    Never fail to be impressed by the way @RandomGuy is so au fait with the inner workings of every club and manager. Who knew about Nigel Pearson's bizarre decision to deliberately fall out with a player. A staggeringly impressive level of knowledge. Certainly looking forward to seeing Watt in action for Saints.

    Ok, trying to do a wee audit here. Saints' Exiles have sponsored today's matchball, captain's armband and contributed to the match day programme (for a reprint of the text, see below). WHO DONATED WHAT Have received donations from those listed below | @john.w / @stanley saint / AN Other please confirm I have you (your son's name) covered EXILE DONATION TICKETS Rob M 22.5 1 Dun W 200 12 Mar T 50 3 Jor W 22.5 1 Ste Z 22.5 1 Jas C 22.5 1 Jos M 40 2 Chr G 10 1 DunM 20 1 Bri S 20 1 Mar C 25 1 Tom P 50 3 505 MATCH BALL DRAW Tickets means how many times your name will go into the draw to keep the match ball. 20-25 = 1 ticket, and then I've roughly pro-rata'd that up for those who contributed more. I will get all the names into Excel and run the RAND() function to pick a winner. I'll film it live on Twitter, this week. PROGRAMMES Anyone who wants a programme should PM/Send their name/address to me. I have requested 10 from @The ghost of Jim Morton - I will use the outstanding £5.00 (have paid Ghostie £500 by cheque) for the postage cost to get him to send down the Programmes. If you want a programme I will send them out, at my cost to you. REPRINT OF THE MATCH DAY PROGRAMME MESSAGE ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Saints’ Exiles Club – the diaspora of fans outside Scotland - are proud to sponsor today’s match ball, and wish to congratulate Chris on his well-deserved Testimonial match. The Exiles were founded by Seaman Captain John Marnoch when around fifteen Saintees met up to watch St Johnstone in a cup match from the Sports Cafe pub in London sometime in the mid-2000s. Today’s captain’s armband is sponsored in recognition of John “Captain Marnoch” who recently passed away. He is responsible for the Exiles’ POTY efforts over the past few years and is fondly remembered as the only person to receive TWO bans from WAP forum! Contributions for today’s sponsorship came from as far afield as arctic Northern Canada, Australia, and the Falkland Isles. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THANKS Well done @sixties saintee for being the one who actually got all this going, and made it happen. As always, huge thanks to @The ghost of Jim Morton @The Inspiration enjoy your day, god bless @AthensSaint @PanamaSaint @SingaporeSaint and any other astroturf accounts - we miss them all MON THE SAINTS!

    Player Contracts + Transfers

    I'm pretty confident we'll bring in one or two by the end of the transfer window, but not sure about doing it in time for the first league game. I think we'll end up with a couple of loan signings similar to when we signed Williams and Willock. What I find unusual about Saints' approach to signing is that we fairly regularly seem to get into these situations where we have players openly targeted, and sometimes even on trial, and yet then suddenly the manager says he can't sign anyone. Does Tommy not know what the budget is? What has changed, or is expected to change, that meant we could sign these players, then couldn't, but the expectation is that we soon will be able to again? If it's the Watt signing, surely Tommy would have been told "if we meet this guy's demands then we might not be able to bring anyone else in" and then it would be Tommy's call on whether or not to proceed with that? Just feels a little like the left arm doesn't know what the right arm's doing at times.

    I have tha ball, signed by midge and firmly in my possession. Also signed programmes. The captains armband is also secured but it needs to go out to be embroidered with some extra bits and pieces.. I hope to have it back before I go on holiday and when I get it I will post photo of it.. I thought the tribute to John and the write up about the exiles in the programme was excellent. On behalf of Chris, the testimonial committee and myself I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made this possible..

    Berwick away

    Good exercise in fitness, with the players monitored throughout the game. In terms of style, I think the proof will be in the pudding, I still thought we lacked a control without Millar or even Wotherspoon in the midfield. We raced ahead because we went at Berwick but once we had that lead, I thought we were more direct than I'd have liked and than the manager is suggesting. Wary of taking too much out of it in terms of invididuals but: Liam Gordon impressive again. Talks and organises, strong in the air and good on the ball. Hope he gets a chance early on. Ali McCann isn't of an age where he'll dominate a game but I've liked what I've seen of him so far. Maturing physically as well. Not sure he's quite ready for a loan in an ideal world but you are already worrying about how much he will develop in this new reserve league. I daren't mention the SM word after a friendly against a (poor) League Two team but Tony Watt looks to have that unpredictability about him. You aren't always sure how he emerges with the ball but he does. Linked up pretty well with David McMillan for a first appearance, could have had a hat-trick and played his role in the other two early goals. For his part, McMillan again encouraged you. I think he will be fine with his back to goal and he played as a lone striker for Dundalk (seen some question his ability to do so) so all in, I think even allowing for the departure of MacLean, we look better off in the striking department than a year ago. Callum Hendry is part of that as well and looked lively. Assuming Hurst is up to standard, Hendry needs to get out on loan and play games. Aaron Comrie and Drey Wright showed a willingness to try and former a partnership down the right. Hope there will be an end product with Wright, who will look to get beyond full backs. Comrie wasn't tested defensively, which is where my main concerns with him lie and neither was Mark Russell, who looked prone to maybe taking a touch too many in dangerous areas. Going forward he looked willing but very hard to make any sort of judgement on him or Dean Lyness. Usual spate of subs from both teams in the second half (including a first look at Cammy Ballantyne at this level) but of most interest was maybe Kyle McClean. Came on in his usual role and again, didn't really stand out for me, but when McMillan went off he became more advanced and caused Berwick problems. He scored the fourth and could easily have had a hat-trick. Again, only pre-season, and he missed out on Sunday presumably through injury, but Blair Alston didn't really take an opportunity to show he should be playing centrally. The manager might be thinking along those lines but does he have the composure or defensive tenacity to play a deep central role? We can hopefully progress from our League Cup group whilst still learning a bit more about the squad over the next couple of weeks.

