    So very sad to read of the sudden passing of Steve Rowan last week. Steve of course was the producer behind the excellent "Love Street The Movie" DVD that was published to celebrate our time at the old stadium. The follow on piece to that film, featuring the last ever game at Love Street and Steve interviewing supporters and ex-players is on YouTube but the actual film itself is not. So, inspired by my good friend @Yflab and for everyone to enjoy who has not seen it, here is the full film. Rest in peace Steve.

    Chancer????? To me he is showing great initiative and drive. He regularly writes about all aspects of Scottish football far more incisively and intelligently than Tom English who is the Chief Sports writer on BBC Scotland. His video calls with players at home are insightful. But most of all his content is not about the Old Firm - unheard of in Scottish media. But he is only 19 with an HND so he must be shite.

    Aberdeen v St Mirren Friday 2nd Oct

    I've calmed down a wee bit now. Still mad at JG for not using the subs but will wait to hear what he says. There's something not quite right at the club regardless of opinions on whether Magennis is good/ fit enough. Was JG given assurances Kyle would be kept? If so, then the board are stitching him up. Last ten years or so we haven't been able to kick on. Why not? Killie, fakes and Motherwell are light years ahead of us. Why? Even the change of board hasn't progressed us. What's going on with the Kibble? Who's calling the shots? I am currently paying money in to the club via SMISA every month on top of my season ticket and I have no idea whats going on. Shambles.

    That church is something I'm quietly proud of! After closing as a church it went the usual way of being a furniture store / odds and sods salesroom, and slowly but surely it started to really deteriorate as a building. It was a nice Grade 2 listed building, but that made no difference to the owners. Having been dragged up in Paisley, but now working in the big smoke (of Glasgow), I was well aware that grants were available through a government funded body and they would support development of any building if you could show that benefit would come from the investment. I had the idea of creating three floors of flats with an atrium in the middle. The big problem were the long windows on each side of the building, and how would you introduce a floor detail for the middle level of flats. The Paisley Planners weren't at all enthusiastic and basically said we couldn't touch the building, or all we could create were two levels of residential, which didn't financially work. So I asked for Historic Scotland to become involved and one of their people came to Paisley and we turned up at the building with the Paisley Planner in tow. She was fully expecting to be backed up by Historic Scotland, but they backed our idea to the hilt and said that this was one of the best solutions they had seen for a building of this type. So the bottom line was that we carried out the development and I can actually say, I saved the building. The great advantage that it had was no burial ground around it and internally it wasn't too ecclesiastical so not that difficult to get the right look. I hope if any members of the forum live, or has lived here it would be good to hear what they thought of it. I haven't been in the building for a long number of years. The development was completed around 1988.

    Welcome Lee Erwin

    I think its unfair to be writing off Erwins St Mirren career after a handful of games, in which he's already scored. Sure, he had a poor game the other night but that shouldn't define him. Give him time to at least settle in first.

    The club is an embarrassment. I’m so disappointed in some of the things that are happening at present. As a fan today I thought we might get a wee bit of ambition like United signing the lad mcnulty. Just something to soften the blow of our captain being sold for peanuts. It’s always the same tho and we are a poorly run club that has made a fool of itself twice in the past week with ridiculous statements. Anyhow if you look at the squad it’s not strong enough and the midfield is an area we don’t have enough depth. Sure Cammy and Ethan played well on Friday but will they have the physical and mental strength to go a whole season. I suspect not and McAllister has been nowhere near good enough whilst Foley and Durmus look a shadow of themselves. Throw in MCGrath who is tidy but has no end product. It’s a shame and also the lack of a goal threat now glaringly obvious. Yes I know it’s a moan and I know that people may well say I’m wrong but It looks like a squad that’s going down. Kenny McLean was sold and never replaced and this looks like the same. Same old saints desperate to get a hundred grand or so for a player who might have made a difference in the relegation fight. i want to be angry but I’m actually just really fed up with this and fed up in general at the minute. If the board Think they can shout about top six with this squad they’re off their head. This team has the stench of relegation all over it.

