    Our last 4 games have just reinforced the fact that we're one of the better bottom 6 teams, but not good enough to be top 6.

    Doesn't matter who it was to. That word went out with the dark ages. Just remember you have one of the biggest disabled supporters clubs in Scotland and that word is extremely offensive to them.

    Was good to see Campbell, Turnbull, Hastie, Cadden and Scott making an appearances recently (with Semple on the bench). 6 academy products in the same team is great progress and must be a huge selling point when we are trying to recruit.

    The moron who threw the lighter should be identified and banned. He gave the media all they needed to deflect from the horrible support in the South Stand. Is one horrible individual throwing a lighter any worse than 5000 Sevco supporters singing sectarian songs. I know what I think but I also know which club will be pilloried in the media.

    I’m not getting the Main hate. I appreciate he isn’t scoring goals however he is instrumental to how we are performing at the moment. His link up play is improving every week and his flick for Frears goal was class. A lone striker in this role has to be more than just a goal scorer and I certainly think that he is proving to be an excellent foil for our wide players and drags defenders all over the place to create space for the rest of the team. Seems he is the whipping boy for the perennially unhappy amongst us now.

    So they "had it coming"? It's one thing giving the ref and players a bit of verbals at a game - it can be part of the fun (it is supposed to be fun remember?) - but there is zero justification for throwing objects at the players, or even onto the pitch. And trying to claim a player somehow contributes to it by stealing a few yards at a throw-in is ridiculous. If you get so upset by the pantomime villains at a Motherwell match that you need to throw things at them, maybe football isn't for you.

    Basic defensive errors cost us and good players/strikers punish you at this level. Also that’s now 43 league loses to Rangers and counting which is not a record to be proud of. Another disappointment is the inevitable fine we will receive for the lighter that was thrown by some idiot in the crowd. This is money that we can ill afford to pay and I hope the individual who did it is caught and punished for their actions.

    That's right. And when they go bust, they go out of existence and cease trading. Hence the old Rangers no long exists.

    If he plays for Blackburn there is a greater chance of being called up to Scotland squad which he can then pull out of

    Well, I reckon the club should’ve known how good he was when they signed him. Why didn’t they see it !!??!! They should’ve offered a 3 year deal and a loyalty card at tinto tapas ...... how could they have got this so wrong !!??!! I think he would’ve definitely signed for longer in the summer on the offer of the loyalty card.

    To....myself? . Don't worry, I apologised to me, and I accepted. I shook hands and both of me have moved on.

    St Johnstone came to sit in and try and nick something, and if Kane wasn’t shite they might have. However, we persevered and found a way through their banks of five. Says a lot that they were parking the bus, we weren’t firing on all cylinders, but we still strolled it 3-0. I think some folk are failing to grasp how big a deal that is, with all the talk of changes that need to be made. 13 of the 14 players on the park for us today are responsible for the crazy run we’ve been on since the cup game, they all deserve credit. Main was instrumental in two of the goals today, and his hold up play was really good in the second half. I liked how we stuck to our plan and didn’t resort to punting it into the box, which lead to three really well worked goals. The counter attack for Frears almost second was clinical. Dunne strolled the game, and Aldred was Aldred, their partnership allows us to do everything else.

    If he is on 14k a week then I am delighted. What that means is that if they can pay that to a player that is no more than a good prospect then it will not be long until they are bankrupt again and we will be rid once again of this despicable football club.

    Weeyin, you are being deliberately obtuse! The point was an acceptable offer PRIOR to his first team exposure ie last year! As I myself have pointed out, an offer of an additional year and an extra £200 a week made last summer, with the promise of a new contract offer should he meet his targets would have been snapped up by Hastie and would have protected our investment, all for an additional sum of £10k! But we decided to spunk probably 5 times that sum on Connor fucking Sammon instead!

    The one thing you can be sure of is that if it's not stamped out quickly, the footballing authorities (or worse, the government) are going to bring in draconian punishments like hefty fines or stand closures. And the smaller clubs will be disproportionally affected.

    To those who didn't see the incidents. You see players steal yards at throw ins at every game. On this occasion however, the ball went out next to the corner flag. For the throw in Tavernier began to steal yards, and then more. At that point the crowd, and not just in the John Hunter Stand began to get worked up as it reached the ridiculous stage. Tavernier continuted to steal yet more yards. By this time he may have been say 7/8 yards from where the ball went out. From memory the referee then asked him to stop (I'm a little hazy about that). He ignored that warning then took another 2/3 yards. At that point we saw something getting thrown (too far away to make out what it was). We didn't appreciate that 2 objects were thrown. To be absolutely clear no player, including Tavernier, deserves to have missiles thrown at him. The culprits need to be dealt with or own own up end of. However both Tavernier and Nick Walsh need to look at their part in the incident, as their behaviour was a contributory factor. I assume thats why the fan(s) in the picture were worked up. Hope that clarifies it.

    And we've beat them in that time at least three times... and also taken points of them... this season.

    Fucking hate these cunts...and with Morelos and Kent out, surely we have a right good chance to get it right up them. Hopefully Gillespie manages to make it.

    Aberdeen interested in Main according to the papers. They can take him. He does the hard work. But he doesn't do it very well. He also doesn't score a lot of goals . Cheery bye.

    I would favour a move to the MLS much more than any championship team I reckon, purely from a lifestyle point of view. some of these cities look proper grim places to live, regardless of how much money you have.

    The badge looks shite. Aztec one is far better in my opinion.

    If the SPFL is doing its job then Accies, Dundee and St Mirren should have their fixtures arranged so that they have played everyone in the bottom 6 twice at home and twice away over the season. Then there can be no allegations of bias or unfairness to a particular club in the relegation dog fight. If we are to get an extra home fixture against someone surely it has to be Livi or St Johnstone. But it is the organisers of Scottish football so I wouldn't bank on it.

    Then what were you doing? There were 2 ways you could’ve commented on your quick stay check. I would’ve chosen to take heart from the blokes game count. You interpreted a negative and conveyed it in your usual passive aggressive manner but this time with a hilarious attempt at humour. so what was the point you were making? Or were just cracking an unfunny?

    You're arguing against a point nobody is actually making. I'm not saying we should be matching Rangers or anyone else's offers. I'm saying that if, AT THE START OF THE SEASON,we had offered him wages in line with his status as one of our better prospects, with the promise of first team money once he broke through then I'm pretty confident he'd have signed. I don't expect us to keep first team players or get into bidding wars with the Old Firm, but I doubt there was much competition for Hastie and Turnbull's signatures when they were unheard of teenagers with no top flight experience.
