  1. Dave Mckay Testimonial match against DUNDEE Friday 6th Oct.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the night, particularly the second half. It was great to see the likes of Jody Morris (who also didn't get a proper goodbye from us) back in a Saints shirt and still looking a top class player. Crowd obviously wasn't what was hoped for, but I don't think the organisers did anything wrong really. If the game could've been moved to the Saturday afternoon that maybe would've made a difference, but I'd imagine the Friday night suited all parties best. I think the night captured the essence of a testimonial perfectly. Nobody took the game too seriously, we got to see some genuine legends and class acts come back and play for us again and the opposition meant something to the player who's career the testimonial was celebrating. Big kudos to Rab Douglas and Neil McCann who played the role of villains brilliantly and with good humour.
  2. Deadline Predictions

    Probably Danny Swanson the first time round. We got Mehdi Abeid on deadline day too, although both of those were January rather than the summer. We got Maclean the day after the summer window closed, but I'm struggling to think of too many others.
  3. Deadline Predictions

    In - 1 new player (based on nothing but blind faith)... god knows who - token premiership youngster on loan probably. A striker would be my guess. Out - Millar on loan or permanently to Morton and Thomson on loan to Dumbarton

    Millar has been told he's free to find another club, more or less confirming what HSF said was true. I hope he gets himself a decent club as he's certainly not had great treatment from Saints recently.

    “We are just waiting on international clearing and stuff, which I can’t see a problem with, and once that goes through he will go straight into the squad.”He has come in on a season loan so I am pleased to get him, he ticks a lot of boxes for us.”He has got quality and in the market we are in, it is a great option.”He will improve the team. He is only 22, he has a presence and when you look at his record in the Championship with Morton, he scored 14 or 15 goals in 30 games or so, and we want to try to get him back to that.” Tommy's comments about Denny Johnstone which are circulating around a few different places now. He trained with us this morning as well. He'll be announced this afternoon I imagine.
  6. Chris "midgey" Millar - An Appreciation

    In fairness, Transfermarkt.co.uk is far more likely to know about Chris Millar's injury history than Chris Millar is.

    Is Watson even still with us? Coulson's release was never confirmed by the club and I haven't seen Watson anywhere recently.
  8. Tam Scobbie

    I'm sure he'll still enjoy watching his old team play in the cup final from a pub in Magaluf.
  9. Tam Scobbie

    Scobbie doesn't often get niggles, but has been susceptible to quite a few bad injuries over his years with us, and obviously now at United too. Feel sorry for him - the United fans seem to quite like him and he's clearly a decent guy. Hope he gets himself fit soon.

    Chances of us making a signing today are non-existent, IMO.
  11. Player Contracts + Transfers

    I'm not really sure what the club can say. Tommy has explained why Kane has left on loan, he's said constantly that he's after a striker. in some interviews, he's said he's after 2 players and that we've been speaking to potential signings. We've got 3 weeks until the window closes. Some potential targets have gone elsewhere, but lets be honest, none of them were THAT great anyway (Sammon, Storey and Graham managed about 10 goals between them last season) and others were never likely to come off anyway (May). I would rather not be going into the first home league game with question marks over our striking options, but we've dealt with much worse odds before and been ok. If it gets to the last week of the window and there's radio silence about new players, I think that's the time to worry.
  12. Player Contracts + Transfers

    The board have delivered Tommy's top targets for wide left and 'attacking midfield'. We are clearly still in the market for a striker and there's no evidence anywhere - other than a few articles and rumours of a meeting between Sammon and Wright - that suggest we were even in for these guys (I would suggest we at least talked to them, but who's to say it was followed up with any kind of offer?) The one mistake I see so far in all of this is letting Kane go before we had the replacement secured and in place. Reading Naysmith's interview, they'd chased Kane for most of the summer and I'm sure they would've waited at least another week for us to get a replacement. There's still 3 full weeks left in the window. I don't see too many potential options out there, but I am sure the manager and board are in discussions with players they feel will improve the squad. I'd be lying if I said I'm not starting to feel a bit anxious, especially as only have 2 senior strikers currently on our books, but we've got to just trust the club to get someone in place.

    Spoony. Most of the rest were shite.
  14. Player Contracts + Transfers

    If Watson does end up leaving, I think injuries and circumstance have been the end of him. He's been out most of last season and we weren't really affected by it. Clive Smith's performances probably helped convince Tommy that Comrie would be adequate back up for Foster and he'll be much cheaper. I feel a bit sorry for Watson. He's a good player but injuries have effectively ruined his career to date. Storey doesn't really fit in that Aberdeen team, in much the same way MOH doesn't fit into Rangers. Most teams don't give Aberdeen much space in behind and Storey's primary strength (for me anyway) is his pace and directness. He'll fit in much better with us, particularly away from home. We're a decent counter attacking team and having two players as quick as MOH and Storey would be great for us, especially when added to the cleverness and guile of Wotherspoon, Scougall and Maclean.
  15. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Agree. Been very impressed whenever I've seen Comrie this pre-season in particular. One more push to get a quality striker in. It's clear we're going for a high profile player - here's hoping its the quality of player you've mentioned above rather than a huddy like Sammon.
