    It's my daughter that left on a stretcher, thanks for the good wishes. She's in Ninewells getting treatment just now, we're hoping to have her home for Christmas. Thank you to the staff who helped her yesterday.

    Hi all, Given the current situation - and given that my own work situation means I'm at home for the next three weeks at least - I'm going to do a bit of work on the site and start a new little project. The forum will continue to be accessible from www.weareperth.co.uk/wapforum/ as normal - but if you go to www.weareperth.co.uk you will see a page that will change multiple times a day until I get it figured out! Basically, I'm creating a video archive - trying to index as much Saints content as I can find on YouTube and elsewhere and curate it so it's possible to flick through entire seasons' worth of games in order, find a particular game, and hopefully see the team line ups etc with each game. If it goes well, and if there's interest, I may start posting the odd article and stuff here and there as well - if you've got any interest in submitting absolutely anything at all for such a project please do get in touch! Hope everyone is well and keeping safe! Jamie

    Still waiting on yer evidence rather than your keyboard attacks on a member of the staff at SJFC. That's what I'm no liking. As mentioned before is it in the same evidence bag as The Rangers SPFL evidence? Yer going on and on and on , on various threads. What has Kirsten done? That's all we want you to tell us. And then we can make our minds up. But for you to constantly keep this going with...…..(it appears) nothing...….. I just don't get it. Tommy left because of KR.....come on ???????????? I know nothing and maybe he didn't see eye to eye with her but still...….leave his job....that's no the Tommy we know is it? What he said in his interview is good enough for me. And he's gone but never forgotten. We stick together as one. SJFC

    I do often wonder how good the past 7 years could have been for Saints if we'd had a decent manager.

    St Johnstone v Hibs 09/11/19

    this stop-start season is infuriating for us fans and must be so for the players, too. No game last week, now a game against Hibs and then yet another sodding international break. I'm sick of them. The last two seasons have been absolutely ruined by the number of blank weekends.

    Taxi For Davidson

    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.

    I remember this well, I heard a snap and the physio was going to twist it back thinking it was ok. But I stopped him. Arm broken. Very sore too. My daughter was at the game and I went off waving to her not letting on it was broken. Great memories Roy Baines

    Time to sell the club Steve... This guy could put a negative spin on a lottery win. Right now, Steve Brown could be doing the following: Praising our superb recent run of form Shouting about our superb home grown, young team. Encouraging fans to get behind the hunt for top 6. Encouraging fans to join in with FCU home and away to create an atmosphere. Encouraging fans to attend a Scottish Cup 1/4 final and support the lads get back to Hampden. Instead, he’s bleating about the budget, which according to Robert Thompson has jumped from 8th biggest 3 months ago, to 6th now. His negativity is unreal. He makes running the club seem like such a chore. Does he not realise that this has a wider effect? It’s dragging us down. Every time I read anything from him, I’m on an instant downer.

    Tommy is God

    Heart on sleeve comments in press this week, he is saints through and through, no ones perfect, every manager makes mistakes but I wouldn't swap him for any other SPFL manager. Celtic game will take care of itself, next Saturday is massive, a win against Hearts goes a long way to extending our run in the top flight and giving us the summer to rebalance the squad. Will be down for this one and a few beers in town after the game. Regardless of what I think about the way the club is being run, management will move on, saints will be here forever.

    New ownership

    Just an observation , Steve Brown has been heavily criticed in the past for not letting fans in on what's happening within the Club and the minute he lets folk know the position , once again he is heavily criticised. Just saying.

    I find the timing of this baffling, to be honest. We're on a great run, we're still in the Cup, we're firmly in the hunt for top 6, and for the first time in a while the squad actually has several sellable assets. Yet Steve Brown's talking as if the season has already been a failure. By all means he can think this way behind closed doors, but does he really need to talk to the media about it? As far as I can see, all he's doing is putting a downer on everything. If he really wants fans to start coming back in numbers, maybe the down-in-the-dumps image he puts across of himself and the club and the manager is something he could start giving a bit more thought. I think this is a really positive, exciting time for Saints - we have an opportunity to finish the season on a high, and really look forward to what we might be able to do next season if we start well. Couldn't Steve Brown mention some of that stuff instead?

    I doubt we’d move Duffy along. Being very harsh there. He wasn’t signed to play this season, he was signed to develop then chucked in at the deep end.

    Of course there are always areas for improvement, but to me this statement is just bizarre. We've comfortably stayed in the top flight for over 10 years, recently won our first cup, had several recent European qualifications, and consistently appointed successful managers, and done it all whilst staying debt free, owning our own stadium and surrounding land and amassing £2 million in the bank, despite our fairly crap average attendances. On what basis are Saints not a well-run club? What else could the club do or achieve that would make it well run in your eyes?

