    I have been working in Northern Ireland this week . Today I was working North of Antrim up to Ballymoney ,at lunch time I dropped into a wee place called Bellaghy for a bite to eat . The guy serving me , hearing the accent enquired where I was from , when I said Paisley , next question was which team ... as usual ! When I said Saints, he looked surprised. “pop your head into that office over there and tell them who you support “ Turns out the guy in the office is an organiser for the Belfast youth football group who visited us a couple of weeks back , he was singing the clubs praises , said the youngsters were given the whole package and treated like kings . Particularly singled out TF for praise saying he had the young uns captivated with his stories and enthusiasm. The lads have asked if they can wear .St.Mirren strips next season !! At times it is easy to become disillusioned with our club and sometimes things seem bleak , but it’s good to remind ourselves we can occasionally do things right Well done to all involved.

    What a nasty wee forum we have tonight. Some real and unwarranted vitriol alongside an unhealthy display of pack behaviour. Beating Livi is one of the hardest tasks in this league beating them when their manager has clearly set them out for a draw or to steal a win is actually impressive given where we were a month ago, however we did it. Well done saints and the fans who cheered them on.

    Doesn’t matter what happened last season. They weren’t better. We created more chances. We scored they didn’t. They weren’t fitter. We kept going until the end and there wasn’t one single player that wasn’t driving us forward. They hoofed it up the park all day long. We arguably played better football in the last 20 mins of the first half once we got a measure of the conditions. Their brand of football if f**king painful to watch. That certainly hasn’t changed since last year. Thankfully they got what they deserved. We’ve now had three solid performances in a row that have given us a real chance of staying up. Just enjoy it for f**k sake.

    Rubbish. Both teams didn't have a good performance today. But to say Livingston outplayed us is a fabrication. I'm interested to know where your parameters are for being outplayed. It certainly want in terms of chances created or clarity of chances. They missed a first half sitter and erm.... That was it. This isn't a defence of the St. Mirren performance as it was ugly a win as you'll see (and how we yearned to grind out ugly wins when getting rolled over), it's taking issue with the appraisal that Livingston were all over us. Which they weren't. They were shite. Oh and if this is relegation form sign me up... I'll take 5 points from every three games from now til the end of the season please.

    Out played us, really? They chose to take wind advantage in the first half they couldn’t capitalise on it. We weathered it ok(excuse the pun). Relegation form, I’ll take 3 points relegation form every week.

    Just back in from the pub and had a quick glance at this thread?? So rather than comment on what has been said before.. I saw a very determined Saints team that matched the horrible way that the opposition play football. We were certainly not free flowing but in our situation and with that weather could we expect anything different? I also saw our "defensive" midfielder run 60-70 yards, in the last few minutes of the game, to get on the rebound of a tremendous run and shot by Simeon and get his reward. I have no idea how he scored as I was too busy looking for the linesman putting his flag up for offside (the St. Mirren fan in me!) I then found myself running down steps in the main stand to pass on my regards to the Livingston manager ( the wee one not the big one). After waiting to clap the team off the pitch, I was leaving the ground and looked across to W7 and found there was still a band of fans singing a song that I have no idea what it was. Glad to see there are people still up for the fight and not point scoring on here!

    I genuinely don’t understand this point of view. We’re playing a team that’s 20 points or so ahead of us, has a solid defence and we’re trying to play in the midst of a gale force wind and driving rain. We did more with the ball than they did and got the goal our efforts and persistence deserved. I’d take another 5 or 6 like it between now and the end of the season.

    Funny how we all see the game so differently. I thought our shape and organisation was excellent last night. We sat in and conceded possession and pretty effectively dealt with a good Killie side. Set up for the counter attack and we got a decent number of chances. The one with Jackson is the one you're waiting for - and then we had a glorious chance for an equaliser with the ball across goal in injury time. We played a very limited game - but that's where we're at as a team. 9 teams in this league are considerably better than us so we need to adapt to try and get results. I wouldn't say we specifically set up for a point - I think the setup suited our limited attacking capabilities looking for counter attacks. The change in formation has made us much more compact. We've tried different approaches. We've pressed games hard in the first half on a few occasions and ran out of steam in the 2nd half. We have a midfield that doesn't match the quality of much of most opposition and it inhibits us from supporting the attack. Overall we aren't a good enough outfit to attack effectively as a team so counter attacking is arguably a fair approach to opening up our opposition. I think Jackson gets a bit of a rough ride from many - he has a good work rate and touch but just not clinical enough. In the market we're in, it's not so easy to find! I hadn't seen much encouraging about Nazon but he did well when he came on last night. Overall, disappointing not to get a point but we're still in with a chance. It might be absolutely dreadful to watch for the entirety of this season but we're still in touching distance for now and have to hope we can pull off the necessary results - particularly in the games vs Accies and Dundee. I'm sure the fans will be right behind us for the run in. COYS!!

    Craig Samson hall of fame

    Winning the semi final in 2013 was in some ways sweeter than winning the final because we beat Celtic fair and square, Samson was a huge part of that. For that reason alone he'll be a St Mirren legend for me, we waited 26 years to win a national cup and it gave us all great memories that will last the rest of our lives.

    It's funny how out of touch this place has become with the St Mirren fans I see and hear after every game. After the match all I saw was smiling, happy fans. Everyone I spoke to was delighted with the win and the way the team dug it out. Everyone agreed we deserved to win (because we did). Then you come on here and within minutes of the game ending the team and manager are being slated. No wonder there are fewer and fewer people posting on here.

