    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.

    Motivation Required

    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

    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.

    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)

    Nothing exciting. One shareholder complained about car parking and how you can’t read players names on back of strips !!! Couldn’t see Oran’s facial expression at that one.

    Motivation Required

    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.

    Fecking spot on LPM. I love wee Danny's commitment and effort but I do wish he'd devote more energy to staying on his feet and chasing Goals instead of Fouls. Danny Mullens boot soles sponsored by BAFTA

    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.

    This is IOBS all over. Incoherent nonsense from start to finish. In a discussion about internships he is wittering on about foodbanks, zero hour contracts, the homeless and cream carpets. You make a good point about what an internship replaces. Others seem to believe that an intern replaces a paid member of staff and keeps a potential employee out of a job but the reality is that an intern replaces nobody in most non-exploitative cases. Without the intern, there would be nobody employed in that role. The other error others on the thread like Kemp are making is they think that proving one instance of abuse somehow means all internships are thus proven to be abusive. That is no more valid a proposition than showing that one or two instances where an internship works well is proof that all internships are a good thing and that no abuse exists.

    Has to be 5-3-2 and play on the counter for me. Ferdinand back in to marshal Baird and Jones. Would be good to see Eck back if he’s fit. Hope we’ve been practising set plays. Or for the love of god don’t give away any freekicks around the box.

    Hibs are on a serious bad run of form and, like Hearts, can't buy a win. If we were at home I'd be more confident, I did think we'd get a draw against Hearts, but away from home we are fodder. Played 6, won 0, lost 5 drawn 1, scored 3 conceded 16 Miracles do happen, let's hope one happens tonight.

    You may be right about the drubbing, but since putting 6 past Hamilton on 6th October, Hibs have gone a day short of 2 months without a win, letting a 2 goal lead slip at home to Dundee, and slumped to a 3-0 defeat to Killie on Saturday. They also failed to score against a Hearts team that we cruised past 10 days ago. There are many ways to look at games - I try at least to look on the positive side.

    The cost of taxis seems to be rapidly increasing every time I visit Paisley. Used to be able to get to the airport with change out of a fiver, now it's over a tenner. Scottish football, on the other hand, is reasonably priced: http://www.scottishsupporters.net/research/price-of-football-in-scotland/ Back on topic, Hibs have been on a very poor run of form. That usually means we give them the gift a return to form. I'll be optimistic though and go for Danny Mullen to take his chance and a 2-1 win for the Saints.
