    I have no concerns over Hearts points deduction. Its time we dismiss ourselves from looking at THAT end of the table and start looking upwards. If this is Dannys make or break season then we should look at who we are trying to catch for the highest finish.

    I'm wondering if any of the young, fringe players will make a McGinnesque breakthrough this year.
    Much will depend on the transfer activity of the next few weeks, but I have a hunch that Mo Yaqub could feature in some capacity.
    At the very least, he'll be a regular sub as we've already lost Dummett, Imrie, and Carey as left-sided players. I hope he is given decent game time in the pre-season matches, and that the coaching staff are looking to properly blood him in a starting 11 sooner rather than later. I've not seen a great deal of him, but he looks to have the physique and pace to compete for a chance to prove himself at the very least.
    While, like everyone else, I'm awaiting new additions to the squad with anticipation, I'm also keen to see lads like Yaqub, Naismith, and Reilly make a genuine push for 1st team places.

    I believe next season is our best chance to have a good SPL campaign and make the top 6 since the league was formed. There is two reasons i've formed this opinion, here they are.
    The first is events at our own club. We have retained our best players from last term and have managerial continuity. Goodwin, Van Zanten, McAusland McGinn, McLean, McGowan, Thompson, and Teale. They were our core players last season, they will all be here next season. Indeed, the only player we have lost who was a first team regular for all of last season is Samson.
    The second reason is the state of every other team in the SPL. Let's look at them all (excluding them obviously) individually.
    Aberdeen: Yet another new manager appointed by Aberdeen at the tail end of last season, and yet another massive clear out, 11 odd players shown the door. Another season of transition?
    Dundee United: Another team who appointed a new manager at the end of last season. Russell, Flood, Douglas and Daly - their four best players - are already away. They've brought in some untested lads from Thistle as replacement. Tough season ahead for the Tangerines by the looks of it.
    Hearts: Where to start with this lot. Will be lucky if they still exist by the time the season kicks off. If they do, it will probably be with a points deduction and they will be fielding a team of youths. Very likely to be relegated next year.
    Hibs: The one man team has lost their one man. Yes, hallelujah. Griffiths is heading back down to Wolves for preseason and looks certain to be playing with them next year. They finished bottom 6 with the SPL player of the year last year, where they going to end up without him?
    ICT: Reguero, POTY nominee Andrew Shinnie, and Owain Tudor Jones are away, three first team regulars and along with Mackay and Foran ( who are staying ) they were probably 3 of their 5 top players last season. They've since made 7 new signings from Ireland and the lower leagues in England, another gamble by Tel. Compared to some, not much of an over haul. Some ICT fans are concerned however.
    Kilmarnock: In absolute turmoil. Manager gone in controversial circumstances, fans boycotting season tickets and major protests planned. Given that they are already in a precarious financial position, if this boycott goes through it may tip them over the financial cliff. Events on field are the least of any Killie fans worries at the moment, although they have lost Bell and Dayton, two of their top players.
    Motherwell: Another season of huge upheaval at Fir Park. Ojamaa, Randolph, Law, Humphrey and Daley are already gone. Higdon, McFadden and Hately haven't signed and look virtually certain to be moving on. Basically, the heart of the team that finished second has been ripped out. Pretty much all of their top performers have left or will leave. Another season of huge transition coming up for Motherwell.
    Partick Thistle: New manager with virtually no experience and a squad with little SPL experience. Two of their best players from their title season (Erskine and Paton) have already followed Jackie up the road to Tannadice. John Baird ( ) has been signed as replacement. It's no surprise that they are the bookies favourites for relegation.
    Ross County: The Brittain saga doesn't look like ending, hard to say which way it will go. Either way they have lost Vigurs and Lawson. Those three were their three best players last season, they will be losing at least two of them.
    St Johnstone: Yet another new manager with no SPL experience. That and their two best players - Murray Davidson and Liam Craig have gone. I think they will really struggle next season.
    Compare us with that lot^^^. We have managerial continuity and have retained all our top players, while moving on some dead wood. All that and we have a trophy in the cabinet. Really makes you realise how lucky we are to be fans of St Mirren.
    Next season is going to be one to remember

    There are some flaws in what you say, firstly the main reason for not playing at home is that Tommy does a huge amount of work on the pitch over the summer (it's being re-laid again this year) and he wants to give it time to settle. There is a reason we have the best playing surface in the country. Secondly, there is no financial difference in playing at home or away in friendlies, the clubs come to mutual agreement to make sure that's the case, or they just don't play one another. Finally, Strathclyde polis no longer exist.
    Apart from that, spot on.

    Many Saints fans don't get why Parkin was brought in. He was back up for Thomo not brought in as our main striker. Parkin is a handful if he gets regular games as a main striker he will do well playing to his strengths. I wish him all the best for the future

    How many superb games has Graham had in the last 2 years,. washe worthy of a new deal on that basis? We can't keep him on just so other teams can't sign him, even though he'll end up having 3/4 blinders against us next season. Up until January he was a cert to be released at the end of his contract and nobody would of been too bothered ( apart form JJ ). Then he had a superb performance in the semi against Celtic at left back, Dummet returning pretty much killed his chances of a regular game along with Isma coming in and McGinn being introduced to the team ahead of him.
    Yes he has the ability to win games and he needed a good run in the team which he has never got, you have to ask why. It all can't be Danny's fault, his attitude has came into question since he first joined us well over weight. Maybe they didn't agree which each other and working together would never of worked next season.
    I'll be sad to see him go because there is a player in him somewhere, who knows maybe that bad injury he had at Huddersfield has changed him.
    As for Sam, he done what was asked of him, he was always going to be a back up player. Came on as a impact sub a few times this season and changed some games for us, scored in the cup run and got himself a winners medal.

    Think theres another three players that you can add to the list of players potentially going out .
    Which makes for quite an exiting time post season , as we see what players come and go.
    Would like to see us continue to bring quality players in on loan ,and maybe even keep the Geordie boys.
    But lets just wait and see who do bring in , with so many players going out , we could potentially see 6 experienced players coming in , four or five players from the lower leagues , and a couple of decent players coming on loan , which could at the end of the day , see us with a very strong squad.

    I'm pretty sure Carey wants to leave Scotland so doubt he will sign for another SPL club (unless that's the line he's spinning to the club to get away). The way people are reacting you would have thought he was the first name down on the team sheet each week. Given he was under contract and versatile on the left I would have kept him as a squad player but that's all he has been however he probably wasn't going to merit another loger term deal so why not move him on and get someone else in.

    Nothing to worry about mate, will just been complete speculation. Our captain wont leave for another SPL team. Also, the boy Gauld only just signed an extension at the end of last week, and is highly rated at Tannadice.
