  1. Motherwell (H) Premiership - 12 August 2017

    Just watched the Cummins incident a few times and I don't think he dived. To me it looks like his left foot gets stuck in the grass and he trips over. Pretty poor from him but I couldn't see anything that looked intentional about it.
  2. IRN BRU CUP

    Goodwillie and Ciftci.
  3. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Given the choice at the beginning of pre-season would you rather have had Sammon and Storey or Scougall and MOH? Cos I know what I'm happier with. Personally I'm still confident we'll add another striker. I'm also confident we'll finish above Partick.
  4. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Interesting perspective on it, but I don't see it that way at all. What you suggest is "other clubs getting their acts together" I see as other clubs slowly slipping back towards living outside their means. We've been here before, after all. For a lot of these clubs it doesn't end well. Saints, meanwhile, will be just fine.
  5. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I'm absolutely baffled by Kane's contract extension - especially when you consider we couldn't keep Scobbie. We could have sent Kane out to QoS until January without giving him the new deal. And of course he could go to QoS, score a load of goals and come back with his confidence high, but we've already been there with Kane when he came back from Dumbarton. Is Tommy really truly confident that the same approach will make a bigger difference this time round? Will be interesting to see who comes in now. Storey still seems most likely but maybe we'll get a surprise.
  6. New Kit launched

    True. But the other solution would just be to release an away kit that does its job properly in the first place. Mind you, it could be dafter - Celtic have gone for three green kits this season.
  7. New Kit launched

    Also, just noticed the Joma logo is different on the new shirts.
  8. New Kit launched

    There's a good view of the blue panels on the new kit here: Last season's looked like this: I do think the shirts and shorts may still be very slightly different shades of yellow, though.
  9. New Kit launched

    The blue side panels seem to be different too - so yeah, it's a new kit. Unusual to have a third kit that's not available to the fans to buy.
  10. 17/18 Objectives

    Tommy and the players come out with this stuff every season but it hasn't stopped us from doing well, so why change it? Remember Tommy also openly said he wanted to add quality and move us up a level this season (can't remember his exact words) - I think that says a lot more about his real ambitions for the season. Also remember the situation Hibs were in a few years back where they looked comfortably Top 6 for most of the season until Saints leap-frogged them and they ended up getting relegated. A bad run of results can put you in trouble very quickly, so putting safety first seems pretty sensible.
  11. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Seems a bit of a hasty move. Why not challenge him to make an impact in the first half of the season, with the reward of a new contract at Christmas if he does the business? A two year extension at this point is a bit of surprise, given the tightness of the budget.

  13. St Johnstone Shirts - ** Clearance Sale 2016 **

    A couple of seasons ago there was a really good range of Saints stuff on that site - but since then it's been awful. I'd always prefer to give my money to Campus but, not living locally, it's not always practical. Would be great if Campus were set up for online sales. Also agree with the above comment about the lack of a decent shop at McDiarmid. That's one thing I always thought they got wrong when planning the stadium.
  14. St Johnstone Shirts - ** Clearance Sale 2016 **

    You'd think TTL would be the place to get stuff like this, but nah. Check out their rubbish page for Saints, and compare it to the one they have for Partick Thistle. http://www.teamwearscotland.com/category/football-clubs/st-johnstone/ http://www.teamwearscotland.com/category/football-clubs/partick-thistle/
  15. Tommy for Rangers

    I'd be gobsmacked if O'Neill wanted that job. When he wants to leave Northern Ireland he'll be able to get himself a decent Championship-level job in England. Plus there's his Hibs background. I think Levein's presence is going to really restrict Hearts from making the best appointment. It's an attractive job but lots of strong candidates will be put off by the idea of having to work under him.
