    St. Mirren v Spartans Betfred Cup 17/7/18

    AH! but to be fair we knew a lot of Jack's squad wouldn't make the grade so I just stuck to the Stubbs Signings

    Well it’s nice to see normal service renewed on the forum. Differences of opinion, friendly banter, snide remarks and Shull just thrilled at the excitement of the last half hour. Having watched both our games they were night and day. Thank feck somebody switched the lights on last night, so the team could show us something in the last half hour. Then again Complete darkness for the first 60 minutes would have struggled to conceal just how rank rotten we were. As Stubbs said the Tempo was too slow, the attitude of our players was all wrong and great credit must be given to Spartans for their efforts. They were up for it, playing to the whistle, they were playing for each other and they were throwing themselves at everything. A bit like we did on Friday. What about that wee rolly-polly keeper. Big Cook, Kellerman, Heaton and King towering over him but he took everything in the air. Then in the second half he had Mullen snapping at his ankles, but he kept him out. The inability of most St Mirren players to keep the ball down or win a header contributed to his success along with Cammy having a nightmare but that wee guy can be proud of his nights work unlike most of our team. You had to enjoy their celebrations when they scored the second. They had been denied proper celebrations for the first. By the time anyone realised the first one counted the moment had passed but the joy, smiles and disbelief on there faces as they all celebrated being 2-0 up against Premier League opposition (that’s us by the way) is something they will remember for a long time. Thank the heavens for Captain Fantastic and the night wasn’t a compete disaster. He came straight to the Fans at full time as well no chatter with the players just straight to the fans almost as if he was apologising for the performance. Top Man Stephen. Incidentally who’s been on shooting practice this week. Fantastic or not he couldn’t have hit a barn door on Friday night, but he drilled his chance into the net last night. A fantastic goal for a fantastic Captain. So, mister Cook, Kellerman, Heaton and King that’s who to look to. If you’re rank one-week train hard and put in the effort so you can improve like Captain fantastic did after his below average shooting antics on Friday. Oh, and please do or else we’re all going to be hissing louder than the DJ’s Tannoy last night If your efforts don’t improve.

    Poor Poz. I almost played the couldn't be arsed card myself but in the end I relented. My daughter really wanted to go and she can drive so with a designated driver and the prospect of a pint or two for me, I couldn't I really say no. I'm glad I did though. July football is very pleasant and the game was exciting for a 0-0. Mysterious team selection and the unexpected performance made it even sweeter. The last ten minutes were a little nervous and winning the shootout was the icing on the cake. I'm up for some more of this July football and I'm definitely going to be arsed going Tuesday. You have every right not to be arsed but by not being arsed you missed a good night or "you missed a fantastic experience." as I said in my original post. Do go to away league games by the way. Away games are much more fun. Be arsed or don't be arsed that is your prerogative. I'm not looking down my nose at you Bud that would make my eyes squint. Thanks for the POZ-itive part about the excellent post though. Much appreciated and mid July football is really quite pleasant I do recommend you try it.

    Summer Football – what an enjoyable experience that was last night. T shirts, sunshine, daylight and no fecking wind, rain, ice or snow to chill me to the bone. Funnily enough I still had a Bovril. I’m a creature of habit. To all you guys and gals who didn’t go because you couldn’t be arsed (I know a lot of people couldn’t go for real reasons) you missed a fantastic experience. The St Mirren Boys (and Girls) made all the noise and I think someone brought an amplifier for the Drum. The acoustics in the Chadwick Stand were something else. On seeing the team sheet, I was as bemused as most fans to see only two of Stubbs new signings in the Starting line-up. Kirkpatrick and Macpherson seemed out of place and that was certainly a talking point in the Killie Sports Bar which is located under their main stand. £2.50 a pint, that was a result on its own. The first 20 minutes were surreal. After reuniting with buds not seen since the Falkirk away day and acknowledging all the old faces in the crowd it was down to the action. It was like being in the championship again. St Mirren Dominated, “What a sh***y home support” bellowed out from the North bank who seemed to number a lot more than 823 and the 12 or so Killie fans who bothered to reply were as quiet as the tumbleweed blowing across the Livingstone End of the Tony Macaroni. The St Mirren fans and players looked more like a premier league outfit than Killie. I had to take a reality check to ensure I wasn’t dreaming. Bairdy brought me back to reality at one point but Sammy saved the day and well you know the rest. Penalty shoot out Brilliant. (Some shocking penalties though) Well done Sammy! I really enjoyed the game last night and thought the boys did good. Well done Alan Stubbs. Don’t want to get too excited BUT….. ON OUR WAY - WE’RE BACK

