    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    They are under the roof of the Main stand as you look from the east. If your sitting half way up East Stand they seemed distracting to me. Don’t think they d be as bad if on roof and facing down on to pitch. Not sure there are any in East Stand.

    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    Was I the only one that found the new floodlights fitted in main stand very distracting and bright from the East stand. They appear to be far too low to me.

    Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    Quite like the polo, way overpriced at £32 from a maker that’s pretty much unknown though. Can t buy it anyway as the x- large I d need is out of stock.

    Will You Attend Celtic Cup Tie?

    Season Ticket holder and will go to game, I would understand if they moved the Saints support to just one stand and it wouldn't stop me attending. Ticket price and it being on TV might make me think though, if myself and teenage son are over £40 to get in and we can watch it at home I may struggle to justify on a midweek eve. One thing that slightly annoys me over last couple of years is Saints make no reference to Cup top up holders, having had one on both our season tickets since they were introduced it hasn't exactly been a good buy for the fans, last year we got nowt for our money. I know there a risk attached when buying the top up but a token, Cup top up holders get Celtic game half price, or a discount, even seeing them acknowledge the fact.
  5. Went with no expectations and ended up gutted, so unlucky for young lads although keeper was probably lucky to stay on after appearing to drag the Utd lad down with a couple mins left. Better team for nearly 80 mins, Paul McMullan hadn’t done much but his last 10 min performance turned the game.
  6. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
