  1. We have three midweek games coming up as well as Sat games. Goody has to use the pool of players that he has available. Wouldn't surprise me to see Main start today and save Brophy for Tuesday.
  2. A big welcome to our new striker who may be involved tonight. St Mirren Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Alex Greive from Birkenhead United subject to international clearance. The 22-year-old forward joins the club on an 18-month deal from the New Zealand side with whom we announced a strategic partnership with last year. Alex was a part of the New Zealand Olympic Provisional squad for the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games and scored 25 goals in 33 games in 2021 – including three hat-tricks in a row. His performances last year earned him a place in the ISPS Handa Men’s Premiership Team of the Season as well as being named the regional MVP (Northern League) in the New Zealand National League.
  3. You can write to the Club about ideas/concerns (I have in the past with a decent response) or contact the SLO's who do a great job at representing the support. SMISA wanted far greater influence and were prepared to put in the time, effort and cash to achieve it. Anyone can still join them. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  4. Heard a while back that Wigan were very keen on him so no surprise if he ends up there.
  5. Not according to the Scotsman. Birmingham and Wigan now interested. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  6. Ross Stewart was playing for Kilwinning Rangers 12 months before we signed him. He is turning out ok. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  7. Come on guys, we used the Stewart money 1/3 of the way towards buying Heaton. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  8. Kennedey has been unfit for so long no-one remembers if he had pace. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. Who decides the HoF nominations? Iain Munro and Billy Thomson are far more deserving than Sutton. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. Aye, but Stubbs got £25k for him.
  11. This! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. I have been supportive of Jim however that has lost a lot of faith recently. We started with this one tactic of a long ball to Tanser shite from the start of the season which was horrendous. Then, in Away games, we started pressing and getting our decent midfielders like Ronan and McGrath into play and getting some results. But at home it is the long ball to Tanser like a broken record. The PDE suggested Jim come up with a plan B and he took exception to this and said he wasn't changing his system. Intransigence isn't a good quality. Two questions at this point. 1) last season was our best in decades when we played out from the back - why change it this season? And 2) why do we play a high press Away from home which is successful (more Away points than Home points) and have the midfield more involved, but don't play a high press at home and miss out the midfield? Now with no wins in 12 he is apparently prepared to let McGrath go in exchange for 2 players one of whom is a crock and the other cannot get a game for his club. McGrath is still under contract. Just keep him if no decent bids come in. Change the f**king tactics to use him and Ronan as they should be used. My support of Jim is fading fast and a horrendous transfer window could easily see it evaporate completely. At least Brophy and McCarthy should be fit after the break which is a bonus.
  13. Shankland was transferred for £1M only six months ago and is on a salary St Mirren players could only dream about. No chance we can sign him.
  14. I heard down South. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  15. Unfortunately no for Ronan. I think he had just signed a 3 year deal with Wolves when they loaned him out to us. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  16. When we start back McCarthy should be fit again which is a bonus. It also allows us the possibility of changing to a back 4 with Dunne at left back if Jim ever wakes up to the fact that what he is doing isn't working, (at home games anyway - we are far better on the road), and a Plan B and C may be useful. Personally I think Power plays the 'Goodwin' role so do not see the point in Gogic if money is tight. We certainly need some pace on the right and Henderson could maybe do that with a back 4 behind him but the lad ain't a wing back (not that that has stopped Millar getting a gig). Wouldn't touch Kennedy before the summer until he can prove his fitness. I'd also recall young Lewis Jamieson as surely he cannot be any worse than Main although we probably also need a more experienced forward. If Jim's intransigence continues I'd let McGrath go as we are totally wasting the lad's time and talents. We have a diamond there and are not using him. Such a waste for us and for him.
  17. You could add Away at Motherwell and Hearts to that list. When we play away we play a pressing game and seem to have more of the ball in midfield. At home we just play longball shite and stand off the opposition. Success would be using the squad we have a lot better and keeping Jamie to the end of the season to help push us up the League. I think we are underperforming mainly due to tactics (and a lack of scorers) so changing those tactics would give me more hope for the future. Learn from what's not working.

  18. Surely John McGinn has to be one of them? As much as I liked Peter Weir, Lewis Morgan scores more goals and Frank McAvennie for regularly popping the ball into the net. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  19. I see the official attendance was given as 6535. However that figure must have included all the season ticket holders who didn't show as I have never seen so many empty seats for a home game against Premiership opposition. I took the following snap of the row I sit in only a couple of minutes before kick off. All of these seats are usually full of season ticket holder in the West Stand W3 next to the half way line. 7 guys that I peronally know that sit around me never showed and the actual attendance was nowhere near 6,500.
  20. The defence (all 10 of them) were superbly marshalled by Captain Joe, Fraser and Dunne. Special mention to Lyness who was outstanding. Young boys stuck to their task well and showed great composure. Tanser's booking was utter unbelievable and there was never 5 mins extra time. However we weathered the storm. And out of about 12 of us who regularly attend I was the only one there tonight (not blaming anyone) - but it must be the lowest St Mirren support at a home game for a premiership game in the new stadium.
  21. With the size (First team squad of 32) and cost of their squad of internationalists they will still be favourites and will win. However on Sunday they had 3 youngsters on the bench due to their extensive injury list and they lost Turnbull and Johnson and seemingly want to rest Furuhashi. If we have youngsters who have to play against them, this could be the best time to play Celtic as they could hope for as their squad can be substantially stronger..
  22. Forfeit the game and you lose ticket money, hospitality, catering etc. Play the game and give the young boys a chance to play a weakened Celtic team. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  23. The Scottish government are making a decision this afternoon about further restrictions. The Welsh government have aleady declared no fans to attend matches after Boxing Day. Probably any decision today will involve some notice though. We wait and see. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  24. Don't think it will either. Reckon attendance will be suspended until after the Jan break.
  25. Apparently only 10 first team squad available which includes 3 keepers. 4 loanees being drafted back. Looks like our Under21 squad v Celtic. Maybe our only hope, for now, is if Nicola suspends the League.
