    Motherwell v St Johnstone 30/3/2019

    I must be an old stonker now didn't get an invite this year.

    Know one likes us we don't care.

    Plenty of folk haven't liked us over the years but also seems even more folk don't know us. Question on Pointless at teatime last night including Saints. 100 folk asked which town/City do the following football teams come from: Ajax, Aston Villa, Everton, Fenerbache, Flamengo, Juventus, St Johnstone. Points scored were, Amsterdam 27, Birmingham 51, Liverpool 59, Istanbul 10, Rio De Janeiro 7, Turin 18, Perth 7. Pretty shocking result in 135 years of marketing the team with Perth. Always thought a lot more could be done to link Perth with St Johnstone. We don't have to change the name to Perth St Johnstone but the club and the City could do a lot more together to promote the St Johnstone brand and our home The Fair City. To be honest I was surprised we even got 7, definitely an opportunity here for joint promotion of City and Club. Just wonder if relations between Club and City could be better. As much as I respect our history I would also be very proud to wear Saints casual wear etc that was Perth St Johnstone themed.

    Saints v Saints 16/3/2019

    Last night's 3 points means we cant finish bottom. That's a relief. Highly unlikely we will finish in the bottom 3. A lot of league position cash to play for berween now and the end of the season. Team will be under pressure to get as many points as possible as bonus money will depend on league position. Currently averaging just one goal a game which is anti entertainment. Ability to score more than once in a game has deserted us. Need to find the net again and regain some confidence as we must not carry current form into next season. Season ticket sales will be brutal unless fans have something to get excited about before the end of the season. There is every chance we could end up being the team to relegate one of the bottom 3 although expect bottom place to come from current bottom 2. 3 months ago the door was open to top 4, door is now open to bottom 4. Saturdays game is massive, we can't control what Hibs do on Friday we just need to keep winning. The situation with our Captain has not been handled well, he should be dropped. Clearly not going to be here next year so stick him in the reserves now and give Gordon a run. The FCU has been a huge loss, could really do with a big vocal backing and decent atmosphere v Dundee next week, average fan age in East Stand has shot up this year, we need to find a way to get the young team back or another generation of supporters will be gone for ever which is soul destroying.

    Saints v Saints 16/3/2019

    Managed a chefs special with a bum stinging vindaloo sauce after the Hamilton cup game after a few beers in the Royal. Might have to settle for an Egyptian Kebab. The wee shrinking man needs his holidays, will catch up with him next time. Top 6 still a chance but last chance saloon on Saturday. If we don't get there sticking it to Dundee will be braw. I just have a feeling this is turn around game.

    Use Of The Barossa St Function Hall And Lounge

    There has been an increasing number of enquiries for the hire of the function hall at Barossa ST. so I thought it would be good to post how to book it. The function room holds about 100 seated and when you open it up into the lounge it is about 160 seated. For the comedy night last Friday we seated 160 in the hall itself by adding additional seats on the dance floor. If you want to use the function hall and /or lounge for a event then it is easy to book. The first thing to do is to ask at the bar to see the diary. The diary holds all the events that are booked at the club. If there is nothing on ,on the day of your planned event simply put your name and contact details in the diary and state what the function is and how many it is for. It is best to let Ian the head steward know what you are planning as well. You then need to fill in an event form,these are kept behind the bar and it is basically a request to use the function hall for an event. Unless they know you well you may be asked to pay a refundable £50 deposit. The £50 is refunded in the event there is no damage on the night. If there are at least 1 barossa St member in attendance for every 10 guests then you do not need a licence for the event. If there are not 1 in 10 members to guests you may need a licence. It costs £10 and will be arranged by the club. Again speak to Ian he will keep you right. The good thing is there is no charge for hiring the function room/lounge. I believe it is free to members and free to others that apply to use it although they may need a £10 licence. The function room is booked out most saturdays for the clubs own saturday night dances.. You can still book it on a Saturday but they will only consider that if it is a major event that will bring in a full house and significant bar takings. The most popular night for functions is a Friday. Catering can be provided at a cost or you can arrange your own. Again that is something to talk to Ian the head steward about. The club also have contacts with various bands and entertainers so that is something they may also be able to help you with. The more functions we get on,the higher the clubs turnover which will have a beneficial effect on what we are trying to do at Barossa St to support saints. If you have not used the club before and would like to have a look round , please just go along and you will be shown round. Between the bar.lounge and function room the club can cater for 280 people so there is plenty of scope for a decent sized event. It is a really good venue for an event and its town center location makes it easily accessible. If you are thinking about holding a function and need a venue then why not give it a try.

