    I mean RandomGuy has made some very fair points in this argument, whereas you seem intent on bashing a kid in his first season playing first team football. As RandomGuy has pointed out players take time, Anderson being the prime example. He was a useless right back as a kid and never had any pace, who turned into our record appearance holder as a centreback, give the guy a chance. As for the continual shoehorning or Kirsten Robertson into every post, it’s getting boring. We get it, you don’t like her, but like it or not she’s not going anywhere right now, especially when the club needs as many hands as it can get to restore some normality.

    Baaa baaa! You should convert to Aberdeen. The guy has a chance to talk saints up. Put a f****** positive spin rather than negative. Should have been; ”we are delighted by the calibre of candidate. It just goes to show that the hard work is paying off as we are being rightly recognised as a great football club to work for that has had lots of success in the past ten years. Candidates know they are coming to a great club and that is why we have quality applicants.” instead we get; ”why the f*** anyone would want to manage this club is beyond me. If you are a good manager f*** knows why you have applied here. Oh aye, and one more thing, if you are applying for this job you better to be willing to give up your days off and evenings to work in the community - dinny even submit a CV unless you are willing to work overtime for free. Right! Got it, son!!”

    I start to wonder if some folk didn't watch Tommy's "leaving" interview Another relatively decent season, Ach let's blame Steve anyway eh Some peoples "agenda's" on here bore me to tears tbh. Moaning for the sake of moaning but aye it's a forum and it's all about opinions etc etc etc I do genuinely wonder sometimes reading stuff on here why some folk "support" Saints ...apart from giving them something to moan (sorry, debate) about of course

    Saints Summer 2020 Transfers & Contracts

    Muzz has been sent off once in his time at Saints so he doesn't miss a lot of games due to suspension. He is a notoriously quick healer and has had one long term injury during his time at the club (2014, when it sadly cost him a Cup Final appearance)so doesn't miss a lot of games due to injury. He has been a fantastic servant to Saints and deserves more respect than your post affords him.

    I think people are seeing what the want to see in respect of Robertson. She's been given a remit and she's just following what she's been told to do, I haven't seen anything that I've been concerned about from her to be honest.

    I have just released an album

    Hello WAPers, I am indulging in a bit of a spamming spree as I've just released my debut album Grey Hairs and Black Dogs. I started recording it last August. It's a ten-track project which details my struggles with mental health during the past six years. It's available to download and stream on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and many other digital platforms. 20% of all proceeds will be going to Samaritans. Bandcamp: https://olliewale.bandcamp.com/album/grey-hairs-and-black-dogs iTunes: https://music.apple.com/gb/artist/ollie-wale/1377941213 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3TnAcivfAeqRzqA5V2FBRs

    Season Tickets

    I’m a tad confused here, Saints have held fire as long as possible before offering Season tickets when nobody knows when we will be allowed to have fans attend. Yes, family’s will only need 1 ticket to watch the games on tv, how could you have stopped that? Same as, there is nothing to stop me inviting family and friends round to watch games. They have offered people a refund on last season for the 3 games missed and to my mind have been quite clever by not mentioning the £60 or whatever it works out as, as to many that might suddenly appeal. I am sure if they had come out with a figure certain fans would have moaned about that as well. As for the Hibs refund, you only ever had to ACTUALLY contact the club and ask them as you would any other business who owes you money.

    Naw, folk have short memories, as good as Macca has been for us and I appreciated everything he brought to our team, when Hearts signed him I was most surprised, as I felt he was past his best. Can't see him pulling on the boots in earnest (whoever he is ) , and there was no mention of it when he signed on again.

    That'll be the squad who isn't allowed to even be near each other until next week? I don't get this rush to get someone in, the squad is already in place with coaches who know them and the set ups that work. Even if a new manager has new ideas, they aren't going to be implemented immediately. Plus right now we've probably saved circa £10-15k by not having a manager which right now isn't an insignificant amount. I'd much rather the club focus on keeping us in a good, financial, healthy position and takes their time to get the right manager, than rush into things and appoint another Connelly or Stark just to appease fans who want something to happen now! This apparent need for information and action from the club immediately is ridiculous, given they're probably working with 20% of the normal staff and there's a lot more going on in Scottish football right now to devote their time in telling the fans what Liam Craig had for breakfast. Do I want a manager to have as much time with the squad as possible, sure. Is there maybe someone already lined up and agreed, but not announced, sure. Do I think the players will become amateur and rubbish, forgetting everything they know simply because there isn't someone else shouting at them, absolutely not. We could go into a new season with the squad and coaching staff we have and be fine, simply by playing the same as we did for the second half of last season.

    Season Tickets

    Saints were clear that they weren’t willing to sell season tickets to fans without knowing what product was even on offer. I’m absolutely fine with that, as others have said other clubs who have sold season tickets are now having to come up with compromises and other ways around it. Saints should now be able to offer people an exact product and not potentials.

