    sleepless reacted to HOODLUM65 in New ownership   
    Just an observation , Steve Brown has been heavily criticed in the past for not letting fans in on what's happening within the Club and the minute he lets folk know the position , once again he is heavily criticised.
    Just saying.

    I think we lack a certain amount of belief, however the ‘youngsters’ in the team show a certain lack of respect to so called bigger teams a case in point Callum Hendry on Sunday.. I have seen enough so far this season to feel confident we have turned the proverbial corner... it would be good if we could hold on to the likes of Hendry & McCann for a couple of seasons... I agree with you re May & Hendry.. think they would be good for each other... both their work rates on Sunday were immense. Stevie in particular reinforcing why he is a Saints legend to many ... oh how I love our wee Saints team...

    On the Old High Street? Used to go there with my dad to buy snare wire and shotgun cartridges. Then next door (?) to the tobacconists' for a tin of  Balkan Sobranie.

    So why did they stop? Genuine question. I see a lot of hints on here from time to time about why they disappeared, but no one ever seems to just come out and explain it. From the outside looking in, all it looks like is the bizarre canonisation of a bunch of kids who can't be arsed to support their team any more.
    I agree that the atmosphere at McDiarmid is terrible, but that seems to be something that is Scotland-wide. Whenever I've been to any games abroad, fans sing and chant and bring colourful displays to add to the atmosphere. In Scotland, everyone pretty much sits silently on their hands (me included, of course). I remember a few years ago watching Saints play in front of a massive Hearts crowd at Murrayfield, but there was pin-drop silence to the point that you could hear everything the players were shouting to each other for the whole match. I'm not sure why it's like that in Scotland - is it lack of alcohol?

    Remind me what it was the club did?
      
     
    FCU should be in charge of the media at the club as the sure pulled the wool over the eyes of Saints fans!

    It's an absolute fact that the majority of the young ones were Sevco fans. 
    They were also starting to cause unnecessary trouble. Particularly the away games.
    Not a miss IMO.

    sleepless got a reaction from Cagey in Ex Saints Manager Bobby Brown dead at 96.   
    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
