  1. Round 17 - Hibs (A), 18/11/17

    best ZERO points I have had all season....
  2. Round 17 - Hibs (A), 18/11/17

    Hibs 2-0 Saints. Murray 16,004
  3. Saints v Celtic 4/11/17

    Because before, we saw hope, we saw green shoots we saw bad luck.. This time we see none of these things.. I still don't think that many actually are calling for TW to gert binned but we are calling on him to sort it out. As for the whole club emptied, again not quite. We have some decent young players to build a squad round but up to 8 of the current squad need to either be moved on or have their roles reduced.. I think we all know who they are.
  4. Saints v Celtic 4/11/17

    I don't think anyone would look at that game in isolation and be wanting to self harm but as part of our current run of awfulness, it adds to the angst.. We are shite right now and have been for most of the season and as has been stated , the mistakes that cost us today are the same mistakes we are making every week.. No amount of sugar coating, bluff, or bluster is gonna change this fact.
  5. Saints v Celtic 4/11/17

    Well that was hardly unexpected ( in fact, I went 4-0 Celtic in the predictor) They are a verygood side, we are a shite side. It doesnae need a rocket scientist to see where it was gonna end up. This is the poorest Saints side I have seen since possibly the year we last went down. To many passengers, too many players who are injury prone, to many players that are needing to drop down a level and a general lack of belief, leadership, tactical nouse and basic footballing skills. We are in trouble, make no mistake and unless there are some positive changes we may end up with a fight on our hands that I fear we don't have the fight to win. I do suspect the " nothing to see here " brigade will tell us how good Celtic are etc etc etc.. I am not that sure, They have struggled in a few games recently against Killie and Dundee but it was certainly easy street today. I have had enough of Macca, Spoony, Foster, Alston and a few others . No fight at all today. Unable to place simple passes and not even the tiniest bit of cutting edge.. There were NO positives yet again today.
  6. Round 16 - Celtic (H), 04/11/17

    Saints 0-4 Celtic 6900 Griffiths
  7. Saints v Celtic 4/11/17

    I love the positivity but sadly can't share it. We will get pumped tomorrow. Scoring a goal will be a moral victory but not sure that we will even manage that. Really really hope I am wrong but I see a 4-0 or worse... I will still be there though, giving my support whatever the result ...
  8. Partick v Saints 28/10/17

    I love it when someone comes in here and gives their opinion and then the usual suspects try to disrespect that persons opinion by (a) calling them a panic merchant (or words to the effect) (b) simply mocking them or (c) very occasionally trying to present a counter argument. Herts has got some valid points and I agree with a lot of what he's said. NOBODY wants the manager sacked. NOBODY wants to see the team going downhill. NOBODY wants to see loyal players moved on.. but the simple fact is that we have an aging squad . Many of them are on the way down and the team does need major surgery. We really really needed a striker but for whatever reason all we got was Denny Johnstone who is ( on what I have seen of him ) pretty hopeless at this level. We all hope that things pick up but some of us see something this year we have not seen for a long time. We see a team in decline. Some fans cannot accept even constructive criticism and merrily pound on, reminding us at every turn to " Keep the Faith" . I am a St.Johnstone supporter, I will continue to support my team, whatever league they are in as I and many others have for many years but if the team are not winning games, if the team are not scoring goals and if some of the players no longer look up to the job, I refuse to just bury my head in the sand and claim " everythings fine" and "nothing to see here" Everything is far from fine, but by fitbas very nature, there is an opportunity to pull out of the tailspin. I hope that the manager, the players and the board make it happen.. I hope they do. I hope I am wrong and that the others are right but I can't see where it's coming from..
  9. Partick v Saints 28/10/17

    On a brighter note, I had 1-0 Thistle in the predictor. The only positive I can take from yet another day of firing blanks.
  10. Round 15 - Partick (A), 28/10/17

    Jags 1-0 Saints Doolan 2456
  11. Saints v Ross County

    Plenty changes then
  12. Round 14 - Ross C (H), 24/10/17

    Saints 2-1 Ross County Macca 2890
  13. Saints v Ross County

    whoever scores first in this game wins it. Lets hope it's us. Still not sure where a goal is coming from though. We just look devoid of ideas in the final 3rd. Something has to change though. Senior pros need to stand up and be counted. We need to take some shots, we need to run with the ball and most of all we need to try playing fitba on the deck.. We really could do with a win in this one as the next few fixtures are hardly easy ones. I would happily take a scrappy 1-0 with an OG .. I remain fearful though. I hope Tommy goes for it full throttle but suspect it will be another cagey shitefest
  14. Hearts v Saints at MURRAYFIELD

    And while I am ranting about todays game... £21 for 3 burgers, 2 cokes and a coffee from a mobile snack van... At least d*** Turpin had the decency to wear a ****ing mask.. Robbing bastards. And the quality of fitba on display today was summed up in two kicks of the ball late in the game. Ball passed back to Mannus, who under pressure utterly balloons the ball high and well right. It drops to Walker who fancies his chances of a wee side foot into an empty goal but manages to put it out for a throw in almost behind him..
  15. Hearts v Saints at MURRAYFIELD

    Very disappointed by todays display. To say Saints lack a cutting edge is a huge understatement. We look utterly devoid of ability to actually put the ball in the ****ing net. We had ONE shot on target. ONE ****ing shot (and it was pish poor powder puff). Never during that game was there a WOW!!! moment, a "great save by the keeper" moment or an "unlucky " moment or even a "FFS , what a miss moment " . We created zilch. We have no God given right to beat a team like Hearts... who out spend us all round, but the fact is we will struggle to beat ANYONE playing like we are. It's time for the manager to get this sorted. The players seem to lack motivation, they certainly lack tactical direction. I said after the Rangers loss that we were a team in decline ( I took a bit of " knicker wetting" stick for that but I stand by my comments). I have seen declining Saints sides before and this side has all the hallmarks of a downwards spiralling side. I hope I am wrong, I hope the manager gets things sorted, I hope the players find their mojos and their touch.. The next two game represent a good chance for 6 points for a Saints side playing well.. Whether we can achieve this could go a long way to defining the rest of our season.. It MUST be better than todays horseshite
