  1. Sure about that bud? End of February we were 8 points adrift at the bottom of the league. Against that background, having to slaughter a couple of diddy teams to stay in the Championship ain't too shabby.
  2. Are we saying that today's goal was better than Mallan's masterpiece against Dundee a couple of seasons back?
  3. Some insightful pre and post-match punditry from Greenock's answer to Gary Neville. Oh dear.
  4. Jeezo - this thread went downhill faster than Franz Klammer
  5. Right enough, looks like they've found the new Michael Parkinson there
  6. Born and raised on the Moray Firth coast. Friends of the family took me to Pittodrie to watch Aberdeen v Saints (Mcavennie et al) in an effort to indoctrinate me into the way of the sheep. I came away liking Saints. Just sort of went on from there. Moved to Yorkshire in 96 so have seen more away games than home since then. You'd think absence would lessen the agony of a 3-0 home pumping off QOS wouldn't you? [emoji22]
  7. Aye, that Paulo Maldini fella was pure pish [emoji6]
  8. Och, a lot of nonsense. The likes of Ayr, Dumbarton and Dunfermline are just as pish as we are - just need a couple of wins, which by the law of averages we are due, and we're back in the mix. Then all we have to do is be fractionally less pish than one other side, scrape through the playoffs and start afresh next season. Couple of canny signings in January alongside some judicious GTFs and Ross can manage this. In the meantime, lets have a Challenge cup final day out and then start another decade long winning run against the great unwashed. Chin up.
  9. Absolutely right - the makings of a right player in Jack Baird. I'd hoped Webster would bring him on but Webster's been such a bombscare himself he's been little help to Baird. Still reckon Mackenzie could be the man for the job if we can keep him fit for more than five minutes. Our only win in recent times against Hibs - centre back partnership of Baird and Mackenzie.
  10. Agree with most of your post but since when was Shankland a dud? He's only 21 and got into double figures last season.
  11. Don't want St Mirren to become one of those clubs that sack their manager as soon as they go through a bad patch. Fair enough a very poor start to the season but to be fair, I struggle to remember the last time we made a good start to a season and at least it's coming off a decent end to the 2015/16 season for which Rae was largely responsible. I was reasonably pleased with the signings during the summer (maybe too many centre forwards but at least that's an attacking move) and surprised to see how badly they're faring. 'Sack The Manager' just adds another distraction and I'd prefer everyone's attention to be on backing the team. Rae to stay.
  12. That the same lad that got a Scotland call-up a few years back?
  13. Bit off-topic but whatever became of McGinn's legal action against the club in relation to Thommo's Zulu re-enactment? Assume it just went away as soon as he left for Hibs?
  14. Anybody else see that coming a mile off? Soul destroying.
