The shinier, improved St. Mirren FC 2017/18 Thread

Div on the P&B FB suggesting Morgan has signed for Celtic. Anyone any clue how much? Seems like a waste if it's not breaching £500k (after clauses and all that)

He's out of contract in the summer and he's only been with us since he was 16. Think if he was to leave on a free, a category 1 club would still have to pay a significant enough development fee but nothing near his true value. I'd imagine, it's probably about £300k-£400k and we'll have him back for the remainder of the season.

See Stephane Bahoken is ripping up Ligue 1. Scored a historic winner for Strasbourg against PSG last Saturday and again tonight away to Bordeaux. 

This is a guy who without irony, is mentioned in some circles as amongst the worst players to show up at the club in the last 2 decades. He played 5 games, missed about 4 sitters, went home in a huff, got sent back over by his dad and spent the rest of his time saying he's going to get fitter. 

Now, he's banging in winners against the most expensive squad ever assembled and probably playing his way into World Cup reckoning for Cameroon, who his dad played for in Spain 82.

Mental days.

Love things like this. Mahrez and Bahoken, struggle to think of many other Scottish clubs who'll have that calibre of "reject".

£10m Aaron Mooy as well.

Jesus :lol: A few of our fans still berate the club for releasing Marcus Maddison, who is now pretty highly rated down South, God knows how they'd react if we'd had those three

Was Bahoken not the 'one we were waiting for' according to Danny Lennon?

He was. Believe he made his debut against Partick Thistle where he missed a one on one with the keeper. If memory serves, he also had a very decent half chance presented towards the end of the half where he tripped over the ball. He was hooked at half time. 

Edited: I thought he rounded the keeper and tripped. He didn't as it surely word have made the highlights.

To be fair, Mooy scored a glorious Xmas eve winner in our last ever home game against Rangers before they died.

Other than that though, the running joke was that he spent so much time on our fabled warm up bikes as an unused sub,  he was actually powering the floodlights.

I think Mooy pretty much admits himself though that he wasn't ready for his first go at British football (think we signed him from Bolton where he'd also failed to live up to his initial potential) and that he needed to go back to Australia to get his head together and mature a bit. You could see he was a player when he was at us, but it just never worked out.

Bahoken though looked like he'd never seen a football before. Fair play to him.

Of course, he won't be playing his way into Cameroon world cup squads as they didn't qualify. :lol:

Stupid me!

Sounds like we rode our luck today, but the up and the down of it is a good 3 points.  Need to keep this up till the big game on the 29th.

 

Then do to United what they did to us last time...

I'd rather we did to united what we did to them the last time we played them at home.

We made them look like a pub team that day.

Agreed.  But push comes to shove I'd be quite happy to ride our luck and scab a lucky victory if we finished the year top of the league.  

All about getting back up a league.  Ideally without being part of the circus of the play offs.

Depending on who the holding midfielder is, I'd class that as very decent business.
