  1. Money shouldn't come in to it. If he has any level of self respect he'd do the honourable thing and walk away. Tonight was the final straw for me. An absolute shambles from start to finish.
  2. Aitken should do the honourable thing. A set-up so devoid of direction and any form of game plan it was criminal. The players must also take a fairly hefty wedge of criticism. The lack of desire, the lack of responsibility and the complete inability to match Bonnyrigg's hunger was completely unacceptable. A few players were found out tonight; McCallum, Smith, Stevenson, Robert Thomson and Stirling being the most notable. None of them good enough, but ultimately the buck stops with the manager. I could handle being put out the cup in a one off match, but really, at the second time of asking we should enough professionalism to do what's needed. 180 minutes of dross. Bonnyrigg deserved that tonight and I'm genuinely pleased for their supporters. Particularly those with long standing family ties to the club; two of whom I spoke to at the fiist tie. Genuine football men. Enjoy the night lads and the next round tie which will really boost the club coffers.
  3. Absolutely never in doubt....
  4. Would take a point today. Notwithstanding our injury problems and regardless of Queens current form our away record is atrocious and anything we take from this should be considered a bonus. I've never seen is win in Dumfries so can't say I'm running high on confidence ahead of the match. I'd expect an even more defensive set-up than normal given our lack of attacking options. A 0-0 borefest is probably the best we can hope for. Hopefully Falkirk can do is a favour and take maximum points from St Mirren.
  5. Felt exactly the same. Sanding at Wembley watching fans clapping players who have just been far too easily swept aside by a bang average England side. Fans dancing in the concourse having just watched us lose 3-0 to our greatest rivals. No time for that at all. An embarrassment.
  6. "We have therefore identified that residential development at Young’s Farm is the only way in which the stadium development can be funded, and we have updated our proposals to make provision for this.” or "We have realised we do not have the financial clout to fund our fairytale but propose to press on regardless as a return on our investment is far more important to us than the future wellbeing of the club". Brabco are in this to make money. Fair enough. But let's cut out the crap and tell it how it is please. Don't take the fans for mugs. We're heading up the Clyde in a banana boat here; having sold the only paddle we had for a bag of magic beans.
  7. Not wanting to take the focus away fro the transfer speculation but having read this earlier I thought it would be worth sharing. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/14523181.Revealed__the_offshore_firms_buying_up_Scottish_football/ "Paul Goodwin of the Scottish Supporters Association said: “Dumbarton is the club that is giving us the most concern, given that a vast shareholding is unclear. It is back to that transparency thing. How can the punters who go along every week understand what is going on? If something is offshore, we have to ask "why?"." Basically the article raises concerns over the ownership of Scottish football club by anonymous offshore companies. This isn't exactly new and we'll all be familiar with the concerns raised by fans of our club in the past. Interesting however that it's now being picked up by the national press. Alan Jardine continues to peddle the 'saved the club' line without giving any further detail as to why this may have been the case. The setup doesn't portray the club in a great light to be honest.
  8. Send him a selfie of you riding his daughter with her wearing a Jason Cummings mask.
  9. Think they do tattoos up at the castle mate
  10. Any year now. I can feel it.
  11. Disagree. I make no excuses for the Hibs fans who headed for the Rangers end and attempted topic revoke a reaction. Why they did so rather than celebrate their clubs historic cup win with their own fans is a mystery. However this type of pitch invasion occurs on numerous occasions every year up and down the country, with the violence that followed today's. There isn't "only one set of fans to blame", there is fault on both sides. Had Rangers fans not reacted we wouldn't have had the on field fighting. In addition the police and stewards would have been in a far better position to protect the players/officials and deal with those Hibs fans intent on trouble, rather than having to focus on separating rival fans. The Hibs fans who did attack players/officials will hopefully be identified and dealt with, but let's not kid ourselves on here. Both sets of supporters deserve criticism. The biggest shame in all of this though is the fact we are discussing the behaviours of fans after what was a tremendous football match.
  12. If you can't take a bit of goading at the football without resorting to violence you shouldn't be allowed to roam free in society never mind head to a match.
  13. They're are plenty of valid reasons for why people have very little sympathy or tolerance for the "certain element" of Rangers fans. I'll make the point again; pitch invasions happen all the time. Very seldom do they resort to any sort of physical violence. Apart from today. The difference being the opposition fans complete inability to take the goading on the chin and go home like normal balanced adults. Had they not entered the pitch there would have been no violence.
