    sleepless got a reaction from Cagerf in Saints v Kilmarnock 31 August 2019   
    Expect Drey could be on the bench as a statement of intent, and to get him back integrated with the first team, but agree it's unlikely he'll play.
    Difficult one to call. I think it's either going to be a cagey affair, one goal in it, or we're going to hit four or five. Going right back to the Cup game against QOS last year (Watt and Kennedy excellent) I've had the feeling we have the ability to blow teams away. Time and time again last season we seemed to lose confidence and tried to defend leads. But in the last couple of games Matty and MOH have been starting to do some real damage. Danny on the rampage as well, and maybe a striker (???) and we could be the real deal.
    So, 4-0 Saints

    Must admit, I was hoping Clark would be a breath of fresh air, but already going down the route of bringing in players with virtually no game time, players from the third tier of English football and guys who have let the team down several times in the past.

    He will sign next week, with McMillan's contract being ended by mutual consent.
    The talk of a loan deal is a non starter, but serves a purpose that it indicates that Saints are still interested in May. Don't think for a second that Tommy doesn't use the media when he needs to. 
    Would expect Anderson to go too, depending on Gordon showing he has fully recovered from injury.
    Tommy will also need to do a repair job on Kane's confidence. Feel for Kane as when he came back from QOS, he looked full of confidence and hungry, but that seems to of evaporated over time. He is suffering from not having a proven goalscorer alongside him.

    Was at this, young lads did well on a horrible wet night.
    I suspect the plan was to give Liam Gordon 70 mins and it was more a priority to not risk him for longer than it was try win the game as he looked good and I don’t think was injured or anything when he came off. The defence didn’t look as good once he came off and no doubt it influenced the game.

    hell's teeth, it's meant to be the difference in thinking the glass is half empty or half full.
    There's folks on here who think it's the glass is half empty or it's smashed into a million pieces on the floor and all the drink is draining into the gutter.
    This is a pre-season friendly when the players work themselves back to match fitness after five or six weeks away. And Ando is a club legend and a great player, but he didn't play with us last season so Tommy will not have seen much of him. He has to assess whether the guy still has what it takes. So of course he has to get game time. There's absolutely no way you can deduce from that the idea that he is now first choice.
    Tommy's been doing this a wee while now. He probably has a fair idea what he's doing.

    I can't help thinking that aching for Stevie to come back is partly a desire to return to the glory of 2014. But life's not like that. There's talk on here about how few goals our strikers scored last year. How many more than that tally has Stevie scored in the past five years? I know he was out for a year, but he's been fit for a long time now, and still not banging in goals.
