    The company I work for still has advertising boards up in most Scottish clubs grounds. That's despite not paying for the space in the last two seasons and having delisted the product in the last 12 months.

    I don't think it's as easy to fill the space as some think. So do you have blank spaces or leave the old stuff?

    Would require a shit load of tipex, to be fair.

    Anyone else think we are going to be as bad as last season. 

    I think the key thing is looking at the other teams in the league. For me, there isn't a squad in the Championship I would swap for ours. A few individual players, yes, but I think we have the strongest squad overall.

    Sure, we have areas we could strengthen, but so does every team at this level, if they didn't they wouldn't be at this level. I'm quietly confident. 

  3. They seem to be treating him like a big signing, he's doing interviews for the website, wee videos from the pre-season camp, modelling the strip. The club, if not the fans, seem to be quite sure he'll be a big player for them this season. I'm sure he will, he's got bags of ability, I reckon he'll go on to bigger things again soon.

    Yup when he signed Sutton and Keane were our strike force. Mehmet got mumps shortly after joining and never really got much of a chance as Keane and Sutt's had gelled.

    Keane and Sutton then started our first season in SPL well and would have probably remained our favoured strike force until Keane got injured, something he never really recovered from. Mehmet then got more game time but Sutt's was still the more likely to score goals.

    Mehmet then scored 1 of 3 very important goals at Firpark with Sutton grabbing 2 (and a contract at Motherwell) before Mehmet became a fixture in his 3rd season. Imagine a striker getting 3 seasons to prove themselves at Saints!!

    I thought Sutton signed for Wycombe when he left us? Or was that after he left Motherwell?

  5. I did wonder why the JD signs were still on the sides of the stands. It's a large advertising space that the club should be looking to make use of. It could be, as suggested before, that although they no longer supply our kit, they are still sponsoring us on some level. But I doubt that.

  6. It's amazing that we Scots rubbish football we know nothing about. Our Clubs in Europe do it every season and get put out by unknowns. Strange as it may seem football in Scotland is not played at the highest level. We are raving about Stelios and he came from a club 11th in the Cyprus league.

    This exactly. How many times have we seen Scottish teams that would probably beat us getting pumped by clubs from "Diddy Leagues" in Europe. I said earlier in the thread, if he was available, he'd be worth a trial.

  7. I'd imagine he'd come in on trial first if anything was ever going to happen. If, after that, Jack and James were convinced, I'd be happy enough to see him sign. Depends on how fit he's kept himself, or how he's adapted his game as he's gotten older.

  8. I don't think I count as "the young generation", but I'm certainly not old. I don't hate him, but I'm at a loss to know how he can have sold so many records. To me it's just bland, not shite or awful, just bland. I think it's maybe just what people want from their entertainment these days, to switch their brains off, the same generation of people who eat up Big Brother and Geordie Shore. It's not a criticism, just an observation. People have stressful, busy lives, maybe entertainment that makes you think on top of that would be too much to take?

    The team will need to gel quickly or we will lose ground on the likes of United, ICT, Falkirk.


    This is why it's such a bonus to have 90% of our squad in place. Even if any of the trialists sign, they will have been with the squad since day one of pre-season. Hopefully that serves us well in the first few games.
