    Me burn books? Nah, I'll leave that to left leaners who want to legislate for speech against people's sensitivities - sounds as if that's something you'd support. Me? I'll take freedom to do and say what you like as long as it's not violent and doesn't hurt anyone physically.

    That's the point though isn't it? Speech is either free in this country, or it's not. If it's not, who gets to decide what's acceptable? You? The State? If we think that freedom of speech and expression are valuable, like it or not, we have to allow for people who feel the need to shriek abuse. Personally, I think the ability to argue against bad ideas or concepts with confidence that I'm not going to get dragged off to jail for it is something worth keeping, and to make the decision to move seats at an event where some t*** is shouting their mouth off for the sake of peace is a price worth paying. Try arguing against some things in China and see how far you get, because that's where it ends. I understand those of a more, shall we say, left leaning persuasion might be tempted, but IMO we go there at our collective peril.

    This whole thing is b*******. Reported to the police for being rude to someone? If your kids are affected by swearing at a football match, sit somewhere else. Or if there's nowhere else to sit because...and here's the thing...IT'S A FOOTBALL MATCH, the solution is simple -don't bring them to a football match. People are getting fed up with this precious victim garbage, because what you end up with is freedom of speech and association stamped on by the State. Once we start down that route, all bets are off and things get really ugly. Thankfully the wheel is starting to turn. History tells us very clearly that erosion of liberties like this (particularly when it's dressed up with the"for the common good" excuse) never ends well... The times in which we live, eh?

    A sad end to his Saints career. Still would like to have known what went on there. Or was it the case the guy just wasn't good enough or didn't settle?

    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.
