  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Millar was the most composed player we had on the pitch on Saturday. Once he was subbed off we seemed to lose our shape centrally at times and big gaps appeared in the areas he was covering. I know there is the argument that he can't last a full game, but if we could get 15 full games out of him and several appearances I'd think we'd regret letting him go for next season, especially if Davidson moves on as well. Spoony could certainly be used more in a deeper role in the middle, but apart from that I think we will be pretty light in terms of quality in the middle of our team. As for Joe, I prefer him at full-back. Hes decent at full back and his throw ins take pressure off us when in a defensive position and is an attacking weapon when further up the park. Whilst he does a decent job in the centre, I'd like to see us bring in a commanding figure centrally. Someone that isn't scared to put his head on the ball. Liam Gordon could be the man if given time. If we went with a pairing of any of Kerr, Ando or Gordon in a two or a three I'd be ok with that- but some experience wouldn't be a terrible idea.

    I would be pretty happy with the signing of Murray. He's not the best footballer in the world technically and their is alot to work on- but as a younger player his game can develop. It would be good to have a little pace and someone able to run the channels. His energy is a handful at times. I actually think a partnership of him and Kane might be able to work.
  3. We were pretty toothless all day, with Dundee looking average at best. Don't feel we learned anything particularly new from this game. Two weak goals to give away. The second from a stupid, needless foul from Spoony. Glad to see Scougall back, nice wee flick to lead to the goal. The summer rebuild will be interesting.
  4. Macca Memories

    Ultimately I wouldn't look past his goal in the final, but my lasting memories of Macca will be the fact he gave 100% every time he wore our shirt. For a couple seasons he was exceptional and without him Stevie May's wonder season may never have happened. His link up play and intelligent work was superb that season. An all time XI player for myself after his contribution to our greatest ever team. I hope Hearts are giving him a nice salary in what is likely to be his last big contract. All the best Macca

    This is a move that suits both us and the player. It pushes us to take the step forward of changing our forward line and it gives MacLean a higher pay day in his last season(s). I'm genuinely surprised Hearts are interested as on the whole, he's nowhere near the player that he used to be. Far too many games where's he's offered very little. Chris Kane looks ready to take up that role, but with the added energy his youth brings. MacLean has been a fantastic servant for us and one that will always be remembered forgiving 100% in every game. His contribution to our latest success has been huge. It just feels like the right time for him to move on and us to reshape our attack.
  6. St.Johnstone v Motherwell - Saturday 7th April

    Found that very boring and stale. Kerr and Williams the stand outs for me. Looked solid at the back, but very little creativity and dreadfully slow in the final third. We desperately need pace next season.
  7. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I certainly think Anderson has plenty left to offer the club. I'd be happy going with the same four central defenders from this season for next season. For me personally, Steve MacLean is no longer anywhere near the standard he once was and it's time to thank a legend and wish him all the best. Chris Kane can fill his role. I'd love to see Tanser given a chance in a forward role. Think his deliveries from a more forward position could create plenty of chances. As for Johnstone, I can't believe he is the best we can afford. I've seen nothing from him to suggest that he is any sort of level that would see us move back into the top six. I'd also be looking to move on Forster, Watson and Willock loan shouldn't be extended.
  8. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Not particularly no, but then who of our current squad can you really say that about? I'm not saying he's done enough to warrant a definite new deal, but I think we need to know that we have a better player secured. As has been said, on our budget how many players of higher quality can we go out and realistically bring in?
  9. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Very torn on this one. I think I'd give Alston a new deal if his demands are reasonable. He continues to show flashes of the player I thought he would become for us, but he's not quite been the player I hoped he would be. He can play in either a 4-5-1, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 and has plenty energy about him. Let's give him one more season to see if he can get some consistency.
  10. Aberdeen v St Johnstone 31/03/18 3pm

    There is no doubt that the squad will need addressed over the summer. Ultimately we have several squad players that are not good enough to reach the same levels that we have seen in the last few seasons. It's Tommy's job to try to push us towards the standards we previously matched, even if it is lofty ambitions for a club our size. Chris Kane has been fantastic since coming back and is ready to make a big impact and would be a great partner for a fresh new striker, whether it be McMillan or a new option. Scougall is a player that can be very effective here with the right players around him and Jason Kerr looks a first team player in the making. We still have two good goalkeeping choices as well. I also think Anderson and Millar have something left to offer the squad. Hopefully Easton will manage a better season injury wise aswell. There is plenty to work with there for Tommy. Ultimately three or four good solid options could well make a bigger difference for us.
  11. St Johnstone vs Hamilton 28/3/18

    Looked good in the first half and got a little scrappy in the second half. I think the formation suits the players we currently have at our disposal. Kane impressed again and the back three looked solid. Thought Craig had a decent game. Only downside was Willock. The lad was completely clueless, needed Tommy and his team mates to tell him where he should be positioned every two minutes, he wandered about like a headless chicken and pretty much did nothing what so ever. Shocked at how a lad with a Man United schooling can look so clueless.

    I'd let Macca, Johnstone, Watson and Forster move on in the summer. Think there is now better options we can pursue.
  13. Good result that saw the game changed by the deserved sending off of the keeper. It was a very robust performance from us and if I'm totally honest I can understand why Hibs fans would leave thinking we were pretty dirty at points. They certainly weren't shrinking violets either, but at times our tackling was fairly late and clumsy. The lads gave plenty effort and I'm glad Kane got a goal to match another very good performance. His two misses were really poor and I was a little worried his confidence would dip. Shame Millar had such an off night in the first half, but what was even more disappointing was the fact that Liam's passing seemed to go downhill when he switched centrally. For me it's essential we move Tanser forward into left midfield for next season. The guy is weak in the challenge, but the balls that the lad can put into the box are excellent. His constant quality balls into the box are a real threat for us. I'd like to see us give him some game time in a more forward position once we are safe from the drop and Easton is back. As for McGinn, let's give credit where credit is due. He was the most talented player on the park and is destined for bigger things than Hibs. He ran the show for them, won possession several times, drove the ball forward continually and picked some cracking passes. His tactical foul was much the same as Alston- both tactical cheating and not really a big deal.
  14. Callum Davidson Bankrupt

    If that's the case, he's got what he deserved- theset tax avoidance schemes are based on greed.
  15. St.Johnstone v Rangers 19:45 27/2/18

    Let's not get too worked up over a defeat to a team that has a budget way above ours (and way above what any sensible accountant would allow.) Willock looked dreadfully naive at points and Williams still has alot to prove that he's going to have the attitude that we need to help us in a dog fight. Let's get Millar back in the team and pick ourselves up against Hamilton.
