    I'm a handsome bastard, but even I limit my wearing of fitba taps to very special occasions (the wife's birthday, etc.).

    East Lothian Saint reacted to St.Ricky in Why should we buy a season ticket?   
    I buy mine as an opportunity to watch the team from the club that I support in a town that provided me with a great opportunity in my career.  It also gives me an opportunity to catch up with my sons and grandson. An added benefit is bumping into  people you have known in years gone past. I can always appreciate that price can be a barrier for some but for most I think the prices offer great value. Here's to record sales and an exciting season.

    East Lothian Saint got a reaction from Hambud in The McGinn Question   
    This all starts with John McGinn. I went to see Hibs a couple of times last season seeing they still technically had a Saints Asset in their squad. 
    The thing I found perplexing was that despite Lennon being in Charge, Super John McGinn, who like his brother was better than Zidane, was still Alan Stubbs man which was indeed Something I just don't think I understood.  Surely when a manager moves the new guy should declare his allegiance to the Gaffer and the fans like wise. 
    Will Stephen and Paul still be Jack Ross's men or does Stubbs get to adopt them. 
    What is the correct football etiquette here.  
    If Stubbs is indeed Super John's man will John McGinn find his way back to the saints and likewise will Stephen hope a move to Sunderland is imminent. 
    That aside. What do we sing next season regarding Stephen and Paul 
    Are they Jack Ross's or Alan Stubbs men.  
    Hopefully they understand just how important it is to get behind our new manager and quickly identify themselves as Alan Stubbs Men. Hopefully all you folks do too.

    St Ricky has been pushing for a big increase in Season Tickets and expounding the benefits this would create for the club.  What about the benefits to the Fan? Why does anyone buy a season ticket and what are the benefits to them?   

    9 days left and in the words of the clash
    “Should I stay, or should I go????”
    Yes, it’s nearly time for the early bird season ticket renewal. It’s not really a question of whether I renew it or not. That’s a given. Jack Ross and Gavin Reilly may also be pondering the question “should I stay, or should I go” but essentially, they are just employees of the club who might work hard and do a great job but it’s still their occupation not their hobby and whether they stay or not, I shall chose to plough all my hard earned cash into something I want to do and not something I have to do.
    A Season ticket is like a passport or a permission slip. It tells the wife match days are mine and I won’t be going shopping, sight seeing or undertaking any DIY projects on said days. It reduces nagging, huffs and football widow tantrums because once she knows the season ticket is paid for there is no point in fighting it. She just changes tac and exploits the feck out of match day expenses which costs me a fortune, but I get a nag free season.
    The game is only 90 minutes in the middle of a match day which is usually full of fun, travel and adventure. I get to travel up, down and across the country, meeting lots of likeminded people and usually having a drink with them. On the trips to Paisley I meet old mates or pub buddies. On my travels I make lots of new friends, acquaintances and drinking buddies. On away days I’m reunited with die hard, like minded Buds. We party, have a sing song and win, lose or draw it’s the day out that’s important. The season ticket is not just for entry to St Mirren Park. It symbolises commitment to the idea that match days are important, and Saints take priority over more routine, mundane pastimes that can dominate home life if you let them.
    “Should I stay, or should I go” relates to whether I try to move my season ticket seat which I haven’t sat in all season or try and oust the owner of the seat in the row behind and six along who hasn’t sat in their seat all season either because I’ve been in it.
    Whatever happens I’ll be there next year whether JR is there or not. The match day out is a great experience, hail, rain or shine, win lose or draw.
    Of course, it’s been great with JR in charge and winning every week and I’d love him to stay but it’s my team and it’s only his Job. So, no matter who is in charge and who is in the squad. I’ll be there.
    ST Mirren is for life not just Fergie, Smith, Hendrie, McPherson, Lennon and Ross seasons
    Not everyone has the time or means to go to all the games BUT If you can and want to go to the games, get a season ticket.
    It stops the clash with the wife when she tries to take you shopping or create DIY tasks on a match-day.
    Of course, you may have other reasons!

    It looks like I'm in the minority - but I quite like the new league cup setup.
    I can't be bothered with friendlies and much prefer these (arguably) lower profile competitive games to get the team into gear for the season.
    I agree it's not exactly box office, but its the luck of the draw and we know we won't get any of the 'big guns' as the two closest to us are always in Europe and the rest of the most successful teams play in the other section.
    The powers that be had to try something and I think this is a decent stab at a more entertaining solution - with decent TV coverage as well.

    For me this isn't about appointing a Jack Ross doppelganger, this is about dealing with the here and now in the SPFL. somewhere JR never did anything, so there is no comparison that is relevant now. The risk is trying to get a carbon copy, pointless, no chance that's happening. Disappointingly, JR decided to go elsewhere and not test himself in the unique environment of the SPFL, who could really blame him. He's gone to a better place for his ambition and his financial well being.
    We seem too hung up on getting a JR clone. There are none, he had a uniqueness and freshness, he has gone.  Imo we now need a brand new face, new regime, new tricks and style,  who that is and how that will pan out is anyone's guess. Frankly anyone appointed is a risk, its undeniable. Get it right, JR will be a very distant memory.
    I'd like us to be gallus and different, a bit of swagger and 'up and at em' instead of turgid survival blooter baw.  All I personally can hope for is the next appointed management team will be expansive in footballing  style and exciting and energetic.  After years of mogadon laden,  drudge fest sleep inducing tortured crimes against football, I recently fell back into enjoying the St Mirren product  once more,  hopefully that can continue on and off the park. The chances of that continuing are completely up in the air for now.
    Go adventurous, not the old  tired McMafia again.

    It might all turn to shite, but it would be a hoot. The potential to tap into new and exotic markets for players would also be intriguing.

    That and dreaming to myself he'll bring half of the Real B side to us. Probably helped that I was keen on Neilson and rumours are going around he may have pulled out (although I'll only trust what the OS says on anything related to this). Kearney interests me while Darren Ferguson is someone who I think would do well (his knowledge of Eng L1/L2 could be invaluable) but he's no way near as exciting as being linked to an ex Real Madrid player
