    BanburyBud got a reaction from saint in exile in Scotland v Czech Republic Euros 14/6/21   
    Predictable and typical Scotland. 
    The dust has settled and the feeling of deflation is still there. 
    Today was our opportunity to be creative, to be bold and to give talent a go. 
    Our chance in a tournament where we are playing at home to go out and make a big step to make history. 
    Now I hear all the ‘let’s stay behind the team’ I get it, I honestly do. I get ‘we had 19 chances’ but how do you account for the absolute amateur play from our goalie for the second goal 
    But today we did the typical Scotland thing and blew it, well and truly!
    Now the younger generation can understand the feeling of all those glorious failures of years gone by….

    Three solid signings with SPFL experience. Surprised St Johnstone let Tanser go, to be honest. A good days business all round. 👍🏻

    BanburyBud got a reaction from faraway saint in St Mirren v Dundee United SPFL Premiership 16/5/21   
    For me I would sum the season up as comfortable. We, probably from January onwards and after we got the points deduction reversed, gained enough momentum and points to (on hindsight) take the usual relegation dogfight away. We also achieved some good away results this season that helped massively. That, in my view, is the ‘success’
    as for the cup semi finals, I would have to agree with Ronnie’s view whereby going out at that stage does not amount to success. I firmly believe that we were sucked into the hype of both teams we played in the semis were on form at the time and, to a large degree, negated our tactics and confidence.   
    but, all in all, a 7th place finish is progress so well done to the boys for that.

    Unbelievable negativity towards the club from its own supporters

    Many on here regularly slate the team before a ball is kicked, while we play and after regardless of if we we win/lose/draw

    A lot of ‘what ifs’ and ‘if only’ talk but the bottom line is simple.

    2 cup semi finals is still successful

    7th is still successful

    Alnwick had 13 clean sheets ?

    The academy is continuing to produce players for the future

    We were ravaged by covid , made to play against Celtic/Hibs without our keeper

    Beat Sevco and Celtic in quick succession

    Ach you’re right, pish season......

    Agree, pretty entertaining for a 0-0.
    I also thought Brophy looked very good today and liked the fact he’s not shy about shooting - we’ve been missing that for years.

    Connolly looked much better today and may have persuade JG to offer him a new contract.

    There will be a number leaving, but I have every confidence that we’ll replace them with better.

    Looking forward to next season already.

    It’ll be a long summer ....

    A typical end of season game but great that we got the 7th place finish. We deserved that over the season and feared that we would drift down the table after missing top 6. 
    we were comfortable in possession, although we seemed to panic when they went down to 10. Brophy looked fit and sharp today which was nice to see. Cammy and Jamie very good on link up.

    BanburyBud got a reaction from ironsaints87 in St Mirren v St Johnstone. Scottish Cup Semi Final   
    I read many posts that we were beaten by ‘the better team’ today as was said after the Livingston semi final. I, after a few hours of reflection, am still finding that hard to believe and is nothing more than an excuse. 
    I have seen us play in many semi finals over a number of years and, in my opinion, these two provided us with the best opportunities to progress. 
    so my thought is, why are St. Johnstone and Livingston ‘better’ than us?
    we have the best squad we’ve had in years and the manager has been very well supported yet we have fallen at every hurdle this season, apart from not in relegation with games to spare. 
    so, from my own humble opinion, this season has been no more successful than the play off season. 
    Only my opinion, mind but poor game management has a helluva lot to answer for...

    BanburyBud reacted to Slash in St Mirren v St Johnstone. Scottish Cup Semi Final   
    I’m firmly in the belief that it was a clear penalty in the first half on two counts.
    1. The ball was heading into the far corner and the outstretched arm deflected this away from the target.
    2. The follow through on Dennis was a clear foul regardless of the ball going.
    Compare this non award with the one Collum gave against us in the League Cup Semi against Celtic in 2013.
    The shot was going off target as Goodwin went to block. 
    Had we taken the lead today at that point in the game I believe we would have gone on to win. Had VAR been in use, up steps Jamie McGrath.
    Basically Collum the Incompetent f**ked up once again. He had a clear view of the hand ball and the follow through kick on Dennis.

    I thought we were very weak in the middle of the park and, no harm to him, but Ethan way out of his depth. 
    poor, lazy defending for the first goal. Durmus and Alnwick were top for us today. 
    i understand that people are saying it’s been a good season. I reserve judgment as we could have done so much better. 
    the only plus for me, at this particular moment, is that we were safe with games to spare

    Beaten by the better team, no excuses.

    Midfield, non-existent. Erhahon, lost school boy, offered nothing.
    The End.
