    Saints v Celtic, Sunday 3 Feb, league game.

    Reckon we should try Sean Goss on most set-pieces for the moment. Looks like he has a very good range of passing.

    I get what Saintly Child is saying. I've subscribed for a month as a sort of trial period and I'm not sure if I'll renew at the end of it. The full-match replays are very good for away games (when presumably we're using footage from other clubs' TV channels), but the camera quality is considerably worse for the home match v Hamilton. Even in 'HD', I can hardly decipher which player has possession of the ball at any point. I wouldn't consider it worth the money until they improve the camera quality.

    Not sure why it isn't allowing me to edit my post, but it's now Kane - 273 mins and McMillan - 81 mins

    Personally, I'm not sure why it would be necessary to get rid of Kane or McMillan. Don't recall many deeming it to be necessary at the start of the season when we also had Drey Wright and Stefan Scougall available. Drey Wright is now injured and Stefan Scougall has been told he can leave. So even with the addition of O'Halloran, we're actually one attacking midfielder/winger short of where we were at the beginning of the campaign (albeit O'Halloran is also capable of playing up front if necessary).

    Kane - 183 minutes McMillan - 80 minutes It was probably a rhetorical question but I decided to calculate it anyway.

    Likewise, I find your line of thinking to be quite incomprehensible. You talk about Michael O'Halloran's 'heyday' as if he wasn't playing quality football for us a mere year ago. I really doubt he has degraded into a hopeless case in the space of twelve months. Stevie May, on the other hand, is a different kettle of fish. Given the nature of his damaging injury and subsequent performances since then, it would sadly be more accurate to suggest that he may fail to capture the form of his 'heyday'. However, given certain players' propensities to reserve their best football for when they're employed by St. Johnstone FC, one must never jump to conclusions. In the case of MOH (and Danny Swanson before him), surely it's a sensible thing to sign players who we can be pretty sure will do a good job for us? I don't really understand any thinking to the contrary. Stefan Scougall is an example of someone who we took a gamble on. By our standards, he was on a very high wage. Ultimately, his signing was a waste of time and money. There's nothing wrong with that. You win some, you lose some. As far as Tommy Wright is concerned, his recent attacking acquisitions (Kennedy, Wright and Watt) have all surpassed expectations thus far. But when there's also an opportunity to bring in a tried and tested player of attacking quality, Tommy will quite rightly be interested. Especially when you take Drey Wright's injury into account. Granted, MOH's Ibrox move was a blot on his copy book. But it's no secret that a large number of their supporters took against him from day one (mainly for unedifying reasons). His performances didn't set the heather alight, but he wasn't given too many opportunities to impress and he was very much treated like an outcast during the Caixinha era. He moved as far as Australia to escape their stranglehold. It hasn't worked out for him there and he now has the opportunity to restart his career in Scotland without the constraints of Rangers and the negative influence of their prejudiced fanbase.

    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'.

    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.

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

    I think that every game matters, to be honest.

    Heart's v St Johnstone 03/02/18

    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.
