    Froggie got a reaction from whydowebother in Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.   
    Never cease to be amazed how the undeserving manage to get jobs way beyond their capabilities. My abiding memory of this chap is him making it into the record books by becoming the manager who was able to lose a cup final in extra time despite having a 2 man advantage. Should have been dismissed immediately but clung on due to having no doubt friends in high places.  And no, I didn't forget the next match against Celtic which I, like the majority of the support, missed due to being severely irate. So, no welcome back from the frog.

    Froggie got a reaction from LargsBud in Stubbs' Signings   
    Stubbs showed what he really thinks of Scottish football. Like Craig before him, he considered that reserves and lower/non league English players would be good enough to play in our top league. That in itself would be grounds for dismissal but for the directors to actually allow him to squander precious funds on untried players is akin to dereliction of duty.
    He goes with my good riddance although no doubt he will be permitted, just like that other ne`er do well Alex Rae, to pontificate to us mere mortals about that which is above our intelligence....football. I despair.

    Biggest fee paid in 25 years for a player from National League South. Do me a favour. Absolutely staggering gamble. If anyone of note was after him in England he wouldn't be at St Mirren.
    A striker from Truro for the Premiership in Scotland who comes from part time football, got to be making it up. I wasn't fussed about Reilly moving on, I am now !
    Both these signings make me really worried and anyone who isn't is kidding themselves. 
    Hope to be totally wrong but not looking good IMO.

    To go from the highs of last season, even the second half of the preceding season and then losing our best player and best manager in living memory is a real blow just when theres been a great atmosphere among the fans and in the town. It seems many already have us as likely relegation candidates. I am not impressed with either the new manager or any of the signings - I know theres no basis for the pessimism yet but I have a bad feeling - and sincerely hope we are not going down the Craig route of lower league English players which is a huge risk playing against the likes of the old firm, Aberdeen and the capital clubs.
    Only time will tell, of course, and I wish the team well this coming season. Hope not to be watching from behind a sofa at some matches,lol.

    Froggie got a reaction from zico in New Manager Latest Odds   
    The amphibian view on this appointment is one of disappointment, which would most likely have always been such after a great success like JR. One thing I always pick up on though is that English people always have an eye on returning home as soon as a decent opening arises ( see Davis signing for Grimsby as a perfect example). He couldn't get out of Hibs quickly enough to the second division down there and made rather a hash of things. I may well be proved wrong but having sang froid  I weigh these things up impassionately.
    One thing I do ask of him is, please do not bring in Jules Verne league players, Craig tried it and it doesn't work !

    The amount of hype from the English media printed about Salah, comparing him to Messi, Ronaldo et al, shows how completely out of touch and unrealistic they are. Because a player does well in their league automatically puts him in the "world class" department, lol. Didn't take Madrid long to snuff him out and show Liverpool a clean pair of heels. Unfortunately lots in this country are starstruck by our southern cousins, also taken in by the media hype.

    Oh yes, the old "they bring in lots of tourists and money" rubbish that's wheeled out every time those parasites require mugs like us to fund their lifestyles. I don't imagine places like Paisley or anywhere outside the Home Counties made much from this charade. Incidentally, if its meant to "unite the nation", then why are all those events held in the same area ? ( the wealthiest region in the uk just by chance). As an earlier poster mentioned, the Russians, Germans Italians etc got shot of their scroungers long ago and must be laughing at us still forking out to pay for millionaire ne`er do wells` housing and holidays. Probably serves us right for being so stupid and subservient when behind their backs they despise the great unwashed.
    Rant over, lol.

    He's been at 4 clubs since Norwich and failed at every single one of them. Not many managers get the opportunity to fail 4 times in a row. He is another Owen Coyle IMO. I wouldn't want us to go anywhere near him.

    Had to watch the game from the away stand instead of usual berth in the main stand but despite not being much of a game, great end result. Congratulations to the team for the best turnaround in living memory over 14 months. Sounds like it was party time in Paisley after the match, pity no-one told the people of Shawlands where I was, lol.

    Had a feeling we might lose this one last night, our record up there has always been poor. However it gives us a chance to clinch it at home although even that is not nailed on as Livi are a tough team to beat. Should amount to a good atmosphere on Saturday and its in our own hands.

    Might I suggest that for games like Saturdays, the club ought to install commodes under the seats for the comfort of fans ?
    Like one or two other games this season (esp v Raith in the Irn Bru cup) Saints have come out with the attitude of "this will be too easy for us today" and been unable to raise their game when opponents have proved to be no pushovers. OK we held on this time, but it was misery watching the last 20 mins when no-one could have complained if Brechin had managed a draw. Nevertheless we held on and perhaps another warning - like last weeks - that the title is not sewn up yet. Fridays game will be interesting to see if we really have what it takes.
