    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    I think the majority on here, me included, would prefer to see the back of Hamilton rather than St. Mirren. Rubbish pitch, the Gretna game, their attitude to the Foster v Swanson title fight to name but a few reasons for that attitude. Getting that into the players minds would be no easy matter, however. Although it may not have looked like it I feel sure the players did take to the field ready to do their best but for a start Tommy's selection did not suggest winning the game was a priority then Hamilton with everything to play for came flying out of the blocks. With the best will in the world the sub conscious mindset would be feck this for a game of soldiers, why start the holidays with an injury for nothing? I would not over analyse the performance, for our players it was simply a classic end of season game.

    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    I would think that very sensible. Hope Easton is well protected.

    Someone told me the other day that our coinage has been decimalised. Also is "contactless" not a funny word for a system that involves tapping a card against a small screen? Anyway old foggies like me don't hold the queue up at McD, my order has been the same for 60 years - a scotch pie and a bovril. Younger fans seem to wait until they get to the front before deciding what they want and they then spend more than my monthly mortgage payment used to be!

    One said "red card", one said "not sure". The third said "ah sure 'tis the very divil. Why don't we have another glass or two of this 18 year old Jamieson and then we could have another look at the tape.

    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    Agreed. It reminded me of a game I was called over to watch on the South Inch in the mid 1950's. It was some sort of mid week league match between Postal and the Police. Both teams were going at it hammer and tongs and eventually a mass brawl broke out and the referee abandoned the game. The PA and the Courier lapped it up.

    Hamilton v St Johnstone 18 May 2019

    Saw the St Mirren v Hamilton match on BT last night. It was brutal, how Willie Collum of all people only produced one red card is still a mystery to me. I fear Hamilton, knowing we have nothing to play for, will simply bring their A game - ie they will try to kick us off the park. I hope we can stick it right up them, they will be no loss to the league if Dundee Utd or ICT beat them and United would do our crowd average a wee favour.

    Stjohnstone v Motherwell 11 th may

    Aye right. Thomson said Kane dived but what was he supposed to do? The Motherwell guy clearly pushes him, he is right on top of Kane and their legs are tangled, no way he could have stayed on his feet. The penalty itself was a bit concerning. It looked from the Ormond end of the east stand that it only just eluded the keeper. When you see it on TV Tanser telegraphs where he is going to shoot but at least he gives it plenty of welly. A bit more work needed before we can have confidence that we will improve our poor penalty success this season.

    Those of you on here who wanted Liverpool to win the EPL might be interested to know that under the old system (2 points for a win, 1 for a draw) they would have. Also under that old system a win for St Mirren tonight would have put them in the box seat to avoid the playoff spot.

    Sevco better hope there was no mention of a possible role for Stevie at Liverpool. I don't think he has had a good week with the sons of William, what with McGregor's kung fu kick and whilst he might go along with the no guard of honour decision I am not sure he is enamoured with the real reason behind it.

    Mind you for once the undervalued description of results as "unbelievable" seems appropriate.

    Good, better than leaving the field open for Sevco to come in with a joke offer.

    Only way he can meet with Dave King, another Liverpool fan.

    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    I see the latest brainwave from those who run (?) Scottish Football is to turn the Championship into a 12 team league. At first I thought not a bad idea, but then I saw that one favoured option to achieve this was to add 2 colts teams! I wonder which 2 clubs would supply the colts? Anybody like to hazard a guess?

    Don't disagree with what you say about £200k being important but where does it come from in your figures?

    St.Johnstone V Dundee - Saturday 20th April

    Was that not what we used to call a "Dundee game"? I know they are not down yet but on the way home I thought back to that game in 1962 when they won the league at Muirton and sent us down. Well as Del gestured to the Celtic support last week "up yours"!

    Scotland's shame

    The only club I can remember having its ground closed for crowd trouble was - wait for it - Huntly FC. Some supporters taking a short cut across the pitch at the end of a game allegedly pushed the referee over. Christie Park was closed for 2 months in punishment.

    Well said. Your 2nd paragraph is spot on, i had the phrase "never let the truth get in the way of a good story" quoted at me by a reporter I was complaining to about an inaccurate article. I took it further but in the end it was his word against mine.

    You are spot on. Everybody in Scottish football knows that Brown is a wind up piss artist who is way past his best and will probably move on to some easy pickings in Australia or Canada soon. Everybody it would seem apart from Morelos, Kent and Halliday who between them earn about £50k per week but between them do not appear to have the brains of a clucking turkey.

    Saints v Saints 16/3/2019

    Well you are certainly observant. That is very interesting, I did not realise Saints could tell how many were in each stand. Makes you wonder why on the odd occasion we have a big crowd they let too many into the East Stand and then have to move the excess.

    Thanks, you are well informed. I was puzzled as none of the usual sources were giving the crowd.

    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    Fair point. McLeish should certainly get his cards. We have 8 games left in this Group and there is no way we are going to improve on the play off place we already have in the bank. An excellent chance for a new management team to bed itself in without the need to organise the usual meaningless friendlies.
