    4 told they can leave

    After last night it looks like a crazy decision to let these guys go if their replacements are some of the new guys who were on display. Some Spartans players were better quality. Early days but some looked way out of their depth.

    St. Mirren v Spartans Betfred Cup 17/7/18

    I am not going to comment on particular players but that display and several individual performances should give Stubbs plenty of food for thought. Guys can have off games but still show some quality but there was little quality on show tonight. And the other great disappointment for me was the formation. We played a 4-1-4-1 (contrary to what others reckoned) which meant in particular that Cooke was isolated up front and Smith was out wide and wasted. One striker at home against a non-league team is pretty poor. I know we were lucky last season playing 3 men behind a striker or Smith playing off a striker with 4 in midfield and saw some great attacking football but that now seems to be ancient history. And I will comment on McShane though. I thought he was one of the better players which maybe wasn't saying much. Maybe Stubbs should re-think his apparent policy that all the players from last year should be bumped in favour of inexperienced non-league players. I am not suggesting that McShane is the answer however he was better than everyone who was making a Home debut bar Coulson.
  3. Hodson is only 26 but has 24 full caps and played for NI in European UEFA Football Championship qualifiers. As a full back he may not be classed as exciting but is a huge step up from the normal pedigree than comes to us. If we did sign him I would feel sorry for Paul McGinn as I could see him being the player being replaced. But Hodson would be a great signing if not an exciting one.
  4. Its not often we sign two full Internationals. Hodson has 24 full caps and Stokes has 9. Certainly a step-up from the Summer of Beath.

    The young English guys are probably just pissed off at the slagging they were getting about their national team. I am sure they will all bond now the WC is over.

    St. Mirren v Sunderland, friendly 21/7/18

    We do not have cash turnstiles as such. You buy a ticket from either the ticket office at the main stand or at the North stand (Away support) or a booth at the West stand . Our turnstiles electronically read your ticket for entry. You should be able to buy a ticket ok for the Main or West stands if you want to be at the half-way line.
  7. I dare say there are a few embarrassed posters on this thread tonight as it turns out we were excellent. Coulson and Kpekawa were class however the big surprise for me was McPherson and Kirkpatrick who both looked Premiership players. McPherson in particular had a great first half. Delighted with tonight's showing and the subs all contributed when they came on. Another another special mention to the 830(?) Buds who travelled tonight and made a fantastic noise from start to finish. For those that decided to stay in and watch the telly - you missed a great evening out

    You do what you want to do and I'll do what I want to do. That way we will both be happy.
  9. It's a bawhair closer to me than New Love St and I will be going tonight if nothing else than to get an impression of the new guys. Last season we won the League at a canter with a highly motivated squad all pulling together. That squad has now been decimated and last season's feel good factor has evaporated. Stubbs is either a genius and will surprise us or a clown and destroy us. Or maybe neither and we manage to escape relegation like so many times before. Time will tell.
  10. Chadwick Stand is the Northern Stand.
  11. You can park in streets around the ground ok. They do not usually have a ticket outlet and you just pay at the turnstile. I'll see you there

    I still like to take an interest in players that left us for greater things. It reflects well on our Club and may help entice other young lads to join us.

    Danny Rogers - confirmed

    I was a bit disappointed in an interview this week when Stubbs was asked if he was pleased the way the squad was shaping up. He said he was delighted with the players he had brought in but made no mention to the players already there. A bad move if he alienates existing staff. Maybe it wasn't meant but it did come across as he wasn't impressed.
  15. Welcome Danny to the greatest Club in the World.
