  1. Albion Rovers v Saints Scottish Cup 20/1/18

    Bit of a detour that is Eddie!! Have to wait and see the venue and the ticket allocation
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    The Johnstone Hendry debate mentioned above, how are we comparing these two, as seen Hendry for ten minutes and Johnstone not much more at first team level anyway (granted he doesn't look great, but coming on as sub to a struggling team isn't easy), I don;t go to under 20 games so can't compare myself apart from the subs appearance for the first team, but one seems to be the next big thing and the other one is crap, just wondering how all these posters come to this conclusion, as going by what I have seen can't give it a balanced view, also with McLean and Cummins they are hardly setiing it alight either, do they deserve a look in?.
  3. Tommy for Rangers

    aye Rab It's Andy not Alexander!! But always a Saint and wouldn't swap it for anything, you lot or the Diddies. For all your above glories you are certainly in a bad way through mismanagement and overspending, tick tock.......
  4. Tommy for Rangers

    A club one season away from oblivion, a club whose chairman is so disliked that he has had to move to St Andrews, another case of bigger budget but living outside their means, it's all going to end in tears for this massive football juggernaught that is so underachieving or is it really in the place where it should be in line with it's history bar a good spell in the last few years.
  5. Saints v Celtic 4/11/17

    The whole team is a huge issue, regardless how you try to sugar coat it, the defence isn't great compared to last few years, Easton hasn't been great but seeing the boy Tanser today, he looks out of his depth and still struggle to see the Shaughnessy hype. What is the point wasting continuous wages on Davidson and Millar, they are continually out and we never get the same eleven due to this constant issue, the ageing squad is catching us up, bit like the Martin O'Neill squad at Celtic that did well but reached their sell by dates and the Blessed Martin baled from the ship, will Tommy bale soon before his stock takes a tumble? No creativity and a strike force that is non existent, we have got away with it for the last few season with the likes of Swanson chipping in with goals, but now we can all see that the manager or chairman cocked up in their attempts to get someone in up top in the summer and left us with Johnstone, but the guy has hardly been on the pitch, so I seem to think the ones responsible are the guys playing, he is an easy scapegoat. Also for Celtic playing on Wednesday, I thought it was our players puffing out of their arses for the last twenty. Big january transfer window as we are well in truely in the shit. Highlight was the excellent refereeing performance of Scott Brown, his antics today were poor and the way he continually tried to get Paton sent off was poor
  6. Partick v Saints 28/10/17

    Not really, he had a good wee spell, maybe played out of position, but wouldn't really go overboard and think he was a model of consistency, as with any player I want to see them progress at saints, but what I seen on Tuesday he has gone back the way
  7. Partick v Saints 28/10/17

    watching Alston on Tuesday he is not the answer, looks slow and overweight, I know he has been out for a while, but not really fulfilling the promise we hoped and unless improves in next few weeks would punt him in January. we are certainly at a crossroads too many ageing pros who have been excellent servants over the last few, but no room for sentiment, we need a really good january window, and all talk about strikers is top priority but so is centre mid, Millar appears/ disappears, Murray one tackle from an injury and Paton just not very good, we are crying out for a playmaker
  8. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    Been watching saints over 40 years seen good bad and ugly, the last few years have been absolutely fantastic, but shouldn't cloud the judgement that we are sensational in every game and that's as good as it gets, what's wrong to have dreams and expectations that we want our team to aspire too, is that not part of being a supporter. Surely debate with someone if you think they are being negative and counter their argument, not roll out the standard what would it be like if you were there in the bad days, but Saints have increased our aspirations over the last few years and a few years ago we didn't have the internet, so who knows.
  9. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    So every time we give us away a cheap goal as in the last few weeks, we need two to win, a strong defence is a key to a winning team. Up front is a problem and in previous seasons didn't have a Stevie May type forward, we had a strong defence and a midfield chipping in with goals, unless I'm mistaken don't see this happening this season apart from Mikey and when he is out or away in January we are going to struggle (unless we get a few decent players in January window)
  10. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    Open your eyes the defence is costing us every game, it needs sorted, just because everyone else does it, so what, didn't see the diddies ship 3 against Celtic or Hibs v Aberden today. Yep don't think Thomson is up to it myself, but quoting about his wages etc is poor even by your ill informed standards when you don't have a scooby what he is on or any the saints players are on.
  11. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    And how do you sort the defence and how do you know he's cheap, I'm beginning to think you are Pedro's mole with all the inside knowledge you claim to have about tactics, players contracts and so on...
  12. St Johnstone v Rangers 13/10/17

    Way I saw it and McLean starting to look a yard short, The three above are not what they used to be and we seem to concede goals from crosses every game, time for the young guns at centre half next week, never have bought into the Shaughnessy hype, for his height doesn't attack the ball and his distribution is poor as he panics on the ball. Ando is starting to cause too many errors and his second booking for an experienced guy was poor. Easton not the same player Thought young Comrie did well and look comfy on the ball going forward, Scougall got more about the pitch and created more and Midge probably still getting back to full match fitness offers more than Paton beside Murray, who put in a good shift. Really need to get a few points on from the next three games. What a shower of shite follow that tribute act.

    Totally agree too many jersey fillers that would have been bettered served with boys clubs. Although from my own experience the majority of the coaching was better than boys clubs, but again if you are getting 10 minutes here and there, not much point.
  14. Development Squad News 2017/18

    Problem at these pro youth, performance places is a lot of the parents think their kids are the next Messi and have totally unrealistic expectations and the grim reality is most start dropping out at age 16/17, as not good enough/bored of it/peer pressure you name it.
  15. Development Squad News 2017/18

    Hearts seem to have set up there own academy using Balerno High School, not sure it fits in with SFA system, but they seem to be moving away the SFA model
