  1. I have a memory that Tommy Turner was captain for this and at the end he got fed up waiting for someone to come and present the Forfarshire cup so ended up just taking it from the table at side of pitch himself.
  2. Irn-Bru Cup

    Utd had already said they were playing youths as well and that it would be the Youth manager take this game. Be interesting to see if they stick to that plan.
  3. Yellow kit

    Last years top isn’t the one we keep winning in although is very very close to it. This years top is slightly different, the blue side panel is missing from this years top, is still under arms but doesn’t run down the side. Its so slight that hardly anyone would notice but I m guessing is one of reasons this years top isn’t up for sale. People would rightly be annoyed to buy a new top so close in style to last years one.
  4. Yellow kit

    Who did we lose to wearing Yellow this season ? Won wearing it against Kilmarnock Hibs and Rangers. White top has been worn once away to Dundee.
  5. Hearts v Saints at MURRAYFIELD

    That's not true, the players did start to head towards the fans to acknowledge but got little response from the fans who in the main had their backs to the pitch and were streaming out. The majority of the players acknowledged the fans and a small minority of the fans responded.
  6. Reflecting Well (Ex Saints in the News).

    Simon Lappin signed for Kings Lynn in Southern Premier
  7. Kilmarnock (A) - Premiership - 05/08/17

    Hoping to go to this. Prices look decent, £20 adults and only a fiver for u16. What strip will Saints wear, both our strips this year will clash with Kilmarnock.
  8. Saints v Dundee - 11/03/17

    Miguel Simao was an absolute gent today. Normally ex players visit directors / hospitality etc brief appearance on touch line and that's it. Miguel was at the Super J s, Main Stand, watched game from the East, happily posed for photos, chatted to folk, mover over nearer the FCU lads in second half, obviously enjoying his day. In return he got a great reception.
  9. Dave Mackay

    Went down to Stirling today and quite enjoyed. Higgins up front with Peaso for Clyde though, not Swankie. Fraser Wright obviously made a difference to a previously struggling team and I m guessing how he won man of the match. I thought Liam Caddis did ok for them as well. Bikey for me was the real star though, looks a really exciting player, scored 2, could have had 4, great pace and feet, bit light weight though. As far as I can gather he s signed as an amateur with them and so wouldn't be an expensive gamble. He s only 21 as well. On today's show there s no doubt he could be at a higher level then he is but 3 leagues up ? Spotted a few Saints fans in the crowd along with one of the board.
  10. Jeanfield v Fauldhouse - Tomorrow

    A quieter game yesterday, a dodgy penalty, an offside goal, one sending off and an everyone pile in scrap as the players left the pitch after the Fauldhouse lad that got sent off decided to come back out and confront the Jeanfield player as he came off.
  11. Stevie May

    Stevie just had his operation on Wednesday of this week and still faces another 9 months out. Copied the following from Prestons forum. Nice to see most of them giving him good comments on there. Let's hope his recovery all goes to plan from here. Preston North End striker Stevie May has had surgery to repair the knee ligaments he damaged in November.The Scotsman went under the knife in London on Wednesday and the operation went very well according to PNE boss Simon Grayson.May, 23, damaged three ligaments in his right knee in the 1-1 draw against Fulham at Craven Cottage on November 28, shortly after coming on as a substitute.One of the ligaments has healed naturally after a period of rest and rehabilitation, with the surgeon able to concentrate on repairing the other two.Grayson said: “Stevie went in on Wednesday for the operation and the surgeon was really pleased with how it went.“At the time, he did damage to three ligaments, one of which has since healed itself which is great news.“The other two had the work done to repair them, with one of those not needing as much work as first thought.“It is still going to be six-nine months but the surgeon was pleased with the outcome.“That is good news for Stevie, he will get as much attention and care from everyone on his road to recovery.“Six to nine months is the standard recovery time with the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) which has needed the most repair.“He didn’t have the operation done a few weeks ago because they wanted him to have the time for the other ligament to repair by itself - if that one had needed work done, in the long-term it could have caused him problems.“We are delighted that has healed naturally.”
  12. St. Johnstone FC V Aberdeen - Saturday 6th February 2016

    What was on the banner lads down the front had ?
  13. St. Johnstone FC V Aberdeen - Saturday 6th February 2016

    I reckon with It being advertised still on Aberdeenshire website as there being a cash turnstile but the only bit of the ground not sold out to Aberdeen fans being the family stand then we could see more Aberdeen fans than there is room for them. I could see them bringing more than the approx 4000 there would be room for them for in the normal bits.
  14. St. Johnstone FC V Aberdeen - Saturday 6th February 2016

    Am I right in thinking Aberdeen have the normal away stand and part of main stand which is all ticket and sold out ? I presume their fans can also go in Ormond stand and pay at gate if they re families ? East stand is pay at gate ? I would expect Aberdeen to bring a massive support so do we think Ormond could fill ?
  15. Saints vs Hibs LC Semi 30/01

    I think Liam Craig is exactly the type of player we need just now. Never gives up, we need to just dig out a couple of wins from somewhere and get back on track. Top 6 is still very much a possibility and that in itself is a great achievement for us. Last few years really upped the expectations of fans, not saying that's a bad thing. Two things from yesterday that I don't think have been mentioned. Maybe I m getting old, but boys getting themselves chucked out for setting smoke bombs off before the games even started seems a bit is a waste to me. The bloke on the tannoy confused the hell out of me, think he gave the time of Hibs goal wrong first of all, then when Hibs made a sub he gave that as 82mins, I was just going with all that so from thinking 8 mins left to then the board going up 30 secs later came as a bit of a shock.
