  1. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    Just seen that - speechless! My old da hasn't watched a St Mirren game with English commentary since the 2013 cup final. We got him BT Sport in as he is more or less housebound now so he'll have St Mirren overload over that month!

    Absolutely - I know I am!
  3. Dunfermline v Saints. (Friday 26/01/18)?

    Three TV games in a month?! That's us surely big time charlies again :-)
  4. Brechin v St Mirren (9th December)

    OK Saints - back on the horse. 3points and back to the top of the league please.
  5. St Mirren V Dumbarton 02/12/2017

    6 league goals makes him joint top scorer in the league. 2 goals away to the team in 3rd is surely a good thing. A bad day at the office for all buds but I'd certainly rather have Reilly in the team than anyone else we can afford. But like you say it's all about opinions- hopefully we're all laughing about this at the title party next May

    Looks like it was a good game to miss. Cold comfort though 🙁
  7. St Mirren V Dumbarton 02/12/2017

    Saints victory along with wins for Dunfermline and Falkirk will do the trick. 5 points clear at 1650 tonight 🙂
  8. St Mirren V Dumbarton 02/12/2017

    Agreed. A bit surprised we never nabbed him when we had the chance.
  9. St Mirren V Dumbarton 02/12/2017

    Can't make today due to son's birthday party. Hoping for a win. I think it'll be tighter than the 4-1s being talked about though. 2-0 Saints (Reilly & Smith)
  10. Good Riddens Italy Football Club

    I had been impressed by Germany and Brazil during the tournament and thought that the former were a bit unlucky in the semi-final. In the final itself, I thought France were - overall - the better team and would have been the more worthy winners. Losing their main player - even with only 10 mins to go - may well have cost them the cup - we will never know of course. I agree that "most talented player" is indeed subjective but I think anyone would struggle to argue that France were not the worse for his absence. I think he won player of the tournament and that, along with his pedigree throughout his career, points to his red card being a potentially huge factor in the outcome - there are many examples of star players coming 'to life' in the dying minutes of games and delivering key victories. Cannavaro had a great tournament and was a world class defender - but for me Zidane was the best player on show. All 'ifs and buts' of course. I guess we just agree to disagree on this one. A more relevant disagreement for us would be - best St Mirren Championship winning team of the last 20 years - Hendrie's Heroes or Ross' Rockets (tbc) :-)
  11. St Mirren v Livingston(Postponed) 11/11/17

    The wee man and I on the train in from the southside to central. Got a bit of Saints Shopping to do: Going to pick up the wee man's new strip, some DVDs for my dad's Christmas ... Oh ... and three points from the Livi! COYS

    1. Would need to see that again but I remember a lot of decisions seemed to go against us that day - more than our fair share. 2. I didn't say that Zidane shouldn't have been sent off - but that the Italian tactics were designed to get that reaction - thereby spoiling the game by removing the most talented player from the final. Being annoyed that a cynical tactic spoiled a game by inciting a violent reaction is not the same as condoning the reaction. Anyway, it certainly worked for them but I doubt many non Italians would have been applauding it. In my opinion the best side did not win the 2006 World Cup but each to their own. So I'm still enjoying my chortle at their demise.

    Got authorised to WFH for most of this week and therefore only have an hour and half's journey home without the 5am rise to follow - so right up for this one. A draw is good enough for top spot but I see a narrow win coming our way. 1-0 (Reilly)

    Penalty and red card totally ruined the game. Sinclair more or less admitted he made a meal of it on the radio just now. Rubbish for us neutrals. Boo...
  15. ICT vs St. Mirren 25/11/17

    Just watched the highlights - No question it was a penalty - Morgan was shifted out to the side by the challenge. Also - muchos respect to the brave buddies who suffered that weather yesterday - I was shivering just watching it!
