    It is absolutely mind boggling that people are still finding this so hard to understand.

    But people did turn up early. It took them at least an hour and twenty minutes to clear the full volume of people. I turned up 25 minutes before the game, and stood in a queue for 25 minutes. At no point was there no queue. There wasn't no queue then five minutes before kick off everyone appeared, so what time should everyone have been there at? 1? 1.30? Was the ticket desk even open then? Trying to blame the fans for this f**k up is really poor.

    The club were the only people to blame. If everyone had turned up at 2 pm, some people would have still have missed kick off. The queue started at around 2pm and everyone was finally in around 3.20, going by what's been posted on here. People arriving at different times should have actually helped, if everyone had actually turned up at 2pm, like some idiots seem to think they should have, it would have been worse.

    In terms of the catering, they just f**ked themselves on that one. I would have probably got something, but due to the massive queue, the amount of time it took to get in, and the general air of incompetence around the place I didn't bother.

    It was a total shambles to be fair. You can't really pin this on the fans who went to the game, not matter how very hard some people will try. I turned up at 2.35 and got in at three, and I thought I'd got there pretty early. It's not like 5000 fans turned up, it was a quite big away support, but there were probably more at Falkirk and Easter Road last season and they coped just fine. The guy in the ticket booth was blaming St.Mirren (not that I actually asked), but I find it hard to believe that Dunfermline honestly thought only a couple of hundred people were going to turn up. Whoever's fault it was, it definitely wasn't the fans, who were the ones who got shafted, again.
  6. We went to a back 4 early in the game yesterday. Stelios pushed up into midfield and was subsequently hooked at half time. We lost two goals against the back 4. Defence is a big issue as a three or a four. They are very exposed against pace and under the high ball, and we really struggle to pick up the second ball. Dunfermline's forwards barely won a header all day, apart from Higginbotham who destroyed Stelios. The ball either went over the top, or the second ball was picked up by a later runner. I thought Dunfermline were really good to be honest. They were quick, attacking and always had an option. They pressed hard and looked really fit, and were by far the best team we've played this season. That's the standard we need to be at to win this league.
  7. I agree to be honest, defensively we were not great yesterday, though it seemed to me more a collective problem with the system, rather than any one player. Their first goal is a bad one, three defenders there, and none of them come out to close the pass (McGinn was already beaten), and none of them pick up the runner. It's ok to say the midfield should cover better, but there are only two of them, one of the centre halfs should have stepped out there.
  8. We are lucky to have him. A cup winning legend, and hopefully a league winning legend this season. An all time St Mirren great, absolutely no argument.
  9. How come Collum is doing so many of our games anyway? Has his ineptitude become too apparent and he's being quietly shunted down the leagues? He was really shit today, though I was enjoying Stelios ripping the pish out of him at his substitution
  10. Great result. Probably not our best performance, but it's an important win, and we are very much in this here. Next week should be a belter. Ross really has been a breath of fresh air for this club. The new signings he's brought in this summer have all been good, but for me Samson has been the pick of the bunch. It's been a while since we've had a goalkeeper we can really rely on the way we can with him. Controls his box, makes great saves, and strong on the 1 on 1. In most games he's made saves at vital times which have provided a bedrock for our victories. Signing him was just another masterstroke from our manager.
  11. Great result, huge three points. Ross keeps showing us what an excellent manager he is, we are very lucky to have him. Huge test next week against United, but take something from that and it must be the best August we've had for at least 10 years.
  12. Jack Ross Must Go.

    Shull, I think it's fairly obvious you are going through some hard times right now, so I'm sorry I called you a f**king moron. We aren't all ignoring you mate, and even if folk are you shouldn't take it so hard. Maybe give yourself a break for a while, rather than the daily performance on here, which certainly doesn't seem to be making you feel any better. Good luck.
  13. Jack Ross Must Go.

    To be fair, Topcat is right, since Jack Ross came in lots of things have happened that don't normally happen. Things like winning the first league game of the season, winning a league game in August, winning lots of games at home, scoring more than four goals in a game, home crowd getting right behind the team..... this is not what normally happens. Tick tock.
  14. O'Brien's big plus for me was his kicking. It's much better than Samson's, who seemed to struggle to make the halfway line on Saturday. Still, his saves kept us in it when we were struggling for that first 20. I thought he played very well.
  15. A full blown meltdown because St.Mirren won. What a f**king moron.
