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

    This is obviously accurate but who'd have guessed that folk moaning about those things would just find something else to moan about when the time came? Shocker.

    Horrendously disrespectful. 
    TW has been nothing short of a hugely successful manager for Saints.

    Yes, but I’m not sure a shortlist of one quite cuts it. Our problems now started last season as we didn’t identify replacements, then continued with the May debacle in the Summer. I’m not sure how much is based on the Chairman trying to get things on the cheap/last minute and then missing out to other clubs though.

    I don't think we will ever know the inner workings as the chairman says one thing and the manager says another. We have had gaps in the squad for long periods of time ever since Chris Miller was frozen out. 
    Defence, central midfield and striker have all needed attention over the last few seasons. The fact there was never a suitable person filling it can't all be down to the budget that Brown sets.

    Doesn't matter what Jeff thinks. It's his son Stefan that counts.

    Sometimes I get the impression that some people are absolutely desperate to see us get rid of our best ever manager.

    Thanks for posting that. I think it could have stayed in Saints Chat as it's very relevant to us currently. I think it possibly explains why there isn't the mass panic that you'd generally associate with a team without a win. 
    Our play certainly looks like it's merited a lot more.

    I'm doing really well just now. Officially classed as in "remission" but the cancer will rear its ugly head again one day. Hopefully we'll win another Scottish Cup before then!

    Seems the fans have decided Swanson should go but I don't think Tommy has.

    Very sad to see a small number of people on here continually trying to imply that all Tommy has done for us is win the Cup (especially when they're doing things like making up the formation we supposedly played to make him look worse). He has consistently succeeded with Saints and delivered strong league finishing positions - a better run of league positions than any other Saints manager has ever achieved. I'll also repeat what I say on here quite often, which is that every single time we've gone through a slump of bad results under Tommy, he has successfully managed to pull us out of it. When people start trying to downplay our greatest ever manager's achievements I really start to wonder about what their agendas are.
    And no I don't think he should be above all criticism - but surely there's some middle ground between criticising a manager and leaping straight to the knee-jerk reaction of calling for him to be replaced.

    Very fair point and that is a whole new argument, a discussion I was having on the way home yesterday. 
    Can anyone come up with a single name that would justify us sacking our most successful ever manager?
    Other than Barry Ferguson, obviously.

    I'm going to do something very dangerous and mention politics. 
    The argument from those negotiating Brexit is they need to have no deal on the table to get a (good) deal. Equally, I don't think it helps us to talk about TW having a free hit effectively.  He should feel under a bit of pressure. He has taken the conscious choice to shake up this squad so will have to live or die by that decision. 
    Where we are now isn't a result of bad fortune that the manager has earned the right to remedy, he has put us in this position. We've had bad runs in the past and the club (absolutely correctly) haven't wavered in their support of him. This feels different though. 
    What isn't acceptable is the language used at times. Whatever happens with TW, the respect for him should never diminish. And as for those that actively seem to be willing him to fail? What a miserable existence.

    Imagine expecting us not to record our heaviest ever defeat to Celtic. What a bunch of dreamers... 
    Yesterday was unacceptable. Nobody should be defending it, excusing it or brushing it off. And it wasn't even a one-off, they did the same to us less than a year ago. Obviously a lot of lessons picked up from that mauling...
