  1. The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

    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.

    It's because we are a wee team that we have these expectations......... like if you spend £75K on a defender then he should be one of the first names on the team sheet [emoji14]

    I’m not certain I'm convinced by Stubbs.

    So is that a diamond or not? I’m not sure

    Wow you big city boys, that is quality patter.

    2 things I take from that is Eck isn’t playing ball with the injured story and you need to charge your phone

    Shanks did well for us in his first spell but was really unfit when he came back after the summer however he did score 1 in 3 the first time around and you're right, the boy has plenty of talent. Best of luck for the season.

    I would hope we have a relegation clause?

    That's the bit I struggle with. We keep getting told Scottish clubs can't compete with English salaries, so by definition we're signing very low level players yet expecting them to play in Scotland's top league. Does the manager really think the Scottish premiership is that poor? Also just like Rotherham Stubbs was talking about bringing in Everton players...... never happened then and hasn't happened here yet either. I am starting to wonder if he blew smoke up the Chairman arse much like TC did with his contacts in the game. Now there are rumours of him complaining about budget, like our budget is new news to him, especially given Robbie Nielsen's comments on the subject.

    I hope you’re right but so far his signings have looked out their depth with the exception of Coulson and even he looks a lot better going forward then defending, which for a LB is a worry. He goes forward and after we lose the ball he doesn’t get back, leaving a right winger about 30 yards of free space. My biggest concern is that Stubbs has grossly misjudged the standard required and wasted too much of his budget on nobodies and is now starting to panic. It’s still early and like I say I hope you’re right but right now it looks worrying.

    Totally agree, the failing of a lot of promoted teams is being too faithful to the guys who got you up BUT replacing them with worse players is mental. Stubbs needs quality and quickly as we don't have the luxury of giving new signings time to bed in. Points are going to be hard enough to get this season [emoji53]

    Hope he packs gallons of SPF100
  14. Any story that mentions war chest, deadline busting, swooped or jetted in (like aircraft travel is fecking uncommon) pretty much ticks the terrible journalism box.

    Argumentative pish. Who mentioned Donati or Duffy? Both were brought in as emergency cover and the rest were squad players. That is B&WA whataboutery at its finest. I am hopeful that Stubbs has some experienced players lined up too as youth players generally lack consistency and can struggle with the physicality of Scottish football. However I am certain the manager knows that and will address it and so should you.
