    Come on Rangers

    No thank you. I got booted out of the Station Bar in 2003 for cheering Porto's 3rd goal in Seville, after reminding the barman that no I didn't have to support Celtic - it's supposed to be a f**king St. Mirren pub. I'll equally have streamers and whistles for an Eintracht Frankfurt win tomorrow. Never forget who these cunts are... they leave towns like Paisley, Renfrew, Erskine, Johnstone and all over Scotland every week to support a club that they know will bring success. They'll then laugh at you for supporting shitey wee St. Mirren despite growing up a mile or so from the ground....and that's the good ones. 90% couldn't find Ibrox if you dropped them a Bellahouston or Parkhead from the top end of Duke Street but will still try and talk to you about 'their' club as if they have more or equal a vested interest in Rangers or Celtic than you do in SMFC. So no, bigger picture or not, I wholeheartedly f**king reject any notion of either of these cuntish clubs being successful in Europe. Any other club, I'd be all for. Either of those two? Forget it.

  4. Indeed there is nothing at all amiss about 'opinions' especially when it comes to football,, however they do need to be based on reality.... unlike Mr B 's. Allowing that much of what he implied about the team and its lack of urgency in recent times, yesterday the whole team clearly ate their Weetabix, took their vitamins and picked a lucky four-leaf clover en-route to the stadium, Main was a revelation, he ran, he harried, he tackled, he worked his socks off and had the best match in a St Mirren shirt ever, Grieve likewise kept at it for the whole game, and Kiltie and Ronnan, even Taite were excellent, , the whole team in fact were a class above where they have been recently. Now when I say a class above, I don't mean in quality although we showed improvement, but rather in work rate and consistency and application, not world class but way above Mr B's interpretation.

  5. Bit early to speculate about next season however yesterday's formation and tactics shows promise. We were far more attacking than we have been all season. We got the ball up the pitch constantly with few pass backs. Only once that I can remember the ball ending up back at Alnwick when players ran out of ideas (and that was from Fraser). Getting rid of two wingers was also a great move. All season we have played with two wide men so wide they were rarely in the game; didn't support the midfield; and never got close enough to support the lone striker and usually hit hopeful crosses to the far corner flag. Yesterday we were hitting low balls into the box which are far, far more effective. And playing with one defensive midfielder and one creative central midfielder gave us more fight and thrust in the middle of the park with Ronan dictating play (contrary to what others say). And of course two strikers with Kiltie playing off them made us far more attacking and kept the ball up the park a lot more than usual. So the formation and tactics were a huge plus for me. A far more effective and entertaining way to play football. Just need the right players to carry it off next season.

  6. Clutching at straws with the anti Robbo posts... we were shite most of this season and this bollocks about 4th place was some mere second in time - we were in the hunt for top 6 in spite of some dire and woeful pre Robinson results. We were only in contention for top 6 because Aberdeen & Hibs played absolutely no where near there level - we didn't deserve it and we are where we are because we cannot defend and have zero intent going forward. This is not down to 1 manager and a handful of fixtures!!!!. Compared to last season this was a real disappointment and this goes back to the summer transfer window and our style of play when JG was in charge . Things haven't improved I grant you but it was not pretty this season loooong before Robbo arrived 🤷🤷🤷🤷

  7. No bitterness from me I believe you should always support your home team and the Country of your birth, and we should get behind and support other teams from the Country when they play in Europe and England.. unless you have a good and honest reason not to. I looked up my family tree quite recently {yesterday actually} and found my Great X 15 Grandfather Wolfgang Schultz moved to paisley from Frankfurt as a bricklayer to help build the Paisley Abbey I've Followed Eintracht ever since 🇩🇪

  8. Just back home after a great trip to Paisley, 3 generations of Buds on tour. Really enjoyed the game and an excellent team performance. Everything went to plan and a nice reception for a club legend at HT too. Rejuvenated Main has transformed into a new player the last couple of games, topped off with beauty today, the strike and the take down were quality. Pleased to see the bigman starting to click and looking that he could actually be an asset next season. Even without my black and white specs on, what was that ref all about today? He had a shocker. McCarthy looked a bit shaky at the back but his teammates got him out of jail a couple of times. Gogic definitely runs in Duracell batteries, he was everywhere and we should be pushing the boat out to get him signed! We’ve managed to come good at a crucial time. I was fearing we were heading for the playoffs but Robinson must’ve used the wee break before the St Johnstone game to sort things out. Hopefully the feel good factor continues into next season. What a contrast of emotions compared to the Dee and Fakes fans. Feeling much more optimistic than I was a couple of weeks ago. Loved it today.

