  1. I wonder if Keith Lasley's arrival will change our previous practice of accepting the first offer that comes along for our better players for the grand sum of a tuppence farthing (with add-ons).
  2. What's just as important this close season is who we hold on to - like Erhahon, Flynn and Gogic. Young Ethan is developing into a classy midfielder (when he screws the bobbin); Flynn (if he stays fit) is versatile and he will use his experience to develop and encourage others; and Gogic should be a priority to sign on a permanent basis. Also, JG may be hovering around to lure the likes of Shaughnessy, Dunne and Kiltie to the other team in all-red.
  3. As has already been said, we've got to make the signing of Gogic a priority. If we manage to finish above the Dons, the money gained should be used for that purpose. He's even a standout at centre back.
  4. Jim Clunie was probably the best centre half who has played for St Mirren in my lifetime. He was also the most skilful defender in Scotland in his era but was overlooked for international caps because of the bias within the SFA towards inferior Old Firm players.
  5. Must be quite a few years since we looked forward to a visit to Pittodrie with hopes of at least a draw. So let's not do it the usual St Mirren way - ie falling at the last hurdle.. It would be nice to finish above both Aberdeen and Hibs
  6. As it stands, it's all set up for us to fall at the last hurdle at Pittodrie - behind Goodwin's duffers on goal difference - it's the St Mirren way.
  7. Do St Mirren know about this?
  8. A bit of a selection dilemma for the Buddies next season - with a fully fit Brophy and also Main in his current form, will Greive be able to claim a starting place in the team? We may also sign another striker to provide cover for injury and to encourage competition for the starting role, assuming that we will normally start with two strikers. Remember also that Robinson seems to rate Kieran Offord who by the way does not appear in the club's website for the first team squad - have I missed something?
  9. Erhahon's passing ability could be a telling factor today - there aren't many other alternatives in this lineup. Let's hope he is switched on this afternoon.
  10. I see Alex Gogic is now considering staying on in Scotland - https://news.stv.tv/sport/alex-gogic-happy-to-consider-a-future-in-scotland Hope we are trying to entice him to extend his stay with the Buddies.
  11. I know it's a bit early to come to this view - but if Robinson can continue to get the best out of Curtis Main, then it should be a bit of a cake walk to get the most out of Erhahon next season. Goodwin was not recognised for his ability to get the best out of existing players but to buy in new players and give them the chance to shine at St Mirren - eg. Ronan and McGrath.
  12. Ethan is about to celebrate his 21st birthday on 9th May. He has the potential to have a big career in the game - he has the talent but has yet to prove he has the same sense of urgency of a John McGinn or Kenny McLean. If he could add that to his game we would be talking about a transfer value much in excess of the current £200,000 being talked about.
  13. Unfortunately, Curtis Main has not performed to that level many times this season, but let's give him his due and acknowledge his contribution today in what was probably the most significant result of the season. Until the Buddies can attract crowds that would allow us to compete budget-wise with clubs in the top six, then we will suffer many seasons like this. It will be interesting to see if Robinson's close season signings can lift us into the top six for the first time in recent history.
  14. Now we can relax and look forward to the most exciting part of the year - the close season and all the speculation about who is going and who is coming in.
  15. Every single player gave their all today. Pity that our season was disrupted by the manager who promised to bring stability to the club abandoning ship mid season.
  16. Main is having his best game so far for the Buddies.
  17. Plenty of effort - not much finesse. I would settle for a draw now.