    Saints v st mirren 29/08/20

    Great result & gets us moving up the table & into the break with a boost. Was a bit worried about this game as Buddies were getting great press. Clancy let the game flow making it a better spectacle than the last 2 games. Danny Mac is some player & there is no saying where he will end up in the game. Unfortunately not Saints. Conway is looking better by the game & once he gets fitter I think he will be a good addition to the team. Thanks Saints you just brightened up my weekend.

    I mean RandomGuy has made some very fair points in this argument, whereas you seem intent on bashing a kid in his first season playing first team football. As RandomGuy has pointed out players take time, Anderson being the prime example. He was a useless right back as a kid and never had any pace, who turned into our record appearance holder as a centreback, give the guy a chance. As for the continual shoehorning or Kirsten Robertson into every post, it’s getting boring. We get it, you don’t like her, but like it or not she’s not going anywhere right now, especially when the club needs as many hands as it can get to restore some normality.

    Baaa baaa! You should convert to Aberdeen. The guy has a chance to talk saints up. Put a f****** positive spin rather than negative. Should have been; ”we are delighted by the calibre of candidate. It just goes to show that the hard work is paying off as we are being rightly recognised as a great football club to work for that has had lots of success in the past ten years. Candidates know they are coming to a great club and that is why we have quality applicants.” instead we get; ”why the f*** anyone would want to manage this club is beyond me. If you are a good manager f*** knows why you have applied here. Oh aye, and one more thing, if you are applying for this job you better to be willing to give up your days off and evenings to work in the community - dinny even submit a CV unless you are willing to work overtime for free. Right! Got it, son!!”

    Excuse my cynicism but why is it that every other fan can happily go to matches without any fuss or drama but these guys apparently can't? Exactly what are the unfair atrocities happening to them that for some reason don't seem to happen to anyone else?

    I was a Rangers fan as a kid. All my family were CB’s. Do you know what made me switch allegiances? Actually going to games regularly aged 7-8 with my Grandad. There’s no reason that most of these boys couldn’t have switched allegiances if they hadn’t been hounded out of the club.

    WAP Video Archive Now Live!

    Hi everyone, As previewed briefly last week, we've been working hard behind the scenes and are now ready to launch the WeArePerth Video Archive - www.weareperth.co.uk is the link! So far we have: - Highlights of (almost!) every game in the 17/18, 18/19 and 19/20 seasons. - Highlights and additional video content for every European game since 2012 - as well as highlights of the Saints v Monaco UEFA Cup games in 1999. - Highlights of every game in our 2014 Scottish Cup run as well as additional video content. - Classic matches from the McDiarmid Park and Muirton Park eras - Goal compilations, documentaries, interviews and other special features. All the highlights are archived with team lines and goalscorers and are fully searchable by year, competition, team or even by player. Comments are open and welcome on every game! There will be more content added as we go - with the intention being that we'll get back as far as we possibly can with season by season highlight videos that are in the public domain. I think there is almost a complete collection on YouTube back as far as maybe 2012/13 and fragmented stuff from before that. We may also, down the line, start adding the odd article here and there if the feeling takes us. This is also possibly dependent on how long we are all locked in our houses for! We're also looking for a bit of help. If you have video footage - even if it's on an old forgotten VHS - of a classic game from years ago, let us know. If you can point us in the direction of a video stashed away online in a hidden corner of the internet (Saints related obviously!), pass us the link. We'd be particularly keen to find any footage at all of the VPS Vaasa games in 1999, the 7-2 game against Dundee (There is a video of one of the goals on YouTube - surely somewhere the whole game exists!) or anything else along those lines. Finally, please give our Twitter and Facebook channels a like - https://twitter.com/wap1884 and https://www.facebook.com/WeArePerth/ - where we'll be posting links to new content when it is added and posting any other Saints related musings that come to mind. Thanks, as always, for your support! Jamie

    The big COVID-19 Shutdown

    The SG stuff is advisory because they have no devolved power to make it mandatory. What they can do and have done is effectively ban events where emergency services provision is required by withdrawing that provision. So top tier football is effectively banned, cinemas are not. The imminent UK ban will be mandatory, but it may not be universal, at least not yet. The confusion is partly because the UK government has not got its communications act in gear yet (the daily news conferences starting today will help greatly), and partly because the Scottish government is moving faster than the UK government, and organisations and the general public are moving much faster than both of them. It’s quite confusing. What is clear is that we’re all going to be required to isolate more and more (possibly gradually, possibly in big steps), and a full lockdown may only be a few weeks away. There is no rational reason whatsoever to believe the very restrictive measures on the continent will not be replicated here, and some reason to believe it will be worse here because the UK response has been slow. In this context, restarting football is just not a priority, and pretty soon even talking about it would be fairly ridiculous. Shit, it would appear, is real. Take care everybody.

