    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 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.

    Wee correction on this Dundee points right but years should be 6 as they were up in 2012/13 for 1 year as well as their current run of 5 in a row.

    I remember his brother Jinky who was dropped from the 1974 world Cup squad for being drunk by our very own Willie Ormond. Jinky was pretty small as well but didn't stop him playing over 500 games for Celtic.

    Celtic v Saints, Premiership, 30 Jan 2019

    Saints have the second best record against Celtic home and away in the past 10 years, earning more points than Aberdeen Rangers Hibs Hearts Kilie and everyone else ex Motherwell who are just 1 point ahead of us. If any one can do it saints can.

    The answer to the Dundee teams situation is straightforward, neither of them have been able to sustain top division football over the past 10 years. Our points record against Dundee is very good, 5 seasons, 30 pts = 6 per season. Against Utd its 7 seasons, 33 points and ave.4.71 per season. Interestingly in the first 3 seasons back up we picked up just 5 points from UTD. In the next 4 seasons we picked up 28 points averaging 7 a season which was very good and of course, a Scottish Cup. We really did dominate them . Average points per season and number of seasons in top division in last 10 years as follows: Falkirk 1 season, Average pts for Saints 8 ST Mir. 7 seasons, ave. pts 6.14 Hamilton, 7 seasons, ave pts 6 Dundee 5 seasons ave 6 pts Dunfermline 1 season 6 pts Livingstone 1 season ave 6pts Ross Cty 6 seasons ave 5.66 pts. Motherwell 10 seasons ave 5.3 pts. ICT 7 seasons ave 5.28 pts Hibs 7 seasons ave 4.85 pts P Thistle 5 seasons ave 4.8 Dundee Utd 7 seasons ave 4.71 Hearts 9 seasons ave 4.66 Aberdeen 10 seasons ave 4.4 Killie 10 seasons ave 4.2 Celtic 10 seasons ave 1.7 pts Rangers 6 seasons ave 1.5 I think 10 years is a long enough period to give a large enough sample of how we are doing against other top division teams. Anything above 4.5 pts per season means we were on top although appreciate we would play some team 4 times depending upon whether we were in the same half of the league or not.

    Interesting to see where our points have come from. Motherwell 53 Aberdeen 44 ST MIrren 43 Killie,Hearts and Hamilton all 42 ICT 37 Hibs & Ross C both 34 Dundee Utd 33 Dundee 30 Partick 24 Celtic 17 Rangers 9 Falkirk 8 Livingstone & Dunfermline both 6 Over 50% of our points from just 6 teams, Motherwell, Killie, Aberdeen, Hearts, Hamilton and ST Mirren. Bottom 3 all only spent 1 year in top division in last 10 years.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    Performance based contracts not unusual for managers. Mcnamara got a lot of stick at utd for it but I think rewards based on performance including developing players is fine.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    If Tommy has negotiated a percentage of players sale value in his contract he could be sitting on at least a couple of massive paydays which would work in our favour if anyone comes calling for him.

    St Johnstone v Hamilton Academical - Scottish Cup 4th Round 19/1/19

    Our play was good apart from the last 30 yards towards their goal where we were murder to watch. Thought Foster was our most solid looking player. Danny should have been brought on much earlier. Kennedy cynically disarmed with first tackle which reduced his effectiveness. Canning took pelters from his own supporters, total numpties. Good to see SLF and the doc. Few beers in the Royal after and a visit to the Himalaya for a chefs special and a plastic fork. Night in the Sally including brekkie for just £37 which was great. Hopefully an away tie at ICT or Dingelly Dell in the next round.
