"Relationships in football sometimes come to an end and this was certainly one of those times," he said.

"Sometimes in football relationships change and things happen and it is probably best for us both that I have moved on."

Foster is returning to a club with whom he has good memories..."It is a club where I had a lot of success," he said. "It is a club where my family and my wife enjoyed coming up to support me.

"It is very family orientated here. When the opportunity arose to come back, it was one I snatched at."

Sure as anything wasnt thinking of the supporters families with the example he set on the field.

Hope Ross County enjoy his finger pointing and blaming others... that always got on my nerves.

He gave up at Parkhead in the cup, glad he has gone, he certainly worked his ticket out.

Yeah, needs to be given time. We know he's capable and just needs some confidence so the fans can help boost that.

Killie obviously heard he's coming home and resorted to signing a defender from Juventus. Looking forward to the game.

I hope this news stops all the Taxi for Tommy and is Steve Brown doing a good job nonsense posted on here in the last few weeks. The money the Chairman has made available to get the likes of O"Hallaron, Wright, Swanson, Kennedy and now May in the past seasons should be applauded certainly not critised. On the crowds we are getting I cant imagine us affording anyone better.Taking Rangers and Celtic out if the equation, there are not many if any other squads in the division I would swap ours for. Remember too that May and anyone else we might still sign is not taking into account the money spent to keep Kerr and Clark.

Great point but nobody is bigger than StJohnstone so criticism / opinions should  be voiced regarding the two most important people looking after OUR club

Whilst I'm buzzing we've signed May let's not pretend Brown and Wright's management of the transfer window has been nothing short of a shambles.

And as for investment in the team, maybe. I still see a threadbare defence and a gap in central midfield and we did just ship out another first team player to bring May in today. I'm assuming we already have a replacement for Foster but we are definitely 3 short of a big enough squad.

We have problems at Saints, we are a well run business but we're nowhere near professional enough in how we run the football club.

All that will be forgotten on a Saturday when the team runs out but just because we are a solid business it doesn't mean we shouldn't still be aiming to improve all the time on and off the park.

You don’t think we would have signed stevie if foster didn’t leave?

I thought we would have signed him last month and then earlier this month so I've no idea if we would. I've no doubt Wright's been told to balance the books though so feels like 1 in 1 out at the moment.

The Foster saga is odd though, more to that one than is being said.

There's a lot more to being Chairman than managing a budget. 

Loads of room for improvement, my concern is he does not see it and that is what hurts.

I don't know how many on here are also Twitter, but 3 hours ago Stevie posted "home time" . Now over 200 hundred replies, masses of them from dons fans. Unbelievable really, almost all positive and wishing him well. Many sad to see him go, didn't get a chance etc. Seems the only person that didn't rate him was McInnes.

I'm quite sad, so have been reading fans forums/checking for his name on Twitter over the past week.

A majority seem to have wanted him starting games ahead of Main, and are still annoyed he was dropped for Stewart last season.
