As soon as I got to Perth I could not get a signal for love or money.
We took refreshments in the 208 Public house, as you can see from the picture it looks like a warm and inviting place to spend a couple of hours pre match. If you had seen 207 and 209 you would know why we chose to go in 208. To be fair the staff were very friendly and the drinks were very reasonable in price. The food was cheap but cheerful though only served with a fork giving you the impression that cutlery had been used as weapons in the past. The local St Johnstone fans seemed to be glad in playing a new team for a change as they are bored witless with playing Dundee all the time. We met Lars a York City fan who had flown in from Denmark for the game . All you can say on that is Top Top effort. Lars is travelling back to York on Sunday so he can catch the Hull game before he goes back to Denmark. As the rain was teeming down it was back in the battle bus for the short trip to the ground.
A healthy following of about 200 York fans had made the trip. Our number included a few large Scotsmen wearing City shirts. It never ceases to amaze me that you go away all the time yet see new faces at each and every away game. I am convinced they really is about 25,000 York fans who attend games on a rota basis.
The ground is very best and tidy,my only complaint is the colour of the seats throughout the ground. If you at in blue and white then have blue and white seats.
You may have read reports that City dominated the game, well that is true but it's hard to judge how we are doing as looking at the high shirt numbers or no numbers at all of the St Johnstone players I think we were playing lads who were trying to break into their reserve side.
We did play some very good passing football, but as usual our free kicks leave lot to be desired.
It was a very long day but a great trip that was enjoyed by all.
