    Selling our two best players for peanuts on the last day, and thinking we could replace Ali McCann with shite loan players has royally screwed us this season, nice one Steve.

    Well that was bloody awful. Really worrying that a Dundee side that has struggled for most of the season - including in games against ourselves - suddenly looks so much better than us and has now gone above us in the league. We really didn't trouble them at all. At first I thought we were handling the loss of Kerr and McCann fairly well but we really do seem to be feeling their absence now. What was a solid, consistent and well organised back three just isn't working without Kerr (and the constant changes to who plays in that role probably aren't helping). And allowing Preston to bully us into handing McCann over to them for peanuts just feels like a worse and worse decision with every passing week. I've been all for giving Crawford and MacPherson a chance and I think both have shown some positive signs, but of late they've been really poor and MacPherson had a truly rotten game tonight, to the point that I was starting to feel a bit sorry for him. Neither Craig nor Muzz should escape criticism for tonight either. It's easy to scapegoat the new guys but it's not all on them. For me there were a lot of basic errors tonight that make me really question our preparation and what we're doing in training (case in point coming in the second half where we had a free kick in a promising position and completely messed it up - why do the players not know exactly what they're doing in a situation like that?). Eetu I thought did OK and at least tries to move the ball forward and take a crack at goal. And VSO again looked the part when he came on. Beyond that, I'm struggling for positives right now. Worried.

    Peak 2021 internet when a guy on a football forum somehow manages to find a way to link a striker not getting a game to "woke snowflakes".

    I really hope they do. There's talk of Eetu not being used to how we play the Scottish game, only way to get him used to it is to get him playing it!

    Only the Steve fan boys and the gullible actually believe that nonsense. McCann was the final straw after the squad decreasing in the summer plus not strengthening before the Euro games, start of the league and first cup defence. The chairman's biscuit tin mentality probably cost us the £3m group stage money. Looks like some life changing amounts are easy to turn down after all.

    We have to identify a striker & midfielder & then persuade them to come here. Just like loads of other teams. For starters I would let Crawford go & bring back Ballantyne.

    Premier Sports Cup 2021/22

    OMG someone has the hump 1 - It was never copied and pasted. 2 - I did think about it I thought how can I tell this guy he is havering whilst being nice about it. 3 - Yes I agree underspending is a danger and is something that you have to be careful of. But to criticise someone for underspending when they have successfully run the club through one of the most difficult periods football in the world has gone through in history is akin to criticising Callum for only winning the double last season. 4 - I take it you are not a fan of the Browns which raises the question WHY??

    I wouldn't swap them. I think winning the League Cup in particular was a tick on the to-do list for us because we'd never done it before. When it started to look possible that we'd turn that into a Cup Double, it became really special because it's something most of us would never even have contemplated previously. There's a real possibility that no non-Old Firm side will do a Cup Double like that again in our life times. We've done something special that no other Scottish fans will get to experience (the OF will win Doubles at some point, but their fans would never understand what it means to a club like St Johnstone, so it's not the same thing). Having said all that, now that we've won both cups I want the league next.

He's into stats and no reason to come out with stuff like this unless genuine. No surprise to see who the top two are and it just backs up what we hear every game. Refs are very quick to book Saints players while letting the opposition off with numerous fouls before finally taking action, if any. Looks like some fans aren't paranoid or deluded after all!

    All this guff about we had to let them go or they would have stopped playing. Those guys would still have wanted a move & would have played for it & if they kept up their performance they would have got a move in January & we probably got a decent fee.

    Dundee Hiring McDiarmid

    Surely this is a wind up? Is the current owner a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic? He owns an asset which a developer wants to buy (or so it is said) and it is suggested he will sell it to his tenant who will then sell on to the developer at a profit! Aye right.

    Have to say that, despite the occasional goal, I am getting a bit tired of Ali Crawford's displays. He's light as a feather, and his decision making can be poor. I think most of the time we're probably playing him out of position. I'd prefer us to look elsewhere. Kennedy and Wright are still available.

    Wish people would give young Etu a break. At one point tonight he created space for himself and got a left footed shot away. Maybe not the strongest shot but at least it made Hart save it. Hopefully with Kane suspended for Hibs match then Etu can be on form the start and then we can see what he has to offer rather than a 10 minute sub appearance.

    Scotland

    Scotland clearly taking inspiration from Saints, and even bringing on an ex-Saintee! So we will now be seeded, and at home, in the Play-Off semis in March. Draw a week Friday. The host for the one-off final, incidentally, will be determined by a draw. Slight worry that both Portugal and Italy are in the Play-Offs, but if we play like that....... Crowd were braw, according to my laddie, who was there. Great to have a national team to be proud of once again. And brilliant that we have a player in the squad. Hopefully, there will be some warm-up matches, and he might get a game.

