    Dundee v Saints 30/12/2018

    Well going to make it after a 43 hour trip from Melbourne. Taking my 12&14 yr olds for their first “live” game, & beleaguered wife. What better way to watch your first Saints game than a win at Dens? If we lose... it doesn’t bare thinking about. Remarkably, the game falls on our 1st Wedding Anniversary & a small celebration organised in Edinburgh. Copped some family grief from sister-in-law... “what’s more important, a football game, or your 1st Anniversary?”. I stayed silent. Responding to that comment is like walking into 20 IED’s. however, bless the wife & she moved it all to Sunday. Better bloody win now... marriage, kids riding on it.

    Absolutely battered them, genuinely must have had about six clear chances at goal. Defence is incredible, Tansers turned into an absolute superstar. I slagged Callachan, comparing him to Paton, but he's made me look like a right fanny there, was like Muzz in his prime. Won every ball in midfielder, got forward, got back, just bullied folk, MOM for me. Spoony and Craig ran themselves into the ground. Kane was perfect for that game too, had a few chances he seemed to rush, but he's just so busy and constantly looking to get in behind. Watt deserved a goal. Three separate instances when he was surrounded by Dundee players and he somehow escaped with the ball, rushed a few efforts, was unlucky with a backheel. Kennedy is incredible, just incredible. Dundee defence was completely shit scared of him, amount of times he ran right at them, and past them, was unbelievable. They restorted to smashing his knees and running studs down his achilles, as there was no other way to stop him. What a team we have here, we'll struggle to keep it beyond this season so folk need to see it as much as they can.

    Muzz's knee injury not as bad as first feared, no structural damage. Happy New year Muzz.

    Nice easy win, dundee are shite, saints must have had 70% possession, really solid all round performance from everyone. Maybe only fault is final touch/finishing, could have had 4+ more, but 2-0 is just fine. Great day out for saints fans, wish i was there.... 1800 reported by dundee TV, huge holiday travelling support, well done all, fantastic effort. Sure a few will be a bit horse after that sing-song!

    Been trying to not comment on this, but I think the poor guy is suffering really badly at present with his known medical condition. I hope that Tommy and co are giving him all the support he needs as there is still a superb player waiting to burst back on the scene.

    It does comply to Lowland requirements we just need to get our entry level licence. We have applied for this and are working towards it although the SFA have thrown a spanner in the works by insisting that floodlighting is mandatory. However there are 3 LL clubs who don't have then and over half of the 17 clubs who have applied for SFA membership this year don't have them either. Its just a case of wait and see. As for next season all we know is there will be a 16 team premier league. The top 5 of each conference are guaranteed a place and the others depend on Lowland league promotion and relegation. 6th place may also be promoted. Below that has yet to be decided. Hope this helps.

    I put my hand up to being critical of Tommy's line up before the game, as it'd been suggested it was 4-6-0. But hard to argue with the line up and tactics the way the game went. Thought a draw would have been fair enough overall, and really disappointing to lose it late on. We seemed to come out a lot more in the second half, which made for a more entertaining game, but I wonder if that opened us up too much and allowed Rangers to create chances. Not going to complain too much though, as we had some great openings ourselves. Zander Clark, Scott Tanser, Murray Davidson, Liam Craig all had decent games, with no real failings. And after thinking he looked like a puppy chasing a ball just running about anywhere for the first 20 minutes, Callachan settled into a good game, and brings a lot of energy to the team. For them, Morelos is head and shoulders above everybody else in their team, with McGregor playing well other than one flap at a cross that conceded a corner. However, Matt Kennedy was the best player on the park. Absolutely brilliant. Shame he was so shattered and had to go offtowards the end, as we lost a lot of our attacking threat. Disappointing result, but no complaints about the effort or performance of the team.

    Again a really outstanding team performance but the unanimous winner in the Highland Saints car as it headed north was Matty Kennedy.

    A word for Liam on his 362nd appearance. Scored a goal & inches away from spectacular 2nd. I think we all thought that he would be a bit part player this season but Tommy couldn't get a holding midfielder & tried Liam in there & he has made the position his own.

    I think you have to remember that this is quite an emotional time of the year for Danny with the anniversary of his pals murder. Maybe he is just trying too hard and putting himself under too much pressure. Plus he was probably rushing to get ready to watch the Edinburgh derby.

