  1. League or Cup

    I just think winning the Scottish cup is the big one for us. I was only 7 when we won it the last time and I just think it would be amazing to do it again in my lifetime. I've seen us win this league twice, and it's great, but the Scottish cup is the big one, especially with European football the next season. We will win the championship at some point in the future, but will we ever win the Scottish cup again? Who knows.
  2. League or Cup

    Winning the cup all the way. Winning the championship is great of course, but the best thing about being in the top league for a team like us is that it gives you a much better chance of winning a cup. You can sign much better players, and winning a cup is basically the pinnacle for a club like us.
  3. Shull's actually managed to troll himself here. Sensational stuff.
  4. You can tell the other players in the team respect and trust him. He's the guy who has actually won something with the club and brings valuable experience. Baird has improved significantly this season, and I wouldn't be surprised if having a goalie he can trust behind him is as much a factor as having Davis next to him. We are very lucky to have him, especially when you see some of the other goalkeepers kicking around in this league.
  5. Craig Samson for me as well. He's been fantastic, and won us so many points with big saves at crucial times. Best goalkeeper in the league by a considerable distance.
  6. Buchanan probably worried about his game time with Davis, Baird and probably McKenzie ahead of him. I'd be surprised if Ross wouldn't have preferred to keep him with McKenzie and Davis injury problems, and Davis not fancying the plastic pitches, but you can understand Buchanan wanting to play every week as he's definitely good enough to be a starting CB in this league. Fair play to him, he contributed greatly to where we are now and I wish him well.

    I thought we were good today. A few ropey moments at times, but we were worth the win, and Samson did what he needed to do. He's a great keeper at this level. My one gripe was that towards the end there were at least two occasions we hit long range shots straight at the keeper, one from Morgan, one from Mullen, both in the last ten minutes. I get that we are an attacking team and want to score goals, but there is a time and a place. Both times the opportunity was there to just move the ball on and keep it in the opposition half instead of putting it in the goalkeepers hands to launch it up to that big striker who I thought played really well and had and absolutely fantastic tussle with Davies. McGinn was man of the match for me. Controlled the game from start to finish. Davies and Reilly close behind him.
  8. St Mirren V Dunfermline 16 December

    I don't really understand why people are complaining about the crowd. It seemed pretty decent to me considering the time of year. For most people this is a pretty busy weekend. People's partners, kids and grandkids are busy as well and it's not always possible to leave it all to someone else while you head off to the football. That's probably part of the reason for the early leavers too. Getting home 15 minutes earlier than usual can still salvage some brownie points!
  9. St Mirren V Dunfermline 16 December

    He's a good player, but the only reason I left him out is because he's just come back into the team. He's only played a handful of league games for us. Hopefully he stays fit and we get to see him and McKenzie together for an extended period after Christmas.
  10. St Mirren V Dunfermline 16 December

    Great result today. I think we are nearly there as a team who can go on and win this league now, but January is going to be big for us. We need two or three players to really bring the squad up to the level it needs to be to really take it on and get it won. We've now got at least five players in Samson, Eckersley, McGinn, Morgan and Smith who are better in their position than anyone else in the league, and we have Jack Ross of course, who is a fantastic manager at this level. I reckon we are a winger, a midfield ball winner and probably another good striker away from a league winning side, and I reckon with a manager of the quality of Ross we can get them.
  11. The Perfect Goal?

    Are we not the second top scoring team in the league? It's the other end where the problems are.
  12. Stephen Mallan

    Magennis could be dropped as well, with Smith, Morgan and Reilly as the front three. I think McShane has played better than Magennis so far this season.

    Imagine not being able to enjoy it. Enjoy the great escape, followed by the push for the title. To not be able to enjoy the pumpings of Hibs, Dundee United, Falkirk, Morton, Ayr, Raith and the rest, to not be able to enjoy the 10 months unbeaten in the league at our own ground, where we could barely go ten days unbeaten previously. Imagine hoping we lose like we did yesterday, all because you wrote something stupid on the internet last December and can't admit you were wrong.
  14. St Mirren V Dumbarton 02/12/2017

    We need to sign a couple of players in January. Today was the worst we've been this season, against a team that always make life difficult for us, and that happens, but I think today also showed that the squad is light. Missing Smith was a really big deal today, and it showed that we didn't really have the squad to cope with it. I expect us to sign another striker, a winger, and a midfielder for the post Christmas push.
  15. Shankland

    It's easy to forget that everyone was shit in the first half of last season, and Shankland certainly wasn't the worst. From what I've heard, McCall is good at getting his players to believe in themselves and telling them how good they are. Shankland probably needed that after his second spell with us and his time at Morton.
