  1. It's not about an 'old' or 'new' strip, it's about IDENTITY. - what people recognized as a St Mirren strip. If the club can't come back to ask the fans their opinion on something as basic as this then the concept of community club is a facade.

    Fiona MacAskill

    Fiona's family have contacted Div. He will update funeral arrangements to him to post. Seemingly she had 4 brain hemorrhages. But she couldn't fight that so she passed away peacefully with her family around her. Her dad said she got see the Utd 2nd leg game. Which made her happy. A Saint till the end. RIP.

  4. Your very last point has been mine since day one. Nothing! Rien. De nada. Zilch. Nowt! Not one bit if effort into incentivising our own support or building it up. No foresight. No initiative. No desire. Easy option. Easy money. It basically came down to not wanting to piss off the w7 crew so shafting the family stand instead. That simple. Not one f**k was given!

  5. No luck mate but I'm sure you'll have a ball. After the playoffs and the almost immediate fixtures in the Betfred Cup I went in a huff over the lack of a summer break. I vowed I wouldn't be going to any games till the start of the season proper. However within 10 mins of the Ireland tour being announced the gang was mustered the ferries and hotels were booked and we were on our way. Fecking couldn't help ourselves. As we just found out life's too short mate. I'll no doubt end up at most of the Betfred games too but the plan is to give them a miss UNLESS we have exciting signings we HAVE to see. Make the most of the lakes. See you at the Betfred.

  6. You appear to have made the same mistake as Baz. The figure for the extra fans the OF bring needs to take into account those who used to be put in W7. That drastically reduces the apparent financial benefits of giving them the whole Family Stand.

  7. Look up the wee red book for that matter any online info on the club. Club colour, black and white stripes. Its who we are not just a strip.

  8. Why not? Community is defined by the Oxford dictionary as, 'A group of people living together and practising common ownership'. It is simply getting people involved in the interaction of St Mirren FC. It doesn't cost the club money to get the opinion of fans of the design of the strip. 'One for all and all for one'. The more fans are invited to participate the stronger the club becomes.

  9. Fiona was a legend. Often met her at home and away games (she seldom missed any) and drank with her in the club and Hospitality a few times. She was a True Bud. She supported all the players and wouldn't hear a bad word against any of them. She was always 100% behind the team and the club. As a few on here have eluded she wasn't called the screamer for nothing. She was a very vocal supporter and very proud to be a buddie. Puts life into perspective I was getting all excited about a trip to Ireland and then bang. She is no more. Bummer. I don't know her family but my thoughts are with them. If Anyone gets any details re the funeral. Post them on here. Thanks. RIP Fiona.

  10. This topic i never going away as soon as we play one of them it will be brought up again because it's not right and no amount of denial from anyone is going is change that. We're taking our family stand from our own fans and giving it to the 2 most bigoted team in Scotland, right away that should be enough of a reason not to give them it. seemingly we prefer their money to our fans coming first...this is fact.

    I hope you speak the truth here as I would be very happy to see all four of those guys back this coming season. I’m not concerned about whether two of these would be loans, for me the bonus would be continuity in the squad. Still need Popescu.......... And a (15goal a season) striker would obviously be the icing on the cake ! Not concerned at the lack of updates coming from the club as I trust Gus, Tony and OK, and do believe it’s good for any talks to be behind closed doors. Although I do admit I find that frustrating as f**k !

  12. Sadly Fiona passed away this morning. Seemingly her life support was switch off. The club chairman told us tonight at a meeting at the club. I'm sure all St.Mirren Fans are saddened by this news RIP FIONA FOREVER A SAINT. [emoji853]

  15. I wouldn't class it as a mistake to not include those who used to be in W7 as I believe the choice is now a straight line between 1 or 2 stands. Having said that, if you do want to do the calculations on that basis then you are obviously correct, less extra season tickets would be required. I'm not sure how many as I don't know how many old firm fans were seated in W6/7. Incidentally, I'm not trying to argue that the extra income is substantial enough to hand over both stands. My point was more that Bazils estimated figure of over 1300 season tickets was not accurate. My season ticket is in the main stand so I'm not directly affected in terms of having to move, however having to enter and (particularly) leave the stadium through a whole host of opposition fans is far from a good experience, never mind the sporting benefits restricting them to one stand may bring. I personally believe the club should instead be doing more to encourage more home fans along and making more money that way.

