  1. I am sure that they used the Astro pitches one year for an 'Open Day'. I have a picture of me and 'legendary striker' Michael Moore on said pitch
  2. That statement sounds very much like 'don't expect to hear anything more on this any time soon'
  3. I didn't see the point in resting players prior to the semi, given the time between games. However, I got the impression from Callum that the changes he made were more about giving everyone in the squad some game time, to keep them sharp - makes a lot of sense, and I guess he'll have a similar approach to the last two league games. It's never good to see the reserve team playing as it gives the impression that they have written the game off. However, we have a squad of players with no obvious stars so even if the regulars aren't playing, I would feel confident that the game is still winnable. Nice to be able to 'relax' (relatively) and let CD do what he does. No reason to question his judgement.
  4. My favourite quote from today...(BBC report): ‘Playing at Hampden is starting to look like a home tie for them’ never thought that would be said of Saints :-)
  5. I'm not sure I see the need to rest players given that it's 8 days til the semi final. Might be different if it was a midweek game. I can see Callum not playing anyone who is carrying a knock or possibly subbing certain individuals earlier than he might otherwise, but better to play a fairly strong team to maintain fitness levels and sharpness. And of course there's still the important matter of wanting 3 points in the quest for 5th place.

  7. I think for knighthoods and damehoods the criteria specify that you haven't retired and are still active in your profession.
  8. I was on website to sign up and was able to watch live Italian footy via browser. Will install app too just in case.
  9. Quick Premier Sports viewing query - any difference (technical or otherwise) in watching via a browser or via the app?
  10. While I am sure that the players will be perfectly aware of how important the final is to fans, it's not going to be the same playing in front of an empty stadium, with fake crowd noise. It would be great if there was a mechanism for us to upload good luck messages (either written or preferably short videos) for the team, particularly so that they can see the faces of fans, and appreciate how many supporters there are around the world willing them on.
  11. Do you mean cos of the weather (forecast says 7 degrees and light rain) or a likely government imposed shut down of elite sport?
  12. I don't see why McCann would sign an extension with us. What would be the incentive for him? It would just mean that the buying club would have to pay Saints more; without an extension that cash will go to the player (and more importantly his agent) as a signing on fee. I think McCann has already shown the club plenty of loyalty by signing on til 2023. Appreciate there may be implications of his young age, development fees etc that may complicate things.
  13. I am not against fan ownership per se - it seems to work for some clubs. However, I definitely feel that it would be a mistake to only select Saints fans for the board. It's important that business decisions are made for the right reasons and with fans it is too likely that sentimentality will get in the way. Of course, every board member must have Saints' best interests at heart, but thats not the same as requiring them to be a 'fan'.
