    Plain fact...It's no surprise that Peterhead fans weren't bothered about Craig Thomson's loan spell ending last season as he was playing for Stranraer.

    I see what you're all saying, but all the time we have employed Danny Swanson he has given 100% and delivered on the park, even when he knew he would be leaving. We've lacked goals and creativity, and at times entertainment this season so far, and he brings all of those. I'd prefer he didn't keep going elsewhere, but that's just modern football unfortunately. Players will move around to make as much money for their agents as possible. He's no different from most others in that respect. And the prospect of seeing him and Scougall in the same team is quite appealing to be honest.

    Is this the winter of our discontent?

    These players don’t deserve a foreign trip to sunnier places. what these misfiring inconsistent professionals need is 3 weeks slugging it out in the shit and grime at somewhere like jeanfield park.maybe then we can match and beat Albion rovers away in the cup.

    Well done to the ten men playing seventy mins until the conceded,muzz played his heart out,scougall did some great runs, proud to be a saints fan, unlucky not to come away with anything, thought Dundee were poor and lucky,that's why they brought a defender on McCann was worried until we tired

    I'm beginning to warm up to the idea of the prodigal son's 3rd return. He's certainly creative. Takes a mean penalty and always tries in a Saints shirt. Plus the idea of Swougall is very, very appealing

    The fact that some kids got fined for calling each other mean names in a car park will have zero impact on the sport of football or on my enjoyment of it. In fact if it discourages that sort of stuff it might even create a more welcoming atmosphere for young families, which would be an improvement. I'm all for people singing, chanting, creating an atmosphere, bringing flags and banners, making a noise, supporting the team. If they got fined for doing any of that stuff then I'll completely agree with you, but what's described in that article is just a cringe-worthy embarrassment to Saints.

    What do people expect him to say when his employer puts a camera in front of his face and asks him if he's happy to be there? What the guy says in interviews is totally irrelevant. What would concern me a lot more is the fact that, from what I saw, both his form and fitness looked pretty poor in the latter part of his spell with us. O'Halloran flying at his best would be a major weapon for any side in practically any league - but let's be honest, it's not something anyone has ever seen much of for any prolonged period. I still say Saints have played an absolute blinder in getting half a million quid for him, from a lower league club who couldn't afford it, at a time when he wasn't even playing well, and then on top of that getting him back on loan again, largely at that other club's expense, to (albeit briefly) give us another burst of the form that he never showed for them.

    Even by @RandomGuy standards, this tangent is something else. We have a discussion about a manager probably not doing something on a holiday he probably isn't even on. TW will be working as hard as ever to bring players to Saints, if that's what he believes we need.

    I wonder if Tommy noticed how the crowd got behind the team in the second half when we played attacking football ,rather than the boring negative stuff we have had to endure for the past 18 months that have seen the crowds gradually fade away.

    Im also in the camp that if i didn't have a season ticket i doubt I'd have gone to a few games this year. We've been rank at home for nearly 2 seasons. Our away form has been our saviour but it's gate receipts that pay the bills. Anyway, today. Usual poor defending between Ando and Foster. Rotten. Then Foster doing a foster, losing the plot. We also had a midfield standing off players for the first 45. Usual home tactics. 2nd half we were actually excellent. High press, quick, strong runs and lots of effort. Deserved a point for that but as per usual gave ourselves too much to do. Denny pass marks first half. Scougall, Spoony, Easton and Davidson all good second. Zander also had a great stop from Haber. Ah well, at least the Manager is happy.

    Sounds like County were all over us after they scored. A good point in the long run, midweek games in Dingwall aren't simple. Saturday becomes a bigger game though, three points there is necessary

    We all get frustrated at times when we watch our team and unfortunately sometimes feel like riping into the players but it would be a nice touch if next time cummins plays or comes on as a sub we give him applause and encouragement maby we will see a totally different player

    At tomorrow’s game there will be a bucket collection on behalf of Kinfauns Riding For The Disabled charity. If you ever get the chance to drop by and see the reaction of the youngsters, teenagers and adults with varying disabilities as soon as they get on the horses it would bring a tear to your glass eye. I know it is a very expensive time of the year but every penny helps this great cause and their fabulous volunteers to bring so much joy to so many, so please try and chip in if you can. Thanks in advance.

