  1. Got to start this one with two up front, preferably big Sanny, who has been on good form, and Fraser. Couple of decent options on the bench, Hay and Smith, as well if needed. Starting with 1 up front against Stirling and Edinburgh has handed the initiative to the opposition so that we are always chasing the game-fortunately in those games we've managed to do that, but we need to be better from the start. Ferguson has to start too. Callaghan was a waste of a shirt against Edinburgh, so I'd get McWalter in the middle with Tezza, with Tezza linking up with the forwards.
  2. I remember Neil Irvine when he was at the Mo, good player. I also remember John Bird, who we signed from welfare but didn't seem to adjust to playing at a higher level
  3. I don't understand why Petrie insists on playing 1 up front in the first half of away matches. We offered nothing going forward in the first half, similar to the Stirling game. We played so much better in the second half when we had 2 up front. Agree with the above, in that Callaghan and Smith offered nothing, but then again I'm fairly sure Smith is a striker and not a right midfielder. Ferguson made a huge difference, giving us width on the left. Felt he and Gibson should have started on the flanks to try and get behind the 9 man City rearguard. City had the better of the first half, primarily because we let them. In fairness, their finish was a cracker, but he had so much space. Other than one other shot on target City offered nothing, absolutely nothing, going forward. The time wasting for most of the second half was ludicrous. The poor ball boys did their best but at least double that number is needed to get the ball back quicker and get some continuity into the game. A poor performance for the first hour of the game from us, but we can't be allowing teams to get on top of us in the first half of games, such as we have been recently. We played better towards the end of the game and deserved at least a draw.
  4. I see Ross Campbell has been appointed as Petrie's assistant. Interesting move
  5. Anyone got any thoughts? I have obtained a pass so will be there. Will no doubt be a tight game. Even though City are on a bad run just now, they don't lose by much. Admittedly they don't score much either, so the first goal here will be especially crucial. Montrose to win 1-0.
  6. I may have missed it but is there a date for our re-arranged fixture yet?
  7. Ingliston Park and Ride, plenty of parking spaces there.
  8. Fish shagging b*****ds
  9. It's amazing the difference a new manager can make. Football is a simple game and by playing players in the correct positions and getting them motivated you give yourself a chance in each game. He's also very vocal from the sidelines.
  10. For a hard but fair tackle which unfortunately injured the Stirling player.
  11. Big Temps was excellent up front on Saturday, mostly as a lone striker. When he finally got some support in the second half he pushed further up the field and on several occasions danced past numerous Stirling defenders. I think Fraser has to start alongside Big Temps to start with and when the Smokies defence starts to tire in the second half, bring on the pace of Smith or Hay. More concerning would be who he goes with in central defence and central midfield-we looked pretty vulnerable there the other day. Tezza and McWalter are too similar in style IMO although they both played okay against Stirling, we need someone who can link with the forwards better. Is Watson out injured just now? Could do with him back. Montrose to win 37-0 to keep up our title charge.
  12. Play off rehearsal? Pah, we're still going for the title!!
  13. He looked okay, quite small and built like a paperclip but quite speedy, had a couple of chances.
  14. I didn't think you were that bad yesterday, by far the better team in the first and even when we were on top you were still creating chances. That free header goes in at the start of the second half and you probably would have won the game. You still had chances at the end to get a point. Admittedly, you need to take these chances but the fact that you are creating them is a positive.
  15. You could be right with regards to the angle, we were a fair bit away from the incident but it didn't look like he went in to injure him deliberately and he did win the ball. Masson is a nippy wee shite but generally is more of a niggly player than a dirty one so I don't think the intent was there to hurt him. It's never good to see players injured and I hope he makes a speedy recovery
