  1. Was utter misery listening in, but the fact is yet another game without us scoring. It must be some kind of a record. Anyway, poor show once more by Saints. To make matters worse, the woman presenter on radio utters so many errs, umms and ahs that she could be Johnson’s speech writer. Our chance to win a trophy with no big guns left and we are just not up to it. That leaves the Scottish cup and relegation dogfight. Happy days.
  2. Despite the few on here advertising their largesse via paying for tv deals and turf accountants holidays, I assume the vast majority will be relying on radio coverage. I do think it’s pretty mean that bbc have no intention to screen even highlights of a national cup semifinal. Likely splashed all their budget on the English cup as ever. As for the game, Saints have confounded most by eliminating Aberdeen and Rangers but can’t see it today. Probably less awful to lose a semifinal than suffer against our perennial nemesis from Perth. Good luck anyhow later.
  3. Does anyone know if there is a highlights programme of this game on normal tv, as I know a satellite channel is showing alive coverage which most will not be able to access ?
  4. As I had a spare two minutes, decided to watch the highlights in bbc I player. Looked to be all st Johnstone and no shots from us. Was that accurate ? If so, we are back to earlier in the season. We really have to win the two postponed games we have in hand or we will be in real trouble. Fingers crossed.
  5. For anyone who has studied a foreign language, the inability to distinguish the difference between the perfect and imperfect tense in certain verbs. “I seen him”. “He’s went offside” etc. Never sure if it’s genuine ignorance or laziness. It may seem rather pedantic when there’s much more to worry about, but still rankles.
  6. I’ve not seen any full games, only the few minutes of highlights we get at the end of sportscene, and even skip that like yesterday when we lose. Consequently I’m not as qualified to comment as many of the experts on here. Rather glad though not to be witnessing such a poor goals return yet again, it’s pretty demoralising and even with what should be a looked forward to semi final approaching, I feel our opponents are a much better team. I can only hope we are able to avoid relegation and try to improve for next season when I might be able to get back inside the ground. Good luck for next Sunday as well.
  7. He was interviewed on tv earlier. Made the point he has never played here and is not up to speed on our game. Nothing wrong with that. Just as a matter of interest, how would you describe someone born in England and lived their whole life there ? Oh, and that accent, lol. Anyway, let’s hope he starts off with a defeat.
  8. I’m a Saint AT Johnstone, you numbskull.
  9. Wrong assumption. We ought to win this one.
  10. I doubt, being English, that his knowledge of our football will be great. 3 points tomorrow a must.
  11. Ok, my interest or knowledge of English lower leagues isn’t great but surely you get the drift. Stubbs tried it and it didn’t work, we had to bin all the duds he brought in. The others I would ship out are Sheron, Foley, Obika and the forward guy we got recently from Ross Co. It’s my opinion none of them are good enough for our top league. Just my opinion,mind.
  12. For anyone who might have been tempted to give him the benefit of the doubt, his destination sums it up. Our top league to non league. Was never a footballer and running around aimlessly is no excuse. Whoever signed him needs a lot of explaining to do. Good luck to the guy but thank goodness he is gone. Next job is to get rid of a few other sub standard players- all of whom have been recruited from English non league or 4th tier- and wise up to the fact that it’s a gamble that very rarely works.
  13. Damning with faint praise.
  14. I’m not the only one, of course, but within 5 minutes of watching him I could tell he was hopeless and way out his depth. Not his fault, he probably tried his best but why has it taken so long to do something about it ?
  15. Cannot be anything but an improvement on Messrs Obika, Morais and co. Has actually been able to compete in this league even if presently out of form. Also looks as if he isn’t brushed aside like a fly which the present incumbents tend to be. Worth a gamble in my opinion.
  16. Yes, me too. The deal would be a free transfer.
  17. Time to get rid of the dumplings up front. About half a dozen who are woefully short of ability at this level. Replace with one decent striker.
  18. Killie have been playing awful recently-last game apart- yet beating us. As we have no goal scorers , looks like we are likely to lose again. Must get rid of some “forwards” and get one decent player. No need to mention names of those who should leave. Btw radio coverage is pathetic.
  19. Sounded as though we had a decent amount of the ball but ,yet again, nothing up front.
