  1. been trying to avoid this thread as no matter what you say the afflicted will never agree. From the link posted the UK has shown a steady decline in mortality rates due to improving treatments for every disease from TB to Cancer as Medical advances happen which is a tribute to the scientists and doctors here and abroad. There is an anomalous year however see if you can spot it from the figures provided in the link which make it clearer than the pretty graph although it shows it too (excuse the formatting). Yes thats right this year and anyone who says yes but in 1918 we had even more deaths so it proves its not unusual you really are smoking something strong. Guess what happened in 1918........Flu pandemic!!! Doctors and nurses in every hospital in the UK are fighting to save peoples lives and doing it very successfully however sadly many poor souls have died but please continue to deny that current events are not happening and if you happen to get Covid please refuse treatment it will save those medics and remove you from the gene pool, Darwinism at its best. Year Number of deaths Population (Thousands) Crude mortaity rate (per 100,000 population) Age-standardised mortality rate (per 100,000 population) 2020 608,002 59,829 1,016.2 1,043.5 2019 530,841 59,440 893.1 925.0 2018 541,589 59,116 916.1 965.4 2017 533,253 58,745 907.7 965.3 2016 525,048 58,381 899.3 966.9 2015 529,655 57,885 915.0 993.2 2014 501,424 57,409 873.4 953.0 2013 506,790 56,948 889.9 985.9 2012 499,331 56,568 882.7 987.4 2011 484,367 56,171 862.3 978.6 2010 493,242 55,692 885.7 1,017.1 2009 491,348 55,235 889.6 1,033.8 2008 509,090 54,842 928.3 1,091.9 2007 504,052 54,387 926.8 1,091.8 2006 502,599 53,951 931.6 1,104.3 2005 512,993 53,575 957.5 1,143.8 2004 514,250 53,152 967.5 1,163.0 2003 539,151 52,863 1,019.9 1,232.1 2002 535,356 52,602 1,017.7 1,231.3 2001 532,498 52,360 1,017.0 1,236.2 2000 537,877 52,140 1,031.6 1,266.4
  2. what a performance, couple of minor slips but all round good play, well deserved
  3. About time we gave someone a hiding now we just need an actual forward to score. No relaxing in the second half Saints
  4. think it was a harsh second yellow, takes the ball and St.J player goes over it
  5. I Don't disagree, I think Covid as it has developed has caused current pricing to be crazy and honestly think the club thought fans would be in the stadium by now hence the season ticket price v international subscriber price.
  6. The reason international fans get that is normally due to TV licensing rules which do not allow live match watching for UK fans, think this is a SFA or some licensing body rule but does allow non uk fans to watch live. This was I believe the way to ensure grounds were not empty but seems a nonsense in the current covid times and should IMHO have been suspended until some semblance of normality returns. SS It seems crazy to not allow all season ticket and international subscribers full access
  7. You are comparing apples to oranges, Reilly had one good season in the Championship, you trying to say that Brophy who has scored 2017-18 1 in 4 games 2018 - 19 1 in 3 2019 - 2020 1 in 3 2020 - 2021 1 in 5 ( a bad season for him which you are basing your opinion on) is worse? Gavin who I loved playing for saints had 1 season in the SPL in which he scored 1 in 8 For me if we can get him to score 1 in 3 I am very happy to welcome Brophy
  8. I agree one cap does not an internationalist make but my point was more that he has been involved at most levels of the Scotland caps system U19, U21 and full.
  9. I cannot believe the same people (mainly Ronnie) are even comparing Gavin Reilly to Brophy and praising him over Brophy, lets do a quick compare Brophy - Scotland International and played at all levels of U21's, league - Scottish Prem , goals 2018 - now 26 in 84 games (1 in 3) Gavin Reilly - never played any level for Scotland, League - EL1/2, goals 2018 - now 9 in 82 (1 in 9) Its not even the comparison that irks me but the writing off of a player before he even kicks a ball for us As I said before no matter what the club do some people are never happy
  10. Its more than our current strikers isnt it? so for me any help is welcomed.
  11. Ronnie if he is so rank rotten in your opinion why did he have a list of clubs chasing his signature? Ok its from a news article but "A number of Championship rivals are also believed to be looking including Luton, but he will also have the chance to remain in Scotland. We understand Aberdeen, Hibernian, Hearts and St Mirren are all looking to open talks with him over a free transfer move in the summer." Someone must see him as having some ability I guess 😲
  12. Some people are never happy, when was the last time Saints bought a capped 24 year old striker, this shows intent from the club to continue improving and moving forward when many clubs are going backwards
  13. fingers crossed this happens the boy is a class act, but its St.Mirren so not holding my breath
  14. At no point in the match did I feel we were getting schooled by Rangers a team that cost multiple millions of times the cost of our current team. I thought we competed very well and came close to scoring a number of times. We lack the composure of a Roofe or Morelos but then we cannot afford the likes of them. At the end Dennis had 2 shots blocked also so for me on a different day we could have at least scored one and had enough chances to at least draw, When was the last time Rangers had to fluke a win from us with a deflected goal and a stupid mistake from one of our players. In recent years they, celtic and a number of teams have systematically dismantled us winning easily. This season is the first where I have seen us compete in almost every game and have thought before each match that this game is winnable instead of hoping for a draw or low score loss. SS
  15. Think the game has been pretty even with a deflected goal and stupidity for the second but not looking like the teams are that far apart
  16. The ability to watch away games is new this season and was not available last season
  17. Fantastic result and we found how to score even if it was not the strikers
  18. Connolly is causing them problems, some poor passing but Rangers are very good at pressing and moving the ball, mind you they should be the cost of their team and their yearly losses bigger than out budget SS
  19. We need to get better at finishing, game should be over already if we could take chances. Connolly has been very good so far as have most if not all of the team
  20. Arseholes people like him
  21. no problem, I try not to read the dross or at least filter it out so those folks tend to be on my ignore list
