  1. Lack of Ambition or Direction

    I would rather they didn't bring their religious fundamentalism anywhere near our club.
  2. Saints playing at a good pace. All the energy and commitment that was missing from the first leg. Trakai happen to see this out with a draw by the look of it.
  3. Lack of Ambition or Direction

    I think we have to accept that these are halcyon days for our club. Without a drastic change in circumstances, an additional 2-3k supporters making their way through the turnstiles we simply cannot sustain any kind of investment. Bottom line is spending cannot outstrip revenue and the club is structured this way. Not a popular opinion I will admit, but I'd rather see use solvent than in the Premiership. I have a hope that the Bertha Park development will be the seedbed for a new generation of Saints supports, but that's a possible long term answer to a very immediate need.
  4. FK Trakai (H) - Europa League Round 1 - 29/06/17

    I thought too many players failed to provide any kind of performance. They looked far more rusty then their limited time off would suggest. It's never nice to single out players, but I simply don't understand what Cummins brings to the team.You can talk all day about his running and hold up play, but far too often he is half a yard short on the end of a pass or fluffs it in front of goal. He's a million miles away from the kind of performance we saw from him in his first season. He also falls over with the slightest breeze.
  5. Help getting to Euro game 29th June

    If you don't squeezing into the back of a Golf then you're more than welcome.
  6. Help getting to Euro game 29th June

    Cash at the gate, so I'm defo going. I'll probably be heading up after work (Finnieston), but happy to detour if you need picked up.
  7. Help getting to Euro game 29th June

    Hi, I plan to be heading to the game; will be able to confirm as soon as the club puts tickets on sale and I can get one. Happy to give you a lift. Where in Glasgow are you?
  8. Quiet in Here

    Hi, guys. Seems very quite in here. With the new season fast approaching should we try and get a bit more of a social feel about the place? Perhaps a wee meet up and a few beers before the Euro fixtures? Maybe even try and find a place in Glasgow that has a feed for our away leg (very long shot I know).
  9. Our New Council

    This has all gone a bit Follow Follow.
  10. Player Contracts + Transfers

    Graham had a stinking attitude on the pitch. I remember Dave MacKay laughing at him when he proper chucked his toys out the pram when he didn't get a pass he was asking for. Has a propensity to dive too. I'd quite happily pass. We need pace up front. Cummins is pacey, but he's a half yard short too often.
  11. Indy Ref 2

    I think the timing of the vote, if a vote is authorised, will be key. The Westminster government needs to be be given as much time as possible. They need to prove to the Scottish electorate that Scotland are partners in the union and not just along for the ride. What I think is clear is that this vote is a choice between 2 unknowns, it's no longer a case of voting No to maintain the status quo.
  12. Seating for Old Firm Home Matches

    Old Firm? Rangers died in 2012. That said, I'd be willing to give Celtic and The Rangers the East Stand and the North Stand. Although my season ticket is for the West Stand and I'd be hacked off if I were asked to move. Perhaps a free pie and Bovril as compensation for those displaced?
  13. Best Saints songs ever

    We hate Dundee. The classics are the best.
  14. Saints v Sevco Wed. 28/12/16

    They're no different to Grenta. Admitted into the league and financed beyond their means that has elevated them to a false position. Saints have nothing to fear from Sevco5088. Tonight is a test of bottle, not of anything else. I wouldn't see a win tonight as an achievement. I would see a defeat as a setback mind you however.
  15. Car Park mayhem

    The car park is just a shambles from start to finish. I have a season pass so choose to park there, but I won't be renewing it next year. In all honesty I get back to my car and sit and listen to the radio until the place has thinned out a bit. However on the rare occasions were I have somewhere to be in a hurry the place is an utter shambles. Pedestrians wondering apparently aimlessly in and out of traffic is a real hazard. Why the stewards do not funnel them I have no idea. Then when that's all done there's always some grey-haired arsehole in a Mercedes displaying their sense of entitlement by barging through and stewards who don't seem to be able to count. The solution, as I see it, is 2 fold: 1)Channel pedestrians into specific lanes and 2)First in first out for traffic.Empty the carpark from nearest the Ormond Stand row by row; the traffic to the West of the main stand comes out last.
