    Taxi for Tommy?

    Definitely. I wonder if Callaghan was seen as a ball winning central midfielder before he signed? Though that doesn't appear to be his style on the few games hes played so far.

    Saints v Celtic sunday

    Sadly I agree. He obviously has ability on the ball but is brushed aside so easily most of the time. Not strong enough for this level. He had a very good first half v Aberdeen but I thought he got a bit of a roasting by GMS in the second. Foster was limping before he was subbed. Drey Wright had dropped back to fill in at right back a minute or so before the fifth goal and Foster was at right mid.

    Saints v Celtic sunday

    Same as you, it was ridiculous that the police were just having a word for 15 minutes instead of lifting the folk. They folk wearing the same jackets were also allowed onto the track before the game to tape their flags over the advertising boards at the front of the stand, when Saints fans have been told to remove theirs in the past. I'd be asking Saints for a refund if i was paying for that advertising board! And the Ira song content was as bad as I've heard it for a long while. It's bizarre how the police, tv companies, media, politicians etc turn a blind eye to it. You look at the outrage we rightly show in this country at some Eastern European countries/ Italy etc being hugely racist at some games and getting huge fines, playing behind closed doors etc, and yet look what we accept in this country. The first question BT should have asked Brendan Rogers was what he thought of his support singing sectarian songs, but not a word. The sad fact is the media, police and politicians are too scared to upset either half of the old firm. Was the guy who got stretchered away definitely due to fighting? I wasn't sure if it was a medical issue as he looked a bit older.

    Yes they did, but I wonder how much their decisions were influenced by the constant criticism. I guess the point was more the lack of appreciation for how solid and committed a team we had. Light years away from the past few weeks.

    Saints v Celtic sunday

    I think blaming the tactics is missing the bigger issue. I was reasonably okay with the line up, though I said I’d have preferred Craig as a sitting midfielder to either one of Spoony or Callahan, and was surprised we didn’t make use of his experience in there. If a full back slips on the ball and let’s a player run straight thru on goal, if the two centre backs fail to put pressure/ win a header against the strikers the entire first half to the point where they’re regularly allowed to turn, if the three central midfielders won’t put in a strong challenge the whole half etc etc.. then it doesn’t matter what line up and tactics you go for. We are soft and heartless throughout the team. Second half Sinclair looks to be getting away in a dangerous position so Ando takes him out and takes the booking. We didn’t do that once in the first half. Tanser and others let Forrest etc back them into the penalty box to the point where they couldn’t risk a challenge time and time again. If a midfielder or Tanser or Joe takes them out in midfield then danger averted and everyone can get back. Yes a few more bookings, but share the fouls around the team. We used to be streetwise. Now I think everyone will love playing against us until we learn to do the dirty work.

    I’d like to give a special mention to the many on here that have constantly slaughtered our older players and shouted for them to be punted every season, despite always being competitive and numerous top six finishes. To the point where a lot of folk got their wish, and we’ve now got a team with the heart of a pea, absolutely spineless. So if I was Alan Mannus, Fraser Wright, Steven Anderson, Chris Millar, Steven MacLean etc I’d be sitting laughing like **** at that first half performance today. Careful what you wish for.

    Hearts V St.Johnstone Saturday 29th September

    Agree, our centre midfield is dreadful. We gave hearts the ball back at every opportunity. We are soft as shite. Barely committed a foul all day yet whenever we looked to get any chance of attacking hearts would happily concede a foul. We had no leaders out there today. Hearts were efficient but we could easily have got something out the game if we’d been on it. Fair play to the Saints fans there today who came away quite positive about our performance. I felt we did nothing until the game was gone. I thought we were pretty pish I’m afraid and hearts should have been out of sight by the time we started playing.

    Aye that was the one I was thinking about when I read his comments a few days after the Aberdeen game. But then Tommy said last season he felt he was unfairly portrayed as the villain over the Midge situation, so maybe rumours and second hand info are misleading.. who knows!

    Hearts V St.Johnstone Saturday 29th September

    I wasn't told about this either, though to be honest I missed the announcements about Tynecastle tickets being for sale, and only found out on here. But an £8 difference is bizarre. The stands area similar layout to the East and end stands at McDiarmid, with about 6-8 rows at the front, a walkway then the majority of seats behind. It's the equivalent of an £8 difference at McD for folk down the front. Mental!

    Hearts V St.Johnstone Saturday 29th September

    Yes. I asked about it, apparently it's an spfl thing to do with conduct at matches or something and if there's any bother then they can trace it. Shame they're less interested when 4000 Celtic fans want to sing songs about the ira. Or 48000 sing about hating Catholics at Ibrox a few days earlier. Still, I'm sure their intentions are honourable.

    Tommy said after the Liam Craig disagreement during the Aberdeen game that he doesn't bear any grudges and with him once it's over, it's forgotten. So if the Scougall disappearance is down to a fall out rather than him just preferring other players for the bench, then that's disappointing he's keeping it going.

    St Johnstone v Celtic Betfred Cup QF 26/09

    Think we set up 4-4-1-1 with Williams off Maclean? I was there but can't remember the formation that well to be honest. We had the better chances in the first half but they came at us much more in the second according to the match report. We 'won' the corner count 7-5 so I'd say we must have gone for it a bit. The corner count on Wednesday night was 1-13 !! I think a draw away at Celtic in a league match is a great point, so could understand it if we'd been ultra defensive there. A home cup match less so.

    Hearts V St.Johnstone Saturday 29th September

    Time to step up. Hearts will be confident after a good start but they don't have the same quality of players as Rangers or Celtic, so hopefully we set up positively. The 4-4-1-1 we were playing prior to the 2 most recent games was working well for us so maybe time to go back to it. Or even have a go with a 4-4-2 which we've not really seen this season. Really tough being lone striker, but thought Watt was possibly our poorest player in the first half on Wednesday, so maybe McMillan or Kane or both starting would be no bad thing. Always enjoy a trip to a Tynecastle. We lost 3 out of 3 at Hearts last season, so we owe them. Be disappointed if we don't take anything out of the game.
