    Tbf I though Wright looked good on Saturday against Aberdeen. He’s going to be a typical winger I suspect, some matches he’ll look unstoppable, others he’ll look like he can barely kick a ball.

    So given the trialist situation and the injuries, you'd imagine the team will start a little like this - Lyness Comrie Kerr Gordon Russell Wright Wotherspoon McCann Driver Watt McMillan Unless of course they drop Scougall deeper, or indeed play Craig instead. Leaves the likes of Tanser (who needs wrapped in cotton wool right now), Scougall/McCann, McClean to come on, but apart from them, that's pretty much our squad right now considering we have 7 first team players either injured or with knocks and wont be risked. Edit - Completely forgot about Alston and Hendry, we're maybe not as weak as it originally looked and it's encouraging how young our squad is.

    Given he played 45 minutes in Austria, I don’t think he’s injured. Simply being managed.

    Quite, McMillan clearly isn’t a lone front man and that much is clear. I’d say Kane doing his running next to him however would possibly be promising, I don’t think they’ve had the oppertunity to play together yet. McMillan is ultimately a poacher who feeds off loose balls and half chances, something we’ve lacked recently. Don’t get me wrong he’s a decent player with a little bit of pace and guile, but he’s better facing towards the goal than with his back to it. My worry is, if we play two up front, we’re back to playing Scougall out wide and he showed yesterday that he is much better in that little hole off the strikers. He just wasn’t match sharp, but unless we drop him deeper then I don’t see how we’ll set up to the best of our squads ability.

    For all people can moan about the lack of transfer news or indeed news at all. The likes of Kilmarnock haven’t done anything either, even Hibs who start back in Europe way before we’re back haven’t signed anyone or indeed even been linked with anyone. For once the management and staff at saints actually get an extended break this season and as far as I’m concerned they’ve earned it. Just cause they’re away doesn’t mean we won’t be active in the market, it just means that everyone else is also on holiday. Folk need to relax and realise saints aren’t going to tell people everything, especially with skeleton staff right now and anyway the World Cup starts today, that’ll keep everyone amused.

    I think there’s an element of that, but playing where he does Tanser is coming up against fullbacks already and is actually beating them with a bit of skill and ability regularly. His crossing is also better from a deeper position and he deserves a goal or two from his play this season, so gets in the right spots to shoot. I agree he’s a better fullback, but I think he’d be alright on the left, certainly no worse than Liam Craig and with more pace.

    Does the kid even have a professional contract? If not there’s nothing we can even do to stop him from training and signing for another team.

    I’m sure I read somewhere that he’d been used as a wingback this season as well. Now I’m not suggesting that he’s going to be playing there for us, but if he’s able to then if we’re pushing for a game, a more offensive minded wingback is a plus.

    The only player worth looking at, at Dunfermline is Ryan Williamson.

    Grants also only played about 10 games this season as he’s always injured. Or maybe that’s Watson, but I’m pretty sure it’s Grant and most Falkirk fans think he’s broken.
  12. Must have just imagined the 1-0 game at McDiarmid at the start of the season?
  13. Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    Bottom two are being used by Ross County and QotS for their respective kits this season.

    I don’t suspect we’ll sign any defenders in the summer.
  15. Alan Mannus

    He made it clear that he wanted to go back to Ireland with his family. This decision has nothing to do with saints wanting or not to keep him.
