  1. Rock v Wheel - Saturday April 21st

    Expecting very little from this but you never know. As long as we don't chuck it again.
  2. Sons' sorrow

    An admirable sentiment and you obviously weren't among the sizeable number of Sons' supporters practically begging the referee to blow for full time after 85 mins against Livvy the other week. This season has witnessed some grim sights but that was up there.
  3. Sons' sorrow

    I don't necessarily want relegation, i'm simply able to understand why others do. And I don't think their stance is odd. And anyway, there's nothing at all lunatic about your post. A season in League 1 might offer a reboot of sorts for a fresh go at the Championship.
  4. Sons' sorrow

    If we go down I hope we follow up by winning the title. Ultimately I want us to win every match we play but I just don't anticipate being devastated if we go down.
  5. Sons' sorrow

    I don't think it's very odd. It's been a long, long time since we won more games than we lost in a season or had a noticeably positive goal difference. Supporters naturally tire of being the perennial underdog and wouldn't particularly mind being a medium-sized fish again. There's always the danger we could Cowdenbeath it and fall, and keep falling. Equally we could do what Cowdenbeath managed in 2012 and return at the first time of asking. One thing for sure is no-one is enjoying watching the team at the moment and either way something has to change.
  6. General Politics Thread

    Great post. It's exploitation pure and simple and these Rachman landlords have a lot to answer for.
  7. Dumbarton v Inverness - WEDNESDAY Night

    Not surprised to hear that attendance, it's a glorified friendly at the end of a dour season. It wasn't hard to find something else to do this evening. The entire club just seems dejected and we're headed in only one direction unless something unexpected happens.

    The lengths you'll go to find entertainment at Old Trafford...
  9. Dumbarton v Inverness - WEDNESDAY Night

    It may well not work but surely it makes sense to freshen up the starting 11 after Saturday's hounding? As it happens, I think we'll offer more going forward if we start with the more creative players. But nothing is guaranteed.
  10. That in itself is perhaps the most frustrating thing at the moment. We have some decent options at our disposal in this squad but their minutes are inexplicably limited. Meanwhile, to the surprise of no-one, another hopeful punt squirms out of Calum Gallagher's anguished reach...
  11. Some observations on today's shambles. Individual errors in defence are cropping up far more frequently now than at any other point in the season but it seems to me to only mask that the real problem continues to lie in attack. To be blunt, 3 of the 4 'forwards' that Aitken started with today aren't fit for purpose in this league and it really shows. Only Stirling gets pass marks for his first half performance. Contrastingly Stewart and (in particular) Burt must wonder what sea God they've wronged to not get a start in this team. They offered more in a few minutes than Seagal, Handling and Nisbet did for the entire match. I feel sorry for Grant Gallagher. He's not fully fit and he's not a right-back. A toxic mix which lead to a torrid afternoon, finely taken goal aside. We may well go down this season but I just wish it was with more than a whimper. There are reasonable options sitting about on the bench for us and it's frustrating beyond imagination to see us persist with the same dour approach that's seen us garner so little points this season. All that aside we'll probably win on Tuesday.
  12. Playing the Shame Game

    The general set-up at our ground can often fuel the fire of potential shame games, particularly for visiting full time clubs. One stand, towards which management teams have to make the 'long walk', coupled with visiting fans' genuine outrage of losing to a diddy team. Throw in any other extenuating circumstances and it can all end up a bit frenzied. The much-mentioned Morton match of 04 is a good example. as was Ian Murray's last match in charge of St. Mirren. Our 4-1 pumping of Hamilton in the penultimate game of the season a few years back went a bit 'shamey' as well. On the other hand Bonnyrigg was awful from our point of view.
  13. Looks like the perpetual injuries that have hampered us for the entire season are going to continue niggling away right to the death. It's anyone's guess who'll play right-back tomorrow, with our 4 main options sidelined. Ridiculous.
  14. Sons' sorrow

    97-98 saw the climax of an amazing 3yr run for us as well...
  15. Sons' sorrow

    Interestingly we have a kinder run-in (particularly that home:away ratio!) but we've just left ourselves far too much to do. One slip up, which could come as soon as tomorrow night, and it's over. All about momentum for the playoffs now I'd say.
