    Anybody ever been refused service in a pub because they'd been to a funeral that day?

    Happened to myself and a couple of mates last night.

    When Michelle ran The Anchor she didn't allow funeral parties, the thinking being that at least 1 person would get emotional and start a fight. Now that Nicky and Jo run the pub I don't know if that policy is still in force.

    From memory in Upper Gallowhill we had Parducci's, Trento, Geordie and occasionally Walls.

    That's also my recollection.

    I mind one time my Dad had got a British Linen Bank £1 note as part of his wages. It was unusual in that it had a lot of blue in its design. He said "take it out to the van and if you get change of a fiver ill give you a pound."

    Now I knew Geordie wouldn't be daft enough to fall for that and, even if he did, he'd pull me up on it next time he saw me so I suggested we waited till the Walls van came round.

    Sure enough I got change of a fiver and I got my £1 which back in 1976 was a fortune.

    I honestly can’t remember when Saints featured in an away televised League game that does not include playoff match against United.

    The Cody Cooke hat-trick game at Dens was on BT Sport.

    However, the last away game of ours broadcast by Sky? Now that's a headscratcher.

    Does anyone know the rough breakdown of shareholdings in the club? 
     

    Smisa - 50.1% 

    kibble - 27.5% 

     

    Are there any other significant numbers in the remaining 22.4% or did all the big shareholders get their payout when SMISA/GLS purchased in 2016? 

    Gordon Scott retained some shares but I've no idea what percentage he has.

    Your highlighting of a contractor, i.e. Ticketing provider is probably correct.

    Previously the ticket section of our website was password protected for account holders only, i.e. Saint Mirren ST holders and fans. This new one is open to all and as such all can purchase a ticket for any available seat in the ground. Away section was normally dealt with by away team and we had no access to buy seats in the away end.

     

    Well that loophole better get closed long before either of the b(h)igots are due in town.
