First team sub

First team sub (7/14)



  1. We needed to win today to keep chances of top 6 alive. Even if we beat Livi and Killie, I don't think that will be enough. Looking at Livi's remaining fixtures, they have a much easier run-in than we do.
  2. First thing to say is that the points were the most important thing today, after Wednesday's result. So, well done to the team as a whole for a much improved performance from midweek. Despite having less possession than the visitors, we dominated the game for the most part. Lucky for us that Main was passed fit. Put in another fine shift for the team. Watt did OK but still looks a stretch off fully fit, and needs to finish off chances if he wants to be a striker. Not MOM for me. That goes to either Strain or Flynn, take your pick. Both had a fine game. Inability to score when on top still the most concerning aspect of our game. Needed a couple of fine saves from Carson, who had his usual solid performance, to prevent an RC equaliser near the end. That would have been throwing 2 points away, but luckily we held on. Thought the ref was just OK, nothing special. For me, he let too many fouls go. Finally, if we have top 6 aspirations, we must back this result up with a win in Perth next week. COYS!!
  3. ThNks for the fixtures, Ronnie. Useful to have the information listed. Agree that Livi is in pole position to get a top 6 place. The other 2 places are still up for grabs. Just hope we haven't chosen this moment to lose the form we were showing a few weeks ago.
  4. Afraid last night's result asks serious questions about our ability to be a top six side. If we are to be serious challengers for the top half of the league, I think we now need 6 points from our next two games. So, players need to get back to best form quickly. At least we are at home on Saturday, so that should help. COYS!!
  5. Lasley interviewed on radio. Knocked back suggestion that he might be off to Motherwell as CEO.
  6. Welcome back, Rascal. People with rational thought and encouraging words for the team always needed.
  7. We need to do to Motherwell what we did to Aberdeen after JG got his marching orders. We could really do with points from this game and next Saturday at home to Ross County. COYS!!
  8. Great goalie. Sad to hear the news. Taken too soon at 64. Hard to believe.
  9. Despite Saturday's result, there should definitely be points for us at Motherwell........ and at the two games after that (Ross County at home and St. Johnstone away). If we can't get at least two wins from those three games, we aren't really a top six side.
  10. Wishing big Jonah all the best in his recovery. He's been a fine addition to our squad and always gives 100% in games. Stay strong, Big Man, our thoughts are with you. Looking forward to seeing you in the black and white stripes again.
  11. Would have been worse if he'd signed for Motherwell before last weekend!
  12. Agree that it's good to still have Big Joe and Baccus at the club. Thought for sure that Baccus would go a couple of weeks ago. Watt is a bit of a gamble but if SR can do with him what he's done with Curtis Main, then it's definitely worth a try taking him on. Small is an unknown quantity tome but if he's coming from a EPL club, he must have something about him. All in all, I think it's been a decent window despite our financial troubles.
  13. Hope your confidence is well-founded. I'm fairly confident myself, but this is St. Mirren we're talking about, even if this season is going pretty well so far.
  14. Potential banana skin, but keep the faith and Buddies will come through tomorrow. COYS!!
  15. Just adding my own respects to everything that's been said about Frank by others above. One of the great players in a great era for St. Mirren. Those of us who watched that team regularly were so fortunate to be around at the time. I'll always remember the anticipation and excitement of going to Love Street on a Saturday to watch them. Never to be forgotten. Thanks for all the memories, Frank.
