  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I suspect we may not be getting all he facts on this one.
  2. Tam Scobbie

    Tam has never let us down but he's not quite good enough. I'd rather keep Clive Smith or bring one of the youngsters in.

    Reading Alan's comments makes me feel he really doesn't realise just how good a goalkeeper he is. He has been a tremendous player for Saints and I think he could easily have played at an even higher level. It is absolutely fantastic for Saints to have two goalkeepers as good as Mannus and Clark.
  4. MOTM Saints 1 - Sevco 2 - 21/05/17

    Thomsons inexperience showed at times, but he did bring some excitement to the Saints attack.

    Thats Caley down. Does that mean we can have Billy Mackay?
  6. MOTM Saints 1 - Hearts 0 - 17/05/17

    I've always thought Chris Kane was not quite good enough for this league, but last night he looked the part and seems to have added some serious pace to his game. I think I would now prefer him in the team the Cummins.

    He could be the replacement for Fraser Wright that we've been needing.
  8. MOTM Saints 2 - Dundee 0 - 11/03/17

    Paton was fantastic today. When you look at Tommy's acquisitions last year= Paton, Alston, Watson, Foster- you can see why he's such a highly regarded manager.
  9. Dave Mackay

    Agree Callum would be a good replacement for Tommy, but Tommy might well want to take him with him. And if its a move to a much bigger club (ie not Sevco) Callum might well be tempted if asked.
  10. MOTM Saints 0 - Killie 2 - 25/02/17

    Certainly seems like a mental blockage, Every time we have a chance to make a significant move upwards, at home and against a side below us - we bottle it. Time after time. Tommy is a great manager- but I think he has to carry the can for this one. Our set up was awful, the players seemed to have no idea what their role was, and we reverted again to hoofing long balls over our crowded midfield to our isolated forwards, who got no support from anywhere. I've never seen Brian Easton look so pathetic. He's a good player, but not a midfielder. And our other midfielders were mince today as well. I know we had players injured and suspended, but the available players were good enough to beat a poor Killie side if Tommy hadn't put them out in a formation they clearly weren't comfortable with and didn't seem to understand. We made Killie look better than they are. Really, really pissed off tonight. Thank God Scotland beat Wales or I would be even more depressed.

    I don't actually believe our referees are inherently cheats. I think they are basically cowards who don't have the bollocks to stand up to the loud noises generated by supporters of the 2 ugly sisters. Whoever is responsible for our refereeing standards should consider putting our refs through some sort of psychological programming. They should be taught that loud noises should not really influence refereeing decisions. Perhaps then we could get rid of the institutional bias that so clearly exists in our game. It's all in the mind. But I have to admit even an unbalanced psychological profile is not enough to explain Craig Thomson's decision. That one is right off the scale.
  12. Saints vs Celtic 05/02/17

    We might not have won this game anyway, but 2 (possibly 3 ) shocking decisions fro that prat Thomson certainly changed the whole pattern of the game. We were looking good for something out of the game before Thomson joined in. Surely there must be some sort of sanction on Thomson for this performance.
  13. Player Contracts + Transfers

    We desperately need a natural striker. I don't see one on our books.
  14. MOTM Saints 1 - Motherwell 1 - 17/12/16

    Thought Macca showed some touches of class in this match. Kane would have got my vote for effort, but I am still not convinced he has the quality for this league.
  15. Saints v Motherwell 17/12/16

    We should be ok for 3 points. After all, Motherwell are not at the bottom of the league
