    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    That's for another thread. Refs now can't officiate for fcuking toffee, but it's not just the preserve of Scottish fitba, seen a load of English games with shite referees- but how some of these chinless wonders get a FIFA badge is anyone's guess. Must be an offer when you send in 10 coupons from boxes of Coco pops

    Merged: All The Oran Kearney Threads

    I'm not jumping on the 'sack the manager' bandwagon BUT with would ask the question to the supports who believe OK will turn it around, will come good etc- how long do we give for this to happen. It seems that OK and the rest of the (experienced) coaching team cannot buy us a win. I also believe that if a manager and/or team believe they will lose a game, they will somehow find a way for that to happen- which in itself raises questions,but for OK to openly state we are underdogs was a very poor error of judgement and not one that will win him much favour with at least of fair part of support. So what is next for us? Answers on a postcard please

    St Mirren v Motherwell 6th Feb 2019

    Ok seems a likeable, nice guy who did well across the water but for us it's not working with him. My main issue is we keep sticking with the same game plan and inherently end up with the same results. He also has JN & Gus there but their presence hasn't helped. Also, if I remember correctly, we signed OK on a 4 year deal(which I found surprising after doing the same with Stubbs) so even if we do decide to part company, we will have yet another manager who needs the their contract paid, and who will take over? Gus or Jimmy I'm sure. I'm praying that something-anything happens to give the entire team a kick in the arse and we at least get a playoff spot but realistically, looks unlikely we will be anywhere near enough for that.

    Saints v Hibs, 27th January 2019

    We played that well we got our arsed well and truly kicked. If the defence played ok I'd have been optimistic, but could see the fractures even before half time. The defense was shocking and passing, clearing the ball and general awareness were all well below par. Have been trying to keep the faith, remain positive and hope for improvement but not seeing much to keep my optimism. I really hope that we are on the cusp of a big improvement- but only time will tell

    Saints v Hibs, 27th January 2019

    I'm not at the game, but from what I can see on the coverage, this performance ranks among the worst I've seen this season. The defence is inept and close to pointless, we can pass to save ourselves and the few chances we have had, have been squandered. If we keep this up, I doubt we could get another win this season and relegation seems almost a certainty. Now it's time for a dram
  7. Personally I don't like artificial pitch surfaces, have played on a few(mainly through playing rugby) and always felt better playing on proper turf and grass pitch- I do think we will eventually need to look at synthetic/hybrid surfaces(as most clubs will) but feel that they aren't quite at the stage of being a real alternative to real grass surfaces. Anyone care to lambast my views or just disagree?

    Football Pundtwit Sutton

    Well, working hard does have the disadvantage of not being able to commit to being a keyboard warrior full time. Love the fact that you've taken the time to take issue with the timing of my post. The secret bastard child of Sutton- perhaps?

    Football Pundtwit Sutton

    The fact of the matter is Sutton is an ex player, now nobody,who only does what he does (talk shite and try to get folk wound up) to try and project some self importance. A twat he is but not worthy of any second thought.

    Stubbs Sacked

    Was he pushed or did he jump, no mention of the nature of the 'parting company'. At least it wasn't a 'conscious uncoupling' like the twat who whines with Coldplay and gwyneth paltrow, mother of their fruit inspired weans

    Stubbs can go now

    No, directors of football is a bit of a nonsense IMHO, Someone to manage a manager and/or take over the football 'operation'. A managers job is what it says on the tin, to manage the team, players, tactics, transfers(obviously with approval from the BOD for budget). It also means another wage to pay, and like has happened in a number of clubs where a director of football has been present, there seems to be a lot of disharmony- too many cooks as they say

    I agree but sometimes our bums start to squeak a bit prematurely, think we can all give a judgement on AS after the window closes and we see who we have. I was always realistic about how we would do this season but also believe we need to give ourselves an aiming point, and if we do better than that then happy days.

    Stubbs can go now

    I wouldn't say the writing is on the wall YET but it isn't looking good so far. I also remember that there was an outcry from some after the appointment of Jack Ross, after his work at Alloa hadn't went that well, and to start off we still weren't winning games and a lot of forum posters called for him to be given the shove- I will openly admit I was a doubting Thomas, but was proved wrong(thankfully). I think we need to see if we can get a few decent faces in while the transfer window is open and see if we start getting the results we need. And just on the contract offered to AS, I think 3 years is insane especially in this day and age when results are critical. I would have given a one year initial then a further 1 or 2 year contract dependant on performance, with certain criteria that need to be met

    Craig Samson

    Seen some highlights of the game against Aberdeen and he was a bit iffy, although our inept defending didn't help, and during the Rangers game, I don't know why he came out miles away from his line when there was no hope he would get the ball. Sometimes we pulls amazing saves out of the hat, but feel he then sometimes gets really clumsy and gives away goals. Am I alone in thinking this or does anyone else see the same?

    Championship DVD

    I'd say so, to be honest any other revenue we can bring in would be welcome I'm sure
