  1. Anyone know of a stream of this match ? I know Hibs TV are streaming it but anyone know of any other streams ?
  2. Ciftci joins Plymouth on loan, so we can stop banging his name about
  3. It is disappointing that 2 weeks have passed since our first competitive game, which highlighted to everyone the desperate need for a striker, and there has not been so much as a rumour of us having inquired for or gone after anyone in that department. Granted, this may be going on behind the scenes, but normally these things have a habit of sneaking out. Either the staff at McDiarmid are the world best at keeping secrets, or there is just not much happening
  4. There is a lot of discussion in the press over the past few days regarding the possibility of McLean playing on the plastic pitch. Is this a genuine attempt by Tommy to unsettle the opposition, as I tend to read this as a bit of a veiled dig at Steve Brown, by saying, we don't have another striker to rely on, therefore, I need to risk McLean. Am I reading a bit too much into this, or is anyone else getting this feeling ?
  5. Agree with the summation 100%. I had read about Dorley prior to the game, but I was impressed none the less, although his finishing was very wild, but at 18, he has plenty of time to sharpen this up. Was impressed that the whole stadium clapped the boy off, and shows a bit of class from our fans to appreciate a young talent, even though he is an opposition player. Last night really drove home the need for another striker to be purchased. The defense and midfield will sort themselves out, with Ando coming back, Easton and Foster getting a bit sharper and Midge to replace Paton (who had his worst game in a saints shirt IMO), however, Cummins has shown for a while now that he is not a regular goalscorer. As Blueheaven said, we can't rely on Macca on a consistent basis, and I too have no faith that Kane can provide the necessary goals over a season. It was clear very early (and I said to people sitting around me in the East Stand) that we were clearly lacking pace upfront. There were a few occasions that a pacey striker would have had the legs on their centre backs, but our strikers had to resort to holding up the ball and turning back in order to bring others in, rather than being able to run on to through balls. On last nights showing, I can not envisage us scoring 2 goals over there, and not conceding, however, Saints have surprised us with results in the past, so I will cling to a little bit of hope that we are not out just yet.
  6. My team would be :- Clark Foster Shaughnessy Gordon Easton Alston Paton Davidson Craig Scougall Macca This will be a tight game, as Trakai seem adept at sitting in and frustrating teams, so we may have to be patient on this one, but I think we can win this 2-0
  7. My team for the first game would be -------------------------------Marshall---------------------------------- Paterson------------Hanley-----------Martin-----------Robertson ----------------------Bannan-----------Fletcher---------------------- Snodgrass------------------Naismith-------------------------Burke -------------------------------Griffiths----------------------------------
  8. Latest squad for Scotland - a return for Lee Wallace and Shaun Maloney. I hope that he sticks with a similar team that won in Malta, and not throw in the likes of Hutton and Wallace ahead of the younger guys. Also surprised that Chris Martin is still in the squad ahead of guys like Ross McCormack and Jordan Rhodes. Scotland squad Goalkeepers: Craig Gordon (Celtic), Jack Hamilton (Hearts), David Marshall (Hull City). Defenders: Christophe Berra (Ipswich Town), Gordon Greer (Blackburn Rovers), Grant Hanley (Newcastle United), Alan Hutton (Aston Villa), Russell Martin (Norwich City), Callum Paterson (Hearts), Andrew Robertson (Hull City), Kieran Tierney (Celtic), Lee Wallace (Rangers). Midfielders: Ikechi Anya (Derby County), Barry Bannan (Sheffield Wednesday), Oliver Burke (RB Leipzig), Darren Fletcher (West Bromich Albion), James Forrest (Celtic), James McArthur (Crystal Palace), John McGinn (Hibs), Barrie Mckay (Rangers), Shaun Maloney (Hull City), James Morrison (West Bromich Albion), Matt Ritchie (Newcastle United), Robert Snodgrass (Hull City). Forwards: Steven Fletcher (Sheffield Wednesday), Leigh Griffiths (Celtic), Chris Martin (Derby County), Steven Naismith (Norwich City).
  9. My question would be, why let a young defender in Brad McKay go when it is looking increasingly likely that Dave Mackay is unlikely to play and is probably earning more than Brad ?
  10. Good to see that the stewards are enforcing the "no standing" rules with the Celtic fans........................................not
  11. This suggests that Dave MacKay is perhaps finished, but with Watson about to start training, and Brad McKay showing up well in the Centre, this smacks a bit of a panic buy, unless Scobbie is also expected to be out for longer than first thought. This will allow Joe to move into Centre back, if he plays Foster, but would mean McKay potentially losing out again. A fairly steady player, but wouldn't have been a position that I thought we needed strengthening at the moment.

    Paul Paton

    I am pleased with this signing - adds a bit of steel to the midfield when Miller and Muzz are inevitably injured. Welcome to Saints, Mr Paton
  14. According to the courier, Alston to be signed by the end of the day, after a medical
