    Smashing interview.
    Thanks for sharing.

    “The club seems calmer under Jim. His goal I think was to give the club stability and in time you can transform the changing room.

    The two managers previous had short-term stints, especially Oran. His only goal was to keep us in the league.

    Jim Goodwin is looking at the longevity of players who will play under him for a longer time. I’ll keep looking for St Mirren results as they deserve to stay in that league."

    I don't think it's ludicrous at  all. The bottom 6 was great , 3 teams battling to stay up and 3 playing for more money re the placings. Every game mattered !

    Looking at the table above, the percentages: last season 23% wins and 50% loss This season 30% wins and 39% loss. I would say that is a good improvement

    I don't see anyone glorifying the cup semi finals, but I do see you dismissing them, you really must have a weird sense of attainment, so am i correct in thinking that 'in your opinion' 
    1;  there is no point in playing in a league........unless you win
    2;  no point in entering a cup either.............. unless you win it
    3;  why bother starting a game .............unless you are sure you can win
    4; not much point in even getting out of bed in the morning is there?  ....... when you simply need to get back in later in the day.
    5; come to think of it when you were born............... you should of tuned round and crawled back in

    I can’t really go on anything other than what you’ve posted on here....there are some fans who have never seen us finish higher than this season‘s efforts, that’s a fact. We didn’t finish 9th so anything else is irrelevant.
    I have followed St Mirren for 50 years and the only season I remember being in the semi-finals of the two relevant domestic cups was in the early 80’s (statto’s please prove me wrong) which was the springboard for European campaigns and our Scottish Cup win in 87.
    You may think that your expectations hold some sort of gravitas but this has certainly been a better than average season....did I hope for more, well yes. Will I criticise what we’ve got based on the last 30 years or so, not a chance....some people have glasses that are half full and others criticise, c’est la vie 🏁🏁

    Why miss out on the fact that only one team wins the league, by your measure any season without a trophy is a failure which is totally unrealistic. You’re constant “most fans”, “everyone” type comments seem to suggest the majority are with you, the opposite from what I have read is the actuality. I guess we’d all love to see us win things but let’s not dismiss progress as a non-achievement….that would suck the breath out of life 🏁🏁🏁🏁 onwards and upwards COYS

    Unbelievable negativity towards the club from its own supporters

    Many on here regularly slate the team before a ball is kicked, while we play and after regardless of if we we win/lose/draw

    A lot of ‘what ifs’ and ‘if only’ talk but the bottom line is simple.

    2 cup semi finals is still successful

    7th is still successful

    Alnwick had 13 clean sheets ?

    The academy is continuing to produce players for the future

    We were ravaged by covid , made to play against Celtic/Hibs without our keeper

    Beat Sevco and Celtic in quick succession

    Ach you’re right, pish season......

    Sorry Baz, your lack of self-awareness is staggering....and that’s coming from someone who refuses to engage in your “ever decreasing circles” dialogue.
    Like all of us “occasionally” you have something worthwhile to say, unfortunately you seem to believe that the only worthwhile viewpoint is yours. You then double down on “victim” status  and perceive yourself to be on the wrong side of some campaign against you. For once just try looking inward instead of blaming everyone else.

    Why would she have rusty knitting needles? Has she been knitting chainmail for your Agincourt reenactments?

    Not bad at all for an end of season match.
    Looks like we saw the end of Jake on Wednesday then.
    Brophy and Erwin playing well. Brophy especially and could have had two goals although the second one it looked like he had a player right in front of him for the shot. Great lead up play to it though.
    12 o'clock on a Sunday though. That's a terrible time for a football match.

    I can selectively quote too. That expert also said this:-
    Dr Gurdasani said it is too early to say whether it will lead to an increase in hospital admissions.
    She said: “Given there’s always a lag between when infections rise and hospitalisations rise, I would have expected to see a rise in hospitalisations at this point in time so it’s hard to make inferences from that.
    “If you look at cases in older age groups they’re quite flat at this point in time, so we’re not really seeing infections in those groups and that might be a vaccine effect.”
