    I didn't blame mannus for the goals on Tuesday.  The new lad was all over the place and Ando should have covered but ultimately if the defence was untouched we wouldn't have conceded either goal.

    Please Ghostie, don't shout at our full back to pick up their wide player when he's 5yards from the touchline and the ball is at the other side of the pitch. Apart from that continue to shout any random thought that comes into your head.

    Win, Win for me. In vote and Brit Nat's who told us we were too wee, too poor & too stupid to have our own independence will be put back in their box. Out vote and indyref2 resulting in independence will be just around the corner.

    It will be a great opportunity to show all the Safety/security/polis/ government, Maggie Thatcher etc etc. That it is possible for people to sit together and watch a football match even if they are not shouting for the same team. It would probably be a bigger statement than SB's one.

    Dear Mr Doncaster
    As a lifelong St Johnstone, and Scottish Football supporter, of over 50 years, I am sad to say that I am so disgusted with the total contempt that has been shown by your organisation, towards St Johnstone and their supporters in the run up to the Scottish League Cup Semi Final against Hibernian, that I am taking the decision to put my complaint in writing to you. 
    I do not doubt that tasks of administering Scottish Football is not an easy one, but the actions of your organisation on this occasion are nothing short of shambolic and embarrassing and are deserving of a full explanation, and an unreserved public apology acknowledging the shortcomings of your organisation in this whole afair.
    There are two particular areas that I intend to focus on and would be grateful if any response was to cover both issues. These issues are;
     1) The mock up of a contracted St Johnstone player, Michael O'Halloran, in a Rangers strip, following intense media speculation in relation to a possible transfer. I acknowledge that this mock up photograph has since been removed from your site and your initial response was that it was intended to be light hearted. I can assure you that I did not find this in the least bit funny, rather I found it quite offensive. I would ask whose ultimate decision was it to approve this publication of your website? Your actions have only served to further intensify the media speculation regarding this player and can only have been detrimental to the player and the club in the run up to such an important match.
    2) When Tynecastle Park was identified as the venue for the St Johnstone v Hibernian game, and following initial discussions with the relevant Clubs, and, I assume, Police Scotland, and the relevant Security officers, you provided the following press release regarding allocation of tickets and segregation;

    "St Johnstone Support
    Roseburn Stand - Adults £20.00, Under-16s £5.00
    Roseburn Stand Wheelchair Users - Adults £10.00, Under-16s £3.00
    It has been agreed that this allocation may increase if there is a demand for tickets. A further allocation would take St Johnstone supporters into the Main Stand Block N Upper. If this is not required by St Johnstone then this area will be allocated to Hibernian."
    St Johnstone did indeed sell all of their tickets within a very short space of time and, as I understand, requested a further allocation of tickets prior to the 10th of January. 
    I would appreciate if you could provide a clear answer to each of the following points;
    a. Were the police and security officers involved in your initial discussions prior to your announcement regarding segregation and ticketing arrangements, and, if so, what advice did they provide?
    b. What was the size of allocation requested by each of the clubs at the initial planning meetings?
    c. Given that fans from opposing clubs shared a stand at the same stadium in a previous League Cup Semi Final, why has the position now changed?
    d. Do you consider it fair that not only do Hibs have a supporter ratio of almost 4:1 compared with St Johnstone for a National Cup Semi Final, it is also the fact that St Johnstone supporters will be outnumbered by sponsors complimentary spectators?
    e. Was your decision based, in any way, on possible increased policing costs to maintain segregation?
    f: Why was no final decision made until 5 days before the match?
    g: Why was the press release confirming no further tickets would be released to St Johnstone not accompanied by an apology?
    Such is the state of Scottish Football under your stewardship, that many clubs are struggling financially and you should be doing all you can to further the game as a spectacle. St Johnstone, may be a relatively small club but they are well run and are striving to increase their support base. Actions, such as those taken by you, in the lead up to this match will have a detrimental effect on the Club's efforts.
    As you will no doubt be aware, the demand for tickets from St Johnstone supporter's has outweighed the supply made available by you and has left a large number of angry and disgruntled supporters, who merely wish to support their team. 
    As The CEO of the SPFL, I believe that you need to accept some personal responsibility for this whole sorry state of affairs, which has shown your organisation to have a complete disregard for football supporters, without which your member clubs cannot survived, as well as a blatant lack of integrity towards one of its member clubs.
    I look forward to your response

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^This 100%.
     
    If he goes he goes. Footballers, good and bad, come and go. I would rather he went to a non Scottish based club, but the facts are simple, St.Johnstone as a club cannot survive , let alone flourish, if we do not move assets on for decent sums of money. If he goes to Sevco then so be it. As long as we get  what our chairman  thinks is good value AND the payment terms are solid ( COD if it's Sevco) then we should accept it. With a core support like we have, balancing the books and having a full time team for the foreseeable future can only be secured by selling players. The Broons have served us well and are hardly idiots when it comes to business. We have a well run financial stable club, we now have a Scottish Cup in our honour list, we have made Europe 4 seasons in a row , we have beaten some very decent European opposition and we are about to play yet ANOTHER cup semi.  FFS guys  get yer heads oot of yer arses.

    Great player for us.  Scottish cup winner. Scored a vital goal in the quarters against Raith and shored up the defense in the final coming on as a late sub.
    Whatever anyone says he was part of a fantastic squad of players that won our first major trophy in over 125 years.
     When you look back at some of the great players to put on the royal blue top that didn't even get past the semi final stage, never mind win it.  
    Legends every one!!!!

    The way the ticket distribution has been handled is an embarrassment, another 500 tickets for Saints and I don't think even the Hibs fans would have complained. My main gripe with the SPFL is the lack of any decision, they knew all the facts regarding segregation when the venue was announced but have still to make a final decision.
    Their handling of the situation has been a shambles.
