    Likewise, I find your line of thinking to be quite incomprehensible. You talk about Michael O'Halloran's 'heyday' as if he wasn't playing quality football for us a mere year ago. I really doubt he has degraded into a hopeless case in the space of twelve months. Stevie May, on the other hand, is a different kettle of fish. Given the nature of his damaging injury and subsequent performances since then, it would sadly be more accurate to suggest that he may fail to capture the form of his 'heyday'. However, given certain players' propensities to reserve their best football for when they're employed by St. Johnstone FC, one must never jump to conclusions. In the case of MOH (and Danny Swanson before him), surely it's a sensible thing to sign players who we can be pretty sure will do a good job for us? I don't really understand any thinking to the contrary. Stefan Scougall is an example of someone who we took a gamble on. By our standards, he was on a very high wage. Ultimately, his signing was a waste of time and money. There's nothing wrong with that. You win some, you lose some. As far as Tommy Wright is concerned, his recent attacking acquisitions (Kennedy, Wright and Watt) have all surpassed expectations thus far. But when there's also an opportunity to bring in a tried and tested player of attacking quality, Tommy will quite rightly be interested. Especially when you take Drey Wright's injury into account. Granted, MOH's Ibrox move was a blot on his copy book. But it's no secret that a large number of their supporters took against him from day one (mainly for unedifying reasons). His performances didn't set the heather alight, but he wasn't given too many opportunities to impress and he was very much treated like an outcast during the Caixinha era. He moved as far as Australia to escape their stranglehold. It hasn't worked out for him there and he now has the opportunity to restart his career in Scotland without the constraints of Rangers and the negative influence of their prejudiced fanbase.

    Dundee v Saints 30/12/2018

    Well going to make it after a 43 hour trip from Melbourne. Taking my 12&14 yr olds for their first “live” game, & beleaguered wife. What better way to watch your first Saints game than a win at Dens? If we lose... it doesn’t bare thinking about. Remarkably, the game falls on our 1st Wedding Anniversary & a small celebration organised in Edinburgh. Copped some family grief from sister-in-law... “what’s more important, a football game, or your 1st Anniversary?”. I stayed silent. Responding to that comment is like walking into 20 IED’s. however, bless the wife & she moved it all to Sunday. Better bloody win now... marriage, kids riding on it.

    Absolutely battered them, genuinely must have had about six clear chances at goal. Defence is incredible, Tansers turned into an absolute superstar. I slagged Callachan, comparing him to Paton, but he's made me look like a right fanny there, was like Muzz in his prime. Won every ball in midfielder, got forward, got back, just bullied folk, MOM for me. Spoony and Craig ran themselves into the ground. Kane was perfect for that game too, had a few chances he seemed to rush, but he's just so busy and constantly looking to get in behind. Watt deserved a goal. Three separate instances when he was surrounded by Dundee players and he somehow escaped with the ball, rushed a few efforts, was unlucky with a backheel. Kennedy is incredible, just incredible. Dundee defence was completely shit scared of him, amount of times he ran right at them, and past them, was unbelievable. They restorted to smashing his knees and running studs down his achilles, as there was no other way to stop him. What a team we have here, we'll struggle to keep it beyond this season so folk need to see it as much as they can.

    Nice easy win, dundee are shite, saints must have had 70% possession, really solid all round performance from everyone. Maybe only fault is final touch/finishing, could have had 4+ more, but 2-0 is just fine. Great day out for saints fans, wish i was there.... 1800 reported by dundee TV, huge holiday travelling support, well done all, fantastic effort. Sure a few will be a bit horse after that sing-song!

    It was a Saints fan who had to choose man of the match (one of us Edinburgh bunch). The company he works for sponsored the game and put it down as him being the match sponsor as a joke. That meant he had to do the half time draw and choose MOM. He tried to choose Kenny Miller as a laugh, but they told him to piss off! Hence his choice of Ralph.