    Cheers mate. It would have been lonely sitting in that big stand all by myself. Looking forward to seeing the new Saints in action and embracing the philosophy of the new management team. Everyone knows last season's team was far short of the standards necessary for Premier League football but a fair few of the seasoned posters on here are up in arms because Stubbs had taken command cleared out who we all knew weren't good enough for the step up and has brought in a few fresh faces. Now admittedly we have never heard of most of them but the bottom line is Alan Stubbs has and that's good enough for me.. So stop bleating about things and think positive thoughts like Alan Stubbs is going be be good for the Saints. Jack Ross is Dead, Long Live Alan Stubbs. That's how it should work (till the next manager comes along)

    Don't see much on the Killie website about walk up ticket arrangements. I take it they'll be a wee portacabin somewhere selling tickets on the night. I will have to take the car, Any advice on parking. From what I found on the web ; "There is a car park at the ground, but this is for permit holders only. So it is a case of finding some street parking, or using one of the pay and display car parks located in the nearby town centre." Is the Chadwick Stand at the Dundonald Place end of the ground??????

    Pinged off an email with copy of booking. I see twitter is full of Bolton fans moaning about hotel and travel plans too. I won't hold my breath but reimbursement request has been sent.

    Who covers the cost of my pre-paid Scot-Rail Ticket. £20 quid down the drain which they won't refund because they haven't cancelled any of the six trains my return journey would involve. Feck and I only saved about two quid buying it in advance. That's about another 10 ticket gambles on journeys just to break even. Better odds on Paddy Power or one of their associates. Pity they don't do trains and hotels. When going to matches, advance planning is fecking useless. If it's not TV that's fecking up fixtures, it's internationals or last minute cancellations by officials who seem to think they can change a fixture with one weeks notice and now some overpaid players who want to watch the England game have gone on strike. Arrghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not even the first game of the season and the fans have been fecked over already. Sweden better win and ruin their day.

    Help ???

    Ok guys. I Thought about the unconscious Racism angle and my Brain tells me Oaky has got a point here. Even if unconscious Racism was a real phenomenon then how could the individual be at fault. His parents, peers, teachers, society, government, mates, partner and fellow forum members would have to bear the brunt of the blame for failing to CONDITION the poor individual for not being educated enough to function in a politically correct society where individualism and diversity must be recognised but never never mentioned because anyone could be offended. Then I thought Feck it and I googled it. People took the implicit association test to gauge their subconscious racism. Now the researchers behind the test admit it can’t always do that. Research says there are ways to reduce racial bias. Calling people racist isn’t one of them. So Oaky is correct on both fronts unconscious Racism is a flawed concept and calling people racist for using a witty pun is wrong And no one can argue because Google told me.

    Armour has chinks The writing was chinese Divs Armour has a chink in it. When I went to school that was a Pun. I think you are over thinking this !!!!!!!!! Long live free speech, Puns and the right to disagree. (oh feck I've used a Japanese ninja emoji. Someone might think it's racist if they don't know the difference between Japanese and Chinese Ninja's)

    Ha! Ha! Are you keeping secrets. Was that article about you?

    Help ???

    I love how it's ok to call him a bastard but as soon as an adjective is put in front everyone wet's their Knickers. Am I missing something, were McGeady's parents not Married when he popped out? You're a bastard (fine) You're a [take your pick] Bastard - (Hang the racist) Surely the offence is calling him a bastard. We seem to live in a world where describing someone by their heritage/race/nationality is more offensive than calling them a bastard, paedo, terrorist, murderer, etc. All these people seeking the removal of all these adjectives from our language are surely doing more damage to our society as everyone will have to have a uniform, tag which is not deemed offensive or differentiates different people. We are on slippery slope which can only erode everyone's freedom and identity. Jail the Moron because his behaviour was unacceptable not because he has limited vocabulary.
  15. East Lothian Saint

    Help ???

    Eh! That's an example of moronic behaviour The incident starts off with what appears to be light-hearted banter between Saints fans and McGeady as he leaves Love Street stadium. (acceptable) And the abuse turns nasty when a voice cries out: “F*** off you micky b*****d.” (Totally unacceptable and asking for trouble) Bit's in brackets might help keep you from having a go at the poor Chinese person you woukld have a go at.
