    Saints v Hearts 5th December

    Seems to be great confusion about who was fouled by whom for the penalty. Liam Gordon, Murray Davidson and Tony Watt all mentioned in different accounts as the victim. Guess we will have to wait for the highlights.

    Old Perth - Picture Thread

    St John's Street early circa 1953? The car reminds me of going by bus to primary school one morning and being challenged by another boy (from another school): "What's your highest FGS?" I hadn't a clue what he meant, but apparently kudos were earned by having seen a new car with an FGS registration higher than anyone else had seen. GS and ES were the Perth registration marks, I think. After FGS 999 I presume it moved on to GGS. Happy days …..

    Hibs vs Saints 03/11/18 Game 12

    Watched the game on Alba, and thought Saints were definitely the stronger team in the last 20 minutes, but could have been 0-2 down at that point on another day. Nothing quite like a winner 'at the death'. Saints' discipline record seems to have been very good in the past few games - fewer fouls and yellow cards compared to opponents. Maybe a positive focus by the management team? Is Ross Callaghan the new Paul Paton? He can be hugely influential without touching the ball. Definitely our Mr Angry.

    Michael Doughty

    Decent article in today's Guardian about Michael Doughty, who spent a few months at Saints on loan from QPR in 2013. Played in five games apparently. Probably the only St Johnstone player to have attended Harrow School, alma mater of Sir Winston Churchill. Son of a former owner of Nottingham Forest.

    Celtic Allocation for Betfred Cup

    What do folk think is a realistic gate for this tie? I would suggest 6750.
  7. Alston's tackle - deliberate and cynical, but not life-threatening - would be an excellent example of why a 10 minute sin bin would be a valuable addition to the laws of the game. The difference between a yellow or a red card can be quite arbitrary.

    The Ideal Christmas Gift

    Saturday's Guardian had an ad for 'The Happy Puzzle Company' which offers team jigsaws for a large number of British football teams, including the blessed ones from Perth. Go to www.happypuzzle.co.uk/footy. Price quoted is £15.99 exc. p&p.

    Aberdeen v Saints 30/9/17

    Wasn't at the game, but can't help feeling that if Saints had lost to Celtic (and they could easily) but drawn with Aberdeen yesterday, same points total but maybe a different feeling about things.

    What has been your most memorable pre season friendly

    I remember a pre-season against Preston NE, late 60's. I had been vaguely aware of Archie Gemmill at St Mirren, but he was an absolute stand-out that night. Clearing a shot off the line one minute and setting up the winner within seconds at the other end. Class!

    A situation for which the wonderful word Schadenfreude is so appropriate.

    Old Perth - Picture Thread

    Great photos. The one above - back row l to r:Jimmy Woodcock (right back), Willie Clark (left back). Roy McLaren, ?, ?, and Archie Baird. Front: Billy Steel, Ernie Ewen, Ian Rodger, Billy Hodgson and Joe Carr. Woodcock was moved to centre half for a few games, and one wonders how many goals were lost at corners. Left back Willie Clark came from Hibs (and may have played for them pre WWII) - he only died within the last couple of years. Can anyone fill in the blanks?

    Swanson and Foster fined 4 weeks wages

    Is there still an SFA suspension to come, or was that an automatic two game ban after the Hamilton match?

    Stevie May got on for the last few minutes for Preston on Saturday.

    Decisions against us

    Just for a wee bit of balance, can anyone recall any incidents where we were a bit red-faced at a referee decision, blatantly wrong, which favoured Saints? I realise they are very rare .......
