    Of course there are always areas for improvement, but to me this statement is just bizarre. We've comfortably stayed in the top flight for over 10 years, recently won our first cup, had several recent European qualifications, and consistently appointed successful managers, and done it all whilst staying debt free, owning our own stadium and surrounding land and amassing £2 million in the bank, despite our fairly crap average attendances. On what basis are Saints not a well-run club? What else could the club do or achieve that would make it well run in your eyes?

    Anderson was totally done at this level and we'd be no better off if he'd stayed.  All it would have done was tarnish his legacy.

    Saw Chris Iwelumo on Pointless the other day. Now if he could be tempted to come out of retirement to link up with Macca and May we could score goals for fun!!!!

    Saints gaining points isn't as obvious as other teams gaining points right now

    Wasn't it Easton who decided to leave?
    Tanser won every header against Cole outside of the box but completely crumbled when it mattered.

    Only Tommy could play two strikers and still only have one up front. Awful stuff for all four goals absolutely amateur.
    My first game of the season and probably last. Stuff spending money watching guys not giving a care. How did Motherwell manage to get more fired up at half time than we did?

    I don't think we will ever know the inner workings as the chairman says one thing and the manager says another. We have had gaps in the squad for long periods of time ever since Chris Miller was frozen out. 
    Defence, central midfield and striker have all needed attention over the last few seasons. The fact there was never a suitable person filling it can't all be down to the budget that Brown sets.

    Good points, and agents seem to be issue with a lot of these deals, just sometimes saints seem to lack a contingency plan and put all the eggs in one basket and when a deal.falls down are left scraping the barrel, but tbh none us really know the ins and outs. 
    Hopefully get an experienced centre on a free or in the january window, there again Brown might decide there us no budget.
