    How about St Johnstone Globetrotters.

    Saints exiles Flag

    Flag looks great but not sure about "exiles" sounds a bit like a collection of saintees that were banished from McDermaid by Stewart Duff and moved overseas.

    Has our recent success on the field affected the size of our support?

    Living 130 miles from Perth, home games are a trek but its a trek I will be making for the Killie game and John Bonham is making the trek from Edinburgh. Brown cant make people turn up and there's no doubt he could do so much more to encourage by making the right impression but the ambassadors for the club are the supporters it is us who sell the club and the match day experience to friends, work mates and family. Let's encourage everyone we can to attend the Killie game and see if we can awaken the sleeping support.

    Hibs vs Saints 03/11/18 Game 12

    Saints have never lost to Hibs under Neil Lennon, in Tommy we trust.

    Attending matches for many becomes a habit. Once the habit is broken it is very difficult to replicate that behaviour in the future. I think there are a lot of saints fans that have broken the habit and that will be difficult to reverse. There are endless excuses for not attending. I think a large factor is the lack of a strong Chairman. Yes Tommy has had better backing this season but a strong Chairman making the right impression on the fan base and local community would help the overall feel good factor. Some of the public admissions about running the board as a dictatorship and only putting in a couple of half days a week are complete own goals.

    A big part of football is banter and atmosphere, I think the McD layout should be changed to improve both. I would segregate the East Stand giving the away support the red and yellow sections nearest the North Stand. The home support to occupy the rest putting the support together to create a better atmosphere. Old firm get an additional 1000 approx tickets for each game which would pay for a physical openable gate in the the East Stand and outside. Inside a movable tarpaulin like barrier would do so when we need to we could easily open up the whole of the East to home support for our next European games. For the smaller teams a few hundred away fans next to us in the East would make a huge difference to the atmosphere. For Tayside derbies etc having 1000 away fans packed into the yellow and red sections would be magic and something to look for to. That's phase 1 and could be put in place for the start of next season. Phase 2 would be a safe standing area in the Blue section for 500 to 1000 saints fans. That could be paid for from the extra old firm income in year 2 and introduced at the start of the season after next. I am sure the above could be made compliant with health and safety regs etc. There are plenty of examples of split seating areas including both old firm grounds plus Killie and motherwell and Tannadice so it could be done.

    That was a quick rewire job, great transfer window, well done saints. Bums on seats should increase as the offering on the pitch should be so much more entertaining. Looking forward to seeing some brilliant attacking football. Top 6 easily within our grasp, we should fear no one. Tough spell of games coming up but should be exciting. Best team in Tayside by the length of the Tay. It’s been easy to criticise Brown Jnr in the past couple of years so credit where credits due, we’ll done Steve.

    Brown Jnr will need rewired before Tommy gets what he wants. Great signings so far this yr but glaring midfield position needing filled. Hope tics failure to make the group stage tv windfall does not slam shut Browns biscuit tin.

    St.Johnstone v Ross County - Saturday 12th May

    Saints should open the gates 10 minutes from time and let anyone in that can’t manage the game for whatever reason to say one last huge thank you to our departing hero’s.
