  1. Marcus Fraser is a legend! My brother and I used to have season tickets, but gave them up when my son was born as I couldn't justify going on a Saturday. My son is old enough and decided this season he wanted to go, so my brother, my son and I got season tickets again. We got selected in the ballot to go to the Hearts game where my son said his favourite players were Main and Fraser. Said his most favourite was Fraser. After the game he said he wanted boots like Fraser wore in the game. I hunted high and low on the internet to find them to see if did kids sizes, to find nothing. I contacted the club to see if they could help me figure out the model. They said they spoke to him, where he said they were old and no longer can get them online. Yesterday a package came for my son with the boots in it with his name on them and Marcus' autograph. He was over the moon. I contacted him directly to thank him. He was so nice to respond and when speaking to the club they said it was all Marcus' idea. Solid player and a true gent. I just wanted to share a positive since there has been a lot of negative about the club.

  2. Really disappointed with the way the club has behaved and (again) communicated over this. Firstly all season ticket holders are told they can get into the game, but the general sale information is just bolted on to the end of that announcement, anyone visiting the club website as a PAYG punter wouldn't even know they can buy tickets for the match on Sunday. Very poor IMO. As far as the seating plan is concerned it looks very much like every stand except the Main Stand is fully open with zero restrictions - so why not just say that instead of "every season ticket holder will get in"? Such a strange way of communicating what should have been very welcome (and overdue) news!? We still don't have season ticket cards - which is another shambles - we've had 18 months to sort out our new ticketing platform and get things all in place - yet everything has been rushed at the very last minute meaning season tickets were late - we had the re-registration mess - and now we don't even have our season ticket cards going into September FFS. Yes we can apparently use our barcode to get in - you think everyone will still have that to hand? Will everyone know that's what they're supposed to do? I expect long queues at the gates on Sunday with inevitable delays as folk try and get in. Ridiculous. And as for the treatment of the away fans - frankly I'm just embarassed about how we've played that. Even if the whole of the main stand was ruled out as a red zone (which it isn't) there would be plenty room in the South and West Stands to accommodate every St.Mirren fan who wants to go to this game, leaving the North Stand for the away supporters. Just because we got shafted by Celtic last weekend doesn't mean we should take the same approach. It's absolutely shite behaviour to be locking out away supporters, not to mention the loss of revenue we'll take from such a selfish approach. We're now going to have plenty of available seats in the West and South, whilst locking out the away fans from the North. These are not the actions of a well run competent top flight football club. IMO.

    The capacity debacle

    I think John tried to explain the situation, but I'm not convinced his statement really helped. We are told that we have to leave two seats free and can only use every other row in our stand because of the distance between rows etc... That's all well and good in isolation but when you see several hundred fans in both the home and away end standing right next to each other last weekend just a few miles up the road in Motherwell then it doesn't really stack up. Lanarkshire is operating under level 0 restrictions at the moment the same as Renfrewshire is, so something isn't right here. We've got Glasgow City Council offering FULL CAPACITY at Ibrox and Parkhead next midweek, 50000 & 60000 respectively, yet we are supposed to swallow that we can only have 1039 in our stadium this weekend, when the advertised lowest guideline for level 0 is 2000? It doesn't add up at all and you can completely understand why fans are not happy. I'm not expecting the chairman of the club to throw the Council under the bus here but something isn't right, St.Mirren have been given an absolutely terrible deal here and to compound all of that the club's communication with it's most loyal fans on the matter has been an absolute shambles. There isn't even an acknowledgement on the official website that the ballot has been drawn FFS! Season ticket holders who didn't get a ticket are left completely in the dark, why didn't they get an email too even if it was just to say "Sorry you didn't get one this time". Nothing at all! These are the punters who pitched up £300+ last season and who didn't get to set foot in the stadium ONCE, yet we were asked to pony up the same £300+ again this season and almost 3000 of us jumped through several hoops to do so. Then we don't even get a proper explanation of why we're still locked out, we aren't told the ballot has been run and we don't get a courtesy email telling us we've not been fortunate enough to get a ticket! It's all very very basic stuff here and frankly it's not good enough. Even the Season Ticket TV access on Saturday is a mess. I've read the article on the website telling me I need to use a new login and password for this season, yet I can absolutely guarantee that my 76 year old season ticket holding dad will be utterly confused as to what the fuck is going on - he doesn't read the website and he doesn't visit social media - so how the fuck is he supposed to know how to watch the game - a game that he has paid for the same as all the rest of us mugs. An absolute utter shambles.

