    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,

    Saints v Accies

    For all we've heard from both Tommy and CD about May needing to get back to being an out and out striker, to me he still looks like he's playing miles away from goal and at this stage I really have to wonder whether that's just the way he naturally wants to play now, or if it's the instruction he's being given. I actually think he's had a strong season and contributed a lot, but we really need him to be in front of that goal. As bad as MOH's miss was, I think he showed the impact he can make when he runs at people, and given more time I suspect he would have created more chances for us. Our frontline had been crying out for someone who plays in the way he does. For me, leaving it so late to bring him on was a very poor decision. Realistically, Conway was never going to come on and transform the game, was he? Melamed appears to be this season's Gormley/Krachunov/Vihmann at the moment. I can't help but feel a bit sorry for the guy - having read a bit about his background, watched his highlights videos and seen his cameo performances for us, I'm really struggling to believe that he can really be all that bad a player. He's uprooted his life to come here during an absolute shitshow of a year - surely he at least deserves a proper chance?

    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.

    And the reverse is, if our forwards stopped squandering double figure chances every game and our defenders stopped parting like the Dead Sea giving opposition players so many clear chances, how many more points would we have? It is a team game and constantly slaughtering individual players rather than getting behind them does the club no good whatsoever.

    Livingston had the second worst performing goalkeeper in the league but look at how their form has rocketed since they replaced him with simply an average keeper. In my opinion, Saints would be up to 12 points better off with.an average goalkeeper, which I think would offer a far truer reflection on our performances this season. Blind loyalty to a massively underperforming goalkeeper from both the management and the support only holds the team back.

    Thanks, glad you liked it! I don't know a huge amount about what happened to Marjory. She married a man from Dundee, so I guess her bad luck continued! She had one daughter and died aged 78. That's all I know. Just finished the first draft of the next one yesterday. Aim to have the final draft done by Easter.

    Why would those players simply leave when they have contracts until the end of the season? And why would we want to ditch Hendry when we've seen what a good player he can be for us? Would it not be way more beneficial to work towards getting his form back up again? Personally I'd still like us to go with May and Hendry up front in the 3-5-2 that Tommy had introduced towards the end of last season. That would give us a strike pairing with a bit of support, and an extra central midfielder instead of loads of players getting in each other's way on the wings.

    @Cagey It’s a direct quote from Callum: “He’s got qualities but it’s a difficult balance for me. It’s probably my fault for not throwing him in – there’s that trust issue” “I thought Kano was excellent again and I trust him to do the other side of the game for me.” Really poor stuff from us. Convince a guy to sign, locked in a hotel room for over 2 weeks with an exercise bike, some weights and a training program. Declare him fit enough in November and then let him rot on the bench while Kane misses guilt edge chances, O’Halloran let’s the team down badly by getting sent off, bounces straight back into the team AND misses a guilt edge chance to win the match. Really really poor from us. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/55494058 Watch 30-35 seconds - May miss Watch 45-50 seconds - Kane toothless Watch 1:20-1:30 - Kane sitter Watch 1:55-2:00 O’Halloran sitter And that’s just from a 2 minute highlight reel. How Callum can’t see that our strikers aren’t doing their primary job and we are heading towards relegation. We don’t need someone to trust, we need someone to score goals. Melamed deserves at least 20-30 mins to be in with a fighting chance of getting “match sharp”.

    This is what gets me. Folk can argue with the stats (and these aren't advanced metrics, they are very simple: basically shots on target minus goals conceded) but are they not watching the guy? It annoys me that people are saying he's a hate figure or whatever. For a long time, people have kept quiet and backed him, keeping reservations to themselves. But this is 18 months now of poor form, eventually the patience is going to break. Saying we shouldn't criticise him until the summer because he's here until then whatever is fair enough I suppose but trying to claim he's not playing poorly, I just find that bizarre from anyone that actually watches a lot of the team in action.

    No stats on defenders, midfielders, miscues, crosses defended, weather, missed chances, striker shots on target vs attempts, missed sitters, poor marking, angle and power of shot, swerve of ball, 'should have shot' instead of pass, sun glare .... ya di da Just this 'indisputable' stat on goalies, but not any other factors that create the overall team / player performance that impacts keeper performance and confidence in their back line. Our own manager, who spends hours upon hours with Zander, says he's the guy, so should CD be fired for being so stupid as he can't read these stats and not switch him? If Zander had the best stats in the league, but two terrible games on the trot, with dozens of errors, and same in practice, would stats matter to the manager or any of us? Players confidence is crucial ... great boost all round today...so lets keep witch hunting Zander, who looked confident and didn't put a foot wrong.

    Saints v Accies

    Well that was infuriating. May and Kane worked their arses off but May's still not getting close enough to goal and Kane's finishing really badly let him down. With 20 minutes to go on a heavy pitch everyone looked knackered, and yet instead of bringing on our fastest attacking player (MOH) to run at them, we brought on probably our slowest (Conway). Meanwhile Melamed doesn't get on the pitch at all. Just how bad is he that Davidson doesn't even think it's worth bringing him on in a game like that? It's absolutely baffling.

    Saints v Rangers.

    There’s far too many changes, a manager should know what his best player is for each position. I doubt if any fan could guess what the team selection is for any game of the season. People will argue that it is the modern way of squad rotation. That is fine if you have twenty odd great players. We often seem to do better when we are down to the bare minimum with injuries and suspensions. You should try and play your best players, the ones that the opposing team know are good and are frightened of, not leave them on the bench. On Saturday we coped with Connolly very well he goes off we take Wetherspoon off and McAllister runs riot on our left side. Has anyone else noticed we seem to do better when Murray Davidson is out injured, not that I think he is a bad player and am always disappointed when he gets injured. But allot of our good runs of results seem to coincide with him being injured. As for tonight there were spells in the match when we played not too bad. Callum is maybe playing all the right players but not necessarily in the right places. Anyway to all Saints fans have a Merry Christmas and remember we have had worse teams and worse times.

    I imagine there might be quite a few players looking for moves closer to home after this past year. Tanser's presumably had to go the majority of the year without being able to see family/friends from back home. If he can move back south and get a pay rise in the process it's probably a no-brainer for him. I've always liked Tanser - good player who's contributed a lot more than I probably expected when he first signed for us. Think he takes some unfair stick on here at times. He's not irreplaceable on his own but the worry comes if multiple players start making the same decision.

    Surely that's fair enough this time, though? The club is probably going to have to go the entire season without a single paying fan coming through the gate. Steve Brown's been weirdly quiet on the impact of that so far but I can't imagine the picture is a particularly rosey one. I really don't think this is the time to push the boat out in the transfer market. If anything, I think CD did very well to get the board to sanction the Melamed signing under the circumstances - and for what? Right now that signing seems like a big waste of money. To be honest I'm still of the opinion that the squad we have is good enough. The onus absolutely has to be on Davidson to start getting the best out of them.

    Agree defenders cannot seem to defend crosses and dead ball deliveries despite the manager and an assistant being defenders. Get the Goalie coach to f***, since he has been at the club Zander has not commanded his box or being quick at setting up any attacks - he used too but it looks as if it has been coached out of him. Cannot see many Goalies available who would improve the position.
