Double Winning St Johnstone FC Thread

Do you have to make a statement with the likes of Kerr? Like can you develop him for years, turn him into a regular and captain, then lose him for nothing?

They've just won the double, if they somehow manage to beat the calibre of teams we will be facing in the next month then I think they deserve to leave for nothing as they'll have repaid St Johnstone FC with something worth a lot more than money.

Yeah I wouldn't begrudge them a move at all, it's just I feel like setting precedents are important.

Getting a decent fee for Kerr, and McCann, feel important long term.

Tough decision for Saints. Keep your best wing back for a season or accept a bag of jelly beans for him. 

Not sure what Rooney does either. Stay for another month and play in comfortably the biggest game of his career, of move to the English 3rd tier to play for Rotherham.

We might have real issues after we're inevitably papped out of Europe, mind you. Losing these players in the final weeks of the window could be a killer.

Rotherham will pay what St Johnstone are asking. They seem to be quite easy to negotiate with.  I’d say he’s more likely to move at this point.

Yeah I'm still expecting us to lose at least 3 from Rooney, Kerr, McCart and McCann in this window, I just think they might be willing to wait a month.

More and more English clubs will be looking at them as time goes on.

Rotherham came out 2 weeks ago and said they will pay what they want and not us. I’ve a feeling this is them chancing their arm with another lowball.

Losing one of the three isn’t the worst, but potentially losing McCann, Kerr and Rooney all within a few weeks is criminal.

Glad to see the club agree with me that they need more bodies involved with that side of things tbh.

Shame it's typical Saints and its about 3 jobs in 1

I am sure many of the staff who have been doubling up to help in the ticket office, working very long hours will be glad to see this role filled.

Its a good sign the club are confident of the return of fans in significant numbers as well.

Quite common when working for smaller businesses like football clubs though. Something isn't quite a full time role on its own right so you combine the duties to make sure it gets done.

I know it's much easier when he's just won a couple of trophies and overseen the best season ever, but CD's approach to the transfer window is so night and day compared to Tommy Wright.

With TW it was all doom and gloom and actually quite disheartening as a fan, with Davidson you just get the impression there's a plan, there's also a plan in place if that falls through and he's unlikely to starting bitching about SB for not throwing enough money at Rory Fallon 2.0

It won’t surprise me if they’ve been waiting for the European draws to occur and work out rough income and costs before approving transfers.

If this was wright, well your right he’d have been in the paper bitching that we’ve not signed someone by yet.

We made a couple of announcements right at the start of pre-season that we knew were happening, they’ve obviously now thought of what they want and perhaps been waiting on activity elsewhere. Although after clives recent behaviour I wouldn’t be surprised to see Melamed awkwardly turn up in the next week.
