  1. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    I am now unsure about that. I was sure I read that he left along with some other scouts but cannot find the source. At least Gus can check out any player a manager wants to see if he is any good. We gave Stubbs free reign and backed him to the hilt but he brought in 10 players most of whom are clearly not up to the task. Hopefully Gus can prevent that happening again.

    And six central defenders. We signing them until we get one that works.

    We recently lost our chief scout partly because Stubbs ignored him, and we lost out on signings identified by JR because we had no manager. A Technical Director can fulfill both of those functions.
  4. Off The Ball - Is it good?

    Always tune in as it’s the only decent program on the tranny. Tam could be replaced though - always interrupting and repetative and has a dire taste of music.
  5. Davie Provan is also defending his old mate. There are many, many stories about how toxic Stubbs was for the Club but it would be libel to repeat them. f**k you Stubbs and your ignorant cronies.

    I have never had anyone on ignore nor ever want to chase anyone off a site (well, maybe a couple like the one above) but it gets to the stage where you completely skim over some posters as you know there will be 'facts' that are not true which completely negates anything useful they have to say. It doesn't take long to take a deep breath and check something or read what you have written before you post.

    Also the most inaccurate poster on P&B. Never checks anything he claims as a fact before pressing Return.

    I don’t think I would be using a management company where ‘you’re shite’ and ‘find a new job’ are used as motivational techniques.

    Reckon it was deliberate from AS. Get rid of as many of a league winning team as he could. Sign shite. Alienate everyone. Sign shite. Don’t lalk to the players or directors. Sign Darren Jackson. Tell some of our best players to find new clubs. Total carnage and a year’s wages for 12 weeks work. Smart move.

    I do not believe the players 'are not putting in a shift'. I think frustration is pissing them off like we all get frustrated at work and pissed off. Team-work is about man management and if you have no respect for the man in charge and no togetherness in the squad - and considering he has told at least 5 of the current squad they can find a new club - then it is no surprise that there is no togetherness. Further frustration comes from situations like a high ball coming into the box and an experienced midfielder expects his defender to win the ball so moves into a position to charge forward on the upfield header only for the defender to completely miss the ball so the midfielder has to retreat to help out. Experienced players like McGinn expect people to do a job and there are far too many new and inexperienced players he is having to cover for so that his own game suffers. The experienced players are being let down by trying to do their job as well as cover for the inexperience that surrounds them.

    £75K is the most SMFC have spent on a player in decades. Spending that amount of money in our first year in the Premiership should be for a good player that can walk straight into the team. This is about survival at the moment not long term projects. Heaton was terrible against a part-time amateur of Queens Park but allegedly OK against a young Championship U20 team. But we are in the Premiership and need players now or we won't be there for long. No offence to Heaton as he may turn out OK but he is not what we need just now.

    Shite, just shite. Relegation material.

    I too feel sorry for every single player Stubbs signed - none knew what they were letting themselves in for. I also feel sorry for last season’s squad who were looking forward to the new season but many are now alienated by the manager. An omnishambles that could so easily have been avoided. The next guy will have his work cut out.

    He has already signed 11 players and only Coulson (not at full back), Willock and possibly Jones look like they are good enough for the Premiership. And he has already lost the support of the majority of last years ‘s squad by telling 5 of them they can leave. We wont be signing 3 decent players today but it would do little to improve the shambles.
  15. Not exactly. We stand about like a bunch of strangers in a foreign land. Play your normal game and it will be impossible not to win convincingly.
