    Season Tickets

    What a surprise. Nightmare to get on to the website. This club is ridiculously amateur at points. You get on and no ticket option. Not sure how many more times as a paying customer I’ll allow poor service and keep giving them my money. But hey..... avoid a refund guys because we will invest in youth team. How about investing in a basic website that can cope with the obvious demand. 20 minutes to get on for first ticket- now attempting the second

    As good a choice as any. He knows the club, the players, the board and the league. He will have contacts down south and I’m sure there will be younger lads he could bring up on loan. He may also have a few players in mind from his time at Dunfermline who could make the step up. I actually think next season could be a very good season for us. Our squad is balanced and only needs tweaked with a couple additions, rivals are requiring players to take pay cuts which is bound to harm motivation, Fan base size will not be an issue at the start of the season I think the real test of Callum’s time here will be when he has to rebuild the squad. McCann is easily going to take the step up. I’d expect Jason and Callum is also get attention from down south if they continue to improve. Craig and Murray won’t last forever either. That’s a huge amount of talent to replace.

    Callum has the job- all agreed.

    I’d guess Davidson is Steve Browns first choice, but he will be on a decent wage and you’d think some sort of compo would be required to take him away from his current job. Possibly expenses we can’t quite afford just now with the lockdown issues.

    Whilst I agree with your point on complacency, I’d argue our last four appointments have been made on merit. The club clearly identified Owen Coyle as the man they wanted for the job. McInnes had clearly impressed the board as a leader and was deemed to have the qualities to be manager. Steve Lomas was an appointment totally out of the blue, but his interview clearly impressed and Tommy was identified as the man for the job straight away because of the work he did as assistant. I’m pretty sure if Steve Brown doesn’t see a potential manager in Cleland he won’t appoint him simply because he is the cheap option. I believe the club will be speaking to potential candidates on the quiet as we speak and if someone looks like they are a better option than Cleland, then they will get the job. For what it’s worth (and I have no inside information what so ever)- I believe we will make another appointment like Lomas. Someone no one has mentioned but has impressed with achievements at a lower level/coaching gig or someone that impresses in an interview. Based on a gut feeling Id give someone like David Weir an interview.

    I think our track record of managerial appointments merits that whoever is given the job deserves to be given the benefit of the doubt by our fans. Whether it’s Cleland, Davidson, Hughes, Kearney or Klopp- they have a hell of a manager to follow on from and will need as much support as possible.
  7. From what I heard at the time he joined- he was our biggest earner when he joined.
  8. It could well be that players are being offered short term deals for a few months to keep a wage coming in and give the new manager a chance to decide on them before the new season?

    I’ve always found is a strange decision. I’m sure Salford had joint-managers. Coyle and Hughes also did it at Falkirk for a time. I would think before any joint management appointment there would have to be clear lines on who made the final decision on each decision in a certain area.

    Any suggestions?

    Quite possibly, although he may not have been approached by anyone/a club he wanted to work with.

    I’m aware this won’t be a popular opinion but I think Peter Houston could be a very good option for us. Think he did a very good job at Dundee United whilst having his budget cut every season and then did well at Falkirk. International experience as well. We could do a lot worse.
  13. In some ways that was a better performance than on Saturday. There was a discipline to our shape and dare I say it looked like an understanding between our players, in particular our defence. Davidson was superb tonight and I thought he showed a discipline in his play that I've often criticised him for lacking. McCann continues to impress- he is so calm in possession for such a young, inexperienced lad. He rarely wastes a pass and for a smaller, lighter player he doesn't half win possession back alot. The lad for Hearts (no 7) was a decent player and he could dominate quite a few midfielders in this league but our lads just ended up too good for him tonight. Kerr and Duffy managed very well with their strike force.... Call him a carthorse all you want, but that big lad will cause problems for any centre-back that doesn't fancy a physical battle. Wright looked like he's picking up with game time and Spoony had a good game, giving Tanser plenty of protection and keeping their talented full-back relatively quiet. Only small gripe is I feel Matty's final ball and choice of pass could be better. A couple times May made some smart movement and Kennedy delayed the pass, went himself or chose a different option. What a difference two games make. Just what we needed. Biggest positive is it looks like we may have found our best starting XI and I'm pretty shocked that O Halloran and Holt aren't in it for now.
  14. It's hard to argue against this..Season after season I've always thought there was "better" starting options, but as a side we do tend to look more balanced with him in the team. When playing one up front I think it's important to have wider players that can cut inside as well. Spoony looks a better player when he's able to come inside from the left. I also think Kennedy would benefit from a run centrally. Leaves a fight between Wright and MOH for the right side.
  15. I reckon that's the best Saints performance I've seen from Spoony- he looked dangerous coming inside and was a real leader for the team today. McCann was outstanding and it's hard to believe how composed he is on the ball at just 19. At the start of the season I thought there was points he was a bit naive with runs off him, but even in the short time he's been in the team he's improved in that area. He barely wasted the ball the whole game, kept the play ticking over and looks like the kind of player that can go on to a higher level. Duffy a major concern for me and May didn't look as sharp as I would hope. Wright also was a bit rusty and isn't up to the standard he was at last season- will hopefully come with time. Great finish from Hendry at the end.
