Amazing, being in the third tier and involved in some obscure cup competitions really does reveal a lot of things you never knew before. It appears that St Johnstone is the protecting saint of the paint world ! Just putting the words Saints, Johnstone and Paints into google revealed this little known fact. Such was the success of these emulsions that a football club was named in his honour ! The most popular line is the tartan variety closely followed by their stripey paint although both are rarely seen these days !
That could be the most interesting thing to emerge from tonight's encounter on the south coast. I'll be watching of course despite expecting our boys to lose given our current form and Southampton's.
We will be without McLeod of course......best gloss over that. Would he have scored ? Well let's just say I wouldn't have put my shirt on it.........come to think of it, neither would he !
I'm really not fussed about this trophy, however, feel that a good performance is needed to offer some hope for the weekend fixture against the Dons. I think it's the best we can hope for. Hopefully Mooney will do well enough to get a start on Saturday.
Come On You Reds !
