The St. Mirren FC 2022/23 thread


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what, if anything, is going on behind the scenes at the club - particularly with the academy? I try to ignore the shit stirring on Black & White Army but some of the recent posts have a bit too much detail to just be someone on the wind-up.

The messenger popped his head up yesterday again. A story in the papers this week  ?  Player budget  out of control ? Are some of the ( stories ) the messenger told me yesterday with Stuart Gilmour extremely concerned about finances.  Fact or fiction time will tell.

Heard all this shite before.  How would SG have any knowledge of our finances any more?

We’re really going to be struggling for bodies next week.

No Brophy, Main or Tait. Strain limping off and Ayunga now suspended.

I think we’ll just have to settle for the draw.

Main will be back

Stewart has always been a fish wife who loves a bit of tittle tattle.

Best taken with a liberal pinch.

Pure laziness on my part but anyone know the last time we won a game after going down to 10 then being pegged back. I'm really struggling to think of an occasional in any division never mind the top one ???
We beat Livi 3-1 away in 2017 with Gary Irvine being sent off. Halket og and Reilly with 2.

The posts look like someone with an axe to grind so it wouldn't be a surprise if it's a former chairman, however there's a bit too much detail for me to just dismiss it as complete bollocks.

If academy staff - particularly someone like Ross Patterson - are being made redundant then that is a worry. So to is a die hard fan resigning as a director, even if Alan Wardrop did challenge someone to a fight in inflatable sumo costumes on Twitter.

Could well be bollocks considering other complaints in recent weeks have been the new security company being responsible for the dome being vandalised and using an architects from outwith Paisley for the plans for the executive boxes.

Bare Bum Boxing it was. I would’ve paid handsomely to see it.

A club director announcing his resignation in what is basically a pub seems pretty unprofessional if true. It boils my piss that the better things go on the park, the more this little cabal of shit stirrers try to provoke unrest. I can't start to comprehend what their motivation or aim is, baffling stuff !!!

Gilmour or Scott?

The former.

The combination of St Mirren employee knowledge, huge chip on shoulder and MAGA-esque Kibble conspiracy theories: "They've stolen our club!" had me assuming it was SG.

I'm very rarely on B&WArmy though so I didn't know if that had been established.

I don't know anything about the backroom issues. I'm pretty sure we got told this a couple of years ago too and I don't remember anything coming of it.

That said I genuinely think there is a proportion of Saints fans who are happier when we are doing shite and they have stuff to moan about and when we do OK on the pitch other stuff appears to fill the void.

The figure I heard yesterday sent a,chill through me. We have a banker at the top of the board so I don't believe the figure.  It better not be true. Its shit what is going on as we are going through a period of great success.  Crowds are also up. At one point the stadium was rocking all three stands. It's what we want as fans.

How much of a hero is Big Joe by the way?

Club captain dropped to the bench weeks ago. Others would have taken the huff.

Comes on yesterday and for the goal....

Fights tooth and nail in the air and on the deck to produce a kind of sclaffed toepoke which hits Greive who knocks it in. Joe then celebrates like a man possessed ending up in amongst the fans.

What a man!

The first four minutes of this is just fucking GLORIOUS!!

Late to the party here, and as you say that is absolutely brilliant listening. The complete and utter arrogance of those fans is frightening. Sitting laughing away and predicting 8/9/10 nil score lines like Celtic are some team of superstars. No doubt they are a good team, but I can’t get my head round that mindset. What would be the point of supporting a team that you thought was going to turn up week after week and win by those margins. 
 

Also, is that an Australian guy doing a Celtic podcast :lol: I wonder when he started that. He’s managed to pick up the self entitled attitude that most Celtic fans have very quickly. I hope he was spewing while he watched Curtis Main holding the ball at the corner flag for the last 4 minutes.
