  1. A decent point. If Austin wasn't absolutely brutal, we could have been in bother at times. A wee chance to win it at the end, but 3 points for either team would have been harsh. Despite their poor start, Falkirk away is one of the hardest fixtures of the season. A point and a clean sheet is alright by me.
  2. Ian McShane Signs 2yr deal

    Easily his best game for Saints on Saturday. Just edged out Reilly for MotM for me. He seems to be getting better every week. Superb.
  3. REALLY short notice, so I know it's a long shot. Got a game of 5s tonight at 7pm, Super Soccer on Scotland Street (Indoor astrograss) Got 9 players at the moment, just a friendly game, don't need to be fit or talented! Reply or PM me.

  5. Injury Updates

  6. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    That's plan B
  7. Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Long shot, I know, but does anyone have any spare tickets going for tomorrow? I'm looking for 2, my old man went down to the ground to get them while I was at work today, but got the wrong end of the stick, thought the office opened at 2 rather than closed at 2. Long story short, there's 2 buddies without tickets for the match, if anyone has any spares, could they let me know, cheers.

  9. I moved from the main stand to sit in the North Bank about half way through last season. I now stand in the singing section and, although there is some swearing and a lot of shouting, for the most part, it's positive and supportive of the team. In my opinion there's a HUGE difference between shouting "You're f**king pish Sammy" and "Come on tae f**k Sammy, you're better than that". Both criticism, but worlds apart in terms of attitude. I hear far less of the negative stuff in the singing section than I did sitting behind the home dugout. Some songs contain swearing and others have a go at other teams or players but it's mostly tongue in cheek and the energy is mostly positive, even when we're losing or not playing well.
  10. Craig Samson

    I like Samson, he's more than decent at this level. I think what people forget sometimes is that St Mirren are playing in the 2nd tier in Scotland. It's true that he's never been great with shots, particularly low shots, across his goal, but all the players we sign will have their limitations or weaknesses. The same thing happened when Billy Mehmet was with us, his all-round contribution was excellent, but people would constantly moan about his finishing, which was the part of his game that often let him down. Let's face it though, if he'd been as good a finisher as he was a footballer, he wouldn't have been playing with us, It's that simple. What you need to find at a club like ours is a group of players who's strengths and weaknesses create a balance across the squad, I think we have that, more or less.
  11. Harry Davis

    I don't think he was kidding anyone on when he signed, the club knew that he would be out for a while with a serious injury. With that, you accept the risk that there may be setbacks. It was obviously weighed up by the club and they decided that, to sign a player of that caliber, the risk was worth the potential gain. As far as I can figure out, he's more or less on schedule so far.
  12. Liam Smith - 1 year loan

    I've been impressed with him so far but maybe hadn't realised just how much he contributes. I just watched some of the game back on iPlayer, have to say, he was at the heart of most of our positive play yesterday. Involved in both goals and pretty solid defensively. Looking like a great bit of business so far.
  13. Jamie McCart

    looked decent, had an experienced front 2 to deal with and did well for the most part. I'd be tempted to leave him and Baird in for the Brechin game, but I think Buchanan's experience might win him his place back, especially when the rest of the defence is so young.
  14. Took my mate along to the game on Saturday, not a St Mirren fan, or even a football fan, but we stood in W7, the atmosphere was great, and he loved every minute. Think he'll be along to games on a fairly regular basis now. Weirdly, without knowing the first thing about football, he picked Reilly as his MotM ahead of Morgan. He was impressed with his work rate and ability to bully much bigger players. He's 110% a team player, his attitude is 2nd to none, puts the team and the result above himself and is a constant threat, dangerous himself and creating chances for other players. Morgan is the star of the show at the moment, but Reilly's contribution (and Cammy Smith's for that matter) should not be underestimated. Hopefully he'll bag himself a couple against the Pars, since they seem to rate him so poorly. Shows the difference the right management team can make to a player.
