  1. Past hour
  2. Will it not be available through saints tv? If you are paying for season ticket to get it then surely you would not also have to pay for sky sports. Seems a great idea but what about away games?
  3. That's what I wondered. Living in Yorkshire, a ST is no use to me. But a virtual ST might be. (Except I don't have Sky...)

    New Manager

    It may be his plans were too ambitious for them. There's lots of reasons why you don't appoint people.
  5. Biggest question is, will this only be open to ST holders in the normal sense? There must be a huge market of folk who can’t afford a traditional ST, and/or can’t easily get to games. I’m guessing Sky are concerned about losing their own viewers, but it’s only for a few months, surely!

    New Manager

    Another way of looking at it could be that those clubs aren't as good at choosing managers as Saints are, so maybe they went for the wrong candidates.

    New Manager

    I'm sure there's another one there as well......East Fife maybe.

    New Manager

    He was interviewed for the Raith and Morton jobs - failed to get them - why would he be good enough for.us then ? Yeah forgot the cheap option.
  12. Saw him play for Dundee... he was rank!!
  13. Note that Calvin Miller freed by Ce!tic is open to all offers. Yet to prove his fitness after coming back from ACL injury. 22 y.o. Anyone seen him play?

    New Manager

    From reading various quotes from Cleland I'm not sure he actually wants the job - he certainly hasn't been publicly pitching himself for it. I do think that he's come across pretty well during this period though. Personally I wouldn't object to him being kept in the role on a trial basis for a bit longer to see how things go - perhaps an arrangement that lasts up until January for example, just like a few of the players have been given. I don't really see any huge rush to bring someone else in, given the current circumstances.

    Didn't do us any harm when Lomas left.
  16. Aye the cheap option

    New Manager

    Think they'll announce new Manager when the players are due back. Also think it will be Cleland, as he knows the players and formations that have been tried and tested. Been at the Club since 2008 , been caretaker manager twice and knows the ins and outs of the club. He must be doing something right to be at the Club for 12 years, or Broon would have had him oot.

    New Manager

    We need a manger sooner than later. He is only person who knows the preferred formation which he will want to play. Therefore he should be only person selecting new players for his squad. ie if 3 at the back another centre back to cove Kerr Gordon and McCart, if wingers another winger to cover MOH and Spooney. There are players which have been released that can fill these rolls. And these are only 2 examples. If we allow Cleland and Kirsten to choose the new players; I will put 2 and 2 together and say Cleland has the job as they would be selecting for his preferred formation. Let's get the finger out and appoint a new manager, we have had long enough to find one. This is not like waiting until the last minute to bring in a new player, this is the man who will mould and prepare the team for the start of the season. When the players are back the new manager should be there to meet them and start working on his formation and tactics.
  19. That’s exactly what I assumed we would do, but here, the idea of temporary reconstruction got lost in criticism of reconstruction in general. A temporary, emergency reconstruction is NOT reconstruction. And for all that it’s funny as fek Hearts are going down, why put themselves through that hassle? Just go to 14 for a year. I still think it’s possible that’s what they might end up doing, for the sake of peace. My gut feeling is clubs won’t go bust in any numbers, but it’s still possible that major, permanent reconstruction might have to happen because of that, meaning that all the recent blather and angst about temporary, emergency reconstruction being A Terrible Thing has been a complete waste of time.
  20. Here in Cyprus they have gone for temporary reconstruction. The football season in Cyprus has been cancelled and the current league positions stand. Their league system is similar to Scotland with a split. There will be no relegation and 2 teams promoted. Season 20-21 Play each other twice not split. 3 teams relegated and 1 promoted. Season 21-22 back to normal format.
  21. Yesterday
  22. Think the rule for registration of kit has a clause in it that says by June 1 or a date that is advised by the board. Suspect a few clubs will be up against the wire. With Saints pitch teamwear are still closed according to their website and from their web they have the management of the retail and kit design management for saints.
  23. Wait so any player that has a career is classed as a journeyman. Utter bollocks, the guys making a living and the fact he’s had 2 clubs by 25 makes him less of a journeyman than thousands of players.
  24. He's doing it. Next stop probably china. After a few clubs.
  25. In what way was Wright a journeyman? Mid 20’s and he’d been a Colchester for years.
