    Chairman's Update

    I do know Dave and i can tell you the amount of time and effort he and the other guys put into the St Mirren takeover was huge. He doesnt reply to posts on forums because he doesnt use forums but im certain if you emailed him then he would respond, he's approachable, friendly and was by far the outstanding candidate, he would have been Gordon's preferred candidate given the work they had done together at that point. All the guys involved in getting the takeover off the ground put in hundreds of hours at their own expense of time and family commitments but its easy to be critical of people from behind a computer, the opportunity is there for everyone to be more involved in Smisa if they want to and think they can do a better job.

    The corners could be filled in to accommodate catering, offices, reserved boxes or just a blank wall to keep the wind out and enclose the stadium for a better atmosphere. It does not have to be filled with seats.

    If he was preoccupied with the arrival of the baby and that was his priority, I would have thought a major priority for a father with a new baby was securing his future income. Obviously thought, the St. Mirren offer, wasn't good enough or he would have signed quicker than shouting "I changed the last nappy!"

    Can't say I'm too disappointed. Players nowadays believe that they hold all the cards. Despite his claims about his baby delaying his decision, I don't buy it. He's tried to be a bit cute by hedging his bets on other offers and dithered too long. He'll get another club without an issue but that's not the point, he can't moan about a contract offer being removed that was on the table for about 6 weeks.

    I think the problem is all the ITK punters were maybe getting snippets of info from our old management team, and that source has now gone. Time for someone to step up to the mark and befriend Jacko. Just don't take your wife along.

    Like most folk I :- 1) Don’t blame him for mulling over the deal in the first instance; and 2) Don’t blame him for holding off when Jack left. Most people wouldn’t take a job without having the first clue who your boss was going to be. However, having done so, he also had to accept a couple of things. 1) That you’re running the risk that the new manager might not fancy you and your left with no deal. 2) Having taken that calculated risk you don’t go greetin’ to the papers and on Twitter because your gamble failed. On balance I’d have been happy for Gavin to stay around as long as he wasn’t ripping the pish too much with his contract, but I can’t say I’m devastated that he’s gone.

    Do people seriously advocate spending thousands on enclosing the corner gaps just for aesthetics ? I would much prefer that money was spent doing the one and only thing that will improve atmosphere, that being putting a winning team on the park. I'd be furious if the club even contemplated spending my hard earned ST money on building needless brick walls. A replacement indoor facility where the dome is fair enough but we simply don't have the money to waste on aesthetic projects.

    I don't know David either, but can say that he absolutely answers emails as I've emailed him several times and got a reply every time. Maybe it's just you... Your little world must be so simple, believing everything that goes on inside you little head, going to imaginary dinner parties and sounding off on a forum to release your pent-up frustration with life.

    GS doesnt pick the Smisa member, Smisa pick the Smisa member. As for a yes man for GS, nothing could be further from the truth, we currently have a superb Smisa representative on the board who brings a lot to the table and was hugely instrumental in the buyout of the club from the old board. When his tenure is up we will be lucky to get someone else with as much drive and enthusiasm for the club but im confident the members will pick the right guy as we did at the last election.

    I agree with this. Gavin had plenty of time to accept the new offer before it was withdrawn. He might have shown a bit more commitment given that the club gave him a great chance to kickstart his career last season. I'd have liked to keep him and give him a shot at the premiership, but not with his present attitude. I'm sure with his record from last season he'll get another club, but I doubt that he'll be going to Sunderland. Good Luck, Gavin, and thanks for your efforts last season. In time, you might realise that you've made a bit of a mistake here.

    My understanding is and it was muted sometime ago is that eventually the Dome will be replaced with a permanent Building attached to the North Stand that will include a similar type pitch.The new structure is planned to display roof Airline Advertising similar to Brentford FC with the proposed Airline granted naming rights and providing Sponsorship.

    Exactly, surely your employment would be a major priority. I don't buy this 'stunned to be going, I was happy to sign' shite. If he was that happy he would have signed weeks ago, and not had his head turned by an agent.

    If we don't recruit better than Reilly, we will struggle. Reilly had a season in the Premiership and struggled with Hearts, then a season in the Championship and struggled with Dunfermline. He excelled with us playing in a system that suited him, with players around him that complimented him. It's debatable whether he would have been good enough for us this time round in the Premiership - as with most of our current squad - but the club put a value on his services and the player decided to take his chances on getting a better deal. I genuinely wish him all the best for the future, and thank him for his sterling efforts in stripes.

    Couldn't care less if Reilly has gone, he's not good enough for the Premiership, unfortunately neither are our other strikers ! Jack Ross pulled the wool over fans eyes with the "buying with a view to next season" in Jan. What he was buying for was to 100% get out the Championship and then rebuild for the Premiership this close season, hence the 9 new players he talked about. Impressed with Stubbs handling of Reilly, a good start. If Jack Ross signs Gavin Reilly for Sunderland he'll fail early as manager. Reilly is low level Div 2 in England at absolute best. Doubt there is a grain of truth in Ross being linked with ex SMFC players and all just press and internet bull.

    I’m ITK about one thing. I was chatting to GLS at the stadium when I was getting my car park pass, and he told me where he’s going on his summer holibobs this year. I’d rather be ITK about the ten incoming players I reckon we need, but it’s better than nothing, enjoy Saltcoats GLS.

    I'd rather have Mullen because he's a better footballer than Reilly. Agree with this they are two diffeent types of style. Gav only got 11 league goals , that played a big part in our season but it's not a great return for a team that won the league. Mullen is more phisical much better suitd for the premiership.

    No rumours or speculation on new players on this thread for a while, not even fake ones. Stubbs keeping his cards close to his chest or just nothing doing ? Surely not all the new signings will come from England where apparently we need to wait for the WC to end, must be a few from clubs up here. Are we interested in Halkett and Rooney, and if so, are we talking to them ? And if not, why not ? Love to think we're working on some deals.
