    The noisiest part of the support are being suppressed? They are still welcome to attend and sit or stand in their usual section and sing and bang their drum!
  2. W7 Fans & Banners

    After themselves having been physically banned from the stadium for a period of time. My understanding is there was liason between the group and club before the singing section was set up, before the drum was allowed, and over flags and banners being allowed as well as the drum. I'm already on record as saying I think they have added plenty of much needed atmosphere to the ground, it was great to arrive before the Morton game and hear noise from the stadium half a mile away. I would be surprised if in previous discussions where the club allowed the drum and banners if the club had given no warnings about circumstances where those decisions could be reversed. I've already think the punishment from the club side is OTT but the group also need to learn from this case and stop all the online drama - before the Morton game in question there were complaints about the seating arrangements, as well as comments the stadium looked almost full would they prefer fans were locked out to make way for banners?

    Well feel free to make your own version of the banner and walk around Greenock proclaiming the truth if you feel that strongly in favour of the banner then.
  4. W7 Fans & Banners

    Their ban was a case of those supporters weren't allowed in the ground - our ban is for flags rather than people.

    People who disagree with me are not met by cries of don't come back to watch St Mirren again by me. I wouldn't be surprised if the club reconsider the length of the flags and banners bans and having made their point about where the line can be drawn with banter it would be great if the banner section resolved things constructively with the club rather than whipping up a storm on social media.

    As far as i can tell, no one has said they were offended and everyone knows the banner was displayed in a context of banter between derby rivals. The club have banned no fans over the banner, but have said (at the moment) that no other banners will be allowed this season.

    In an age where drunken Rangers fans with alcohol problems narrowly avoid jail for posting threats about the Hibs manager on facebook [see this week's news], it is just possible that our board could have been advised that grown men holding up banners calling people from a named town "scum" could get the club fined or the individuals concerned arrested / thrown out the ground / charged with offensive behaviour and been a bit OTT in their response in trying to protect the banner makers /holders or the club from legal problems. The meltdown accusing the club of not caring about our fans, calling for boycotts, accusing the board of wanting to kill the atmosphere, colour and attendances at our own home games is entertaining to watch if nothing else.

    Like so...
  9. W7 Fans & Banners

    The facebook pages are what they are and I'll obviously be back. I agree the ban is OTT as well and it would make sense for the club to accept the offer to see banners in advance in future.
  10. W7 Fans & Banners

    I see some of the big supporters of the controversial banner are now calling for a banner at Inverness to "ban the board" from home games or move to a boycott of home games to hurt the board financially since they don't care about real fans and only care about money. Personally I am worried clubs will drop their interest in Lewis Morgan, Jack Ross et al and deal us a death blow by moving in to sign up our singing section and banner makers on long term contracts. Without over-exaggerating one bit we could be looking at the death of St Mirren Football Club as we know it.
  11. W7 Fans & Banners

    I don't remember "all feedback" being positive among our own fans about the banner and despite saying I wasn't offended by the banner but thought "Greenock Morton trophyless..." would have been funnier and using the word "scum" on the banner could have landed the club in bother with the SFA or SPFL or had us fined if they took the view the club allowed or encouraged fans to display a banner implying everyone from a certain location is "scum". I do remember that probably a dozen fans who thought the banner was brilliant recommended that if I was that offended (I wasn't) I should not come back to watch St Mirren and saw other fans who also thought a banner without the word scum also being given the same advice.

    If St Mirren had been given Delia's budget at Celtic it would have been Tommy Craig / Gary Teale/ Ian Murray spending the cash... let's just agree to disagree that we would have won the league (premier, rather than championship) under any of them?
  13. Lewis Morgan

    Even when Morgan isn't at his best (eg Morton game) he was still at the heart of most of our most dangerous moves - most of our shots came through him, he was brought down for the penalty and laid on the pass for Reilly when he was brought down.

    Lost close to £7m in the last 12 months before paying off Pedro and his coaching team... close to £16m in debt to their board and other investors
