Where is everyone? No one wants to watch a football match on a nice Spring day?

Very disappointed in SiriusXM's inability to broadcast the League One play-off for a repeat of week old Chelsea match. I doubt its a rights issue - someone needs to get a grip. Broadcasting an hours worth of build up to a match then announcing a repeat.....

...... Followed by St. Johnstone......



St Johnstone have crashed out of the Europa League to Lithuanians FK Trakai.



A solitary goal defeat in the capital Vilnius sent Saints tumbling out of the competition at the first qualifying stage.



Maksim Maksimov was the man to grab the late winner for 10-man Trakai following constant pressure from Tommy Wright’s men.



Spurning chances was again the problem for the Perth squad on what was another disappointing evening for
Scottish football .
