    I have decided against my better judgement to head to Tynecastle on Saturday. Called the ticket office only to be told that they don’t/can’t post tickets out, they aren’t available online, no cash turnstiles and that I would need to collect them in person which would entail a roughly a 120 mile round trip to do this. It really shouldn’t be that difficult to purchase tickets. Clubs, not just ours, need to waken up and realise that we are customers and we can walk away as a few have done since the pandemic started.

  2. JN sat entirely on his tod yesterday in the St. J directors box. No sign of the other directors or Tony. He needs to resign before the sfa hearing or the club needs to come out in support of him and move on. We can’t allow the sfa to decide the outcome. For me he can’t stay with any credibility.

  3. He made a stupid mistake. He has apologised to Sevco and St Mirren. He called out the Sevco fans for behaviour that was selfish and putting lives at risk through the spreading of Covid before the vaccination was in place. Everyone in the country was making big sacrifices at that point. Sevco as a club and their players actively encouraged this behaviour. No action from the SFA. Their fans on their recent visit to St Mirren Park spray painted graffiti around the stadium, broke more than 100 seats and sang sectarian songs. No action from the SFA (as far as I’m aware?) Did Sevco apologise to St Mirren for the damage their ‘supporters’ caused that day? John Needham let St Mirren down badly with his use of language in criticising Sevco fans, due to his position on the Saints board at the time. I was initially split down the middle about whether he should resign or not, but as time goes on and we all reflect on the blind eye that the SFA have turned towards the “Old” Firm for decades, especially the blue half, I think his apology is enough. I understand people saying that he is sinking down to Sevco levels, but there’s a big difference. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but at least he has taken responsibility for his unacceptable behaviour and said sorry, unlike Sevco. All the other Scottish clubs need to stand up against the institutionalised bigotry that seems to be accepted by the SFA, as well as the preferential treatment that the pair of them receive and John Needham resigning is giving in to them. Time to move on.

    Four months on and nothing has improved. 1.you can’t get through to the club as nobody answers the phones. 2. To buy a ticket living fair distance away is a nightmare. People have no chance of getting one with this nonsensical format of having to go to the ticket office. 3. When you do turn up there is no que but still you need to wait 10 mins watching the only staff member fails to acknowledge me whilst on a phone call? I mean what is that all about. 4. when entering the shop to buy some kits your told we only have A handful of gk kits and we aren’t getting anymore. I mean a premier league club with say six kits and no socks to go with them. So how many children will want the kit but will be disappointed. Only last season all 3 colours were available? What again is going on. I also couldn’t get a five year old a pair of home shorts today? It’s absolutely terrible that our club is not capable of doing better. 5 The panda club was meant to return v Dundee then it was Livingston and now it’s Hibs. Unbelievable that a premier league club can’t get this sorted and worse still communicate this ? My son was left not knowing if it was on or off against Dundee ? Young fan disappointed and we can’t afford this. The chairman said on sept 6 we are listening and we will improve ? I mean even the pie stalls have a limited menu these days. No burgers or hot dogs for the kids. How much cash are we losing . Also I believe people are not attending in the same numbers. Sure many reasons but how many have we lost because of the absolutely terrible customer service and fan experience we offer.

    Panda club

    The area of the family stand is missing the 40 odd kids that used to sit there as members of the Panda club . These are our future supporters and regardless of the score were always singing and supporting the team. It costs ,I believe £2/3k per year ,surely someone will sponsor this and get it reinstated. BRING BACK THE PANDA CLUB (AND THE PANDA!)

    I'm not going to games, at the moment... Here are some reasons that might apply to me and perhaps others? No thanks or recognition, none whatsoever, for season long financial outlay during season of no attendance, (didn't watch online) No invitation, email or otherwise, to renew season ticket, #INYOUWETRUST is crass, Red zone and restricted attendance shambles, No contact to advise if I did by a season ticket my seat was not available because of the red zone, No contact to advise if I did by a season ticket , because of the red zone, I would be moved to somewhere else, No contact to advise the red zone is no longer in place and I can have my seat as normal, Both ends of the ground being allocated to an away team, St Mirren Directors being supporters of other (Glasgow) clubs, SMISA appointment of Directors without a members vote, Shambolic organisation of club services, Rumours of Directors infighting, power struggle, Dissatisfaction with Kibble or ownership structure, It's too cold, Football is not very good, COVID is still an issue, Other things taking priority now, Just some thoughts... take your pick, No doubt I'll be back, one day soon, don't know when though...

