    Disappointing

    When was the last time you were REALLY impressed during a transfer window? For me it was when we signed Gary Teale. I recall receiving a thing called a text message on my mobile telephone from a fellow Buddie. Now as a rule I do not tend to receive many text messages so I was surprised when my phone did this "beep beep" sound along with a little shoogle. So I removed my mobile telephone from my lower right jerkin pocket and read the happy, happy news that a player of real quality and standing within the game had signed for my beloved team. I also had a similar, although less surprised moment, when Thommo of the hawk signed for us. Anyway I recall the real deep felt joy that day when I learned that my wee club had signed Gary Teale. Now, we have to be honest. Some will slap the happy tambourine whenever we sign a new player and proclaim things like "great piece of business", but the fact is that the overwhelming majority of signings our club make our largely unheard of by the common Buddie prior to the news of the "great signing" appearing on the twitters. Richard Tait was a name I vaguely recognised as was Jak Alnwick. Guys like McGrath, Morias, Obika and Sheron could well turn out to be more super that a can of strong Tennant's (Obika already has) but you don't get that child like excitement when learning the news that a sought after Scottish internationally recognised footballing craftsmen has chosen your club over the rest. What a signing Gary Teale turned out to be. The sight of Thommo laying the ball off, Teale picking it up and cutting in from the right as he bore down on a certain (now championship) teams goalkeep, the excitement building as the Teale meister shyed away from personal glory but unselfishly squared the ball to yon Esmael Goncalves and the relief/joy/hope as the ball caused a bulbous swell in the back off the net to bring us of the canvas and right back into a cup final. A cup final that we would go onto win, due in no small measure to the quality of the Gary Teale (and his team mates). I could of course expand and discuss the Teale meister's huge contribution in the semi final win over the Sellick, I could but I won't as I feel the point has been made, the point has been made indeed.

    Love this month's interview with Danny Lennon. A true gentleman and rightly, a Saints legend. Found it interesting that he credited two of his background staff for our cup semifinal win against Celtic... Austin MacPhee and Steven Turnbull. Judas the assistant has never been publicly criticised but the snake deserves that much at least. Tommy Craig and the senior players he recruited caused not only Danny Lennon's downfall at Saints... but our club's downfall into the wilderness years. Hall of Fame Heroes is the article title. That title is totally deserved by Danny Lennon. RESPECT AND GRATITUDE!

    The 3 Monthly Spend

    This month we are proposing something a bit different for members to consider. We are putting up just one option for you to vote on but we are proposing using both this spend and the October spend in one go. The project we are proposing is to provide general financial support to the St Mirren youth academy. The effects of Covid-19 have impacted football in many ways with nearly every club forced into making cost savings to try to offset the loss of revenue. Some clubs have chosen to reduce or mothball their academies but we at SMISA believe a strong, thriving youth academy is vital to St Mirren’s present and future. In a previous survey of SMISA members, you also indicated that supporting youth development ought to be the priority for the £2 spend sums. With the club working towards attaining elite status within the Scottish FA’s Project Brave structure, this fund would enable the academy to continue operating at full strength and to also purchase some much-needed training equipment. To that end we are proposing using the £7400 in the July pot now, and then in October the sum available, (likely to be similar) to help head of youth Allan McManus and his team at Ralston. Committing two pots in one go will give the academy team a bit more certainty over budgets and the ability to plan ahead during a time of financial uncertainty. Should the project not receive majority backing the sums will remain in the pot for possible use at a future date. Voting via Very Connect at https://tinyurl.com/yd6j8qow will be open until July 17. If you have any questions about this or anything else please get in touch via [email protected] Regards, The SMISA committee

    Prior to being The Clubhouse, that unit was an Indian restaurant called the Shirin Mahal. I was in there with a forum member, to spare his blushes lets call him Bud the B...no, that's too obvious, B the Baker...anyway after a few ales we had a curry but my companion was pished and, quite skilfully it has to be said, vomited his curry back onto his plate. Soon after the waiter came over, looked at the full plate and said "are you not hungry?"