  6. This is the result of being safe last season and reaching two semi finals. The cash that brought in and the fact it's raised our profile has, IMO, made these signings possible. Anybody who think last season wasn't a success should possibly have a wee lie down.

  9. I'm surprised more hasn't been said about our first goal yesterday. It was a fantastic team goal finished superbly by Dennis. From Alnwick to Dennis in around 15 seconds with mostly one touch football. A masterclass in fast, freeflowing football.

  12. Not me.. StJ out played us three times, we were awful twice in Perth and we won in Paisley in the last 10mins against 10 men. I don’t think we were negative today but our inability to score goals is what cost us we are just not good enough at the top end of the pitch to be a top team and we also don’t score enough from midfield Mcgarth has obviously scored goals but 90% have been penalties. Our goalkeeper and defence is what put us in a position to be top 6 and I think all bar Fraser are contracted for next season so we now need to start looking at the midfield and the strikers if we want to take that next step.

  13. Dennis is a fantastic player. Scored goals everywhere he's been. Had an unfortunate beginning to his time in the stripes due to injury/illness. He is quick, clever and can strike a ball. His control and shot today for his goal showed us his true quality. That was in case you missed the way he set Flynn clear on Wednesday before he set himself up and pointed where he wanted the ball for the 5th goal. He also hooked the ball over his shoulder to set Connolly away for the 4th. We have a real baller here and like all forwards thrives on confidence. Imo he now has this and will be a great asset for us.

  14. 0-0 final score, what a performance, not a great watch but to a man the effort was immense. No real options on the bench, just the 11 who went out were asked to defend for almost the entire 90 minutes, and they did. (one late sub) Lyness and Shaughnessy probably deserve a mention but that performance required every man to do his bit. A point we never seen coming and very welcome after a worrying week. Also Goodwin deserves credit getting that from his players. Oh, elvis, dry yer eyes.

I tell you what, I'd be knocking every f**king door, fighting every 'no' and chasing every lead to make sure as many supporters as possible who have already shelled out hard earned money for season tickets were getting in. I wouldn't be sitting on my hands going 'maybe on August 9th it will be better' like that piss-weak opening gambit of a statement from our new chairman.

  20. McAllister had his best game for ages today. Great contributions to both goals. He even recovered from an injury. I said way back when Dennis made his debut that he looked a like a player who knew his way towards goal, if he got the service. Fantastic to see him delivering the goods. Thought every player played their roles to perfection. Kudos to JG for his hard work in sussing out the green arse cheek's system. As I'm in congratulatory mode, it would seem churlish of me to miss out praising Shane Duffy for his abject shiteness. So, well done Shane, you overpaid donkey.

  21. I think Dennis should get a lot more credit for his goal. It may appear for as a simple tap in but he orchestrated it. He was a lot further back when Flynn came into the box but instead of standing waiting for the ball he pointed to where he wanted the ball to go and evaded his marker to get there to tap it over the line. An intelligent striker's goal.

