    Merged: All The Oran Kearney Threads

    Win the 4 games against Dundee and Hamilton and hope it’s enough for the playoffs,surely by then the squad will be up to a two leg final scrap

    Reality check

    Reality check is we are 2 points away from survival that’s in spite of being shit most of the season.We will strengthen our squad over the coming weeks and I’m sure we will be comfortably safe come the end of the season

    Motivation Required

    Absolutely on the backside it was 15 euros a pint when I was working in Paris 6 weeks ago,anyways I’m very lucky to be in the position I’m in,I wish it was Paisley tomorrow for the Aberdeen game,I’m sure we will perform,let’s hope everybody can enjoy the festive season and enjoy being in the premier league,it was an unbelievable surprise to win the league last year,albeit we have had a bad start,but we are only 6 points off of 9th,there’s nothing like being a buddie [emoji106][emoji106]

    Motivation Required

    Whilst I never speak negatively about st.mirren I never would ,or fellow fans either ,i think this topic has left me laughing to myself.cringe is the correct word for the bulk of this.I wonder what Jim Clunie or Ricky Macfarlane used during the most successful time in our history.I also think that footballers drive there selves on (our own Scotland captain being an example). I think the motivation for any footballer should be to be respected by his football peers and an honest performance ethic for the supporters he represents young and old ,rich and poor,because everyone that gives his time and money to follow st.mirren deserves that.As for motivating ideas at work,nonsense,I have worked all over the world and I am at present in Kazakhstan,my motivation was fear of being unemployed and feed my family motivation enough,same for our team. Before you rip in to me it’s my first day off in 29 and on my 8th pint COYS

    Accounts to the Year Ended May 2018

    There have been many decent posts written here,and oaksoft has eloquently raised the correct rational that should be adopted by us.But this should also been the mantra of every club in the world. We have the cautionary tales of how financial problems ruined teams for long spells after they chased success.Many in England,Leeds being a standout,in Italy Parma in Scotland Rangers all had vast amounts of generated money misspent. Then we have the prudent teams like many in our lower divisions which don’t move up leagues or have cup runs.They sustain themselves with no other remit than provide senior football for their respective local community. Football business is like no other business as we all know there is no formula to base the growth on (we sold X last year so we know we will get that and try to reach Y this year). It is too fluid to determine. We might have three U16s right now that might bring in £3m in years to come it’s an unknown quantity. I would like to think we have always been one of Scotland’s bigger sides so with this comes the dilemma for each of our chairmen how much to spend to achieve what we deem as success a difficult job I really wish I had the equation for them but that is very elusiveI only ask that they match the financial commitment every st.mirren fan gives each year no more no less COYS

    Alcohol Ban to be Lifted?

    I’ve always hated the walk of shame across the row mid game,but at 51 my bladder is the size of a pea now

    Alcohol Ban to be Lifted?

    If it helps I was working in Auxerre in France the last week and got a ticket last night for PSG v Napoli before I flew home to sunny Thurso today,anyways this year champions league and europa league games are allowed alcohol in France ,to be honest the Paris fans are a bit arrogant and aggressive but nobody seemed too bad but then again their culture doesn’t dictate 10 pints on a night out [emoji106]

    Alcohol Ban to be Lifted?

    I think there is a place for it, you will have people that are enjoying the social occasion of going to a game and will take maybe one or two drinks in a stadium.The hard core football fan will baulk at the stadiums pricing and do his pre drinking at a local pub as normal,personally I use the 2 hrs around seeing st.mirren as respite before drinking loads later

    Our Golden Era 1977-1987

    Fantastic time for the team and it coincides with when I first went,my dad took me down from Thurso for my first game in 1977,I saw every heartbreak semi and (3 in a row and a league cup) great win in 87 but as a fan who only manages maybe 6 or 7 games a year now my hat goes off to all that weren’t lucky enough to see these games but still stick with the cause especially the lads that had to endure the 90s,I salute you all the old and the new,and us all after a slow start this year keep the faith
