  1. Aye, true. The best thing for us is that other young players will see that if you come to Saints, you'll get your chance in our team, get your chance in the national age groups, and get your big move.
  2. OK, cheers guys, thanks for clarifying.
  3. I guess Lewis is this season's official Hot Property. It's inevitable after the national team's latest (in)glorious failure that people want to start to look at what's coming through next in terms of young players, and Morgan fits the bill. People were paying attention anyway, but Brendan Rodgers' comments have pretty much doubled his quoted value. Interest from proper teams down south - Blues and Forest - won't do us any harm either. We're now in the incredible position of teams potentially being prepared to pay huge amounts (huge for us), and potentially even loan him back to the end of the season, just so they can have him in the summer. I can't remember the last time there was this much genuine interest in a Saints player - and when you consider we've lost McLean and McGinn in recent years, that's really surprising.
  4. Not really any redeeming features, but maybe some excuses? We were an utter basket case of a club. Board wanted out and we were completely rudderless. It was probably too big a job for Murray at that time. Even as he was appointed, we were being warned that Jack Ross was the brains behind the success at Dumbarton. I think we can see that was probably the case. That said, I'd like to think he has something to offer full time football, and maybe a development role at a big club* would be beneficial for everyone involved. * or Dundee! Heyoooooooo!
  5. I'd not seen this before - five Record journos have to pick their best XI from Scottish football, but only one player allowed from each club. Lewis Morgan makes four of the five teams. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/best-scottish-football-xi-just-11330289
  6. Falkirk v St Mirren

    I dunno, you could argue there might be a link there. January - fine February - fine March - fine April - fine May - fine June - holiday July - shite August - shite September - shite October - shite Can anybody spot the correlation?!
  7. Falkirk v St Mirren

    If that's true, re personal issues, then I absolutely hope he gets over it, just as I would if we had a player who was struggling in that way. I'm sure it'll be fine: Hartley always struck me as a wonderful man-manager, the kind of guy who could put an arm round the shoulder of a struggling player and guide him to find his confidence and reach new heights...
  8. Falkirk v St Mirren

    Is that a solid rumour, or just a quick glance at the league table and goalscorers' chart?
  9. Falkirk v St Mirren

    Will Rory Loy (0/12) be playing? Will be interesting to get a direct comparison between him and Gavin Reilly (10/16). I will never allow myself to forget how wrong I was about those two signings in the summer.
  10. Falkirk v St Mirren

    Can it be both inevitable, and your opinion? I think 'inevitable' is unequivocal.
  11. Falkirk v St Mirren

    Fair. I'm still tempted to file the result at Cappielow under 'anomaly', given the score was still 1-1 when we gave away a second penalty and had a man sent off. But yes, we have shipped too many goals and we need to tighten up.
  12. Top of the League and You're No

    Are you actually trying to turn this into a St Mirren Premiership Relegation Express thread? That is some impressive playing of the long game
  13. Falkirk v St Mirren

    Shull, you're making Finch Road look mellow here. I think this'll be a 1-1 draw.
  14. Saints v Sons

    He's also basically competing with strikers who've scored about 15 goals between them already this season. It's a good problem to have. What I will say is, whether Jack's selections up front have been right or wrong (and we're three points clear at the top, so I'd go for the former), and whether or not JR and JS have issues between them, they both seem capable of being professional and doing what's best for the club. Ross doesn't seem to be one of those managers that's so stubborn he won't give a performing player a chance when the time is right.
  15. Falkirk v St Mirren

    It's a bee metaphor. Probably.
