    Be careful, Tony can do no wrong, according to some who get mixed up with a decent football player and a CEO.

    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.

    Tam M reacted to Oldfellow in Top Four Says Tony   
    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.

    Tam M reacted to Kemp in Dundee Utd v St Mirren Play Off First Leg   
    That type of football doesn't really make me proud to be a St Mirren fan.
    United were there for the taking and we had no interest in exploiting that.
    Kearney might say he doesn't have the players to play otherwise but I doubt he will ever have quality like Kyle McAllister in attack for us again.
    I suppose we need to be pragmatic but I'd really like to see better quality football than the pish I just sat through tonight.

    I want to support Oran and give him a chance to turn it around but his team selection/tactics are just baffling.

    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.

    Any windfall does not need to be spent now.
    A small percentage can be used for sensible wages for 2 players and the majority put away for a very rainy day.

    I’d need to see it again but at the time Cole was a lot closer to the ball and the Dundee forward started a good couple of yards behind him. Given the pace of the Dundee forward and the distance Samson would have to have covered, it’s Kpekawa for me.

    At the moment it feels like your glamorous girlfriend who gave you 11 beautiful children has left you and she has been substituted by an unglamorous girl with children who dont or cant do as they are told.I hope that their ipads are taken from them and they are exercised to full fitness and shown what it means to play at this level.Adding a few more siblings who they can actually learn from may bring us future joy and happiness.
    On a serious note we have always said we are in this together,St Mirren family etc.Alan and the players will get my full backing and i will judge them over the next few months.Its far to early to start swinging the meat cleaver.Come on you Saints.

    Tam M reacted to djchapsticks in St. Mirren v Sunderland, friendly 21/7/18   
    Yeah, I wasn't getting at you about it. I was with you on the 'wait and see front'.
    I've seen enough in 3 games to be able to make a judgement that something is amiss though and the best chance of overhauling that is the addition of personnel who are good enough.
    Stubbs also knows this going from his post match comments. In the space of a week he's gone from bullish and coming away with pish about 'marquee signings' to now being 'hopeful that a couple' will come in.
    We're a lot more than 'a couple' away from looking like a good sid,e though. The three guys on trial today clearly proved that they are not good enough but it's worrying that Stubbs even thought they might be, given none of them have a particularly impressive CV. Patterson perhaps did at one point but he's clearly 4 or 5 years beyond that point despite only being 31. If Stubbs thinks this is the calibre of player that might be passing as acceptable in the Premier League then he's seriously misjudged just how tough a league we're going to be operating in.
    I don't think we, as supporters are asking for a lot in our club's signings... merely basic competence at the level we are looking to operate at. There is a staggering lack of that being brought in this summer.
    Oh and Jack Ross doesn't get off Scot free either - easy to forget that Jim Kellerman was his signing and looks to be operating at roughly the same level as the rest of the jobbers we've signed.
     
    I hope to be looking back on this in 9 or 10 months from now, holding my hands up and admitting with a massive grin on my face that I made a cock of myself....that at least two or three of Cole Kpekawa, Jeff King, Cody Cooke, Jeff Heaton, Kellerman etc are absolute gems and I've been far too quick off the mark....but the worry is that there is so little spark there from any of them even at this point where they would be going baws oot to impress their new fans. Nothing to make you go 'you know what? They look like they could come on a bit with the right amount of time and patience'....that's what's worrying me the most. That there are more James Marwoods and Callum Balls in that batch than Connor Newtons and Paul Dummetts.
