  1. Hamilton Accies (H) - Premiership - 23/09/17

    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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    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.
  8. 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.
  9. Chris "midgey" Millar - An Appreciation

    Liam Craig should have been moved on. Yes he's was a great player for saints, but he's a shadow of the player he was and is constantly giving the ball away. In the same way Millar was a great player for saints, but can now no longer be relied on to play a whole match. Just because these guys are legends at the club doesn't make their status unquestionable. With an aging squad tough choices have to be made and clearing out the old campaigners and guys who've seen it all, is a necessary evil. Nobody is going to forget what the guys have done for saints, nor should performances later on on their careers change the way they're views. But for me, in order to move on as a club, the likes of Millar, Craig, MacLean eventually, Anderson eventually and Mannus, etc. Will need to be shown the door. I've no issue with Millar being told he's free to find a new club, it's a tough choice, but if it means we bring in someone for next season who's 10 years younger then it's the correct decision.
  10. Chris "midgey" Millar - An Appreciation

    He should never have been given the deal in the first place.
  11. Zander Clark

    Well considering he's not even currently first choice for us, nor is he playing. It's hardly shock of the century.
  12. Chris "midgey" Millar - An Appreciation

    He just doesn't look fit from what I've seen this season. He may not be injured, but he can't last a full hour let alone 90 minutes from what's on showing in Europe and friendlies. We can't afford to accommodate that in a starting 11. Yes he's been a great servant, but I'd much rather start a slightly less able player who you know won't require substitution or is a constant injury risk than Millar. He's still got something to give, but he needs to prove he's capable first, nobody knows what he's like in training right now, so we can't really know the full story.
  13. Motherwell (H) Premiership - 12 August 2017

    Excellent way to judge someone, 10 minutes against 8 men!

    Firstly there's no point in doing anything with the car park right now since the council are destroying the surface with lorries and other heavy duty machinery. So until that's finished, the car park will be a mess. Secondly, to thermoplastisise (if that's a word) the whole car park with marked and and numbers will cost a fortune, you've got to burn off the existing (or have a new surface) then re-apply, it's not just painting them. A car park of that size could cost £15-20k upwards of done properly and that's just for straight lines and markings. Anyway, sign someone.
  15. New Kit launched

    I suspect that Joma have just altered their template kit and the one we used last year isn't available any more, so they've just given us the new version of it. It's pretty much identical and because of new players, sponsors, etc. We couldn't use the ones from last year any more.
