Let's do this!

St. Mirren v Hibernian

02 March 2017 - 07:50 AM

As a lifelong Saint it has been necessary to get used to the highs and lows, far more of the latter.

At present though just as the Championship was beginning to look like a passport to the First Division we look as if we may be trying to dig ourselves out of the hole. It's now 4 wins from 5 since our new players arrived.

Lennon was glowing in his praise saying we're the best team they've played this season.

Do you guys think we can do it?

Dundee 0 v St. Mirren 2

Must be a classic case of the pressure being off but what a great result.

Must be one of the only giant killings in this whole round.

UK Parliament

There is currently a report being made to establish whether the Palace of Westminster should be refurbished ; This is anticipated to cost over £1BN.

Is it time to consider a new build in another part of the country?

For my part why not build a new Parliament? Why not locate in a northerly direction eg Lancaster, Middlesbrough or even Newcastle?

The current building (most of it) is Victorian so isn't that old.

Surely relocation adds credibility to the Northern Powerhouse.

Your thoughts please.

Ross the Boss

Scottish Championship club St Mirren have appointed Jack Ross as their new manager.

The 40-year-old, who is leaving League One outfit Alloa Athletic, will be introduced to the media on Wednesday.

Ross, who had a two-year spell in the Buddies defence, was appointed manager by Alloa in December 2015.

He told St Mirren's website: "I have fond memories of my time in Paisley as a player and can't wait to get started."

The Buddies, who sit bottom of their table, sacked former Rangers midfielder Alex Raeearlier this month.

St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott, who bought the club in July in association with a fans group, said: "I was very impressed with Jack when we got a chance to meet and am delighted to have him on board as our new manager.

"One of the big plus points for me was Jack being with Hearts at a time when their supporters got involved in the ownership of their club."

Although he was unable to prevent Alloa being relegated from the Championship last season, Ross signed a new one-year contract this summer and they presently sit in third place.

Ross, whose Alloa side won their first 10 games of the season, was a full-back with Clyde, Hartlepool United, Falkirk, St Mirren and Hamilton Academical.

He started his coaching career as assistant manager at Dumbarton before taking over the development team at Hearts.

Alloa have yet to comment other than a website statement thanking Jack for his services and wishing him luck in his new job.
