    Saints vs Dundee 25/08/18

    Yes, definitely speak to Watt about a contract extension now. He is a class act, and it is genuinely hard to think of many better strikers in this league just now. Agree with comments about Liam Craig, he came onto a game and was outstanding. I thought the first half was very open and entertaining.. Dundee had a lot of possession, but we always looked a threat going forward and created the better chances. After we pushed our wide players and Watt onto their defenders at goal kicks, Dundee had absolutely no plan b as they stopped getting as much comfortable possession. The second half was strange, Saints were so comfortable and it was as if Dundee gave up really early. Thought Kerr looked excellent, and Kennedy had a good game and was constantly involved, though his delivery into the box was very poor. Thats two home matches that I've really enjoyed, and I can honestly think I've seen more entertaining football at McDiarmid this season already than I did all last season. Keep it up Saints!

    I don't buy this stuff for a second. You guys think that if Rangers, or Aberdeen, or any English Championship/League 1 side had dangled a bigger salary in front of his nose on deadline day that he'd have chosen Saints? Absolutely no chance. Not that it matters now, of course - he's ours and I'm very much looking forward to seeing him back in a Saints shirt - but after the way he's twice ditched us in the past let's not all pretend he's got some sort of massive loyalty to Saints.

    My first game of the season and I can honestly say I enjoyed that encounter better than any home game I watched last year. Great performance all round including Zander who is growing in confidence every week. Our center backs looked mobile and comfortable - Kerr is huge star in the making. I liked the impromptu role Craig picked up after Muzz headed - perhaps we have found a nice wee role for our accomplished "journeyman". Foster looks so much more mobile this early in the season. Kennedy looks like he can play a big part for us this season although some of his final ball was 'cat' yesterday. Man of the match was Tony Watt. What a piece of business to get him here. Never really realised he is such an accomplished forward - strong, skillful, very intelligent and deadly when he gets a sniff. He will score loads of goals for us. Reminds me of another great Saint striker from back in the day - Jim O'rourke. I thought the Saint support warmed to the task yesterday and by game end we were all giving it large - good things to come so lets start spreading the gospel - we have a tidy team and well worth getting up to McD to watch.

    Wasn't able to attend this match on Saturday but watched the full 90 minutes on Alba. A very encouraging performance again. We have much more energy and pace in the team and you feel that we could score whenever we come forward. We look much more comfortable in possession and in Kennedy, Wright, McMillan and Watt we have several outballs, stopping us from being stuck defending for big chunks of games like I felt was a feature last season. Alston was our best player for me. At times in the second half I felt he was our entire midfield as he was popping up everywhere. The biggest compliment I can think to give him is to say that we haven't really missed Davidson over the last couple of games. I hope we go to Ibrox next week and play without fear. We are good enough to impose ourselves on Rangers playing our own game and hopefully Wright has the confidence in his players to let them do exactly that. There's a swagger about this team that I've not seen for quite a while and I'm loving watching them play so far.

    100% correct. Last season was brutal. I'm amazed at the transformation in entertainment, just the Hibs game was more entertaining than the whole of last season. Every time we go forward we do with purpose and look like we'll score on any attack. Good playing surface yesterday helps. Next game cant come quick enough as we'll only get better

    Reserve League News 2018/19

    The new SPFL Reserve League gets underway today, with Saints away to Dundee. The game is at Links Park and kick-off is at 2:00pm. The first home game is against Queen of the South next Monday afternoon and that is the regular slot for matches. There are 18 clubs, playing each other just once (17 games) and the season runs until mid-April. There is also a new Reserve League Cup competition to create more fixtures. Fixtures: https://spfl.co.uk/admin/filemanager/images/shares/pdfs/SPFL Reserve League Fixtures_WEB.pdf The hope from the authorities is that clubs will use more experienced players alongside younger players but the proof will be in the pudding on that score. Saints U20s finished 11th of 14 teams in the Development League last season and will again be a young squad I sense, with only one 1999-born player and one 1998-born player on the books. I'll need to check and see if there are specific rules about overage or underage players, unless anyone knows for sure? From last season, Ben Quigley, Jack Wilson, Ciaran Brian, Euan O'Reilly, Cameron Ballantyne, Jamie McKenzie and Shaun Struthers will form the core of the squad, along with Ross Sinclair and John Robertson who are both eligible for the new U18s team. Alan Maybury has taken over control of the team from Alec Cleland and his options will be supplemented by a new intake of former U17 players including but not limited to: Gregor Donald, Jordan Northcott, Kyle Green, Kyle Woolley and Olly Hamilton.

