    Anyone STILL questioning Obika needs their head checked. There were questions raised early on last season but as the league progressed so did he. If any one player saved us from relegation it was him.

    Contrary to others on here, I thought we improved when Morais came on. Yes, he missed a sitter, and yes he gave away possession a few times, but overall I thought he proved more of an attacking threat than McAlister had. Hopefully both improve. Defence and keeper were excellent. Great three points for us !

    Obika had a fine game. Did far more that Lyndon Dykes achieved the entire game.

    Kyle showed under Oran that he can play at this level. Last year was a bad one for him due to injuries and even his tweet after the match being critical of himself for me shows his confidence is low. He can definitely play at this level but needs a full injury fee season. 100% agree we need another striker but Morias as a sub late on to stretch teams will do for me. No one can doubt the guys work rate

    I thought Obika led the line really well. His hold up play was excellent. My problem is no one was creating chances for him. Morais was better than McAllister but his mistakes and decision making are a worry. We will hopefully get a striker in. I am liking the team we are building.

    It’s quite obvious that div doesn’t read the forum as much anymore and is probably going on people crying to him as faraways hurt their feelings. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. Proper moderation would work wonders, I’d get rid of the sin bin too, people get sent in here, and the majority of the forum ends up in here, so it’s a bit pointless 😂. If you can’t handle someone giving you some banter, put them on ignore, don’t be a grass 😂

    Yes just reading the VST thread, it's odd. We cast it from an iPhone onto Samsung smart TV and bar the 2m 2nd half where the server down message came up on screen, the picture was fine. Suggests there must have been more than 1 server used. Certainly didn't have the sort of issues some experienced. Reading that thread it appears both ST holders and PPV buyers have discovered that they can pass the login to another household and it worked. That is utter nonsense in that it's going to reduce income massively if that becomes widespread and it will contribute to bandwidth issues as there will be x percent more "subscribers" than they will have calculated from sales. Need to get that stopped pronto.

    That may have contributed to the problem? A supplier estimates how many users they will have and if each user decides that they will use multiple devices then the supplier has underestimated the number of simultaneous users causing slowness and breaks.

    For everyone being critical of Morias...yes he should score but seen plenty of players miss when trying to hit it first time coming out the air, his second run he did get a bit lost as he didn’t know what to do...but at least that was two moments where he caused them problems. McAllister didn’t have a kick all game, I know he’s been out a while and had his issues last year and we all know there’s a good player in there but today alone he contributed zero.

    Thought McGrath was excellent. But had great games V Morherwell in the cup and the league game. Think he is gonna end up a very good signing.

    For those who are new to Saints tv , this is the standard of service they've dished out since it started. Ropey picture, dodgy sound , buffering and graphics problems ( get ready for a few games without then score and clock in the corner) . They even play interviews at half time that you can't hear because the also have the music in the stadium being broadcast. Emails and tweets go unanswered so gave up complaing to them. Hopefully they'll get more complaints ( and take action) now thousands rather than around 100 are trying to watch. I've watched our games on arabtv, red tv, hibs tv and even falkirk tv and our product is by far the worst. I suppose the only way is up, but not for the team cos we're joint top

    Luckily the manager disagrees with you. Obika IS "a proper forward". Goodwin praised Obika, recognising he'd led the line up front, wonderfully. Held the ball up well and took some strain off the defence. Yes, he could have been better supported which may be why there seems to be interest in Celtic's Bayo. Goodwin said on Zoom the other night that he was still in the market for forwards, recognising Saints can't rely solely on Jon Obika all season.

    The Funny As Feck Thread

    I'm off for a few days holiday, I'll leave this...........................smile, it's what makes life worth living. A young fella with his pants hanging half off his arse, no front teeth and a half inch thick gold chain around his neck, walked into the local unemployment office to pick up his benefit money. He strolled up to the counter and said: "Hi there, you know what... I really HATE claiming benefits, I'd really much rather have a job. I don't like taking advantage of the system and getting something for nothing." The social worker behind the counter said: "Wow, your timing is excellent. We've just received a job opening from a very wealthy elderly man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter. You'll have to drive around in his brand new Mercedes-Benz CL, he'll supply all of your clothes and because of the unsocial hours, meals will be provided free of charge, you'll also be expected to escort his daughter on her overseas holiday trips, but you will also have as part of your job, to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20's and has a rather strong sexual appetite." The guy, jaw dropping and wide-eyed said: "You're bull-shittin' me !" The social worker said: "Yeah, well . . . You started it . . .“

    Why? What did he do wrong. Some people are never happ and always looking for a scape goat they can moan at. Last season it was Callum Waters. I think Marcus Fraser was excellent today. Coys

    Ok? I'm not sure what the point of that whole paragraph was. Who was talking about Stubbs? There were worse players under Stubbs... so Junior isn't that bad then, is he? Who said anything about time? On our budget, especially at this time (and given we haven't so far brought in another forward) Junior is obviously what we can afford for that level of player. He does a job at stretching a game late on, if nothing else. I can't tell you if you were criticising him initially or not but if you don't want to criticise Kyle, then don't? He was a big factor in us surviving under Kearney. Him and Dreyer were the sole bits of proper quality we had. It's his first pre-season injury free in many years by his own admission and he is only 21, I doubt a loan player of that age from another club would receive as much criticism (not necessarily from yourself by the way) as our own do.

