    Agree - put only up to a point. First, I'll repeat we were lucky last season because other clubs lost key players, as much as the performances of our own team. (And that's not to downplay our achievements; I tell myself this as much to keep expectations in check this year).
     
    But even if we agree that the more experienced players did help us get that fourth place - I'll even generously brush aside Chris Kane's role - in retrospect (and I know this is easy) would we be in a better place now if we'd risked some younger players and lost fourth?
     
    I'm not worried about this season - we have the players to do ok. But long-term Saints will be in trouble unless (i) we continue to win cups every year or ( ii ) we produce saleable youngsters. Getting them out on loan is a start, but I fear that every time Tommy Wright is minded to buy in experience rather than play youngsters. Eventually we'll lose out both in terms of the value of the young players we produce, and our attractiveness to young players.
     
    I won't deny Tommy's approach has done well this far - but it has to hit us eventually unless we keep riding this wave of success. Are we ready for it?

    I think it's quite clear most people's problem with the red and black was that it was a novelty that was used twice. (Personally I actually preferred the second iteration though).

    The new strip is brilliant. I like everything about it that I don't like about the home one, it's simple it's clean, it'll look good when playing fives.

    Conveniently forgetting about the point deduction which in effect relegated them.

    Not sure how impressed I am with this idea. The Playhouse is honestly one of my favourite things about Perth and potential for a big chain to come in and undermine that seems a bit of a shame.

    Seems to have been quite a lot of investment in Perth recently, could be wrong but think B&Q and Homebase are only definitely empty unit at retail park, and stories on other forum about things going in them both.

    The centre although not thriving isn't that empty either.

    However it seems like Perth has moved away from its support of independent retailers and that a real shame. Perth has potential to be different from other Scottish towns and cities, but has moved away from that especially since getting city status. Hopefully I'm just being pessimistic, and it'll end up as a boon but just worried it'll become a white elephant.

    That's not football rivalry, that's lunacy. I don't understand how folk can glorify that in any way.

    For those of you who wouldn't see my post on Facebook, now that the sales of the book have largely dried up I've done my totting up. I've sent the Club cheques for £1845, plus £600 worth of books, so once they've sold those, the profit from the book going to the club's Academy will be £2445.
     
    A big thanks to everyone who bought copies, and to everyone who contributed.
