    Feelgood Factor... We get Morton away in the league opener. 20 degrees. Sunshine. Lush perfect pitch. Morton raise the flag, and like the decent human beings we are, we give them a polite round of applause. Then, wearing our new 'mostly red' away kit, with new signings and new hope, Murray's Magic Mirren murder manky Morton 4-0. Murray, resplendent in a brand new shiny grey suit and crisp white shirt, club tie blowing in the summer breeze, marches across the pitch to salute the travelling support with a clenched fist and a grin as wide as Neil Doncaster's head after someone pans it in with a shovel.

    All a smokescreen for the inevitable appointment of Gary Teale

    No, no no. Just no. It can't be Teale.
    Working on the basis that we hope someone will become a good manager, or giving them a chance, or settling for the easy/cheap option, is exactly what's got us into this mess.
    We got very, very f**king lucky when it worked out well with Gus McPherson. But otherwise this approach hasn't worked for us.
    Teale's not been good enough: we were more than save-able when he took over, and our closest rivals really aren't very good either, yet we have gone down meekly.
    Also, let's put the myth to bed about him giving all these youth players their chances: he only opted to do it once we were down. He only opted to do that once we had shipped eight goals without reply in two games against our two closest rivals (who are f**king shite). We made Motherwell look like world beaters. The only amusing thing about that night (with hindsight) was the false sense of security/hope it gave the Well fans.
    I'm sorry, he seems like a nice guy and he remains a cup winning legend. For his pass to Isma, I will always be grateful. But he is emphatically not the man to rejuvenate a club that is well and truly in the doldrums. He is not the man to inspire fans to get behind the club for a promotion push. I don't even believe he's the sort of man who could sell the club and convince a few seasoned pros to join us as we try to get back up next year.
    Let's stop wringing our hands and thinking these past few results have made it all ok. We have been utterly f**king shite all season and we need to bring someone in from the outside who will kick us back in the right direction.

    To be fair if a Saints player got a red for McDonalds elbow I would be raging. Very very soft after watching Alba last night.

    Smoke and mirrors, the whole thing. This is the first BoD statement on this matter.
    Statement two in a few weeks will say that we have ben inundated with applications, from all around the world, some outstanding names throwing their hat in the ring.
    Statement three will come a further few weeks after that....asking the fans to be patient, diffcult task to work through such quality of applicant to draw up a shortlist, taking their time to make sure they get it right for this important pre-season.
    Statement four will be released a week or so before a ball is kicked....the BoD would like to welcome Gary Teale on a full-time basis.
    Not disrespecting gary in any way. He inherited a shambles and was never going to be experienced enought to turn it around. Just making a point that this BoD will try to work the same nonsense that they got away with last time.
    Take the perceived cheap option irrespective of the potential damage to club and the individual's reputation/career prospects.

    My issue with him is he should be speaking positively about the club and saying about staying up no negativity.
    I've hardly heard any fighting talk from the club at all, plenty from Ross County and they have improved.
    We need some fight and passion from the players, that's a minimum requirement!

    Yep, all this 'agenda' stuff is rather embarrassing. As well as the pundits, bbc, officials etc. do all the st mirren fans who thought arquin's challenge was a bit reckless ALSO have an agenda against st mirren?
    It's a delusion of grandeur, that all these different people and organisations would hold a grudge/agenda against us. We're a small team who, out with the people who support it, no one really gives two f'cks about!
    Maybe I'm wrong, perhaps everyone does have an agenda against st mirren because they really really really want the famous Ross county to stay up. Or maybe I'm not.

    Sorry, guys, but I've looked at the Arquin tackle several times now and it does look a bit naughty. Yes, the Cunty player makes the most of it, but he was caught on the top of the foot, and that can be pretty painful. Can't see us winning an appeal.
    As for the Beeb, they are just a shower of bawbags with an agenda.
