  1. Watched it again on buddievision - the ref was correct and Heaton was playing the Spartans player onside - didnt even matter that it deflected off our guy. Linesman got it wrong, ref called it right, we didnt even appear to stop really.
  2. There should be bins at the front where the stewards sit during matches.
  3. Watching the goals on buddievision - the ref called the first one right - we didnt really even appear to stop playing, maybe Heaton pulled from challenging the guy in the box but the keeper just did poorly.
  4. Couple of things - Cammy Smith needs to be played centrally, he's not a wide player and never will be, we need to have our best players in their best positions. Heaton looked awful, struggled to control the ball and was out of position a lot - he did start to look a bit more confident in the last half hour and hopefully its just a bit of nerves playing his first game but first impressions were not great. I thought Baird played okay, he certainly looked a lot better than Heaton. King's distribution was terrible, he must have had 10-15 crosses and none of them hit a man. Kudos to the Spartans team and the goalie in particular who pulled off some brilliant saves towards the end, he was a character too. Thank god we have Stephen McGinn, in his first 5 seconds on the pitch he showed the rest of the team what it was all about and led by example as usual.
  5. Nice wee article about Jason - says good things about the buds. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/jason-naismith-reveals-knocked-back-12758004
  6. That's where it gets messy - usually theres something in the contract to say that its kept separate but from what i understand this clause wasnt inserted with McGinn's. Would be easier all round if another player isnt involved.
  7. Didnt think it would be, there was no argument between us or anything offensive there.
  8. Is that what you got sinbinned for? That's nuts, there wasnt any argument there.
  9. We also lost another bud last week - Andy Wilson, 52 - funeral was yesterday.
  10. He has nothing in his smisa mail from you, only correspondence he has relating to you was between you and Colin Orr.
  11. For the record, dave's never been contacted by Stuart on email, but maybe he's spelled his name wrong on the email - as its Nicol, not Nichol.
  12. I do know Dave and i can tell you the amount of time and effort he and the other guys put into the St Mirren takeover was huge. He doesnt reply to posts on forums because he doesnt use forums but im certain if you emailed him then he would respond, he's approachable, friendly and was by far the outstanding candidate, he would have been Gordon's preferred candidate given the work they had done together at that point. All the guys involved in getting the takeover off the ground put in hundreds of hours at their own expense of time and family commitments but its easy to be critical of people from behind a computer, the opportunity is there for everyone to be more involved in Smisa if they want to and think they can do a better job.
  13. GS doesnt pick the Smisa member, Smisa pick the Smisa member. As for a yes man for GS, nothing could be further from the truth, we currently have a superb Smisa representative on the board who brings a lot to the table and was hugely instrumental in the buyout of the club from the old board. When his tenure is up we will be lucky to get someone else with as much drive and enthusiasm for the club but im confident the members will pick the right guy as we did at the last election.
  14. back has a strike too, its not just a panel.
  15. New away strip fades from red into black, (mainly red) its nice.
  16. He wasnt sacked though, he decided to leave.
  17. Was more concerned about the imbalance in the squad and turnover of players, it has Alex Rae written all over it.
  18. Not great reading re McIntyre's time at Ross County. From when he was sacked. https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/ross-county/why-jim-mcintyre-s-sacking-from-ross-county-wasn-t-much-of-a-surprise-1-4569378
  19. Granted at Rotherham it was terrible - but his win rate at Hibs was 58% over 100 games. Jack Ross over 80 games was 52.5% - its absolutely anything but "as bad as it gets". One thing id say, the board interviewed last time and got it right, they discounted guys like Csaba Laszlo, and after interviewing only did Jack become the best man for the job when there was some decent Scottish names in for it. Ive full confidence that while the guy we pick might not be the most inspired choice that it will be a decent appointment again, this board are 1 for 1 and they are not idiots.
  20. That's basically what you did with John Kennedy, someone who is not even in the running for the job nor is being interviewed.
  21. He only finished with a point less than what Hibs won the league with the following season, he had a very good win rate, better even than Jack's with us while he was manager there.
  22. He did great for hibs, but sacked after 2 months at Rotherham is a concern.
  23. I think Stubbs will interview well and it will be him.
