    I'm not really bothered how many appearances they've had. Stevie May hadn't exactly played a lot of games before the start of last season for St Johnstone.

    Your defence of Levein is blind, whatever you want to claim. The qualifying group we had for the World Cup should at least have allowed us to be competitive, but thanks to his poor management we were out of contention before we were halfway through. Doesn't matter what his record as a club manager is - as Scotland manager he was terrible. Your use of Ferguson's situation is pointless - this is not 1989 and if Ferguson had been Man Utd manager in this day and age, then he WOULD have been sacked, I've no doubt about that. As for Garry Kenneth, I was being a touch tongue in cheek saying that you talked him up as much as Gauld, but you certainly defended him plenty - one of your defences being that Saints fans had a poor opinion of him because he didn't perform against us. Kenneth benefited from having Levein's support, because I'm convinced no other manager would have allowed him near a Scotland shirt. You ask for evidence for other's points - can you provide evidence of wee Ryan sitting in his house night after night poring over books and studying the game? Fair play to him if he does - my point was merely that he is not the only player who works on improving his game. There have also been rumours that he enjoys a night on the beer with his mate, but as I have no evidence of this, I won't be paying too much attention to it either - after all what young lad doesn't? I'm not trying to compare him and May as players, merely pointing out that Stevie clearly works hard at improving his game as well. I'm not belittling Gauld as being no more than a prospect - I'm pointing out that he is a prospect with lots of potential. He hasn't achieved anything in the game yet, so how can he be described as more than a prospect? Your own manager didn't have enough faith to start him on the Cup Final - that is FACT, whether you want to accept it or not. I genuinely hope that the guy has a great career, god knows we could do with a Scottish player pushing on and becoming genuinely world class, however he has a long way to go to achieve that. I do not have a hatred for all things Dundee United. I have a hatred for Jackie MacNamara, I'll admit to that. That is purely based on his complete inabilty to lose with any form of grace. I don't particularly enjoy your condescending attitude to Saints, but as I don't know you personally, I wouldn't judge you on that. None of this amounts to a hatred of Dundee United.

    Lets not kid ourselves on by even remotely defending that strikerless formation for Scotland. All the teams you named had real quality attacking players. Scotland absolutely did not. The fact Levein didn't realise that was an indication of how poor a manger he was. He was also pig headed, stubborn and narcissistic. Compare him to Strachan.

    In all honesty, Barossa Street club isn't the best advert for St Johnstone these days, I found it very dark and grubby last time I was in there, 16th May. The weather on the 24th I'd imagine will be bright and sunny, drinking outdoors is the best bet, St Johns square has plenty of bars round it, I'd recommend that area.

    Travelling Through Scotland

    What sort of things are you interested in seeing/doing? I'd recommend a trip to Speyside where you can see lots of whisky distilleries, Elgin or Dufftown is a good base for this. I did a 4 day trip earlier this year,using public transport to get around. If you would like more information on this let me know. I'd also recommend heading to the west coast where the scenery is amazing. My favourite area is around Mallaig and Arisaig. Loch Lomond is definitely worth a visit as well with nice scenery and walks. I'd say spend as little time in the cities and more in the countryside.

    So...we already have a decent squad.....but the ability to make decisions on whether or not to strengthen it should be able to be made by the manager knowing what budget he has available.....other clubs do, and I am pretty sure that their financial picture is a lot more complicated than ours

    May was untested at this level last season. Kane scored 10 goals for a part time team in half a season, I don't thinks a gamble to have him near the first team this season.

    we have got 20 senior players on the books, many of them have been here for a while and are on good money for a club of Saints size. No way we could afford Dunne, Craig and Goodwille as well as offering May increased terms.

    If anyone was in Goodwillie's boots you would take the offer from Aberdeen even if it was less money than Saints. The player cannot wait for the unknown to be told in a week's time "sorry son there is no money". I woudl imagien theefore that he will be signing for Aberdeen within 24 hours. I find the whole unknown budget hard to digest. We no longer have the wages of Wee Nigel, the jumping giant, Paddy and Dunne. Mmmhhhh. Increase in season ticket sales plus Scottish cup revenue. Maybe we are just holding off to sign Sneijder and Messi. Good squad at the moment, but we should always strive to improve.

    Would like the game to be all ticket from a purely selfish point of view. Travelling from a fair distance to meet up with the Highland Saints minibus at Dalwhinnie. All ticket would mean leaving home at a reasonable time & sitting as a group. The experience of the Rosenborg & Minsk games would suggest that if its pay at the gate we will have to leave early & the group will end up scattered all over the ground.

