    Boozing.- Why bother?

    Wetherspoons App. Its feckin brilliant. I've used it all over the UK and it works perfectly every time. I invest a few bob in alcohol and not just drinking it. Couldn't afford any substantial gamble in wetherspoons though at £1308 a share. It's one of the best business models in the UK with expensive shares and cheap beer. I like a wee eggs benedict for breakfast I'm with Slartibartfast on this one. I just love the app.

    Boozing.- Why bother?

    Oh the memories came flooding back. I fair enjoyed reminiscing about ma Capri, My speedboat and a few anytime, anyplace, anywhere girls. Don't think any of them drank Martini though. Anyone remember Bezique, Volari or Babysham which at one time or another were the in drinks . Not sure how to approach this complex question on a forum but in the pub the logic would be. People drink for many reasons but the previous generation. which in my case would be yours Ricky. set the example to their kids. Most of my generation were following the example of your generation who did not exactly adhere to responsible drinking and taught your youngsters how to drink to excess. The Scottish round system means drinking is costly and is always done to excess. The working-class man always stood his round and anyone who didn’t was excluded from the company. So everyone who drinks has been socialised properly and anyone who doesn't it's daddy's fault. Blame your Old man, Ricky and get a round in I'll have a Lager

    St Mirren v the West Lothian criminals

    On train home after a night in Paisley and little regard to the drink responsibly campaign. 3 points well earned and the momentum continues is the big positive which out weighs all the negatives some people on here are spouting. Maybe we should start a post responsibly campaign on the forum. I'll drink to that but maybe not too responsibly. COYS. see you all next Monday. Ya moaning faced .......

    Ha! Ha! Mrs Happy is accompanying me today. I'm honoured. We're on the train. Heading through for lunch and a few pre match aperitifs. Her last game was Dumbarton so hopefully she's carrying a bit luck. She blames me for everything that's wrong with the world no matter the predicament but what does she know. She thought Stubbs was a good manager. Massive game today. I just hope I'm Mr Happy at 5pm. See you all there COYS.

    Enjoy your beers and your gig at the Barrowlands. It's sold out. If I was you I'd get in Early in case someone from Glasgow steals your seat.

    Brendan Rogers Sellic.......

    If true it looks like Rogers is jumping ship. Celtic have had no competition since he arrived and suddenly when Gerrard appears he fecks off. Cowardly if it's true. It would be funny if Lenny got the interim gig and pumped Gerard in every game. That would have the double edged sword of putting Gerrards gas at a peep and confusing the Sellic board over who to appoint as next manager.

    The Tony Fitzpatrick Appreciation Thread

    Things have been reasonably harmonious on the forum since the team started performing. It seems most of us are happy that OK is the man to take us forward or at least those who don’t are a bit quieter. Hopefully we are all starting to come together get behind the Manager, the Team, the Board and working hard to get Tony an OBE (Overtly Big Expectations). For those of us who were there the power of Unity was immense at Tyncastle. The 606, plus the extras in Hospitality, were the hard-core die-hards who go to most away games and together we shouted the place down. W7, who were behind me to my left, were in good voice and the much-maligned Josh was conducting them like a maestro. Well done but the rest of us weren’t exactly quiet either. The buds in the section to my right were also inspired by events on the park and started just as many chants causing the whole stand to join in the more well-known songs. The Unity was clear and even Graham Speirs commented on one of his blogs how St Mirren wouldn’t go down without a fight when their support was as passionate as the Buds. Even the Hearts fans we drank with after the game highlighted our efforts. OK says we won the battle of the fans and our support with the Drum was instrumental in the team keeping their heads up when hearts scored. We haven’t really seen that kind of Joint Victory since JR left and we can all blame AS but now the team are playing their part let’s get behind them and OK. I hope it’s not another false dawn. A glimmer of hope is usually followed by a pumping from Hamilton or Livi but something tells me we’re onto something good. Let’s all stick together and play our part on Saturday and every other matchday till the end of the season. Let’s get arses on seats so the team can show us the way and get our arses off them again with more goals. I just love a wee jump up and down. One Town, one Team, There’s only one TF.

