    Welcome to the Buddies Chris.

    Dont know the rules but would be surprised if we were to get an emergency loan defender in when we have given a first team squad player out on emergency loan.
  5. Darren Whyte Gone

    Was thinking the same there must be a game plan for Sunday. Think our back four will be from right to left Smith , Baird , Irvine , Stelos.
  6. QoS Game

    For quality watching St Mirren TV is best while abroad it's £7 im sure.
  7. QoS Game

    Hope your right. What would be your back line with so many out. Hearts lad right back, Baird central Stelos left back. Have we one more who can fit in ? Is Irvine available if so that would be my back four.
  8. Former Saints Goalkeeper Passes Away

    There were some right good players in that team. RIP Jim.
  9. Notice of Player Reference | Adam Eckersley, St Mirren FC

    Shull the Dunfermline player elbowed Adam first but gets off scott free. Adam retaliated with anger, yes that was wrong and was a red card. The question i ask is how the Dunfermline player did not get a yellow ? Would love to see the stats for this ref when doing our games. Been written on here he is a Saints fan i find that hard to believe.
  10. Notice of Player Reference | Adam Eckersley, St Mirren FC

    Cant see this being overturned would loved to be proved wrong. Only thing going for us is the fact the Dunfermline player elbowed him first.

    As it turns out London tube bomber Yahah Farroukh visited his family in Rothesay im sure i have seen him before . Wonder now if some sort of security will be introduced by Cal Mac. In Rothesay there are two male hairdressers more than enough for the male population these two owners are very disappointed that A Syrian was handed £15,000 to open a hairdresser in the town the help did not stop there as gudiance and fast tracked by the council to get the shop open. Two local hairdressers reporting their business are being affected. Its hard to understand for outsiders the lack of money on the island due to high unemployment. Very few have full time jobs lots of locals have 2 to 3 part time jobs. Next up bakers , the island has its own bakery, Electric Bakery producing Bread , rolls, cakes , various savoury pies deliverd through out the island to shops and cafes. Electric Bakery employes 10 full time workers. Mount Stewart sell Artisn bread to the public baked in house. Co-op also bakes bread in house. Next a local restaurant owner took ill and put the Waterfront up for sale dropping the price to £80,000. No idea who purchased the Waterfront but now another Syrian has been given £30,000 to open the Waterfront as a bakery. Bute has a small comunity the Scottish government seems to have a complete lack of understanding what a struggle it is for local businesses. Yet throw money at refugees to open two business to compete with local businesses in a high unemployment area is astounding. Yes we all know Syrian refugees need refuge and not all of them are bad. However there are plenty locals would cut there arm off to get £15,000 never mind £30,000 to go self employed. There has even been a brand new mini bus purchased to take refugees to prayers. Nothing here is not walkable . From what i hear think this will be a seat the SNP will loose sadly.
  13. Lewis Morgan

    Cant see that happening with a few month left on his contract. There has been one from us on the table for ages so why has it not been signed?
  14. Disgrace

    I got a bit of pie ! Oh aye when i got home after the game. See what age does to you , makes you forget but still lets you have fun.
  15. QoS Game

    Would not say poor , lets call it marked by two shadows to stop his runs. Jack will need to come up eith something to counter that.
  16. Syrian Refugees

    Yourself and all buddies will be made more than welcome would love to see you and other buddies over.
  17. Could We Eat Polar Bears ?

    You can eat almost anything have seen some things eaten that would make you boke. However if you are hungry i starving you will eat anything tbough maybe not a seagull thy were just too salty

    Ambience. You would have to see the concept inside to get the name. Getting trained by Scotlands top barista who roasts his own coffee. Using all types of milk the best i have tried is oatmilk with coffee its something else. Hot chocolate milk and white comes from france the white with coconut milk is orgasmic. Doing my own baking food also. Have a great vinyl sound system installed for back ground music where the customer picks the albums laid out in part of the sbop away from tables like a record shop. In that area have a frame with old concert ticket stubs. Next to that frames that hold album covers for art that can be changed. Seating area is contemporary art. Got a long bench against one wall upholstered in Bute tartan. The whole thing has come together better than expected. Trying to bring something different for here drink and food wise also. Applying for a wine and beer licence. You wont get rich here but should make a living. Thats the plan.

    Planing permission which took 8 month and a small fortune in fees to me was knocked back. I did that aplication through an architect so the application was professional . It was a coffee kiosk not a van. Sometime fate is with you as that led onto a shop in the seafront in Rothesay which went to auction so got it for a great price. Took the shop back to a shell now it is more or less ready. Had to get planning permission for a name change and to install an awning. Regarding figures mentioned above , first there is no secrets living on a Island hence my bank details and accountant are off the Island that was advice told to me by an Islander which i'm thankfull for. The story was run by the Herald a few month ago regarding the hairdressers I'm sure you can find it on the web. Heard the story before the print. Now the baking story is doing the rounds. As I am in catering I know the price figure for equipment 30,000 grand is not a lot of money to purchase industrial catering equipment.
  20. Massive Fire In London Tower Block

    There is probably some truth in there , she sounds like the kind of girl i like to sit next to at some party after clubbing on a Saturday night ( long time ago ) was always one who liked the rebel the nut case someone you did not take home to mum and dad because there was much too fun to be had , wink , wink.
  21. Syrian Refugees

    Its not because they are Syrian i write this it could be Spanish anyone. Its about a group getting help where the same level of help is not available to others. You mention the figure being higher than you have seen or expected. Why not come out and tell the local comunity first to build bridges. This story was coverd by the Herald a few months ago.
  22. Syrian Refugees

    Yes it has wheels very mobile

    They get a game of football after training I hear they love.
  24. Syrian Refugees

    Well my wife studied Polaties to become a teacher. She went through a goverment agency attending 3 classes a week. I could not believe the number of e-mails on a daily basis. My wife gave up financing herself. A Canadian girl went through the same process for a year. She ended up with nothing. A local brewery took her on as a cheff.
  25. Syrian Refugees

    Many have money transferd from Syria when they left the county. They must have as there are ones not working running around in cars one being a new Merc. Dont tell me that is a grant also ?
