  1. St.johnstone v Dundee

    Finish Them!
  2. Strachan or McLeish?

    It's only my opinion, but there's been countless players over the years called up simply because they play for teams in the English championship or in Glasgow. A good proportion of which aren't really Scottish. Countries far smaller than ours manage far better with players of a lesser calibre. I agree we need a man manager, but not just that, we need a plan. Forget qualifying for anything for the next 4/6/8 years. Build a structure and style of play that can be implemented right the way through from youth levels. Strachan, Smith and Eck first time were all failures, keep plodding along without a long term plan and the next guy will be the same.
  3. Strachan or McLeish?

    Talk of who is/was better is irrelevant. We've been Utter failures for 20 years and will continue to be until there is a radical change. There's no team spirit, no pride in the shirt and no tactical plan. Decades of picking players simply because of who they play for combined with ignorance of our domestic game has led us here. I'd support 11 guys who might not be the best footballers, but when put on the pitch, battle like warriors and give their all. We'd maybe even get the odd result. Until that happens, we'll continue to set completley unrealistic expectations and go round in this circle forevermore.
  4. Boxing Thread

    I'm not claiming to know a great deal about boxing, but from the opening bell, DeGale looked scared, displayed absolouty no hunger at all and got owned. He'd cashed the cheque long before stepping through the ropes.

    Any streams going, chaps?
  6. Trainers

    I could probably get away with the 8.5, but I'll hold off a bit. They'll be available for less on a month or two I'm sure. Thanks the shout tho! If you love the stripes and you're on twitter, give man_savings a follow. Ive got most of my modest collection from sales he's posted. My winter Stockholms are the current choice, goretex trainers, f**k yeah!

    Those Broomfields are really smert. They're on my wish list as well as the mallisons. Keep missing them in my size. Did get the blue Munchen Spezials though, which are excellent. Green ones next I think.

    It's imperative we make sure that when he does go, there's a clause in it that we get something more when he's earned caps. It's the only way we're ever going to benefit from a call up.
  9. St Johnstone FC Thread

    Ive seen it on twitter as well, but just what do they base the claim that the Australian league is superior to ours on? "The Australian league is no joke"
  10. St Johnstone FC Thread

    Aye, he'll be gutted when he retires and thinks to himself "if only I'd signed for a big club like Dundee, imagine the medals I'd have won". Must be terrible for him, only having a Scottish Cup winners medal and a Diddy one or two from his time at newco. Still, he'll be able to comfort himself in knowing that he gave Dundee their biggest day in decades. 3/4/19 O'Halloran to relegate the Dee.

    The war chest is never ending by the looks of it. What an absolouty outrageous signing.
  12. St Johnstone FC Thread

    Was that the same game where Tommy Burns went clean through, lobbed Rhodes, but it then bounced over the bar? If so, I remember Killie bringing a huge support for that, which was even more impressive as it was a midweek.
  13. All things Dundee FC

    Nah, they were admin number one. Number two was Melvile. Three won't be too far away at this rate though.

  15. St Johnstone FC Thread

    I'm surprised we're now hitting the highest wages in our history. Infact I'm highly sceptical. In the SPL days I'd have had us shelling out more than now. We paid £125k for JP McBride for gods sake.
