    Beat Connah's Quay 2-0 their twitter feed saying our first was a stunning free kick. Anyone any detail on scorers, team etc. particularly how we lined up at back?
  4. I have to jump to Alec Gordon's defence. Not becasue he was part of our League Cup Final team but becasue the two OGs were by George MIller. It was at Tannadice against Dundee.
  5. Sleepless I wrote this for Scotsman in days gone by. May be of value. http://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/latest/memories-of-drew-rutherford-run-deep-a-local-legend-and-a-saint-1-685357
  6. Call 01738 459090 tickets still available on that number
  7. My father the late great Jack Cosgrove who died as a young man in a car crash near Alyth. He was brought up at 28 Ainslie at the Ice-Rink end and took me to my first matches. After his death i was looked after by my uncle Billy Cosgrove who was also a Saints diehard and passed away recently. I traveled with him to Monaco. His ashes are buried by the centre-line opposite his seat in East Stand. My mate's dad George Mason who was a turnstile operator at Muirton came with us to Monaco and also recently passed away. They will be with us heart and soul. RIP You showed us the way.
  8. Yahooo tickets arrived. Like Broon I had asked to be as far back as possible in "a noisy" section but got further forward than I would have chosen. But I agree you can't cherry-pick. So got Section 142 Rows F and E for a group of 20. Just happy to have tickets in my hand. I'm in the section where Steve McLean will throw is jersey when he gets his second COYS :laugh:
  9. Phil. The club were helpful with me. I was buying 20 adults and 3 children's tickets. They took me at my word and no need to prove age. Not sure if that helps you
  10. Tend to be an optimist at all times but a wee bit of anxiety creeps in for games like this. Hearts could have scored four goals against Motherwell and eventually lost 1-0. I think the 'poor wee suffering Hearts' mantra was being played out at Jnauray window to try to relax what was a fair punishment. I'd take three points by any means necessary.
  11. The Record are reporting online: ST JOHNSTONE have signed former Scotland Under-21 striker Michael O'Halloran on an 18-month contract. The 22-year-old has secured his early release from Bolton after failing to make a first-team appearance for Wanderers. But O'Halloran has top-team experience from loan spells with Sheffield United, Carlisle and Tranmere. St Johnstone, who are without forward Steven MacLean because of a knee injury, say O'Halloran is likely to feature in their squad to face Ross County in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/st-johnstone-sign-striker-michael-2984138 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_O%27Halloran_%28footballer%29 What does this mean for Stevie May - if anything? How good is he? All reasonable views invited
  12. BBC report just up: St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright hails resolute draw By Colin Moffat BBC Scotland at Easter Road Manager Tommy Wright hailed a "magnificent point" after St Johnstone played out a 0-0 draw with 10 men at Easter Road. Patrick Cregg was sent off on 30 minutes but Hibernian could not break down the well-organised visitors. "I'm delighted with their character and attitude after going down to 10 men," said Wright. "I could never doubt the players' honesty and we kept going right to the end." The draw keeps sixth-placed St Johnstone four points ahead of Hibs with a game in hand. “To play for an hour away from home with only 10 men is always difficult but I thought we limited them to very few chances” Tommy Wright St Johnstone manager Saints soaked up a lot of second-half pressure without too much difficulty although it took a great injury-time save from Alan Mannus to keep out a flashing header from James Collins. "To play for an hour away from home with only 10 men is always difficult but I thought we limited them to very few chances," explained Wright. "What a save it was but Alan has only had one difficult save to make." Cregg's dismissal for a foul on Paul Cairney came after a drab opening and Wright thought the red card was fair. "My initial reaction was that we can have no complaints," he said. "Ten years ago, it probably isn't even a yellow," he said. "But that's where we are and he was slightly over the ball. I thought it was a red at the time. "I just felt there was a foul on Frazer Wright just before it and if the referee sees that then we get away with it." It is the second game in a row that a Saints player has been sent off immediately after coming off the bench following Rory Fallon's rush of blood against Aberdeen. "Rory's was just silly and he's been told that," continued Wright. "Paddy is there to win the ball and win tackles an he's just on. "He was a split second late. There was no malice in it." While Wright was delighted with his side's defensive application in the second half, he was less than pleased with the way the Perth side had started in the Edinburgh rain. "I wasn't happy with the first 30 minutes," he said. "I couldn't really see that coming. We were miles off it and second to everything. "It probably took the sending off to give us a bit of a gee up. "We had to change our shape to get back into the game and we'll need to look at that but it's maybe a day for concentrating on how well we did after that." http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25481086
