We are not bitter , just scunnered at the comments they have come away with , big enough to dish it out canny complain when they get criticised.

What he said, great point, hopefully the turning point and kick on to safety, huge game next week, same again performance and 3 points

I'd have thought we need a completely different kind of performance to get a win next week.

Enjoyed that today. Far more like a St Johnstone performance; well organised, solid with a clear plan and showing plenty of fight.  We controlled good portions of that match as well, so it was far from backs to the wall.

Our keeper and  back 4 were excellent.  Start with the same next week please.

A fair few players who have been slated by Saints fans the past few months were superb today.. Anderson, Alston, Spoony, Maclean, delighted for them. Foster also looked much more like his old self until he got injured. Millar and Muzz putting in a great shift in the centre of midfield.  Williams showed a lot of potential, look forward to seeing him when we're up against lesser opposition.

We were well under the cosh the first 15 minutes or so, but fair play to Tommy in pulling Spoony into the middle and dropping Williams wide as we ran the game for large spells there on up until half time and Celtic didn't seemed to adapt their formation to deal with it.

Thought the ref did okay, as Celtic fans scream for a foul everytime one of their players is challenged, so there is a fair bit of pressure.  I genuinely celtic fans turn up thinking the other team should just stand back and take their hiding like good little diddies, while they get all excited about their great attacking football.  I see why they get so into the religious nonsense, because as a support they have very limited football knowledge.

I've never seen us play a league season undefeated at Ibrox and Celtic park, so fair play to Tommy Wright, another milestone achieved...

Just don't spoil it by going crazy with the changes for next week!!

Vintage TW's Saints.  Pretty sure both managers will be happy with that.  BR got his fringe players a good workout, and gained a point on the Dons.   Tommy will be delitit to bag a point through there.  More importantly the team can take a lot from that performance......the team that takes points from the champions at home, is not usually the team who go down.

 

Regarding Simon Murray, he scores in bunches if he bags 6 goals for Dundee over the next couple of months, he will keep them clear od the drop.  Just what Saints are looking for......

Brendan Rodgers post match interview saw him questioning the mentality of the Saints players because we haven't won a game since December and then put in a performance like that. 

Fingers crossed TW smashes the prick.

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

McMillan will be more than adequate for St Johnstone. We'll be like a different team next month.

Even though Rodgers shouldn't really come out with that... he has a point- literally. Many of us feel the same. Maybe we should be thanking him, as TW should print out that quote & put it in the dressing room for further motivation. Thankyou Brendan for the point & Saints secret motivation guru...

Its not, and never will be, his place to start questioning the commitment of St Johnstone players.

I can' see him playing that backline. 

Can see the same 5 as last week. maybe a wee change to a 4 with Joe moving to right back and foster to left. 

good call . how did you work that one out ????????

I seen it as sticking up for what he called an excellent manager, and highlighting their lack of commitment in so called lesser games, thought it was the bigot bros that we’re paranoid