    That’s doing a bit of a disservice to existing players. Our recovery started away to Kilmarnock on 4 December 19. That’s when Gordon and Booth began to play instead of Duffy and Tanser. We were undefeated in December. McCart has been doing well, but I’m not sure he’s the main reason. More of a team/squad effort.

    I listened to the interview in the car on the way to the game and I thought he spoke pragmatically about running a club with a small fan base. He's not the most charismatic or articulate speaker but he's got the t shirt from years of fighting our corner and he's just following his fathers's blueprint for susutainability. I can never understand the negativity he catches - he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. I hope he has his hand on he tiller for another 10 years.

    On behalf of the FCU To anyone interested in creating better Atmosphere at McDiarmid It is obvious that after Ayr away that we can provide a vocal backing for the team. There were numerous groups there who contributed to the noise. Let’s start filling sections with everyone together (fan groups/ pal groups, previous sections, previous ultra/ singing sections groups) and sit together in one area. Similar to the FCU section just not exclusive to the FCU. The fcu will be one of the groups within the section but would be good to create one big collective group who all create an atmosphere together home and away. Visual and vocal backing goes a long way on and off the park.

    Performance wasnt that bad, I thought. When you remember only Rangers and Aberdeen have scored and taken points at that ground, and theyve now played every club at home, then it hopefully puts some perspective to things. Livingston took the best chance of the match, while we got denied a stonewall penalty and MOH missed what was virtually an open goal. A different day we draw that, or win it, and everyone in here is raving about how great a result it is. May was fine as a lone striker, he set up a MOH chance and generally held the ball up well. Issue was the midfield, only O'Halloran seemed to get near him when he did have the ball, but again, we did have chances in this set up so if we win theres almost no complaints. Even game, settled by them taking their chance while we missed ours. Just one of those games.

    Saints Summer 2020 Transfers & Contracts

    Muzz has been sent off once in his time at Saints so he doesn't miss a lot of games due to suspension. He is a notoriously quick healer and has had one long term injury during his time at the club (2014, when it sadly cost him a Cup Final appearance)so doesn't miss a lot of games due to injury. He has been a fantastic servant to Saints and deserves more respect than your post affords him.

    Player of year.

    A big shout out to much maligned spoony. he really stepped up to the plate when the going was tough thus season. He will never win any player of the year but I don’t think we can underestimate how important he was this season. And that’s why Tommy keeps him in the team. Even when he is not playing well he never hides, always shows for the ball. l am not him or his dad! and he exasperates next at times but just thought he was worth a mention.

    Cash in bank when Steve became Chairman in 2011 was £1,095,904. 2012, £1.610m, 13, £1.304, 14, £1.266, 15, £2.072, 16, £2.066, 17, £2.652, 18, £1.979, 19, £ 2.170m Cash in bank is only 1 measurement but it does show a very healthy position over a sustained period. The only person responsible for player spending is Steve Brown. All signings approved by him so any overspend has to be down to his financial mismanagement. All major infrastructure projects have been completed, we have some very valuable playing staff and next year's turnover should be significantly up with increases prize money and return of at least 1 Dundee club. I have banged on about lack of communication from our Chairman, what I should have been advocating is a lack of upbeat, forward thinking, even happy messages none of which he seems capable off. We have too many playing passengers and that needs sorting but that will sort itself at the end of this season. Most other Spfl clubs would die for our financial position. Theres lots to look forward to as a saints fan. I just wish our Chairman would do the same.

    I think everyone is forgetting that Steve Brown declared early last year that he was frustrated that Kennedy's agent refused to entertain contract talks until a "later date". It was the same with Dre Wright who was still on the treatment table when Brown tried to open negotiations. It is frustrating but players come here find brilliant form and then look for a bigger stage where often they dont realise the form they displayed at St.Johnstone. It's something we should be proud of and display our bona fides when trying to encourage a player who we want to come here.

    I think that's incredibly harsh on those three players. Watt looked like a good player to me but faded, unfortunately. I'd have been happy to see him stay as I think he may well have come good for us again. May and MOH have both shown in the past that they're good players. I don't remember seeing many complaints on here when we brought MOH back, and I really don't see who else we would have got instead of May that would have been any better. For me the issue isn't signing those players - it's finding a system that gets the best out of them.
