  1. Europa League 2017 - 18

    It's harder to get to than Switzerland was too. I've decided to miss this one and gamble on us getting through to the second round and a trip to Sweden/Kosovo. I expect this to be a really tough tie for Saints, though.
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Really don't see why anyone's bothered about Scott Allan signing for Dundee. He's done very little at Saints' level. Every year there are a few posters on here who complain that Dundee are making better signings than us, and every year we finish above them in the league.
  3. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I wouldn't say the recent records of Spittal and Allan sound especially great either.
  4. WAP EXILES request to get their own Supporters Forum

    The fact that the other supporters group forums are barely used would seem like an argument for closing them down, not for going to the effort of setting up even more of them.
  5. New Kit launched

    That looks a lot better. Would like to see them with the socks swapped too though. Been looking at it tonight and is it just me or is the positioning of the logos a bit odd? The Joma 'J' seems too high and too near the neckline.
  6. New Kit launched

    Massive improvement on last season's, although personally I'd swap the sleeves around. And the socks. Not sure what happens when we play a team in blue and white stripes (like Kilmarnock).
  7. Europa League (Team/Transport/Hotels) etc

    Why avoid the train for Wales? Just because of price? £40 then a bux/taxi to get to that Lithuanian team looks good to me!
  8. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I agree with this but it wouldn't be the first time a player has kept us hanging on beyond the point that we actually need him. Dow and Swanson both come to mind. Even Stevie May's contract situation dragged out for longer than an entire summer, and O'Halloran turned into a bit of a saga too. Even Tade stalled on us and then signed for someone else. They're all different situations of course, but there is a bit of a consistent theme, which is that perhaps we allow things to drag out and don't do our business quickly/decisively enough. Very hard situation for Tommy when players have so much power, though.
  9. I Wouldn't Give Tommy Money Either

    Very harsh on some of those players. Particularly Lee Croft, who had some terrific games for us. Don't think I'd ever consider him to have been a flop.
  10. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I'll be pleased if we get Scougall, but can't help but feel he has string-us-along-all-summer-and-then-sign-for-someone-else written all over him.
  11. Tommy for Rangers

    Reading it again and I definitely see an insinuation of that. What's the "suspiciously strange starting line-up" bit all about? "Suspicious" in what way? I agree that Steve Brown probaby wasn't gutted about us missing out on having to go to Almaty, but I don't see what the connection is between that and our starting line-up.
  12. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Anyone know why Clive Smith hasn't even been on the bench for the last couple of games? Has he been injured? I'd have expected him to get a run-out towards the end of the season if there was any likelihood of us wanting to keep him. Feel a bit sorry for Watson and Coulson that it hasn't worked out for them, but not a massive surprise. Even though Coulson was probably on comparable money at York, I think there's quite a big gap between Saints' level and English League Two and he's probably found that out. Wonder if it'll make Tommy less likely to look at players from that level in future.
  13. Tommy for Rangers

    Are you seriously trying to suggest Tommy played an under-sterngth team in order to throw the tie? Absolutely no chance. Tommy was livid about that result and he's made it pretty clear in the past that he has ambitions for us to progress in Europe.
  14. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Interesting interview. I think he's a really good footballer and I've enjoyed seeing him in a Saints shirt, but he doesn't really come across as the most honest or reliable individual.
  15. HAPPY MAY 17!

    Easily the best day of my life - still get goosebumps looking at the photos. Is there anything Saints could ever realistically achieve that would top this? Only thing I can think of that might do it would be qualifying for the Europa League group stages.
