  1. Welcome Jack Ross

    What a beautiful man er..... I mean what a wonderful job he’s done.
  2. Those were the early days under Alex Miller - attacking, goals, entertainment. It didn't stay that way.....

    I agree with this completely. I think that some (most?) referees are increasingly happy to flash cards, including reds, on a weekly basis. Red cards used to be rare and a last resort for the most serious offences. The only time that the issue of managing a game without cards is raised is when there's an OF game and maybe a cup final. I'm getting older, the game's changing and it's not as good as used to be in the olden days [emoji849].

    Ok, so you can't lunge dangerously with your studs up. Late in the game, McGinn cleared a ball up the line on the main stand side. Guy slid in and caught him. A foul was given and a booking to the Livingston player. What was the difference between that and Irvine's sending off? As soon as a player attempts a sliding tackle they are out of control. And he must have caught McGinn with his studs. That sounds like lunging dangerously with your studs up? Thomson saw what he thought he saw with Irvine's tackle and whipped the red card straight out. For someone who was only doing our game after a shambolic, 3 red card performance last week, he might have been wiser to give himself a moment of thinking time.

    Brian Graham would be decent and should score goals if he gets a run in the team. Conor Sammon was out of favour at Hearts. Where's he now? Big and strong and would score goals in the championship.
  6. Darren Whyte vs Jack Ross

    He had a torrid time in the 1st half but so did every other player. I was impressed with his attitude to stick at it and he got forward quite a bit in the 2nd half. I thought he was one of the few who came out with an element of credit in terms of his approach and attitude.
  7. Partick V St Mirren 22/7/17

    Absolutely woeful performance. Last season we went to Hamilton and played with 2 attacking wide men and were passed through and round all over the park. Today was exactly the same. These teams are in the top league because they're better than us, so we can't go and expect to play in an open manner. Piss poor all round and very worryingly like the start of last season. On a final point, Jordan Kirkpatrick is this season's Scott Agnew. I was surprised when we signed him and I've not been surprised by his performances.
  8. 2017/18 season tickets on sale now

    Season ticket bought. This time for a season of enjoyable, attacking football! A couple of years ago, I flew to the other side of the world for work and flew on what I thought could be some really iffy airlines. They were all great and it was only when I came into contact with BA at T5 that everything started to go wrong. A shambles of an airline and I'll make every effort never to fly with them again.
  9. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    I see Jack's popularity still isn't universal .
  10. Jack Ross - Manager of the Month

    JR's stock is high at the moment, and it's all on the back of what he and the players (many of whom he recruited) have done since January. He is also media friendly and managed to galvanise a support that was massively hacked off. On the back of that, Dundee have made an approach. GS can; 1) opt to tough it out by refusing Dundee permission to talk to JR and hope it turns out for the best, 2) reassure JR of the club and fans support for him, and maybe offer an improved contract to help persuade him to stay 3) not bother his bum and let Dundee get on with persuading JR to go. I'm not sure that GS can do anything but option 2 for the good of the club.
  11. Signing Targets For New Season - EXCLUSIVE!

    Any further faxes received on this?

    I wonder what his next job in football management will be......if he ever gets one.
  13. Speculation Thread

    From a BBC interview with JR today; The manager and his staff took Sunday off but were straight back to work on Monday to begin the process of building a side to mount a promotion challenge next season. Ross expects interest in midfielder Stevie Mallan to "firm up" and acknowledges that he may also lose Lewis Morgan, whose performances have generated interested other clubs, but he does not expect to make wholesale changes. "Naturally, I would like to keep the bulk of the squad together, and I will have to add two or three," Ross said. "I've always known there was a chance I would lose [Mallan]. I'd prefer not to, for obvious reasons because he's a big asset. But because of the relationship I have with him, he knows I want him to progress. "That will be a decision for Stevie himself, if there is firm interest, and the earlier that's done, if it is, the more it helps me. I'm realistic to know [losing players] might be the case and then it's about finding good replacements. "It very much depends on who leaves, but we don't need to add an awful lot if we keep the bulk of the squad together. For next season, the aim has to be to be promoted. I like to have aims, and I like the players to have that, and I probably started to think about that as soon as the game finished on Saturday. That's my job, top try to push this club as far as I can. "Not just since Saturday but prior to that, the form we were in and the way we were playing, you start to get more players coming to you and saying they want to play for St Mirren. I don't think we have to persuade people to be interested in coming here, they recognise the potential of the club." ------------------------------------------ It's a natural progression and a harsh fact of footballing life for guys like Mallan and Morgan to move on at some point. However, I've highlighted that last paragraph because that is a superb situation to be in when it comes to recruitment.

    Where's Loyal Supporter gone? I want to hear what Alex Rae thinks . It must say something that Rae didn't manage a club for a few years before he came here, he's not back in management and I doubt very much he'll ever be trusted to manage another decent sized club again. Well done GS. Decisive action was need and taken. After 3 and a bit disastrous seasons, things are looking up.
  15. Speculation Thread

    I thought Dobbie was back at QoS due to the affection he has for the club in a Thommo/Stephen McGinn type way? He's still an excellent player at this level but doubt he'll be interested in moving unless a daft offer came in.