    For a club like Rangers who have vast amounts of (other peoples) resources to spend, it’s easier to win the league than win the double. The league allows them to slip up, there’s not the same pressure on every game in the same way as there is in the cup where one mistake means the double is gone. For a club like Saints it’s easier to win the double than the league. The consistency required to win the league is unfortunately most likely beyond any club other than two in Scotland. All that being said, St Johnstone winning the double is clearly a vastly bigger achievement than Rangers winning the league undefeated. They all know that, we all know that, and no matter how much crying they do that won’t change.

    If he's potentially coming in January, it might be that Muller is being recalled, or is Ambrose's contract only until Jan? Unless we are doing the unthinkable and possibly bringing someone in, without a player leaving.

    Saints players on loan

    These are our 7 players on loan. Max Kucheriavyi Since we last caught up with Max, the Ukrainian has played two games for Brechin City. His first was against Strathspey Thistle where the midfielder put on a dazzling display at Glebe Park. The home side got off to a poor start, with Thistle taking a two goal advantage early on. Kucheravy set-piece delivery would be crucial through-out the 90 minutes. His corner would be met by a bullet header from Hamish Thomson, minutes later another corner from the Saints loanee was glanced in by David Cox to equalise. City would fall behind once again after Kris Duncan latched on to a rebounded shot, but another Cox header would see City equalise. Max rifled in a shot from just outside the box, giving Brechin the lead for the first time of the match. Three more goals from Andy Kirk’s men would confirm the victory. His second game against Clachnacuddin wasn’t quite as eventful. Max tested the Clach keeper multiple times, however, he couldn’t provide the break-through Brechin needed. Marc Scott eventually broke the deadlock for City with his goal being the only thing that separated the two sides. Jack Wills The young keeper would be shocked in the opening six minutes with Strathspey Thistle scoring twice. After settling into the game Jack would pull off some decent saves one of which saw Kris Duncan score the rebound. For the rest of the game Wills wasn’t really tested and after the early scare, Brechin comfortably won 7-3. Brechin would face Clachnacuddin next. The Saints loanee wouldn’t really be challenged during the game, with the only real chance coming for Clach on the stroke of half-time, where a weak header was easily dealt with by the keeper. Sam Denham After the highs of scoring in the Scottish Cup against Haddington Athletic after a shocking car crash, it seemed as though the young centre-back was struggling with fatigue. He was one of three defenders dribbled past for Thistle’s first goal. Sam attempted to clear a crossed ball but miss-hit it which a Strathspey player pounced on to put in their third. Andy Kirk would put the youngster on the bench for Brechin’s game against Clachnacuddin, giving Sam a rest after what had been an eventful couple of weeks. Alex Ferguson Alex Ferguson was not part of the Edinburgh City squad who lost 4-0 to Albion Rovers last weekend. Cammy Ballantyne Cammy has continued to be a mainstay in the Montrose midfield. Ballantyne set up a few chances for the Gable Endies against Peterhead, however they weren’t clear cut and Montrose struggled to break the deadlock. Sean Dillon would be sent-off, leaving the Angus side with 10 men. Stewart Petrie’s men put in a resilient performance to make sure they left Balmoor with one point. Montrose hosted high-flying Cove next. It would be a battle with the conditions more than anything else, it was blowing a gale the length of Links Park. Cammy did well to get a hold of the game and keep the ball on the ground but he would be subbed with less than five minutes to go. The game ended in a goalless draw with both keepers pulling off some vital saves. Charlie Gilmour Gilmour would pick up his first win in an Alloa shirt against table-toppers Airdrieonians. The Saints loanee would start in the centre of the pitch for Barry Ferguson’s men. He put on a fantastic defensive display at the base of midfield, sweeping up any loose balls in sight and even putting in a crucial block in the 77th minute. Charlie would face another tough test against full-time side Falkirk. It was another composed performance both on and off the ball. Falkirk took the lead with less than 10 minutes to go but Alloa equalised straight from kick-off. It was a well deserved point for the wasps. Callum Hendry Callum started on the bench for Kilmarnock against Queen of the South. The striker came on in the 71st minute with Killie leading 2-0. It would take Hendry less than 20 minutes to get on the scoresheet. The forward dribbled into the box and drilled a low shot past the keeper. A minute later he would turn provider, setting up Chris Burke with a delightful backheel. Hendry would get a start in the next game against Partick Thistle, which proved to be a much tougher test. The striker was quiet for much of the game, with his only real chance coming in the 55th minute. Callum sliced a difficult volley over the bar. Tommy Wright took off the striker in the 72nd minute.

    I know this is the official club line, but I'm not sure I agree that we had no choice. He was under contract. He may have wanted to leave but surely he would have understood that he can only leave if a buying club meets Saints' valuation. It would have been totally reasonable of Saints to tell Preston they need to meet our valuation or wait until the next transfer window. Let's not forget that Preston unsettled the player by making their financial package known to him/his agent before Saints had accepted an offer (if Steve Brown's version of events is correct).