    It is, you actively want to kick out clubs, virtually killing them off, because they're not full time. Why not just close off the top flight? Split the prize money between 12 instead of 42. Why even stop there? Cut it down to the 6 best supported sides, surely that makes the most sense financially?

    Why? Why the **** should Arbroath, one of the best sides in the second tier this season and on the verge of a play off spot and potential promotion, be denied a spot in the top two tiers until they go full time, something they cannot afford to run on their support? Its elitist pish that you expect fans of the Old Firm, or Hearts, to be spouting and I've zero idea why a St Johnstone fan is trying to force clubs out the league system based on their size, considering less than 40 years ago we ourselves were bottom of the league system, part time, and had one of the smallest supports in the Country. Theres only 20 full time clubs in Scotland anyway, bright spark, so your two leagues of 12 doesnt even add up. It annoys the **** out of me when people suggest stuff like this.

    Cagey that is old at 12. They start taking them.in significantly younger now. Think this year they will be taking in kids born in 2013and 2014. The kids are far too young and should be left to play with pals but they go in there and think they have made it. The SFA need to limit the number of kids that these clubs are allowed to take in for training at youth level. It would be a knock on effect with kids there going to other premiership clubs and some of there kids going down to academy level and kids that should be nowhere near pro youth going back to playing with pals in youth clubs. That would help these lower league clubs better than playing in their league.

    I hope that's not the plan. From what I saw of us last season we were at our best when May and Hendry were played together in a front two. It took Tommy a while to go with it but when he did it really worked. O'Halloran I hope will be much more than an impact sub. He had a bit of a stop-start season last time but I think with Wright, Kennedy and Swanson now all gone there's a big opportunity for him to return to his best and be a key player for us again.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    three out of that six? Pick any three and the man is not fit to manage a football team. I always hate the prospect of something like this happening to us. How would I react if a manager (or player) I found repellent started with us? I feel sorry for decent United fans. Interested to hear Smarmy's view on this.

    Not always, I was involved in a Court of Session case which was running out of its allocated time and facing a 6 month delay before it could be brought back to Court. To avoid this the 2 QCs agreed to restrict their closing speeches if their Lordships would then agree to sit beyond 4 pm. Their Lordships had a flooky and looked at the QCs as if one of them had just broken wind. The request was refused. It was rumoured that at least one of them had a 5 pm tee time at Muirfield!

    They're right about it being unfair though. Of course it's unfair - they've been relegated without getting to complete their season. But it's unfair on everyone. Hearts might have stayed up. Saints might have finished fifth. Sevco might have won the league. It's not as if Hearts have had to stop their season while everyone else has been allowed to carry on playing. The fact is their only proposed way out of the situation was a reconstruction that hardly anyone wanted, and as far as I can see the SPFL acted properly in putting that proposal to a vote of its members. I'm really not sure what else they could expect to happen.

    Season Tickets

    I don't think you can blame the club for wanting to protect fans? We're in a global crisis and the club have happily turned down the chance to milk fans so they arent cheated, look at Celtic, who havent made the closed door games available to season ticket holders. One has complained theyve spent £666 on a season ticket when they were asked to renew in January, and Celtic have told him he'll have to pay £100 on top of that to watch streamed games, and that he wont get a discount next season, or this season, if games are behind closed doors.

    Pretty poor show as usual in communicating with the support as mentioned above, even could gave advised people what the options were for refund of tickets like hibs ones, season ticket refunds (before anyone jumps on that I am quite happy for them to keep anything offered as not in need if it) but some folk have been hit hard financially and might want something back, but not even a mention if options, too much assumptions the support will just accept this lack of communication as they always do, but in comparison to a lot if our competitors its piss poor. At least give people options and keep them informed its not 30 years ago and no Internet,.maybe broons furloughed the comms guy!!

    They would be starting at the same level as Kinnoull, if you want to preserve the Pyramid. That's now the lowest level of the league system. Or you just say a massive **** you to every club who's fought for decades to set up the pyramid and access to the SPFL divisions, by putting a couple of youth teams straight in ahead of them all. If you take away a clubs identity, by either forcing them to accept players, or by forcing them to play a certain way, then you will kill the lower league game. The Dutch wedged B sides into their lower tiers and by all accounts its killed their second tier, which now just has a couple of teams who have kept fans as they swap between the top flight and second tier, a couple of B sides, and then you're down to clubs who have lost massive chunks of their fan base. Why is it fair to force, for an example, Brechin to either accept 6 players they dont want, and who they wont make any money on, when they might have their own young players to focus on, or force Brechin to play a certain formation? We can't view these things as a top flight club, that's just arrogant and totally disrespectful to clubs in the lower tiers. A lot of those fans dont support their club for success, its pure love for the club. You change the club and the fans leave too.
