    Saints v Celtic, Sunday 3 Feb, league game.

    Well we defended ok, Tanser mistake aside, but offered nothing. Callaghan and Davidson together is a brutal combination. We just could not keep the ball when we got it and it was easy for them being honest. Swanson failing again to show anything to say he was worth bringing back. Hope he proves me wrong though

    Saints v Sevco 23rd Dec

    At least we can all relax a bit about missing a penalty tomorrow - we are playing the Rangers, not likely to be awarded a penalty that we would miss anyway!

    Stjohnstone v Hamilton

    No I was not referring to the size of the overall crowd as St Mirren did bring a good support. I just thought the East Stand looked fuller that it did in St Mirren game

    Stjohnstone v Hamilton

    Crowd was given as 2225 which surprised me as I honestly thought the East Stand looked busier than St Mirren game

    Livingston v Saints Wednesday 31 October 2018 League Game 11

    Big Saints support behind that goal!
  7. Just trying to gauge opinion here. Yesterday’s home support was awful but not criticising those who actually went. I am genuinely concerned about the decreasing size of our support. Others appear to want to shrug it off and say things like “crowds don’t win points” etc. However while we never had a huge support it did sit around the 3000 mark for visits of the likes of St mirren etc but it would rise when teams like Hearts, Dons etc came to town but not now. Recent seasons has seen some of our best ever on the pitch achievements and we are now regarded as one of the mainstays of the Premiership. However some of that success it can be argued was achieved by sh##festing many games, being hard to beat etc but a lot of the entertainment went out the window. Last two or three seasons in particular were eye wateringly painful but we retained our status. Discussing this yesterday at the match and if we had got to the LC semi this season I could not see us selling more that 2000/2500 tickets. So are our achievements coming at a cost? Or are there other issues at play. Cost does not appear to be a factor as other clubs are experiencing increasing numbers and we offer some of the best pricing packages to be found anywhere. So what’s going on with our support? Will they ever return?

    Taxi for Tommy?

    Except we did not have a go! Did not make tackles, poor passing, no leadership on pitch, not aggressive enough Etc etc. It was a slightly more attack minded formation which had potential to hit on the break but all that disappeared at kick off. Our players lacked commitment, tactical awareness but most of all lacked ability to play at this level. Nothing to do with being defensively or offensively set up we were just a very poor excuse of a football team today and it was embarrassing to watch. Some one else has said this already but where’s the apology to the fans?

    Saints v Celtic sunday

    Ok used to be three games. So it will be two as sent off for serious foul play! Mind you that tackle was the closest any Saints player got to an opposition player all afternoon

    And no Swanson for the next three games against the teams we are hoping to pick up some points!

    Saints v Celtic sunday

    Utter shambles. What money was made available has been wasted in the wrong areas. Midfield today put in their worst performance yet and that takes some doing! Spoony is a liability, Tanser can not defend, Alston offers nothing and Callaghan is just a poor Liam. My biggest issue is Joe however. Not leading on the pitch and Kerr’s performances affected by this imo. Does not challenge enough and his body language for a Captain is so negative. Ando has his place back now but with all due respect to Ando that is a backward step for the team, but necessary. TW saying at end that no tackles were made until Ando came on must make Joe fear the worst. Another long season ahead I’m afraid.

    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    I’m in the camp that remains a bit disappointed we lined up so negatively on Wed night. But I’m not suggesting that we should have gone toe to toe with Celtic and gung-ho. Players like Swanson , Macmillan and Kennedy can play their part defensively and we could have set up in a defensive mindset but have the players on the pitch that could attack Celtic when the opportunities arose. Let’s be honest here we could still be playing that game now and not have scored! It was brutal to watch! It worries me that if we are not going to use this so called suped up squad against better teams then all we are doing is settling for bottom six but slightly better than bottom two as with the mindset from Wednesday night we ain’t getting anywhere near top six.

    Same pathetic tactics as last season and it did not work then so why would it work this time out. We have invested in the squad to be able to compete in games like this but we resort to the same team as last season. Infuriating

    Don’t worry guys we have plenty of pace and fire power to bring on when we go four down. We’ve got this........

    So Wright, Swanson and Kennedy all doubts for Wednesday night? Anyone fancy a night of long balls punted up to Watt??
