    Thanks everyone! I'm doing really well just now. Officially classed as in "remission" but the cancer will rear its ugly head again one day. Hopefully we'll win another Scottish Cup before then!

    St Johnstone v Hibs 09/11/19

    this stop-start season is infuriating for us fans and must be so for the players, too. No game last week, now a game against Hibs and then yet another sodding international break. I'm sick of them. The last two seasons have been absolutely ruined by the number of blank weekends.

    Thought it was an excellent article and hit the nail squarely on the head. Before anyone accuses me of being one of the ‘happy clappy ‘ fans, I too have watched Saints up and down ALL the divisions, so consider this episode as a blip in an otherwise successful 10 years... we are a team in transition and if anyone deserves time to turns things around it’s Tommy Wright.. for those fans calling for his ‘head’ be careful what you wish for! If we are relegated then we just have to take the good with the bad, hopefully won’t come to that. In the meantime let’s get behind our wee diddy team.. COYS

    I was just going to post that. It’s not really a complement, though, is it? “We didn’t mind the goalless draw with Annan Athletic, but losing to St Johnstone?? Get yer coat”.

    You are entitled to your opinion like everyone else obviously. But I read that and think it's unbelievable. Kennedy has been our best attacking player over the past 12 months by a long way. He makes things happen and is a constant thorn in the side for opposition defenders. Our top scorer last season and joint top this one. Regularly puts good deliveries into the box. He does give the ball away at times, but he's an attacking player taking a gamble on beating players, it's not always going to come off for him. The thing is he does it in the right areas, the final third. It's not as if he's trying to beat players and losing it in our own half. If we're still struggling in January, he will be the first player other teams try to sign on a PCA.

    Worth watching the goal back, as it's his first time, reverse pass, to Muzz that brings about the corner. Can we give May more than 4 games before we write him off pls? And can we give him and Kennedy more than 120 minutes as a partnership before we start saying they dont work and they're both shite?

    To be honest I think our biggest problem is Tommy not picking the same team 2 weeks running.. we aren’t playing as a team, maybe pick a team and stick with it for a few weeks. Unfair to single out any player when they are all equally culpable. Think we just need to man up.... plus one up front! After 9 games and no wins it’s obviously not working! I’d rather we attacked and were beaten, than try and defend and still be beaten.

    Amazing Saints Some people might know that I've not been keeping well for over a year although I'm much better now. During my stem cell transplants Tommy and the players surprised me with a video of well wishes. Liam Craig organised it all with the help of Gary (will fix it!). Our wee club are so special. Just shows the lengths they will go to!

    There was a time when I was touting Kerr & Clark for a Scotland place. At the moment I think they would both benefit from a few weeks in the stand. Their confidence is shot. A goalie should command his area & marshal his defence.

    To be honest I think having the security of a good manager is of a lot more value to Saints than getting a bit of compensation.

    Young McCann was utter class today for us. Callum Hendry has scored 3 goals this season.............same number as fans favourite and how will we manage without him scored in the league last season......Tony Watt. - Time for the young man to get a run up front alongside Stevie May - Callum in the role a young May played and Stevie the role of Macca

    Player contracts and transfers

    I don't think we will ever know the inner workings as the chairman says one thing and the manager says another. We have had gaps in the squad for long periods of time ever since Chris Miller was frozen out. Defence, central midfield and striker have all needed attention over the last few seasons. The fact there was never a suitable person filling it can't all be down to the budget that Brown sets.

    I despise these international breaks. Almost getting to dislike them as much as I do the OF!!! Can’t stand them. What a waste. Doubtless players called up for their country would disagree, but it’s different as an onlooker. I wish them well but I can’t muster any interest in international football at all. I may be unusual but I don’t watch English games or champions league. I prefer to attend a game, but increasingly I can’t. Nothing can be done about it. Rant done. Don’t feel any better.

    Played with a lot of spirit, dominated the match and deservedly took the three points. The fans who were there got behind the team brilliantly - great collective effort. The defending in the main is still pretty shambolic at times but going forward Spoony and Kennedy were a constant threat. Hendry took his goal quite brilliantly - an excellent striker - maybe our best in the squad at the moment? I really think we will win again on Wednesday. You the fans are needed - lets get there beat the Jambos and get off the bottom. Enjoy the cervezas comrades. Onwards...

    I gave up at 1-0 down. I gave up at half time. I gave up at 2-2. The players deserve huge credit. That was a Tommy Wright side, all guts and heart. Not been this buzzing for years