    He's not advocating bringing him back, he's saying we need a player in the centre of the park and I agree with him. We've spent a decade with the quality of Morris or Millar in front of the defence but I don't see a player in the squad who is capable of stepping into that role. Can Wotherspoon play it? Maybe but would anyone argue that he isn't inconsistent, which isn't ideal for such a key area on the pitch. He has a role to play in the team but I'm far from convinced it's the one the manager maybe has earmarked for him.

    Jesus H Christ AS, it's like you have been brainwashed by some mysterious cult or you have some strange mental block. Way against my better judgement I am going to try one more time: I AM NOT AGAINST SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE. If I could truly believe that an independent Scotland would be financially better off than it is today, and therefore bring extra benefits to the people of Scotland, I would be down at the voting booth putting my cross in the YES box - and so would every other Scot. The big stumbling block is even you have admitted that this cannot be guaranteed. One example: I think I remember that during the last campaign we were told that every Scot would be £700 a year better off, but on the eve of the referendum the man who had spent his entire political career getting to that point couldn't even tell us what currency we would be using. How can you carry out financial forecasting without taking into account which currency would be involved? My whole complaint is that the SNP have abandoned any hope of convincing people that we are heading for a land of milk and honey, and instead are attacking anyone and anything remotely connected to England and the Tories. (You do remember this started with your "Home Nations" complaint). The National is just another example of this obsessive and monotonous drive to alienate Scots against the rest of the UK, in this instance forsaking any attempt at journalistic integrity. (Can you honestly say the childish tweeting of a minor political figure in Ayrshire is more relevant than the tragic and mysterious death of a 6 year old girl?) Please, please, please don't reply with "whataboutery". I know the NO campaign produced more sh!te than a herd of cows with diarrhea. I am a proud Scot and I want the best for Scotland - everybody else is getting independence doesn't necessarily mean being independent is the right move for us at the moment.

    Was driving the A9 this evening, Inveralmond to Broxden section and seen the new slip was open so went for a drive on this new road, round past the back of the away stand onto Crieff Road. Was only open to cars leaving the A9, but a highlight was seeing into the East Stand, good view. Also nice to see blue colour fencing, must have been a planning permission commitment.. That's all.

    This is the sort of rubbish that absolutely destroys the credibility of the Independence argument. People see this and think "if this is the level of debate then I'm not interested". Home Nations has been used as a term for the countries of the UK (and occasionally Ireland) in all sorts of sporting competitions for years - probably before the BBC came into existence. Your last sentence is ridiculous. "Home Nations" refers to ALL the countries of the UK. Belgium are playing England. Ii would be like referring to a Saints v Aberdeen game as Tayside Clubs v Aberdeen. Please try and find some legitimate grievances to support the Independence campaign.

    This close season I have come to the conclusion that despite what is always being said about Saints in the media and by rival fans alike, we are not a well run club! A well run business maybe, but a well run professional, Scottish Premiership club? No, not by a long shot.

    I think the fact that Tommy made a move for McGowan a while back, probably tells you he is aware he needs a replacement for Millar. Neither Alston or Spoony have shown they can play the same role as him with the same effectivness. Spoony shows he may be an option is spells, but he must do more to become a regular starter in the middle of the pitch. A left sided midfielder and a central midfielder and I'd be happy enough with the squad.

    Indeed! In the (old) Div.2 on 25/04/59 Walker scored the only goal of the game. No attendance figure available. Team= Taylor, McFadyen, Reid, Brown, Valentine, Ewen, D.Liddell, Walker, McInnes, Gillespie, Carr.

