  1. And not very accurate. The sponsors logo never had a black border round it. Yeh, I am amazed someone has gone to the trouble of making it and quite a bad fake. The Clydeside sponsor is wrong, there is red bits in between the first couple of letters. They also have the adidas bit a bit out of line and the thing looks see through! Apart form that good stuff 🙂 Wonder if there is a batch on the markets in Spain.
  2. Was k-cool out in the 80s? Is it just me or does that look like a recent reproduction?
  3. I think what will have happened is the system will have shown seats as blocked when in actual fact they havent been. More likely we will now end up with gaps as opposed to double bookings. There was no where near this availability when I called and when I eventually got logged in, hence my panic buying 3 of few remaining seats in the family stand! I have sat in prime seats in W4 since it opened and due to this shambles I am not sitting in my seats!
  4. This goes from bad to worse this ticket situation. Like many others I couldn't get logged in when the scramble for tickets started. The web has never worked well for me since I got my kids tickets. So, I was told when I first called up 1 of my families season ticket seats was available and the other 2 were sold. They couldn't sell me any other seats at the time as they couldn't load the full template. I eventually got logged into the site yesterday around 3pm and none of my families seats were available and the only ones I could buy were in W1 so I opted for the family stand. I logged in just there and 1 of my families seats is available .... a different 1 to what I was told about in the phone call. This is an absolute shambles. The season tickets I bought for me and my kids are utterly pointless. Season ticket since the Jimmy Bone era... giving up this year - utterly pointless. Just can't see the point.
  5. A laugh and a joke in a gutter rag about a horrific tackle on a player of pure class. I remember the tackle and the aftermath. No remorse, disgusting person.
  6. I see the half time school at the mill up near the cricket park is being demolished now.
  7. Anyone remember when Dougie Vipond was a Saints fan... seems to have drifted in the last few years.
  8. They will at least get their chance when fit... not told they are surplus to requirements without him seeing them train/play.
  9. This!!!! I was discussing that very interview at the weekend! It was an utter embarrassment with the fumbling answer he gave. I gave him the very big benefit of the doubt after seeing that but I had my fears after that. I wondered if we had just been spoiled with the definitive talking from JR or if he was really just an idiot.
  10. Performances (and the subsequent results) make you popular. He had every bit the opportunity to do this. Sadly we've had far too few acceptable performances and a team littered with deadwood that are now on long term contracts and we need to offload. I hope HIS staff aren't far behind him.
  11. The record story was paraphrasing some Saints fans tweets from earlier in the day from what I could see! Regardless, the situation is untenable now. Stubbs never had the dressing room to lose. His MO when he came in was to stamp his own authority all over things and eradicate all talk of the previous regime and previous season. This is disrespectful to the players that were continuing and quite stupid in terms of removing the team spirit that can carry you over the line when up against it. Quite simply the feel good factor is well and truly gone from the dressing room to the stands. I get the need to be your own boss but you need to do that carefully, he never actually had a full scale rebuild to do, he only had a bit of quality to add and bit of depth. The guy blew a large part of his budget on deadwood squad fillers that are simply not good enough and would struggle in a division below ours. Time's up and a damage limitation effort is required to stay in the division. "Chippy Paper" my ar$e.
  12. My kids sit in the West Bank. Cost £50 and they are hooked on Saints. That said, buying the ticket was a nightmare - interstadia looks like a high school computing studies project gone wrong!
  13. What a night, the journey there was brutal getting through Glasgow, the journey home was brutal with that mad diversion. Someone mentioned "we play we win" in an earlier post. I never thought about the actual meaning of this before but I really get it now. We didn't play our game last night, we hoofed high balls down the flanks and were obsessed with crossing into the box to run in from the side. I really wish we were more composed and simply took our football to them. Utd are simply awful, on another day, we'd have had 4 off them easily - I know some of their more reasonable fans and they are very concerned! The ball just wouldn't fall for us last night. I'd also start Reilly. His speed was evident when he came on and instantly looked dangerous. Tbh, Mullen has had a couple of great shifts recently but last night just never worked for him, a few others had an off night too tbh. We play our game on Saturday, it will be hard but we will get there.
  14. Anyone got a couple of spare tickets for the west stand? Don't think I'll make it up in time to beat the rush for the last few tickets.
  15. It must have been 2200 -150 = 2050. Bizarre that they never just gave us all the tickets tbh.
  16. Cheers buddy. I don't drive at that time and wondered about the traffic. WAs wondering about the M8 and M80 in particular being busy?
  17. What time are people leaving from Paisley for the game? Half 5 too late?
  18. I think the results are a bit disappointing... seems like if we run this in 20 years time a couple of the names wouldn't be there which says it all.
  19. Wow... if this is as "mad" as it gets these days and there is such a reaction them game over. My days of taking a large flag to games and sitting in the middle of a singing section have long gone but I've personally been impressed by the behaviour of the fans that make up this group. A warning was all that was required. OTT and will have a negative impact to the atmosphere.
  20. Had a look on the council website, the plans are actually on there. The only entry/exit to this site will only be at Wallneuk Road! The units will sit at the back of the site where the trees are growing at the moment with the carpark of the site to the front. The drive through looks like it will be close the entry/exit point (naturally). Even if they ran one up into Gallowhill that would take a bit of pressure off for those heading East. Good point on the cinema/theatre causing more traffic but hey it's progress on what are 2 eye-sores.
  21. This is a fantastic bit of news for the town, some issues with The Range perhaps being a bit of competition for the town centre but I think the town centre is its own problem. The fact we are attracting Tim Hortons to 2 locations in the town and a Taco Bell to Phoenix is fantastic. As for the Wallneuk site, the roads will be a major issue and I fear our planners do their usual sterling job here and cause further issues. The delays at Weir and Incle (I think that's what that street coming from the Thai Siam bit under the bridge is called) are already bad some days. The delays heading into town are also bad, particularly at nights as buds are coming home. I think the daytime rush is people trying to get up and onto the M8 but are forced from Incle, round Weir, Abercorn Street and then up on to Renfrew Road. That problem of getting cars out and perhaps not round Incle, Weir and Abercorn street is the issue. At night, it's the reverse problem and it can be backed up from almost the Watermill to the junction we are talking about. When Tesco were going there years ago, there was talk about tunnelling under the railway or a bridge. I am not sure of the feasibility of that but that would help get cars to the East / South of the town a bit easier. Road issues aside and I will probably suffer from them! Great bit of business for the town and an improvement on what is becoming an eyesore of a site.
  22. Hi all. Is anyone on here a surveyor or can anyone recommend a local one? Looking for a small bit of advice regarding a dpc and drainage. Cheers BuddyH
  23. Far too soon as far as I can see. JR has done a fantastic job but I expect they will be wanting a bigger name (more fool them).
  24. Yeh, the ticket site is brutal and while not ours is a terrible user experience. It tried to charge me an adult price for my son Wouldn't let me add my youngest who has now got his first season ticket Has my old seat against me and I couldn't change it Works different on different browsers Had some bizarre UI features Overall, not quite sure how this got out into the real world. Would have been terrified parting with cash over it! Div, could you take over the ticketing website?
