Blinkered Views risky punt against St Mirren

1113

In his Bookies Corner article for the current issue of CQN Magazine, columnist, Blinkered Views, suggested St Mirren offered good value for a punt on relegation.  I spoke to him when he submitted the article and suggested, “Surely Dunfermline?”  He agreed Dunfermline were most likely for the drop but they offered no value.  St Mirren, on the other hand, were 9/1 for the drop and he made a good case why this was worth a bet.

St Mirren promptly spoiled Christmas for thousands (not your or me) by coming from behind to beat Rangers but that has been their only win in 8 league games.  We also don’t need to be reminded that when visiting St Mirren Park, form is a poor guide.  Celtic exited the Scottish Cup there a week after beating Saints 7-0 at Celtic Park.  They are a team who can raise their game for the big occasion and the visit of Celtic, live on TV, is as big as it gets around Paisley.

Paddy McCourt has enjoyed his visits there and has been key to Celtic collecting the points a couple of times.  Don’t be surprised if he makes a match winning appearance from the bench.

    Nothing to beat the barter system, everybody is happy, in saying that there is only so many things you can do with peppers, fruit and the like, but you get used to it.

     

     

    The wee gatherings are worth their weight in gold, the wine is to die for and the food is divine.

    Was his first game away to Killie ? and he scored cutting in from the right, aye he has it, and it is starting to show on a regular basis.

     

     

    Sammi is and always has been world class.

    I will always admire Sammi for his dedication and thick skin when he was ( until very recently ) gettin pelters from all and sundry.Respect. But 20 million? Can’t see it…would bite the hand off that offered 5.

    your right of course, that is the preferred choice when i have the tina turner in my hoose.

    Aberdeen’s form has picked up recently so there is a real good chance as long as the MIB doesn’t influence it heavily. The ORC home crowd must be bewildered and it is a cert that a few players will not be wanting to get injured before their last minute moves out of Mordor.

     

     

    Is 5 points clear being greedy? ;)

  11. MWD,

     

     

    you fancy the keeper in the CQN 5s team with ma fat erchie in front of you sweeping ……its a long way roon so less work for you

    HAIL! HAIL!

    Yeah home earlier tonight after a week away.

     

     

    Best part was getting on a flight from Southampton to Dublin and hearing ” I just cant get enough” playing over the intercom.

    Totally agree. I have this one in my favs. If it doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, then you are the Tin Man.

  14. Petec/MWD,

    If MWD isn’t available I’l be his sub.

     

     

    My cv includes being able to lie in front of the goal and block out 74.3% of it just by turning onto my side .

     

     

    Sanna

  16. Catman , St Stivs , all the Sky+ recordings have moved to 993 in ‘Sanna’ .

     

     

    reduce their viewers = reduce their advertising income . really simple to do

  17. Sanna,

     

     

    LOL!

     

     

    (BTW is it just me who feels a wee bit wrong writing “LOL” for certain other connotations???)

     

     

    Anyway sounds a reasonable back-up plan……………if nothing else im sure you’ll be up for the post tourney bevy??

     

     

    Additionally did you get my text earlier re TKF EOS?

  18. loved this quote from edson arantes do nascimento about lionel messi

     

     

     

    The 71-year-old said: “I like Messi a lot, he’s a great player. Technically, we’re practically at the same level.”

     

     

    Yeh , Edson , but he’s 24 and your 71 – i don’t think your’e being fair.
