  1. Today
  2. F.. Can't believe you missed it. An open goal and you hit the ball over the crossbar.
  3. Oh to trouble the top six, even for short periods. You are spot on. Both came through, lost their way, moved down a division and have wakened up to what is required off them to fulfill their potential. I've gone to a few Dunfermline games and definitely rate the lad. Out of our price range? Very likely with DAFC in and around a play off spot.
  4. Your photograph? An excellent likeness. You are taller than I thought.
  5. I forgot you were a Haddie not a Buddie
  6. How many home games have you been at where we have "set up not to lose"?
  7. I mostly agree with what you are saying. The point was that both broke through in Premier league sides who were by and large, very competitive at the times when they were breaking in. To clarify the boot up the arse though, in these cases, Shankland and Nesbit have both said they needed that reality check after being labelled as promising talents, that they could end up playing at places like Annan and Stirling their entire careers if they didn't work hard. Shankland had become a bit disillusioned in general, put on a fair bit of weight and had seemingly lost his way. Nesbit had fallen into the pitfalls of being around a poor choice of company. The Shankland we saw in his second spell with us was nothing like the one we see today. I'm glad both players have turned it around and would love both but I think the ship has sailed on them unfortunately. On the other side of the coin, look at someone like Tony Watt. 26 years old and still living off the back of a goal against arguably one of the best assembled squads the world has ever seen. He scored a goal against Barcelona and he'd made it. He maintains very decent moves despite the fact that in the last 5 years he has scored a grand total of about 13 or 14 league goals across 7 different clubs.
  8. Overstating Partick who hardly troubled the top 6 for any sustained period. Many players go through periods, Shankland being one, where they don't fulfil earlier promise. The managers, IMO, play a large part in this, showing they can, or can't, manage to get the best from a player as it's always easy to put all the onus on the player. Hence your "boot up the arse" point. Just remembered a comment from Rangers TV on Wednesday that Morias looks more like a weightlifter than a football player, looks like he weighs about 12 stone.................not counting below the waist.
  9. Shankland had to drop from Aberdeen to Ayr (via ourselves and Morton loan spells obviously) who were in League One and part time at that point to get his groove. Nisbett started out at Partick (who were troubling the top 6 in the Premier League at the time) but followed them down to the Championship where he still couldn't cut it. He then also dropped down to League One with Raith to find form and confidence. Both players needed a boot up the hole to kick start their careers. Stephen Dobbie needed similar around 2007 when he was pushing 17 stone playing for St. Johnstone and papped out to Dumbarton before going to QotS I agree, it is a sign of the times but a player like Nisbett will inevitably draw a lot of attention and given he still has 18 months on his contract, we'll be priced out....just like we were priced out of Leigh Griffiths when he was doing similar for Dundee in the Championship and Danny Lennon was making public statements about him. I'm also sure the likes of Hibs and Aberdeen fans would have taken the same standpoint when they couldn't have afforded to take Lewis Morgan from ourselves.
  10. Hope he,s fit to play on Sunday
  11. Shankland came from a much higher level of team and hasn't had to drop a couple of levels. It's a sign of the times that we can't look to sign a player from Dunfermline. We don't need Nesbitt, we have Obika.
  12. St Mirren 12/5, Aberdeen 6/5, 11/5 the draw. Shows how poor Aberdeen are right now, the odds would normally be, IMO, much wider. A great opportunity to get something from this game, unless we're set up not to lose again.
  13. Aye................ There was an old man called Ricky He is a troll. I thanks you.
  14. I'd like to see more of this lad.
  15. Yesterday
  16. You certainly can. I tend to turn them down. Much prefer paying my own way instead of being beholden to someone for a pawltry sum of money.
  17. Nesbitt is a Shankland type. Touted as very promising at a young age and struggled to live up to it. Had to drop a couple of levels to get his rhythm. Dunfermline have him tied to two or three years and they would be looking for middle six figures I'd imagine. With clubs bigger than us surely sniffing about him if he became available, we've no chance
  18. Back into home territory. Hey.. An idea.. Why not post in as many threads as possible, add betting suggestions, slag others. That could be successful. Works from the Arbroath Man with no TV remote when the soaps are on and she who must has the remote.
  19. https://www.paisley.org.uk/2016/11/new-paisley-literary-magazine-aims-put-local-poetry-map/ Does anyone have any Paisley or St Mirren Poems to share?
