    The Upbeat St Mirren Thread

    Difficult to move the club forward with both feet on the ground but I kinda get what you're saying.

    Stubbs Already Doomed

    The majority of the negativity I've read has come (as usual) mainly from the BAWA creche of attention seekers. The same level of negativity would have appeared regardless of which candidate was chosen by GLS. Do you really think these Look At Me posters are representative of the overall St Mirren core support ? I would doubt it.

    Stubbzo's Surprise?

    League Opener

    Wasn't that our opening SPL fixture after our millennium season promotion ? We lost that day and set the tone for the rest of that season.

    Women's Football

    A wee bit harsh on Erin Cuthbert. Strong, skilful and committed. A little bit more composure would help right enough.

    Jack's Return!

    A third tier diddy club that will probably provide more than half the attendance. Thank you, third tier diddy club !

    Alan Stubbs Must Go

    I can't understand why there have been so many (usually sensible) regular posters on B&WA offering damning, negative opinions about the Stubbs' appointment since the minute it was confirmed. His managerial record has been a mix of good and bad but isn't that the norm ? How many high profile managers have gone through their entire career without a single setback ? Pep Guardiola maybe, but he didn't apply for our vacancy as far as I'm aware. Even Fergie struggled for a few seasons at Man Utd. Before making a judgment on Stubbs appointment I think it is only fair to see the standard of player he offers contracts to. And the style of play he wants St Mirren to play. And how successful the team are on the park. And where we find ourselves in the league. Just my opinion of course.

    Stubbs Confirmed

    My thoughts are similar Slarti. Our target should be no worse than eighth since I regard Hamilton, Livingston, Dundee and St Johnstone as frail and vulnerable this season. However we absolutely need to hit the ground running and harvest a shitload of points before the heavy going / harsh winter arrives. We also need to regard fixtures against the likes of Motherwell and Kilmarnock as having potential for points. The other 5 monsters (Glasgow x 2 / Edinburgh x 2 / Aberdeen) are unlikely to reap too many points for us so AS should concentrate on maximising points where they are reasonably achievable.

    Sir Stubbsy's Signings

    FFS shull !! Clearly remit numero uno to AS from GLS/TF is to bring on youngsters from our academy. Why the flying funk would the new manager want to sign an expensive has been ? Time for you to engage your brain before starting dead-end threads like this one !!

    What is the target?

    I agree with this. It is a realistic ambition that we should aim to finish above Livingston, Hamilton, Dundee and St Johnstone.

    Has Stubbs appointment been confirmed by an official source yet or is it all still press speculation ? If Stubbs is to be JR's chosen successor I will be highly optimistic for next season. He did well at Hibs but jumping ship to already-sinking Rotherham was a crazy decision by Stubbs. I think it would be unreasonable for him to be singled out as the principal cause of their subsequent relegation. He is an ambitious manager who should now be refreshed since the Rotherham nightmare and will hopefully be ready for a new challenge.

    It looks like it will be one of Stubbs/Caldwell/McIntyre/Kearney for the job using GLS criteria (knowledge of Scottish football) McIntyre probably shades it. I walked past Jack Ross chatting on his phone in Gordon Street Glasgow this lunchtime. Is there any chance he doesn't fancy Sunderland after all and he's back up here for an interview with our Tony ?

    Neilson is playing the media game. Once he realised that he had zero chance of being offered the St Mirren job, which I believe he REALLY wanted, it was obviously better for his personal image and self-esteem to make it very public that he was never interested in working for such a pissy wee club as ours anyway. F off imposter.

    I'm delighted that Neilson is now out of the equation. I also trust GLS and TF to know the right calibre of manager to appoint. And I don't believe that a cock blister like Neilson was ever on their radar.

    Neale Cooper Has Passed Away

    I used to spend time drinking with Neale in the Grist Boll in Bridge of Weir when he was living in the area while playing at Ibrox. He was a genuinely funny bloke with a wild sense of humour. Sad news.

    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    Superb gameplay by Gordon Scott in getting Ross / Fowler signed up on longer term contracts last year. The lovely compensation lolly from Sunderland will help to build us an even stronger squad for the really big season ahead. Picking the correct candidate for the new vacancy is critical. Hopefully the best candidate won't cost us any compensation money. Neilson ? - NO !! Hopkin ? - NO !! Jim MacIntyre ? - Hmm, maybe ? Looking forward to seeing some interesting, surprising names being touted. For the first time in years the managerial vacancy at St Mirren will be regarded as a plum job.

    Not Neilson please. One of the major reasons for our success under JR was his man-management skills. He was able to boss the place while still being highly popular the players. He had everyone in the squad right behind him and committed to giving 100% for him. Neilson is arrogant, uppity, aloof and up his own arse. He's a knob cheese who would never be capable of achieving the same level of commitment or unity from his players. I can't deny Hopkin's success at Livingston and I would love St Mirren to have as many players of such physical stature in the squad, but the style of play he had them playing just wasn't what I want to see from St Mirren. Passing football please. Not Neilson under any circumstances. Hopkin meh.

  20. I'd rather live in Sunderland than in Cumbernauld, Paul.
  21. And if any of these 'sausage-monkeys' look in at this site and read your post what would they conclude about St Mirren fans ? Perhaps that we are all wallopers like you ?

    Disappointed in it all

    Surely the worst offender in this saga has been the Ipswich Town chairman. He has interviewed JR (twice perhaps ?) but then left him dangling while Shrewsbury Town's manager is still involved in the promotion play-offs. That bloody time-wasting window shopper has unsettled everyone involved with our club.

    I think I'll delay renewing my ST until I know for sure that Neilson isn't the appointment. R sole.

    No More Money For Ross

    Whatever happened to the old entertaining shull ? Funny and light-hearted input, enjoyable content. What now ? Antagonistic and argumentative, only wanting to create annoyance. Come on mate, lighten up. Take a chill pill and stay out of sin bin jail.
  25. Do you know this for sure ? Isn't it possible that JR hasn't accepted it yet until all details are agreed ? Just asking.
