  1. Player Contracts + Transfers

    All aboard the new signing hype train, lads.
  2. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Agree with this entirely. If he still has pace (which he should do at only 28) he'll be a very decent option for us, especially as he's natural on the left. Dayton has a great delivery on his left foot as well. I honestly still don't know what Coulson was supposed to bring to us. He didn't have any real identifiable strength.

    I agree the squad is generally fine. We do need to find a replacement for Swanson though as we don't really have anyone who can pull a rabbit out of the hat on a consistent basis.
  4. Player Contracts + Transfers

    2 weeks until our first competitive match and 4 days until the European Registration deadline. I think it's understandable that people are a little bit concerned, particularly when we have 3 fit senior defenders.
  5. Player Contracts + Transfers

    He's gone. Jason Kerr has been given his squad number too, so doubt he'll be back.
  6. Player Contracts + Transfers

    This does have the summer of 2014 feel about it at the moment. Tommy's awfully quiet too.
  7. Season tickets on sale on friday

    They were a bit funny about renewing mine over the phone this year as well, which was never a problem in the past. They did it in the end, but only because I pushed back.

    Agree with the above. He's said before that his link isn't someone in the club, but a journalist. If you look at what he posts and then where the stories then generally appear, it's quite easy to work out who it may be. He's stopped posting what he's told now as well because of the crap he gets for it, which is a shame as he's about the only decent source for info out there just now - and I include the official club sources in that as well.

    Which newspaper Scotty? If it's the Sun, then it's most likely true.

    Liam Craig will have you for that.
  11. Player Contracts + Transfers

    May, Thomson, Kane and Clark is a pretty decent return considering all of those players are pre-Stevenson. An £800k international cap, a future Scotland squad goalie and two guys who are well embedded in a top six premiership squad. Guys like Hurst, Kerr, Comrie, Gilchrist and Gordon are clearly highly thought of as well. Our U17s look the part and a load of them (I think 9) have been kept on. It's not an overnight process, but there's certainly much more promise now than there was even 3 or 4 years ago.
  12. I Wouldn't Give Tommy Money Either

    I think Tommy's ability to keep the team together, despite there being more money on offer elsewhere, is his greatest trick. He always seems to pull a few gems out of the hat in the market - usually ones that get a mixed reception amongst our support - but the continuity in the spine of the team makes it easier for these guys to adapt and eventually flourish. Even the players who have now left - Mackay, Wright, O'Halloran, May - they have either been replaced or we've adapted. The partnership of Anderson and Wright looked like peak level, but you could make the argument that Anderson and Shaughnessy is just as good, if not better. Mackay was a 7/10 player every week and we've managed to bring in Foster, who provides us that as well. No MOH? No problem - we signed Danny Swanson and adjusted the way we play. The year we lost May, we tightened things up at the back to make up for lack of goals... and we finished with more points and in a higher league position the next season. It's ****ing voodoo.

    Scott Burns tends to get his Saints new 100% correct. He seems well thought of by Bolton fans and has done well for their u23s side. Bring him home.
  14. MOTM Saints 1 - Partick Thistle 0 - 13/05/17

    No failures today at all, but thought Swanson was outstanding. He was clearly desperate to help get us into Europe before he departs. His work rate was excellent as well, particularly in the second half.

    Brian Graham was alright. Not exactly a 'jewel in the crown' signing, but he did fine the last time. Started well and had a purple patch towards the end of that season, but was largely anonymous in the middle. Got to be honest - I hoped for better than the likes of Brian Graham after Tommy's comments in the press a month or so ago. Davidson is a big loss for us. Coulson and Watson must be best pals, the amount of time they've spent together in the treatment room.
