  1. Can't believe you are joining the forum troll in coming out with this tripe. The team JR took over, despite the undoubted talent, was headed for League 1 with Alex Rae. They couldn't string two passes together with Rae in charge and had utter dross like Carswell and Hutton disgracing the stripes. You are talking about Shankland, McAllister and Morgan as if it were the 2019 versions playing back then. It was Jack Ross's coaching and tactics that helped Lewis Morgan and Cammy Smith develop in to the most dangerous players in the league that season. Jack Ross was a great manager for us who moved on to a much bigger job that anyone in his position would have taken. Don't be so bitter and be thankful for what he did!
  2. I don't think Scottish clubs generally move the goalie coach out the door when there is a change of manager, do they? Don't think Sammy or Potter will be guaranteed a place wherever JR goes next.
  3. Going through and avoiding the All Blacks would be quite a turnaround from how things looked post-Ireland game!
  4. Looking forward to the Japan game now. Hopefully the real Scotland team show up, and not the imposters that played Ireland. I think we can do it.
  5. Shame it didn't work out for Jack at Sunderland. Not an easy gig though given it has been a basket case of a club for many years. And a support not grounded in reality. Not sure he would get the Hearts or Hibs gig. Maybe Dundee United once Neilson is punted out the door.
  6. Jackson is a very good player. Not appreciated by some of the support, but a clever player who clearly carried out his instructions from the manager and gave defences something to worry about. Not the best finisher in the world but miles ahead of the current front men, Mullen aside. btw, I logged on expecting to see quite a lively debate on here about this. Amazing how dead the forum is now.
  7. The nonsense is coming from you IOBS. Do you honestly think JG even knew who Morias and Obika were before taking the St Mirren job? Do you think he came in thinking those two League 2 cast offs are what we need to be successful? We were left desperately trying to bring players in after the season had started, and we signed the best that was on our radar. He absolutely did not "make clear who he wanted on Buddie Vision" before signing Durmus, Junior and Obika This is complete IOBS fantasy land stuff as usual. Where you are correct is he stated we need to expand our scouting in Ireland and England. Lets hope he is the man to organise this properly, because Gordon Scott and Gus MacPherson clearly haven't done it.
  8. Care to elaborate? Who is doing Livingston's scouting? They seem to consistently manage to find players that fit in to a system they are good at. Taken them from League 1 to beating the Champions in the Premier League. The only constant with the strikers we sign is they cannae shoot. Jim Goodwin has been badly let down by Gordon Scott's shambolic handling of Oran Kearney and an inept recruitment system.
  9. Thanks for filling in some gaps in my memory. I did recall some change in rules for relegation to be suspended. Classic Fitzy quote there. Must be frustrating for him to see the relative success his Saints team had when was playing never repeated again. Certainly a better player than manager.
  10. Tactics certainly part of it as we had obviously poor managers but you would think if, for example, David Silva came up to play for us next season he would bring enough to make sure we at least avoid relegation!
  11. I saw it put forward on the other thread that Victor is the greatest player to ever play for St Mirren, although he didn't play particularly well for us. How did St Mirren manage to be so bad between 1990 and 1992? We finished bottom in 90/91 and 2nd bottom and were relegated in 91/92. During this time we had Victor, Steve Archibald, Stickroth, Torfarson, Roy Aitken and a young Paul Lambert in the team. I can recall us going on something like a 10 game run without a goal. A run we seem determined to challenge this season. However that team wasn't made up of Northampton Town cast offs, we were signing players from FC Barcelona! How exactly did we end up being so bad with so much quality in the team?
  12. We are lacking quality, the ability to pick out a pass and open up defences. Stephen McGinn is sitting on the bench. Time for a change, Jim!

    Why is this Daily Mail brained gormless bigot still disgracing our St Mirren supporters forum? Utter embarrassment that he has even this tiny association with our club and support.
  14. Add an "Ask the Manager" thread on social media post match. Read out the fans questions - would be considerably more entertaining, although may result in Jimbo getting battered.
  15. Standard template for post match interviews; Jimbo: What do you think of that Gaffer? Manager: Answers the question Jimbo: Asks a question about the exact point the manager just made. Manager: Looks surprised at being asked about a point he thought he just made. Repeats answer, adds in another topic. Jimbo: Asks a question about the exact point the manager just made.

  16. No Kyle McAllister in the squad. Anyone know why?
  17. Rather OTT reporting considering the Director is quoted as saying they have no debt
  18. It also has us down as being about to pay 15m for Ronaldinho Either its very poorly edited or the writer genuinely believes we were able to do so. Bizzare someone would research and write on a subject they know nothing about.
  19. What role he isn't suited for? Striker? I think we need to be more cautious in recruiting from League 2 in England. They may get paid well down there but Sam Foley aside the quality doesn't seem to be far removed from the V9 Academy!
  20. There is at least a base to build on with no goals conceded from open play in four home games. However if we can't score goals against our relegation rivals like Hamilton and Hearts at home then we will be relegated! Hopeful it will pick up, but it is certainly high stakes.
  21. If the budget is gone then we need to look at how we could change things up with the current squad. Starting Danny Mullen in place of Andreu and working out how to get the best out of Kyle McAllister are the only options I see. We know these guys can score goals when on form. Goodwin will need to show some tactical flexibility. His system relies on the full backs getting good crosses in to the box. We are as well just giving the ball back to the opposition rather than relying on Calum Waters to cross the ball. We then we need to hope we can turn Junior and Obika in to Premier League strikers. Maybe send an SOS to Allan Russell to come up, or send someone up, to do some attacking coaching for a couple of weeks. Just something different to shake things up and maybe get some confidence back in front of goals for the strikers and attacking midfielders who to a man have been utter rank when presented with a decent chance. All that said, budgets and squads are always flexible. I would hope we are hunting high and low for someone to add something different in the final third.
