Today St. Johnstone have announced the newest member of the Saintees backroom team Ex Dundee United man and "Perth Boy" Stevie Grieve. This announcement is coming in due time as the club have announced that there should be a few signings coming in the latter stages of this week. Stevie spent 2 years at Tannadice in a successful period at the club as they got promoted back to the top division of Scottish football. He Joined under Robbie Neilson and also worked under Micky Mellon in "United's" last campaign. Tommy Wright wanted a Head of Recruitment back in 2018 so it is good to see the club moving forward and this appointment is excitement especially since he is a local lad and a boyhood Saintee.

Saints have announced this morning another pre-season friendly, adding to the two home games already scheduled against Preston North End (13 July) and Fleetwood Town (24 July), against Abroath at Gayfield Park on Wednesday the 21st of July at 7:45pm. IF a small number of fans are allowed to travel then it would be a great away day and regardless the match will be a tricky one against a solid Abroath side, who are managed by the wonderful Dick Campbell. Football season is now coming into full flow.

The Scottish Government has today placed Glasgow in tier 3 lockdown restrictions. This means that travel in and out of the City will be banned. Therefore, the previous SFA plan for fans to be at the game has been scrapped, not even a full 24 hours after the announcement that there would be 600 fans at the game. There will now be 0 fans in attendance at Hampden. This week has been a turbulent one, with not just the impact of Covid-19 isolation on our squad but also talk of fans being at the final. The SFA planned for 2000, were granted 600 and now will have 0. Disappointed for anyone who wanted to go along with the players' families but not surprised. [Hampden from the sky - Image: @SNS]

According to multiple reports over the last couple of months, it would appear that Guy Melamed will be ending his stay in Perth in the summer. The Israeli has become a key player and fan favourite for St. Johnstone since arriving last year but his exploits have caught the attention of those down south and it is feared that we cannot afford to keep him at the club. This is largely because English League One clubs Sunderland, Portsmouth and Ipswich can all afford higher wages than St. Johnstone. These clubs have all been rumoured to have held talks with Melamed's representatives regarding a possible move and despite being offered a new deal, there has been no word on a new contract for Melamed. [Melamed in action - Image: @SNS] This implies that Melamed is awaiting on improved talks from clubs down south and that if negotiations are successful, the Saints number 17 will likely leave the club for nothing upon the expiry of his contract. Devastating news for St. Johnstone as he has been a huge part of our recent good form and adds a touch of quality and composure to our frontline that we were previously lacking. It would be a crying shame if we do lose Melamed and never get to see him play in the flesh. Hopefully he accepts Davidson's contract offer and stays at the club for at least another season, he is a great player and with a full campaign under his belt he would undoubtedly be our top goal scorer in my humble opinion.

During today's Scottish Cup Semi-Final, Dundee United lost 2-0 to Hibernian. Goals from Nisbet and Doidge sealed the feet of the team from Dundee as Jack Ross finally ended his semi-final hoodoo and reached the Scottish Cup Final. Hibernian last won the Scottish Cup in 2016 and have had a pretty good season so far. Making it to the League Cup Semi-Final (where they were humbled by eventual winners Saints) and are looking good for a 3rd place finish in the league. The winner of tomorrow's Scottish Cup Semi-Final between St. Johnstone and St. Mirren will decide who faces 'Hibs' at Hampden on the 22nd of May. There will sadly be no fans in attendance, don't get me started on that fiasco. Saints will have to get past St. Mirren before even thinking about the final but if they can make their way past the 'buddies' Davidson's men will be confident of perhaps pulling off an unprecedented cup double. Lets hope they boys can pull off the result we all believe they can. [Conway celebrating against Hibernian - Image: @BBC]

