  1. St. Mirren v Dunfermline

    Superb idea. Fame at last. I’ve not read all this, but if folk disagree that Davis is the best defender in the Championship then fair enough. He’s not showy, reads the game well and I can’t think of anyone better.
  2. Yesterday was nervy, but we shouldn’t forget that these are good times. The past year has been one of the best in my 40 odd years of supporting the club, and it’s one we’ll all look back on fondly in years to come.
  3. St Mirren v Brechin Sat 24th Feb

    It was one of those days. After the first half hour, sImple passes were going astray, we looked one paced and didn’t play with any tempo. That made for a nervy afternoon for everyone. However, we won a game that we would’ve drawn or lost not so long ago, and are 11 points clear at the top of the league. I’ve noticed that about McShane before - he attracts criticism but a lot of the time it’s because he’s trying to create and play a risky forward pass. He wasn’t any better or worse than anyone else yesterday but has become a bit of a whipping boy for some. Onwards and upwards.
  4. Good luck to Barnsley. Magic and BFC seem like reasonable guys. We all want the best for our clubs. No need for some of the ‘pub league’, ‘team full of binmen’ pish on social media platforms. But we’ve all got our roasters, as every thread on here shows [emoji41].
  5. Barnsley are offering a massive wage rise and an unexpectedly big step up the career ladder. The fact that he is having to think about it is a good thing for us. If he stays, he’s got an improved contract, no need to uproot his family or live away from home, a club where he’s got great relationships with everyone, a league title to go for and will still be viewed as the next big thing in management. Some folk strive for more and more in terms of money and career, but happiness is a much underestimated commodity in life.
  6. There’s no doubt that JR would interview very well and that, from what Chick says, he’s the kind of young manager that Barnsley are looking for. However, there are a couple of points that would go against him. He’s only been managing for 2-3 seasons in total and he won’t be that familiar with English Championship teams, players etc. I think taking the interview is a smart move for him. Even if he isn’t offered the Barnsley job, he’ll be talked about in positive terms within the game down there and that’ll do him no harm for the future. Peter Houston said on the radio that this chance had come at the wrong time for JR, and Jack will have to weigh up what he stands to gain and lose if he’s offered the job. Fingers crossed that Gareth Ainsworth is reading the riot act to the Wycombe board just now and demanding that he’s allowed to speak to Barnsley.
  7. Welcome Jack Ross

    What a beautiful man er..... I mean what a wonderful job he’s done.
  8. 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.
  11. Speculation Thread

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

    I see Jack's popularity still isn't universal .
