  1. Any further faxes received on this?
  2. I wonder what his next job in football management will be......if he ever gets one.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I suppose that the term 'support' can mean different things. Financial support, emotional support etc. I tend to view it that, as with people, football teams/players/management need more support when things aren't going well. The idea that you would need to convince or impress someone before they would offer you their unconditional support doesn't seem very supportive to me.
  7. It was definitely Hibs.
  8. I would also give a mention to Adam Eckersley. I've tended to think that he's been steady enough but thought he was excellent yesterday. Won the vast majority of his challenges, closed opponents down and got forward to support Morgan. I think most of us were very worried when Harry Davis was injured, but big Bairdy has done a great job and looks a different player to earlier in the season.
  9. Stelios played at Kirkcaldy without having much success. If they play like they did then (and they were successful), Raith will come and get 10 men behind the ball, let us have lots of easy possession and close us down in the wide areas and the final third. I think we should be ready for a frustrating afternoon unless we get a goal and force them to change their tactics.
  10. Jack Ross won't though. Eckersley has played on every occasion he's been available since he arrived at the club.
  11. I don't think it does anyone any good for our support to be on noticeably on edge about certain players. Let the team get on with it and be confident in our players' ability to deal with things on the park.
  12. Can we please not have any "aw naw, he always scores against us" if Skacel plays on Saturday? He scored plenty when he played for Hearts, but hasn't scored when he's played for Dundee Utd or Raith against us. The negativity almost becomes self fulfilling. He's not the bogey man he used to be.
  13. To do so well and lose it late on is a massive boot in the baws for Raith. I feckin love it!
  14. Fleming has been good and loves a penalty save. The only note of caution would be that this time last year Scott Gallacher was pretty highly regarded at Alloa.
  15. It's the Youth Cup Final tomorrow night apparently, and it's Rangers v Celtic. The Daily Record is listing Ryan Hardie as one of Rangers' ones to watch. As Raith are playing at Easter Road on the same night, who gets first shout on Hardie? Whatever happens at Easter Road tomorrow night, it'll be a hard physical and mental shift for Raith's players and they'll need to get themselves lifted again for Saturday. I'm hoping for a physical encounter with a red card for M'voto and a demoralising defeat (by lots of goals or even an undeserved last minute penalty to rip the heart out of them). A couple of injuries for key Raith players wouldn't be a disaster either. Raith haven't won away since October, and don't have the option of choosing to play on a dry, bobbly surface which they seem to prefer.
