    Cagey reacted to Linky in Utd v Saints   
    It seems from the set-up yesterday that the front three are:
                                             Hendry/Kane
    Wotherspoon/May                                        MOH/Conway
     
    Not sure why an extra striker would be needed, given that Olaofe can supposedly play in all three positions too.

    You gotta appeal to the “them” when you sign. I’d be telling them “I’ve always been a Rangers/Celtic fan, this is a moment I’ve always dreamt of” just to get off on the right foot!

    Craig MoM for me. Spoony & Craig ,oldest men on park & probably covered more ground than anyone else.
    Played better with 10 as Mikey pass a passenger. Think Callum asked too much of him. Mikey's game is stay wide,head down & skin full back. He is not the smartest cookie.

    I was more making the point that they more or less rubbished the team they were still signed for. Also highlighting the number of players whose career has stalled after signing for OF.
    Yes I would join a company that offered me the best financial package. I would probably even leave Saints for a good deal as well but that was not the point I was making.

    Early days but I'm not convinced 3-4-3 is the way forward. No doubt a big reason CD wants to play it is to fit MOH in from the start. Lets be honest, he's pretty ineffective more often than not.
    I prefer a front two. it worked well last season as they close down as a pair.
    Decent point today under the circumstances.

    Exactly. I also think their demands seems crazy.
    Then, Anne Budge has lost the plot.
    She's lost every vote and now she's lost her appeal.
    Only money they'll get is the parachute payment given to teams relegated.

    Can't imagine Saints selling enough to make a lot of money even if they did keep the proceeds.

    Think it was called the Viagra trophy or something like that. It was for beating Lyon or some pre season game .

    No the Club are employing Kirsten because for years folk have said that you need someone at the helm full time. Something we have not had since Stuart Duff was in post and received about as much moaning about him as Kirsten and Steve do. 
    Your comments prove that it is indeed a thankless task and  proves that Steve does indeed have a point.

    Nope.
    You have to "register" your kits with the authorities months before the season starts, by emailing them a photo/sketch. 
    You can only wear "registered" kits in league games.
    Presumably last seasons kits will forever be registered so as long as we update the font/numbers to the new style then they'd be fine. Only issue would be sponsors, but if we've kept the same sponsorship deals, then there's no issues.

    There seems to be some skulduggery afoot with some friendlies.
    Aberdeen had agreed to play at home to Dundee United last week, but United ended up cancelling so they could play Livingston at home instead. Hibs cancelled a friendly away to County yesterday, and I'm sure Kilmarnock pulled out of one two weeks ago against someone aswell.
    Just be a case of waiting and seeing what actually happens I think.

    Thought it was just to be in EPL but seems to be in the cup as well. Initially it was effective but the longer it goes on the more it looks like tokenism.

    Holt wasn’t bad & I agree McCann stopped him really being a first team player. Butcher looked better in the short time he was with us.

    Agree. Callum will assess him & make the decision. If he is still fit & anything remotely like he was a couple of seasons ago then he is the kind of player we need.

    I'd be interested to hear about how big a difference the move to McDiarmid Park made to the players. How big a part did that play in us winning the league that season? I was just a kid at the time but it seemed to give the whole club a massive boost, and as I remember it we were one of the few part-time clubs in the division yet we still won the title.
    Also - just how good was Sergei Baltacha to play alongside? Was he the best player he played with?
    By the way, I've been using my lockdown time to catch up on a lot of your old episodes and really enjoying them. Just listened to the Phizzy Scott one, thought he came across very well. Quite sad to hear that he was more or less forced out of Saints and treated fairly badly towards the end, as I don't think that was something I was aware of at the time.

    I think top photo is John Robertson. Bottom may be a trialist but don't think so we he looks familiar. May be Ballantine or Hamilton.
    Clean sheet will do fine for a friendly.
