    Wanted Dundee United to get promoted today but maybe next year. John Beaten was hopeless as the ref today

    I remained determinedly neutral throughout ,until I remembered that our Chick, Clyde-estuary sailor and bon viveur of such wealth as to consider £90-odd grand as about enough to fund 'a good night out', is a passionate life-long supporter of St Mirren.

    And then I thought: naw, he isnae.( but, fair do's, he did insist that the Al Johnstone  'nod' took place!)

    And I returned to my neutral position.

    ……………………………..

    Aye, it's a great tragedy that the bigger club, favourite of so many from the SMSM, did not prevail and allow DUFC to return to the league in which they belong

    And despite them being aided by abject refereeing from, as Bill1903 aptly names him, Beaten – who was unable to find a bent rule by which he could deny St Mirren those defining shoot-out penalties.

    My Old Man 'tears of emotion' are now dried, palpitations subsided.. so thought I'd pop on here to quote a Buddie on our forum – about that refereeing performance.

    "Think what we witnessed yesterday with the referee was the SFA in full corrupt mode.

    Never a penalty
    Perfectly good goal chopped off
    Pawlett should’ve walked
    Connolly should’ve walked
    Nazon never a red

    Anybody see the footage of Doncaster when the cameras were panning the crowd? Not even applauding his play off champions. Devastated. GIRUY!!"

    I know we can all be a wee bit partisan, but my 'objective'crying assessment of the refereeing matched the above. 

    The game was very poorly refereed.

    Why were St. Mirren refused a UEFA Licence, when their ratings were the same as , for example, St. Johnstone, and better than Dundee?

    …………………………………..

    The fans/Buddies, paid for the building/installation of a new platform for wheelchair users and other disabled people, which was under shelter.

    This took out a shedload of seats, reducing capacity to under the specified 8000 which UEFA seem to require.

    capacity now currently 7937, IIRC.

    Could be simply amended, I would think.

    Couple of headlines from The Sun;

    Thing is Stevie… 

    It being The Sun, you always know it's gaunie be shite that's printed.

    Untruths, made-up stuff and flummery.  It's a comic for kiddies.

    I spotted the following on Twitter this morning, my heart sang for a second, then realised it was a bit of Sun "reportage".

     

    It's no gaunie happen.  wink

    Presumably it’s not something that takes place during the game.

    …………………………………………………….

    This may be why Mr Morelos is prone to falling onto the ground – and also why the thoughtful Aiberdeen-fit-like fans offered him a mattress?


    Does Money Indeed Ruin Football?
    So, who missed the three penalties?


    Does Money Indeed Ruin Football?
    I’m told that a tabloid called the Sun claims that referee S. McLean phoned the sevco manager to apologise for missing a foul in the lead up to Hibs equaliser on Friday…

    is this true?

    is this common practice?

    Have St Mirren’s phone lines been defunct for yonks?


    Does Money Indeed Ruin Football?
    Cluster one….

    glad you posted that C1.

    i was going to stick up a link.

    good to see the authorities still know how to deal with such despicable – or even accidental and bureaucratic – discrepancies in the registration of players.

    where would we be if clubs or clumpanies didn’t abide by basic rules?
