  1. sorry to be a bore and all that fellow what but your hashtag is somewhat ruined, You see the word queue is the one you seek and not the cue as in pool cue. My baws remain in a hammock, remain in a hammock indeed
  2. However in that time the possibilty exists that a large, muscly, ethnic minority man may take a wee fancy to Tommy
  3. The words of a Glasvegas song come to mind I wont be the lonely one Sitting on my own and sad a fifty year old reminiscing what I had Forget Oran he's gone, he's gone, he's gone, he's gone, he's gone wooooahhh forget Oran he's gone! Oran has gone, gone he has indeed.
  4. Nice wee video At the risk of becoming a fun hoover like Shull I do have a complaint about the video Jamie Langfields shorts are too short, too short shorts indeed
  5. The faither is caller Youri The boy is called Oan So Jim Shall we sign the boy? Youri Oan or Youri aff
  6. Decent wee article, decent wee article indeed
  7. No Shull, I will not allow your depressing outlook on life to be bolstered by pishy fact grabbing without a modicum of intellect. You are one of those fun hoovers, devoid of joy and ambition. Purchasing a player of quality, whom we can afford at a time when we need him is NOT akin to the nonsense that nearly saw us go out of business in the early 1990's. I recall those days all too well. What should we use our income for? paying off managers every year or occasionally should we invest in the team when an opportunity like this presents itself. Teams around us occasionally "throw the dice" and teams around us occasionally break into the top six. Saint Johnstone, Motherwell and Kilmarnock all regularly out perform us whilst we are always left looking on. It is time that we redoubled our efforts and tried to match those who leave us behind every year. None of those three clubs are bigger than us but they DO deliver better league positions year on year.....this depressing fact shows that our club is NOT doing as well as it should be. With money coming in from players like Kenny McLean and John McGinn would it be reasonable to spend SOME of that cash on a quality player (who can always be sold on) or should we stay in the bargain basement having never tried? Selling players for profit (like the two above) is essential but if we cannot re-invest something in the team then what is the point? Big Mihai would in all likliehood generate a profit as players of his quality don't tend to stay in Scottish football long before an overly rich English club comes a calling!
  8. Thank you for that glimmer of hope. I see the "get real" brigade out in force with the usual negative nonsense that they seem to bathe themselves in. Fun hoovers who suck the joy from anything/everything. The fact is, the club does (for once) have a bit of money. The club has unearthed a player of real talent and he actually WANTS to play for us. So we CAN afford the asking price. What the negative band seem to overlook is that the player is worth every penny. If he is worth every penny to us just now he will be worth every penny in 2 years when we can look to sell him on. Of course that is discounting the fact that top league survival is all the easier with a good player like him in the centre of your defence. If we never try then Tony's top four talk is just that, mad ranting's indeed. If we are never going to "roll the dice" and make that attempt at improving our lot then what is the point?
  9. Right, I have just made a faux pas over on another thread. I was under the impression that Mr Popescu had signed. Have we let him go? Was the change in manager detrimental to the deal? Am I dreaming? As sure as my skidmarks are regular, he was a first class player........why oh why oh why?
  10. Ah FFS...... I was under the misapprehension we had signed the man. When did that go wrong? We are doomed, doomed indeed.
  11. Good post forum friend. I was nodding away as I read it (whilst avoiding the childish nonsense that was going on in other posts around it) and we agree on everything until that last line. That last line that I have conveniently highlighted in BOLD for the convenience of you and others. Being a fan of the Saint Mirren professional football club pte ltd co first team playing squad for me requires some optimism, admittedly at times blind optimism but optimism nonetheless. If one considers where we were at this time last year I would say our squad is ahead in terms of playing staff. We have a damn good goal keep and a back up for said goal keep. With Mr Popescu having signed on we are starting the season with quality at the back and with the young Mr Baird and the hero that is Gary Mack committed to our cause the centre half positions are for once not giving cause for concern (of course we have thingmie Heaton as well, he can clean Popescu's boots or something). Paul McGinn appears to have "come of age" and I am sure he has a good season ahead. Young Kyle Magennis will be like a new signing such was his absence(s) last term, Danny Mullen has established himself as a hard working goal scorer fit to don the stripes (a cult hero in the making), Cody Cooke has went from lump of wood to "get Cody oan", Ryan Flynn has endeared himself to the West bank with some lovely displays, Cammy MacPherson and Ethan Erhahon are a year older and a year more experienced and are poised to saunter into the team with a swagger, Stephen McGinn has some recovery ahead but all in all we have the backbone of an exciting squad. What we don't have is Cole Kpekewa in the centre of defence illustrating that you do not need to be able to kick a football, head a football, position oneself properly and in essence be able to play football in order to bag a 2 year contract, we don't have Jeff King, Matty WiIllock, Hayden Coulson (to be fair he was half decent) and the others whose names now escape me. All in all, I am optimistic for the coming season. I agree we have to throw the dice to secure a successful season, survival no longer the issue, the challenge is building around this core of players and letting them flourish. Flourish boys, flourish indeed.
