    For what it's worth, I definitely found a stream for one of the games last season.

    Some people might know that I've not been keeping well for over a year although I'm much better now. During my stem cell transplants Tommy and the players surprised me with a video of well wishes. Liam Craig organised it all with the help of Gary (will fix it!). Our wee club are so special. Just shows the lengths they will go to!

    But he didnt. Just like he doesn't every time he gets those chances, see also the cup game at McDiarmid.
    Hes scored 3 goals in 18 months, and was first choice for at least 7 months of that. You simply cannot argue that's good enough.

    He consistently misses absolute sitters. 
    We lost to County in the cup because he couldnt get a shot on target when clean through on goal, and then yesterday, with the scores at 2-2 and just minutes left, he couldnt score with the two clear sights of goal he had.
    It's just a consistent inability to finish chances, which are costing us constantly, that wears you down with him.
    Since his loan spell at QOS in January 2018, he has 6 in 47 games.
    3 of those were in March 2018.
    Chris Kane has scored 3 league goals in 18 months, and you're having a go at folk for saying hes not good enough for us?

    Feel like folk have seen TW in charge for so long they're just itching for an opportunity to punt him, purely based on the fact they've not had a good moan in a while and want something changed. Change for the sake of change.
    We wont get a better manager than him. That's just an opinion, but nobodies coming in who'll win us a trophy, multiple top six finishes, and multiple victories away from home at bigger clubs. Our current form is poor, we look destined for a relegation fight, and the football isnt great to watch, but I'd be very careful what you wish for here.
    One poor transfer window can set you back months. One rash decision on a manager, followed by a poor appointment, can set you back years.

    Hibs fans also want Alan Stubbs as their manager again, and hero worship Derek Riordan.
    Ambrose would be a huge earner, and has a reputation for being an absolute clownshoes defender. The fact hes still a free agent with the CV he has should be a massive red flag.

    Dave Mackay is currently James McPake at Dundee. 
    Dundee can barely win a game and sit with one point more than Arbroath.
    Why do you think he would improve things?

    Cant imagine theres been many worse. 5 league wins in 2019 so far, over 25 games.
    Our last 38 league game record is...
    Wins: 13
    Draws: 8
    Losses: 27
    Points: 47
    That includes our 5 game winning run last October/November.
    If you look at 33 games, the split amount of fixtures, then just deduct 5 wins and 15 points from above...

    Are you going to claim that there was something positive to take from today? We've won about 6 league games this calendar year, and two of those games were against a Dundee rabble.

    He won that award 15 years ago. Stuff hes done off the pitch is fine, and if you want to pay your respects then do that, but it has no place being forced upon football fans to join in, when he had nothing to do with their club. I felt the same when we all got forced to have a silence for Nelson Mandela, who would never have known we even existed.
    Other clubs will have shown their respects at McDiarmid, in the first game after, which is my point. If a ex-Saints player passes before the next game, we have a minutes silence against Motherwell. Will it be repeated around every ground in the Country? That weekend, and then the next? Whats the difference?
    Rangers had already had a silence for him at Ibrox.
    Did every game in the Country have a minutes silence for McVicar? Even after we'd had our own?

    I'm saying we have the 8th highest wage bill in the league so its absolute pish to use a lack of money as an excuse for anything just now.

    Ricksen has nothing, nothing, to do with St Johnstone or Scottish football. He played for Rangers for about six years, two decades ago.
    Rangers had a memorial and minutes silence for the player at Ibrox last week, and have had numerous fan based events since.
    Theres absolutely no need for the whole country to be forced to have minutes silences for him after theyve already had their own grieving process. Theres been hundreds of former players who've died over the past five years who only get acknowledged by their own clubs, the first game after the death, and then forgotten about. 
    Jimmy Calderwood has dementia. If he dies from that on a Tuesday, and Aberdeen have a minutes silence on the Wednesday, are you expecting Saints v Kilmarnock, or Rangers v Livingston, to hold a minutes silence for him on the Sunday after?
    Ricksens young death is clearly a tragedy, but let's not pretend that the silences today around the country wouldve been replicated if he was a St Mirren player.
