  1. Thought the team looked very sharp tonight, with everyone very well drilled in their roles in the side- no matter who we get in Europe, we will be no Push over. The team lost its shape a little with the large amounts of subs later in the second half, but Devine was very impressive and I think he will add some threat down the left hand side- he was more than happy to press on, but did very well defensively. The lad from Milwall also looked decent and took plenty direction from Liam. Atmosphere was pretty muted, but it was just fantastic to be back in the park and getting the chance to watch a special set of players that have given the club so much.
  2. Don't mind it. Seen worse.
  3. Got a call from the office yesterday and ticket bought in 2 minutes. Heres hoping we are in the stadium in a few weeks time.
  4. Anyone else still having issues? Tried several times with no success. E-mailed club a couple days ago and no reply. Phoned the club today and the girl on desk saying staff over run with issues (and staff numbers being low due to covid.) Hope this doesn't put people off buying a new season ticket when the time comes. The regulars will wait and try to sort it out, but could well put off a newbie that decides just to "pay at the gate" and before you know it feel good factor has gone down and so has their appetite to go to games.
  5. Everyone’s starting XI? I’ve a suspicion we will go 3-4-3 as opposed to 3-5-2. Defence picks itself. Hope McCann and Craig start this one. Spoony a definite. I think he will go with Kane up top and whilst I expect Middleton to be in contention for the final spot for some reason I’ve got this feeling MOH will start. Obviously we all want to see Murray get some game time, but I just think we keep possession better when it’s either Craig or Bryson beside McCann. Super sub appearance for me.
  6. I think our transfer plans will change quite significantly if we win the cup on Sunday. I don’t think you can expect a squad of the current size to play European football without it having an effect on domestic football, it’s very unlikely we can go into the season with only three out and out centre backs for a start. I’d expect the squad size to increase by 2/3 as well as replacing any that leave.
  7. Supposedly both clubs working off a figure of 900 fans each as it stands.
  8. Exactly this. If I miss out to a fellow season ticket holder then so be it. If it became clear it was a select few or a general sale/lucky dip it would be the last season ticket I ever purchase.
  9. Disagree with that- to be at the game in person would be hugely special to me anyway and if there was say 2000 Saintees allowed in a fine reward for the season ticket holders that backed the club this year.
  10. Put our best side out for both games. Give ourselves as much chance as possible of a result in either game.
  11. Whilst I understand your point there is a reason our most successful manager ever and now our new gaffer have both had him work his way into their plans when it looked initially he wasn’t going to get much game time. If we have an alternative option, in our price budget that will bag 12+ goals and match what Kane brings to the team, then I’d be happy to see the club wish him all the best and move on. I think that seems very unlikely.
  12. I think we need to use the squad for this one to match the obvious energy Hamilton will put into the game. I’d go with the same back line, but change to the two upfront and give a couple bodies a rest. Once again Kane ran himself into the ground- I’d give him a wee rest bring in both Melamed and May for him and Conway. Liam had a cracking game on Sunday and Id be tempted to keep him in there- but I’d probably give Bryson the nod for this one. Would also like to see Gilmour given a little bit of game time in the second half if possible.
  13. Good on him- he did a great job for us and I’d say he moved on at the right time for both him and the club. He clearly wanted a change and isn’t probably quite surprised a “bigger club” hasn’t come calling. Here’s hoping he does a good job for Kilmarnock and comes one place below us in the league.
  14. The club’s prudence could pay off very well here. It can see us through this nightmare situation, whilst the loan is used on non footballing matters to make long-term profit. Property/land could be a very good option- as could expanding into business services that are not effected by lockdown restrictions.
  15. I actually think with the right players the formation could work- the issue is we currently don’t have the players to match the system. My general issues with the formation just now are that our wing-backs and the two players wider than the striker rarely get into “dangerous” positions. I rated McNamara but thought he often didn’t add much attacking threat from wide. The formation looks a lot better when someone like Rooney commits to get down the line and even trying to make inroads into the box (like he did at Hampden). Teams seem fine with allowing us to play the ball into the deeper wider positions knowing it’s rare Conway or co will get in a position to play a dangerous cross and even if he did your looking at a loan striker in the box with limited aerial presence. Personally for me I’d prefer to see us go with two upfront and Spoony with a bit of a free role behind depending when at home. Spoony grafts hard and I’d trust him to slot back into a deeper position to cover if one of the wing-backs is caught out further forward and someone needs to come across to cover. Would also allow Kane an opportunity to link up with someone a bit closer rather than just being a “first line of defence”.
