  1. Looking forward to seeing how Holt does. Unusual to sign a player from the old firm and not hear a single bad word from any of their fans - seems universally liked. General consensus is hard working, energetic, wants on the ball and never hides. Exactly what we need in the middle. Not sure we'll see Drey from the start but if he's even 90% fit he should, top player. COYS.
  2. Happy with Holt. Hate loans though. Absolutely hate them.
  3. Ah deadline day. Feeding off the scraps at the masters table as we hoover up inexperienced youths and out of favour players on loan! Hopefully we can produce a quality signing from left field but rarely happens on deadline day. 'mon the Saints!
  4. Would love to hear Tommy's opinion on the 4-5-1 at home. We are a team who's best players play LW and RW. 90% of our attacks go down the wings. 2 of our 3 central midfielders barely touch the ball at home and neither offer cover to the defence or support the lone striker. They float back and forward. So the big question is, if we never go through the middle why play 3 players there? If we are asking our wingers to beat their man and cross it who exactly are they crossing to? 1 lone striker? Sorry Tommy, at home it's just pish. Unless we see Murray of old galloping forward at the hint of a ball in the box then no thanks.
  5. I'll have a go. May had 3 efforts at goal in 20 mins. 3 more than Kane has managed in the league this season. Drey Wright looked like he's never been away. Baller. Lean, fit, fast and above all prepared to attack his man, cross and shoot. Amazing for someone who's not kicked a ball for nearly a year.
  6. Surely this is paper talk. We need some experience at the back and not another loan signing.
  7. Tommy Wright is so bloody negative at home. After about 25 mins it was clear as it is every single week that Kane was isolated. How long did he take to make the switch? 65/70 mins. Shocking. We needed two goals. Two. Our home support is bad because Tommy's brand of negative football is driving fans away. Last 20 mins was better but far far too late.
  8. Terrible 45 mins. Absolutely dire. Shite formation at home with the midfield slow, static and leaving Kane isolated. Honking.
  9. I'm not sure I agree. I always felt he was at his best running onto diagonals into the channels and drifting in. If you look at his goals a lot were coming across the defenders. Agree he needs someone up there to take the ball into feet as he will be wasted at that. I know Aberdeen worked a lot on his back to goal play but if we use him like that we won't get the goals from him. I feel Kane's biggest problem is he's asked to play with his back to goal and he's not great at it either though. I recall watching him in the championship and he scored alot of headers, running across defenders. He rarely gets into the box for us. Not going to be easy playing to everyone's strengths but if Tommy figures it out we'll be incredible. I still feel we need that midfielder though so we aren't so reliant on hold up play.
  10. What if Saints have lined up an experienced/better right-back who they intend to play instead of Foster - deal pretty much done. Foster obviously knows his position is under threat and in training overreacts to Tommy because he's pissed off about potentially losing his place. Tommy then has the excuse he needs to move Foster on. Cue the above accusations from his Mrs. Truth, lies and somewhere in-between. Let's see if a decent quality right-back arrives in the next 24 hours.
  11. Big birthday bonanza coming up for Tommy today. 🎁 Present number 1 - Foster gone. 🎁 Present number 2 - ???
  12. Imagine if we'd actually signed someone.
  13. Was going to post this. Looked very comfortable there at Pittodrie in the game we won to qualify for Europe in 2015. And Craig played half a season at left back for us a few years back also. Not ideal but wouldn't let us down.
  14. I think we're all being a bit harsh on Foster the player. He's a solid 7 most games, two footed and provides good quality delivery from the right. He won't be easy to replace Foster the man on the other hand. I've always said he's a twat. From fighting and tantrums on the pitch to screaming at younger players for making small mistakes. I was surprised we made someone like that a Vice Captain. He has a desire to win fair enough but his conduct on the pitch at times is embarrassing.
  15. I've had more e-mails from Saints in the past week than I've had in the past 3 seasons. Good to see they are making use of their new toys and actively promoting some events/offers/competitions. Now all they need to do is send an e-mail to May with a decent contract offer.
  16. How long before we see the Tommy Wright article bigging up Chris Kane, all his attributes and his scoring potential? When we see that article that's when I'll give up all hope of a first choice striker joining the club.
  17. Who cares. Today is TUESDAY so we could see some signing action today. Big bulletproof Broon is in da hoose!
  18. No words. Absolutely no words for how much of a brass neck this summer has been.
  19. Hibs fans predicting they will lose at home to St Johnstone clearly have not seen any of our games this season against Forfar, Montrose, Ross County, Celtic and 60 mins against Livi. I'm holding out the tiniest hope that we will have a new midfielder and striker in place for Saturday - otherwise I'll be praying for a Vihmann shaped miracle.
  20. Admittedly Drey Wright was good to watch but there were only 3 or 4 dominant performances last season. There was a spell where Watt and Kennedy up top worked but it was only a spell. There was 4 or 5 late late goals in games that changed the whole reflection of the season though which glossed over some terrible games. I think its justified to say I've not really enjoyed watching Saints as much since the old guard moved on, particularly Mackay and Millar. They improved the standard of football considerably. I don't doubt this Saints team have potential but until we improve the central midfield and striking options we're going to be long ball merchants.
  21. Have to say, Motherwell and Dundee aside I thought we played brutal football last season.
  22. Tommy loves to bring an ex player back for another spell....John Inglis?
  23. Cue Tommy sending him out on loan and using Kane as his impact sub. I feel for Kane at times but he's had enough opportunities at this level. Hendry has done really well off the bench and when paired with another attacker. One of the biggest failures yesterday was to play with 1 striker isolated and no support from Swanson. We've tried countless times to get a midfielder to play off the striker in a no 10 e.g Scougall, Swanson, Spoony with little or no success purely because we aren't comfortable playing through the middle to feet.
  24. I booed after we conceded the second. Why? Because the players deserved it. They were absolutely shocking today. Second to every ball. You ask why we continually go long to Kane despite him having a 0.000004% chance of winning the ball? Its simple. Imagine you are Vihmann (who I'm trying to forget) and you have the ball in defence. You look up and what do you see? McCann and Davidson standing in the middle, still, with a player up their arse. Full backs are marked with Livi sitting high enough to press them if they are passed to. Two wingers again not moving or trying to run their players away to make space. Swanson absolutely nowhere, again not moving. So you wait, and wait and then you get pressed - bang, long you go. Every single time. No movement and no striker next to Kane if we go go long to keep it. So what changed? Livi fecked it up. Bad bank pass and bang, Mikey and Kennedy did well. Then the key thing for me was taking Swanson off and getting Hendry up next to Kane. Finally, movement and options and another poachers goal for Hendry. So it's simple, until we get better midfielders get two up top so we can actually go long. And sort the defence. Tommy should know this but he's clearly struggling still trying to fit in the misfits into his team. Still enjoyed the excitement in the second half though.
  25. In light of the fact we are now about to be linked to every failed/shite striker in the UK who is out of favour or can't find a club I think we should just fire big Vihmann up top and be done with it. Swanson, Kennedy, O'Halloran, Wright and Spoony firing balls into the box from all angles and big Vihmann getting on the end of it. No need for a central midfield creativity, go long or go home.
