  1. All three Mcginn brothers have at some point been disloyal to the club by leaving to earn more money. Quite right too as they need to maximise their earnings given its a short career. Just as St. Mirren are quite right in releasing one of them when he is no longer of use to the club. Why keep a player on the books who isn't going to play? That would be mismanagement. Remember also St. Mirren took on Paul and Stephen for a second time when both their careers were in trouble. That wasn't loyalty. Just good management.
  2. My concern with that is that we lose some players before the 8 games are played and Hearts and Ross County go out and splash the cash and leave us in the bottom two. I genuinely believe that if this season finished when it was supposed to we would have been above both of them.
  3. So the Scottish government is setting up its own expert group which they say may provide different advice from the UK government. Just what we need at a time where national unity is so important. They've hardly managed to work with the UK government for a week without sliding into the our coronavirus is different from your coronavirus. Pathetic.
  4. Baird better than having no one at all. Amateur stuff from us
  5. They will sell their allocation. Most of their fans that attend away games here live in the central belt. Always annoys me when they get praise for travelling so far to away games when the majority live nowhere near Aberdeen but not far from Paisley
  6. I wish tickets for all away games were of the sit anywhere variety. It would save a lot of misunderstandings and more importantly I can sit as far as possible from that bloody drum. I appreciate if a whole end is likely to be sold out specific seat numbers are easier to manage but how often does that happen?
  7. Bought my ticket today from the St. Mirren ticket office. It just says sit in any vacant space. If Motherwell are selling specific seats it might become a bit chaotic
  8. Not missed by me at Livingston. No one bullying me out of my allocated seat, no drum and the atmosphere was fine. Only the result was crap.
  9. Is this the Kirk Broadfoot that was delighted to be back and wanted to finish his career with us? Actually disappointed in his displays and never felt he was really committed. Having said that we cannot strengthen one of our relegation rivals and leave ourselves short especially with Paul Mcginn going.
  10. At last people are starting to understand the smarmy character of Jack Ross. Good manager for us but never tested in the top league. Totally devoid of loyalty which I have no issue with as he has a living to make but I do have an issue with how he left the club and the timing of that. Yet we had a bus load of fans going down to Sunderland to worship him and boost his already massive ego. Surely recent events will end this man crush once and for all.
  11. It's getting on for a week since the draw. People have lives outwith football and need to plan. No date confirmed. As usual no consideration given to supporters who are expected to turn out regardless
  12. No physical likeness to me but around same age and even more cantankerous than Victor. Get embarrassed for some of our fans the way they act
  13. I recall travelling up to Dingwall a few years back to find the game was called off for a waterlogged pitch just over half an hour before kick off. Lot of time and money wasted but it didn't matter as I m a super fan
  14. Reading on twitter that potentially 500 plus fans going down to Wrexham. I hardly miss a first team game home or away but will not be attending this as I don't agree with the format of this competition although if it was a first team game I would be there. People making silly comments about this being like a European tie. I wonder how many of those going down were at Dumbarton for a previous round. I wonder if those who weren't at Dumbarton are going for the football or a night out. No doubt there will be embarrassing scenes as our youthful fans "enjoy" themselves around town. Reason enough to stay away. Only hope they do not tarnish the reputation of our club especially if our colts do well.
  15. As Aberdeen are playing in Europe next Thursday I assume this game will be moved to Sunday 11th August
  16. Tony acting the idiot yet again. Should have stayed on holiday. Why would anyone want to manage us with him spouting drivel in the background. I'd love to be well up the league but let's not beat ourselves with a rod of our own making. Tony should concentrate on doing his own duties to the highest standard which he hasn't done as far as I can see. Leave Jim to manage without needless pressure.
  17. Maybe Coleraine are far from squeaky clean in what's been going on. I take that back if they don't appoint OK as their new manager
  18. Mr and Mrs Kearney are at it. I'm becoming convinced this has all been engineered. But what do I know. I wonder if Orans father in law has been advising them at all
  19. Sorry forgot that Tony walks on water and is such a nice guy. Why would not being up to the job be a reason to get rid of such a god like figure
  20. Fact 1 Oran Kearney is no longer our manager 2 Gordon Scott owns the club and can do whatever he wants if its legal 3 the past is past and we can't change it. We can learn from it but can't change it Opinion 1 We need to get on with preparing for the new season and get a new manager in place immediatly. Forget all the seeking applications stuff. We should know exactly who we want 2 Oran has never been sure if he wanted to stay. His holiday with his family made him see how much he misses them That plus a wee push from Coleraine convinced him that if he could get more time home he would stay and if not he would go. He probably didn't bargain on the reaction from GLS. I don't think he would have got such an extreme action if he did this five weeks ago. 3 Orans statement has a whiff of martyrdom about it. Ie I'm being hard done by whereas I don't think he comes out of this smelling of roses and is trying to deflect blame from himself 4 it is best for him. He can go back to his old life which I don't think he really ever wanted to leave for more than a year. He will manage Coleraine again but may not be held with the same reverence as before 5 I would have been indifferent if he stayed but am happy he has gone. The timing is rotten though. I don't think he will ever be sought again by other clubs of a better stature than NI or the South of that island 6 I wish our fans would stop prioritising having exciting football. OK never gave us that and we are unlikely to get that and stay out of the relegation zone. I'll take defensive football if it means freedom from relegation problems 7 I hope we appoint Jim Goodwin and only if we can't get him offer it to Gus. Jim would be a good committed manager and would satisfy the mindless section of our support who are impressed by someone telling them how wonderful they are and wavi g to them at the end of the game. In short he can hold it all together 8 Another hope based on an opinion. I hope we get a new CEO. I believe this is a huge weakness at the club just now and needs to be sorted.
  21. No official comment yet. I assume whoever runs the Web site is on holiday
  22. Tony should not be going on holiday at such an important time. He should be going during the season. Clearly he cannot be sacked while taking an authorised holiday but incompetence is the stuff of disciplinary action This situation has been rumbling on for a while and should have been nipped in the bud right after the playoffs. If it meant Kearney going then so be it. Incompetent management. I'm not bothered that Kearney has gone. I am concerned about our ability to act sensibly now. We cant undo what is done but we can act to minimise damage. Not convinced we are up to the challenge. If nothing else this does show the need to have a competent CEO. I know the incumbent is a super guy with St. Mirren blood in his veins. That doesn't make a good CEO although some on here seem to think that's what's required. Let's waken up.