    Feel sorry for East Fife fans, tbh, I couldn't even bring myself to celebrate any penalty, utterly soul destroying stuff. 90 minutes against a team two divisions below, with no attackers missing, and we didn't even force the keeper into a save. Wotherspoon had an absolute nightmare, regularly tripping over the ball, thankfully his playmaking duties were taken over by Liam Craig though, who turns into a left footed Paton in the middle. Scougall seems to get swallowed up by the game and exerts absolutely no influence at all. Full backs contributed absolutely nothing going forward, Tansers only positive is his crossing and it was vile, Foster was his usual "punt ball to nobody, scream at closest person" player. McMillan doesn't look impressive at all, second touch is always him stretching to recover from his poor first touch. A worrying game, have to hope it's just rustiness.

    World Cup 2018

    Having a bit of a lazy day, but anyone else notice the russian and saints logos? their eagles have crowns and jewels though Russian imperial eagle, Saint Petersburg In heraldry and vexillology, the double-headed eagle is a charge associated with the concept of Empire. Most modern uses of the symbol are directly or indirectly associated with its use by the Roman/Byzantine Empire, whose use of it represented the Empire's dominion over the Near East and the West. The symbol is much older, and its original meaning is debated among scholars. The eagle has long been a symbol of power and dominion. The double-headed eagle motif appears to have its ultimate origin in the Ancient Near East, especially in Hittite iconography. It re-appeared during the High Middle Ages, from circa the 10th or 11th century, and was notably used by the Byzantine Empire, but 11th or 12th century representations have also been found originating from Islamic Spain, France and the Serbian principality of Raška. From the 13th century onward, it became even more widespread, and was used by the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum and the Mamluk Sultanate within the Islamic world, and by the Holy Roman Empire, Serbia and Russia within the Christian world. Used during the late Byzantine Empire as a dynastic emblem of the Palaiologoi, it was adopted during the late Medieval to Early Modern period in the Holy Roman Empireon one hand, and in Orthodox principalities Serbia and Russia on the other, representing an augmentation of the (single-headed) eagle or Aquila associated with the Roman Empire.

    Sod that. The England team seem a decent set of lads playing honest football, the Columbia game aside. They arnt that good, but it’s not their fault the way the draw worked out. However, if they win the thing, we will NEVER hear the end of it, and worse still, it will become part of the whole Rule Britannia, Brexit, green and pleasant land type shyte for YEARS. I hope England get absolutely pumped, in the most humiliating manner possible.

    Been a great, if somewhat tiring day, as part of the Chris Millar testimonial committee with Chris's match against Aberdeen. Was a very successful day with a decent turnout and quite a good match to boot. I would like to thank a few people on behalf of Chris for their help today. Gav Stewart, Darlene Macdonald, Garry Bannerman, Brian Cooper and Betty Young for their help selling raffle tickets prematch. And also to Brian from Aberdeen who did the Dons gate. The raffle was a great success. Also like to thank all my fellow committee members who have worked tirelessly over the last few months to get the game organised. Thanks to Saints for their work and to the staff at McD for the great hospitality today. To Paul Smith who just works and works and gets stuff done. To all the Saints fans who attended today and gave Chris their support. Thanks to the decent Dons support that turned up as well. Thanks to Roddy Grant, Frazer Wright Paddy Gregg, Biscuits, Kano, Nathan Lowndes, Crofty, Dave Mackay and Danny Griffin for giving their time up to take part in the half time penalty shoot out.. Finally to the Saints exiles for their match ball sponsorship in memory of the late Captain John ( Singapore Saint) Marnoch. The game finished 2-2 but on a day like this, that was probably the least important thing that happened. Been braw.. well apart fae Chris Millar bubbling like a bairn during his speech at the end.. lolololololo MAN UP MILLAR..

    Yes, if the offence took place in play. The “it was going out anyway” defence is bollocks. Im a little worried that every team who could conceivably beat England is getting knocked out. I’m awaiting today’s news that the French team have been struck by lightning, and the Croatians have a mystery virus. God is either an Englishman, or, as is far more likely, is a Scotsman/woman who is simply setting the fans of England up for a fall.

    World Cup 2018

    Really interesting to hear the English pundits' response to the headbutt on Henderson - it was certainly a foul but Henderson's reaction was disgraceful and yet that wasn't even mentioned. ITV could really do with a non-English pundit (Bilic) when they cover England games - it would make their coverage so much better. It's largely been a good World Cup but to some extent it's been ruined by the reaction VAR has had on players. They're throwing themselves around and being aggressive towards refs even more than in previous years. I personally feel that FIFA need to do something about this before the next major tournament and make it a yellow card offence to over-react to be being fouled, regardless of whether or not a genuine foul has occured. I also think when a free kick or penalty is awarded there should be a time limit on taking it and any players still being disruptive after that time limit has elapsed should be booked. In Colombia's case I find their approach inexplicable because they're a good enough team to beat England yet for some reason chose to spend the game niggling and moaning instead of creating and attacking. In the end they got what they deserved. I'm no fan of England but I do like Southgate - he seems like a good guy and he's doing an exceptional job with what is an incredibly mediocre squad.
