  1. Matchday Mascots (stmirren.com) Maybe a missed opportunity to raise cash. As the link shows it is possible for more that one mascot,indeed have seen games with more than 2. Seen some teams walk out with a mascot per player,so if demand is there,club could facilitate to meet that demand. May be down to a lack of supervision of the kids if numbers too many or too much a hassle to make easy money and someone happy

    Negative pish. Let's see what Gallagher does on the pitch. Manager also deserves a chance to prove himself with a squad of players he chose. If they're both proving to be pants by Nov/Dec then criticism would be acceptable.

  3. To be honest I do not care. The club is best it has ever been run and we look at top 6 each season as opposed to survival from even the championship and going out of business. One of the top run clubs in Europe and lots to look forward to so I don't see relevance.

  4. I’m just about to cancel my membership. It just hasn’t worked for me . Seemed like a good idea at the time but when you factor in the fact you’re still paying close season, games getting shifted around , midweek etc , it means your adding about 2-3 quid onto each pint . Eg, only one home game in March last season . the charge for visitors and the limit on numbers put my family off attending also . Its a good facility and I fully understand the costs incurred by the original members but I feel the current membership model could do with a shake up.

  5. Run of the mill win. Side wasn't anything like it will be for league games. Lots of youth players in each half . Shaugnessy and Tanser strolled the second half . Good to see Peter Urminsky getting a chance. Don't think the crowd would be over 400 . A few saints fans there. Enjoyed the game as I've missed the football. Having a couple of beers before going back to the hotel which regrettably means I'll have to get up during the night. The joys of getting older

    If Main starts as he finished the season and Brophy stays fit and there is someone to hit the bye line and get crosses in …….there will be goals.

  9. Lots of aspects of this article ring a bell with my younger days. I stayed in tenements all of my childhood, "closes" were the normal, we had wash houses in the back, not really used for washing, more as "dens" or storage. Every neighbour took their turn to brush/mop the close and stairs, a pride in how clean it was. An outside toilet, scary at times, shared between 3 houses. My parents bed was in a "recess", the great storm had the three of us huddling in their bed, a feeling of safety as the chimneys came crashing down outside. A coal fire, making paper "sticks" to use as kindling, using the newspaper to create a draught to help it roar into life. Ginger bottles were a great source of added income. Aye, not a bad place to live, plenty of friends and neighbours to look out for you if you needed it.

  10. Murray surprised me. He is looking fitter than I expected and, let's be honest, his opponent didn't put a foot wrong and only two poor games made the difference. Andy also looked fresh enough to continue if another set was required. Maybe not quite time for the slippers.

  11. Tony was a great player. Especially in his first spell with us. He drove our midfield forward, socks at his ankles, no shin guards. Great leader on the park. Scored a few goals. Flanked usually by Lex Richardson and Billy Stark it was a terrific midfield three supported by a winger. Personally I was gutted when he left, but once Fergie and McGarvey left the club he went south. Don’t think he made the right choice in Bristol City. When he came back he was again a regular, but had personal issues with his son and experienced some bad injuries. One in particular was a serious broken jaw/check bone as a result of getting pummelled into a Perspex wall at the 6 a side tournament that used to be held. He had options of joining Celtic or Aberdeen with Fergie when he left Bristol but our directors played a master stroke in bringing him back as there was a house in Paisley he always admired and it had come up for sale at the right time. He was a far better player than Shuggie. Very unfortunate not to have been capped by Scotland but he was on the fringes on the national team. I wish there was more footage of the old days. Best find the Marchin In footage that was uploaded on the site by Div. Cant find it anymore.

    I did mate and the old Who’s on first sketch remains funny to this day. My post was poking fun because you appeared to be correcting someone for saying who instead of whom, but you then incorrectly said Whose instead of who’s. What is it they say…..if you have to explain a joke then it isn’t funny 😩😩 I just cannae help myself when someone who is correcting someone’s grammar makes a f**k up themselves 🤣🤣

    The Politics Thread

    I think Scotland is as capable of any other small country of being successful and I'm 50/50 on independence On Ireland thought my wife is Irish and I'm over and back all the time. Their housing market was destroyed by being members of the Euro as interest rates were set for Germany and France and were way too low for Ireland. Their healthcare is poor compared to Scotland. Its private also and costs a fortune. There education system has way less resources than Scotland but the outcomes are no different which tells another story ? I very much doubt Scotland will get a say on whether it joins the Euro or not despite what Nicola Sturgeon says. When we join and are in a position to join is also an interesting issue. The austerity measures that have been applied in Ireland at different points over the last 15 years have been way more painful than Scotland has suffered ? Its not all sweetness and light and independence will be a huge gamble but may be worth it in the long run ?

