    Said it a day or so ago. Tactical defeat. Puts United our I think. Hahaha. Seriously though, feckin shite. Do any of the players give a flying feck?
  2. It’s been well documented in the press May had negotiated the release from the remainder of the 2 years on his contract. Thus handing his notice in and making himself unemployed. Makes the fact all the mysterious things going on seem bemusing considering he won’t have a job. TW said Stevie would be very disappointed with the dead souring so gives an indication someone’s buggered it up for him and it ain’t Saints.
  3. If May sacks Vine for gross misconduct and for misrepresenting him if some rumours are to be believed, Would we still offer the contract that appeared to initially be acceptable?
  4. Can Madis play up front? ive been trawling this site this morning. Tommy, if your reading which I know your not, a few decent guys here. Pie in the sky but Dennis Eckert looks like a good shout. Or Nicolas Reneiro. budget is there if it were a FIFA game
  5. Do you think there will be a fan backlash if that’s the case and he does join us? I was happy at his return and my wee lad was delighted to see May in the Saints shirt again. My wee lad has said he’s not happy if he comes back as he should always want to play for his team. We seem to be the only club in Scotland who get caught up in all this shite. I fear for the start of the season with no goal scorer.
  6. Seems they are putting clubs against each other in some sort of bidding war. No doubt the agents spoken to Dundee after a verbal agreement, if what’s rumoured is correct, said Saints are offering this as a deal what you got? Come back to us wanting more. It’s a business transaction and do we want to be held or pissed around on this? It’s hugely evident, and I’m sure most would agree, if May wanted to be back to restart his career after a shitty period of playing out of position for years at clubs who have been paying him a hell of a lot then he’d be back. If he’s after money, stay at Aberdeen, piss your career up the wall. If he’s on even £4K a week at Aberdeen it’s over £500k without bonuses for the two years left. He could be on more. I look at players of how well they done over a career not how much they made. Deal dead in the water quote tells me the club have told them to bugger off and go elsewhere then if they want the bigger package.

    Looking at the tables, we should let Forfar beat us. Potentially that knocks United out the cup and potentially Dundee if they don't get a win v ICT on Saturday. Do we play for ourselves or put both Dundee clubs out the cup as 4 of the best runners ups?
  8. Being held to ransom over the salary perhaps. I’m no signing unless I get that, well we can offer that, well I want that, ok then go there. Hmmm.
  9. Gretna had 13pts but that included their 10pt deduction.
  10. The fans need and demand answers on this. If the chairman thinks the strike force we have will keep us up then we are doomed. If it is completely dead the club should highlight what a good deal was offered and the reasons why it’s been rejected. Is it player and/or agent pushing this. I said to a Scumdee supporting mate a few weeks back he’d sign for them due to the basic fact they can offer more cash but reeks of a lack of ambition to keep playing at the top level.
  11. Was reported he’d secured his release from the remainder of his contract to move on, supposedly to us.
  12. I get that mate but a player can get his agent told surely. Players have the power so I’d say if what was put on the table was acceptable to May, then Vine says to push more on it, if the player is adamant on coming then he says no that deals good enough let’s get it signed. Nobody will know exactly what’s snagging it but still leaves us with players needed for the new season and only 2 back ups signed.

    Not an unexpected result against them but kinda thought we’d hit the 5/6 goals with the amount of chances created. Heyho, Diddy cup anyways.
  14. It’s not a surprise a deal sours. We seem to fall for it all the time. Too many reports of what’s happened or happening that what is the truth. All I can see right now is Dundee we’re wanting him permanently and there was a delay on the transfer fee, we express our interests and his contract gets mutually terminated by Aberdeen and we start talks now they collapse. Great way for us to give the Scum a player they can afford without paying a transfer fee for. If it were minor things to be ironed out it must be bonuses and/or release clauses if a bigger team comes knocking again. SM doesn’t give me the impression he’s a difficult or awkward guy to negotiate with. What does the club do? Go to the press saying the deals gone bad due to x, y or z or hold off. Typical we are drawn into a shit storm for trying to get a player. Just know the start of this season truly has been appalling.

    Aye ok then. Penalty was saved but was quick enough to score the rebound. The second for McKay was far more difficult to score than Kane’s 1 on 1 hands down. Kane had 45 yards with no defenders near him to decide what to do and hit it straight at the keeper. Why did he not get close and knock it to the side and slot it home? McKays second was good movement, run through the defence and had composure to score. For all saying it’s harsh on Kane that’s your opinion and your entitled to it as an i for being annoyed at a guy, who as a professional player coming close to 25 years old is not finishing these chances off. What sort of training goes on for the strikers because it appears to be not a great deal. We scored a goal a game in the league last season. That’s disgraceful.
  16. Mind that “wonderkid” Celtic had Islam Feruz who went to Chelsea and barely kicked a ball. He’s a free agent, seems the type of player Saints like. A guy who’s lost his way and needs to restart his career. Surely worth a punt for a year and if he’s not up to scratch let him move on. Certainly would give a little more options up top. But then again, Chairman says there’s no money and we have a great squad.

    It’s true this morning for me. I’ve reflected more on it and come to the conclusion some players need to leave. Montrose beat us fair and square, that is completely unforgivable. Two booted balls through the middle of our team for their two goals yesterday were unforgivable. We need a striker yes but County have a guy who took his chances yesterday which were far more difficult than Kane’s one on one. The negativity towards Kane is due to his continual lack of composure and ability to finish easier chances off. It’s not good enough having 13 goals out of 83 games. That’s a return I’d expect from a midfielder. Irrespective if we smash Forfar and Brechin both 8-0, the start to this season has highlighted more frailties than positives.
  18. We need 2 centre midfielders, 2 strikers and a centre half. Realistically we will get nobody. A striking offering of Kane, McMillan and Hendry must have teams quaking in their boots. If no additional players of quality come in then I can see seriously struggling as some of the “bigger wage” players simply are not fit and performing anywhere near justifying their salaries. Time to get them in at 8am tomorrow and get them having shooting practice until 10pm.

    That’s the cup gone for us. Totally inept performances by some. Shocking defending for both goals. Wage thieves out there. MoH has 2 chances and spunked both away and left Tanser exposed in the second half. Swanson had 2 chances and equally as bad. No need to dwell on Kane’s backpass as he’s been doing that for years. He may be fit, strong, athletic etc but his ability to perform the role in which he’s paid for is shocking. 3 goals for a bloody striker last season. One on one and decelerates towards the keeper, tippy tapping it and hits it right at him. It’s embarrassing and completely unacceptable. Im glad I don’t have a season ticket anymore, utter waste of time, effort and money watching the same shite every game.
  20. Love for midge. Great. Nobody remember he was happy to feck off to the other side of the world then come back with the tail between the legs for a new contract. Hes been great but we need younger faster players in central midfield.
  21. Speaking to a mate at work today he said to watch out for Livvy player Scott Pittman. Watched the game v United and was decent enough. Tonight he's scored and got a decent engine in him, think his contract is up so is he worth a punt considering the impact of the last couple of Livvy players we robbed.
  22. Delighted at seeing the worst team in the league being sent down to see United. Game was woeful at best. Goodness knows how we scored but will take the 1-1. Roll on next season. Surely got to improve as our home form has been gash.
  23. You know me so well mate! Hahahaha. I never placed the bet even though very tempting. Still a crap result. McMillan does exist but had that nasty injury.
  24. Who fouled in the box? BBC saying Macca and Craig?!?! WTF. ****ing awful result. 1st sub at 84 minutes?!?!?!
  25. With the huge minus goal difference we need to tighten it up at the back. Hope he has decent defenders in mind.
