    sleepless got a reaction from Lochwinnochsaintee in My new novel coming soon   
    yes, totally agree. It was her treatment that really got me interested in writing it.
    Cuddies Strip is still there and you can walk it today. Go through the tunnel beneath the motorway and you're on it. I've seen the police photos of the crime scene, and it doesn't look any different now than it did then.

    sleepless got a reaction from garydavidson in Taxi for Tommy?   
    three out of that six? Pick any three and the man is not fit to manage a football team.
    I always hate the prospect of something like this happening to us. How would I react if a manager (or player) I found repellent started with us? I feel sorry for decent United fans. Interested to hear Smarmy's view on this.

    Yes, I find it strange when people try to justify it by arguing that he didn’t say ALL of these things. Even if he only said one of these things, that is one too many.

    After his effort at Dutch, I wonder if McClaren will have a bash at the Dundee accent

    An entry "Dundee United 2020" has appeared on McClaren's Wikipedia page.  Does this mean anything or are they simply preparing in case he is appointed?

    Thanks to Chips for posting this. I got really interested in this story and researched it in the Archives in Edinburgh and in the local papers. I've written a novel based on the story which will be published by Ringwood Publishing later this year.

    Yep, and also, if Saints consider him to be right for the job after 12 years of him working for us, I'd say that's a more valid judgement than one formed during a one-off job interview.

    I don't think it's a good idea.
    We'll be at an early stage with a new manager, who's trying to bond with the fans and us with him. It wouldn't be great for the new guy to have the whole stadium bouncing and shouting Tommy's name.
    The ghost of the one who went before, when they went out on a high, is a really difficult thing to manage. Think Man U with both Matt Busby and Fergie. Best for a clean break entirely.

    Totally get where you are coming from..
    Starting in August....let's hope and pray.
    We miss Saints.
    This set in a context when we are not working, where our children are not at school, when rich football clubs demand tax payers help them. Profit and shareholders fly above us like eagles as our citizens die.  Priorities in Western capitalist nations are built on sand.
    To achieve a return to football in August requires pragmatic solutions. This set amongst the current situation we fnd ourselves in amidst this appalling virus.  
    Football is just secondary at the moment, but challenging questions require to be addressed in amongst an economic capitalist system built on profit and exploitation whilst nurses, shop workers, bus drivers etc risk their lives where some people can work from home and order food online.
    Life, society and football must change.

    I may we’ll be in a minority of one but I couldn’t care any less about the “Champions” League, or internationals. Same teams, same players, year after year.  That’s fine if you like it but I am completely disconnected from that scene in a way I’m not when I follow St Johnstone.
    Given that it’s all about money I can see their priority. Old firm type control but on a bigger scale.
