  1. In 2009, we played Motherwell on a Saturday in the league and then 3 days later, in the cup, on a Tuesday night and the attendance differed by 2 people. From memory, Motherwell brought a much larger support to the Tuesday night cup game with even a few having to down colours and sit in the west stand. Most were heading for the exits as the third goal went in.
  2. Trigger "driving the bus" after scoring against Raith to win the league in 2000.
  3. Any match that doesn't involve St.Mirren, Scotland, Largs Thistle and anyone playing England is like watching boys playing fitbaw in the park. Who cares who wins, just enjoy the game. Unless you have a bet on!
  4. Sounds like a no brainier to me and a fantastic opportunity for John at his age. Better standard of life imo and a chance to play in another English speaking country with someone like Owen Coyle there to help set him up. Only way he would be back in Scotland would be homesickness or lack of playing opportunity. Can't see the attraction of Dundee when living in America. I wish him the best of luck and thank him for his part in making a little piece of St. Mirren history.
  5. Sounds like a great opportunity, best of luck to him.
  6. Pretty sure Sutton and Charlie came in on the final day of the transfer window also which is two months away. That was a stroke of genius (luck, for the haters) by Gus and will be difficult to replicate so let's just get two quality players in now! Fast striker and tall defender would be nice. I think Goodwin will be our experienced defender.
  7. The players out of our price range were possibly ex premier players who Mr Murray thought might move down a division, eg. Clarkson and Carey as opposed to first division players who he may have targeted at Dumbarton. That's my initial assumption. I am looking forward to our more experienced players like Thommo, Goodwin and Gow all buying into the philosophy of the new manager and assistant and in turn influencing the young rising stars of the future. We've seen this previously with experienced league winners such as Tommy Turner, Kevin McGowne and Andy Millen for example. If we can get them playing at their best alongside players such as Naismith, Kelly and Mallan then we have a decent foundation for a title winning team.
  8. Suited me too and was looking forward to it but it has been changed on the spfl website and bbc website to 3pm.
  9. Meltdown will only arrive if we dispense of a player/coach with experience in gaining promotion from the English Championship twice, the English first division and the Scottish second division. Mallan recently spoke highly of Teale with him helping to develop in the u20s and then putting him into the first team. I would hate for us to lose such an experienced pro who seems to get on with the young players who must respect what he has done in the game.I would love to see the experience of Murray, Teale and Thommo all driving the club in the same direction. They all have experience of playing at the highest level so know what it takes.
  10. They should also be allowed to take a bottle of water or fizzy juice into the game similar to England. Do they really think they are going to throw it at a player or official? Or is it so you have to buy it once inside at monopolised prices?
  11. I hope the stewards will also be made aware of this. Whilst sitting in W6, I witnessed two young men move from W1 or W2 to W6 for the second half when the stewards came up and inspected their tickets and then told them to go back to their allocated seats. The stadium was half empty. The guys looked like students or tourists and I've never seen them before or since.On a side note, I would love for St.Mirren to consider an iniative like this for fans...........http://www.motherwellfc.co.uk/2014/09/16/new-fir-park-flexi-ticket/ I can't make mid week games which there were 4 of last year not including Friday's or cup ties therefore I don't find it worthwhile to buy a season ticket but would certainly buy a ten game match package.
  12. Great news, didn't realise they met on Sunday. So will he be continuing in his player/coach role? I assume the "coach" part can just be removed anyway, similar to it was with Jim Goodwin, without a contract change. Probably more likely that he will be coach but still registered as a player for emergencies.
  13. Is there a likelihood that if Teale is not offered a coaching role that he would retire from football with immediate effect, rather than sit on the sidelines for a year if he is not fit enough to play?
  14. My reliable source has told me that I wasn't there.
  15. Agree with your comments and that former players who become coaches need to to change with the times but so do fans. A lot of top sports' professionals use Twitter on a much more regular basis. Plus, John McGinn uses a PR agency to tweet for him.........
