  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 'C'mon the Mo' 2017-18

    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.
  4. 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.
  8. Peterhead Vs Montrose

    Thanks for that helpful insight. As undeserving poor we will just have to be content with the three points.
  9. 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!
  10. 'C'mon the Mo' 2017-18

    After the last Peterhead game, doubted we would still be top of the league through till February. We are, just. Our fixtures for February are very tough. Hoped Berwick would at least take a point last night but at the end of the day, it isn't about other teams. It's every single match that counts. We don't need to look to other teams doing us a favour. Montrose simply have to take maximum points from every game, regardless of whether other circumstances, such as injuries etc. are favourable or not.
  11. Old Firm Colts in L2

    In all this, I am just wondering how a "minnow" nation such as Iceland, who t.b.h. were better known as a frozen foods chain, can develop football in a country less than 10% the size of Scotland, without an Old Firm to sustain their game. I am almost certain from the little I do know that Iceland's success of late is due to investment in sport at community level, not simply satisfying the whims of the "ugly sisters"...

    Well, that could have gone better (for Montrose).