    Aberdeen v St Mirren 16/02/2019

    I thought the thread for this was created ages ago but it appears not. I'm surprised too. This will be the second game this season I've missed. Ironically I've friends from Aberdeen coming to visit. Having taken in the past three Games at Pittodrie and watched the team ship 4 goals on each occasion, maybe my non attendance won't be a bad thing. Sod's Law but hopefully your right. The first time I don't go, we'll bag all 3 points. I hope so. COYS

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    They are not slow in giving it out when griping about me going to old firm games. Their non appearance when the team could have done with some support was noticeable. It was one of three things that pissed me off. The team being the first. You can moan at me next week when I don't go to Aberdeen. Why are you on here anyway. Don't you have a wedding to enjoy. I'm working tomorrow so I'm not in the pub and have feck all better to do than post on here. Get someone up to dance and stop being antisocial and get off your phone. Do something constructive and buy a round. Have a good night and congrats to the happy couple

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    The South stand was empty. The cup is an ideal time to support a family stand. All season I go to as many games as I can whilst others call for boycotts and criticise me for going to away games. Many of these critics claim to sit in the south stand. Where were they today Simple question. And who maintains the scoreboard badly?????

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    Each to there own mate. I'm ranting because the season is over. The empty stand was noticeable. It's not your fault but it detracts from what looks like a certainty that we are going down. Do you know the scoreboard maintenance guy too. If so. Sorry again. SMTID unfortunately

    I sit in the West and if we looked quiet your end was desolate. Very poor turn out compared to most weeks

    Yeah I realised this slight mistake as soon as I posted it but you get the drift. Fixed it

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    Right! Three things pissed me off today and one was obviously the team. Number 2 was the empty South stand. These are the so called fans who scream about boy cotting old firm games and moan about not being able to sit in their own seats. They were all empty today boys n girls. WHY?. The third thing was the score board. Why the feck does it not work. Does it upset the players when they see the opposition are winning. All the more reason to get it fixed. That and the fact the fans quite like to know how long there is to go. I could rant about the team and I want to BUT. SMTID unfortunately.

    Magic has gone..

    I was a little bit morose on Wednesday and pretty pessimistic about playing the Arabs but it's Friday now. Tickets for match and Train secured. 12 O'clock meet in the pub tomorrow and we're on our way. Just when you least expect it, Saints will turn up and we'll be on our way to the next round of the cup. I'll keep taking the tablets.

    St Mirren v Dundee United Cup Game

    A storm started brewing last night that could go into Saturday. The SDA with one end packed full of Arabs will be one grey miserable place if they knock us out the cup just after the game where a lot of fans realised the great escape mark 2 looks as unlikely as Ryan Edwards being nominated for player of the year or Josh Heaton being worth 250k. I have my ticket. I will be there. A win here is vitally important to give us some confidence going forward but I fear the worst. Hope my fears are unfounded and your ferry sails but it looks like we've as much chance of staying up as the Titanic.

    St Mirren v Motherwell 6th Feb 2019

    These midweek matches are murder. Midday cocktails on the Edinburgh train. The Mojito Express is on it's way. Tonight is a big game. I hope to see most of our new signings in from the start. Ethan got roasted on Saturday and seemed totally awestruck as the game just passed him by. Muzek at LB is a no brainer. Tansey also looked lost justifying some of the abuse our fans were giving him. Surely McAlister will play from the start. Paul McGinn is certainly versatile and provides cover for midfield and defence so I would bench him and play corbu at RB. Big Anton looked solid on Sat and with Pepescu and Baird beside him that should shore up the defence. Dreyer looks useful and Jackson has looked livelier in the last couple of games. I would like the Duck to start too but we need a midfield. S McGinn isn't a ball winner so who plays beside dreyer and Mcalister is the problem. And that's before you even consider Morherwell. Football management can get complex which is probably why clubs pay big bucks for managers and don't just let any Shull, dick or Harry with a key board on a forum pick the team. Feck it. In OK we trust. I'm getting back on the Mojito Express. See you all tonight.

    The International Rangers v St Mirren - 2nd February 2019

    As they say in the song. We'll go wherever..... and that means a wee trip to Hell n back today. Hopeful as ever. Not many songs about Ducks emerging victorious from the fires of hell but.... The first was scored by Duckens would be a heavenly start.
