  1. Mercato: Saint Johnstone will sign Eetu Vertainen Published on : August 2, 2021 (Updated August 2, 2021)/ By Sédric Maurace Assogba Published in the africafootunited website yesterday As we announced on July 26, Eetu Vertainen will sign in Saint Johnstone in the coming days. The information was confirmed by FC Ilves manager Jarkko Wiss who spoke out on the likely departure of his striker. 22-year-old Finnish Eetu Vertainen will definitely not be playing for Finnish club HJK Helsinki this season. Saint Johnstone will announce the striker's signing very soon. “Vertainen will continue his career in St Johnstone. All he needs is the work permit from the local authorities. Ilves manager Jarkko Wiss said. Eetu Vertainen has been self-isolating in Scotland since last week. He could still board the flight to Istanbul for St Johnstone's clash against Galatasaray. But first the Finn must have his papers before the next 24 hours.
  2. Finn Regan? There’s an article on the Daily Record on line version saying he is still making the journey from Shetland weekly.
  3. David McMillan for Dundalk in the 2nd leg of the European Thingy Cup to go through to the next round.
  4. Not particularly bothered about what our new strip(s) looks like. It’s the quality of the football when they are worn that’s the important thing.
  5. Ah, but is he the ‘finnished’ article?
  6. Taken from The National “St Johnstone are closing in on a deal for Finnish striker Eetu Vertainen, according to reports. The 22-year-old is currently plying his trade with top-flight outfit Ilves but Finland's media have reported that he has now travelled to Perth to sign a deal. Callum Davidson is keen to boost his attacking options after Guy Melamed left the club this summer after landing a historic cup double. Saints are gearing up for a European double header with Galatasaray next week in the Europa League and Vertainen could be thrown into the action. The U21 international has bagged four goals in 11 games this term and can also be utilised in midfield. Former HJK Helsinki attacker Vertainen played in a friendly against Rangers two years ago and impressed during a 3-2 defeat to Steven Gerrard's side”.
  7. Loads of Turks in Germany and The Netherlands so not much of a journey.
  8. Taken fro the official site St Johnstone are pleased to announce that Stevie Grieve has joined the club as the new Head of Recruitment. His expertise in analysis and coaching has taken him across the globe. From creating coaching curriculums in Canada to providing tactical analysis on Europe’s elite for Asian broadcasters. Grieve previously worked for Premiership outfit Dundee United as their Head of Analysis and Opposition Scouting. The lifelong Saint explained what he could bring to the club: “I’m quite organised. Without basic organisation you don’t really know what you’re looking for. “I’m quite good at identifying talents early from different markets. We need to try and be strong in the domestic markets. Try and find the best players in the Championship or the undervalued players of the Scottish Premier League. "I’ve got a good eye for talent in terms of what fits tactically into the squad and what we need to try and improve.” Grieve has learnt a lot from his time working in the football world and believes his experiences will be hugely beneficial for the club: “I think from a perspective of just coaching you can see what a player should be doing and how they might be progressing. “Sometimes it’s not about looking outside for players, it’s about understanding what’s in the building and how that player can grow and develop. “You have to have an eye to get talent ID right as many times as possible and see how a player might progress and grow in what you are trying to do. Then see if you can help them in the next stage of their career.”
  9. Bullet header according to Fotmob
  10. He got into double figures whilst he was there and after he left and played in Poland. Done very little since.
  11. I would prefer PSV, as Eindhoven is a great town with brilliant bars. Unfortunately it suffered considerable damage from the recent terrible floods. We have a decent relationship with the Dutch. Going into the cauldron of hate that is Galatasary might not be an experience our youngsters would appreciate.
