    Tam M reacted to djchapsticks in Darryl Duffy   
    Here is the thing. If he has been on trial with us for several weeks (which he has) and Jack Ross has had enough of a look at him in that time to make a decision based on merit, then why would we question the wisdom given Jack's very good record so far in signings? 
    If he's been signed then clearly he is up to the standard that the rest of our lads train at. If Jack Ross had two weeks to assess and thought he'd be carrying dead weight in Duffy then there is no way he'd have brought him in. Jack and indeed James Fowler are not the sentimental type as we saw when they quickly moved Scott Gallacher and Kyle Hutton on after they'd won POTY the previous season under both men with Alloa and QOS.

    Looks like the options are "loaded" and, TBH, there is little real outcome than what the club sees as a request to "improve the club", all more whataboutery.
    The idea of helping the community was a selling point, as I recall, and there seems to be little of the cash doing exactly this.
    Never mind, the "we support the club till we're blue in the face" crew will be overjoyed and, after all, it is democracy.

    Agree with others here that although the outcome was democratic and very much as I expected, I would dearly have loved to have done more for the wider community.
    The club would have reaped rewards at some point in the fufure.
    Sometimes investing in others is a better long term investment in self!

    Have to agree about the Community side of things.The weights option should have been in the same section as the Sports Scientist with the other section only being for Community related stuff.
    Everything seems to be weighted in favour of the Club.There's not been a decent vote to date.

    Looks like whenever there are items in the vote that would give straight to the club, then those choices are always going to win, can't say i'm against anything that enhances the product on the park, but i am disappointed that we don't get much of a chance of helping the commuinity in general. It was one of the selling points of the bid after all. Maybe a vote which is free of any requests from the club every so often could address that.

    I was at hospitality when we pumped Ayr 6-2 and Raith 5-0.

    I'll be happy if anyone wants to pay for me to attend for the season.

    Seen that on twitter, not looking so good this early in the season to have so many injuries. It seems there are more trialists playing in the Ross county game, the lad Miller plus a few more, let's hope we don't get any more before sat.

    It's good to see that all the work they've been doing for diabled supporters has been rewarded by The Scottish Disabled Supporters Association

    Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of Tams passing and as i will be in Arrochar i am posting this today.The past season has been very difficult without the wee man at my side but can i just thank the many St Mirren fans who at games have quite simply put a hand on my shoulder or a knowing nod in recognition.The fact his name is still chanted at games and the young player of the year award being named in his honour shows the high regard he was held within our support and has helped Mary,Steven and the girls come to terms with their loss.Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers.
    I humbly ask that you take time out and raise a glass or 2 to remember Tam who was quite simply the greatest guy i have ever known.
    We,re on our way Tam We,re on our way.

    Good job I stuck a few quid on Corbyn PM and no party majority then!

    Might even need to crack open the Malt at some point.

    Tam M got a reaction from Eaglesham saint in Gregor Buchanan and the other Ross Stewart Sign   
    I think the difference is that we are signing players from teams who are absolutely gutted these players are leaving, and believe they deserve the chance to step up. We've not just went and picked up half of Cowdenbeath's first team squad.

    We have struggled with having players in depth for many seasons. If we have a first 11 with quality experienced professional, mixed with a our talented young players like Baird, Magennis and Morgan. Whilst having a good squad of players as back up who have performed well at a lower level with a point to prove when called upon, can only be positive. We're not going to have 22 players who are good enough to consistently play in the first team.

    Some of these signings will pay off some won't. They won't be on large sums of money and so it is low risk high reward.
