  1. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    If you are wondering about our Colt result, 2-1 to us. We were took the lead but Killie drew level either by or just past half time, but we ran out winners in the end.

    I don't think that anyone is not giving Stubbs a chance, but I see no issue about questioning his signings. It's not like he is somehow insulated from criticism. Ross, Rae, Murray, Craig, etc, etc had their signings and play style scrutinised. Willock has been a good addition, Coulson has been a good addition (albeit he does not seem a natural left back) and Kpekawa will improve with game time. The rest though have been a bit of a miss. Can't comment about Brock Madsen although he looked like he could be a handful we'll just need to wait and see if he is. In regard to Jones, he looks like he has pedigree but it's a gamble. The level of that gamble depends on what Stubbs wants him to do. If he's cover for the defence and midfield, then cool, if he's here to replace McGinn as a holding midfielder then you are left with a lot of players all competing for the central midfield. It seems Stubbs sees Flynn as more central (and to be fair he no longer has the pace to be an out and out winger) and in his defence each time he's come off the bench he's made an impact. Magennis is the rising star and while it's a little unfair to assume he'll continue on improving like McGinn, Mallan, McLean and the like, I think we all expect fairly big things from him. I think most expect McShane to leave even though he got game time against Rangers, but by the sounds of it that might be a swap for Polworth. I'd say that's a decent deal if it can be done, but it does nothing to address midfield congestion. The solution is to sell or loan, I presume. Unless with the reserve league making a come back we are looking to get game time from that. MacPherson played well against Killie and I'd like to maybe see him get a 6 month loan in a lower league to keep him playing, and Kellerman I have no idea about as I've seen little of him and what I say didn't really impress me. Maybe he just needs a run in a team, so again a possible loan?

    This is a fucking mess. You have absolutely shat yourself here. Personal digs, and huge glaring errors do not warrant a reply.

    I never stated he was dropping McGinn, follow the comment chain and you'll see that was someone else. Coulson is not a left back. He may have been signed as one, but he isn't one - or at least he is uncomfortable playing there, and finally it's all fine and well claiming we pressed in order to get the goal but the simple truth is if the keeper hadn't tried to be smart then the ball would have been cleared and Flynn wouldn't have had time to pop it across the goal to Mullen. We were lucky. Especially so considering Moussa made a pig's ear of the penalty. Other than that, the post is fine.. I've said all along that I'm broadly supportive of Stubbs, he wasn't my first choice but he also isn't the worst. He's thankfully avoided bringing in Stokes, which to me is a bit of a red line, but there is not a Saints fan who would say it's been a "successful" transfer window so far. The window is of course still open so we'll just have to wait and see.
  5. Change my mind...

    I have moved on, if I hadn't I'd be expecting my manager to complain that the whole of Scottish football is against my team and have been for years. That's the epitome of "not moving on". As for losing, I've got no issue with it, if anything I think we got lucky with just a 2-0.

    Sure thing bud, because Rangers have only just become a negative force since Sunday.

    There will always be knicker wetters, as there are happy clappers. Now I've been broadly supportive of him but of the purchases three are not ready for this level (Heaton, Cooke and King), one is playing out of position (Coulson) and the other is short of match fitness (Kpekawa). We've failed to win against much lower league opposition in Spartans and Queens Park and got extremely lucky against Dundee. As I say I've been supportive, but if you wanted to make a case for the knicker wetters you could do so pretty easily. If you add in dropping McGinn, and we don't know for sure that's in his plans, then he's simply causing himself problems rather than being unfairly targeted.
  8. Brown on Naismith - compliance officer?

    Is that you agreeing with the Morelos' red? Because that's the only player I can see that we've faced that should have been banned.
  9. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Tell you what, if he drops McGinn he'd better hope the results go for him as I can't imagine the support will happy. For me he's been our most consistent player over the last 18 months and you can talk all you want about Morgan, Smith or Reilly but the bottom line for me is that without him in that team, we wouldn't have got promoted.

    It's not worth arguing over, but I wouldn't say Flynn or Kirkpatrick are central players, although I'm sure both can play there. I doubt Erhahon is getting anywhere near the team, Stubbs pretty much said so himself on Sportsound.
  11. Brown on Naismith - compliance officer?

    The first one is a nothing incident, the second could merit some attention but it was immediately followed by Morelos kicking out. Your argument has to rely on the ref stopping the game for the first time McKenna shoulders Morelos, which not a single person has said was an offence. The second, sure, that could be debated, but not the first.

    McShane will get punted, which is a bit of a shame (ha! a McShame!) seeing as he did very little wrong. MacPherson or Kellerman out on loan perhaps? There's very little left to trim there.

    Has anyone else tried that Lotus spread? It's really nice, and tastes exactly like the biscuits, not moreish but nice none the less. You get it from B&M.

    Careful there elvis, he might actually turn out to be decent for this level. I'm sure you wouldn't want to risk supporting the team with a positive statement, now would you?

    If I've followed the relevant bread crumb trail then I believe Ricardo Bagadur is the player we have on trial. 22, defender, Croatian, spent pretty much his entire career on loan with (if Wikipedia is correct) his most productive spell coming during his time at Salerno quite some distance down the leagues in Italy. Again according to Wiki, he's played no competitive games since.
