    Great news! 
    Ryan is my favourite player at the club. He has been absolutely phenomenal for us. 
    Could be the best signing we will make this summer.

    Not sure it’s been posted elsewhere on the forum but looking like flynniesta is close to agreeing a new deal.
     
    smashing news if true!

    Would be nice. 
    I reckon he would be out of our price range though. 
    I think he could have a few offers from the English Championship.

    I doubt that two of those clubs would be able to prise our asset's from us.  Hearts are facing meltdown in a sea of recrimination and child like tears, St Johnstone are no bigger than us and are unlikely to pose an attractive proposition to any player currently donning the black and white. Motherwell are the only club that are worthy of mention as they are riding the cusp of a wave at this time and may for once be able to throw an extra few quid into the pot.  Our time to finally outperform these clubs is long overdue and surely on the horizon.
     
    Hladky - it would be great to keep him.  A legend in his own contract due in no small measure to the best performance I have ever seen from a goal keep during penalty kicks.  I fear he may well be tempted by the lure of excessive coin.  Although differing in position this reminds me of Tottie Beck leaving us, although many other examples exist my mind is somehow drawn toward Tottie.  I suppose Billy Thompson would be more appropriate but I shall stick with Tottie.
     
    Wallace - You know the lad did very well.  His perfectly picked pass for big Jon Obika's season saving goal was exquisite to the indeed.  At his age though I doubt that a bigger club than us would come a calling. Ross Wallace is set to finish his career at a big club, I would venture that he is very happy and will be going nowhere unless it is either retirement or at our behest.  Does Ross have another season in him? 
     
    I feel good about next season, if I dodge this virus and I am able to see it I hope at last for some progress.

    The last team to win the Scottish cup with an all Scottish team. It might also help the National team

    Why would we be losing Obika?
    He's on a two year deal.
    None of the teams you have mentioned could afford him, even if we were willing to sell, which I doubt we would be.
    He's also a player who has recently expressed a desire to extend his time at the club.

    And to be absolutely clear, I am not at all against a 14 team league next season. I’m just against doing it for a season or two for no other reason than to suit Hearts.

    Just to clarify, I was referring to the surplus £2 pot only.

    I believe SMiSA should collect the the monthly payments and continue to put aside the funds originally earmarked for share purchase. As I understand it, if Kibble decide they want out of the club at some point in the future, they must first offer their shares to SMiSA and, if this happens, I’d like the funds to be available immediately.

    If there’s no interest in funding supporters buses, how about the Panda Express instead ?

    Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I;m not reading through all the shite in a hope of joining in a similar discussion, but Furlough should be the norm for ALL Professional football players.  Why should they be treated any different? 
    If they have a massive Mortgage, then they can take a break in payments.
    If they have betting debts, hell mend them. 
    If they have to cut down on their Tattoos, so be it!  Think of the money they are saving on Coiffures  🧔  👨‍🦲
    Plenty of people would love to get up to £2,500 a month.
    I hope Saints are using this scheme, like all sensible businesses should..

    Shows how important the game against Hearts was - I'm pretty sure if Hearts had won the game and gone above us they'd be voting to put us down.

    Option 2 is not a go-er. Apparently if the season is declared void the TV people do not have to pay out. So declare as is or try and finish which is looking increasingly unlikely.

    If we do finish the league, at least Hladky is still in Scotland and he says he's sticking around until matters are resolved.

    Voiding the league means that you are effectively saying it didn't happen. Calling it as is, is going to piss off several football clubs but voiding it is going to potentially open football up to legal proceedings from sponsors and broadcasters who have shown a full season of football that is effectively stricken from the books and meant nothing. When you think about broadcasters like Sky who show the EPL and pay around £1.2 billion or whatever a season to do so, there is potential for a significant backlash across all of world football here.
    UEFA will almost certainly not leave themselves open to this possible outcome and for that reason, will more than likely dish out the direction to federations to call the placings as is. They won't be giving a toss about the issues of clubs all over Europe like Hearts, Rangers, Aston Villa or Bournemouth (who would be relegated from the EPL by a single goal)...any one of those and the legal challenge they present are small beer compared with your sponsors and broadcasters coming after you for telling them that season gone past should just be treated as a series of friendlies.
    For that reason they won't void.
    For the reason that they want their European competitions sorted as close to scheduled start date as possible, they won't allow for season to be extended.
    Think calling it as it stands is really the only option here.

    turrabuddie reacted to shull in Your Favourite St Mirren Television Highlights   
    Football highlights have been broadcast since the 1950's , I'm guessing via Scotsport, Sportsreel and latterly Sportscene.
    What Saints highlighted matches would you like to see again ?
    Up until the 1980's they were very few provincial club matches broadcast as the Telly dudes concentrated on the two sectarian clubs almost every week.
    Once we were in the 1990's there was stacks of coverage even in Division One with the great Football First.
    I have managed to remember three where the highlights were broadcast on a Saturday night and would love to see full highlights again.
    29/4/72  Dumbarton 1  St Mirren 2   Promotion battle.
    29/1/77   St Mirren 4  Dundee Unitit 1  Scottish Cup
    26/2/77  Motherwell v St Mirren  Scottish Cup  ( would love to see the whole match just to see that first half again )
    What would everybody else like to see again ? Surely the TV Companies must still have these highlights from through the decades.  Get them all on a Website and let
     us see them again.

    Quite a few Saints TV highlights matches from the the 1990's are easy to find and watch. 
    Countless times I have watched clips from the Millennium Season especially the class finish to the Game at Starks Park and also the April match at Somerset then the Title clincher a week later. 
    Funnily enough the drubbing by Caley Thistle had a certain deal of warmth to it. 
    A fantastic day out, invasion of the pitch and a top class speech from Lord Thomas Hendrie. 
    Can watch all of the above over and over again.
