    St Johnstone vs Aberdeen 15/09/18

    This was my first look at the new-look Saints team. It's clearly still a work-in-progress, but we already look significantly better than last season. Tony Watt still caused a couple of problems despite having something of an off-day. David McMillan scored again and looks like a good option to have. Blair Alston might actually be a genuine candidate for a regular central midfield berth. Drey Wright really impressed me in the first half. Jason Kerr and Scott Tanser were stand-outs at the back, combining solid defensive work with surprising technical ability at times. In terms of the other new recruits, Kennedy will do well for us but might be one of those players who regularly floats in and out of games. It's too premature to judge Callachan at this stage. It's pleasing to see him getting into good attacking positions, but I highly doubt he'll solve our most pressing issues in central midfield. Interesting to note that he's currently above Tristan Nydam in the pecking order. It looked like a penalty to me, but a draw was probably a fair result overall. Neither team could really get a hold of the game for an extended period of time. Willie Collum was desperate to make the match as stop-start as possible. As is regularly the case, he seemed keen to be the centre of attention. Aberdeen look a shadow of their former selves. This St. Johnstone team could quite fathomably finish in the top six. Looking forward to seeing how we develop over the course of this season.

    Callachan is the type of midfielder I was expecting Tommy to go for. Relatively young, albeit with plenty of experience. I imagine our transfer dealings would be complete after this one. See that we've also been credited with an interest in Danny Swanson, but there would surely need to be a significant departure in order for that one to even be a possibility.

    For me, it's 'Shaggy' and 'Jenkins'.

    They've only lost two.

    I'm hoping that she's a quality central midfielder who will be eligible for our men's team.

    They have four goalies though. Two are injured, one is available and the other is also available but unregistered. Burnley are just wanting to register the fourth goalie so they've got an option on the bench presumably.

    ''We need a Chris Millar replacement.'' ''Get over it! Chris Millar isn't coming back.'' Classic WAP.

    St.Johnstone v Rangers 19:45 27/2/18

    I think that every game matters, to be honest.

    Mannus Comrie Shaughnessy Gordon Tanser Willock Davidson Wotherspoon Scougall Craig Kane Something like that if Tanser is fit, although I can't see Craig in an advanced left position. Maybe Spoony on the left and Alston on the right.

    Hibernian v St. Johnstone - Easter Rd - 18th November 2017

    The starting XI suggests the opposite to me. How would a 4-2-3-1 formation work with that line-up? A holding two of Paton and Davidson, an advanced three of Alston, Craig and O'Halloran, and MacLean up front by himself? I doubt that Craig would be used in an advanced three. I'd be inclined to think that it's a midfield four of Alston, Paton, Davidson and Craig, with O'Halloran partnering MacLean up front (or playing just behind).

    Hearts v Saints at MURRAYFIELD

    Our recent dip in form has directly coincided with the departure of Ross Cunningham. Coincidence? I think not. #BringHimHome #RossWillSortIt

    Hearts v Saints at MURRAYFIELD

    Looks like our strongest available line-up to me, maybe with the exception of Liam Craig being in the XI instead of Paul Paton.

    Hamilton Accies (H) - Premiership - 23/09/17

    Sounds like a fairly reasonable request to me.

    Saints v Partick Thistle 19/8/17

    But RG didn't act like a 'keyboard warrior' nor did he insinuate that he's a better Saints supporter than you. So I'm a bit confused by your reaction.