    St Johnstone v Hamilton 26/10/19

    Really well deserved win. Had we had to settle for a point, you wonder what it would have done for morale. But scoring that goal in the closing minutes and being able to come back from being a goal down should really boost morale. McCann was very good in midfield along with Davidson snapping into tackles. The defence is still a source of worry though....we need a defensively minded coach in the door for a few months to really drill that back four into defending properly. Credit to Wright for the sub at 2-2 as well.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    Well we apparently had enough to bring in Vihmann, who Tommy apparently already has no faith in, and since then we've released Foster (as Saint Paul mentions), so to me that doesn't seem like the best management of the personnel situation at the back. Looking back I'd say there are a few different mistakes/bad judgement calls that have been made with the defence... The belief that an inexperienced Kerr-Gordon partnership would be good enough, following the departure of Shaughnessy. It's interesting that if you look back to when Shaughnessy's impending departure became public, people on here were calling out for those two to become our first choice pairing. That now seems very naive to me. Sending Ando back out on loan - it feels like, if he was still here, he'd probably be back in the team now. Besides, he's surely the experienced head that Kerr and Gordon would benefit from learning from. Why was Vihmann signed? Tommy said he'd watched him several times and was excited to get him. Now he can't get near the starting line-up even when Gordon is injured. How can Tommy's opinion of him have changed so dramatically in such a short space of time? Was a bad judgement made when scouting him, or has a rash judgement been made in dropping him? Either way, it feels like a really badly thought out piece of business. If only there was another Duberry/Kernaghan/Mackay/Wright/Weir out there who could come in and take charge of the defence. I think Tommy should have seen earlier that we were seriously lacking in that department earlier, and it should have been a bigger priority while the transfer window was still open. I'd also suggest that, regarding the penalty situation, it may have been made worse by constantly changing the penalty taker every time a player misses one. I really don't think that helps. I think we need to work out who our best penalty taker is and stick with them, even if they miss from time to time. Having said all that I'm still 100% behind Tommy and I'm of the opinion that if there is any manager in the world who deserves time to turn things around, it's surely him.

    “What a strike! It's against the run of play, but Jonathan Obika puts the home side in front with an impressive overhead kick. Sam Foley's free-kick causes a stramash in the penalty box, Kirk Broadfoot flicks the ball on and up goes Obika to spectacularly hook it into the bottom corner” How much more. How many times. How many more excuses. Enough is enough. We’ve now given the lowest scorers in the league a goal start and something to defend in the second half whilst we’ll be chasing the game again. 45 minutes for someone to save his job or it’s a case of all good things must come to an end

    St Johnstone v Hibs 09/11/19

    2 up front for 60 minutes you say yesterday? was that at 2 or 3 down?! To even remotely have the stance that 2 up front doesnt work because it didnt work when we are 2 or 3 down is mind boggling. Clearly 451 is the root cause of the defeat, the extra man in the middle for us didn't give Hibs any problem. Play to your strengths, not your weakness, our weakness is defence so let's invite the opposition on, as every time we go forward we lose the ball easily as one man up top has no support. Go all out attack v Aberdeen, dont give them a chance to settle by knocking the ball about the back and picking passes at ease, dictating the play. We dont tackle. High press, and they'll be the team adapting formation not us man marking their team.

    60 minutes of dug shite, I'm not wasting my time watching shit poor defending. 2nd game in 30 years that I have walked out early, where do I go to get a refund for todays ticket, players should have their wages docked. Abysmal. Pop star wannabes. 4 horrendous goals to concede, Christmas is next month for gifts. TW aint going no where he was never offered jobs when successful, doubt he'll get offers just now on last 12-18 months of anti football. Well done TW for playing May alone and isolated, so entertaining!!

    Great win. Thankfully the ref was not conned by the battering ram diving & fouling. He should have been booked in the first half for 3 fouls in 5 mins. McLean & Ichpeezu we're throwing their arms about. Anyway we have to get Ali signed up. There can't be many better midfielder in Scotland. Tommy finally got the formation right. Hopefully not too many injuries to change it. Whole defence were immense tonight . The more they play together the better they will be.

    What, exactly, are you expecting him to come out and say? What message does he send to his players if he comes out and says he shite scared of losing his job because theyve not been performing? Massive pressure on the players as it is, let's heap more onto them, as that's how everyone works best.

    We are not too good to go down at all. Yes we have on paper a great looking attacking midfield and striker but our defence is by far the worst in the league, poorly assembled and simply not good enough. This is why we are not too good to go down!

    https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/opinion/jim-spence/992183/jim-spence-tommy-wright-is-the-man-to-get-st-johnstone-moving-up-the-table/ "JIM SPENCE: Tommy Wright is the man to get St Johnstone moving up the table There have been mutterings of disaffection from some St Johnstone fans about manager Tommy Wright after Saints’ dire start to the season. The club’s current position propping up the Premiership table needs quickly remedied. Wright’s side on paper is equipped to move further up the league but the table doesn’t lie. Without a win in their opening seven league games, and only five goals scored with 18 conceded, it makes grim reading. However, these are early days and Wright is a smart operator who has been over the course before. His team are down but far from out. Saints aren’t isolated, with Hibernian only two points and Hearts just three points, ahead of them. Both of those clubs have budgets which Wright can only dream about, and their plight proves that no club, irrespective of reputation or previous achievements, can rest on its laurels. Restoring Stevie May to his previous full potential, tightening up a defence which needs to deal with set pieces better and ensuring that better possession in games like last weekend’s defeat from Motherwell translates to goals, are all things which need to be addressed. However, some Saints fans who are thinking a change of manager is required should be very careful what they wish for. Managers can’t rest on their record or live on previous achievements, but Wright is doing none of these things. He is going through a tough period, and at times scratching his head as to how to fix things, but his pedigree points to him being able to correct the situation. Knee-jerk reactions in changing managers can have very long lasting and seriously damaging effects on a football club. A miserable period of form, which a team can eventually emerge from given patience, is infinitely preferable to a fashionable change of boss, which can lead to a club rapidly losing its way, and taking years to recover from. The old saying you never miss the water till the well runs dry is very apt. Supporters who think a new man at the helm is the answer might find if their wish was granted that a long period of drought followed, leaving them thirsting for the many good times they had previously enjoyed."
