    Celtic v Saints, Scottish Cup February 10th

    On the comedown probably.

    Celtic v Saints, Scottish Cup February 10th

    Every need for it, if it's the same wee laddie we're talking about. He was very lucky not to be thrown out, given some of the bile that was coming out of his mouth. Coked/Buckie'd up, or whatever he was, there's absolutely no place for the stuff he was shouting/singing at any football match, let alone a Saints match.

    MOTM Game 28 Saints 1 v 0 Livinston

    Jason Kerr. By a mile.

    Dundee v Saints 30/12/2018

    It was a Saints fan who had to choose man of the match (one of us Edinburgh bunch). The company he works for sponsored the game and put it down as him being the match sponsor as a joke. That meant he had to do the half time draw and choose MOM. He tried to choose Kenny Miller as a laugh, but they told him to piss off! Hence his choice of Ralph.

    Jason Kerr

    Bates is also older than Kerr, so that just proves the reason given for not calling up Kerr was a load of bollocks.

    Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    What size did you go for in the end? Hopefully you ignored the sizing on their chart and went one size bigger! My son is 4 and the size 8 junior fits him perfectly. He's pretty tall and skinny for his age, though.

    New Assistant Manager required

    Wait until you see Maybury in action on the side of the pitch then - a refereeing friend of mine said he is the worst he's ever encountered for arguing and shouting at the officials!

    Player Contracts + Transfers

    Yep, most of the Hearts fan I know reckoned he wasn't even good enough to have been in the Hearts team when he got called up for Scotland.

    Tommy Wright's position (title edited)

    Three at the back works well with the correct personnel. Unfortunately we don't have that available to us. Joe and Ando in particular, look completely lost in a back 3, whilst our wing backs are not good enough to provide the attacking width in this system either. My main concern is the complete lack of movement off the ball. We don't seem to work anywhere near as hard as the opposition do when we don't have the ball, both when attacking and defending. The number of times one of our players has the ball and there are absolutely no options for a pass available is criminal. Wtf are they doing in training all week?

    Scottish cup 4th round draw Monday 4.45

    It was absolutely pissing it down in Glasgow this morning for an hour or so. Drive through from Edinburgh was brutal. Be amazed if its not waterlogged after that rain, particularly with the snow melting as well over the past few days.

    Jack Ruddy has just signed a 2 year contract extension at Wolves, so he's definitely not been told he can leave. Also, I thought McGrandles signed a 2 year deal at MK Dons in the summer, in which case he's not out of contract either.

    St.Johnstone v Aberdeen - 13th December

    It is down to the coaches, according to someone close to Zander who we spoke to after a recent match. Tommy supposedly wants his keeper to stay on the line and the defenders to attack and clear the crosses. That's working well.......... It's fine when you have a Frazer Wright, Duberry etc who will do this, but we've not got that kind of player just now. Seems madness to stop a guy who's 6'5, and has the advantage of being able to use his hands, come for a f**king cross.

    I might be in the minority, but I thought Maksimov was far more impressive than Dorley in both legs. His movement off the ball, the use of his body to hold off defenders (and his finishing ability, obviously) was on a different level from any of our strikers. No chance we would be able to afford him though. I'd definitely take Dorley if we could afford a transfer fee for him, although I do think we have a greater need for both a proper striker and a left sided midfielder.

    Europa League 2017 - 18

    Yep, they're no mugs. They've got to the group stages twice in recent years. Them and BATE's performances in Europe recently have given the Belarusian League a higher country coefficient than Scotland.

    Europa League 2017 - 18

    No they're not. They are seeded in the 1st Qualifying Round and are playing the Faroese team we could've drawn. They finished 3rd in the Belarusian League last season, 2 points above the Minsk mob we played in 2013/14.
