  1. One of my friends is a Villa Fan who asked me about Mcginn when he was rumoured to be joining, gave him a good writeup , last night got messaged by him saying I wasn't wrong that he is a class act and Villa faithful love him already as not only is does he seem to have everything ability wise but is also a great battler. Looking good for him so far
  2. When is a red card not a red card...when its a Rangers red card. So now its not a red card offence to lash out at an opponent off the ball. Admittedly it was a half hearted flick but he still did it as evidenced by them keeping the Yellow so if one of our players does the same or for that matter a Killie or whomever player does it do they just get a yellow as they have changed the rules?
  3. It may be an emotive argument but still true, the first thing more and more people are trying to do due to adverts pushing it in this country is look for someone to blame after all in your case it could not have been that the silly cow did not pick up her feet after noticing the step, no it was you the sly cafe owner that threw that step there just as she was about to enter your premises. We are all responsible for our own health and saftey, I agree where things are out of our personal control (overcrowding etc) then organisers should make allowances and control this but sometimes contrary to the fecking lawyers it really is our own bloody fault. When I was a kid if I fell out of a tree it was not the councils fault it was mine , if I trip over a step its my fault for not seeing it or being dumb enough to not lift my feet. Compensation and health and saftey has its place in a civilised society but lawyers have seen fit to screw everyone over with the if there is blame there is a claim rubbish. A smart person would think , "if I sit in a football ground I may be hit with the ball, If I sit behind the goal the chances are greatly increased"
  4. LPM how is this the clubs fault, you say The he should be obeying the rules and been sitting down then he could not get knocked over Then the The club in my and most fans opinions have went out of their way to be nice to him and offered him something when they did not have to offer anything other than a sorry to hear that. If you attend a sports game whether football , cricket , baseball even tennis you may get hit with a ball, its unlikely but it can happen, In 20:20 they even have a prize for catching a six hit into the crowd. Compo for its own sake is a sickness in this country
  5. I never said it was relevant or not, I was only saying what I believe the ref called
  6. think the ref indicated that he believed the final ball through came off one of our defenders so he couldn't be offside
  7. based on what I can read about him I agree on the experience but he sounds as if he has some quality about him
  8. If we can get him especially if its free then looks like a bargain. Based on the story when he left QPR fans were not happy to lose him and they sold him for £450k (ok its England so stupid money anyway) https://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/qpr-director-football-les-ferdinand-11851957
  9. Lets hope his giants can play abit too or we are just going to be Livingston
  10. Nice feedback Darloboy, hopefully he continues to improve with us and is a great asset

    Bet hes glad now he signed for Falkirk and not us
  12. Why is it bullshit? for a team like St.Mirren to be in National league 2 they would have a much higher turnover due to much of the money coming from tv revenue etc filtering down, due to their larger home crowds our turnover would of course then be higher. Statistics can be made to say anything
  13. It is when it would get you arrested for abusing shop staff, big guy throwing something at a wall, very mature.
  14. Where did you see this reported? or are you surmising from a lack of news with regards to him accepting? SS
  15. Where did he say that, I love the selective way people take things on here What he did say was I agree knuckle dragging morons opinions do tend to be shit but other opinions are valuable hence the debate on here. Why does the name St.Mirren sound shit? Please give your reasoning behind this and convince people of why Saints should change their name. Cleansing a name due to perceived connotations is no reason to do it so there must be other points for this. SS p.s. I have no issues with Paisley St.Mirren but remain to be convinced as to the case for dropping the Mirren
  16. https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/dundee-united/655056/dundee-united-leading-the-race-for-dunfermlines-nicky-clark/ If we are in the SPL and Dundee Utd can still offer him a better financial package they really are a team about to implode from debt, its nuts (if we were even interested)
  17. At times JR seems to be all out attack if they can score we will score 3 football which has worked in the main with very few hiccups. teams that are big and strong have fared better when they try and spoil expansive football like ours and JR has seemed reluctant to switch style during games although I believe a large part of that is due to not having the players to compete physical to physical. With a larger budget and a championship team most of JR's football would still be barcelonaesque attacking but you would probably have the money to have an option B although I did think Sutton could have allowed us to at least attempt plan B perhaps mixing it with A to keep the other team spinning. All in all a great manager to have, entertaining football and committed passionate players spurred on by him helping the fans be the same. SS
  18. Hopefully you are disappointed ITFCBlue and he does not sign If he does you are getting a potentially great manager
  19. The main thing I take from the herald piece is "Scott is yet to reveal his masterplan but insists at the heart of any decision-making will be the supporters’ best interests." Cannot see where he has broken that, plus unlike Rangers trotting out gimmick after gimmick to get fans to buy season tickets Saints have been open and honest about the plans for seating to give our team the best possible chance of competing at the level we all hope they can. So far from nailing Scott how about instead we applaud him and everyone at Saints for taking us from the brink of the 1st division to Champions of the championship in just over a season. If his and his cohorts decisions keep on as they are doing its a very good time to be a Bud, many of us have been here for the many many downs with several amazing but short lived ups. SS
  20. dont think many Morton fans will turn up to see us to lift the trophy before battering them (I hope on the second part)
  21. 87 is still very fuzzy after the players on the balcony of the townhall, but what I do remember of it was great.
  22. Fantastic mate will take it, do you get into the bar? I could pick it up there or else arrange my dad to pick it up earlier, whatever suits you is good for me SS
  23. Next request then, anyone got a Hazmat suit to borrow?
  24. Ticket office has no tickets so back to anyone on here hearing of anything and passing it on please. SS
