  1. MOTM: Game 6 Saints 1 v Hibs 1

    Some excellent performances to choose from. I think the current top 3 (Foster, Wright and Craig) were the best of them and I went for Craig personally, but would be happy for any of the 3 to receive the accolade at the end of the day. There were no failures though - I'd happily pay to watch that style of play every week.

    Showing your age there, Radford. Even more so than the '72' in your username.
  3. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Additional prize money, maybe one or two younger players heading out on loan too. I'd imagine that would all amount to an extra player for us.

    RandomGuy is correct for me. First game of the season or not, we were playing a team 2 divisions below us and their keeper had one save to make in 90 minutes. Rustiness or not, that's concerning. We passed the ball about with tempo for 15/20 minutes at the start of the game, then spent the rest of the match either being sluggish or not really in control - a team 2 levels below us were able to expose our obvious weakness in midfield and we had no outball on the left hand side. We are crying out for someone with composure in midfield and a left winger and those problems wont disappear until players are brought in. In the mean time, I'd rather see Wotherspoon play left wing and McClean/McCann in the middle of the park as what we lined up with on Saturday just didn't look like working.
  6. New Assistant Manager required

    So Cleland is the new assistant and we've brought Alan Maybury back in as youth coach.

    https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/st-johnstone/676984/st-johnstone-boss-confirms-callum-davidson-exit-to-stoke-city/ Also mentions the potential for a couple of foreign trialists too along with Dean Lyness training with us. There seems to be legs in that one as he joined up with us towards the end of last season.
  8. Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    It's glorious. Take my money, St Johnstone.

    Wednesday I think. I’m sure it was in the squad numbers update on the website.
  10. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Tommy confirmed that Dundee United approached Saints first about Mathers; “He agreed a new contract 10 days ago after interest from Dundee United, who acted with total professionalism.”
  11. Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    It seems to be the away kit that's being revealed on Monday which is a bit unusual. Can't wait to see it though - hoping it's a complete monstrosity.

    Yet they're 13 points clear in the polls after 11 years of Government, still hold more than half the seats at Westminster and won the most recent council election. I haven't denied that yes lied but I'm not part of the yes campaign and didn't agree with their sunshine and butterflies promises they dished out in the white paper. Scots are naturally pragmatic and want to be faced up with honestly. They have that in the growth commission and there's no surprise that people are by and large far less turned off by it than they were the white paper. I'll always favour independence for the reasons I outlined before. Of course the parliament walk out was a stunt, but so is all the 'No 2 Indy ref 2' guff from the Tories. The SNP picked up about 9000 new members after their stunt, Murray Foote declared for yes and even Chris Deerin seems to be softening his view on independence, the Tories picked up 12 more seats at Westminster. It's politics - no where and no one is immune to that kind of behaviour.
  13. Indy Ref 2

    The no campaign were equally cavalier with the facts and have equally been shown up as brazen liars too. 'If you vote no, you will be in a partner in a union of equals'. David Mundell himself last week - the secretary of Scotland - said that we're in fact NOT a partner, but a part of the UK. There's countless examples on both ways so I don't think it's fair to paint one side or the other in that manner. The Brexit referendum was exactly the same - all soundbites and bluster, facts lost in amongst the muck each side tried to chuck on each other. I know that things would have been tough in an independent Scotland and voted in the face of that. It's not because I'm a flag waving identity politics nationalist who hates the English as you seem to be implying yes voters are, but I wanted my vote to actually mean something and for us to forge a way in the world that I'm comfortable with. We're in a situation right now where it doesn't matter how we vote - we just get the preferred Government of another country or get dragged out of the EU against our will or end up going to war despite the vast majority of your MPs voted against it. We don't even have the power to really control our own economic policy in any real effective manner and, beyond a wee soundbite here or there, have no say on our foreign or home affairs which seems wrong to me. I'm under no illusions that Scotland is a small country and I'm not interest in being part of an all conquering world power. I don't think there's anything wrong with being a small, independent country with very little influence globally. Plenty of other countries who don't have the natural resources we have thrive in exactly those conditions, and they do so without trying to police the rest of the world.

    I don't think the SNP are alone in perpetuating the 'neverendum'. The Tories certainly gain a lot from keeping the constitution at the front and centre of Scottish politics as it distracts from their dreadful record at Westminster and the unfolding Brexit shambles. The gains they've made in the last 3 elections in Scotland (I'm including the council election) are a clear kickback by unionists but I'm not convinced that's based on anything other than the risk of a second referendum. Equally, a lot of yes supporters seemed to either take their eye off the ball or became disillusioned by the SNP prior to the last general election and stayed away from the polling stations. Ruth Davidson has performed well but I can't help but think she's had a pretty Tory friendly environment to operate in. She's done well to disassociate herself with a lot of the worst of what comes from the central office which has clearly helped her case too. In terms of the SNP's record in Government, I'm not saying it's been fantastic but I don't think it's been too bad either. There's room for improvement absolutely everywhere but for a Government apparently obsessed with Independence and politicising culture and language (I don't see a problem with protecting what is our ancestral language but can see the other side of that too) I think they're functioning relatively well. The BBC reported on the 11th of June that we're seeing a record high in terms of foreign investment into Scotland as well. If I had to vote in a Scottish election tomorrow, my x would be going into the SNP's box again and it wouldn't just because I support Scottish Independence. I don't want Tories running our Parliament and labour are still a pretty nothing alternative just now and I'd be as well chucking my ballot in the bin than voting for the Lib Dems in Glasgow.
  15. Season Tickets 2018-2019

    4 times since last Wednesday. Once with the fixtures, a retweet for strathearn saints, answering a query about hospitality and the Lotto numbers about 45 minutes ago. Pretty much every club in the senior leagues are putting our social media game in the shade.
