Feckity-feck! I was going to trek over for that tomorrow morning. No chance of a Delay Replay either.

Shambolic from all sides - St Mirren must be spitting feathers.

Players are on strike for non-payment of wages. Hardly St Mirren's fault.

Can't blame em.

i wasn't including the Buddies, which is why I said they must be spitting feathers.

I don't know the background to this, but if St Mirren's players haven't been paid, isn't that St Mirren's fault?

Re Dave Sutton post, the Halifax game is ON it's the Morecambe game that has been moved to a "behind closed doors" due to Morecambe pitch not being ready.

Halifax had better be on. It'll be my little lad's first away trip. I'll get no peace for a week if it's cancelled, I've never seen him so excited.

He'll be bored to tears after 10 minutes, but for now he's loving it.

Well Morecambe pre-season friendly has been cancelled. I wonder how much of that is actually Morecambe's issue or whether or not it's hiding an on-going issue with our side?

If that were the case they'd have cancelled Halifax and not Morcambe, given that Halifax is first up. The fact they've moved the location and not cancelled the game means it's probably as advertised.

Looks like they are struggling to shift tickets for Girona. Several "get them now!" alerts and now an offer of a signed Girona shirt as a prize. Quite a few on at Halifax, so hopefully not being pay on the day won't put people off.

Will be shocked if more than 200 turn up.

Hard to shift tickets for relatively high profile friendlies at the Macron! Let alone Girona at Leyland.

Very true, but I live in hope. Need to try and enthuse the young lad so he wants to go to the football with his dad before the Chelsea, City and Leeds fans at his school get to him.
