  1. St Mirren v Brechin Sat 24th Feb

    Might I suggest that for games like Saturdays, the club ought to install commodes under the seats for the comfort of fans ? Like one or two other games this season (esp v Raith in the Irn Bru cup) Saints have come out with the attitude of "this will be too easy for us today" and been unable to raise their game when opponents have proved to be no pushovers. OK we held on this time, but it was misery watching the last 20 mins when no-one could have complained if Brechin had managed a draw. Nevertheless we held on and perhaps another warning - like last weeks - that the title is not sewn up yet. Fridays game will be interesting to see if we really have what it takes.

    Lol, good idea. Cannot resist them frogettes though, lol.
  3. Irish Club In Europe

    I notice its even later tonight, 11.30. I have no facilities for recording tv. I presume I am the only person in this situation. FYI not everyone can afford satellite tv.
  4. Irish Club In Europe

    Why do they put the highlights on tv so late ? As I don't prop up English football by subscribing to sky and bt, I am reliant on itv highlights but they are way past my bedtime, grrrr.
  5. St Mirren v QOS Sat 3rd Feb

    Seems ages - almost a month - since last home game. Looking forward to going tomorrow and a win would be most welcome.
  6. Scotland Football Club

    You well know that's not true. I am rarely wrong. Do you ever do anything other than try to pick holes in a "real" Saints fans posts ? Anyway, its water off a frogs back, lol.
  7. Scotland Football Club

    I think you will find that people involved in football, at whatever level, may well be affluent and influential but are often lacking in education and common sense. Not only is it incredible that Regan was chosen in the first place, given his negligible knowledge of football (and particularly Scottish football) and yet managed to survive for 8 years during which the national team has gone from really bad to even worse, but one needs only to look in-house at Saints where a procession of complete duds were appointed to a position they neither merited nor deserved. Thankfully this has changed now with JR who is the best manager in living memory. Having only scant regard for those in power at Hampden, and even less for the "national" ( that's a laugh, half aren't even Scottish at times)team, I am in agreement with others in expecting an appointment which will favour our two nearest local rivals. Perhaps a female would be the best solution, they tend to be better educated in order to be considered for such jobs.
  8. Not been around lately but when will you learn that the Frog rarely gets things wrong.
  9. St Mirren V ICT 6th Jan 2018

    I think that many would agree that , apart from in patches, Saints have not been playing great for a few months and yet we are still sitting atop the league. Every team I have seen this season has been good and there are genuinely no easy games in this division, so being top is a fine achievement so far. Its difficult to find any faults with Jack Ross as his record is great, so I am confident any new signings will improve the team. Going tomorrow, not missed a home match all season, the most for quite a few years and finally I have to say the singing section have made a big difference to the atmosphere in the ground. Mind you, until this season our home record has been pretty dreadful, so lets keep it up.
  10. How big is the Saints Support?

    Saints were lucky to escape with a point in the end. I didn't go so only have tv as evidence but we definitely need to strengthen in attack and defence. I`d say the only time we have played well recently was the second half against Dundee Utd. If we finish in the top two I would class that as a major achievement but as long as we are in the play offs that would be fine. Does anyone know if there are signing targets, name-wise ?
  11. St Mirren V Dunfermline 16 December

    I noticed on Saturday that a couple of the children nearby were starting to turn grey in the last half hour of the match. Seems quite a while since we were able to breathe freely during a game, such is the competitive nature of the championship this season. Ive said before that any of the first four places would be acceptable and we seem well on course for that. I also was informed that Morgan was to be transferred in January, although likely to remain till the end of the season. This appeared to be common knowledge , with perhaps a Celtic player coming to us. As far as I can remember, the last good player we received from them was Willie Fernie. We need another forward in my opinion, but it was heartening to see big Gary McKenzie warming up during the game. He is very much missed, as is his goal threat.
  12. Brechin v St Mirren (9th December)

    Language, Timothy !
  13. Brechin v St Mirren (9th December)

    Keep me out of that. Ive been to more games than you`ve had hot dinners. I have been nothing but supportive of the team this year and not missed a home game. Get your facts right, sonny.
  14. St Mirren V Dumbarton 02/12/2017

    Probably the worst performance and worst game I`ve seen in a long time. Couldn't see the Stelios incident properly as I was at the other side and took my eyes off the ball but even before that, I suspected the worst as Dumbarton looked to have the measure of us from the start and deserved their victory. They are, however, not a good team to watch and would drive fans away from football. They have always been a bogey team for us, its one of those football quirks. Main objective should still be a play off position, if unable to win the title. I think we need another forward though, as we are a bit lightweight in that department. Three points a must in the next game.
  15. Livingston are a decent team and will be hard for anyone to beat this season, so last night was a great 3 points. Their defenders dealt well with our front players , sometimes a bit roughly it has to be said, but we kept at it and I thought Eck had a great game, as did Morgan of course. First viewing of Davis and he is a good passer and organiser, Jack Baird will benefit from this I think. The last two games have put an end to the dodgy run recently, so if we can beat Dumbarton on Saturday ( not an easy task) we are back on track. Only down side of last night was driving home and having to avoid a yak which was being pursued by a polar bear. It was that cold !
