We're actually in a much better position contract wise than we usually are at this stage. From the players who started on Saturday, only Shaughnessy, Wotherspoon  and Foster (who has been 'dotting the i's and dotting the t's on an extension for a couple of weeks now) are out of contract. Goss is a loanee and the rest are signed up until at least 2020. On top of those 3, only Alston and Watt being out of contract may have an adverse  effect on how the team performs - the rest are either perennial bench warmers, loanees or coming back from long term injury.

The winter break seems to have completely killed our momentum. We obviously won our first two games back but the games were pretty rubbish and the only game we've been anywhere near good enough is the Celtic home game since, which was quite a promising performance but ultimately ended in defeat.

 

I'd think that 4 starting players (I'll include Watt as a starter as he generally has been) not being on contracts could have an impact, but take your point and it's not as if other teams don't have the same issue. 

I was pretty happy after the Celtic home game, because the attitude seemed better and the second goal was for the 'right' reasons. Quality let us down on that occasion. 

Just watched Tommy's post-match. All measured and sensible. Note Tony Watt in the background signing a ball for one of the grounds staff.

I've been pondering a little today. Whilst (in my mind) the results against celtic are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, the result at Hamilton has me fizzing :angry:

This however,

Now that the dust has settled on yesterday I’m feeling better about our position. A win against Hibs and we’re in a great position. Motherwell have a tough 3 games coming up and whilst Hibs could catch us by the night we play them, beating them would see us ahead. That would mean anything from the next two games is a bonus.

Has cheered me up somewhat :)

Foster is one, a bit like Joe, who has spells of being decent then a run where he is absolute dugmeat. He needs better competition for a starting place imo.

Pleased with this, Foster and Wright started to get a really good relationship going on the wing earlier on in the season, well suited to each others style of play. 

Look forward to seeing them link up again once Wright returns from his injury, albeit likely to be next season unfortunately.

Yes Foster does need competition and his cover at the moment is one of our two first pick Centre Backs which is not great..I'm disappointed that Comrie looks to have had his day because at one time he looked  a real prospect..I watched him with the 19's he was outstanding and he also had a couple of successful loan spells.Just as it looked like he was starting to progress into the first team squad he had that one disastrous game which appears to have killed his confidence and also TW's confidence in him.

Definitely plus one for Foster needing competition. He was poor at the start of last season but picked up after Comrie got a run in the team.

There are instances where just getting an opposed run can benefit a younger player (e.g. Tanser) but an old pro like Foster needs competition, and not from a winner.

Hadn’t realised that there’s now 3 ex Saintees in the Carlisle squad (certainly this evening). Would I take any of them in our starting line up? Probably not. And that’s not a slight on any of them as they are carving out decent enough careers. But this is a Carlisle team one place of automatic promotion in Lg2. Where would St Johnstone finish over the course of a season In England with this current squad. I’d go for mid table Lg1.

Theres a tasty irony to Scougall mewling on Twitter about not playing for us, then ending up sitting on Carlisles bench.

I think you're about right. I'd say we could potentially challenge at the top end of League One based on the absolute drivel I've witnessed down here.

The bottom of the championship is utter shite, we'd certainly scud a few of those teams.

O'Halloran off injured early into the reserves match today, no idea how serious that is.

Rangers fans on Twitter reacting to it exactly as you'd expect, itll be outstanding if he scored the winner on Saturday. 

Nah
