  1. Sons' sorrow

    It's been an incredible 6/7 years when you think about it. There will come a time in the not to distant future when we'll look back on this era with fond memories. There will be younger Dumbarton fans who will never have seen us play at a level below Scotland's 2nd tier! In that period we've made the Scottish Cup quarter finals, beaten established championship teams regularly, taken points from Tannadice and Easter Rd and now with a comfortable gap from 9th in the league and a national semi on the horizon. Heady times indeed. We really should enjoy every minute because the cyclic nature of football means it can't last forever.

    As much as losing a late goal is always disappointing I'm happy with a point from today's game at Tannadice. Didn't make it up there but by all accounts we did well enough. I'll let those who were there expand on the performance but there does appear to be a better balance to the team than a few weeks ago, just need to avoid any more injuries and get everyone fit. We now go into a run of three tough but arguably winnable games. Brechin at home really needs to be our first win of the season and if we can get the points hopefully we can build on it with ICT visiting the Rock the following week. These are games we need to be looking to win if we're to pull away from 9/10th. Livi away round off the three. Another one we shouldn't fear if everyone is fit.
  3. **** v Hibs

    I would literally never tire of punching that face. well done Hibs, proud of ye'z. Hope you all get laid tonight.

    Kudos to everyone involved in organising yesterday, both the football and the comedy night. Paddy Flannery is some boy. Good banter and down to eart. Was a pleasure playing in his team, and with the other fans, yesterday. I'll probably put 'being subbed for Paddy flannery' in my cv. Although the missus isn't too happy that the 'popped ligament' in my ankle has turned out to be a ruptured Achilles' tendon. 4-6 weeks apparently. Two in a special moon boot. The comedy was very good value I thought and the crowd seemed to have had a good night. Dumbarton as a town has a gap in the market for this sort of evening, it would be good if the club/trust could exploit that gap on a more regular basis.
  7. Progrès Niederkorn - Let's All Laugh Now

    In all seriousness, that's a shocking result for The Rangers. Rangers will be turning in their grave.

    First impression is that I really like that. Always prefer a bit of a collar versus the round or vee-neck. Like the gold and black band which seems to be the main expectation from fans. Truth be told Nade could wear a KFC billboard and still look absolutely fabulous sticking the winner past Livi. Big man suits the horizontal stripes. Adds another 4lb of lean muscle.
  9. Scotland V England

    100 yards from the England fans yesterday. I'll take those two moments to the grave.

    Interesting to note people's views on maintenance of the stadium. With the exception of the fairly significant slope at the near side corner of the pitch, I don't see too much cause for concern with the stand itself. In a structural sense. It could do with a bit of cosmetics but is that the general concern or are others seeing more serious issues I may be missing? In terms of cosmetics, is this an area where the support could lend a hand? I know you need to be careful in terms of insurance, H&S etc but for low complex works like painting, general joinery etc maybe a volunteering day over the summer could help the club and reduce labour costs? Just a thought. On the Aitken interview, I agree he comes across very well. As he always has done. I'm glad his situation has been resolved and although it's disappointing to see players move elsewhere the hope is that we can now move forward and get the squad shaped early. Ben Gordon would be a useful signing if available but I'm sure Aitken will have his own targets lined up. Of course the quality we attract will be the best indicator of available budget.

    Sincerest condolences to you and your family. I spoke to your Dad briefly on a few occasions and he always came across as a very genuine person with a real passion for the Sons. Best wishes to his family and friends.

    I honestly don't think we'd need as many as 7 points. Would be lovely, but not necessary. Another win would give us a four point lead on Raith and a six point lead on Ayr, arguably 7 given goal difference. With 5 games left I think that's too big a gap for both. Raiths remaining fixtures are Pars, Morton, Hibs, St Mirren and Ayr. With Raith and Ayr meeting on the last day that's one less game where both can take maximum points. Raith could also be going to easter road on their title day. Maybe im being over optimistic, but we beat that mob from the wrong side of the Clyde yeasterday and the suns oot. Life's on the up.

    With Raith in freefall and Ayr shambolic against anyone other than us I'm confident that we're only one win from safety. St Mirren next week will be tough, but I'm confident with our remaining fixtures we can do enough. Yesterday's win was massive.
  14. The Robert Thomson Derby

    Morton fans having a dig at our single stand whilst Cappielow remains a h&s bombscare you wouldn't walk your dog in. sit down boys.
  15. The Robert Thomson Derby

    Worried about how big Robert Thomson would play today given his pre-contract with Morten. Shouldn't have, big man was excellent. Won plenty of headers and generally linked well with the midfield. Thought McCrorie played well. Worked hard, broke up play and covered a lot of ground. Vaughan did well and Stirling again did looked dangerous on the ball. Smith was solid. Morton were unlucky not to score but didn't do enough overall to complain. Really important win after last week and one that drags Raith back into the mix and opens a gap on ayr. Lovely.
