Good God. Agree with @garydavidson wtf???? Someone's on magic mushies. Is this what the marketing person/ interstellar space oddity came up with??? This is a joke. Please say it is. We've had whacky stuff in the past like GB's jockey stuff, cardboard fan cut-outs, Scougall getting abducted,  but I'd suggest it is a 1 episode epic .... crap. Sort out the website, get decent stuff on there.... ffs Saints.  Appalling.

I bought a copy lunchtime today.

While Gary should be applauded for attempting to revive the magazine and I agree with his editorial comments that he thinks programmes are important to match days, there is no hiding from the fact that this is very poor.

The programme on match days has nothing in it and this magazine is little better.

40 pages for a fiver.

Page 4 has a picture of Scougall which I suppose has novelty if nothing else.

You will read this in ten minutes and there is nothing in it that any Saints fan will not already know.

I wonder what the target market is, my first thoughts were it was aimed at kids, its certainly colourful and glossy, the adverts in it don t flow with that though as they are for Joiners, Jewellers and of course the big advert on back page for G S Brown.

Another way of looking at this is it's a bit of publicity for Saints while normally there is none. If you want any info online you have to go looking for it, whereas this is in your face on shop shelves in Perth and Perthshire.

There's a good thread on the go just now about ideas to better our crowd and attract people along.

If one wee guy goes into Nisa in Bankfoot with his mum and persuades her to buy a copy, then lo and behold persuades his dad to get off his backside and take her to a game, then it's a winner for me.

(Other gender/parenting scenarios are available).

Times change and things move on from the early nineties, when this would have been a good idea. From what is described, much of this content could be included in a (better) match programme, leaving then a focus for much more modern content, i.e. videos, social media, website. Stuff that is far more likely to promote engagement with supporters as well.

Some guy does Nisa in Bankfoot, with his mum, then a dad getting off on his backside? Bankfoot is... lively...

Page 3 is purely a list of contents.

So many space fillers, an A to Z of Saints in the Community covers 4 pages for example.

2 pages about Youth development needs a full page picture of  Alistair Stevenson on one of the pages and another half page picture of him on the other page with a small piece of actual written content.

Agree, if a few kids but it and end up coming to games its maybe served a purpose.

For supporters looking for something interesting to read though, doesn't work for me.

Aye.

write an article about the rise and disappearance of the fcu at the hands of the club.

or the blatant discrimination of searching auld duffers in the west stand at the recent Celtic match whilst not doing as rigorous a search in the other stands.dont believe the slo.

On the list of priorities for promoting St Johnstone a magazine is definitely not top as seems to have been the case. It's really quite unbelievable.

Don’t knock it.do yer own then

Agree,don't think it will be a money maker especially when I doubt if they can include much that most Saints fans already know.

Maybe they are going to stop updating OS Oh wait !.