    It's no coincidence that we always, always play better without him in the side. He should be gone 1st of January as it's painful to watch him in terms of position, contribution, passing range, passing choice. Even if he was poor at all of those but good at breaking up play, I'd get it but his tackling isn't up to par either. It's also a really sad story that is unfolding in front of us with Kyle McAllister. The lad broke into a truly awful side and looked like a bit of a shining star. Pacy, direct, very skilful and annoyed full backs and he get a deserved move south out of it. When he came back on loan, whilst he wasn't exactly consistent under Kearney but he chipped in with massive performances at vital times and for that, he was a player that was essential to keep. Since returning full time though, the decline in the lad has been painful to watch, especially as he's still very young indeed. I don't know if injuries have taken their toll or if it's the associated mental factors that come with those injuries that are at play but there is clearly just something not there. I watched him yesterday against the QotS full back, like we've done for almost 18 months now and when he picks the ball up, it's never in a good area, he always seems to be too deep, too high, too far away from the ball and so he constantly gives himself far too much to do. When he does have possession, he has it in his head that he can go past players but he never successfully does, I counted about half a dozen times yesterday that he ran straight into the full-back. Rarely, if ever do you see him doing that usual winger trait of give and go. Pass inside and make the full back work off the ball, drag him out of position, even if you don't get the ball, you might open up a bit of space for someone else. That just doesn't happen. Whether he's been told not to do that or what I don't know. But something has just seemed 'off' with him for a long time and it's terrible to see as when we brought him back on a 3 year deal, I, like most fans were chuffed. Yeah we understood the injury issues and he'd have to be managed carefully but if he was available for 25 games a season, that would be brilliant compared to not having him. Compare him to a guy in that same midfield position as him on the opposite team - Aidan Fitzpatrick. I said a few months ago when Thorvaldsson was coming that I was shocked if we were looking at a right mid that we didn't go for Fitzpatrick, also a Norwich player. The lad yesterday was fast, direct, LOVED running at our defence, constantly cutting inside and he got one goal from it and really should have had another in the 2nd half. Nothing I saw of him yesterday changed my opinion that he'd have improved our squad and I was shocked when QotS got him. I'm at stage where I'm not even pissed off at Kyle anymore like I was last season, I'm just concerned that someone so clearly talented has lost it for whatever reason - you don't just become a bad footballer overnight. I genuinely hope we see the best of Kyle in a Saints shirt but right now, that seems a million miles away.

    I don't like picking on individual players , but for the life of me , I can't understand how Sheron gets a jersey. The game just seems to bypass him , wherever he's supposed to be playing. I get that managers tend to favour their own signings , but surely it must be as obvious to JG , as it is to everyone else , that he is not hacking it at this level !

    Coronavirus

    Sadly a twenty a day smoking habit would take care of that quite easily. The last 4 years I’ve been volunteering at the local Foodbank and the numbers dependent on it increase each year. It’s quite an eye opener. There are people who are trying to work, but are on zero hours contracts. People on minimum wage who may have historic debt issues, lost their jobs/home/rent arrears, etc that they are trying to resolve or single parents who get no support from the other half. The introduction of Universal Credit just compounds the problem imho. Sadly the foodbank service is open to abuse by a minority. I won’t go into details as it pisses me off no end that these people can take advantage of the generosity of others for their own selfish means. The foodbank volunteers and AdviceWorks try to help where they can, but many people are reluctant to make any changes and so the cycle continues from father to son, mother to daughter. I’ve met some wonderful people at the foodbank. I, Daniel Blake by Ken Loach is a well made movie on the subject of the benefits system, foodbanks and how unforeseen circumstances can change your life forever.

    Absolutely! Sorry for the long rant that follows. Feel free to ignore what I’m about to say as it’s from the heart. From personal experience I’ve been in the unfortunate situation of requiring the NHS to save my life on two occasions. The last time I was on life support for 3 weeks and I survived despite the odds being massively against me even staying alive, never mind walking, talking or wiping my own arse. Things we take for granted which I had to relearn over weeks and months. I only survived because of the dedicated care I received from all sorts of staff from multiple hospitals, ambulance crew, porters, cleaners, catering, nurses and consultants. The level of nursing support you receive in ICU is unbelievable. Dedicated nurse 24/7. Many of the staff that make the NHS function are on low wage and don’t see working at the NHS as a “career choice” but a vocation in life. They entered the NHS because they want to help people. Working in those ICU wards demands great levels of concentration and well as huge mental strength. The statistics of surviving life support make grim reading. I can’t imagine what it must feel like to try to save someone’s life, but you watch them die right in front of you. However the joy of watching someone you have cared for recover and go onto make a recovery must be a tremendous high. I know I’m one of the lucky ones. It’s not without risk. I had more lines going into me than 20 Greenock junkies. My lungs are permanently scarred and I get frequent infections. I’m basically f**ked if I get Covid-19. But I try and get on with life and don’t agree with the way that this pandemic has been handled in this country. In addition my brain was starved of oxygen and left permanently damaged as even though I was on life support my lungs had mostly given up and could not transfer the oxygen required to function. Fun fact. The brain is the vital organ in the body that consumes the most oxygen (20%). Not many people know that. Sadly I lost my career that was my vocation in life as even though I went back to work within 3 months I could not maintain the level of concentration and stamina required to do the job to the standard I set myself. I stuck at it as best I could for a number of years before it took its toll on me and my family. In the end my wife and I made the decision for me to get out before it killed me. My boss used to say to me that a yflaB operating at 50% capacity was worth more than two guys at 100%. Nice compliment but the impact of my brain injury and the lung damage made it extremely hard for me to function and perform at the level required. I don’t write this post easily as it is very personal and it hurts me ever day that I can’t still do the job I loved. I suffer from depression as a result which is a real cnut as I’m on medication for life. I hope that anyone who slags off the NHS never has to deal with the trauma that my family and I have been through. As I said earlier I’m f**king lucky. I lived to tell the tale and lead a decent life. There are people in far harder situations than you or I. But I hope that people consider the type of people who enter the NHS. They put the care of their patients ahead of themselves. Those people support one of the most remarkable and life changing organisations in the UK that at a number of stages in our life we will come to depend on for their experience, knowledge and caring to live the best life we possibly can. sorry for the long post...

