'Tremendous'? Really?

In St Mirren terms absolutely.

 

 

We had a few big performances, but were typically a bit shite, and flirting with relegation. In fairness, I suppose it is all relative, right enough.

That was in a big spending SPL when teams were still throwing money they couldn't afford about. It was a far stronger league then than it is now. Remember hearing we had the smallest playing budget in the league three out of our first four seasons back in the top league.

Still stayed up every time though.

Great balance sheet but in fairness pretty shite football. Albeit admittedly way better than the last 3 years. All relative as Drew said.

I think we all know it's McAllister that's the "out".

I was told by a usually reliable source that Webster would be leaving asap so it may well be him

Calling those days "tremendous" is obviously ludicrous but I would almost give a kidney to be back at that level with Jack as manager and a budget which is competitive with the other SPL clubs our size. Now THAT could be tremendous.

Todd, O'Brien, Stelios, Storie, Smith, Fee-jelly-deh, McGinn, Loy.... if we get out of this and Ayr United go down, will their fans say 'those Paisley basturts bought their way out of it with their sugar daddy splashing the cash?'

They'd be wrong to do so but they can say what they like as long as they are doing it from League One next season with us still in this league thinking about challenging for promotion to the SPL.

Not true only the first season back and even then that was debated by Inverness fans.  The second season the lowest budget was Gretna and the third and fourth season Hamilton had a much lower budget.

Think we were rock bottom going into that game. It was one of those "do I really need to go" games. Went along feeling sick, walked home feeling 10 feet tall.

It's ok his laptop works in the hoose :)

However , could you imagine an agent getting a sniff of money coming in and changing the goalposts ?

Only slightly , but enough to delay ?

Just a thought.
