The St. Mirren FC 2022/23 thread


Recommended Posts

Not sure why people think sacking Robinson is suddenly going to get players who are clearly just going through the motions suddenly motivated ?


They won’t sack him before the end of the season, so it’s immaterial. But in the one game that Langfield had in charge we battled away and got a point with ten men away at Livi.
That’s what we need now, just a few battling draws. Had we got two or three of them in the games we’ve lost over the last couple of months we’d be fine and looking to next season. Instead, we lose every game.

If we lose next week then he'll deserve to be sacked and surely the board will surely be getting tetchy.

It's really too late for anyone external to come in and make a mark on this squad in the last 4 games of the season. 

Yesterday was clearly an attempt to stop shipping a crazy amount of goals.

We're 5pts ahead of St. Johnstone. If we Win next week i don't care how shit we are, I don't see them getting 8pts in 3 games.

We even have a game against dundee to come too, who we've actually beaten since Robinson came in.

The last few months have been dreadful, god awful even, but it's not over yet.

The knicker wetters are in full suicide mode. We will stay up and let’s see what the summer brings. Relax buddies

Agreed. Hopefully, we can dig in and avoid 11th or, if necessary, get through a play-off against what will be a distinctly average Championship side.

Robinson hasn't covered himself in glory to say the least: don't know why, when it was working, he shook up the formation after taking over and his comments after the Motherwell game were unprofessional. He's human like everyone else though and I remain confident that he'll put a decent team out once he's freshened up the squad. Let's not forget that his appointment was almost universally welcomed because of what he achieved at Motherwell; I'm sure that the board will keep the head even if we do go down and give him the chance to build something.

Unbelievable to think people are now talking about going down ?? This guy took over a team that were bound for the top six yet we should accept relegation and keep the faith. Can you honestly see us sticking with this manager if we go down? Imagine he had a bad start ? Look I think he will survive but it’s been absolutely terrible from all concerned for months now

Plus, he can only motivate players he has signed himself, so we're looking at 22 out, 22 in this summer. Plus Curtis Main who is staying put.

Keeping Curtis Main is a sacking offence in itself. I don’t really like all the trial by social media thing, but ffs it doesn’t take a pro football manager or coach to work out the lad is clearly out of his depth at this level, and the small matter that he lacks ability. I can’t remember seeing a player with so little ability play at this level.

Fans up in arms with a player social media post. Fans wanting the manager sacked. Gates falling , anti Kibble.  House of cards collapsing play off final it will be then. I see Jim Goodwin is doing as well as Robinson.  Robinson will not be sacked coggles  are well underway for rebuilding next season. 

Nope, over 4000 home fans at the game again yesterday.

Hey, was only a few short seasons ago it looked like we'd be relegated from the league below. I've learned not to take anything for granted.

I'll be honest, I thought Main had a decent first 45 yesterday. Probably his best in a St. Mirren shirt. 

That his best 45 in a year of football was just 'decent' sums up his time here quite aptly.

The last 30 minutes though was fucking pathetic on his part. He chucked it completely and Grieve actually did the work of a forward pairing on his own as Main was either too burst, not giving enough of a f**k, or a combination of the two to make any sort of meaningful contribution. Apart from what looked like an absolute sitter of a header at the very end.

One of the slightly weirder aspects of all this is that Robinson took over from McGhee midway through the season, outside the window and generally handled it fine.

We had been in freefall, lost 4 on the bounce (conceding 17 (SEVENTEEN) goals), scudded 7-2 by Aberdeen in *that* game at Pittodrie and were 5-1 down at H/T against Dundee at Fir Park when McGhee got his jotters.

His record P 12 W 4 D 2 L 6 (including a draw at Ibrox) - we finished 9th.

Obviously I realise Saints weren't in a tailspin like we were when he took over but it's not like he doesn't have experience of coming in to a club outside a window. Then again, I suppose he was taking over a club he'd spent a few years at and knew pretty much the entire squad.

The other thing that's been interesting from the outside looking in is seeing folk getting raging about his comments in the press as generally PR and handling the press was one of his strong points when he was at Motherwell and tbh a lot of what he's been saying seems to have almost been verbatim the sort of stuff he was saying to the press when he was with us.

Tough crowd.

I'm a muppet because I think 8 losses in 9 games is unacceptable and the 'manager' should go? The big font is to emphasise my absolute despair in keeping Robinson any longer.

1) It's better to get rid of him now, before he does any more damage. What's the point in sacking him after we're in a precarious relegation play-off against a team who've had an very good season and will likely be full of confidence? Why wait until after the St. Johnstone game, a six-pointer, to try to steady the ship?

2) A decent manager should be able to motivate a team. He inherited a winning side and has turned it into a side that can't win. I'm sorry, but I just don't accept that Robinson should be given carte blanche to lose every game, because "he needs his own players." That's absolute nonsense.

 

ROBINSON OUT!

You're a muppet because you're font is so big your message no longer makes sense.

You think the size of the font changes the meaning of the message, and you think I'm the muppet? It's big and capitalised for emphasis. If someone scrolls through this thread it'll get noticed. As far as I'm concerned, it's not even a matter of debate, IMHO.

When Jim Goodwin left we had amassed 32 points from 25 games.

Under Robinson, we have taken 3 points from 8 games.

When do we cut or losses and declare enough's enough?! If we lose against St. Johnstone, we're in real trouble. They have lost one from their last five games, having taken 8 points.

Get Jamie Langfield in charge and arrest the decline.

I wasn't calling you a muppet, nor was I disagreeing with you: I was just taking the piss out the fact you felt using a huge font would make your post more impactful.
