    Still waiting on yer evidence rather than your keyboard attacks on a member of the staff at SJFC. That's what I'm no liking. As mentioned before is it in the same evidence bag as The Rangers SPFL evidence? Yer going on and on and on , on various threads. What has Kirsten done? That's all we want you to tell us. And then we can make our minds up. But for you to constantly keep this going with...…..(it appears) nothing...….. I just don't get it. Tommy left because of KR.....come on ???????????? I know nothing and maybe he didn't see eye to eye with her but still...….leave his job....that's no the Tommy we know is it? What he said in his interview is good enough for me. And he's gone but never forgotten. We stick together as one. SJFC

    I remember this well, I heard a snap and the physio was going to twist it back thinking it was ok. But I stopped him. Arm broken. Very sore too. My daughter was at the game and I went off waving to her not letting on it was broken. Great memories Roy Baines

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    Clubs should be in the top league on merit, not financial reasons. And Saints don't need them for financial reasons anyway.

    I certainly DO NOT want a refund on my season ticket. For people who have, or will be losing their employment, it is understandable if they are seeking a refund. However, I Do Wish a refund on the tickets I purchased for the Hibernian game which was scheduled for Easter Road.

Saturn and Slf 's race appear to be over at this stage.I 13th Hurdle- Abernethy Saint moves ahead of Steve McQueen & Hoodlum65 who are neck and neck. 14th Hurdle- The order is the same. 15th Hurdle- Pezza70 is back in contention, alongside Steve McQueen & Hoodlum65, with Abernethy Saint still leading. 16th Hurdle- Still Abernethy Saint up front, with Hoodlum65 dropping off the other two. 17th Hurdle- Abernethy Saint, looking full of running, is joined by Steve McQueen, who is well backed, then Pezza70, Johnny B, who is not out of it at this stage and Kinnoull Kicker,. 18th Hurdle- Abernethy Saint & Steve McQueen in front. Hoodlum65 now overtaken by Coltrane & Sleepless, who has been given a wake up call. 19th Hurdle- Same two lead. Cristo moves ahead of Coltrane, Sleepless, Hoodlum65 and Saturn. 20th Hurdle- Abernethy Saint and Steve McQueen still setting the pace, then Pezza70 & Coltrane who is looking fresh. 21st Hurdle- the leading four in the same order. 22nd Hurdle- Steve McQueen takes up the lead, followed by Pezza70, then Abernethy Saint and Coltrane. Behind them is Johnny B, and SLF (who had to have a liquid injection prior to the race.) 23rd Hurdle- Still Steve McQueen out in front, Abernethy Saint joined in 2nd place by the much fancied Coltrane. 24th Hurdle- Still the same order. 25th Hurdle- The first six are Steve McQueen, Coltrane, (1st and 2nd favourites), Abernethy Saint, Pezza70, Johnny B, and Hoodlum65 who has been given a reminder than Sixties Saintee is gunning for him. 26th Hurdle- Lead shared by Steve McQueen, Coltrane and Abernethy Saint. 27th Hurdle- Coltrane noses ahead of the other two. 28th Hurdle- The field is now in single file, Coltrane, Steve McQueen, Abernethy Saint, Pezza70, Saturn, Johnny B, Sleepless (given another wake up call), and Hoodlum65. 29th Hurdle- Hoodlum65 makes a move ahead of Saturn and behind Pezza70. 30th Hurdle- Saturn and Hoodlum65 exchange places in 5th and 6th. 31st Hurdle- Steve McQueen takes over the lead from Coltrane in 2nd, then Abernethy Saint, Hoodlum65 side by side with Pezza70. 32nd Hurdle- Coltrane overtakes Steve McQueen , Abernethy Saint clear in third and Hoodlum65 in fourth. 33rd Hurdle- Same order with Pezza70 in 5th place. 34th Hurdle - Same front 3, with Pezza70 moving ahead of Hoodlum65, with Kinnoull Kicker just behind those two. 35th Hurdle- Things hotting up , Coltrane in front, Abernethy Saint and Steve McQueen contesting 2nd place, with Hoodlum65 following. 36th Hurdle- Coltrane , who has shown in the latter part of the competition why he was favourite leads, with Steve McQueen edging Abernethy Saint for second and Hoodlum65. After and input from the stewards, Abernethy was relegated to 4th, meaning Coltrane was the worthy winner and Steve McQueen dead-heated with Hoodlum65* for 2nd. Well done Coltrane. Gee, this lockdown is taking its toll.

