  1. Think it all could depends on what league we are playing next season, though i agree in the very short time he has been with us, he is already looking like a magnificent find. Makes you wish the Heaton fee was instead spent on this lad. I would be inclined to ask for an extended loan deal if he was not within our transfer budget, if we are playing in the top flight next season.
  2. This forum is getting truly awful. You have to work your way through umpteen posts before finding something on topic.
  3. I wonder if the loan agreement will be terminated or if he will be still registered with us. If he will be not playing the rest of the season, would be good to know that we have freed up a wage and the signing of Corbu now fills that gap.
  4. That seems plausible. I have never agreed with official forums anyway.
  5. Lets get Netflix involved, they did a pretty decent Sunderland AFC documentary. Better quality of picture than CCTV
  6. I think the club are taking abuse from every angle over this and purely wanted to voice their side of the recent accusations of wrong doing on social media, which looked like a one-sided story, without them getting a say. The longer the club stayed silent, there would be people moaning about how quiet they are. They have used the Utd fans injury as an example of what can happen if you surge forward and (most likely) to warn of standing on seats could cause the same result in injury. Whether the incident happened or not (coin and spitting), its a pretty strong statement to release if there is no truth to it. If it did happen and it was one or two who were involved, the whole of W7 would have not seen said incident anyways. The fact a coin was thrown at Morelos a few months back really doesn't do this end of the ground any favours. As i said, if it did happen, its one or two ruining it for everyone else who puts in the effort in that section of the stand every game. I doubt anyone would shop their mate though.
  7. We can't keep going on the assumption that an alternatively experienced manager would turn this mess round. Yogi Hughes at Raith, Butcher at Hibs and Inverness, the list goes on were all failures. Despite picking up 3 points at the weekend, the appointment of Brian Rice at Accies for me, was as big a risk as when we appointed Tommy Craig. Well established coach, though certainly not much experience as a manager. Chopping and changing the manager consistently is not going to make our club an attractive gig, so you are left with the same names in the pot everytime the vacancy opens up. People will always debate the standard of the Northern Irish league too in comparison. Setting that aside, the size and rep of the club he built up to be title contenders. national cup winners and access to the europa league qualifiers, was all through patience. Our fans simply do not have that. We HAVE TO give OK the rest of the season. It's his team now.
  8. Badly need Magennis back as an option. Agree we need a tough as nails no nonsense midfielder who will run through brick walls for us. Are we relying on injured players returning rather than spending? I thought Hodson done a rather good sweeper job behind midfield second half Vs Alloa. Similar minded player needed for that role? When we lose possession we seem to be all over the place with big gaps forming in the centre of the park.
  9. Yeah, i bet the Partick Thistle fans were delighted to be relegated, to then be within a baw hair of going down another level this season. This is the reality of dropping down to the Championship. It almost happened on two occasions last time round when we went down. Falkirk are an example of a club who have came close to promotion on many occasions, though have now got to the point that poor finances, has resulted in youth football being scrapped and they are on the brink of collapse if they don't turn around their fortunes this season. We have the infrastructure of a Premier league team and really should be doing better.
  10. Agree with this. We had a couple of half chances at best that fell to Jackson, though the longer the game could have went on at 1-0 we could have had a bit of self belief and the subs could have made a difference, even to the point where we see it's worthwhile sticking on McAllister to run at them for the last 15. That chance passed when the referee malfunctioned.
  11. This! Impatience creeping in and rightly so with results, though unfair to judge a player after a couple of games. I know it's not ideal though he is still working on his fitness and getting back to first team game time.
  12. Feed the duck on Weds and we are on our way.
  13. I feel it's not a high enough profile game for the SFA to do anything about his performance. That's the sad reality of it. He will be protected and told next time don't give anymore than 3 to the one team next time round.
  14. The clearance came through on Monday. I'd imagine it has been so manic over the last few days, its still on the to-do-list for official press release with pictures, since we had the game on Sunday and the window is just about to close. Maybe awaiting the other player(s) to arrive today and get it all done in one go.
  15. He was in hospitality on Sunday for a short while.
  16. The same names as usual will be punted about. Wouldn't surprise me though if Buezilin hangs on to it as he is highly rated. Unless they have a recruitment team on the staff, they have left themselves short of bringing in any new players, though maybe there wasn't money there to add any more.
  17. If the team were doing well, i would possibly say yes, though we struggled for those numbers when we were flying in the championship, though sold out at full price for Morton game and a decent crowd for the Livy game.
  18. I know you are a fan of watching the Juniors. That's what level you will be watching football at with St. Mirren if our club was charging £8 a skull for adults.
  19. Our issue is the risk of relegation really weakens your chance of attracting a player committing long term. We have done well to tie the Hladky and Tansey beyond this season. I am sure within the next week we will see some activity and I am fairly confident a striker is a high priority.
  20. My thoughts on it are that if the referee thought it was a dive, why did he not continue play and have a word with the player. He had only booked him a few minutes earlier for a challenge. It was so far out from goal, i couldnt see why he would want to go down, as if he beats his man, he has a chance of a shot on goal as the other defenders are pulled away from him with other players runs. You can clearly see from the replay the defender is showing his left shoulder out, waiting for Brad to get closer to him, then when he sees that he is going to continue his run by his open side (the defenders right), he puts his right shoulder in front to put up a block and prevent him getting by. There is no simulation, clear contact. If he did play for the foul fair play, though weigh this up against Alloa player going down in the box 2nd half, waving his arms about in frustration, ref waves play on. I've never understood this one. If you think he went down in the box and no penalty, could the player have dived to win a pen, therefore merit a booking?
  21. You are not expected to, it's your own choice and there is no long term commitment. I choose to use it now and again. I've renewed 3 times this season on a monthly basis, so £15 i've spent. What's that, the price on average of 4 extra pints in the pub this season. I'm sure it will be reviewed end of season, though i do agree, maybe offering a 1-3 months free subscription to season ticket holders and free to annual St Mirren TV users, would be a good idea.
  22. I agree that in some cases with players, they just need to be a right fit for a particular club.
  23. I can see where you are coming from, though if he is one of the players we have monitored through our new vetting system, or at least done a bit of research on, there is nothing to say he's not worth having a look at. The difference this time round to what Stubbs had done, is we are not quickfire signing anyone without at least having some sort of knowledge of them.
  24. Possibility we are holding up Lyons announcement to parade him with one or two more at the same time to the press
  25. I think Jack Ross is a traitor and there are plenty who agree but choose not to speak out as the (I Love Jack Brigade) will be right onto them. He's a traitor for bettering himself with a higher profile job and financial security for his family? This opportunity may never have came round again if he flopped in the Premier League this season with us. Whether you agree with or not, Sunderland have the infrastructure of an English Premier League club, have plied their trade in that league for many of years, have the stadium, the fan base etc etc and have a re-building job on their hands to take them back there. I for one do not hold a grudge for all of the above. I am just thankful for the good times Jack James provided for our club, winning the league, giving us our club back and bringing that unity between fans, players, management and board. Though here we find ourselves having a debate over how loyal he should be and how shite our fans are for going to a Sunderland game. Dear oh dear.
