  1. He’s our third choice who’s never played for the first team, but he seems to be highly rated within the club. He was the penalty shoot out hero when our B team knocked Kelty Hearts out the challenge cup earlier in the season, so I’m sure he’ll be fine for Stenny. Plus he’s 6’5, so he must be good.
  2. A few years ago I was going up in the loft in my house and I had one of those extendable metal ladders down. I hadn't extended it fully to the floor, (schoolboy error which won't be repeated) so i got a few steps up and put my fingers in the gap between two overlapping steps near the top. As i put my weight on the fourth step the ladder jolted down and extended fully, trapping the top half of my index and middle finger between two metal steps. I was too far up to step back down to the floor and there was no one else in the house. I realised the only option i had was to continue climbing the ladder with my fingers jammed in it. Each step was a fresh wave of agony and i couldn't bring myself to do it quickly. Ended up making it up after about ten minutes of sobbing and having convinced myself I was going to lose the top half of two of my fingers. When I eventually pulled the ladder up into the loft with my other hand and free'd them they were both a dark purple and completely numb. I couldn't feel a thing with them for weeks and didn't expect the feeling to come back. However, it did and a full recovery was made. Been a bit feart of the loft since and only go up if the missus is in and i've treble checked the integrity of the ladder.
  3. Would be my POTY so far. Absolute dreamboat all round and a great captain [emoji173]️
  4. Can we get Cody Cooke back on a one week emergency loan for this one? He played 17 Premiership games for us and scored three goals. All of them in one game at Dens Park. Dundee are the only team currently in the bottom six to have beaten us this season. That 0-1 home defeat was a real low point and comfortably our worst result and performance so far. We've certainly came on a bit since then and are currently on a run of one defeat in six, which came at Ibrox. That run includes beating Aberdeen and Dundee United and drawing with Hibs and Celtic. It will be a different type of game here, it will be us that has the majority of possession. I think we will stick with the same 11 that saw off the Dons during the week. If we can good attacking performances out of McGrath on the left and Henderson on the right we should get some joy against the Dundee full backs, who i don't think are very good. Could we keep a third clean sheet in a row? Don't think so. Would take a point to keep the unbeaten run going. 2-2 again.
  5. Some lad is Rafa. The way he’s playing got to make him favourite for the final and of course he will be favourite for the French too. Perhaps it will be him that ends up top of the major tree. What a legend. Berrettini is becoming a bit of a nearly man. Regularly in the business end of slams, but never really looks like he’s going to win one.

  7. I see he’s not been in the match day squad for a while. Take it he’s injured again? Nice fella and a decent player, but probably the most injury prone footballer I’ve ever seen at Saints.
  8. We were saved by one of the worst top flight sides of all time. Dundee finished 12th on 21 points that year. Ross County are currently in 10th place with 21 points and have 16 games left to play. ICT finished bottom in 2017 with 34 points. Even the terrible Accies side who finished bottom last year got 30 points. Not even a team as bad as we were could have finished on less than 21 points. That and a penalty shoot out win against a hopeless United side in the playoff is what did it. We got very lucky.
  9. Dundee probably had the best night out the bottom four last night. Gained ground on County and Livi and avoided defeat in their last game of the season at the ground of their main rivals. Of course it is unlikely that Dundee and St Johnstone won't make up the bottom two after 38 games, but stranger things have happened. The weekends fixtures. Tough games for County and Livi, so if Dundee could beat St Mirren for the second time this season they will get themselves within striking distance of the pack above. St Johnstone have already won at Pittodrie this season, they really need something up there to keep the dream of 10th (11th?) alive.
  10. I see Kelty are running free busses to Paisley for their fans. What kind of travelling support can we expect? I remember we played Broxburn Athletic in the cup a few years ago and they brought 1600 and sold out the stand behind the goal. The same again would make for a good atmosphere. We've drawn the lowest ranked team left in the competition at home in the last 16, we couldn't have picked a better tie. Losing in Paisley to a League 2 side at this stage of the competition is the stuff nightmares are made of and would be one of the worst results in our history. However cup shocks happen, as Kelty have shown us, and that's more of a lower end Championship squad than a League 2 one. It won't be easy but i think we will have enough to scrape through. 1-0 Fraser '89
  11. Open all mics, four games on live, none of them involving Aberdeen. We get two mins of Miller and Gordon droning on about Aberdeen. Thankfully Kettlewell interrupted them with a goal else they’d still be going on.
