    I'm not sure that would work- Jack Ross would just sign St Mirren players.

  2. 0-0 final score, what a performance, not a great watch but to a man the effort was immense. No real options on the bench, just the 11 who went out were asked to defend for almost the entire 90 minutes, and they did. (one late sub) Lyness and Shaughnessy probably deserve a mention but that performance required every man to do his bit. A point we never seen coming and very welcome after a worrying week. Also Goodwin deserves credit getting that from his players. Oh, elvis, dry yer eyes.

    Jay Henderson gets the plaudits. but I thought young Dylan Reid had a very disciplined game ,never out of place when required ,for a guy if only 16 it was a first class display of a holding midfielder.

    For a wee bit of perspective, every NZ player who made it big started out at clubs like Birkenhead. Chris Killen, Chris Wood, Winston Reid, Sarpreet Singh of Bayern Munich. Bill Tuiloma actually went from Birkenhead to Marseille and made it into their first team in 2015. He now now plays MLS football week in week out for Portland. f**king daft to suggest that we ought to write him off for being amateur. Almost every player who makes it to the full NZ national team goes this route of playing for a club until they are 18-22 and the best ones head for Europe. This lad has had that path delayed by a two year pandemic.

    Nothing wrong with us having a look at this lad- if he's not up to the standard, I don't imagine he'll be signed.

    The Vaccine

    I was aware, when getting my Astra Zeneca jags that it wasn’t as potent v Covid, as Pfizer and others, yet I went ahead, knowing it was FAR better than nothing: for me and society at large. when younger, I was aware - as were parents at the time - that many diseases that killed and maimed kids, were now being wiped out by vaccinations. My brother and I had everything going - FREE from our wonderful NHS. The current annual flu jag is always acknowledged to “maybe” not be the precise jag to curb each year’s wave of flu infection, yet it is dispensed, and taken up by grateful, intelligent recipients who have all, probably, suffered a flu in their younger years. You don’t need to be vulnerable, cause we ALL are… And the government only offers it free to the older generations, as there is a mitigation of costs…. there is no cut-off for covid jags, yet. An analogy: I guess that the hard-of-thinking would simply keep running between speeding trains instead of using the slightly safer railway bridges. We’re still finessing our already amazingly swift response to this new threat to humanity. Just like we have done with polio, Ebola, aids etc…. There is no magic answer.

  11. Got out of jail with 2-0 there. Some good defending and goalkeeping but our passing and lack of creativity was shocking. Sevco gave the ball away a few times in the second half in some really promising areas and we had numbers up, but we couldn’t even muster an effort at goal. Limping into the break, although Covid has crippled us. For all McGrath’s ability it’s definitely time to cash in. Hate to say it, but I think Flynn has run his course; brilliant player for us when he had his legs but injuries and age have caught up with him. Similar feeling to Stephen McGinn’s time with us coming to an end. Be interesting to see how this window pans out but we need to reload and recharge big time.

  17. Nice response - I got lifted over the turnstiles a good few times as well in those days! Gerry Baker was some finisher and I saw him score ten against "the Uni" in the cup which helped swell his goal stats spoken about in another recent topic. I left Scotland in 1962, so we're from the same era, but we were lucky to see some good players back then. One who really ought to get a mention of course is Tommy Gemmell - a one-club man and a really good player into the bargain. Good memories to have.

  19. On the positive side, that's two potential thumpings avoided. Damage limitation was always the primary aim. Was any one of us really looking forward to those two fixtures with optimism ? Given the circumstances, to come away with +1 point and only -2 goal difference is a pretty good outcome. As posted above, now we need to kick on and start targeting 3 points in every game.