  24. Rosalind was in touch with me yesterday and asked if I could post this message to Saints fans, one she wrote back in January of this year. Was supposed to be posted on the club site but for whatever reason that hasn't happened yet so she wanted to get this out to her fellow supporters ahead of the new season. To Saint Mirren FC, their staff and my fellow supporters. As a lifelong fan and supporter of Saint Mirren FC, I would like to say that it has been an honour and privilege to have served the fans and the club for over thirty years. Serving my fellow supporters was one of the greatest opportunities I have had in my life. There have been some great times and some very challenging times but being in the position to both serve my fellow supporters and being able to watch my team playing on match days I can say that the great times have outweighed the challenging times. Now that I am a grandmother to two adorable boys with a third grandson on the way I have arrived at the view that it is now time for me to be with my family and have therefore decided not to extend the contract. I would like to thank my incredible staff and family who have worked tirelessly both behind the scenes and in the kiosks to serve the fans on match days. Their commitment and energy made an incredible difference when things were tough. I would also like to thank Saint Mirren staff and Board of Directors both past and present for their valued support. I am now looking forward to attending the games as a fan and enjoying your company in the supporters bar and in the stand on match day Update: Grandson No 3 has arrived and is doing well.

  25. We should genuinely be making more of this 1,000 fans in the ground issue. It's borderline scandalous. There seems to be no real issue on 30%, 40%, 50% filled grounds at this point where we seem to be either moping about how sad it is fans aren't getting back in numbers we'd like, or saying f**k all. The fans have an absolute right to know who is making these decisions, why they are being made and why the club aren't fighting tooth and nail against any decisions made on 'social distancing' guidelines given that these don't appear to apply nearly as stringently to many, many other clubs very local to us. Fir Park will be 47% full on Saturday for their game vs Hibs...St. Mirren Park was (allegedly) only allowed to be 12% full yesterday and only 12% full a week next Saturday. Dundee, a city that had the outright highest infection rate in Europe until only a couple of weeks ago have applied for and expect to be granted increased capacity for our match on Saturday. And rightly so, who can blame them? And again, likely no away fans. So why is Fitzpatrick showing up on Radio Scotland yesterday sounding like a beaten man when it comes to more supporters being let in? Why are the club not publicly questioning these decisions? This was packaged up by our SLO the other day as being a social distancing issue but that's clearly not true at all. I get some grounds have more seats, exits, facilities etc, but definitely not a disparity of 12% capacity in one ground allowed vs 47% in another. Who ever ultimately made the decision, be it SMFC or Renfrewshire Council owe the supporters a full and frank explanation. Why should we still be balloting to see who f**king gets to go to games and who doesn't when other clubs are fighting tooth and nail to get ALL fans who want a ticket through the doors?

  26. Hi gents, Another town fan here. We're being kept very much in the dark over transfer fees- The new owners are keeping their cards close to their chests to avoid revealing how much of the new pension fund they are spending! The general consensus however is that the fee was less than £300k as we have been heavily linked with a rejected £350k bid for the Dundee keeper Benjamin Siegrist. Always had a lot of time for St Mirren. Would love the clubs to be able to arrange a yearly match at alternating grounds. Best of luck for the season.

  32. We didn't lose the game yesterday on the park; we lost it on the drawing board. I find it hard to believe that our manager failed abysmally to recognise the limitation of Ernhanon, MacPherson and Mason's ability to confront the strength of the Livi side especially the current form of these players. I'm not blaming the players. The substitutions made in the second half was symptomatic of the realisation that the manager had made a huge mistake. I think the biggest impact of this result and the way it was lost will be on the morale of the players. Those subs who came on will feel they should have been chosen for the kick-off and for most of the other players seeing that mistake, their morale will have also taken a hit while looking at the whole picture. Our latest signing, Brophy; what will he be thinking after being subbed and who never received the service he should have got. His morale too will have weakened. I laid in bed last night thinking about all of this and I still find it difficult to come to terms with it. Given all the enthusiastic effort those fans made in decorating the town with our colours I feel truly sorry. Come Wednesday if we get beat this will underline Goodwin's failure yesterday. We are more than capable of beating Utd but not before their morale has been re-inflated.

