  1. Scum v Saints 16th Sept 2017

    Why is it we can never win when we have a decent support?
  2. Scum v Saints 16th Sept 2017

    Worst performance of the year, even at 3-0 down to Partick we were playing better than the pish we're witnessing now. 2-0 down.
  3. Saints v Hibs 9-9-17

    Nice to see Paton getting on the scoresheet

    Beat me to it whilst I was editing that in.

    Keith Watson gone to Hartlepool on loan. Midge looks set to leave either on loan or on a permanent basis. Tommy saying he had a duty to recognize his service to the club and give him a testimonial.

    Objective is 10th place, Increased budget this window, Kano and Kerr out on Loan, Celtic UCL financial bonus, Any new first team signings promised to be one of quality, 200k this season due to come from International call ups.... Signed Denny Johnstone on loan.
  7. Chris "midgey" Millar - An Appreciation

    Clearly something's going on. One of the originals, right with us from the beginning on the Golden Era. And we don't even have a recognised chant for him. What ever happens Midge, you'll always be a Saints legend. #ClassOf14

    Falkirk over Hamilton, regardless of plastic pitch
  9. Player Contracts + Transfers

    The post was meant to be ironic and hypocritical, directed at those who criticise the club's target of remaining and the league as well as the lack of spending. But the main point in relation to the initial discussion was that personally, I'd rather go to a plastic pitch ground if it was Falkirk, as opposed to Hamilton for example - rather than avoiding plastic pitches for the sake of them being plastic pitches. As well as the opinion that a 16 team league comprising of the so-called "Bigger" teams in the lower leagues, would be refreshing for Scottish football. As mentioned already, it should be in its own thread. But the point which talks down on clubs like Hamilton was purposely ironic, so don't get your knickers in a twist. Of course, I'm an arsehole, but who isn't nowadays.

    Plastic pitches or no plastic pitches, I'd rather we had teams like Dunfermline and Falkirk back in the league than Hamilton for example, who offer virtually nothing to the SPFL at all in any aspect. All these bigger teams in the lower leagues really show how great a 16 team league would be. One can only hope.

    Rumour floating about of a swap deal for Jay Quitongo of Morton, with Chris Millar going the other way.

    Sammon = A rich man's Cummins

    Tommy's interview with the Courier today: “Every manager will think they have done well with their transfer business but only time will tell,” said Wright. “Their two additions up top certainly make them stronger on paper but players have to do well and go out and perform. How quickly players settle into a new club is also a factor but Sammon and Storey have both been in Scotland and know the league so that limits the risk factor. They are two good acquisitions for Partick. “Sammon played left the other night and while he probably prefers to play through the middle he is adaptable. The new men will give them a bit more flexibility and a bit of power and pace up front. “But we are happy with what we have done so far. Our business has been pretty good but we do need a striker in. “With Kane going out and the emergence of Hendry we aren’t weaker in terms of quality but we are one down. “It’s no secret we have been looking for a striker for a while now but he has to be one who will come in and make a difference, not just be a squad player.” Wright added: “We have missed out on one or two who I feel would have done a job. But if I don’t get anyone who I feel can make the squad better I will go with what I have got. “As a manager I have got the two players I wanted over the summer and the last one will be the hardest to get. “Everyone wants a striker and we are all probably looking at the same ones. We have to make sure we get the right one in.” Partick Thistle are the only Scottish team to have beaten Saints so far this season but Wright doesn’t believe there is any deep mystery regarding their Betfred Cup exit to the Firhill side. “This time it is quite simple,” he pointed out. “We have to defend better and take our chances. We have to be better at both ends of the pitch than we were in the cup game. “We certainly defended much better against Motherwell and when the chances came we were clinical. We have to take those positives into this mach. “But it’s not about us looking for revenge. If you need that to motivate you it doesn’t help. The motivation is to win three points. “There’s a feel good factor here but we try not to get a carried way to much with ups and downs. The extremes prompted by wins and losses are for the supporters to live with, not players. “We know it’s a long season. This has only been a good start but we want to build on it. We know the likelihood is that we won’t be top of the league at the end of the season so we just have to enjoy this week and try to get a win which takes us closer to 10 points and our initial target.” Blair Alston is a doubt for the match, with Wright reporting: “Blair has a thigh niggle which we will assess again. He picked up a dead leg a couple of weeks ago but it seems to have flared up a bit. If there is any doubt about him we won’t risk him but hopefully he will be OK.”
