    He should be impeached for incitement.

    Other games on the go

    Have to say I'm very, very excited about the looming prospect of Gerrard eventually getting the Liverpool job and making a gigantic mess of it. Genuinely can't wait.

    League position

    Because of the Covid issues I have decided to post a copy of the League as it stands and also on a points per game basis. I will try and update as quickly as possible after games are played so we have a true indication where we are if the league is called early.

    Burnley

    From the BBC: New Burnley owner Alan Pace says he intends to adopt a unique approach to running the Premier League club. Pace's ALK Capital Investment Group has spent around £170m to take an 84% controlling stake in Burnley. Unlike most of the Premier League's overseas owners, American Pace has moved to the UK from New York to take a hands-on role in running the Clarets. "I don't think you have ever seen anyone like me," said the 53-year-old former Wall Street banker. "You certainly haven't seen someone like me come in to run a football club and interact and live with the community where they are going to operate." Pray God this never happens to Saints.

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    Celtic squad decimated by 13 players out. Well since another one of those has now tested positive it was totally justified for them all to have to isolate. It could have been any one of them. Remarkable that it was just 2 that tested positive, well thats not exactly a ringing endorsement for it being a good idea going to Dubai. What were the comments about Saints?

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    One of the isolating 13 players at Celtic now tested positive. Given that 5 have already had it within the last 5 months probably cuts it down to 1 of 8 and can't see the goalie catching it.

    Yeah I got it wrong. Wyscout claim they count blocked shots as shots, but clearly only use Shots on target for goalkeepers. Clark is conceding every ~2 shots on target

    Mainstand is not plucking figures out of thin air. Random was claiming that Zander conceded a goal for every 1.96 shots by opponents at our goal - not just shots on target! To someone who learned to count using a chalk board and a duster that seemed nonsense. A simple check of the BBC stats for our last 6 games showed 50 shots at our goal which resulted in 8 goals. Random has since accepted that his source (something called WyScout) was incorrect. See the top of this page and the end of page 8.

    Just reading about Jackson Irvine being without a club for 7 months, he’d have been a good signing, good age and great engine,

    Yes, and I’m sure he had a howler by his own standards, but we aren’t judging Clark over one game here. He’s been poor for 18 months. You may or may not rate the metric, but every keeper is being graded on the same scale and Clark is at the bottom.

    Thank you for confirming my suspicions! Mainstand plucking numbers out of thin air.

    I always think it's interesting the way goalkeepers are treated differently ... pretty much every other player in our squad has been in and out of the team this season and no one really raises an eyebrow when it happens, but if Parish was to come in for Clark for a few games it would be seen as a massive statement. Personally I thought Parish looked OK when he played at the start of the season, and given Clark's ropey form I wouldn't object to seeing Parish given some more game time. Doesn't have to mean Clark's Saints career is over forever. Just means Clark's getting a break and someone else is getting to show what they can do. It happened with Mannus when Clark came in for a spell, and didn't seem to do him any harm. As it stands I think probably CD is in a situation where he has two goalkeepers under contract, doesn't feel his budget will allow him to go out and get a new one (or, at least, not a new one that is any better than he already has), and has maybe just decided that the only choice he has at the moment is to stick with Clark, try to work with him and avoid denting his confidence, and hope his form will pick up again. I actually thought Clark had a good game on Saturday, albeit without having a huge amount to do.

    50 shots on target or 50 shots on goal? I’m just thinking, the last 2 games he has conceded 100% of shots on target

    So it's ok to say........ statistically he's performing poorly. Not ok to say.....he's a useless big shitebag.

    I was diagnosed with high blood pressure recently, and I have no doubt that it has mainly been caused by reading posts from Cagey and mainstand on We Are Perth. If they could inform me that it's purely satirical (even if that's untrue), it would be the kindest thing to do for the sake of my health.
