    This is the guy who focuses on the negative when we qualify for Europe or points out that a cup win doesn't generate as much revenue as you might think.

    This is exactly how I feel (minus the "sell the club" part)... the guy actually has the platform of being able to talk to national radio, TV and newspapers, but he only uses the opportunity to grumble and moan about money, as per always. He wants fans to come back, but his attitude probably only serves to put more fans off. Why can't he praise his manager, praise the team, and appeal for all Saints fans to get themselves along to matches and get behind the team at a point where we're playing some really positive football? I think Steve Brown's done a great job for Saints in many ways, but his use of the media is bloody horrifying.

    I find the timing of this baffling, to be honest. We're on a great run, we're still in the Cup, we're firmly in the hunt for top 6, and for the first time in a while the squad actually has several sellable assets. Yet Steve Brown's talking as if the season has already been a failure. By all means he can think this way behind closed doors, but does he really need to talk to the media about it? As far as I can see, all he's doing is putting a downer on everything. If he really wants fans to start coming back in numbers, maybe the down-in-the-dumps image he puts across of himself and the club and the manager is something he could start giving a bit more thought.
    I think this is a really positive, exciting time for Saints - we have an opportunity to finish the season on a high, and really look forward to what we might be able to do next season if we start well. Couldn't Steve Brown mention some of that stuff instead?

    The more Steve Brown speaks, the more I think he's cagey.

    Only thing in his comments that irked me is he claims the budget was based on being top 6 and a cup run.  As far as I can see, and based on current form, both are unlikely but not impossible.
    We are, if you put a positive spin on it, 3 or 4 terrific results away from a hugely successful season. Given the appalling start we had, surely this is the ONE opportunity we have to look up and try to make it happen, rather than just give up hope.
    He's a fud the way he words things.  I kind of read it as a red rag to a bull for the next few weeks, sort of 'prove me wrong Tommy', but to the punter in the stands it reads like abject defeat.

    I think that's incredibly harsh on those three players. Watt looked like a good player to me but faded, unfortunately. I'd have been happy to see him stay as I think he may well have come good for us again. May and MOH have both shown in the past that they're good players. I don't remember seeing many complaints on here when we brought MOH back, and I really don't see who else we would have got instead of May that would have been any better. For me the issue isn't signing those players - it's finding a system that gets the best out of them.

    Turkey was a real highlight for the atmosphere before the game and a few days in Istanbul before ( and a full bus of Saints fans going from there to the game!).
    I also remember in Lucerne some  the Saints players ( Tam Scobbie, a bottle in each hand!) sneaking out of the team hotel and joining the fans  celebrating in the bar at the risk of getting fines! Thought  I shouldn’t  post a picture at the time  to save anyone getting into bother but as most of them have left us ...

    There's no question that lower league football is a totally different game, especially on plastic pitches.  The Forfar highlights showed players getting zero space  to play football, players throwing themselves into blocks and tackles.  It's a game of small margins, and the Celtic game will be the polar opposite of Forfar or Montrose.
    It doesn't change the fact that we need  a striker and some confidence, but I don't think it's all doom and gloom yet.
