  1. For me, this season has been, so far, a par performance - we are pretty much where I would expect us to be. I am disappointed that we didnt make top 6 but in the same way as I am disappointed when we get knocked out of the cup. I hope that we get top 6 but i didnt expect it. Its been a very unusual season with the timings of the winning/losing streaks. If we had been scraping along at the bottom of the table and then put together all those consecutive wins/clean sheets to get us to our current position I would be absolutely delighted. I am only disappointed because of what might have been given our position at Christmas.

    Coming Home

    Although Perth may be restricted in terms of job opportunties (i.e. there's not that many major employers other than those you mention), it's not actually that much of a commute to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee etc. where the job options are greater. Of course, that would still be too much for many people, but I work in the Midlands and loads of my colleagues have a commute of an hour plus each way and see it as quite normal (and I have several friends living in London who have a much shorter commute in terms of distance but it still takes them well over an hour to get to work).
  3. Forget stopping the treble - that would be a trivial side benefit. Our only realistic chance of winning a trophy comes in the cups and with the squad that we have at the moment we should be looking to progress with a view to being serious contenders.
  4. Ah. Only saw the highlights of that game - hadnt appreciated it was so early on.
  5. This was my first game since we beat St Mirren back in October. Pleased with the result, shame it wasnt a great spectacle but you cant have everything. I thought Jason Kerr was outstanding - really very solid and there was only one time that I thought he was caught out (by an admittedly poor Hamilton side). For all that everyone is raving about our attacking options (rightly so), its clear that its the defence that is responsible for our league position. Its a while since I have seen such a balanced side and one with so many options from the bench too. I was also really impressed by Callachan. I think his was one of the most underwhelming signings in the summer and I had forgotten all about him until he made his debut. The fact that the team didnt miss Muzz shows that he performed very well. Disappointed by Kane - I really want him to be successful but for all his hard work, he made some poor decisions. I cant see him getting the chance to start many more games. Any stattos know when we last scored that early in a game?
  6. So, we lost to Aberdeen and Rangers, drew with Aberdeen and Hibs, and beat Motherwell. Nothing to be worried about here (even if you ignore the woefully small sample size)
  7. How does he compare to that giant, Jody Morris?

    Hardly surprising - Saints aren't in any real danger of relegation (neither are Motherwell) so games are unlikely to attract an audience.
  9. I agree with your logic. However, for me I would say it was a dangerous tackle. There may have been no studs showing but he wiped the guy out. This wasn't a sly tug on the shirt or a subtle trip. Anyway, the ref obviously saw it differently and that is something I am grateful for. On a different note, why is this kind of cynical cheating acceptable, but diving to win a penalty isn't?
  10. I don't know enough about the laws of the game, but I don't agree that it "clearly" wasnt a red card. Surely, the ref could determine that the tackle was serious foul play? Or that it was endangering an opponent? It was essentially an off the ball incident given how far away Alston was from the ball. Of course, I was delighted the ref gave a yellow but I think Alston was lucky.

    Was this pub not featured in a Tennents advert - must have been 1985/1986?
  12. Of course there is. Footballers are people and football clubs are businesses. Recruiting and managing talent is a constant concern for many organisations.
  13. Thank you so much for this. I keep forgetting to check. Managed to have a results blackout all afternoon, and sat down to watch the whole game without knowing what happened. Fortunately it was only a rubber band that I chucked at the telly when Hibs scored! Bloody brilliant game.
  14. There's no difference. Doctors have to abide by GMC code of conduct, physios by the HCPC code of conduct. They have pretty much the same requirements in terms of confidentiality.

    A quick look at Wikipedia would have answered my query earlier... "There is, however, one substantial difference in Scotland since there is no distinction between review of a public body and a private body, which is different from, for example, judicial review in England and Wales, where review is only possible in the case of a public body or a quasi-public body"
