  1. Brechin v St. Mirren 7/4/18

    I spoke to Brechin’s commercial director earlier this evening - up to 350 pay at gate available so you’ll be fine. That could be more if they need it. From there perspective this is a real end of season bonus and there is scope for more if needed because as you know from earlier this season there is no separation of fans.
  2. Superb result. First half we did struggle a bit but the defence and Big Sammy were top notch all night. I just never thought Utd would get by them. Morgan and McGinn class as usual. Long way to go but we look like a serious contender on tonight’s performance. Whatever happens after the last few years simply winning regularly is a delight
  3. Brechin v St Mirren (9th December)

    So far so good. This just posted http://www.brechincity.com/bcfc/servlet/BCFCFrontControllerServlet?action=News&page_id=1948&category=2
  4. Brechin v St Mirren (9th December)

    Time to bounce back. Saw the highlights of the Utd game and they looked decent at times, bit unlucky. One of the few grounds I’ve not been to so looking forward to the day out.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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)
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hibernian v St Mirren Championship 6/5/17

    Love this club. Love this team. The great escape.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