  20. We need pace going forward whether out wide or through the middle. We don't have that. A battling ram forward to can hold up play or least attack crosses. Tanker does deliver a decent ball but our players apart from Big Joe disappear in the box

    Slainte! Merry Christmas. To those not with us. I'm celebrating by listening to Floyd's Wish You Were Here and having a wee snifter! Not morbid at all... It suits my mood perfectly. If I may impart one wee bit of advice! Got a "bucket list"? Change that this very minute! Make it a "f**kit list" If it is worth doing, do it. MAKE it happen! Don't wait! Live every day as if it is your last. One day, you will be right. Don't leave regrets. Leave memories! [emoji3590] Cheers! [emoji1634] Sent from my HD1913 using Tapatalk

    Coronavirus

    BinEK, I'm generally a fit and healthy guy who very rarely gets unwell never mind ill. I tested positive for Covid on Boxing Day and am still testing positive, on LFT, today. I don't know whether I have the Omicron Variant (I suspect I have) or another strain but I recognise every one of the symptoms you've listed. My wife tested positive on Christmas Day but got through it pretty quickly, I on the other hand have had a fairly rough time of it with the Back Pain, Body-aches and Night Sweats being the worst of it. Although not needing hospital treatment I don't ever remember having anything that has made me feel this unwell, I am fully vaccinated and can only imagine how bad it would be if I hadn't been. My whole attitude to Covid has been that I have stuck to whatever guidance/law we were given in the hope that I wouldn't catch Covid but more so that I wouldn't be responsible for giving it to anyone less able to cope with or fight the virus, my belief in that has only been reinforced by my experience of it. Anyone who has Covid and knowingly takes it out into the community needs their balls kicked.

    Or alternatively make them up yourselves. The salaries that you come up with will be equally reliable as the figures on these websites.

  31. GD -2 and 1 point from 2 games vs them while severely handicapped. Take it and move on. Nobody trained, all done their best. I will say Main is worse than a man short though. Utter imposter. Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk

  33. Any other manager in the league on this kind of run would be in trouble, Goodwin’s legend status buys him a bit of extra time but it can’t go on forever.

    St Mirren v Celtic

    Reading this morning that Goodie asked the board to boycott the game on Wednesday night on the grounds of player, staff and fan safety. Apparently the sanctions from the beaks would’ve been too damaging. Will be interesting to see if there is a fallout from Wednesday with more positive cases, not just in the Saints camp, but Celtic will be wary too. Unsure of the incubation period, but there must be a chance of more cases before the Sevco game. Still think it was a disgrace that rules were bent and we were forced to play. As usual, everything is slanted in favour of the big two and the rest of us can just suck it up. Sporting integrity??? The silver lining was the superb performance that the team pulled out under the circumstances. They were brilliant. I hope none of the team slept in for their paper rounds on Thursday.

    I have never been so delighted at a goalless draw. I really didn't expect it, and we could've nicked it at the end. Magnificent. A shoutout to seemingly the only other buddy at St. James' Station tonight on his way back to Glasgow. If you're reading this, thanks for the chat. I hope you got home safely,

  36. That feels as good as a win 🥇😎👍 The young lads played their part to the full. Hope they can recuperate and do it again Sunday Goody got the tactics spot on and the team performed exceptionally well. Dunne , Shaughnessy and Lyness were immense . im sorry - Main will simply not do . And finish on a positive …… GET IT RIGHT UP YE DONKEYCASTER 🖕f**king prick 😡

    Coronavirus

    Hendo, I'm no zealot and believe that people should be able to chose whether they vaccinate or not. That said I do think there should be restrictions on their options to mix socially and in the workplace in certain situations. I know two unvaccinated people who have recently caught the virus on an island off the west coast (where I'm originally from) where the incidence of Covid is fairly low....they are both pretty unwell and seem to have it far worse than me.....anecdotal maybe but there you are. Vaccinations, for the most part, don't eradicate virus's but certainly limit spread and in most cases (flu for example) limit the damage of the illness attached. This is pretty similar in my view. I don't think we should be parading anyone for anything and people will inadvertently carry and transmit Covid without knowing they have it or have passed it on. That is very different from someone, knowing they are positive, taking the virus out into the community

  46. Absolutely to be expected. Covid fears, Covid ravaged team, honking night, sectarian drivel and a humping on the cards. I was a die hard back in my Paisley days and I reckon I still would be if I lived there, but last night would’ve sorely tested my resolve. Don’t blame a single person who didn’t bother.

  48. Adversity- what a way to galvanise a team. We rode our luck at times, but Lyness immense, Dunne great, Henderson did well, whole team stuck to the task and made life really difficult for Celtic. Great bonus point. Probably too much to ask again at Ibrox, but l salute all those lads out there tonight. Proud… very proud.
