  1. Apart from Covid a lot of the breaks went our way this season eg lots of penalties, opposition players sent off, Danny Rogers giving us a goal. There weren't many games we won where we were clearly better . We have the makings of good side but we are not top six quality yet. Close season signings will be crucial . No individual games spring to mind that could have changed things . Probably the February draws killed us.
  2. Quite simply not good enough. Obika and Erwin were poor. Happy to see the back of both but I think Erwin has another year of his contract to run. I reckon if Dennis and Brophy had been playing we would have won that well. Tell Doyle Hayes his contract extension offer is withdrawn and don't offer another one to Dylan Connelly. Neither bring much to us. Unfortunately we also seem to be stuck with McAllister for another season as well. The rest can form the nucleus of a good team
  3. I said could not would but worry about how we would perform in the bottom six. We may not have lost to any of the bottom six sides in that run but we came very near it. Perversely I think that if we do beat Accies it may be the boost we need to get playing well again and do much better than expected.
  4. Very important for us to get into the top six not just for the prestige,the prize money and the chance to get into Europe but to keep us away from the relegation battle. I know I'm sounding more of a pessimist than Elvis and I know that it would take a lot for any of the bottom three to catch us but I think we could go through the five games and get nothing. We have been rotten since beating Killie and need to get our act together. We have the players but that isn't enough in itself.
  5. This particular guy is terrible. When I hear it's him commentating I look forward even more getting back into the stadium where I won't have to suffer him. It's a discussion not a commentary. He never even said Hibs had a penalty until it was about to be taken. If you were on audio only you wouldn't have a clue what was going on. I presume he is not paid so maybe I shouldn't be so critical
  6. So championship clubs some of whom are as well off as us and in Hearts case much better off get a gift whereas we have to pay it back . In fact some of them will increase their income from last year especially if they have sold season tickets. Don't get the logic in that
  7. In a similar vein sky sports highlights of last weekend suggested our win was a surprise given Motherwell had well beaten us by 3 0 in the corresponding game in Paisley a few weeks previously
  8. Game moved to 3pm at the request of both clubs. Surely a larger ppv audience at the original time of 7 45 pm. We therefore lose income. I know a lot of people not working that day but can't understand why we agreed to this. Clearly there's something I'm not understanding
  9. I wonder if this and the financial irregularities would have happened if Brian Caldwell was still around. I think we all know the answer. That's what we get for employing someone not up to the job who can only act as s figurehead that makes silly statements. Yes we are indeed a bunch of amateurs. Having said that Celtic would not have received this punishment had they acted similarly
  10. I vowed this year that I would watch Scottish games on TV rather than EPL and EFL. I've stuck with that and am fed up. Standard of entertainment is poor. Back to watching south of the border stuff for me . I will continue to follow st. Mirren everywhere when allowed but will be not be watching any more Scottish games as a neutral .
  11. Of course Tony didn't write this himself which leads me to question why we employ a Chief Executive who isn't capable of writing a reasonable letter. Seems to me we pay him as a figurehead but he even screws that up by making silly comments to the press and embarrassing the club. I know he bleeds St.mirren but that doesn't make him a good CEO just like it wouldn't make a person a good manager. It seems everyone loves Tony but I wonder how much he brings to the club. Anyhow do we not have someone from Kibble doing the actual work now?
  12. If you work hard maybe one day you will be a slimy creep like me
  13. Last night I had to switch off the sound on the TV coverage because our commentator annoyed me so much. I didn't go on to Aberdeen sound as that would have annoyed me even more. The same guy also ruined things for me last home game. He is juvenile and can't stop prattling. It didn't help that the sound was in front of the picture so I knew Ethan had scored before he hit the ball. I don't have a commentary when I sit at a match live apart from an idiot a few seats along. Can we please get the old commentator back.
  14. Agreed. It is becoming clear that Goodwin only wants players he has brought in. I'm sure we could have got Popescu if we had wanted him. That would be fine as baggage from the past isn't always productive but Jim has so far not convinced me he has an eye for a good player. Hope I'm wrong because if not we have big problems
