It’s not often we will sign a current Scottish international who was under contract at his previous club for nothing.
Thanks Aberdeen, outstanding bit of business by the club 🤝

An ex manager doing us a turn for a change.

You can make a case for most of the summer signings being a success, Gallagher definitely up there. Strain getting better every week.

Desperate to see Brophy get back on the pitch and in amongst the goals but he just has to bide his time.

Feel bad for Jay. Very hard to see how he gets near a game for us at the minute.

Just noticed this post after i posted, I mentioned Brophy.

There is a few players that can count themselves unlucky not to be starting but you'd imagine they will play a part this season, unless some are on too much wages and will get punted in January.

Kiltie, Henderson, Gogic, Shaughnessy, Brophy are all too good to be sitting on the bench but you can't make a case for any of them starting just now.

For those interested Australia v New Zealand kicks off at 1100 on Thursday. On channel TEN Australia and Sky Sports New Zealand if you have access.

Grieve on for NZ after 51 mins

Strain for Australia after 63 mins for Atkinson of Hearts

Baccus for Australia after 81 mins.

I hate international football, don't watch it and don't believe that having seven players from our current squad capped at the same time is of anything more than a marginal benefit (if at all) to our club.

The substantial amount of money your club would get if the two Aussies go to the World Cup might be a pretty big benefit.

I'd prefer not to hold the WC in Qatar - tainted money.

P1608 of this thread was a waste of time and if I'm that much out of step then I'd be more inclined just stop supporting football altogether. I've stopped watching English football, European football and any games on Sportscene not directly affecting St. Mirren it wouldn't take much more to cut out Saints too.

Can't agree with any of this.

@craigkillie has mentioned the potential money, which is one thing. Of more importance is the standing of the club, and the idea that players can come here and be picked for their national team. Not only that, we've got players who are newly being picked. McGrath, Ronan, Baccus, Strain, and Lewis Morgan a few years back. That's great for future recruitment.

Plus we stand a chance of bringing in better fees for those players when they leave.

Also, to flip it on its head, it shows we've generally gone up a level in terms of the standard of our squad. That doesn't benefit us, but it shows we're progressing. 

Only downside is risk of injury and or fatigue, but I'll take that against those positives.

Fair enough I'm out of football completely.

I don’t think the World Cup should have been awarded to Qatar, but then again, I don’t think Russia should have got it, and I think F1 hold races in a few questionable locations. Not a lot I can do about it, unless I paint a banner complaining and take it to a Sellik game - that’ll sort it.

Anyway… I think it’s great to see as many St Mirren players as possible gain international recognition. These aren’t diddy countries with diddy international squads. If our boys are getting into these squads, it’s because they have been doing well, playing well, and aren’t shite.

It also shows players that they can get International caps at Saints, which will help convince future signings that St Mirren is a good fit for their career.

McKenna out injured for Tuesday.

Seems like a straight choice between Porteous or Gallagher.

 

It will be that diving cheating c**t Porteous he was picked in the original squad before Gallagher.
