    flyingscot got a reaction from ALBIONSAINT in Virtual Season Tickets   
    I don't think the forgotten password link works. I couldn't get logged in with my ST number or my changed password. Didn't get an e-mail about password so I e-mailed them and they fixed it within an hour and gave me a new password.
    I know there is a huge number of different devices so probably not unexpected there would be some issues but surprised that many got the full 90 with sound issues yet some people couldn't log on at all.

    I thought the picture quality was pretty decent for me, not much worse than other streams I get. Occasionally dropped to low res but usually came back within 10s. 
    The sound was dreadful first half, but to be fair that didn't really matter too much and was much better second half. Overall was pretty decent from my viewpoint. 
    Wonder why it was fine for some whilst others seem to have struggled- pity they didn't get a game to check before hand but no doubt just teething trouble.

    flyingscot got a reaction from ALBIONSAINT in St Mirren v Edinburgh City   
    I thought the first half was pretty poor. We were very pedestrian in going forwards., jogging about with the 'pre-season friendly attitude' and failed to attack them. The lack of width with CMs everywhere didn't help us out, but too often players decided to pass backwards instead of taking responsibility and committing a man or playing a difficult ball.
    Lost count of times we played it across the back 4 then went to midfield before going back across the back 4 which Edinburgh were delighted with. Cooke up top on his own was a honking call too, most of the time he got the ball, if he didn't take a poor touch he was isolated with nobody but City players near him and it let City have more time on the ball when they did get it as we weren't immediately on them. 
    The changes to go 2 up top helped second half and we showed a bit more then and had a few more chances- it seemed a little bit better, but still below par. 
    It's clear we're massively short of players with quality. McAllister, Popescu, Dryer, Musek even Nazon would have added to that team positively last night.

    flyingscot got a reaction from Lord Pityme in Dundee v St, Mirren, Sat 18th May 12:30pm   
    Felt we were pretty rubbish today all in all. Wrong lineup to start with, we are crying out for someone who can win a high ball so lord alone knows why Cooke didn't start- every high ball was meat and drink to the Dundee defence. 
    Quite glad they went down to 10 and have a bombscare in goals without that I think it would have been a real struggle. We'll have to be much better against United.

    Jones might not be the answer, but I'd have preferred a straight swap than bringing on MacPherson and shifting McGinn which didn't seem to work that well.
    I'd give MacPherson a try on the right mid before Edwards though as he seems decent enough going forward.

    No. Gus was binned because of negative football and aiming for 11th place, whilst teams around us like St Johnstone and Hamilton came up and finished higher! He also seemed to love defensive centre mids!

    Stubbs was right not to come over. He would have got a mouthful of abuse given fans were booing the team and him off. McGinn has more of a connection with the fans and they are far less likely to give him the same issues as a player. 
    Hippolyte a Morgan replacement? I suspect Jack was regretting that one with his performances last season, never a Premiership player! 
    How do we know Robbie Neilson, a man who failed at MK Dons and was talking down budgets and the club on radio after Jack left, would be the man?

    It's difficult to go from a successful manager with a connection with the fans, who has achievements at the club behind him to fall back on in the event of a poor run, to a new man in the job with no connection to the club, no previous good record at the club to reassure fans, and a different type of personality, not to charismatic but a little spiky it would seem.
    This should have no bearing on the fans' support for the manager while at the club, but for some the fact he didn't stand on the touchline and bawl at players is seen as a fault, never mind the team playing poorly.
    It's early days, we're still in preseason for me, and although the real stuff starts in ten days time, fans want results now. The League Cup group stages are a good idea, but terrible planned - puts too much pressure on teams who have to start their season earlier, and without proper preparation in many instances.

    He'd have been better than the imposters we have upfront. How anyone can watch the players we played up top today and criticize Mehmet I don't know! His effort, determination and ability to hold up would be an asset to the team. Still we know it won't happen.

    flyingscot got a reaction from faraway saint in How many seats do the bigots get ?   
    Totally agree with this. Need to keep the west for home, but did we not try the 1600 tickets for the OF before, only to have a poor attendance and some aways going in the home end?
    I can't see us having a nearly full home attendance either sadly. People will turn out to see us win things, like they did when Love Street was packed under Gus in D1, but many people drift away over a full season for various reasons. The OF games will be on TV too.

    Ok here goes, hard hat on for all the flack heading my way. There is no chance of us selling 5000 season tickets or getting that as home crowd against bigots unfortunately. I would grab the money from them to give us best chance to compete for top 6 place. I would keep West and Main stand for us. I would give them both stands behind goals, sell ST’s for family stand either to include bigot games on the understanding Buds are moved to West/Main stand (their choice which stand) and sell cheaper ST for family stand to exclude those games as historically the family stand is quieter on bigot games as folks don’t want kids to attend.
    I would keep the bigots in for 10/15 minutes after the game to let the good people time to get on our way.
    I would love to be proved wrong with our attendances but the last two promotions we went back to our normal home crowd levels in the top flight. I genuinely think we will do better with JR & JF and crowds will be up but not to the extent people are saying.
    Would love to be proved wrong but can’t see it.

    I sort of see us as in between the first 2. I don't see us yo-yoing that frequently but have a good run in the top flight but some year we'll go down and have to rebuild. Will happen to everyone, with a 12 team league and 2 possible slots to go down, there is always a chance you can go out of it. Take Hibs recently and Dundee United too. . I don't think there are many clubs that you could say are comfortably established and don't worry about relegation- Motherwell and Killie have both been in the top flight for years but have dodged the bullet on numerous occasions. 
    That aside- on the OF issue, I'd be tempted to do what Killie do - give them the 2 ends and take the cash. Not sure there is ever a family atmosphere on those days so could be missed out of the south ST or transfers to main. I'll admit, probably not a popular opinion, but if it gives us an extra £40k, I can understand why that's difficult to turn down when our fans don't pack the place out.
