    Half Time at Easter Road

    As many of you will have seen on St Johnstone’s Facebook page my 5 year old nephew Ryan done a lap around the Easter Road pitch at half time on Sunday He is raising money for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity who have looked after him since he was born and will look after him in the future He was supposed to run 1km in the junior Edinburgh marathon last year but because of the lockdowns it got cancelled a couple of times so it was arranged that he could do it at Easter Road In the end he ended up walking around instead of running as he was giving everyone high-fives around the pitch and people were handing him money! The whole family would like to say a massive thank you to all the St Johnstone fans who clapped him as he passed the away section and handed money to him. Between both sets of fans he walked away with £177. He’s been high as a kite ever since We’d also like to thank St Johnstone Football Club who advertised his fundraiser on Monday and to everyone who has donated online since Edited by Mod to add donation link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/weeryankerr

    Absolutely mad. The in form keeper in scotland. Still the right side of 30(just). Could have years ahead of him as a Scotland keeper, and yet they go for a mediocre rangers second/third choice. What a disgrace.

    Yep, and if you go back and watch the Saints v Dundee game from 1999 you'll hear that there was racial abuse aimed at Miguel Simao every time he touched the ball. However - with apologies for the cliche - two wrongs don't make a right. I don't want to hear footballers being subjected to personal abuse at matches. We can't say "the other team's fans have done it (or done it worse), so it's OK for us to do it". And we can't say "that's just the way football fans are." We are the fans. If we want to change these things, it's up to all of us collectively to change them. For me, the stuff being aimed at Leigh Griffiths during that match was unacceptable. And it's not the only unacceptable thing I've heard from Saints fans at matches. I'd like for us to be much better than this.

    I was disgusted at Pittodrie some seasons back when a small number of our fans were singing about Jamie Langfield's wife. That was vile. As for abuse directed towards Alan Main or Leigh Griffiths, that's out of order, whether 1999 or 2021. We take one aspect of a person's character, magnify it out of all proportion and write them off accordingly. It's hardly civilised and can't be written off as banter or merited. 48 years you've won *%€$ all. Double cup winners, you'll never sing that. That's good stuff. The personal abuse isn't. I'd also like us to be much better than this.

    I've just watched the highlights for the first time and I'm genuinely baffled by how MacPherson is being given the blame. First goal: Ambrose fails to stop the cross from the right. MacPherson is one of the players in the box who doesn't manage to get a tackle in, but so is Rooney. None of the defenders cover themselves in glory for this one. Second goal: MacPherson passes a perfectly acceptable ball back to Craig. Craig then passes it back to Clark. The goal then comes from a mix-up between Clark and McCart. How is MacPherson to blame for that? Third goal: MacPherson is tracking his man back into the box as the goal is scored. His man isn't the one who scores. Personally think MacPherson has looked pretty promising in both of his performances so far. He rarely seems to lose the ball, and his corners are looking like an upgrade on what we've had previously. We actually created a couple of goalscoring opportunities from MacPherson's corners (Craig's lob that hit the bar and Ambrose's header that went just over), which is a nice change from what we usually do!

    Griffiths is a sad sad person who seems to have issues and who, so far as I can tell, does absolutely nothing to help himself. He knew exactly what he was doing when he walked over to kick that flare towards the stand, a view shared by a number of Dundee fans who now want to see the back of him. He is on a slippery slope and it is not going to be pleasant to watch his demise, The guy who threw the flare just did something daft in the heat of the moment but to me it was very unpleasant to hear a group of Saints' fans hurling vile abuse at Griffiths which had nothing to do with football. We should leave that sort of thing to the fans of clubs who are often mocked on here for just that sort of behaviour.

    All this takeover business at Newcastle makes you think about Saints and the achievements of the club. I know we all moan a bit about the budget at Saints but not that it would happen but I dont think I would like a big investor coming in, I like the locally owned aspect of the club. It makes the achievements all the better. We didnt buy the 2 cups last season, hard work, belief and probably a bit of luck.

    He ran all the way from the centre circle to kick it into the stand. Could have caused serious injury & probably should have been arrested. Mind you the moron that threw the flairs should have been arrested as well.

    Kits 21/22

    My favourite subject. Personally I'm not really fussed about whether or not we have a 'custom kit'. My preference is always a fairly simple blue shirt, white shorts, and white socks of course - if you look here you'll see we haven't had that since 1980 (41 years ago!). Just once I'd love for us to get a blue shirt that doesn't have loads of unnecessary white or yellow flashes and lines and stripes all over it. I still say that for this season we should have gone with a modern remake of this design to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our 1971/72 European run... My favourite from more recent years is the 2014 Cup Final kit, or the one we wore during the 2013/14 season. Both fairly simple designs without too much going on. I also really liked our 2003/04 kit, even though it reminds me of one of the least enjoyable seasons I've ever endured. I agree with you when it comes to away kits, though. We should go crazy with the away kit - do something completely out there that gets noticed. That's why people still talk about the teal and magenta kit. The further from boring white or yellow the better, at least for a couple of years.

