    Fair City unity

    So why did they stop? Genuine question. I see a lot of hints on here from time to time about why they disappeared, but no one ever seems to just come out and explain it. From the outside looking in, all it looks like is the bizarre canonisation of a bunch of kids who can't be arsed to support their team any more. I agree that the atmosphere at McDiarmid is terrible, but that seems to be something that is Scotland-wide. Whenever I've been to any games abroad, fans sing and chant and bring colourful displays to add to the atmosphere. In Scotland, everyone pretty much sits silently on their hands (me included, of course). I remember a few years ago watching Saints play in front of a massive Hearts crowd at Murrayfield, but there was pin-drop silence to the point that you could hear everything the players were shouting to each other for the whole match. I'm not sure why it's like that in Scotland - is it lack of alcohol?

    To all Saintees hope you are having a fantastic christmas and that the New Year brings everything that you wish for. Cup run to the final would be good.

    It is a victory and whilst the football snobs may not think it was pretty to watch it is 3 points exactly the same as the best footbaootlling display will get you. Thought Stevie may had a fairly good game plenty of energy and a good work rate.but still no end product. Don't agree that it was as poor a game as Ferguson was saying on the radio and certainly not as one sides as Brian Rice was saying. . 3 points on Sunday please for a perfect end to the year.

    It’s a combination of enforced sitting down, and being feckin freezing I think. Moving an inch means you lose the thin layer of warm air under one of your coats. More importantly, huge, huge kudos to you for using the word “canonisation” on a footy forum - and getting away with it. Almost.

    Hamilton V St.Johnstone - Boxing day

    Agreed about the game. It was dreadful to watch. Two poor teams. First half I thought Hamilton were more purposeful than us but they didn’t create anything. Second half was more even but the Hendry substitution changed the game. Whilst I’d also disagree with the smash and grab I can see why he said that. Accies tried to play into space and get the ball wide whereas we mostly hit it upfield, usually aimlessly. I didn’t like the way the first half was developing. I’m very happy we got the points and are moving up the table. Let’s not kid ourselves, we are creating next to nothing game by game, are void of entertainment, and the quality of the league is shocking. The fact that we could be close to top six on Sunday is testament to our improvement but also reflects just how bad the rest are. Having said all that, we are close to County, high flying (?!) Livingston, and closing in on Kilmarnock. After the poor preseason, transfer dealings and poor start to the it’s great to be where we are.

    We had all summer to get a big striker that plays as the 1 in Tommy's formation. But by popular demand we chased Stevie May. Now we have him and Tommy has realised May is not capable of being that loan striker. Even when Tommy started 2 forwards on Saturday he is on the bench. What a waste of money. So much for the predictions "he will score 15-20 goals a season"

    It's my daughter that left on a stretcher, thanks for the good wishes. She's in Ninewells getting treatment just now, we're hoping to have her home for Christmas. Thank you to the staff who helped her yesterday.

    Fair City unity

    I spent a couple of months in Spain last winter. Went to 2 games at Elche, Spanish 2nd tier, they have been in the top tear but hit some financial snags. Stadium was built for the world Cup, holds around 35,000 and is open air. Attendance at the games I went too was around 12000 including a few hundred away fans. They have an ultras group, a couple of hundred at most and they bang the drum and sign a lot. As for the rest of the stadium, not a lot going on atmosphere wise. The big difference was the cost, we got picked up by coach in bennimar about half hour drive to elche, the coach was mainly ex pats and arranged by an ex pat. The coach and the ticket for the game was just 20 euros. The football wasn't any better than we watch at saints but the cost was much more attractive.

    No Cash gates. This is a pain in the ass - the ticket office is on the opposite side of the stadium where the away fans are. Might seem a wee thing but just another obsticle that puts fans off going to games.

    What’s striking about those stats is the amount of shots Kennedy has compared to anyone else in the team. Suggests to me that the likes of May and probably Wotherspoon and Wright need to start shooting a bit more. We don’t test the keepers enough.

    While Matty is a good player we dont have a shortage in his area. Our survival wont rely on a single good player but with players playing their heart out for the club.

    Worth mentioning, with half the season officially now gone, that only Celtic, Rangers and Aberdeen have actually lost less league games so far. Football is weird as ****.

    Can start to think about those above us, rather than below, now. A loss against County could put us right back in the mixed though, believe we're 11th in the "Home" table this season.

    Probably a bit of a shitfest with Tommy's new mantra of not wanting to lose. Same defence but hopefully McCann & Kane back. Would also like to see Craig as holding midfielder & probably Spoony as long as he is played on left.

    I’m pretty sure it can work both ways. Saints will have a get out clause / mandatory wage cut in every contract but I’m sure players will also be able to insert clauses, such as valuation release clauses and relegation clauses. Maybe even Santa Clause’s

    We need a striker just as much as a centre half. Getting a big one,good in the air is probably impossible for Saints. Tommy is pals with Lennon. I wonder if we could get Griffiths on loan for rest of season.

    Those were the days when I could afford to go to away games. I was there and had successfully obliterated this from my memory so thanks for that BH....... I seem to recall Martin Hardie telling one of our fans (ghosting I believe) to go away and procreate at the second away fixture at Clyde that season!

    2018/2019 FINANCIAL FIGURES

    Of course there are always areas for improvement, but to me this statement is just bizarre. We've comfortably stayed in the top flight for over 10 years, recently won our first cup, had several recent European qualifications, and consistently appointed successful managers, and done it all whilst staying debt free, owning our own stadium and surrounding land and amassing £2 million in the bank, despite our fairly crap average attendances. On what basis are Saints not a well-run club? What else could the club do or achieve that would make it well run in your eyes?
