    Saw a Dunfy fan moaning on twitter at the weekend , he , and some others , had been giving the players abuse , and Dorrans told him to f**k off and gave him the wanker sign ! 😂

    Fair play to Dorrans. I’m all for fans being able to vent their frustrations, but if it starts to get abusive they deserve the Cantona treatment.

    McGrath is hardly baresi at the back mate? My opinion is Scott Allan would make us tick and would waltz into our team. It’s all about opinions mate.

    The one thing Allan would have consistently provided is the fundamental thing we have been missing so far. A good final ball. We have seen all to rarely this season what can happen with good delivery such as Tanser provided for Shaughnessy yesterday.

    Why, when you have someone on ignore, do you still get notifications when they try to engage with you?

    More to the point, why, when you have someone on ignore, and they know this as you have helpfully informed them (and the whole forum) so that they don't get the impression that you're not replying because you don't have answers to their inane dribblings, do they still try and engage with you and cause these notifications?

    Maybe it's just one of those unanswerable questions like "why is there something instead of nothing?"

    It won't surprise me if I now get a notification of an answer to this by someone I have on ignore.

    I’m going to have a stab at answering that one for you Slarti.

    If you have someone on ignore, who you don’t want to engage with you and you don’t want to receive messages telling you that person has tried to engage with you, then my suggestion would be that you don’t reference that poster in a mocking or derogatory fashion in your own posts.

    As ever, I’m here to help.

    On another topic, does anyone remember the good old days when BuddiieinEK was an valued and positive poster on this forum. Literally all he does now is whine and moan about everything. I have taken to skimming his posts in the method historically recommended by Shull. It’s too depressing for words. If you’re reading this BinEK, I’d seriously consider giving up on supporting the Murn. I really don’t think it’s for you any more.

    Gee! I didn't know there were so many places to play golf in Scotland. Thank you, now I know so many great courses! But really, I don't think it's a good idea to host games and start your own clubs if you've never played there. I think you have to take Paisley - you said it has gorgeous views. And the disadvantage isn't as bad and is clearly better than the disadvantage that you might get the ball cut. While I play for myself and don't go to games or clubs, I do have a golf cart, a club engraved with mine, and of course my favorite golf shoes. Hopefully someday I'll make up my mind and be able to show off my golf accessories to other players.

    Anyone who talks about needing 'to hold our position among the St Johnstones and Motherwells of this world in the top flight" needs a kick in the stones. How many St Johnstones and Motherwells are we up.against exactly? emoji850.pngemoji12.png

    Must admit I hate that pluralising of things that there’s clearly only one of. 
    Who started that pish?

    I personally spoke to a steward of over 20 years experience.

    I will not betray a confidence as he had to sign a non disclosure agreement.

     

    Sorry, just catching up with this thread and have a small, pedantic observation.

    If your source signed an NDA and then told you, does that not in itself make him untrustworthy? 😉

  7. Could Hibs afford McCarthy?

    If he’s leaving I’d much rather he went to England. 
     

    Even after almost 50 years of supporting St. Mirren, you never quite get used to being the absolute bitch of teams like Aberdeen and Hibs.

    I have just seen this posted on the St. Mirren Fans face book page and on John White the Liaison officer’s face book page.


    "Asigura Facilities Management Ltd are delighted to have secured the stewarding contract at St Mirren Football Club. It is our aim to engage with the club, the fans and all interested parties to enhance the match day experience for all involved. 


    Asigura Facilities Management Ltd are currently recruiting for both Safety Stewards and SIA Licensed Stewards, the rates of pay will vary between £10-£12 per hour depending on the role”. 


    I was wondering who the stewards were at the recent Hearts game. The one I spoke to did not even know which stand was which. 


    A quick Google search will tell you that Asigura Facilities Management has only one director, £100 in share capital, has filed no accounts since it was set up in March 2020. The sole director is Darren Baillie who is listed elsewhere as a joiner. The Company is registered at a house in Airdrie. He was previously a director of Renderworks Ltd another Airdrie company.


