  1. Wright said recently on Saints TV recently that he targetted Gallagher and after that fell through, 'circumstances changed' in respect of the budget available for a centre back. Not sure what those circumstances might be - possibly the new deals for Kerr and Clark? - but I think you have to take the manager at his word. You have to remember that at one point we were trying to sign Gallagher and Shaughnessy still had an offer on the table to stay. Those players signings/staying on probably mean no VIhmann or Duffy and probably mean no Holt too when you look at how many other options we have in the centre of the park. It's hard to know what's happened and why the summer window turned into such a farce. At this point it doesn't really matter as long as things are fixed in January.
  2. Looks like O'Neill is staying in charge of NI for their final two qualifiers against Germany and the Netherlands and, if NI end up in a play off for Euro 2020 in March, will be in charge for that game too. Nae luck Tommy haters - it seems he'll be sticking around for a while yet.
  3. Why would you be excited about the most successful manager in our history leaving the club?
  4. I don't understand why we're running with a squad of over 11 to be honest.
  5. Isn't that kind of the point though - he didn't score the chances. He has a highlight reel of terrible misses and he only seems to add to it every time he plays. He's nowhere near good enough with his finishing to justify a regular spot in our team. If he's to be either the main striker or the second choice behind May, we really should be looking to see what else is out there next summer as right now there's not much in Kane's game that makes him indispensable.
  6. I don't entirely disagree with this post but I'm not sure giving the job to Paul Sheerin helps in terms moving the club forward either, as it would again be a returning ex player albeit in a different role. If Wright is to leave (and I'm not there yet) I'd rather we went for someone without a previous connection with the club again. Coyle, McInnes (I know he played for us for a while before becoming the manager but he was still relatively new to the club), Lomas and Wright have all been great successes when we've cast the net a little bit further than who we've had at the club before. Doesn't always work obviously but I think the ceiling is higher for someone like that than a Sheerin or a Jim Weir type.
  7. Totally agree. I think when we do get players as good as Kennedy, Wright (and O'Halloran and May) we can only really enjoy them while they're here. If they extend their stays then brilliant but I don't think we can realistically just expect them to do that. They know their value and it's a short career at the end of the day - if they get offered a massive pay rise to go elsewhere, then it's only natural they'll take it into serious consideration even without agents pushing them out the door.
  8. In what way was I being personal? He wasn’t good enough to play for a top flight club and has done well at a lower level. That’s just fact.
  9. Fair play to Greg Hurst. He wasn’t good enough to play for us but he’s making the most of the ability he has.

    Season Tickets

    I don't think having the choice is a bad thing to be honest. I'd imagine some of the season ticket sales we've picked up this summer will be down to the online service as folk see it as a hassle to phone/mail/drop in to get one.
  11. We paid a fee for Danny Grainger after Davidson and Mackay. Over 10 years ago now though.
  12. Wright has been quoted saying 15 goals so I’d guess that’s what he’s looking for. Im not saying Kane should be our main striker though, just that he has his uses and isn’t as bad as people make out.
  13. Kane has his uses. I doubt he'll ever score 15-20 goals in a season but he works hard and would be a decent foil for a goalscorer. Certainly don't think he's anywhere near as bad as he's made out to be at times.
