  1. Hearts v Saints at MURRAYFIELD

    Our senior management staff are a goalkeeper (Wright), a defender (Davidson) and another defender (Cleland). I know we have more coaches on the books, but who is actually in charge of our front line? Are we too focused on becoming hard to beat? And is it now starting to cost us games?

    Swanson deserves no more chances at this club.
  3. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    Good to know. Well worth a bump of the entire thread. Well done
  4. Tommy for Scotland?

    Think he'll be kept on as part of the setup under the new manager? I remember when he was brought on board Strachan spoke as if he was a stranger to him ("We had a meeting to make sure we know each other"), so I wonder who actually made the decision to introduce him to the coaching team.
  5. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    I'd be interested to hear the thinking behind this statement?
  6. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    Why bother when it's much easier to log on every now and again and post condescending rolling-eyes smileys. I've never before been part of a forum where a mod shows such disdain for the posters and content with minimal attempts to make a contribution themselves.
  7. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I wonder how Tommy will deal with Kane when this confidence-boosting loan move is confirmed as a complete failure.
  8. Tommy for Scotland?

    Both nations are mostly dealing with a similar level of player (lower half EPL, Championship, Scot Prem), and although I'm no expert on the NI squad and succession plans, there certainly appears to be an argument that the Scotland squad has greater potential looking forward. Perhaps, as you say, failure in the play-offs will make O'Neill think about looking for opportunities elsewhere. A new challenge etc. Couple that with his recent comments about not being in any rush to take a club job, and an opportunity like the Scotland role could turn his head as it would allow him to stay in international management for a further 3-5 years. Plus he's based in Edinburgh and has links and experience with the game up here. But would the SFA really be able to increase his wages considerably? He's on £500k at the moment and with a few years left on his contract there would be a fair wedge of compo required on top of that. Personally, I don't see it happening, but also don't feel it's wild to suggest that it may interest him.
  9. Tommy for Scotland?

    A manager who can take a team of bang-average players and motivate them to consistently over perform well as one solid unit? It'll never catch on. But sadly the SFA will never pay compensation for a diddy club manager up here. They'd much rather spunk it on an out of work failure punted from the glamorous English second tier. I have seen no odds yet, but Lambert and the usuals will be in the frame no doubt. I bet Coyle's now pissed off he took the the County job, he would have been in the mix as well. Malky, of course, has already got his foot in the door. I'm certainly not expecting an inspiring appointment. I would be absolutely delighted to be proven wrong, but forgive me if I don't get my hopes up.
  10. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    A Sunday game would risk competing with the Scotland match though, which would potentially lower the crowd even more, especially for travelling supporters, plus maybe also issues with the existing Saints and Dundee training/rest day schedules, although that's just guess-work on my part. It would appear that the Friday chosen was the best of all available options. I'm sure that the committee will have looked at all possible opportunities presented to them and weighed things up accordingly. Also, I generally find that if criticisms or suggestions for improvement are constructive and explained well then they will be accepted in that manner and offered appropriate responses. The committee members who are posting on here had covered most points already, so maybe you can appreciate their (and others') frustration in responses to your posts. Difference of opinion is great, and is what makes these forums interesting, but it's how that opinion is presented that will determine the reply it receives.

    The first of those lessons probably being to put you on ignore
  12. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    I really hope you see a good crowd. Not only to give Cuptie a nice wodge of cash, but also as a payoff for the obvious hard work that's gone into the planning. Can't have been easy to get all of the old faces together, well done to all concerned.
  13. Tommy for Rangers

    No
  14. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Oh to be a fly on the wall in the manager's office if there is any substance to this
  15. Deadline Predictions

    What's the most successful piece of deadline day business we've done in years gone by?
