    Season Tickets

    Just to clarify Si did you send them to Hibs or Saints?
  2. What about incoming? Rooney is on furlough at ITC, but due to join us on 1st June. I can't imagine anyone is allowed to change jobs and still benefit from furlough payment in their new job.

    Season 2019/20.

    Another top six finish for Tommy's CV. Well done big man, you went out with a bang.
  4. Cringe indeed. Was that written by a professional journalist?
  5. I've selected "someone else" and am going with this Wotte guy. My reasons are given on the New Manager thread.

    New Manager

    Similar to another couple of Dutch coaches I could name, Advocaat and Van Gaal. Moved around loads and not many failures between them. So here's a scenario. Wotte comes in for a couple of seasons with, say, Liam as his apprentice. He's worked in Scotland quite recently so I'm pretty sure he'll know where Saints stand on wages etc. Discuss.

    Turquoise if I remember. More a shell suit ensemble, kind of 1980's Lochee.

    Mmmmm, now there's a thing. I wonder if Brogie ever did get those badges....

    That's true about Brogie's situation at Albion, but he still got the job. Probably as Nethy says, as long as you're in the process of gaining the relevant "badges" the chances are you'd be in with a shout.

    Graham Murty anyone?

    I'll be as happy as you if it happens Random, just having a laugh.

    Conspiracy theory on a David Icke level.
  13. If this is the same story I followed on Twitter last night it actually said "a senior Scottish team" or something . Loads of comments followed about which premier team involved. Senior teams now include everyone from Celtic to Jeanfield Swifts so could be anyone really Linky.
  14. I'd go along with the cup team and Norn Iron thing. Never mind the Arabs, they wouldn't be interested anyway. Mannus, Griffin, O'Boyle, McCann. Or, if he does move into the NI job, let his first game in charge be a friendly against us at McD. The only condition being that we sing "Tommy Wright Wright Wright" for the whole 90 minutes.
  15. If she was responsible for introducing these things then hats off to her. Saints dragged into the 21st century and all that. If she was in the manager's face however, she's got a hell of a job to do if she wants the fans on her side.
  16. Great post by Widge, I'm not going to quote the whole thing. The line that stood out for me is that Saints go into every season hoping to avoid relegation and anything else is a bonus. We've had a hell of a lot of bonuses!! I've never once in the last seven years feared relegation. There was some ugly football, sure, but faith in the big man was always strong and we knew we were in good hands. New guy? Whoever you are, wherever you come from, you'd better be fu***n good.

    Brilliant. If he's undefeated after that time the job has to be his!
  18. I started watching Saints in the 71/72 season and talk about it as the end of the Ormond era. I'm thinking today of all the young kids who go along now, in 40 or 50 years time they'll be reminiscing about the Wright era. Long after many of us have gone. I wonder how many managers we'll have gone through by then.

    New Manager

    He sure has, not very convincingly to be fair. We're looking for someone who is ready to take the helm at a top premier league club. And yes, I remember Connoly!!!

    New Manager

    Callum would be a popular choice if it's someone from within (I know, I know, recent within). An outside appointment? John Robertson has been mentioned and probably a good shout. I'm as sentimental as the next fan and love to see the various Liam/Macca/Midge/Captain Dave combinations being suggested but nah, not for me, not yet. If they're interested in coaching and management let them cut their teeth elsewhere and see what the future brings. Heroes all and a huge part of the TW era, but that era sadly ended this morning and, for me anyway, it's time to move on.

    He'll be fully on top of what's going on behind the scenes just now. There'll be plenty of notice given regarding a date for football to restart, that's when to start thinking about a new manager.

    Clelland has been named interim manager. Obvious thing to do really as things stand.
