The St. Mirren FC 2022/23 thread


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Not at all fussed about Gallagher falling through (for the reasons I mentioned in my post from this morning when the deal still appeared to be on) and it appears that we made that decision for whatever reason rather than the player. Perhaps he was playing hardball with money and we've chosen not to waste our time or maybe a better option has come up because it appears we've moved onto this 'English-based target' very quickly indeed. Gallagher would have improved the squad for sure but definitely not at the cost of stretching the budget too thin for a 31 year old who is severely out of form.

This also may bode pretty well with Gogic IMO, as if we are pulling contracts that quickly and moving on as soon as a target for whatever reason doesn't look like going through, then it can only be a good thing that the Gogic contract remains on the table and discussions are ongoing.

Pretty much my feelings too, a decent signing but hardly a world beater. Martin Foyle will no doubt find us someone equally as capable but with less baggage.

I am late to the party here but Gallagher was brilliant for us, then he seemed to believe his own hype and turned into a shitebag. He was utter dugshite at Aberdeen anytime I saw him too. Kevin Van Veen threw him about like an empty trackie.

Heard a wee story today.

So, as part of the manager's gig at Saints, they get a company car. A decent Audi, I believe. Goodwin had to return it and was passed over to Robinson when he started.

One is of the green persuasion. The other is of the blue persuasion. Now, when Robbo enters his nice car it says ‘Hail, Hail Robbo!’ and nae fucker knows how to fix it…

Locked behind a patreon paywall, who is he talking about?

Hopefully Declan Gallagher.

And hopefully someone tells him he's wrong and late with the news.

The guys brilliant when he throws a strop.

But they could update the driver's name?

Aye. No buying it.

I've never seen an Audi that let's you edit the welcome message beyond your name, and I've been in top of the range Q7s from 2021, so this rumour sounds like absolute pish.

This reminds me of a joke I was told during lockdown… Rich guy goes to the BMW dealer to pick up his brand new 7 Series, top of the range Beemer. Salesman is giving him a run-through of the features. ‘Just wait until you see the stereo. Linked by voice control to BMW HQ in Germany. Just ask for the artist you want and it plays it, change your mind? Just ask for someone else. It’s amazing’. The bloke cannot believe this, so once he gets the keys, as he’s carefully driving off, he says ‘BMW, play The Beatles’. The stereo kicks in with ‘Back in the USSR’. After a few Beatles tunes, the guy says ‘BMW, play the Rolling Stones’. The Beatles instantly stop, and on comes ‘Brown Sugar’. The guy cannot believe how minted his new set of wheels are. He comes up to a roundabout, and two twats in a souped-up Vauxhall Corsa come screaming onto the roundabout and nearly wipe him out. He opens the window and screams ‘You complete fcuking kunts!’. The stereo stops the Rolling Stones and instantly kicks in again… ‘Follow! Follow! We will follow Rangers…’

 

My jacket will be collected as I exit the forum and head off sheepishly in the direction of the BBC at Glastonbury…. 😁

Maybe the name was put in as "hail hail robbo" as a joke and no one knows where the setting is to change it.

Because the other idea that the message is changed to "hail hail <name>" and Stephen Robinson entered his name as "Robbo" is quite frankly worse.

Aye, Goodwin had changed it as a joke. Anways, was just sharing a story of some ‘bantz’ between former and current manager. Was a mechanic I was talking to - having never owned an Audi I’ve no idea what you can and can’t do!
