    He did and so did Saints from him. Wright was a superb player,  should have played for Scotland.

    Good news!!!! I'm not personally bothered by Wright leaving.  Good player, expensive and an injury liability.  Saints need club players, not journeyman cash hungry players. Obviously we need a manager ASAP to shore things up.

    ICT have confirmed Shaun Rooney has now officially left them to "join the club he signed a pre-contract with earlier this year", which Rooney confirmed was us.
    Apparently the league required images of next seasons kits the weekend just past too.
    Hopefully get news on both soon.

    TW would also probably say we were due a champions league spot. McCart ... best signing in years. He'll end up at Sevco.

    McCann for player .Hendry for young player even though he is over age.
    McCart worth a shout but too short a time in team.

    McCann and Hendry should be joint winners.

    Just in the way we won the cup, the stars aligned, and I pretty much feel the same with TW’s departure.  Most reasons  that have been mentioned go on at other clubs, chairman holding tight purse strings etc, I do think it was crass of Preston to make insinuations regarding why he left. You either tell the whole truth or just shut up.
    I think the reasons are probably more mundane and it has been death by a thousand pinpricks. 
    I’m sure history will eventually show that as much as it pains me to say it.. TW left at the right time. How many managers can leave a club a hero, and be able to return at some point an even bigger one!
    Will things be the same again? Probably not, but folk adjust... I won’t stop following Saints just because of a change of manager... TW thanks for the CUP, can die happy

    We don't need Hearts in the top league, just like we didn't need Rangers. Besides, they'll be replaced by Dundee United who will bring just as many fans to McDiarmid, if not more.

    Melbourne Saint reacted to williamwonka in League Reconstruction   
    I’m with you ... I agree she does not need anymore airtime... my point being that the extra income from playing Hearts would have helped a little ... particularly if we are going down the route of games broadcast online... there are a lot of Hearts fans that would pay to see closed door games of which saints would get a cut.  The Scottish game is in crisis... teams need as much money as they can.  Hearts would have helped. However, for many other reasons... they should go down in my opinion.

    Yep, I agree with what a lot of people are saying.  There is no way she will get the support she needs ... and ... who in their right mind would want to go through all this again in 2 years’ time?! It doesn’t add up. She makes a good point about throwing out a club in a time of crisis ... but I feel we’ve lost so much ground having to listen to their complaints that the best thing is for them to go.  It’s like asking the guy who brought all the beer to the party to go home because he’s wasted and starting to smash ornaments.

    Melbourne Saint reacted to Wendy Saints in New Manager   
    Surely despite the current pandemic, it is imperative to appoint a manager sooner rather than later? It has been well documented that it wasn’t a case of if TW moved on but rather when, so I’d like to think our club would have been proactive and have had some kind of contingency plan in place?
    I feel Saints are currently missing a trick not having an appointment in place, everyday we are reading about another professional out of contract.  I realise most clubs are in the same boat not knowing what/when things are going to happen so you don’t want it being a double whammy not having a manager too.  No point trying to save a few quid with a late appointment when you end up missing some good signings?

    Because (despite what SB said "no rush"), which he has to say, we need to appoint our preferred manager- be it Callum/Robertson/whomever, pretty quickly. Callum knows the system /squad etc, but question marks if he'll come. Even if he does, clubs will be actively sounding at players as we speak. We'd look a bit daft approaching agents/players (or agents approaching us) if we don't have a confirmed manager. I wouldn't take a job without knowing who my boss was. So I'd expect something next week. That's us almost into June.

    I would expect an announcement in the next 10 days or so. If Callum turns it down,  that would leave Robertson (if Hearts don't make a move), Cleland. Wonder who Cleland would have as assistant? Having Cleland sort out releasing players doesn't necessarily mean much, it has to be done, and no surprises in who's left. Saints would need a Manager in place for new signings. A lot of players claim that the vision and passion of managers influence their decision to join. Cleland would send me to a comatose state.

    Melbourne Saint reacted to blueheaven in Season 2019/20.   
    Worth noting at this stage that just three months ago our chairman said: "We went for it at the start of the season - we thought we could get into the top six and have a cup run but we just haven't performed and that leaves a huge financial gap and concerns."
    Now we've finished in the top six and we also reached the Scottish Cup quarter-final. Never, ever doubt Tommy Wright.

    Can't see how they can draw up the numbers of teams in leagues until they find out how many have survived lockdown. (Financially)

    Melbourne Saint got a reaction from Jad in Kristen Robertson   
    Fair enough to ask the question, but I dare say they felt that TW'S mind was made up. We all know he's a stubborn codger, and a decision that he'd obviously been thinking about for a while. I don't think Saints could've persuaded him in any way.  The debate will no doubt rumble on, and that irks me somewhat. I'd far rather look forward, and whoever gets the gig has big shoes to fill. Let's hope if future results don't go his way, there's not a chorus of "hate KR, it's her fault Tommy left". There's no proof! Remember in November,  a lot of ppl were questioning TW. I think TW felt he'd taken the club as far as he could and needed a break. I think the time was right for TW to leave. Head held high, held in highest esteem by the fans.
