  1. I get there could be issues with the pandemic however other Macron kits have been announced. Seems like pitch teamware are open or at least the website seems to let you order last seasons kit on sale. They have been advertising the Saints kit sale on their homepage for quite a while now. Certainly went into their sale during the lockdown.
  2. Rangers and Celtic have changed brands and they have set a date (today for one of them if I remember) for unveiling the new kit. I dont suppose they have any problems selling replicas. We are a completely different kind of club and should be doing everything we can to shift as many as possible. It could be contractual with the sponsorship etc. but just seems very Saints to be slow off the mark with stuff like this.
  3. Always the last when it comes to stuff like this. We'll probably be the last in the country to announce the new kit. These need to be out and in the shops earlier when the weather is decent. Might actually get more sales of replica kit that way.
  4. Im totally lost. I thought if Dundee voted yes then that was all leagues with enough yes votes to end the season including the Premier. Now there's talk of still playing it and if not then reconstruction. Will teams just have to play the rest of the season with what players they have left. Its not just about finding time to play out the season now, its time to get players fit again. Contracts etc will also be an issue. I get that its to get money to clubs in lower leagues now.
  5. They could just finish the season at the enf of this year and have a shorter season next year.
  6. How about increasing the size of the Scottish Premiership next year so no one gets relegated from the league they are in. Two go up. Playoff for second place in Championship etc.
  7. Hopefully we can pick up 3 points on Saturday before they cancel the rest of the Season. That way we'll have got top 6 after a dreadful start to the season. Im sure everyone is fed up of the topic but what do you think they would do if it did happen regarding places, relegation etc.
  8. Wasnt pretty. Livis tactis to slow the game down to snails pace and just long throws into the box. The ball was in the air for most of the game. Pretty horrible to watch. Ref ruined the game and made it very stop start with some very soft decisions. Their left back was fast so we didnt have much joy down the right wing until Drey's cross that lead to the goal. Great result and a fantastic turnaround this season.
  9. My work has us reporting if we are travelling anywhere or going to anything where there are going to be large numbers. Thankfully our crowds arent that big. We can always sit 3 seats apart.
  10. Only the old firm have lost less games than us the season. Considering where we were and the defending issues, great achievement. We need to get behind the team again at home against Livi.
  11. BBC reporting at its best saying we have lost ground on top six. Were we not 5 points behind 6th tonight and now we are 4. Still not far enough away from the bottom yet for my liking.
  12. Sounds like we did well to come away with a point. Not ideal but we are now only 4 away from top 6.
  13. Hendry got a little bit of a knock didnt he? Surely the only reason not to be on bench.
  14. Also think we need to use more of the squad. Crucial we win this game. We might have eyes on top 6 but not out of it at the bottom yet.
  15. Was it Spoony? I remember someones foot being kicked rather than the ball and thought it looked like a foul. Few poor decisions like that. Certainly remember a Celtic player getting a sore one and being down for ages after a clearance hit him.
  16. Problem is I think this was THE chance, getting to 80 mins. At the moment Celtic are the Team to beat in the cup and we came as close as anyone in recent times. I was thoroughly impressed by Saints. Took my young lad and I think he finally understood that although we didnt win that for our club it was a win of sorts. Usually I go home from games when we get beat feeling scunnered, not yesterday. Felt really proud to be a Saintee.
  17. Definitely times in the game where we had real momentum and had them under pressure. They totally looked beatable.

    Pitch

    Not to take anything away from our teams performance but I think the pitch condition benefitted us on Sunday. Stopped Celtic playing the slick football we are used to seeing.
  19. Draw in the league against Celtic is a good thing. A draw in the cup and a replay at Celtic Park would have boosted confidence but not something to relish. Today and getting to 80 mins was a big chance. They looked shakey at times today and beatable. Im sure Brown had Kane in a headlock at one point. Ref just stood and watched him.
  20. Not sure if this is the best place to post this but saw this on ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/392700538036 Its a 2019/20 home shirt. Its not an xxs ( I asked) but is a 34" inch chest shirt which would probably fit a kid in their low teens I imagine, 100% official. Its a 2nd because its missing the sponsor. If this had actually been an xxs then I would jump at it for the price for my young lad. Beats paying £35. It got no bids in the first period I watched it and so likely to get it for a decent price.
  21. Tanser played okay in my opinion. He had a hard task today and did ok. It was a good team performance and we should actually come away feeling really positive with what we saw.
  22. They had a spell in the 2nd half where we had lots of last gasp defending and terrific goalkeeping but never felt like we were being pummelled.
  23. Would we have wanted a replay though? This was our best chance today. Conditions suited us. We really had them shaken at points. Even after the goal we had the worried at the back.
  24. Disappointing goal to lose but hard to defend against. Ball whipped in, distraction caused by their player not getting anything on it and ball sailed in at the back. Maybe should have gone 3 up front before the goal. We wouldnt have wanted a replay. Getting to 80 mins and 0-0 was a great achievement so best chance was to try and snatch something towards the end.
