  1. Cheers for the info. I think mine might have come at last, but I'll need to pick it up from the delivery office.
  2. Personally, I think enough's enough. The elderly and those with underlying health conditions should shield, and let everyone else get on with their lives.
  3. Why is it odd to be able to agree with someone about one thing, but hold an opposing view with that person about something else?
  4. Has anybody bought from https://www.saintsshop.co.uk/category/retro-shirt and if so, how long did it take to arrive?
  5. Sneezing is not a symptom of covid19, though. Apologies to any teachers on here, but the profession appears to have lowered its standards, unfortunately.
  6. @div is online...
  7. Well, it would look too suspect were I to materialise straight away. 😉
  8. Haha! Nobody's that brazen, surely it's just a coincidence?
  9. I have to admit I have no idea why Ricky or Faraway have been confined in here, especially given one of the very recent posters in this thread has behaved far worse. Both are actual fans too. @div, free @faraway saint and @St.Ricky , please!
  10. Shull! Give me a break, please! Right, well I know when I'm not wanted. Just a wee reminder, before I disappear, that the 50/50 Lotto starts tomorrow. First prize is half the takings.
  11. Obviously I used hypothetical examples. However, there are gradients of supporters: e,g, 1 - Fans who will watch the club if we get to a final or perhaps if we're on the TV. They might well own a club scarf or other merchandise. e,g, 2 - Similar to the above, but this fair-weather supporter might watch a few games every season, but only if the club are doing well. e.g. 3 - A frequent spectator, who might watch a few games each season - the big games, plus others if nothing better to do. Might buy the shirt. e.g. 4 - A serious fan - will watch most home games. Buys the shirt each season. e.g 5 - Proper fanatic. Season ticket holder and also attends some away matches. Not all fans have the same level of interest in the club. However, I'd expect those who spend an hour or so each day on a fans' forum would be pretty fanatical about their support.
  12. I expected better from you, Oaksoft. Surely you can articulate yourself without resorting to profane abuse. Oh, and will you please provide me with some examples of me 'attacking other posters' and my 'first grade c***ery', as I genuinely don't have a clue what you're referring to. Absolutely. Why are you even discussing grades of fan unless you are supporting the view that some are better than others? So the guy who doesn't get a season ticket, and cannot be bothered going if it's raining is exactly the same calibre of fan as a guy who buys second hand clothes and eats beans on toast to buy a season ticket, then?
  13. Me too. I know it's a historical thing, but I would prefer a rivalry with Partick - they're much closer geographically and we are both the same size and live in the shadow of the Old Firm. Plus I don't like their fans - hipsters (beardy weirdies, bohemians), students and those whose sensibilities are too fragile to cope with the bigotry of the Old Firm. I really don't like Thistle, actually.
  14. You do know that this is a forum for fans of St. Mirren FC, don't you? I mean, watching the team is supposed to be the thing we all have in common and the raison d'etre of the forum. If there's one safe space anywhere on the internet for people to brag about how much they love St. Mirren, and how many games they go to, then this really is that place. Just ignore this part of the forum if you find it so annoying, and stick to arguing about the Coronavirus in General Nonsense.
  15. I am far from well off, financially. Even if we could go abroad, I will not be able to afford to as I spent my spare money on season tickets. My choice and I'm not looking for a round of applause, but the club means more to me than a week in the sun. That is strange, but you know how it is. 😄 Some would say coming on to a St. Mirren fans forum and criticising people for encouraging others to support the club in a perilous time is rather abrasive behaviour. As I said above, I'm not looking for a round of applause but the truth is I won't be going abroad this year even if it becomes feasible. If you care to locate my post earlier you'll see I already commiserated those who are experiencing financial difficulties.
  16. Would that be the same Hitler who led a National Socialist party, and wrote a treatise on National Socialism?
  17. I agree with you, Shull. This is not about breaking rules, it's about Brexit and a whole load of other stuff. BTW, just out of curiosity, do you drive a black cab?
  18. Absolutely. No class at all.
  19. I believe popular culture today is toxic. It's profane, inane, overtly sexual and materialistic. It's inevitable as we approach the End Times, though and I wouldn't want to encroach upon others' rights to indulge themselves, hopefully they still get to hear the Gospels and choose to accept or reject it. Interestingly Sir Issac Newton apparently calculated that the End Times would come about around 2060, and I think he might be right
  20. An extract from the club's latest statement: Obviously some people are unable to help the club out financially at this moment in time, and that's perfectly understandable. But well done to those that have! Let's keep the club alive.
  21. Nobody did. I think you'll find I was asked, actually.
  22. I'm not really sure Hitler was a right-winger. His government certainly created a lot of jobs, and I'm pretty sure he thought all the banks were run by Jews. National Socialism's a form of Socialism if you ask me.
  23. Cummings is obviously a hypocrite and a liar. He's basically a spin doctor, so amorality and disingenuity are essentially prerequisites for the job. Are you, and the others on here who are banging on about it, really surprised?
  24. Well the idea that an extremely libertarian government would use the state apparatus to oppress the public is slightly odd, however I know what you mean. I'm just being an arse!* * Faraway Saint: "Aren't you always?"
  25. You do know what a libertarian is, don't you?
