    Readers digest, driving my new fangled automobile (horseless carriage), smoking woodbines and doffing my oversized cap. Going to football of the Paisley kind and being old and getting older and this forum and discussing things and eating and drinking and breathing.

  1. I agree, well done Brora. Other leagues should be decided in the same manner. Of course the south side of Glasgow bigots will act like spoilt children and despite all the suffering that is going on Annwe Budge will try and sue thoroughly degrading the name of football. However I would not be averse to a little bit of recontruction in order to allow the SPFL to bottle it. 18 team top league anyone?
  2. Today I will not be Wynching a lassie at the Kelburne Enjoying folk night at the Brabloch Warching Dan McGarry dribble the arse off of Stanley Matthews. Buying a new telly from Arnotts. Enjoying a Jaconelli's ice cream. Buying new woollen gloves with "SMFC" written accross the knuckles from the club shop in the old Piazza. Not smell of pish Dancing in the Templars or the Co-Op Attending at the Methodist hall to pay my union dues. Heading out to the Elliston grill for lunch, Swimming at the Storrie St baths. Parking my car in Storrie St car park and paying Felix for the pleasure. Playing snooker at Knox St. Watching the Pirates in the ice rink. Booing Cassius Clay from the ring at the ice rink. Serving my country again. Voting Tory. Voting Labour. Joining Smisa. Walking past the Turf tavern, popping in for one more and regretting it. Buying anything from Lews. Referring to pen corner and expecting any of you to know what I am talking about. Having a pish in the public toilets in Dunn square.
  3. I am pretty much isolated. Other than a trip to Aldi the only other human contact I have had in the last week was the Amazon delivery man. By the time I got to the door he was halfway up my garden, the boy was right as I might have coughed on him. All relatives are either self isolating or dont want to visit in case they have it and are not showing symptoms. According to the news im pan breid if I get it so who can blame them? A friend of mine, whom I maintain contact with through the whatsapp, was left sitting in his livingroom when his carer failed to show. I feel sorry for old folk at this time, lonlieness can be hard. Im alright, I can work a computer so I can keep upto date, find something to read or even hop on here to read whatever drivel folk are falling out about today. I will be okay. Cairters Corner world cup of of fannies, best 5 a side team, favourite player and now favourite manager polls kept me well entertained. Missing the fitba is difficult though, often its the only time I get out in a fortnight (excepting Aldi). Still I always have BAWA to keep my lonely old spirits up. Stay safe folks, stay safe indeed.
  4. NEWS REPORT "Oh Corona 19, you killed the football scene and Hetrz urnae too keen" Sang supporters of Paisleys greatest ever sporting institution to the tune of Come on Eileen at the Fegie dome today. What was the occasion? Well after much deliberation and shite hawking in the corridors of power those few SFA blazers who survived the Corona 19, or as it has become know the "e-plague" pandemic (after academics discoverd it could actually be spread by e-mail) have finally reached a decision to relegate Heart of Midlothian to the championship. In a meeting that only last month began with the 21 "blazers of power" in deadlock finally ended at lunch time today with the three remaining living blazers voting 2-1 in order to relegate the team left bottom of the pile by the remarkable Job Obika. Such was the tension around the decision that supporters of the Saint Mirren professional football club pte ltd co first team playing squad gathered at the Fegie dome as St Mirren chairman Alan Wardrop addressed the excitable crowd. The new Chairman, following Chairman Scott vacating the hot seat to run as a Conservative candidate in one of the many seats vacated by dead elderly Tories following the e-plague, Chairman Wardrop compared himself to Cesear himself. "Friends, Buddies, Countryman" he began as the now fever pitch crowd, undoubtedly ramped up by the fact that most of them have not been allowed out of the house since Boris banned commoners from being out in daylight until the Corona 19 epidemic stopped killing rich people, began kicking over the "wank wall". The Wank wall of course being a local name for the Smisa wall, Smisa being a now failed group who clubbed together, built a wall and put their own names on it. Well the wank wall and Hearts had something in common, both had to go down. Similar scenes could be found at New Douglas park as a huge crowd of upto 14 accie fans turned out to rejoice as once again the Accie turd was not flushed. In other news, following the timely death of Rupert Murdoch after his covid inspired end Paisley journalist Kyle Gunn has been appointed chief journailst of all UK newspapers and director pupper master of the BBC. Good luck Kyle.