    Super saints 10 year of success

    This is our 10th year in the top division. In that time 18 clubs have been the league, 19 if you count 2 from Govan. Of those 18 only 5 have been in for all 10 years, Saints, Celtic, Aberdeen, Motherwell, Killie. 10 year league table up to kick off today looks like this. Celtic 861 pts, Aberdeen 570 pts Saints 504 pts Motherwell 490 pts Killie 434 pts RFC Combined 432 pts Hearts 426 pts DUFC 372 pts ICT 354 pts Hibs 306 pts Ross County 260 pts St Mirren 232 pts Hamilton 210 pts Partick 205 pts Dundee 182 pts Dunfermline 55 pts Falkirk 31pts Livingstone 30 pts Amazing record, we don't get a fraction of the credit we deserve.

    In 10 years we have scored in the first 10 minutes 32 times and conceded in the first 10, 43 times. ( previously reported as 33 and 44 but on drilling down there were 2 duplicates). So what did these early goals mean. The first analysis is amazing, in the 32 games where we scored first we went on to win 21 of those games, draw 10 and only loose once. The loss was to Kilmarnock on 18/10/14 where Murray scored in 10 minutes and Magennis replied in 19 & 22. This is an incredible achievement. Where we have lost the first goal in 10 minutes we have actually won 5 of those games, drawn 10 and lost 28. Again this in incredible, whereas we have managed to turn around an early goal 5 times all other teams in the top flight have only managed to turn us around once. Games we turned it around were: 15/9/12 Celtic scored in 4 minutes, we scored in 8 and 80. 5/4/14 Killie scored in 5 mins we replied in 31 & 44. 7/11/15 Killie scored in 2 mins and we replied in 23 & 49. 7/5/16 Well scored in 4 mins and we replied in 34 & 45. 16/12/17 New Gers scored in 5 mins and we replied with 3 goals in 10, 61 & 71. This says everything about 10 fantastic years, we can turn it around when we loose an early goal but only once in 10 years have another top flight done a saints to us. Here's looking forward to our next early goal.

    Super saints 10 year of success

    In the 10 years in the Top Division so far we have played 368 games. We have conceded 456 goals loosing on average 1.239 goals per game. Of goals against we lost 217 in the first half and 239 in the second. Breaking that down further, goals against in the first 30 minutes = 142 , 31.14%, 2nd 30 minutes, goals against 133, 29.17%, 3rd 30 minutes, goals against 181, 39.69%. This clearly shows that it is the last third of games where we loose most goals. However, the worst period overall is the last 10 minutes plus added time at the end of the second half where we have lost 81 goals or 17.77% of all goals against. An interesting example of this was a game at Parkhead in season 2010 /11 where we held Celtic nil nil at 90 minutes only to loose 2 nil to 2 added time goals. 1-10 minutes, against 44 = 9.65% of total. 11-20, against 50 = 10.96% 21-30, against 48 = 10.53% 31-40, against 50 = 10.96% 41-45, against 21 = 4.6% First half added time, goals against 4 = 0.88% 46-50, against 12 = 2.63% 51-60, against 46 = 10.09% 61-70, against 54 = 11.84% 71-80, against 46 = 10.09% 81-90, against 62 = 13.6% 2nd half added time, against 19 = 4.17% Figures show that goals lost is spread pretty evenly across all 10 minute periods except the last 10 minutes plus added time. How many of these goals in the last 10 minutes were match winners I don't know. One really interesting fact is our strongest period defence wise across the 10 years has been added time at the end of the first half. We have only conceded 4 goals in first half added time and remarkably they were all in one season, 2010/11. We also concede relatively few goals in the first 5 minutes after half time, only 12 in total and 3 each of those were in seasons 2009/10 and 2016/17. Our defensive record over the 10 years has been fantastic. A superb effort from the team which has a major bearing on our success.

    You might be surprised at the stats. Difficult to argue that loosing an early goal is always difficult to recover from and some goals scored by the opposition in the last 10 minutes are sometimes just consolation goals. Actually statistically the first 10 minutes is where we concede the least % of goals in any 10 minute slot apart from combining the 5 minutes either side of half time. Will post some stats on the affect of the early away goal in due course but in the meantime stats to follow on goals against. Makes interesting reading.

