  1. Craig Samson was called into a squad back around 2013. Aitken was the last to be capped whilst at St Mirren I'm sure. Edit: Just noticed you said outfield player, so we can all ignore my post!
  2. Michael Stewart claiming Ayunga was 'clearly offside'. Look where the BBC have drawn the line. VAR is going to be some laugh.
  3. You'd be forgiven for thinking that the SNP are the biggest Royalists in Scottish politics after hearing some of the gushing from them over the past few days. Blackford on Andrew Marr's radio show last night was a total King Charles fan boy.
  4. It's hardly a profound protest. It looks like a childish strop. Booing is what fans do when a pantomine villain dives to win a penalty or they don't think their team are putting in enough effort. What is it achieving? Other than bad press for the clubs involved? What point are people trying to make by booing? That they didn't like the Queen herself? That they don't like the institution of monarchy? Something else?
  5. Some of the toys out the pram patter on this is incredible. I saw someone on twitter saying they'd hand their season ticket back if God Save the King is played. Imagine allowing yourself to get so worked up over it. Equally as bad as the folk queuing for hours and hours to get into St Giles Cathedral last night. I'd be surprised if GSTK is played at many (any?) grounds, but I'm pretty sure there'll be a minutes silence before the weekend games. I'm inclined to agree with previous posts that silences/applauses at matches should be reserved for people connected to the club. At the same time if there's a minutes silence any booing/backturning and the likes just comes across as childish.
  6. They should play God Save the King for a laugh. I'd be extremely surprised if it was played but I can't believe people are getting all hot and bothered about the suggestion it might be.
  7. To be fair to Heaton, the price tag was nothing to do with him. Young lad came up from English non league and wasn't good enough. It would be a pretty unremarkable story if we hadn't spent cash and crowed about what a coup it was. He had a few daft posts on twitter if I remember correctly but I've no idea what his attitude was like in training. We got sold a pup though, there was talk of English Championship and even Premiership clubs looking at him. Which must've been nonsense, we took the bait and threw a bit of cash to get him in. Naive on our part. Stubbs clearly didn't do enough research on the guy.
  8. St Johnstone were good today. Solid at the back, albeit we didn't really ask too many questions. I thought we had some nice wee passages of play but lacked any real guile. 3-0 probably flattered St Johnstone a little bit, but credit to them for taking their chances. The ref was getting a fair bit of stick but I thought he actually had a decent game, any players throwing themselves to the floor at the slightest touch and he waved play on.
  9. That's looks like a good move for all involved. I can see him doing well there.
  10. You didn't feel we needed to add to the squad that Stubbs assembled?
  11. I'd be disappointed to see Kiltie leave, I think he's a good player. That said, for most of his time with us he's not been a starter. It took him a while to make an impact, now he's dropped down the pecking order. You could understand if he was wanting to leave. Do you stand in his way and risk having an unhappy player sitting on the bench?
  12. I don't get the hate for Jack Ross. He did a very good job at St Mirren and we quite possibly wouldn't be where we are just now if it wasn't for him. You're never far away from the sack in football management - and this might well be the end of his career at any decent level - so I don't begrudge any manager moving for a better paid job when their stock is high. That said, his get up for his Dundee Utd photo shoot was unforgivable and he deserves pelters for it.
  13. Ah yes, Falkirk have - in the past few years - made a serious of very astute appointments.
