  1. St Mirren's stance on SFA EBT

    Whatever it is, it isn't good enough.
  2. Paisley Pubs

  3. Paisley Pubs

    Does anything in that unit last longer than 6 months?
  4. Pretty sure the club have a list of all the ticket holders in the stand...
  5. Indeed, a pathetic statement from the SMFC CEO. First he says he "doesn't know why we are on the list", then says he does know why we are on the list, the says again he doesn't know why we are on the list. Not to mention the complete lack of empathy or apology on behalf of the club. Is this the best leadership we can get?
  6. It's only £1 at Edinburgh

    The charge is one thing, but the queuing and f**king around is another...
  7. It's only £1 at Edinburgh

    Ferrovial, a Spanish multinational construction/infrastructure firm.
  8. Heart Of The Community?

    I have a fundamental problem with this. It can't be about how they want "people to communicate with them". For SMISA/fan ownership to work it must be the other way round. They should seek out queries and address them proactively if they want to convince people to join the revolution. If addressing queries on BAWA is too difficult, the baw's burst.
  9. Rapists Footballers Charged

    Seems about right: "However I am bitterly disappointed that I was so badly let down by the criminal justice system and was forced to seek a remedy through the civil court."
  10. Fan Council Golf Day 2017

    Is it: members only; members + guests (as long as notified in advance); open to all; or decision to be made 3 days before the date?
  11. Paisley Pubs

    Don't know how I turned "Grill" into "Green" Is it a big chain or just Paisley & Erskine? Need to give it a try. Also anyone know when the new Cardossi's place opening in Arnotts? I'm getting rather impatient.
  12. Paisley Pubs

    Anyone been to Green in the Park on Canal St? What's the craic with it? Looks like they've done a decent job on the outside, but strange name.
  13. Heart Of The Community?

    It isn't about being "adult" or not. I find it a bit concerning that point point is being missed. Put simply, if I don't 'contact SMISA directly' it makes no difference to me. Where as, if SMISA choose not to engage on the primary social media platform, they risk missing out on valuable funds (£1,400 per sign up). The only people with anything to lose are SMISA. This is clearly a wider point than m original query, the same applies to every single person who has a query or who could be persuaded to part with their money.
  14. Heart Of The Community?

    Like I said, not the type of attitude that is conducive to maximising membership (and thus maximising funds). Just another example of my concern over fan ownership. There's a captive audience capable of being persuaded to join, surely this should be exploited rather than expecting people to approach SMISA.
  15. Heart Of The Community?

    Successful community groups usually achieve such success by going on the charm offensive and engaging at every opportunity. If answering questions in a dedicated section of the primary social media platform of the club is too much effort, then I don't hold much hope. Hopefully your response isn't reflective of SMISA though.
  16. Heart Of The Community?

    Slightly disappointing that a SMISA rep has chosen not to engage in discussion as yet, particularly in the SMISA section of the forum. Engagement is how you increase subscription (if that's what they want).
  17. OUR Stadium

    Our stadium m is perfect for our needs and requires minimum FM maintenance. 'Great' Ideas like painting the concourse blockwork are where the problems start. Once you've done it once, you need to continue to do it every 5 years or so until eternity, at great expense. Otherwise the place starts to look obviously filthy. It is unnecessary, unaffordable etc... By all means get Poz to design a few more pictures though. Edit: BinEK beat me to it
  18. Paisley Pubs

    Budgets is a franchise supermarket (or at least some of them are franchised) I believe.
  19. SMiSA's Latest Update

    For that he should be applauded. Anyone taking any other stance should be ashamed of themselves. Without values sport (and therefore sporting companies) is completely worthless.
  20. SMiSA's Latest Update

    I fully accept that Stu does absolutely not thing to endear himself to St Mirren fans (quite the opposite) and accept that he does his best to rub them up the wrong way, but there's no escaping that he raises some valid points in the middle of his waffle. It is disappointing that SMFC fans are constantly unable to identify the valid points and attack the poster himself in a "whataboutery" manner rather than actually deal with them for the benefit of the club. Those who instantly dismiss his points are at least as equally as bad as the poster himself, if not worse. If fans in positions of authority can't identify valid queries fan ownership is never going to succeed, where the person raising the query is a dik or not.
  21. 1877 Club

    Doing something isn't enough though. Politics is part of every walk of life. If you can't get the people on board you have failed. That isn't pessimism. Hopefully things change and a consensus is found.
  22. 1877 Club

    That's exactly the space I'm in when it comes to the whole fan ownership thing. Should maybe start looking for a new sport... (joke hopefully).
  23. 1877 Club

    The whole access thing has been "confusing" as you now accept, which was the point I was making in my original post. Nothing more. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity. I also didn't realise new members had to pay a £50 joining fee. Ouch.
  24. 1877 Club

    Wait a minute, I didn't object to you having an opinion. I specifically object to your accusation that I was fabricating things, which the evidence refutes. As for "the only thing that has changed", the e-mail extracts demonstrates that for a period non-members could walk up, then for a period non-members could not walk up. Clearly more has changed than you are willing to accept. I'm not out to slate the club or those involved. I want to be constructive but to move forward people need to accept the lessons which have been learned.
