  1. Not going to say I enjoyed it at the time but will do when I watch it back. When you are a man up for so long and a goal down the pressure watching it is incredible so imagine how the players feel? That's why I was so happy how patient we were. Never once did we resort to punting it, even with 3 strikers on. Williams was a great substitution and looks a real talented player. Tanser despite being poor in the tackle a couple of times gave a great outlet down the left and was so unlucky with his free kick again. Kane again missed some of his easier chances but a hell of a goal we scored, great build up play and a top top finish. His overall games improved so much lately, bullying defenders and his holdup and link play is now coming on. Glad we're showing faith in him.
  2. Dundee v Saints

    Could feel it in my bones we'd win today. Just knew it. Fantastic result. Superb.
  3. St.Johnstone v Rangers 19:45 27/2/18

    Not many positives from that game. Improved when Spoony came on. Midfield never laid a glove on them all game and Willock was brutal. Mannus had a stinker too. Ando can't play against Morelos. He gets too tight and they just lift it in behind him. Way too easy. I left when they started singing God Save the Queen. Bad enough watching that performance without listening to that rubbish too.
  4. St Johnstone v Ross County 3pm 24/02/18

    Enjoyable game. Ando was immense but I have to credit Kerr too who absolutely strolled it. Calm, composed, dominant. Very mature defender. In Midfield Millar gave a platform for Davidson to be his marauding best. Won every tackle and drove at county all day. Amazing display. Up top better link play from Macca and Kane was very good, powerful and played a great reverse for Muzz and the second goal. There were spells in the game where we actually passed it and put some nice moves together, shows we are capable. As for County? Terrible.
  5. I don't agree. We went through a spell offering extensions to players based on appearances and certain players should have been moved on to freshen up the team. We've gone stale and the manager watched it happen. Our style of play got worse and age of team got older. We all seen it coming, perhaps not so quickly but it was on the cards.
  6. I'm not one to jump the gun but cant deny I'm seriously concerned. We can't even score at the moment never mind win. Tommy is struggling but he deserves the chance to keep us up. If we go down we go down. I actually quite enjoy division one, I just hate watching us fall apart en route.

    Hmmm. Been a long time since we've experienced this feeling as Saints fans but we've been here before. Time the players kicked on now and learned how to scrap because like it or not we are in the dog fight now.
  8. Heart's v St Johnstone 03/02/18

    Kane's effort off the bar was top class technique. The ball was 3 yards behind him. Maybe there's a player in there afterall and that loan spell at queens will be a masterstroke.
  9. Heart's v St Johnstone 03/02/18

    Not going to lose too much sleep over this result. If we had ten more points on the board already folk wouldn't even bat an eyelid as long as we played well. The fact we've been sucked into this relegation battle is making everyone nervous. For as long as we are playing well i have faith we will be fine. Up until this week we've been brutal though so going to take this one as a positive because we played well.

    Also in the camp that i didn't like his style as a footballer but there are others I would have released first. Gave his all though and never let us down. Had some really good performances. Not a possession player though and contributed to our poor style of play.

    Both loan signings. To be fair both young lads did ok on Monday but i still think someone is coming in. Mackenzie?

    Paul Paton gone!!!! Now that's a shock. Who's coming in?
  13. Scottish cup 4th round draw Monday 4.45

    Kane looked sharp on Saturday and proved it tonight. Excellent display and credit to Denny Johnstone who worked his socks off creating space for Kane. Possible partnership? Credit to all the young lads too. Gordon the pick of the defenders. Kerr comfortable. Maclean grew into the game and tried to pass the ball. Really liked the look of Ali McCann. He was battering into challenges like nothing else and showed good composure. Nice to see positives.

    I hope we're not hanging around waiting on O'halloran or Swanson. Would be nice to see us think outside the box for a change.
  15. St Johnstone v Partick Thistle, 27 January 2018

    The Watson decision was proof if ever we needed it that Tommy does not trust young players. That's why consistently we've had the oldest and slowest team in the league. That's also why we have a squad full of players past their prime, all with contracts, all difficult to move on. Kerr should have been brought in yesterday because Ando and Joe have been hopeless for weeks. Watson was not even remotely fit yet gets put up against the fastest winger in the league. These are decisions that Tommy needs to justify. I'm glad his patience and loyalty has worn thin otherwise he'd be out of a job by the end of the season the way things are going. A good manager knows when to move players on. It was one of Sir Alex Fergusons greatest traits. Unfortunately it's a skill Tommy has yet to master. Maybe this is the turning point.
