Lawlor and Parish?

Question Mark What GIF by MOODMAN

Alongside our CM options of Ali Crawford and Cammy MacPherson, and right wing back options of Drey Wright and James Brown.

What a season we're in for.

Steady... We're just all overacting and over analysing what he says.

Apparently.

But... it's as if everything he says undermines anything he achieves, and he doesn't realise that it all just draws attention to his/his team's/the club's failings. I've seen the RandomGuy beef with the press but I'm still amazed that this stuff just... happens. And nobody pulls him up for it.

He's absolutely untouchable in the media. 

It's the fans on social media that are taking it too far seemingly.

He's also got massive amounts of belief in his own hype.

" Nobody rates Cammy MacPherson but I've seen a player there that's better than Ali McCann. Just watch me coach him into a megastar."

I don't think I'll ever forgive the repeated "avoiding the drop was bigger than the cup double" comments.

One was an unprecedented achievement in our history and probably the best achievement ever by a small club in Scotland. The other was simply the minimum expectation level for any given season.

I'm pretty sure he was building a career saving narrative there.

On a down note, I can't help but feel every signing will be, at best, greeted with "could've been worse" type comments.

2+ years for Crawford and Money for McPherson

Could of been worse can only be better...... right......right? 👀🥺

Hello lads, sorry to interrupt the news about your shite goalie re-signing but I've been reading your thread semi-regularly for the past few months and even I'm getting annoyed by how stupid Davidson is. "we played games in Europe and it hurt the squad" the games finished in August! I don't know how you cope.

Aye this is why most of us are in a revolutionary mood. For me over the course of the last 12 months it’s went from being a question of whether he’s a good manager or not to actually just thinking he’s quite thick. Which has all sorts of implications for his management from the bizarre interviews to the consistent failure to diagnose what’s going wrong and fix it.

And then that ends in us today giving a contract to a goalkeeper who doesn’t have any arms. It’s stupid for all sorts of reasons but considering Clark’s away and we don’t have a number one keeper, it piles a lot of pressure on whoever we sign for that position considering we have no plausible alternative if he’s shite/injured.

Seconded, this is exactly how I feel.

Announcing the re-signing of the T Rex around the same time as opening season ticket renewals is putting some demand on the marketing team.  
Fair play they’ve risen to the challenge..

Elliot was a fantastic understudy to Zander Clark last season, making seven appearances. His most notable appearance being the victory against 3rd placed Hearts at home, a result that helped us go a long way in surviving relegation.

He's not that intimidating, more Barney than T-Rex

Anyone know who the last player to score for Scotland after playing for Saints is?

Beyond Ralston last night obviously.

Bugging me as I feel there's someone obvious I'm ignoring.

Your McFadden/Conways don't count as they played for us after their Scotland careers.

Fairly easy to survive relegation if you aren't actually relegated.
