The St. Mirren FC 2022/23 thread


Recommended Posts

Liney was a proper lucky charm for St Mirren, asked for the day off from Dundee to watch the 1959 Cup triumph, and was in attendance for the 1987 and 2013 cup wins. Also described his debut for the club being the "best feeling in the world". Obviously a strong connection with us, but he truly was a Buddie for life.

A new girl in my team at work is married to Conor Newton's best mate (I know, right?). Once I found this out I insisted on making her watch the Final goal. She couldn't have given less of a shit. However, it did emerge that her husband was also at the final in 2013 to support Conor so he's good people, in my book.

 

Good story, Steve. 🙄

Newton has just signed for South Shields, my local side. Think I'll need to head to a game with my glorious new away shirt on.

Apologies for the off topic post.

Me and the wife were staying in a hotel in Low Fell for a weekend break, a couple of weeks ago. We went to South Shields on the Saturday. Had a long walk up the pier. I quite liked the place. Had some lunch in a pub called The Marine. The guy that served me was from Shetland. Really good selection of real ale. Unfortunately I was driving.

Won’t be surprised to see at least 2 more incoming players possible loan deals

Good to hear the club is still active. Also means they are backing Robinson.

Three required I would say. One left-sided , a proper sitting midfielder and any striker who has been scoring a few , even at League 2 level in England or Under 23 in the EPL !

Eslington Villa?

Glad you liked Shields. The town centre is as dead as Rangers FC, but the beach/prom is stunning and it's great for the kids. I've got some mates up this weekend, visiting for the first time, so will be doing the seafront pubs/Ocean Road curry tomorrow. Sun's out so it'll be a belter, until I start checking the score from 3pm, obviously.

What makes you think a striker that’s ‘been scoring a few’ bearing in mind we’re under five games into a new season so naebody has been scoring a few, will be allowed to go by their club ?

I’ve a friend that stays in South Shields and is a photographer for the club, I suspect he will have his saints top on next time he is at a game now.
 

You are right about the town centre and the sea front, spent a few happy weekends at the sand dancer and watching the bands at the amphitheater and in the park. It is amazing some of the free concerts that the council puts on down there.

It was Eslington Villa. Lovely hotel and fantastic food.

My wife used to stay there for work a few years ago and we always said we'd both go down and stay at some point.

I noticed that there were lots of curry houses on Ocean road. Enjoy your afternoon!

I am for giving the manager time, and in general I tend to fall into the "happy clapper" camp than I do the "knicker wetters" one, but Robinson is not making it easy on himself. Adding to the team, sure, not against that, but imo, we have a team on paper than can compete in this league and despite that we are now many games into his tenure (albeit he's only had one window, and it's not shut yet) and he still seems unsure as to what our best formation/strategy is.

It would be madness to dump him now, but I am certainly not that impressed by what I have seen so far.
