  1. Project Brave

    It is discrimination if the rules say "you can't play that player because you don't have enough young players in your team". You can argue away to your heart's content but at the end of the day if the rules say you can only have so many of "this" type of player in your squad then it is discriminating against others who do not fit "this" criteria.

    Until youngsters are instilled with the belief that they are equally able with both feet and develop a high level of close control we are doomed as a footballing nation. Watching the Brazilians the other night at Wembley it was apparent that they are comfortable receiving the ball from any direction and are able to pick out a pass or shot with either foot. I don't think they are naturally gifted enough that this is raw talent, I believe this is learned and anyone given the training and practise can learn these skills. Maybe I'm wrong but it really bugs me that quite good players will not touch the ball with the wrong foot and are therefore more easily defended against.
  3. Three Season Plan

    The length of time players sign contracts for now means that teams need to be successful straight away. There is no 3 year plan. If we don't do well with the current crop of players this season we will have a different crop of players next season with which to mount a challenge for the league. The days of three year team builds is long gone in the lower divisions.

    I don't think the problem is being unable to accept money. It is the issuing of smart cards. How do you know it is not being immediately. Addressed? I think you are being a little unfair

    Is the season ticket webpage down or is it because I'm using an iMac and iPhone?
  9. I am surprised that this was an enlightenment. What he says I would have thought to be basic match preparations! http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39793314
  10. Bid accepted for Kyle McAllister?

    What I'm saying is that people with no ambition stay within their comfort zone. People with ambition will try a harder role when the chance arises as they want to step up a level and prove that they are better than what they have already done. I think any player who looks for a move to a big club to hover around the fringes is taking a superb gamble that they will not be out of a job when their contract expires. Personally I think if he had no ambition he would have signed the first contract extension he was offered, but no, he wanted to try and get a better deal just like people in all walks of life who show ambition.
  11. Bid accepted for Kyle McAllister?

    On the contrary, This shows huge ambition. The player is risking a lot to go to a bigger club where first team football is not guaranteed. You would need to show a huge amount of ambition to take on a job on that basis. He clearly want's to be a successful player who earns a decent level of money from the game. You can't hold him back from that and cite that he has no ambition!
  12. Down Down Deeper And Down

    I see they have given up too with them announcing their final 'electric' tour later in the year
  13. St Mirren Squad 2016/17

    If it was his second cruciate injury then yes maybe, however if only one of his cruciates has gone the other is likely to follow suit. Darren McGregor and Allan Russell spring to mind
  14. Looking at the replay it looked like the Saints defender played the ball before scything the Celtic player down which in those days, if I remember correctly, most refs would have waved play on.
  15. Woul it be worth hiring Hampden if they need to win it to win the title? That would be a nice payday
