    Gshrek got a reaction from Kyle in Frazer Wright - An Appreciation   
    Absolutely gutted to see this warrior leave us......I hope that we can capture another big brute of a centre half that is willing to put his body on the line for his club and fellow players.
    He absolutely knew his limits and what he was good at and very rarely went outside these boundaries . 
    He has still got physical presence and I doubt any forward would relish playing against him as he played everything that was in front of him.
    He is a mans man....yes he could put himself about.....but you would never hear about him complaining about getting it back.
    who do we realistically buy as the rest look a bit lightweight .....and we need a backbone that is always a good starting point.

    Hmmm I duno. No disrespect but your way of thinking is exactly the kind of attitude that stops places like Perth moving forward. Fairly negative. I have a young family and Scotland hasn't quite got it right with regards to catering for that market yet.
    A square area that hosts cultural events, maybe ground fountains or light columns like they now have in Southend. They were placed in an area of regeneration and it's worked well. I now head there with the family in all weather's to grab a take away coffee and let the little one run about on her scooter. If it's managed well I'm sure an open space would be a success. Could the council not make a mature park area? Bring in mature trees, make it a small wildlife haven in centre of city, maybe a butterfly house etc. Sounds very tree hugging but I'm sure would be very popular. Just ideas outwith the box, rather than a concrete square or shOps.

    I have a home.....I have the Internet .....on occasion I like a drink........but I grew up in a house with no heating.....an alcoholic father.....no household luxuries.....but......I made a choice to opt out of the environment I grew up in by working relatively hard to secure a better life.....don't automatically assume that because I criticise an area or indeed certain people that I have not "walked in their shoes"........plenty of good people in Muirton, hunters and the likes.....communities can have an astonishing influence in turning things around.....and they manage it themselves not by throwing money at it and wasting valuable resources......

    I hate to say this but we all know that Dundee has left Perth behind in terms of development and investment in facilities and amenities.............what does Perth need? And I don't mean a "Nandos or a virgin gym".
    I am suggesting that a major project/plan should be thought of to reinvigorate what I see as a flagging city.

    Here's my go.....knock down the city hall...create a city square...already thought of but put a glass roof over it
    Do away with all the car parks in mill street and develop that area with a new shopping centre and pedestrianise the street.
    We as a nation also allow historic Scotland too much clout in terms of protecting buildings....look above every shop in the south side o south street....it's falling down.....knock it down and start again....

    To say I am gutted is an understatement........but I will say there is something that stinks about all of this......do/did Saints need to sell our messiah? Was he pushed out? Did he want to go? I should still be riding high on a tsunami size of a wave given last years exploits? SB banging on about hoping last years performance would bring in more season tickets? Well Mr Brown.....we as fans feels cheated...you have removed our prize asset ......and with a short sighted view......another season of Stevie banging in
    Lets say only 15 -20 goals would have kept us happy, channeled more interest and people through the turnstiles and increased his value far more ......and as we all accept we are a selling club .....everybody would have been happy .....I understand economic principles and this does not make sense......something smelly

    Tend to agree with jhq re Cuthbert not being Premiership quality, however his manager did go on record immediately after the playoff victory, that the players that got Hamilton to the Premiership deserved the chance to play there. That's why I feel a bit sorry for him now.

    I do not ever recall feeling this way about a game of fitba........I have become absolutely obsessed by the whole affair .....the excitement is coursing through my veins.....and about time too...the whole atmosphere created through reading some of the stories about travel....the amount of support getting behind the team...the efforts and expense people are having to endure to get here.....the people that through age, location or other reasons who are having to go through the hell of missing it but watching it on TV.....the coming together of all of Perthshire and beyond....

    But most of all my pride in coming from Perth has been regenerated into epic proportions.....I cannot wait to experience the night before....the morning of the day.....the boozer just before....looking around in the stadium and seeing an ocean .......not a sea ......of blue and familiar faces.....the singing ....and hopefully just hopefully a result that will give Perth a long overdue injection of a feel good factor that has been lost for a generation .....

    Come on ye saints....give us a Sunday in the town centre never seen before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
