    You always get the attention seekers that have to be OUTRAGED about absolutely everything but for the sane section of our support that are even countenancing this, give yourselves a shake. The man is 9 games into a managerial career. Unprecedented times with the pandemic, added to working under a structure where money is more of a concern than success. His team have been on the wrong end of some tight swings. Get behind the man and offer him the support that makes his job that bit easier and doesn't pile unnecessary pressure on him and his players. Thankfully, for his faults, Steve Brown won't wet the bed and will give Callum Davidson the time he needs but more importantly, certainly deserves.

    Those stats make no sense to me. Who judges the "quality" of a save? And how can you record "goals saved"? I don't even know what a "goal saved" is. Either it's a save, or it's a goal. You can't save a goal.

    Yes, because what we should be doing during a financial crisis, where the club has next to no income, is copy Dundee. Also worth mentioning that Brechin get a cut of the income from this game. I'm more than happy to pay £12 knowing it might help stop a club going out of business. Every part time side has a major chance of going under this season.

    I think there’s a big difference between slagging a manager off and being frustrated at a manager for a run of poor results and performances. it’s a big ask of clubs for people to buy season tickets where there’s probably little or no chance we will actually get into see a match before the turn of the year. This is then compounded by the fact that accessing saints tv hasn’t been straight forward and that when you actually can the product on the pitch has been pretty rubbish. I would rather have people discussing their frustrations than all blindly agreeing the status quo’s fine and we shouldn’t pass comment on it. if you look at the large number of contributors who no longer post it’s probably because they were chastised for making a comment they felt strongly about. Could it not be that the so called ‘knicker wetter‘s’ or ‘embarrassing posters’ are simply frustrated, disappointed or passionate about their club in the knowledge that our team can play so much better?

    Scottish football in a photo... 8 goals between Hamilton and St.Johnstone crammed into 1:59. 2 goals in a drab old firm match, strung out over 2:12.

    We won 7-0. SEVEN FECK*N NIL. When was was the last time a Saints fan said that? May was rubbish and scored a hat trick. Spoony is a useless greedy b'stard and scored two. Muzz could'nt hit a barn door from two yards. But he scored. Even Hendry scored. We also missed a load more chances but so what, it does'nt matter, we won seven nil. SEVEN FECK*N NIL..

    Let's not forget that a lot of these clubs around us who have been strengthening their squads were also asking their players to take pay cuts not so long ago. Hibs stand out a lot in that regard. And of course Dundee, who threatened to sack players who didn't agree to a pay cut, have somehow found the money to sign Charlie Adam. Saints, on the other hand, went down the route of honouring the contracts of existing players and making sure they got paid. We even gave short-term contracts to Booth, Craig and Kane rather than cut them loose to reduce the wage bill.

    I know many people were against us going for a manager who’s done the rounds by it does make you think would it have been better to take a punt at someone like Hughes. I really hope to be proved wrong but just don’t have much confidence in Davidson and his decision making from what I’ve seen so far

    1. Lark Saint must start all match threads from now on. 2. This is entirely down to me. I saw Stevie in Newburgh yesterday, and shouted at him to “gie’s a goal tomorrow”. You’re welcome. 3. The new striker might as well go home - he’s done his job already without kicking a ball!

    Wonder if Dykes would be a first choice striker for Scotland right now if he'd remained at Livingston. Those few weeks spent at a mid-table lower-league English club must have seriously improved him.

    Stroll in the park, but nice result, when did we last get 7 in a game? Last time I remember was against East Stirling in about 1982 or 3. My only grump why not let spoony take the penalty to get a deserved hatrick (possibly).

    We lost, but didn't deserve to. Much better team performance, played with passion, won the ref calls with aggressive shouts, celtic never got into a rhythm, just 2 late goals. Do that every week now please so we can get off the bottom of the table, have to bring that intensity when playing lower opposition.

    Analysts have built up huge databases of shot locations and outcomes in the Scottish Premiership and similar leagues dating back over years. If a right-footed shot is taken by a right-footed player under pressure and with two defenders between him and the goal, they will have every outcome from the hundreds or thousands of times this has happened. This means they can attribute a likely percentage of a goal being scored (xG) or the shot being saved (xSv). If a goalkeeper saves a shot that has a more than x% chance of being scored historically, then that would be regarded as a goal saved by the average goalkeeper for a league of the Premiership's standing. For the last 18 months, these numbers routinely show that Clark concedes goals that extensive data suggests the average goalkeeper would save. And, in my opinion, that backs up exactly what I'm seeing with my own eyes.

