If we stay up... Give us the family stand back.

Totally agree, give them one stand.  But I for one would never take my boy to an old firm game at home because of their behavior and I'm sure plenty others do.  

I took my boys to watch St Mirren. Reasons - They were local, they had an exciting young manager and played attractive football.

That was around 1975.

My sons and now my grandson go still - we have an exciting young manager and the last few seasons have been memorable to say the least.

I wouldn't allow myself to react to the sets of fans you mention by not going along to watch my team playing at home.

Just my view.

If ever we needed proof that's it's not worth the money giving them 2 stands just look to yesterday when RA PEEPUL trashed the disabled area because they scraped past Killie....
They also forced entry into the ground through an exit gate.
Guy filming it has the cheek to shout about Hillsborough.
f**king scum

Young minds are easily influenced.  He's old enough now to make his own mind up. Still doesn't attend, as also myself.

Pod... I naturally respect the decisions the two of you have made.

We tended to look at it differently - they were definitely an example of how not to behave.

I must have missed the club statement telling families and kids you're not welcome at SMP.

Or is this yet another fabrication?

 

It's not about the club not welcoming families it's about allowing the bigots both ends behind the goals despite their behaviour.  I think those saying they stay away is because it's became even more poisonous an atmosphere at home games when they're in town. Doesn't stop me going but i can understand why a lot of people with families choose to miss the game, perhaps not discouraging future fans in the process  but definitely not encouraging.

Pre Match Entertainment- Cancelled

Family Stand - Closed and given to violent horde, families and children not welcome

Segregation - joke

Ticket Price - near 20% hike..!

and the board seriously ask why Saints fans choose not to attend these fixtures..?

Broken record yet again. 

Where do the board ask why fans choose not to attend these fixtures and how do you explain more home fans at a celtic fixture last season than a Killie one within the space of a fortnight? More lies and spin for a point that's been labored for far too long now.

Please go on your secatarian clubs fan website and defend the indefensible.

Until we can fill the seats with St Mirren fans there's justification in the arrangement. Topic done to death and just because someone understands the financial benefit doesn't mean they are fans of these clubs.

Simple solution. The answer is in our own hands. Turn up in sufficient numbers over the season and buy out the family stand through season ticket sales.

When was the Panda Club and Pre Match Entertainment cancelled?

You do know that there needs to be something organised first before it can be cancelled.

Ticket price, exactly the same as last Novembers game against Rangers.

And you wonder why folk say they don't trust what you say or write.

 

Thats a laundry list of shit appeasement right there, even by your standards.

is the Panda club and pre-match entertainment (not the marching flute band) happening..? NO.

is it £5 more for an adult home ticket than the Aberdeen game, Yes...

some peole,just cant handle the truth, we are run by the old bigots! What they want, they get. Even re-badging the stadium.

..... My shifts at work determine which games I can attend these days. ...... I'm free to go to the next home game but I definitely won't be in attendance though, and nor will my young daughter. .......... Two home fans who would normally attend but won't. ....... That's just for starters, I'm sure there will be many more like us. ...

If only it was that simple.   The more successful, the more the possibility, but I wouldn't hold my breath.  We have fans who work Saturdays, who have moved further afield and can't afford the expense, unlike you.   A couple of possibly a dozen reasons why people can't attend.

...... Agreed. We are never going to have 6000+ season ticket holders. I can't think of a club of a similar stature who has. ...... I also can't think of a club of a similar stature who sells their home end to the OF when they come to town. ....

You seem a tad upset getting presented with actual facts.

So please tell us all, when did the planned Panda Club for this game get cancelled and what pre match entertainment was planned?

It's all there for everyone to see, you wrote it had been cancelled so come on, please share with us the information you have.


So when you're presented with figures comparing like for like, you then say you weren't talking about like for like games. So is it just league games where prices go up you want to rant about or would we see a rant if say we were playing a cup game and the prices were reduced?

We wouldn't want you getting accused of hypocrisy now would we. (That's not a question, its sarcasm)

Now I'm being stupid, asking him questions. He's got me on ignore. emoji23.png

You think anyone buys that crock of shit!

the hard facts are both the panda club and pre-match entertainment are CANCELLED for this match. I.e. Because the board have given the children and their families seats away to sectarianism neither event is happening. Or maybe tou think they are happening?

in addition to that, segregation is cancelled, as is reasonable security measures of keeping opposition fans off the park.

and it will be beamed around the world live on TV with viewers wondering exactly which team is the home team.

it is a scourge on our club, and the resentment is growing against it. Except you and Bazil seem all for it, now theres an exclusive members club lol.

Evidence that the majority of SMFC fans don't support this arrangement please? Also please note there's a difference between supporting & liking. Would much prefer we had extra SMFC fans taking these seats but we don't.

We as a club need to look at all possible income streams & solutions to empty seats is no different.

I understand the point you make about affordability and Saturday working as well as distance. For me, add family responsibilities as I have been a carer for 40 years. 

None of the 5 of us live within 40 miles of the stadium, one in Leeds. Two of us are retired. One works on Saturday's. He is a student.

At the end of the day we each prioritise our use of time and money in our own way which is what it should be. 

Over the last 3 years more people, year on year, have prioritised coming to watch our team. The question is... Will more people still continue to prioritise coming along? 

I don't know but a decent league position and a cup run might just see that happen. 

Of course, a number of us could simply choose to be located in the famy stand.

A adult taking his 2 kids last Saturday to the main or west stand would have paid £34.  (£28 in the family stand)

A adult taking his 2 kids this Sunday to the main or west stand will pay £61 and it is on the telly.

No encouragement for any fan if not a season ticket holder. 

Family club my arse    :moony2
