Youth team sub

Youth team sub (3/14)



  1. But by that logic why not charge the fans £30 or £40? Just because the gates' split that's surely no reason to fleece the fans for as much as possible? Football is nothing without the fans bud, especially fans like yourself who attend every week through thick and thin. They should always be given value for money as there is no game without them to paraphrase Jock Stein. I understand that £22 might be the going rate for a game in Scotland these days but it would still be a ridiculous ask for a game like this at this time of year. Thankfully our chairman was in agreement with that and at £17 I'll probably be tempted in on the day.
  2. Wasn't there tonight but the BBC guys are raving about him. Gordon Smith says ... "I've been very impressed with Hayden Coulson at left-back. He's got pace, vision, he can run with the ball and find others" Could be a Dummett esque find
  3. Stokes would be a smashing signing. He's scored 136 goals in 303 appearances in Scotland - the vast majority in the top division. He even scored 11 in 21 for Hibs as recently as last season so he's definitely still got the ability.
  4. They actually lost in the League Cup final the season before bud - Hearts beat them 2-1 I think it was.
  5. My friend Bob was a massive Thirds fan and he used to joke that this game haunted him! Saints were 2-0 up at half time and him and all his pals changed ends to see the presumed Thirds fight back in the second half - of course we banged another 6 in and none of them could believe it! In fairness what a season Thirds had that year, finishing third in the league as the Captain says. They scored 100 goals in the league that season ... and conceded 80 - certainly not boring! To think they would only have 6 more seasons before they went under - very sad and a huge loss to the Scottish game.
  6. This thread is a sure fire jinx but I'll stick my oar in anyway ... Fraser Fyvie is out of contract at the end of the season and would be a magnificent signing if we tempt him in. His injury certainly seems to have been the catalyst for the Arabs capitulation as they've only managed one win since then, and most of their fans had him down as their best player prior to that. He'll obviously be coming off the back of a serious injury and won't have played in 6 months, but he's still only 24 and has the ability and drive to completely boss a midfield. A midfield with him, Magennis and McGinn certainly wouldn't be bullied (whilst also being very talented). We'd be facing competition certainly, but perhaps not from United as you'd think they'd have to reduce their budget further if they don't make it up
  7. The Fir Park comeback to secure SPL status was by far my favourite. What a day! Gus's tearful interview at the end had me goin an aw on the bus back! The 4-4 match with Falkirk at Love Street when Martin Cameron and Lee Miller both scored hat tricks was a good one as well. Only time I've seen us come back from 3-0 down at half time. Edit: Looks like a merge is required btw!
  8. It defo looked a pen from W1, which is as good a view as there was. I didn't think our players complained too much though, which got me second guessing myself. If he did dive it was a ludicrous decision as he was right through. If he never dove, and it looked a foul to me, it was a bloody awful decision from a ref who was awful all day.
  9. Music fans aren't told what time the act comes on though. Tickets only state the time the doors open. Bands normally boot the arse out of it in fact and turn up on stage hours after doors open.
  10. The club were ENTIRELY to blame ya plum!
  11. He really was outstanding today, best i've seen from him actually. Aside from his pace and quality, it's is tenacity and bravery I love. He gets kicked up and down and just gets straight up and keeps going. Chases everything and gives nothing up. It was telling that the whole team ran to him at the third goal, as wonderful a finish as it was by McShane. Another top player from the Saints production line, I hope he gets a big move eventually but close the window now!
  12. First game of the season for me due to other commitments and what a game it was! That really was an excellent performance from Saints today, enough so that I've immediately raised my hopes for this season. Genuine title contenders. The combination of Smith, Reilly and the utterly outstanding Morgan have such a dynamism, energy and quality about them, Dundee united were absolutely rag dolled today. Wonderful quality of goals as well. Understand the defence hasn't't been up to much but it was faultless today. I like the back three and the personnel are there for that system. Fingers crossed Smith's injury isn't serious as he filled that role well today, lots of running and intelligent use of the ball. Stelios never stops either. Samson was very assured as well. I never knew Raymie but thought the applause was a great moment and would have meant a lot to those that did. Always quite emotional seeing the opposition fans joining in I think, so credit to the Arabs. Absolute joy to be there today, the best performance I've seen under JR. This could be a very, very special season.