St. Johnstone boss Callum Davidson has revealed that Saints' first choice goalkeeper and Cup hero Zander Clark will be fit to play on Sunday. The 28 year-old was previously a doubt for the Scottish Cup Semi-Final clash against St. Mirren, even missing Saturday's win over Hibernian in Edinburgh. Although Elliot Parish is a capable deputy, catching the eye of many fans following his standout performance in net on Saturday, Clark is certainly our first choice keeper and it is a massive boost to have him back in the side. Clark injured his toe during the celebrations following St. Johnstone's unlikely penalty shootout victory over Rangers at Ibrox, with his performance earning him SPFL TOTW star man and a place in the hearts of St. Johnstone fans for eternity. Callum Davidson confirmed the news on the 5th of May when he said: "Zander is good. The toe injury has cleared up so that is a positive for Sunday. As good as Elliott Parish was against Hibs, it’s good to have Zander back." [Zander wheels away in celebration - Image: SKY SPORTS] Positive news for sure and having Zander back is great news and gives us the best possible chance of winning if we have our strongest players available. He also confirmed the fears of St. Johnstone fans regarding Scott Tanser's late injury in the match against Rangers, saying that: “After I saw his ankle and how swollen it was, I was actually quite pleased with the scan result. He will be there or thereabouts for the pre-season of his comeback.” [Scott Tanser in action - Image: @SNS] This confirms that Tanser will miss the remainder of the season.

St. Johnstone winger Michael O'Halloran is out of contract in the summer. The 30 year old winger re-joined Saints in January 2019 and has played a lot of games for the club, wracking up more than 70 appearances in that time. O'Halloran has won both the Scottish Cup and the League Cup during his various spells at St. Johnstone (that sentence will never wear off) and is certainly a key player. While some would argue he is not quite at his scintillating best he does offer a good option and you would rather have him in our already small squad than not. However, other teams have taken notice of the speedy wide-mans contract expiry date being mere weeks away. Fellow premiership outfit St. Mirren are interesting in O'Halloran's services according to reports and are set to make him an offer in the next few weeks. This means that Saints need to act fast and tie the winger down to a new deal if we wish to keep him at the club. O'Halloran recently said in an interview that St. Johnstone is the club he has been happiest at, and that he would love to extend his time in Perth beyond the summer. This means that the ball is in St. Johnstone's court. I firmly beleive that O'Halloran should have his contract extended as he is a good solid player who always offers something different to Callum Davidson's side. A new 1-year deal should be easy enough to sort out. [O'Halloran celebrating his goal against Clyde - Image: @SNS]

Following St. Mirren's 3-3 (5-4 after penalties) victory over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup today, the draw was done on BBC Scotland directly after the game. The teams in the hat were St. Johnstone, Hibernian, Dundee United and St. Mirren. Saints were ball number 3 and were matched with Saints will travel to Hampden on the 8th of May to play in the Scottish Cup Semi-final against St, Mirren. With the other match being Dundee United vs Hibernian. St. Johnstone beat Rangers 4-2 on penalties following heroics from Clark to secure their place in the semi-finals in spectacular fashion on Sunday night. St. Mirren are arguably the weakest team left in the competition so Saints will be confident of making another cup final! [Zander Clark celebrating the late equaliser - Image: SKY SPORTS ]

As you may have seen, earlier this week Rangers' loanee Glenn Middleton, discussed the possibility of extending his stay at St. Johnstone beyond the summer and revealed that he would be open to staying in Perth next season. More on that in the post linked below. Middleton Quotes - Glenn Middleton Looking to Return to St. Johnstone Next Season. | All Things Saints (allthingsstjohnstone.com) Well Callum Davidson has now voiced his opinion on the matter. The St. Johnstone boss clearly rates the young winger and has confirmed that if it was possible, he would keep Glenn at the club next season. The ball is in Rangers' court. Davidson said "Glenn has had to be patient but he's come off the bench against Ross County and scored the goal that got us into the top 6. That's some achievement." "He's worked really hard from the day he arrived here and the more I can get him involved, the better he'll be for us. But if he does unbelievably well for me in the next 5 or 6 games I probably won't get the chance to keep him!" "He's great about the place, he wants to learn and has a really positive attitude about everything he does." "We'll be looking to get him more game-time and then have a conversation with Rangers about next season. Hopefully that's something we can think about" "I think he's at the stage in his career where he now needs sustained matches" This interview is telling and shows us that Callum really rates the talented wide man. I personally think it would be a great bit of business for the club if we can get him to return as he certainly makes an impact and adds something to our squad. The final decision is down to Rangers now as he is ultimately contracted to them but the deal makes sense. It seems to be good for both the club and the player, it just depends what his parent club want. [Glenn Middleton in action for saints - Image: @SNS]

