    There's always a car parking complaint. The names on shirts point was bizarre. Slightly more exciting was confirmation that McGinn money is paid in instalments so more still to come and that manager contracts have annual break clauses in them so Stubbs' pay off was just the remaining 9 months of first year's salary.

    A Wee Motivational Story Once upon a time we were shite. On the 18 September 2016 Alex Rae got the blame and was told to feck off. St Mirren continued on a downward spiral and the forums were split on the new guy as the team plummeted towards the third tier of Scottish Football for the first time in their History. The future looked bleaker than a day out with the seventh Cavalry at the Little Big Horn. Our scalp was claimed every week and Comparisons between Jack Ross and General Custer were arguable. From week 5 to week 30 of that season we were ensconced in the automatic relegation spot. Somehow, somewhere something changed into what was a magnificent season that magically unfolded in fairy tale proportions as the Great Escape became etched in the annuls of St Mirren History. One of my main memories of that season was a little ditty the W7 crew had been chanting which became synonymous with our championship win. “We’re on our way,” was certainly looking like being on our way to oblivion but it wasn’t until one day in the Pie queue at Palmerston when I heard them signing that we were on our way to the Premiership and I laughed like Feck. How we were going to get there, I certainly didn’t know and while they didn’t care, the chances of it happening any time soon looked remoter than Shull becoming a Full blooded, died in the wool old firm fan. There was fecking no chance. But the W7 mob had a goal. They knew where they wanted to be and thankfully JR had the same idea. The stupid fecking, nonsensical song being sung at a time when St Mirren looked to be disappearing into Football Oblivion became the St Mirren Championship winning anthem. Many of the Corporate motivation theorist actually teach that getting to where you want to be is not about how you get there but that the identification of what you want to achieve is the only thing that is important and the logistics are something we shouldn’t care about so the W7 lads and lasses where right up there with Modern Motivational thinking. Does anyone know a song about avoiding relegation and going on to win the Premiership and the Champions league? If Oran, the team, W7 and the rest of us can Unite in a song, we’ll be on our way. “People Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change The World, Are The Ones Who Do.”

    Right. Let’s get the fitba heid back on. Saturday was a big disappointment. Despite free drink all day and Rather good company the mood was somewhat dulled by another inept Saints performance and despite my normal positive outlook in life, that wee voice in my head was telling me “WE’RE GOING DOWN” It would appear the players in our team are simply not good enough for this league. Things are so bad we’re screaming for a young boy, who was mince in his first couple of games, to come back because he’s too big to audition for snow white and the seven dwarfs. Today I finally build up the interest to check on tonight’s match and find he’s injured, and we’re stuck with the midgets up front again. Someone pass the poison apple I can’t take being a Buddie any more. All around me on Saturday, Alan Stubbs, the Ball boys, Dougie Imrie, the referee, etc got the blame for our defeat but the truth was, we were shite. End of. Too naive, too wee and out our depth. I go tonight with little hope and no expectation of anything other than a heavy defeat and a shit load of Texts from my Hibbee mates telling me how shite we are. But in my mind, there is just a little whisper of hope that being a Bud is a funny old game and we pumped Hearts so let’s go for the Edinburgh double. Plus, it’s a three O’clock start for me and my Buds in Edinburgh. To those of us still in the fight. See you there tonight. SMTID

    Our new tactic should be to have Hammill in the middle, give him the ball and tell him to shoot on sight. Best chance we seen to have of scoring.

    That's a very decent point and whilst disappointing having lead twice, it's a point any of us would have taken, especially given our performances on the road this season. There's just little bit more steel and competitiveness creeping into this team. Yes there are shit days like Saturday, but that's us now taken something in 3 of our last 4 games.

    I thought that also, although there were a couple of morons near me, who had a go almost every time he touched the ball. I think they were expecting him to inspire us to a 4 -3 win. Really do despair about some of the total arseholes in our support.

    Thought that goal against hearts was good? This was better. He’s went and lobbed the keeper from pretty much the half way line.

    Good point, also not sure the Dundee result is a bad one for us - they are more able to invest than Hamilton in January, and despite the results against them, Accies really are a poor team. They might be the side we need to get ahead of. Just hope the injury to Magennis isn't serious. We've yet to take a point this season when he's not been in the side.

    Very good result. Would’ve taken a draw before kick off. Well done Oran and the boys.

    HT 0-1 Adam Hammill, hammer of the capital. Just when you thought him burying the Hearts with two fine goals was enough, he’s went and stuck an even better one in the Hibees net. How many yards was that lob from? 45? Stunning stuff. That’s at least two entries from him in the goal of the season contenders come May. After that Hibs have been pressing us back a bit but they look so... tame, so very tame. Long way to go and all that. What we really need to do second half is to get smart. We need to see some cynical fouling and some right dirty bastard time wasting, the more blatant the better. Hamilton gave us a lesson in that art on Saturday, let’s hope we heeded it.

