    The obligatory picture of Jackson holding up a club scarf is on the official site now. No pressure son, just a minor miracle required

    I probably feel most sorry for the manager at this point. He interviewed for a very good job in the summer and got a poisoned chalice a few week later. Stubbs has signed a mixture of duds and players who were no where near fit enough for this level and now someone else has to try and shape them into some sort of a team. January will give Oran a chance to get some players in but in terms of finances unless he can move a lot of players out, his hands are tied. This mess will take a couple of transfer windows to fix and by that time we will likely be back in the Championship. I just hope Oran is given the time and support to do that.
  4. I would love to think I picked St Mirren but they picked me. I flew 11 hours home to watch us chuck away a cup final to 9 men and when we got to the final again I didn't hesitate to fly home again. Your team is your team whether they are pish or not and as a supporter of a provincial club I always think the wins mean more to us than the successful clubs.

    I think GS and TF simply don't have enough time to oversee the footballing aspect of the club and as such things got away from them with the last manager. Gus is someone who is very experienced in Scottish football and has the complete trust of the Chairman so I think he will be a really good resource for both the manager and the Chairman. His role will be very much in the background.

    4 straight defeats and a couple of games over by HT kind of breeds that kind of reaction by any team. Watching us against Livi and Hearts we were bloody awful so a point at home to Celtic hopefully gives them a bit of confidence. Plus having seen my team throw away a cup final to 9 men, we’ll take our point

    Absolutely this. If only he could..............
  8. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45413391 Only in Scottish football could you get someone shoehorning Brendan into a discussion about St Mirren It didn’t even fit the conversation
  9. Right up there with his “fur a wid walk five hundred miles” to be Scotland manager comments?

    He apparently said the same at the Rotherham interview and didn’t get any Everton players there either. The thing is even if he could, the physical aspect of Scottish football means these lads struggle anyway. In development football results are not that important and players tend to be less likely to go through you in a tackle, contrast that to our situation where every point is important and most sides are very physical. He might have got away with one or two like that but to make that his signing policy was mental.

    Stubbs really doesn’t seem to know what he is doing and looks grossly out of his depth, add to that Jackson is a p***k who doesn’t get on with the squad and Rice is as thick as 2 short pieces of wood it really shouldn’t come as a real surprise that our squad is a shambles. Its now just a matter of how long Gordon Scott gives them before he admits defeat and bags them. Between the management team and the board they have destroyed all the hard work and feel good factor Jack Ross created. How can the club do this so soon after the Tommy Craig fiasco?

    Have you heard of any potential signings? It's all very quiet.
  13. I expect us to sign some English teams under 18’s this week as Alan Stubbs continues to build his squad. It will literally be men against boys, with Hearts 4 up by H/T and taking pity as our team burst into tears and need to be consoled by their mums.
  14. I sincerely hope so! TBH Stubbs can’t leave soon enough and hopefully he has 2 extra seats in the car for smart ass Jackson and it’s all about hard work Rice.

    I get that some may dislike Stubbs and some feel his is doing a good job but there is still a middle ground. He seems like a jobbing manager who doesn't have any real attachment to the club but I guess that is again fair enough as long as he does the business. I personally think feel quite ambivalent about him. He simply hasn't done enough to convince me one way or another, much like most of his signings.
