    Really disappointed. Celtic were not very good. We lost two very poor goals and simply cannot score. Gogic the only one who looked like scoring. Two or three great efforts one brilliantly saved by Hart. Killtie missed an absolute sitter. Mandon  played very well but did not look like scoring. Ayunga came on and looks more and more like a pub player. Fraser was also very poor. Rest all played OK but we lack quality going forward. Missed Bolton who , I think , would have stopped the first goal. Boy who came on for Elvis was not impressive. Three huge games coming up against the three bottom teams. Win less than two and season could crumble away. 

    Surely the transfer window would have been the time to offload Ayunga and Olusanya, both of whom are very far short of this level of football. On the plus side, Gogic is some player does the work of two men. Hope for much more from Scott. Fingers crossed.

    Of course! It was just my opinion that it's not overpriced and I stated my reasons why I thought that. This is a St. Mirren discussion forum, people will not always agree with you. However, if you thought I was somehow being rude, please understand that I was just offering my own perspective. It was nothing personal. :) 

    👍 no problem. Think we should be in good spirits just now, heard we are 3-0 up at half time in Edinburgh 😁

    I don't think it's overpriced. It's £25 to watch us play the Scottish Champions. A league game versus Ross County would cost about that!

    There probably won't be a big crowd, which is a shame! Those who lobbied the club to give the Old Firm one stand claimed it wouldn't affect attendances. In future, if our own fans aren't willing to attend in numbers, it would make financial sense to revert to giving them two stands - at least for Cup games.


    It’s only my opinion that it’s overpriced, if that’s ok ?

    Disgraceful pricing.



    Saints 1 Green Vermin 0

    Estimated Attendance 4887

    Think this is overpriced as well and as the ticket office is closed until Monday, it may be too late to purchase my own seat for the match . After the cup massacre last season and the recent league match which was surrendered within five minutes, missing out might not be such a bad thing. Unless away fans are able to acquire some Saints tickets, I think there won’t be a big crowd at this match. Saints have only themselves to blame. 

  5. Manager seems content with the squad as it is, hence no additions. Hibs have swapped half a team in the last few days, mostly reserve players of course, but have a feeling we are in for yet another away defeat tomorrow. Fingers crossed that doesn’t come to pass. 🤞

  6. A rather less painful result than usual against Rangers, and we made a game of it in the second half but lack of a goal scorer as said earlier will ultimately cost us dear. Scott looked promising and Gogic was best man on the park but I cannot understand Robinson persisting with Ayunga. Maybe Scott will take his place, I sincerely hope so, as lack of pace, inability to trap a ball and jumping with divers boots on ,combined with minimal effort do not make for a footballer. A few of the teams near us have some games in hand and we could find our fifth place vanishing very soon if this awful form continues. Vast improvement required.

    The injury he has recovered from historically ended players careers. He cannot be expected to be operating at peak match fitness. These injuries can be both physical and mentally challenging to recover from. 
    It’s not as though he was scoring like KVV of Motherwell before his injury. 

    Agree with you, but he is not good enough for this level of football, nor was before the injury. Cannot afford to have a passenger , best give a free transfer back to England non league. 

  8. The forward line is generally quite poor but in my opinion, Ayunga should be dropped at once. He had his chance as perhaps a sympathy vote after a long injury, but he contributes nothing, is slow, cumbersome, cannot jump, tackle or pass. Times up, get rid during the window, as at least Mandron has a football brain and much more likely to score or make a telling pass. Was impressed with Lewis when he came on as sub. Fingers crossed for the draw later, no old firm please. 

  9. Certainly won’t be on my, or I should imagine, most peoples tv. Just as a comment on the Celtic game ,which was covered by Sky tv, I could imagine the executives holding their heads after 6 minutes of a live match realising that thousands would be turning off as the game was over by that time. I cannot afford to subscribe, nor have interest In the vast majority of their output anyway, so no sympathy for Sky, or the other companies.

    It’s on Sky. For many years they dictate what time Celtic and rangers away games are held. 
    Are you going?

    Just back. Seldom are games over and done with in less than a minute, this was an exception. But for our goalie, it could have been a cricket score. Glad football ceased for a few weeks as it’s been misery recently. Oh, did you go ?

    I understand that referees making the step up to the top division will lack experience but do these referees ever get their first matches in the top league with Celtic or Rangers games first? I very much doubt it. That is unfair. It should be a level playing field for everyone. 

    I would like to see the statistics on that. If they are deemed good enough for the top league then any matches should be considered. 

    The referee and his west stand assistant had a pretty standard game. Fcuking awful. The weakness of the assistant referees to get involved in helping the on field ref with key decisions in the game is baffling at times especially when the incident is clear and obvious and invariably directly in front of the assistant. It seems that all assistant referees only involvement is with ball leaving pitch and offsides. Given the latter is now VAR decided for goals it seems they receive a huge amount of cash for fcuk all.
