The St. Mirren FC 2021/22 thread


Recommended Posts

It's been a shambles far longer than that. I saw a post somewhere that said St Mirren had gone through just short of 90 players since Gordon Scott took over as club chairman 3 years ago and 10 first team coaching staff. Every transfer window has seen the playing staff go through huge scale transformation. Players brought in on season long loan deals have been sent back to their clubs after 2 - 3 months. Players that have been signed are then almost immediately loaned out again to lower league clubs. Players signed on permanent deals have had their contracts paid off as they've bee released weeks later. And this season the club has suffered the embarrassment of losing a manager the Chairman claims he wanted to keep to a semi professional club playing in the Northern Irish Leagues. To put that into context that's the equivalent of  Derek McInnes quitting Aberdeen to go manage Kelty Hearts. 
All the time that is going on the clubs got a cloud cuckoo land CEO whose blabbering on and on about how St Mirren should be top four to top six and an "extensive scouting team" Official Website  that appears to be Gus MacPherson monitoring a database driven website for players with unusual attributes. 
I don't think too many will be on Jim Goodwins case, at least not just yet. 
 
JR had to work his magic to keep this club in the top div . that result in the last game of the season to keep them in the championship was massive . then to go on to win the championship was massive for the club . IMO I think if JG keeps them it a great result . Never mind top 6 as TF is going on about . By the way the current Board need to stand up and be counted in all of this they put the club in this state with bad decisions over the past year or two . am sure JG knew what he was going into given time he will fix it if the budget is there !!!!!

Some of the stuff on here is reaching black & White army levels of desperate attention seeking. So many needy drama queens who seem to think they know everything that goes on at the club, and if it’s not to their liking the toys are out of the pram. 

I can’t be arsed with it, Goodwin has been in the job two weeks and he’s not even assembled his squad for the league campaign.

Give it a rest and let him get on with his job as he starts the long road of rebuilding and stability.

When they find out what one of our short term players was on last season there will be a mega melt down.  Surprise, surprise will take your breath away trust me. 

Who and how much, then? Go on, you have our ear.

Unbelievable amounts of ITK stuff on here and hardly any of it will be true. This was always going to happen after yet another manager pisses of at the wrong time leaving the incoming guy less time yet again to sort it! It seems to happen every bloody season. Jim needs backing and that means at least 5/6 players being brought in, over to Gordon,  Gus and Tony, time to help him out.

Demented Zebra LOVES this "oh, you won't believe" it stuff that, let's face it, is total bullshit.

Seems like one of those folk who genuinely enjoy being able to say "I told you so" that pretty much every club has.

I'm not even sure he's ever been correct 😂

He's been dropping these 'ITK'-style doom-mongering posts on here for about six weeks now and I am fairly sure his reliable sources are the voices in his head. He's a solid enough Saints fan, but it's painful to read.

There are some ridiculous threads on there at the moment, the one about Goody not being in the dugout for kickoff is particularly fucking bizarre.

Ian I’ve never had the attitude of looking down on anyone, but when you read through that black & White army forum it would make your eyes bleed. 

The same clowns trolling their own fan base with multiple alias accounts, is not for me mate.

Agreed. I stopped posting on B&WA last autumn after years of using the site. It really is fucking abysmal these days, with attention seeking fannies holding court.

I still get drawn back, but it's just habitual now. I get no value or entertainment from it. Much like with any other social media, it's mainly a cesspool with increasingly sparse moments of quality. Decent posters being driven away by constant, repetitive bickering among the same slightly broken middle-aged men.

This place is actually an oasis by comparison, and is far superior.

I do happen by from time to time in the futile hope of finding anything resembling a decent rumour, or, even less likely, some genuine news. I don't engage, though. As you say, the petty in-fighting and vacuous drivel is soul destroying.

Last season was a 3 horse race. We decided to turn up in a pantomime horse outfit with a donkey leading us round the paddock and, no surprise, we finished last, despite quickly swapping the donkey for someone that happened to be passing by on their way home. Somewhat inexplicably, the wonderful city of Dundee bailed us out. Twice. 

This season looks like a 4 horse race, but I'm not ruling out the fakes or even Killie joining in for a laugh. Despite our performances to date, we've got the core of a decent squad and a promising manager.  Now we need to build it into a team through acquisitions, loans, development and management.

It's July ffs. The time to even begin to start worrying is at least 6 months away.

I think Jim Goodwin is an upcoming excellent manager. Im sure that given backing from the board to allow him to bring in his own targets will see St Mirren develop into a solid Premiership team.

Ruined plenty of them before.

True. Nobody does a January transfer window squad overhaul like we do. Piece of piss.

It'd be nice if we didn't shit the bed when it comes to acquisitions every summer, though.
