Double Winning St Johnstone FC Thread


Recommended Posts

he's now 33

This is my main concern, granted it’s good to get experience to assist some of our younger players (Hence why Considine signing hasn’t irked me too much, he’s an older head to work with Gordon & Mahon) but at 33 should we perhaps look at younger striker options?

He didn’t have the best of time up here before but as you’ve alluded to he was fantastic in a poor Argyle side and has done decent in Bulgaria. It’s one I understand the thinking of but confirms we’re back to the usual pool of talent.

Lemme guess, his agent is a man who denies offering players to Saints….?

So lazy! Our business so far and with this link - if true - it’s genuinely like Davidson is playing football manager but can’t be arsed with the detailed aspects of it, so is just signing folk he’s heard of and gets offered. Which is sound when you’re just looking to chill out after work but maybe not when you’re being paid six figures to manage every aspect of one of Scotland’s most successful clubs in the last decade..

Apparently Saints want Sinclair and another keeper (not Parish ) competing for No 1 position with someone lined up who has been on loan in England from parent club 

Just say it's Ross Doohan, this fannying about not naming names is just weird.

Carey is alongside your Considine/Wright/Bryson/Conway types.

"Could do a job" within the squad for a season to plug a gap, as you'd be wanting a younger, better, version tied up long term once their gone.

The issue is we're on course to only sign that type this Summer while giving them all multi-year contracts.

There are never many good keepers about but I see Ross Doohan is out of contract at Celtic. 

Just call me Allan Preston.

Worth mentioning that the article linking him to us spends the majority of it describing Zander Clark then adds "Doohan is one of a number of targets for the Perth club".

Makes sense, would’ve rather tried for Bain on loan but wages would be an issue I’d imagine. If we got him & Sinclair as 1 & 2 with Parish solely there to cover injuries I’d be happy with the goalie position.

When I heard reports that we were wanting Graham Carey in January, I was surprised to find out that he’s still playing football. Totally forgot about his existence. What a nostalgic blast from the past. I’m sure I would have considered it a decent signing (albeit not very exciting) if we’d signed him a decade ago.

One thing I’m less surprised about is the fact that Callum Davidson apparently still wants him.

I'd guess they'll try and get Sinclair a loan tbh.

I'd be happy with taking a punt on Doohan. Seems a really good "profile" for what we want. 

Much better than Jack fucking Hamilton anyway.

Best of the names that have been doing the rounds

I've quite enjoyed Davidson's magical mystery tour of players who were excellent in 2014. Preferable to those who've never played a game of professional football, or couldn't get a game for St Mirren.

I was hoping the negativity was just me at my usual tbh, and it's a bit worrying that a lot of others are at it too this Summer.

Well, we don’t have much positive to go by. Ageing player and the return of a dud. Horrible goalkeeping situation and interested in a 33 year old. That’s about all we have to go on. Oh, and CD is still manager.

Think My season ticket is still within the cooling off period. Pretty much the exact kind of player we don’t need which, given the gaping holes in the squad, is some feat by the manager.

Another number 10 in a formation that doesn't really allow for it.

Aye but this coming season is going to be 442.

 

 

I couldn't even keep a straight face typing that shite.
