  1. Just completed my form. Sounds like between a rock and a hard place in terms of the finances. Understand fans frustration in giving up a stand to the old firm but I honestly believe that we would struggle to fill the family stand from previous experience of the old firm games. The hostility felt by fans often runs to just plain refusing to attend these games anyway. So do we bite the bullet and accept a lower budget for the squad..... Asking non ST holders to pay more for these games I don't believe will make up the shortfall and more likely discourage attendance. Paying the extra £30 on your season ticket may be acceptable for some but not a long term solution in encouraging ST uptake either.
  2. Would love to see him back in a saints strip again. Don't think he'll be short of interest from other clubs though.
  3. Why all the speculation about Mallan? Is he not only half way through his 2 year deal?
  4. Used to look forward to my macaroon bar on a Saturday. Always the guy standing just short of the corner of Love St and Albion Street. Then onwards for my auld man to give me a lifty over the turnstile. Ahhh the good old days 🤣
  5. Think Flynn deserves more game time. Thought he was the player that turned the game against Motherwell last week. Shit game and we did not deserve the win in the end but anything +ve in the 2nd half happened when he came on.
  6. I was at this game. Took me 3 days to get my voice back. This was not a great Celtic team though. They struggled all season as I recall and finished abt 5th. Think we were in a fight with Ayr Utd to stay up our in our 1st season after promotion.
  7. Just been trying to find the info on tickets on official site but still nowt. Seen Ayrshire Saints post but surely there would be info on the site by now?
  8. Sooo many to choose from that purple period in the late 70's and 80's. Personally Iain Munro was always a consistent stand out player for us and earned too few Scotland caps. It's also been far to long since we had a proper goal scorer like Doug Somner.
  9. Prefer strip 2. It's a bit more subtle. Granted I'm pretty sure 1 and 3 might give us an advantage on the park with teams falling about laughing at it.......
  10. Pretty disappointed with the performance today. As bad a midfield performance I've seen in a long time. Even McGrath was not firing on all cylinders. The strikers for some reason bore the brunt of the midfields lack lustre performance with Main and Brophy getting hooked for Dennis and Erwin. Pointless when the issue was in midfield. Why Jim never at least took Erhahon off for McPherson I'll never know. Particularly when Erhahon got his 1st booking. I'm not one of the screaming boo boys Erhahon haters that slag him off every week on this site but he definitely had a stinker today. There has been signs of a decent player over the last year and I hope he gets back on track. Today though he looked sluggish and his passing was poor but then tbh nobody in midfield looked up for it today. We were lucky to get 0 - 0 today.
  11. I think most people will still be wary of Covid 19 even attending a game with 1039 supporters. If not they should be. 2 vaccines still does not confer full immunity to everyone but thankfully has made a difference to morbidity and mortality. However as a father of an otherwise healthy 27 year old daughter who contracted Covid recently, despite 2 vaccines and 3 weeks later is still not physically back to her previous level of fitness, I'm not upset by the caution being shown. The point has been made that the longer we give the rest of the younger population to take the vaccination the better before opening up fully.
  12. Unfortunately the SLC has become a pre season warm up campaign as far as I'm concerned for a lot of clubs. Step up in quality next week will be a truer reflection.
  13. Season starts proper next week. I'd get all this negativity about our performance if we'd drawn or lost any of our cup games but 3 wins out of 3 playing not at our best is a habit I can live with. COYS
  14. Only player I had concerns abt last night was Brophy. Rarely involved. Seemed to be a yard off the pace. Perhaps he was not getting the amount of service Main had but Main worked hard to find openings and space. Well impressed with Tanser and Kiltie had a solid game. Powers looked a different player to the one I watched for Killie last year where I thought he laboured. Dunne looked excellent in 1st half. Thought he tired a bit in 2nd half but no feck ups. What impressed me most abt the performance last night was the amount of midfield possession we won from Dunfermline when they were in possession. Closed them down very quickly. Looks a decent squad this year. However it was only the 1st competitive game of the season and I refuse to be buoyed by 1 decent performance 🤣
  15. A friend of mine recently acquired one of these I assume from the same source. Look lovely and there is even a faint whiff of alcohol from the barrels. Looks great in the garden. Almost seems a shame to rest any drinks on that beautiful badge 🤣
  16. "The club is also pleased to confirm that it has been granted a UEFA Licence Award. This follows a decision made by the Appellate Tribunal. The support of the Scottish FA licensing board, partner agencies and the hard work of our staff group have brought this to fruition." From the same announcement
  17. It was a long time ago and memory shot now 😆. £15 k was a lot of money back then. Cheers for the info 👍
  18. Recall Walter from his time at Saints. Decent player for Saints and sad to hear of his passing. The mention of his passing though brought back memories of another of my Saints favourites from that era. Bobby Third? My brain cells are failing these days but seem to recall he was a bit of a super sub for us in that squad. RIP Walter
  19. Am I right in thinking 43 points is the highest points tally we've had in this format of the Scottish Premiership?
  20. Fir Park had one uncovered end that day and guess which end we had..... I was soaked through as well and to top it all we were travelling in a coach without any heating as it had packed in. Not many other games where I've been quite as miserable 🤣
  21. Lets hope we're not living in the "Twilight Zone" with that thought. "In the end" we can but "Hope" for the 3 points and pray we are "in the mood" today. "In the end " it's been a decent season.......... I'll get my coat. COYS
  22. Agree he certainly was not as positive going forward but I think an element of that is probably Goodwins game plan for last night as well.
  23. Thought he was our best midfielder. Erahon had a steady game as well. Any creativity was coming from Doyle-Hayes though.
  24. Honestly? Practically the majority of your posts in recent times. But I'm not wanting to yank the strings of your fragile relationship with St Mirren Football Club. I hope you find a way back to supporting the club your daily life revolves around. Good luck.
