    Sonny reacted to FTOF in Season tickets   
    People have short memories.
    Last season's ticket roll out and strip release was marketed slickly and with a great deal of publicity. That was down to The Kibble's involvement. I'm sure TF or GS mentioned as much in their updates.
    This season for whatever reason, the season ticket company was changed at the last minute. I'm sure that wasn't remotely helpful. However, yet again, it has been proven that the team involved with season tickets is simply too small to deal with glitches. Even though this year's events were probably exacerbated by the fact that season ticket holders had to populate a new data base. That was never going to go well. The club should have been more proactive regarding keeping people who were experiencing problems with season tickets. 
    The strips debacle was not of the club's making. It's quite clear that the strips had been ready to roll out with "Skyview" on them, as evidenced by the "black bin bag" look on the away strips v Linfield and also by the absence of the stripes in any of our games so far. Obviously Joma have had to change their plans. Not much the club could do about this. Although, again, the lack of info from the club on this matter is annoying to some. Also, the club shop, which is another thing in transition, can hardly sell or take pre-orders of strips without Joma providing concrete evidence of strip production, delivery etc.
    There are definitely glaring faults with aspects of the strip/season ticket this season, but not much The Kibble could do about it IMO.

    No evidence to support it but I think Ethan will be away before McGrath.

    3 clubs cannot play fixtures because Covid is still here - it has not gone away. I am just grateful that at least some fans can attend a match. Watch Engerland go into meltdown over the next few months when they lift all restrictions.

    Given our "brush" with Covid last season, you can see to an extent why the club is being OTT.
    The last thing the club needs is to be accused of being lax if some sort of spreading of Covid takes place that can be linked back to us.
    Factor in that there will always be people who publicise breaches of protocol. We don't need fans heading for social media telling all and sundry that there was no social distancing in the bogs etc.. Big brother will be watching.

    Sonny reacted to div in Message from Rosalind Carr   
    Rosalind was in touch with me yesterday and asked if I could post this message to Saints fans, one she wrote back in January of this year. Was supposed to be posted on the club site but for whatever reason that hasn't happened yet so she wanted to get this out to her fellow supporters ahead of the new season.
     
    To Saint Mirren FC, their staff and my fellow supporters. 

    As a lifelong fan and supporter of Saint Mirren FC, I would like to say that it has been an honour and privilege to have served the fans and the club for over thirty years. Serving my fellow supporters was one of the greatest opportunities I have had in my life. There have been some great times and some very challenging times but being in the position to both serve my fellow supporters and being able to watch my team playing on match days I can say that the great times have outweighed the challenging times. 

    Now that I am a grandmother to two adorable boys with a third grandson on the way I have arrived at the view that it is now time for me to be with my family and have therefore decided not to extend the contract. 

    I would like to thank my incredible staff and family who have worked tirelessly both behind the scenes and in the kiosks to serve the fans on match days. Their commitment and energy made an incredible difference when things were tough. I would also like to thank Saint Mirren staff and Board of Directors both past and present for their valued support. 

    I am now looking forward to attending the games as a fan and enjoying your company in the supporters bar and in the stand on match day

     
    Update: 

    Grandson No 3 has arrived and is doing well.

    I might be in the minority, but events of the last year or so have taught me not to take things for granted. i.e. being able to pick and choose when to attend football matches!
    I'm looking forward to the start of the season and getting back into my seat in the ground.

    Maybe people did not make it clear what Stand they wanted? There is an seat A1 in all the Stands. I would guess all the notes about seats already booked are due to folk not making it clear which Stand or else choosing the wrong Stand.
