  1. That has been kicking about for about a year. Fergie has been championing the move but the previous management were undecided. Could be a goer now? On another topic Wigan have signed Shinnie from Derby - will they still want McGrath.
  2. The big problem is that the other clubs around us are mainly backed by very rich men. How do SMISA plan to compete with this?
  3. Norrie that's a rant based on pure speculation. Understandable, I know but what do you want them to say? The setup we have is that like most Premiership clubs the football side is in the hands of the MD and the Manager. They will talk when when something is happening and not before. Don't get stressed by something out of your control.
  4. Sadly, the game has changed. When we signed these guys the Juniors was a stepping stone to the pro game but it no longer is. Even the lower leagues up here are not the rich picking grounds they once were. The Academy system has changed how young players are developed - so many get discarded in their late teens and many of them give up the game completely.
  5. Lafferty now a free agent? Any takers? 😳
  6. He did - mind you it looked more like a good save rebounded off him into the net.
  7. So that's Goodwin, Davidson, Martindale, McPake and Mackay all for the push?
  8. I hear we can't produce a team sheet as some of the youg guys have to home from school to have their tea first. Hope their parents don't make them do their homework before they let them back out or we're really fecked. 😷 😷
  9. Do they wear the masks and the suits?
  10. Was there not one on Ferguslie where they built the John Neilson Comprehensive? What, me, no. I was educated in an Institution.
  11. Surely those who want a greater democratic say in how things are run have a beef with SMISA and how their representatives behave on the board. You have to sort out SMISA before you can influence the board. Does SMISA membership give you a vote at the AGM. No, it's shareholders who vote at the AGM. If you want your voice heard on every issue - I for one would love to hear how you plan to do it as it's the major flaw in fan ownership. Good luck.
  12. Does this mean we get our players back? Excluding wee Stevie of course.
  13. It's one thing for opposing fans to kick the club whenever we're down. It's another when people on here constantly feed them by posting on here. It's a nothing affair, a slap on the wrist thing and quite funny as well. In the words of my granddaughter "Let It Go"" ffs.
  14. Gary Player once said "The harder I practise, the luckier I get." It certainly did him no harm.
  15. As long as they don't mind what we call them. Answers please in a plain brown envelope to Shull. I'll start: cnuts
  16. Saw him play at the London Stadium against Stoke about 5 years ago. I think it was the worst game of top league football I have ever seen in my adult life. Both teams were awful and Antonio was about the worst. He played as a right wing back and he hadn't a clue what to do. He basically ran up and down the right wing area about 10 yards either side of the half way line. Nobody gave him the ball. The abuse he was getting from his own fans was dreadful to hear. Fair play to the lad, he's turned his career around, but my cousin's mates basically thought he was a waste of a jersey at the time.
  17. Lick of paint? Not that I'm accusing KFC of tasting of one!
  18. Nonsense, 60 is the new 40. 70 is the new, er, it'll come to me in a minute. 💤
  19. Oi, 64 is not old you young whippersnapper! 🧓
  20. Not according to that poor American lassie?
  21. One meeting and everybody is at each other's throats, raised voices and insults flying everywhere. Fan ownership needs the right people at the top which will require some tough decisions. It also needs the fans to put up and shut up until the club is on a proper footing. It will all end in tears you know.
  22. McGrath, who yesterday was worth about £250K plus two players, today is worth hee-haw. He'll probably sign a pre-contract with Aberdeen in January and be away then for buttons
  23. Christ, that must be a hell of an injury for the lad. He broke a bone in his foot 4 months ago and he's still on the injured list.
