    A timely reminder

    I started this website 15 years ago to give Saints fans a platform for discussing the club and the team with each other. We won't always agree on everything, otherwise there would be no point in having the forum at all. The only thing we all have in common should be a desire for the very best for the club. We want the team to succeed on the park and the club to thrive off the park. That should be a given. It's important to me that when we disagree we do so constructively and with respect for each others views. It's also important to me that the forum is not used as a vehicle to continually attack the club. The club make mistakes and should be called out on it when they do, but the players, the staff and everyone else associated with the club shouldn't be continually attacked by their own. It's not what the forum was created for. The stuff posted in the last 48 hours on a couple of threads, which have now been hidden, has been miles away from the sort of stuff I expect to read on here, and yes I'm including myself in that. It's been poor. Let's draw a line under it and move on and try harder to be civil to one another, using the ignore function if necessary to block out those users you don't wish to engage with.

    Misery Guts V Happy Clappers

    Although it goes against most other aspects of my nature, when it comes to St Mirren, I'm a pretty dedicated happy clapper. I don't have the power to influence anything that happens at the club, but I feel the team would benefit more from my support and blind faith than it would from moaning and berating players. Obviously, things happen that I'm not pleased with; players come in who I'm no sure about, guys leave who I'd want to keep, we lose to teams we should beat, we concede soft goals, but it's all part of being a football fan, if the game ever made me miserable for more than half an hour post-match, I'd stop going. You probably get more lows than highs as a buddie, but that just makes the good times all the more special. The Morton game will be forgotten in a matter of days, but the Millennium Champions, the Challenge Cup Final against Accies, winning the League under Gus, 3-2 at Fir Park, 2-0 away to Falkirk, 2-1 against Rangers, 4-0 vs Celtic, Mallan's goal against Raith, Loy's goal at Easter Road...They'll all live with me forever. Happy Clapper for life!

    ANY chance of a wee bit of respect for Kilby now please? As my home town team I have seen them play and know what they are capable of. They were never going to ship 5 or 10 goalsto us but that oponion based on having seen both teams play was apparantly me being negative. I would gladly have taken a scrappy 2-1 win with no injuries. Indeed, I do so. Worst result in our history? An embarrassment? That kind of talk belongs at Ibroke and Darkhead! Show some respect with a wee splash of realism please .

    Morton v Saints 12 August

    Some Saints fans are sounding like the Falkirk fans who thought they only had to turn up last week to win. Let hope the Saints players don't copy the Falkirk players reaction to it since I don't see this game being easy for us.

    Get a grip. Trying to twist every topic to somehow be about you is the kind of desperate, needy antics that you'd expect from an emotionally stunted 12 year old. You're embarrassing yourself, now. My advice would be to take a wee break from posting, for your benefit and that of everyone else. Back on topic, this is depressing to hear. About 25 years ago I similarly challenged an arsehole who shouted racist abuse at a player during an Airdrie match. I was also surprised by the lack of support I received from others. It's a very sad state of affairs that we don't seem to have moved on a great deal. I would always call someone out, though. Failing to do so is as good as condoning it.

    It was just one of those nights.We could have scored 10 on another night.Their keeper had the game of his life including a couple of saves he knew nothing about.EK left the field to the sporting applause of the Saints Fans.

    I think you did the right thing, but not surprised you didn't get an apology. These knuckledraggers don't even know what they're doing is wrong. Hard to believe in 2017 there are still people who think like that. I didn't hear it myself, but well done to you for trying to sort it. I'd like to think I'd have done the same thing, or backed you up. This sort of thing is embarrassing to the club and there is no place whatsoever for it.

    12 o'clock ferry first beer for the crossing , Wemyss Bay train station bar 20min before train to Port Glasgow with another couple of beers. Taxi along to stadium to get in early for sure there will be problems near kick off time so dont want to get cought up in that. Have a gut feeling we will see quite a few goals from Saints for a happy journey home to Rothesay for the Beer and Rum festival with Caribean food Band and Dj's. Just recovered from Bute Fest as well. Next weekend is Highland games another mental weekend with pipers from all over descending on the island.

    If he can score a penalty then clearly he's a worthwhile addition to the squad. Think we last scored one in 1952.

    When trying to further a warped agenda you should exaggerate things as much as possible, so you should really have said "this millennium" and not "this century". I'm disappointed in your shoddy work here Mr Cat, shoddy work indeed.

    I'd say the 3rd goal (trapping the long ball coming over his head) and the final goal (cute header) suggest he's still got a bit of class about him at 33. Also, all sorts of goals: both feet, headers, a penalty, a free kick.........

    Played with Jack at Falkirk. Apart from the time in India, Duffy's career is not dissimilar to Stephen Dobbie's: earned a move down south, actually managed to carve out a big chunk of his career in England then returned to Scotland as a veteran. The pair of them have got an identical goals per game ratio in the UK: Dobbie in Scotland: 79 in 179 (0.44); Duffy in Scotland: 38 in 73 (0.52) Dobbie in England: 35 in 187 (0.19); Duffy in England: 49 in 211 (0.23) Dobbie overall: 114 in 366 (0.31); Duffy overall: 87 in 284 (0.31) Dobbie came back at the age of 33 and scored 19 goals last season, Duffy's coming back now at the age of 33...........

