  1. Agree Stephen was well out of touch and game passed him by and should have been hooked earlier Erhahon is so young and out of position at left back he needs to go out on loan get games in his true position and build up confidence this would do him the world of good alas Gary McK cannot perform now in a flat back four and will feature only in a three central defence style all in all we need to sign around eight players min much to be done one wonders what Messrs Fitzpatrick and McPherson have been doing for the past seven weeks.
  2. The powers that be really have to look at the setup most clubs are just getting up to speed teams should be allowed a maximum of two trialists and use of all named subs moreover why are the likes of the old firm waltzing into the third round I know they are involved in Europe but they are being allowed to play friendlies today whilst we are playing three ties in a week all wrong to me.
  3. Oran is quite clever here bad enough twice weekly trips to NI but to turn this into a daily commute is frankly outrageous wouldn’t pay him a penny in compo he is going back to teaching and will most certainly be Colraine manager very clever chappie.
  4. Lets simply wait until we all know the facts much as I like Oran we all know that managing a full time professional side is virtually 24/7 the present arrangement is far from ideal he has stated already he normally flies home Sat evening comes back in time for Monday training goes home again midweek for one night it really is not great for him or more importantly for us we all know managers are out looking at opponents etc and scouting for new players attending other events we really need this whole thing resolved pronto I can only assume it was agreed that it would be fine to commute for the initial period of the contract after which the situation would be reviewed.
  5. ALBIONSAINT of course Dundee played on the Sunday against Celtic.
  6. Oran appears as a nice guy but in my opinion he is out of his depth at this level.Far too big a jump from part time Irish football not helped by still commuting from Ireland understandably for family reasons.Intrigued however that he chose to go to the cinema in Glasgow rather than travel to Dundee to monitor this Saturday’s opponents.Quite strange really.
  7. Bit concerned now with Kearney but we are simply not good enough.Concerned also that he didn’t take the opportunity to watch Dundee in the flesh against Celtic preferring instead to go the cinema in Glasgow.Long term he has to move permanently to Scotland and stop all this commuting to Ireland.Recognise he has family there but he will have a decision to make long term.This situation is not perfect.
  8. I have already commented twice on this totally hopeless guy called Andrew Dallas pretending to be a Grade 1 Official would he Dallas have ever ever awarded either Rangers or Celtic four pens to either side in an Old Firm match.The answer is perfectly obviousl. He has made so many basic errors on this and previous seasons he should immediately be sacked by the SFA.We should most certainly insist he is never invited to officiate at any future match involving Saints.
  9. We should all save our dough and don’t go to Ibrox and Parkhead in fact w3 should the team should not bother turning up just give them the points.No chance of a fair deal with those thoroughly incompetent biased so called refs who clearly cannot wait to give pens an£ appease the home support.Totally disgusted today I absolutely despise the Old Firm.
  10. Quite honestly this ref Dallas is utterly hopeless and totally totally out of his depth at this level and is purely there because of his father.OK should just take the team off the park now.All we ask for is just and fair officiating and we are not having it here.
  11. I was impressed with Mark Russell when at Morton.He is a Paisley boy and would be a useful addition to our squad.Hope Tony and Gus are aware of him.
  12. Fact is despite all our misgivings today we know very much where improvements are required.Hopefully it is a busy week on the transfer front.Fact is however Hibs should have been down to 10 just after the break Gray’s ridiculous challenge on McAllister was worthy of a second yellow but alas the Ref bottled it.Is Ferdinand fit? And if he is surely he should start.
  13. I certainly never expected to win at Celtic Park but quite frankly we were absolutely woeful for goodness sake we are supposed to be full time pros.We had no pass marks our team had no shape character or desire.We had a sub subbed that’s how bad it was and shockingly bad on leadership.We have only a very short time to add to an extremely poor squad.I am now beginning to lose faith on all fronts.
  14. I am absolutely raging at this decision to transfer Cammy to Utd.Our official Player of the Year last season.A 24 year talented player who made nearly eighty appearances for the Dons before we were lucky enough to have him at Saints.Our loss is most certainly Utd’s gain.OK says Cammy wants to play football and he cannot guarantee him game time.What absolute bollocks.We should be building a team around him.I am really really annoyed at this transfer which could have been avoided.I just say this why is Flynn still with us and Cammy gone?
  15. More than that Cammy has been a smashing player for us.Stubbs just destroyed his confidence in a short period.For those he say he can’t play in the top league well he managed to play almost eighty times in the Premier for the Dons.Will be very sorry to see him go if that is the case.
  16. If Cammy Smith is punted my season ticket will be unused for the rest of this season.
  17. Should Cammy Smith be punted my season ticket will be unused for the rest of the season.I have always been of the opinion that we were fortunate to have him at our beloved club.
  18. Stu; Yes Jordan played in the League Cup against Killie and played well until he fell awkwardly on that awful surface and was sidelined for a few months.He is a decent player and will do well at Alloa.On the subject of Jon who is a personal friend of mine he is doing well at Alloa and played against Utd on Saturday and apparently played well.All Jon wanted was a chance at full time in the end Danny treated him badly and accused him of feigning injury during the warmup of a Premier match at home against Killie.The following week he was paid off the remainder of his contract and sent on loan to Cowdenbeath.Jon is now doing well playing part time and working in the Fire Service.
  19. Press reports indicate we have registered an interest in Aberdeen midfielder Greg Tansey.Interesting times ahead.
  20. Well I am of the opinion we will get at least a point.We are not playing badly and no team is horsing us.Perth Saints are a good side and we should have had at least a point.Yes Killie are good and are playing well but every side will have a dip in form that’s just the way it is.So come on let’s give OK our support and we will get a result.We should have had a result against them last time round but for the Tory MP guessing the ball had crossed the lineCOYS.
  21. Lets be quite clear no team has really horsed us this year apart from the Tynecastle and Pittodrie results.We were most unfortunate in a few games at home in particular St Johnstone Rangers Aberdeen Hibs and Killie.Recently one manager said apart from Celtic teams are capable of results against each other.There is no doubt whatsoever in the few weeks in charge Stubbs managed to assemble a questionable squad and deflate a few of our Chamionship squad notably Cammy Smith whose confidence he managed to destroy.There is no doubt the bulk of our support rate Cammy indeed I consider we were very fortunate to acquire his services from The Dons.I thought Cammy tried ever so hard against The Perth Saints and should not have been hooked for Flynn.All said I think we have more than an even chance of retaining our Premier status this season and the Window will be interesting.With the right additions I am more than hopeful.COYS.
  22. I was sitting quite close to the throw in and at the time I said to my wife it should have been our through as it did appear to come off the St Johnstone player last but then the ref and the asst ref on the main stand were indecisive throughout the entire match.
  23. I would very much doubt Watt is on that figure they barely get 3000fans coming in apart from games with the Old Firm granted they are a well run club. I was so sure we would get a result here especially after the boy Kennedy was subbed.We lost because of the poor use of subs and our inability to manage the final fifteen.The replacement of Cammy with Flynn was shocking.I like Oran and I wish him well but he has to learn fast.
  24. Stefan is a smashing player he is an Edinburgh boy who played for Livi then went to Sheffield Utd where he performed really well.Dont know the reason things have gone wrong at Perth but wouldn’t mind if we had a look at him.
  25. Yes I was at the match v Argentina Iain Munro was an outstanding left back think also Billy Thomson and Frank McGarvey were in that squad also.