    I see the media are hyping Hibs up again saying what a tall order it will be for Saints. Just like the four tall orders last season then.

    I wonder if we might see a May-Vertainen partnership tried out within the next couple of fixtures. Possibly not at Easter Road where I'd imagine we'll be quite cautious, but potentially in the game after that which is Dundee at home. Just starting to feel that Kane and Middleton could perhaps do with a break, and we have plenty of alternative options now.

    Quite similar to the Aberdeen game really, in that we really struggled for a lot of the game, but weathered the storm and went on to win it. To me that shows that the huge amount of character we displayed last season is very much still there. Have to admit it's crossed my mind of late that the football we're playing this season is nowhere near as good to watch as it was when we hit our stride last season - but hey, I'll take winning games over nice football any day of the week. And I think these results will breed confidence which should lead to better all-round performances. For me Crawford has been looking better each time he's played, and he really seems to be bringing some new qualities to our midfield that we didn't previously have. There's a much stronger link between our midfield and attack when he plays, and some of his long-range passing is really impressive. At this stage I think he's looking like a cracking signing. Shout out for MOH too who I thought put in a great shift at RWB when he came on. Middleton does seem to have gone off the boil slightly and personally I'd be looking to rest him for the Hibs game and use him as an impact sub (which we know he does very well). It's not as if we don't have options up front.

    Zander

    I don't think the reaction is just about this one instance of Zander being left out. It's about year after year of seeing top-performing Saints players being left out. You're maybe right about Kelly v Clark being a toss-up, but why does it always have to be the St Johnstone player who loses the toss-up? I have absolutely no doubt that there's a long-running unconscious bias against St Johnstone players that stretches back through numerous Scotland managers. It comes from exactly the same place as "Perth's not a football town" and "St Johnstone are in a relegation battle every season".

    I could see your point if he'd been there for six months, but it's only been a few weeks. He's going to have to prove he's better than their starters, just like Vertainen is having to do here, for example. I find it really strange that anyone would have expected him to walk straight into their starting line-up. I've no idea what the situation is with Christie but he's a far more experienced player than McCann, and perhaps he was arriving at Bournemouth at a time where they desperately needed someone in his position.

    We can however be a breeding ground for Canada, Malta, NI and any other forward thinking nation that can genetically tie a player from Saints to their nation! **Edit** Zander of course is Greek, tying back to Alexander the Great, and literally means defender of men. He'd have to oust Odysseas Vlachodimos though, but a solid number 2.

    The only surprise is that fans are surprised that Zander has been dropped for a fifth rated keeper at Rangers who would have been sent off in his last 2 games if he was playing for any other club.

    Referees getting it wrong is part of the fun, it adds extra spice to the game. I think VAR is one of the worst things that has happened to football in recent years. It's another way of separating the 'top leagues' from the lower ones, and turns the game - with all its mistakes and idiosyncrasies - into a science, bland and boring.

    Is this the guy who plays for the same team where almost an entire stand of their supporters used to bellow “Alan Main, alki dad!!” on loop for 45 minutes every single time the teams met for his entire career. Now that is “incessant”. Leigh Griffiths has strutted around Scottish football for the last 10 years acting like Bertie Big Potatoes and loves to give a bit back to fans. Leigh Griffiths, married with children, was also allegedly texting a young girl asking her to send him pictures. Leigh Griffiths was also allegedly filmed a few years ago singing about a player in the same league from the Czech Republic being a f****** rufugee. Leigh Griffiths was also allegedly pictured standing above the crowd waving a tri-coloured Republic of Ireland flag at a football match. (Still no idea why Scottish football tolerates Union Jacks, Ulster and Republic of Ireland flags at a football match never mind a professional in that league waving it). Leigh Griffiths also, on numerous occasions, ran the length of the pitch to tie a Celtic scarf to goalposts at Ibrox in order to antagonise the opposition. Leigh Griffiths was also filmed running half the length of a pitch, before booting a smoke bomb into a crowded stand of supporters. Forgive me if I don’t have a lot of sympathy for people singing songs taking the pi** out of the guy. If that abuse were to become “incessant” and a sinister agenda against the guy were to emerge, I would not condone that whatsoever, however, at the moment it appears it’s football fans being football fans and involving a guy who is more than capable of stoking the fire when it suits him.

    you make an Important point about the incessant abuse towards LG, for several consecutive matches now there appears to be people in the stands who will not be happy till the guy tops himself. We all enjoy a bit of witty banter but IMO this is now becoming something else. I think you are being very generous to the individual who threw the flare though, never understand why a fan would put their own club in trouble, for what?