    Regardless of how disappointing much of our play is this season there is no way we should get rid of Jim. I have no doubt he is giving it 100% and is St Mirren minded. We have had too many managers in recent years and there are still a load of imposters out there looking for work.We need to stick with it and hope that Jim has enough about him to keep us in the top flight and give us a good cup run.

    Correct. The idea that Magennis wanted to stay is laughable. 5 year deal at Hibs to stay at SMFC, do me a favour. So the club have done the right thing. Take the money, get thro COVID and see if there is enough for Jan window. By Jan we will also know if Goodwin is cutting it and probably well before. Goodwin has to get on with it. The squad showed on Friday evening what it can do and its his job to get that level of performance and commitment from now on. SMFC made a silly statement to placate a number of moron fans when they should have held their dignity and let Magennis go with grace.

    Welcome to the club Daniel! Hopefully see a left back in, was hoping for some creativity in midfield but times running out. Also, some of the comments on this post are embarrassing, facebook is much worse, but ffs what is going on😂 people moaning we’ve sold our captain and signed defensive cover, we where always going to sign cover regardless if Kyle went or not, it’s a position we’ve been crying out for. Put the daggers down😂. It’s been a rollercoaster of a day but we should be backing a signing not slaughtering it before we’ve seen the boy kick a ball!

    Kyle Magennis

    How hard was it to say something like: One of the big selling points to prospective players coming to St Mirren is that we can offer them a real chance at first team football and if they succeed we will not stand in their way if they want to move onto bigger clubs. That is part and parcel of our club ethos and our value system and we are delighted to see many former players move onto the English Premiership and the Scottish national side. Whilst we are sorry to see Kyle go despite our best efforts to keep him at the club, we fully expect him to follow in those footsteps and will follow his career as he progresses. We thank him for dedicating so many years of his life to this club and wish him well on the next step of his career. That sort of statement followed by perhaps a brief video or story f his highlights and goals at St Mirren would have shown the sort of class the boy deserves to be shown IMO. But we have a seemingly over-emotional, petulant nugget in charge of these statements.

    Sorry @HSS I meant too add a photo. I got this crush barrier after the “Making the Stand” fund raising lottery for the when a group of us who met on the old Saints Online Guestbook decided to help raise money with the generosity of our home support. I was still working down south at the time, so I borrowed my mates estate car to transport it down to middle England. It never felt right to concrete it in England. It endured 3 house moves in 6 years over hundreds of miles before its final resting place in Renfrewshire. It is that treasured by me that it was always the first item in the removal van. 😂😂 And yes I know it needs a fresh coat of paint - as does the fence. Plus my raised beds need some clearing out for the winter months. I get enough nagging from the wife without any from you guys and gals. Just think how many goals it witnessed during its time at Love St - personal favourite at that end of the ground was Ian Scanlon’s goal against Celtic in the 4-2 victory.

    Wonder were the posters are that were slating the boy when he came into the team as a full back. Debut V Rangers. I've seen the boy since he was 15. Always a top midfielder. I bet anybody anything GLS is wondering how much he can sell him for. I was lucky enough to be ask to present his YPOTY award 2 seasons ago. And he's a lovely young man. TOP PLAYER

    3 at the back doesn't work. It worked vs The Sheep but has been horribly exploited vs two pish teams. Goodwin seems to have no idea how to set us up. Very worrying. Sheron is worse than hopeless. Get him tae feck, get 4 at the back, build the midfield around Cammy and Ethan. Probably Foley holding mid if he sobers up and McGrath at the top end. Up top is tombola time. Either 2 up or 1 up with one floating. Personel pose problems here. I want to like Erwin but he seems out of shape and out of sorts. Big John has feet made of lego and gets smaller when he jumps but has a fair scoring record. Im hoping the menace when fit plays off a slimmer fit Erwin tbh, or let's get a decent out of contract forward. Such dilemmas....

    OK ill bite. So far there have already been 3.5 million people left with no income or support due to covid and job losses. It may be a political decision, and maybe it shouldn't be that way but the reality is, that's what's happening. "some pain" in hospitality. I'm guessing you don't work in hospitality. There's currently more than some pain in the industry and it's getting worse by the day. Any gains the industry has made in working conditions over the past years will be absolutely gone when any normality comes back as people will be absolutely desperate for work and will work for peanuts just to pay a gas bill. People are being shafted already and the peak of unemployment and businesses closing hasn't hit yet. The set back will take years to fix in a best case scenario

    I actually feel more confident after that display. Up until last night I hated the way the team were set up sitting too deep; never getting support to the front players and no enegy in midfield. Last night we improved on all of that. The midfield were excellent and peronally I would be more angry if it was Cammy that was moving to Hibs. Hopefully Jim learned a lot from last night. Strikers are still a real problem though. Dennis may be the answer or else we sign someone else before the window closes.