    Given these folk are responsible for our (and our children’s) safety at the ground I am a bit worried. Is there any truth is the rumour that this company will also be doing the catering ? Is there any connection directly or indirectly with Kibble ?


    Asking for a friend.
     

    Can’t speak for the rest of your post but there is absolutely nothing unusual about a company incorporated in March 2020 not having produced accounts by now. 
    If you assume that their financial year end was 30 March, usually companies have 6 months to produce accounts after the FYE.

    He's a free agent and he's 31 , he has played less than 100 games over the last 5 seasons. If he wants to finish his career playing regularly he's going to have to look at all offers !

    Must admit I didn’t realise he was that old. Thought he was still mid to late 20s.

    Jason Cummings for Dundee's second goal was down our left hand side.

    I am not having a go at Dunne. Defensively he has generally been ok but the defence as a whole has looked very suspect compared to last season. Having a huge gap between Power and McGrath/Kiltie doesn't help. But Dunne's insistence in blootering the ball up the park doesn't help create anything. On Saturday McGrath came back looking for the ball from Dunne but he ignored him and fired it straight out the park trying to reach Tait. But I think unfortunately the long ball is what the manager wants.

    No it wasn’t. It was down our right and crossed into the middle for Cummings. 

    Correct. For me the damage for that goal was done by Henderson’s inability to stop the run down their left or the cross into the box.

    Although Cummings was largely unmarked.

    And Kiltie who is never premier quality is a poor signing also. Only Tanser is decent signing...long way short the squad. Carrying a lot of passengers like McAllister for one..

    On showings so far it’s hard to disagree with any of that.

    Brophy - Anonymous

    Kiltie - Anonymous

    Main - At least he’s been involved and causes teams some level of problems, but his lack of composure in front of goal is unparalleled at this level.

    Tanser - Of the more offensive newcomers he is the one beacon of light. Unfortunately to date, most of the dangerous balls he’s played into the box have been to the aforementioned dumplings. 
    On signings generally though, I’d say Dunne and Power have been “decent” too.

    I do not like the formation this season nor the personnel being used to try and implement it.

    Last season we played one up top who was isolated. This year we go with 2 with the midfield support pushed higher than last season. Now we have 1 DM and last year 2. We have gone from having too many midfielders playing deep to too few.

    We try and get the ball in the box quickly and often. This results from far too many hopeful punts up the park, especially from Dunne, in the expectation that Main will beat two CBs sitting on top of him. Most crosses will come from the WB. Tanser does have a good cross but tends to drift out the game too much waiting for something to happen. Tait works hard but has slowed down and is pretty hopeless at crossing. Henderson can cross but cannot defend and is too inexperienced to be a first team automatic pick.

    However my biggest issues are Irish ones. McCarthy is no question our best CB but is not in the team as Jim wants a left footed CB. We didn't have a left footed CB last season but still had a very good defensive record so does it make much difference, if any? Certainly not when it means our best defender is left on the bench.

    And secondly we have an outstanding talent in McGrath being used to pick up second balls from the long punts instead of creatively trying to dictate play through the middle. His talents are being wasted as we have turned into a long ball team.

    I get what Jim is trying to do. I don't like it and do not enjoy it as I prefer a fast passing game like Hibs or Celtic, and do not think we have the players to execute his new formation properly. Long punts are a turn off.

    I think in his short time so far, Dunne has proven himself to be an extremely competent and fairly pacey defender. Not one goal conceded this season has come from our left hand side.

    However, he needs to forget the Franco Baresi/Paolo Maldini Hollywood passes (which he doesn’t seem capable of) and just pass the ball to the midfield. I wouldn’t even begin to know the stats, but so far I’d be very surprised if Dunne isn’t one of the most guilty players when it comes to conceding possession. 
    In short, he needs to stick to what he’s good at.
