As if it’s up to me to explain emoji28.png
We lost 1-0 to a team above us in the league and we were denied a stonewall penalty. That’s football.
I’m sure we can all agree that this is the best Saints team in the history of this website.
Just need to enjoy it while we can.

 

A hilarious statement at the time, not looking any better today.

Just a bit silly. 

This season (thus far) has given us great highs and some pretty bad lows,  as is the St Mirren way.

All things considered In these strange times, this season has been better than most in recent history, but probably not the best team in the history of the website. 

We'll bounce back.

A short summary of our achievements under Jim Goodwin and Lee Sharp this season (so far):
First victory at Parkhead since 1990
First ever victory against The Rangers (and remain the only Scottish team to beat them this season) and as a result our first semi final since 2013
Longest unbeaten run in the top flight since 1968
First win at Tannadice since 2013 and in the same game our biggest away win in the top flight since 1984
First Scottish Cup Semi Final since 2009
First time we have made both national semi finals in one season since 1982
Already matched our best top flight points tally since the 80’s, and there’s three games to go
All of this achieved despite unprecedented off field issues and a ridiculous fixture pile up in February. In September we were signing goalies on the morning of games and other such madness.
It’s been far from perfect (is it ever?). But, What. A. Season. What. A. Manager.
The doubters have certainly been proven wrong. Hard to believe there was a fairly sizeable ‘Goodwin out’ brigade among our support in September and October. Credit to Gordon Scott for not listening to them. Can’t wait to see how the rest of it pans out, gutted we won’t be there.

Are you sure about that 3rd sentence.? I am sure I remember another scottish team popping Rangers out a cup quite recently.

Yes. Winning a penalty shoot does not constitute winning a game IMO.

It shows what can be done when a manager is handed one of the biggest budgets in our history.

Heard that, and it amazed me. In the early 90’s we were regularly buying players for six figures. We paid £400k for Stickroth. I’m not sure what Jim’s budget is, but I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t be able to spend that amount on a single player.

You win the tie but the match is a draw. Would only be comparable if all of Rangers draws this season - there’s been several - went to penalty shoot outs.
Div tweeted yesterday that we hadn’t won at Rugby Park since 2013, which was and is correct. We have won two penalty shoot outs since then right enough, League Cup Group Stage 2018 and yesterday.

TC that doesn't make sense, you can draw in the league but a Cup Game is decided ,and penalties, if required, determines who WINS the tie

In the grand scheme of things just think of the term WINNERS, I am sure Killie Fans are not thinking they drew last night

The banks used to be pretty generous then.  We ended up selling Love Street to pay our debts. 

So we won't, I'm sure, be repeating that.

Yes I agree, we won the tie but not the match.

Update:
Best points tally in a top flight season since the 80’s
With one game to spare!
Or were there only 36 games in a season back then and we've actually played a game more.

Also, prior to 1994 (I think) it was only 2 points for a win, so not really directly comparable.