  9. Seems we do not need attacked from outside. We have plenty of our own supporters desperate to rip into the club about anything. I know of no other club whose own supporters seem desperate to find anything to rend their clothing in public. The guy made an arse of himself. We have a!l done it. Let the authorities take whatever action they see fit but calm down with the righteous patter. Too many coming on here with their oh so woke attitude.

  11. You haven’t understood why people generally want him to step down. It isn’t because the posts actually offend people like your ‘snowflake’ comment suggests. It’s because they are poor taste & don’t fit with the professionalism we should expect from our chairman.

  14. He should have done the right thing by now and stood aside…… all completely of his doing however impacts on club and smisa….. smisa values seem clear to me and perhaps need to be clear where they stand on this ….. off field had so many lows recently and this is a complete unwelcome embarrassment that should have been dealt with well before now. Can only assume he believes he can ride the storm….. if so another poor choice. Sad as we would all prefer to talk about on the park….. COYS on Saturday

  15. The fact Needham is still there just shows what a joke club we have become off the park. The fact he’s not done the right thing by now tells me everything I want to know about him. Not someone who should represent our club in any way shape or form never mind be chairman. Absolutely unbelievable. Oh and still NOTHING from smisa and St Mirren. What the feck is happening behind the scenes at our club. They are VERY fortunate Jim and the team are doing so well ON the park.

    Season tickets

    Bayern Club President, Uli Hoeness on the clubs season ticket prices. 🗣 “We could charge more than £104. Let's say we charged £300. We'd get £2m more in income, but what's £2m to us? 🗣 “In a transfer discussion you argue about that sum for five minutes. But the difference between £104 and £300 is huge for the fan. We do not think the fans are like cows, who you milk.” 🗣 “Football has got to be for everybody. That's the biggest difference between us and England.” Amazing to hear. 👏🏻👏🏻

  22. Your all missing the point, it doesn’t matter what he said or who it was directed towards, he acted unprofessionally and will have to face the music. You just need to look at previous chairman, none of them over posted stupid posts like the ones that John posted.

  23. Chairman was at the game today. Passed our bus in the car park. Gave us a wave and he got a great reception. As I said before only smisa pick the board and Chairman. Not The ****. Twitter. Dailly Record or the useless SPFL. I'm backing Mr Needham.

  24. Can't help but think we need to get another option in upfront in January. For all Main tries, for me he's simply not good enough and will never hit a decent amount of goals for us. We should try and offload 2 or possibly 3 of our strikers and try and some better quality in. At the moment this all that's holding us back from having a very decent season. Easier said than done.

  25. We were the better team throughout but unfortunately the lack of cutting edge has cost us the win again. Probably the best we've played in Perth in many a year.

    I heard Paisley Panda asked Broxi Bear if he would like a currant bun, but was misheard by Sammy the Tammy who reported him to the SFA and there's now an investigation going on. This is why he's not been at the stadium. It's all very hush hush, Kibble are trying to keep it quiet so it doesn't affect their reputation.

  29. Could someone point out and let Jim know we haven't won a league game this season when starting with Brophy and Main up front. We change it to 1 up.... We then draw with Hibernian at Easter Road then win 3 on the bounce Back to Brophy and Main this week and we get our worse performance of the season..... coincidence maybe... I don't think so

  30. Today was our worst result of the season so far. At home to bottom-feeders like Dundee are must-win games for us. These are the games that determine our season. Win these games, onwards and upwards into the top 6. Lose them and the bottom 6 and a relegation battle is looming. Hugely disappointing performance today, and not one of our players put in an acceptable shift. Tactics were pish, too many hopeful punts that Sweeney dealt with easily, so Goodwin must shoulder the blame too. Dundee's workrate was admirable and won them the 3 points they deserved.

  31. Very poor performance today. Huffed and puffed but no real quality in the final 3rd. I don't the think the Dundee keeper had a save of any note to make all afternoon. Just a wee reminder- when St Mirren are favourites to win easily, the opposite will happen.

  32. I hoped/expected the club to become more partisan when/if it became fan owned. The media etc aren't going to stand up for us , the way they do for the scum , so I'm all for us giving it back , yes even if it is a director. For me , there has been a complete overreaction in some places to this and if JN were to be punished , that would be bigger joke , given the drivel we've had to contend with from club employees over the years eg McNamara's public criticism of Goodwin , Hearts players/officials accusing our players (to this day) of lying down to Celtic etc

  33. Yes , but , like me , he has been a half-wit on the terraces for the last 50 years , and has witnessed up close what both the OF and their support are all about. He is a supporter , a member of Smisa like me . I would call them worse , in fact , I have on numerous occasions. It's like a biblical moment , which one shall be crucified for their lifetime of misdemeanors , Rangers or John Needham ?

