    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!

    It was a Saints fan who had to choose man of the match (one of us Edinburgh bunch). The company he works for sponsored the game and put it down as him being the match sponsor as a joke. That meant he had to do the half time draw and choose MOM. He tried to choose Kenny Miller as a laugh, but they told him to piss off! Hence his choice of Ralph.

    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.

    Tommy speaking about McIntyre " Jim has a big job on his hands and I think he knew that when he took it on." "HE WASN'T LEFT MUCH TO BE FAIR." Classic Tommy.

    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.

    No bar yet or floodlights yet but that is in the pipeline. New committee taken over this season and looking to make changes to club. Only 1 goes up just now but that all depends if they are licensed. That is something we are working on BTW. Crowds are up a little which is a positive. Finished 2-2 yesterday. Last minute debatable pen recused a point though we did play 70 minutes with 10 men. Still unbeaten in the league though.

    After the late winner did the Saints fans invade the pitch, throw flares, throw coins or toilet rolls, etc.? Naw, didn't think so. It's called celebrating gracefully. Well done to the 483 who made the trip. Onwards and upwards. C.o.y.s.

    Surely, on technical grounds, you are already international?