    LPM is right we need the team that played so well in the second half against Falkirk I apologise for my comments that got a bit fraught yesterday , and if anyone doubts me I had a visit from my mental health nurse,yeah no kidding, she suggested I sit in the background and not get so stressed as it didn't help my mental state. Sorry Shull ,I didn't meant it and said some things I regretted immediately. I have had Mental health problems for 20years and my physical Health ,now I will sleep tonight COYS

    Not sure I agree with that assessment. We could and probably should have won that game by five or six goals. Their keeper had an unbelievable game and they also had another four (at least) off the line and that s before we count the last ditch blocks and crosses fired across the goalmouth. I've seen us play shit and get turfed out of cups by lower league opposition and have none of that. It's the cup. We're through to the next round. EK take the plaudits for a backs to the wall performance where they punched well above their weight. I seem to remember the champions struggling to knock a few past them too.

    When we signed Stelios it hardly even registered a ripple of electric current through my napper. I think I thought to myself 'Oh great, we've signed some Cypriot diddy I've never heard of that will be here as long as Viktor Genev was...' Now I have Stelios posters on my bedroom wall and Mrs Poz is worried about my man-crush and new found desire for kebabs. Just saying... give big Duffy a chance.

    who is Kane that QOS have signed? ....seems to me Duffy is exactly the kind of player we need and will suit St Mirren down to the ground. I cant believe negativity towards the signing. Things are looking good for the season ahead.....of course all this optimism is just softening us up fr Morgan being sold on the 31st August ....hope I am wrong. If not, surely we can say to any buying club that we dont to sell and it will take £500k+ before we would even consider it.

    How can you say we've not got a shining light this season, then when offered possibles, say it's impossible to judge after one game?! Surely that goes both ways. Morgan was player of the year last year, so seems a likely candidate.

    I think McGinn is our digger in midfield and unlike Goody he is really subtle about it. McGinn is winning the ball in midfield in ways that I have not witnessed for some time as he is always putting a foot in or blocking with his body or a wee push on the ref's blind side. McGinn for me is the essential cog in the machine. The problem is he needs a Magennis or a Mallan to push forward as McShane doesn't. Until Magennis is fit I would try someone else next to McGinn - start with Kirkpatrick. I know he was truly awful at Firhill but his record of goals from midfield from last season suggests he has a lot more to offer.

    I think some fans need to get a grip and stop judging the manager/team/players on a game by game basis. That is just counter productive. December and end of Season is when a manager's record can be scrutinised IMO. It's Football FFS, you win some you lose some.

    33 shots on goal with 21 on target. EK had 2 shots with 1 on target and we only win 2-1 with an injury time clincher. Funny old game.

    The original poster may have worded his post in an unfortunate manner, so unfortunate that many of you are rounding on him/her enthusiastically. Ironically this is serving to reinforce the very point I believe that the original poster was trying to make. Many of you lot just revel in a moan. If you read the first page of this very thread you may notice, like I did, that just one poster has made several posts ruining any opportunity for constructive discussion. ETA: I have just counted, one poster has made TWELVE posts on the first page of this thread.

    Mental Health is a dreadful affliction so there is no need to ruin ur thread by stating that out of context...................... If this is a serious thread, you must have been living in La la land for the last 4 years. St Mirren support . as proven, rise when it matters. As in we support the team on ur feet where possible. 1900 against Ton, and of course great support throughout the darkness before the light of last season...... Beginning to see where Shull is coming from, Fans have a voice, they have a right to be critical. Jack was critical of our defence Sat, he was annoyed that players had not listened. So fans who pay the managers wages have every right to voice opinion. We cant always be constructive, your thread proves that............. Its Morton mate, and although 1900 fans turned up, up 9 players didn't......

    The moron being caught by the police would have been fair, but I also think it's important that these people know that it's not just the authorities trying to shut them up, they need to know that other fans are disgusted by their behavior and won't tolerate it.

    Naan o that please! Tikka break! The best thing about the signing is Jack Ross clearly showing intent to attack attack attack. We will lose goals. We will put pressure on the defence. There might be calamities along the way. But ffs buckle in... This season is going to be one helluva ride and is so full of promise.

    I am an optimistic fan. I get as pissed off as anyone after a defeat, but I try to keep my frustrations to myself rather than infest the forum with them. I tend not to post for a day or two after a bad defeat, to allow myself time to think more rationally about things - it's easy to say or post things in the heat of the moment that make you feel silly later. Better to hang fire, or you might find yourself trying desperately to back up the stupid opinion you posted in the immediate aftermath of the offending match...which with careful thought you've realised is not as valid as you first thought...

    I didn't think we'd win the league after the Falkirk result and I don't think today's gubbing means we're a shite team. We should be able to finish top 4 with our squad but they need to apply themselves every game. We'll be strong at home but I think away games are going to be a challenge if we can't start to defend properly. Thankfully, Eckersley and Davis will make a difference.

    Here is the thing. If he has been on trial with us for several weeks (which he has) and Jack Ross has had enough of a look at him in that time to make a decision based on merit, then why would we question the wisdom given Jack's very good record so far in signings? If he's been signed then clearly he is up to the standard that the rest of our lads train at. If Jack Ross had two weeks to assess and thought he'd be carrying dead weight in Duffy then there is no way he'd have brought him in. Jack and indeed James Fowler are not the sentimental type as we saw when they quickly moved Scott Gallacher and Kyle Hutton on after they'd won POTY the previous season under both men with Alloa and QOS.
