  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. Ibrox latest...

    A situation for which the wonderful word Schadenfreude is so appropriate.
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. Reflecting Well (Ex Saints in the News).

    Stevie May got on for the last few minutes for Preston on Saturday.
  9. 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 .......
  10. Who is responsible?!

    Excellent - loads of fun. And the club dentist deserves mention - some magnificent gnashers there!
  11. Old Perth - Picture Thread

    Tom McMeeking, 3rd from left, back row? He was a regular supporter of Saint in the Sturrock/Clark eras.
  12. Ibrox latest...

    Another home cup tie! I'm no conspiracy theorist but the home/away ratio in the past few seasons is hugely skewed in favour of the former. Any exponents of probability theory care to do a statistical analysis?
  13. League cup draw

    What odds would the bookies be offering for another home draw for you know who?
  14. Forest want Tommy

    Maybe Leicester's achievements have made some managers reappraise what might be possible on a limited budget. I'd hope TW is among them and set his sights a wee bit higher. It doesn't help when vacuous media folk push the line that a cup win should be the limit of ambition unless your club is one of their favoured three or four (or more realistically, two).
  15. Keith Watson.

    Who was our last Keith? I can only come up with O'Halloran.
