    Just bought my first season ticket in 18 years, not that i’ll use it much, as it’s a 170 mile round trip to Perth, but it’s amazing what online sales can achieve! Managed to get the same 2 seats that I sat in 25 years ago with my Grandad when he started taking me to Saints games as an added bonus!

    Happy Anniversary

    Happy 5th anniversary, everyone! Here's an alternative version of our cup song Fair Maid, put together by Saints fan Ben Freeman, which includes snippets of Liam McLeod's commentary from the 2014 Scottish Cup semi-final and final. Hope you like it! If you do, it's available for free download at https://theshrugs1.bandcamp.com/releases

    BH, Forest Green are another Gretna with an arrogant owner with cash to splash and outbids teams well above their level. They are also the new media darlings, who seem to ignore their anti-football tactics, which made Tranmere’s victory over them in the playoffs even sweeter.

    OK, so my last post on the matter as it's reminding me of working for a company I hated. These systems in essence are really simple and we should be pleased that we're using it. RFID chip > chip reader > network connection > database. The chip identifies the user. Information associated with user is on the database (e.g. name, seat number, birthday, shoe size ... whatever information you want really). Technically you can put more information on the chip, but that just puts the cost up for no real advantage. There will also be other databases, i.e. McDairmid seating inventory, and sales management tools. If the club want all Ormond stand users, or everyone with size 10 shoes, or whatever, to have access to the Main stand it should be a 5 second job, as should allocating seats as they are sold. All you need to do is change the appropriate data. The data isn't on the card. That would be like saying that all your current account information is 'on' your debit card. Be as sarcastic as you like about 'expert posters', but I have actually specified and bought similar systems and what you have quoted from the club, is, basically, what @garydavidson and I are saying, with some extra stuff about encryption to make people feel secure and reassured. The point is that this is a welcome move from the club and provided they have bought from a decent supplier and have a proper rollout plan, training etc this is very positive move for the club which I'm sure will provide a better fan experience and be a good investment. Also seems to me that they are (sensibly) keeping some human operators at the turnstiles, at least until the system has bedded in, who would be able to manually open the gates if someone's made an arse of the database. So well done Saints.

    Well today saw my lad play his last ever game for saints in a 4 4 draw against St mirren, a young lad scored one John Robertson scored 2 and my lad scored a topbin screamer from 25 yards and set up Johns second with a minute left with some great skill in the box and a lay of to John, the journey has been fun but its now over, I'm not going to give the full story of what's happened this season but a complaint was made by myself as my conscious wouldn't allow me to let it to the young boys for next season, but I received no response from saints, thanks to all who engaged with me over the course of my time on here and the ones that listened to my point of view as an outsider looking in, and didn't abuse me for doing it, Ps number 49 tomorrow for saints one for the future

    Thanks for comments guys and big thanks to Steve McQ for enabling us all to have fun throughout the season. Tend not to post often but enjoy reading the banter. Abernethy - maybe a change of strategy next time - the fast start was good but running out of puff and running up the white flag indicates some warm weather, high altitude training might be beneficial :). sixties and Hoodlum seem to be in a wee world of their own ! 541 - you sure gave me a scare or two ! Looking forward to next season, going off for some warm weather training, beer and ouzo in preparation for a three in a row attempt!.

    It wasn’t a nothing game for those in the Saints end who’d stumped up their hard earned and given precious time to give the team a backing to have that performance served up.Almost feel St.Mirren are due an apology.

    Anyone buying anything other than a pie and bovril at the football should, frankly, be taken out the back and shot. Several hours of torture should be included for anyone even momentarily considering buying some shite with “chorizo” in it. This should be increased to several days torture for those who spend the time in the queue arguing about how to pronounce “chorizo”. I’m willing to consider exceptions for small children, women and other oddities.

    Fair comment was merely advising Bankfoot where the speculation came from. So is this a mutant masking itself as a person or is it a person allegedly in the know or maybe both??

    If he wasn't 'one of our own' and the pre-injury May didn't have such a special place in our hearts then I'm sure Tommy would be slaughtered for considering someone with Stevie's post injury record as the expensive answer to our top striker search.

    May scored less goals than Chris Kane this season - that is in nearly 2000 mins of football - those stats are pretty comprehensive. The poor lad is a ahadow of what he was 6 years ago. I woudl be pretty shocked if Tommy woudl be pursing him.

    True about outside the ground, but allowing it inside legitimises it. I accept also that it's societies problem, but these football clubs are enablers and they profit from hatred. I don't overly care about the content of the singing either, to the extent that it's not part of my life, but I don't want my 10yo hearing it and I don't want sectarianism normalised in my country.

    With the new season ticket card it cannot happen as you would not get entry at the main stand turnstiles. As others have said it would have to be on renewal info pack and a seat allocation in main stand to be put onto card prior to season starting.

    Season Tickets

    Given the lack of saints fans who go to games against the Glasgow teams it makes sense, especially from a financial point of view. Am I happy about having to relocate, no of course not, but for 3 games a season (4 max) in the league, if that extra £200k or whatever it is brings in a 15 goal a season striker and a push up the league then I’ll suffer in silence. Might actually help if all the saints fans are in the same stand as well. Im not sure itll happen as it would need to be announced prior to folk buying season tickets, then again it happened against Celtic in a game we won 2-1 a few years back and I don’t remember that being part of the season ticket pack either?

    Don't know why you think Liam Craig doesn't have the legs for another season. He did well for us this year, and him and Murray (or Callachan) were comfortably superior to the centre midfields of the other bottom six sides in most of the games we played against them this season. (The two poor showings against Accies excluded). If you're saying possibly not good enough to compete with top six sides, then that's maybe more of a valid point. He's only 31, and has been fairly injury free most of his career as far as I know. There seems to be a feeling on here that over 30 and you are finished. Playing the way he did this season, he could do a job for a few years yet.

    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    Well, that was disappointing. First half we played fairly decent stuff, especially down the right, where Spoony and Foster were linking very well. Some good moves which should have been finished off better. By the way, there seem to be a few on this thread suggesting we had no shots on target. We did in the game I was at. Could easily have had a couple in the first half and that wouldn't have flattered us. Second half was very flat, though. After all the good work down the right in the first half, we stopped doing that in the second half and concentrated on the left. That was a real problem. It's very unfair to judge someone making his first competitive start in 18 months, but Beaston was a bit of a problem. He was clearly concentrating on being competent and not making mistakes but it meant there was no creativity or flair there. It was all too slow and ponderous. Their second was a shocker. I'm tempted to make Olly Hamilton my man of the match, if only because he was buzzing about with a real sense of urgency which others lacked. He made some really sharp moves into space but no-one passed to him. It would have been interesting if he'd been there in the first half to pick up some of Spoony's and Foster's balls into the middle. Danny worked hard. A couple of times he worked his way into the box and should have gone for goal but didn't. Danny from a couple of years ago would have had a shot and probably would have scored. Confidence, I guess. This is a frustrating team. It's on the verge of being very good, but doesn't deliver. Again, it seems to be a confidence thing.
