    Anyone else have a weird feeling of not knowing what to do last night? Still, can't wait for the open-top bus tour in the summer. It's going to be a belter. I hope the club is ready with plenty of season ticket forms to hand out. Seriously, I think it's hard to put into words how special this era is. Always gives me goosebumps to think of all the thousands of Saints fans, staff, officials and players going right back to 1885 who experienced little or no success, the fans who'd have lived and died hoping to see their team lift a trophy but never did. And then our generation comes along and gets two trophies and multiple trips to Europe. And it's not just the success, but the way we've done it. Barely spent a penny on transfers, no sugar-daddy owner, no crowing about a "fairytale". Every single bit of success has come about through sheer hard work and good decision-making, and that goes all the way back through multiple managers who have all contributed in pushing us on and building upon their predecessor's work. It really should be a far bigger story than it is, but I think the fact that we fly forever under the radar is in itself a part of that success. We're still underestimated, and always will be.

    Galatasary v Saints, 05/08/21

    Hello. I live in Turkey and I'm a Galatasaray fan. I read your chat and saw that you were looking for the broadcast of the match. I signed up to help you. If you can't find the broadcast in your language, there are some credible broadcasts (used by almost 70% of Turkish football fans) that are used by those who do not buy Spor Smart and BeinSports in Turkey. There are websites. But these are streams with Turkish comments. I wanted to rank the safest for you. These are some of them; https://www.selcuksportshd26.com/ (If you cannot access the site during the match or before the match, type selcuksports on google and click on the results.)(The owners of the site is Fenerbahce supporters. Therefore, if Saint Johnstone scores a goal, he can put an image mocking Galatasaray on the screen.If this bothers you, don't use this site. But it's still the best quality streaming site.) http://wvw.viagrars.com/ (name is weird but you know its illegal) (If you cannot access the site during the match or before the match, type Taraftarium on google and click on the results.) http://www.kralbozguncu15.net/ (If you cannot access the site during the match or before the match, type kralbozguncu on google and click on the results.) https://jokerbettv72.com/ (If you cannot access the site during the match or before the match, type jokerbet on google and click on the results.) http://www.dlovatofans.com/ (If you cannot access the site during the match or before the match, type selcuksports on google and click on the results.) These sites are completely safe and are used by many Turkish football fans. In fact, they are used so much that we can say that BeinSports, the broadcaster of the Turkish Super League, has declared war on these illegal stream sites. Sorry for my bad english. I can say that I used google translate completely while writing these.

    I love my little club...

    ...why? Because they look after their fans thats why! I had posted on the saints twitter post 'whos excited' with 'not me, I didnt get a ticket' thats all I said, I didnt piss and moan and complain, and i wasn't feeling at all excited about having to watch it on tv - seconds later... i get a message from sam porter, asking my full name, so i give him it, and then within a minute... my mobile rang, and it was bev!! and now... I have a ticket!! After a total of 15 hours trying to get through on the phone, not losing my rag and remaining patient, all it took was one tweet reply, and im at the game tomorrow!!! I cant be more excited than I am right now

    Harry Curran

    Hello guys. I thought i would provide an update since this thread was fairly recent. Harry is my uncle. He has obviously been retired a long time now. Since then hes done odd jobs such as the taxis and the likes. Hes currently labouring for a building firm and enjoying it. He talks fondly of his time in perth with the saints and he was a source of pride for me and my brother as young kids having a pro footballer in the family. The one time we went to perth to watch him the game was called of for weather i remember. I remember watching him play for Partick thistle in the inter toto cup in 1992 i think it was. They were beaten 2-1 and my uncle got the goal. That midfield goal threat as some have previously commented. Thistle in europe still makes me laugh. He loved his football. Even though wages for players at his level were not the best. I remember him telling me he would actually be out of pocket playing for some clubs. He put a lot into his football and is still a very fit guy. Even if he likes a few more beers these days. So yeh thats oor Harry still football daft and a good laugh. All the best to the saints.

    Half Time at Easter Road

    As many of you will have seen on St Johnstone’s Facebook page my 5 year old nephew Ryan done a lap around the Easter Road pitch at half time on Sunday He is raising money for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity who have looked after him since he was born and will look after him in the future He was supposed to run 1km in the junior Edinburgh marathon last year but because of the lockdowns it got cancelled a couple of times so it was arranged that he could do it at Easter Road In the end he ended up walking around instead of running as he was giving everyone high-fives around the pitch and people were handing him money! The whole family would like to say a massive thank you to all the St Johnstone fans who clapped him as he passed the away section and handed money to him. Between both sets of fans he walked away with £177. He’s been high as a kite ever since We’d also like to thank St Johnstone Football Club who advertised his fundraiser on Monday and to everyone who has donated online since Edited by Mod to add donation link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/weeryankerr

    Saints Summer Transfers 2021

    I think you'll find that now that the dust has settled and the detail of the deal is known fans are starting to see the bigger picture and a lot of that anger has dissipated. Fans are always unhappy when one of their favourites leave that will always be the case. I totally disagree with all your points. St.Johnstone are a business that is the envy of every club in Scotland.

