  1. But that situation won’t arise.
  2. There is no vacancy at the moment but we'll keep your suggestion in mind .....
  3. Poor try. Jack isn't even in Barnsley's top 3 candidates according to this report .... http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2018/02/14/report-paul-harsley-emerges-as-front-runner-for-barnsley-manager/
  4. Money isn't everything in life. Not to everyone at any rate. Plenty of people have refused more lucrative jobs for any number of reasons. And taken poorer paid jobs over greater paid. The best job I ever had was also one of the poorest paid I ever had (DJ in Spain). There are pluses and minuses in every decision and money plays its part. There is also family, opportunity and loyalty. Derek McInnes (twice) is an example. Jack has many young players who have relied on him and he has attracted players to St Mirren that would not be there if it wasn't for him personally - would he abandon them? He has won nothing in his career so far so would he give up an amazing turnround from relegation certainties to Championship winners with only 12 games left? If he doesn't take Barnsley will there be no more offers? I think there will be. There is not much time and no window at Barnsley to help save them. If he doesn't and gets bumped he will get another job but with a tarnished reputation. If he stays in Paisley and wins the League his reputation is upheld and his stock rises. And he can maybe have a better opportunity in better circumstances at the start of a new season or transfer window than with only a few months to go with his hands tied to a squad he didn't choose. Difficult decision if he has to make one but I would not assume he will automatically take it if offered. Just like the Dundee offer I think Jack will reject it and enhance his reputation a bit longer attracting better opportunities. He will go and some point but with only 3 months to save a club from relegation is not the best set of circumstances.
  5. League Leaders V QOS

    Game was won at half-time. No point in busting a gut in the second half as we have 12 important games coming up. Good to see another aspect of our play in containment. And good to gives our new players a wee bit of game time. We still had some classy moves in the second half but I was happy to just play it out with ease.
  6. Top of the League and You're No

    The decorators have made a great job - the new black and white decor is superb. Hope no-one makes a mess when we have our party

    Sorry. We just keep winning. But best luck next week at Aberdeen - hope you can take them back to Tannadice for a replay.

    Aye that was a defining moment but I only mentioned these last two Away games as we have not played at Home in 4 weeks and some Buddies who don't travel, may have lost sight of that winning mentality going by comments on B&WArmy.

    Don’t worry. I’ll be #smugasfuck when the time comes.
  10. Dundee United 2017/2018

    No smugness involved. In football terms a 'six pointer' refers to two teams playing each other and tomorrow we are not. Only 3 points up for grabs for both teams tomorrow so only a 3 point difference, at maximum, either way. I do think we will win the League but am not smug about it. Yet.

    Anyone who was at Dumbarton or Dunfermline will know that this team is in a winning mentality and every player will have to play at their best as either Stephen McGinn will give them the hair-drier treatment or someone decent from the bench can replace them. Tough game but home win.
  12. Dundee United 2017/2018

    Yes, it could be 14 tomorrow. I'm going along to see the Buds so I will enjoy my day out. Hope you enjoy yours up at Inverness.
  13. Dundee United 2017/2018

    Stop digging. We have 11 points more than Utd. Say we get beat and Utd win - what is our lead now?
  14. Dundee United 2017/2018

    That would be impossible tomorrow.
  15. McGinn will knock it out of him. At Dunfermline he was in the face of Davis, L Smith and McShane in the opening 10 minutes. Our Stephen takes no prisoners and wont suffer slackers.
