    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

    Player of year.

    A big shout out to much maligned spoony. he really stepped up to the plate when the going was tough thus season. He will never win any player of the year but I don’t think we can underestimate how important he was this season. And that’s why Tommy keeps him in the team. Even when he is not playing well he never hides, always shows for the ball. l am not him or his dad! and he exasperates next at times but just thought he was worth a mention.

    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.

    Round 1. It was SLF that got his nose to front, only to be overtaken by Saturn & Hoodlum65 at the 2nd hurdle. 3rd Hurdle- sees Saturn joined by 541ntees & Pezza70. 4th Hurdle- Pezza70 takes it on his own & remains ahead thru' the league cup, till the 8th hurdle. 9th Hurdle- Hoodlum65 moves into the lead, closely followed by Pezza70, then comes 541ntees. 10th Hurdle- Hoodlum retains the lead with 2nd favourite Steve McQueen taking closer order in second place and Abernethy Saint joining Pezza70 in 3rd. 11th Hurdle- Steve McQueen joins Hoodlum65 in front. 12th Hurdle- Abernethy Saint decides to accompany Steve McQueen in the lead, with Hoodlum65, Kinnoull Kicker who makes his move, Johnny B, Pezza70, 541ntees, then the Favourite Coltrane, keeping an eye on the leaders.. 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.

    As others have said, given the choice I’d have kept Wright purely for entertainment value, some of his flicks and tricks were superb and his work rate was excellent. However, his output in terms of stats was non-existent and isn’t exactly a loss. It may be that he’s replaced by a less exciting player, but one who puts the ball in the net every so often and as such contributes more to the team. Did I like Drey Wright, absolutely I’d go as far as saying I’m possibly one of his biggest fans and I’ll be sad to see him go, but in this instance saints decision and stance is very much justified. All of this speculation about offering a new deal and lambasting the board is very amusing. Tommy Wright stated ages ago that they were trying to open talks with Wright's agent who wouldn't speak with them. This offer to him 48 hours before his deal runs out sounds like saints saying "here take it or leave it" as he and his agent had been unwilling to compromise or agree prior. Lets face it, his stats put don't put him anywhere near the top of our wage budget and in a way I'm glad he's going as it'll mean a fairer spread of the wages throughout the squad. As I said previously I'd have loved to have kept him, but not at the wage he wanted. These are unprecedented times for football as a whole, you just need to look at the likes of Livingston losing their best player for nothing in Lawless, even Celtic are releasing guys who'd I'm sure they'd have held onto if non of this had happened. Scottish football is going to be a very different place next year and despite not having a manager we pretty much have a full squad capable of winning games, plenty of other teams cannot say that.

    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.

    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!!

Congratulations and well done to Coltrane and commiserations to Abernethy, the perennial bridesmaid. Hoodie - think you would have got there had it not been for the distracting tactics of Sixties!

    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.

    In a time where everybody is working from home, the vast majority of St Johnstone staff are being furloughed and are not allowed to work, let's not mention the global pandemic and frankly more pressing concerns for the club, such as surviving all this. You'll forgive me for telling you to get a grip and some perspective, the fact they're not updating you every minute of every day should be the least of your worries. If you're a St Johnstone fan, you'll be thankful you still have a club after this, as a lot of fans possibly wont be able to say that. Now give it a rest and deal with the fact there's other things going on at the club right now and a press release every day isn't going to happen! There's bigger things at play that telling you each and every detail from the club.

    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.

    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.

    Might have had a bit of sympathy with Hearts given their position if. Budge hadn't threatened legal action. Budge hadn't slagged of every club & their supporters. Hadn't been so crap. Had got rid of Levein. Had made an effort against StMirren in their final game where a win would have kept them up. Bye Bye Scotland's yo yo club.

    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.

    Do not get that Bye Bye. If Tommy requested that his contract be terminated then an employer is under no obligation to give said employee a settlement. They may have agreed that he did not have to serve a notice period under his contract of employment and could leave immediately. If Saints wanted to they could have refused the request to terminate and held him to his contract and then got compensation if and when he is appointed Northern Ireland manager. Think the outcome shows the respect on both sided for each other that a parting of the ways was agreed and I suspect no settlement made or requested from either side.

    My narrative is that TW was struggling living away from his wife for the past decade, and the contract he signed two years ago was agreed by all parties to be his last one. His initial intention wouldve been to rebuild the squad, and then leave at the end of the deal, but him and Brown had an agreement he could walk at any point if TW felt it was time for him to go. The combination of how stressful this season was, and him getting the opportunity to live at home for a few months, led to him deciding now, with the squad in a strong position and the new season potentially a year away, was the best moment to hand over the reigns. That's what I believe. And of course finances will be "squeezed", what a ridiculous criticism that'll be considering nobody has any clue when football will restart and clubs have already gone 2 months without income.
