  1. There are plenty of places to see game pretty well outside the ground like that fence. Suspect they will be well protected tho. I’d say we may get 300 tickets for this. I think it’s a great story and what the cup is all about. The pitch is very poor quality (I’ve played at the park and drainage is an issue) but I recon they will put some money into sorting it before the game. If fans are travelling by train through the tram from haymarket is best bet. Or number 3 or 25 bus from outside the station on Dalry Road. There are no pubs nearby but the one across from haymarket station (Platform 5) is decent prices......by edinburgh standards!
  2. Chairman's statement

    Mixed views. See both sides of the argument but on balance I’m inclined to vote no and agree with the chairman. But I don’t support funding core first team things like new footballs either the club need to manage that directly. I think (personal view only) the best outputs from this initiative have been the projects that have improved access for disabled fans and youth projects. These are the things that often get overlooked and it’s great we can help. I do however admire the team at SMISA for standing firm and giving the option to the contributing fans to decide.
  3. Dinnae Shoot The Fecking Messenger

    I agree - not just because he is a fellow highlander - but it’s a pretty catchy tune. Seriously doubt the writer will make millions in royalties from St Mirren fans listening to this but someone has a hobby, took some serious time to write this and ‘gift it’ to the club. Not sure why merits the tone of some of these comments.
  4. Hope I get a ticket for this, apart from living a few hundred meters from the ground I think it will be a good occasion for them. I doubt they will move the fixture to another ground. Would be a nice game to have in the history books. Tynecastle unsuitable in my view. Maybe Edinburgh Utd which holds 2,500 would be an option tho. It’s closer than tyncastle and offers more space (although most is standing)
  5. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    I guess nothing can happen with out the Chairmans agreement. Could the discretionary £2 be put towards him extending his holiday by 5 weeks and in a place with no internet or phone signal?
  6. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    Starting to get a bad feeling about this...... If he wants to go then that's that and the Record seem to think he's keen (could be b*llocks I guess). He's got a good gig with us, loved by fans, backed by board, supporting him in signing targets and much to be optimistic about. Dundee are already where he wants to take us but they also increased their liabilities 200% this year and I doubt promises of big budgets and new stadiums will materialise in the short term. But Jack also knows that his career choice is pretty insecure and if he can double his wage and get a few years out of it then that's no doubt appealing. Look at the countless up and coming managers who end up on scrap heap (like Lennon) possibly unfairly! When it comes down to it who can blame him for making hay while the sun shines?
  7. Billy O'Brien

    Pretty harsh. A good talented young keeper that did very well for us and played a big part in our survival. At the very least he has done enough to deserve better than this type of comment.
  8. Stephen Mallan

    I am looking forward to the next batch of brilliant youngsters getting their chance next season and following in the footsteps of McGinn, McLean and now Mallan. Good luck to him, sure he will do well. He delivered big time for us over past 4 months and I wish him well.
  9. Hibernian v St Mirren Championship 6/5/17

    Love this club. Love this team. The great escape.
  10. Hibernian v St Mirren Championship 6/5/17

    Yeah and Hibs opened the south stand to their own fans today. Top tier as the rest of the ground has sold out. Hope we get a new allocation tomorrow and they don't use for their own fans!
  11. Skyview and Involvement with St.Mirren FC

    Nothing in this in my opinion. I know one of the US companies they have acquired and they have a small portfolio in which any football club has no place. I'd be confident this is a corporate social responsible investment to further their brand or more likely they know Gordon well and want to pop some cash into something to offset their tax and build their brand. From top to bottom I've seen nothing but improvements in how our club is run since the new board came in.
  12. Raith Rovers v St Mirren

    We've had a lot of games in a short period, bound to have a dip. Bad one to lose but no point panicking. Was always gonna be the great escape but still a good Number of games. Good support tonight again, if we can have that spirited support for the home games I think we will get back to winning ways again. #keeepthefaithbuddies
  13. St Mirren v Hibs 1st March

    What a brilliant result. Long way to go, odds still against us id imagine but this has been a great couple of weeks, results wise. Clean sheets, playing well and manager deserves huge credit. Well done to every fan tonight again, really great vocal support. Have to give Neil Lennon some credit too - Ambrose signing really helped us out [emoji12]
  14. Forgotten how good it feels to win in the league! Thought the fans were brilliant, wonder how impactful that could be if we could convert that support into our home games.
  15. Named and shamed...............

    Tony's response is a joke. Disappointed in the club statement on this. We need to come out and confirm that was the case and no longer is for all employees. His statement strikes me as if he's no clue about this stuff. He's a director and more importantly CEO. Nothing like this should be a surprise to him. Loopholes in legislation is not what we should be seeking. We're a professional club that should be fair to our staff whether there a steward, kit man or star player. Pay a living wage but if that isn't feasible pay the minimum.
