The older I get the faster I ran as a youth.

Story of my life, these days.

 

Thinking I  was running reasonably well currently, I went on a wee circuit I used to do in the days when I was running at my best/tapering for a marathon.  To test myself.

I was pleased with how I was feeling as I ran the course.  Checked my time at the end...

Best I ever did was 17.5 minutes - today it was 27minutes!  :(

Fair enough, there are a couple of hills on it and today was very muddy/slippery on twisting trails in the forest, but... I definitely ran it VERY fast as a yoof….

At least you are still doing it bud.

I may have mentioned this on a few occasions but I played alongside Alex McLeish at school and between us we went on to win 77 caps for Scotland. 

I won't lie. I had to look that up before I understood it. :D

I know of nothing solid, just heard we still had space for 1 more and were considering a few possibilities . . . 

Hope we get a proper no nonsense centre midfielder

Yip seems to be the desire of most Saints fans . . .   I would not be surprised if it is not also true for our management team too . . . :ninja

Might be more need now that McGinn has injured his hamstring. I've said before, what he brings to the team will only be obvious when he's not playing. Hopefully Tansey or young Ethan can step up to the mark.

I fear that a central midfield of Tansey and Ethan is far too lightweight. If that is what we go with, I hope I'm proved wrong.

Badly need Magennis back as an option. Agree we need a tough as nails no nonsense midfielder who will run through brick walls for us. Are we relying on injured players returning rather than spending? I thought Hodson done a rather good sweeper job behind midfield second half Vs Alloa. Similar minded player needed for that role?

When we lose possession we seem to be all over the place with big gaps forming in the centre of the park.

I thought God's son  was a keeper - old joke I know   "Jesus saves".

I agree that is what OK was planning on having Hodson as our DM (not a sweeper), but he got injured. 

I do think Magennis fit could play this well, but he is also creative. It needs to be someone fast and hard - and who is not up the park when they counter attack ! :spud7

I fear we may not see Kyle for a while. :mellow:

Where is Cammy McPherson? He is not listed as injured but is not featuring. I really rate this young guy in midfield and would have him play before the likes of Tansey.
He was injured a couple of weeks back. Not sure what the situation is now.

He's been back in training since last week.

There's an article in the PDE headed "Kyle is nearing a return to action"..

Training or trying to is one thing playing is something totally different.

Positive spin and all that but hope.

I may be wrong though.B)

Not positive spin at all.

Just stating a fact.<_<
