Kane did really well at Dumbarton. Did he play in a 2 there?


Played up front with Colin Nish I think.

Scored a decent amount of goals and most of them were balls into the area and he'd knock it in at the far post etc. 
He just doesn't get into those areas at the moment for Saints. 

Even if you look at his goal at Tannadice a few seasons ago. Really good header. So I have hope the overall ability is there, mentally he needs a bit of a boost as well as encouragement to get in between the central defenders etc at the right time when the balls out wide.

You can take Hendrie off the list of LB available as he’s just signed for Killie. Would think it will be Booth or Sowah now

Stop acting like you don't have any idea who Steven Anderson is. A top-tier St. Johnstone legend and icon. He will do extremely well in League One.

It's a shame that the final memory of Ando will be that attempted tackle against Ross County where he was so slow and mis-timed he's not even able to bring the player down

Make joke about Radford, two days later Kyle makes joke about me.

You're such a prison bitch, Kyle.

I'm beginning to think they're one and the same.

I’ve never seen myself in the same place as Radford before... 

Steven Anderson is a legend, an amazing servant and leaves with nothing but our best wishes. It’s fair to say that over the last 18 months he’s fallen below the required standard in the top flight but I think he’ll still do a good job in league one. 

Doubt we’ll see another one like him. A real rock and omnipresent during the most successful period in our entire history.

One of the best non-old firm centre backs in the Premiership of the last decade.  An integral part of a St Johnstone side who were largely built on a solid defence, that achieved 6 top six finishes in a row, three fourth places in a row, 5 seasons in Europe and a Scottish Cup win.  Scoring a goal in the final.

An old fashioned centre half that will stick his head on anything, will throw himself into blocks and challenges. A man who cares about winning.  He also provides a genuine threat at set pieces.  Will moan constantly at teammates.

His distribution is not a strength, and he has always had it in him to slice a clearance off into the stand throughout his career, or similar erratic moments. Overall though he's been an excellent player for us.

Hes out of favour at Saints now, cos our manager likes the idea of filling the back 4 with young players who look the part, are decent on the ball, love to build from the back, and guarantee the opposition a goal every game, sometimes more.  

If Rovers were to get Steven Anderson, he'd be a brilliant signing who would probably be the best player in the division.

Good player who poses a goal threat at set pieces up front and as stated above not scared to throw himself into challenges and blocks.  Weaknesses are his distribution and his positioning sense. Played best alongside dominating experienced centre halves like Wright and  Dubs.

Agree with the rest of your post apart from this ^^^, Ando is out because he's past it at this level. He's now even a bomb scare as a back up player. He needs to be playing every week and league 1 is probably a level he'll compete in and hopefully excel.  Fairwell Ando, thanks for that goal.

The quality that Steven Anderson possessed is not in question. You look at how successful a side we were with him at the heart of it and that is obvious. He was never the biggest or quickest so had to be a proper defender and he was one of the best in the top division. 

He's done at this level but Frazer Wright showed that a drop down a league or two can prolong a career and I hope that's the case with Anderson. He's only 33.

Ando has been excellent and definitely a big part of our success in recent years. 

A definite goal threat and very brave IMO. 

Rado Czerniak probably still has nightmares about him attacking the back post.
