  1. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    Asides from the draw being an utter shambles, and the redraw being considerably worse for Montrose, because I don't use Facebook very often. I read all the comments ending with "like", as some kind of east coast vernacular "like". e.g. Templeman's six foot two, like.

    Bollan's gone... Please don't tell.
  3. The Mo vs The Albion

    I'm limited to insight of others and from highlights but from what I can glean, one of the main factors, assuming players play to their potential, will be which manager gets the tactics right to exploit the strengths and weaknesses of the teams. It's perhaps a statistical truism but the numbers favour a team which defends well over a team which has a strong attacking record but leaks goals. The perceived wisdom being that even a team with a relatively toothless forward line can nick a goal or two from dead-ball opportunities. In last year's Euros, Iceland showed how a team with limitations can achieve a lot through good discipline and playing to its strengths. Hoping that tomorrow, Stewart Petrie has the edge over Dave Mackay in getting the best from the players and mixing things up to come out on top.
  4. Left it late but Templeman did what was askit of him. Thanks Big Man! (90 + 2)! Cheerio wee blue mannie...
  5. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    "At least it's a home tie" (Berwick Rangers supporter before round 2.) As a Queen's fan said about drawing Montrose away: "not the end of the world." As King Kenny said: "maybes aye, maybes naw." Fear no foe! ETA Arabs Vs Linfield : Tangerines Vs Oranges. And they said this cup wasn't seeded!
  6. Big game for the Mo. Balmoor: never a happy hunting ground in the past. Can Stuart Petrie's revitalised Montrose finally banish the miseries? Thoughts ahead of Saturday? Heading home after a typical Saturday watching Montrose at Balmoor...

    It's more of a strip than a kit though, to be honest!
  8. 'C'mon the Mo' 2017-18

    I have it on good authority that the rules for the competition were clearly spelt out. The only alternative to playing on Saturday was a midweek fixture. These guys do not think outside the box, so the outcome was hardly unexpected. eta: Just seen that Stranraer are playing Jags U20s on Friday night, so my good authority can't have been that good. Don't know why Ayr weren't able to reschedule to Friday, unless it was due to Police Scotland cut-backs not allowing two such stellar events as an Irn Bru cup tie and Prestwick Air Show to take place so close together. Is there normally much crowd trouble at air shows? Was there much traffic chaos round Somerset Park last night? Roll on round three / quarter-final of the Diddy Cup.

    "I'll wait until we dismantle Montrose on Tuesday night and normal service resumes." somerset_lad00 An example of the kind of post revealing disquiet amongst the restless naives of the rustic weedgies following their "shock" one - two loss at home to the Smokies. Their moving the fixture to Tuesday night, supposedly due to the Prestwick Air Show's demands on policing, reeks of gamesmanship. Here's hoping the Mo can produce a result, very much contrary to the full-time, big team fans' expectations. Edited to add another gem from itzdrk... "Have the Montrose fans calmed down over having to travel a couple of hours midweek yet or will someone be setting themself on fire inside the ground in protest? " Remember, do not feed the trolls. They are more to be pitied than scorned upon.
  10. Montrose FC: exceeding expectations since... 19 hours ago. Gonnae keep it going please, and thank you.
  11. Ayr United vs Montrose

    Google translate into English please? Punctuation: "every little helps"...
  12. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    Clusterflunk from Beeb reporting on Irn Bru second round draw. Dumbarton home to Connah's Quay and away to Buckie Thistle*! Also had Goodwillie scoring a hat trick from last season in their latest second division news. Double face-palm emoji! *Could of course be their "Colt" team.
  13. Montrose -vs- Stenhousemuir

    So that constitutes referring to a team as a "laughing stock", as Neilly referred to it, does it? It's a comment like that, leads me to think that you are the ones needing to "pipe down".
  14. Montrose -vs- Stenhousemuir

    False memory syndrome. F.Y.I. though the Mo undoubtedly had their bad moments, they were never a "carry on" fitba team. And Dezzy's Stenny Simulators weren't exactly Barca either! Roll on Saturday. We fear no foe!
