  1. Seem to have went way off topic here. Has there been any Ticklefeet sightings today?
  2. Yeah to honour the great man - for this weeks tune play list I think we need to bombard them with requests for Alexandra Stan - Mr Saxobeat. Chorus lyrics of course replaced with Andy Ticklefeet.
  3. That's the very man!
  4. Yeah that's ticklefeet alright. Used to recall him, after everytime a shot went high or wide he'd throw his arms out outrageously shielding himself even though the ball had zero chance of hitting him. Taes oot for Ticklefeet.
  5. Aye there's 2 clappy boys at present, both sit within 20 yards of each other. The clapper who claps on his own for about an hour after everyone else has stopped. Then about 10 rows in front of him slightly to the right there's the seal clapper, as I like to refer him. The boy has an outrageous clap similar to that of a seal in one the shows you'd go and see when your on holiday at the animal park.
  6. Used to dread being drawn at the South Stand end as a ball boy. He'd come along and wouldn't leave. Dependent on the time of year he would slip in the old: "Your feet must be sweating with all the running" or "Bet you've got 2 pairs of socks on tonight". A guy I know claimed Mr Ticklefeet handed over cash to him and in return Andy was allowed to tickle his feet. Took the money and gnashed and sat up the back of the stand and was a tenner up he claimed.
  7. Best. Meltdown. Ever. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]
  8. Home is ace! Anyone there know sizes and if they have ones for young kids? Wee man is aged 4-5
  9. Ross Raith Rover placed at 20/1 the night for those that follow it!
  10. Anyone ITK regarding the strips? Never bring a size out for infants - think last seasons smallest size was 5-6 years. Grippit for the wee man and he wants one too but thinking it's going to be the usual and no infant sizes.
  11. So because he picked up the ball from the back 4 it makes them two different type of players? Matthews was probably the more defensive minded out of the pairing from the games I seen so I was expect him to be deeper and creating that link between midfield and defence. Point I was making is that they are really similar in both their in that they both work hard and try hard, both are good at interrupting and breaking up play, none of them possess that real killer final ball at times and neither really chips in with a lot of goals. For me you can't have two central midfielders who are too similar, if they play in a two that is. If it's a 3-5-2 day, with 2 protecting the defence then it's a different ball game. We've made two cracking signings up top for this new campaign who need the service to bang in these goals. These 2 young lads were paired in our midfield a few times last season and overall the amount of times we netted was poor. Can moan about McManus we"was pish" etc. But from the games I saw last season these guys had zero service at times and at most times had to try great their own half chances. I just fear that we go into the season again with this pairing we could go down the same route. Could be proven wrong though as we were run by two poor managers last season. So for me personally would pair one of them with someone a bit more creative and let Matthews/Callachan do the dirty work as they say.
  12. Don't really see all the hype over Callachan. Tried hard and works away tirelessly but just not got it for me. Doesn't chip in with many goals and can't pick out that killer pass which can unlock defences. Him and Matthews similar players for me, if it's 2 in midfield we opt for would rather one of them paired with a more creative minded player. From what I saw last season in terms of breaking up play, would maybe say I prefer Matthews.
  13. More along the lines of Handling as well as setting up attacks. I've been racking my brains the past 10 minutes to think of someone at our level to highlight but best example i can think of so bare with me [emoji23]... Chelsea with Kante and Fabregas in a midfield pair. Kante is the workhorse and does the dirty work where Fabregas sprays passes left right and centre, starts attacks and generally puts his stamp on the game. It's not the best example obviously because we're the Rovers but hopefully paints a better understanding of what I'm getting at!
  14. Aye it could work with Vaughan in a 10 role - it'll be interesting to see what formation Smith will adopt because you'd expect Buchanan and Spence to be paired up top. I'd just personally would like to see us bring in a midfielder who looks to dictate the play and get on the ball as from what I seen last season there wasn't a great deal this, and from the players we have signed up I just don't think any of them fit that bill.
  15. I would rather Docherty if he comes in as a left back as I think Matthews and Callachan are of the midfield mould who work hard and do the dirty work. Really hope we can sign a creative midfielder who can chip in with goals and provide service for the strikers.
