  1. Would love to see our beloved Buddies come to Jersey. Fair number of buds here would make it a great occasion. If any of the players were stuck for somewhere to stay I have a spare room. As long as they could put up with me regaling of great teams of the past and droning on endlessly of unforgettable games. God knows I’ve bored my loved ones senseless over the years. God I still miss going to games.
  2. Going to the Dons and we’ve agreed not to play him? Shoot me down now!
  3. Robinson showed on Saturday that he has a willingness to change formation and personnel and it worked. Credit to him for that. Goodwin was very stubborn in that sense. Like many others I have been very critical of his style and the content of his interviews but I haven’t got a clue whether or not he is a good coach or what his man management skills are like. Anyone who can make Main play like he did on Saturday must have something about him.
  4. Huge, huge result and Robinson appears to have got his tactics spot on. Crucially the players busting a gut and showing bottle. With safety( almost ) assured will we see a more relaxed saints and some of the youngsters given a chance? Hats off to the new(ish) boss. It only takes one game to change everything and today might just have been it. Marching In!
  5. Robinson mentioned the “difficult pitch” in his interview yesterday, so he’s getting his excuses in early. Also, someone in the coaching staff must have the bottle to tell him the truth about Main as Robinson has a Putin like single bloody mindedness regarding his involvement in the squad let alone in the team. He was also bumping his gums about bringing youth through and giving them the chance in the 1st team. No evidence of that yesterday. Give some of them a go next week. Can’t be any worse than the imposters he is putting on the pitch.
  6. Robinson stating that he has only 14 fit and available players. He seems to be missing the fact that his selection and team shape and player management are possibly contributing to our pishness.
  7. I’m no boo boy but this manager clearly has no clue. Hibs had the courage to bag Maloney. I very much doubt we will do likewise with Robinson. no team has the divine right to win a game but he seems to have sucked any belief and work ethic we had right out of the club. the appointment of lasley will make it harder to get rid of Robinson.
  8. Huge game, points so badly needed and Main on from the start. f**k me
  9. Thanks! Nearly spat my porridge out reading that.
  10. Don’t be scared, the last time I hit someone they were off school all afternoon.
  11. I think we can clearly see the players who have been told they can go. Every last f**king one of them hopefully! And take Robinson with them. I’m not annoyed, honest.
  12. I don’t remember a St Mirren side with such lack of heart or pride and I’m a right auld duffer whose seen some poor sides. Where has our identity gone? And Jones falls flat on his face from a promising position as we speak which epitomises everything about us.
  13. Shaugnessy and Dunne what a combination . Not a clue between them utter utter pish
  14. I’m really really sick of this shite.
  15. Can lyness only kick to the right wing?
  16. Power learns nothing, total liability
  17. Wasn’t going to watch this but as the game edges closer my “ St Mirrenness” has started to kick in along with my insanely groundless optimism so watch it I will with my lucky( hmmm) scarf on. I just hope we don’t try and shitfest a draw as I don’t think we are clever enough at the back. Robinson will probably go for damage limitation to goal difference and we will likely pay the price. Go out and get stuck in. The league is gone for them . Maybe, just maybe it’s not a bad time to be playing them. Marching In.
  18. Thinking more about the content of Robinson’s interviews: Surely someone within the club must also see his clumsy handling of interviews? I’m assuming they meet on a Monday and discuss the weekend’s result. It can’t be hard for someone to say “Listen here Stevie boy, your need some media training because your choice of words is pish. Stop throwing your players, YOUR players under a bus”. Criticism is for private moments. Is he too thick to realise that confidence is everything?. He has as good as said he has no confidence in most of the players. How then does he expect them to react on the pitch? An employee in any profession functions better when they know that their boss believes in them. it doesn’t matter if they are footballers or window cleaners, if you hear that your boss thinks you’re a diddy there is no way you will give 100%.
  19. Compare our Manager and his obvious disconnect with his players against our friends from Greenock who fought for every ball against Kilmarnock. Driven on by their manager on the sidelines. Granted the quality wasn’t top notch however their team spirit and togetherness meant that they could and should have beaten arguably the league’s best team. Blood and guts are exactly what’s needed at this stage of the season. Hate to say it but I would have loved to see that in our team. It’s sadly missing and that could be our undoing.
  20. Hate to say it but if relegation got rid of Robinson then…………
  21. To go from prospective top 6 candidates to a possible play off place with the same squad is nothing short of criminal. We have no fight, no heart and no organisation. Players need good guidance and strong, constructive leadership. All clearly lacking. Give Robinson his jotters and let anybody, just anybody lead the team for the last part of the season.
  22. Robinson, with his poor public remarks about the quality of the squad has turned us into a team of nervous wrecks. Even Lyness, who up until today was getting rave reviews, has joined in with the jitters that are evident throughout the team
  23. Writing this on anger but again can’t hold a lead. Like others I have big reservations about Robinson and his less than inspiring interviews. Obviously our hand was forced to replace Goodwin quickly but Robinson seems to have tipped over the ship which wasn’t very steady to begin with
