    Welcome Nathan Sheron

    Just seen that. Another defender. Good luck to the young man. Was hoping Akin Famewo would be back. Thought he and McCarthy had a good partnership. We need another striker as back up to Obika. But I guess Gys and Goody have that in hand. Coys Goodwin confirming he's brought him in as a holding mid who can provide backup the the centre halves. So we've definitely still in the market for a centre back or two.

    The 3 Monthly Spend

    This month we are proposing something a bit different for members to consider. We are putting up just one option for you to vote on but we are proposing using both this spend and the October spend in one go. The project we are proposing is to provide general financial support to the St Mirren youth academy. The effects of Covid-19 have impacted football in many ways with nearly every club forced into making cost savings to try to offset the loss of revenue. Some clubs have chosen to reduce or mothball their academies but we at SMISA believe a strong, thriving youth academy is vital to St Mirren’s present and future. In a previous survey of SMISA members, you also indicated that supporting youth development ought to be the priority for the £2 spend sums. With the club working towards attaining elite status within the Scottish FA’s Project Brave structure, this fund would enable the academy to continue operating at full strength and to also purchase some much-needed training equipment. To that end we are proposing using the £7400 in the July pot now, and then in October the sum available, (likely to be similar) to help head of youth Allan McManus and his team at Ralston. Committing two pots in one go will give the academy team a bit more certainty over budgets and the ability to plan ahead during a time of financial uncertainty. Should the project not receive majority backing the sums will remain in the pot for possible use at a future date. Voting via Very Connect at https://tinyurl.com/yd6j8qow will be open until July 17. If you have any questions about this or anything else please get in touch via [email protected] Regards, The SMISA committee

    Great article by Bill Leckie. He’s (Craig Gordon) also bang on when he expresses his dismay that Scottish football hasn’t been able to sort itself out despite its problems not meaning a toss compared to what’s going on in the wider world. Without wishing to pick an argument with one of the game’s good guys, though, I have to say that, if he’s searching for a reason why it’s all gone so pear-shaped, it’s right under his nose; right there in his boyhood club’s boardroom. Hearts are the ones who finished bottom of the table despite spending top-three money on players. Hearts are the ones who panicked and demanded those players take pay cuts before the government even had the chance to introduce the furlough scheme. Hearts backed the wrong horse in the vote on ending the season early, then again on the vote calling for an independent probe into how that decision was reached. A reconstruction plan that would have saved their bacon fell on its backside, even though their own sugar-mummy Ann Budge chaired the committee who came up with it. They dragged United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers into their legal fight to have the final tables declared void, a situation that has left Raith fearing they’ll be unable to risk a six-figure legal bill and will simply be crossing their fingers that the decision goes their way. As if this wasn’t heavy-handed enough, Budge then nicked Robbie Neilson from Tannadice as her new manager — a hefty investment which, along with the deal to bring Gordon in from Celtic, is an almighty boot in the stones for every employee forced into a drop in wages when Budge pleaded poverty. I know Jambos fans will be sick of reading this, maybe even as sick as I am of writing it, but it has to be put on record that, despite dominating the headlines for pretty much all of these 115 locked-down days, their club have produced not one positive, winning idea. Good God, even when the hugely-generous James Anderson offered a donation of millions to make sure no clubs went down the pan, all Budge had to do was introduce him to Neil Doncaster and let them shake hands, but even then she managed to turn it into a fight. Like Rangers chairman Douglas Park before her, she’s read the room wrong time and again. She’s been fighting shadows, punching smoke. Plus, when she and her lawyers were throwing their weight around by plunging the plans of the three lower league winners into disarray, why didn’t they have the courage to claim that Celtic shouldn’t have been named Premiership champions? After all, if they’re actually saying relegation shouldn’t have counted, how can the title stand? Sorry, but there are more holes in Budge’s defence than . . . well, there were in her back four all last season, which really is saying something. And, for the umpteenth time, let me also say without fear of contradiction that, if they’d come off the bottom by winning at Paisley in the last, pivotal match before the shutters came down, we’d never have heard a peep from them. So, sure, there will be bad blood whatever happens now. But it’s Hearts who spilled it. Sure, it’ll forever be a crying shame that they, Partick Thistle and Stranraer were condemned to the drop when they still had enough games left to save themselves. But there are also countless businesses who might never open their doors again, tens of thousands of workers sweating over when they’ll earn a crust again. All Hearts were asked to do was suck up some rank bad luck and agree to kick a ball around in a different division come August — a division they’d be odds-on favourites to win. Whatever happens next in this sorry, sordid saga, the fact that they preferred to cause chaos for everyone else around them will stain those famous maroon shirts for a long time to come." https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/sport/football/5777365/craig-gordon-hearts-relegation-row-bill-leckie

    We might be fortunate. We could top the League after one match if we are the biggest winners in Week One if we thrash Livingston. A second wave of the Virus may arrive on August 3rd and put soccer into lockdown again. We would be crowned TITLE WINNER'S and therefore would represent. Scotland in the Champions League in Season 21/22. Am I havering ?

