  1. Absolutely over the moon with Gary Mac resigning. He was my pick for PoY last season. Nothing 2 do with me putting £50 on him anytime scorer when we beat Morton 4-1 down there at 7/1. [emoji3]
  2. I think most St Mirren fans myself inc. would have loved Goodie to get promoted. Not only for his years of great service, affinity to our club and being our cup winning captain. I would like to see him being successful as I would love for him to be our manager sometime in the future but then again if he is too successful he will never look at managing us.
  3. Yes I believe they would struggle to get in our top 4 if they were in the Scottish Premiership and had the financial constraints that our teams work under. St Johnstone have arguably the best manager out with Rodgers who works wonders year in year out in Tommy Wright. The move for Mallan to Barnsley is a good one for numerous reasons. More competitive league, money and better exposure to go to even bigger club than Barnsley. If he keeps progressing his stay at Barnsley could be a short one and could go on to better things. He deserves his move he has been excellent
  4. My point is that we they wouldn't easily finish in a top 4 position if they were in the Scottish Premiership.
  5. Barnsley got an average crowds of 13,000 last season with Newcastle, Leeds etc visiting. They would only easily get in the top 4 if they had the finances they get now. They are no bigger club than Dundee Utd or Hibs
  6. Unfortunately I don't believe we as a club could knock back £300k for a player who could run down his contract and leave for nothing. Do I think he is worth more. Course I do but I would happy we got something for him now and negotiate a sell on fee rather than get sod all next summer. Stevie has totally deserved this move. For the last two years he has scored over ten goals from midfield in struggling teams. I hear he works on improving his game after training so it's an example to other youngsters at club that if you work hard on your game and showcase your skills in our 1st team for two / three years you also can achieve a move to a better league and bigger club and progress your career. That is how we sell our club to youngsters we target. Sign for us and if your good enough you will get your chance in the 1st team. Give us two / three seasons then move on to bigger things. I hope Stevie's career goes from strength and I will watch that with keen interest. I am grateful I got to see this talented young man in action for us and I thank him for the many fantastic memories.
  7. Dundee Utd have just signed another player Billy King from Hearts. I can only think the signings of King & Keatings are for the Premiership and if they don't make it they will let a lot go
  8. Well done Jack. Well deserved [emoji122]
  9. Gordon Scott really is a breathe of fresh air. What difference from the last BoD. It not only from a communication point of view.
  10. You don't often see 30+ players at this level given a 2 year deal but has been a solid signing since he came in so good news
  11. The past 3 months the football have been a joy. Best football I had the joy to see was Danny's 2nd season in charge. Unfortunately I never got to see Fergies Furies.
  12. I love a Flarey Bob rumour. Always makes me chuckle because he always gets someone. Even though I know it's a gag I always google them anyway in appreciation to FB
  13. We should want Dundee Utd out of the league with their budget with Hamilton & Inverness coming down. If that happens anyone of eight teams will fancy their chances including us. The Championship is probably the most competitive league in the country and will again be next season no matter who is in it. If Jack Ross is allowed to wheel and deal like he was in January and feels the need to do that I feel optimistic about the season ahead. In saying that I always feel optimistic going into a season. It's exciting seeing new players coming in and it's a clean slate for players and teams to impress.
  14. Relief is my overriding emotion. If we keep majority of the current squad I am confident we can have a successful season and we can put this one behind us. We go again next season
  15. Your right it's my fault we never won a game until December. It's also my fault we survived the playoffs by goal difference. That was the problem. Have a day off. Nobody said Jack never did a good job keeping us up but only to say it was early to compare him to probably the greatest manager ever. There is also many times I have felt pride being a St Mirren fan and part of a real family club. Here is a couple 1987 Cup Final Tom Hendrie's Promotion season Gus McPherson's promotion season 2013 League Cup Win Just because I don't want to celebrate survival doesn't make me any worse a fan.
