minimum wage at least. The original point I made was that there are hospitality companies paying less than minimum wage all over the place.

    I honestly don't think we are seen as the sacking club of Scottish football, I think we simply made a few really bad appointments in a row and haven't recovered from them. As a few people have said the rot didn't start with not renewing Danny's contract, it started with appointing Tommy Craig. Everything we have done since has been in an attempt to recover. Murray was a reasonably popular choice but ultimately failed and Rae was no ones choice but did well until he lost the manual on 'how to build a squad' during the summer. I don't think either would have got through the doors though if Craig hadn't relegated us. Tommy Craig was Davie Hay.the sequel.

    I think the sin bin is/was a divisive, point and stare exercise, much like kids would do in a playground surrounding one kid and goading him into doing something. If someone has broken the forum rules, then its up to mods to act. What i did notice is many others who have regularly been abusive remaining scot free, which does make it all look like one rule for some, one for me mates.

    Challenge Cup

    Quite looking forward to this game. TNS are an unknown quantity but with a strong run of form. A victory keeps our excellent cup form going and gives the club/fans something to look forward to in the near future. St Mirren 4-3 TNS.

    Challenge Cup

    Can't see there being a big crowd for this , due to the kick off time and the lack of interest in this tournament . I'm hoping we can get through , so we can have another good day out like the other two challenge cup finals .

    Season 17/18 Replica Kits

    I think, as Dave has alluded to, that Joma can do some element of besoke design for the Professional Clubs. It doesn't need to be totally out the catalogue. The designs we've had from JD have, apart from the relegation season abominations, been pretty decent IMO. The strip that poz designed that we won the cup in was brilliant. It was the quality of the kits, the shambolic release dates (ironically the only release they got bang on was the worst strip we've ever had) and the deal breaker of not being able to buy the kits in our own shop that really pissed everyone off. All TTL need to do is do a proper formal launch of the new kit, at the last home game of the previous season, make it an event, take over the Dome or whatever, get a band in, get some ex-players, get some food and drink stuff set up, something for the kids, and sell the kits there and then. They'd completely clean up and undo much of the pain of the last 3 years with JD. This ain't rocket science. We sometimes make it so hard for fans to spend money it's ridiculous!

    No matter what happens Ross has to remain manager for next season. Binning managers is not the answer. We just have to take a step back to move forward.