    Oh FFS you are not even trying now are you? This was a test to compare cloth masks to using medical masks amongst health workers who were in daily contact with covid patients. NHS workers used the masks every shift for 4 weeks. How on earth does that relate to what we are being asked to do? I don't like being told to wear these masks any more than you do but you are hardly helping by posting utter shite.

    Effect of Coronavirus

    Went down to Aldi today for shopping - well, wine and beer, that counts no? - and there were around 10 sitting at the car park wall with takeaway pints from The Wallace. Came out and the polis had arrived to move them on. The drinkers couldn't seem to understand that: The car park wasn't a beer garden Beer gardens weren't open yet anyway It's been illegal to drink in public for years in Renfra. I'm not really sure which of these three is the stupidest the polis had to respond to... Also bought three pints and enjoyed them at home, nice to have a draught beer after so long.

    That will be the reality of the situation. There's not a chance that anyone will stick to social distancing on the road to pishedness. I was watching the BBC this morning and they were in a pub that plays music and they've been told to keep the music low, as shouting spreads the virus more than when you're speaking. Again, the reality is, music or not, the more people drink, generally the louder they get. You can just imagine someone with a few swallies in them being asked to "keep the noise down". Fortunately our resident foot stamping non-conformist won't be in the pub, otherwise things might get a bit "tasty".

    Coronavirus

    with a declining R number, a steady overall decrease on the fatality rate and number of new cases and further opening of the economy then the time is right. as a safety professional, i know that the amount of time that people tend to adhere to a precaution is limited unless there is a structure there to enforce it and that timing is everything.. the added carrot of greater free movement in towns and cities is also an incentive tagged on to a requirement so it's good psychology Bottom line is that the mask culture is here to stay and to put it in place when things are really bad is tempting people to disregard it when the situation improves (see english beaches) so stepping this up at a good point with good news stories makes very good sense

    There are actually reasons for this, in the article I posted a link to. Whether you agree with the views of the epidemiologist and infectious disease specialist, is entirely up to you. if you've adopted an entrenched view on certain aspects of this experience you are not unlikely to change now. At the start of all this I didn't wear a face covering and was quite dismissive of others who did. However, as the situation worsened, I figured that it wouldn't do me any harm to wear one and I still do. Not because I think that it will protect me, I hasten to add. I just think that it's common courtesy to reduce the chances of me infecting others. It doesn't cause me any hassle whatsoever, other than steaming up my specs, as I'm a specky bastard. Also, are the people in England, who have to wear face coverings on transport taking it up the jacksie from Boris too?

    I have no issue with either of the gentlemen mentioned. Shull has his political leanings as we all do, and he’s very much entitled to that. He also has his opinions on the OF and ticket prices (which can be repetitive) I can’t say I’ve always agreed with Shull on some of his views (Craig Samson being one and probably his views on the Old/newish firm) FS has in my opinion made some valid points on many a topic, and again in my opinion takes the piss at times with other forum members. My only gripe on this site is when things go way off topic and it becomes a tit for tat tirade of personal insults. My choice is either to read them, or not. In general I believe them to be two good eggs, though I don’t know them personally.

    Back in January we paid a deposit for a holiday with EasyJet for September in Kos, just paid the balance today. I reckon by September it will be routine for Kos OR it will be cancelled because C-19 is out of control. EasyJet have been good for refunds so either we get some (safe!) r'n'r in the sunshine or we get our money back.

    It’s ironic that rather than opening up like the rest of Europe, the SNP are trying to be more English than the English in keeping us in lockdown. You couldn’t make it up! Nicola Sturgeon has shamelessly been been using the crisis to further the nationalist agenda. But most worrying is the fact that they have enjoyed imposing a fascist police state regime on the people of Scotland and don’t want to give up that control.