    Change password didn’t work, had to use original password, saw 10 minutes at the start then had buffering for 25 minutes so missed the goal. Not impressed.

    Top of the league 🎈 thought we where the better team, morias should of had us 3-1 up, not sure if the boys out his depth or just lack of confidence, but he NEEDS to be more clinical and ruthless if he wants a career at a decent level, done well holding the ball up to waste time towards end in all fairness but I could of flung my tele out the window when he was one on one and decided to change feet, frustrating as f**k, if we where chasing a goal I think he’d be getting a lot more flak. Hate being negative but it really annoyed me😂 would say McGrath played his best game in the stripes yesterday, all the new signings looked good too, Sam foley another special mention, in hospital a week ago getting an op and breezed through a full 90. What a guy. mon the paisley brazilians🐼

    Given that Dykes is readily valued at well over a million quid, I'd say definitely not.

    For all he lacks, in the grand scheme of things we've had worse squad players than Junior (providing we get another forward in). RE: McAllister - there always has to be 1 homegrown scapegoat, doesn't there? There will be games Durmus is quiet and Kyle wins us... wingers don't play consistently, it's a tale as old as time.

    If he's supposedly injury prone and currently carrying a hamstring injury, why are we remotely interested in him when we're in immediate need of a striker. We're either desperate or off our head.

    Probably the only way he will score ! Signed when we were desperate to get players in but I doubt he will be here next season when his contract runs out. May even go in next window We will definitely get another striker in, hopefully 2 then his appearances will be minimal if at all.

    Defence was fantastic. Alnwick looks agile and confident. MotM for saints was between Shaughnessy and Obika. I don't agree that Morias miss was as bad as some say. Yet to see it again but I thought it was a difficult take with the ball coming over his head. Not the best game and we need to get more control of the midfield against teams that will be around us. Still. Second in the league in alphabetical order is a good start.

    Couldn’t fault Fraser or any other defenders today. In fact , I think the whole team, plus subs (incl Morais) performed well today. On to Castle Greyskull. COYS !!

    In for Bayo of Celtic again according to Raman Remember we were close to getting him in Jan but Celtic couldn’t get Rhodes over the line so fell through My Celtic supporting pal said he’s a big raw prospect but does have goals in him

    Couldn't agree more. Morais as I have said many times on this forum is nowhere near good enough. Not really sure what JG sees in him. His miss hitting the post was laughable but worse was when he was through at the end and looked utterly clueless as to what to do. Continually gave away possession. Maybe gymnastics or 100m sprinting would be more his line of work. I think though we will sign another striker and he'll be a bit part player coming on occassionally just in the way Keith Curle described him when signed him from Northampton. Thought defence was excellent. Midfield created little and allowed Livi to dominate. Overall a great 3 points, not sure we deserved them though.

    Picture worked perfectly for us for the full 90. Couldn’t hear commentators first half but heard them fine second half. Would suggest that people who had problems with the stream today that the problems lies with their internet connection or other hardware. Things working fine at Saints end.

    Not convinced with Fraser? It's his first competitive game of the season and a new team for him. I won't judge any player until they are match fit and used to the players around them.

    Coronavirus

    I currently have a virus. Not the popular topical one. (Still... not pleasant. ) I've had cause to go through my local A+E twice in the past month, being processed via the usual triage services. They ask me if I want a mask - I don't like to hurt their feelings so I take one. (Once I omitted to put it on - no one got excited.) Most practitioners, nurses, staff, porters do wear masks as they're face to face with potentially a whole shoal of communicable sicknesses in their daily routine. Sensible.... But what struck me was that not one of the several doctors I saw working in that part of the hospital ever wore a mask. MD (Medical Doctor) in Monday's Private Eye had a few words about mask-wearing to start his currently regular page on CV19. I'll try to foto that and post here.

    A lot of folk I know were rightly waxing lyrical about his performance v Therangers last season so he's certainly shown he CAN step up. His injury record is probably the reason for his underperformance to date. I hope he stays clear of those injuries this season and shows his real potential.

    So, it seems there were considerable issues trying to log/sign in for many supporters. The sound, pretty much across the board, although I did see ONE post who surprisingly held an opposite view, the sound in the first half was next to useless. The picture quality was a different world from St MIrren TV, as good as any coverage from anyone I could name. Lets hope it was mostly teething problems and things get better in the coming weeks.

    I certainly lost it for about 15 minutes in first half. My internet connection was fine, l could get on anything else, could log back into St Mirren TV but could not get anything else. Then it resolved. Not ideal given they are charging for privilege. Otherwise a good day.