On-loan at Saints winger Glenn Middleton has said that he would be willing to extend his stay in Perth beyond this season. The 21 year old, who is contracted to Rangers until summer 2023 has played 7 times for Saints since his January loan move. His most notable St. Johnstone moment so far was his goal against Ross County, the 86th minute winner coincided with a late Hamilton equaliser against St. Mirren, therefore securing an 8th top 6 finish in 10 years for Saints. [McCann and Middleton celebrate his crucial goal - Image: SKY SPORTS] This has been Middleton's most successful loan move so far, with spells at Hibernian and Bradford coming to little, with the forward struggling for game time and form, his time in England being disrupted by the pandemic. He has had a decent amount of playing time in Perth so far and started last Saturday's narrow defeat at home to Aberdeen. Middleton is highly rated in Glasgow and adds much needed pace to our front line, his agility and sheer speed has proved an excellent out for Davidson's side and he has provided a much needed spark in some previously flat games. Middleton himself recently said in an interview "I can't look too far ahead. For me just now, it's about trying to play in every game for St. Johnstone and making an impact for St. Johnstone". "I am under contract at Rangers and that means they are in control of the situation moving forward. I've no idea what the summer holds for me in terms of going into next season. But if there is an opportunity to come back to saints then I'd seriously look at it because I have really enjoyed my time here". "It's a great football club and the people in every department are top class There is a great deal of belief in this squad. We are desperate to win every game. The squad made me feel welcome from the first moment I walked into the dressing room" *Quotes taken from Not the Old Firm, link below* Glenn Middleton open to leaving Rangers for St Johnstone next season - Not The Old Firm What do you think about this? Personally I would love to see Glenn extend his stay as he is a young talented player.

The Scottish FA have just announced that due to the funeral of Prince Philip all cup ties scheduled for a 3pm kick off on Saturday the 17th of April have been pushed back and will now begin at 5.30pm. This means that Saints 4th round Scottish Cup tie versus Clyde has been moved accordingly. Saints will kick off at 5.30pm on Saturday to find out which side will take on the winner of Celtic vs Rangers in the 5th round of the Scottish Cup away from home. If St. Johnstone can win in both of those ties they will find themselves with a very real chance of cup success, for the second time this season.

In less than an hour Saints kick off against Aberdeen in the first game post-split. This is the Line-up which Callum Davidson has chosen. Formation - 523 Starting XI Clark Rooney Kerr (C) Gordon McCart Booth McCann Bryson Middleton Kane Conway Bench: Parish, Brown, Tanser, Craig, Wotherspoon, O'Halloran, May, Melamed, Gilmour. A line-up very few would have predicted and a lot of changes, Wotherspoon, Melamed, May and Craig all rested with starting births handed out to Conway, Middleton, Kane and Bryson. Callum rarely gets it wrong and its a strong side. COYS [Saints players celebrating a goal - Image: SKY SPORTS]

News coming out of St. Johnstone in the last 48 hours indicates that head of football operations Kirsten Robertson, who joined St. Johnstone after leaving Kilmarnock in 2019. Ex-Kilmarnock and current Raith man Scott Boyd is touted as the direct replacement in a backroom staff reshuffle. While the actual work that Robertson does is a mystery to most fans, she has played a key role in singings and contract renewals in the last few years, we wish her all the best for the rest of her career and welcome Boyd who is an exciting addition. What do you fellow saints feel about this news?