    A pretty good performance on Saturday, with a wee bit of luck we might have got all the points; it's a measure of the direction we are going in that we were confident about getting something from this game and this came to pass. At the half time kick about with the sub players warming up I counted all the guys who could have easily be starting on Saturday and remarked that we now have a seriously strong squad; when some of these players are going to get a start is anybody's guess as long as we are playing like this but it's a great place to be. On a side note, when I left the Muirton suite after a quick pint after the game I met Muzz outside and I asked him how he was coming along and he told me he would be back at full training a in a couple of weeks which is great news - I thought we might not see him this side of Christmas.

    I am in the process of organising a suitable date with Joss to present the Ball and the embroidered captains armband John. We had a provisional date but Joss was unable to attend as something came up. In conjunction with new communications guru at Saints, Gary Henderson, we are going to get some photos and the club will run an article on it. Once I know a solid date I will let you guys know..

    There is certainly something off, but I just can't see in any way what so ever how he wouldn't have been a better option than McMillan in the 10 role last Saturday. He has vision and now when we finally get players in the team with good movement it seems he is no longer needed. I'd argue Wright's persistence in putting him wide rather than giving him a run centrally has been the biggest issue.

    I couldn't disagree with you more. Scougall is a player I think has a great work rate and regularly fights to regain possession. I really hope these are just rumours, as Scougall has the potential to be a great player for us. Especially with two wide men moving forward for him and Watt's footballing brain.

    https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/st-johnstone/726641/tommy-wright-will-never-criticise-st-johnstone-players-for-being-honest/ Wright doesn’t have any problem with the player Callachan replaced at half-time, Liam Craig, in the wake of a verbal spat in the changing room. “There was nothing to kiss and make up about,” he said. "It was all gone after the game. “Players who have played under me will tell you as soon as something happens it is over and it is forgotten about. “Maybe other managers might have said Liam had picked up a knock or he was on a yellow card. But I would rather tell the truth when I’m asked a direct question. “I don’t see any point in lying. That’s when rumours start.”

    You lost me completely when you said Anderson was the softest centre half in football. You could criticise him for charging about a bit, or maybe the occasional howler, but softest? ****ing hell, seriously.

    Miller & Wallace win their appeals to SPFL against Sevco. Sevco say they are "surprised". Presumably because the SPFL usually side with them.

    It appears the 3 retired refs could not agree about McGregor's kick so no action. One probably said Red Card, the second Yellow and the third "no surrender".

    Danny went to hibs because it's his team and who can blame him we would all do the same, but he does talk highly of saints and says Tommy and him speak regularly even in his period at Hibs aye money talks as it is a job, but saints are the club he wanted to come to if the hibs dream burst. Bulletproof has certainly backed Tommy this time and the squad looks fantastic, if being really greedy I would have liked another left back! The season ahead has now got a whole new feel to it compared to where we were last year.

    Jeez, you guys are useless. I had to google myself to see where Calum has gone on loan to.... I think Brechin will be great for him. Always liked them, and I've come to think of them as one of our feeder clubs. Darren Dodds is a Saints legend, not always for the best reasons. I think Calum's going to be a club hero in 18 months to 2 years time. Best of luck to him. Playing and scoring for Brechin will do him the world of good.

    Can’t afford to hold grudges. He left for more money (and to join his boyhood club). He’d bring 5-10 goals and as many assists. More than Scougall.

    Liam Craig, btw. We've needed someone to step up and he's done it, today with Muzz going off early we really needed him to step up, and that's exactly what he did. Didn't give Dundee an inch in our half and just reads the game so well.

