  1. Nice wee article ... seriously being denied penalties since 1885
  2. Who would have thought we would be entering this match with a chance of overtaking Hibs and climbing in to the top 6 with a game on hand! I was at the Hibs game at the start of the season and when we grabbed the equaliser it felt like we had won the cup... if we put the same effort in at the next Hibs game then who knows. If we win we would enter the top 6 and still have a game in hand!! COYS
  3. I do believe, (I was told this when St Mirren played at their old ground) that the reason there is no cash gate is because there was some swickery going on at the turnstiles, say 1500 crowd and 1200 receipts. To avoid cash disappearing their games were made all ticket, I only found this out because I had to buy a ticket at McD for a game that was so not going to be a sellout, had mentioned it to a Paisleyite and they said there was pilfering at the turnstiles ... it kind of makes sense ... although irritating if it’s the only option to get in
  4. I think we will look back on this game as one of missed opportunity! I don’t know about anyone else, but due to recent results I was considering a 3-0 defeat from Celtic as positive, so really didn’t go in to the match thinking anything other than hoping we kept the score in single figures. Now that is bad... for long spells today we matched Celtic and certainly didn’t play like they were 44 points ahead of us! A wee bit more belief and application I think we could have got a result. Watching the leaders today I understand why they were knocked out of Europe. Not that anyone should worry, as long as the quadruple treble is still achievable, and they stop Rangers winning anything then the majority of their supporters will be happy.. it’s really difficult to win a one horse race.. quite a sad indictment of Scottish football...
  5. Must have changed just googled it last night can’t remember if it was the same site! But suddenly I feel even more pessimistic Madden ... awh naw ...
  6. Kevin Clancy... named as ref for today? Unless it has changed
  7. At the end of the day who cares, I wouldn’t stay away from watching my team just because the Chairman was a Victor Meldrew. Folk will always find an excuse not to support their local team, it’s too dear, it’s too cold, the football is rubbish, won’t watch the old firm, don’t like all seaters... the list is endless. I don’t think the reason the support is poor is because of the Chairman/board in particular, although I do think SB could probably suck the oxygen out of any party, and I do agree with previous posters, a big opportunity was missed after we won the cup. It’s down to personal choice for what people want to spend their time & money on, not the Chairman .... there are many flaws in the way the club is run, but the onus is on the punter whether they want to turn up or not.
  8. It’s the nature of the beast, I wouldn’t read too much in to it at this stage. To business men it will always be a business, we as fans can afford to be more whimsical about the club. Just think we should live more in the moment, how many times do ‘star’ players move on, only to be replaced by another ‘star’ player.. enjoy what’s on the park rather than what’s going on behind the scenes... we can hardly criticise the chairman being negative when we are just as bad ourselves... COYS
  9. I know this sounds crazy, can’t believe I’m actually saying this again, but I love Willie Collum, he is soooo unlike the other pro old firm refs! It may seem like I am complimenting him, however I find him usually inept towards both sides! On Sunday I actually thought he had a good game. In the main let the game flow, and wasn’t swayed too much by the opposition fans. Unlike other refs when it comes to the old firm, I think personally we are in with a shout should we get Willie Collum as our ref.
  10. I think we lack a certain amount of belief, however the ‘youngsters’ in the team show a certain lack of respect to so called bigger teams a case in point Callum Hendry on Sunday.. I have seen enough so far this season to feel confident we have turned the proverbial corner... it would be good if we could hold on to the likes of Hendry & McCann for a couple of seasons... I agree with you re May & Hendry.. think they would be good for each other... both their work rates on Sunday were immense. Stevie in particular reinforcing why he is a Saints legend to many ... oh how I love our wee Saints team...
  11. On leaving the ground we met a few opposition fans returning with drink from the local supermarket, obviously having left at 1-2 they were in cheery mode, until it dawned on them their winning celebrations were premature! Never a good day dropping points, never mind dropping points to a ‘lesser’ team, and one they thought they’d have an ‘easy run out’ to. Don’t you just love supporting a diddy team!?
  12. I remember at the time talk of the purchase of Muirton Park and being disappointed, not because it was being raised to the ground, but because I lived a ten minute walk from the ground... to be honest I really didn’t think it would happen.. then as the months progressed and it became clear a deal was being done I was unhappy... Muirton was to me the home of St Johnstone. Surely a purpose built stadium would rip the memories/soul from the club? I was lucky enough to have a friend who worked for the contractor who built McDiarmid so was given a guided tour of the work in progress! I don’t know if it was seeing a brand new facility but I remember coming home from the visit and feeling perhaps it might not be the worst thing that could happen. The last game at Muirton was bittersweet, on one hand I had watched the highs of European football, and next to the cup final team the best Saints team in their history.. but in reality Muirton was a decaying stadium badly in need of investment. The first season at McDiarmid to me was right up there with all the happy memories of watching Saints, we were a first division side managed by Alex Totten, and we had a reputation for fast attacking football, so here we were in a shiny new facility watching attractive attacking football in a league which was competitive. I don’t think you will find too many Saints fans who were at the Airdrie game and don’t rate that as one of their favourite games. I think history will dictate that McD has been a lucky ground for Saints, probably our longest unbroken run in the top flight, forays in to Europe, and of course THE cup win! It would be hard to find too many negative things to say about McDiarmid? I have good memories of both, however for me it has to be McD.. something I thought I’d never say...
  13. They are bad at answering the phone... worse on a match day! I tried to call between 9:30 and 11:30 and no-one answered the phone ... had to go up to the ground! Pretty bad for a professional club!
  14. Goes without saying I’ve my ticket... old enough to remember being dumped out of the cup in places less salubrious than McD .... so COYS !?!?!
  15. 2014 semi against Aberdeen at Ibrox 3000 Saints fans, one game away from THE final!? Once upon a time I got excited about giving home fans seats away to away fans but now I am more pragmatic.. I’d rather the seats were filled. Only stipulation that the Saints area is a Saints area, no away fans infiltrating, I draw the line at having to sit beside them!
