  1. really hard one to call, this. It's one of those, no matter what the outcome, you could say "I'm not surprised." Unless we were to score six, maybe. That would be surprising... It feels like we've been on the mend for quite a while now - how many unbeaten - but we still don't actually seem that resilient. It's hard to summon up much confidence. However, I'll say a win, by the odd goal
  2. he was just before my time but I was really proud that we produced a Scotland manager, and then Willie Ormond followed suit. He should certainly be remembered as one of our greats.
  3. And back in the old days of the 18 team First Division, for some clubs after about the end of February there was nothing to play for - no chance of relegation or winning.
  4. The current set-up is logically the best. But it just gets boring. Hamilton ACcies four times a season is four times too many. Likewise St Mirren and Livingston. Having said that, if you replaced those three with Dundee, Dundee United and ICT, I'd be happy enough with that. Can we not just boot the Glasgow/west coast clubs out?
  5. Guess it's encouraging that I'm disappointed with that result. A few weeks ago we'd have taken that without question. Onwards and upwards
  6. fortunately I'm not going as we always seem to lose when I go to Hamilton
  7. so that's why I'm in the top 10. And there was me thinking I was getting better at it...
  8. totally agree, but we were still shit.
  9. To be fair to Gibby his appointment as manager was an absolute hospital pass. We'd just gone part time, got rid of half the players and had no budget. Muirton was falling apart literally, only the South stand was usable after the Bradford fire safety restrictions and our saviour Geoff was not yet in sight. Alex Ferguson couldn't have done much better with Saints in that 86-88 ish period. So if you want the worst Saints team ever, you could probably just pick one of the sides we put out when we were in the bottom division.
  10. real shame about JC. I thought it was a great appointment at the time - Saints legend and he had done really well at QoS. It felt like the perfect appointment. Agree with Sixties and Dunc - he'll always be a legend here.
  11. Playing two Saturdays in a row. That's a novelty
  12. Ando is a hero forever at this club, but at the end it was obvious he was too far off the pace and he wasn't up to Premier league level any longer. He's not the answer on the pitch. As a coaching adviser maybe, but his playing days at this level are gone.
  13. According to the BBC we're playing Hibs again tonight. Not doing so bad this time, either.... 21:27 Score flatters Hibs St Johnstone 0-2 Hibernian Steven Thompson Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound
  14. well, that was mad. Got to be happy with a point with nine men. Indiscipline my arse - just shows the guys are determined to get stuck in and pull us up the table.
  15. £8m a year for a has-been who has won nothing much in years and, when the going gets tough, starts to lose it.
