    St Mirren v Kilmarnock 20th October

    Got to say, I agree, we should have taken off one of the strikers, it was obvious 5 mins into the second half we were being overrun in midfield. Even at 1-1 he could have done it and settled us down a bit. That first 15 minutes of the second half we were a shambles, which is a shame as it was the only point of the game where we weren't at least as good as Killie. It cost us heavily.

    St Mirren v Kilmarnock 20th October

    I see some people complaining about Danny Mullen looking for free kicks all the time. I don't know why, our goal and our two best chances all came directly from Hammils free kick delivery. They should all start playing for them!

    St Mirren v Kilmarnock 20th October

    I thought Kearney made a mistake early in the second half by not taking off one of Jackson or Mullen and putting on another midfielder. We were being over run and the game was lost in the 15 mins at the start of the second half. The rest of the game was pretty even, but the space Killie got in midfield at the start of the second half killed us. It was all way too easy.

    Saint Mirren V Hibernian 29.9.18

    This is exactly how I saw it as well. I genuinely thought MacPherson was lucky to even make it to half time, but his second half performance was excellent. If only he hadn't missed that sitter it would have been even better. I also agree that Flynn (and McGinn also for me) were good in the second half. Surprised at the negativity towards them when they were the ones driving the midfield forward in the second half and creating the chances.

    Saint Mirren V Hibernian 29.9.18

    I'm pretty sure it's because he's still massively unfit and doesn't have the legs to run back.

    You are making a fool of yourself.

    Mullen must be injured.
  8. I just thought the Celtic fans behaviour was quite weird. The ones in the family stand didn't actually sing a single football or Celtic song as far as I could hear. They never actually backed their team the way we did. I don't know how much that would affect the players in reality, but if you are going to support a team, you might as well support it rather than turn up and spend 90 minutes singing about things that happened before you were even born in a different country. It's just odd as much as anything else.

    Saints v Celtic, Friday 14th September

    To be fair, he did pre season and most of the rest of this season's training with Hearts, not us.

    Saints v Celtic, Friday 14th September

    I know it's a highly controversial opinion on here, but I quite liked having them in both stands. Thought the atmosphere was fantastic last night, the whole West stand was singing for the whole time and it looked like a similar story in the main stand. Just a pity the Celtic fans didn't actually sing a football song for the whole 90 mins.

    Saints v Celtic, Friday 14th September

    Absolute night and day compared to the previous games this season. Players looked motivated, confident and committed. The one thing they didn't look was fit enough to play with a high enough level of intensity in the second half, but that will come. It's just a real pity we couldn't take one of those first half chances. Thought Ferdinand and Edwards had very promising debuts. Mullen, Smith, Magennis and Baird all looked like new signings and a special mention for Hodson, playing out of position against James Forrest. I thought he did really well. Mind you, he did get a bit of a breather for that half hour where Rodgers inexplicably played that big donkey Ajer out there. We were just letting him have the ball and waiting for him to f**k up.

    Welcome back, Gus MacPherson.

    Gus was a great manager for St Mirren, one of the best. Took us from relegation battlers in the first division to an established Premiership team and made us contenders in the cups for the first time since the 80s. The fact he didn't give a f**k what a few whinging cunts in our support thought of him and treated them with the utter disdain they deserved was also a massive bonus. All that of course would only be relevant if he was coming in as a manager, but he's not.

    Stubbs can go now

    I agree with you, I really do. It pisses me off how quickly people got on Stubbs back, and how people were desperate for him to fail. It pisses me off how the new guys are hung out to dry, while the established players have all been equally shite and stomping round in a huff, bitching in the background. But we all know how this ends. It's already pretty obvious Stubbs is done, same way it was obvious Craig, Murray and Rae were done. The bile will ramp up, results will continue to be bad (god knows what Celtic will do to us) and he'll get sacked. Might as well do it now.

    Stubbs can go now

    If the choice is between a huffy and lazy Cammy Smith who has barely tried a leg so far this season, or a 39 year old Kenny Miller giving it his all, then I'll take Kenny Miller please. And if McGinn and Magennis are going to spend the rest of the season wandering around midfield in a huff, bitching about the manager and contributing f**k all because their pal didn't get picked, then they can go too.

    Welcome Alfie Jones

    Maybe we should only ever have 11 players at the club from now on, seeing as how anyone who isn't an automatic starter every week is now a waste of money and not needed?