  34. That’s because as we go into day 4 of this shit show the silence from St Mirren and Smisa is deafening! Not a single word! Amateurs! If they think they can stick their head in the sand and this will go away they are very much mistaken. Needham should have resigned by now and done the club and the supporters a favour. But if he won’t do the right thing then he needs sacked. Today.

  35. You've missed the point, communication is required to let everyone know exactly what is happening. I'm astounded that people are trying to distance him from comments he made before he was "in a position of authority within football". I certainly don't want a "punter" in charge of the football club. And trying write his "bridge" comment off as a joke shows a staggering lack of awareness of the implications. If anyone thinks it's a joke they really need to reevaluate what's funny, it's just crass patter.

  36. Why should we show loyalty and support to this man? I had hardly heard of him until a couple of years ago. He has got himself into this position and let the club, the fans and himself down massively. I don't feel a shred of loyalty is owed to him as he hasn't done anything to gain trust and certainly nothing to earn my respect.

  37. Has he not gone yet? Not necessary over the comments but he should go because of poor organisation, poor customer service and no obvious action to address these. TF should step down as well, we need a competent and resourceful chief exec to get some order into the club

    In fairness I don’t often laugh at either of you. I feel people making that claim are mostly covering feelings of anger/ frustration. BEK is largely right in a lot of arguments he’s had with your recently though. Your attitude on this website is rank rotten. You must be involved in almost every thread, you antagonise, you troll, you lash out & you add next to nothing. Almost every thread you throw poison in anger & bitterness, it’s pathetic.

    With the important numbers showing no increase, slightly decreasing TBH, why is wee Nicky wittering about further restrictions for hospitality? She's been shitting the bed for month's. Anyhow glad this thread's all but redundant, been an absolute belter of a thread. Cracking posts, reflecting people's views, whither guided by their political likes/dislikes, personal experiences and the utter dimwits who believe anything they find on the internet. Aye, a cracking thread and it's been a cracking way to pass the time over the last 20 months or so.

    St Johnstone v St Mirren

    I think Brophy can be that striker but why do we persist with Main when Brophy is unavailable? I know he had a few attempts yesterday but I never expect him to score. He lacks a killer instinct and sharpness. Dennis would be my second choice if Brophy is unfit. And as an aside I checked the clock yesterday when Dennis was brought on - 89mins and 12 secs. What the hell is the guy supposed to do in 48secs? As soon as Kane went off I thought we would bring him on as we didn't need two defensive midfielders against no forwards.

  44. Decent performance today. How we didn't win it I'll never know. Flynn and Power were excellent in midfield. But we miss that killer pass. Agree with previous post Tait is the best option at RWB. Hard to pick a MOM. But gonna go for Alan Power. Even tho he was booked early he still won most of his battles. But to be fair. Past marks for all. Coys

  45. It's a matter of record what John Needham did. Yet nobody has claimed responsibility for ‘discovering’ those tweets. Why would a Rangers fan trawl St Mirren directors before a game against SEVCO? Word is Mr Needham is a decent fellow who was standing up to Kibble’s Rangers/Celtic reps on a board that is now totally split. I was told at chance meeting with a SMiSA member this morning that it is common knowledge within SMiSA and the club that this was a Kibble fuelled attempt to ‘get’ John Needham off the board. I sincerely hope this is untrue but vice chairman is Mr Gillespie of Kibble. No wonder John Needham is keeping quiet. He may have done wrong but does not deserve this. Oddly and not challenged was Kibble’s decision to put out a statement as Kibble rather than as directors of our club. So quickly its difficult to believe any discussion had taken place at board level. They say their views were only ‘made known’. It was published on IBROX NEWS. Needham has apologised for his comments but it seems as if that isn’t enough for Kibble who are furious.‘We wish to completely disassociate ourselves from these very ill considered and unacceptable comments. These views were made known to St Mirren board members over the weekend’. Make up your own minds but lots of problems this season have lead directly back to Kibble. If true it is they who should go. I hope he stays.

  46. As Slash had stated in a few posts above, the issue here is that a man of his position/standing has written those words. The reality is if he still held that Senior post in the bank or indeed any other company he would be told to resign or fired, reason being writing things like that constitutes hate crime whilst simultaneously dragging our club name through the mud. Also sponsors to not like being associated with stuff like that. The reason no-one has heard from him or indeed any other board members is because his position is totally untenable.
