  1. Good interview. Very positive but with a no-nonsense focus on the basics as being a given. Encouraging to see the youth system is also a priority for Robinson which should always be the case at St Mirren. Early days, but its starting to feel like this season’s team is going to be a different animal compared to last season’s, in a good way. Looking forward to seeing the new players and Gallagher has the potential to be a really big signing for us.
  2. Sounds like he’s heading for Dundee Utd. Jack ‘bloody’ Ross at it again. Would’ve been great to get him back, but you can understand why Utd and other teams in our league would be after him.
  3. Simplifying it by taking away the red detailing on the collar, cuffs and shorts and it would be superb. A good effort though.
  4. Some of his goals for us were incredible, the one against Hearts stands out. His performance at fullback against Celtic in the league cup semi win was brilliant too. The guy is a talent and the nostalgic side for a few of us probably makes us wish he was back but 33 is getting on a bit. Don’t know what his fitness/injury history is?? Anyway, we can move on from him as a rumour as we know he’s not returning now. I’m sure he’ll get a good reception from our fans when we play the Fakes until he bends one in the top corner from 40 yards.
  5. Not sure about Gallagher to be honest. He went through a great run of form and was brilliant in his first season with Well but his form dipped badly in the period leading up to Robinson leaving them. Up at Aberdeen, Gallagher and Bates together were like Laurel and Hardy at the back. He’s got a bit of baggage too. Robinson knows him better than any of us though and we need another CB, but wary of who might head away from Paisley up to Aberdeen from us. Would take Gogic before Gallagher.
  6. 500k seems very cheap to me when you compare him to the likes of Ramsay at Aberdeen (although he played more games). Reid has looked quality, especially for his age when he has come in. He has captained the Scottish u16s/u17s? and attracted interest from big clubs abroad. Suppose he’s only worth what teams are prepared to pay for him but he should be a real asset to us either on the pitch or to cash in on.
  7. Solid signing for Motherwell. Good experience and a very consistent player. Think he’ll do a job there.
  8. Apparently Ross is wanting to take Jamie McGrath to Tannadice… It hasn’t worked out for McGrath at Wigan so far, but surely that would be a backwards move for him. I know he got injured and struggled to get his place back so who knows. Jamie did a great job for us but Ronan is a better player.
  9. Well documented issues off the pitch, but the wee man was a class act for us and he was one of the main reasons we lifted the cup in 2013 that season. His winning goal against the Govan mob that Christmas Eve was one of the best Christmas presents I ever got too. Cheers Gowser. 👍
  10. Hopefully more Junior Mendes than Junior Morias…🤞
  11. Looks absolutely rapid and some composed finishing (from YouTube clips). Exciting addition. Welcome to the Buddies Toyosi and awe the best!!
  12. Nae luck New Zealand, deserved more. Still a good experience for Greive even if it is a sore one too. Excited to see how he does this coming season. Big potential.
  13. He’s looked quite lively. If New Zealand qualify and Greive gets to the World Cup it earns a few bob for Saints, possibly as much as the shortfall of kicking the uglies out of the family stand next season. Fingers crossed he makes it.
  14. Hearts supposedly going to beat Aberdeen to Ronan’s signature. Obviously wish Connor all the best but would prefer him to get a decent move out with Scotland.
  15. Isma is only 30, thought he would be older. Would you have him back Buds or would it ruin the memories? His career has stalled a bit since he left Hearts. Played for a few clubs in the Middle East and Far East but not many games. Still scored goals though.
  16. Absolute nightmare, opened up the thread on my phone and it came up with the first post … from January. Thought we’d signed the bigman for next season. From elation to disappointment in 2 seconds. Hope we still have a chance of getting him to stay. Would be a massive signing if we could get him.
  17. Very true and I don’t blame him for taking the job, but his increased wage packet, his squad’s wages and the self entitlement of many of the Aberdeen fans make it all the more sweeter for a wee “diddy team” like us to finish above them.
  18. Anyone else take as much pleasure as me out of Goodie’s post match interview. Raging at the ref, which I can understand. Ethan should’ve been off and didn’t see much wrong with their disallowed goal. He bemoaned the ref’s performance and the fact that “We should’ve finished above St Mirren which is the difference between considerable prize money.” Will be forever grateful for what Goodie has done for us and think of him as a club legend but I cracked a massive smug smile listening to it. Nae luck Jim…
  19. Very good result under the circumstances. Rode our luck but dug in well. We are not as high up the league as we might have wanted but we survived today and quite enjoying the view sitting above Goodie’s Aberdeen. Staying above Aberdeen could be the budget for a new player next season or pushing out the boat for Gogic. He’s been brilliant since he arrived.
  20. Definitely a shove on Tanser. Correct overrule.
  21. He’s been great so far. Probably make Goodwin more determined to sign him for the sheep next season unfortunately.
  22. Just back home after a great trip to Paisley, 3 generations of Buds on tour. Really enjoyed the game and an excellent team performance. Everything went to plan and a nice reception for a club legend at HT too. Rejuvenated Main has transformed into a new player the last couple of games, topped off with beauty today, the strike and the take down were quality. Pleased to see the bigman starting to click and looking that he could actually be an asset next season. Even without my black and white specs on, what was that ref all about today? He had a shocker. McCarthy looked a bit shaky at the back but his teammates got him out of jail a couple of times. Gogic definitely runs in Duracell batteries, he was everywhere and we should be pushing the boat out to get him signed! We’ve managed to come good at a crucial time. I was fearing we were heading for the playoffs but Robinson must’ve used the wee break before the St Johnstone game to sort things out. Hopefully the feel good factor continues into next season. What a contrast of emotions compared to the Dee and Fakes fans. Feeling much more optimistic than I was a couple of weeks ago. Loved it today.