  33. I agree Billy They are all hard work and pressence at set plays Goodwin bought in to the media and tbf a few of us myself included Obika and Durmus had to start as they have drive and look to go forward They aren't great but as Livi have shown you don't need to be Foley or Flynn should have came on today as the young players were too easy bullied We were beaten before a ball was kicked today and that was down to the manager i'm afraid

  37. The current set up has all the hallmarks of a failing organisation. While everything wasn't sunshine and roses under GLS, much of that related to one bad decision (appointing Stubbs) and the length of time it took to recover from that. Other issues were minor in comparison to what we have now. Then, we had monthly communication from the chairman, low turnover of background staff and while we might complain there could have been greater innovation commercially to maximise income, generally the fans felt valued. Now, we have high turnover of staff, people being appointed to high profile positions and then leaving two months later, Board members resigning and fans finding this out only by doing Google searches, some people in positions of authority not even employed by us, boundaries blurred between Kibble and us, a board at war with each other, trust gone to the extent lawyers letters are allegedly being sent, a chairman making dodgy tweets and being fined as a result, total non communication, no direct answers to legitimate questions about the early season ticketing shambles and capacity debacle, Kibble appointees to the Board failing to attend not one but two meetings with SMISA members, SMISA trying to fill a vacant position on the Board by undemocratic means, and the fans, who are meant to own the club, being kept in the dark by our so called representatives. These are not short term teething problems but systemic issues; the whole thing is a shambles and we need to rip it up and start again. Time for Basil the ostrich to wake up to what's happening.

  38. Something that's a bit of a rarity for us in the top flight. Racking up 3 on the spin this early on would be massive and would put real daylight between us and the increasingly isolated bottom 3 which should always be number one priority before we start looking up the table.

  39. I must be one of the few people who really rated Cammy, and I believe he will be a top midfielder and will defo get into the St Johnstone team. Thankfully he cant play against us this season. Next season he probably wont have to.... He was never given a decent run in the team. A centre half was used in midfield on Saturday ahead of him !! And this when other midfielders were out suspended etc....... When that happens you know your time is up. Really not best pleased with JG right now. Saturday was shocking......6 at the back and long punts up the park..... Going to be a long season. 10th is looking a tough shout never mind top 6. And I normally an optimist lol😄

    Great turnaround in our season by the lads now let’s deal these lads in and make sure they aren’t picked off for a nominal fee from Hibs and the like. Let’s hope the board are already well down the line with the lads out of contract this year. Obika, Durmus, Connolly and for me if it takes three players wages get Jake Doyle Hayes signed up if we can. When he’s on it we’re on it. Lads different class.

    The capacity debacle

    Interesting to see one of the journos suggesting that the relationship between the club and Renfrewshire Council is not particularly healthy right now. No reasons given why that might be but the inference is that the Council are quite happy to stiff us on the capacity issue. I did have some sympathy over the restrictions but having seen the crowd at Fir Park yesterday with large groups all sitting or standing side by side with no masks in sight it's very difficult to comprehend why we are being served such severe restrictions other than it being for petty political point scoring.

    John McGinn

    Privileged to watch this guy rise from being a wee bit in the stripes to Scotland stalwart and if not for Robertson, probable Captain. Top Premiership player and handsome bugger with royalty among his fans. He truly is living the dream and fair play to the lad... He has worked bloody hard to make it happen! I remember years ago, Saints v Celtic at home. Meatball had Scott Brown in his back pocket the whole game. He went in for one crunching "hard but fair" tackle on Brown... Who turned to the referee pleading for protection! McGinn just looked at Brown, put his fingers to his bottom lip, and mocked the Celtic skipper with a wibble wibble wibble gesture! Class. Used to be on YouTube but damned if I can find it. I said back then, he was not just a successor to Brown in the Scotland midfield, but would have been an improvement and one to build our midfield around for years to come and a potential Captain. Celtic fans scoffed and mocked... Bet they wish they had opened the biscuit tin after all! Proud of McGinn and privileged to have witnessed his development. What a guy. [emoji41][emoji1022]󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