    The type of striker that is in the right place at the right time. A constant pest to opposition defenders too. With a pre-season behind him, he'll only get better IMO.

    Agreed. Tait had a good season last season but this season has not been the same player. Would let him go. If we keep frasier and get Norm from Newport then just need cliff and woody to complete the defence. Cheers

  12. I only watched the highlights but this post is utter drivel. We were, surprisingly for me, the much better side, created more chances and were comfortably the better team. Aye, St Johnstone are 2nd bottom but had been on a better run of form than a few of the bottom six, or doesn't that suit your consistent "viewpoint "? Until yesterday most people shared your opinion but most people would admit we stepped up yesterday and the players and the manager deserve credit. It's embarrassing you can't admit that.

  13. 🙈🙈 You must be watching a different game . Anyone who says the players have " chucked it" based on this performance so far is either so anti SR that they pour out all the usual clap trap hoping it will seem applicable or they are just bloody clueless!!! Which one are you?? Exactly 🤷

  14. The fans made it pretty clear they are unhappy with the current two stands being given to the old firm. This was mentioned to our chairman last September so if ur telling me that he’s unable to make a decision on this in time for next season then that’s absolutely rubbish. If this club is truly a family club committed to growing their support then let our families sit in their seats in every match .

    I see Callum Hendry scored again for the Saintees last night, he's been excellent for them since coming back from his loan at Killie. He's 24 and out of contract in the summer, definitely one i think we should be offering a deal too.

    Jim Clunie was probably the best centre half who has played for St Mirren in my lifetime. He was also the most skilful defender in Scotland in his era but was overlooked for international caps because of the bias within the SFA towards inferior Old Firm players.

    The new formation should help Brophy more with 2 strikers playing off each other with Kiltie in support. In almost all Brophy's games we had 2 sitting midfielders and two wingers pumping in high balls from as far away from Brophy as the park would allow. The guy was isolated most games. With decent support hopefully his record will improve. And he is still the top scoring striker by some distance. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    St Mirren v Dundee

    Charlie Adam’s early pass back which led to the Alex Grieve goal lent credibility to the chant that he was still a Saint. What was he thinking off? Great hammer of a left foot shot for the second goal by Curtis Main who has been reborn as a player over the past few games. Overall, a good performance and high intensity work rate throughout the team yesterday.

  37. I’ve just arrived at B&W Army so hello. I couldn’t agree with you more. From the start of the game we were playing as if it meant something. Kiltie in a role he enjoys but , to me, it was Grieve and Main that worked an incredible shift. It’s probably Main’s best 90 minutes in the jersey. We’re just about safe and this buys valuable time for Robbo. All the previous chatter about Goodwin is of interest but he didn’t really achieve anything with us. Don’t get me wrong, our winning run in 2022 was great. Draws have been our downfall and most of those have been on his watch.

  38. Robinson showed on Saturday that he has a willingness to change formation and personnel and it worked. Credit to him for that. Goodwin was very stubborn in that sense. Like many others I have been very critical of his style and the content of his interviews but I haven’t got a clue whether or not he is a good coach or what his man management skills are like. Anyone who can make Main play like he did on Saturday must have something about him.

