    Of course there are always areas for improvement, but to me this statement is just bizarre. We've comfortably stayed in the top flight for over 10 years, recently won our first cup, had several recent European qualifications, and consistently appointed successful managers, and done it all whilst staying debt free, owning our own stadium and surrounding land and amassing £2 million in the bank, despite our fairly crap average attendances. On what basis are Saints not a well-run club? What else could the club do or achieve that would make it well run in your eyes?

    We are in a five team section and are sitting third and we didn't finish bottom of our (five) team Befred Cup group.

    Couldnt even bring myself to watch the highlights. Bit random but I would play O Halloran slightly behind May instead of 2 up front. I think we play too wide and when he plays he often cuts in and takes the ball a bit more direct. No point in  playing really wide and firing in crosses when we have no aeriel options. Keep the ball moving quickly on the ground and get that first goal. 
    Its much easier to play when you are in the lead rather than trailing all the time.

    I have been suggesting 3 at the back for a while now, because of the fact that the players aren't good enough.  An extra central defender to act as another pair of eyes to try and anticipate things a bit more couldn't hurt.  I would suggest that we need to get back to a position of being hard to beat, first and foremost, and then take the confidence that a couple of clean sheets give to push on.
     
    No idea why Tommy signed Vihman on loan when he hasn't had a look in since the start of the season.  Why not add him to a shaky looking defence, as he has, at least, had some experience of both domestic and national football, so could surely provide a bit of experience to the other 2.  This would let the left and right wing backs either push on or sit and make it a hard back 5 to break down, giving a platform then for the rest of the team to try and be a bit creative.
    I agree that we need at 2 centre backs.  Kerr needs to be taken out of the team for his own good, as this season is killing his confidence.  He needs to be taken out of the spotlight.  Duffy is not good enough as a centre half, and Gordon hasn't shown himself to be any better, when he was in the team.  We need to let Callaghan, Swanson, McMillan and Vihman go and use the wages to get in 2 experienced centre halves.

    Waited until today to post because I was angry  with some of our so called supporters on Saturday! Wanted to make sure I was a bit more rational. 
    I don’t adhere to ‘I’ve paid my money I can shout what I like’ 
    Zander was receiving pelters to the point where he turned round to the Saints fans to show his displeasure! 
    Honest to goodness what are some folk ‘on’! Do you think that’s going to help a team so obviously low on confidence! It made me feel uncomfortable so can only assume players must feel the same..
    Am I happy with the way things are going?  no I am not, but we are called supporters for a reason! 
    If I’d felt as bad as the person who was doing the shouting .. you know something I just wouldn’t come back simple! 
    We’ve had a good run for ten years so 10 week 10 month slump.. suck it up! Relegation well why not us .. not too good to be relegated.. 
    In general I think we have a loyal wee bunch of fans .. just a shame there are a few ‘nougats’

    I can't understand the constant critisism of Tanser. When he goes forward he is very comfortable on the ball and takes men on no problem; he also can take a brilliant free kick.
    Like everyone else on the team just now he is short on confidence that's all.

    Agree with your first sentence but we are in a league of 10 average teams with a few years without Sevco & Edinburgh clubs out of the league so we may have done a lot better with a decent manager.

    Do you remember when you were young and you thought that your parents were never wrong about anything? Do you remember the day when you first realised that they actually blether absolute shite on a regular basis?

    To be honest I think having the security of a good manager is of a lot more value to Saints than getting a bit of compensation.
