Re: Alternative to STAR?

Having said that, there doesn't need to be a permanent or fixed association as there is nothing to stop a group of fans with an idea getting together and implementing it - I think the group who occupied the away end to cheer on the team did so off their own backs/contacted the club (apologies for o...

Just saying, people are quick to sneer and mock, just give the man a chance. St Mirren domin8ed the Scottish Championship last year.

Ye maybe.

I hope he is a catastrophic failure.

Agreed. He actually sounds 'normal' Interesting last comment - we want less strikers (5) but more quality. Suggests a couple might be on their way out Wouldn't surprise me if they pay up Kermie's last year and shift one or both of Loader/Smith on loan. Work with Dadi, Novakovich, New singing (poss ...

Re: Rival Watch

Can’t see how you can lump Barrow even in the same sentence as the likes of Swift and Aluko when referring to last years performances He contributed in every game I watched and was our only source of danger in most of them He has flaws certainly, esp defensively, but the pluses massively outweigh t...

Re: Building for next season

The benefit of ifollow over attending a game is you have instant replay at your finger tips. Which I used to re-watch the many goals we conceded this season. The benefit of being at the game is that you have a much bigger picture than that on the screen. It's also what others don't do that matters....

IF this deal goes through I feel this could be a big turning point. Last season it took forever to get deals over the line and we often lost out. I am also assured that Clement and co seem to be looking at champ players and not foreign punts. A big statement of intent ( yes I used it) if this happe...
