    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    Clubs should be in the top league on merit, not financial reasons. And Saints don't need them for financial reasons anyway.

    League Reconstruction

    The Ann Budge document comes out with some crackers. This is not about saving Hearts but saving Scottish football. The premier League needs Hearts more than the championship In light of the increasingly uncertain times we are facing, I want to urge every Member Club to look at this proposal not as a way to save Hearts, Partick Thistle and Stranraer from relegation, but as a better way for Scottish Football to deal with the current emergency, while at the same time righting an unintended injustice. Biggest load of crap I have read in a while. 3 league's of 14 for 2 seasons top half play 36 games but 8 play 40. Possible play off between 5 th 6th and 7th for a euro spot for a new competition that's not started yet. I suppose the main caveat for the position after 2 years will be as long as hearts are not getting relegated.

    Naw no having that the reason i said what I did was that hearts were the shite team o the season and deserve to go down, and the rich should be helping the poorer clubs out. You wont be on the barricades wae me just yet.

    Yes, his move to Rangers worked out great for him. The Rangers fans really took to him from day 1. He was finished there before he started

    They need to move swiftly if the other clubs are going to swallow this, but they’re liable to be hawkish on the issue, or just duck it altogether. I think she’s actually making a bit of a tit of herself. At the end of the day, there’s very unlikely to be anything for her to crow about.

    Clubs need at least 3 hours per game for warm up, play the game, warm down etc and the changing facilities, dug outs etc need cleaning after every match so can’t see that working.

    I’m with you ... I agree she does not need anymore airtime... my point being that the extra income from playing Hearts would have helped a little ... particularly if we are going down the route of games broadcast online... there are a lot of Hearts fans that would pay to see closed door games of which saints would get a cut. The Scottish game is in crisis... teams need as much money as they can. Hearts would have helped. However, for many other reasons... they should go down in my opinion.

    League Reconstruction

    Her desperation levels are starting to become an embarrassment to Hearts now. This bit in particular is almost Sevco-esque in its arrogance: "Hearts not being in the Premier League at this time would seriously limit our ability to help Scottish football. In short, the Premiership needs Hearts more than the Championship does." There was me thinking teams got relegated for being bottom of the league, but apparently national "need" now has to be considered? This is like the armageddon nonsense all over again. She's actually managed to make her proposal worse, too. Why should the whole league structure be blown apart, just for two years? At the end of those two years there will be a huge upheaval with extra clubs getting relegated and yet more moaning. And what if one of those clubs still ends up being Hearts? Will she tell us again that Hearts can't go down because the stupidly-named Premiership "needs" them? I sincerely hope Saints, and as many other clubs as possible, give this a big fat no.

    To be fair she knew how to run an IT company. Also, I'm told by one or two people who know her that she is a very nice person. She's a football fan who tried to dig Hearts out of a hole. Unfortunately, having coughed up the required bawbees, she made one huge mistake and handed the shovel to one Craig Levein! She is now the latest in a long line of fans who have proved that the way to make a small fortune out of Scottish football is to start with a large one.

    Player of year.

    From a tv perspective Player of year: McCann (if McCart had been from the start he may have given him a run) Young player of year: McCann Best goal: Hibs 2v2 St Johnstone: O'Halloran, for the teams passing, the determination, the guile of McCann and the finish. Most important goal.The second by Kerr in the game above as the draw gave us on count back 6th. (I am sure any draw or win the same reason could be given but this a head to head). Tommy's antics at the end will live for evermore Best game. Choice between St Johnstone 2v2 Rangers or Aberdeen 1v1 St Johnstone as I enjoy taking points of of both but went for the 2v2

    As long as social distancing was observed outside and inside the ground, especially in the toilet area, with entry in one door and out the other. Also emergency workers and over 70's with weak bladders allowed in first..

    Will have to look at it as a sort of donation and if we get games that is a bonus. I would be ok with that as it would help the club.

    Yep, I agree with what a lot of people are saying. There is no way she will get the support she needs ... and ... who in their right mind would want to go through all this again in 2 years’ time?! It doesn’t add up. She makes a good point about throwing out a club in a time of crisis ... but I feel we’ve lost so much ground having to listen to their complaints that the best thing is for them to go. It’s like asking the guy who brought all the beer to the party to go home because he’s wasted and starting to smash ornaments.

    Ibrox latest...

    You would think that, at the very least, someone would raise a question regarding where all this money is coming from. It's all very well an unnamed entity at the club releasing a statement saying that it is being covered by existing investors but... no details. Concerns have also been raised in some quarters that no Ibrox interim financial statement has been released publicly this year. Such a statement needs to meet UEFA FFP criteria in order that a club receives a licence to participate in their competitions. Sadly it appears that UEFA do not actually view these statements. It is left up to the club's home association to assess whether a club meets the required criteria. Does anyone really think that the SFA would have the nerve to deny them participation even if FFP hasn't been met. Just after the 2012 fiasco the SFA stated that lessons had been learned and they would shortly be publishing the accounts of all clubs on their website in order to dispel such suspicion and to provide transparency. Eight years on and the suspicion of sleight of hand concerning one particular club continues.

    She has added it would be for two years as nobody wants a 1 year deal. She has also said she would give up their £300 grand parashute payment as the payments will be spread over 14 teams. What about next season ?. She is on about offering facilities for COVID19 testing. Does that mean she is going to pay for every player in Scotland tested. Playoffs for 5th 6th & 7th for Euro place. Just a desperate regurgitation of her previous plan. She must have had a busy weekend coming up with that load of bullshit.

    Yeah,if Muzz & Wright or 1 of them doesn't sign we will definitely need another midfielder at least. I think Bannatyne is the only one of the kids that is a midfielder & maybe not a ball winning midfielder. I thought Struthers would have done that. Would have also kept O,Reilly as a replacement for Wright. Can't see Muzz not signing though.

    We don't need Hearts in the top league, just like we didn't need Rangers. Besides, they'll be replaced by Dundee United who will bring just as many fans to McDiarmid, if not more.

    20/21 strips & sponors

    We already have that in place, Macron was a 2 year deal, so all you’re looking for is a new set of strips. All the training gear will be off the shelf stuff and probably already done. I’d say a couple of weeks to design a kit is probably an acceptable amount of time if they’ve already got templates. Let’s face it you’re only going to need to produce 40/50 strips originally for the players to wear and then the replicas can follow later on once mass produced.

    Taxi for Tommy?

    Just in the way we won the cup, the stars aligned, and I pretty much feel the same with TW’s departure. Most reasons that have been mentioned go on at other clubs, chairman holding tight purse strings etc, I do think it was crass of Preston to make insinuations regarding why he left. You either tell the whole truth or just shut up. I think the reasons are probably more mundane and it has been death by a thousand pinpricks. I’m sure history will eventually show that as much as it pains me to say it.. TW left at the right time. How many managers can leave a club a hero, and be able to return at some point an even bigger one! Will things be the same again? Probably not, but folk adjust... I won’t stop following Saints just because of a change of manager... TW thanks for the CUP, can die happy
