“A new, contemporary, enhanced experience when we all get back to backing the Buddies safely from the stands.”

Can only be two explanations. One - they are filling in the corners, vastly expanding the concourse spaces and adding exciting new street food style catering choices and a barista standard coffee bar.... or, the bird shit will be cleaned off the seats and we’ve got hot running water back in the West Bank lavvies.

Either way. Easy the Mirren.

 

Safe standing....safe standing....safe standing....safe standing... 🙏

Is there a particular reason Fitzpatrick felt it needed to be known that Goodwin has been issued with the biggest budget ever for a St Mirren manager and is now the highest ever paid manager in the clubs history? 

That'll be several hundred a week added by a greedy agent to any signings JG tries to make then ......

Don’t know how I found time to watch these brief highlights tonight, what with me just back from the pub, booking my summer holidays and an early visit to the hairdresser tomorrow, but hey ho.... anyway... I’m sure every Saints fan out there is equally busy, but something caught my eye while watching the highlights.... question for you all. In the build-up to Stevenson’s opener for Hearts - two tackles by St Mirren defenders. If those tackles happened this week, and the two Hearts players scream like they’ve been shot, what do you think? I think two straight reds. Thoughts?

Edit: Forgot about my supplementary question.... Newton’s strike for the third. It goes wide doesn’t it? Surely. It must. One of these times it goes wide. Bookmark this. 😄

The last few weeks watching Sportscene I thought safe standing was going in at Fir Park....

Turns out they're just replacing seats. On top of that, new toilets, lights and PA system, a fresh lick of paint and a "digital menu" at the pie stalls. I'd imagine our "enhanced experience" will be along similar lines!

I'm old enough to remember how shite standing all game is, while all seater is definitely a little too sanitised, there are no great halcyon days of terracing. I'm certainly not against people being allowed to, after all even all seater sees people on their feet for a lot of the time (depending where in the stadium you are), but I'm not likely to opt for terracing again.

I did wonder the same about Motherwell! We're fan owned soon, so no reason not to introduce safe standing...

Not for me either, also an age thing, but I can see the appeal for younger fans. 

Obviously when Thommo plays Teale in down the right-hand channel and the keeper's caught in no-man's land with Isma in acres of space down the middle, I reserve the right to stand up then.

I want seats right at the back, so I can stand without obstructing anyone's view. Unfortunately I can't get them. The trouble is I also don't qualify for the discount if I try to wait...it's very annoying.

Interesting that Goodwin is wanting another player in to ease the injury burden but has to be someone who is ready to go now.

Are we allowed to sign loan players just now? Would be surprised if we found any match fit free agents at this stage of the season, unless it's a termination from another club.

Standard free agent chat, isn't it?

My bigger concern, if you could call it concern more a 'Roger Moore raised eyebrow' is with him becoming a bit of a rent a quote. I get the idea he's commented on the Taylor dive, and he was right to. To extend it onto diving in general, sure, I get it. He's now aiming at the Rangers lads who broke Covid regs. I mean it's not like he's not wrong in any of the things he's saying, just feel he's being a touch too vocal for my liking.

Interestingly with his new transfer chat he sees being with us for a couple of years before moving on. I wonder how likely that will be. Either he'll run into a really rough patch late next season and end up being huckled out the door, or he'll be gone in the Summer is my thinking.

No. But I'd imagine anyone coming in will have had to have been left their club in the January window and have been playing regularly.

Which you'd imagine can't be a huge market.

Sod's law that months went by where we had central midfielders (Foley and Sheron) pretty much surplus to requirements and now that we've let them go......

On the safe standing, the club is big on maximising "income streams". I reckon there could be a decent number of teenagers who might be tempted to come if there was the novelty of standing at the game with their mates. Where else would they have the option? Arthurlie? Capture them at that age and they'll put cash into SMFC for decades to come.

100% this.
