    What contracts would you renew?

    Only one I've voted for is Shaughnessy. I think he's the only one who at this moment in time has earned an extension. I like Watt and think he's a good player but you can't ignore his lack of league goals. Alston seems to be out of favour, Easton needs to prove his fitness and McCann and McClean will likely sort themselves out one way or another. Comrie is the one one from the players on permanent contracts that I'd say is definitely on the road out. He hasn't appeared since the opening day of the season. I probably wouldn't keep any of the loanees to be honest. Bell might be alright as back up but Keown hasn't played and our record with Goss in the team is horrendous. I'm sure he'd be perfectly capable at this level but the team doesn't really suit him.

    MOTM Game 34: Rangers 0 v 0 Saints

    No but I'm quite sure Messi has more than 0 goals this season. I don't mind Kane but a bit ridiculous attacking RandomGuy for having a perfectly legitimate and quite widespread view that Kane's finishing could be better.

    Nice bit of spin from Keown as much as anything else I think. Speaking to a Thistle fan I know, he suggests he was excellent during his loan spell when beside Liam Lindsay, which lead to Thistle paying a fee to bring him in permanently 18 months ago. After Lindsay left though, he looked lost and was a liability as Thistle ended up going down. He was initially allowed to leave last summer but I'm sure he renegotiated his contract and ended up staying on. He once again looked out of his depth - this time in the championship - and fell out of the team again. If we can get the player who initially rocked up into Scottish football then we're laughing and Kerr might just be the player to help him re-establish that form again. The one over the last 18 months just isn't good enough though. Fingers crossed we get the former and not the latter. It's all academic if Kerr and Shaughnessy stay fit. Unless we have some meaningless games towards the end of the season and Joe decides his future lies elsewhere, I doubt we'll see much of Keown this season.

    MOTM Game 33 Celtic 5 v 0 Saints

    Not often this happens but I don't think anyone really deserves a vote. The whole team under performed and I don't think anyone stood out as being significantly better than the rest.

    MOTM Game 32 Hamilton 2 v 1 Saints

    Kane for me too. Good play from him created the goal and he did more in his brief spell on the park than Watt managed over the rest of the game. The other two who have votes are probably the only other two outfield players who came out of the game with much credit. I thought Foster, the aforementioned Watt and Callachan were particularly poor.

    MOTM Game 31: Saints 0 v 2 Celtic

    Zander was really outstanding. I thought quite a few players came out with credit but he was the best player on the pitch for me.

    It sounds like he's just fallen down the pecking order after us signing O'Halloran. Think a Dundee, St Mirren or Hamilton could really use him. He's clearly a good enough player to establish himself at this level, he's just been hellishly unlucky.

    David McMillan's been made available for transfer. I feel bad for him because he's clearly not a bad player, just found himself behind Watt/Kennedy/Kane/MOH. Our options upfront have vastly improved since he came in last year.

    Jason Kerr. Again.
  13. For the avoidance of doubt, this appears a genuine request too.

    I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt just now but agree it could be better. The footage of the St Mirren and Dundee games are much better than the Hamilton game - I wanted to watch it back to see the foul on Kennedy that lead to the first goal but I couldn't really make out what was going on because the camera is so far away. Wright's responses to Gary's questions seem much less chippy than he was with Megan and he seems to have opened himself up quite a bit to doing different interviews which has been good. I think the interviews have generally been decent too.

    MOTM Game 27 Scottish Cup Saints 2 v 0 Hamilton

    I went for Kerr just ahead of Craig. Not a classic match but there wasn't any failures in the team.

    Michael O'Halloran in Stevie May's shirt? Yes please.
  17. That is indeed something we can do. Maybe tells a story that the two people who have reacted most positively to this request are mods.
  18. Lindberg - check your PMs mate! That should hopefully send you in the right direction

    Your Auld School Teachers - Like and Dislike

    That's awful news Following on from Mr Thorburn the old chemistry teacher who died last summer. He was an amazing teacher too.

    Agreed. As an example, if we do sign MOH it'd probably have to be on at least an 18 month contract to make it worth our while. It'll take him a while to get up to speed and by the time he is, we could end up losing him. I suppose it's a bit different if you're in Dundee's position and you just need to get bodies in the door and hope something sparks.

    He's a free agent so currently earning £0 per week. That's not to say a team wont come in and make him an offer we can't compete with, but he was happy at Saints previously, played his best football with us and is well liked around the club, a combination of things he's not really had since leaving Saints. Wright's interview on Saints tv suggests that we've got players in mind for this month and he's hoping to complete something in the 'coming days or weeks'. O'Halloran feels like the natural shout given his previous links with us and the fact he's become available. Scougall will almost certainly leave this month and he's almost certainly one of our top earners. Transfer that wage to O'Halloran - who we know will give us goals and assists from his previous spell with us - and I think we give ourselves an excellent chance of getting him. Edit: The return of MOH will surely hasten the return of old forum favourite @Inchcolm too.

    I'm of a similar mind as blueheaven and Shaggy Jenkins. If he's available, we can afford him and he wants to come then it makes complete sense. He's a quality player who fits into our team. If we sign him on an 18 month deal or more, we will end up with Wright, Kennedy, Swanson, O'Halloran all signed for next season with Alston and Wotherspoon in discussions over a new deal. Outrageous options in the attacking midfield positions for a club like Saints.

    Agree I think we'll sign someone but it's not desperate. I wouldn't be against us bringing in a young centre mid for a small fee and on a long contract to see if they'll develop into the Chris Millar/Liam Craig role. We're under no pressure in the league - given where we are I doubt we'll finish below 8th even if we do collapse - so now is the time to do that if we're in any way inclined to. I hope we don't make any loan signings as I think that would be pretty pointless considering where we are as a team.

    MOTM Game 21 Saints 2 v 2 Hearts

    I would probably have said Alston or Wotherspoon in the first half but both fell away in the second. Has to be Kerr for me who is getting better all the time.
