We've been drawn againt St. Johnstone FC who have quite a bit of history in Scotland. Like us they've never won a championship and were promoted back to teh Scottish Premier league in 2008-09.

A couple of guys on their roster that I have heard of is Derek Riordan (who we were rumored with but we denied) and Nigel Hasselbaink who they got from St. Mirren.

May the best team take it!! our fans will be out in full force. Hopefully we get to play these games at home and not Istanbul because of our shit stadium

They look a good team, like us they've parted with many players and will have almost a brand new team. We only lost a couple of starters (One being Ivesa who was starting to make many mistakes in net and then Bulent Ertugrul who we pelaced with Hurriyet)

Derek Riordan failed with them so he was kicked out, I know I mentioned him before.

They seem very confused in their forums http://www.weareperth.co.uk/vforum/s...=18428&page=23 I signed up to try and explain a few things but their site needs an admin to OK users.

If any one of them are reading, it will be very hard for Besiktas to have their ban overturned. Even their attorneys realize this making statements like "We should not get our hopes up about this case..etc" Bursaspor were unfairly banned for a minimal thing but Besiktas' troubles with UEFA are far worse. I can say 99% that we will be competing in the EL and will play St. Johnstone. I believe the first game is Thursday July 19th in Eskisehir or probably Ankara depending on UEFA finding our stadium suitable for games which I highly doubt.

This is a good Scottish team that cannot be taken lightly at all. I mean yeah on paper we may have the better squad but these guys beat Celtic during the regular season so they can hang with the best in their country. It will be exciting for everyone involved.

Anyways, Scottish football standard is POOR, it's almost League One/Two standard the further you go down from Celtic and err.. oh wait Rangers is practically a non-league team now they've been raped of their entire squad due to financial problems. I don't foresee Eskisehir having many problems with St. Johnstone.

Maybe when you figure out which side of North London you're playing, tell Platini and we can have a play date.

Easy man I'm messin with you, we missed you (and that other English Turk Koyel) in the forums. I said you're a traitor and turned your attention fully to EPL so I came and bothered you in the Arsenal forums.

As for St. Johnstone, we are in no position to disrespect any opponent. We have not seen the European stage since 1971 when we beat Finnish team Mikkelin 4-0 aggregate but bowed out of the competition to Dinamo Moscow. So yeah, St. Johnstone deserve respect :hopeful:

Only bantering back fella

Anyways, let's hope you don't get Cuneyt Cakir type refs in your European adventures. Yellow, after yellow after yellow this evening.

Cuneyt Cakir is only a good ref when the teams are Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas and the opponent is anyone outside these guys. When he has to be fair he has no idea how to manage a game.

You can't see it? I see it fine. Does everyone else see it? I'll try to find a similar one.

Edit: How's this one YT?
