  1. Very impressed by livi. It’s probably just what we need to keep us hungry. United were pish, let’s hope their pishness continues next week.
  2. I remember that semi final only too well. Me and my mates stood on the terracing long after the final whistle in utter disbelief that we had lost the game as we were so on top.The other mobs fans started pelting us with missiles which was commonplace when they looked like getting pumped.Then of course the ludicrous “goal” absolutely heartbreaking at the time. We certainly had the semi final misery a few times. It’s worse than losing a final
  3. I expect that the gap will close but hopefully not enough to catch us. The concept of closing a large points gap is interesting as the pressure is off the chasers to an extent which perhaps would explain livis high scoring antics yesterday. Last season everyone thought we were doomed so we could play as the underdog for most of the run in and just get stuck in with nothing to lose . This season we are being chased and while it’s great to be top with such a big gap we might play better if the gap was a bit less. Don’t get me wrong I would love to be 20 points clear with 3 games to play but I expect us to wobble at times. Let’s hope we handle the next few weeks . What a season! I might even get time off for a game. COYS!
  4. We will need to rely on home form on a decent surface to win this league. This is the time of year when it gets very physical indeed and pitches away from home won’t be conducive to our style
  5. Looks like you’re only allowed to score if your name is Ryan
  6. I’m equally worried about players getting injured as I am about the result. Livingston already have reputation for being a big physical side and I suspect Hopkins will try and put us off our style by telling his team to get in about us. That along with the state of the pitch means that we will do well to get through this unscathed both in points and in personnel.
  7. I’m hoping this signing is more strengthening of the squad rather looking to fit him into the team. We now have a consistent, winning first eleven give or take the odd tweak when needed. If his record of inconsistency is true then perhaps he is viewed as an impact sub when we are ahead in games to give the opposition defence more to think about. Teams will know us well now and he might just be what we need to spring a surprise so that we don’t become predictable and therefore easier to play against.
  8. Big Turkish bloke at Plymouth on his way out. Can’t spell his name but could we afford him?
  9. Morgan for all his talent needs to appreciate it’s a team game. If he was a bit more unselfish we could have been out of sight. We totally surrendered the midfield in the second half. Thought we lost something when Mullen went off as he gives us a bit of dig. A point away in a derby is in itself not a bad result but if we had maintained our first half showing we would have won comfortably
  10. We look like we have no belief in ourselves, very timid indeed. United defence looks a bit nervy, so a bit more purpose going forward might get us something. Hate to say that United look like a better football team than us . Thank god their finishing has been poor so far. Great penalty save but prior to that Samson was too slow to command his box. Come on ye saints!!!!
  11. Highlights show that we put a number of useful crosses into the box but no one gambling to get on the end of any of them. Definite red card in the modern game, Stelios led with the arm and had to go. To say it had no bearing on the outcome is a useless argument, the fact is he made a difficult game even harder. jack shows great maturity when giving his analysis. He is articulate and intelligent in his appraisal, demonstrating a shared responsibility but leads by example and never shirks from the facts. What a guy. Roll on next week for what will be another difficult game.
  12. Whether it’s seen as petty or not, this is most certainly an unwelcome distraction from our drive to win this division. success is built on cohesion in all parts of a club. It’s no accident that successful managers and players mention the importance of having the supporters totally behind them, which we have had from the day that Jack took over. To divide support at this crucial time would be a shame after the hard work that’s gone into getting everyone behind the team and their support being acknowledged by the club. The SLO could have initiated a meeting with a representation from the group responsible and gave them the opportunity to make amends hence maintaining the inclusivity which up until now has been a joy to watch as it grows into a passionate force helping us to win games.
  13. Great result with a makeshift defence. With a bit more conviction we could have been out of sight before we decided to play too deep and surrender territory, thus allowing them to take the initiative. Never felt comfortable in the second half. Strange feeling having some misgivings after a 3-1 win. I guess that's how far we have come. When we start passing and anticipating the second ball we are very good indeed. Defensively we need a bit more time to gel. We have the look of a team with a lot more to come. I love my team. Oh, and lastly my 12 year old who is Man Utd mad absolutely loves Stelios! Don't we all.
  14. Having watched the highlights a few times I feel the criticism of Samson is a bit harsh. He seems to have been caught out by the crossy shoty chippy thingy by Loy and as a result his feet aren't quite right resulting in him palming/ flapping at the ball. Give him a break.
  15. For us to win our first game of the season is unusual and not the st mirren way at all . Be off with you Jack Ross, who do you think you are coming in here and creating a winning team. It will never catch on
  16. Stelois's fotos are like a question of sport. Is it Tony Jacklin?
  17. I know we were pish but it's the first time I've seen the strip and that is never a st mirren strip in a million years. That's what's to blame for our poor performance in my tiny little superstitious mind.
  18. I'm supposed to be a grown man but jeez I was nearly greetin' at the end of that. What a turnaround at our wonderful club
  19. It's been a long time since I have been so nervous ahead of a game. If we manage to survive this will rank as one of the greatest achievements this club has seen. What a shame it would be if we just fell short given the miraculous turnaround and the togetherness between team and supporters. I'm still trying to wangle a flight even although I'm working Sunday! We have now got two cup finals and we certainly have the players who can handle the big games. Come on the buddies we can do it!
  20. As Raith have Hughes at the helm I would expect them to be well equipped for games such as the nature of the ones coming up. I just hope that Jack will have the boys well prepared for what could be a shitfest if Raith get a result against hibs.
