  1. Shaughnessey played on the left of he back 3, the position of the defenders wasn’t the issue. It was the school boy mistakes which lost is the first goal.
  2. Heart's v St Johnstone 03/02/18

    Comrie didn’t start on a Monday at all. Given he and Scougall have only both just come back from injury and illness, squad management from Wright was totally the right thing to do. As it happened Foster was good today.

    Could field a midfield containing Scottish, Welsh and Irish internationalists. When was the last time that happened? If ever.
  4. Development Squad News 2017/18

    Assuming that’s the young lad that came on last night against Albion. Put himself about and drove forward on occasion, looks like he has potential, especially on a better pitch.

    Unless Hibs don’t want him in the division, which makes no sense as we’re not catching them and he’s liable to help take points off rivals. Neither of the lower league teams should stand a chance!

    Bit of both by all accounts. He was definitely injured, but has been back training and has been on the Hibs bench in recent weeks which suggests he’s back for, just not able to get a look in. Hibs and seem to want him to get a chance in their team, as when he’s played he’s shown what he can do and scored a few goals, I think it’s a case of Lennon’s preferred system not suiting him at all and he can’t find a place for him within the team.

    It’s called health and safety.

    Wait a minute, you’re trying to say that Danny Swanson, a typical winger/playmaker wasn’t a success at saints because he wasn’t brilliant in every game. I’ve heard it all now, if you think these guys, who btw almost single handidly propelled saints up the league in the various seasons weren’t a success.

    Tansey has been rubbish for the past 18 months, on his current form he’d not improve us at all. As for Cifti, again he’s hardly kicked a ball in 2 seasons, you just don’t know what kind of player you’re getting there. I’d rather we didn’t take the chance on him.
  10. Manager Blasts Negative Fans

    I have a great deal of sympathy for Cummins and to a lesser extent Wotherspoon. There’s guys who moan the instance they come on and frankly both have proven to be decent players who can actually change a game. The number of people in the saints crowd who don’t bother to back a player or the team is so frustrating. Yes every football fan is entitled to their opinion and of course they can lambast who they like, they’ve paid their money and I’ve no issue with that. What I take issue with is not being able to even admit they’re wrong when Wotherspoon scores or Cummins wins a corner/free-kick from good play. A number of fans only see the flaws and it’s so aggravating to hear it. Get behind the guys, the team, the manager. By all means moan under your breathe about a bad ball or roll your eyes when Cummins falls over for the third time, but don’t destroy guys confidence by doing it vocally, I’d say be the bigger man. Stand up applaud the 100% effort a guy like Cummins gives, tell him to pick himself back up and go again. Then come on here and moan about him, where it won’t make things worse. Everyone is entitled to do and say what they want at a football match and to whomever they please. I’ll always try and shout encouragement or praise at saints players though, all the other stuff gets said a bit quieter to whom ever is around me, so it doesn’t get to the pitch and start a negative feel there too, as that’s the last thing we need. The lack of this so called Football people want is as a direct result of a lack of confidence which in my opinion is stemming from the crowd most of the time.
  11. Hamilton v St.Johnstone - 9th December 2017

    Considering we never really do well there, they’re on a 6 match unbeaten run and we’ve been mince for 3 months. Of course they’re going to be playing better than us, which is why trying to get from going right now is crucial. It’s hardly a worry, it’s called Football.

    Craig’s got another 18 months. Way to ruin my Fridays Kyle thanks. Here was me thinking he was off at the end of the season. I’m not sure Wright does trust Alston, I think he’s just so determined that he’s a success he’ll play him out of spite. Truth me told I’d flrgotten about Millar and Watson. Millar may well drop down to play football closer to his home and, rather predictably Watson’s injured again so chances of punting him are slim. I’d hope that there’s a clause in Johnstones loan deal, otherwise we better be paying heehaw for him.

    Who do we let go though, unless guys have found new clubs and the other teams are wanting them in January we can’t rewlly afford to be cutting contract short. In an ideal world the following would leave - Thompson Craig Gilchirst Alston Johnstone Mybe send a few youngsters out on loan again, but there’s really not much place for cutting our squad down at all. I suspect we’ll punt Johnstone back and if it was me, I’d probably bring back Jason Kerr and release Gilchrist. If we can keep Kanr out all season then do that. I think if that’s the case we’d need to bring in 2 strikers, 1 driving midfielder and ideallly another senior centreback to maybe allow Kerr to develop. I think I’d also be wanting Hendry out on loan as well, whilst he looks decent and maybe ready for first team football, he’s never going to play enough games for us right now.
  14. He had been playing left back that season, but at the time he scored that goal, he’d been moved into midfield about 10 minutes prior. Talk about tactical masterstroke. Pretty sure Gary Irvine scored a screamer at EEP that year as well.

    I think making the runs is more game intelligence and confidence. Our players seem so willing to run beyond their markers instead play in front of them which makes it incredibly easy to defend against. Against killie there was only one ball in behind their defence from open play I can remember and it came from Tanser, so our players are capable. They need to believe that the guys around them are good enough to see if they get free of their marker and are willing to try a riskier pass. I’d descrive saints way of playing lazy and easy tbh. I don’t care if we try a risky pass and it fails, at least we’re trying to break a defence down by taking chances.
