  1. I noticed a Celtic fan mentioning the cup match at Love Street in 1980 which Celtic eventually won 3-2. What a night. Ground absolutely full to overflowing and (as I recall) a great performance by Saints and by Johnny Doyle of Celtic (Although some felt, aided by a poor off side decision). Worth a read: http://celticunderground.net/his-greatest-game-johnny-doyle-1980-st-mirren-2-3-celtic/

    What's he done to upset you. Great wee player who gives 100%

    I guess that the right to bear arms goes back to the time of the war of independence where the "freedom fighters" of their time felt they needed to be armed. This was then enshrined in the constitution. I don't like it. I don't see the sense in it in the modern era but changing it and how would one go about disarming those who already have guns? Big problem.
  4. St Mirren v Brechin Sat 24th Feb

    Whatever the odds, I don't bet with the exception of the odd Euro millions ticket where I know the odds of winning are ridiculously low. Can't blame someone for betting their own money on the chance of a 1.0 win for Saturday's opponents but I do hope the punter who places that bet loses!
  5. Goalkeeping Crisis for the Doonhamers http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-43153830 Only at Queen of the South. (A lovely club)
  6. Fair point regarding the incident you mention but what a game. The power of video and football that we can look afterwards - eve this long afterwards at decisions like this. At the time - biased perhaps as I am - I felt that there was an offside infringement. That's the magic of being at a live game. PS Is there video of Abercromby clearing the ball at Hampden in a Semi Final against Rangers (as was) where the ball was judged to have crossed the line? We were at the other end and again, perhaps showing bias, felt that the ref got it wrong.
  7. Fixtures up to and inc 10th March

    Nah You go for it.
  8. Dundee Utd v St Mirren, Friday 2nd March 2018

    Anybody know how many tickets we have sold for this? The away support at Livingston was magnificent. Hope we can replicate that (but get a different result on the park)
  9. Fixtures up to and inc 10th March

    Less of the cheek please Mr Shull. Each of us have our own individual view of things St Mirren Tough matches for each of the three teams coming up. Something has to give in the matches shown. Great battle all round. Bring it on...this is what Scottish Football is or should be about. (Shull - I know your views on how to make the top league more competitive)
  10. Points Difference For the "RUN IN "

    Just what I was thinking about you Faraway (Only joking) But I like it .... The Final Countdown! Lets hope the symetry is disturbed and that after saturday it isn't 10 with ten to go as Mr Shull posted tongue in cheek

    Not like you to be faint hearted Schull But You are right - First and foremost, we have to keep our own form going. Then Livvy can do us a favour or two by taking points off rivals on the run in.
  12. Jack Talks Tactics

    Spot on. As I recall the Celtic Invincibles suffered a similar defeat to end their long winning run of games. One win doesn't make a season, nor does one loss break it. I'm my book we made two defensive errors (this happens to the best...ask Man City and Spurs). If the other two goals scored by Livvy had been scored by Saint's players then I would have said they were very well taken by the strikers. Well done Livvy. Please repeat that form in most of your remaining games. It's the least we can ask as well as the most. COYS
  13. St Mirren v Falkirk 24/3/2018 (mibbaes)

    Isn't life at the top complicated!?
  14. Jack Talks Tactics

    This view has my support. The least any player should give is 100% Whether in training or in a match. Buy in or ship out seems fair. To do less,let's down your teammates & fans
  15. Love these initiatives.
  16. Dundee Utd v St Mirren, Friday 2nd March 2018

    Games scheduled for 27 February Saints v Falkirk rearranged to 24 March United v QOS still on 27 February. Rearranged dare for SMFC v Falkirk is now 24th March. United V SMFC still on 2 March
  17. St Mirren v Falkirk 27th February

    Scott - Agreed - I said might. Much depends on the results for United and Livingston before that date. We are presently 11 points clear. But if we go 15 points clear before the game with each of us having six 6 games left to play and a better goal difference...then game on..
  18. Dundee Utd v St Mirren, Friday 2nd March 2018

    No Tuesday 27th Game at Home v Falkirk on 27th February but United will be in action that evening V Queen of the South. I really enjoy an evening game and this one promises to be a 100% , 100 Miles Per Hour Cracker. Come on ye Saints.
  19. Dundee United here we come. Dundee United here we come. "Oh when the Saints! I love an evening game at Tannadice. Will be hell for leather I am sure.
  20. St Mirren v Falkirk 27th February

    The fixture is still showing - they have games to make up.
  21. St Mirren v Falkirk 27th February

    Jings, Crivens and Help ma boab! I feel for you East Lothian - I was looking forward to the game on Tuesday. However - It probably makes sense to play it on the saturday 24 March. Might even turn out to be a title decider - who knows!

    With you 100% Welcome Massimo
  23. St Mirren v Brechin Sat 24th Feb

    No apology for mentioning respect from me. But Look at our results against Brechin and how these were achieved. Not easy...but I hope and believe we can win.
  24. St Mirren v Brechin Sat 24th Feb

    Faraway. Supposition upon supposition. All about opinions though, I guess. Didn't play football. Played rugby. Did athletics. My approach was the same. Respect the opposition. If you don't give it, you don't get it.
