    Big Thanks And Well Done

    Yesterday before the match the players were all wearing T shirts that were in support of a local charity. The charity was set up after friends of mine lost there 5 year old son. Anyway I contacted Brian Caldwell to see about the players promoting the charity on behalf of everyone involved. Brian was more than happy and extremely helpful in organising this. Not only that, he also involved Norrie to get an article about the charity into the programme for yesterday. Add to this thE help we got yesterday at the ground from Roddie ( chap who deals with mascots etc) and he arranged to get a few photos with the players when they were coming off after the warm up. The help and generosity from the club was just incredible and the people involved with the charity can't believe how good the day went, and how well we were treated. I couldn't be any prouder to be a Buddie this weekend. The community saying we have as a club was extremely evident this weekend, even as the players gave the T shirts away and folk started putting them on, that showed me how successful St Mirren made this. Thanks again COYS

    There is already a lift in the main stand and (I think) space for 2 "hospitality" wheelchair Users. I believe that the CIC were looking favourably at a suggestion I made, to provide a full row along the front of the void for wheelchair users. I would hope that any future development of the void would include these facilities. In fact, maybe the Club could approach funders, ask for tenders, or even approach Kibble Works for this much needed facilty? It is 2013 after all...

    Would all those greetin about the game being called off still have been greetin if we'd been losing 2-0?Naw?I didn't think so. The Ref made the correct decision about the pitch.The only thing he did wrong was waiting half an hour to call it off. Can anybuddie remember the last time we had a game abandoned?

    Another away support in good voice and numbers like the one at Tynecastle please. This is a big game, especially after the shambles on Saturday. Let's pick up where we left off.

    What was the official attendance at the match. Why was it not given out on Saturday and why is it not stated in any of the media since ? As for Collum, he is a good ref and he made the correct decision on Saturday. Remember, he gave us the opportunity to get the pitch playable.

    Collum was good enough to wait till the rain went off before he abandoned the game. That meant I didn't get wet going to my car. All round good chap, I'd say.

    It was the right decision in the end and he didn't take 25 mins to make up his mind, he gave us 25 mins to get it playable and we failed. Unfortunately we were 2-0 up and cruising. Everyone is moaning about the ref, the same ref who gave us 2 penalties and send an opposing player of the last time he was in town. Take it on the chin and hope to feck we pump them next time round.

    Don't normally get too excited about this sort of situation but it seems to me that Collums only real error here was starting 2nd half - he could have looked at the pitch without any bouncing or passing. of the ball and maybe even got a forecast on when or if the rain might be easing soon. The reaction of some of the fans not so much at the match but on here, is,I think pretty shocking. Before anyone bangs on about costs of attending half a game, my son and I have a round trip of about 120 miles for a home match and will be there for the rearranged match even if it is played midweek I was at this match http://stmirrenprogrammes.co.uk/StMirren/STM_Match_Details.php?Season=1967&GameID=1123 and when it was abandoned people grumped a bit and went home (didn't even have the pub to go to at 4pm in those days to sit and moan about it!). The most it would be discussed after the Saturday would be at work on the Monday e.g. 'were you at the game' - 'aye it was pissing doon' - end of story. I wonder how many people wrote to the SFA or the referee to complain about that abandonment - let me think, possibly somewhere between none and zero. Time to move on and hope we can be 2-0 up at half time on a nice dry day (or even night) when it is replayed. COYS

    So Farewell Then James Traynor ....

    Dae ye think he might have learned not to bad mouth previous employers now he's signing on again??? I loved his quote following his appointment as HOOC (Head Of Orc Comms) "Word of advice gentlemen. From now on be very careful when talking or writing about this club. To paraphrase something said about another club, Rangers will not be treated less than others. And although there is no desire to pick fights, be assured that no one will attack Rangers with impunity." Aye... did ye Jim..? away and lie in yer pish

    Completely agree. Space should be made in the family stand with a ramp leading up. It's not as if we are ever close to capacity.

    Thistle look rank rotten, and this is them away from home where their form is supposedly better. Based on this and how we played on Saturday I'm looking forward to 3 points this weekend.

    That's a good idea - ideally it would need to be enclosed with appropriate access to protect them from the elements. A raised portacabin with large perspex windows at wheelchair level could be an option.

    Concerts at Hampden have a raised temporary platform in the park, couldn't we create one in the corner of the north and west stand where the setanta box used to be? I'm sure if something like that was covered then wheelchair users would be happy with this until something more permanent is in place?

    The players shouldn't make the decision. That's akin to saying to a boxing referee that he cant stop a fight unless the boxer says he doesn't want to continue.... The referee is the person who is best qualified to make a decision on whether the game should go ahead, as he is the person who knows the rules and is ultimately responsible for the welfare of the players. Whether you agree with the decision is another matter, but to suggest the players should be the ones who make it is folly. Besides it would have been a 50-50 split in any case....

