    Not defending the guy, he broke the law the minute he brought the flare into the ground, you would have difficulty in law proving he intended to throw it but he must have at least intended to set it off.

    In the heat of the moment he threw a flare he just happened to have premeditatedly brought to the stadium with him?

    I'm just amazed he's done that. He was still highly regarded by Liverpool fans and that's now gone. He's said unflattering things about Everton in the past so the Toffees' fans will struggle to accept him.

    what a boorach that turned out to be. The incompetence of this is astounding. I expect it won't go away though. They'll regroup, replan, and come up with something else in eighteen months. Just hope they take the Bigot Brothers next time.

    I’d go for something that commemorated the SC win as a whole, using eg the date. May 17th Stand? The largest football stadium in the world is called the 1st of May Stadium, in North Korea. The National stadia in at least 5 African countries are named for various dates.
    Many of the stands named after people in the UK tend to commemorate folks who both did great things, and also managed to die very early and/or tragically. So if, say, Capn Dave or Saint Tommy had, God forbid, gone under a bus two weeks after the cup win (preferably whilst pushing a disabled child to safety). In the absence of that, I don’t think there’s any one individual who stood out far enough - it was a team effort. 
    I think it’s inevitable that a stand might be named, temporarily at least, for a sponsor in the future.

    sleepless reacted to John in Harry Curran   
    Hello guys. I thought i would provide an update since this thread was fairly recent.
    Harry is my uncle. He has obviously been retired a long time now. Since then hes done odd jobs such as the taxis and the likes. Hes currently labouring for a building firm and enjoying it.
    He talks fondly of his time in perth with the saints and he was a source of pride for me and my brother as young kids having a pro footballer in the family. The one time we went to perth to watch him the game was called of for weather i remember.
    I remember watching him play for Partick thistle in the inter toto cup in 1992 i think it was. They were beaten 2-1 and my uncle got the goal. That midfield goal threat as some have previously commented. Thistle in europe still makes me laugh.
    He loved his football. Even though wages for players at his level were not the best. I remember him telling me he would actually be out of pocket playing for some clubs. 
    He put a lot into his football and is still a very fit guy. Even if he likes a few more beers these days. 
    So yeh thats oor Harry still football daft and a good laugh.
     
    All the best to the saints.

    I would much rather have both Dundee clubs, plus ICT and the staggies in the league than the west coast teams. Dunfermline too. And the Binos but that will never happen, it seems.

    What they want is Fergie back. They''re still living in that early eighties bubble when they were a force in Europe, not just Scotland. They just can't see that was a complete one-off.

    Congratulations Saints! 
    I don't come on here very often, being a Stoke fan, but I've always kept an eye on Saints results since living in Perth throughout the 90s and going to a good few Saints games home and away, including the last league cup final in 98 and Monaco home and away after that. Just another gloryhunter!
    Well done on completing the cup set, bit annoyed you couldn't have done it when I was up there to join in!
    Such a shame the pubs are closed, but enjoy your celebratory swallies anyway. Just the league left

    If you go to the Premier Online website it is listed as live but no sign of it after you log in - I assume it will just appear at 13:00 as advertised.
