    Allegedly Danny Lennon was almost shown the door after the last Thistle game but only a last minute change of heart by one member on the board come the board meeting on the Monday saved Danny from the sack. Tommy surely had a feeling that Danny was extremely close to the sack and I would assume that's what their coming together at the end of Saturday's game was about. It's incredible how a couple of months ago you couldn't think of a defensive unit that could do a job for the side and now you almost have 2 or even 3 players who are capable of adding something to the team in each of those defensive positions. Kelly and Grainger at left back, Naismith and Vanzy on the right with anyone from Mcausland, Mair, McGregor and even Goodwin in the centre whilst Dilo was outstanding between the sticks with excellent shot stopping and early distribution of the ball quickly turning defence into attack. Kello looks extremely assured with great positional sense, a calming influence at the back together with some great early distribution like Dilo. Hopefully we can keep the feel good factor going by getting a win against Ross County on Sunday. Hibs will be a tough test if Butcher gets the gig but on our day we are more than capable of getting a win in Dumfries. Keep up the good work lads.

    Considering only 700 tickets were available in advance from the ticket office (which sold out on Saturday morning), it shows the importance of a cash turnstyle. It's very rare that we as supporters are in a stand with wooden floors. Did anyone else notice that the loudspeakers were not working either. Given the lessons of the Bradford fire - I'm suprised that Thistle get a safety certificate. In case anyone wants to know how quickly a fire can spread then watch how quickly the Bradford stand went up in smoke, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLjquReTHcU 56 people died that day and hundreds were injured.

    With so many negative anti Armed Forces comment on here i thought i`d end my contribution to this thread with this taken from the beeb site. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-24889924 It fills me with great pride to see there are still so many wonderful kind people in this country who appreciate the sacrifice & service made by past & present armed forces personnel . RIP Harold Jellicoe Percival. How fitting that you are laid to rest today.

    AFAIK the TV deals for all League games go towards the prize money kitty regardless of supplier - SKY, BBC Alba, etc It's only cup games that differ in that competing teams can secure additional revenue. I'd hazard a guess if a cup tie was abandoned the TV companies probably have some small print that ensures that they only need to pay a portion of the total fee. TV companies can afford better lawyers and accountants than most football clubs - so I'm sure they are well protected. Not sure what the BBC Alba contract will say - depends what language it is in.

    The armed forces should be respected as should a minute silence if it is being held at a venue. If there is a silence planned and you dont like it, Dont Go! Simples Cant believe this is even being argued.

    Saints second goal is a classic. Long ball down the pitch. Thompson actually gets nowhere near it however the Thistle defender heads it straight to McGowan. A sublime pass from McGowan and Newton is in for the goal. A move like this cuts out the risk of losing possession in a risky area. We don't even need a target man for it, we just need to win the second ball. And allows Paul McGowan to work his magic in an attacking area against a disorganised defence. Surely makes more sense than asking McGowan to work magic in his own defensive third with forwards on his back and the opposition with all men behind the ball and organised? If Lennon & Craig continue along this path then we will finish top 6 this season.

    From today's Metro "Thistle dominated possession but Darren McGregor reckons ditching the Buddies' passing play in favour of long balls paid off. There are very few games where Steven Thompson has been dominated in the air said McGregor. He wins more than he loses, so I think if you've got an asset like that you need to use it. Thistle midfielder Isaac Osborne defended his side's approach to the game and said they would find it difficult to take a more direct approach, as the visitors did on Saturday. We like to play the game properly, Osborne said"

    Football is riddled with eejits, not just right now, but historically too. Seems to me the amount of tolerance shown to them is usually directly proportional to the talent they possess. With regard to current-day examples, Balotelli is a madman, yet Mancini took him to Man City despite having witnessed the craziness when they were both previously at Inter. Now the same maniac has found a place at AC Milan. Joey Barton has a reputation, both on and off the field that makes Riorden seem like a saint and his history of bad-boy antics goes back a long way, yet Harry Redknapp brings him back from Marseille and insists on playing him, even though Barton sowre he would never play in the Championship. Others, including Suarez, Bellamy, Goodwillie and Ferguson, (which Ferguson? You choose), are only a few of the many available examples that show what will be tolerated where there is talent to consider. Now maybe Riorden isn't in the same league (talent-wise) as the aforementioned eejits, but then again, the Saints ain't in the same league (figuratively speaking) as AC Milan, Man City, Liverpool and etc. For that reason, I'd go with the earlier suggestion of giving him 6 months to prove he's worth a chance. As for who we would drop? Nobody. He would be back up for when needed, unless we decide to go with two main strikers in some games. If it works out, he could be the man to replace Thommo when he can no longer give us 40+ games per season.

