Family Stand


Recommended Posts


On the 24/10/21 the home attendance against Rangers was 6100 on the 10/4/21 it was 6583.

Saturday attendance was 6358. I don't see that we are losing money by not having them in two stands. In fact I think being unbeaten at home and performances against the old firm are helping us gain fans. 

We are selling a minimum of 1000 tickets a season more than we did in corresponding fixtures outside the old firm . 

I would never let a Celtic fan in to the SMISA again after that vile display of sectarian bile they displayed to disgrace Scottish football.

The additional 1000 are not all sales as they include many free and at reduced price.

We have increased the number of tickets for schools and groups, where we are trying to gain future buds.

When they were given both ends the noise they created was loud as One end would try and out sing the other end and it worked,it was like football song tennis You couldn’t hear yourself think when they were in full flow I can’t believe any St Mirren fan wants to listen to that at a home game

It’s so much better with only one stand 👏👏👏


 

Well we all know of 1 fan that does want to listen.

If anybody wants to listen to that they are not a Saints fan, the clown who does clearly supports the other side...

Utter bollocks, first off no one ‘wants’ to listen to it. It’s the wrong terminology. Just because people have a view we should be maximising our income, doesn’t mean they aren’t St Mirren fans. What an arrogant claim of superiority.

What sectarian bile? The Sellick fans were like church mice.

I’m assuming he meant the “If you hate the royal family clap your hands” routine.

I’m not sure that qualifies as sectarian mind you. Certainly unnecessary and certainly undignified, but sectarian? I don’t think so.

Anti Royal but not sectarian I actually thought it was very clever what they did

Sadly I have to agree I thought the same, but I still think it was pretty low to use a moment of commemoration to the death of any person to make a political statement against that person. Especially to do it in a way clearly designed to be “funny”. I mean it’s not like they weren’t going to spend the next 90 minutes going on about how much they hate the royal family anyway. 
I would place myself somewhere in between ambivalent and anti monarchy but even I thought that was pretty tasteless.

To repeat though, not sectarian.

I read it as anti-royalty, not personal abuse.  
 

So much of the carnival surrounding her death (or any of the ordinary, commonplace events involving that clan… weddings, births, car accidents) are used  to confirm the privileged class structure of the UK.

it’ll all be on show next summer when her eldest son has his glitzy party.

They may not be all monetary sales or at the same price the blue and green were paying, though we are now building up our fan base and improving on the park and the match day experience, so that people will come back again and again. At  a young age, a lot of kids are still unsure who they support if they are not regularly seeing 'their team' play in the flesh. 

Imagine you were a young kid from Paisley or surrounding areas who has been influenced by either side of the green or blue, whether it be through family or being outnumbered at school, though turn up at these games and see us competing and winning these games, instead of being cannon fodder in a hostile environment.

Before the game there was speculation as to what the Sellick fans would do during the "minutes silence". My plan was to stand with my hands in my pockets.

As a protest, the banner and the chant was genius "Hate" is an absolute and as such I don't hate the royal family but I certainly detest them. Many among you might cite pedantry but I don't give a fuck, in this day and age a civilised society shouldn't have an unelected head of state, and his relatives, drawing tax payers money.

Worse still is that unelected head of state has constitutional powers which, although not exercised in decades, still sit in statute.

I hope Charles goes the way of his predecessor.

Also the Bonby Sands flag, the pro IRA chants and the group I sit with all clocked it was 40 minutes till they mentioned Celtic in any song.

Right but all of those other things you mention are sadly commonplace at these games. 
I thought you were citing something peculiar to this particular game.

Not that it matters but isn’t detest an even stronger verb in this context than hate?

Also wouldn’t it be better to say you hate or detest the existence of a royal family. Unless of course you really do detest the individuals involved. In which case fair enough.

Surprised at reading this, I believe the last time I seen you, you were singing God Save The Queen.

Some things are more important than maximising income

We should be concentrating on minimising sectarianism and hatred and a reduced income is worth it for that 

I’d go further and give the OF zero stands

The fact that you are happy to profit from sectarianism and hatred is shameful
