    Lomas is the most promising young manager in the SPL. If you can't see this then you're trying too hard to find faults

    I love Tade, but he's an extremely limited player. I simply don't understand why some people would rather have him start instead of MacLean, both could maybe work, but in a choice between the two then MacLean should win every time

    Some more encouraging(ish) news


    MURRAY DAVIDSON has revealed he could still stay at St Johnstone despite having his heart set on a move to take his career to the next level.
    The Scotland international has not signed the new deal on offer in Perth and plans to leave at the end of the season under freedom of contract.
    The midfielder is keen for a fresh challenge but refuses to rule out prolonging his stint at Saints due to the loyalty the club have shown him.
    Davidson said: “I’ve said from day one it’s not about money. When I signed for St Johnstone there were other clubs involved, the likes of Dundee.
    “I could have gone elsewhere for more money but I felt at the time under Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty it was the right career move and I’ve developed massively as a player in the four years since.
    “I’m at the stage now to take it further and moving is what I have to do. But I’d never rule out staying here because St Johnstone have been good enough to make me a great offer
    “I’m grateful for that but I’m out of contract and want to go further in my career. At this stage it looks like I’ll be taking that next step.
    “But while I’m here I won’t rule anything out completely because Saints have been good to me and to do so would be disrespectful".
    Davidson has been grateful for the support of his manager, Steve Lomas, during this key period of his career.He added: “Steve has told me all along that he would only have a problem with me if my
    performances dropped
    “But hopefully my effort in the games I’ve played has been fine.
    “I’m the type who likes to get stuck in and I’ll keep giving my all between now and the end of the season. The manager has been very good. He says he understands my decision about wanting to further my career and there’s no problem in that regard.
    “There’s focus on my future but all I can do is concentrate on my performances because if I let them drop people won’t be talking about me in a positive way.”
    Davidson’s commitment to the cause ensures he is desperate for Saints to grab a European spot, regardless of whether he is there next term or not.
    The vice-captain is suspended for tonight’s clash at Dundee but will be in the stands hoping his colleagues can maintain their push.
    He said: “Our next three games are Dundee, Hearts and Kilmarnock. All are difficult but if we can pick up a decent return we should be good for the rest of the season.
    “There are probably six or seven teams who can finish in the top three to qualify for Europe, with just four or five points separating us all.
    “The sides who are most consistent between now and the end of the season will get the Euro spots and we can be among them.
    “If we can go on a wee run we’ll quickly move up the table and the next three matches will give us a better idea of a gap opening up.
    “It’s important for me and the team to finish well. I’ll be up there supporting the team, even though I get nervous watching because I want the boys to do well. I hate it but I’m vice-captain so I’ll go along to Dens and give the boys my support.”

    'Bomber' Brown on Sky Sports News promising attacking football as they don't fear defeat anymore. Expecting them to attempt some form of cavalier charge on Wednesday so being solid for the first half hour could be vital, hold them out and we'll shatter any confidence allowing us to begin to dominate. No point being stupid when the games ours if we're smart

    Tade shouldn't be brought on until the last 10 minutes. His inability to hold the ball up, or link up with the midfield is a massive problem that simply can't be forgotten about simply because he harrasses defences with his physicality. MacLean probably wins more headers anyway

    Are we 100% finishing in the Top 6 this season or something?

    Does anyone know who's in charge of the St Johnstone youths? I'm not talking Under-20's, I'm talking younger than that, possibly Under 16's

    Just I was talking to some parents of the players today and there was a common theme developing that the youngsters are unhappy at how they're being coached. Seemingly the focus is almost solely on defending, with any flair being criticised and the coach intimidating some of the players. A few of them are even considering quitting the game.

    I've no idea how true these reports are, I'm simply posting what I've been told. But if it's true it needs to be sorted before we force people away from the game, and more than likely the club

    Fair play to you for responding. I am not a dyed in the wool Man.U. supporter but have followed their progress with interest ( as a fan of football) since the "Busby babes". However I am a dyed in the wool Saints fan who due to location and work commitments missed out on Saints previous Euro
    escapades but made it to Turkey.
    But that's another thread.
    Good luck.
