    Saints v Celtic sunday

    Only? The allocation issue was discussed, but surely better to start making the stadium work for us for matches like this, and increase the away fans' allocation? Saints fans without tickets weren't able to get in at the gate, and Celtic only had their (limited) allocation. Besides, getting horsed in front of a stadium full of Celtic fans we're milking would dull the discomfort if we going to put in performances like that...

    There are a couple of managers I'd like to see at Saints. But as I said, this isn't the place for that discussion.

    Cognitive dissonance, friend. I merely stated my opinion. You started the discussion.

    Yep. Hard to believe that folk did last season, and their opinion hasn't changed...

    Top 6 doesn't come in to it. I expect nothing other than that the manager of St Johnstone sends out a team that will compete with every single club in this league on the pitch. That didn't happen for long periods of last season, and it's not happening again. We can paper over cracks with "exiting signings" and the like, but for me, the basics aren't right and we still have an unbalanced squad. That's why my opinion hasn't changed. Anyhow, this isn't the tread for this discussion...

    Looks like Jez didn't even wait to finish his post before kicking the stool away...

    It was kind of obvious to me and others that Wright was past his sell by date at our club last season. My opinion hasn't changed.

    Some might say he shouldn't have the opportunity to see what we're seeing beyond today...

    Catastrophic. Any St Johnstone side used to be able to at least give these teams a game.

    Got to fear another serious doing here with only 25 mins gone - we clearly can't compete with the better sides. Are these other teams really that good, or is it all down to us? Our players don't seem to be learning from defeats. Where do we go from here?
  12. Don't think anyone could disagree with his comment. Saints battled well for the point, but Hibs looked far sharper. Their distribution, passing, movement and ball retention was much better than ours. Sure, Laidlaw had a couple of saves, including a great one from Kennedy, but a combination of Zander and plain bad finishing prevented them from being well ahead by half time.

    Player Contracts + Transfers

    Damn. It's a still from an old TV "guess what/who" show. I thought it was a dead clever clue, and Tommy might have Lionel Messi lined up...

    What?? Is that his insurance premium?

    The are certain things in this country that you now can't talk openly about, whereas other "comparable" things appear to still be fair game. In my opinion, freedom of speech is just that. NOTHING should be exempt from criticism or questioning. If I make a statement about anything, someone else should be free to respond and tell me and others why they think my idea is wrong or bad. Freedom of speech and expression is the way western civilisation has developed, and is WHY it has developed to be the advanced society we have now. Having said that, individuals should be responsible, and should be accountable if they issue direct threats of harm - valid criticism should never be supressed. However, we appear to have stopped doing that for certain things in the name of "equality". At best people will be ostracised publicly by certain factions if they articulate something deemed "offensive", with others too afraid to speak in their defence. At vest, the authorities will arrest you and even throw you in jail. That sort of thing may have been prevalent in Nazi Germany, Communist Russia or Orwell's 1984, but NONE OF US should want that anywhere across the western world, where we are meant to be a "free society". You presumably know the sorts of things I'm talking about. For examples of this happening across the UK and wider Europe, it's not difficult to find with a simple Google search. Just steer clear of mainstream media sources...
