  1. Hearts v Saints Sat February 10th Scottish Cup 5th Round

    Tony Tompos is going to Aberdeen? Saints' inability to retain physios is frightening.
  2. MOTHERWELL AWAY TUESDAY

    Correct on both counts. Some folk absolutely itching to get rid of our most successful ever manager.
  3. Heart's v St Johnstone 03/02/18

    I understand that for 80% of our fans, they only get to see the team at home and performances and results haven't been good enough but in terms of picking a battle, going off on one following yesterday will seem odd timing to the fans who were at Tynecastle. Saints have been very good on the road for the past year (10 wins and 2 draws from 19 games I believe) and there is little in our away performances that needs altered. And we know exactly what needs to change at home, we need to stop conceding early first goals that put us under pressure. I agree it's past the stage of making excuses for it and needs rectified but yesterday's performance didn't merit the reaction its received in some quarters.
  4. Heart's v St Johnstone 03/02/18

    What a relief to read some of the most recent posts. @Saline Saint @Ali91 Pleased with and enjoyed Saints' performance today and I think the fact that the vast majority of the support stayed to applaud the team from the park is telling, as is the man of the match award being given to the home goalkeeper. Wouldn't pick a failure for Saints and hopefully we can reach a similar level on Tuesday night and get our rewards.
  5. Scottish cup 4th round draw Monday 4.45

    If Shaughnessy doesn't make the game, it's a huge statement if the manager goes with Gordon and Kerr ahead of Anderson. Is it inconceivable that one of the U20 wingers plays ahead of Craig if Scougall and Wotherspoon are out? The Development League game at 2:00pm will answer that question. Kane could play wide (certainly not advocating it) but it would mean either MacLean playing two games in three days or Hurst coming in from the cold. I suppose he could play out wide too.
  6. Scottish cup 4th round draw Monday 4.45

    Paton and Davidson have served their bans, which were for the league only in any case. Foster is still suspended. Other that Watson for Comrie, I thought yesterday's team was pretty predictable and wonder if, even having threatening so many changes, much will come as a surprise? Depending on Clark's injury, I'm expecting this team: Clark/Mannus Watson - Shaughnessy - Kerr - Comrie Alston - Paton - Davidson - Wotherspoon Johnstone - Kane Subbies: Mannus/Hurst, Anderson, Gordon, Craig, McClean, Scougall/Millar, MacLean.
  7. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Was that not just another unfounded rumour? I think the striker that Wright really wanted was Simon Murray.
  8. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Tomorrow night is huge in terms of the window. Progression is probably worth about £50,000, which is an extra player you'd expect, or some smashing infrastructure.
  9. Player Contracts + Transfers

    We are still in contention for the top six for those that want to be positive but there is no hiding what the table looks like just below us. What message does doing nothing over the next few days send out, especially when the manager has made it clear that he wants bodies in? I'm still optimistic we'll get something done. Thursday morning will reveal whether that is a foolish stance.
  10. Scottish cup 4th round draw Monday 4.45

    At least six changes I think were the words of the manager on Saints TV after the game. Millar won't manage two games in three days so he was always going to be one but could well be telling who else is left out. Wright's comments are as harsh as any I can remember since Derek McInnes after the Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Motherwell. He was true to his word about big changes, will TW be? The three main candidates for the chop have to be Anderson, Craig and MacLean. I still remember the horrible situation of Nick Dasovic getting booed towards the end of his time with Saints and it'd be a travesty if three heroes like the aforementioned were in a similar boat. It's already sad to see opposition fans being glad to see Anderson's name in the starting eleven. I suppose the next question is who comes in? The young centre backs? Alston? McClean? Certainly going to be an interesting evening, even before considering the venue and opposition.
  11. St Johnstone v Partick Thistle, 27 January 2018

    There were arguably many strange decisions yesterday but any more so than selecting Keith Watson? He was loaned out so he didn't block the progress of Comrie and since then the manager has said at least twice that he didn't have a future at the club. I know the player himself spoke about a clean slate last week but I didn't even expect him to be in the squad yesterday let alone starting. I thought it was clear early on that he wasn't in top shape so surely the manager sees that in training. He hadn't even been playing at full-back for Hartlepool on the rare occasions he was fit. The situation I believe is that he can now only play for Saints or Hartlepool this season and his former loan club have no money to take him back. Surely he was the sort of player the club should have been getting off an ever-increasing wage bill? As it is we are stuck with him until the summer now. Was anyone happy or expecting to see him in the team yesterday?
  12. SFA Youth Cup

    What is the story with Henvey? @sevcozombie2 Was he released by Saints or did he leave through his own choice. I remember seeing the name when a few players had Scotland youth trials a few years ago. I think the older players serve their purpose in the Development League (it'll be the Reserve League next season) but they have to approach the matches with the same commitment as the younger guys.
  13. Colt sides

    Glad that someone has raised this issue and it's worth reading the links above. I'd hope all Saints fans are against these horrendous proposals and if so, it's important that even through polls like this on a messageboard that the club are left in no doubt about the opposition from the supporters.
  14. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Even by @RandomGuy standards, this tangent is something else. We have a discussion about a manager probably not doing something on a holiday he probably isn't even on. TW will be working as hard as ever to bring players to Saints, if that's what he believes we need.
  15. Saints v Dundee

    Apart from the winner at Easter Road...
