  1. Not much more you can add to what has already been said! Saints fans will look back on a purple patch in excess of ten years which included sterling performances from Steven Anderson. Most will agree that we as Saints fans were lucky to witness a team with no superstars, the majority of whom had served their apprenticeship and churned out workmanlike performances every week. Steven was the epitome of that Saints philosophy, I don’t think there would have been many games where you felt you didn’t get less than 110 per cent.. so to score the opening goal in a cup final seems the best way to remember a guy who you felt never shortchanged the fans.. wishing him all the best in the future ...
  2. Surely despite the current pandemic, it is imperative to appoint a manager sooner rather than later? It has been well documented that it wasn’t a case of if TW moved on but rather when, so I’d like to think our club would have been proactive and have had some kind of contingency plan in place? I feel Saints are currently missing a trick not having an appointment in place, everyday we are reading about another professional out of contract. I realise most clubs are in the same boat not knowing what/when things are going to happen so you don’t want it being a double whammy not having a manager too. No point trying to save a few quid with a late appointment when you end up missing some good signings?
  3. Just in the way we won the cup, the stars aligned, and I pretty much feel the same with TW’s departure. Most reasons that have been mentioned go on at other clubs, chairman holding tight purse strings etc, I do think it was crass of Preston to make insinuations regarding why he left. You either tell the whole truth or just shut up. I think the reasons are probably more mundane and it has been death by a thousand pinpricks. I’m sure history will eventually show that as much as it pains me to say it.. TW left at the right time. How many managers can leave a club a hero, and be able to return at some point an even bigger one! Will things be the same again? Probably not, but folk adjust... I won’t stop following Saints just because of a change of manager... TW thanks for the CUP, can die happy

  5. Could not agree with you more. Personally 12 Team league probably best as increasing it to 14 means more meaningless games. Realistically Saints season is at best top 6 challenge and at worst relegation battle, but at least something at each end to keep the season going ... think the last thing that’s needed is more meaningless games added to the mix. If Hearts weren’t in the relegation do da I don’t think it would even have been an issue!
  6. He might he phoned my mate, said he’d rather be speaking to fans than doing DIY
  7. Michael O’Neill just left Northern Ireland job... should Saints be worried?
  8. Nice wee article ... seriously being denied penalties since 1885
  9. Who would have thought we would be entering this match with a chance of overtaking Hibs and climbing in to the top 6 with a game on hand! I was at the Hibs game at the start of the season and when we grabbed the equaliser it felt like we had won the cup... if we put the same effort in at the next Hibs game then who knows. If we win we would enter the top 6 and still have a game in hand!! COYS
  10. I do believe, (I was told this when St Mirren played at their old ground) that the reason there is no cash gate is because there was some swickery going on at the turnstiles, say 1500 crowd and 1200 receipts. To avoid cash disappearing their games were made all ticket, I only found this out because I had to buy a ticket at McD for a game that was so not going to be a sellout, had mentioned it to a Paisleyite and they said there was pilfering at the turnstiles ... it kind of makes sense ... although irritating if it’s the only option to get in
  11. I think we will look back on this game as one of missed opportunity! I don’t know about anyone else, but due to recent results I was considering a 3-0 defeat from Celtic as positive, so really didn’t go in to the match thinking anything other than hoping we kept the score in single figures. Now that is bad... for long spells today we matched Celtic and certainly didn’t play like they were 44 points ahead of us! A wee bit more belief and application I think we could have got a result. Watching the leaders today I understand why they were knocked out of Europe. Not that anyone should worry, as long as the quadruple treble is still achievable, and they stop Rangers winning anything then the majority of their supporters will be happy.. it’s really difficult to win a one horse race.. quite a sad indictment of Scottish football...
  12. Must have changed just googled it last night can’t remember if it was the same site! But suddenly I feel even more pessimistic Madden ... awh naw ...
  13. Kevin Clancy... named as ref for today? Unless it has changed
  14. At the end of the day who cares, I wouldn’t stay away from watching my team just because the Chairman was a Victor Meldrew. Folk will always find an excuse not to support their local team, it’s too dear, it’s too cold, the football is rubbish, won’t watch the old firm, don’t like all seaters... the list is endless. I don’t think the reason the support is poor is because of the Chairman/board in particular, although I do think SB could probably suck the oxygen out of any party, and I do agree with previous posters, a big opportunity was missed after we won the cup. It’s down to personal choice for what people want to spend their time & money on, not the Chairman .... there are many flaws in the way the club is run, but the onus is on the punter whether they want to turn up or not.