  12. Medvedev saves a match point and goes on to win in five. Auger-Aliassame is a top player and I can see him winning a major soon. Semi line up: Medvedev v Tsitsipas Nadal v Berrettini Smart money is on a Medvedev v Nadal final.
  13. From the outside looking in, this doesn’t look like a must win game for Dundee. They’re away from home and they’re above St Johnstone. There’s only one game left between the sides after this one and that will be at Dens. Would McPake take a point? It does look like must win for the Saintees though. On paper it’s the easiest game they have left this season. If they can’t win this, what game can they win?
  14. We aren’t St Johnstone! It was 11 games without a win but plenty of draws in there, including one against Celtic. Anyway, I’m having that goal as yet another assist from Kiltie. Three games, three assists, one goal and one wrongly disallowed. What an impact he’s making.
  15. Wordle 221 3/6 [emoji833][emoji833][emoji833][emoji833] [emoji833][emoji833][emoji833][emoji833] Pulled the three points out the bag there after a slow start.
  16. Would be great if he stayed, but I can see why he’s not signing the contract we’ve offered him. He’s just waiting to see if he gets a better one that suits him. If he doesn’t, he can always sign our deal later. I imagine he will get a better offer sooner rather than later, he’s brilliant and at 28 is still young for a keeper.
  17. Only the top three have lost less games too. We’ve always been hard to beat, but we’ve just found that bit extra to turn the games that would have been draws into narrow wins. We are doing just fine. The winless run before Christmas seems a distant memory. We were struggling with injuries and COVID issues then, but that’s behind us now. With Goodwin in the dugout I always have faith that he’s going to turn it around and find a way to win games and get us up the table. Long way to go of course, but I think we can start to focus more on catching the teams above us than worrying about the teams below us.
  18. Remember seeing JET play for LivI last year and thinking he was hopeless. Seemed to spend a lot of time on the bench for them if I remember rightly. Then he moves up in the world to Aberdeen and i assumed I must have missed something. Nope, he’s still shite. Shaughnessy and Dunne had the cigars out dealing with him and Ramirez tonight. We weren’t at our best, but we don’t have to be at our best to beat Aberdeen in Paisley. At least they can’t blame going down to ten men this time.
  19. Jeez, that ‘if’ is doing a lot of heavy lifting there.
  20. FT 1-0 Yeah a fair reflection, just another routine three points against Aberdeen really. Wasn’t a great game, but we were the side who looked more likely and it’s a fantastic bit of quality to win it. What a baller Conor Ronan is, he’ll be playing at a higher level next season. After that went in we cruised it and looked more likely go two up than to concede an equaliser. Thought Dunne and Power were out best players along with the match winner. 2022 been a good year. Three games, three wins and we are rolling. Dens Park next and now just three points off Aberdeen in sixth. Based on that game we should be looking to catch them and finish above them. Good to be a buddie.
  21. Conor Ronan hates the Dons. Lovely goal, lovely player. 1-0 let’s have the three points please.
  22. HT 0–0 Meh, pretty tepid stuff all round and no one deserves to be ahead. We started the brighter and had a few pot shots but never really worked Lewis. Aberdeen then saw loads of the ball but never really worked Alnwick. Did have a curling 20 yardley just wide and Jak made a routine stop at the end of the half. It is McGrath out wide left and he’s done quite well, worked back and done his defensive role and made some decent tackles. Think Dunne being having one of his best games for us too, but did have a loose header towards the end. Nil nil draw certainly the most likely outcome. If there is a goal I think that will be enough to win it.
  23. We need to win a game without Erhahon starting at some point surely. Maybe tonight is the night… I guess it’s Ronan deep beside Power and Kiltie on the left of the 3.
  24. That billion pound figure is a bit flaky I think. But yes, he’s definitely a creepy c**t.
  25. If that’s Corrie McKeague from the RAF, the likely conclusion is that he fell asleep in the bins, got killed in the bin lorry when they emptied it and his body is in landfill. He is seen entering an enclosed area where the bins were kept on CCTV, but not leaving it. They looked for his body for ages but couldn’t find it. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/i-wish-here-devastated-mum-25008629.amp
