  1. Season Tickets 2018-2019

    This close season I have come to the conclusion that despite what is always being said about Saints in the media and by rival fans alike, we are not a well run club! A well run business maybe, but a well run professional, Scottish Premiership club? No, not by a long shot.

    In all honesty it's a position for a team of two or more.

    You have to bear in mind that there is a huge number of people that no longer even receive emails from the club despite being on their database, such is the substandard software they use. How many times have you heard someone complaining they used to get Tommy's weekly email however no longer do? I know I'm certainly in that boat! So even if the club were to be even remotely proactive and send the opt in email to adhere with GDPR, half the people on the database would never even see it.

    Far too forward thinking, we'll get a sheet of paper in the post some time this summer to be filled outwith a Biro

    Murray Davidson is our hard tackling centre mid, what we need is someone similar to Chris Millar's playing style. Someone with the ability to put their foot on the ball under pressure and find a pass to link up the play between defense and attack. With out this we constantly resort to lumping it forward from the back and hoping for the best, which never comes off for us.

    A bit leftfield and likely unpopular but I kind of like the stripes Your-BLK-Design (3).pdf Your-BLK-Design (2).pdf Your-BLK-Design (1).pdf
  8. Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

    I've been pretty sure this is the last season with Joma since the end of last season, so if others are echoing this there must have been something announced in the past. I've actually been hoping for Marcon to take over as I personally think their kits this season have been pretty class. Subtle little touches, yet pretty traditional football kits, on what appear to be of a high quality finish. Also I don't really care if it's bespoke or not, just something that's a traditional looking St Johnstone kit in traditional St Johnstone blue! Joma failed at every attempt to get our club colours correct, and apart from a couple of decent efforts they have been in the most part, pretty poor and unpopular as far as design and quality is concerned. Add to that the years of the Surridge sports pish we had it's high time we had a good quality popular Saints kit again.

    Don't get me wrong, I am in no means an advocate for Kane being our messiah and one and only hope. In fact I have been quoted many times as saying he's not a Premiership quality striker. However he does appear to have improved this season after his loan period at QoS, so maybe there is a Prem striker in there somewhere. If McMillan can replicate what he did at Dundalk and get on a good goal scoring run I reckon Kane could feed of that, as opposed to being the main target man (Macca drops too deep these days) as he has been this season.

    Personally I don't think we need to be chucking too much money at the Striker position for next season. A fully fit combo of McMillan and Kane could be quite tasty, with Hendry hopefully growing in potential once also injury free and given some first team game time. As for Johnstone, if it were me I'd let him go on the gamble of being able to recruit a bargain from the EFL or somewhere, they couldn't be much worse so likely improve our options. Of course all of this is wishful thinking but not at all far fetched.
  11. Lack of Ambition or Direction

    Took us what, seven years? I've been saying it for many a year, but it has to be one of the toughest most competitive leagues in the whole of the British Isles. Come the first kick of a ball on the opening day of the season you literally have no idea who's going to win the bloody thing. As you mentioned, St Mirren are a prime example.

    No, but it does make for a bloody good evening
  13. Return to Tynecastle

    Not heard much chat about plans for this weekends game. Quite probably due to us having no games for about four weeks, then of course getting papped at home (again) last Saturday, has all likely just added to a feeling of apathy and general Meh-ness about our season as a whole so far. However, a professional win away to Albion Rovers in the Scottish Cup last night, and chat of three, maybe four good sounding signings before Wednesday has given Saints fans bit of a lift going into the weekends fixtures. This all coincides with us finally returning to everyone's favourite away game at Tynecastle on Saturday. So a close up look of their shiny new Main stand, hopefully some refreshing new signings, and of course one or two small libations throughout the day means I for one am thoroughly looking forward this weekends fixture. We do have Hearts at Tynecastle again next Saturday in the cup also, however chat for that can begin next week. Our away form has been far better than our home this season so I'm going for an upset of form for the Jambo's and go with a 1-2 Saints win. Polwarth Tavern from 12pm for pre match pints of course.

    I never said he wouldn't, though I will admit to omitting 'yet' to the end of my earlier sentence regarding Gordon. Or are you just getting your wires crossed with talk of playing levels and particular players mentioned? Time to look out your bottle bottom specs Sir
