    Saints v Celtic, Friday 14th September

    What an impressive start to 0K tenure. Came expecting carnage but some seeds of hope but left after witnessing one of our best performances in a long time. No failures tonight and whilst Celtic helped us out with a tepid display l am full of hope of a new dawn

    Catch 22 - or can we hold on to OK?

    Am looking forward to 10,000 at home squeezed into a 7,000 seater stadium

    Stubbs Sacked

    Whoever comes in now it's crucial players, officials and fans unite behind them to try and make a fist of this mess before any new manager is able to put their own stamp on the team in January window. Obviously a lot to do with what went on behind the scenes

    Stubbs can go now

    Regarding the back four, Baird was consistently good when paired with Davis and to a lesser extent Mackenzie. Both players coached, interacted and talked Baird through the game and immensely helped his confidence and play. This year he appears the best on show and is suffering from that lack of leadership. As others have pointed out the recruitment defensively has been Stubbs biggest problem and his immediate challenge to address though coaching

    Transfer Window Countdown

    I suspect kenny miller will do them a turn this season. Finishing has been their problem this and last season

    League Reconstruction

    Pros and cons in all above scenarios. I suspect many of our home attendances would be up in a bigger league, particularly playing the likes of Dunfermline and Patrick. Wheth this would offset income of potentially three or four games against old firm l am not sure about. Unfortunately the harsh reality of Scott football and in many respects it's fatal flaw is the financial might of old firm, probably more so than their dominance of league and cups. I am increasingly happier with the pyramidal model we are establishing but do think that it would greatly benefit the game if a number of areas, particularly in central and eastern Scotland amalgamated local clubs to create more potential strong teams- look at Caley thistle since they merged

    Raise the white flag

    Up to players and management to sort it out and at the very least get organised and play to best of their ability. Support will support a team that goes out there and gives it a go and will support a manager who demonstrates progress. Stubbs needs to show us that his signings are capable and that he can mould a team

    He's been told he is not going to allowed to spend today. Maybe a loan signing? That's what l have heard

    Maybe a loan or two. Have heard he will not be allowed to spend any more cash on signings

    St Mirren v Livingston 25th August 18

    Having had 24 hours to reflect on this performance l think my biggest disappointment is that there were a number of occasions when jack Ross teams turned in abysmal first halves which often featured zero attempts on goal. The difference tended to be he was able to garner something from them time and again on the second half, adjust his tactics to reflect the opposition and where we were struggling and generally get something out of the game. There was none of that yesterday. I can accept duff performances by players from time to time but the 'quality ' on display at present is really worrying. Players need to stand up and be counted, but most modern players don't think on their feet and are welded to tactical instructions

    St Mirren v Livingston 25th August 18

    Number of punters around me commented on the tactical set up. Coulson got left too often overrun by Livingston players as midfield too narrow and not supporting 'wing backs ' enough. That is the managers job to sort out. Baird came on and immediately improved the defence. Cannot see what Stubbs is seeing in training to justify some of his selections

    St Mirren v Livingston 25th August 18

    Did we register a single shot on target? I don't recall one

    St Mirren v Livingston 25th August 18

    That was rank. Last 16 months obviously a dream l had and we are back to the classic home scoreboard of St mirren 0 opposition at least 1. We look doomed to return to championship based on that performance and apart from coulson yet to be convinced that Stubbs signings are better than who we already had.

    You choose: inept tactic? Players do not understand tactics? All these players are just not good enough? No 9 waste of a jersey as are the two centre backs. Last season a distant memory and too much like previous three. Not a shot on target. Unless Stubbs is stevie Clarke in disguise we will be quickly back in championship
