    blueheaven got a reaction from gingermunkie in Papa Johns Pizza!   
    We were going to give Papa John's a try a couple of nights ago and were a bit horrified by the prices TBH. Most of the pizzas cost around £19-£20 by the time you've customised them to what you want, and they don't even look particularly nice (I generally think chains like this don't do pizza very well, but we were up for giving them a go). They're also very vague on their menu about what the different pizza sizes are.
    We ended up ordering from The Italian Corner instead and got really nice proper Italian-style pizzas for half of that price.

    Crawford's out for a couple of weeks I believe. It's also been reported this week that MOH and Booth both have "niggles" but will hopefully be OK. Spoony played 64 minutes for Canada last night so guess there's a chance he'll be rested. Sounds like Gordon, Bryson and Davidson are all close to playing but I reckon they'll be on the bench unless injuries mean they have to come in.
    Personally I think we'll go for a similar line-up as the Dundee game, but with MacPherson in for Crawford and McCart (assuming his suspension's over?) in for Dendoncker. That would be:
    ___________________Clark
    _________Rooney Ambrose McCart
    MOH ____________Craig ___________Booth
    ______MacPherson ______Wotherspoon
    ______________Kane___ May

    Almost on topic (actually not on topic at all, but feck all else is happening) is the amusing story that Liechtenstein and Haiti both designed and adopted, independently and by chance, exactly the same National flag. Nobody noticed until the 1936 Olympics. Liechtenstein heroically volunteered to change theirs by adding a crown.

    Tbf, he was slated to start against a minnow in a friendly as a thank you, but pulled out injured, and was dropped from the squad shortly afterwards. Remember being gutted for him.

    Not sure about that. He basically plays the game at walking pace - I can't see him making the charging runs forward that Rooney/Muller/Brown (and previously Kerr) are able to make from that position.

    No idea if there's a clause to trigger an extra year or not.

    blueheaven got a reaction from SaintJet in Zander   
    I don't think the reaction is just about this one instance of Zander being left out. It's about year after year of seeing top-performing Saints players being left out. You're maybe right about Kelly v Clark being a toss-up, but why does it always have to be the St Johnstone player who loses the toss-up?
    I have absolutely no doubt that there's a long-running unconscious bias against St Johnstone players that stretches back through numerous Scotland managers. It comes from exactly the same place as "Perth's not a football town" and "St Johnstone are in a relegation battle every season".

    As many of you will have seen on St Johnstone’s Facebook page my 5 year old nephew Ryan done a lap around the Easter Road pitch at half time on Sunday
    He is raising money for Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity who have looked after him since he was born and will look after him in the future
    He was supposed to run 1km in the junior Edinburgh marathon last year but because of the lockdowns it got cancelled a couple of times so it was arranged that he could do it at Easter Road
    In the end he ended up walking around instead of running as he was giving everyone high-fives around the pitch and people were handing him money!
    The whole family would like to say a massive thank you to all the St Johnstone fans who clapped him as he passed the away section and handed money to him. Between both sets of fans he walked away with £177. He’s been high as a kite ever since
    We’d also like to thank St Johnstone Football Club who advertised his fundraiser on Monday and to everyone who has donated online since

    blueheaven got a reaction from gingermunkie in Ali McCann - what will he sell for predictions?   
    I could see your point if he'd been there for six months, but it's only been a few weeks. He's going to have to prove he's better than their starters, just like Vertainen is having to do here, for example. I find it really strange that anyone would have expected him to walk straight into their starting line-up.
    I've no idea what the situation is with Christie but he's a far more experienced player than McCann, and perhaps he was arriving at Bournemouth at a time where they desperately needed someone in his position.

    The only surprise is that fans are surprised that Zander has been dropped for a fifth rated keeper at Rangers who would have been sent off in his last 2 games if he was playing for any other club.

    I actually would. We've had plenty of big refereeing errors go against us in the past, but I still feel that it's part of the game and I can't stand what VAR has done to matches down south.

    Referees getting it wrong is part of the fun, it adds extra spice to the game. I think VAR is one of the worst things that has happened to football in recent years. It's another way of separating the 'top leagues' from the lower ones, and turns the game - with all its mistakes and idiosyncrasies - into a science, bland and boring.