    Hello all. Been lurking for a while, time for first post even though I've got nothing to add. Agree with most comments. Was pretty pissed off after the game at what I felt was a half-hearted performance compared to the joys of recent weeks, and it was a game that we should have won. Bit more composed now, and with head rather than heart, looking back it wasn't a terrible performance for most of the game. As has been said shipping 2 early on in those conditions against that Motherwell team is a mountain to climb, and the weather got much worse as the game went on. Can't complain about the fight on display but we're a team of sexy ballers now (apparently) so driving ice-rain ruins our flow, like Hearts did. Think that those saying we were complacent are right and a lot of that was from the central mifield. Something seems up with Murray in the last 3 games, maybe age and years of injuries have finally caught up with him. A worry as there's no obvious cover. We're missing Drey Wright even more than I thought we would. There was no magic from Danny when he came on. He should really be starting now. Also thought Motherwell were very very average (keeper did OK) and the 3 minutes to make 2 subs at the end should be looked at, about as blatant as it gets. Just hope we don't regret that sloppy start yesterday when it comes to top 6 break. Want 7 points before the New Year.

    If I'm picking it up right, then I think it's poor to be honest with you. Matches and additional content about womens/ reserves etc fair enough, but we now have to pay to hear what players and manager say after a game?! A lot of folk already fork out £320 for a season ticket, pay out a lot of money at games, and travelling to away matches, but we only get to hear the full comments about performances from the manager/ players if we pay an extra £60? I think smaller clubs like ourselves have to be careful we don't make information about our club too inaccessible. We should almost be going the other way to keep the club to the forefront of local people's attention. There's plenty of competition for younger folks attention from bigger clubs if we make info harder/ more expensive to access. Possibly too late for this season, but I think season ticket holders/ regular match attenders should get access to all first team related interviews etc for free. Extended match highlights, live games, content on the other squads should be subscription like everyone else. On a positive, I think it's good the club are getting this going.

    Brilliant day from start to finish. 12 hours on the pish and a superb team performance to cap it off. Echo a lot of what's been what's been said! Callachan has been brilliant the past few games, so much energy breaking up the play and loves to drive forward with it which is something Murray and Liam possibly don't do so much. Back four very comfortable, again. Tony Watt toyed with their defence at times, and Kennedy has developed into an absolute standout player, I think he really is having the time of his life. Feels harsh to not mention the whole team though, as Every Saints player dominated his opposite number. If we took that support every week, in terms of numbers and noise, we'd destroy everyone with this team. Imagine that backing at Ibrox and Celtic park, we'd rip the cunts apart! Amazing .. every pub you went into was stowed out with Saints fans partying before and after.

    Calender year form according to a Celtic fan on Twitter. In 2018, as a whole, we've won more away games than any other club in the league, only Kilmarnock have picked up more points, 33 to our 31.

    Saints v Motherwell at home

    Disappointing result and way to end our run. First 15-20 minutes agree with comments that we were too complacent and Motherwell bullied us. They were the better team for the first hour down there but we matched them for fight and kept ourselves in touch to pinch it at the end. We lost the game today in that opening spell, it's very rare to comeback from two goals down in this league, and teams that have something to protect are hard to break down. We played some decent stuff after that at times, and had we scored the penalty I would have fancied us to kick on and get the win. I cannot remember ever missing 4 penalties in a season! That's the first time its cost us points. We need to sort out a reliable taker, as the attacking style we play with players running at defenders, and balls into the box, there's a chance we could get a few more this season. We have already been awarded 6 in 17 matches! Harsh on Alston to only get 5-10 minutes after scoring in consecutive matches, especially when you think we're not exactly banging in loads of goals. Easy with hindsight, but I think if it's two upfront then Kennedy alongside Watt was working brilliantly until Wright's injury, and whilst Matt has still played well the past couple of games out wide, I think we miss his constant involvement and threat he gave through the middle. Felt we waited too long to make changes as well, though we weren't playing poor so I suppose the thinking was something might happen for us. Despite the disappointment, that's still a more entertaining performance than we saw at anytime at home last season, with us creating more chances than in any of those games. We were all crying out for more entertainment and I think that's definitely been the case. Just need to ensure we play from the first whistle in future, regardless of the opposition!
