Reviews of Our Day in May: The Inside Story of St Johnstone FC’s First Major Trophy Win in 130 Years

'No matter what I do, if I was to go and win the Champions League with another club, it won't eclipse winning the Scottish Cup with St Johnstone. It couldn't, not for raw emotion and what it meant to people.' Tommy Wright, St Johnstone manager