    I'm not really upset about it being called off. I'm upset about the way he actually went about it. As i stated in a previous post he should have brought the team captains out and let them try and pass it too each other take there pro opinion and then called it off instead of taking about 30 minutes bouncing and kicking the ball like a 4 year old. But correct decision in the end

    The Referendum Thread

    As i've said already, the better together campaigners aren't selling anything. It's not up to as to make a case. Here's a thought however. A hypothetical thought, as a no vote is a cast iron certainty, but a thought none the less. If Scotland becomes independent we will continue to use the pound, but we will lose representation in the parliament which regulates the BoE, that sets the base rate of the pound. Basically we will be losing control of our own currency, we will be relying on a government in which we will have no representation looking after our own currency. Is this independence? If the value of the pound falls, there will be no one we can complain to, because we won't have representation in the parliament which makes vital decisions on how our currency is controlled. Scottish exports and businesses could fail on a matter that's completely out with the control of the Scottish government. Freedom? Anything but. A yes vote is a vote for taking away Scottish representation on the running and administration of the currency being used. Why would anyone want this? Why do yes campaigners want Scotland to have less fiscal autonomy than it has currently? This is one of a host of unanswered questions from the yes campaigners. This is one of a host of reasons that they're being humped in every relevant poll. This is one of a host of reasons that next years referendum won't even be close. 65%-35%

    After the thumping we got at Tannadice, the pressure was back on Danny and the team. They all stepped up to the challenge, and I have no doubts we would have taken the three points. A win would have taken us to 9th. As high as we have been all season, and in good form with 10 pts from 15. Travelling to Firhill with genuine optimism and looking up the table. Instead we remain 11th, the league table doesnt look any better and the pressure from Saturday's game just transfers over to the Partick game. You wait all season to dominate a match in such a manner...and then that happens. Gutting. And to top it all off, the road under the bridge on Murray Street had turned into a swimming pool.

    What should have happened is at half time someone should have taken a van to B+Q and filled it up with big squeegy brushes. Then we should have handed them out to volunteering fans instead of disinterested youth players. The pitch would have been clear in no time and we would have taken the 3 points!

    Imagine a club's pitch was so rutted sandy and churned up that players could easily turn ankles and risk career ending ligament damage. Player safety was such a concern that games were played with Motherwell's pitch in the condition with random sideways and flat bounces of the ball for a full season. Yesterday's call off was farcical Willie Collum's idea of how a ball would be played around in a normal fashion, never mind the fact that players were adjusting for rain and weighting their passes heavier, was just utterly bizarre. His efforts to play a ball at 4 yard pace and seeing it roll through 20 yards into the box were ridiculous and as for the hugely representative 2 foot high ball toss with backspin into the soggiest area and still seeing a first 2-3 foot bounce. I thought they were joking when the said it was off.

    Lecturers earning more than me? Really? It's not about a race to the bottom. I'm not worried about high wages in the public sector so long as they are earned. For example if one employee can implement a programme which sees tens of millions of pounds of saving with with very little impact on the service delivery then I'd be more than happy to see them paid a seven figure salary. Where I get annoyed is when public money is wasted on inefficient services.

    The Referendum Thread

    There is no "case" to be made at all. It's purely a vote on who you want making decisions affecting Scotland. Do you want Scots voted by Scots to do it or do you want the English doing it. Everything else is pure speculation and pish because it'll depend on who is elected. The SNP are planning to keep pretty much everything as it is which is sensible and the right thing to do. Stop trying to confuse what is essentially a very easy problem to understand.

    SPFL official called the game off - SPFL should meet costs of replay. That seems fairly simple to me. Why should the club which was wanting the game played be the one that pays for the replay? Ross County fans should certainly pay full price if their club pushed for a postponement. I'm sick of St Mirren 'doing the right thing' and getting nothing back for it.

    What a two faced bawbag Adams is. He was clearly at the fourth official whining his face off to get game stopped, so he goes out and says in papers 'let's have the Dutch system to see out a result' a what a load of pish. Facts are he saw an opportunity to get a 2-0 drubbing reversed and set back to 0-0 and he used the weakness of Collum to do so. St Mirren ought to request photographers shots of Adams conduct in the dug out and get them sent onto the SFA so he can get done for behaving like a fud. Collum should be sent to the juniors for his 'my only concern is the players' comment on radio. Supporters are life blood of football and we know he's a twonk but should be made to apologise for that.

    And so it was in the place of Paisley that the mighty St Mirren twice smote the pagans from the High Lands andrthe miracle that is successive home wins was about to come to pass. But the Lennon haters, seeing this, cried out in woe! What the f*ck? said the horde and, with wailing and gnashing of teeth, they called upon their God. And God heard them and, fearing to call down their bile and venom on Himself, He listened to their pleas. And He sent down a great flood, such as had not been seen since the days of Noah. And God saw the flood, and it was f*cking soaking. And the evil Gollum, seeing the flood, spake. Gie's ma baw! Ah'm gaun hame, sayeth the evil one. And having no other place to go, the players were received into the bosom of the dressing room, where they were garlanded with hot towels and bovril. And the Lennon haters were ajoy. They sang the praises of The Lord, and spake. We'll get rid o that wee b*stard yet! they sang. And The Lord looked down upon the crowd and thought What a bunch of moaning b*stards.

    What the feck are you on mate?. Instead of hiding under various aliases (Gary Blue, Saint Sid et al) and acting like a prize prat, at least provide evidence of my hypocracy and that I 'slagged off' Gus McPherson? Also, where was Gus McPherson mentioned in my post when the whole basis of my answer to Elvis was around his negativity and decision to stay away from matches on the basis that we are not winning regularly. I am not a knickerwetter and have supported this team since 1967 and have seen much worse Saints teams particularly the early 70s. While I am unhappy with the way the results have gone this season and where we are in the league, I am not prepared to slag the team or manager or share the wholly unacceptable negative attitude to the same extent as some on here demonstrate. It does not mean I am clap-happy but realistic enough to accept that we are and always have been a small club scraping around the bottom of the league with a small support and a small budget. Danny Lennon is our manager until such times as he is removed or leaves. Gus did a good job but in the end it was the BOD who removed him as change was required (in both their eyes and those of the majority of fans). I support my club through thick and thin and share the disappointment and rare success it brings. If we perform poorly then I will say so and vent my spleen but it hurts for one day and then I move onto the next game. Quite how that makes me a hypocrite but I do agree with you that my post was amazing
