  1. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    Oh right, that explains its disappearance for a few days does it?
  2. The SPFL Angus League ££1 2018-19

    "Expletive" Jobsworth though!
  3. The SPFL Angus League ££1 2018-19

    Has the Montrose thread been punted? Can't see it here or on League 2 Forum. Hmm.

    I know it isn't Get tae Friockheim day yet but are any other Mo fans finding that after all these years in League 2 (formerly known as 3), it feels weird and even slightly illicit to be looking at another forum. I've just added SL1 and removed SL2 from "My News" on the BBC News app. I really find it hard to believe that we've finally got out of jail a.k.a. SL2. It's certainly taking a while for it to sink in. Having tasted freedom, I certainly hope we can stay out of there.

    Classic symptoms of tangingerphobia methinks!
  6. Come On Ye Mo - Montrose FC 2018/19

    We wouldn't say no to Boyler, if you'd still had him! ETA You did the same with Simon Murray, so a bit of pot calling kettle black tangerine there, (Although he wasn't a reject:just an ex-Arab.) We'd have him back too!

    Feel for you guys. We've been so lucky. 22 years - and the closest we've come to relegation was a playoff! (tongue very much in cheek) Hope 2018/19 is a better season for you and yes, I will be rueing my feeble attempt at wit, if we're in the same boat as you this time next year.
  8. Getting good at surviving playoffs though? ETA Congratulations Blue Brazil.
  9. Feel for Peterhead but congratulations Stenny.

    Just googled John Rankin and from his Twitter pic. looks like he's channeling Clark Kent. Let's hope he reveals his other identity in a Mo shirt!

    From your location, we could have our own derby. I have the equipment, following Santa's last visit to Toys'rus in Udon Thani. ETA would obviously require a paint job though!

    So really, what you're saying is that Montrose are the only proper team to have won it with such a high points tally, other that East Fife, who won it when it was called something different. The local rag here, which sadly last time I was back, had degenerated from a half decent paper to a "Merge Angus" effort, is the Montrose Review. The southern part of the Mearns had the Kincardineshire Observer, known as the "two minutes silence". The Mearns Leader was the paper for Stonehaven and northern end up to Portlethen. Don't know if they have survived as separate entities. I suspect not. Sad to see demise of decent local papers but think it's inevitable in this www.world.
  13. Hope Cowdenbeath play their best and do enough to stay in SPFL 2. No disrespect to Cove but hailing from a small town, I favour another smallish town team over a team of city "toonsers". I also remember the humiliation of getting beaten in the cup, donkeys ago at Allan Park and evidently still am harbouring a degree of trauma about this.
  14. League Champions Thread

    Compared with the tension of last week and much of the end of the season, things seem very chillaxed this week. It seems ages since Saturday now. Still coming to terms with the juxtaposition of "Montrose" and "winners", after decades of lazy epithets from hack (poor excuse for) journos: "strugglers", "lowly", "basement", "losers" etc. One thing I really sense, is what a massive relief it is not to have to undergo the purgatory of the playoffs. It seems to me to be as much a punishment for not winning, as it is an opportunity or second chance. A minimum of 360 minutes more football, spread over almost two weeks and often as not hundreds of miles of travelling to get promoted. Sod that for a game of soldiers! Unlike World Cups: playoffs, one competition, I am delighted my team is sitting out.
  15. Agree about Mcinally and in terms of mouthiness, Bluetoon fans are pretty circumspect. (It's a north-east thang.) Those with longer memories remember when Peterhead entered the SFL, they did spend more than most and tended to snap up other teams' promising players, which was annoying. Their fans on here defended this claiming this was because they were an "ambitious" club. Revenue from being a bigger town and healthier economy due to fishing and oil industries gave the club a perceived advantage over others, such as Montrose FC and this fuelled a degree of jealousy, which continues in certain quarters. (More recently, there have been several other clubs in the north-east and beyond, such as Formartine, which have been making life more challenging in terms of attracting players from the area.) I think these feelings are always going to exist when one club wields a financial advantage over others. Personally, I am just too delighted by my own team's performances and results this season to have any lingering ill will for Peterhead FC. They pushed us all the way and more than earned their place in the playoffs. People will have their reasons for favouring one team over another but as far as I am concerned, the playoffs are currently structured in a way, which favours the higher placed teams. League position does count in this regard and if a team does not make the most of home advantage in the second leg and the lower placed team overturns this, then I don't think there can be many complaints. So, as they say: "may the best team win".
