  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Pretty sure Tommy said we were not getting anymore signings a while back, just after Watt signed and he had to send the trialists home? then we went on and signed Kennedy and then Mitchell on loan. Our midfield is all over the shop when you look at the squad, nobody apart from Muzz are central midfielders who we know can play in the Premiership. McCann (18) and McClean (19) I'm all for youth being given a chance but is Tommy? Other than that it's putting Craig and Spoony into central roles they're not used to. Craig lost his legs for playing out wide a few years ago and he was never the quickest, but it seems we're keeping a hold of him now he's doing his coaching badges in the hope that he stays with us after his playing days are over.
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Did we get any money from Stoke for Callum? we avoided spending to replace him by promoting Cleland and I can't imagine Maybury involved money if he was coaching anywhere? I find it hard to believe that we let go of Mannus, Millar and Macca and all we can afford is Wright and Watt?
  3. Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    Interesting, I see Boavista over in Portugal had them this season. Some of their rugby tops look nice, wouldn't mind something like this with blue and then white stripes.
  4. The Lovat Hotel

    Apparently the Lovat was under a business name where he was director. The Wheel Inn is now under a business name with his wife named as director, so I guess that's how he's managed to get in without any objection, he pretty much works for his wife...well on paper anyway.
  5. TV Crew in Perth Today

    Doesn't surprise me in Perth, loads of dodgy landlords who cannae be arsed with their properties.
  6. MOTHERWELL AWAY TUESDAY

    Tommy needs to make changes before it's too late, but I say give him until mid March and if he hasn't seen the changes needed and take action, if results continue this way then I would go with Callum in charge with Cleland as number 2. The main problems come from a obvious lack of investment from the board, I might be wrong but did the board not decide to invest in the youth development when Stevenson came back? that's 2012. We then saw Stevie May impress and thought this was definitely the way to go instead of opting to buy (like we ever do that) or paying signing fees with players and agents? It also lets us sell players at a profit to keep the figures nice and healthy. We've seen players like Comrie, Gordon and Kerr show signs of being good enough lately but not be given a run in the first team. We're struggling to score goals but we have Hendry in reserve who's apparently impressing. I don't care how old you are, if you're good enough then give them a chance. We've insisted in keeping faith with the some players since we won the cup, Macca should have gone a long time ago, Muzz isn't the player we thought he'd be due to injuries but must be one of the highest earners right? Ando is loyal but showing big signs of his best days seriously being behind him, Wotherspoon is inconsistent but has flashes of brilliance, Millar who is probably our best midfielder is for some reason not a favourite with the manager. Our goalkeeper position isn't even concrete anymore, Mannus' performances started to drop straight after winning the cup and Zander can be iffy at times. Then we have a crafty wee player like Scougall who arrived showing having a nice footballing brain with some creative sparks, but it's like he's been shackled by management and our style of play. Foster should be long gone, his disciplinary record in his short time is poor and his attitude towards fans at times.
  7. Is this the winter of our discontent?

    Getting a bit tired of hearing Tommy moaning to the press. If it's not about the chairman or some part of the club, then it's about the fans. Almost like he thinks he is beyond criticism and should get special treatment. As for a holiday abroad and warm weather training, get tae ****! in 4-5 months time you'll all be finalising your end of season holidays and then you can go and get some sun. There's plenty of ways the boys can do training over the winter break even if the grass pitches are frozen. Get them sitting in on extra analysis sessions of our league opponents, indoor set piece training, or in the gym working on cardio and strength training...bloody hell get them in the swimming pool and crank the temperature up, that warm enough for them? Just cause there's a winter break, doesn't mean you should be off relaxing and sunning it up in Spain.
  8. Ranger's v st Johnstone 16/12/17

    With 20 minutes remaining the amount of Rangers fans walking out almost as soon as Cummins shot hits the net...that's it guys, follow follow...each other to the exit.
  9. Bertha Park

    Spoke to one of the lads working there whilst on a walk early this year and he said it was to be another 3 years if everything was on time.
  10. Time for Tommy to go?

    Sorry did I miss the part where we're in a relegation battle and might be doomed for the championship? cause that is the only time we should be looking at getting rid of Tommy right now. Yes he has a big problem with a lack of goalscorers and he acknowledges that. It's not just down to him but the entire coaching staff and the players and in probably most importantly...the board and Mr Brown. It's no secret we have one of the strictest owners when it comes to loosening the purse strings but sure now is the time to be looking at that for just one signing. It was obvious to us all during the summer that we needed a goalscorer and we struggled to get anyone and it looks like we just settled for what we could easily get, rather than someone we knew would work. If Brown says to him he wont give him money to spend, then we surely have to be looking at giving the young lads a try? and by that I don't mean 20 minutes as a sub or one start and if they don't bag a goal, then straight back to the development squad. Give a lad a run of 4 or 5 games with Macca or Cummins (dunno why you'd pick him though) and see if there are signs of a partnership developing.
  11. Goalies in the SPFL

    Mannus isn't the keeper he was say 3-4 years ago. It's almost like he's lost a touch of confidence or he's become complacent. His palming shots away into dangerous areas frightens me, it's almost like he prefers to palm than to catch now.
  12. The Mosque

    Nazi's were socialists!!??...oh man...did someone re-write the history books overnight and not tell me?
  13. The Mosque

    I get the feeling you're one of those people who says we're all one race, the human race. Therefore racism doesn't exist. The term racism has changed over the years but it has a broad meaning these days with various forms of racism. Some including religion, ethnicity, nationality and communities of people and more. Do I really have to educate you? really? please pick up a book or how about do some research on the internet, you know the thing you use to come on here...it's a wonderful place full of information!
  14. The Mosque

    Look up cultural racism.
  15. The Mosque

    The mosque isn't a problem for us locals, it's just an upgrade for the mosque on the Glasgow road which is basically a small flat not big enough for the muslim population of Perth. The only issue was the racists who came to Perth to oppose the mosque. They tried to say it was standing up for locals who's council went behind their backs in approving the mosque. Their white power flags said different.
