  1. 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.
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Taking the bairn to the fitba

    From my experience, it's a lot easier to take them to a game when they are still unable to walk/run around. We took my son about 4 or 5 times when he was around 5-8 months old and it was fine. Just make sure you've got plenty of food and a pair of the ear protectors for him - it'll stop him getting a fright every time the crowd jumps up and cheers or shouts! The only issue is the lack of changing facilities at McD - fortunately the closest I got to changing a shitty nappy in the ground was in the boot of the car in the car park about 10 minutes before kick off! I had to take my son to a game when he was about 1 1/2 - 2 years old once - never again. He's now 3 1/2 and can almost manage a game - assuming he has a few toys and loads of food with him.
  6. MOTM Septic 4 - Saints 1 - 06/05/17

    Tricky one as no one really played well. Some schoolboy defending, overrun in midfield and not able to hold onto the ball up front. Thomson looked sharp for the first 5 mins he was on the pitch then disappeared. Gave it to Foster for a couple of decent tackles tracking back and his run and cross for the goal.
  7. Aberdeen vs Saint Johnstone Sat. 29th April

    Back in Edinburgh now. Shite game, great performance. I love this team. Now to try to persuade the missus to let me go to Parkhead next week!
  8. Alex Totten's Autobiography

    Aye, but he was a massive *** who had unfounded allegations made against him on social media, so he's seen as a d***. Whereas Totten. Oh wait.....
  9. MOTM Saints 1 - Hearts 0 - 05/04/17

    The whole team were excellent and put in a hell of a shift, closing down and winning pretty much every 50/50. Think I'll plump for Easton though.
  10. MOTM Ross County 1 - Saints 2 - 18/02/17

    Alston for me. Love seeing a player bursting forward from midfield like that. It was reminiscent of Harry Curran or Fizzy Scott with pace and no finishing ability!
  11. Away at Dingwall Sat 18/02

    Cracking day out. Not a bad first away game for my 3 year old son to go to. We started off a bit scratchy, struggling to keep hold of possession, but once we scored we settled down, started winning the 50/50's and were the better team. Scrappy first goal and County equaliser, but great strike from Kane for the winner. Not sure how the officials managed to miss the handball, but the linesman got the bizarre looking decision from Craig's corner right - the corner taker can't touch the ball again until another player has touched it (I had to ask a ref that one!).
  12. MOTM Saints 0 - Partick Thistle 1 - 11/02/17

    Zander made a couple of saves, Alston and Forster linked well down the right and Joe was ok. Apart from that, everyone else was crap. I thought Macca had a stinker and Muzz seemed miles off the pace and disinterested. Special mention for Spoony as well - totally shite today! Not much came off for Danny, but at least he keeps working hard and showing for the ball. I'll go for Zander.
  13. MOTM Saints 3 - Hamilton 0 - 28/01/17

    Cummins for his 2 goals and tireless work running the channels and stretching their defence. Just a shame he's offside so often. Alston had an excellent second half.
  14. MOTM Saints 1 - Motherwell 1 - 17/12/16

    Foster for me. Alston was excellent when he came on, his movement is very clever and he seems to read the game really well. Just a shame he couldn't put away that chance. Thought Kane and wotherspoon were decent as well. Muzz appeared completely off the pace today.
  15. MOTM Saints 2 - Ross County 4 - 19/11/16

    Swanson for the first 20 mins of the game. Everyone else was honking.
