    2nd graphic shows how many times he kept us in the game this season. Would have really struggled without him for any length of time.

    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    3 bad months maybe but not 6 good months. I still think the points on the board flatter us. I go to the games, expecting to be entertained, not to watch Saints scrape some points off teams that are terrible. So perhaps okay season in terms of points and position but a lot of performance negatives that I hope aren't carried into the 2019-2020 season.

    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    Well we can probably expect more of the same next season, Tommy said on the radio that the team only needs a small tweak in the Summer and that they need a new striker. How we weren't in the relegation battle after a lot of terrible performances this year I don't know. Thank goodness Accies, St Mirren and Dundee were even worse but yet we drop points to Accies again. Hate when we hear it was another good season, certainly wasn't and the table positions really flatter us.

    Anyone think Tony Watt will be with us next season. He hasnt been getting starts lately and injured at the moment, not fully dropped. Im wondering who will pick him up after what hasnt been a good season for him.

    Have we underachieved this season?

    I'll say it again and hopefully I'll get someone to agree but a lot of teams have made us look better than we are by being absolutely terrible against us. The mentality hasnt been right, there is ability in the team but too many mistakes. Theres a lot of players that dont look like they want to play for the club, like its just a job. Not enough leadership on the park, team spirit or love for the club. Too much pointing and blame amongst certain players when things go wrong.

    So at least we are top in one respect. This is points compared to this time last year.

    St.Johnstone V Dundee - Wednesday 3rd April

    Thought MOH looked better than he has done in ages. Some real bursts of pace where he just ran through them and gained lots of ground. Probably didnt see enough of him though. Worked well with him and matty on the wings. We had a lot of players who did well tonight but it also highlighted some of the usual suspects that still need to up their game.

    As well as changes on field, changes are needed off field. Turnout at games has been terrible and looks to be in severe decline. People wont go to watch rubbish football but the club also needs to figure put how to get more bums in seats. Could they do something with season tickets where the more people buy the cheaper it becomes for everyone, some sort of deposit and starting price. It breaks my heart when my 7 year old sometimes isnt bothered about going to the games, not because he doesnt love football, but what he sees is uninspiring.

    Saints had a good points run before Christmas (Never should have lost that 1-2 game to Motherwell). Some times I wonder if we were actually that good or if the other teams were making us look better than we actually were. A lot of teams like Aberdeen hadnt been on form until 2019 which was when we completely dropped ours.

    Motherwell v St Johnstone 30/3/2019

    I must have gone to the wrong game because I saw a team in blue play sh** against an equally sh** St Miiren team and came away feeling we were lucky to get points.
  12. 2nd goal was a real blow, I think we all knew from that point, that was game over. Clearance wasnt great but in most games you would probably get away with that but what is it? Two years since Brown last scored. No one on the pitch was expecting that, least of all him. Not saying it was a lucky strike, he hit it terrifically well but it clearly showed that things weren't going to go Saints way. Team just needs to regroup and ride out this rough spell.
  13. Starting to think that we weren't as good as we seemed before the New Year, maybe it was the teams we were playing who were just making us look good by being pretty terrible themselves. When we won 4-0, Accies were just awful, so it was wasn't because we were terrific.
  14. Once we knew we were beat, we should have been kicking lumps out of them in the second half (without getting players sent off and giving them free kicks in vulnerable areas). Instead we just let them play flowing football. Even when they were 4 up they were tackling us aggressively and muscling us off the ball. This wasn't unlike the hammering we got at McDiarmid and I thought the team had learnt from that experience.
  15. Buckle up folks we are in for a bumpy ride. Rangers will be a tough game and so will Aberdeen as they've been scoring plenty and have a consistent goal scorer in Cosgrove. Something we haven't had all season.
  16. Poor performance and Celtic playing well at the moment. Celtic are looking at competing in Europe, buying and getting players in who compete at that level and then play them against teams like Saints who's goal every year is to stay in the league. My disappointment is that there are other teams with similar resources who compete more against Celtic. Saints haven't played well since the break but hopefully they can pick themselves up.
  17. Celtic are far more aggressive in their tackling and winning the ball. Saints don't aggressively play like that and need to play within the rules but be more physical in their challenging.
  18. At least we've had a couple of efforts now.

    From the BBC - St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright: "Poor result and poor goals we've given away, which have cost us. We should deal with both goals a lot better." Poor goals given away is an issue but not as big as not scoring in the first half. If we score a couple of goals in the first half, take control of the game, it makes it hard for the opposition. Last 4 games 0-0 at half time, losing goals between 50-80 mins.

    This defending for most of the game and patient build up is not working. We cant defend for 90 mins, we lose late goals and only then look like we want to score. We need to push teams harder in the early stages and be hungry for the first goal. At the moment the goals are only coming from players that score now and then, no consistent goal scorer in the team. Are team are working hard but our attacking tactics aren't right at the moment. Goss looks like a decent signing. The corners I saw tonight made it past the front post which is something.

    Morelos sent off in Rangers game, that's a result for us, won't be playing against us.

    The stream from is pretty decent and no one-sided commentary.

    BBC showed Saints badge next to the words goal but it turns out it was Killie that scored.
