    The Real Saints got a reaction from Johnny B in Saints Summer 2020 Transfers & Contracts   
    Exactly what he’ll be signed for, I imagine. If Callum is opting to go primarily with a backline of five, we have no real back-up option for those three central defenders. With all due respect to Duffy, I think a loan spell at a lower-league club may benefit him at this moment in time. In which case, I think it’s a sensible move to bring someone like Ashcroft in.

    The Real Saints got a reaction from sleepless in Taxi for Tommy?   
    Yes, I find it strange when people try to justify it by arguing that he didn’t say ALL of these things. Even if he only said one of these things, that is one too many.

    three out of that six? Pick any three and the man is not fit to manage a football team.
    I always hate the prospect of something like this happening to us. How would I react if a manager (or player) I found repellent started with us? I feel sorry for decent United fans. Interested to hear Smarmy's view on this.

    What makes Cleland more experienced than Davidson? Callum made a step-up by leaving the Saints assistant manager position to be a first-team coach/assistant manager at Stoke City, before being personally headhunted by Scotland to join their coaching team, then getting another big move as assistant manager of Millwall. His CV is streets ahead of Cleland's.

    Disagree. I work in a retail job and we were specifically told that we can’t discuss anything related to our job on social media whilst on furlough, otherwise the company may lose its right to receive furlough pay. I imagine the same applies ten-fold for football clubs. Any furloughed player tweeting about Saints-related stuff could be quoted  by the local media and counted as ‘participating in media work’ for the club, as bizarre as that sounds. It is no coincidence that the only current players and staff members who have made a public statement about Tommy’s departure are the ones who have been kept off the furlough scheme ‘for any media activities’.

    I’d say quite the opposite. The club has been incredibly shrewd in its most recent managerial appointments, but risk averse? Absolutely not. Coyle (an assistant in the lower leagues), McInnes (next to nothing) and Lomas (a short spell at St Neot’s Town) had very little managerial experience prior to being appointed.
    Absolutely no chance that Cleland will be the next St. Johnstone manager, for what it’s worth.

    Sure, the Sun is a tabloid newspaper known for 'embellishing' the truth. But why anybody would think that they'd bother to embellish the truth in regards to St Johnstone FC, I genuinely have no clue. I hardly think that sensationalist stories relating to St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright are going to drastically improve their readership.

    It was an absolutely dreadful tackle which could have broken the guy's leg. People really shouldn't comment until they've seen the replay. Both red cards totally justified and considerably worse than any Aberdeen tackles.
    Edited: Wait, someone has posted the video. How could anyone possibly say that he 'literally didn't touch the player'?

    The Real Saints got a reaction from PauloPerth in Hibs v Saints 24 August 2019   
    In the first half, we were playing some sexy passing football without providing any cutting edge in the final third. We were as potent as a 90 year-old man. We addressed those issues in the second half and fully merited at least a draw. Matty Kennedy and Michael O'Halloran were playing at the level I'd hope and expect from them. A few sloppy passes aside, Ali McCann is developing into a mature and technically impressive young player. Liam Craig provided a lovely assist for MOH's goal. The defence looked more settled with the central pairing of Gordon and Kerr, although the former understandably took a wee while to warm into the game and made a couple of mistakes with the ball at his feet in the first half. Tanser and Duffy made very good use of the ball and I'd be happy to see the latter getting a run in the team, even if Foster eventually works his way back into contention with consistently good behaviour.
    With all of the negativity surrounding the club at the moment, the players deserve a lot of credit for showing immense character once again. Sure, there were negatives that I'm glossing over somewhat. It wasn't acceptable to lose our concentration and concede a goal so soon after scoring. I mainly feel positive today, but this doesn't change the situation. With a couple of decent signings, we could do very well. Without them, we could struggle over the course of a season. This is a very tight league and there's such a fine line between achieving top six and becoming embroiled in a dogfight near the bottom.
