    First team captain
  1. Believe

    Yes, it's an old one but it worked 5 years ago and we, the fans, the players, the management and the board all need to believe. I noticed yesterday that a nervousness crept in, the drum stopped, the singing stopped, the support stopped urging the team on the way we have been for the last 14 months or so. Now we need to believe that we can win this league and urge the team on, back the squad and managment and support them when thinsg aren't going as well as we'd like. We need to be the 12th man home and away, lift the players for this last set of games. As things stand 7 wins is all it will take and I for one would love it if we could get the team over the line in the next 7 games because the 8th game is at home and it's against our Greenock friends. How good would that be going into that game as champions, having a guard of honour and being presented with the trophy.

    As things stand we can only lose the league so there's no room for any complaceny. We need the players to continue working hard like they have been and we need the support to push the team on in every game until the end of the season. On Utd, Livi have a game in hand over them (2 over us), if they win that game it puts them one point behind Utd. I wonder how they'd handle the pressure of not only trying to catch us but also making sure they aren't caught by Livi.
  3. And what about patienst from Johnstone, Howood, Houston and even Inverclyde who all use the RAH ? It's not very convenient for them. It was a politcal decision, the Health Secretary could have stopped it, the Finance Minister (a Renfrewshire MSP) could have improved funding for the Scottish NHS, the First Minister said live on telly there were no plans to close ward 15 before the last election. Not the first time she's been economical with the truth. Why haven't the Renfrewshire MPs and MSPs been standing up their party about this. The SNP might shout about putting Scotland first, they just conveniently ignore the people of Scotland.
  4. Kyle Magennis

    At the game I thought it was McMullen's own fault, watching a replay I still feell ths same. McMullen has went down early and then his leg follows through as if he's trying to kick at Kyle.
  5. ICT vs St. Mirren 25/11/17

    I watched the highlights but haven;t watched Robbo's interview. The match report6s I've sene all say McShane challenged Vigurs before the 2nd booking, the highlights show Vigurs taking McShane's feet away from him.The reports also quote Robbo as saying 'I have seen video of the penalty showing the ball was run out of play before the challenge' - Get your eyesight tested it must be a good yard away from the bye line
  6. It's good to see that all the work they've been doing for diabled supporters has been rewarded by The Scottish Disabled Supporters Association
  7. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    Wsn;t there something about them running some sort of football academy in the US and wanting to bring over a lot of their players, put them in the first team and them sell them on, the same plan they had when the Dungdee fans sold out their ownership. I wonder how that's been going ?
  8. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    Hypothetically speaking the club could hold Jack to the terms of his contract over resignation. For instance if there was a notice period of 3 months he could be held to that which would mean the new season would have started before he could actually take up the job.
  9. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    I just the next time they pass the buckets around no-one from another club puts nay money it. Don't forget they werre fan owned then sold out when people waved dollar signs in front of their eyes.
  10. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    I hope the club have already made a compaint to the SFA and asked them to investigate this, it was bad enough it all being over the presss saying they wanted Jack but if someone from Dungdee has flown out to speak with Jack after the club have refused permission then the SFA should take action.
  11. Project Brave

    I hope the club are against this, of the teams mentioned in the original post 4 out of the 5 were involved in the talks, how many players can they say have come through their youth team and went on to play consistently for the 1st team ? How many of them have then went on to become mebers of the Scotland squad ? Yet a club like St Mirren who have half their team brought through the youth ranks and had John McGinn and Kenny McLean go on to make the Scotland squad weren't involved with the talks. Malky MacKay should have been down at Ralston listening to the Saints telling him how it's done instead of turning round telling us this is how it should be done.
  12. Stephen Mallan

    I'd love to see Stevie Mallan stay with us for another year, I think between Jack Ross and Stevie McGinn he could really develop in that time. The problem is what kind of message does it send to players like Morgan and Magennis - that we'll keep a hold off them no matter what. That could end up that Mallan, Morgan and Magennis all walk away when their contracts expire then other young promising players look at us as a modern day Dundee United when under Jim McLean they tied young players up on one hundred year contracts. We have to be realistic, if there's a clause in the contract saying Stevie van go to another team if there's an offer in excess of £x, we should honour that contract even if it was the previous board that negotiated it.
  13. Stephen Mallan

    No one on here knows the details of Hamilton's deals or how much cash they got up front. It could very well be that they only got a few hundred thousand and the add ons made this up to a potential million pound deal and Hamilton released details saying the players had been sold for loadsamoney.
  14. Right now I feel a sense of relief more than anything, that might change over the next few hours or so but in one way I'm glad the season is over and in another I just want to see the team continue play the way they have for the second part of the season. The players and management (and fans) all deserve the chance to relax for a while now and hopefully we can build on this for next season. One little prediction, much as Shuggy Murray's goal at Forthbank a few years back has gained legendary status, I expect the current squad and they way they have played since January will gain similar status. Come on you Saints
  15. You do know that McQueen doen;t make it over the last fence and gets caught, even though every time I see the film I still think he wilol make the jump. A little quiz question, does anyone know the name of the famous actor who played the German chasing McQueen in the motorbike chase ?
