    Welcome Scott Tanser

    This is the result of being safe last season and reaching two semi finals. The cash that brought in and the fact it's raised our profile has, IMO, made these signings possible. Anybody who think last season wasn't a success should possibly have a wee lie down.

    John McGinn

    Privileged to watch this guy rise from being a wee bit in the stripes to Scotland stalwart and if not for Robertson, probable Captain. Top Premiership player and handsome bugger with royalty among his fans. He truly is living the dream and fair play to the lad... He has worked bloody hard to make it happen! I remember years ago, Saints v Celtic at home. Meatball had Scott Brown in his back pocket the whole game. He went in for one crunching "hard but fair" tackle on Brown... Who turned to the referee pleading for protection! McGinn just looked at Brown, put his fingers to his bottom lip, and mocked the Celtic skipper with a wibble wibble wibble gesture! Class. Used to be on YouTube but damned if I can find it. I said back then, he was not just a successor to Brown in the Scotland midfield, but would have been an improvement and one to build our midfield around for years to come and a potential Captain. Celtic fans scoffed and mocked... Bet they wish they had opened the biscuit tin after all! Proud of McGinn and privileged to have witnessed his development. What a guy. [emoji41][emoji1022]󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    Not fussed with this in the slightest , yes he had pace but what’s the use of pace if you constantly run into cul de sacs or can’t cross. ? we can and will improve on Connolly fairly easily .

    Will be very hard to replace unfortunately, he was brilliant for us, good enough to start for anyone outside the old firm.

    Ah well, since it's now on P&B courtesy of a St. Johnstone fan, the player I've heard is Scott Tanser who would be another superb bit of business.

    I wonder if thread demolishing like this is one of the reasons fewer and fewer people bother with this forum these days? I’ve signed back up with P&B because I’m scunnered with the lack of debate and humour and the endless point scoring drivel on here. I know I’ll not be missed but a lot of interesting posters have given up before me. Over to you Bazil for the inevitable last word.

    Whose judgement to trust, whose judgement to trust... The managers selecting a lad who has been deemed good enough to be called up for Scotland at every level so far outwith senior vs the opinion of someone who can't even spell the player in question's name that he's passing judgement on. Aye, it's quite a quandary right enough. 🤔🙈

    Ethan Erhahon

    I think we need to consider that he is still very young. Physically he needs further work in the gym and on the training pitch. He has been getting game time experience in the last two seasons that will stand him in good stead. There are not many young players in the top league with more games under there belt at age 19/20. I think he would develop faster if he had a more experienced player alongside him in midfield. I believe he has proved a more consistent performer than McAllister or Magennis at the same age. Neither of those two players have set the heather alight during the last season. I have no doubt that Ethan has played more games this last season than those two combined. Magennis has managed 4 starts since joining Hibs. He was permanently injured this season for Saints. McAllister has hardly managed to start regularly never mind finish 90minutes. Jim Goodwin obviously trusts Ethan and it shows that he was prepared to let both his captains this season leave the club in Magennis and Foley. Let’s cut the young lad some slack. He’s still very young and inexperienced. This last season will have given him immense confidence to kick on. Not many St Mirren midfielders have experienced playing in two cup semi finals at age 19/20. He deserves his call up. Unless someone can point me in the direction of another defensive Scottish midfielder at his age group.

    I wonder if McGrath getting selected by Ireland might convince Doyle Hayes to sign a contract with us again. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see McGrath sign a new deal on improved terms so we make a decent bit of coin when we sell him, heard he is very happy at the club.

    McGinn is a level above McLean. Was also a level above him for St Mirren. Best player we have produced since the late 70s early 80s

    I said on here after his first game , that Connolly clearly had pace but that was it , he was a headless chicken. Sure he had his moments , but they were few and far between. If we bring someone in who can provide some decent crosses , then that will be an instant improvement !

    Bit of a weird take. They have the last say as they are the group that ponied up for the majority of shares in the club. They aren't representing 1,100 supporters by way of a closed shop, it could just as easily be 3,000 or 4,000 supporters if the membership uptake was at that level. Supporters one and all have an equal chance to have their views represented by joining SMiSA. They put the vote out to their 1,100 members and like it or not, that was the fairest way to do it. Would you have rather it was a public vote and you'd have had Hearts, Morton etc supporters skewing the vote to pick something pish? At least you know everyone voting on the kits was 100% a supporter.

    Tait is currently a better defender than Naismith ever was or ever will be. I simply cannot believe that some folk want to replace Tait never mind with Jason Naismith. I never get the obsession with bringing back former players at the best of times but Naismith just isn't very good. Never looked anything but the level of the other RC defenders any time we played them. We need to show more ambition. If we want to replace a player it has to be with an upgrade. In the case of Tait imo that would be very difficult in our wage structure.

    Just the way him and/or his agent has went about things, a highly doubt he’ll be making a good bit more considering the well documented money troubles they’ve been going through since Covid. They finished below us in the league too, so hardly ambitious either for a young lad his age. Just stinks IMO, so feck him. Nothing being a sensible person about it, I’m a supporter of the club and I’m passionate, so if someone wants to drag us along for 6 months waiting for a better offer from down south to then sign for a club further up north who finished below us last season, then aye feck him.

    Season tickets

    Maybe, I'm in the minority, but I couldn't give a shit about rewards. I bought a season ticket to help support the club through difficult financial times. The club has thanked us several times for the financial support we've provided throughout the year. More than enough for me. I had a good laugh at the dummy out of the pram highlighted statement. Brilliant? I think not.

    Apparently Main is happening. That's a f**king dreadful signing if true. And none of this 'Oh don't write him off before we've seen him in a Saints shirt' shite. He's played for two of the top 4 clubs in Scotland at the time in Motherwell and Aberdeen and couldn't hit a coo in the arse with a banjo at either. I've seen enough of him to reach the conclusion that he's pish. What are we even doing sniffing about this level of player?!

    You only need to take a look at Dundee’s accounts for the last few years to see how much of a financial mess they are in. They have already had two administrations. Without Nelms at the helm they would be facing a hat trick. This is taken from their last set of accounts - remember this is pre pandemic. “The accounts for the year ending 31st May 2019 have been approved and signed by the Directors. Quite clearly, 2018/19 was a frustrating and disappointing season with the club being relegated from the SPFL Premiership. A loss for the year had been forecast but the actual loss of £1,825,669 was significantly higher than the previous year’s loss (£425,748).” Source - https://dundeefc.co.uk/news/club-statement-accounts-2/ Previous accounts don’t make good reading either - https://dundeefc.co.uk/club/accounts/ Their fans don’t believe there is an issue with this level of debt. Dundee don’t even own Dens Park. That is owned by a United board member John Bennett. I don’t think United are much better off financially. I wish our governing bodies took a tighter control against clubs that are gaining an unfair sporting advantage by spending way more than their income over other clubs to gain promotion or higher league positions. Have we learned no lessons from Motherwell, Livingston (twice), Dundee (twice), Rangers (liquidated) and Gretna.

    Well, what a performance. Some people let the result cloud our performance against the Czechs, we played well in that game as well. Last night wasn't a backs to the wall draw, it was a well deserved draw. Aye, Clarke, the critics will be back under their rocks. The reality is we almost certainly need a win on Tuesday but, considering the teams in our group that's all we could ask for, it's in our own hands. Can't wait till Tuesday.
