The St. Mirren FC 2018/19 Thread

Recommended Posts

The Chic Young Heroin Bowl

Chic Young’s Faux support of all things black and white on the west coast was outed some time ago. He’s a supporter of a club that folded and now spends his days wandering aimlessly hoping that another club will welcome him in. Unfortunately, new Rangers has still got a tiff with the BBC going, but no one knows what it’s really about anymore as Celtic are now accusing the same investigative journo a Rangers fan.

I think Chico will end up being the celeb fan of a junior side. May even be Falkirk if they keep their demise on track.

Coventry Saint was always going to be on a winner today. As this is awarded to a city “coming out of the Shadows”, how much longer with they be stuck there in Paisley, with Hank, Cliff and co...

Some of my former colleagues were PRing the Coventry bid. I actually had a three way loyalty split... I'm married to a Mackem and live five minutes north of Sunderland. 

I definitely wanted Paisley to win, though. Ah well. I'll settle for promotion instead.

You were definately a right b*****d in a previous life!

Possibly.

Can't even imagine what you must have done.

Not nearly enough to be linked to Coventry, Sunderland and Paisley! At least the Luftwaffe did Coventry a favour and flattened it

It's a shithole because it was flattened. It was a lot like York before it was bombed. 

Also: you are from Greenock, right? Just checking.

True, in terms of achievements theres been nothing between the two clubs in the past decade

I understand why any St Johnstone fan would defend their club, as you are at an absolute zenith in terms of your club's history. There is realistically no possible way the club can move forward though. Perhaps the same could be said of St Mirren if we had had such a staggering level of success in relation to the resources available.

imo, anyone taking over after Wright will be managing over a decline though - with the already proffered caveat that people have been predicting the demise of the Perth club for nigh on a decade now.

You sound like a bitter rangers fan.

Super js should be applauded for their recent success, shows what a well run club can achieve on modest resource - something which we should definitely be aspiring to

And you sound like a fucking idiot. I have in no way said a negative about St Johnsone, if anything I have reflected on their staggering level of success.

Tell you what, I'll chalk this down to a pre-coffee morning reply rather than an inability to read.

 

Edit: Wait? You upvoted that comment? I really don't understand, you slam it then upvote it. Weird.

Turns out the soapdogers have been avoiding paying the minimum wage, times are tough in Greenock. Not every town in Scotland can reach the heights of City Of Culture finalists, Paisley.

Oh great another open top bus parade in Greenock.

 

Got to celebrate the little things in life.

 

 

Two failed comebacks to go with your failed city status and failed culture bid.

Div on the P&B FB suggesting Morgan has signed for Celtic. Anyone any clue how much? Seems like a waste if it's not breaching £500k (after clauses and all that)

He's out of contract in the summer and he's only been with us since he was 16. Think if he was to leave on a free, a category 1 club would still have to pay a significant enough development fee but nothing near his true value. I'd imagine, it's probably about £300k-£400k and we'll have him back for the remainder of the season.

See Stephane Bahoken is ripping up Ligue 1. Scored a historic winner for Strasbourg against PSG last Saturday and again tonight away to Bordeaux. 

This is a guy who without irony, is mentioned in some circles as amongst the worst players to show up at the club in the last 2 decades. He played 5 games, missed about 4 sitters, went home in a huff, got sent back over by his dad and spent the rest of his time saying he's going to get fitter. 

Now, he's banging in winners against the most expensive squad ever assembled and probably playing his way into World Cup reckoning for Cameroon, who his dad played for in Spain 82.

Mental days.

Love things like this. Mahrez and Bahoken, struggle to think of many other Scottish clubs who'll have that calibre of "reject".
