  1. Tommy for Rangers

    I've thought about this and I think the opportunity to go full time could be a massive factor. Some may argue it's a step down, but he knows saints model, manager leaves, assistant takes over so he'd just need to be patient and hope either Davidson does really well or really poorly.
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    He's tried and failed to get another club in the past. He's now part of the bricks and mortar at saints and frankly the fans love him because of the type of player he is. I can't ever see Davidson lining up against us for another team, I may be wrong, but because he's a notorious injury risk, nobody in Scotland would risk him I don't think.
  3. So were Chris Kane and Jason Kerr. Always thought it's brace of players to sit amongst fans. Especially on a bad run.
  4. Tynecastle fiasco

    Main stand has the changing facilities and all the pre-match stuff. If the stands not safe there's nowhere for them to do all that so can't play. I don't know how they got around it before, but suspect whatever temporary measures they had no longer exist.

    Looks like a poacher who gets in and stays in the box, something we've been sorely missing. We actually put a lot of balls into the box from wide areas and there's never anyone there. Plus he takes penalties which is useful.
  6. Time for Tommy to go?

    In credit now we may be, but not if we go spending £300/400k willynilly on trying to save our season. We've budgeted for the season and that's what we'll stick to, there may be some scope for movement in that, but ultimately we're never going to sacrifice the stability of the club. As mentioned that Celtic money is for youth development only, we can't put that into playing budget. We may be able to fiddle about a bit and put some previously set aside youth money into it, but there's not a chance we'd allocated anywhere near that towards it. So that money is in essence irrelevant to the first team
  7. Hamilton Accies (H) - Premiership - 23/09/17

    We've replaced Wright, Mackay, Morris, Duberry, Davidson all of the top of my head easily in recent enough seasons. We've adapted our play to losing the likes of Sandaza, May and O'Halloran the first then, even losing Swanson. Millar doesn't play now as it is, Craig is crap nowadays anyway, which leaves MacLean as the only one who needs replaced and we've been saying that for seasons now.

    As much as you can give Tommy credit for switching to a back 3, which worked albeit we were lucky that Hamilton are rancid because we were too open. It can't be forgotten that he completely screwed the first half up by playing the totally wrong formation and the wrong players. So yes praise is deserved as well as the substitution of Tanser, but had he not been playing tactical tombola in the first place we'd never have needed to switch things up.

    Why would you drop another player when O'Halloran would be coming out the team anyway?
  10. MOTM Saints 1 - Hibs 1 - 09/09/17

    You can't understand the votes for Mannus yet think he was the best saints player on the pitch yourself? You really are an idiot if you didn't think twice about what you just wrote.
  11. Saints v Hibs 9-9-17

    Lennon and Wright are good mates, doubt there will be any square go's unfortunately. Andrew Walsh is the referee which is giving me the fear already tbh. I suspect we'll lose as we usually do after the international break for whatever reason, but then again this saints team has a new found resilience to it, so hopefully not. I'd probably take a draw to remain unbeaten.
  12. Player Contracts + Transfers

    There's no real risk with O'Halloran, we know what he's capable of, he's shown it time and time again. You're paying the money for a match winner in your team. If he's offered a deal, I'd hope its more than 2 years thats for sure.
  13. Player Contracts + Transfers

    You're surprised nobody came in for a 34 year old goalkeeper or our relatively inexperienced substitute goalkeeper. Really? Think that one through for a second and you'll realise that was never happening.
  14. Player Contracts + Transfers

    He's not going anywhere, all this panty wetting for nothing. We all know Tommy has locked him in his car with the window rolled down slightly.
  15. Chris "midgey" Millar - An Appreciation

    I don't think his ability is in doubt at all. I think it's his physical capability that is. He may be fit, but a fit Millar can only now do 60 minutes tops. If he was a game changer ala Swanson you'd accept that, but not a starting central midfielder unfortunately. I think it's the right decision, but been handled badly.