  5. Dear club Please keep my money, this was not an investment made with any expectation of return but an annual subsciption made through habit and loyalty. As ever my blind devotion has brought me just a little joy and just a little value, until the Hearts game that was. The sight of big Jon holding off two Jam Tarts and sticking the ball past thon keeper brought an old man much happiness. The treat of learning later that big Jon handled the ball only made the moment sweeter. I for one appreciate that staff need to be paid, bills must be met and our beloved club must endure. My season ticket money is yours to keep, please spend it wisely. Now excepting my death, be it through age, disease or this bloody covid 19, I shall be renewing my season ticket and come hell or highwater please continue to accept my little but regular economic contribution to Paisleys greatest ever sporting institution. Halting the football is the right thing to do, it just is not that important. However not so unimportant that can be alowed to fail. We have future generations whom deserve the opportunity of much dissapointment and sparse joy like I and those before me. Yours in sporting admiration Tom
  6. Richard, is the club likely to have business continuity insurance?
  7. I was just about to suggest that very thing, just about to suggest that very thing indeed.
  8. The problem with this team is that Faraway, St Ricky, Shull, Oaksoft and myself have all been accused of being then same person by rabid idiots on this little fine forum of ours. Does that pose a selection problem? The team also needs that wacky, on a different scale fan, Hamilton had Fergie, we have Derek Superfan so I nominate Pod. Pod would our very own vitriolic box of hate. You know, the type that would have made Fergie look like a brain surgeon. Also the team is owned entirely by BAWA. Smisa are getting no where near it lest we have a wank wall. Farmer John can be the groundsman as I assume he has a tractor with which he can cut the grass and use it for hay.
  9. I was over on the twitters a few moments ago and I saw a poll by Cairters corner regarding a club constitution. What a good topic of conversation I thought so popped on here I did and start this very thread so I did. Anyway with Smisa poised to grasp control of our wonderful club, would you like to see a club constitution? What should be in it? Cairters poll was ragarding our strip and I shall steal his suggestion 1) The Saint Mirren professional football club pte ltd co shall always play in black and white vertical stripes (maybe a splash of red) I would also add 2) This club stadium shall always be in Paisley, Paisley is our home and shall always be. What else would you like to see in it? Consider this an opportunity for discussion at least until the rampant name calling descends. *regarding (what am I like eh, put me in a home they should)
  10. I agree with your sentiment For no reason whatsoever other than maybe boredom I shall relate your statement to myself 1) Look at me - If you wish you can, whatever floats your perverted boat 2) I'm great - Yeah I am very much so 3) I go to games - Yes I do, I go to all home games and the very occasional away game. I used to go home and away for many years but I am no longer able to and I may as well as when the michty Mirren are playing I sit at home nervously watching the score! 4) For the love of the ......tooth fairy. She doesnae exist if she did the cow would owe me a fortune. Unexisting bitch! Again your statement was not aimed at me and I had no reason to reply but alas it would seem you don't need a reason to start a bloody thread never mind reply to one!!!
  11. To answer the OP's boufing original post I shall contribute the following So Jim Goodwin is like Jack Ross? Let us examine the similarities 1) Both were professional footballers 2) Both played in league cup finals with our glorious club 3) Both manage(d) our glorious club in the top tier of Scottish football. 4) Both have first names that start with the letter "J" 5) Both have English as a first language 6) Both are male Let us now examine the differences 1) One played at full back the other in midfield and occasionally centre half 2) Only one is a league cup winner 3) Only one currently manages our glorious club the other pissed off at the earliest opportunity for some extra coinage 4) One has a last name beginning with "R" the other a "G" 5) One is Scottish the other Oirish 6) Whilst both are indeed male, it is beyond doubt that Mr Goodwin has the largest walloper 7) One has hair the other has not Conclusion So you can see that both men have 6 distinct similarities but 7 differences so on balance they are NOT that similar, NOT that similar indeed.
  12. This little forum of ours is some achievement. What a fabulous legacy to leave, take a bow Div, take a bow indeed.
  13. Thank goodness for that. An appalling decision that caused fun to be poked at our national game , the world over. One must of course express concern over this debacle. Whilst I applaud Ian Maxwell's handling of this one cannot help but wonder just how often club's appeals have been treated with such derision in the past. Of course this didn't happen to an old firm player, that would be unthinkable however is this clear evidence that the old playing field is not and never has been level?
