    Kane incident, looked blatant to me at the time, looks worse on the highlights. No surprise Sportscene ignore it.

    As a season ticket holder who didn't go yesterday, I genuinely didn't feel like I missed out tbh. I couldn't make it, but I suspect there will have been a few put off by the absolute horror show of our last home game. Performances aside, I think the problem is more fundamental, the whole set up is incredibly stale. Yes there is good stuff for kids, but not sure that entices many new fans. Going to McD is absolutely no different than it was 20 years ago.
    Bizarrely,  the issue with saints is that there is no need for fans to turn up. We're not in a relegation battle, pushing for an honour not fighting for the club's survival. It's all just a bit meh!
    What would be interesting is to know how many different saints fans attend each season. Is it c4,000 different fans picking and choosing games or the same 2,000 every week? I suspect the club has no idea tbh.

    Rather give out free tickets to Saints supporters in schools, college etc rather than give the seats over to the Weggies.
    Agree with "The Yellow Box" re players response.
    Incentive should be to beat them and progress into the next round rather than lets maximise income cause we are going out.
    There defence will not be able to cope with Tony Watt.

    Simple truth is that we need to sign a central midfielder, anyone can see that, but why do we have so many misfiekders here who cannot effectively play there. Wotherspoon, Craig and Alston aren't the answer and aren't 1st or even 2nd choice wide men, so do we need all of them? Spoony and Alston don't show enough for me to merrit being here, new contract or not.
    If we cannot afford someone, then why not? Our crowds are pish and the club should take the blame for being totally inept at marketing, but we knew that, we knew in May we needed a midfielder, so to be at this stage talking of putting one of our promising defenders in there is ridiculous.

    That is just bullshit as far as I'm concerned, if so Tommy has majorly ****ed up, priority one was a center midfielder, there is no argument to be had on that. 
    Pointless getting wingers and strikers if we can't get the ball effectively to them.
    I would get rid of Alston, Craig, wotherspoon and to be honest scougal, who I thought was bought for that position. I honestly fail to see where the latter fits into any effective formation we play.

    Tommy needs to make changes before it's too late, but I say give him until mid March and if he hasn't seen the changes needed and take action, if results continue this way then I would go with Callum in charge with Cleland as number 2. 

    The main problems come from a obvious lack of investment from the board, I might be wrong but did the board not decide to invest in the youth development when Stevenson came back? that's 2012. We then saw Stevie May impress and thought this was definitely the way to go instead of opting to buy (like we ever do that) or paying signing fees with players and agents? It also lets us sell players at a profit to keep the figures nice and healthy.

    We've seen players like Comrie, Gordon and Kerr show signs of being good enough lately but not be given a run in the first team. We're struggling to score goals but we have Hendry in reserve who's apparently impressing. I don't care how old you are, if you're good enough then give them a chance.

    We've insisted in keeping faith with the some players since we won the cup, Macca should have gone a long time ago, Muzz isn't the player we thought he'd be due to injuries but must be one of the highest earners right? Ando is loyal but showing big signs of his best days seriously being behind him, Wotherspoon is inconsistent but has flashes of brilliance, Millar who is probably our best midfielder is for some reason not a favourite with the manager. Our goalkeeper position isn't even concrete anymore, Mannus' performances started to drop straight after winning the cup and Zander can be iffy at times.

    Then we have a crafty wee player like Scougall who arrived showing having a nice footballing brain with some creative sparks, but it's like he's been shackled by management and our style of play. Foster should be long gone, his disciplinary record in his short time is poor and his attitude towards fans at times.

    What a patronising view. Everyone under the age of 30 isn't just some dense **** who thinks we should be challenging for the title every season. 
    This "purple patch" has lasted the best part of a decade, and if the club manages the next few windows correctly it'll continue. I've no idea why people constantly bring up what happened twenty years ago as of that's our natural place. Football is a different game to the one on the 70s/80s, and since that period we've predominantly been a top half team in the top flight.

    mad saints fan got a reaction from SaintJet in Time for Tommy to go?   
    Sorry did I miss the part where we're in a relegation battle and might be doomed for the championship? cause that is the only time we should be looking at getting rid of Tommy right now. Yes he has a big problem with a lack of goalscorers and he acknowledges that. It's not just down to him but the entire coaching staff and the players and in probably most importantly...the board and Mr Brown. It's no secret we have one of the strictest owners when it comes to loosening the purse strings but sure now is the time to be looking at that for just one signing. It was obvious to us all during the summer that we needed a goalscorer and we struggled to get anyone and it looks like we just settled for what we could easily get, rather than someone we knew would work.

    If Brown says to him he wont give him money to spend, then we surely have to be looking at giving the young lads a try? and by that I don't mean 20 minutes as a sub or one start and if they don't bag a goal, then straight back to the development squad. Give a lad a run of 4 or 5 games with Macca or Cummins (dunno why you'd pick him though) and see if there are signs of a partnership developing.

    We should still stay up. The problem is that Tommy has not been backed financially by Brown. SB is at the root of the problem and not Tommy.

    The mosque isn't a problem for us locals, it's just an upgrade for the mosque on the Glasgow road which is basically a small flat not big enough for the muslim population of Perth. The only issue was the racists who came to Perth to oppose the mosque. They tried to say it was standing up for locals who's council went behind their backs in approving the mosque. Their white power flags said different.

    All very alarmist and hysterical mate.  96% of the Scottish population are white British/Scottish, you think your ethnicity is under threat? Because a couple of dozen Muslims in Perth have a room to pray in?  
     
    Why not test your argument?  Put a poll on here for those who think there should be a mosque in Perth and see if '95%' share your views.

    I get the feeling you're one of those people who says we're all one race, the human race. Therefore racism doesn't exist.

    The term racism has changed over the years but it has a broad meaning these days with various forms of racism. Some including religion, ethnicity, nationality and communities of people and more.

    Do I really have to educate you? really? please pick up a book or how about do some research on the internet, you know the thing you use to come on here...it's a wonderful place full of information!
