    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    I have always found the Portuguese to be very polite, I am sure they will do their best to keep the score to a 3 goal margin.

    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    Surely no great surprise to those of us who were aware that Albania are not a footballing superpower. Puzzled, as heat seemed to be a factor, why we only arrived in Israel the day before the game. Were there safety and security issues?

    Saints v Celtic sunday

    For once I think the international break is coming at a good time for us. A chance to forget and refocus.

    MOTM Game 14 Saints 0 v 6 Celtic

    Was tempted to go for Swanston whose act of temperamental indulgence in the second half at least made the rest of them dig in and restrict the damage but stuck with Zander.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    After the Betfred Cup game, when we parked the bus, there were plenty on here demanding we have a go at Celtic next time. Well we did and look where it got us, give Tommy a break he certainly deserves one. As for claiming Celtic are p**s poor, how many international players did they start today?

    Why don't they put the final on at Midnight and get the whole thing out of the way in less than 24 hours?

    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    Yes, I seem to remember Motherwell were in that particular group and we beat them home and away also. An inside forward called Ronnie Wright scored a wonder goal at Fir Park.

    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    I can remember a similar scoreline at Muirton in our first season back after promotion from the old B Division. Again a League Cup Section game. Crowds were not segregated in those days and I remember a Celtic supporter congratulating us on promotion and then offering a £5 bet that Celtic would score first. £5 was a lot of money in those days and nobody would take him on. Saints then scored and the fiver disappeared but out came a £1 note with the challenge "I'll still back my team, this says Celtic will score the next goal". Again we were all feart and again Saints scored. Out came a ten bob note and he was just getting into a fresh challenge when another Celtic supporter appeared with the words "see you - yous is a f**king Jonah, every time you open your mouth that lot score". He emphasised his point by belting the other guy at which point Tayside's finest got involved and removed both of them.

    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    Celtic are still in disarray not least because Rodgers appears to have lost confidence. He is supposed to be on £2.25 million (bankrolled in part by Desmond) so he won't be getting the sack soon as Celtic will baulk at the compensation levels. His other escape route via a job with a middling English club is probably shut off for the moment as down south they think any decent manager should be able to walk the SPL. That still means we will have to be up and at them. A clean sheet at half time and maybe a goal up and their fans will begin to lose patience. It will not be easy, unlike Kilmarnock we have a good playing surface and it was noticeable on BT that St.Mirren had narrowed their pitch.

    Sevco 2012 v St Johnstone 23/09/18

    Looked up the Bears Den to see what Attila's boys are saying. It has 2 threads, an official one which is being ignored, and another titled " "Good Guys v Catholic Mob" which so far has 60 responses. We are not the good guys! Most of the posters seem to be drunk or deranged (probably both) and in the midst of the usual ravings it can be discerned that they expect to win comfortably with 3 - 0 being the kindest forecast. Serves me right for looking but if we do put something over them the Den will be a good laugh tomorrow night.

    St Johnstone vs Aberdeen 15/09/18

    Fair point makes you wonder how VAR would have worked. Collum didn't think it was a penalty so presumably would not have asked for a review but would the Aberdeen players be able to persuade him to have a look. Alternatively, would the cricket DRS system apply with both teams given say one challenge each? If it was the cricket system my bet is Aberdeen would have used up their challenge long before. Then, of course, there was our penalty which if converted would have made the issue academic.

    Sevco 2012 v St Johnstone 23/09/18

    We will need to bring our A game and hope for a brave referee to get anything out of this game. This lot will try and kick us off the park if things start to go against them.
