St Johnstone FC Thread

Recommended Posts

Sounds like Saints are going after Stevie May as our primary target and expecting that deal to be done. We can't afford to sign both him and Hemmings so Hemmings has to play second fiddle and gets offered a loan deal instead. Hemmings obviously will pick a permanent deal over a loan deal and picks Dundee. Stevie May talks then fall through again and Saints are left with nothing. Nobody. Nada. 

Proud to be a Saintee. Great days.

Happy with the Hemmings deal, means we have no excuse to shite out of bringing May back. Let’s get this finished. What a buzz.

Heard May to get 3500 per week at St Johnstone. Incredible wages and a huge gamble.

Time will tell. If we can get the old Stevie May back then I'd say no. If we get the Aberdeen version then you're probably right.

Because May is a Scottish Cup winning shagger and the highlight of Kane Hemmings career is taking Dundee to their highest finish in a decade (sixth.) 

Any Saints fan wanting Hemmings over May is a #fakefan

Serious question  if you could have Hemmings permanently or May on same wages who would you take? Surely Hemmings out scores May easily?

What would you recommend Merkland !We are relatively unexperienced in the last decade of middling around this area you suggest! it would appear from some google research that Aberdeen have some more experience of this situation, so what would be your advice?

Well we hired a manager with a bit of ambition and employed a highly ambitious man (George Yule) on to the board. There was a change almost immediately. 

From reading this thread the club doesn't communicate or even advertise itself to the fan base. That would be a good start. No?

Wow lol. 7 goals in 72 games for Aberdeen who finish top 3 and create several chances. Hemmings got I think 23 in 36 games for a team that scraped 6th.

Happy if things go as reported - we get Hemmings and you get May.

That’s not what is being reported. May talks stalled. Again. Would be delighted with May but frankly it sounds like that one either won’t happen or we’ll scramble together a loan on deadline day.

Utter Shambles.

We’re going to end up with some haddy on loan from a low end English club. The new Sam Parkin at best.

This is just a tragic situation we’ve got ourselves in. One of the most financially stable and cash rich clubs in the league letting our two top striking targets go by for reasons that I can’t quite decipher. From what I’ve heard Hemmings was basically lined up and good to go as an alternative if May’s deal fell through. Now both appear to be off the table. It’s an unacceptable situation and there need to be answers forthcoming as to why we’re going into what appears to me to be a crucial game on Saturday without a striker even close to the required standard in our squad.

Tragic answer don,t know what,s worse misty-eyed fans like you who completely ignore statistics  or complete business incompetents like Brown and Wright who have presided over the worst close season since the John Connolly managerial fiasco. Do you see a posse of clubs rushing to sign May and if not why not.? Because he,s not worth the risk except to a club with no scouting system and no prospects of an alternative and the negotiating skills of Boris Johnson

Folk know I go every week, follow Saints all over the country, friendlies, Old Firm away games, midweeks in Dingwall, the lot. And you know what the absolute worst thing about this news tonight is? I don't really care.

So well done, Saints, that really is a remarkable achievement. Thanks.

Heard you guys have Dan Turner on trial, we had him on loan last summer and was back down the road by September back to Port Vale to be released in the summer.

Steve Brown and Tommy Wright are not ‘business incompetents,’ and any Saints fan calling them that, especially Wright, needs to show a little bit more respect. 

Football is an emotive game, Stevie May gave me my best ever year supporting Saints, with our best ever results, and completely disregarding that completely takes the emotion out of it. You can be happy checking the statistics and seeing that Hemmings scored a couple goals in the English seaside leagues last year, but neither are guaranteed to be a success, at least May is guaranteed to be a lift around the place.