    It's foolish to look at stats like shots taken and on target in isolation. It doesn't take into account where the shot came from, or placement etc. Apart from McGinns goal none of the attempts would be described as clear chances. Other than Mullen hitting the bar, we failed to test their keeper.

    Speculation Thread

    It is great if we can get a prolific goal scorer. However, who is going to provide the service? I know this is a bit negative and in recent games we have actually created more chances than the average in previously in games, but I think we need something special in midfield too. Someone who can spot a run and lay on an inch perfect pass through the defence and pitch in with goals himself. (Hammill can a bit, P McGinn can hit in a percentage of his crosses and Magennis is a great individual, however, we need better players in a number of positions. The quality needs improving. better players are more consistent. I speculate that we will offload 6 players and bring in at least 4 in January. Three of which will star for us over the remainder of the season and we will survive to build better for next year. Oh and Oran will go on to be a legend with us. (All this with no alcohol or drugs man)

    Well, f**k me. In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary and as much as it physically pains me to do so, much like passing an entire pineapple through my colon, I would like to change my response to the learned gentleman. With as much dignity as I can muster, I am now off to find a brick wall to repeatedly headbutt for 17 consecutive minutes.

    A point is always welcome, especially away from home. Dundee winning, and winning well, is a danger sign for me, Saturday we are away to Livie Dundee play Rangers at home on Sunday. Despite some people getting way too excited by Livies early "form" they are on the way down. After tonight we need to capitalise on this.

    It’s all about Hammill again really. He wins the free kick with some trickery, then hangs up a beautiful cross. Bounced about a bit then P McGinn stuck it in from close range. Yas!

    I remember some old advice about picturing yourself holding the Cup or succeeding at whatever you were involved in. This is supposed to be a motivator and quite frankly it is absolute horseshit advice. You must enjoy the process of achieving or your life becomes 99% crap and stressful with, if you are lucky, 1% joy. Seems a really terrible way to live your life but each to their own I suppose. Focussing on each step of the journey means your life is 99% enjoyable with the added bonus of getting a huge high as well. When the low comes (relegation for example) it's a temporary low followed by renewed hope for the next season. There's no downside. I know you are agreeing with me here but I had to get that off my chest after years of having to put up with business networking nights stuffed with these "life coaches" or "business coaches" bending my ear with their nonsense. I feel better now.

    Hibernian v St Mirren 5 Dec 18

    The 4 we had on target went near the goal... Agree we were naive to an extent, but it was our inability to defend set pieces which dictated our fate on Saturday. Had we been able to defend the two properly in the first half, we would have given ourselves a much better chance of picking up at least a point. We had improved this in the weeks before Saturday's game, but Saturday's demise signals that Ferdinand is indeed needed back in the starting lineup to organise us again. Improve the defending of set pieces and we can be competitve tonight. Hibs recent form has been worse even than ours and Dundee's, but they will fancy their chances against us obviously. Would be nice to complete a Capital double. Time will tell.

    He went to chase a ball near the halfway line, slipped and seemed to injure his leg. Really shite luck for him. I thought he looked decent when he came on as a sub on Saturday.

    Unfortunately, Mallan is a cert to score tonight, from distance. So a Good team tactic would be to shut him down and kick him off the park right? It is the managers job to set the tactics and the team's job to deliver them. They have other guys who can score too - we need to cut off the supply line and be ruthless - even if we have to take off players on a booking to keep 11 on the park. We must get the 1st 3 goals, and it will be fine... trust me

    In all fairness I get what you’re saying. Take Leicester City for instance. Yeah, they probably all had images of lifting the EPL title, but they were never serious to begin with. As it happened, they took it one game at a time, fought hard (I’m sure they had a few comebacks from 2-0 down early doors) and once they hit the halfway point, started to realise what was possible. Even then, the aim was to get in Europe, just to take the pressure off them a little bit with the title fight. Every manager will always want to aim high, but I doubt Raneiri entered the dressing room on the first day of pre-season and said “Right lads, I want to see us win the league or I’ll be very disappointed in you lot”.

    So when we play Alloa, we shouldn’t be singing “We’ll be there, when the Saints go up to lift the Scottish Cup...” which in fairness hasn’t worked for the past three decades. Instead we should sing - We’re on our way, we’re on our way, to the Last 16, we’re on our way if we are winning. If drawing - We’re on our way, we’re on our way, to Recreation Park, we’re on our way. (In all seriousness I do agree to take things one game at a time)

    So who do you think will lead the forward line ? Mullen or Cook ? I would give Cook the nod he has height and can be phisical especially if Hammill is putting in crosses along with Paul McGinn. We still lack a Goodwin Murray type player in the middle. Hibs are not on a great run at the moment so it's possible to come away with something.