    Yes I was being sarcastic! Or at least trying to be. Yeah we've got this good player training with us and he wants to sign for us and some of the fans will be pretty excited by him but..... We can't offer him a contract Even though our season starts in 2 weeks. It's so frustrating how can other teams have budgets sorted but we can't

    Unlike others I'm not dissapointed in this. Maclean and May are our two starters and I don't see where Goodwillie could play in the team unless he was been signed as a back up. I'd rather Kane as our reserve striker and spent Goodwillie's wage on a quality centre midfielder.

    Agreed but... They will be regarded by the bears as a potential major scalp and many will 'pony up' the reddies which is what sevco desperately needs. Anybody else think it's no coincidence that sevco have hertz and hibz at home in their first few league games.

    The World Cup

    Would love Costa Rica to win tonight. However, all games are going to form. Lost lots on silly tennis bets. So have put all profits, and £50 of capital, on various Holland to win bets. Will either be £50 down, or quite happy tonight. My hedge bet is getting outside of a bottle of co-op's (surprisingly decent) whisky. I say again, what a great world cup. Understandably, they're all playing a bit more conservatively, and the excitement level has gone down a bit. But hey, beats the SPL on a rainy Saturday......

    Why does everyone feel the need to compare players all the time when a young Scottish player moves on? Gauld is a technician on the pitch with vision. May is a great finisher that makes good runs and asks physical questions of defenders..... Let's just hope they both play at a higher level than Scottish football for most of their career and link up to fire Scotland to major competitions.

    What Price Stevie May

    What is this obsession with selling Stevie? He has only played one full season for Saints and it appears everybody including the Chairman wants to sell him - why? He was pivotal in a very successful season - has probably generated more than his projected transfer fee in one season for the club (cup runs/cup winner's money and league position bonus) - if Peterborough had come up with the money he would have probably gone for a reported £300k - that would have been a good deal What is his speculated £1m transfer fee actually going to do for the club? - Saints do not appear to be in financial trouble and assuming Saints want to have some sort of continuing success, then we are going to have to replace him - at what price? or are we going to do the same with the likes of Chris Kane (if he is as successful). Above all Stevie has reportedly never asked for a transfer, wants to play for the club, is a local hero and all Saints appear to want to do is cash in on him ASAP. Give him an acceptable 3 year contract - he's worth it - and if he does move on Saints will still benefit. FFS let's have some ambition - tell the world Stevie is NOT for sale - he has a job to do and wants to do, at the club Rant over No doubt this will generate the usual, - stop moaning - we won a cup - we are a family club - etc nonsense

    Stevie May is a classic English centre-forward?? Stevie May is Scottish mate I'm not sure what your point is re Gauld being a football afficianado who studies and watches games. There can be little doubt about Stevie May's commitment and willingness to learn and improve all aspects of his game, including physically, where he is miles ahead of Gauld. Gauld is an excellent prospect, of that there is no doubt. However, he has a long, long way to go to reach his potential and a coach at Tannadice is hardly going to be objective and impartial when discussing the merits of a United youngster now, is he? I firmly believe Gauld will have a very good career, but to suggest that he is anymore than a promising youngster just now is just wrong, let's not forget that wee Jackie didn't have faith in him for the Final. Also forgive me for taking your views on people with United connections with a large pinch of salt following your blind defence of Levein, when it was obvious he was making a pig's ear of the Scotland job. And let's not forget the last player you talked up like this was a certain Garry Kenneth - where's he now?

    Scottish Cup Display & Presentation

    Roddy and athol took the cup to the Grammar school. Every young person who waned the photo of the cup had to go to the stand and it was full and over flowing. They waited patiently until everyone and their dug got a photo. They even waited until I ran over to Stjohns and pulled my 2 out of nursery and school for their chance of a photo with cup.. On seeing these photos my father in law asked if I could arrange for him to get his photo. After a couple of emails back and forward to Paul we came to a suitable time. On Monday morning we went up and it took us ten minutes to get from car park into ground. He is of extremely ill health and couldn't breath. Paul took the cup out into the stadium. They both chatted for about 10 minutes. He talked about his time travelling all over to support saints with his mate jimmy mcleish. They shared stories. They were also very patient with him. He was blowing out his arse with lack o air. After it my after in law said " that was braw son thanks for that " Great Pr for the club and never cost a penny

    Does it? Have to say, I've never heard any Saints fan criticise Dodds for the way he left Saints. He did a good job for us over a very short period - then we were offered a massive sum for him and we rightly accepted. It was a great bit of business for Saints (despite the fact that it didn't keep us up). Don't really see why anyone would have a problem with that.