    I'm struggling to work out what Ricky's done that's so wrong, how dare he start a thread about our next game... Seriously do you sit and wait for a Ricky post so you can dissect it and try and make a cnut out of him while hoping to get a couple of likes from you're usual suspects...............You lead a sad life WDWB... As for the game, anything other than a defeat will be a good result.. Sadly work dictates that I wont be there..

    Apparently Andrew Dallas awarded St.Johnstone two penalties whilst inspecting the pitch. One for the snow falling "in a dangerous manner" and one for a seagull that slipped in a patch of snow. He did ask the seagull if it had dived. He took it's non reply to mean that it didn't. Penalties to be taken at the start of the rescheduled fixture.

    100% this. For the second match in a row two sides had to cope with difficult / farcical weather conditions making football almost impossible. IMO every single St Mirren player was competitive. Committed, determined, fighting for the jersey. Compare that to so many gutless, spineless, submissive performances we watched from our "pre-January window" team. It's day and night now. I'm also gutted for those guys last night. Despite the late boot in the stones last night I'm more positive than ever that we have a great chance of escaping the dreaded drop if Kearney's players display the same level of commitment in every fixture from now until the end of the season..

    I know a lot of people use this forum just to blow off some steam after a defeat, but some of you need to get a grip. What did you think you were signing up to when you started supporting St Mirren? Treble trebles and trips to Paris and Barcelona? We didn't play particularly well, but it wasn't dire either. Killie are a decent team, we had a fairly good game plan and with better finishing, it would have worked. On to Perth we go, it's all to play for.

    St Mirren v the West Lothian criminals

    The celebration of the goal was FANtastic,the noise was deafening.One minute we're sitting getting soaked,in the Main Stand,the next minute an earthquake wouldn't have bothered us. A draw would probably have been a fair result........which makes the win even better. The look on the faces of the Livy mob as they trooped off made it the perfect day. Met Sephiroth at half time(some of the older forum members will remember him.Long black,leather coat) and he was telling me he's getting married in June.Still looks the same...........except for the 2 stone he has put on. Had to go home to get changed after the game.Last time I seen rain like that at the fitba was the B+Q Cup Final v Falkirk.

    Poll: When Will Oran Match Alan?

    I remember when Fergie was 1 job away from the boot at Man U. He had a huge job to do when he got there and was accorded the time and backing. What he didn't do however was spunk all the money he was given on inferior players and lose the players respect. Oran IMO has to be given time to sort out the mess left by previous managers. He will come good.

    Brexit Negotiations

    Firstly, there is no EU Superstate. Secondly, the spivs behind Brexit are indeed driving the country to "closer ties" to the US - i.e removal of consumer protections provided by the EU, and the destruction of the NHS to force the miserable American private health model on us. Going to deliver excellent dividends for Rees Mogg and his chums. It is a miserable future, but one that can be avoided by Scotland taking independence, protecting our rights, and rejoining the most successful trading bloc in the world.

    Draw would’ve been a good, if a bit of a lucky result tonight. We were a few minutes from a hard earned point and with a bit of luck could have even stolen a win with the chances in the last 10 minutes. Was a wee chance for us tonight, but Killie were the better team, so lick wounds and move on to Perth. We’re miles better than we were a couple of months ago, but whether it’s good enough to survive, who knows. We’re far from relegated yet, even if it feels like it tonight.

    Fairly balanced assessment by the BBC of our chances of avoiding relegation - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47486225 Starting with tonight's game we at least have a glimmer of hope where there was none before. It will be up to our midfield to battle for possession and create chances - something which they did not generally excel at against Livingston. We have the opportunity tonight to come off the bottom place but other factors will come into play - ie. good fortune, refereeing decisions, injuries and tactics. The least we supporters can do for the cause is to turn up in large numbers and get behind the team.

    It's bloody awful we have players returning the middle of next week from international games. Then we have 2 massive games in 3 days. But then again if you are Celtic you can go away for friendly matches and rearrange league games. The club need to stand up and back our manager who does not want the game played on the 27th of March.

    What is all this utter bollocks about us playing for a draw. Complete nonsense. There is a world of difference between playing for a draw and simply being utterly incompetent in the final third. Killie might have had more possession than us, but we had 11 attempts fo their 15 and arguably (other than the one that hit the post) we had better chances. Jackson’s two for a start were better than anything else they had. We were just useless at converting our chances.

    The strength of our squad now and the vastly improved mentality are making such a difference. Clean sheet cause we kept Livi at bay. Conditions woeful, but we held in there and finally took a chance - we had a few in the 1st half that could have made it a whole lot better - but the win is absolutely what matters... Well Done OK and everyone involved in today's win. Well done to the paying fans (season ticket or otherwise) it was a howler weather wise, but at least we go home with a positive result !! Game on in the survival battle . . .

    Tansey Banned

    Ridiculous situation. The referee saw the tackle and deemed it a yellow card. If he thought it was a red then Tansey would have been suspended for one game. Now someone else offers Tansey a two match ban? WTF? You don't get a 2 match ban if sent off during a game. The compliance officer should be looking at situations the ref missed - not situations that the ref saw and acted upon.

    Top league is where we want to be, but we need to earn it. Dig, organisation and composure, backed by a positive rowdy Saints support should be enough to continue our turnaround with 3 points. As much about momentum as points today. Fingers crossed. COYS!!!!!
