:lol:
Right on time, last Sunday, in tears, no balls to come in and explain the disaster that cost us a cup final place.
Still no mention in this post. 
Don't hurry back. :byebye


As if it’s up to me to explain
We lost 1-0 to a team above us in the league and we were denied a stonewall penalty. That’s football.
I’m sure we can all agree that this is the best Saints team in the history of this website.
Just need to enjoy it while we can.

I think that's closer to the truth.

Greatest Saints team in the history of this website :lol:............................I suggest you give up drinking and drugs. 

I'll keep my assessment until the end of the season. :byebye

No.

Coma back at the end of the season.

Here's how it'll go, if we slide down the league with  a run of miserable results you'll be nowhere to be seen, like you have been for most of the season.

If we maintain our current form, a whole two games, Goodwill, along with the team, will get as many plaudits as I, and most of the forum, can muster.

That's the way I roll.

Record since the Hampden underwear spoiling episode.  3 wins, 1 defeat, 10 scored, 4 conceded.  Pretty good going if you ask me.

McInnes under pressure at Aberdeen, hope he keeps his job.

 

Hope so as well considering a flock of sheep want Goodie to replace him.

I can't imagine Jim would want to go there.

Money-wise it's a no brainer I suppose but career-wise there's nowhere to go but finish 3rd or 4th and they're already at that level.

I'd have thought he'd want to go somewhere he could make an impact - solid non-sacking club in England for example (like Ipswich).

While Jims good the jurys still out on whether he is the best young manager in the league, I'd say one of the best.

However you have to laugh at the muppets going on about how Gerrard is so good, I agree he is good but he has been given no challenge as he has had almost limitless funds (compared to his competitors) and his only real competitor imploding this year. If Gerrard had started at a lower club and done as well as Goody or JR then I could agree but for me again the jury's out.

At least when you compare to Joey Barton (whose an arse) Fleetwood they punched well above their weight in that league and have been in freefall since they sacked him.

That's a lot of juries in there Swiss Saint. 😁

It's a bit early for that level of praise but the media have always done this sort of thing. The country is littered with people they have declared as "superstar" managers who are no longer in the game.

Like anyone else in the game, Jim is only ever 3 or 4 games away from entitled brats among the support, who have paid their money and feel that entitles them to say what the hell they want, jumping down his throat.

I always like to see a manager get an entire season and then judging. We could easily have seen Jim sacked before November and now look at us.

If he gets us to 5th place and a European slot I reckon he'll be in with the crook at Livi and Davidson at St Johnstone for manager of the year. No OF manager should be anywhere near that award.

Gerrard will get manager of the year without any shadow of a doubt.

They’ll make out that it’s some big achievement. Phoenix from the flames and all that shite.

Irony? 

So you're allowed to say what you want when you DON'T pay anything toward his wages but those who do are "entitled brats" just because you pick a different time to do so?

Calling you a fool is an insult.... to a fool.

Dunno the age difference between JG and Martindale, but Martindale has set a lot more heather alight than JG this season, with similarly tight financial constraints.

Martindale seems to be 7 years older.

Never said he wasnt, in fact I said one of the best for JG.

Martindale has done wonders, JR at Hibs, Goodie, although older Mcinnes is a very good manager even if they have a rough spell right now.

Don't like saying it but he had also done well in Europe so that will help his cause for MOTY

I think the media is becoming worse than ever for blowing hot and cold with teams/managers. Same in England, if not worse: the likes of Arteta and Lampard have been variously hailed as the next big thing/slammed depending on their last result. Same with Solskjaer - obviously they're doing ok at the minute but he's been great then shit then great then shit and now great again. A couple months back and I'd read Mourinho was bringing the title to Spurs finally. The guy at Southampton whose name I can't spell was the latest in the Southampton manager factory line, but now they can't buy a win and got horsed 9-0 for the second time in two years.

As you say, it's important to judge actual success over a season.

They have something in common.

Both were involved in the sales of sweeties.
