Quantcast

Wide-open McDiarmid suits the champions

189

St Johnstone are on a run of three wins, two draws and a single defeat in six games, a sequence that has seen them move away from the foot of the table.  Defeat at Livingston last midweek being the only black mark since they were being used as target practice by those in the bottom half of the table.

They started their league campaign at Celtic Park with a 7-0 defeat.  Maybe I’m just over-cautious from a few years ago, when the same result against St Mirren proceeded a cup exit to the same opposition a week later, but this kind of result can be misleading.  Those on the receiving end can use the hurt as motivation, while the team who dished out the win learn nothing useful about their opponents.

I expect Neil Lennon will have the squad ready for the battle of four consecutive away games; motivation will not be a concern.  McDiarmid Park is also a wide-open surface.  It is a yard longer and a yard wider than Celtic Park; I expect the champions to prosper.

    You write some good stuff but it all reads like a Shakespearean sonnet as your PC seems to only go to the margin every second line! Very strange on the eye!

     

    But then again, yon Shakespeare wasn’t a bad writer in his time. It has been reported that, after finishing The Merchant of Venice, he went into his local for a well earned jug of ale only to be told by the innkeeper that he was bard!

     

    A’ll get ma jaikit. . . .

     

    Hail! Hail!

  2. The case today was linked to the Ashley case. Judge has already ruled that the Huns are in breach of contract but no figure was put on the amount of damages they would have to pay. The Judge suggested they should try to negotiate an agreed figure themselves but if they couldn’t come to an agreement then the Court would decide.

     

    There was an injunction in place to prevent the Huns from dealing with their present Suppliers but the Huns were looking for that to be relaxed. Today the Judge ruled in favour of the Huns on this one but it may be appealed to Supreme Court. In the meantime Huns were seeking 100k Legal Costs , Judge awarded them 75k.,

    James Doleman said similar and is, usually, a good source.

     

     

    We’ll done Sevco – 75k pays the running costs until Saturday.

     

     

    Have stepped back a little from following this sorry tail. We all know how it ends and legalese is boring.

     

     

    I liken the whole thing to “Murder On The Orient Express”.

     

     

    Sevco are Ratchett (the brash, unpleasant murder victim).

     

     

    You know they’re going to die.

     

     

    Which stab of the knife actually does it (Sports Direct, Hummel, Elite, Close Brothers, King, HMRC) doesn’t actually matter.

  11. No room for Christie, assuming he’s not quite match fit. Happy with the team and the shape. Hope to see Rogic, Christie and Klimala get a decent run out from the bench.