    Just seen that. Another defender. Good luck to the young man. Was hoping Akin Famewo would be back. Thought he and McCarthy had a good partnership. We need another striker as back up to Obika. But I guess Gys and Goody have that in hand. Coys Goodwin confirming he's brought him in as a holding mid who can provide backup the the centre halves. So we've definitely still in the market for a centre back or two.

    Scottish Football Now Decomposing

    Great article by Bill Leckie. He’s (Craig Gordon) also bang on when he expresses his dismay that Scottish football hasn’t been able to sort itself out despite its problems not meaning a toss compared to what’s going on in the wider world. Without wishing to pick an argument with one of the game’s good guys, though, I have to say that, if he’s searching for a reason why it’s all gone so pear-shaped, it’s right under his nose; right there in his boyhood club’s boardroom. Hearts are the ones who finished bottom of the table despite spending top-three money on players. Hearts are the ones who panicked and demanded those players take pay cuts before the government even had the chance to introduce the furlough scheme. Hearts backed the wrong horse in the vote on ending the season early, then again on the vote calling for an independent probe into how that decision was reached. A reconstruction plan that would have saved their bacon fell on its backside, even though their own sugar-mummy Ann Budge chaired the committee who came up with it. They dragged United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers into their legal fight to have the final tables declared void, a situation that has left Raith fearing they’ll be unable to risk a six-figure legal bill and will simply be crossing their fingers that the decision goes their way. As if this wasn’t heavy-handed enough, Budge then nicked Robbie Neilson from Tannadice as her new manager — a hefty investment which, along with the deal to bring Gordon in from Celtic, is an almighty boot in the stones for every employee forced into a drop in wages when Budge pleaded poverty. I know Jambos fans will be sick of reading this, maybe even as sick as I am of writing it, but it has to be put on record that, despite dominating the headlines for pretty much all of these 115 locked-down days, their club have produced not one positive, winning idea. Good God, even when the hugely-generous James Anderson offered a donation of millions to make sure no clubs went down the pan, all Budge had to do was introduce him to Neil Doncaster and let them shake hands, but even then she managed to turn it into a fight. Like Rangers chairman Douglas Park before her, she’s read the room wrong time and again. She’s been fighting shadows, punching smoke. Plus, when she and her lawyers were throwing their weight around by plunging the plans of the three lower league winners into disarray, why didn’t they have the courage to claim that Celtic shouldn’t have been named Premiership champions? After all, if they’re actually saying relegation shouldn’t have counted, how can the title stand? Sorry, but there are more holes in Budge’s defence than . . . well, there were in her back four all last season, which really is saying something. And, for the umpteenth time, let me also say without fear of contradiction that, if they’d come off the bottom by winning at Paisley in the last, pivotal match before the shutters came down, we’d never have heard a peep from them. So, sure, there will be bad blood whatever happens now. But it’s Hearts who spilled it. Sure, it’ll forever be a crying shame that they, Partick Thistle and Stranraer were condemned to the drop when they still had enough games left to save themselves. But there are also countless businesses who might never open their doors again, tens of thousands of workers sweating over when they’ll earn a crust again. All Hearts were asked to do was suck up some rank bad luck and agree to kick a ball around in a different division come August — a division they’d be odds-on favourites to win. Whatever happens next in this sorry, sordid saga, the fact that they preferred to cause chaos for everyone else around them will stain those famous maroon shirts for a long time to come." https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/sport/football/5777365/craig-gordon-hearts-relegation-row-bill-leckie

    The incident will be investigated as deaths involving police officers are rightly required to be, it will be found to be justified and the officers involved will praised for their swift response as is only right.

