    Tam M got a reaction from ALBIONSAINT in Coronavirus   
    I’ve just finished self isolating after testing positive. Was ill for about 10 days, just felt like a really bad flu. Took the test on the off chance due to how long it was lasting. I suspect I got it via the weans most likely as there were positive cases at their school, and had hardly been out the two weeks prior to symptoms.

    I was really disappointed with T&T, I got my results back on the Wednesday and it took until the Saturday for them to contact me for close contacts. They didn’t contact close contacts for another 2-3 days after, of which one of them finished their self isolation period on the same day!

    Tam M got a reaction from St.Ricky in Wage League table   
    Whilst the average wage in Scotland might be £31k, how many hours a week is required to earn that.. 35-40 generally.

    How many hours do the players work? Probably about half of that. So if you drill down into earnings per hour, there would be a significant difference.

    But it’s also a shorter career, less stability etc. Swings and roundabouts.

    I was Yes in 2014, and I’ve never moved from that position. I have no particular affliction to any particular party and in an independent Scotland would vote for the party with a manifesto I agreed with the most. I would hope with independence we would see an emerging of a number of new parties.

    For me the recent General Elections and EU Referendum just demonstrates how far apart the political landscape is in Scotland compared to England.

    I am expecting my first child next year with my Polish girlfriend, so remaining in the EU is more of a driver for me than before - although pleased to say she had settlement status granted recently.

    The FPTP system is outdated and needs changed. The system for Scottish elections means it is extremely difficult to get a majority meaning all parties need to work together, and this also appeals to me.

    The key element for me however, is I don’t want a WM government we don’t vote for making decisions that impact Scotland. In an independent Scotland, if the government is not performing we can hold them account at the next election. With so much power held at WM, we have no say at the minute, and I find it bonkers. I just want decisions for Scotland made by a Scottish government voted by those who live in Scotland.

    Tam M reacted to Stu in The 3 Monthly Spend   
    Sadly, that is what it is looking like at the moment. I'd be very interested to know what, if any, support they get from St Mirren FC - of which the women's team is a part, not a separate entity. The club should be providing them with kit as the bare minimum, SMiSA should not need to be funding this. Surely that could be part of the kit deal? It certainly used to be for the youth academy (don't know if it is since we left JD Sports).
    I see most of the women's games are at Ferguslie - why are they not allowed to play at Ralston? Are they allowed to train there? If not, why not?  We have a nice 3G pitch that SMiSA paid for they could surely be allowed on
    The women's team seems to be run on as little funding as possible. They have held crowdfunding campaigns just to get basic kit to get them up and running. They held a fundraising evening in a bar in Paisley - surely they could have been allowed to use the ground?
    It doesn't look particularly good to the outside world that the women's first team are having to ask for money for kit while the men's youth team is so well funded that the most pressing thing on their list is money for a trip to England.

    If you think it's bad here you should go on the various St Mirren Facebook pages. Yesterday they were going into meltdown because someone had to pay a fiver to get a new smartcard. I fully expect today's shenanigans will have sent some of them over the edge.

    Totally agree. Perhaps if he spent more time improving how the club functions eg ticketing system he might fulfil the role of a proper CEO. 
    Being a CEO requires a lot of skills very few of which he appears to have. Frankly I'm fed up with him. I know he loves the club. So do I but I would be a crap CEO.

    The High Street is dead and it is not coming back in its current form.
    Pension firms can invest elsewhere at the drop of a hat and quite frankly anyone investing in retail right now needs their financial credentials checked.
    Everything is moving online because virtually everyone wants that.
    The future for town centres is low cost accomodation for young people with supporting entertainment facilities.
    Just needs the right combination of people with enough money and vision to make it happen. Everywhere else is going to be left behind.

    It’s a vanity project. 
    The W7 guys are standing anyway and a bit of common sense management is seeing the club, stewards and police turn a blind eye. 
    Why anyone would want to spend money on something like that is beyond me. We’re a small club and funds should either be invested in the product on the park or in another way that will see a profit return on an investment. 
    The W7 guys aren’t going to stop going to games if we don’t put in safe standing. 
    It’s money down the drain if we do it. 
    Unfortunately, as you’ve highlighted, our chairman may well buy into this vanity project to replicate our Glasgow neighbours and chase a bit of PR. 
    I certainly don’t think it’s where our priorities should be.
