You feel auld, 10 years ago I was still in my 40s!
Aye, its a hard one to get the heid around. Oddly, it seems like more than 20 years ago in some ways. Maybe that's because it was all a bit surreal!0
Happy St Mirren's Day folks!
10 years! Dear God, I feel auld.5

I don’t care what James O’Brien has to say about the media (or anything) since he’s proven time and time again that he is a snivelling little shit of man that spends his days treating people far less privileged than he is as if they are dirt. The fact he works for LBC means anything he says about the “right wing media” is totally meaningless.
Not caring and disagreeing are to distinct reponses.
The platform isn't relevant in the context of my post. Let's be honest, the platform GL used to air his views is owned by a sociopath who runs a company that systematically racially abuses its employees, but no-one is talking about that.0

It’s a horrible far right outlet that has employed Katie Hopkins and Nigel Farage and said stuff like this:
Here’s James interviewing the devil himself
Compare the way he talks to Tony Blair to the way he talks to people who phone his radio show. Many of them are working class people who’s communities have been destroyed by those like James O’Brien, who was privately educated. He probably even met some of those responsible for austerity and the 2008 financial crisis whilst studying at LSE.
Are you disagreeing with what he said in the segment I posted?0

This is a man that works for LBC hahaha.
Many Thanks guys.
And here is James O'brien nailing it too (also apologies for any duplicate posting)9

This is awesome - apologies if posted already:
Don't do Facebook. Any way of embedding or whatever?
ETA - checked YouTube but doesn't seem to be in there.0
This is brutal.
Could get worse yet. Would at least have been a competition with 11 v 11.
The Celtic fans screaming and frothing over every minor incident around the box when 5-1 up against 10 men is embarrassing.0
This appointment is either absolutely batshit crazy, or utterly inspired.
I'll let the Dundee United fans decide....0
What about Jack Ross?1

Sorry bud never picked up on that. It's bizarre how certain players just don't click at certain clubs. I know there will be plenty folk genuinely saying what you were joking about but it just doesn't happen sometimes. No one can put their finger on why over the years but you win some you lose some. For every Dargo, Wyness and Brophy there is a Reilly, Eddie Gallagher and Martin Cameron.
Aye, as much as I'd love to see a free-scoring, fit, and motivated Brophy back in the stripes, his current form is context-specific.
Various factors will apply. Maybe he wasn't settled here. Our manager's approach didn't favour playing him. He simply needed a new challenge. Who knows, but the chances of him continuing his renaissance back in Paisley are probably pretty slim.1

Why ? He wouldn't score for us even if he was in form, it just wasn't working out and that happens at clubs as we have seen both sides of umpteen times down the years.
I wasn't being entirely serious.1
Can we recall Brophy?2

Lasley looks to have been an inspired appointment. He talks a language that resonates with the support, but also seems to have a keen business sense.
I hope he is around for a good few years, but his progress, like that of the manager, won't have gone unnoticed. That said, both are developments to be celebrated.2
Appeal thrown out....0

Nearly Friday afternoon and the st Mirren fans are watching Aberdeen YouTube videos to wind themselves up.
Outstanding is stretching it, but it is moderately entertaining.0

The tears and snotters on this are delicious.
I lasted about 4 minutes of the blovaiting fool (and that was after skipping to his self-defeating analysis of the red card)! They really need to take a deep breath and focus on hoping that their club can turn this round rather than indulging in OFesque obsession with individual, marginal decisions. We know the officials are shite overall. We know there are laughable inconsistencies. We know decisions can change games, and that VAR hasn't helped one iota. Teams can make it harder on themselves though, and by Christ, Aberdeen are doing that currently. A wee bit of self-respect is required now. It is becoming toe-curling.1

Dandies are losing it
That's just silly.0
Ach, that's a bitter sweet read.
Ethan will play for Scotland in due course. I am in absolutely no doubt whatsoever about that.1

Anyone heard anything about Lowry?
Need to hope we can hold onto Baccus.0
Just now, Ric said:
Tough one to call with Lowry. He's looked decent but there's been constant noise coming from pundits purely because he's worn an OF shirt.
Would I prefer him more than Watt? Depends on what Robinson wants; cover or experience.

I have just cancelled my membership. What an absolute shambles.
Like others, it is with considerable regret, but to remain a member in these circumstances is to condone and perpetuate the current set up, and I can't do that. Benefit of the doubt applied previously, but a thresholdhas been reached.
