    TPAFKATS got a reaction from FTOF in Gavin Reilly   
    The boy refused our first contract and never signed the second, improved offer. Not really convincing me that he doesn't want to leave.

    The Glasgow School of Art may be rebuilt but not in that area of the City. I expect luxury flats or even student flats to cover that part of Renfrew Street. I dont believe the fire was an accident.

    It disnae matter what you or me call it.All that matters is every time the BBC,Radio Clyde or even newspapers report on our games the SDA will be mentioned.Thousands of people will Google to find out more about it and some of those thousands will use the Sponsors product.
    Easy,effortless money for the Club.
    Still can't believe the roofs ain't sponsored.

    You really do need to get a grip of yourself. Who is even considering changing the name of the club ? It’s a pile of breeze blocks and prefabricated concrete sections, of course we should sell the naming rights .
    We have had jersey sponsors for a couple of decades , players get sponsors, matches , balls , ball boys and even when we get a f**kin corner ... why should the Ground be any different. ?

    TPAFKATS reacted to Soctty in Gavin Reilly   
    Taking things rationally, Reilly decided to hold out on the two contract offers he had, which is his prerogative, but a fact nonetheless. Stubbs has come in and decided to withdraw the contract offer - as manager, that's his prerogative.
    I was a big fan of Reilly's in the championship, for his movement, workrate, constant pestering of defenders as well as the goals. The 20+ goals included 4 against Lothian Thistle, 2 each against Airdrie and Hearts Colts, and one each against Stranraer and Raith Rovers.
    While I am hugely appreciative of all his goals, the ones against lower league opposition don't - to me - serve as a signal that he would be able to do similar in the Premiership. The goals in the Championship can be taken as a better indication, and while he got 11 of those, I'm not sure he'd be anywhere near as effective at a higher level. I think he'd still give us the pestering, battling and movement, but we need more than that to survive and hopefully thrive.
    So, goalscorers are hard to come by in the Premiership, but taking goalscorers from lower divisions rarely pays dividends in the top league, so based on this I don't have a huge problem with the manager letting Gavin go, as long as we have someone better, more experienced and more proven at this level, to replace him.

    Reilly scored half his goals against lower league opposition in the cups, including four against Lothian Thistle and doubles against Hearts Colts and Airdrie. He was impressive in his all round play as well as his league goalscoring in the first half of the season before falling away a bit. Would've loved him to stay but I would think we have someone else lined up.
    He didn't decide to leave - Stubbs decided to take the deal off the table when he took over as it had been there for some time with Gavin not up for signing it.
    I think Mullen really started to come into his own towards the end of the season, and I would hope he can continue to develop next season, although I would be worried if he was our number 1 striker, no disrespect to the lad.

    Good luck to him. His 11 league goals were a help in clinching the title.

    I'm a bit sad to see likes of Gav going but end of the day I'm encouraged to see swift decisions being taken by the new manager.

    He repaid us by scoring 20+ goals last season so he's doesn't owe us anything.
    It would just be a poor decision on his part more than anything to leave. He has had a very stop start career. He is finally at a club where it has clicked for him, we are now in the PL, you'd think he would want to give it another year at least.

    It's the bog roll in the toilets that concerns me more is it tracing paper or nice thick soft paper. Close season is always a blast the grass is too long . The grass is too short. Birds make a bigger mess of the stadium, Sorry arena. than Morton fans. The shorts are too long. The shorts are too small. Will be glad when players are signed season starts and we are off to a flyer you will not care if it's pink tops, purple shorts and green socks with orange boots. Close season don't you love it. NOT ! Just shows I suppose what a huge part St Mirren play in your lives.

    He never mentioned the WC. He just said the people he needed to speak to about loans were "away" More likely on holiday imo but it wasn't made specific in his interview. He appeared to be rambling a bit hopefully just not wanting to give too much away. Have to say he didn't really inspire confidence in the interview. Not exactly a ST selling rallying cry.

    The STV news interview revealed that we should not expect any major signing for some time and that we need to be patient. He talked of nothing other than using the English loan market. Hopefully he has other feelers out and hopefully Jackson is a bit more clued up on the Scottish market. It appears there will be no signings of note for a while.
