  1. The cycling podcast were last night reporting that Paisley had been interested in bidding for the Grande Partenza in 2020 but now Cardiff is looking like they will bid and we have withdrawn because they will be too strong to compete with. How amazing would that be to have a Grand Tour in town?
  2. it is typical saints that they've got me so enthused that I'm willing to pay a couple of quid for extended highlights and I cannae give them my money.
  3. I'm trying to sign up for buddievision from my ipad and it's not liking any of my email addresses. Anyone got any ideas what's up?
  4. There should be a baby change table in each of the disabled toilets. Cost is negligible and brings us further towards being a 21st century operation.
  5. I get this div, but I reckon that the bureaucracy is off putting. I had a free ticket for one of my daughters but messed up last year and missed the deadline so this year the occasional matches she had attended I've had to use pal's spare tickets or bought her one. I also have a football obsessive nephew who is a thistle fan but when my dad had a season ticket he had the kids ticket and came to saints when thistle were playing away. Makes a change from young boys and girls only being interested in the glamour of the English Premier League. I think that in a stadium with, usually, as many spare seats as ours has we should be encouraging all kids in. We are competing with the armchair spectator experience of English football and need to use all the tools in our arsenal.
  6. I voted three noes. Would love to see Smisa investigate away to allow all kids into the game free all the time. I don't think any of the options listed are particularly inspiring but if they are approved by the majority I won't be going in the huff about it.
  7. I understand the money is not entirely guaranteed but the ballpark figure is surely solid enough to permit a salary range to be given. I don't know how much it costs to fund a shooting network at our level but I can't see how the variable range of SMISA income is an insurmountable obstacle.
  8. I wonder if this is something we could fund with SMISA money?
  9. They are excellent. I've had two afternoons of entertainment with the weans hunting them already and I'm only about half way through. Seems like a good initiative.
  10. We need to make it much easier for kids to gain free access to the ground. Something akin to what Partick do where all kid in the home support under 16 get in for free. Our own season ticket initiative is good but there are too many hurdles - deadlines, conditions of purchase - to truly serve the purpose of maximising our engagement with young people. Let's just have a simple rule of letting U16s in for free.
  11. When I told my old man about his death he said he was a great player. He said that, for all everyone raved about Jimmy Johnstone, Bryceland was better. We met him at hospitality and my 70 year old dad was starstruck like a teenage girl.
  12. In terms of moving your seat to a different stand for a game it's not been a problem for me. If you call the ticket office they can void your season ticket for one game and give you a paper ticket for the other stand. At least that's what they did for me when I took my nephew to the family stand.
  13. I thought Rooney looked good. It was difficult for any of our trialists to make much of an impression when Burnley were so dominant.
  14. I wouldn't have a season ticket as I do many other things during the summer months. I'd still go to games but would pick and choose while paying at the gate.
  15. I've had a look inside 'the void' and it looks like it could hold more than 200. Is that figure definitely correct? Anyway, as has been mentioned above, it's still extra cash.