    I was hounded on here for saying that Kennedy is overrated! Players began to see him as the star player, and just gave him the ball every time. He began to see himself as the star player and would just dribble until he’d run out of space. Other clubs saw him as the star player and doubled up on him every time. Selling Kennedy saved our season.

    RBB - you're sounding like the WAP equivalent of The Rangers FC - where's your evidence??? Embarrassing witch hunt by a few people on here. Tommy's gone because he wanted to. That's all I read into it, in fact it's all I need to read into it. St.Johnstone FC move on, we stick together. Starting smear campaigns against employee's at the club is just ridiculous.

    League Reconstruction

    The Ann Budge document comes out with some crackers. This is not about saving Hearts but saving Scottish football. The premier League needs Hearts more than the championship In light of the increasingly uncertain times we are facing, I want to urge every Member Club to look at this proposal not as a way to save Hearts, Partick Thistle and Stranraer from relegation, but as a better way for Scottish Football to deal with the current emergency, while at the same time righting an unintended injustice. Biggest load of crap I have read in a while. 3 league's of 14 for 2 seasons top half play 36 games but 8 play 40. Possible play off between 5 th 6th and 7th for a euro spot for a new competition that's not started yet. I suppose the main caveat for the position after 2 years will be as long as hearts are not getting relegated.

    Naw no having that the reason i said what I did was that hearts were the shite team o the season and deserve to go down, and the rich should be helping the poorer clubs out. You wont be on the barricades wae me just yet.

    New Manager

    We could end up making no matchday income next season as theres a real chance every game has to be played behind closed doors. You can talk about German football returning, but the amount of money they're spending to get games on is astronomical. They hire out an entire hotel for one squad, who all stay in separate rooms. They then hire multiple buses to get the squad to the game so they can keep their distance. Multiple tests are done before and after the game (an EFL League Two chairman claims it costs £18k per match if they do it, not sure if that's just one test or multiple). Theres a real chance Scottish football cant start up again until January. We have a solid squad just now who could see us avoiding relegation over a season, surely people see that you cant spend a fortune this Summer if you dont need to? You cant be reckless when theres no guaranteed income.

    Surely despite the current pandemic, it is imperative to appoint a manager sooner rather than later? It has been well documented that it wasn’t a case of if TW moved on but rather when, so I’d like to think our club would have been proactive and have had some kind of contingency plan in place? I feel Saints are currently missing a trick not having an appointment in place, everyday we are reading about another professional out of contract. I realise most clubs are in the same boat not knowing what/when things are going to happen so you don’t want it being a double whammy not having a manager too. No point trying to save a few quid with a late appointment when you end up missing some good signings?

    Wow!! Thanks so much!! Much like Saints, my form improved greatly in the second half of the season! That was my second winners medal ... hopefully it's not potentially discredited like the present 9 in a row champions ... or perhaps there are impending lawsuits contesting the result out there.... Anyway, many thanks to Steve for all the amazing hard work, and also to everyone who took part!! Here's to (hopefully) next season and another great contest!! Cheers!!

    Season 2019/20.

    Worth noting at this stage that just three months ago our chairman said: "We went for it at the start of the season - we thought we could get into the top six and have a cup run but we just haven't performed and that leaves a huge financial gap and concerns." Now we've finished in the top six and we also reached the Scottish Cup quarter-final. Never, ever doubt Tommy Wright.

    Fair enough to ask the question, but I dare say they felt that TW'S mind was made up. We all know he's a stubborn codger, and a decision that he'd obviously been thinking about for a while. I don't think Saints could've persuaded him in any way. The debate will no doubt rumble on, and that irks me somewhat. I'd far rather look forward, and whoever gets the gig has big shoes to fill. Let's hope if future results don't go his way, there's not a chorus of "hate KR, it's her fault Tommy left". There's no proof! Remember in November, a lot of ppl were questioning TW. I think TW felt he'd taken the club as far as he could and needed a break. I think the time was right for TW to leave. Head held high, held in highest esteem by the fans.

    Best manager we have ever had, yesterday was a very sad day, still not sunk in. I would love us all to get a chance to show our appreciation from the stands in Perth. A testimonial match. Perhaps against the Arabs would be a fitting occasion for an outpouring of love for Tommy. Thanks for everything Tommy, would love to see you in the dugout one last time.

