  1. I would hope with Ronan and McGrath then we try keeping it on the deck and using the midfield instead of going with the route one we have so far this season. These boys should be able to help get the ball up the park with pace. Excited to see this play out as hope we get it up Utd. Would even be happy if Flynn played in front of the back three and McGrath played further up .
  2. Today might be the making of his 352 system with McGrath and Ronin playing in front if the back three and Kiltie , Brophey and Main up front . Hoping we get to see Miller today too .
  3. Hopefully that could adapt to a 442 if required .
  4. A free weekend means there's still time to get a couple of players in with pace . I thought we would have got that from the loan market. Happy with McGrath staying . If we are going to persevere with three at the back I would prefer McCarthy, Dunne and Shaunessey to be the first choice three as their height is a goal threat .
  5. I think he will be fine. He,s played at a decent level and the fact that Wolves offered him a four year contract suggests that they see potential in him. I do though think that Jamie McGrath has played his last game for us .
  6. Based on previous season we will have a few still to come in. I'm expecting two loanees and two out of contract players who have yet to find a club.
  7. The way he is capable if strolling forward with the ball makes him a huge asset in a back three. Can't understand how he doesn't get a start .
  8. Kelty,s experienced players must be really pissed off , getting beat by whats in effect our third team . Well done the youngsters. Can see a couple of them going out on loan .
  9. Should have had Connor McCarthy on the right hand side of the three central defenders and Erahon playing next to Power in front of the back three . We should be defending better . Its going to be a long season.
  10. Need to have Connor McCarthy back for this one. Hearts will be dangerous at set peices . Hopefully Hearts luck runs out , they certainly got the breaks last week .
  11. Maybe Lewis Jamieson. He did well at Clyde . Very fast and works hard to close down defences . Well worth keeping an eye on Inverness,s results.
  12. I think that's how it will pan out . No hurry to sell Ethan , his time will come .
  13. Think we are doing a good job of highlighting the fact that the players are available at the right price . Just need a few more teams interested to get the right price up .
  14. Would be looking for double whats been offered and a decent sell on . Won't be surprised if a team comes in for both . I think we have to let players go if the right bid comes as that encourages others to sign , knowing that they won't be held back if a decent bid comes. Must be others in Ireland keeping an eye on Mccarthy and McGrath,s progress thinking they might fancy a spell at Saints .
  15. I thought it changed to David Hays mid eighties in an attempt to make it a Celtic pub. I'm sure the Chivas Regal Bus used to run from the Hole in the Wa and continued to do so after the name change.
  16. Was stringfellows not the lounge area next the Bob Inn?
  17. Was speaking to a footballer that was playing in a midweek testimonial at Parkhead for Notts Forest during the eighties, after the game the players all headed to Toledo Junction because that was where the action was.
  18. I believe them, they hardly missed a game early eighties and knew most of the away support. Everyone who followed Saints early eighties knew Simon and Slasher.
  19. Because the two guys that went told me.
  20. There was a Saints fan known as Slasher that used to be on the Chivas Regal bus during the early eighties who went down to live and work in London. Used to be a bit of a west ham fan. Pleasant chap, who was one of the two Saints fans that went to the Slavia Prague away game.
  21. £350,000, %25 sell on, a further £150k if he makes 25 appearances and we get him on loan for a season would be a fair deal.
  22. Heard a few Saints fans are over at the weekend.
  23. Killie looking good to romp the championship.
  24. I think we will sign a versatile defensive player shortly. But will chose not to sign any more attacking players until after the League Cup games. Josh Jack, Lewis Jamieson and Jay Henderson will be given opportunities off the bench in the sectional games and maybe hopefully one or two of them might show they have what it takes to be part of the first team squad on match days. Think we will also get a couple of loanees in during this time, depending on how we show up in the league Cup games.