    He has never been my favorite manager but I think Craig Levein deserves huge praise in having their young players in the team. I know this has been to a certain extent forced upon them due injuries but Levein and his staff have made them match ready extremely well. Maybe we should be less cautious and blood a few more youngsters.

    I have also seen the treatment they get in the ground but none of this is about their behaviour in the ground. They have been exemplary in the atmosphere they have created at home games but they have been idiotic outside that. The grooming from the 'old school' verifies the idiocy. Their behaviour outside the ground and at away games can't be blamed on excessive over stewarding at home games.

    He was there from 6 am waiting on them arriving he then valeted their cars and did their ironing before he went out to training. He washed their backs in showers after training aswell as random says it makes all the difference to a player having such an attentive manager

    No worth a new thread but good to see MoH (goal against Killie) and Alstons (goal at Ibrox) getting nominated as goals of the season so far by two of the BBC pundits... http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/scotland/42554499

    Ibrox latest...

    What I've read into that is basically The Rangers don't have the £1m agreed price for him. So Murphy is there on a 6 month "loan". Once The Rangers have collected next season's season ticket money then they pay Brighton and make Murphy a permanent signing. So actually a shrewd move from Brighton for not allowing a player to move on "credit" so a no pay no stay scenario.Shows just how skint The Rangers really are. According to others they are also relying on next season's ticket sales to finalise payments for a couple of Pedro's dud signings.

    I don't think the Chairman would have even entertained this idea. The cost alone for the club would be prohibitive. Charter an aircraft to Spain, £25k upwards. Rooms in a decent hotel with training facilities for 30players and staff? Paying for all meals and travelling etc etc whilst there for bounce games? This I think would add up to well over £100K..... salaries for 2 decent players over the season? I think I know what I'd be doing if I was chairman. The manager can bump his gums about penny pinching but I cant see justification for holidays like this, although i think TW is griping about money every way he can to try and prise some spondooleys out of that tight grip the Chairman has on the purse!

    I respect the fact that everyone is entitled to an opinion whether it is my opinion or not, however between comments on the forum and comments by fans at the games I feel disappointed with certain aspects. Firstly MOH was on fire on his return until that injury he received at Dens, at no time during his purple patch did I hear anyone doubt his commitment! Ok he hasn’t recaptured his form since his return from injury but give him a break... one player doesn’t make a team, personally I have never thought he isn’t trying rather some games he plays better than others... it can’t be easy when the team is changing every five minutes, to accuse him of not trying appears a bit harsh... in fact the folk who say he isn’t trying sound very much like the bigoted knuckle draggers reported on this very site. Give the guy a break, football is after all a confidence game, detractors certainly won’t be helping... let’s just get behind our wee diddy team...

    Saints v Dundee

    We were much much better in the 2nd half. After the sending off, I think Tommy just wanted to get to half time to sort it out. A better team than Dundee would have piled on and scored a few. Fair play to Tommy, the changes worked. The 2nd half I almost forgot we were a man down. Easton looked like his old self and Gordon looked comfortable. Mature head on young shoulders to take one for the team to pull the Dundee player down on the half way like when they were breaking. Their 2nd you can excuse as we were pushing up and while a silly pass by MOH, it was against the run of play. Although, him being that deep was a feature of the game. Some strange passages of play where he was almost coming back to take the ball off our own players. Scougall looked the part today too. On the downsides, slightly concerned that Zander doesn’t seem to command his box as well as he used too. Spoony for me is a wasted jersey in games like that and Foster, well, he might as well as just kept running up the tunnel to his car and bugger right off. Not great on the pitch, but so often he costs us with stupid decisions. I think he is probably a distributive influence on and off the pitch. Always moaning at the other players. We desperately need to freshen things up. We are way too predicable at the moment. Concerned that we are all pinning our hopes on McMillan who is totally unproven in our league. Hope he is joined by a few others.