    Saints Summer Transfers 2021

    Personally, I think it is a shame that we are taking the *iss out of a signing we have not yet seen wearing the shirt. We are short of experienced defenders and the youngsters will benefit. All our other signings have got a specific length of contract which have been announced in club statements. He may be on a pay per match, short term or long term contract but, until I have seen him on the field off play, I will not be praising or criticising his ability or lack of it. He is a CD signing and he must have seen something to warrant bringing him on board.

    So we’ve just had the most glorious 6 months as a Saintee Supporter and your whining .. The Dream is still alive we’re double cup holders calm down and reflect on our achievements then start crying when we’ve got 309 fans against Albion Rovers and are bottom of the 2nd division

    I was at the cup final in 1969 with my old Dad. It was the first game we ever went to together. It's one of these games which lives with you forever; Hampden - the smell of the grass, the huge crowd, the noise. We lost to a Celtic team full of the Lisbon Lions that day and if we hadn't lost that early goal we could well have went on to win it - Billy McNeil was giant that day heading a Buck McCarrie header of the line late on. I recall the press being very generous of their praise for us My old man had passed when we won in 2014 and I suspect like a lot of people thinking of absent friends, at the final whistle my first thoughts went to Dad. Still a poignant moment for me. I have no right to be greedy because I never thought we would win a major trophy in my lifetime but having been to two losing league cup finals..... if we could win this one I would be a very happy man.

    Saints Summer Transfers 2021

    Here's my thought on this. Ali McCann away to Preston in the english "2nd division". No chance of winning anything but will be earning a lot more money than he did at saints. Jason Kerr away to Wigan in the english "3rd division". No chance of winning anything but will be earning a lot more money than he did at saints. We are left with this question. How can an English 3rd division team pay more money than a Scottish premier league team? Here's the answer. Sky Sports. If you are a St Johnstone supporter and are paying a subscription to Sky Sports I would suggest that you cancel your subscription. You are part of the problem.

    Hugely disappointed in the result but I think that in itself shows how far we've come. Go back 10 years and we'd have been happy just to be involved in that game. Last night we were very much in it to win it and I firmly believe that on another night, with another rub of the green, and perhaps with Spoony/Bryson/Middleton available, we really could have taken them. Also massively proud of everyone at the club (including the fans), though. What an occasion we all made it (and in 'we' I mean everyone, ticket staff included!). The build-up, the atmosphere, the fan display, the way everyone got behind the team even when we were losing. I know these nights are seen as special occasions, but if we could take even a fraction of that atmosphere and attitude, plus a few extra numbers, into our average Saturday league games against Ross County etc, it could make such a difference. Also: I always knew Ali McCann was good, but don't think I appreciated quite how good he is until these European games. Whenever the opposition improve, he seems to improve too. He also seems faster and stronger than he was a year ago. And some of those touches and passes last night were insane. What a player. P.S. Never liked Sweet Caroline until last night. But that was f**king special.

    I'd get kicked in by a 90yo granny tbf, so I won't be able to do much. Just be shite if it happens, not been to a game with my dad for about 2 years so I bought us season tickets specifically so we can sit together in the seats we've used for 10+ years for moments like this. He's had a shite time of it this year so I don't want us to spend the start of the game walking around looking for seats.

