That’s the trouble these fitba players are far too young these days. Well you were a joy to sit beside, the atmosphere was immense last night, the stand was rocking and we all played our part.

We’re on our way!!

Highlights only show the first goal from McGinns pass, anyone found a clip which shows the whole move ?
Also , nice to see young Kyle doing well with the free kicks, don’t know if it’s been mentioned elsewhere but his touch and vision to find Baird for the goal was brilliant .... and great play from Baird to drop off and find that extra couple of yards space.

I was thinking that as well, cut off half the build-up :(

Baird has started 22 out of 23 games this season for the team that’s top of the league and lost only 4 games. 

He’s had a fantastic season, some dodgy moments (like every other player), but an amazing season and a few man of the matches in there as well. 

We don’t have a single player who hasn’t made mistakes but for some reason we always pick on the young centre half. 

He’s improving all the time and on current form his place in the starting 11 shouldn’t be questioned. 

Jack Ross seems to be getting the best out of him, not asking him to do things he’s not comfortable with. Let the others play football, pass it about and be creative. 

Previous managers have asked centre halves to play beyond their capabilities, with Jack he’s doing the simple things well and clearing his lines if in doubt. 

Gary Mac is rightly stuck sitting it out on the bench just now and only an injury or suspension will see him get back in temporarily. 

Just as well Jack Ross didn't see fit condemn him to the U-20 squad, on the advice of our resident "expert" on here.:lol:

Maybe we'll finally have a free kick specialist who goes some way to compensating for the loss of Stevie Mallan.

So if Davis and Mac had stayed fit and kept their last season form they showed when playing together do you think JB would of played as much? It's a completely fair comment 

My damning criticism of Baird was when he was making a lot of mistakes and costing us games. You say it like he's the only player I was frustrated with. I suppose again Lord Baird is untouchable for some. 

Zero inconsistencies. 

One of your statements last year were that he wouldn't even be useful back up (3rd choice) to Gary McKenzie and Harry Davis.

 

Your views on Jack Baird are up there with Lex's on Jack Ross. While Lex fully ignores the comments folk make ripping him for his views you are still arguing that you are right. You then dig up really silly arguments like, "but if Gary and Harry were fit at the start of the season" it's all a bit childish. You called it very wrong get over it.

 

People are allowed to have different opinions that's what this forum is great for. No one says Jack cannot be commented on but there's no harm in taking the piss out of someone who calls something so badly then refuses to accept they have.

 

Lord Baird does have a good ring to it though.

Not sure it's been mentioned/posted, crowd last night, a very decent 5,479 for a Friday night and on the telly.  :clapping
They count all season ticket holders even if they aren't there so I wouldn't trust that figure. I was at the last game there when they were around 6500 and there was a lot less pars fans last night as well as about 700 less buds.

Another one wanting to jump on the 'I told you so' wagon. My comment that I believe you're referring to is that my belief was Davis and Mac would be the first choice CB for this season. Because they play so well together and also have a goal threat, not one person could argue that last season. I'd said (again my humble opinion) I wouldn't be disappointed if JB left and JR used his wage to try bring someone in to challenge them at a higher quality. Again hindsight on the injuries would of been a useful thing but in not having it, IMO it was a fair comment. 

I was not the one that put up any comments today, people just seem hell bent on trying to prove something that isn't there. As you've said we all have opinions. People are free to disagree with mine but as I told Shull I'll always get triggered when people say simple lies about what I've said, that I can't have an opinion (May thee who don't praise Lord Bairdy be punished beyond reckoning) or that I have verbally abused a St Mirren players.

Feel free to show me one point that I've said that's actually been wrong? Being critical of his poor performances last season does not become wrong when he plays well this season 

Lord Bairdy chant next week! he's the only player I know that can step over the ball, lose where the ball is, then accidentally kick the ball out the park and then immediately have a chant started by the buddie fans! :lol:

Nor did Jack Ross but his opinion about Baird has been proved to have been more informed than yours.

A simple comment that I would like to see us bring in a player to challenge our established CB 10 months ago and it's came to this. 

Lord Bairdys black and white army. lol :P

Selective memory.
You were hounding the lad when most supporters could see that he would benefit more from support and ultimately the team would to.

You really are quite deluded.
