  1. My brother in law, father in law and nephew are all there. I quite like all of them, but i still cant bring myself to want them to win. C'mon the Eintracht!
  2. Agreed, though I still think, with the squad we have, we surely have enough to get another 3 or 4 points which is realistically all we should need - and if we can't, surely we have enough to overcome the likes of Arbroath or ICT in the play offs? Personally I'd sack him at the end of the season if we end up in the play offs, regardless of whether we win them.
  3. Ooh, someone's been on a management course.
  4. Scores stay like this we just need to win by 4 tomorrow to make top 6. Easy peasy.
  5. Some of that is wrong. Brophy is signed up till 2024 and Lyness I believe has a year left.

    No, I'm a white middle aged man so not diverse enough 😄
  7. My point though is there currently is a massive pre occupation with trying to stop the spread. Have you been to a GP recently? Temp checks, masks, everyone in hazmat suits, last time I was there I thought I was going to be sprayed with disinfectant, all to "stop the spread". Well, it's not working, 1 in 14 had it in Scotland last week. We have flu every year, which also kills, and now in greater numbers than covid, but I don't recall any previous attempts to segregate in hospitals for any other illness.
  8. Perhaps it's time for the medical profession to change how they deal with covid. Currently there are still lots of protocols and preventative measures to stop the spread - separate wards etc - which reduces capacity. This is despite the risk from covid drastically reducing - flu is now more deadly. I currently have covid and it feels like a mild cold - I know lots of people who have had it recently and no-one has been really unwell. Perhaps if we remove protocols given the reduced risk it might help hospitals cope better.

    AGM announced for 21st April. Three places on the current SMISA board up for re-election - those of us who didn't pay much attention when the constitution was drawn up are probably surprised to hear only a third of the board are up for re-election each year. I'd urge anyone who wants change and a more inclusive SMISA to stand for election.
  10. It really is a pish level of service. Feckin amateurs.
  11. Totally agree, but this is the same for all clubs, it's some ridiculous SFA or UEFA rule. I think the only way round it is to use a credit or debit card registered in Scotland.
  12. Unable to go today due to a positive covid test, so just logged in, as a season ticket holder, to watch the game, but the only option is to listen to it! Emailed them 20 minutes ago, still no response. Customer service not improving by the looks of it.
  13. I do like Jim, but it would be hysterically funny if his move "up" led to an unscheduled trip to the play offs.
  14. Going to miss this due to a positive covid test. Oh for the days before self isolation rules. Just hope the stream is working properly, and please please please no cutting away to replays when play is going on.
  15. Not sure about this team, seems like a 5-4-1 is the only way they'll be set up which is very defensive. But worried about this one.
  16. I think you have a point, and a lot of members don't scrutinise much what's going on. Those that attend the meetings do that, which is why I think the AGM is time for change. Those unhappy can put themselves forward or nominate others to stand for election to the Board. While I don't doubt that the current SMISA board went into this with good intentions, I think they are far too comfortable in their positions and have stopped engaging with members.
  17. AGM in April, that would be the time for change.
  18. General summary was - We know we've been shite at communication, and we know this was spoken about at the last meeting, but we'll try and do better, honest. We've had some teething problems, covid covid covid, but now everyone on the board are all friends, Jim and John are even going away for a spa weekend together. Jim Gillespie is now no longer a Rangers fan and a fully fledged buddie, and rumours that Mark McMillan will be wearing a Celtic top under his suit at Parkhead tonight are wide of the mark. We can't talk about loads of things for legal or confidentiality reasons, but nothing bad really happened, honest. The SMISA board are great and making the right decisions.
  19. Win percentage of around 50% in both jobs. His failures in both jobs were down to choking in big games, a bit like us last season. He is probably the best out of work manager out there, despite what Aberdeen fans thought.
  20. I think we need to be realistic though - only a few weeks ago some of our more moronic fan base were calling for him to be sacked. Jim will know that football management is very fickle, if he wants to make a career out of it there may be gambles he needs to take. Really hope he stays but wouldn't blame him if he didn't.
  21. It would be a bit of a gamble for him. Expectations are unreasonably high there, even McInnes was sacked despite keeping them in the top 4 for most of a decade. However he would have a greater chance of winning things with them and raising his profile given the increased budget. Hope he stays, but if not I'd be OK with Ross as his replacement. Hopefully he'll have learnt from his experiences at Sunderland and Hibs and not flirt with anyone who shows any interest in him. It would be like taking back your cheating ex after they've been dumped and hope they've learnt their lesson though.
  22. Another fantastic game yesterday. On the basis of what we've seen so far, he is likely to become a star for us. Get him on a 5 year contract now. I would hope there is some contrition from those who had written him off before seeing him play. He has the potential to be our best signing from relative obscurity since McAvennie.
  23. Doyle Hayes with the mistake, karma! Need to keep focus though, nearly gifted them an equaliser there.
  24. I really the look of Greive. He is playing the role of lone striker very well, a real pest for the Hibs defence. As long as he stays fit I don't think we need to bring in anyone else.
  25. Some of his girlfriends could join the panda club * * allegedly
