Why has the director of football failed to impress some fans?

I never suggested it was a plan or a concept. [and it’s certainly not your/st Lucifer's speciality - an assumption).

it was the reality that St Mirren (or any other normal club) have to play in a buyer’s market, where players have a window of choice and they don’t need to know-tow to the panic that your imagination has created.

the players may have been available, but the precise point is that they were playing that availability for their own best purposes.

 

I’m glad their choices coincided eventually with Saints.  The players market is a reality that needn’t fit with your assumptions.

Again I think you are not getting it as signing four players the day befire your first league game is the very definition of PANIC..!

why have other clubs in our league and below, who dont have the luxury/added cost of a DoF, been able to do the bulk of their business weeks ago? Did they panic and make signings over a number of weeks, and in advance of their competitive games?

i hope they can get us a result or at least hopeful performance today. If not then a real panic will ensue.

I do get the concept of panic.

it exists and is a very real thing for those prone to suffering (and presumably enjoying) the gut-churning, fraught sensations they seem to self-generate.

i have been concerned that Saints appeared short on numbers, but was placated to hear McG AND JG say they had players in mind and they hoped the deals they’d worked would be concluded soon.  They were.

So people like yourself who enjoyed and hoped to generate mass panic can now relax like the rest of us and enjoy another roller-coaster season!

(if, like your good self + and st lucifer, I were to make assumptions then I’d AssumeSaints made offers to various players with deadlines of this week for acceptance.  The players accepted.  All is good.)

 

 

i was tempted to say All is Goodie, but refrained....  :)

What is it with you guys?
Seriously. Can Gus do no wrong in your eyes? If we do sign someone it's all down to your hero. If we don't sign someone it's all down to bad agents or greedy footballers. There has only been ONE official mention of Gus being remotely involved in a signing and even that was qualified by the manager saying he consulted with people he trusted first. IF he has had a hand in the new signings then WHY is it that we are so far behind other clubs without a DoF? They haven't had the same problem dealing with bad agents or greedy players.
No matter how you look at it, it still looks like the position is an unnecessary expenditure for a club our size. That money could have paid for one, or possibly two new signings.
As I don't know everything Gus does wither it be good or bad, I believe I covered that with the sentence where we win some and lose some.

The signing of new players started about 5 weeks ago and no doubt we all would have wanted the best players signed then what do you suggest we do that we don't do now?

Glad you admitted you don't know his salary, so guessing how many additional players we could afford if you were to subtract agent fees or other folk in the club's who have different titles (i.e. head of football operations) then is a moot point.

I know I've been employed a couple of times because of who I knew, but it was because they knew I was capable to do the job and I know I wouldn't have been offered the job if they thought they could employ someone better. Likewise GLS believed Gus could do the job he's employed to do and more importantly trusts him.

Apparently that's a new rule for contributing on a public discussion forum!

Or so you told me.

Hypocrisy yet again!

Not at all, you can comment all you want, never said you couldn’t (so you are wrong yet again) only pointing out you were the one going out your way to keep that chat going. It was done. I am only responding to you to point out where you’re wrong. :rolleyes:

No. I totally agree. You are fishing. Pity nobody is biting.

PS... Your fishing post earlier was an all time low even for a master baiter like you!

No fishing, you thinking I am is testament to how negative this website is.

Pass marks for all new signings today. If that continues, well done Gus & right approach. 

Unfortunately I couldn’t make the game yesterday, but by all accounts it was a good performance despite the result. 

Hopefully this put an end to all the infighting about Gus and we can get back to supporting the best team in Scotland COYS

No chance the infighting will stop, it’s not just the Gus post it’s just about every topic

Certainly looks like we have got a decent quality of player in, just a shame it couldn't have been done in time to prepare properly for the season. Glad to see the new guys on 2 year deals, hopefully next season will be an easier summer!

Quality doesn't come so easily. Particularly in our case.

But you did reply didn’t you? :rolleyes:

no fishing, if that’s a sign of things to come the recruitment will have been a success. How negative to think any comment that tries to be positive about our club is fishing!

Twit.
Your other thread... Which I have not responded to... was a very poor fishing attempt.

Ironic that I made one post a few days ago, and after 15 hours you posted that I was just keeping an argument going!

Now you wait over 20 hours to make a pointless statement that serves no purpose other than to revive an argument that could have been left at that.

Your hypocrisy knows no bounds!

So you don’t respond on the actual thread, come on another one & start responding about that thread... is that a win for you? :lol:

I was responding to your post as I’m doing now. Me not sitting in a blind rage ready to respond to all your messages within 15 seconds (what you seem to do with mine) doesn’t change facts you’re continually desperate to chase me all over BAWA
