    Don't really get involved in pre-match as being a old timer I've just got used to having absolutely no idea which Saints will turn up and never ever go in with high expectations. I chose Saints so they really don't owe me much. That's what always gets me when I see the negativity on this and other forums. I'm praying we get a result today. We are good enough on our day and I'll be ecstatic if we win and seek if we lose. No be on slating folk and getting personal at our players if we lose either. Much worse things happen in life. A few of the old boys will remember when we played the Dons this time of year in 1971 we lost 1-0 in front of 22,500. It was mental and although I was only 8 still remember it. Following year we lost 4-2 at Pittodrie and 26,500 there, remember listening to it on the radio in my shed in Hillyland A point today would be a great start ahead of the next 2 "big" games. Come On Saints. Let's get inaboot them,

    In an age where the word legend is so overused, as to be hollowed of its real meaning, I give you a real legend of our game! RIP Jim and thanks for all those wonderful memories and the splash of colour you gave to our lives over so many years......

    A better performance maybe but that still only elevates us back to the level of looking a bit better on the ball in the middle of the park. Still practically zero attacking threat where it matters and still guaranteed at least one goal lost via a complete defensive **** up.........it's not a good mix

    The ghosts of relegation

    This, and your earlier post, contains some great memories. D’you think the young ones will have as many great memories? Even though we were garbage for years there were some highs in amongst them, as you say, beating St Mirren. We were a yo-yo club for a long time. Sometimes the yo-yo broke and stopped at its lowest position :)

    Was at the 1-0 game sitting in the North end of the stand with my old man. Crowd was boosted by the cancellation of the Dundee derby. Heard about Ibrox disaster on car radio on way home, found out the next day that 4 boys from my school had died.
