  1. I may not be the best person to reply to your post but here goes. My wife was diagnosed with MND in July therefore I can appreciate anyone who has been affected by this disease will have strong feelings and compassion for anyone who has been affected by MND in any way. When Fernando was playing for Rangers I thought he was a typical mostly overrated obnoxious individual in much like present day Scott Brown at Celtic. We as football fans should be able to support anyone (or their surviving families) when they are hit with a tragedy such as has happened to Fernando Ricksenns family recently. I would have liked to think that we as Saints fans could have been above such petty behaviour such as your post or the few Celtic fans who posted “ one less *** “ comments or Rangers fan who thought it wise to taunt the aforementioned Scott Brown about his late sister. I 100% back the club for allowing this tribute to FR and can also say it had absolutely nothing at all to do with our defeat today. As I said my personal situation may well be clouding my views but I can see beyond my hatred of all things “old firm” in a situation like this and was happy to support the clubs decision.
  2. I chose not to go to todays game for various reasons. The first impression I got of the ground on tv was a very poor home crowd (part of which I am partly responsible). although by no stretch of anybodies imagination can you say we deserved anything from that match we were again screwed right left and centre by incompetent officials.
  3. I fully agree we got the RESULT we deserved today but the SCORE1-2 rather than 0-4 at the end of the season that goal difference may make a difference, and it could well be in a scenario that does not directly involve us (although refereeing incompetence/bias in our games does involve us)
  4. Is it a rule or just common practice, personally I don't think you should be able to loan a player to a team in the same division.
  5. Which manager are you talking about, Tommy or Gerrard?
  6. As she has seen fit to spout out despite a supposed confidentiality clause I suppose I can do the same from the “Peebles pubs” angle and what I heard was that Ricky stuck the head on Tommy after getting a bollicking at training. Although overall as a decent player for us his temper was always possibly going to let him down. He has seriously fallen out with someone at every club he has been at. In the long run I think we are better off without him.
  7. SJFC 2 the team previously known as rangers 1 Micheal O’Halloran 6789
  8. We will get a result today it will be either a win a draw or a loss.
  9. I don’t know which is more unlikely..........a new world record crowd or Kane scoring
  10. The Peebles Saints will be there. Another last minute winner for Saints would be excellent.
  11. PEEBLES PUB ALERT.............. Tommy and Richie Foster have had a massive bust up. This may well be absolute bollocks but I did hear that something has happened between them.
  12. Will there be any forums out with Perth ?
  13. Kinnoul will be in Peebles on league business this season come and enjoy the delights of some Peebles boozers, assuming there is not a Saints game the same day of course
  14. The week after that 7-0 gubbing we beat Septic thanks to a brilliant cross from the bye-line from Riseth(?) Sorry we must have commented at the same time. Someone with a better memory might be able to confirm who put the cross in, I don’t remember it as being last minute though.

    In all that crowd of drunks and reprobates (including fellow Peebles Saints my son and pal) only one person gave chase with me when my flag was knicked and he is still with Saints now.

    The two games against Luzern will take some beating. The away game was just a fantastic experience from every point of view, fantastic company at Edinburgh airport prior to catching the official charter, the flight itself a great booze filled experience, Lucerne is a stunningly beautiful city, the locals and the Saints fans I met there were brilliant company, the match was pretty good, the after match bus back to city centre was something else, Pickwicks after will live long in my memory and a pre referendum ear bashing from S. Cosgrove cemented my political thinking, the roadhouse street party including the team escapees was not spoilt for me despite having the Peebles Saints flag knicked after getting a whack on the head. The home game waslso pretty special
  17. Craig Swan in the Daily Record has us finishing top six says Tommy will get it right in the end.
  18. Watching BT Sports this afternoon the panel at the Dundee v ICT game seemed to think the Saints/ Stevie May deal may not be dead.
  19. NEWSFLASH FROM THE PUBS OF PEEBLES the deal is still on but then again that’s just me living in hope because nothing officially announced yet
  20. Stevie and his faither won the bools tournament at the bowling club down the road last week.