    Just in the way we won the cup, the stars aligned, and I pretty much feel the same with TW’s departure. Most reasons that have been mentioned go on at other clubs, chairman holding tight purse strings etc, I do think it was crass of Preston to make insinuations regarding why he left. You either tell the whole truth or just shut up. I think the reasons are probably more mundane and it has been death by a thousand pinpricks. I’m sure history will eventually show that as much as it pains me to say it.. TW left at the right time. How many managers can leave a club a hero, and be able to return at some point an even bigger one! Will things be the same again? Probably not, but folk adjust... I won’t stop following Saints just because of a change of manager... TW thanks for the CUP, can die happy

    Again. The manager himself has said this has been in his plans for years now, to leave when he felt the time was right and the squad was strong enough. I can understand why people are desperate to find a deeper reason, or a scapegoat, but to me it's pointless and does nothing but harm the club.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    Given he’s been back in Ireland for approaching 2 months now with his family and not on his own, you’ve got to imagine he’s just realised he’s not getting any younger and is wanting to spend more time with them in his home. Plus he’s seen the way things are going in Scottish football, budget cuts and even more tightening of purse strings are inevitable. Especially with our board and thought enough is enough. Not sure anyone actually thought this day would come, but we’ve had 7 glorious years of the man which is about 5 more than we should have had. He’ll always be welcome in Perth and can leave head held high knowing he’s left us in a brilliant position. Good luck whoever has to replace arguably our greatest ever manager.

    They need to move swiftly if the other clubs are going to swallow this, but they’re liable to be hawkish on the issue, or just duck it altogether. I think she’s actually making a bit of a tit of herself. At the end of the day, there’s very unlikely to be anything for her to crow about.

    Clubs need at least 3 hours per game for warm up, play the game, warm down etc and the changing facilities, dug outs etc need cleaning after every match so can’t see that working.

    I’m with you ... I agree she does not need anymore airtime... my point being that the extra income from playing Hearts would have helped a little ... particularly if we are going down the route of games broadcast online... there are a lot of Hearts fans that would pay to see closed door games of which saints would get a cut. The Scottish game is in crisis... teams need as much money as they can. Hearts would have helped. However, for many other reasons... they should go down in my opinion.

    League Reconstruction

    Her desperation levels are starting to become an embarrassment to Hearts now. This bit in particular is almost Sevco-esque in its arrogance: "Hearts not being in the Premier League at this time would seriously limit our ability to help Scottish football. In short, the Premiership needs Hearts more than the Championship does." There was me thinking teams got relegated for being bottom of the league, but apparently national "need" now has to be considered? This is like the armageddon nonsense all over again. She's actually managed to make her proposal worse, too. Why should the whole league structure be blown apart, just for two years? At the end of those two years there will be a huge upheaval with extra clubs getting relegated and yet more moaning. And what if one of those clubs still ends up being Hearts? Will she tell us again that Hearts can't go down because the stupidly-named Premiership "needs" them? I sincerely hope Saints, and as many other clubs as possible, give this a big fat no.

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    To be fair she knew how to run an IT company. Also, I'm told by one or two people who know her that she is a very nice person. She's a football fan who tried to dig Hearts out of a hole. Unfortunately, having coughed up the required bawbees, she made one huge mistake and handed the shovel to one Craig Levein! She is now the latest in a long line of fans who have proved that the way to make a small fortune out of Scottish football is to start with a large one.

    For me, the man that stands out is John Hughes. He's only managed 2 clubs of a similar size to Saints and was the most successful Falkirk manager in living memory and won Caley a trophy. He plays great football too and while winning is more important, better football wouldn't be bad to see.

    Steven Anderson - An Appreciation

    When the word LEGEND is used it's usually in some biased west coast rag to describe an average player who has ever pulled on a shirt of the ugly sisters. LEGEND:- Someone famous and admired usually because of their ability in a particular field. Steven Anderson is a guy who can truly add the word LEGEND after his name.

    On his day there were few better attacking players than Danny. Unfortunately for various reasons these days are gone. Hopefully he can get a decent club & show what he can do ,but not against us. I think he needs regular football to take him to a different place. Tommy was good to him over his times with us & made allowances for his various problem with his mental heath,death of his best pal & his court case. Good luck for the future Danny & thanks for all the good times.

    Pitch

    Kilmarnock only put a plastic pitch in so they could hire it out, and save money by training there instead of renting facilities. We obviously dont have that need with the astro pitch and training pitch already at McDiarmid. Rumours of us going that route are just more of this bizarre push to try and get Saints fans turning on both the club and Kirsten Robertson, and I've no idea why people are doing that.

    Gutted, the best manager I'll ever see Saints have. Sounds like it's been a long considered decision, and hes walked away from football for a spell in the past to focus on his personal life, just hope everything there is fine. The club couldnt have refused to let him leave if he wanted to, even for compensation, hes done too much for us all.
