    I listened to the pod cast thought Lewis came over as the great guy he is. In his time at St.Mirren I was lucky to get to know him well and his mum and dad. Lovely family. Great player for us. I remember him playing his his first u20s he was so thin his Jersey was hanging off him. But he had pace. And good technique. I will always love his last game and scoring the winner V Morton. Then celebrating behind the goal to the Morton fans. Brilliant. Best of luck to him in Miami.

    We have a manager who was less than startling last season 
    We have players that most other teams wouldn't have and we still need almost 40% to add to the team.
    These statements are fine when you have people in place to make likely 
    At this point, we don't. 
    PS I should add if Ross had stayed I think we could have made a decent attempt to climb out of the bottom six.

    It sounds pie in the sky until you watch the likes of Motherwell, St Johnstone, Kilmarnock and Livingston do it.
    Then when you call it pie in the sky under those circumstances it looks like a lack of ambition.
    Hibs and Hearts should be up there but rarely are.
    Other than Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen then, exactly who is it that we are afraid of so much that to suggest we could be ahead of them next year is "pie in the sky"?

    For those who didn't make the game, his brother Peter came on the pitch at half time and said a wee thank you to fans of both clubs for their kind words this week.
    Was quite touching as he was choking back tears.

    Bottom line... the hard truth that quite a few choose to ignore, or even worse dispute... is that we are a very poorly run club!
    Over three years since BtB and not one single new revenue stream has been created to bring funds into the club.
    The current board have got by on transfer income from players signed & developed by the previous regime.
    Kyle Magennis falls into that bracket too, but his stock will fall in an underwhelming team like ours.
    This board are on their FIFTH manager in three years and that could soon be six..!

    Isnt that the most telling fact that they cant get THEIR job right, so why should we, or they expect the people recruited by them to be any better?

    It's a bit harder to achieve at a smaller club like ours given employee numbers, but their needs to be a clean line in responsibilities between the board and the team management. Having the chairman deciding who we are going to spaff money on because he doesn't trust who he has employed is madness, and repeating the same flawed process time after time.

    And employing your mate to agree with you just sums up how little you know in running an effective organisation. Feck me how many years now have fans suffered a piss poor ticketing system?
    Wouldn't you think that would have been a priority to sort to keep the tills ringing?
    Nope.. more effort goes into selling out to sectarianism because that's easy, and it's a "Society Issue"...
    Goody will be in an impossible position come the end of the month with some of his better (dont laugh) players moving on, and being stuck with the ones he knows aren't up to it.
    Is it possible the likes of Oran might have wanted to take the Hladky money Qarabag were offering and invest it in 3 or 4 decent players?
    You know like one of those £5 -£10k a week guaranteed goalscorers?
    Instead we will likely be relegated, and Hladky will walk for nowt, or maybe a pittance in January.
    We are a poorly run club...
    What you are seeing on the pitch is the evidence of just how poorly run we are.

    It hasn’t seemed to do us any favours considering the board were long planning for Goodwin before forcing Kearney out of the door.
    The way things are going, this time next season we will be languishing back where we started in the Championship. This club is not progressing any more and hasn’t since Ross left, minus the brief Jan-May spell with Kearney.

    Really?
    McPhee was a big part of our League Cup success and 8th placed finishes. Indeed, our Danny actually credited Austin with the tactics behind our victory over the green bigots in the semi final.

    He was headhunted by Michael O’Neill to join the back room staff for Northern Ireland. He would go on to be part of the NI team who went from not qualifying for anything in years to making the knockout stages of the Euros. Indeed NI are still punching above their weight now, and McPhee is still a part of that.

    I really hope they both prove me wrong but him and obika have been massively shite! No excuses for some of the chances theyve both made an arse of. Said it an earlier post but there’s reserves there banging them in, get them in, they seem more hungry.
