It’s interest free, is it not, and repayable over a long period. No pressure at all from that. Broon has probably bought premium bonds with it....

Its interest free, we have until 2042 to pay it off, and the first payment isn't required until the start of next season.

As usual Saints are the quietest team in the transfer window. Although we had a magnificent 2nd half to last season and one like no other I think it would be foolish to think even keeping all our players which we probably wont we'll have another successful season when everyone else is strengthening. I just hope we are not at our limit and that we are not in the one out one in position. I think its going to be a long difficult season.

I think we might be a bit shackled at the moment... awaiting moves for certain players and reticent as a result to go for targets. It's frustrating, I'm sure for CD.

Leigh Griffiths on loan irrespective of what he has done in the past could be a great fit for us. Just a scorer that's all we need. 

Absolutely no question he can score goals, dont think he would come to Saints and how long would it be before the wheels come off wherever he goes.

Not sure where this mythical striker is going to come from. Have a bad feeling that it’s just Oloafe on loan again.

Maybe not a bad idea. Scored s few for Sutton. Don't know if he is in Millwall plans or would he come back when Callum never gave him much game time before punting him back.

He’s not been included in the squad there for their opening matches, but did recently sign a new contract. Presumably they think he’s one for the future, but would be looking to loan him out.

He's injured I think.

I'd rather see us relegated than have him in the team.

I am sorry but that must be one of your worst posts ever.  I certainly would never like to see my team relegated just because of a dislike for any one player or individual, We supported Riordan when he was at Saints someone that has had a shady past. Robertson when he was at Saints and Alan McGregor when he was with us all had issues.

Griffiths was caught messaging multiple schoolgirls calling them hot, and is quite openly racist as seen by the multiple videos that go about.

As far as I know Riordan was just a complete fanny when drunk, while I didn't know anything about David Robertsons actions until he'd left the club.

To me there's a line of what's acceptable and what's not, and I wouldn't want any young Saints fan googling their new hero and thinking how he acts is acceptable.

Have you seen the girls pictures that Griffiths was sent? He was investigated by the Police and no criminality was found. I have seen the pics and i would have said she looked like she was early 20s. 

I never mentioned any photos. He messaged under 16s calling them hot, as a high profile 30yo man that's pretty much the definition of grooming.

And no, I haven't made a point of looking at photos of a 15yo girl online.

Yeah I don’t want an alleged paedophile who it seems has behaved in a very predatory manner even recently, and an alleged racist anywhere near the club, and I’m sure the club don’t either. An absolutely awful look for any club trying to be seen as a family club and doing their best to encourage kids along to games. 
 

surely his career is done and even Dundee cant sink that low? 
 

tried to choose my words carefully here…

You need to choose your words more carefuly then. 

There is no way Griffiths will be coming to Perth but a lot of comments here does the posters no credit. 

Draw a line under this guys.

He sand a song about Rudi Skacel and the court fined him and he was banned and fined by the SFA. Dont turn that into being openly racist.

I mean, I'm not sure how you can see someone singing a racist song in a public setting, and the claim that's not him being openly racist.

It would seem racism is A Bad Thing in Scotland unless it’s anti-Irish racism. Then you get a friendly escort from the police.

Anyway, I think there’s more chance of me signing for Saints than Griffiths. Can we move on?

Probably right Abernethy but I just hope he does

It’s honestly extremely concerning to see the posts which older posters deem acceptable on here and the ones which they don’t. Are we really that out of touch with reality? 

Get him banned for ageism :oops:

On the pitch, he is exactly what we need, off the pitch.... no thanks. Would kill the feeling of the club.

Slightly concerned we are into the past day and a half and still no one else in. On the flip, delighted no one is out and no real rumours either.

Maybe once one or two moves happen elsewhere it will all kick off.
