  1. Are you for real, or just one of Scottish Government's most deluded about all but solved transport infrastructure? Dualing the A9 and the Aberdeen bypass is not even remotely close to the "ultimate solution" to the issue of clubs from small, distant communities facing real challenges in participating in a national league. Had Montrose been automatically relegated to the Highland League three seasons back, I don't think I am alone in thinking, that the club would have been close to folding by now. These are still issues, so bleating on about how now is the time for automatic relegation, just doesn't cut it for me and I suspect a good number of other people, who recognise that things are far from straightforward as far as implementing a "one size fits all" pyramid system is concerned.
  2. We are top of the league: we are top of the league!

    I think Laszlo, the United gaffer is humming and hawing about letting Cammy join the Mo on loan. As have said before, would be a real boost to the Mo's campaign, if he was allowed to leave United till the end of the season. Commentary at around 7.00 minutes: "Dillon: plays the ball out. Here's Cammy Balantyne. Good play by Montrose." Presumably "Cammy" is in fact "Ross"?

    Hoping it goes ahead. Suppose, a lot depends on roads, even if the pitch is playable. Would relish the opportunity to go top again if it does go ahead and we don't lose.

    Oops! We need a boost for the final quarter. Last night's result wasn't wholly unexpected but still a pity to drop to second. Just hoping Stuart Petrie gets his tactics spot on against Annan and the team don't let him down.
  6. Berwick v Montrose

    That was painful to watch. I don't know if it was the standard of football or the circa. '14-'18 Great War footage vintage style camerawork that made for a thoroughly unpleasant experience. To lose the lead twice is sloppy. Hope this doesn't go down as the game we lost the League. Surrendered the initiative far too cheaply to our rivals. Really thought we would see February out on top. Hope we still can. Can, should, must surely do better than this! Please get Cammy back till the end of the season.
  7. I suppose that now even with 3 points from our nearest Challenger's remaining game in-hand and vastly superior goal difference, this means that for the first time: no "ifs" no "buts", no "what ifs", the Mo are really Top of the League! It's by a very slender margin though so here's hoping the Mo can take some points from their away day to Berwick in what is the last game of the third quarter of matches. No easy task but looking to the MOmentum of the Petrie Express to keep on rollin' out the results. https://youtu.be/bc6qFpbAgwM
  8. Mo Dynawoes as do foo's yir doos Toon's Blues... And the award for the most boringly predictable, highly unimaginative as usual headline* goes to... (*Should technically be marked down for grammatical error due to its omission of an "Oxford" comma, since only one team currently leads the division. However in this judge's opinion, this only further enhances its dross factor. ) Pause, BBC for this little beauty: Scottish League Two: Leaders Montrose and Peterhead slip up

    Not suggesting you were cocky at all. In fact that is the very last thing I would accuse any Montrose fan of being. With our record, we must surely be about the cagiest fans around. When I googled the phrase, I suppose I was just wondering if there was even the faintest ripple of expectation out there anywhere on the net. I enjoyed the article. There are quite a few well-written and insightful articles re. Scottish football linked to the Guardian website. It's definitely not just all about the Old Firm. The Grauniad seems to still manage to retain some kind of journalistic integrity, which a few others haven't.
  10. With our nearest challengers also dropping points, glad we took something from this game. Good timing for Gary Fraser's goal. Inspired substitution it seems. Big congrat's to Martin Rennie on opening his scoring account with the Mo. today. May it be the first of many. Berwick away next week: not easy but after that, every game a cup final as we hit the home straight with the final fixture against each team in the League. No easy games, nothing to take for granted but what an opportunity the Mo now have...

    As a reflection of the bigger picture, in football, all life is there: gambling addictions, sex scandals, racial abuse incidents etc. So this latest case of corruption hardly surprises me. And here's me thinking it's down to Stuart Petrie indulging in the "black arts" of gamesmanship by preventing Elgin from gaining a heads up on our defensive frailties / strategic master plan. I really appreciate the work you do on the highlights, so hope you splash out on less dodgy hardware next time round.

    No Mo vs Stenny highlights from Montrose TV? Are they being held back for a reason or did the cameraman leave the lens cap on? p.s. on a whim, googled "cocky Montrose fans" and this was 1st result: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jun/29/montrose-scotland-football-longest-suffering-fans-21-seasons-fourth-division Very much hoping history can be rewritten this time round.
  14. Peterhead Vs Montrose

    Thanks for that helpful insight. As undeserving poor we will just have to be content with the three points.
  15. Peterhead Vs Montrose

    Surely Petrie has done his homework since last time and the Mo will give a much better account of themselves. Can't fault McInally for doing his research. Allegedly cheering Clyde goals when last at Links Park on a field trip: hope that's the only cheer he'll derive from his compo that day. Must be tempting to defend tight and hit on the break but would like the Mo to rip into them from the start and not pay them too much respect when they try it on physically. This time Petrie has to have the better tactics and the team needs to play to its potential, since even having played a tough away game midweek and picking up injuries in the process, the opposition will be hard to beat. Fear no foe!
