    Strained relationship in Perth? Winter Breaks?

    Always thought St Johnstone Managers and their Chairmen got on well and that was key in their over achieving year on year.Looks like Tommy Wright having a good old dig at Steve Brown. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42535901 Everything coming out of Tommy Wright these days points to his days in Perth being numbered.I know Hibs are off to the Med for some warm weather training - anybody any ideas what other clubs are up to?

    Saw that.

    Good man management imo.
    Things are tight so they canít go overseas - separate the business decision from the footie decision. The good manager sides with his team (whilst Iíd imagine explaining the stance with Brown - good cop / bad cop stylee)

    How much does it cost a club to go away to these places ?

    How longs a piece of string? I'd guess what Real Madrid spend on a trip abroad differs from what Celtic spend whicb will be above what Hins will spend.

    Will all be relative to the quality of facilities, hotel, number of staff travellimg, class on a flight (or clubs private jet) and various other factors.

    That's what I was thinking. Wright is acting like a huffy teenager.

    The BBC call it a trip but the manager talks about it in terms of benefit to the team. Given that the winter break has to be planned for this must be old news as it would have been in the ops budget? Either that or the Chairman has said you can have a week in the sun dependant on where the team is in the league.

    Admittedly it's a reaction we don't normally see from Wright. He usually comes across quite understanding with regards to the clubs financial constraints, whilst at the same time not using it as an excuse for everything that goes wrong, like a certain ex Falkirk manager....

    Could come to nothing but might be worth 'watching this space'. Possibly Wright nearing the end of his tether? Will be interesting to see what happens in the summer with St Johnstone manager wise.

    It would surprise me if any team outside the top 5 are going abroad given the majority of a clubs money comes from season tickets and walk ups.

    5th best supported team Aberdeen are averaging 15,600 supporters at home games whereas
    6th best supported team Dundee are only averaging 6,400 supporters at home games
    Tommy Wright's St Johnstone are way back at 4,650, hence no sunny getaway

    Thinking back to 2016, in the run-up to the League Cup Final, we went to an overseas training camp. Ross County didnít.

    In the run-up to 21/5, we were run-off our feet with games and didnít go abroad.

    We know which cup we won and yes, we should have won two......!!

    Just sayiní......

    And JC took us away before the CIS Cup no?
    Pat before 2012.

    I think itís too simplistic. I think mibbie best as left to a case by case call?

    Ross County canít really comment as it was my boys birthday so was tending to things whilst try to get a decent mobile reception.
    Sometimes itís down to the ďfootball godsĒ ie those moments that could go either way.

    I'm sure I heard a song which tells me Hearts go to Butlin's. I believe it wholeheartedly.

    What's this European p*sh?

    The players will enjoy it more, chance for a bit team bonding, a welcome bit of sun etc. Theyíre not going to be away long enough to acclimatise to the heat so presuming it can be afforded I canít really see any down sides.

    They will get the benefits of full undestrurbed training and team together for the week in brilliant climates to refresh the batteries.
