  1. Should the players try and shoot more from outside the box - aye or naw?

    He's a completely different midfielder to the one who scored that screamer in Dunfermline 10 year ago. By shooting outside the box, I literally mean the opportunities we don't take a yard or two from the box, rather than opting for a 40-yard screamer.
  2. Time after time in every game the players opt for trying to walk the ball into the net. Think the only person who actually tries and beat the keeper from outside the box is Spoony, and I'm not just talking about Saturday's game. Is it just me or should we see more players try and have a dig when they're in space outside the box?

    It's a strategy we've relied on for years when we don't have an out and out goal scorer. For every Stevie May and Franjinko Sandabedozie we lose, we still have the creative midfielders who can create enough chances for our average strikers to get on the score sheet. The only difference this year is that our strikers have been absolutely useless in front of goal. It's hard to blame Tommy for relying on the same player recruitment strategy which has seen us grasp top six after top six, Europe after Europe. Let's hope he notices this and recruits someone who's at least going to convert. At a bare minimum, we need a Miles Storey. No two ways about it. As much as we want a Stevie May, we really need a tapper inner who can inject a bit of creativity into the strike force through picking out space, actually willing to take players on, and is always looking for the perfect opportunity to pull the trigger. Macca is getting ever closer to his pension, Cummings and Kano have fallen short of the bill, and Denny doesn't deserve a look in. If anything should be held against Tommy, it should be his reluctance to play Hendry. But in terms of the recruitment, you can't blame him for thinking Macca and Cummings were going to be able to kick on again this season. Only after January will we truly be able to judge Tommy and Steve Brown, but until then, In Tommy and Steve I trust.

    Kane will make a great asset for Stirling Albion in League 1 next season.
  5. Time for Tommy to go?

    Upon reflection, I think Tommy should go. ...and get them two Irish fellas fae Dundalk in January and save our season.
  6. Time for Tommy to go?

    If we lost the first five games of the season and went on a winning run to get to 7th place just now, you'd all be hailing Tommy as a tactical genius and flogging him off to Rangers by now. Our success over the past few seasons was always going to bite us on the arse when we descend back down to where a club our size belongs.
  7. Scum v Saints 16th Sept 2017

    Why is it we can never win when we have a decent support?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  13. 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
  15. 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.