  14. It wasn’t a democratic vote. it was a “non binding referendum” which presented a stupidly close result, based on a minimal representation of the GBP…. that was then accepted and implemented by corrupt and inept politicians of both big parties. It WAS a mistake, though. That bit is accurate.

    If ever to be considered, let teams not competing in Europe play in their own respective League Cups. (no more old firm).Why should one lot gain financially at the expense of others.

    If you’re hunting for goals, no need to look much further than the 6 feet 6inches tall replacement for… …the Bank of Gary Mackenzie… I suggest… the Bank of Declan Gallagher! (He’s not prolific, but I’d hate to be defending with a big target like DG colliding round my penalty box.) Ignore me… this is just the usual stupid pre-season insane optimism kicking in…. Sigh….

    Motherwell have European football to look forward to this season. That helps a lot. I still think we'll sell a couple of hundred more. Plus folk may take out the finance option and pay for them monthly. Not everyone can afford £300+ upfront, particularly if they are purchasing more than one.

  26. I wonder if the person or persons who made these changes were the same ones who thought “managed motorways” were a good idea and thought taking out the need to master reversing a car will improve driving standards and safety . 🤔

    Calm down 😂 As soon as McGinn was made available by Hibs, he looked to be a good fit for us. Of course he’s due a spot in this thread. I only visit B&WA for the speculation thread these days but it’s posts like this to initiate bickering that make it totally insufferable at times.

    I know Sevco fans who voted Yes and Celtic fans who voted No. It's not as simple as the team you support although, for the simple among them, it is. Anyway, I don't know why you think Faraway is a Sevco fan, he's obviously a Celtic fan. [emoji16]

  32. It was called a "once in a generation" vote, not "lifetime" and that was repeatedly said to be the personal opinion of the person/people calling it that. It was also said at the time that that only applied if there were no major material changes - oh, look, Brexit. After the union of the crowns in 1603 (not sure how long after, but obviously before 1707), there was apparently a vote in the Scottish Parliament about "merging" with England and it was rejected, maybe there shouldn't have been another. Maybe there should only ever be one GE and we can just stick with the result. This every 5 years carry on is obviously just a joke, it should at least be for a generation/lifetime. There you go, Boris as PM for the rest of your life (or maybe his). Out of curiosity, how long is a "generation" or a "lifetime" in your opinion and how do you arrive at your answer(s)?

  34. I'm just waiting for @Oldfellow's match report. People slag @faraway saint, but when he does go to a game (admittedly about as frequently as the planets align) he gives us a running commentary of what's happening.

    When you see the difference Robinson made to Main, then there is no reason he cant do the same with Gallagher

    Indeed our home goals return was poor at best. I did like the partnership of grieve and main and the use of two up front. Let's hope that with the additional pace added to the team we will be more decisive pushing forward. Last season I thought we took to long on the ball and continually passed back or side ways.

    Highway Code Changes

    Slightly off topic, but due to the magnitude of arseholery displayed by some piece of refuse this morning................. I had just turned onto Johnstone High Street from Laighcartside Street after popping in to Lidl, when I noticed a black BMW horsing it along the High street behind me. He must have been doing 50 mph easily. I got to the car wash half way up Thorn Brae, where there was a short queue of cars, as a bus had stopped across from the station and slowed to s stop. Said Arsehole showed no signs of slowing and instead, veered onto the other side of the road and proceeded to drive all the way up to the Silver Tassie at the same speed. There was a woman directly in his path, who if she hadn't slowed down to a stop, would have faced a head on collision. The Arsehole turned up Overton Road, never to be seen again. As I drove by the women who had stopped, she looked completely stunned.
