    Saints vs Livi - 9/3/19

    Tommy has been backed extremely well in the market by the club and it's time that those players started producing the goods. He said that certain players keep making the same mistakes and not learning, well I'm afraid Tommy is in the same boat- he keeps picking those players that are letting the side down. The gaffer is still the right man for the job, but it's time to be brave and play with attacking threat. We have the players to turn it round. Davidson and Spoony are prime examples of players that are not as good as other options in the squad at this moment. Callaghan and Alston are better options just now, give them a regular chance to show it. The back four were fantastic in our run of clean sheets, Craig started the season so well. Kennedy ripped teams up at points. Let's get the right formation, tactics and bodies on the pitch and we can get some results going.

    Saints v Hibs 27/02

    I'd go for the following (will never happen) Bell Same back four Alston-Callachan-Craig-Kennedy Watt Kane

    St.Johnstone v Aberdeen Saturday 23rd Feb

    Funny how we all the see the game differently. Jason Kerr stood out once again for me and him alone- sure Davidson but his body on the line and gave 100% as always, but the three of him, Craig and Goss were brutal to watch together, absolutely nothing centrally to give Kane any chance of creating anything what so ever. Goss plays the odd decent pass and ticks the ball over well enough, but we were lacking that number 10 type player that can run from deep. I personally would of had Alston on from the start centrally for that reason. Both goals were poor and Swanson is showing nothing so far to indicate he is going to have a happy return. I don't think Wright quite knows his best team now and I think he quickly needs to find a combo that works centrally. For me personally Callachan would be the first choice in that central position.

    St.Johnstone v Aberdeen Saturday 23rd Feb

    A central three of Davidson, Craig and Goss is never going to produce good football. Kane totally isolated.

    Rangers v Saints Saturday 16 Feb League Game 26

    Yet in our last game against them at McDiarmid it wasn't until Lafferty came on that they started to cause us problems. Defoe is a finisher and he can have a very quiet game and still be a game changer. Ultimately I'm glad if all three are out.

    We have a good squad which will start getting results once out this sticky patch.

    Murray Davidson

    Said it for years and often criticized for it. We all know what Davidson brings. He's at his best in a tight scrappy game, but and it's a big but, his central midfield partner is often left with a huge amount of work to do in order to keep possession and start attacking phases of play from deeper positions. Murray regularly is nowhere to be seen when centre-backs or full-backs need an option when they are put under pressure (a job Millar did so well for us.). I will never doubt his commitment to the cause and his willingness to put his body on the line for the club, but it's often been the case we play better football on the eye when we have a couple of central midfielders that are willing to attempt a possession football game. (Millar and Dunne the prime example.) I'd like to see us give the duo of either Callachan and Goss or Craig a run of games moving forward. Depending on the game I think Watt could be a good option in the 10 and then MOH playing on the last man upfront (in the position Tommy said he has been signed to play in).

    Hamilton Away

    I'd say that's the worst result of the season and I'm unusually angry about it. The simple truth is that the club has a higher calibre of player than Hamilton and we've gone there and barely troubled the keeper. With all the attacking players we have we should be creating chances. We've been backed fantastically well by the chairman this season- these players are capable of much higher standards.

    Saints v Celtic, Sunday 3 Feb, league game.

    Thought we defended well as a unit. Kerr and Joe fantastic once again. Zander clear MOM with a series of fantastic saves. Feel sorry for Tanser, he was at fault for the second goal, but apart from that he put a good shift in. Thought Goss looked very decent with some of his passing and with the threat we have from wide, I think he could unlock alot of teams from deep. Swanson didn't particularly impress me today, but I'd argue this isn't the sort of game he is going to prove his true worth. My main complaint today was Tony Watt. He's a cracking player, with a very good touch but ultimately his job is to put the ball in the back of the net. He had three opportunities to do so, or atleast make the keeper work, and he was lacking with all three attempts. Was disappointed O Halloran never got a chance earlier playing up against their centre-backs. Always going to be a struggle to create much from the right side when we were pinned back.

    Hearts v Saints at Tynie 26/1/19

    Tommy's away record speaks for itself, but that starting XI showed Hearts (a team that was on a bad run) far too much respect. The 4-2-3-1 has seen us play our best football. We move the ball far better and have options with forward passes.

    That has crossed my mind- what I would also point out though is that the club has lost some top earners over the past few seasons. Players who had been here a long time and I'd suspect were on very good amounts. Mannus, Macca, Millar, Dave, etc would of been higher earners for us. Steve Brown seems he is very much cut from the same cloth as his father. I don't think he will ever let it get out of hand.
  12. Got the job done early and then just went into preserve mode. Wasn't the most enjoyable game, but good to get some minutes into the lads legs after the break. Defence never looked under any threat (Hamilton's new striker looks like a fat Sunday League Player). Callachan continues to prove to myself he should be in our starring XI even when Davidson returns and Watt linked up well at times. Was pretty dissapointed in Kane, I'm a big fan of his and certainly can see what he usually brings to the side, but at times his play was sloppy, he slowed down play on a couple.of occasions and had a very weak attempt at goal. All in all, glad to be in the next round of the cup. Expect us to put in a better performance against Livi, but with the same type of result.
  13. Same team that played against Dundee for me.

    Certainly would, but in Gordon and Ando we'd be left with a decent pairing compared to what any of our rivals would be forced to play with if there first two choice CBS were sold? I dont want to lose either player, that said I'm sure Tommy will always have players in mind for the future.

    Another great signing this season. Shocked at the quality that Wright has been allowed to bring in by Brown. We have a very, very strong squad now with options in pretty much every season. I reckon we will see Jason Kerr leave in the summer to balance out the books a bit, but the way he is playing there is bound to be a big club coming in soon, I'm just glad there's a quality squad that can cope with the loss of any individual player.
