  1. Could argue every forum needs a yodo , a bit limited but can do the spadework but you couldn’t have a forum full of yodos or you’re in relegation bother
  2. So apart from winning it, what did you want them to for?
  3. Very unfair assessment of Ross....few StMirren fans I know really rate him....His Sunderland record wasn’t too bad , he might have still got them up
  4. According to the piece on the radio on Saturday when he came in , the club were 2 weeks away from administration. i wasn’t aware of that , although I hear people saying now it was fairly common knowledge. If that is the case we do owe Les a great deal of gratitude and he has offered very generous repayment terms, as well as matching the contributions with his own money I felt when he was talking on the radio on Saturday that he wanted everyone to know that he had played a major part in the whole thing , which can’t be denied.
  5. Gordon Strachan?? Wouldnt be happy with that .Its all about him and him trying to be funny or awkward at press conferences ......failed at Scotland despite getting two bites at the cherry .....give it someone who has something to prove , it’s all hypothetical at the minute anyway.
  6. Football has changed so much....I haven’t seen Sportscne yet but I thought it was a great attempt at a tackle ....don’t know how else he was supposed to try and tackle given the circumstances, just got to take these breaks
  7. Dare say they’ve come on a bit but they got put out of Europe by a part time Welsh outfit, arguably the worst Scottish European result ever, so we shouldn’t be fearful.
  8. I only watched the highlights but 3 of the 4 goals were down to terrible defending ....Sunday league standard. There have been Scotland teams with poorer players but defensively we are awful.We are in danger of making good players e.g Marshall, Fraser, McGinn, MacGregor, Christie look average because they’re not being played to their strengths i cant see big Dec being bullied as the two central defenders were last night
  9. No Scottish team can match the attacking prowess of Welsh part timers Conners Quay
  10. No, but he did mention social media and how if uninformed people put something in “print”, people then believe it to be true....fair point actually. He also mentioned how hoof ball had got them to 2 cup finals and you can only play with the players you have. He came across really well . Will be a big loss when he does go
  11. Going on last few internationals if defenders like Cooper and O’Donnell are “international level “ then it’s not a great leap to give Gallagher a chance
  12. Refereeing isn’t easy but having viewed highlights....how can the ref see that as a pen? There’s nothing in it. Was going to say that if it had been given v old firm , there be an uproar , but then you see the two pens Celtic never got v Hibs ....Refs don’t do themselves any favours with some bizarre decisions. I don’t think any of the above decisions/non decisions were particularly difficult
  13. Hard to find too many positives after last night but Gallagher and Polworth will be good signings....have to agree with majority re Seedorf, he doesn’t look like he has a trick to get by a player.....maybe just pace.... Am sure Gillespie will come good, if not we have a pretty good back up Cant see too many more positives based on last night ......
  14. From the statement there doesn’t appear to be an explanation why our game is priced at “premium “ rate....never seen a good game there yet....
  15. If he hadn’t taken over when he did , we might have ended up in first division