    Our Strip. What Next?

    It is "largely along that design" in as much as it is also t-shirt. Just shows you Adidas have got their moneys worth from their designers over the years. It's all in the details. Those saying "its just a strip ffs" would do well to remember the sole reason we were relegated last time round was solely and entirely due to the car crash of a strip with the illuminous yellow touches that nobody could even fit over their heid. Or maybe that was just symbolic of the lack of interest in running the club at the time... To be honest, it is an improvement on last seasons. I suppose the reason grown men get so worked up about a shirt is just simply the hope each year we might go back to the traditional black & white stripes we all fell in love with at some point in our youth. It wouldn't be that difficult, would it?

  30. So if we don't we continue to be surrounded by them thus handing them an extra advantage... Remember, the BOD and our manager have repeatedly indicated the importance of the fans this season....apart from the OF games it seems...

  33. Ah the tangled web we weave....... it isn’t that long ago that one of the central planks of the argument was that the decision would be reversed........ guess it must be difficult to remember what to argue consistently when the default position is that the Board are right.

  34. What kid wants an old fashioned top they are the most likely to actually wear the strips to have one similar to juves kit is great and well done for the club. A lot of old buggers need to stop their crying about tops they would never buy anyway

  36. You could have saved a lot of time by simply saying Yes! You are a club apologist with a default setting of criticising anyone who dares step out of line. Whatever floats your boat. Personally, I think he made a very good point. I suppose Killie taking a stand against your beloved teams won't go down well with you. Hurting? [emoji23] [emoji14]

  37. STF up hen and get on with your proper job... the one you were elected to do. Scottish electorate = 4,283,938, votes cast in EU referendum... leave 1,018,322, remain 1,661,191 = Total votes 2,679.315... which means that 1.6 million couldn't be arsed......... The same number that voted remain. Over one million Scots voted to leave. .. ... You said you wanted to represent ALL Scots... Not just SNP voters... so Nicola you can go play with the traffic... You have NO mandate for your very predictable yet tiresome response.

  40. The target to get W7 kept for home fans only wasn’t to sell out the West Bank with season tickets, if I recall correctly it was if we sell x amount of ST’s by a certain date then W7 will be saints fans exclusively. No such incentive or variation of this was given to try and keep the family stand for families for the season so there is absolutely no chance of the decision being reversed this season. No clutching at straws required here. If for example the position had been if there are say 500 Adult ST’s sold by a certain date then we won’t hand the stand to the opposition at all next season, then that might have been an incentive to maximise sales. But it simply didn’t happen and each season that goes by with the current arrangement makes it less and less likely that it will be reversed. Those saying that if we sell out the other two stands then the decision will be reversed are the ones being disingenuous with their argument and to be fair to the board, even they haven’t put this forward as a solution. But then again the board haven’t engaged constructively in this in anyway or proposed anything concrete as a solution. Unless of course certain posters on here do actually speak for the board rather than having an unofficial apologist status.

    Really? It was entirely due to the appointment of Tommy Craig and the shite signings that he made. Anyway, it's a moot point. The season's strips a nowhere near as poor as that season's efforts.

    Mullen was our most prolific striker - of players with more than the equivalent of 5 whole games played - with a goal every 280 minutes last season in the Premiership. For comparison, Jackson got 1 every 354 minutes, Nazon 1 in his 478 minutes. Cooke had a far better record due to his hat trick against Dundee, but only played 310 minutes in total, with the 3 goals coming in one 24 minute purple patch. He and Mullen could make a very good partnership. Mullen also got crucial goals in the play off final, the goals that won us the opener against Dundee, and also the winner against Dundee away, plus a late equaliser against St Johnstone and the goal that put us ahead at Livingston, both in the post split fixtures, which helped us avoid bottom spot. Danny has proven he can score goals at the level we are at. Hopefully he can steer clear of injuries and get a clear run next season.

  48. Mullen's issue is that he refuses to accept, and the manager fails to,impress on him that he is a winger! he has neither the physique, strength or guile to play up top in a lone or pairing. His game is better suited to providing good supply to a forward/forwards. His woefully poor goal return is indicative of being poor at holding it up. played on the wing with Cooke, and an established (non-hobbit) striker he would shine, and might actually get a few more goals as a consequence of the others holding it up, or cutting in on his own.