    I agree. I don't mind the Utd kids playing from the start as after all they are getting regular first team football in the top league. What pisses us all off is that he is probably down the pecking order behind the OF wonderkids who are so good they rarely see first team or top flight football. FTOF.

    I was talking to someone from Paisley the night before the Dundee United game and the subject of "Have we turned things around" came up and my view, at that time, we had drawn with Aberdeen and won against both Hearts and St Johnstone, was that the next 3 games would be a decent point to come to some view on this. After getting thumped 4-0 things by Dundee Utd things seemed to be pointing towards back to square one however after only the weather preventing us for surely a win against Ross County and a decent result against Thistle I would suggest things have turned around. Of course there's no guarantee things can't go back but the effort by the management and players to dig us out of the hole we were in is quite astounding. It's rare for a team to get itself out of the shit run we were on, this includes last seasons results, without a change of personnel and if we continue to maintain the current form everyone at the club deserves every bit of praise they get.

    Am I correct in thinking that Danny is out of contract in the summer? He's led us to our highest SPL finish and brought national silverware back to Paisley so surely we'll be offering him a new deal. Wouldn't blame him for walking away after this year due to some of the ridiculous abuse he has been recieving! However his CV will look very good after his few years at saints working on a budget that's getting cut year on year and still manages to get results, a job offer from down south can't be too far away!!

    I doubt he will get that amount of time. 15-20 mins if he's lucky replacing one of the Dundee Utd wonder kids. How John McGinn ain't in the squad is a disgrace

    If & when Butcher takes up the Hibs appointment DL will be the second longest serving SPL manager behind that other Lennon! What does this say about Lennon - that he's done reasonably well at Saints but not spectacularly well enough to earn himself a bigger gig. Danny Lennon - The Comeback Kid!

    On the positive side, this thread is considerably shorter than the one we had last year. Maybe people are starting to accept that our society is moving on from this. Clearly in public people support the armed forces because to do otherwise invites abuse. It's getting to the point now where it's not enough to show your support. There is considerable pressure for public speakers to outdo everyone else in their praise for fear of being attacked. This is called Dianafication and it's putting people off the armed forces privately. There's no doubt about this. I'm seeing a big increase in people rolling their eyes each November and it's because of people holding some of the views above.

    Why? It's a football match,people go to the game to watch football. There will have been people at the game who have little or no love for the British forces so why force them into something they don't wish to be part of? Again it's a football match,people have the choice and the chance to pay respects if they chose to do so today.

    Think the board will wait a bit longer yet before decided, Its still only three wins this season, But to be fair to Danny he has turned it round in the past few weeks, All started when he started playing good players in the right position, Kenny McLean come to mind, But I hope he keeps doing well,

    I think Kello has been excellent since coming in. Assured and appears a calming influence to the defence with far less panic defending. The whole defensive unit were the foundation for the win yesterday all were great. Good to get a break with a penalty decision too for a change. Interesting to see Thistle fans applaud Gowser when subbed despite us feeling he hadn't played as well as he can. Probably shows what harsh critics we are of our own team. Oh and mixing lager, malt whisky, jagermeister and mango daiquiri is most certainly not a good idea !!!

    Seriously when we sacking this c**t? I'm fed up, if Willie c hadnae called off last week we'd only have won 4 out of 5 games, now only won 3 out of 4, we need to sack either the manager or collum.

    Instead of clearing out our strikers, goalkeepers and midfielders I think we should have had a clear out of the defence and build a whole new one. It's been our biggest problem for 2 or 3 years now an we never seem to do anything about it!
