This is a genuine fear. The team looks good but we have not got a striker who can bag 15 plus goals a season. 

Brophy gives me the fear, was basically a penalty taker so got his goals from there. Honestly at present cannot see what he brings to team. Hardly touches the ball.....

Brophy , like all others at the club, should be judged by what he does in a Saints strip - not what has gone before. 
I wasn’t impressed when Main arrived but he will get my full support when he takes to the park - I’m not about to write him off because of past performances or scoring rate. 
 

& here’s the but …… if they ( or other strikers) are playing regularly and not scoring or at least providing assists by mid season …. Most people’s patience may well be stretched to the limit . 
 

Fingers crossed 🤞

Outside of the green bigots, it would appear that the rest of the SPFL teams don't have one either.:rolleyes:

Always the most difficult position to fill. This is the reason why only half decent players like Shankland and Nisbet get valued at a million plus.

We had a 10+ Goal per season striker(probably as good as we will get at our level) who was absolutely awful in his first 6 months but we just released him.

Under Goodwin we have now played over 10 different strikers let's just say not many have been that good.

If you are referring to Obika, then no, we didn't.

Going by the link you shared he scored 20 goals in 2 seasons (57 appearances) so thank you for clarifying that I was right.

He did indeed score 20 goals . 12 first season 8 in second when he ( probably) didn’t play as many minutes so yes, a 10 goal a season player .

I was assuming that it was 10+ each season.

Not an average.

Silly me.:rolleyes:

League goals in two seasons was 13. So averages at 6.5 goals a season in the league.

The previous poster never said 10+ goals a season in a the league just said 10+ goal per season. The article about McGrath calls him a 17 goals scored midfielder not a 17 league goals scored midfielder moot point to be honest in your post.

Correct Clydebank he was a 10+ goals per season striker he will go down in Scottish Football History and as a St Mirren legend for relegating Hearts as the person who scored the last goal in Scottish football as Covid took sport off the world map for over a year.

He also had 8 more matches to add to his tally which I'm pretty sure he would have.

I don’t really care what the previous poster said to be honest, but league goals are how top flight strikers should be judged as heightening goals per season record when playing against lower league oppo gives a false impression. By the way, not having a go at obika. We have a lot to thank him for, but we haven’t had a 10+ league goals a season player on the top flight since thommo and obika was not the long term answer. Most teams outside the top two don’t generally have a 10+ goals a season player.

Just speculation I know, but what's the general feeling about the likelihood of Jamie McGrath still being a St Mirren player until January or beyond ? I'm just wondering if Jim Goodwin is planning for the season ahead with McGrath as a key part of his midfield or is he already accepting that he'll possibly be offski (presumably to Hibski like so many others)? Pre-season work could be bolloxed if McGrath goes without us having a robust Plan B in place.
