Don’t know if it’s a bluff but the guy who emailed me the paper quote and tweet is now saying it’s a photoshop wind up.  So now have no idea at all if it’s true or not 

I wondered cause I couldn't find it anywhere . . . cheers though for your honesty in this... :cheers

I am pretty sure there was a team got in trouble a few years ago for not playing its strongest team
It is simply not fair to any team who would find themselves in the same situation as we are St Johnstone are simply handing survival to them on a plate and it should not be allowed if we are going to end up in play off at least let it be by fair play and not by some team not competing properly.
Still think Fakes will be good enough to beat Accies.

When teams field weakened line-ups and move into "holiday mode" they generally lose. See St Mirren last season playing Falkirk twice in the final games of last season.

eta - I don't actually see any reliable source suggesting St Johnstone will play a weakened time though. We will find out on Saturday morning.

As has been mentioned above - it is far from guaranteed that we will take anything from Dens Park either!

We got ourselves in this situation and we are responsible for getting ourselves out of it.

We've had 37 games to get control over our fate. It's too late to be obsessing over anything other than beating Dundee.

Take your negativity elsewhere bud.

I'm sure the Tommy Wright interview was made up by a poster on Pie and bovril. 

There's no press release I can see that confirms he's going with a weakened side. 

Seems to be the case. Reeled in quite a few hook, line and sinker. And Elvis couldn't get over here fast enough to use it as further evidence that we're doooomed

Funny how the other "made up shite" about Kearney leaving came from some sadcase with a few hundred followers on twitter trying to pass himself off as some "in the know" expert also made it on to this website in double quick time with the usual suspects taking great glee in it as a sign of trouble for St Mirren.

I really think there could be an extensive research paper in the behaviour of Elvis, LPM etc on this website.

Yeah perhaps that research paper could include quotes from Fitzy and Kearney on why BOTH of them refused, point blank to state Kearney was staying to honour his contract, and was building for next season?

I dont know who the source was, it was followed up by the media, and never knocked on the head by those directly involved.

No one can comment on next season before we know our fate this season. There can be no planning or building until we know what division we will be playing in so both are quite right to say very little (especially given the source) and concentrate on beating Dundee. It would be madness to even contemplate opening any debate on the future, it's the here and now that is the focus.

Only going to know the answer to that after Saturday's result. (or play off).

Well that dont fly as Kearney asked for, and got a three year deal! If he, and the club have not already set plans for next season then maybe he should go back to Coleraine?

Kinda what i thought to. I see the possible outcomes between:

A - Kearney has already decided its not for him, and wants his life back in Ireland, given he's never going to move his family over? (As per his contract clause compo for either party only due till season end like Stubbs. So he walks, we get nowt,but owe nowt)

B - Kearney might stay if we secure premiership status on Saturday or by the 26th?

C - Kearney, having noted how easy it was for Ross to get multiple wage rises from the board, is playing them to see if they panic over losing him, and offer more wonga? (He could make that more evocative by underlining the fact he is away from his family, has added expenses etc..etc..)

D - Kearney believes his stock has risen, and has broadcast (via the back to Ireland source) a "come and get me" invite to any 'bigger' club?

like i said either he, or Fitzy could have confirmed he will be the manager next season end of! Half a dozen simple words neither could bring themselves to commit to. How many times have we seen this in football? Just read back on Ross interviews when the rumours were rife ffs.

Given the right outcome, I believe OK will still be here and the players will immediately know who's remaining, going and offered new contracts. Hopefully with limited decision.  My opinion.

I am only telling what I read on p/b but I apologise as seemingly it was a very good wind up that hooked a lot of people. So once again sorry.

He is trawling for new players - where better than a team that sits below you, pays low wages and has some very good players to poach?  :magic

He could have a ten year contract and it could be Klopp in the post would make no difference. No plans can be made for next season until we know what league we will be playing in. Absolute basic management and budgeting requirement. Everyone needs to concentrate on the job in hand.

For the same reason that no players have been committed to or otherwise for next season. We deal with it when the season ends. 

It's really not difficult to figure out why no comment is being made over the manager's future at a point in the season where no distractions are needed.

It's really not difficult to figure out why no comment is being made - we all get that but he clearly does not . . . it it fear, stupidity or simply seeking to yank our chains? Who cares...

3 points against Dee to finish the season on a high and with bigger expectations for next season . . . :ninja

Hope not. We have better players than Hamilton.   So who would you want relegated if you were right. Sorry, I meant Wright. :whistle
