    There will be a full squad meeting on Friday April 25th from 1700 in the Landsdowne Bar & Kitchen on Landsdowne Crescent in Glasgow. This is a shortish walk from Firhill where the mighty Saints are taking on Partick Thistle at 19:45 that night. The kitty will be there, and will be spent, so if you are up for a few free drinks then be there !! The whole squad have been sent a Teamer invite to this one. It's a cracking pub, if a wee bit hard to find :-) Website is here; http://www.lansdownebar.co.uk/lansdowne-bar/home/the-lansdowne-bar-a-kitchen.html

    Thommohawk's New Deal

    Without any doubt saints must sign up teale. He is a very fit player who has had a bad season with injury. He is a very good creative player who can definitely play on. Make no mistake that should he go we will be losing him to another top level club in Scotland

    The Referendum Thread

    This is a myth. I live in the area, and know enough about the local history and demography to see through the oft trotted out position that the likes of Jackie Baillie (local MSP) and other BT folks cling to. It is emotive, and obviously resonantes locally, but is easy enough to refute. The local economy has evolved over recent decades, with very significant shifts in employment patterns. 30 - 40 years ago, a couple of the biggest employers in the area were Westclox (around 1100 employees) and Polariod (as much as 2000 employees at its peak). Both were based at the Strathleven Industrial estate, which , at its height, provided employment for in excess of 4000 people. Polaroid has all but closed its operations, and now employs a fraction of the number it previously did. Westclox is no longer in existance, and several other big employers have either moved away or shut down entirely. Did the loss of all these job opportunities destroy the local area? Well, it certainly didn't help. Add to that, the loss of numerous whisky bonds and bottling plants over the years, and we do have a depressed economy in many respects, but, increasingly, this area has become a commuter belt. Half an hour by car or train to Glasgow, and 10 minutes from the M8, while other commercial enterprises have developed and enhanced the local economy. You just have to look at the number of new houses being built at the Lomond Gate development area (just off the A82 past Dumbarton en route to Balloch) to get a sense of the growth locally. These new build estates aren't materialising on the basis of Faslane being 12 miles down the road. Many of the folk working at the Faslane base have transferable skills/qualifications. I know qualified engineers, joiners, and mechanics, who are MOD Police officers (or MOD Plod, as we refer to them). They could reasonably be expected to have a continuing role if the base was to be utilised for a small naval fleet in the event that the Trident subs departed. An independent Scotland woud still require a fleet of ships to patrol national waters etc. If the jobs weren't there, the money saved in not having to fund the nuclear deterrent (the proportion of that cost that lies with Scotland) could be used to generate new industry locally. This happens all over the country, and in nations across the globe. Economies are constantly evolving, and there is a requirement to reallign local community priorities to acknowledge and respond to this. I'm not being glib about this. I appreciate that it is an anxiety for many people, and would require a lot of will and commitment to address, but is this really a justification for maintaining a site for abhorrent weapons that cost billions to maintain?

    Did you watch News Night last night Stuart ? The English expert on fuel saying Scotland's bills would not go up and that England would need to take energy for their fuel in England. Any why I am writing this I don't know because you just pull more fairy stories out of the sky for your own agenda. Will never able to pin you down if it's not bad mouthing Saints it's your a strong Tory supporter. That in its self sums you up perfectly so keep up you long posts on independence as I can't think of a better way to convince fellow buds to vote YES

    Poor R*ngers Theads Merged.....

    And those are the VERY belated figures. A year later, and it's worse than the daily rangers is letting on.Still amazing, nonetheless, that a Mainstream Scottish Media voice is actually letting SOME reality shine on the subject. Poor bears. Do they buy more season tickets to keep the spivs happy a wee while longer or do they let things fall part and build from scratch - as should have happened two years ago? It's been long known that expensive players, a ridiculously expensive manager, nights in top hotels before you play Forfar... ALL come at a price. The price is.. Losing your stadium and losing your training ground. And Buddies bleat about the excitement of MAYBE being in the play-offs! Life is good.

    Another enjoyable game last night with the youngsters edging it by a couple of goals and showing some clinical finishing in front of goal when required. Hopefully see as many of the lads at the night out on the 25th. Will be close to £300 in the kitty come then.

    Just a quick post in here as I don't think it's been mentioned - the decision to ban ALL drums from SMP was taken after the first game vs M'Well this season where they acted like utter fannies with it and smoke bombs - happened to speak to Brian Caldwell about this and some other matters back in November and he confirmed that since then the club do not allow them in the ground any more. This explained Hibs not being allowed theirs in either earlier in the season, as well as the Panda club no longer using one they had. So folks, this really was nothing new, and nor was it singling out any one club, deserving of that or not. Oh, and btw count me in the anti-drum brigade. Always thought they were cringeworthy at fitba. Saturday proved they're not needed either.

    I don't think most Scots care or would even have been aware (before independance talk) that the subs are in Helensburgh. I work at the base and I know it would destroy the surrounding areas if the base was shut down as 80% of people who work here live in the Helensburgh/Balloch/Dumbarton area.

    ok so you can't grow up in 20 years? Are you saying people can't like wrestling and panto, as wrestling is panto for youngsters? What do 'grown ups' do for entertainment? Go to the cinema? Sit on the hyperdrive interweb and troll people who aren't grown up? Get kicked out of football matches for having drunk far too much? Let me know, I'd love to grow older more gracefully than I am.

    Entertaining is purely subjective and many would see "wrestling" as pantomime for the young and adults who have not grown up..............................I could use more "less than generous" terms but it is a person who has passed away and I'll refrain from being disrespectful.

    I'd be astounded if he goes to the new club. He's far too good for them, like most of our players are to be fair. They're just a nothing 3rd tier team.

    I would expect it would trigger an automatic extension, I know from talking to Tealy that he had this clause and is gutted that he won't play enough games to trigger it, but still hopes to sign.

    A win would be tremendous but I'd probably take a point now to be honest. County and Thistle are both away from home so will hopefully both lose. A loss would be pretty disastrous. It's definitely more a must not lose game than must win game.

    How Many Points?

    Thistle fan posted an interesting table on PNB. If the results for all teams go the way they did in the first round of fixtures (We win at Partick and home to Ross Co, lose at Killie, and draw at home to Hibs and Hearts) then the final table will look like this: Killie 42 Saints 39 Hibs 38 County 37 Thistle 35 Hearts 18 Doesn't look too unrealistic to me, and I'd certainly take that. I think 37 points would do it, and we have 31 just now. Beat Hibs a week Saturday and win at Firhill 6 days later and we're safe.

    I sat next to it at Fir Park and it did my nut in... I was at Firhill twice this season as a neutral and their drummer was equally annoying... But I see no legitimate reason to ban it. Not liking it is not a valid reason imo.

    More genius from St Mirren . £20 entry fee, complete rip off. All ticket games at half empty ground No standing areas ( except for Celtic fans) Home wins as scarce as hens teeth.......... Ah, lets ban fans from making any noise or enjoying themselves. Job done.
