  1. He's had a worse start than Stubbs, i hope i'm wrong but it's hard to see it ending well.
  2. Yeah it all feels a bit Ian Murray to me. Looked a good appointment on paper, and most fans were happy with it. Within a few weeks it became clear it wasn't going to work. He certainly shouldn't and won't be sacked, and he will get the summer if he keeps us up - surely he couldn't relegate us? Hard to imagine a worse start though, he seems to have lost the dressing room and alot of the supporters.
  3. Off the top of my head only the Old Firm, Aberdeen, Motherwell and County don't have any ex Saints in their squads. You've already mentioned Hibs and Dundee: St Johnstone MacPherson Dundee Utd Liam Smith Livingston Sean Kelly Hearts Ross Stewart Probably missed a few too.
  4. Thompson was also one of the greatest i've seen at St Mirren. Dorman and Thomson? No chance, wouldn't have either of them in the top ten tbh. I remember the boo boys really going after Dorman and Thomson was just a decent player - neither of their scoring rates from midfield was anywhere near Ronan's. Unsure what McGinn you mean as we've had three. By Premier League do you mean Scottish Premiership? I agree the standard of Scottish Football outside the top two is really poor, as results in Europe show. That's why a guy like Ronan, who is 24 and contracted to an EPL club, stands out so much. McGrath is also nowhere near Ronan's level either, can't get a game for Wigan, we did well getting a fee for him.
  5. Ok tell me who, in the last 30 years, which is how long i've been watching. Note i did say 'one of the best', not the best.
  6. What a strange reply. The club is older than 13?
  7. I did say best i've ever seen, not best ever. Sure even you can appreciate they're not the same thing.
  8. One of the best St Mirren players i've ever seen.
  9. We obviously get blown out the water financially by English clubs whenever they're interested in our players - as we should - but i think we do okay when it comes to competing with other Scottish top flight clubs. Three recent examples that come to mind are Tanser, Brophy and Jones. All three were wanted by other Scottish Premiership clubs, and all three chose us. Also Fraser was rumoured to be attracting interest elsewhere in Scotland, but extended his contract with us. That never used to be the case. No idea if this is anything to do with the ticket sales to away fans in the south stand of course. It seems like the fans consensus is we should only give them the North Stand, so given we are fan owned, surely that will happen...?
  10. I may be remembering this wrong, but didn't they used to get W6/W7 and the North Stand? There was a big stooshie about that and we gave them the south stand instead of W6/W7.
  11. Ah city of discovery, potato potatoe all those teuchtars are the same anyway
  12. They were targetting Tait all night, Neilson had clearly done his homework and identified him as the defensive weakness. He's playing right back first half, both goals come from down our right hand side. He's playing left back second half, both their goals come down our left hand side. But yeah the better team won and we can have no complaints.
  13. Given our goal difference we realistically need five points from the three remaining games to get top six, so not winning this is going to mean we need to win at Fir Park and get something against Rangers at home. Not quite must win but almost. Obviously we have nothing to fear from Dundee Utd, we deservedly beat them at Tannadice a few weeks ago and i think we will make it three wins in a row against teams from the fair city. 3-1
  14. Might aswell get a statue for Tom Hendrie, Gus MacPherson and Jack Ross up too while we're at it, they also all won the second tier as St Mirren managers. Won't be much parking space left though :D
  15. We won our last three games in Dingwall under Goodwin.
  16. There's no way St Mirren with Tony Fitz as CEO would sack a manger after just four league games in charge, surely. Hold on... Of course i am not saying he will or should be sacked. However, it's certainly not ridiculous and clearly not unprecedented to say that if this run of losing every game without scoring continues he will be under severe pressure very quickly. Stubbs had four league games in charge, won one of them (against Dundee funnily enough) and got binned. Robbo needs to win on Wednesday to match the start made by Stubbs.
  17. Correct. He never won a major honour with us, so he's not a club legend and should not be honoured. Would rather honour Danny Lennon!
  18. It's actually Jim Gillespie, should have clicked the link first
  19. Awkward 'meet the parents' shot ✔️ Who's on the right?
  20. Taking training today and in the dugout tomorrow. Great business by the club to bring in an experienced and proven manager about 72 hours after the last one left. Looks like we are about £150k up aswell
