    I've re-read the 47, yes 47 page document itself and you're right. It's legal physical distancing which is being removed. Silly me thought that masks were a physical distancing restriction.
    Seriously though. 47 bloody pages. On top of a 41 page one for physical distancing itself. No wonder so many simply switch off to these politicians.

    Privileged to watch this guy rise from being a wee bit in the stripes to Scotland stalwart and if not for Robertson, probable Captain.
     
    Top Premiership player and handsome bugger with royalty among his fans.
     
    He truly is living the dream and fair play to the lad... He has worked bloody hard to make it happen!
     
    I remember years ago, Saints v Celtic at home.
     
    Meatball had Scott Brown in his back pocket the whole game.
     
    He went in for one crunching "hard but fair" tackle on Brown... Who turned to the referee pleading for protection!
     
    McGinn just looked at Brown, put his fingers to his bottom lip, and mocked the Celtic skipper with a wibble wibble wibble gesture!
     
    Class.
     
    Used to be on YouTube but damned if I can find it.
     
    I said back then, he was not just a successor to Brown in the Scotland midfield, but would have been an improvement and one to build our midfield around for years to come and a potential Captain.
     
    Celtic fans scoffed and mocked... Bet they wish they had opened the biscuit tin after all!
     
    Proud of McGinn and privileged to have witnessed his development.
     
    What a guy. 󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    Every scottish player is knocking their pan in, we just need that wee extra percent
    to have the guile to put the ball in the net, very proud of my team tonight whatever the score,
    its feckin magic to see scottish players playing for the jersey and the country.

    You are truly clueless.

    Great shift.

    Linked well with Adams.

    Ran the channels well and worked tirelessly.

    Spent and can go.off with head Heald high as only clueless critics won't appreciate his contribution.

    Happy with that.
    Finished the half on the front foot and with increased confidence.

    Sure they had some chances... It's at Wembley... What do you expect?

    We have had chances too and are being brave in posession.

    What more could we honestly expect.

    Meatballs yellow cart is a bit of a worry... Has nullified him a bit.

    No changes at half time... More of the same please.

    Whit?
    No he isn't.
    He's not particularly unfit either. He's lacking match sharpness.
    He's attempting to do what no other singles player has ever done in coming back from having a new hip installed.
    To even be competing at this level and winning the odd game (and a couple of tournaments as well - one singles and one doubles since his op) is extraordinary.
    He said it himself. As long as he's not getting smoked by the top players he'll keep playing.

    A draw against England in their back yard would be an excellent result but I'm still confident we're more than good enough to beat them.

    Not taking it the wrong way at all... Good to have adult debates and discussions on here.

    If in general, ST sales were non seat specific, I'd just turn up early and sit in the general area I've come to prefer, around people I've come to know well.

    There might be the odd occasion I'd have to sit elsewhere... I'd accept that as a concession for a more flexible system that allows growth.

    On a different week, I could bring a friend and be sat next to them, whereas now that is impossible.

    Who knows... One week someone might keep me a seat as they enjoy my witty banter and repartee!

    What I am doing is accepting the reality of the current situation and system and trying to work within it.

    The system is what it is. This isn't the appropriate time for me to be stirring it up... I simply want to support the club and keep my options open moving forward.

    BinEK please don’t take this the wrong way and I may be wrong but I thought you were vociferously against anyone having a designated seat attached to their season ticket……I understand your predicament and have sympathy with it but a wee bit surprised. I hope you can get it sorted 👍

    Suggestion of potential wrongdoing within the club.
    Comparison with Motherwell.
    Complaints about marketing.
    If this isn't Dickson, I'll ditch hesgoal and buy a season ticket right now.

    Not really because I'm not thinking about finishing third.
    I'm thinking about us beating both England and Croatia and then it doesn't matter what other teams do.
    If you want to talk about 3rd place, 4 points would certainly see us through IMO.
    Funnily enough, we could win our last 2 games and still finish 3rd.
    A narrow win for Croatia over the Czech Republic absolutely helps our cause if we want to secure 2nd place.
    Realistically, if we lose tomorrow it's curtains but I don't think we will.

    It is OK. 
    He's fair game given the continuing and enduring harm he's unsuccessfully tried to do to the club down the years, always without base and always without evidence.
    He should be a persona non grata as far as anything to do with St. Mirren is concerned.
