    This close season I have come to the conclusion that despite what is always being said about Saints in the media and by rival fans alike, we are not a well run club! A well run business maybe, but a well run professional, Scottish Premiership club? No, not by a long shot.

    You have to bear in mind that there is a huge number of people that no longer even receive emails from the club despite being on their database, such is the substandard software they use. How many times have you heard someone complaining they used to get Tommy's weekly email however no longer do? I know I'm certainly in that boat!
    So even if the club were to be even remotely proactive and send the opt in email to adhere with GDPR, half the people on the database would never even see it.

    Murray Davidson is our hard tackling centre mid, what we need is someone similar to Chris Millar's playing style. Someone with the ability to put their foot on the ball under pressure and find a pass to link up the play between defense and attack. With out this we constantly resort to lumping it forward from the back and hoping for the best, which never comes off for us.

    SaintDougie got a reaction from MySpazz in Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?   
    I've been pretty sure this is the last season with Joma since the end of last season, so if others are echoing this there must have been something announced in the past. 
    I've actually been hoping for Marcon to take over as I personally think their kits this season have been pretty class. Subtle little touches, yet pretty traditional football kits, on what appear to be of a high quality finish. 
    Also I don't really care if it's bespoke or not, just something that's a traditional looking St Johnstone kit in traditional St Johnstone blue! Joma failed at every attempt to get our club colours correct, and apart from a couple of decent efforts they have been in the most part, pretty poor and unpopular as far as design and quality is concerned. 
    Add to that the years of the Surridge sports pish we had it's high time we had a good quality popular Saints kit again.

    Don't get me wrong, I am in no means an advocate for Kane being our messiah and one and only hope. In fact I have been quoted many times as saying he's not a Premiership quality striker. However he does appear to have improved this season after his loan period at QoS, so maybe there is a Prem striker in there somewhere.
    If McMillan can replicate what he did at Dundalk and get on a good goal scoring run I reckon Kane could feed of that, as opposed to being the main target man (Macca drops too deep these days) as he has been this season.

    Hope TW shakes him by the hand,as he’s 100% correct, putting that effort into every game should be the basic requirement of a footballer

    I have also seen the treatment they get in the ground but none of this is about their behaviour in the ground.
    They have been exemplary in the atmosphere they have created at home games but they have been idiotic outside that. The grooming from the 'old school' verifies the idiocy.
    Their behaviour outside the ground and at away games can't be blamed on excessive over stewarding at home games.

    You said Ando was fit for the Championship and Gordon in your eyes  wasn't good enough for a starting place. Why is my question?

    I'm not really sure of what angle you're going for with this comment to be honest. It comes across as if you're trying to deflect poor performances away from the team and blame it entirely on Scottish football as a whole. Something that I have no doubt wouldn't be reciprocated when Saints are playing well.
    Personally I think he's quite right to make these comments, yeah we have struggled recently and there's no doubt at all we are crying out for some fresh faces, but some of the reactions are beyond knee jerk and more full blown spasm.
    Now I'm all for backing the team to the hilt, hoping and wishing for shock results, cup runs and serious ambitions. However a dash of realism and humility is also required when supporting a club the size of Saints, something a lot of people would do well to remember.
    I do like the idea the RG mentioned though, he may very well be trying to create some sort of siege mentality within the dressing room.
