  1. Err, wouldn't that be us? Don't think pundits saw things shaping up like this, earlier in the season. Still a long way to go but the number of players scoring goals is a plus i.m.o. Other teams will get wise to how we are winning and try to snuff out our threat but I think Petrie has enough tactical nous to keep on churning out results. It hasn't felt this good being a Mo fan for longer than I can remember. I only wish I could watch them myself. Might be back in Scotland in May, so hoping I might just manage to take in a match then. Hopefully they will still be at the races come then. Just looked at fixtures and there are no matches in May, so would gladly not watch the Mo then if it meant they'd already won it.

    Six goals in two games, good enough for you? Eating up that goal deficit against the Blue Toon. Fabulous Angus Riviera microclimate and foresight of those who installed artificial pitch to allow winter football together with kindly scheduling, all means we're top of the league and I'M LOVE, LOVE, LOVIN' IT! https://youtu.be/-YV7thZFA_4
  3. Montrose v Elgin

    Safe travels to all making the trip down from Elgin. I suppose by now it's probably too late to travel by train, so hope your gritters have done the business and that everything will be okay for your journey here and back up north. (Just to clarify, that by here I didn't mean Vientiane, Lao People's Democratic Republic, I mean Links Park, Montrose, Angus, Scotland.)
  4. Montrose v Elgin

    Reminds me of this...
  5. Ditto - well hopefully past Elgin at least! Still V. happy .
  6. Yet again the Scottish weather presents us with an opportunity not to be missed. Unless of course, we do. Let's hope not. Predictions? And this for Blue Toon fans...

    Really? We are not talking Man City here are we? McAlister has hit some form but isn't this essentially the same team relegated last season? What other evidence can you provide to justify your description? They are ahead of the Mo on goal difference. Most of these goals have come from one player. You could argue we are too dependent on Templeman but we are far from being a one trick pony. Are we over-reliant on talismans as the likes of Clyde are with Goodwillie? Or are we scared of losing too many of our loan players? I can only comment based on highlights and stats but surely we aren't as far behind Peterhead as you suggest? Would they really be anything that special without McAlister? I get fed up with seeing his face on the League 2 section of the BBC sport website. He certainly seems their poster boy but he isn't exactly Neymar is he?

    The result tonight could have been better but it could have been worse. Now the game in hand is no longer hanging over us, the Mo can kick on and focus on winning each game as it comes.

    Please do not make the mistake of crediting the pyramid system for Montrose's change in fortunes. That is a total non sequitur. The pyramid may or may not be a good idea but it certainly has not led to a change in Montrose's fortunes. The narrative that Montrose languished at the bottom of the lowest division for years, secure in the knowledge they would never be relegated is the kind of fake history, favoured by simplistic ideologists. It is not rocket science. It is not magic or good luck. It is not "the pyramid system". The reasons are found in a host of other clubs operating on very slender resources. The club's improvements are due to a great deal of dedication, sacrifice and hard work by real servants and supporters of the club. As for Montrose being "very, very average and beige... functional": you are of course entitled to your opinion but for now, being and remaining at or near the top of the league is the main priority.

    No intention of disrespecting Clyde's performance. If however the Mo are serious promotion contenders, they have to view anything other than a win as points dropped.

    Clyde fans gleefully sounding off about official Mo Twitter criticism of referee. If club is fined it is a pity but a silly mistake to make. Still, not that big a deal in the scheme of things. A couple of points dropped but I think Clyde away was never going to be a stroll in the park. Whatever happens on Tuesday, we need to maintain the momentum built up so far. Every game is important. There are no easy games for the rest of the season.
  13. Shoogly peg, well maybe but we are still top of the league despite not capitalising on Stirling's slip-up. The Blue Toon must be eyeing this place up, but for now at least, I am glad we are still here.