    Been trying to not comment on this, but I think the poor guy is suffering really badly at present with his known medical condition. I hope that Tommy and co are giving him all the support he needs as there is still a superb player waiting to burst back on the scene.

    It does comply to Lowland requirements we just need to get our entry level licence. We have applied for this and are working towards it although the SFA have thrown a spanner in the works by insisting that floodlighting is mandatory. However there are 3 LL clubs who don't have then and over half of the 17 clubs who have applied for SFA membership this year don't have them either. Its just a case of wait and see. As for next season all we know is there will be a 16 team premier league. The top 5 of each conference are guaranteed a place and the others depend on Lowland league promotion and relegation. 6th place may also be promoted. Below that has yet to be decided. Hope this helps.

    I put my hand up to being critical of Tommy's line up before the game, as it'd been suggested it was 4-6-0. But hard to argue with the line up and tactics the way the game went. Thought a draw would have been fair enough overall, and really disappointing to lose it late on. We seemed to come out a lot more in the second half, which made for a more entertaining game, but I wonder if that opened us up too much and allowed Rangers to create chances. Not going to complain too much though, as we had some great openings ourselves. Zander Clark, Scott Tanser, Murray Davidson, Liam Craig all had decent games, with no real failings. And after thinking he looked like a puppy chasing a ball just running about anywhere for the first 20 minutes, Callachan settled into a good game, and brings a lot of energy to the team. For them, Morelos is head and shoulders above everybody else in their team, with McGregor playing well other than one flap at a cross that conceded a corner. However, Matt Kennedy was the best player on the park. Absolutely brilliant. Shame he was so shattered and had to go offtowards the end, as we lost a lot of our attacking threat. Disappointing result, but no complaints about the effort or performance of the team.

    I can never understand the constant clamor from some Saints fans to get players who were once decent back to the club despite them failing elsewhere; May and O Halloran left to further their careers - (Good luck to them) and ultimately failed- they are certainly not the players they were in their heyday with us. I don't want either back at the club at the wages they would command. Both players will always have a special place in my heart and both were right to move on and that is what we need to do- Move on!

    Ibrox latest...

    (Cagey) - They need that guy on the park. Without his services they probably wouldn't be in their current position in the league. As the nations' establishment club this will be taken into consideration by the referees panel - before it gets anywhere near the Compliance Officer who, it would be hoped, would surely have based her ruling upon sporting integrity rather than which club he plays for . (Sixties) - That club are once again attempting to win trophies and league titles by sourcing better (arguably) players than anyone else whilst using money they reputedly don't have but... it's ok, because neither the SFA nor any of the clubs are of a mind to do anything about it.

    Tommy speaking about McIntyre " Jim has a big job on his hands and I think he knew that when he took it on." "HE WASN'T LEFT MUCH TO BE FAIR." Classic Tommy.

    Again a really outstanding team performance but the unanimous winner in the Highland Saints car as it headed north was Matty Kennedy.

    A word for Liam on his 362nd appearance. Scored a goal & inches away from spectacular 2nd. I think we all thought that he would be a bit part player this season but Tommy couldn't get a holding midfielder & tried Liam in there & he has made the position his own.

    I think you have to remember that this is quite an emotional time of the year for Danny with the anniversary of his pals murder. Maybe he is just trying too hard and putting himself under too much pressure. Plus he was probably rushing to get ready to watch the Edinburgh derby.

    This is probably the first January in a long, long time where I'm not that bothered if we sign anyone. I still think longer term we need cover for a central ball playing midfielder. Liam Craig is doing a terrific job in there but if he gets injured we are really struggling given Davidson's injury history. I suspect any transfer activity will be heavily dependent on who moves on - if anyone. I'm just hoping there are no bad surprises....

    Calender year form according to a Celtic fan on Twitter. In 2018, as a whole, we've won more away games than any other club in the league, only Kilmarnock have picked up more points, 33 to our 31.
