  1. Jam Tarts v The Buddies

    Green shoots.
  2. The Three Team Mini-League

    Only thing in our favour (and it's not really a thing) is that if we do manage to catch and overtake someone, we'll at least be going into the playoff with some momentum. But really, as much as we were not all that bad today, I think it's us for 12th and Accies for 11th.
  3. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    Didn't think we were that bad, all things considered. Obviously under a lot of pressure at the end but we still carried a bit of a threat. Jackson could well have put us 3-1 up with his shot from the tight angle.
  4. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    Yeah, looked bad. Hope he's ok.
  5. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    Our line-up. 5-4-1. Midfield of McPherson (promising but young) and Lyons (yer man with the glasses). Presumably Kyle M and Flynn wide. Glad to see McAllister start, though.
  6. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    Was gonna say 'stranger things have happened', but I've checked and they haven't. Aberdeen -1.5 at evens looks like the value bet here to me. Edit: this thread is dead Reflects the Forgone Conclusion-ness of the game, tbh.
  7. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Yeah, I think you'd put them mid-low Premiership level, based on attendances alone.

    Kenny McLean didn't even get on the park that day Shows how far we've fallen.

    Really, that's the rub. The best squads we've assembled in a very long time came in 2011-3 (IMO). On paper it should have been challenging for the top six. We didn't even vaguely threaten to do so. But still, when you've seen the club pull together genuinely entertaining squads such as that one, it can be galling to see, as @Torfason said, a procession of utter jobbers stealing a wage. What's worrying is that we stumbled across a bit of magic, in Jack Ross, Lewis Morgan, Stephen McGinn, Gavin Reilly, Cammy Smith and Harry Davis all clicking at the same time in the second tier, but we seem to have no recipe to recreate that magic. You can start to wonder if it was a fluke. I'm about as realistic and as pragmatic a fan as you'll find - I know that our natural place in Scottish football is floating somewhere from 10th-16th, with occasional peaks above that and occasional troughs below. I know that 2011-13 squad with Thommo, Teale, Goodwin, etc, was built on the foundations of several years in the top flight, and a couple of good cup runs (semi & final in 09 & 10 respectively), not to mention the incredible good fortune of Stevie Thompson actually being a St Mirren fan. But still, as you say, it's tough to watch other teams having that success, and creating those memories. What Livi have done this season (and over the past few years, since League One) is incredible. In Saints' defence, I'd say they're embarrassing a lot more teams than just us - right the way down the Championship.

    Nah, all joking aside, I really can't see you getting caught by three of the sides below you. As much as I'd like to see Alloa staying up, for Jim, I can't see it now. That said, a Raith-Dunfermline playoff final would be full of #scenes.

    In all seriousness, I could be tempted. I'm about as non-knee-jerky as it's possible to be, so will see how this pans out. Bear in mind that if we go down, there'll be little point selling W7 to away fans as there won't be any games that require it. Or do you mean only W7 to be used by them?
  12. Aberdeen v St Mirren

    Our entire squad are here on fucking work experience.
  13. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Yep. Think we'll be seeing you again next season. Yeah, certainly a strange decision, but you'd like to think a fan being stretchered out of a ground would be basically safe no matter which part of the ground it was happening in.
  14. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Certainly doesn't look good. Something feels wrong at the club at the moment (aside from the obvious). Incredible how quickly things can change, when you consider where we were last year, especially with the buzz around the club, the support, the manager, etc.
  15. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    Three key players were away - Reilly, Morgan and Davis. We had some players on contracts that just weren't good enough - some frankly baffling extensions were handed out. Stubbs pissed off the rest (Smith, McGinn), and bought complete duds in, all bar one of whom have been booted. The twist in the tale is that Stubbs was pretty much correct about some of the players. Doesn't make him any less of a c**t though
