St.Ricky

Albion Rovers v St Mirren

Recommended Posts


Our league cup hopes were buggered in the first 45 minutes at home to Dunfermline. The remaining 3.5 ties only confirmed to everyone (including our management) that our threadbare squad was even worse than we could have feared.
It must now be obvious to them that an influx of quality players is essential before we start the league campaign at Easter Road. Forget waiting until the closing hours of the January transfer window, we need action now !! Where will the goals come from otherwise ? And the fact that we didn't actually concede any goals in those 3.5 ties is irrelevant because we obviously need some more experienced defenders as well. Let's hope that Goody is being extremely vocal in his exchanges with GS, TF and GMac !!!
If we don't strengthen the squad urgently, and with quality, then I really do fear what the results against Hibs, Aberdeen and Rangers will do for morale at the Club, let alone the players who play in rose matches.
Get the finger out. NOW !

I told you that blaming the Tories wasn't the way to go and that you had to and could do it yourself. :D

Nice one!

Was that discussion really 2 years ago?

No, I only joined the forum in April last year, originally trying to find out information on trophy day to plan my journey north :lol:

I was probably referencing the position I had been in, and the fact that I still have to work 7 days a week.

That is some line up

A centre mid at RB
A centre mid at LB
A RB at Centre Half
Jack Baird

4 central midfielders

2 forwards

A bench consisting of 4 teenagers and a sub goalie

Absolutely shambolic state.

Merely lulling the opposition into a false sense of security. Surely this (scarcely believable) team will manage to score and be good enough to win tonight.

Sadly, despite almost idyllic weather, they werent. Partly again down to some great saves by the opposition but mainly due to our own failings.

Stop bloody whining. The competition format is great and gives smaller teams a fighting chance of an upset.

It's up to teams like ours to show we want to win more.

The format is fine.

Oaky, I’m not whining. I just don’t agree with you and I’ve stated why. You don’t agree and that’s fine. I’ll refrain from saying stop whining about me whining, because that would be as silly as you saying I’m whining.

Please respect my authoritaaah opinion.

Dont think anyone will take away the joy from smaller clubs we all respect them. We all know our place in the food chain in the premiership.  Fact is we are I'll prepaid for the season starting which is very concerning.  Romours regarding we are skint will only grow unless quality come in concern will rightly grow.  Some can brush it off others take their football seriously.  Have been a regular since 1967 been in nearly every ground in Scotland and followed Saints 4 times to Europe. Have kept the season ticket going for years many years where could attend 7 games the whole season at most to support the club. What Stuart Gilmour and that board done was above the call of duty. Now I'm regretting taking out another season ticket will hardly make home games again due to work. For the this moment looks like mismanagement . Seen written we have been through 90 players since Gordon took over power in 3 years. Manager after manager is costing the club money we cant afford.  I wont give up SMISA or buddie vision including the season ticket it is a considerable cost, ofh aye the 1877 club also. Not a tantrum maybe shite English and bad spelling so feel free to have a swipe.  Really hope I'm wrong, I really do to me St Mirren look mismanaged at this time. SMISA I will keep on believe our club should be in safe hands. One Question though why is the SMISA representative on the board not communicate with fans rather that what looks and reads like a political prepared statement. The chosen one was voted in by the fans paying a monthly subscription for 10 years. If something is not right / or right  speak to the members give proper feedback. As I write will not give up SMISA but proper feed back is hugely lacking. Speak to members if it was not for members Y.O.U would not be there. SMISA needs to have members meeting. Rant over.

Phew. Glad that pesky League Cup is out of the way, now we can look forward to real football success.

I know you were at EK on Saturday. Did you notice that there were 15 fouls against us by EK and 22 by Albion Rovers. Well above the fouls count in other games played tonight. 22 Shots at goal on Satutday, 9 on target. 17 Shots on goal tonight 7 on target. Good petgprmances by opposing keepers in both games. Are we too soft pethaps?

Surprised nobody has mentioned the gesture from one of the players towards GLS, GM and TF.

Surprised nobody wrote that the ref had to delay kick off until the last of the St Mirren party crossed the pitch with the teams lined up for the second game in a row. Is this why we are not winning these games? Is it coincidence? Does it matter?

Yet another poor game tonight, could have played all night and not scored. Scrappy, unimaginative stuff. Plus Albion Rovers we’re charging £1 for a cup of tap water!!! Then a huge tailback going home on the M8 (looked like a really bad accident) 

With regards to moving forward, Flynn, Baird, both Mcginns, Mullen, Mckenzie, magenis and the two new signings and keepers should stay as part of the squad, the rest should go out on loan. We need 6-7 quality signings to come in during this window.
