    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    A decent effort from us defensively. Although having said that, Celtic really should have scored more than the one goal. Clark had a very good game. I can understand why Tommy went with the defensive tactics, but came away disappointed we didn't have more of a 'go' at them and see what happens. Ok we might lose 0-4, 1-5 whatever, but we are still out regardless. I didn't see us scoring last night, Watt was isolated in the first half, Wright looked our best attacking option in the second...and came off. No doubt we will go with the same tactics in the league in a couple of weeks time and I have no problem with that given goal difference might come into play. Just feel last night we could have gone into it with a little more belief in our own attacking potential.

    Well that was an interesting night. Assuming Swanson does sign and ignoring the question of how do we play all these attacking players at one time, we certainly now have a squad full of options and a decent player in every position in the forward places. Still think we are a little light in midfield if Davidson is out for longer than thought and haven't really seen much of Callachan. I assume he got most of his Hearts games in the Cathro experiment. As has been mentioned credit to Brown, one of the things that I felt has kept crowds away from McD has been the lack of exciting football. This window should change that. He certainly can't be said to not be backing the manager this time around as you would imagine the likes of Kennedy, Watt, Wright, Scougall and Swanson will be on decent wages. On Scougall, we have never really seen him in his best position behind the attacker and with Swanson now in the door (almost) and McMillan and Alston having played there this season, will we get to see him have a run....I have my doubts. Can only imagine Tommy doesn't see what he wants to in training. Still the player can't go anywhere now (are loans now out as well?) and he'll just have to get his head down. One all the attacking options against Celtic in the cup and see where that takes us!
  3. Happy with the point and the performance. Mind you, Hibs should have scored at least twice in the first half. Wright impressive, particularly in the first half and Craig was decent in the midfield.
  4. Decent first 20 mins.....after that less said the better. Wright was decent and the two young central defenders eased through the game...not that they had much to deal with.
  5. From the unofficial twitter: Clark; Foster, Gordon, Kerr, Tanser; Davidson, Wotherspoon; Wright, Scougall, Craig; McMillan. Watt on the bench.

    I can understand sending Njo-Lea back with Watt signing. With the LB, perhaps Wright is thinking that when Easton is fit there is no point in having three players fighting for that position. With the goalie, it might come down to finances and prefering to spend that wage elsewhere rather than a guy who you would expect would be on the bench most times. There is a lot placed on Watt....hopefully he has now knuckled down....or he's another Riordan.

    Cheers. Be interesting to see where he ends up.

    Where are we with Driver? Is he training with us or did that not happen?

    If Watt's signing is signing, strange why we gave the trialist any game time today. Can't see both coming on board. On Watt, he must know he's in the last chance saloon. Always seemed a player to me who went in the huff when he wasn't in the team and has never stayed at a club to fight for his place. Might be being harsh on him tho.

    Chris Millar Testimonial

    Quite entertaining for a friendly. Very impressed with the Aberdeen Wright...our own one was quite quiet but showed a few good touches. Gordon had a good second half winning almost all the headers he went for. Quite liked the wee cameo of the trialist, although I am not sure if he's a great deal better than what we have. What he does look like having is the pace to run in behind, which McMillan won't do. Much like Habran last season, not sure there is enough for the club to take a chance, although I would have thought he'd be a much cheaper option in wages etc than Habran.

    New Assistant Manager required

    I can see why Callum has taken up this role, although it is quite a risk given how quickly managers and their staff get punted nowadays. I suppose even in a worst case with a pay off if he is sacked will leave him better off financially than staying with us. Still here, he is a relatively secure position, which certainly won't be the case down South. On Clelland, going to be interesting. Have read on here a few times that he is well thought off. Although having seen him on the track side of U20 games he never came across that well...but I suppose that is only a small part of the job. Could never work out whether the comments in the past from the likes of Frazer Wright about Clelland were tongue in cheek, or whether there was more to it. Still, TW will have seen Clelland at close quarters in the last number of years and must be happy with him.

    I reckon a lot comes down to whether Fulham get promoted. They win the play off then realistically they will be concentrating on a higher quality player than Williams and he may get cut. Lose the play off and they might think he can make a contribution in the Championship.

    Happy to hear Anderson & Davidson are staying. A two year deal takes Murray to pretty much the best years of his career with us. Good news on Tanser as well. Deserves a new contract given the improvement he has made. Not convinced by his defending yet, but he's quite young. Be interesting to see how he fairs when a fully fit Easton comes back.

    St.Johnstone v Ross County - Saturday 12th May

    Glad to draw a line under this season. That game kinda summed up the performances at home this season, not that much entertainment on show. County were pretty comfortable until they heard the score elsewhere. We were, however, playing a pretty inexperienced line up and that goes some way to explaining how poor we were in the first half, particularly when defending.