    Greetings Sainteez! I hope you’re all well and coping with all this Covid stuff. Looking forward to Saturday, but feeling a bit gutted that I am not meeting a few mates before and after for a fixture I have not missed for many years! As for the game, not an easy one to predict, after a reasonable start we have lost confidence and form, Saints appear to be going in the opposite direction, but not a lot between 7/8 teams in this division as the table shows. I expect to see a Utd team sitting in and hitting on the break, Mellon appears to have little faith in several of the more experienced players in his squad, the key on Saturday will be not to lose, but a big 3 points up for grabs.

    You have singled Brechin out. They got as "lucky" as Hamilton, QOS and Forfar, yet you're not claiming some conspiracy saved their place in their divisions. As for Brora, again, they weren't even guaranteed a shot at Brechin (if the play offs were played they'd have to have beaten Kelty first), so it's bizarre you're claiming they were almost guaranteed promotion.

    Yeah i wondered if they had just bought the old matchwinner name of just copied the matchwinner logo. Before they were bought over, about 1993 Matchwinner used to be based in Rutherglen had this massive stockroom with boxes of old kit remember buying my team training shorts which were the old Hull City kit complete with tiger badge on them

    What struck me with Brechin is who are their players? Where are the names you know and, across that league, where are the lower league journeymen? They seem to only have those on their last legs (Martin Scott) or kids. Then you look at the Kelty team midweek and there is your answer. These Lower League teams in particular seem to be able to attract players ahead of League Two clubs. In contrast to Brechin, their team was packed with guys you knew. Suspect we could see a fair changing of the guard in the next seasons and more SPFL clubs going the way of Berwick and East Stirlingshire. Whilst Kelty would be a welcome addition having put a lot into their ground/community and have an established fan base, the worry is that league places are secured by essentially franchise clubs like BSC Glasgow, East Kilbride and Caledonian Braves. That doesn't help Scottish football. Although rather 42 Caledonian Braves than colt teams right enough...

    O,Halloran can get to ****. Should have been the freshest player on the park but allowed the centre half to sprint up the wing .McCann drawn out of the middle to try & stop him whilst he stood about on 18 yard line & not even try to close down.

    I think this is part of the problem. Club has been gutted from the inside out and given a lot of the players have been around the club for a long time, this will no doubt filter into a more negative dressing room. Add to that the obvious 'issues' that Tommy had before leaving. On the pitch, no, it's not been good enough, but we aren't miles off the pace. I know it is well said about the fine margins, but it is true. If we were getting overrun like in the Stark days, then I'd be really concerned, but if we had just turned one of those losses into a draw/win, then really wouldn't look nearly as bad. I think CD knows what needs doing, just needs to get there. Let's not forget, he's not a total novice at this, he'll be seeing what we all see, but cannot exactly come out and slag off the players or the club this early on. Have faith.

    Hes lost Butcher, Holt and Wright, who would all walk into our starting line up just now, or be upgrades on those on the bench. Hes also lost a genuine match winner in Swanson, plus the loss of Anderson at training. Hes been given almost no money to replace them, and the club provide him with no scouting facilities. The players went around 6 months without a game, before going straight into league fixtures. He has around 16 senior outfield players, and hes had Clark, Booth, Davidson, Bryson, Kane and May miss more games than they've played, while Craig and MOH have both missed games due to suspension. How can you see all that, see the narrow defeats to the likes of Aberdeen/Hibs, and decide that the best course of action is to be part of a frenzied group who pile pressure onto him and the players? Hes signed two boys from Millwall, and then two experienced players, because he needs players he knows about. I dont think people understand how ****ing amateur the club actually is at scouting players. Davidson will have walked in and the only hints at players the club were looking at would be whatever TW tells him over the phone. This'll come out wrong, but Brown/Robertson have been lucky that Covid has given them an excuse to strip the squad and club back to the bare bones, as otherwise there would be far, far, more uproar about how they're acting.

    Totally agree with the club's position on this. Saints need to make sure they're able to look after their existing staff as a priority. Bringing in more people at the moment would be irresponsible. I don't want to see us following the lead of clubs like Dundee and Hibs - pressuring their existing players into taking pay cuts, then bragging about making new signings.
