Again, I'm not saying that we were the best St. Mirren side I've ever seen. Far from it. In terms of attacking football, creating chances, pace, width and actually putting the ball in the net, it's some of the most exciting stuff I've seen in many, many years.

We were relatively successful under Gus MacPherson whilst shitfesting our way to 1-0s but it wasn't great to watch the vast majority of the time, similarly with Danny Lennon. The football over the last few months was exciting, fast and thoroughly enjoyable.

 

Yeah but you're shifting the goal posts even further now. The original post stated Ross has you believing that it's your turn to overachieve like Thistle and St Johnstone, two top clubs currently in the top six in the top flight. 

 

That's not a reference to the style of football played, that's a direct comparison to the 4th best side in the country.

I also included Hamilton in there who you conveniently omitted. Could also make an example of Ross County as well. 

For what it's worth, overachievement in my eyes for a club like ourselves would to be 7th or 8th in the top flight given it's a position we haven't reached in a long time. 

Again, what is wrong with believing we have a gaffer who could potentially do something a bit special with us, comparatively speaking?

So Gordon Scott has told Dundee to GTF, surely if Jack makes it clear he wants to leave this means f**k all? Have Dundee even officially pulled out of negotiations?

Like I said before, I'd be surprised if Dundee were willing to really push the boat out on a relatively unproven manager anyway,

It amazes me how easily my fellow St Mirren fans get themselves all hot and bothered over the slightest bit of news the don't like.

 

Stelios goes home for his brother's wedding the day after the  season finishes and still hasn't returned, folk on b&w army are greeting about it daily cos 1 guy says he's got offers in England and another says Thistle want him. Poor c***s on holiday,  let him enjoy it and see what he decides to do.

 

Dundee sack their manager and  our manager, the man (Brendon Rodgers apart) who had the most success towards the end of last seasons name is thrown into the mix and poor Stelios gets forgotten about and there is folk acting like school lassies arguing over the boy they want to lose their virginity to, Arguing with anybody who might happen to have a point about why it would be a good move for him. Settle the f**k down man,  if he goes he goes,  we move on and find someone we can bring in to finish what he's started (hopefully). 

If like Gordon Scott says 'thats the end of the matter' then good, if not it's not the end of the world. 

Change yer knickers, have a beer and shout 'f**k the morton' and things will seem a whole lot better instantly.

Remember when Saints' fans wanted Ross punted because he was no better than Alex Rae?

Going to be funny when he's shite again come the autumn.

If only you'd tried as hard as this at school.

This.

Surely if Ross has made it clear that he wants to stay, St.Mirren wouldn't need to refuse Dundee permission to speak to him?

Far too rational for a St Mirren fan. 

You're supposed to be sifting through our accounts and telling us Ross won't go to Dens because the Derry doesn't have a sit down toilet.

No bother, Alex.

 

C'mon guys, it's ok to admit to being fickle. Most football fans are. If Saints are sitting outside the top four by November then you'll all be grumbling again.

There's always a minority of morons, and I'm sure you know at least one of the individuals I'm referring to. I can confirm that the majority were more than willing to give him time.

Normally these are followed a few days later with:

St Mirren had no wish to lose Jack Ross as a manager and have made every effort to keep him at the club but as Jack has made it clear  to us that he wants to speak to Dundee we have reluctantly allowed Dundee to contact  him.