    In the 10 years since we have been in the Top Division we have played up to and including this weekend 368 games. In those 368 games we have scored a total of 426 goals, giving an average across all games of 1.167 goals per game. So when is the best time to go for a pie without missing a goal? First half goals = 182, 42.7% of the total. Second half goals 244 = 57.3% of the total. Breaking this down further: First 30 minutes, goals = 106, 24.88% of the total, Second 30 minutes, goals = 141, 33.10% of the total, Third 30 minutes, goals 179, 42.02% of the total. Breaking this down further: Minutes 1- 10 , goals 33, 7.74% of total. Minutes 11-20 , goals 34, 7.98% of total. Minutes 21 - 30 , goals 39, 9.15% of total. Minutes 31 - 40 , goals 51 , 11.97% of the total. Minutes 41 - 45 , goals 20 , 4.69% of the total . First half added time , goals 5 , 1.17% of the total. Minutes 46 - 50 , goals 20 , 4.69% of the total. Minutes 51 - 60 , goals 45 , 10.56% of the total. Minutes 61 - 70 , goals 42 , 9.85% of the total. Minutes 71 - 80 , goals 64 , 15.02% of the total. Minutes 81 - 90 , goals 57 , 13.38% of the total. Second half added time , goals 16 , 3.75% of the total. Over 368 games of football we have managed just 5 goals in first half injury time, so looks like that is the safest time to join the pie que! No idea how these percentages compare to other teams but clearly shows that we score more as the game goes on scoring 32.05% or very close to one third of all goals in the last 20 minutes plus second half added time. Just goes to show how we keep playing and trying all the way through the 90 minutes, getting stronger as the game wears on.

    In the 10 years we have been in the top Division in a row we have hit the net 425 times, with the goals shared amongst 69 players plus some O.G's. Some great memories from reading the list of scorers. Very difficult to pick a favourite, possibly for me it was Kanes goal at Aberdeen when we won 1 nil to qualify again for Europe. The goals mean nothing without a solid defence which thankfully we have had and a fantastic team spirit. There's nothing like the feeling when the saintee's score, looking forward to many more. Top of the list with 48 is Maclean followed by 43 from Craig. Craig would possibly be top if he had not taken some time off at Easter Road. 48 MacLean, 43 Craig, 33 Davidson, 22 May, 17 Wotherspoon, 17 O'Halloran, 14 Sandaza, 14 Cummins, 13 MacKay,13 Kane, 13 Swanson, 12 Anderson, 12 Hasselbaink, 10 Sheridan, 9 Graham, 8 Alston, 7 Samuel, 7 Vine, 6 MacDonald, 5 Deuchar, 5 Kennedy, 5 Shaughnessy, 4 McMillan, 4 Millar, 4 Parkin, 4 Tade, 3 Grainger, 3 Haber, 3 Kerr, 3 Lappin, 3 Morris, 3 F Wright, 3 Croft,. 2 Each, Gartland, Hardie, Johnstone, Morais, Robertson, Scobbie, Watt. 1 each, Adams, Brown, Clancy, Callachan, Cregg, Caddis, Duberry, C.Davidson, Easton, Fisher, Fallon, Foster, Johansson, Jackson,, McFadden, Miller, McCracken, Moon, Milne, Paton, Sutton, Sheerin, Scougall, Taylor, Thomson, Tanser, Watson, Willock, D Wright Own Goals 12.

    Most points gained from another team in a season has been 10. 10 from Hearts in 2016/17 and 10 from Hamilton in seasons 2010/11 and 2017/18. We have one 100% record, that was against Kilie in season 2012/13 where we took 9 points out of 9. We also have several 9 out of 12 point tallys v Hearts in 2011/12, Dufc 2013/14, Motherwell in 2015/16, Thistle 2016/17. With 100% records so far this season against St Mirrren, Hamilton, Dundee and Livi there is a great opportunity to take maximum points from all or some of these teams. Our strength over the 10 years has been to consistently take points from all teams each year. Apart from 3 seasons against Celtic and one against Rangers the only other time we failed to get any points from another team was Partick Thistle in season 2015/16. Remarkable performance over a 10 year period.
