  1. If there's such a thing as a good defeat that was it today as we played some good football! A poor defeat, on the other hand, is when we lose and play poorly. Either way - it's zero points.
  2. I guess it's back to the red jerseys after this. At least it felt like we were watching St Mirren today. This team now remind me of the Danny Lennon years, when we often played the better football but ended up (you guessed it) losing.
  3. Playing fairly well so far. Perhaps the novel idea of playing in black and white stripes has helped the cause.
  4. Forgot about McPake. However, strictly speaking, JG is still the longest serving manager in the SPL. McPake’s first couple of years were spent in the Scottish Championship.
  5. When was the last time we had the longest serving manager in SPL? Onwards and upwards or is this too good to last?
  6. I will look out for you - I fly out there tomorrow.
  7. Not surprising if he had a lot of balls to choose from.
  8. There is a huge improvement in our overall performances this season. We rarely outplayed teams last season as we did against Motherwell tonight. Unfortunately our defending is not as good as last season.
  9. You were obviously watching a different game from me.
  10. One of our better performances - let down however by poor defending. Motherwell don't deserve to be winning.
  11. The St Mirren commentary team are doing not a bad job either - big Yardley is helping out. And the team on the park are doing 'not badly' either. We've been playing some decent football and competing well. Hope we can keep it going in the second half.
  12. Another chance to go 5th tonight - provided Hibmirren succumb to Celtic at Easter Road.
  13. We had belief for the first half hour or so and then the Scottish syndrome kicked in - ie. 'who are we to be taking the game to the bigots?' More or less every other country in Europe seem to be able to compete successfully with them for the whole match instead of 'sitting in and keeping our shape'. Neither of the bigot sisters are as good as the biased Scottish press make them out to be. How adopting a defensive formation is seen as a sensible ploy against ordinary opposition beats me. We are only handing the initiative to them time after time. For years it has been the same failing for our international team although there are now signs that that is starting to change. Give me 'offensive' as against 'defensive' every time and not just for the first half hour or so. And that does not necessarily mean going gung ho and leaving ourselves wide open at the back - most other European countries manage to find the right balance.
  14. After this afternoon's results, a home win for us tomorrow would see us jump to 5th in the league.
  15. After the earlier results this afternoon - a draw in the 6pm kick off will suit us best.
  16. A good battling performance in the second half. Pity about the 'slow' start to the season - especially the collapse against Celtic. When playing to form, we're not far behind any team above us - if that makes sense!
  17. The whole team is playing well today - we have no passengers. Erahon and Powers are controlling the midfield. And Brophy's goal was something really special.
  18. In our red 'away' strip again today. Why? Our traditional black & white stripes shirt would be a better contrast to Livi's home strip. Does someone at St Mirren not like the stripes?
  19. Another adventurous and creative formation from JG with 8 defensive players in lineup.
  20. Is it not time that Hibernian were officially renamed Hibmirren ?
  21. This is a bit like watching the team trying to create a genuine scoring opportunity other than by a hopeful punt up the park! Apparently our signing strategy is just as clueless.
  22. So far every other SPL team appear to be strengthening their playing squads except us. Maybe we will make some inspired last minute signings!