    Ricky. Do you believe the Police were too heavy handed WRT how they dealt with the situation? One Policeman stabbed, multiple other victims so the police I imagine faced with a rampaging knife wielding maniac. Personally speaking, I believe they were totally justified in using deadly force. The officer would have had a split second decision to negate further threat. I remember the incident in London where the guy decked the alleged terrorist with a whale bone. The police moved in and shot the terrorist dead. Anyone carrying out such attacks should expect that same outcome. No doubt we’ll see protests about police over reaction/brutality etc. I sincerely hope we’re not going to follow the current trend from idiots calling for defunding the Police.

    Scottish Football Now Decomposing

    It was my old man who made the flag up. I was about 6 year old at the time of Italy 90. There's old photos somewhere of him and me with it. The name Billy the Fish though is right. Billy went to Italy with my dad quite late in the day but he was Celtic season ticket holder who my old man first met when working up in Aberdeen earlier on in 1990. The flag was ready to go to Italy long before Billy had agreed to. He can't remember who he gave the flag to at the end of the tournament but has a feeling it might have been big Ian Brown's boy, young Ian. He can't remember for certain though. Funny story, him and Billy were meant to be getting the supporters bus which was leaving in the middle of the night (again, think it was run by big Broony), both of them decided to have a bevvy in Billy's, fell asleep pished and when they woke up, realised they'd missed the bus by a couple of hours. As this was 1990 and no such thing as mobile phones, they couldn't tell anyone what had happened, so when they woke up, they just hoofed it down the airport, got a flight to London, a train to Dover then waited about at the ferry terminal for a couple of hours waiting on the passing bus to pick them up.

    No it isn't normal times, so why would you expect a normal result, if I owned Hearts we wouldn't have the cash to waste on a legal gamble, how is taking court action taking into account the best interests of Scottish football? They risk bankrupting the whole SPFL because they can't accept a democratic vote that doesn't suit them, all because of fiscal mismanagement and poor match results from that mismanagement.

    the sole point of a government is - to keep its people safe and well. So The Buffoon, with his Advisor Cum, certainly chose to miss the boat by lurching initially towards an unattainable "herd immunity". They are in the top spot. That is where the buck must stop, though he is already trying to pass that parcel with his every utterance.

    Anybody got any pics of Love st from the Greenock rd entrance? Walking along Murray st and seeing the entrance and entering from that end every home game was spine tingling going through the turnstile or (getting lifted over it) 😉 then climbing the stairs and seeing the stands and the pitch appear before your eyes was like taking a first breath.... absolutely glorious. And on another point was having a wee laugh actually a big laugh at myself with my previous not so much on here about the teams strips re the traditional black and white the penny dropped that during my hey day days of actually following the team from early 60's to 69 when we left to come to Nz most all the strips were mainly white with black trim or fine black pin stripes and wide white I think only once in that period since the cup win in 59 (when I was 5) did we actually wear the traditional kit 🤣 So long story short St Mirren will always be St Mirren whatever they wear we will follow.... we just may choose not buy the particular style that's worn 😂

    The strip is the most fundamental element of our identity. Players adorn what fans see as the major historic symbol of our community - the individuality of the town of Paisley and its people expressed through the game of football. Black and white stripes have always reflected that esprit de corps but unfortunately over the last number of years the club has failed to abide by our tradition with some obnoxious strip designs. We are forever being reminded that our club is based upon community values - which means interaction between people with shared beliefs and ideals but unfortunately, the club doesn't see it that way when it comes to the strip design. This is basic. The club should have followed community principles and simply asked the fans what design of strip they wanted.

    St Mirren Kit For Season 20/21

    I am guessing that most fans will know our players, even if they had no numbers on their shirts. The pundits, like Jim Spence have been complaining about our stripes for years because they can't recognise our players via numbers on stripes. Feck Jim Spence and the rest of the media. They are supposed to be professionals, so they should do their fecking homework on identifying players without looking at numbers. I bet the media could recognise instantly all Sevco and Celtic cnuts. FECKEM
