Youth team regular

Youth team regular (4/14)



  1. Correct me If I am wrong but on the 27th January the St Mirren Football Club AGM will be held. SMISA are shareholders of the club and may well hold their own AGM.
  2. Correct and Jimmy Greaves. Tottenham Hotspur v Ipswich Town at White Hart Lane 4th April 1964.
  3. Since you seem to have been a good boy recently here is a photo of one of your favourites
  4. Great photo. So much in it. Two Street cleaners. Looks like they missed the large bin when emptying theirs. My Aunt worked in O'Mays the Bakers. Took the same "shortcut" many times as the girl passing the Weighbridge. Will stand corrected but from memory was the scrap merchant opposite the footbridge called Arthurs and before them was it Rae the Coal Merchant? Looking at the aerial photo, there could be a siding from just passed the Abercorn Station and if i am right it would have serviced the coal merchants. (Just like Canal Street). I have a vague recollection of a siding. The other Weighbridge was in Ferguslie main road. Correct rabuddies not our comprehensive.

    New director

    I agree with you that fan ownership will never succeed but not for the reason you have suggested. I must defend your suggestion of clique committee's. All type of clubs have the "experts" who sit on their hands and always know better than the "clique" committe's who can have difficult decisions (especially currently) to make. The experts have the opportunity to join the committee, if elected, on an annual basis.
  6. Ok you've caught me in your web. I cannot recall attending any AGM, and I have attended many, that a Director has chosen to not attend. I would consider it an unwritten duty for a Director to attend an AGM and for you to think otherwise puts some doubt in my mind about your lack of knowledge of business etiquette. If that is not the case it proves that anybody saying black you would automatically say white.
  7. Forgive me for deleting parts of your post which was interesting. I would like just to comment on a couple of parts. Just for clarification so please feel free to call me wrong. I believe unless it had changed over the years the Carrs paid a fixed price for the kiosks to St Mirren. Hospitality a different ball game. The product supplied since their "retirement" is far from satisfactory. I like my bovril hot. As I said in an earlier post Chris Stewart on the 24th November remained as our Company Secretary and the Cardinal Sin not mentioning our Tony along with Campbell and Tommy. (Is the high ceiling for hanging purposes?) Could I ask if you could indicate what side of the fence the directors are on. Taken from Company Information prior to last year's AGM. Wardrop, Scott, Fitzpztrick, Stewart, Riley, Gillespie, MacMillan.
  8. I can confirm Chris Stewart, a partner of Digby Brown, on the 24th November was Company Secretary of St Mirren Football Club and intended to continue in that role.
  9. People in glass houses!! I refer you to your message on 1st December. As you now know I have no allegiance to either Kibble or Smisa and my witchhunt (as you call it) is based on his inappropriate comments on social media which in my opinion does not meet my expectations of a Chairman of St Mirren Football Club. If he resigned, as he should have done immediately, why can't Smisa not democratically elect another chairman? Where do the rest of the directors of the St Mirren Board who are divorced from both parties stand? If he is allowed to continue as chairman, will he be welcomed (or even allowed to enter) along the road. Whether their right or wrong that cannot be acceptable. How embarrassing.
  10. Does any motion need to be lodged, for example a month beforehand? Can be done on the night providing the motion is seconded.
  11. An EGM is not needed. A motion could be called at the AGM which which has still to be announced, but is required to take place on or prior to the 20th January 2022. O forgot the annual bit did not apply last year since the meeting was held 13 months after the previous years Annual Meeting.
  12. You are well of the mark. To put your mind at rest, not that I have to explain, but I do object to you questioning my passion for St Mirren. Lets just say my support goes back to the days of Walker, Lapsley etc., (In case you are to young that was 1957) And continues to this day. I have no thoughts on your speculation (since you have not provided proof) on Kibble actions. Me, an employee of Kibble is a joke. The closest connection I have or had to Kibble was walking (or sometimes running) 4 times past their front door on the Greenock Road on a Saturday to and from the Racecourse to play football. Neither do I have any connection with Smisa. Never been a member, so no nothing about their arrangements for representatives to the Board. I am not outraged (past that), your words, but I do expect the Chairman of an Institution that I have been a member of for many years to represent me in a professional manner. Nearly forgot. Not me that leaked the tweet since I not on it. ( To easy to cause problems!) Please don't loose the point, It has nothing to do with the "joke" THAT IS NOT THE BIG PICTURE but his lack of thought of the consequence is. From my experience, Companies that I have been employed by have standards that their employees or their representatives are expected to abide by or suffer the consequences. (Failure normally led to a sacking) If our "man" has the best interest of OUR St Mirren at heart he shall do the right thing and resign before his disciplinary meeting later to-day and not drag the club down any further.
  13. I am a St Mirren fan but certainly not weird. Your comment is derogatory to many "fans". It seems the reason he should have resigned is being lost. He should have resigned when his stupidity came to light and I do not buy " he has apologised" which may only have been on the advice of more sensible persons. The damage had already been done. A person representing a Company, in this case St Mirren Football Club Limited, is expected to maintain certain standards on behalf of its shareholders and in this case a crass joke on a social media platform indicates that he is unsuitable for the position.
