  1. Anyone that sings bigoted songs is morally deficient, whether it’s for 90 minutes or 90 seconds. Unfortunately it’s been widely accepted as being part of our culture for generations and will its accepted by many that it always be here. The only way I can think of tackling it within football is to start punishing the clubs involved with games behind closed doors, games being abandoned or deducting points. Steve Clarke was brave enough to highlight it last night. He looked shell shocked by his treatment, although it could’ve been connected his team being gubbed. The other teams, managers and fans need to start standing up to it, like Clarke did last night. Why in this highly PC society that we live in now, are thousands of people allowed to spout this bile with little to no action or even any spotlight on it? Times have mainly changed for the better in terms of racism, sexism and homophobia, but we’re still miles behind in sectarianism in the West of Scotland, especially it comes to football. Hopefully your niece’s boyfriend can eventually visit Ibrox without these chants and songs being sung, but it’s going to take drastic actions that could initially hurt our game. Football grounds would be a good place for the authorities to start tackling it head-on. Ouch, just fell off ma soapbox.
  2. Correction; was Kamara play acting, not Morelos. Be interesting viewing anyway.
  3. Sounds like the ref has been helping Sevco again tonight. Apparently denied Killie a stonewall pen at 0-0 and put Killie down to 10 men after play acting by that lovely article Morelos. And so it continues, allegedly.

    Aberdeen v St Mirren 16/02/2019

    Dundee got really lucky yesterday. Played the majority of the game against 10 men. Livvy keeper was poor with Dundee’s first and Livvy had a stonewall penalty turned down at 1-1. Obviously Dundee are on a high results wise, which is the most important factor, but I don’t think they are ahead of us in quality. We should take a lot of heart from yesterday’s result and performance. McAllister’s goal was tremendous. He looks like he could have a similar impact in games to Morgan or Hammill. Dundee and Accies are still catchable, but I suppose we just need to focus on ourself and take each game as it comes. Yesterday’s result will hopefully be an important platform to build on, but I thought that after the draw with Celtic. Definitely think we are improving though.

    W7/North Bank Treatment

    If the incident with the injured Utd fan didn’t happen, then this has to be as big a PR blunder by the club as we can all remember. Something doesn’t add up. There is no way this would have made the news if it was just 2 groups of neds having a go at each other. Agree that if numpties in the Saints end are spitting at anyone, they need punted out the ground for good. If it did happen it’s a shocker and we need the culprits caught quickly. Whatever happens now, the club’s name has been irreversibly scarred. What a shambles.

    McGinn

    Lucky to get away with it. Wonder if that was Paul responding to the players being asked to toughen up a bit. If it had been a Utd player taking out Jackson or McAllister like that, we’d be screaming for a red, but glad Paul’s not suspended for the next couple of games. Case closed, move on and cheer up Robbie, you got through and a great draw to get to the semis.

    W7/North Bank Treatment

    This whole situation is an absolute nightmare for the club. When the reputation of St Mirren gets dragged through the gutter, like today, the embarrassment and disappointment almost feels worse than the biggest disasters that have happened on the pitch over the years. It may be a few numpties on the bevvy, but if this has actually happened as reported, which you have to presume did, it’s a bloody disgrace. Would the club actually shoot itself in the foot in such spectacular fashion if it didn’t happen?? Still looks like the board could’ve handled it better; the story is out in the national media now. We can make no excuses and will just sound like the ugly sisters or the English media coming out with ‘a small minority’, it was the fault of the policing/stewarding etc. Unfortunately when you have an ‘element’ to your support the club gets tarnished. This time, last season we had the image of a well-run family club on the up. W7 were rightly being toasted as Saint’s 12th man and picking up plaudits from all quarters, including away fans. When in full voice it’s brilliant. After today, the image of the club has changed, whatever happened. Hope it gets sorted out quickly and conclusively(which I doubt), so we can get back to focussing on how we can improve on the park. A sad day to be a buddie.

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    Is anyone actually surprised by today’s result??

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    McGinn splits opinion on here, but I think he will be a big miss tomorrow. He completely changed the game when he came on against Dundee at Dens. Agree he could track back better, but he does bring composure and a bit of experience. Sometimes you don’t appreciate things until they’re not there or replaced by a lesser player. Hope the weather doesn’t ruin it tomorrow, unless it’s in our favour of course.

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    Utd will be looking forward to this a lot more than us. All the pressure on us. Any kind of win would be precious, even if it’s not in the league. 2-1 Saints and more gelling time and building match fitness for the new boys. Not confident though. Taking my son through for a birthday ‘treat’. Most of his pals are Arabs, so he’s as nervous about the game as his old man.

    St Mirren v Motherwell 6th Feb 2019

    Tonight is the kind of game that we need to pick up points and build a bit of belief and momentum. Chance missed again and worrying momentum to Accies and Dundee. Agree that the season isn’t over, even if it feels like it just now, but we are looking favourites for the drop. We’ve really made an arse of this season so far.

    The International Rangers v St Mirren - 2nd February 2019

    It really is beyond a joke that no action has been taken against Defoe. Excuses I’ve heard; “But he got straight back up.” “He didn’t claim for it.” “He went down because he anticipated contact.” He dived. End off. 4 match ban. 3 points deducted for teams that have 3 players done for diving. Until they take a hardline on diving, it will continue to be one of the biggest growing scourges in our game. Of course we could bring all this in and Sevco players would still get away with murder. Our game has been corrupt for generations unfortunately.

    The International Rangers v St Mirren - 2nd February 2019

    What an absolute load of bollocks Defoe is talking there. He must think we are all complete mugs. Dishonest cheating dive, followed by a dishonest assessment by him to try to avoid a deserved ban. If he gets away with that blatant cheating yesterday we should all just chuck it.
