    Johnny B reacted to blueheaven in Wage Bill   
    I find the timing of this baffling, to be honest. We're on a great run, we're still in the Cup, we're firmly in the hunt for top 6, and for the first time in a while the squad actually has several sellable assets. Yet Steve Brown's talking as if the season has already been a failure. By all means he can think this way behind closed doors, but does he really need to talk to the media about it? As far as I can see, all he's doing is putting a downer on everything. If he really wants fans to start coming back in numbers, maybe the down-in-the-dumps image he puts across of himself and the club and the manager is something he could start giving a bit more thought.
    I think this is a really positive, exciting time for Saints - we have an opportunity to finish the season on a high, and really look forward to what we might be able to do next season if we start well. Couldn't Steve Brown mention some of that stuff instead?

    Good interview with Callum Booth. Guy is looking for stability. Get him sign ed up on 2 year contact. It is no coincidence that things have improved since he came into team.

    A very eloquent reply. 
    If I am not mistaken this form is for all to submit their opinions which includes those who live outside the UK. You may agree or not agree with them and that is your prerogative.
    Saints TV when working transmits every SPFL home game and apart from 3 away grounds every away game, therefore as for “seeing them every 4 weeks” you are mistaken unless your arithmetic is on par with your vocabulary.
    Normally I would let this kind of comment pass but had to let you know as an overseas TV supporter I will continue to give my opinion on all aspects of our football club.

    Johnny B reacted to blueheaven in Scottish Cup Q/F 29/2/2020   
    I don't really think the club has done much wrong here. Regardless of what bits of the ground we give to Celtic, the home crowd won't change in size. So we either fill as many of the empty seats as we can by giving them to Celtic, or they stay empty, and I don't really get what the point of that would be. Personally I'm not convinced that it will have any impact on the result of the match - even when we've beaten them in the past, we've always been outnumbered in the stands. On the day, if Saints are winning then the chances are the Celtic fans will go quiet and all the atmosphere will come from the home fans anyway. If we're losing, it will be the opposite. I generally think the atmosphere is driven by what's happening on the pitch, rather than the other way around.
    The only way to change this situation is for Saints fans to start turning up to these games in bigger numbers... but at £25 a ticket, the matches often being televised and our team often taking a humping, I find it hard to see any way that that's going to happen.

    Johnny B reacted to Dave H in Scottish Cup 5th round. 8/2/2020.   
    Not sure what you heard.  Easy win. Hit the bar, hit the post twice.  Ayr never really threatened all game.  
    Just wasteful, could have been 4 or 5 on a better day.  Credit where credit is due in horrendous windy conditions, away from home v a team who beat Ross Co last round.   Red card clearly the turning point of the game as the extra man definitely made it as comfortable as it was. Just wish we scored a 3rd, to remove that doubt we might concede late on, albeit Ayr rarely made it near our box.
    Names in the hat!  Job done.
    Great travelling support, but **** me that drive home was seriously shite... some huge bits of aquaplaning at 70mph in the storm!

    Thought it was a great 2nd half performance. Thought Cane played well and was unlucky not to score. His workrate was first class, good link up play and thought his efforts on goal were decent strikes. The goals we actually got from open play probably werent as clean strikes just less central. MOH played really well as well and with fantastic pace. It would be great if both of them to started to find the back of the net.

    I have to echo the comments on here regarding David Wotherspoon, he gets his fair share of stick but recently he has been absolutely immense! The composure to chop inside his man and play a nice ball down the line to Liam Craig in the build up to the second goal was brilliant...he’s just St.Johnstone through & through
