  1. Who gives a f**k what they've done THIS season, they were signed by us for last season and every one of them played their part in keeping us in the championship.

    2017

    2017 for St Mirren has been quite unbelievable. Normally over the course of a season or even calendar year us fans get a handful of wins to celebrate and if we're really lucky get a moment to be really proud of like a win against 1 of the old firm or the mob from down greenock way. To start off the year we were pretty much still f**ked. Our only hope was for the gaffer to pull something out the bag that none of us could have expected and thank God he did. At the end of January, down at Dumbarton something clicked, not necessarily with the team but between the 800 odd fans we took there and the team on the park and from there its grown. A point that day with more or less a whole new squad was a decent enough result but the weeks that followed just got better and better. Ayr away really kick started something and the other results that followed were fantastic, hibs and United at home was a massive 6 points, Morton away, Ayr at home, Raith at home then hibs away being the pick of the bunch. To carry that winning mentality through into this season has been a fantastic achievement and to get ourselves into the position we are now in from where we were is pretty remarkable tbh. Without a shadow of a doubt my favourite year ever of following the Saints. Cheers to Jack, James all the staff and players for a year never to be forgotten. Happy new year when it comes lads
  4. Scott Fraser been ruled out for 3 months after going off injured the other night, just as big a loss for United as Fyvie will be. Can only be good news for us buddies.

    Lewis Morgan

    Some apparently 'ITK' Celtic fan on twitter claiming they've agreed deals for 2 players in January worth 4m quid. 1 of which will involve a loan back for the rest of the season. John Mcginn and Lewis Morgan being the names suggested by just about everyone. ( He gave a clue, both surnames begin with M) If true, this would be some bit of business for St mirren with McGinns sell on clause. 4m does seem a bit much right enough.
  7. I just can't see the dons board going for Jack Ross. This is probably the first time in well over a decade that Aberdeen have actually had a successful manager. Brown, skovdahl, mcghee, and whoever else has managed them in the last 15 or 20 years haven't done very well and been punted after a season or 2. If Mcinnes leaves, he's leaving them in a far better state than any other time they've been looking for a new manager so the job will look a far better prospect to other managers out there just now than it was any other time they've been on the hunt in the last 20 years. I think the Calibre of candidate applying will be even greater than it has been and although jacks done a cracking job so far I don't think he comes close to some of the guys out there at the minute. With Aberdeen receiving compensation as well it allows then not to go for a cheap option or even someone already out of work, Tommy Wright is probably even a better option than jack is just now, purely based on experience of the league and the fact he's won a Scottish Cup
  8. Think Alex mcleish and maybe even Gordon Strachan will be further up Aberdeen's wishlist than Jack Ross, should mcinnes head for ibrox. I'd be very surprised if we're on the hunt for a new manager any time soon.

    Our Compere

    Could be doing with stopping his ' show your appreciation ' pish at every substitution. Apart from that he's sound
  10. Easy win for the saints and back to the top of the pile as United and dunfermline play out a score draw

    Lewis Morgan

    Aye put the feelers out the now and tell anyone who will listen that the first team to come up with, 500k and an agreement to loan him back to us for the rest of the season and he's theirs. Everyones a winner
  12. 3-1 the buds, Reilly, Morgan and Stelios with our goals
  13. Aye yer right, we should just give up the now and expect to get pumped every week
  14. Agree with most of this but think this game can still be quite important to us. Granted, the result however it goes changes nothing as far as this competition goes but a decent performance and win should instill a bit of confidence in the team after the last 2 poor results. Last thing we need is to be going into the Falkirk game with our heads down. Its also a chance to see who's actually up for it and who wants to step up after last week's shocker. We've no doubt been working on a few of things in training so it's another chance to put them to the test as well before the real stuff starts. Damp squib yes but not a totally pointless exercise. Fully expect us to put in a performance and get a decent win giving us all a wee lift before Falkirk next week.

    Darren Whyte vs Jack Ross

    There was 11 hopeless performances in that starting side yesterday and you choose to highlight the young guy who was only brought into the team as cover because of suspensions. He was far from the worst player in the side, Gavin Reilly and Ian Mcshane are experienced players and both were horrendous yesterday, I'd be alot more worried about them than a young boy who's trying to kick start a career in football.
