    I'll break my self imposed posting ban to pass comment on Steve's untimely passing... Yes Steve and I got together with the idea of doing a film regarding the closure of the Love St years. He was working in broadcast equipment hire and myself in broadcast TV coverage. It was a fair old bumpy ride putting the thing together, it never quite turned out as originally intended but we became good pals during or indeed 'in spite' of the process. Steve's marketing experience and good sales abilities were priceless throughout. I got to know his family too, him, the Mrs and young Andrew relocating to Troon after a time down south, around the time of the movie project. I hadn't been to many games or made much contact after we left Love Street owing to the usual weekend work commitments, but finally ran into Steve and Andrew at a cold midweek game in late 2018 after my leg amputation experience had seen me laid up for most of that year. Sadly that was when he informed me his beloved other half had contracted, and quickly succumbed to cancer and everything was up in the air. Steve somehow soldiered on and was still a regular at both home and away games with Andrew by his side. So with that in mind, I hope he's in a happier place now and that (if you believe in these kind of things) that they are back together. If you see Andrew at a game in the future, and know him, wish him well. My sincere condolences to family and friends. May they both rest in peace.

    If we had acted earlier when cases were lower we could have had circuit breaker lock downs for shorter periods, over the half-tern breaks & Christmas like I argued a month ago, so yet again I'll say I think we should have locked down during these periods. This would have driven down case numbers and saved lives, not just delayed deaths and all this with less damage to the economy than we'll eventually have to deal with - that's clearly what SAGE were advocating in September Lockdowns obviously can save lives if you eliminate the virus as Far Eastern countries have shown and that Europe bottled out of in the summer, then you can concentrate on more established treatments, your method sacrifices people to Covid and Cancer etc and for what - to save you a bit of money when it comes to paying for the pandemic. It may very well be too late to eliminate the virus in the UK/Europe pre-vaccine and my fear is we'll probably not go the full distance again in this lockdown but to give an example I'd rather follow the Far Eastern route pf elimination coupled with near ubiquitous mask wearing than the half-hearted European route or perish the thought the US model that you, Nigel and your gammon window licking compadres want.

  5. Yeah my mistake, but in fact moving forward a month shows the number of cases already in the upward spiral the lockdown decision should've been made in September.

    IF they felt the need I do agree missing the school holidays was an error but I still think they have jumped as the numbers, cases, seem to be leveling out, as outrageously high as they are, which suggest the previous measures were having an effect.

    I'm mainstream me, I think me & Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer are advocating just about the same ideas... ...although apparently he knows the difference between August & September.

  12. From what has been written about him, he will make a good contribution. I'm not sure what some folk expect when a player signs for us................. a world class mid-field genius?

  17. Looks like our natural level of signing - only concern is why no-one else has taken a punt on him, although he sorta answered this on the OS. Guess he always wanted to visit the location of Stealer's Wheel second elpee...

  21. You'd have to define "undeducated". People learn all through their lives, it's the source & nature of the information they absorb and how they choose to use it that is the issue for us all and the prism though which we all gauge each other's abilities.

    You think we should have locked down the entire UK in September when only about 10-30 people were dying every day? While we're on the subject, we need to put this endless and tedious moralising to bed. Lockdown doesn't "save lives". It delays deaths at best, to prevent overwhelming the NHS. You spread the deaths out. That is the only justification for ever having any form of lockdown because as soon as restrictions are lifted, the thing takes off again. That was made crystal clear right back at the start by the same scientists urging lockdowns in the first place - once you start, you can never get out without a cure. That's my objection to lockdowns.

    You've got the wrong date. If you really meant August, then what you are saying is that we should have locked down again when daily deaths in the UK were almost zero. Which is about the level of support you'd have had if you'd suggested it at the time.

    Referring to the 1000 - 7day average, I believe you've got September and Augusts figures mixed up. [emoji106]

  26. Back to league business after what seems an eternity since going bottom after the Aberdeen game. Strangely enough we've moved up since then with Accies losing two games..... Anyway to tomorrow's game - after the travails of the LC & Covid we have a somewhat augmented squad to face United who are in decent form, on the field anyway. Fingers crossed....🤞

  27. Clunie was a great player - even with Aberdeen. I was merely pointing out that his greatness didnae hinder theBuddies in the 1959 final! and that ye hudnae noticed he was up against Saints in yon match.

  32. I hear box-to-box midfielder and even to this day the first Saints player that comes to mind is Steven Thomson. If he's anywhere near as good as Thomson was, I'll have some of that!

  34. Jesus you really are never happy are you? 🤣 30 games for an English League 2 side that finished 4th last season, very decent level for a team like St Mirren.

  35. He's not on trial he's signed a contract and given he was a free agent having been released by an EPL club WTF has his nationality got to do with it. That's bordering on racist and there is no need for it.
