  1. JR's first few months as St Mirren manager were (at best) unconvincing. IIRC our league position deteriorated considerably during his early tenure. The January window of 2016/17 allowed him to ditch deadwood and bring in players to suit his style of play. His success has been based on that restructuring. If JR was to take up the challenge at Barnsley right now he wouldn't be able to strengthen his squad this season. Relegation would be likely. Why would he trash his golden reputation at the expense of staying put with St Mirren and adding a Championship to his list of achievements. He would be mad to jump ship before the end of this season. His reputation would be greatly enhanced with something tangible on his CV. More prestigious English clubs than Barnsley would be likely to come calling in the summer.
  2. Victor-y Parade ?
  3. Frankmac Aveniue ?
  4. Room 101

    Ice hockey and basketball would be my first two choices for Room 101. Piles of shite.

    So can we fermez la porte on any more January signings ?
  7. Come on Morton

    Hmm, that's worrying because he is pure mince.
  8. Come on Morton

    On today's evidence Morton must be the best diddy team in the whole of Greenock. Congratulations to the stinky shower, credit where it is due, excellent performance.
  9. Betting Thread 2017-2018.

    Half-time Newport 1 Spurs 0. £3 to burn, stuck £1 on Spurs to win 4-1, 5-1 and 6-1.
  10. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    Let's see if Greenock Morton can make our weekend perfect.

    Death In Paradise on BBC1 right now. Mildly entertaining tosh, absolutely no brain exertion required to watch this. More enjoyable than 60 minutes in the dentist chair. Ben Miller / Kris Marshall were both excellent as the lead detective character. Ardal O'Hanlon has now taken over that role and he is utterly sh1te. Zero acting capability. One dimensional and essentially resurrecting Father Dougal located on a desert island. Can't see this show getting another series with this nugget in the role.
  12. One Club Player

    I think St Mirren was Campbell Money's only (playing) club.

    I'm hoping we don't touch the Celtic money for Morgan this season while we still have the player. We will need the cash next season to fund Morgan's replacement.
  14. Kenny McLean

    Are sell-on payments based on an agreed percentage of the full fee paid or would it be just the incremental amount received by Aberdeen beyond what was originally paid to us ?
  15. McQueens car returns . .after 50yrs. .

    I don't remember Gordon McQueen driving a Mustang to Love Street.
  16. Mark Hill Signs

    Old looking 19 year old - hopefully that is just a ropey photo. Welcome aboard Mark, good luck as a St Mirren player.

    Eric Sinclair springs to mind.

    Reilly is another example of a player whose career was on a slippery slope until he was adopted by the good shepherd Jack Ross. JR seems to have a talent for spotting potential in a faltering player and rebuilding their confidence. I see Stephen McGinn as another example of someone whose career was going nowhere but downhill until he came back to Paisley and started working with JR. Harry Davis's move to Paisley has also been symbiotic. He is a better player for his move to St Mirren and we survived in the Championship last season largely because of the impact of Davis joining us.
  19. Latest Scores

    Goal disallowed apparently, still 3-0 on reports.
  20. I reckon they would be "Happy Together". (all those under 50 totally bemused)
  21. St Mirren V ICT 6th Jan 2018

    Me too, I've no idea how I keep getting into your kitchen.
  22. What A Belter

    100% agreed, beautiful part of the world. IOBS, a word of warning about your car hire. I hope you checked over the vehicle's bodywork before you drove out of the Avis car park at Cape Town airport. We've hired from there twice before and both times they tried to steal money from our credit card account weeks after we got home for "damage" to the vehicle.