    I held off posting yesterday, mainly because I’d had a few drinks, but also because I want to reflect on what we’ve just achieved. I know there are many St Johnstone fans out there who’ll write better than me, portray feelings better than me, have watched saints for far longer than me, but I’ll give it a shot. Yesterday was the greatest moment in St Johnstone football clubs long history. We’d already been dubbed the second most successful team on the last decade, I’d wager pound for pound we’re the most successful team in Europe over the last decade! Every person to a man who’s involved in any way shape or form with this magnificent football club can say they’ve played their part in getting us there. Yes we’ve had ups and downs, but my god I wouldn’t trade places with any other fan. This is a squad and club built on humble thoughts, hard work and an amazing ethic. Whether we play Kelty Hearts, Dunfermline, Clyde, Rangers or Hibs the players give the same 110% each time. The management gives them the tactical respect they deserve and whilst we may admire and respect many opposition teams and players, we don’t ever think they’re better than us. As fans we’re all the same. We go into every game expecting not to win, but secretly every one of us knows that right now this team isn’t going to let us down or go down without fighting tooth and nail. It makes you proud to be associated with this unbelievable football club, proud to wear the badge, proud to say you’re a fan of a diddy team. That’s something so many fans of big clubs around the world will never feel, when the world is against you and the team comes out swinging, the pride and emotion that it can generate is like nothing else. I may not be from Perth, I’ve never lived there, or even particularly liked the place. But my god it will ever have a place in my heart for producing St Johnstone and playing home to them. I just hope all the players and people around the club know how badly we’d all want to be there celebrating with them. We may not be large in number, but we’ve got a hell of a voice. So I just hope that to a man, whether you’re a lapsed fan, a die hard, a newly found fan that when the time comes, that 20 man squad and their management team get the loudest reception McDiarmid Park has ever seen or heard, because by god we’ve all missed it, this season especially. And I for one cannot wait to be surrounded by my fellow fans cheering this history making club on to further adventures and success. We are St Johnstone Football Club and I don’t think anyone is going to forget that any time soon!

    January 2021 Transfer Window

    I wonder what Kane Hemmings thinks of Dundee signing Cummings, after they bullied him into taking a pay cut less than a year ago. As far as Saints are concerned: I don't see the point of us trying to sign yet more strikers. We already have four strikers who can score goals. What we don't have is a system that works for any of them. We could sign 100 strikers but unless we do something to play to their strengths it will make zero difference.

    You strike me as being someone who has went to McD for the first time in years and certainly has no clue as to the modern game. The national team and some of the top teams in the EPL are struggling to find a regular goal scorer what makes you think we have a right to have one? Who are these 'proven' goal scoreres you allude to? It's also laughable that after winning two cups and securing another run in Europe that this team is now "Tommy's team". Plenty teams would love to have a centre half who was able to transition in to a centre forward with a goal scoring threat. The game was brutal on Saturday. Some of the players looked like they were playing with each other for the first time but I think the weather and the pitch had a lot to do with this. We weren't pummelled at Tannadice, a very good team pushed us back and took the game to us in the second half but we still won!! That's the objective - win the game and if you need a goalie or a fullback to acheive that so be it that's what's required. The Hearts game was similar and when you consider the wealth of riches and the squad Hearts have at their diposal is there any wonder that they are a strong outfit? We have 2000 season ticket holders, probably a bit more but prudence has see us in good shape to weather some stormy times and this in turn determines the players we can have in our squad. I think a real dose of reality is requierd by some Saints fans, We've punched above our weight for over ten years. We also lost our two best players early in the season and have had key injuries ; the teams in this league are all decent sides. Make no mistake we will need to be at our best to avoid a relegation fight. There is a long way to go and we have still to see the best of this team this term. We'll play a lot better than on Saturday and lose that's a fact. Being a fan is eduring the awful games we witnessed on Saturday so we can appreciate the highs and lets be honest we've had plenty of these in recent years. We are not the old firm who feel they have a God given right to be winning everything.

    Yep, and if you go back and watch the Saints v Dundee game from 1999 you'll hear that there was racial abuse aimed at Miguel Simao every time he touched the ball. However - with apologies for the cliche - two wrongs don't make a right. I don't want to hear footballers being subjected to personal abuse at matches. We can't say "the other team's fans have done it (or done it worse), so it's OK for us to do it". And we can't say "that's just the way football fans are." We are the fans. If we want to change these things, it's up to all of us collectively to change them. For me, the stuff being aimed at Leigh Griffiths during that match was unacceptable. And it's not the only unacceptable thing I've heard from Saints fans at matches. I'd like for us to be much better than this.

    Watched Brechin v Rothes this afternoon, Max Kucheriavyi was the best player of the park by a mile. Good free kick to set up the first goal and a terrific direct free kick in the last minute to nick a point. Took all the dead balls, and controlled the middle of the park. I can see why he got a contract at Saints, he has bags of potential.

    Luv it Sixties! The only way to be, maybe I’ve missed an update? but if this game goes ahead in an empty stadium it’s a huge leveller, as is the game being so early in the season, with a very fit and professional squad and management. Make no mistake this Saints team will be hard to beat, very well organised, streetwise and laced with real quality. The assumption among most is that Saints cannot top the best season in their history, well getting past this mob and making the group stages would be a fair stab at continuing progress after last season’s heroics, bring it on! wishing you all the luck going! coys!

