Vihmann looked so badly off pace today even for the few minutes he played, I’m beginning to wonder what the manager ever saw in him. Can we cut his loan short?

He looked very very scared whenever the ball came near him. I've seen 13 year olds with far more composure, that's surely a confidence thing.

Did it really matter what the laddie did on Saturday many had already made their minds up before he even cam eon that he was shite. 

Think he only made one error when he came on when he headered the ball instead of taking it down but overall he managed to get up to the pace of the match pretty well. Certainly not easy comeing on in that position for the last 10 mins of a game.

Of course it mattered, we could've lost the game. He's a young new player settling in you would expect him to have his raw moments. We all want him to do well, it's up to him to actually do that though. The time you're on about you could actually see the fear in his eyes :lol:

Maybe he had just spotted your face in the visiting end. Enough to make anybody look scared:o

I know for a fact that Saints were made aware of Lyndon Dyke’s a couple of years ago and never followed up.

Another couple of million missed when he gets his next move?

Welcome back sasha, what you going to blame Saints for this week?

Oh I see you've already started....

 

 

 

Got to love bitter parents :lol:

When exactly?

Bearing in mind he only moved to Scotland 3 years ago and before then had never played professional football.

Just sounds like absolute shite, to be frank.

Saints have been made aware of several players throughout the years but for various reasons it wasn't followed up

It happens 

Paul Sturock(To small) 

Ray Stewart 

Lawrence Shankland to name 3 but there will be loads 

It's a mute point 

Dykes is pish as well

Exactly. 

 

Pretty sure we also missed out on Andy Robertson. 

Barry Ferguson as well.

That's just how it goes.

I vaguely remember us being close to signing Leigh Griffiths at one point a long time ago as well.

What has Dykes actually done that makes it so disastrous that he doesn't play for us? He's only played a handful of Premiership games as far as I can see.

Every club misses out on signing players. You can't sign everyone. There will be other clubs out there who could have signed Wright, Kennedy and MOH but didn't.

Interestingly Wallace Duffy has said he isn't much of a right back :laugh:

https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/st-johnstone/994661/st-johnstones-wallace-duffy-hoping-to-continue-in-preferred-position-at-heart-of-the-defence/

Duffy said: “I was a centre-half all through my youth and then I have only played a year or two at right-back.

“Being back at centre-half, it was different but I liked it and it’s what I prefer. I felt more comfortable there.

“I am not much of an attacker for a right-back these days.

“You need to be up and down, crossing and dribbling, things like that.

“I don’t think that’s particularly my game but I have tried to learn.”

 

Does Tommy need another right back now?

We may have to wait to the end of the season. He will not resign at the winter window if we are not clear of relegation or he gets a relegation release clause inserted. Drey Wright may be in the same situation.

"St Johnstone hope to extend Matty Kennedy's stay at McDiarmid Park beyond the end of this season."

 

We will be lucky if he does sign on again.

It is one of these where the players agent will be telling him to hold and he can get more later. What he has to consider is that he has already travelled down south and failed come back to saints and says he is happy now near his family and getting international recognition. Hopefully a contract where the player gets a percentage of any transfer fee will work for him at Saints.

It's down to agents. They have a living to make & don't give a shit about their players.

I fear pre contracts in January.

Sadly I think any of Hearts, Hibs or Aberdeen would be very happy to take Kennedy off our hands - I can't see him being an easy one to keep hold of, especially if we're still near the bottom of the league when we hit January.