    Celtic Allocation for Betfred Cup

    Putting aside the timing of the allocation discussion, the main problem with moving Saints fans is they've shown in the past it really pisses them off. Some stopped going and apparently haven't been back. Doing it again is just showing a complete disregard for the supporters and is likely to alienate even more. Instead of selling out, Saints should be using a home quarter final to find ways to get some of the missing fans back.

    Celtic Allocation for Betfred Cup

    Absolute nonsense 1) there won’t be anything near 7000 fans, Celtic will get there usual 4500 - as it’s a cup game and not in the season ticket book you’ll be lucky if there is 1800 paying home fans there - 2) “ give them the more tickets to make a few bob more “ . Would rather see a half empty stadium. It’s a bonus match for the club in terms of revenue anyway . It will be on the tv too so already made extra cash People need to start realising we’re not a diddy we championship side desperate for cash to stay afloat. We should be playing this game to win and get through not selling our soul and giving Celtic 3/4 of the stadium Embaressed people would even consider it - we have too many small club menatality fans

    They made 6 changes to the team who beat BSC the previous week but take nothing away from us they were still a quality side who will be challenging for promotion to League 2 this season. Those who came in still had plenty of League 1 & League 2 experience.

    Give them the normal. I get the idea of maximising the cash, but for me, I'd take every advantage we have, however small it may be. Also, to give up so much of the stadium for cash just makes us look diddies. Imagine being a saints player and walking out to your home stadium full of away fans? Would knock you down straight off for that game, but also would just create an impression on players and everyone out with the club of us being tight and amateur for subsequent games. I'd rather 3000 empty seats rather than an extra 3000 Celtic fans. We all hated the days we gave them 3 stands, I certainly did.

    If we are going to get them then at home in QFs as good as any. Should be a decent crowd if not on telly & if it is then a few Bob anyway. Home fans will be moved from family to East if not on telly. We have had this debate & East stand fans will not be moved.

    Celtic Allocation for Betfred Cup

    When I bought my ticket after the game on Saturday there were people who were neither season ticket holders or on database they were filling in a form to be put on database so therefore absolutely no need for anyone to miss out on tickets for this game. There may be a problem if someone is not willing to give their information to the club but that is the law nowadays regarding data protection. As I said absolutely no reason for missing out as long as you are able to drag your arse up to the ticket office.

    A victory today could see us continue our impressive record of getting opposition managers the sack. It’s not really a compliment (“we didn’t mind losing to Forres Mechanics in the Cup, but now you’ve lost to St Johnstone, that’s unacceptable, get your things together”). Seeing the back of that wee shyte McCann would be pretty satisfying.

    Celtic Allocation for Betfred Cup

    I've been to many games against both sets of bigots but stopped when they started selling sectarianism. I prefer my football without 17th century Ireland and terrorists being celebrated these days. From what we've been told it looks like I'm far from the only Saints supporter with that viewpoint. I just find it a sad reflection on where football is that many people's first reaction to this draw has been how can we screw as much money out of Celtic fans as possible instead of we're at home in a quarter final tie, we've done well against them in League Cup ties, we've got Tony Watt scoring again and he'll probably be keen to score against his team, we've a more attacking line up that could cause their far from perfect defence problems and hey, we've actually got not too bad a chance of beating them. Give Steve Brown his due. He's certainly done a great job at managing fans expectations and and priorities.

    First game of the season for me. Lots of positives. A decent performance and, in the end, a good win. Tony Watt in the flesh is a big fecker. You wouldn't pick a fight with him. He's got a lot of presence. He's definitely one of those players you're glad is in your team, because he will do things which turn matches. And, boy, he covers some ground. I thought the referee was an equal opportunities fud - crap decisions both ways - but really Queens could have brought on a tractor and ploughed Matty Kennedy into the ground and he still wouldn't have given a foul. It may sound odd, given we scored four goals, but I'm not sure we'll score that many this season. We play nice football but, Watt apart, the killer instinct needs to be sharpened. Liked the look of Matty Kennedy. Gives his all, some neat touches, involved all the way through. Well worth the twelve hour round trip.