    A message to all Saints fans...

    This season has been sensational. What this team has achieved is one of the great moments in Scottish (perhaps world) football. When we all get back in the stadiums to support our team...lets SUPPORT our team! I don't think its any coincidence that the season without any fans has produced a resurgent Zander, a much improved Kane and a player of the season performance from Spoony etc. If Spoony tries a stepover and looses possession....applaud, you'll skin him next time. Kane misses a chance...Na-na na naaaa Kanooo. If we lose a goal...encourage the team as much as you can! Jason gave a great interview after the win, this team is full of confidence and never thinks they are out of a game. We have to share that belief and not get on their backs if we aren't creating/converting many chances. This unbelievable team is built on an incredible defense and hard work. I seriously doubt we are going to win many games 5 - 4 next season...but we can win lots 1-0 if we keep this team together and show our appreciation for some of the best defensive football the league has seen. Drown out the boo boys. Support our history makers. Trust in Callum. COYS!!!

    Absolutely made up for The Saints, my late father worked briefly in Perth in the early 70’s and made me aware of the fact that St Johnstone were formed from a cricket club like my team Sheffield United and you’ve always been my favorite Scottish club due to his memories of his visits to Muirton Park. Enjoy your day and all the best.

    The amount of shite housing regarding ticket's across social media amongst Saints fans is sickening, a few arguments already of who deserves to be at the game and who doesn't, kinda my dicks bigger than your d*** type posts. This is just my opinion on the matter, like everyone I'd love to be there at the game but this really isn't going to be an option for us all. Football for me isn't JUST about what's happening on the pitch (though it's a bonus) it's sharing days like this with your family and friends, the whole build up, the planning of the actual day out and of course sharing the emotions as the game unfolds. It's obvious just how monumental this game is but due to the circumstances I'd rather be sharing this day in a pub/beer garden etc with a bunch of folk I've known for many many years and like me have been on the St Johnstone roller coaster throughout that time. It's really just a sad part of how life is at the moment surrounding the pandemic As stated just my opinion, good luck to whoever gets a ticket though.

    Canny believe Tanser is getting all the shit that is being flung his way. He's obviously not the hardest tackler in the team and relies on his pace to intercept the ball and move forward to put in good crosses. On balance, he can be caught out when a winger cuts inside, aka Chris Burke. Thankfully that hasn't happened too often. Whatever he decides to do, I wish him the best.

    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,

    Guys first all 65% of the people in istanbul are vaccinated plus we dont let people into the stadium without health clerance . you can come to istanbul easily and you can go back to UK via any airport in france or many of the Eu countries without being guaranteed on your back trip to scotland.only problem for you traveling Scottish fans is, like myself, over 44k seasonal card holders in TT Galatasaray arena. Since our stadium is undergoing some improvements and Turkish FA only allow 50% stadium capacity, we will pay at Fatih Terim stadium and capacity will be limited to 9800. So all tickets will be allocated to old seasonal ticket holders hence you won't be able to buy tickets. As for the second leg in Scotland, Galatasaray has never ever played without at least 1500/2000 away supporters anywhere in the world. Over 800 k Turks and Turkish Cypriots living in the UK so I can imagine couple of thousand will make their way to Perth. Please be kind to them as turks and Scottish people have always been friendly to each other and good luck for the game. As for the team we have making great transfers so far and 2 more might be announced anytime this weekend so we won't play badly again like we did against PSV

    Not posted for a long time - almost exactly 6yrs in fact...though I've been regular reader as we've battled along since then. But felt I just had to come back on following yesterday and comments about those no longer with us but watching from the Hampden Stands...and I'll include my mum in that group. A Dunkeld lass (she was a gamies daughter brought up on Craig-y-barns) and life-long supporter, she went with myself and my lad to the Cup final at Parkhead and loved and was so proud seeing her team win the Cup. And she'd have been cheering on from above on Sunday. We were brought up in Mount Florida and lived a stones-throw from Hampden. All through the 50s and 60s we'd have family from all over the country visiting for big matches, and I expect she didn't ever really think her team would lift a cup at the ground (especially after the disappointment of 1971). But now we have. And it's brilliant. I even spent £12.99 on Premier Sports to watch. Nerve-wracking but great goal from Rooney and great performances all over the pitch and CallumD that others have waxed lyrical on so I won't. Except to say my lad - sitting watching in his Sheffield front room wearing his Saintees top and scarf with pride commented that for all that the fancy dans that England might have - Perth Saintees have our very own Kane and Rooney doing the business up front. I liked that. COYS.