    Now is not the time to walk away, the club need the fans more than ever. Yes we are in a dreadful run of home form, but Saints is in the blood surely? I think the break is coming at a good time, some players moving on (good luck to Zippy, nae goals all season then that peach v Sevco! - I wouldn't give Foster a jersey again to be honest...how many chances does the guy need? - He has let his team and the support down time after time. Boxing with comrades, kicking in doors, missing games and handing Dundee a gift in the derby. January gives us a time to recharge and refocus and get McMillan in and hopefully some others - we desperately need some leadership at the back. Many have said on here already we need a Jim Weir, Kernaghan or Wright - totally agree. Start with some clean sheets and we can pick up points. I am glad we have the cup game to look forward to, but we need to start with some energy and spirit if we are to get a victory in Coatbridge. Hopefully Steve's biscuit tin will get opened again in January. Missed Fair City Unity again, crying shame they are not with us at the moment. We are Perth! COYS!

    We shouldn't be having to come out 2nd half and having to have a go! Saints should be starting a game straight from kick off, dictating the tempo and preventing the opposition from scoring....something which we continually fail to do and always leaving us with an uphill task to either equalise or score two to win! Failing to sign a striker at start of season, letting a striker out on loan and if it's true dropping Cummins due to his imminent transfer back to Cork City is not the sign of a club or team prepared in any way, shape or form to go into a match with a hope of winning it, far less a game against rivals who must relish playing against us when they can score and not concede.

    Certainly more enjoyable than some recent games, although the final decision was often the let down, especially in a frustrating final 10 minutes. Enough positives to take out of the performance though: Millar makes a difference, we got another chance to see Scougall centrally, Tanser continues to settle and Alston was heavily involved. Also thought Shaughnessy was very good but eclipsed by Christophe Berra, who was excellent for Hearts. Not sure there is a better centre back in the league. An undefeated end to 2017 would complete a decent first half of the season, even if it hasn't been without its troubles.

    For a 0-0 with few clear cut chances I thought it was quite an open, fairly entertaining game. Certainly compared to our recent home matches. Saints shaded the first half I thought, but Hearts were far better in the second, had good movement and a lot of possession though they only really created that one good chance which the lad (couldn't see who) seemed to miss a bit of a sitter. A lot of Saints fans were screaming a bit of abuse in the last 5 minutes which seemed way over the top. It was frustrating after Hearts went down to 10 men we went far too direct. It was like a panic must get the ball forward immediately mentality which resulted in us creating very little. I would say Hearts look a decent side, certainly the best I've seen them for a while. Lafferty gets away with a lot of cheating, but he is very effective and good at what he does. Overall not a bad point. Other than Joe's poor touch for the goal at Ibrox, our defence has looked fairly solid against two decent opponents. And after our fullbacks were playing poor a month or two back, Foster looks far better defensively, and Tanser is playing very well. Really hope the Millar sub was tactical as Tommy wanted to get the ball forward earlier, rather than an injury.

    For any Saints fans who missed our win at Ibrox, don't believe whatever you read over the next few days about it all being down to Rangers being poor; Saints were brilliant today. The whole team were great, but Chris Millar deserves a special mention in his first game for months. He was outstanding, breaking up play, pressuring opponents, but mostly in his ball retention. At every opportunity he tried to find a teammate. This had a knock on effect as the whole team passed the ball, and had far better constructive possession than I can remember seeing all season. Even when getting the ball under pressure from 2 or 3 rangers players, there was a number of occasions where Midge would spin away from trouble and find a teammate. I remember thinking 2-3 seasons ago that outside Celtic, him and Murray was the best central midfield partnership in the league. On today's performance, again outwith Celtic, i still don't think there's many better central midfielders in the league at winning the ball back and retaining possession. Yes Mcginn and a few others are better creatively and have more of a goal threat, but in terms of what he does, a fit Chris Millar is still right up there. Lets wrap him up in cotton wool now for the fixtures ahead...!
