    pozbaird got a reaction from faraway saint in Season Tickets   
    Don’t get me wrong, the ticket office staff member wasn’t being cheeky with their responses, just matter of fact that it had ‘been sorted’. We just agreed to disagree on that, and moved onto getting my ST put through.

    I renewed mine in person at the ticket office, weeks ago, after multiple efforts to do it online failed. I received the ‘no memberships to renew’ message, a few times, and it simply would not work. The user interface remains unweildy, counter-intuative, and clumsy to even try to navigate.
    As I was going to Braehead from Cumbernauld anyway, thought I would carry on to the stadium first and get it sorted by a human being. The conversation was an interesting one. Kind of went like this...
    Me: ‘Hi there, want to renew my season ticket please, been having a bit of trouble doing it online’.
    Office: ‘No problem, but there shouldn’t be online issues, it’s been sorted’.
    Me: ‘Definitely still problems, I tried many times, including this morning before heading here from Cumbernauld. Maybe it works for those using Windows? All my stuff is Apple’.
    Office: ‘No, it definitely works with Apple too’
    (Me - to myself in my head: ‘No it fcuking doesn’t’)
    Me, out loud again: ‘Well, I tried it on an iPhone, iPad, a desktop iMac. I tried Safari, Firefox.... nothing. Same as last season. I have encountered nothing but trouble using Interstadia’s online ticketing system’.
    Office: ‘Oh well’.
    .... transaction then concluded and I went to Braehead for a cappucino and a lemon muffin fae’ Costa. There clearly is a problem, and if anyone suggests contacting the club, rather than moan on a forum, I did that. Last season when I faced the exact same nonsense. An e-mail to the chairman, which he passed on to Interstadia. So, twelve months later, I thought it might work. It didn’t. I guess most of us who post on forums are ‘die hard’ types to one degree or another. Wonder how many prospective ‘customers’ who go online simply give up with that pish after two minutes.

    I spoke to the lady about my problem with the ticket system, very nice and helpful lady by the way, she said that was interstadia nothing to do with her and couldn't refer me to anyone at the club - maybe David is the one dealing with that.
    I was getting fed up - 3 days trying to renew - should have been a straightforward transaction, completed in minutes.

    So, after the efforts to get our stripes back on the backs of our kits, we’ve given up the ghost. BBC Old Firm-apologist commentator fcukers who couldn’t recognise a St Mirren player if they bumped into one will be happy.
    Can neither Gordon Scott or Tony Fitzpatrick look at what Joma offered up and said immediately ‘if we have a black sponsor rectangle with two black stripes, then it just looks like a cheap Leeds United kit with a big fcuking black ‘H’ slapped on the front’.... can we try the sponsor logo in another way?
    ... and we never want to mention the ‘H’ word again anyway.

    If ‘Old Firm’ colt sides are admitted to the Scottish football senior league system, and they are the only two colt sides to appear in it, then I’m finished with Scottish football, and despite my long love affair with St Mirren, I want no part of what would frankly be a sickening development in our top level national game.
    The entire country may as well just switch the lights off before taking it up the arse from Lawell and King.
    Pains me to say it, but just my personal view, I would simply be finished with Scottish senior football, and after a while, I’d just become another ‘lapsed’ St Mirren fan.

    ...now they are Mercury Music Prize winners and all over the mainstream media today. Next stop The Hydro, as predicted by yours truly back in 2016 (amongst many others to be fair). I heard their first single in passing when someone in the  ‘Soccer AM’ studio used it to soundtrack a goals clip. I instantly looked up from my cuppa’ thinking ‘who are they, that’s brilliant...’ I texted my mate who likes the same sort of music as me, he’d never heard of them. As I posted on here back at the time - we immediately checked them out, bought their first EPs, saw them in a three-quarters full King Tuts, and we knew, instantly, that these four kids were going to be massive.
    It’s the second time in my life this has happened. Sometime around 1979/80, I was in ‘Listen’ across from the Paisley museum, and the young bloke working in the shop suddenly put on a record that made me stop in my tracks and, like Wolf Alice, just go ‘wow who are they’.... it was U2, and the guy in Listen was a young Irish bloke working there for a bit. He told me these young kids were a new Dublin band and he knew one of them. This was one of their very first Irish release singles and he brought it over with him. Like Wolf Alice, I tried to find out who this ‘U2’ were. I bought all their early singles before the debut album ‘Boy’ even came out. First saw them on a university tour at Strathclyde, with the ticket costing £1.75. I knew they were going to be massive. After the university, saw them at Tiffany’s Ballroom, then a bigger venue, then.... well, next stop stadiums and world domination.
    I always found it weird, watching U2 at Hampden or somewhere, and thinking back to a half empty Strathclyde University, and that young Irish kid in Listen records... a long time ago, a different world.
    Anyway, well done Wolf Alice.

    On the strength of @pozbaird's post, I downloaded both Wolf Alice albums  and have just listened to them back to back.
    While there are some great songs (such as Bros, Silk and Don't Delete the Kisses) I found a lot of it to be pretty derivative.
    I know that is a criticism aimed at a lot of new music but in this case the band have clearly been big fans of 4AD records because you can hear bits of Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Chapterhouse and Birthday Party while Space and Time is suspiciously similar to Chocolate by Snow Patrol.
    I enjoyed it despite that, it's much better than, say, The Dubliners, Brendan Shine or the Wolfetones.

    Saw Wolf Alice play on Sunday Brunch (Channel 4) of all places in 2015.
    Bought their first album as a result.
    Second album bought on day of release.
    So many different types of tunes in their repertoire.
    Anyway,going to see The Skids/Big Country concert in Barrowlands on December 21st.
    Last time I saw Big Country in Barrowlands was June 1986.
    Also, got Chvrches at The Hydro in February.

    With me it was seeing them on TOGWT. I was still at school and the following day walked from Merksworth to Listen and bought "Boy".
    I had received an unconditional acceptance to do Chemistry at Strathclyde when they played there but, because I wasn't technically a student they wouldn't sell me any tickets.  I did get to see them at Tiffany's though (small world Poz) when they were supported by The Alarm.
    That gig was the first time they played "Sunday Bloody Sunday" at a gig.
    Here is that gig at Tiffany's...
    Next gig for me is Killing Joke at the Barrowlands next month.
