  1. Great stuff. Tight league now with only 10 points separating top 8.
  2. I was watching the Scottish trad music awards on the telly last night and they had a section listing the folk who have died this last year and one of them was a Bruce Marnoch. Any relation? incidentally, the awards ceremony was in Perth.
  3. ...and after Celtic only drawing we are only 3 points off the top of the league.....: )
  4. I was just as sad and did the exact same. I don’t think there were 110 by the end of the game : )
  5. We could always offer Usain Bolt training facilities now he has left the mariners. Would certainly raise the profile of the club.
  6. Re Bertha Park, perhaps the club sending a one game family ticket to every new house would encourage attendance?
  7. I think a part of the problem for smaller clubs like saints is that there is far too much footie now, what with the expanded European cups and internationals as examples. Plus we have epl games on the telly. Add in the incompetent league management up here with the likes of ignoring the ‘wrongs’ of a couple of the big clubs and as a result folk have got jaded/bored/fed up/angry. Given the number of game rearrangements our league now has I don’t bother putting fixtures in my calendar anymore. And as for international breaks.....just give Saturday footie every week
  8. Very satisfying that after all these years we can still rely on old dependable.

    Well I managed to egress out of the A9 exit quite sharpish, so thanks saints.

    The club have put something on the OS advising of arrangements for away fans, which is great. The gate at the north end will be opened to let away fans in. There is also mention of how fans egress (what a great word) but no details. The assumption seems to be that all home fans live locally and do not want to use the away exit (wherever that is) and will exit onto Crieff road. It would be great if I could exit onto A9.
  12. A very entertaining game, from both sides. That should get the Punters back.
  13. I’m bringing 3 Hibs fans along with me, and last time I did that we got well humped. Anyone know if the exit direct to A9 has been sorted yet?
  14. Can we have this guy on loan? LMAO https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45147692
  15. I have Ingerland in my works thingy, and it pays out for the winners and for the team that come second so a get a payout if ingerland win their semi. A wee bet on Croatia means a win-win for me......
  16. all too quiet on this game so bumping this up to get some chatter going....... who's going?

    Indy Ref 2

    Don’t you think that the Uk gov is subverting the will of the people as you put it by their behaviour not just this week but over quite a while? And of course, a yes to Indy does not mean we remain in Europe, that would then need another vote for that. At least if we had Indy we in Scotland would decide what we do, not the Tory WM govt we have currently. And what about the promises by fluffy etc? Oh, and the latest by fluffy is that we are no longer a partner in the UK, we are now only a part of it.

    I know of a lot of no voters who would switch, and this was before this week’s farcical vote in WM. When you consider the news feed we get, and just how one sided it is, it amazes me that so many have changed their minds. The mainstream media impact perhaps is declining, certainly the number of regular watchers of Tv and radio news programmes has gone down considerably. I saw somewhere recently that only 1 in 20 in Scotland listen to a morning news prog.
  20. same boat. not had any this season and most of last. I'm still a ST holder.
  21. And this is not so funny. Read the last couple of paragraphs......sheer arrogance. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44129307
  22. What’s happened to em? I don’t think we have had one since early February.
  23. That site gives no indication of who HFC are. I did wonder where Myrie-Williams ended up.
  24. I missed the game and just watched the highlights this morning. What a well worked goal we scored! It looked too as though Williams played well, he seems to be getting better with each game. What was the crowd total?