  39. The players definitely lifted their game yesterday and it was a mixture of relief, surprise and joy that we got the result. They finally put in a performance similar to how they were playing on the good run under Goodwin, a big part of it being really solid at the back. It has taken Robinson too long to get them ticking, probably due to his different style of man management and his formation but the players need to shoulder some of the blame. They turned it around and were excellent. His interviews after some of the defeats have been really poor too, but credit to him and the team for stepping up to the plate against the fakes. We picked up nearly every second ball in midfield and looked more assured at the back again. Tactics, formation and effort all spot on. We are normally terrible at Perth too but they definitely wanted it more which should be a big worry for St J fans. Goodwin signed Main who has been woeful, but it’s interesting that it’s Robinson that finally got the best out of him. I’m quite optimistic about the team that he might build next season, even if “The Hippo” is part of it. Hopefully this is the turning point that most of us didn’t see coming. A few more wins and climbing a couple of places in the league for prize money and momentum would be perfect now. We are now looking forward to another season in the topflight with time for the new manager to build his own team.

  40. Huge, huge result and Robinson appears to have got his tactics spot on. Crucially the players busting a gut and showing bottle. With safety( almost ) assured will we see a more relaxed saints and some of the youngsters given a chance? Hats off to the new(ish) boss. It only takes one game to change everything and today might just have been it. Marching In!

  42. WSW supporter here, thought i'd pop in and give a little run down on Keanu Baccus. Baccus is a very respected player within the Wanderers fanbase, earning himself the nickname "Parklea Messi", having amassed over 110 appearances across 6 seasons (usually a 26/27 game season). He has scored 6 goals and provided 10 assists across his senior career, mostly playing as a central defensive midfielder. Earlier in his career, he would play at right back, and at times over the last 2 seasons, he would be deployed as an attacking midfielder. This season he has performed well alongside midfield partner and former England international Jack Rodwell. Pros: - Very hard working, doesn't stop running for 90 minutes. - Young leader. - Physical player despite his skinnier build, breaks up play well. - Probably his best attribute, always looks to advance the ball forward. - Decent long balls, for example (go to 2:29 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phOeSq3EIa8). - Decent long shots, think 4 of his 6 goals are from outside the box, for example, here are 2 against Melbourne Victory and Newcastle Jets (1:27 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaoaA8FOOE0&t=22s) (1:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PivHLZIa9p4&t=95s). - Quite creative. Has a very nice through ball, see his assists against Leeds United and Adelaide for example (3:58 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYZM5j8maRw) (0:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IANz5wMP_AQ&t=25s). Cons: - Sometimes loses the ball in dangerous areas of the pitch. Hasn't happened as much if at all from memory this season, used to happen a fair bit. - Will occasionally give away some really cheap, silly fouls in bad areas of the pitch. - Not the best with his back to goal, this contributes to him losing the ball in bad areas and exposes the team to counter attacks. - Not the best aerially, however did score a header in a recent "Sydney Derby" (3:11 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3akmhG2iqY). Summary: Overall, he is a really solid young player with a lot of potential, still a fair bit to improve on. Hoping he is able to show his class to the Black and White Army, and that he continues to develop into a top player. Will be keeping a close eye on how he and St Mirren perform this upcoming season, might even have to get myself a Baccus St Mirren jersey.

  43. Maybe get top 6 that way ? What is wrong with Carson ? We are current not very good and that was the case under Goodwin which Robinson is paying a heavy price for. Bet he can't wait to get players in who he knows well and can improve us

  44. When does the time start for players to take the blame. We have loan players who have no loyalty to us and players wiith an eye for the exit door. Is it the managers fault or has our playing squad chucked it. Robinson clearly identified this when coming to the club and that is why he cannot get a tune out of some of them.

  46. Yes.. Putting the ball in the back of the net was absolutely a concern- this was linked to a complete lack of pace throughout the team & a real dearth of talent with noone having the ability to provide consistent " quality balls " Our strikers to a man were fed scraps at best, and total shite more often than not. I would reserve judgement on the strikers until we resolve some of the major problems in behind them

  49. Dropping Power today, was probably Robinson's best selection decision today. I'm looking forward to seeing Robinson with his own players from the start of next season and not have to nurse a group of players abandoned by the guy who persuaded them to come to the club, based on his long term vision for the club. Also, hopefully, if he adopts three at the back, he'll actually sign players that are up to the job, and if it clearly isn't working, he'll won't persist with it for half of the season. He might actually sign a striker that scores goals, rather than underachievers on 3 grand a week.
